Hernan Rojas Kevin/drums - This guys got swing. Unpredictable, subtle and powerful. The ride work on Going Somewhere is RAD. Drummers, you're gonna love this one. WATCH OUT

Not sure whos on bass but - Bravo! SUPER groovy! On point.

Guitar/singer/guy whos gonna blow your mind, Gio. The guys a mad scientist, the wall of sound that he projects is a MUST SEE. The melodies, rhythms, harmonies and soulfulness is impressive. All while his soft but powerful voice, paints a picture and makes these songs come alive. Favorite track: Going Somewhere Else.

roses
and tulips

what's this

the gardener's here to trim you
the gardener's here to leave you a rot
the gardener's here to pick you
the gardener's here, the gardener's here

the gardener's here
to leave you a rot
the garner's here

Track Name: By The Way
as the rapid train fumbles into pursuit
gaining speed, wearing down my brakes
swollen, gifted and insane
I can see the photographs passing by

it's okay
it's alright
it's just life
of everyday
it's okay
it's alright
it's just life
of everyday

I can see the parallels that frame her face
by the way my eyes trace her lips
try to keep away, hard to keep away
by the gnawing of ants that keep me astray

it's okay
it's alright
it's just life
of everyday
it's okay
it's alright
it's just life
of everyday

remember the days
when we were younger
couldn't hold the wait of my wants
the sound of the ocean
the feeling of sand
weilding a cigarrette
in my hand, it burned
Track Name: Scales
come closer
imagine
a doorstep
tripping you in awe
so mary
immaculate
and joseph
were dying for your love

a bite of
an apple
and the bite of...
oh it's only for the best
and jesus
you gave us
so much
fucking desire

I dreamed up all kinds of settings
your the phantom that haunts my beddings

sometimes I wonder
if you ever moaned a syllable
if my name was easier
to pronounce
and yes I wonder
if your available
I must admit
inanimate

sometimes I wonder
if you ever moaned a syllable
if my name was easier
to pronounce
and yes I wonder
if your available
I must admit
let me animate
with you
Track Name: Going Somewhere Else
first they'll mail you a letter
your final days in reckoning
pull yourself up and take a breath
been chasing last night's bug, again

I saw a bird
fly into a cloud
it's wings were damaged
were damaged by the sun

what reward will I receive if I...?
for defeating alcohol
pull yourself up and take breath
been catching last night's dream, again


I saw a bird
fly into a cloud
it's wings were damaged
were damaged by the sun
I saw a bird
fly into a cloud
it's wings were damaged
were damaged by the sun

wait, hold on a sec
sirens bring out
the colour in your eyes
