Biography

Schema, based out of NW Arkansas, formed in January of 2003. They began playing local shows while building a following in the local music scene and getting promotion from local radio stations. In August of 2003 the guys headed to Detroit to demo their material. After gathering some national touring, from east coast to the west coast and everywhere in between, the band finished up their debut album "the declining relationship between the mind and the motive" which was released in April of 2005.

Schema's recent EP shows they have the potential to make their mark in the music scene with their blend of melodic rock and aggressive riffs behind an often frustrated vocal pattern. Vocalist, Avrivett, uses a wide range of dynamics and ethereal melodic phrasing which compliment the soft, ambient textures and often heavy, droning guitar riffs. To complete the rhythmic dynamism the guys focus on the syncopated pattern and harmony relationship between the bass and drums.

Lyrics

between the two

Written By: schema

don’t hold me in
when I am reaching out
I’ll finish my point
or suffer doubt
I’ll take your words
for what they really are
I’ll chew them up
just to suffer more

so can you hear me now

don’t hold me back
when I have let you go
don’t mistake my love
for something so
I’ll clear my mind
to better store
I’ll make you mine
just like before

so can you hear me now

an uninvited guest

Written By: schema

bending
completely open
nothing seems to change
sedate me
to unveil this secrets shallow breathing
now you’re calm against the water, keep it still
and i will
I caught myself on my sleeve
and took the chance to not neglect this
but i will

did you mean to leave me gasping?
or did you just forget...

...this breeze
standing before me
to give me
a taste of my memory
i make words for what I need...
...and you'll see
close your eyes and let me dream
that you're just as interesting...or i will

did you mean to leave me gasping? or did you just forget...

i wish that i could see right through to see right through you

i wish that i could just forget

the prelude to a finale

Written By: schema

Holy mother, as your gripping me
I’m getting chills
This undeniable momentum is pressing in
To expose us to our deepest fears
Motionless; a spirit and a soul is what matters most

Holy mother
Your children are dying
Your children are dead
Collapsible appendages

Folding to the ground,
the ground where these ghost lay in full white sheets
To expose us to all our deepest fears
Time is a whore and she stripped us down

Holy mother
Your children are dying
Your children are dead
Collapsible appendages

Now full in black dress unto the funeral procession
Enticing the sons and daughters; mothers and fathers
To make amends through arranged confessions

Holy mother
Your children are dying
Your children are dead
Collapsible appendages

Seek rest, my love, in these caskets they’re selling
