about

DAYEATER Austin, Texas

Austin's loudest psychedelic-trio, formed at the beginning of 2014 out of desperation. Our guitar player lost his hand in a tragic 9-string guitar accident, our bass player suffers from a crippling insulin addiction and our drummer is vegetarian. Singing and songwriting comes from all three members, creating powerful soundscapes with our vocal harmonies and psychedelic riffs.

Track Name: Mr. III
[Verse 1]

Aspiration of my life
What is wrong with you
I find you jaded and so shallow
Oh you are so obtuse
Sit on your throne and seem to hate the things
That make up you
Now I'm sitting here and thinking
Oh is this all true

[Chorus 1]

Now that I'm older, is this all over
Or is it just the same old thing
I can't decide which one I like more
The old new or something in between
Respect the past while moving forward
Find a way to bridge the gap
Are you something that I'd die for
Or something that I should forget

[Verse 2]

What happened to your teachings
Filled with individualism
Yeah all that gone
Now it's only pessimism
Oh perhaps I'm worried that in some way
You would disappear from here.
Oh perhaps I'm headed to a place
Oh that I would fear

[Chorus 2]

[Guitar solo]

[Chorus 3]
Track Name: Thx 2 Who
[Verse 1]

How long
Will you look up to the sky
To Find
All the answers when you die

[Verse 2]

What now
Now that you have all that you want
How come
It kept you searching for so long

[Pre Chorus 1]

Until you see that life is all around you
Life is everywhere it seems
That the feeling rolls around you
Like a lucid dream
Racing through the sky, faster than they’ve ever seen

[Chorus 1]
No matter what the world keeps turning
We get by without ever learning

[Verse 3]

Where will we go
Now that the seas have all dried
How will we know
Unless you offer just to try

[Pre Chorus 2]

[Chorus 2]

[Outro]

How long
How long
Track Name: Indigo Chile
[Verse 1]

She screams through the light in the void inside my soul
And every move she makes puts her closer in control
She takes a ride up and down the mind elevator
Make you come around to her sooner or later
But indigo child I gotta see more of you

[Verse 2]

You can find her dancing in the light of the moon
She’ll be back underground before the wave of dawn comes soon
But when closer to you still couldn’t see her
Can’t do nothing wrong to her that you won’t believe her
Indigo child I’ve got to see more of you

[Bridge]

So tell me little darling can this be right
To make me sit and dream and think of you all night
But when the time comes hope they’ll change their minds
And open up their eyes
Open up their eyes.

[Verse 3]

So sit back and relax put the fire out in your eyes.
Won’t you turn around take off that sleek disguise.
She moves through the night with the light of her soul
Travels through the stars knowing that your love is possible.
Indigo child I’ve got to see more of you
Track Name: Sleepy Brain
[Verse 1]

I can’t seem to keep
My head on straight
Got my mind underground
Where the diamonds are made
Hey hey I refrain
Just don’t trust my sleepy brain

[Verse 2]

Got a picture of my dog
Hanging up on the wall
What’s a boy supposed to do
Except trip till I forget how to fall
Hey hey I refrain
Just don’t trust my sleepy brain

[Chorus 1]

I see the sun dropping out of a well
Plunging down toward the gates of hell
We’re all connected to a star in the sky
Forget your wings let your mind fly

[Verse 3]

I put on both my shoes
One soul at a time
My whole canine family
Thinks the game is a crime
Hey hey I refrain
Just don’t trust my sleepy brain

[Chorus 3]

I see a glimpse of the world in a jewel
A crystalline garden with a blanket of dew
We’re all connected to a star in the sky
Go back to bed the sun's
On the rise…
The sun’s on the rise…
Track Name: Paper Dolls
[Verse 1]

I tell all my lies to my paper dolls
Pushing me on and giving me withdrawals
Gotta throw them out, I gotta get it right
They have to be perfect or they won’t believe my lies

[Verse 2]

They’re my only friends I put them on my wall
After a while they start to slip and fall
They listen to me and believe whatever I say
Holding hands connected in a chain

[Chorus 1]

I don’t know them
They don’t know me
I control them
But they own me

[Verse 3]

I tell all my lies to my paper dolls
Pushing me on and giving me withdrawals
Gotta throw them out, I gotta get it right
They have to be perfect or they won’t believe my lies

[Chorus 2]
Track Name: Ballad of Kalliope
[Verse 1]

Searching for the perfect words
Your mind begins to go absurd
Seeing things that can’t be heard
Tomorrow
Echos shatter your reflection
Sunlight sprayed in every direction
Moonlight was not to be mentioned
Tomorrow

[Chorus 1]

Look at all the lonely people
Watch them as they throw away their gems
Come a little bit closer now darling
Can you tell me surely are you one of them
Make up your mind
Make up your mind

[Verse 2]

Freedom of thought becomes so clear
Make the daylight disappear
You won’t have to live in fear
Tomorrow
Cast your heart out to the void
Surrender now stop a avoiding
The thoughts of love and joy
Tomorrow

