Biography

Formed in 2008 when MC Peter Powers, and Bassist James Corbin started bouncing around the ideal of starting a band. After months of talking about getting a band going the pair approached keyboardist Lannan Nusbaum, and at the time Drummer Juan Irachett about getting a band together. After playing a few shows it became apparent that a guitar was very much needed weapon in the line up. The group asked current Drummer Pete Montez to join, after a week or so of prayer. He was down. Juan moved over to the guitar.

The meaning of the name Vaguely Specific is ode to the parables of Christ. He spoke them in way that was veiled but very pointed at the same time. Hip hop is similar. VS’ Lyrical content at times can be raw and gritty , while other times it can be a complex allegory to show a simple truth

Lyrics

Even in the Fire

Written By: Vaguely Specific

See I've seen more static than freshly washed jeans
that turned into more beef than slaughter houses have seen
People stood and watched, silent like Mr. Bean
As soon as I left they moved mouths like Listerine
They used me up like free gasoilne
Then forgot about me quicker than dreams
See I've slept on a bed of nails, and walked on broken glass
Been stabed in the back and had salt thrown on my gash
Sometimes its hard to let go of your past
When it keeps coming back like fiends for crack
See I've been hung on the edge
About to fall off, hit bottom and blow up like a cocktail malotov
But through all battles fought and wars that were waged
The LORD carried me through untouched by the flames
Like Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego
The fire burnt my ropes but never burnt my clothes

And even in the fire
Even in the fire
Even in the fire

You can count on the Messiah
You can count on the Messiah

And even in the fire, you can count on the Messiah

And even in the fire
Even in the fire
Even in the fire

4give me Father

I search my self deep
The reasons incomplete
I sneak past deceit and see myslef for just Pete
The smoke and the drink
The sinner underneth
My imagined righteousness I've some how concived
How can I teach and preach with a joint in my hand?
Should be sober in all things
For clear concience plan
And true destiny what God's planned for my life
And my actions seem to show that I've disregarded Christ
and staying celibate dont matter (if your) fantizing in the shower
Truthful a coward, cause the truth can devour me
Smoke weed hourly, to fight my convictions
While mentally imprisioned by my beloved addiction
While HE died for my sickness and sins I've commited
I nail HIM back to the Cross like HE hasn't risen
Like the Spirit with in HIM, now doesnt live with in me
I tear HIM from my self. Now I see why GOD grieves

Forgive me Father, I've fallen away
The last thing I want to do
Is cause YOU pain
I know that you came and were slain
For a way to have unity with me
While I push you away.

Forgive me Father, I've fallen away
The last thing I want to do
Is cause YOU pain
I know that you came and were slain
For a way to have unity with me
While I push you away.

I claim that I love YOU
But my fruit doesn't bear it
The truth is apparent
I'm fully embarrassed
YOU knew my heart
Before I was a thought to my parents
Now I look in the mirror ashamed of my apperance
This is how Adam must have felt when
He realised he was naked
Ashamed of his own flesh
'Cause sin had tainted him
But God's grace covered him with animal skin
Like the blood of Christ's covers with Grace all of our sins
Now I grew up in church
But missed it all along
'Cause revelation can't be taught by a man or a song
Now I grew up in church
But missed it all along
'Cause revelation can't be taught by a man or a song

Forgive me Father, I've fallen away
The last thing I want to do
Is cause YOU pain
I know that you came and were slain
For a way to have unity with me
While I push you away.

Forgive me Father, I've fallen away
The last thing I want to do
Is cause YOU pain
I know that you came and were slain
For a way to have unity with me
While I push you away.

Away.. away.. away (while I push you away)

And the benfit on the other side of the cross is far more
Than the flesh that is lost.

Forgive me Father, I've fallen away
The last thing I want to do
Is cause YOU pain
I know that you came and were slain
For a way to have unity with me
While I push you away.
