Subjekt 2 Change (S2C)

Subjekt 2 Change (S2C)

BandMetalPunk

Subjekt2Change is the synthesis of surgically-precise guitar-playing, breakneck-speed drums, fluid bass, and throaty vocals. From Metal to Reggae, Punk to Surf, there music will forever blur the lines of modern day genres, but will always be distinctly S2C.

Biography

~S2C: a brief (Very Brief) History~

Starting in 2001 as a 20 minute set of broken guitar strings, drunken obscenities, and a few kickin’ tunes, S2C hit the ground runnin' and never looked back.

Fast forward to 2007, with 2 released E.P.'s, 1 Full-Length, countless Compilations, 4 west-coast tours, insane amounts of shows throughout the Pacific Northwest, they trudge on, relentlessly driving towards the simplistic goal of getting their music heard.

The boys of S2C call themselves Subjekt2Change for a reason – they have musically set no limits and give you every reason to listen to what they have to say. Not only will these boys show you a really great time in about 40 minutes, they’ll ask you to think twice before you accept the same old song done by the same old band that sounds exactly like the song they did before and the one before that. They pride themselves with a live show that never disappoints, whether they’re playing a packed club or a house party only two hours from hell, they'll grab your eardrum's from note one and won't ever let go.

Lyrics

Half-Open Door

Written By: Scott Estes

V1: I've known you for so long,
it feels we've always been together,
but now we're apart, you crushed my heart,
Will I ever feel this way again?

Can I ever trust my heart to love,
well I don't know,
yet still I struggle on, will I be strong?
enough to fill this empty hole.

Chorus: You took it all away,
There's nothing I can say
I wish this was a dream
You were never what you seemed.

V2: thinking that I knew you,
realizing I was wrong,
You only let me in so far,
and then you shut the door.
I'll never know what caused you
to throw our love away,
for pointless lust, destroying trust,
I expected so much more.

Break: Why'd it have to be this way?

Waiting

Written By: Scott Estes

--Waiting--

Another day left in the cold,
Frostbitten feet show through cracked shoes, so worn and old.
Wind rips through tattered rags, ripping life away.
No tears left to spill, loss barely kept at bay.

You had the answers for them all.
Thought I knew the path for me.
Said you'd never break and fall.
How would I know, why should I see?

The one missing life was me.

Waking up on hardened stone,
A man smiles down at you, offers to take you home.
The fear seeps in; you see the malice in his eyes.
Run hard, run fast, evade the serpent in disguise.

You had the answers for them all.
Thought I knew the path for me.
Said you'd never break and fall.
How would I know, why should I see?

The one missing life was me.

Time takes forever, yet where do you go?
Trapped in this senseless circle, can't leave the life you know.
Can't foresee better, than the life created by choice.
This life you lead, personal greed, dreams lost with each long day you wait....

8 Foot Squared

Written By: Scott Estes

- 8 Foot Squared -

So here I am again, glaring at these off-white walls,
Picture of a family I never see, a couple've of those stress relief balls.
Seems no matter what I do, my life will never change.
Life lived in 8 feet squared, not much room to re-arrange.

But then I think, does it have to be this way?
one measly office wall catches fire,
Really has career-wide sway?
It's been forever since then, ok 2 years, maybe closer to 1.
Can't you people just let it go, what can I do? Guess I'll have some more fun.....

Fax machine, it's burning bright, flames and ink blown out've sight.
Every little spark reminds me how.
You pass me up, you knock me down, hardly see if I'm around,
But burning toner sure got your attention now

That, I'm better.

Now they notice every move I make, albeit limited by 8 feet squared.
Wait a minute, how did they know it was me, oh yeah, I usually have a full head of hair.
Prolly should have thought that one through, could've held this job for a while.
Just another fantastic notch, in my favorite psychiatric file.

But then I think, does it have to be this way?
one CEO's car catches fire,
Really has career-wide sway?
It's been forever since then, ok 2 years, maybe closer to 1.
Can't you people just let it go, what can I do? Guess I'll have some more fun.....

At least I'm done, staring at those off-white walls.
Picture actually came with the frame, never used the stress relief balls.
New place is 100 times better, best damn food I've ever been fed.
No more life in 8 feet squared, it's 8 X 10, and it's even padded.
