Honor in Treason From the first to last note, this is a rebirth of the 90's for today. A Rock/Grunge journey that will leave you desiring more tracks and hitting replay. The list of influences I hear include, incubus, AIC, Tool, Zeppelin, Nirvana. And many more. What makes this so special is the professionalism. All 4 members are clearly experts at their craft. There is talent, but more so practice.The line between professional and indie blurs here. Hit play. Favorite track: Blank Silhouette.

Alive tonight by the candle light I’m on fire Alive tonight in the warm delight Of desire Who were we to wear the color white? Who was I to close my eyes tonight Hmmmmm Alive today I can see the face Of a liar Alive today in the basement of An admirer Who were we to wear the color red? Bind you up and fire it in To your head Hmmmmm

Anticipating what's to come Coiled up in anger My body becomes numb Afraid of something I might find I need a place to hide I need a place to comfortably die Everybody wants to stay alive But nobody survives the wear of time bury my body alone Nothing engraved on the stone Earth melt the flesh from the bone No one will care that I’m gone There’s no way that I can be saved Afraid of nothing, I step into my grave Clear conscience and a piece of mind I found my place to hide Now walk away and leave me to die Everybody wants to stay alive But nobody admits when that’s a lie Earth tear the flesh from the bone Earth peel the flesh from the bone No one will care that I’m gone

Spreading myself thin Wanna give it up again Extra time put on a shelf For when it ends Knew better than to take this path Down this one familiar road But consequences push me To no return, I can’t return Never could I find the pleasure in the midst of all the pain Someone call my name And dare me to exist Bleed the pressure from my head And from my wrists Outside there’s a blinding light and a false sense of concern But inside I’m still dying And I can’t return, I won’t return Never could I find the pleasure in the midst of all the pain Call me insane I won’t return

Woke in the dark, I can't find my way out of this room, seems there's no light switch or doors, am I really entombed? scream through the dark, can somebody please show me the way? nobody answers, it seems I am destined to stay So I stay, cause there's karma to pay, and I'm begging today, don't leave me this way.... I cry to the sky It seems like I have been forgotten and left here to die But I cannot deny The beauty of death as my life slowly passes me by Reaching for something that dissipates into thin air Anger sets in and there's really no end to my stare Smiling through pain, a distraction from what I must do Placing the clouds before living and seeing it through And there’s more than what I do it for So please open the door because I need it more I cry to the sky It seems like I have been forgotten and left here to die But I cannot deny the beauty of death as my life slowly passes me by

Tear it all apart Glue it back together Turn it into art Mind the gloomy weather I lie awake... Staring blindly into the dark again Ill die alone- Somethings got to give So high, I shake... staring madly into the light again something's got to give, got to give again Mouth is full of dirt Eyes are laced in madness Tell me where it hurts Kill me with your sadness

Pushing forward in a jagged line One more number, something else to fill the time Stumble forward into razor wire Search for answers, something else to stay inspired... while I’m awake There’s a door now, I can point you there Into no one, into something in the air Falter backwards into your own kind Out of my view, out of what you left behind But yesterday Go.... go now.... This will set you free Patience is a virtue I should, I should see through Moving with an open mind Fire burning up inside Climbing faster all the time Running cause I cannot hide Running back and forth inside Walking into suicide Feeling like a piece has died Dry and withering inside Watch it crash and burn this time Watch us form a shorter line Watch us slowly fall behind Watch us slowly fade in time Go... go now... This will set you free Now that I’ve found my new illusion I’ll be unbound, flying through the falling skies Into the flames of my confusion Call me insane, flailing round in my demise You’ll have to wait

Haven’t found the answers yet Never felt so desperate Is there more? What’s this for? Is there any way? As I sink to the bottom with a lit cigarette in the cold Just a drip from the bottle just a blank silhouette in the road Open wounds hold nothing in Crying down my back again There’s no one, I’m undone Cannot walk away As I sink to the bottom with a lit cigarette in the cold Just a story of a dead man screaming that’ll never be told Yea, it’s not over yet Oh no, no it’s not over No it’s not over yet Holding onto something dead Only leads to dissonance Don’t hold on to those gone Let me drift away
9.
Crazy mind, I am not alone Trapped inside, hell I call my own Can’t seem to hold my hands still Can’t stop the screaming in my head Can’t seem to let the ghosts out I’m too Alive to feel so dead Yea I wanna hold you to your lies Yea I wanna close your faded eyes Sit up high paranoia throne Shake and hide, my how you have grown Can’t fucking keep the lights out So cold inside I lock the door Can’t keep a fire burning Don’t wanna live this anymore Where’s the way out? Where’s the door to leave? Where’s the way out? Where’s the air to breathe? I have wandered from my home I am lost I am stuck here in my mind I am lost Where’s the way out? Where’s the way?

So good to see you my friend It’s been a long time, come in Let’s talk for hours of our past Make sure that this time isn’t the Last time you see me Take my shadow And We’ll walk wherever you go Just remember to... Take my shadow And we’ll walk hand in hand always I used to listen to your heart Until I ripped it all apart You used to see me as your blood But that was long before the flood Took away, Took away our shadows Where we fell Where we spilled our blood and our tears In our shadows Where we fall Hand in hand always
