Biography

The music Space Between Words makes serves as an orgasmic vibrator for the horny teenage girl nestled inside all of our ear drums. And the follow up release to their successful debut album doesn't disappoint to stimulate. Valley of the Lizard King is a cathartic exploration guided by psychedelic grooves and exciting guitars. Recorded and mastered at The Armory Studio hidden away in the art district of Miami, Fl with acclaimed English Producer and tour manager Daniel Wills, it's a maturing evolution from out in the ether with deeply cerebral lyricism. It demonstrates the technical brilliance this young band exudes, while presenting a new roaring sound.

The release comes off the heels of their three-week SXSW 2012 East Coast tour. It was released through SESAC and distributed by the Ingrooves Fontana label, a Universal Records Music Group.

In the two short years since forming in 2010 this soulful rock band that carries an air of alternative noise with an edgy 70’s garage bite has toured throughout the East and West Coasts, played major festivals, put out two hailed records and garnered the attention of press.

Their debut album “And We All Follow the Sun” was released in October 2010 and went on to be chosen as "One of Miami’s Best Albums of 2010" by both the Miami New Times and The Miami Herald. Shortly after the release of their album, Space Between Words signed with SESAC. In December 2011 their debut album went on to chart in the Top 20 of CMJ's issue 1229 at number 18 in Top Radio Adds and surfed on over 150 radio station airwaves. They have been featured in many state and national press, blogs and radio programs. Gaining attention for their exciting live performances, creative music videos and continued accomplishments by outlets like NPR, NBC, and The Village Voice.

Currently, the band is spending the summer touring Florida and the South East. Their new EP will have a limited vinyl release following their first summer tour on July 13th. Staying true to their visual efforts, there are currently three music videos for the new EP already in the editing phase that all interconnect. The first video single "Tiger" will be released June 19th. There are dates for a major September college tour coming soon.

"Just coming off sets in L.A. and SXSW, the group seemed more polished than ever, playing off the crowd and riding a crescendo of panicky mayhem before winding down to mellow grooves in which lead singer Steve leaned in close to the microphone and Verdi killed it on the guitar."
- Gabriela Garcia, The Village Voice

Lyrics

Overcomplicated Mind

Written By: Space Between Words

Do you think there is a God in space (out there)?
Surfing on radio waves
So you’re caught up in the world’s fate (how unfair)
Gamma rays, or will it rain meteorites?
Is Al Gore right?
Will it end in a fight?
I bet it will be out of sight
Oh who knows?
Oh who cares?

C’mon, C’mon!
You’ve got an overcomplicated mind
C’mon, C’mon!
You’ve got it working overtime
Hey listen, listen!
It keeps you up all night!!
C’mon, C’mon!
You’ve got an overcomplicated mind

Do you feel like you’re disillusioned (what)?
Flail your arms in all your confusion (ok)
Do you think about those plans you made (oh yeah)?
To write a book, to never fade (away)
Do I look my age?
Will I be the same,
in five years
how will my bills get paid?
Oh who knows?
Oh fuck it, who cares?

C’mon, C’mon!
You’ve got an overcomplicated mind
C’mon, C’mon!
You’ve got it working overtime
Hey listen, listen!
It keeps you up all night!!
C’mon, C’mon!
You’ve got an overcomplicated mind

::Guitar Solo::

C’mon, C’mon!
You’ve got an overcomplicated mind
C’mon, C’mon!
You’ve got it working overtime
Hey listen, listen!
It keeps you up all night!!
C’mon, C’mon!
You’ve got an overcomplicated mind

Things Children Do

Written By: Space Between Words

Run, run, run, come and run into me
And we’ll pretend that we didn’t mean to meet
Spin, spin, spin, come out spinning with me
And we’ll pretend that we’re living out our dreams
We’ll pretend that we’re living out our dreams
Sail, sail, sail, leave the sailing to me
And we’ll pretend that we’re lost at sea
We’ll pretend to forget everything, cause’ we’ll be lost at sea (oh yeah)

Well I’m too young and you’re too old
I’m uncultured, just a little too slow
You’re just here for sex as usual

And I just want to get really high
But you say that I need to get a life
My darling I’m sure that I’m losing my mind
So come what may we’ll survive

Play, play, play, c’mon and play with me
And we’ll pretend that we don’t have feelings
Swim, swim, swim, come out and swim with me
And we’ll pretend that this water makes us clean
We’ll pretend to forget everything, cause’ we’ll be lost at sea (oh yeah)

Well I’m too young and you’re too old
I’m uncultured, just a little too slow
You’re just here for sex as usual

