about

Our hero loses his older brother because of his own hubris and foolhardiness. But just when he thinks his time has come, too, figures appear from the night to rescue him.

lyrics

Just shut your mouth,
I've had it with your constant rallying
Put your ear up to the wall
I think there's something going on outside

Can't you hear their footsteps falling
Down the hall?
They've come to take our lives
Away...

They took our lives from us
Long ago

Open the door
Get on the floor
You don't live here anymore
Hands in the air
Where I can see them
Like it matters anyway
Under arrest
It's for the best
As if you even could contest
Not so fast
Not so fast
We're gonna save the best for last

Don't move yet,
Don't let them take you
(Goodbye)

We will sleep in hell tonight
Blanketed in our own sin
Bullets made from steel
Fill coffins made from stone
I should have listened to you
Vigilance in all we do
I have never been alone
Ptolomea, rest your bones

Don't let them see you bleed
Just a minute until you're free
With your brother's death, remember this
Let your anger fill your fists

We will sleep in hell tonight
Blanketed in our own sin
Bullets made from steel
Fill coffins made from stone
I should have listened to you
Vigilance in all we do
I have never been alone
Ptolomea, rest your bones

All I can think of
In this final moment
Is that I could have saved you
From this tragic fate we've suffered
And with my final breath
I beg you please, abandon this quest
This is no battleground for
Mortals like us

Can't you hear my heartbeat slowing
In my chest?
They came and took my life away
oh...

This is the resistance
You are not gods but men
Now it is us who pass
Judgement as you fall flat
Against this cold stone floor
As casualties of war
The tables have been turned
Humanity will learn

about

Gears Under Atlas Montevallo, Alabama

Prog metal band from Alabama tinged with hardcore and post-hardcore. We take as much influence from King Crimson and Rush as we do from The Fall of Troy and At the Drive In. We try to create complex, energetic, and emotional space metal without coming off as pretentious. Let us know how that's going for us. ... more
