Fallen*

Not a lot to say about it so here it is the love song in all it's jaded glory. Take it for what it's worth. The lyrics have always been loose and open on this song and I think we have about 3 different versions of it... It ended up being an exercise in extreme dynamics most people aren't ready for. It started as a quick fill easy song to get our then drummer up to speed on and fill the set list. I think we may revive it for any big shows we have. (V1) On my way to set the stage for running, our run in. yeah. Contemplate our saving grace you'll notice, you know this. We'll remain ever unchanged for me, yeah. So contemplate and save your grace for me. yeah. (cho) Fallen for you. (repeats) (V2) Rising waves in passionate, in my vein, in my lung. Yeah. We remain ever the same the wanted, your wanted. yeah. Break these chains that ever restrained me. So stake your claim, and set the pace for me. yeah. (cho) Fallen for you. (repeats) (Break) Cold remains endure the dead tides. Live the stains, the blood, your eyes... Buried that face down. Bury back face down. Buried that face down. Bury back face down. Down. Down. Tortured release the blood. Bleed for the one... My blood... Running running for it. Run for run for your life. (cho) Fallen for you. (repeats)

Bounded*

This song is the first song I ever wrote from way back in my Absint day's. Used to rock it acoustics style on the Grandpas guitars. It has evolved a lot over time and I am surprised to say it is still viable it gives a dynamic touch to our set when needed. It is your basic bitter sweet love anti love song about overcoming the inability to love. It's full of your standard contradictions and mis-trust, you know like any real relationship. It ends in the final admission of acceptance of the others BS. In the end we all peddle our own level of BS in relationships and it's just who's doesn't freak you the fuck out. (V1) Bat your eyes bounded for me. No no one, theres no one left of me. Save your smiles, save them for me no nothing, theres not much left of me. You say that we tried. You say that I don't care. You saying that we died, and there's no one left to blame. Your saying that we lied, and you know that I want truth. Your saying that we lie, you know that I want nothing. (V2) By your side and bounded for me. No no one, theres no one left of me. Save your smiles, save them for me no nothing, theres not much left of me. You say that we tried. You say that I don't care. You saying that we died, and there's no one left to blame. Your saying that we lied, and you know that I want truth. Your saying that we lie, you know that I want nothing. (Bridge) Buy... Buy... Your lies. your lies. Buy... Buy... Your lies. your lies.

A Givin Rise to Beautality*

Beautality - Beauty in brutality. Observation of the beauty of the destructive forces of nature. Destroying in order to create. These are the ideas behind the title. (V1) To live to die. to a world that complicates before you break. To rise to fall. to the ones who stand up and forever will be beat down. Pray for your world. The harshness underling tendencies. The callous thought's in evil minds. Pray for the moment that rips us apart from your world. Pray for a savior to release the sins of your heart. Pray for a savior to to take back the sins of your soul. your soul. (Chorus) And all I want is to live, to live without this curse. And all I want is to live, to live without this curse. (V2) Bring back those days of gone those bleeding hearts before you break. Bring back those days of old that convenience has stripped away. Bring back before. Bring back the time before we all felt so self important. Prey for your world. The harshness underling tendencies. The callous thought's in evil minds. Pray for the moment that rips us apart from your world. Pray for a savior to release the sins of your heart. Pray for a savior to to take back the sins of your world. your world. And all I want is to live, to live without this curse. And all I want is to live, to live without this curse. (bridge) And all I want is to live, to live without this curse. And all I want is to live, to live without this curse.

*Amalgam* the begining.

Amalgam was initially the name of this band. Or Project Amalgam/the Amalgam Project something like that. I initially was attracted to the idea of the blending of different types of metal. Since I personally enjoy a wider spectrum of metal (prog/hard rock, Hardcore, Death, Black, Grind, Thrash, punk, pop, hip hop etc ect...) The BLT name is still a reflection of that with out the limitations of just metal's 10 billion sub genres... The idea was to do mar some of those lines in metal doing something different but retain some strong mostly/clean vox. To blur the lines of what people define current music with. These terms or rules are meant to be broken. Since this was the first song that I wrote (entirely) for this project and put the most time into. I thought it fitting to pay homage and use it as the song title. I only wish I had as much time to pay to every song. The lyrics are a reflection (or interpretation)of my inception into the world painted with shades of parental and life relationships. Echo's of the conditions that lead to my existence and how that has effected me. Intro: Breathe me in your callous heart while our lives unfold. Now begin again and discard the truth while our tongues lie untold. Here within this utero they formed a murmured heart, from two holes(wholes) bisected infected to create the torment within you. (V1) Within the heart we all create, and in the mind evolve again. Our lives formed from environment. Corrupt the flesh of the infant that grows here. . . Bound by this indecision, porn of this new transmission, abuse this inner vision. cut of the cloth you'll bury me in. In descending, in descending, in descending, descend me... (Pre) Cutting out the chromos, shutting down that side, don't regret the growth. (chorus) In my bones grew my disdain, truth running out the door, on the wars waged. In my bones grew my disdain, truth running out the door, on the way, on the way to you... (Bridge) War war war (repeats) Within our selves In our hearts, In our souls, In our. . . Kill us now with concrete and bound us again now with, concrete, concrete. (chorus) In my bones grew my disdain, truth running out the door, on the wars waged. In my bones grew my disdain, truth running out the door, on the way, on the way to you...

Tridon*

I hold the fist that draws you. & I know the things that torment. What we have and what we could have had together. Dispel your visions of fear and know your place with me here. What we have and what we could have had forever... (pre) The vision starts to fail, you get to far behind. The darkness seeps in your eyes, that we are. (chorus) We span our lifetime just waiting for it to... You can span a lifetime just waiting for your heart. You can span a lifetime waiting for it too We can span a lifetime just waiting for your heart. The shattered pieces of glass the stale taste of blood in my mouth. What we have and what we could have had together. In time you will know this and take your place with me here. What we have and what we could have had forever... (pre) The vision starts to fail, you get to far behind. The darkness seeps in your eyes, that we are. (chorus) We span our lifetime just waiting for it to... You can span a lifetime just waiting for your heart. You can span a lifetime waiting for it too We can span a lifetime just waiting for your heart. (bridge) Your heart your heart your heart. your heart your heart your heart.

The Duality of Man* (*song lyrics)

Living a lie, selling the dream. The coldest fate, bursting the seams. Regurgitate what we've seen before, so passive-eyed (pacified) while selling our selves... (short) (Chorus) Rip this world apart. our lives. bleeding inside your mind. Buried into the bastard. /turning into this master. Fuck. your lies. (Repeated) Fuck your lives. (break) Bury before it's too late for this compromise. Burning now in my contingency is only that you should die. Now. In your fucking, desire to become this effigy. in my fucking, desire to become this eulogy. In your fucking heart, in my fucking mind, in your fucking desire... It's all hopeless. . . Living a lie, selling the dream. The coldest fate, bursting the seams. Regurgitate what we've seen before, so passive-eyed (pacified) while selling our selves... (short) (Chorus) Rip this world apart. our lives. bleeding inside your mind. Buried into the bastard. /turning into this master.

Time

Don't we all wish we had more of this. It seems we never have enough of this as a group. We should be recording some new and old music right now but it seems to difficult a task to manage for certain individuals to commit their time to this. I think there is much more to this than just the time and I am in no way talking shit. Just expressing frustration for our slow progress. I know we could be on a much better level than we are and the only thing really holing us back is this. I would love to move on to newer better music but we must document where we are and where we were first. I am happy with the progress of our current line up of songs. I grow tire of getting on shows we should be headlining. But all these things come in good time... :\ j
