about

The much delayed, mildly anticipated, and largely unlistenable debut record from Nothinggrad.

I've got this set up so that you can download it for free if you wish. You also have the option to pay what you think it's worth. Everything you may contribute goes towards making the next record (no, it's not just beer money) and helps me keep making music. Either way, thanks for listening and thank you all so much for the support.

Track Name: Eleventh Hour
There is no death
There is only the death of hope
There is no surrender
There is only the surrender of your will
There is no imprisonment
There is only the captivity of your soul
I am the author of this story
I am the master of my fate
I am the captain of my soul
And I will overcome
I will overcome
Track Name: This Burning Blindness
The promise and the pain
The sickness and the shame
The solace and the rain
Returning what we’ve lost
The noose around your neck
You can taste the hangman’s foul breath
A lost, hopeless cause
No one to mourn your loss
So throw me to the fucking wolves
You know that I’ll be back
When we stand over your bloated corpse
I will lead the pack

Unrest, and shallow graves
Have paved the way for what you see
No heroes here, in blackest days
In cowardice you waste away

You are not a victim
And I am not a villain
The herd will never stray
They come to cull the weak
The sleepwalking tyrant
Finds his disciples among the weak
With hollow hearts and empty eyes
These sheep are wearing sheep

Unrest, and shallow graves
Have paved the way for what you see
No heroes here, in blackest days
In cowardice you waste away
Track Name: Earth and Sky Collide
Losing words and losing light
Crossing paths, as earth and sky collide
Chase the sun the sun
I know the cost is high

With a fleeting glimpse an a sudden glance
Like a half-remembered dream
If I see you there would you tell me
What it’s supposed to mean?
There’s purity in this machine
I know
Cut the strings of the heart
And the slivers of hope
Track Name: Chasing Armoured Angels Pt.1
Buried deep between the pages
Is the lie on which your thrive
Good god, I hope that you remember
Oh god, you shouldn’t forget
You should not forget it

That on a day like today
I can barely see the city
From where I stand
Where I stand

Chasing armoured angels
(We elevate)
Chasing Armoured Angels
(We fall away)
Chasing Armoured Angels
(Do you believe?)
Chasing Armoured Angels
Do you see?

Unearth your curse
To want, to wait
What do you dream of?
What you can never have
We pursue the fallacy
Across the dark
It’s us and them
So pick a side

Oh god, you shouldn’t forget
You should not forget it

That on a day like today
I can barely see the city
From where I stand
Where I stand

Chasing armoured angels
(We elevate)
Chasing Armoured Angels
(We fall away)
Chasing Armoured Angels
(Do you believe?)
Chasing Armoured Angels
Do you see?
Track Name: Chasing Armoured Angels Pt.2
(Waiting for answers
Waiting out the storm
But at the end of the day
You have a choice to make
We all have a choice to make)

(There is no death
There is only the death of hope
There is no surrender
There is only the surrender of your will
There is no imprisonment
There is only the captivity of your soul
I am the author of this story
I am the master of my fate
I am the captain of my soul
And I will overcome
I will overcome)

Here I am
Track Name: A Fine Day to Go to War
(‘Tis a fine day to go to war)

Walk into the sun
And now they see there’s nothing left
White lights and blackened dreams
Let it go
You’re left behind
A fetid impulse, left to die
You’re twisting and writhing on the inside
Dig your hole

Cut off
Suffocate the soul
Bleed out
Surrender all control
Burn it
Burn it to the ground
Burn it
Oh fucking burn it
Burn it to the ground

I’ve been up all night
Watching the city burn
I’ve been up all night
I know we can’t return
Track Name: Blood, Dust and Bone
We’re on a long and lonely road to nowhere
Following stars and sleeping by the light
The way is hard, the way is long man
And so we sing this lonely song

And so we sing a lonely song

Strike out
Set a course for home
Look up to the sky
Into the thunderdome
Track Name: Supernovas
Instrumental. Sort of.
