about

Born from the ashes of a sleeping volcano, a violent eruption spews out the band’s 3rd album that rains hot symphonic lava and infiltrates your gentle ears. Armed with a thousand adrenaline fueled horses, Burn The Bridge tears into your psyche in what seems to be a feverish dash to the finish line. There’s no doubt, a wall of sonic fury pushes against your chest with a relentless hammering and doesn’t let up. Sprinkle a smidge of crooning romanticized balladeer and a dash of primordial ocelot clamor and you get a insanely infectious hook-laden discoidal that is Burn The Bridge!

Track Name: Forever And A Day
Forever and a day

Going back and forth the good and bad
We said - it was worth a dollar coin
No coming back from the other side
Let's go I’m waiting - forever and a day

Pointless arguing heads and tails
You said - something that I missed
The choice was made to move on
Let's go I’m waiting forever and a day

Plus one more day

We've waited here all day
No ones made a move
Going round and round and round
We've waited here all day
No one’s made a move
Going round and round and round lets go

Going back and forth the good and bad
We said - it was worth a dollar coin
No coming back from the other side
Let's go I’m waiting - forever and a day

Pointless arguing heads and tails
You said - something that I missed
The choice was made to move on
Let's go I’m waiting forever and a day
We've waited here all day
No one’s made a move
Going round and round and round
We've waited here all day
No one’s made a move
Going round and round and round lets go

Whats the point - we’ve made no choice - enough already
And time again we choose this same ole song

We've waited here all day
No one’s made a move
Going round and round and round
We've waited here all day
No one’s made a move
Going round and round and round lets stop
Track Name: Working Man
wake up today-go to work
Get our pay-we ain’t the jerks
We work hard don’t mess around
You and I, we run this town

Working man stand up proud

We are the city-we are it’s veins
We are it’s heart man-you cannot tame

We are united-don’t push us around
We built this city-we can tear it down
Track Name: Waiting Around
I had a list - of complete non concessions
A punk rock girl – no- nonsense disposition
Stupidly contrived –- of shitty expectations
Anger of past - relationship disasters

Then she came along - nothing could go wrong
Swears like a sailor - drinks like a fish
Then she came along - nothing could go wrong
I’ll always put her on the guest list

So many fails- so many non-connections
Why do we try - with so many rejections?
There comes that day - it’s never when you plan it
Then it’s ok - it’s just what I imagined

She plays the stereo way too loud
She holds her fist up oh so proud
She sings along half the words are wrong
But at least we sing the same damn song
Track Name: For A Friend
Sing a verse for Travis rest in peace my friend
Another loss, another soul has found its end
Sleep forever and now you wake no more
The needle did you in it tore your life apart
I see your face when I’m asleep it hurts my heart
Sleep forever and now you wake no more

Now I know your gone – whaoha
I miss the times we shared – whaoha
No way to bring you back – whaoha
It is the end

Sing a verse for Matt rest in peace my friend
Another loss, another soul has found its end
Sleep forever and now you wake no more
The needle did you in it tore your life apart
Sometimes I can make you out playing your guitar
Sleep forever and now you wake no more

Now I know your gone – whaoha
I miss the times we shared – whaoha
No way to bring you back – whaoha
It is the end

And now that time has passed - you know I’m feeling free
I know there’s no going back cus now I feel relieved
and now I feel relief - I think of all the good memories
And go on with my life
And when the time comes to save another soul
I’ll know the words to say because I’ve been here once before
I’ve been here once before - I’ve loved and lost you’ve paid the cost
Next time I’ll save my friend

Time ran out you’re gone – whaoha
We will all move on – whaoha
For those who’ve had their time cut short –whaoha
We miss you all our friends
Track Name: Ghosts Of The Playground
Where does it end
Gotta handful red and blue - one thought - a little skewed
Gotta half full bottle of jack
Laid up on my bedroom floor - awake

We’ve already made our bed
bring yourself to close - afraid to touch down
The writing’s on the wall
I Almost lost my mind within this moment

