about

This album was written in the last couple months of 2012 in an effort to have an EP pre-sale option for our Kickstarter campaign (which was a success). We used our 8 hours of recording time to track all the drums at Rockhouse Studio in St. Joe (a prize for winning 2012's Rockin 101 Battle of the Bands). This is the first album with the new line-up including Johnny Fly on Bass and backing vocals. One of the most cohesive and organic SotF releases to date.

Track Name: A Crown of Caution (THOD pt.1)
Born in wealth, given everything
except for feelings for the finer things.
So he plays the part, but won't get too close,
lest they break him down and he drops his crown of security.

On top of the world, looking down for the ground
It's nowhere to be found.
How far will he go to break a heart of stone?
And will he ever find his pretty queen?
What if he falls harder and farther than he's never fell before?
Shattered to his core, he's gonna have a hard time bouncing back
and finding love a again.
One that could offer fealty.

Prince Charming, yes he has that look.
The one that they love and they throw themselves.
He just takes his pick, none of them will stick.
Simply discarded and he's safe again in security.

Rules are made to be broken aren't they?
But, just this time.
Has our king finally found his rightful queen?
So devine.
She's just the kind that would join him...
Track Name: Fallen Kingdom (THOD pt.2)
Could this be the one?
The woman he's been hiding from for an age.
Like Helen of Troy has risen to strike again.
We all pay for the wars we wage.
Her beauty compares to that of nothing else,
yet there's something that doesn't quite meet the eye.
But he's growing ripe just sitting on the vine.
So, he decides to give this one a try.

'Cuz she's a queen like none have seen.
Pure divinity from some kind of dream.
Kingdoms fall and she'll raze them down.
On to the next one, caution to the crowns.

Unable to resist the magic of the Siren's call,
he seems to be mesmerized, stripped of will.
Failing to heed and listen to his own advice,
He has a void only she can fill.

His reason is smitten and the ending is written…
But there's something about her…
A ripple on the water…
Underneath there's a monster.
See the waves on the water?

'Cuz she's a queen like none have seen.
Pure divinity from some kind of dream.
Kingdoms fall and she'll raze them down.
On to the next one, On to the next one. (She'll raze them down)
'Cuz she's a queen like none have seen.
Pure divinity from some kind of dream. (She'll raze them down)
Kingdoms fall and she'll raze them down.
On to the next one, caution to the crowns. (She'll raze them down)
Track Name: Ever (THOD pt.3)
All the wells have run dry
Now's her time to move on
Our king holds his head high
Wonders where he went wrong

Will I see you again?
To be near you again
Just to hear you again

He feels like he's been played
How could he lose this game?
Yet he cannot help but
Love her still just the same
The days turn into years
He done cried all his tears
Depression shares a cold embrace
Now he wonders if she's ever had a taste

Will I see you again?
To be near you again
Just to feel you again
Please let me see you again

Our king seems to have lost his crown
His whole kingdom came crashing down
Lines grow harder on his face
Falling fast and further from grace
He can't manage to keep one burning question from his mind

Will I see you again?
To be near you again
Just to hear you again
Please let me see you again
Track Name: Absolute Despondency (THOD pt.4)
He packs his bags and prepares for his journey to the unknown
He knows there is a chance that he won't be coming home
Reason left long ago, but his motives remain strong
Sick mind, he cannot tell the difference
Right and wrong

She hears a wrap on the door
Who's there, she has not a clue
Open
See the shell of a man she once knew

These are the years that slip away
Let's not waste no time
I won't leave your side
I'll never change my mind
And when the world will decide to break into a thousand skies,
I won't look away
I'll never close my eyes

You poor thing, I thought I made it clear
We're done
Chuckling, until her eyes fall down to the gun
Wait dear, reconsider what you're about to do

I loved you much more than myself
And I will wait for you in Hell
It's too late I can't start over now
Raised piece, in a flash his body is down
It's down

It's been decades, she can't remove his image from her mind
She knows and she regrets her folly
Lying still, gripping her bed sheets tightly one last time
Eyes glazed, whispering out "I'm sorry"
Track Name: 1000 Skies (THOD pt.5)
Instrumental
Track Name: Removed
The hard truth that you'll learn
When to crash, when to burn
Or just bring the whole damn factory down
The feeling you'll know
When you're just letting go
And you can't find a fuck to give

Forcing a break on the struggler
Every day stacked on the other
Finding your place in the system
Leaving the race to start another

Angry monkeys inside
Tossing dung like our pride
Still we like to dream of change
Fear the unknown
We commit to what's shown
Then we abandon mystery

Forget yourself
Removed from the pain
Forgot my name, but I found it again
You think you know me?
Because I don't know me
You think you own me?
NOBODY owns me
Rewrite yourself and discover your place

What if we could just start over?
Would we stay the same with a different name?
Calling it fate or destiny
Still I can't wait, just to be free

(chorus)
Rewrite your self and discover your
Place
Track Name: Too Close
You're leaning in
Your breath stinks
Ya got nothin that I wanna hear
You look dumb
Your shirt is dirty
Ya got nothin that I wanna hear

Because you're too close and I can't get enough
Space between you and me

Lips movin
They never stop
Do me a favor and get outta here
I hate to tell ya
You fucking suck
Do me a favor and disappear

Because you're too close and I can't get enough
Space between you and me
Track Name: Carry (Lifted & Free Mix)

Track Name: Light (Mike Lardy's Mourning Mix)

Track Name: The End of the World
I'm happier in the shadows
So shine yourself elsewhere
Because it's lovelier in silence

But it's not the end of the world
You're still a little girl
It's not the end of the world and you're still a little girl

Heaven and Hell are real things for you
Let's parade the charade just like a little girl
Maybe it is the end of the World
