Biography

Thundercracker is an unsigned act from Oklahoma that combines influences from Heavy Metal, Southern Rock, Grunge, Stoner Rock, and any other forms of loud and righteous music. The name most commonly applied to this style would be "Southern Metal" and definitely fits the bill. The lyrical content varies but is based on real life stories and scenarios that can relate to the listener. The music itself is based on classic rock and roll formulas that deliver loud, melodic, and often intense songs. We're not trying to outwit our listeners, and we often like our lyrics to be understood - which is hard to find in the day and age of Nu-metal and Screamo styles. The songs are meant to be big and solid; some heavy and driven, while others more catchy and subdued. Thundercracker is influenced by generations of rock music, and any album or song collection from this band will not be one constant song into the next - there will be variations. The only main consistencies will be guitars at loud volume!

All of these songs are home demos done under the lowest of circumstance possible, and we're still seeking a label to get behind us and get the real thing out to the masses!

Lyrics

Revelations

Written By: Joe Thomas

I was under an illusion
I thought that we had it all
you pulled the rug from under my feet
and for many moons, did I fall
but now
I see it all so clearly
I can see the error in my ways
I spent so much time
trying to make you smile
That's the biggest mistake that Ive made

It seemed like I owed you a favor
because you never did anything wrong
but when I stumbled in your presence
every little thing was written in stone
and now
I see it all so clearly
I can see the error in my ways
I spent so much of my time
trying to make you smile
That's the biggest mistake that Ive made

It takes two to build a mountain
but only one to lay down the blame
and if you point your finger at another
be sure that it's not all in vain

I see it all so clearly
I can see the error in my ways
I spent so much of my time
trying to make you smile
That's the biggest mistake that Ive made

It's all just a lie, anyway

Testify

Written By: Joe Thomas

Hey all you sinners!
wont you gather round
let me tell ya
whats coming to your town
you need to get down
on your knees and repent
now is the time to
let your soul transcend

hey dont you wanna know about the coming tide
the day of judgment is upon us at this time

Ive been a fool, Ive been around
but I aint gonna miss out my chance right now
I was a sinner, seldom a saint
but in the nick of time I washed it all away
Lay it on the line.....Testify....Lay it on the line

Praying ain't enough
you gotta live the way you read
Love your every brother
dont you dare strike him dead
pleasures of the flesh
are the pathway to hell
if youre gonna play with fire
then its in fire you shall dwell

hey dont you wanna know about the coming tide
the day of judgment is upon us at this time

Ive been a fool, Ive been around
but I aint missing salvation right now
I was a sinner, and never a saint
in the nick of time I washed it all away
Lay it on the line.....Testify....Lay it on the line

*dearly beloved, we are gathered here today,
to tell the sinners here before us...that its...'its okay'

we all need a little help sometime
stand tall and lay it all on the line

It's All The Same

Written By: Joe Thomas


someone told me something
that i never
should have known
someone said its haunted
theres a ghost here
some lost soul
maybe its a spirit
lost so very long ago
maybe its the pieces
of the broken heart you chose

lord have mercy
sakes alive
goodness gracious
its all the same old jive

someone told me something
that i never should have known
someone said i'm hopeless
i'm a lost cause
bless my soul
days pass and I falter
further from what
was once known
last time i remember
i was left here on my own

lord have mercy
sakes alive
goodness gracious
thats all the same old jive