There’s gotta be a better way - It's not over
Try to be a better man - It's not over
This event won’t be televised - It's not over
Time to be alive, time to live again

We've all felt the brawl
Where life gives us salt our wounds too fresh
We all make a choice
No more giving our fortunes away

Woah! Let’s set this world on fire
Woah! Tonight - We’ll give them something to talk about
give them a story worth of living - time again, again, again and again
Woah! Your heart wrapped around my soul
Woah! Tonight - You caught me in a moment
Now It’s time to find a way, such a great time to be alive
Track Name: Burn The Bridge
You gave up -the chorus for a moment
I took back - the verse so I had something else

And I won’t stand - for something that’s lesser than
And I don’t care - what you thought was fair
We fell into the this hole
And we’re never really wrong

We’ll fight the fight into the night
We’ll raise a flag and say that we’re not coming home
Till the sun comes out again

Watch this! We’re running
to find a home worth standing safe from ashes
I don’t care at all - we’ll burn the bridge tonight

Slow down - these words were meant for something more
We found - a life that’s worth fighting living for

And I won’t stand - for something that’s lesser than
And I don’t care - what you thought was fair
We fell into the this hole
And we’re never really wrong

We’ll fight the fight into the night
We’ll raise a flag and say that we’re not coming home
Till the sun comes out again

Watch this! We’re running
to find a home worth standing safe from ashes
I don’t care at all --

We’ll fight the fight into the night
We’ll raise a flag and say that we’re not coming home
Till the sun comes out again

Watch this! We’re running
to find a home worth standing safe from ashes
I don’t care at all - we’ll burn the bridge tonight

We’ll burn the bridge (into the night) tonight

We’re saying - there’s no time to look back on tomorrow
It’s a song that’s old, played out and dead
We’re saying - there’s a life bigger with less sorrow
Beyond the cloud beyond the dreams
-Let’s burn the bridge into the night
Track Name: Nomad
Old soul - running free
We’ll watch this world burn from the open sea
Midnight runners
I’ve packed my bag and hit this road again

Don’t try to save me
I’m already gone
Don’t wait for me
Cause I’m not coming home
(Not coming home)

My father, born of rags
He took a chance and changed this world again
My Mother, gypsy queen
She roamed these lands, careless and free of change

Don’t try to save me
I’m already gone
Don’t wait for me
Cause I’m not coming home
(Not coming home)
Track Name: I Get Lost
Wipe away this dirty smile
There's shame to be found in my pride
Drive me far from the sun - it burns my eyes

Touch the sand with damaged hands - Blistered fingers
on rusty strings - We’ll brave the seas blindly under angry storms

We both lost more than just words
The purity of harmony bastardized
This beautiful world once sang with joy

Some call it fate others swear its bane
A home built on light now it burns
Lost in a night - it's a tragic poem

Woah - Walk across these redlands
Woah - I get lost in those eyes

Fortunes of gold hidden beyond the walls
That we call home
A child's laugh brings back the smiles
Of a million falling stars
Fortunes of gold hidden beyond the walls
That we call home
A child's laugh brings back the smiles
Of a million falling stars
A million reasons why
As I sit and ponder why
woah -
I get lost

Earth to the stars can you read me
These are my transmissions to you.
Earth to the stars can you hear me
These are my transmissions to you.
Track Name: Grandfather Sleep
I think about time long ago – I think about the road and place we’d always go
Laying across a bed up high – above the world safe in that place and you would drive
There was that lake so far away – a place where you played your guitar and we were free
We were just kids you were our world – you gave us life and gave us voice to sing

And now I know you’ve passed your memory lives
on… in a place where I have learned to silence as the
days go on… and I miss all of the happy memories my
eyes tear up… I Still see your face clearly as I strum
on that guitar you gave me …

Grandfather sleep…..

6 th grade was such an awkward time – things were so strange as I tried just to get by
My father left some time ago – You were a rock for me I should’ve let you know
I think you knew this all along – you gave me my first guitar and a song
Looking back everything’s clear – I try to hide what’s been a few hard years
since you passed

And now I know it’s time to close all of those doors
And try to think of ways to put a shining light on all
these thoughts… as I ramble on and lose my mind and
try to come to terms… with the fact that you are gone
and I strum on this guitar you gave me…

Grandfather sleep…. Rest in peace….
Grandfather sleep…. Rest in peace….
Now I’ll wear you on my sleeve….

