about

Arising From Montreal, Québec

As the years go by at a frantic pace the young men who thought their music resonated throughout the world saw their dreams crumble as the hourglass flowed through time.After fifteen years spent playing unchosen venues and reaching unsuited crowds,
they felt the urge of going back to the drawning board.

Track Name: Return to Sender
I won’t concern myself

With all the shit you say

You act like God himself

I don’t envy you in any way

Locked up in your castle

Real life upon a shelf

Happy, Superficial

You’re so above anything else


Keep up appearances

No matter what happens

Your lies will get exposed

You’re an empty box

What’s better than returning to sender


More words, more promises

Are bend and broken

You can’t pretend to be the victim

I had to learn the hard way

Needed to cut the tie

You’re to blame, what a shame

You’re just a myth these days


Keep up appearances

No matter what happens

Your lies will get exposed

You’re an empty box

What’s better than returning to sender



Keep up appearances

No matter what happens

Your lies will get exposed

You’re an empty box

What’s better than to lock you up and throw away the key

What’s better than, now I have to livenext to me

What’s better than returning to sender
Track Name: Was it You
Never one for anything good in this life

Cannot cope, cannot dodge

Every blow’s a knockout

I’m awake, I’m awake

But in a coma in my mind

Crawling up the well

Grasping at the light


Everytime, things are going fine

Something drags me down


Or was it you

Or was it you

Who gave up on me when I was face down on the ground

Or was it you

Or was it you

Who let me think that I am worthless, and unwanted

(I almost gave up)


Never thought you would stab me in the back

Take me to a hell you call home

A world turned to black

Wide awake, wide awake

And I’m opening my eyes

Crawling out the well

Now you’re in my sights


Everytime, things are going fine

Something drags me down


Or was it you

Or was it you

Who gave up on me when I was face down on the ground

Or was it you

Or was it you

Who let me think that I am worthless, and unwanted

(I almost gave up)



Everytime, things are going fine

Something drags me down


Or was it you

Or was it you

Who gave up on me when I was face down on the ground

Or was it you

Or was it you

Who let me think that I am worthless, and unwanted

(I almost gave up)
Track Name: The Day That Never Came
Coming back home empty handed

After all that waiting

I feel like I’ve been burned

I’m asking for more

Coming through the city

Without hearing a single sound

A ghost without a name

Soars in my mind


This heart was made for beating

These lungs are made for breathing

This fire is made for burning

This is the light I never saw


Give me what you promised me

It means so much to me

Who’s left to blame

For the day, for the day, that never came

Single best day of my life

Turned to the single worse

My world is falling apart

It’s like I’m fucking cursed

I never realize how time affected me

The clock tick tocking in the back of my mind


This heart was made for beating

These lungs are made for breathing

This fire is made for burning

This is the light I never saw


Give me what you promised me

It means so much to me

Who’s left to blame

For the day, for the day, that never came


Give me what you promised me

It means so much to me

Who’s left to blame

For the day, for the day, that never came

Give me what you promised me

It means so much to me

Who’s left to blame

For the day, for the day, that never came
Track Name: Your Beliefs
So many questions without answers

All we want is just something we can hold on to

Impossible to explain

Anything to dull the pain

Nothing easy left to do


So we just trust the first to come

Satisfying explanation

And we jump aboard not carrying as much

Is it innonence, is it blindness

Ignorance, or just, a simple desire to believe

I believe


If you knew that everything was wrong would you stop believe in

Or would you keep it that way

If you realize that what you’ve learn was only based on a lie

Will you defy your beliefs

Your beliefs

Will you defy your beliefs

Defy your beliefs


Since day one we wanna believe

That somebody or someone can lean the way

Because we think, that we’re weak

We can’t do it on our own

We can’t stand on our two feet


So we just trust the first to come

Satisfying explanation

And we jump aboard not carrying as much

Is it innonence, is it blindness

Ignorance, or just, a simple desire to believe

I believe


If you knew that everything was wrong would you stop believe in

Or would you keep it that way

If you realize that what you’ve learn was only based on a lie

Will you defy your beliefs

Your beliefs

Will you defy your beliefs

Defy your beliefs

I you knew that everything was wrong would you stop believe in

Or would you keep it that way

If you realize that what you’ve learn was only based on a lie

Will you defy your beliefs

Your beliefs

Will you defy your beliefs

Defy your beliefs

Your beliefs

Will you defy, will you defy

Your beliefs
Track Name: One Life
Is it more that I can take or can I handle this

I refrain myself from doing the things I miss

Can’t stop and take a bow

This is how it’s got to be now

Can’t shake the feeling that eyes are all on me

We shift the blame over to society

When did we stop dreaming

When do we start believing

I envy birds who get to fly away

Until I grew my own wings

One life for me to get through

One life to finally find the truth

One life, one life, worth dying for

One life to make things right

One life to take the spotlight

One life, one life, to leave them wanting more

Staring at the ceiling and all I can do is pray

Tomorrow is hope for a better day

Will we be satisfied

When can we finally shine

I envy birds who get to fly away

Until I grew my own wings

One life for me to get through

One life to finally find the truth

One life, one life, worth dying for

One life to make things right

One life to take the spotlight

One life, one life, to leave them wanting more

One life for me to get through

One life to finally find the truth

One life, one life, worth dying for

One life, one life, worth dying for

One life, one life, to leave them wanting more
