about

"...reliable power pop with an edge sharp enough to cut yourself on. Imagine Urge Overkill without the preening, or Material Issue without the eagerness to please."

- Patrick Beach - Austin American-Statesman

"...well-constructed, catchy as hell and presented in a straightforward manner." "...classic combination of clean vocals and crunchy rock riffs."

- Chad Taylor - Des Moines Cityview Magazine

"...a nice dose of distorted guitar, hard-hitting drums and catchy vocal melodies. They start out strong with “The Truth,” “Frank Sinatra” and “Here I Am” all of which are upbeat rocking songs that can pretty easily get stuck in your head. "

- Ted Rogen - The Equal Ground

"...holds its own when compared to expensive productions from groups of similar genres. "Looking for a Mantra" shows exactly how good, energetic musicians with decent amplifiers do more to create a solid rock album than expensive post production ever does.

- John Molseed - Waterloo/Cedar Falls Courier

Track Name: Eulogy
My mind's running rampant on its own
Again I am sleeping all alone
Bewildered by these troubled dreams
All here is nothing as it seems

Feel so isolated in my room
Feels just like another slumber tomb
I can almost hear you start to cry
Nobody here gets out alive

All I want is you
Get my eye on you
All I want is you
Get my hands on you

Now I'm swimming in a sea of black
Drops of sweat running down my back
A voice is calling from the grave
Do you know if you'll be saved?

All I want is you
Get my eye on you
All I want is you
Get my hands on you

All I want is you
Get my eye on you
All I want is you
Get my hands on you
Track Name: Blind Eye
I see you crawlin' back I hear you coming toward my door
Fall from grace you've been replaced my trust you can't restore
Six long years have found me feeling better than before
You're too late it seems like fate you get what you paid for

Why can't someone tell me
Everybody feeds me lies
Why can't someone show me
Look my way and turn a cold blind eye

Toyed with my mind broke my heart and kicked me when I'm down
Played with me, tore me apart and left without a sound
My big mistake was looking at you when you came around
You looks that face your saved grace the only good I found

Chorus

You're back now with a new attack my backs against the wall
Though I promised long ago I won't answer your call
I think about you now and then and I try to stall
I hate you and I know someday that you'll be my downfall

Chorus
Track Name: Pyle Driver
Lock us in the bathroom
Punch my eye until I start to bleed
Roll my hand up in a fist
Ask the question that you seek

Out back by the playhouse,
Faking death just trying to tease me
Chris is dead
Chris is drunk
Chris is high

Pile on Pyle Driver (get off of me, get off of me)
Pile on Pyle Driver (get off of me, get off of me)
Pile on Pyle Driver (get off of me, get off of me)
Pile on Pyle Driver Why do you keep hitting yourself?

Send us to our bedrooms
Turn a deaf ear towards your youngest son
Roll your hand up in a fist
Makes you think that you have won
Track Name: Feeling Better
Never stop considering
the decisions you've made along the way
Might just see that
The slightest deviation from the norm might
be the thing that paves the way
Can't you see I'm

Chorus:
Feeling better now I’ve found
A single voice to raise the sound
Lift the ground reverse the phase
Continue to the end without delay

I see the way you look at life
There's no way I cost you one thin dime
reconsider
Maybe if you stop to notice
the way that I've dedicated time
Can't you see I'm

Chorus:
Feeling better now I’ve found
A single voice to raise the sound
Lift the ground reverse the phase
Continue to the end without delay
