about

Thrown together last minute, this collection of songs are much closer to my heart than the last batch. They better depict the range of styles this group can and will traverse. A few are more up beat and just as heavy as our first record, while a few are a bit more revealing.

'All Things Shining' as a title reflects an outlook on life. Not mine necessarily, but an outlook nonetheless. Life would be simpler and far easier if we all could wander through it with all things shining, nothing dark or dreary. Unfortunately, that is never the case, which is why the title is a sentiment and not reality.

The artwork was designed around this idea as well - the past always seems a little brighter than the present, simply because we tend to only focus on all things shining and ignore the rest. That, and I've always had an affinity for the typography of the 70's and cheap wood paneling.

I hope you enjoy this batch as much as the first. Please share and support us.

Track Name: Exit Wound
What's left to say when all that needs to be, has been?
You blew away like leaves caught in the wind.
I tried to reach you but my words have gone to waste.
There's no point in chasing you anymore, you're filled with hate.

If you knew all along how this would end, why did you keep me
in your heart?

Exit 63
Feeling so empty
With fading memories, I exit this exodus
Exit me at exit 63

I've apologized until I was blue in the face
and I've come to terms with my self, and my fate
Now that we've changed, I see that you were never there anyway
so I'll save you the trouble of lying and saving face.

We both knew all along how this would end,
but I'll always keep you
in my heart.

Exit 63
Feeling so empty
With fading memories, I exit this exodus
Exit me at exit 63

Exit 63
Fuck being empty
I will keep trying
to exit this exodus
Exit me at Exit 63
Track Name: The Jupiter Effect
When she looks to me, I can hardly breathe.
Eyes that lie awake, just another mistake.

Let go, but make sure you know

This is one more time, and I'm gone.
I can't lead this life anymore.
I'll leave this world behind
but I'm still lost in her eyes.

She'll never know just how far I'd go.
Just to be with her, I'd cross the universe.

Let go, but make sure you know.

This is one more time, and I'm gone.
I can't lead this life anymore.
I'll leave this world behind
but I'm still lost in her eyes.

I would try, but I'm gone.
I will try when I'm gone.

This is one more time, and I'm gone.
I can't lead this life anymore.
I'll leave this world behind
but I'm still lost in her eyes.
Track Name: Downer
If there's a cure to my illness, would it be bad if I had it all along?
You say you need to feel empty, so you fill the holes with sex and drugs.
Is it enough?

Do you sleep at night? Are you alright?

And can you take me somewhere far away?
So I won't have to wait around anymore.
And can you take the pain far away?
So I won't have to face my thoughts anymore.

I just have to keep saying I'll be OK and it'll happen
or at least I hope.
You'll never be as young as you are right now, so don't waste it
kid, don't wait.

Are you sure you're fine? You don't seem alright..

And can you take me somewhere far away?
So I won't have to wait around anymore.
And can you take the pain far away?
So I won't have to face my thoughts anymore.
Track Name: Footprints
On speaking terms I don't say much
Thinking words I can't conjure up
Are you waiting for me to come around?
In the same old spots we walk again
Are we walking in our footprints?
I don't know how I feel about it yet

If you don't want to move on, just stand in place
When you don't want me anymore, just throw me away

Wishing things I only fear
Wait for you to say what I want to hear
Are you waiting for me to come around?
Torn between the opposites
I took wrong turns, but I'm not lost yet
I don't know how I feel about all of this

If you don't want to move on, just stand in place
If you want something more, then take it away
If you don't want to give up on me, great
But when you don't want me anymore, just throw me away
Away, away

We'll never be the same again.
Track Name: Up
I refuse to wait around just for you to tell me you could live without
my moodiness and confusion
to tell me that I'm losing

Tell me when you figure out where it is I'm going
Tell me when you figure out where I've come from
Tell me when you figure out where I'm going to
Where the hell am I going?

I will not be a mistake, a question mark on Life's page
I only sit alone for now, because someday soon I'll figure out
Why it is no one understands
and why it is I can't cry on command
Someday soon, I'll be away from this place
Up with the birds, or in outer space

Tell me when you figure out where it is I'm going
Tell me when you figure out where I've come from
Tell me when you figure out where I'm going to
Where the hell am I going?

I am more than human being
Life is more than you and me

Tell me when you figure out where it is I'm going
Tell me when you figure out where I've come from
Tell me when you figure out where I'm going to
Where the hell am I going?
