Biography

Three music students were beginning to wonder when they would meet the band they had been searching for.
All had high ambitions and were searching for a channel in which to properly express themselves.
Two were studying sound recording, one violin performance and were recommended to each other through mutual friends.
After some discussion, they met at singer Tyler Merriman's house to jam.

Sometimes when conditions are just right, it feels like the stars align. The sonics in that jam room were inspiring.
They played songs for each other and immediately began writing to them. A few months later fate struck again when they met their drummer, Zach Samuel.
He added a style that Merriman, Sven Sorhus, and Alex Woodbury agreed was mature and insightful. Since then they have been playing shows and writing
material for an EP.

Lyrics

Smalltown Parade

Written By: Sidereal (Tyler Merriman)

A thousand people in the street
Clappin' hands and stompin' feet
Everything will change today ah yeah

The man is here they came to see
Came to hear his public speech
What he says they won't believe just yet, he says

The time has come it surely won't be easy
To fall into the arms of sweet surrender
Time will tell the cracks we will fall into
Smashing into walls to see what it renders

The people want a sweet fa├žade
A marching-down small-town parade
What he says they won't conceive just yet

And all he wants is to tell them
A fire cannot start without a spark, he says

The time has come it surely won't be easy
To fall into the arms of sweet surrender
Time will tell the cracks we will fall into
Smashing into walls to see what it renders

If we put this into higher hands
We will be the biggest winners
If we set our sails to dry land
Our sinking ship will surely see the shore again

Innocence

Written By: Sidereal (Tyler Merriman)

Self-control was never your strength
Did you ever think at all?
Touching me, losing your innocence
Projecting the future on the wall

I can't find no solace in this world (2x)

Closing walls, the smell of your skin
Think I've got the bends for good
Trying to find some closure, but too much exposure did me in

I can't find no solace in this world (2x)

A True Story

Written By: Sidereal (Tyler Merriman)

And it came without warning
With a bone-chilling cold
Through our clothes in the summer rain

We gave a last laugh to the times we spent waiting
For the world to change

So don't you ever say to me that our lives together were incomplete
I'm here to take a stand
For all thats right in this broken land

So tonight i put my anchor down
And lose myself inside the sound
In a failed attempt to make things right
I try to keep you around

We never could imagine as children in the fields
Playing hide and seek, day to day and week to week
What truth would tell in a spell

So don't you ever say to me that our lives together were incomplete
I'm here to take a stand
For all thats right in this broken land

So tonight I put my anchor down
And lose myself inside the sound
In a failed attempt to make things right
I try to keep you around
