Hard-driving, tribalistic, rhythmic journey into a tailspin of soulful phrases and squeemishly resounding guitar riffs that utter the true course of a mere existance as humans and beyond.

Biography

We all tried not to stare at the sun constantly, but we seem to be able to see the world as it is through a fractured lens and not bifocals. Our music reflects the not-so distant past, which could unknowingly be the future of mankind from a different perspective. All we need to do is get people to understand what life is really all about.

Lyrics

Hollow

Written By: Words and music by Phil Morse and Terence Shapiro

Objecting to the rules you follow
Resonating hole that rings... so hollow
Exhausted from the words you speak
Insinuated doubts you keep... are weakened
Such a violated source of intuition
Left with what you hav as your condition
So read between the lines your tracing outward
Arriving to the point of moving onward
Chorus:
And I can't wait 'til the moment
Arises within my own torment
Within my own torment
Within my own torment

Verse2:
Every battle dealt within
Has broken every mortal sin...for so long
Looking forward to the pain
I'll probably want to live again...and move on
Domesticated lives we settle down for
But no one really knows what they should live for
Caught up in the rift of good intentions
But none of us seem to want to listen

Bridge:
It doesn't matter if I die
At least I have an alibi
Trapped within a crowded room
I'm trying not to be consumed
Some of us identify
With the older ones who've died
Categorically in syncopation
Chorus:
And I can't wait 'til the moment
Arises within my own torment
Within my own torment
Within my own torment
