about

"Principles..." is a cinematic, dark look at modern day life and all its personal trials and tribulations. The band, and certainly this album, are inspired in large part by modern film noir and philosophic/dramatic literature. This full-length debut is a work in progress and thus not yet complete. Included are the finished tracks, but more will be added as soon as they are finalized and ready. The official release date is TBA.

Track Name: Exiles
A homeland in an alien world
Divided loyalties, divided sympathies

Of two minds, of none
To always walk on another's soil
So he walks

He was a sane man
With nowhere to go
So it falls on him
To never slow

A breeze stirs on the street
Pushing debris
Its void feels so familiar
To none more than me

We are exiles on the city streets
We are exiles on the city streets
We are exiles on the city streets
We are exiles on the city streets
We are exiles on the city streets
We are exiles on the city streets
We are exiles on the city streets
We are exiles on the city streets
Track Name: Like Scenes From a Film
My quiet steps would take me down an empty street
I'm just another stranger
And any destination was irrelevant
I didn't need a thing
Reflecting images so close to the edge
In all directions
But I see no truth in passing interludes
I didn't need it, need it, need it, need a thing

I didn't mean to say that I would feel the same
Like all the others
I want to stay alive before they realize
I didn't need a thing
It doesn't matter where you burned down your cares
Or where you're heading
I've kept no company with any memory
I didn't need it, need it, need it, need a thing

All I ever wanted
Was to leave it all behind
And our very misfortunes
Have turned us against each other in kind

And this is happening to me
And it wears out the mirage
Like a dream in the wind
I'm a dead little pig
I realize
I'm the warhead alive
If you don't take it from me
I can never be free again
Track Name: Censure
This pale light softly shows that nothing
Disturbs the stillness
I have no intent on closing my eyes to rest
When sleep is blindness

What's done is done, and so the hours pass
Without forgiveness
Say what they will, it doesn't mean a thing at all
My adultery is endless

Falling

And I don't carry fear
My mistakes are mine and mine alone
My many flaws are real
Though I'm proud, and I know it has shown
The road's paved with a liar's script
And broken vows we continually flaunt
Now I don't feel a thing
Nor care for what you want

And I laugh bitterly
How it seems that some lovers ask too much
As I watch you wrap your hopes
Over something you couldn't once touch
All that's left is to turn away
From a censure I couldn't ever heed
Now I don't feel a thing
Nor care for what you need

And if I did stay
This would only end badly
I'd rather live my own life
And be finally free
Track Name: And Now You Know
A strange voice echoes down the hall
A weary rasp that nakedly begins the trial
But some words are better left unsaid
(I will not hide)
In deliberate twists of communion and denial

Too much in the way
(I want to see it through)
To ever cleanse the past
(But my resolve is fading)
There's too much in the way
(I want to see it through)
To ever start again
(But my resolve is fading)

There's one thing that hasn't failed me yet
And it's become the purest prison known
As days pass like minutes, and minutes like years
(I will not hide)
I've come to recognize that strange voice as my own

Too much in the way
(I want to see it through)
To ever cleanse the past
(But my resolve is fading)
There's too much in the way
(I want to see it through)
To ever start again
(But my resolve is fading)

I know it seems that the world doesn't make any sense
That it still feels diseased
Deteriorating all circumstances
Warped by the fractured lights
But nonetheless, my bitterness calls forth
The ghosts of all I have done
I never said I'd never become
That one sinner reading his own rites

You say it's grown quiet
But for me, it can't
Track Name: Partisan
Come with me
We'll march in line
Into a war of our own
I want to feel that there's something more than...
I want to know that you're not asleep
I want convictions you can see it for a warm new day

Can you believe it
Can you believe it
Would you even know
Would you even....

Left with fear
It grows inside
And makes you less than whole
An empty voice is all I hear now
Spilling words from another's mouth
Without knowing they were never yours
There is no doubt

Can you believe it
Can you believe it
Would you even know
Would you even....

Come with me
We'll march in line
Into a war of our own
I want to feel that there's something more than...
I want to know that you're not asleep
I want convictions you can see it for a warm new day

Can you believe it
Can you believe it
Would you even know
Would you even....
Track Name: Insurrection
I know just why
This lack of sleep is waiting for me
The hours crawl
Held captive by my unwilling sympathy
And though she stirs
I dare not ask to forgive my past mistakes
Of all my crimes
The worst is pretending I'll be here when she wakes

I'll leave behind
All the scenes and the trials
I fear have swept us away
I'll leave behind, I'll leave behind
Your fading shades of gray

Throughout the years
I've watched us drift
Too far apart to make amends
No strength is left
To try anymore
All this failure and resentment needs to end

I'll leave behind
All the scenes and the trials
I fear have swept us away
I'll leave behind, I'll leave behind
Your fading shades of gray

I'll leave behind
All the scenes and the trials
I fear have swept us away
I'll leave behind, I'll leave behind
Your fading shades of gray
I'll leave behind, I'll leave behind
Your fading shades of gray
I'll leave behind, I'll leave behind
Your failing schemes to stay
It's just the way I feel
It's just the way I feel
It's just the way I feel
It's just the way I feel
