about

Here it is, finally our debut EP. Although inspiration for these tracks comes in many dfferent forms, each and everyone is written from about as personal place as you can get but since art is interpretive I won't delude your outlook with my dispositions. <---intelectual or kinda douchey? haha
We want to take the time to say thank you to Taylor Voeltz & Dana Willax over at Undercity Studios, you guys are amazing & thank you for giving us this opportunity to fullfill a dream. Every ninja dance, every ninja die!!! Thank you to all of our loved ones for your unwavering encouragement and love. And most importantly THANK YOU....yes you...the one reading this. Thank you, without your support and love this wouldn't mean a fraction of what it does.
Keep it shwayze & rawk like fraggles!!

-Your Friendly Neighborhood Chaz

Track Name: Hope Has Not Abandoned This Land
When the burdens that we share
Begin to drag us down
They will force our hand into making decisions for which we're unprepared
These phantoms that I hold
So very close to me
I know they spell my doom
Still can I let them go

Am I falling down
Again to bended knee
I won't be the hope that you abandon
To save yourself
Self sacrifice is nothing more than self indulgance

With all the games we've payed
In search of constant change
Will the bridges we have burned cut off our only source of escape
Although I'm well aware
These scars will bury me
And my freedom's in release
Still I can't let them go

Am I falling down
Again to bended knee
I won't be the hope that you abandon
To save yourself
Self sacrifice is nothing more than self indulgance

Hold on tight
Though the waves are crashing in
I swear we'll make it this time
For hope has not abandoned this land

Is it attitdue or aptitude that makes us prone to servitude
With everything that we've been through
Just what the hell are we trying to prove
I am not the only one
No I can't be the only one
Who sees the lives we tend to live and thinks there must be more to it
Wanting more than just to get by
Learn to laugh as well as cry
Learn to hold my head up high and live outside of compromise
I am not the only one
I can't be the only one
Please say I'm not the only one
Please god I can't be the only one

Am I falling down
Again to bended knee
I won't be the hope that you abandon
To save yourself
Self sacrifice is nothing more than self indulgance

Hold on tight
Though the waves are crashing in
I swear we'll make it this time
For hope has not abandoned this land
Hope has not abandoned us
Track Name: Mirror Tells Lies
Seperate truth from bone
distinguishing flesh from lies
Peel apart shroud by shroud
The layers that cover your eyes

And I won't beleive
This is who I am
No I won't be forced down to be who you claim I am

Decisions
Run through my brain
They're haunting me
Haunting my every step

And I won't beleive
This is who I am
No I won't be forced down to be who you claim I am

NO
and I won't beleive
YOU
I just don't beleive
NO
and I won't beleive
These are the lies you tell me every single day

Tear down the walls
That try and tell us who we are
Strip away the pain the shame the games the blame
Today

And I won't beleive
This is who I am
No I won't be forced down to be who you claim I am

NO
and I won't beleive
YOU
I just don't beleive
NO
and I won't beleive
These are the lies you tell me every single day

The mirror tells lies
The mirror tells lies

Disengage yourself from everything you thought you knew about the truth
there's more than one way you can live this life
I am not ashamed
I am not affraid
I will grow
I will grow
I will grow

And I won't beleive
This is who I am
No I won't be forced down to be who you claim I am

NO
and I won't beleive
YOU
I just don't beleive
NO
and I won't beleive
These are the lies you tell me every single day
Track Name: War. War Never Changes
Pressing onward despite this sence of dread
Warnings we'll loose ourselves echoing inside our heads
Smell of ashes
Footprints on shallow graves
the faces that I've changesd will haunt my dreams until that final day

Yet I will not be affraid of today
For in this way that heroes are made

Justifying or lying to ourselves
No victory's to be had if we forfiet our souls

When the smoke begins to fade away
Will we stand on what we did that day

Staring down the barrel of
Decisions that will define humanity
These hands will never come clean
No matter how I try
How I try

Let's turn it around
Let's start again
For all this time we've been going nowhere
No burn it all down
Down to the ground
Till all the screams are finally silenced

But how can we move on with our lives
If we can't fcace our own reflections
And how do we learn from past mistakes
If we repeat this endless cycle

We're going nowhere
Nowhere fast

Eyes are blurry from all of these preconceived misperceptions
Hands are shaking, so bloodied bruised and broken from
Tearing at the walls
Pounding at the walls we've built ourselves
Brick by salt stained brick

We're going nowhere
Nowhere fast
Track Name: How to Demonize Oneself
Over and over I spin it around in my head
Endlessly I kick the dog although I am sure it is dead
Back myself againgst the wall to see what I could find (inside me)
Eventually I'll find a way to turn back the hands of time

Am I demonizing
Am I pacifying

Splitting the differance between half truths and lies (she said to me)
How many tears can be shed before you run dry
Digging this grave the dirst stings and coats my eyes
Endlessly searching for a treasure to claim as mine

But if this is the way that it's supposed to be
Then why don't these voices all agree
Am I demonizing
Am I pacifying
Sure seems that way
Let's just call it what it is

Beaten but not beaten down
Broken but not broken down
Smiling even though I'm grieving
I can't see yet I'm still leaving
And although these scars keep bleeding
And I can't sleep
I'm still dreaming

I still dream of those eyes
Blinded by all the lights
Is this me that I'll find
I hope so
Track Name: Just This Once Everyone Lives
We've been here for so long
We've forgot we had nothing at all
Morals twist and shape
In accordance
With tiny trembling hands

Am I searching for a god in their eyes
Or a meaning that makes each breath more than just a passing of time

Tunnel vision
Air is thin here
Overhead the sirens are wailing
Not a child born would falter
In tearing this whole world apart

Am I searching for a god in their eyes
Or a meaning that makes each breath more than just a passing of time

Time is always on my side
Still is this the only
A way to die

Learn to dance from the supposed dead and breathless
Learn to dance from the supposed dead and breathless
Learn to dance from the supposed dead and breathless

This opression is all that we have
This opression is all that we have
