Childhood’s sewn in these seams Sometimes it comes and it leaves I remember how you used to say “Life is endless motorway” Was it love we were after in these endless disasters to feel love, and pain, and innocence experienced all at once ? Burning bright Burning bright Well, now there’s a sadness inside you, it’s easy to recognize. Burning bright Burning bright May the sparks illuminate in you what you claim has died. To be led by an impulse so prime it misdirects and sleights the mind and the love you think you feel will masquerade as paradise. Burning bright Burning bright Well, now there’s a sadness inside you, it’s easy to recognize. Burning bright Burning bright May the sparks illuminate in you what you claim has died.

For all those lonely tonight, the feeling is so great. You lack the focus to create. Even the slightest distraction could not keep your mind occupied and your heart purified. There’s no need for a broken heart. His will only be yours in the end. There’s no need for a broken heart. His will only be yours in the end. There’s no use breaking his heart. A casual glance, an unnoticed dance you see him in all men. Check-out time is twelve o’clock. Phone rings. Alarm goes off. There’s no need for a broken heart. His will only be yours in the end. There’s no need for a broken heart. His will only be yours in the end. No need for a broken heart. His will only be yours in the end. No need for a broken heart. His will only be yours in the end.

Darkest Days 03:32
Be free of your past. You’ve done nothing wrong. Freedom is as scarce as the day is long. Stand up tall. Stand up straight. You got nothing to fear, no business being ashamed Of your love, love, love. Brother, we all need love to get us through the darkest days to come. Your memories will never fade. A loss is just a debt that’s left unpaid. Soon one day, it’ll all be gone. It’s a physical world and a race against time never won. Except for love, love, love. Sister, we all need love to get us through the darkest days to come. Without love, love, love, where would we be, my love ? Unarmed against the darkest days to come ? Love, love, love. Honey, we all need love to get us through the darkest days to come. Without love, love, love, where would we be, my love ? Unarmed against the darkest days to come. Are these days the darkest days to come ?

So many faces in front of me Familiar ‘cause I want them to be Nothing to guide me, no one for company. Family who’s a distant relation gives me a little bit of consolation. Mind’s on a far-off destination. Shadows of another place invade my imagination. Somewhere is someone’s living room where I hear them singing out a party tune. And tell me why my heart aches like it’s new ? It ain’t new. Exile in the night. Exile in the night. Exile in the night. Exile in the night. Complications arrive at every pace. No one’s committed, so I often stray. No roots to take ground, no roots to take away ‘cause changes are between far and few. Someone down the hall sings party tunes. Tell me why my heart aches like it’s new ? ‘Cause it ain’t new. Exile in the night. Exile in the night. Exile in the night. Exile in the night . . .

Old Soldier 04:32
Outside, I’m squeaky clean. Inside, my mind’s obscene. The minute fifty punk rock song, the movement that’s thirty minutes long. When I was new, they smiled. When I was new, they were reconciled. Call it love at first sleight meant to patronize, then extradite. Understand. Understand. I’m still hoping to push on. With passionate haste, the years, they laid me waste buried in the dust and debris of a peace that I’ll never get to see. Understand. Understand. I’m still hoping to push on. Don’t you think it’s about time. Put your hand inside of mine. Don’t you think it’s about time ? Put your hand inside of mine. Don’t you think it’s about time ? Put your hand inside of mine. Understand. Understand. I’m still waiting to bow out.

You said it with such grace, I should have read it on your face. You’d burnt it down just to laugh about it later. And you said it with such malice, who would have known you’d be so callous ? And so you try again, but not this time. It’s the bitter bitter end. I don’t know how I was convinced to overlook your Judas kiss. I’m telling you now I know who you are. I’m telling you now. And thought it looks like you’re healing, I know you’re really just feeling up a crowd to hustle for your next trick. When I forgive, you trespass. When I create, you just smash it all to pieces. I’m left to clean the splinters of our trust. Now I see through your artifice as I receive your Judas kiss. I’m telling you now I know who you are. I’m telling you now, I know who you are-- a counterfeit star a counterfeit star a counterfeit star I’m telling you now. I’m telling you now. A counterfeit star.

There is a light a light that shines deep in your heart, but not in mine. You may have what it takes, but you’ll never know the ache, ‘cause there is a light a light that shines. A light that shines. A light that shines. There is a music in my mind. Here in the present, and for all time. You’re the interpreter, motivation unknown. Still, there’s a music in my mind. In my mind. In my mind. When I feel this exposed, my heartbeat’s a kick drum about to unload, plotting its escape, pounding out a sound wave. A complimentary piece, to go from accomplice to accomplished thief. I’m counting on you, on you on you on you without remorse or regret or reserve. No matter the master this madness may serve, I’m counting on you, on you on you on you on you. I’m counting on you. There is a light a light that shines deep in your heart, but not in mine. There is a light, a light that shines deep in your heart but not in mine

Time up here is touch and go. Fireflies my only glow. Pen and paper on my knees, this is no apology. The taste of dirt and sound of waves crashing through my brain. This respite, I only know when I feel this arbor grow like the jasmine butterfly sits beneath the sun. Woke up under the same sky, broken bottle by my side. Further up a line of lights clip the wings off of my flight Knowing that they will succeed, I approach my enemy. Pen to paper, heart in hand, now my legs--they try to stand like the jasmine butterfly sits beneath the sun. Redelivered to uncertainty when this urgent letter betrays me. Like the jasmine butterfly sits beneath the sun, redelivered to uncertainty when this urgent letter betrays me.

Oh, how I long to die at sea. No one surrounding me, but you darling but you darling but you darling. And how I’d long to pull you in. Sink like the sun at horizon. It’s so haunting it’s so haunting ain’t it, darling ? Paradiso lays wait. Paradiso lays wait. Dive with me to the bottom of the sea. Dive with me to the bottom of the sea. Dive with me to the bottom of the sea. We’d gaze into the atmosphere until the stars would disappear-- Roman candles burning out and undulating. The salt soothes a loud wound’s pain. Voices drowned swim on the waves, but you darling but you darling but you darling. Paradiso lays wait. Paradiso lays wait. Dive with me to the bottom of the sea. Dive with me to the bottom of the sea. Dive with me to the bottom of the sea. Paradiso lays wait. Paradiso lays wait.

about

Aloud Los Angeles, California

Some bands you can always recognize–they produce the same sound, even the same song, year after year. But great musicians don’t just keep playing, they constantly evolve. Aloud’s new record, Sprezzatura, is a showcase for a band joyfully shedding the old and moving boldly forward, both sonically and lyrically. ... more
