Biography

"UNCROWNED have a slick sound, endorsement deals, and a potential monster hit...(Spin Magazine)"
Chances are, you have heard this band. They have been on the radio all across the nation, they have been on big stages with even bigger bands, and if you haven't seen the live show, you haven't experienced what rock and roll should (and they believe will) be all about. While many other bands have dumbed down their lyrics, created music that only accomplishes a topical connection with fans, and, as a whole, falls short of moving the listener, UNCROWNED continues to push boundaries.
They take chances both musically and lyrically with a result that creates a deep visceral connection with fans that is undeniable. UNCROWNED opens their souls to share the love and hate that they feel, to temp listeners to feel some of their pain and joy, and to re-experience the moments that they live and die for.
Challenging yet accessible, deep but inviting, smart but heart felt... are you ready?

Lyrics

Devil in My Hand

Written By: UNCROWNED

Devil in My Hand

Who do you think that I am

that I could stand up here and spin it this way.

Pretentious about my life

as if it happened only yesterday

Passé I must seem to be,

But we're all hiding underneath

The black and lust, an ugly pink

A truth that you can never know.

Say it with conviction

Say it like you lived it.

But you know you can't , you never will

Because you don't have it in you.

The day people closing their eyes

And resting all their busy minds

I'm slipping into the fire

And imagine I'm really alive.

Harmless I must seem to be

Until I spread my faithless wings

And cover you with dirty things

You make yourself believe you need.

Chorus.

Angels on my left,

Devils on my right.

Crosses on the roadside.

Angel on my left

Devil in my hand

You're out of my life.

Say it with conviction

Say it like you mean it.

Give in to the feeling

Live like you were dying.

But you never can, but if you ever did

don't you ever regret it.

Never regret it.

Remember Your Ghost

Written By: UNCROWNED Music


Is it all that you needed from this, I hope it meant anything, anything

We had no chance, crushed by the bare feet of circumstance
We were in

Life stumbles by like the face of a random passerby
I’ll wave him goodbye

Cities burn in angels arms, they must learn the lessons from…tonight

Is it all that you needed from this I hope, it meant anything, anything
At all …to remember your ghost I know…it means everything, everything.

Get what you wanted?
We had no chance, slip on your black shoes for the last dance, we’ll be in
Life flickers by, like the light in a captured firefly, I’ll wave him goodbye

Cities burn in angels arms, they must learn the lessons from tonight.

Is it all that you needed from this I hope, it meant anything, anything
At all …to remember your ghost I know…it means everything, everything.

Get what you wanted, get what you want?

We’re born we begin to die throwing these moments into the fire
Reborn when we say goodbye, knowing that life ends into the fire.

Is it all that you needed from this I hope, it meant anything, anything
At all …to remember your ghost I know…it means everything, everything.

Did you get what you wanted?

Burning beds

Written By: UNCROWNED Music

Fell in your maddening world I’ll never wake up from this dream
Trying to discern between clarity and memory.

It’s possible that I’ve created this in spite of me
All my adornments seem to wear their separate faces

I can’t face another day waiting for the blame
But I don’t want to burn the bed when it’s over
I put my trust in fate, could be my worst mistake.
But I don’t want to learn the truth in the covers.

In the silence in the distance between you and me
Building resistance to the obvious things that I see

And then the violins are whispering inside of me
Here comes the violence, he’s wearing all my faces…

Chorus.

Hate has become our one true invention
Avenge these thoughts with a single intention
All that we were is lost forever

All you ever wanted was to, finally escape from the thing you created
All you ever wanted was to finally burn down the last thing we had left.

Waking in White Lights

Written By: UNCROWNED Music

Earth swallows the pavement grins for a thousand years, there’s nothing you can take that you will need when you are leaving here

Chariot broke down on the way to the nearest star, there’s nothing left to say
I’ll always be watching over where you are.

Now everything will bleed

Nothing can change my fate, no one can break my fall
Waking in white lights and
Running away from the shadows

I will come to you all bathed in electric light, and if you’re unafraid
Escape with me, fall into the widening gyre

Rap upon my stone and listen for reply, there’s nothing left to say
The air we breathe is full of ghost tonight

Now everything will bleed

Chorus

Now that I’ve fallen from grace and I’ll never win it layers of hurt peel away like a burn
Passive aggressive, obsessive compulsive, the fever the fallers, reliever resolver.

Passive, I’ve fallen from grace, aggressive, the years like a burn.

Chorus
