The AM Nightshade

BandAlternativeRock

Explorative, innovative, charged indie-pop with potassium sulfate.

Biography

The AM Nightshade is made of 16 year old boys from the small, isolated town of Southern Pines, North Carolina. The lack of a music scene to draw upon made us draw inward to find the foundation for our music, which lead to the creation of interesting, unorthodox indie-pop compositions. Our sound has a modern, masculine approach while still being able to portray emotional depth. The sound is influenced by bands such as Modest Mouse, Interpol, and Radiohead.

Lyrics

Ten Tears

Written By: Quinn Flagg

Ten tears for those who still adore you
They'll rot to make sure no one ignores you
Take steps to break the bones of those who follow
Pull the noose around the people who won't grovel
Everyone still smiles at you
Everyone still laughs with you

I'd watch the rain crash down and flood the praises I proclaimed
I'd watch the dew drop down and its reflection was you and I
Won't you be the shore and watch the tide wash me away
Won't you be the sea and slowly swallow me alive

I'm here to shred your stained glass curtain
I'll push my thumbprint into the wet cement of your grave
Watch your actions, for father time has ears and eyes
Won't you see the scrawlings, as the walls give a penning cry

Wait here for the currents to protect you
Still shocked that the people won't forget you
Ten troops talking terrors that we won't know
Blame those amongst the people who we don't know
No one else cares to see
The misdeeds you dared to bring

Look little failure won't you dance before their eyes
Look little puppet won't you recognize the strings
Won't you watch the angels clench their golden hands
Won't you watch them grin as they hang you by your threads

I'm here to shred your stained glass curtain
I'll push my thumbprint into the wet cement of your grave
Watch your actions, for father time has ears and eyes
Won't you see the scrawlings as the walls give a penning cry

I'll shake you off with a mock and a curse
I'll shake you off with a mock and a curse
I'll shake you off with a mock and a curse
I'll shake you off with a mock and a curse

Trying

Written By: Quinn Flagg

hey leave it alone but wait what could the chance say

Heavy, unrelaxing, and you radiate in waves

It left awful mental scarring, pray it's beneficial change

And there's no way to rely, there's no way to relate

Can't you exercise a promise, can't you exercise restraint?

It was a good idea at the time

Sold in advance, snapped the wineglass, watched the shards fly

Leaving with guile, they had expectations sold short

Well, you would say it wasn't worth to even work for

Sold me a smile, told me weakness is relenting

It was trauma, it was terror, it was unable to contain

Paranormal, also tragic, ways to understate the claim

It was noxious, it was normal, it was nightmares left in bed

It was uncomfortably capable, quizzically open-end

I should've better thought this through

Sold in advance, snapped the wineglass, watched the shards fly

Leaving with guile, they had expectations sold short

Well, you would say it wasn't worth to even work for

Sold me a smile, told me weakness is relenting
