Tullis

BandRockJam

A heavy rock trio based out of Eugene with influences of tribal rhythms and progressive sounds mixed with melodic breakdowns. We try and create music that tells a story and takes the listener on an emotional journey.

Biography

All three of us have been friends since sixth grade, back in 1996. We were all very interested in music our whole lives but didn't pick up the guitars and drums until our Jr. year in high school. Finally in 2007 we started really writing our own music and became interested in possibly setting up some live performances. by the end of 2007 we had our first show and have played three more since then. WE are hoping to create more and more and play live as much as possible. Our main influences are Tool, Floater and Primus among many others. I think what sets us apart from other bands is our desire to play music for the sake of music and not to conform to the mainstream sounds in the industry today. We hope our music provokes thought and inspiration to those who listen.

Lyrics

Daylight

Written By: Tullis

Daylight
Hold on, daylights breaking through, mind the shadows until you
Breath in with your head held high
Are you going to speak, do you have something to say or are u just gonna sigh

All a long you know my arms were open, now it seems our hands are tied
All these words that are left unspoken, are killing us from inside

Hold on daylights breaking through, dont let the shadows hide you

All these fears that swell up inside you, dont let them take you away, you stand and wait for someone to guide you, dont let them take u away

Chorus

Its hard to break your fall when u push my arms away
I cant feel at all, when u take everything from me
When you take it from me, you take it from me

Verse 2

Let go of your foolish pride and strip this burden from your mind
These wounds you have reopened will heal in time, dont cover the scars theyd leave behind

All a long you know my arms were open, now it seems our hands are tied
All these words that are left unspoken, are killing us from inside

Hold on daylights breaking through, dont let the shadows hide you

All these fears that swell up inside you, dont let them take you away, you stand and wait for someone to guide you, dont let them take u away

Chorus

Its hard to break your fall when u push my arms away
I cant feel at all, when u take everything from me
When you take it from me, you take it from me

Close your eyes have no fear everythings all right, im right here

FUBAR

Written By: Tullis

F.U.B.A.R.
My sight, decayed, until I found a way to see through dimmed eyes
This hate, it faded away, when we figured out to open our minds
And we ran and we fought through bloodied grounds
And we cleared a path of hope through deafening sounds
We took up our hands and blindly ran into the night
We closed our eyes so we wouldnt spoil the surprise

Chorus

We were failing but we never hit the ground
Our minds were racing I never thought theyd slow down
I can see by your face youve never felt this before
These times of pain, they pave the way
And mold us into what we are

Verse 2

Our words, were cast aside
And our cries for help, they fell on deaf ears
Our strength, decayed
And the crimes done in our names they heightened our fears
And we ran and we fought through bloodied grounds
And we cleared a path of hope through deafening sounds
We had a white knuckle grip as we held on for dear life
We searched for help but there was no one in sight!

Chorus

We were failing but we never hit the ground
Our minds were racing I never thought theyd slow down
I can see by your face youve never felt this before
These times of pain, they pave the way
And mold us into what we are