And I just want to keep getting high
You say that you just want to start your life
Oh well darling I’m sure that I’ve lost my mind
So come what may we’ll survive
And I just wish that I was able to fly
This is life, my friends, so say goodbye

The Beast

Written By: Space Between Words

My friend won’t you please read this letter (oh)
Oh my friend things have changed since my wedding
What I’m going to ask of you is quite perturbing (ohhh, oh oh)
Empty six in my head and kill my body

Can you hear it, three then two?
Banging on the door, standing before you
My baby has done driven me insane
My baby has done stolen my name

My friend I thought that I got rid of her
Six-feet of slate and dirt under my study
What her magic can do to you is quite disturbing
Empty six in my head and kill my body

Can you hear it, three then two?
Banging on the door, standing before you
My baby has done driven me insane
My baby has done stolen my name

::Solo::

Can you hear it, three then two?
Banging on the door, standing before you
My baby has done driven me insane
My baby has done stolen my name

Given Good Times

So you tell me that you are tired of waking up to everyone screaming
About all the stupid things you can’t remember from last evening
Whenever you opened your mouth only venom spilled out
Dressed up in simply the finest, you made the room scream and shout
Fixed on your most recent affair, you’re a stranger to all who were there
Lost to the lights and the crowd, you’re such the big shot now

And I’ll sell my soul tonight
to the first good looking thing in sight
God damn I don’t mind, so long as I make it to sunrise
Given good times I know these things will kill me from inside
And good god damn I don’t mind
so long as I enjoy the ride

You partied will all the pills in such a shameless display
Inhaling all of your thrills, your nights just drift on for days
You know you can’t keep up this pace living out of a carry on case
started with such a hungry heart, now you’re just a hollowed out space
Impressed by your blank glare. What does it take to get there?
Lost to the lights and the crowd, you’re such a big deal now

And I’ll sell my soul tonight
to the first good looking thing in sight
God damn I don’t mind, so long as I make it to sunrise
Given good times I know these things will kill me from inside
And good god damn I don’t mind
so long as I enjoy the ride

::Guitar Solo::

And I’ll sell my soul tonight
to the first good looking thing in sight
God damn I don’t mind, so long as I make it to sunrise
Given good times I know these things will kill me from inside
And good god damn I don’t mind

Tiger

I don't mind if you don't mind
We all need an escape sometime
Feel your skin against mine
Don't you want to feel our bones intertwine?
You came here intent to impress
with the way your body hangs that dress
Guide my hand Velvet Caress
Scream out now, “Make me a mess!”
Yes all you want, Yes all you see
Are all the terrible things you'll do to me
Oh darling you've been the best
So carve your name into my chest

You got me feelin' electric
Our bodies are charged and going frantic

I don't mind if you don't mind
Desire like this can't be denied
Explosive by design
It's only natural and in our spine
You got my skin set afire
And all we can do is only conspire
to tear away at each-others' attire
This is a lust only we can inspire
Yes all they want, and all they see
Are all the terrible things you'll do to me
Oh darling you've been the best
So carve your name into my chest

You got me feelin' electric
Our bodies are charged and going frantic

Oh don't you panic
Oh darling you're finally just feelin' alive!

Valley of the Lizard King

When your mind is not stable
Oh when your soul is not able
The desert wind whispers, “I am here.”

I am a stranger to this strange place
With the weight of the desert sun upon my faith
I fought to ascend the blazing red peaks
My only comfort was the warm valley breeze
It said,

When your mind is not stable
Oh when your soul is not able
I am here

As I stood atop the jagged cliffs
I thought of why I came to this
The Valley of the Lizard King
Beckoning inside of my dreams
I was hoping to find your clues
to evolve into something new

When your mind is not stable
Oh when your soul is not able
The desert wind whispers, “I am here.”

::Guitar Solo::

The desert wind whispers,

When your mind is not stable
Oh when your soul is not able
The desert wind whispers
When your mind is not stable
Oh when your soul is not able
I am here

Catharsis

As I stared at the mass of colored lines on the LCD
it came to me that all these things were all I had left to speak with my passing friend
And mama said, and mama said...

Instrumental Intro

Learn to love
Learn to live
Learn to love
Learn to forgive

Cuase' everything
oh yes everything
You see and feel
You think is real
Even you and me
It's all temporary

Give all your love away
Don't worry no one is judging you dear
Give it to all you know
Don't worry no one is judging you hear
Give it before you go

Learn to love
Learn to live
Learn to love
Learn to forgive

Give all your love away
Don't worry no one is judging you dear
Give it to all you know
Don't worry no one is judging you hear
Give it before you go