Thank you for all you gave to us – our family may fight but we have trust
A bond cemented by your song – we will march forward with you gone
I think about time long ago – I think about the road and place we’d always go
I think about the family – I hope you left knowing how much you meant to me

I sit alone in a room with my guitar for company
Yes that one you gave me all those years ago that set
me free - I write a song about the good times and all
the memories - I bow my head as my hand comes
around to A on that guitar you gave me

Grandfather sleep…. Rest in peace….
Grandfather sleep…. Rest in peace….
Now I’ll wear you on my sleeve….
Track Name: 2am Serenade
She turned to him and said “What are you waiting for?”
He cracked a smile and said “a sign.”
The tensions hot and the music was playing so loud

Blue eyes with painted black - A devilish gaze into his soul
He took her hand and said “Let’s dance until the night is gone”
She shook her head and said “That’s not how the song was sung”

Open seas and open sails
No time to stop - hold the rails
Come the morning - What's said is done
No turning back - Hey!

They dropped another 10 in the jukebox
They danced - They laughed - They fell
He pulls her close and whispered into her ear

“Hey darl’n I know your story
She said “Do you know how it ends?”
He spun her around and kissed the sky - Time means nothing when you’re this high!

Open seas and open sails
No time to stop - hold the rails
Come the morning - What's said is done
No turning back - Hey!

WOAH - We’ll dance for hour and that’s ok!
WOAH - We’ll dance for hour and we don’t care!
Track Name: Sweet Sincere
It’s the moments just like this that I wish would never end
Drifting further out to the sea - what will we find
Oh those bright colored flashed in the sky - reflect through your eyes
Oh the sounds of the wave as they crash - sooth any soul

Sweet Sincere - Have you ever been afraid to dance alone
Sweet Sincere - Have you ever been afraid to wake alone
Not tonight

There are so many things that I failed to recognize
An angel lost her wings as she fell right through my arms
And my feet hurt hurt so much from dancing in the sand
Take my and and we’ll take a drive to a place without a name

Sweet Sincere - Have you ever been afraid to dance alone
Sweet Sincere - Have you ever been afraid to wake alone
Not tonight

It’s the moments just like this I’d cherish straight till the end
We’ll burn this candle at both ends and wonder when will it end

Sweet Sincere - Have you ever been afraid to dance alone
Sweet Sincere - Have you ever been afraid to wake alone
Not tonight
Track Name: Coming For You Anyway
Have some fun man, lighten up
No one’s coming for your guns
You know that it’s not a choice
Break their chains give them a voice

Assembling, dividing lines
Join us change with the times
Won’t try to comprehend
The rest of us forge ahead

Supremacy, poisonous thought
It’s hard to break from what you’re taught
Instead fight for equality
Race, creed, sexuality

We don’t care we’re coming for you anyways
We see so much need for change
We don’t care we’re coming for you anyways
We don’t care what you say

It’s so sad how you resist
I bet your dad talked too much with his fists
Different cause a different time
Such a backward state of mind

We don’t care we’re coming for you anyways
We see so much need for change
We don’t care we’re coming for you anyways
We don’t care what you say
Track Name: Memo #1
You’ve got that murder poison
And I got the kiss
Lipstick cobra potion
I got this
Oh - Let me count the ways
Six Hundred and two
Fire dancing devil ladies
I got this

whoah
whoah
Who wrote the words in between the lines
whoah
whoah
What does it say
I know everything about everyone at any time
I don't know who I am

You’ve got that murder shovel
And I got the pick
Lipstick cobra potion
I got this
Oh - Let me count the ways
Six Hundred and two
Fire dancing devil ladies
I got this

whoah
whoah
Who wrote the words in between the lines
whoah
whoah
What does it say
I know everything about everyone at any time
I don't know who I am
