New Songs!

To the right you will notice we have some new tunes streaming. The first two will appear on a split 7" with our good friends They Come In Waves from Saginaw. We have heard snippets from their song, it is epic! Also, Mark and Alex have cooked up something really special for the layout. Suffice it to say I think it will be worth spending a little bit of money to get your hands on a physical copy. The record should be dropping early next year. More updates to come. You will also notice a demo version of "In Hiding", a song we've been playing live since earlier this year. That song will get re-recorded sometime next year for a 3 song 7" we are doing on our own. We will be holed up in Steve and Lauren's basement this winter writing the other 2 songs for that. SO EXCITED! More updates on that as well as there is news to report. Below are the lyrics for the songs. Aaron really outdid himself on "Empty Handed" and "Brass Tacks" if you ask me. And anyone who has seen us play "In Hiding" knows that song is really close to my heart. Get emo with me on that junk. Anyway, we hope you enjoy. We'd love to see some people get stoked with us on these songs next month at either of our shows with RWTH or the one with Outbreak.
Until then.....Scobie

upon pulpits and pedestals we crown the ethereal.
ages spent studying ghosts from worlds unknowable.
struggling with ambitions to be god, to be like god.
minds trembling, we pray to tame
inclinations inconsistent with civility.
all too aware of our impermanence,
we scour Earth's ends for presence elsewhere
to prove us everlasting.
empty handed I embrace the undeniable:
the presence of death, the breath of life, immutable truths.
an agent for the present,
the fire of vitality
my torch to bear

we stare at bloodstained spears hanging on the walls
and the captions explaining their significance.
life transformed from steady hands in treacherous times
to waxing philosophical on the progress of mankind.
education aids evolution but also illuminates
the vacancy of ideals ideals unachieved.
with no clear predator hunting us without
we prey on deficiencies within.
instincts wither while we mourn
the world that cannot be (why can't it be?)
no we cannot understand the meaning of life!
and the assertions made (wishing)
to encapsulate it hollow (quickly)
under examination. (yet we)
yearn for a depth of understanding
that will give respite
to our weary presence.
the value of relics rendered disputable
we seek to inhabit peace.
with a vow of silence on what is and what is not... (our purpose!)
i claim a vital simplicity:
to seek joy while breathing (to seek joy while breathing)
i claim this vital simplicity.

like the tips of icebergs and the tops of the trees,
i know there's life, i do believe.
there is life, deep inside of you,
that i can't harness it is!
(i know there's life, i do believe)
reasons are only grains,
only grains of sand we can't grasp with our hands,
tho i long to understand,
help me to help you shed this muted shell
live the life you long to live,
embrace the love i've avowed to give.
swing life away, scream life away,
signs that you're alive, signs that you're alive.
cracks of smiles and the light in your eyes
frozen moments...moments in time
know that i struggle with doubt,
know that i'm searching for the best way.
i am resolving to rescue you,
know that i'm waiting...i'll wait...
until that spark ignites...
and at last your flame burns bright!
i'll hold, i'll stay,
i'll lead, i'll fucking pray
for the day my restraints tell you
what i want them to say, what i want them to say.
my dearest little one, where have you been,
this search seems endless, time and again,
in laughs, in smiles, just a glimpse and then its gone,
in spite of everything, my search bears on,
and this is my resolve: to rescue you safe and sound.
i'll be here waiting, waiting to meet the real you!
as my heart beats, as my lungs breathe,
i am resolving, i am resolved.
this tangled web woven just longing to be cut free.
(i know there's life, i do believe)
know that i'm struggling my little one
know that i'm searching my lonely one
i am resolving to rescue you
know i am waiting....waiting!
