Biography

BIO:
A weary breath draws through hopeless lungs as an inner dialogue that is the culmination of all the world’s sorrow, joy, hate, love, rage, adulation and every sentiment in between rushes from a bleak existence. A cacophonic symphony of raw energy, emotions and experiences filter through fire, blood, guts, guitars and pulverizing beats translating into the distant familiarity of an original idea. The rhythmic heartbeat of a group whose time has come resounds through valleys constructed to shepherd the unassuming. Walls crumble as the valleys flood with sound and a world turns to listen...this is When Words Attack!

Formed in 2005, When Words Attack quickly gained respect and recognition for "a heavy sound that fuses alternative and metal" (Jim Beal Jr., San Antonio Express-News.) The group was awarded Best New Act in The Edge Magazine's Best of 2005 Reader's Pick’s Awards. In December of 2009, When Words Attack released their self-titled debut CD on Capone Records. The music is “…Hard rock built not on clichés but on excellent songs and first-class musicianship. " (Jim Beal Jr., San Antonio Express-News) with song content ranging from love, fun and good times to profound emotion and tragedy. When Words Attack has opened for national acts such as In this Moment, The 69 Eyes, Dommin and Fates Warning and is proudly sponsored by El Perrito tequila.

MEDIA:

From the opening tune, titled Confession, which wastes no time in setting a powerful pace - to the heavy rhythm of Reminiscing - to the bold music and message of Liquid Sunshine - to the empowering closing track titled Crawl...When Words Attack are a breath of fresh air...with their dedication and passion to the music they create"--Zach Marcotte, The Edge Magazine

“Striking a daring balance between brainy musicianship and seductive melodies, the new self-titled release from When Words Attack blends bewitching vocals with stormy goth-metal thunder that evokes the echoes of Evanescence , the chill of Cold and the twitchy sci-fi of Tool and VoiVod.”—Metal Dave Glessner

On When Words Attack's debut CD, "I have it in my bedroom."--Randy Bonillas, 99.5 KISS FM

"When Words Attack...bring(s)...groove-heavy riffs and unique musical style to the forefront...the experience and professionalism that this band exudes on stage really makes a difference and their fans notice that."--Matt Mirabella, The Music Life

"When Words Attack (has) a heavy sound that fuses alternative and metal. (Their) work ethic is intact."--Jim Beal Jr., San Antonio Express-News

“The music of When Words Attack is edgy and bittersweet...Cindy’s voice is clean and melodic on the slower numbers, but she can effortlessly summon vocal strength powerful enough to neatly slice through Phil’s pounding...rhythms and weave amongst Steve’s masterful guitar licks.”--Elizabeth Lutri, The Edge Magazine

“…Hard rock built not on clichés but on excellent songs and first-class musicianship. "--Jim Beal Jr., San Antonio Express-News

Lyrics

Confession

Written By: Cindy Osbourne

Can only stay down for so long
Until the sun comes out of the rain
You make me feel just like a child
And oh, it’s not such a bad thing

Oh, how I’d love to die with you
Without you, don’t know what I’d do
Oh, how I’d love to die with you
Without you, don’t know what I’d do
Die with you

You make me feel so alive
No words could ever express
The warmth that you place inside
I can’t deny what I confess

Oh, how I’d love to die with you
Without you, don’t know what I’d do
Oh, how I’d love to die with you
Without you, don’t know what I’d do
Die with you

Oh, how I’d love to die with you
Without you, don’t know what I’d do
My soul mate for eternity
My soul to infinity
Die with you

Bare

Written By: Cindy Osbourne

She can conceive
But cannot carry
She wonders why
She ever married
She had the blessing
Threw it away
Clings to a dream
But now it’s too late

In life
She broke the golden rule
To her
It still isn’t fair
Her broken heart’s still so full
Her bleeding womb is bare

Her years are running so fast
She wonders if
Her time has passed
She wants it back
The way it once was
Now total love
Can never fill her up

In life
She broke the golden rule
To her
It still isn’t fair
Her broken heart’s still so full
Her bleeding womb is bare

She mourns another life
Alone and cold she cries
In disbelief a second time
There’s no relief in sight

In life
She broke the golden rule
To her
It still isn’t fair
Her broken heart’s still so full
Her bleeding womb is bare

Her bleeding womb is bare
Her bleeding womb is bare
Her bleeding womb is bare

Burn One

Written By: Cindy Osbourne

I’ve got the kind
To blow your mind
There’s no need for you to go nowhere
The party is on right here

Light it up
Like a bonfire
Feel the love
Never get higher

Her cherry’s ripe and ready
Hold her nice and steady
Lucky four-leaf clover
Pass her back on over

Escape reality one night
No need to feel so uptight
Escape reality one night
Peace, love and let us unite

Light it up
Light me up
Light it up
Come on and light us up

Light it up
Like a bonfire
Feel the love
Never get higher
Inspiration unveiled
New thoughts waiting to exhale
Philosophy uncurtailed
Just a part of what Jane entails

So, light it up
Light me up
Light it up
Light us up

Untruth

Written By: Cindy Osbourne

I know the truth
That night
The one you tried
To hide
I tried to talk to you
Inside myself I knew

