Biography

This Massachusetts based band established themselves throughout New England, under the name 4:20 with a strong fan base as well as commercial and college airplay, showcases, gig slots and festival appearances with major label acts such as Disturbed, Staind, Sevendust, Shinedown, RA, Must, Lacuna Coil and Black Label Society. In late 2003, the longtime quartet added another member to enhance the sound (London, England native, Carl Cordean) write new material and changed their name to TRAGIC YOUTH.

After a couple of initial full-length releases, the band caught the attention of Grammy Award winning producer and engineer, Warren Riker (Santana, Lauryn Hill, Korn, Sublime, Everlast, etc.) who upon hearing their release Compulsive Behavior, wanted to work with the band. Through the course of a year, Warren worked with TRAGIC YOUTH producing several tracks, one of which "Isn't It Hard" was made into a concept video produced by IDrops.

Currently, TRAGIC YOUTH is working on their next recording slated for a late 2004 release. In the meantime, they continue to perform in New England and New York and write new material.

Lyrics

Isn't It Hard

Written By: Noah Staff

Isn' it hard, The day goes by
Isn' it hard, Another phase of mine
Isn' it hard, When nothing changes
Isn' it hard, To go through these changes

Isn' it hard, To walk away sometimes
Isn' it hard, To contemplate their lies
Isn' it hard, For nothing realised
Life is hard sometimes.

All i have are memories
You can't take that away from me
When all I have is nothing here
It still hurts inside.

You take it away, from me and laughed in my face.

(CHORUS)

All the way you watched me fall down, it still hurts inside.

Please don't let me down and i'll never let you go.

(CHORUS)

This Is Life

Written By: Noah Staff

this is life

so this is life
are you satisfied
you sacrifice your soul 4 pride
you live on the edge
waiting to die
sometimes its like your not alive

its kinda like
your not there
blank expressions
empty stares
all is gone
that was once there
i cant believe this, its not fair

hey i think i
would like to stop the world and rest a little
hey i feel like
i'd like to start this over, stop the world

i've been dancing with the devil
the dark music and the melodies are simple
how could i ever forget the way she moves in tempo
