about

The EP "One Stone" is our second release since our inception, and it features a lot more diversity than our debut album "When North Meets South". The main inspiration, both musicaly and lirically, behind this EP were the recent violent protests in our country that have shown the level of oppression of our citizens but then again the true power of the people when united against a common enemy.

Track Name: In Absence Of...
In absence of human greatness
Ignorance will reign supreme
In silence we’ll remain nameless
Haunted by our years of disbelief

Nothing is for free
Nothing falls from the sky
No other truth beneath
Lies
You can’t lose your creed
If you’re open eyed
You can make your fears
Die

In presence of greatness, pettiness disappears.
In absence of great dreams, pettiness prevails.
In presence of distress, true face will be revealed
In absence of greatness, king will be unveiled
King will be unveiled…

In absence of a light that guides
By darkness we’ll be swallowed
In the hour of the rising tides
Every herd needs a shepherd to follow

Nothing is for free
Nothing falls from the sky
No other truth beneath
Lies
I won’t lose my creed
I am open eyed
I will make my fears
Die

In presence of greatness, pettiness disappears.
In absence of great dreams, pettiness prevails.
In presence of distress, true face will be revealed
In absence of greatness, king will be unveiled
King will be unveiled
Track Name: One Stone
Time has come to choose your side
Find your strength and show your might
Lords of war and weak collide
Faded fires reignite

Can you hear the drums of war?
Can you see the burning skies?
What will make Goliath fall?
Strength and might and sacrifice

I walk the self chosen path
Surrounded by life’s decay
I’m staring in the face of death
I will not look away, look away

Through the ashes and the dust
Dying beauty will resurface
Through the ruins and the rust
Broken king will be triumphant

Lords of war won’t give up their throne
Our strength in numbers lies
In this fight you’re not alone
Time has come so choose your side


One stone took down the giant
All alone I stand in defiance
Track Name: Lesser Man
I’m drowning in this quick sand
Here I’m left to dwell
I’m reaching out for your hand
Just to pull you down as well

My logic is so simple
There is no need to explain
We the people should be equal
So I will make you feel my pain

My feet are tired
My will is breakin’
We gave them power
And we can take it
We can take it back

I’m walking on this tight rope
And they tell me don’t look down
I am losing all of my hope
There is no hope to be found

Their logic is so simple
So they will do everything that they can
To make the people not so equal
To make me feel like a lesser man

Make
You
Feel
My pain

My feet are tired
Will breakin’
We gave them power
We can take it

My feet are tired
My will is breakin’
We gave them power
And we can take it back
Track Name: Dam That River (AIC cover)
I broke you in the canyon
I drowned you in the lake
You a snake that I would trample
Only thing I'd not embrace

Oh, you couldn't dam that river
And maybe I don't give a damn anyway
So you couldn't dam that river
And it washed me so far away

I pushed and then you stumbled
I kicked you in the face
You stare at me so hollow
Got to keep that killin' pace

Oh, you couldn't dam that river
And maybe I don't give a damn anyway
So you couldn't dam that river
And it washed me so far away

I burned the place around you
I hit you with a rake
You piss upon my candle
So proving you're a fake

Oh, you couldn't dam that river
And maybe I don't give a damn anyway
So you couldn't dam that river
And rest in peace Layne...
Track Name: Among The Brave
Born to rule among the fearless and the brave
To break the unbroken rules and never to be tamed
Free at my birth I was and that is how I’ll die
Before my casket’s closed no mountain is too high
From the dirt we came
To the dirt return we will
We will

I wasn’t born
To be tamed
Hard as stone
Bury me among the brave

Skies will be flooded by blackest of crows
Just to unite me with those who had left before
From the dirt we came
To the dirt return we will
The only question is
Will you rise or will you kneel

I wasn’t born
To be tamed
Hard as stone
Bury me among the brave

Wasn’t born
To be tamed
Hard as stone
Bury me among…
The brave
