BandRockAlternative

Creed, Incubus, Nickelback, Chevelle, Rage, Seether, Puddle of Mudd, all of the above bands got together and had one big love session and thus spawned Sounds of Silence!

Biography

Sounds of Silence first came to be back in 2002. What started out as just something to do every other month soon became a very serious ordeal. The band originated in the Hartwell/Danielsville, GA area. After playing the locals there they then took their act to Athens where they have built and are continuing to build a strong and dedicated fan base. They won the 2004 Battle of the Bands and tied in the 2005 at Last Call in Athens, beating out a massive number of other great bands. S.O.S. continue to thrive in the Athens music scene bringing a fresh breath of rock and roll air to a town where real rock music has been put on the back burner. If your into aggressive, melodic, in your face, big balls, rock and roll music then Sounds of Silence is what you've been looking for!

Lyrics

Breakdown

Written By: Brandon Duncan

Breakdown
Today is the day that Ill die
Giving up everything inside
Im broken down and empty
Im looking for someone to save me

Why would you ever leave me breaking down inside
Why cant I see your face or hold you one last time
Ive tried to live my life just one mistake at a time
So why, why

Today is the day Ill open my eyes
Ill let out the pain Ive held inside
When Im not broke Im breaking
Ill look for the life youve taken

Give me a reason I shouldnt take my things and walk away
Ive weathered this season of your emptiness too long to stay
You say that you love me, say that you need me, but you just threw that all away
Well now that Im leaving, therell be no deceiving, and I think Ill be better off that way

Fallen

Written By: Brandon Duncan

Fallen Away
Do you remember the last time we talked?
I cant forget those things that I said
To you oh God please forgive me,
Ive fallen and fallen, deep into meinto me

What was it that I did, to make me this way?
I had no intention of falling astray
Would you please come down, rescue me
Im crawlin and crawlin, wont you help mehelp me

And I cant even be who I need to be
Im living a life that I cant seem to leave
I walk in the darkness no light I can see
Wont you send down your mercy, return to me?

I thought I had it all figured out
How could I leave you and follow the crowd
This torment within me keeps growing inside
Its burning, its burning, its burning!

Quicksand

Written By: Brandon Duncan

Verse:
I feel it, when you touch me
All the emptiness I’ve felt it finally leaves me
All the pieces, of this puzzle
That I could not place until you came and saved me

Chorus:
Tell me
What you need
Show me
How to get back up now that you’re bringing me down, breaking me down…break

Verse:
I’ve fallen, in the quicksand
Like a prisoner chained down to the floor again
And this (the) disease that is in me
Flowing through my veins it’s eating me alive from inside

Chorus:
Tell me
What you need
Show me
How to get back up now that you’re bringing me down, breaking…me…down

Bridge:
All the days that I wait for you to come out of your cage
When your life, it makes no sense and how you want to take it away
I’ll be there…I’ll be waiting for you, to catch you when you fall
Falling down, Falling down, and you bring me down with you

Chorus:

The Truth

Written By: Brandon Duncan

(Verse)
In my eyes you’re all I need
The shame inside won’t let me see
The truth that lies beneath those sheets you hide away

But now I’m finding the truth you’re hiding
A parasite that grows inside me
The petty things you use to blind me from reality

(Chorus)
But I can’t break these chains that are taking over me
I try to push away but the pressure’s killing me
And I can’t take this weight, (that’s) it’s crashing down on me
I’m breaking at the seams so stay away from me

(Verse 2)
In you’re eyes I’m all you need
The pain I hide won’t let you see
That thin red line between deceit, you’ve lied to me

But now you’re finding the truth I’m hiding
The paradox that burns inside me
The little things I use to spite you when you least expect

(Chorus)
But I can’t break these chains that are taking over me
I try to push away but the pressure’s killing me
And I can’t take this weight, (that’s) it’s crashing down on me
I’m breaking at the seams so stay away from me

Sunday

Written By: Brandon Duncan

(Verse 1)
On a Sunday afternoon
Sitting in my living room
I received a call from you
Telling me we were through
All my life I’ve prayed for someone
Someone like you
But the life that I once shared with you
Was given to somebody new

(Chorus)
I can’t breathe no more
Since you left me here
You left me all alone
With no one here to care

(Verse 2)
On a Sunday afternoon
Sitting in my living room
I received a call from you
Telling me we were through
All my life I’ve prayed for someone
Someone like you
But the life that I once shared with you
Was given to somebody new

(Bridge)
No one left to care

(Chorus)

(Outro)