[Chorus 2]

[Bridge]

The sun cuts loose on aquarian sky
Hold the daylight in your hands
Voices touching hearts that shine that shine
Seeing everything you’ve ever had
Life is change change is to know
Knowing is love
Ask yourself
Make up your mind...
Baby what you stand around for make up your mind!
Track Name: Herb Loose
[Verse 1]

If you knew the things I’ve done
To you my child
You might love another one
Let your love run wild

[Chorus 1]

But baby hold on and wait for me
I’ll give you lovin’ thats so easy to see
You bring me shelter you make it rain
Put your heart in my brain
And let me take you right back to the top

[Verse 2]

If I speak in foreign tongues
Pay me no mind
You wouldn’t understand it anyway
Let your love run wild

[Chorus 2]

[Verse 3]

If I could only find the words
I’d tell you those lies
But I don’t think it’d matter anyway
Because your love is wild

[Chorus 3]
Track Name: Veinte Veinte
[Verse 1]

From alone in the night by garden he waits
Silhouette in the silver moonlight
Waiting for true love to cast away spells
That make room for virtue and vice
He calls out to her with a song in the night
The answer is met with despair
For alone the night by the garden he waits
For a true love that's no longer there

[Chorus 1]

Pasion y amor
Desalojan de corazon
Dejando de alma
Desyindo la vida eterna

[Verse 2]

At the top of the stairs sits a maiden unsure
That a kiss from her lover divine
Would lend answers to questions to high to define
That go gathering out of her mind
Intuition takes flight her heart concealed in stone
She knows now what she has to do
At the top of the stairs sits a maiden now sure
She won’t give her loving to you

[Chorus 2]

[Verse 3]

At the end of the night as sun greets the greets the dawn
Our two lovers with tears in their eyes
A heartache that’s heard without saying a word
Echoes inside of their minds
The candle burns dim like in the sky
With the feeling so pure and so true
At the end of the night as the sun greets the dawn
Will your lover be waiting for you

[Chorus 3]

Pasion y amor
Desalojan de corazon
Dejando de alma
Desyindo la vida eterna

Un amora de la
Estreas con el que adoras
De ya vada mas
Ala de ciello
Track Name: Love w/ You
[Verse 1]

You got me walking on water
And it don’t feel right
Spend the night away I hear them say
You got a whole ‘nother reason tonight

[Verse 2]

I said can you hear me
Calling out to you
Six feet below I didn’t know
You turned me onto something new

[Chorus 1]

Where are you going what you trying to say
You came alive then you flew away
Tell me darling what you trying to do
Can’t you see that I’m in
Love with you

[Verse 3]

I said can you feel me
Reaching out to you
Cast shame on you and the things you do
Lead you on to something new

[Chorus 2]

[Verse 3]

Baby do you love me
The way you say you do
You tell me so, but i don’t know
The way you sound’is untrue.

Well I'm working so hard baby
What we gonna do about it

[Chorus 3]
Track Name: Laxadaze
[Verse 1]

In my mind I’ve come to find
My laxidazical lover
It’s not use I’ve found the truth
Can’t help myself but love her

[Pre Chorus 1]

Tell me where are the clouds
Are they hanging there for you
Is there something that you
Know that you should do

[Verse 2]

Sights and sounds flash all around
Like diamonds flowing sweetly
Calls the men who now know then
There lovers left discreetly

[Pre Chorus 2]

Tell me where are the clouds
Are they hanging there for you
Is there some way that you want to remember
My love shining through

[Chorus 1]

With the time standing still in the wake of the light
Wake of the light
No paperback novels gonna keep us alive
Keep us alive
With the time standing still in the wake of the light

[Chorus 2]
Track Name: Acid Tongue
[Verse 1]

Make sure you’re ready to
Explore inside your mind
Strange things gonna elevate you
To another realm of thought
Transposing feelings
Of love from me to you
Living colors of every vision
Will shine through

[Chorus 1]

He’s got no eyes
He cannot see
He’s got no lips
He cannot speak
He’s come undone
Right from the seams
He’s an acid tongue

[Verse 2]

[Chorus 2]

[Chorus 3]

He cannot see
He’s got no eyes
He cannot speak
He’s got no lips
Right from the seam
He’s come undone
He’s an acid tongue
He’s an acid tongue
Track Name: W/ out Lies
[Verse 1]

Melt into the sunshine headfirst
Make your way across the universe
There are so many things to learn
When you melt into the sunshine
Head first

[Chorus 1]

The purple mountains line the sky
Blocking out the vision
Of the unknown passer-by
Confound the masses without lies
See without the future
Reflect and the revive

[Verse 2]

When you’re gone think of all you’ll leave
Open up your eyes tell me what you see
That is all there is or will ever be
When you go tell me what do you keep

[Chorus 2]

[Verse 3]

What do you think happens when you die
I think it’ll be how it was before I was alive
What do you think happens when you die
I think it’ll be how it was before I was alive
