The Collision

 Wooster, Ohio, USA
BandAlternativeRock

We are a band influenced by bands like Edison Glass, Emery and Deas Vail. We play music that is like nothing in the main stream music industry today with interesting lyric and chordal writing with strange time signatures yet with a twist of fun and catchy choruses.

Biography

We are a band influenced by the musicians around us such as our friends from Me In Motion (Who just put out their debut album on itunes and are writing for artists such as the News Boys). We have grown together after 5 years of playing together since being only 10 and 11 years old. Since, we have gone on to win a city battle of bands here in Wooster and played in front of approx. 3,500 people at our fireworkds display as a result of winning the competition. We have opened for bands such as The Great Transparency, Shine Bright Baby, This Fires Embrace (and were scheduled to share the stage with Stars Go Dim back in march which was cancelled- This is all before the age of 16). We have played in the whereabouts of 150 shows since becoming a band in 2007. We are putting out our first official full length album in the summer.

Lyrics

Time

Written By: Nate Louis

Come spend some time and belong here
Be close for a while, bring your friends near

You breathe the breath of life into my lungs before I've gone

And You come, found in my loneliness
And You come to cure my brokenness

Face flat to the Earth, find the lost heart
Made for your own in this pure dark

You breathe the breath of life into my lungs before I've gone

And You come, found in my loneliness
And You come to cure my brokenness

Time is all I can't see in front of me
Breathing down my neck and haunting me
Killing me
Lost are the ones who have lost their own hearts due to time

And You come, found in my loneliness
And You come to cure my brokenness

And You come (X3)
