Influenced by all varieties of rock music, Zephyr Knocks works hard to encapsulate all of their different influences. Every song is an avenue in which each member can bring their distinct musical tastes to make something familiar yet new and unique.

Biography

Zephyr Knocks is an extremely creative and original Rock band based out of Lowell & Allston, Massachusetts. Their vibe is laid back yet with a long pulling, distorted electric sound . The artists come together with an open canvas for each song and start throwing down paint in a Pollack like way.

Lyrics

Chemical Alphabet

Written By: Mike Lombardi

Dopamine, Seratonin, Norepeniphrine,
I just want to feel normal again.

Klonopin come on, pin me down
Valium, Ritalin, Lipozene
Adderall, Prozac, Dexedrine
Zoloft, Xanax, just relax, just relax

Drugs of all kind
Something for everyone
the prescription is written
Just tell me the symptoms

Is it a chemical solution?
Or just a fix to a fix to a fix to a fix...?

The Wind

Written By: Mike Lombardi

You can't see it but it's there,
blowing right by.
Every Single breath,
Every time you Sleep.
You can't see it but it's there,
blowing right by

the branches start to blow
the wrinkles start to show
the leaves start to fall
the closer you listen,
the more you hear the clock

You can look to the past,
but you can't walk
back down the path
It never ends, just moves on
it never bends,
or puts the brakes on.
You can't see it but it's there,
blowing right by.

the branches start to blow
the wrinkles start to show
the leaves start to fall
the closer you listen,
the more you hear the clock

Driving down a one way road
All the clothes that you've outgrown
the branches sway
in the autumn sky
don't you see the time blowing by.

time to move, time to feel, time to love, time to heal, time to grow, time to show, time to be anything.

this time is the only time
this time is the only time
this time is the only time
this time is the only time...
