lyrics

[Verse 1]

I see my colleagues stand before me
Crumbling to ash beside the dead sea
I know it's all just an illusion
Fueled by a self induced delusion
I won't let it take me down

[Verse 2]

My mind erupts a twisted vision
Of shambling pawns that lack decision
I see a figure wreathed in fire
His worshipers burn with desire
They all fall down to their knees

[Bridge]

What is this crowd of tortured souls that all resemble me
They terrorize me as I dream
And every time I close my eyes they're staring back at me
It's time I listen to myself
And break from this nightmare in me


[Verse 3]

Can you see the lightening
Racing around in the sky
Ohhhhh Yeah
He's nearly here
Tension rising high

Can you feel the hoof beats
Crashing down onto the sea
Ohhhhh yeah
He's nearly here
Getting closer to me

[Chorus 1]

Atop a mountain crying what's become of me
Confused on whether I should stand me ground or flee
My questions bellow forth and echo all around
The flame red bull comes to the claim the mortal ground

[Verse 4]

Charging through the sea foam
Flame rips out of the sand
Ohhhhhh yeah
Destruction reigns
Make your final stand

Bodies litter the coastline
The people all cower in fear
Ohhhhhh yeah
What does it mean
Now the end is near

[Chorus 2]

Atop a mountain crying what's become of me
Confused on whether I should stand me ground or flee
My questions bellow forth and echo all around
The flame red bull comes to the claim the mortal ground

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.
