The Assembly

BandAlternativeRock

Swirling keyboards, grinding guitars, and soaring choruses describe this 4-piece from Chicago. Haunted vocals are delivered in a precise sonic attack. With 2 self released EP's and a full length on the way, The Assembly are set to have a big year in 2007.

Biography

What was once feared is now loved. What was once hated is now accepted. In a time when lies and deceit are mistaken as truth with reckless abandon, The Assembly plot on with meticulous precision...
Self-produced at Center Neptune, The Assembly continue to musically bombard with their own brand of distopic rock, fueled with themes of armageddon, conspiracy, and political strangleholds.

The Assembly have been featured guests on Q101's Crash Test Radio, Local 101, Mancow's Morning Madhouse, and Fearless Radio's Live Music Binge. Both EP's can be found at Reckless Records, Lori's Planet of Sound, Record Emporium, Hard-Boiled Records, CDBABY.COM, and Apple iTunes.

Lyrics

Never Even True

Written By: Dave Suh/ The Assembly

Never Even True

Time keeps dragging me away
Further every day
Leading me astray

Fear is tearing me apart
Grips me from the start
Deep into my heart

And everything that made me want to die for you
Was never even true
Everything that made me want to die for you
Was never even true
Never even true

Hate has branded me alone
Stolen all I own
Body and my soul

It just takes time to heal all of the pain
And make me feel again
Somehow it still remains

And everything that made me want to die for you
Was never even true
Everything that made me want to die for you
Was never even true
Never even true

All I ever wanted, wanted you to see
All I ever wanted, wanted you to be
Was with me

Hate has branded me alone
Stolen all I own
Body and my soul

Everything that made me want to die for you
Was never even true

Everything…..

Paranoia Will Destroy Ya

Written By: Dave Suh/ The Assembly

Paranoia Will Destroy Ya

All the things you never said to me
All the things you never said
You got the time I need some answers
It’s not so perfect

If everything was never meant to be
If everything was never meant
The only thing I know for certain
Is to trust no one

You fade away
And I’ve forgotten everything that you said
You fade away

If everything was never meant for me
I’ve got no time now for regrets
The one thing I can’t remember
You cannot forget

And all the lies you tried to keep from me
It’s now time for my revenge
I need a sign of pure devotion
And trust completely

You fade away
And I’ve forgotten everything that you said
You fade away

Half a broken heart
And half a broken mind
The paranoia starts and stops

You fade away…

Strange Ideas

Written By: Dave Suh/ The Assembly

Strange Ideas

All the airwaves come in clean
As I wait here for you
And all the time I’m suffering
And you’re nowhere near me

Too late, too slow
Now the pain and suffering
Come crashing down on me

Strange Ideas
Can’t stay clear (Don’t you know)

As a job I’m pulling teeth
On a west side corner
You’re here right next to me
In my mind don’t you know

It’s too late, too slow
On the edge of sanity
But I’m still here for you now

Strange Ideas
Can’t stay clear

And it’s too late now to try
Cause I’m living out a lie
And it’s hard to say the words (so long)
Cause it’s too late to be heard

Strange Ideas
Can’t stay clear (Don’t you know)

Life on Fire

Written By: Dave Suh/ The Assembly

Life on Fire

What do we have to say
What do we have to do
Do I have to stay
And bleed for you?

What do you have to say
What do you have to prove
Who do we have to blame
Me or you?

Sometimes I feel my life is on fire
Sometimes I feel so all alone
Sometimes I fear my only desires
Afraid of losing all control

What do you have to say
What do you have to lose
Why do I have to stay
Free from you?

Forget the lies
Forget the pain
What do you have to say?

Sometimes I feel my life is on fire
Sometimes I feel so all alone
Sometimes I fear my only desires
Afraid of losing all control

Solo

Sometimes I feel my life is on fire
Sometimes I feel so all alone
Sometimes I fear my only desires
Afraid of losing all control