No accident
You lied
Believe it
Believe it
It nagged inside
You lied
A suicide

Your guise of protection
Feels more like rejection
Chemical coincidence
It never made much sense

No accident
You lied
Believe it
Believe it
It nagged inside
You lied
A suicide
Suicide

No accident
You lied
Believe it
Believe it
It nagged inside
You lied
A suicide

Liquid Sunshine

Written By: Cindy Osbourne

How about 40 for a 20?
Give me all your money
Social justice
Just doesn’t exist
I’d start a revolution
The only problem is
No one seems to know
My name

May I say something?
Why does it have to be this way?
You weigh so heavily on me
Life isn’t fair
What can I do?
I’m much like you
I’ll return to you—I swear

How I’d love to run and play
In your liquid sunshine all day
Oh, how I’d love to run and play
If I had as much as you say

Give peace a chance
Give peace to a nation
But we’re a mere insinuation
We’ve waged our wars
Now when is it time for love?
Teach me your ways, Rastafarian

Together we dream
In life we need no material thing
Can you see the irony?
Don’t want to be the enemy
But what good can I bring?
I can pray and sing

How I’d love to run and play
In your liquid sunshine all day
Oh, how I’d love to run and play
If I had as much as you say

Stripped

Written By: Cindy Osbourne

There you go again
And here I come again
Your walls surrounding me
Intriguing mystery

Well, I felt it coming
Oh, it’s nothing new to me
Well, I felt it coming
Oh, it’s nothing

Don’t stand too close to me
If you think it makes it easy
I stand before you nakedly
My faithful destiny

Well, I felt it coming
Oh, it’s nothing new to me
Save your apology
I know you’re leaving
You’re leaving me
Hey, hey, you’re leaving me
Hey, hey, you’re leaving me
Hey, hey, you’re leaving me

My heart hides in my head
And my head left for dead
Oh, so thinly I am spread
I’m out of oxygen

Well, I felt it coming
Oh, it’s nothing new to me
Save your apology
I know you’re leaving
You’re leaving me
Hey, hey, you’re leaving me
Hey, hey, you’re leaving me
Hey, hey, you’re finally free

Grind

Written By: Cindy Osbourne

Are you ready?
Are you ready?
Yeah

Been so long
It’s been so long
So turned on
I’m so turned on
Don’t you stop
Now don’t you stop
Finish me
Don’t leave me robbed

You know what buttons you can push
You know I’ve got the cush
Ring my bell
Please ring my bell
Feel your swell
I feel your swell

Are you ready?
Wanna see your face
Are you ready?
Wanna say your name
Are you ready?
Wanna feel you inside
Are you ready?
Wanna grind

Turn me out
Turn me inside out
Scream and shout
Make me scream and shout
Move my body
Little shakes
Move my body
Big earthquakes

Come again
Please come again
Where’ve you been?
Oh, where’ve you been?
I’ve been waiting my whole life
For someone to satisfy

Are you ready?
Wanna see your face
Are you ready?
Wanna say your name
Are you ready?
Wanna feel you inside
Are you ready?
Wanna grind

Reminiscing

Written By: Cindy Osbourne

Blackened skin
Is what I’m in
Purple eyes
Are no surprise
You never listen to my cries
Jealous accusations fly
For one second
Please don’t lie
Cracked pipes
That can’t be denied

Blocked memories
Are raping me
Blocked memories
Are raping

Control suppressed rage to vent
Unsubstantial evidence
From your mind
You’re never free
Scalp Indian
Out of me
Bodies fall to the floor violently
There’s the door
It’s time for you to leave

Blocked memories
Are raping me
Blocked memories
Are raping

But do you miss me?
I’m reminiscing
But do you miss me?
I’m reminiscing

Fast cars you weren’t meant to drive
Get me out of here alive
Red and blue flashing lights
It’s past time we kissed goodnight
Kiss goodnight
Kiss goodnight
Kiss goodnight
Kiss goodnight

Crawl

Written By: Cindy Osbourne

You were never mine
I was never yours
I finally resign
I’ll see you nevermore

All this time, I’ve grown
You’re still the same
You’ve not learned
I yearn to watch you burn
Fully deserve your curse

And it feels so good
To say no to you
Crawling back to me
Your audacity

Ooh, and it feels so good
To say no to you
Crawling back to me
Your audacity
And I ache
And you take
And you fake so good
So good
So good

In the Bedroom

Written By: Cindy Osbourne

In the bedroom
Her love is conditional
In the bedroom
There is no confessional
In the bedroom
She hides her skeletons
In the bedroom
Widowed sevenfold

Don’t get the gun
I’m not so well
No escaping
Brutality

Don’t get the gun
I’m not so well
Sole guarantee
Life’s temporary

In the bedroom
Fire and blindfolds
In the bedroom
How life becomes crimson
In the bedroom
Lost in a stranglehold
In the bedroom
Warm bodies turn ice-cold

Don’t get the gun
I’m not so well
No escaping
Brutality

Don’t get the gun
I’m not so well
Sole guarantee
Life’s temporary

Don’t get the gun
I’m not so well
No escaping
Brutality

Don’t get the gun
I’m not so well
Sole guarantee
Life’s temporary

In the bedroom
In the bedroom
In the bedroom
In the bedroom
