Vonrenzo's new album Indica Dove Sei is one of love, compassion... forgiveness. Vonrenzo has known the dreamlike nature of existence and the dark side of life; and because of this, the band has an understanding and depth unseen in music today.

Biography

Why Vonrenzo?

There is a point where one begins to run toward the light instead of escaping from the darkness... a point where we save ourselves, realizing that we are in fact one. To love one's self is the only true love that exists. To love self is to love the other; and it is together that we will find that, in truth, we have always been one...

It is not important what we have done, where we have been, why, or how we got here. It is only important that we are here. We are not unique. We are not common, but we are now found. We believe that all great spiritual awakenings stem from great pain and suffering. In hindsight, you will see how painless all of it really was... to now be in such a place of serenity. You will be healed when you realize you were always perfect.

It was with these realizations, Vonrenzo headed back into the studio with a newfound passion for music and a new outlook on life. Songwriter Adam Luaces, alongside new members Nathan Brimmer and Pete Pidgeon, paired up again with producer/engineer Kyle 'Slick' Johnson, and the result was a journey of love and redemption, culminating in Indica Dove Sei (Indicate Where You Are). The new album was a huge departure from Vonrenzo's first album of self-destruction.

To say that Vonrenzo rose from the ashes is to understate the band's growth. Vonrenzo's first album, Intention and the Adequacy of Delusion, was dark, gritty... depressive. Indica is one of love, compassion... forgiveness. Vonrenzo has known the dreamlike nature of existence and the dark side of life; and because of this, the band has an understanding and depth unseen in music today.

All is love letting go,
Vonrenzo

Lyrics

Once Significant

Written By: Adam Luaces, Vonrenzo

I don't know why I started
I guess I was just looking
Speaking in lies, in lust, and in curses
Just to end this thought inside
And within young skin...
Why did I lift you up so high?
How did I hold you up so high?
In this desire for love and what you want
You know too little about what you need...
Although, you've tried to be different
You're turned around when you are lost
You've carved apart, all while yearning
Screaming out, well it only hurts now
When you are gone, oh baby, you breathe out
And I can never, no I won't ever, breathe in, then...
Why did I lift you up so high?
How did I hold you up so high?
In this desire for love and what you want
You know too little about what you need...
I don't wanna to fall from here...
Where I can never look down...
Cause I'll be looking all around...
Amen.

All Right Now

Written By: Adam Luaces, Vonrenzo

"The last one's the lucky one," she said
I want you to think of me as you undress
It's all right now, and baby you are so safe
Even if you say how, but do you know
Do you know, just to be standing here...
I've waited all my ...
We're only dreaming,
You see the meaning is you're there
I found that the answer is everywhere
It's all right now, and baby you are so safe
Even if you say how, but do you know
Do you know, just to be standing here
I've waited all my life.

Apologies, Excuses, & the Redemption of Promise

Written By: Adam Luaces, Vonrenzo

Thank you so much
It means more than you'll ever know
You make me proud of whom I've become
Humble as tears, willing to fall...
Redemption...
Won't you tell me what I can do for you?
I used to believe in attention
To hide my wounds and come cover my sin
Now I've found all is love and baby that's within
And being without is just your emptiness, for...
Redemption...
Won't you tell me what I can do for you?
Nobody knows what they want
Only what they do not have,
Oh and I, well I've tried to provide,
Some kinda explanation, come on baby
And our apologies are excusing nothing at all...
Redemption...
Won't you tell me what I can do for you?
Love heals what love can do.

It Has Been Awhile

Written By: Adam Luaces, Vonrenzo

It read, "How are you, it has been awhile"
Believe me I know, you're every thought
And this makes Four Hundred and Ninety-Seven Days
Where I must say
That I feel, I feel the same, same way, this way...
All I want is you
And all I'll ever want is you, said
Heart still beating for you, it's always you...
I watch you, when I close my eyes
Believe me I know, you're all I see
And at night I dream that you
Still love me too, even if it's untrue,
But I won't assume, no
All I want is you
And all I'll ever want is you
Heart still beating here now...
And I'm still being here now...
You're all I want...

Please Stop Saying I Love You

Written By: Adam Luaces, Vonrenzo

I stared out the window, as you, folded your clothes
Telling me there's something I should know
You picked up your shoes and you placed them all in a bag
Whispering please, don't be sad...
Can you show me the way that leads me back
To where you said that our love was really meant to be
I have finally found out this is all, just a passing phase
Oh why don't you see?
I have finally found out this is all now and our memories...
It's been what, two years without you, since I last saw your face
And I've been here singing your name
I woke up this morning to the rest of my life just thinking
Mama, tell me when are you coming home?
Can you show me the way that leads me back
To where you said that our love was really meant to be
I have finally found out this is all, just a passing phase,
Oh why don't you see?
I have finally found out this is all, now and our memories...
And if ever I should lose my way, I'll be here and now, only to say
I have finally found out this is all, just a passing phase,
Oh why don't you see?
I have finally found out this is all, now and our memories...
I have finally found, I am finally found...
I have finally found, we are here, and that is all...
If this was my dream, you would still be here...

Goodnight, New Jersey

Written By: Adam Luaces, Vonrenzo

Goodnight, New Jersey
I guess with you I don't belong
In truth I have missed you missing me
But I've grown tired from holding on...
Were you even there, No I won't be fair
And now you're too numb to care...
Farewell, New Jersey
Though I still want to become your need
I loved you watching me watching you
With no words of distance to speak
And as you fade away, darling I must say
It's a shame you don't feel the same
Because once, once I had this dream
There was no one else to seek
No where else to reach,
Just you and just me
And now that was so long ago,
And I'm someone still far away
With nothing left to say,
Except did you ever love me?
Perhaps my dream
This dream was yours
Goodbye, New Jersey...
By the time you hear this
I'll be gone...

Candle In Hand

Written By: Adam Luaces, Vonrenzo

You taught me of an emptiness that's still within
And as a moon prayed silent pressed upon your skin
And as I locked the door that I had closed in my mind
And it was in your smile, I turned awry into the other side...
Just don't tell me when it's too late
I do not wish to awake without the part you take...
No, you were not another I could just push away
And I lay still upon you, seeking nothing to say
And as your lips close in quiet knowing all that I have guessed
That if I stopped falling, I would have nothing to catch...
Just don't tell me when it's too late
I do not wish to awake without the part you take...
I want to be of you again
I want to be of you
I want to be of you again
Wondering in your wonder...

Spreading Ashes Upon 29th Street

Written By: Adam Luaces, Vonrenzo

Ashes please, tell me what are you, waiting for
You've been held down here for so long
Ashes please, tell me what are we, searching for
I'm always here, I'm never destination
For where I think I am...
I don't want to feel this way, I don't want to fear this pain
I don't want to hear you say... 'We're Ashes'
Ashes please, tell me what are you, longing for
There is nothing worse than holding on
Ashes please, won't you tell me what are we all destined for
If I am using you for validation
For who I think I am...
I don't want to feel this way, I don't want to fear your face
And I don't want to hear you say...
I still kiss your mouth, oh, now tell me is this heaven
Or I am dreaming to myself when
The last time that I saw your face
Talking about tough love, and I'm deceiving
Fuck that, I want to die beside of you
Going no where, feeling closer
God, I still feel the same, I found love in your face
I just wanted you to stay,
So I'm never saying forever, ever again
So whenever, I'll be yours however, I already am.
But why?
