BandAlternativeRock

Sleeprunner will remind you of "an accessible version of Dream Theatre [sic] with a killer rhythm section." Sleeprunner is more "rock & progressive (as in actually progressive) influenced, & give a heavier vibe with their sound." Sleeprunner is a "REAL GOOD surprise!!!"

Biography

Sleeprunner is a Boston based original band, born in the late summer of 2005 by four friends, half of which related by blood, 3/4ths of which have played in four different bands with one of the others, from three areas in Massachusetts. Each member shares the same passion and respect for the music that we listen to and create. We've been influenced by every musician, band, artist, etc., be it good or bad, hard and heavy or soft and delicate, serious and urgent or comical and inexplicable. We attempt to translate our lives, experiences, thoughts, and emotions through a bunch of instruments, electronics, and microphones.

Where this would seem the time and place to woo you, the reader, with enticing metaphors and worn out adjectives about our music and us individually, we'd prefer to leave the thesaurus hunting duties to the press. Simply put, we may not be a band to judge in the first 5 seconds of a tune. Think of your favorite drama/suspense movie or television series. Most likely, you didn't judge it in the first few minutes, you had to see it all the way through to the end, and then watch it a few more times, or the next few episodes before it really grew on you. Think of Sleeprunner like that. Instead of listening to us while you vacuum the rug, put us in your car stereo for a long drive.

Lyrics

Funeral Of A God

Written By: William Galatis

Broken down by alcohol, the pain is on your face
If you found a way to live, you found it in the taste
It's the burden of controlling the facade that did you in
Wasting all your energy while the ice is thin

We have a common thread
We feel the same thing
One indication pushed me away
We have a common thread
We feel the same thing
Endemic heals me, shows me the way

Symptom of habitual self-indulgent scheme
to risk the loss of everything and embrace that poison key
to reveal an empty casket with a body too young to see
that his life and love and dreams above are now his eulogy
We have a common thread, we feel the same thing
One indication pushed me away
We have a common thread, we feel the same thing
Endemic heals me, shows me the way

Buried down by alcohol, the pain has won the race
If you found a way to death, it killed you with the taste

We have a common thread, we feel the same thing
One indication pushed me away
We have a common thread. We feel the same thing
Endemic heals me, shows me the way

Voiceover

Written By: Michael Scrima

Don't you think that we should just ask ourselves
Why it is history repeats itself?
File away the specs for the unknown
If you supply the will, I'll bring the won't

Before I even open my mouth
You look and words suddenly come out

Ventriloquism set as your forte
Dining on monologue as a gourmet
Lip-synching demographics to the new
Who won the race and set the tone for you?

To throw the voice is as to breathe the air
Your tongue with their word makes me crystal clear
Hyper-extension of the previous
Listening to everything but what you hear
