Biography

For those of you who have visited before, welcome back. For those first time visitor, you may be asking yourself this question- what does reaLation. mean? It was born from two separate ideas actually. First of all, the songs the band writes seem to focus on real world problems, issues and concerns. They try to shed light on subject areas that were either taboo or ignored in the past, or issues that have yet to come to the surface. Or in simple terms, true reality. Secondly, we feel one of the most important facets of human existence is the ability to relate to one another and the environment and society with exist in. The songs that have truly turned us on the most are the ones we really related to. There have been songs that we have been able to relate to right away and others that have taken an experience or life circumstance to create the connection. It is from this that the term reaLation. was created and we feel it truly reflects what we are accomplishing as artists.

Lyrics

Tortured Lies

Written By: Vincent Lane

LET THE TRUTH BE KNOWN

ALL IS LOST WHEN ALL ALONE

WITH ALL I GAVE

AND ALL YOU TOOK FROM ME

LET IT BE WRITTEN IN STONE

YOU LIED

WELL I HOPE YOU'RE SATISFIED

HOPE YOU'VE MADE AMENDS

YOU HAVE LET MY MADNESS CREEP IN AGAIN

BUT IF I CAN'T HAVE YOU

YOU BETTER BELIEVE NO ONE ELSE WILL

IF I CAN'T HAVE YOU

I DON'T WANT YOU TO...

ALL YOU DO IS LIE

BUT AS THE SMOKE CLEARS

IT OPENS MY EYES

I HAVE FINALLY COME TO REALIZE

BOTH YOU AND I LIVE

SIDE BY SIDE

TRAPPED UNDER ICE

DROWNING IN TORTURED LIES

ALL YOU DO IS LIE
