Till We Have Faces

Till We Have Faces

BandRockEDM

On a scale of 1-10, we are pretty awesome. Our style is a blend of rock, indie, post-hardcore, and electronica. We are the type of band you could rock out to, but still sing along with the melodies and grove to the electronic heartbeats.

Biography

Our neighbors hate us...seriously. When ever you have an entire rock band living in the same 3rd floor apartment, you know fun things are going to happen. But its here at "The Embassy," as we like to call the apt., that we are able to live out our passions: playing X-Box and more importantly, making music.

Although we don't practice here, "The Embassy" is where our musical creativity thrives. If you were to walk in on any given day, you would most likely hear bands like The Receiving End of Sirens, Funeral For A Friend, Thrice, or Emery blaring from the computer speakers. Or, if you're lucky, find five guys in their boxers holding guitars, laptops, and keyboards molding TILL WE HAVE FACES' next masterpiece.

The new trend in band bios is to pitch your music's originality or difference to "the scene," but honestly, we just play what we love. Most of the time it comes out pretty unique, other times, not as much. Our style is a blend of rock, indie, post-hardcore, and electronica. We are the type of band you could rock out to, but still sing along with the melodies and grove to the electronic heatbeats.

This we can guarantee, we're passionate about our music. You can see that in our face and movements, whether in front of a large crowd or in a practice room at a small Baptist church. If you give us a chance to show our music, we'll play anywhere anytime. If not, you're always invited to come chill at "The Embassy."

Lyrics

Eyes Open

Written By: Carlos Pinero/James Peery

Once again we dance this downward fall
The motions carry us away from this call
Our hearts race, our minds can't pace
We lose sight from this first taste, first taste

I could have kept you but I
I had to have you
And when I had you then I
I swear I'd lost you

It's a lost cause staying forever
It's a lost cause knowing the truth
It's a lost cause when it's not easy
It's a lost cause trying to get over you

Drowning my regret with this distortion
Expressing how I feel through the strain of voices
Eyes open underwater we see
Ourselves anchored by ecstasy

I choose not to breathe

I choose not, I choose not
I choose not to breathe

Down, Down, Down
This ship is sinking
Drown, Drown, Drown
This fool is dreaming

Swan Dive

Written By: Jason Charles

When the colors change
(and run away like sand through my hands)
And the beauty fades
(you try to keep hold of what you can)
All that's left is pain
(take it and it beating case)
And throw it off the ledge
(swan dive from seventh story)

Swan dive from the seventh story

What must I do to be saved?
What must I do to be saved?

These dreams I get lost following
But when they turn around I see
That the figures standing next to me
Aren't the faces I've been chasing

I've idolized, compromised, prioritized
(but in the end I'm still left with these)
Unanswered questions to unquestioned answers
These dreams have lost their edge (I'll take them to the ledge)
And throw it all away
(swan dive from the seventh story)

Swan dive from the seventh story

What must I do to be saved?
Swan dive from the seventh story, Swan dive from the seventh story
(this heart won't break)
What must I do to be saved?
Swan dive from the seventh story, Swan dive from the seventh story

These dreams I get lost following
But when they turn around I see
That the figures standing next to me
Aren't the faces I've been chasing

Valentines Party

Written By: James Peery

Bouncing around from emotion to another
Makes me wish I never saw any other
You make me happy, you make me smile
But you tear me apart and leave me so defiled

Sometimes you suggest that there's a slight interest
But then you shoot me out of the sky
You let me crash, you let me die
You let me crash, you let me die

I've been waiting for you to see
I've been waiting, save the last dance for me
I've been waiting for you to see
I've been waiting save the last dance for me

I though for a second thing would change
But that too absurd, too deranged
Say that you don't care how much fun it would be
Say that you don't care more about me

I've been waiting for you, waiting to see
I've been waiting, save the last dance for me
I just wanted you to be my friend
But listening's just too tough in the end

Save the last dance, save the last dance for me
