Biography

Souls a Fuse was born out of a sincere desire to rise above the commonplace cliché of the modern rock genre. It is a fusion of minds and hearts, a clenched fist thrust upward in search of the perfect place for the perfect passion. It is grounded in the knowledge that music is more than just distorted guitar and fleshy vocals; it is an emotive language of intense catharsis. It is a reminder that sometimes we hear so chaotically that it’s hard to filter out what’s most important to us, that sometimes we need to step back – to not simply hear, but to listen. It is an invitation. Don’t just hear. And when you listen…

Listen to this.

Their self-titled debut effort took over three years to complete, after loading in and out of the studios and computers of producer Andrew Bush, mixer Tommy Walter (of Abandoned Pools/Glacier Hiking), and mastering engineer Gavin Lurssen (of Matchbox20/Blue October renown). The band will tell anyone the same thing. This has been well worth the wait. It’s disappointing to think that a lot of those who listen at first will think that this record is about a girl, because it’s not about a person, or a thing – it’s about the experience. This experience. Life gives everyone their own little slice, and Souls a Fuse’s message is that it’s not about the hand you’re dealt. It’s about having the balls to call when you have to call and, perhaps even more importantly, to fold when it’s time to fold.

In the end, this group of uniquely talented individuals knows it is infinitely more important to keep your dreams in sight than it is to win every emotional battle. Infused in every lyric and riff is the conviction that in the worst of times, there is always something more. This is the hope that drives them, the knowledge that they seek, and the hardest lesson that any human being will ever learn. Because not everyone has the strength to say goodbye.

Lyrics

Fast Forward

Written By: Ryan Schicht

Verse: Wasted so much
Just to waste it all
Fell face first upon this
Stage I put my heart on
Now what do I have to show?

I've got no answers
For mistakes I've made
I wake up breathing
But I'm barely alive
When will my dreams and reality collide
Let's play it through

Chorus: Fast forward to another life
Where you and I can finally feel alive
It's the perfect place for a perfect passion
My heart screams
For Possibility
Please, don't let me down
Please, don't let me down

Verse: I never said it till it had to be said
They had it better than I ever did
It's just something I miss
About the way she kissed that boy

The sunset Skies
And those blue girl eyes
All the times I tried
So hard to understand
All the ways
That I go wrong
So let's slow it down

Fast forward to another life
Where you and I can finally feel alive
It's the perfect place for a perfect passion
My heart screams
For Possibility
Please, don't let me down
Please, don't let me down

Slow it down
Play it through for you
Slow it down
Play it through for you

If we can find the time
To make thigns right
I will

Fast forward to another life
Where you and I can finally feel alive
It's the perfect place for a perfect passion
My heart screams
For Possibility
Please, don't let me down
Please, don't let me down

Wasted so much
Just to waste it all
It's just something I miss
About the way she kissed that boy
So let's Fast Forward

Verse1:
I know not everything stays the same
And our feelings sometimes change
Don't get me wrong I've been out of touch
And I feel too much
I travel these roads like the blood within my veins
Circulating memories that get me nowhere
I'm going nowhere fast
Just let me bleed

Chorus:
Just let me in from your heart into your mind
You wont mind me when your the star of everything I hear
You're all I ever hear

Verse2:
And now its quiet
I get so quiet planning ways to steal your heart
And if I did could you learn to trust a broken heart and all the promises that it makes?
Cuz just like the butterfly that you pulled down
They mean so much more off the ground

Bridge:
Its just the difference and the similarites between the heart and the mind
The truth is hard to find
