The Wait

Bradley Rust A really strong take on a sound that is tried by many but rarely is the mark hit. Quite often when bands take a little from many different styles it results in one or two strong tracks and the rest filler. This album though can hold your attention throughout. It's dark, unpredictable and definitely unique. Something you need to be in the right mood for, but when you are, headphones on, crank it, close your eyes and it'll be a trip you remember. Very talented musicians. Give it a few spins. Favorite track: Sowing Scorn.

I am so bold, I let my self unfold I keep I hold, the greatest lie untold Don't cross my path, becareful of my wrath Because I'm dreadful and I'm torn You'd wish you weren't born Can't feel what's real, I'm falling down - I'm standing still I am a god, not wosrhiped thus I'm sad I am feeling bad, role model for the mad Don't treat me well cause I'll prepare your living hell Because I'm dreadful thought I'll haul Through the entrance to your soul Distorted, disordered
Point of You 04:12
Living, I'm still breathing Through the love that I'm giving For-giving is receiving our own fates we are weaving When I look at you I sense what's there of me Step away from the sun Show me what's left to see Seeing is not believing Looks are often deceiving Lying is just denying Drying the rivers I am crying When I look at you I feel what's there of me Step away from the sun Show me what's left to see And I am going down, I'm going down, down, down... Thinking, in thoughts sinking Plant your seed, grow the linking Spider clothe web wider To obtain ugly reminder When I look at you I get what's there of me Step away from the sun Show me what's left to see
Sowing Scorn 05:08
Run, head for the sun Test what you've done Get rid of the man Quit building on sand Fear no one that's clear Wipe off your tear Have eyes on your rear Watch who you draw near And it feels that you haven't moved along That the ties are so strong And it seems that your self left you lorn Blowing your own horn Look, look what you've done Can't hide, yet can run For everything shows under the sun Say, say what you feel 'Cause time won't stand still Stop looping the reel Your image to kill Though the time seems won't reach us any more Lady luck isn't whore Even though I'm washed to your shore I'm breathing it (with) every pore Wide (is) the blame on your side Kill your false pride Reveal what you hide Wherever you lied Real is what you feel Unfasten the seal Look onto next deal No longer to steal Though it feels that you haven't moved along That the ties are so strong And it seems that your self left you lorn Tasting your own scorn
Amethyst 05:42
And then Light will shine bright again It will show us the lane We'll learn... Till when Will we stay with that burn Making straight every turn And I yearn Of being free To touch what's kept for me Flowing in that sea Bearing the Amethyst key The rain Will help wash of the stain What's not broke under strain ...Regained Still dying in creed Spent what's left of me To make you see And pass you the Amethyst key
You say love, is sent from above It worths all the crying, For someone to die And I feel, feel... Time has flown, found me abandoned, alone Left me reading between Lies, remembering what's been But I still feel, feel...
Wake Up Call 04:26
The wake up call, will shock you all, I hope you won't break when you fall Your eyes must see, the tendencies The hidden truths washed off the sea Hear me, don't fear (of) me I'm just a friend you've long forgot It's grown in size, you've circumcised - Your dreams - were exchanged with cheap lies You lived your years beneath your fears No more to cry reptilian tears Deal with me, don't kill me Take your hands from my wounds and heal me Hear me, don't fear (of) me I'm just a friend you've long forgot Sweet sound pleases my soul Thank God for the wake up call It's time to wake, the spell to break No more the sense of real to shake It's time to rise go wash your eyes And witness how your false self dies Grow strong stand tall Un-pause your life start to roll The sound pleases my soul Thank God for the wake up call
Reprise 02:35
I'm falling high once again Like a wind lifted small grain Though I can't wipe off the stain I'm keeping up with the strain Though the time seems won't reach me any more Lady luck's not a whore Even though I am washed to your shore Breathe me by every pore I'm climbing down once again Crying this endless rain I'm moving backwards the same lane Tearing (apart) the veil of shame Though it feels that I haven't moved on That the ties are so strong And it seems that my self is left forlorn Bleeding by every pore
I am alone again, The home I long has led me wrong, Dragged me to descend On the road again Dying to be freed, I’m diving deep Craving to be enchained Stand to what's shown again My mind is gone, to where it belongs Dead drunk from abstain (And) then in time again But then again there is no gain The essence screams repent It +feels life kneels Before the fire, meld with desire It seems blind seems Plug your wire, sending you higher Then I am alone again, What I've longed for has done me wrong, Dragged me to this end On the road again And then again, there was no gain I've bitterly repent
So it's your birthday and you’ve made it so far You have smoked and been to a bar You had sex, you got to drive cars You bought friends, you've reached for a star BUT who are you, Happy birthday to who? Now isn't too late to control of your fate Looking back will show (you) what defines you If your deeds were of made up needs Was it all then just a reaction? Were you biting the hand that it feeds... The real you Who are you? Happy birthday to who What's the matter with you
