Edison McBain I only had found about these guys a few months before The Afterimage released their first studio album and boy, I was hooked instantly. This first studio release from EFEB is incredibly powerful and insane, it's a strong release and I have found it hard to find a song I dislike, on top of the hundreds of times I have listened to this album. Definitely worth the buy if you like the scene of this music or just love music in general. Favorite track: Two If By Sea.

Track Name: Galleries
Through the sun
Through the coals and flame
Her surface is charred
Those eyes have faded
Where did it all go wrong?
Will we revive ourselves
But she's come back scorn
That heart has turned to ice

Through the sun
Through the coals and flame
Her surface is charred
Those eyes have faded
Where did it all go wrong?
Will we revive ourselves
But she's come back scorn
That heart has turned to ice

Pull the sea apart
Hopefully you can

The depths from which I've climbed
Serve to only bury you

The sun reflects my eyes

Oh, 'cause the damage is done

I can't recall
Why the fuck are we buried?
Make me feel again 'cause I've grown so numb
Make me remember

Pull the sea apart
Hopefully you can
Just to see us off to the end

Through the sun
Through the coals and flame
Her surface is charred
Those eyes have faded
Where did it all go wrong?
Will we revive ourselves
But she's come back scorn
That heart has turned to ice

With these eyes I see you
With these lungs I struggle to breathe
It pulls me down and leads me under
And I hope I'm alive

Stone graves don't float at sea
As I beg to hold on
[As I beg to hold on]
It leads me under
Stone graves
Lead me home
As I try to breathe in
[As I try to breathe in]
It leads me under

Stone graves don't float at sea
As I beg to hold on
[As I beg to hold on]
It leads me under
Stone graves
Lead me home
As I try to breathe in
[As I try to breathe in]
It leads me under
Track Name: Seventeen Hundred
I thought I thought this through before the bad had turned
Had turned to worse
Every single second word
You warned me to believe you
The snakes thread your hair like cancer to my heart
This cannot be any more of an honest confession

I'm done feeling insane
My stomach is tied up
'cause your words are stone
Was there purpose?
This wreckage is too far from land
Into the deep end until your blood turns to sand
Until your blood turns to sand
Your blood turns to sand

In seventeen hundred knots my stomach is tied
[OH OH OH]
My stomach is tied
Seventeen hundred knots below the speed of light
[OH OH OH]
I can't even believe these bricks
These ties

We'll give us a second go in the stomach of a shattered space
No, I can't bear the thought
Could it be too late?
...of the thought that you would leave
We were supposed to be
We were supposed to be
I can't bear the thought
That you were the bricks and ties sinking beneath my feet

Seventeen hundred knots my stomach is tied
[OH OH OH]
My stomach is tied
Seventeen hundred knots below the speed of light
[OH OH OH]
I can't even believe the space you left here

I'm done feeling insane
My stomach is tied up
'cause your words are stone
Was there purpose?
This wreckage is too far from land
Into the deep end until your blood turns to sand
Track Name: The Valley
Yeah,
Roll in the golden brigade
And shake the unsettled dirt
Will you rest easy soaring down with the falling train?
Yeah,
The canyons
Swallow us like coffins

There
[Breathe the air in]
There's no way we'd know
[All in with me]
To measure the harm
[Like a train possessed]
Where I was taken

Yeah
This cliff looks steep
We're all flooding the windows
Take this in
Take this in on the death hymn

This vessel holds me in still with the air

Is this body possessed?
Empty?
Reset the tracks
And lead me to safety
[Fear showing its teeth]
They tried to hold me to the hearts of racing ghosts
A whisper and lash
You can find me here

The depths are calling
Under the wreckages
I meant to leave for her to find me
But not to leave her alone
This vessel holds me
In still with the air
Breathing it in alone

A prayer for the clouds
The shrapnel unfolds
Returning like blades

We will soon be the haunted
Will I soon be one of the dead?

Oh, the depths are calling

Because I can't recall a name for transparency
With all the serpents at my knees
Growing restless
God damnit give me a sign
Stifled, I find, I wish
Give me a sign

The valley takes me under the ground

Is this body possessed?
Empty?
Reset the tracks
And lead me to safety
They tried to hold me to the hearts of racing ghosts
A whisper and lash
You can always find me here
Track Name: Lifeblood
We can't undo this
Undo the hurt and you won't have to leave us behind
Ascend and leave us behind
If I could hang the rope or scythe and warm your frozen hands
Distress, I've never felt this distress

Every minute is not alright
It was only a matter of hours
Now i've come to terms
Everything we live leads up to 'right now'

A march beats the slowest song
- the lowest point that I've ever known

The clock bows down
Where it forever rests
3:00 am was the worst news ever

These memories tread their own course
So breathe when I breathe
I want your strength not to waver

I'll erase the future
Fast forward through it?
I'll just erase the future

I see now this summer had it out for all of us

Time has it out for all of us
Time has it out for all of us

It's beyond our sight

Behind the view, growing louder
Prairie grass, distant trees
Let's just escape under the radar

Let's just escape under the radar

These memories:
Reckless, treading reckless
If I could hang the rope or scythe and warm your frozen hands
Distress, I've never felt this distress
Every minute is not alright

Every minute

These memories tread their own course
For the fence, we're swinging hard
And when I breathe...
I want your strength not to waver

These memories tread their own course
For the fence, we're swinging hard
And when I breathe...
I want your strength not to waver
Track Name: Between The Continents
As I lay here bound in water
Rushing through the tide
Breathing in, fire on my lungs
The waves can lift me through
Pressing on my veins
I never want to feel this again
Now I can see the sky,
Clear as daylight

All we could have been
The water's filled the room by now
All thanks to us

Keep it steady...

The wings we wear tonight
It's much too late
[water rushing through the window, chasing outward through the door]
The truth is harsh
[I've seen this all before]
Consumes us like flames

Ocean floor will be our end
And you will see it through
And all this will be...

Think I can make it out?
A thought i know defines more than a few
[WHOA-OH-OH]
Hold your breathe and wait for the best in you

Ocean floor will be our end
And you will see it through
And all this will be
Our undoing
And you will see it through
And all this will be
All this will be...

The wings we wear tonight
It's much too late
[Everything we had, no thanks to you]
The truth is harsh
[We've seen this all before]
Consumes us like flames

Think I can make it out?
A thought I know defines more than a few
[WHOA-OH-OH]
Hold your breathe and wait for the best in you

We are like contintents apart
Drifting abyss, safe from the rest
Can I even survive?
You are holding onto something that you think is right
I am just holding my breath
Track Name: Engravings
Well I'll tell them the real ending
My words spoken in tongues
Holding out
My back's in the air breathing clorine

It's all based on trust
But at this rate there is nothing left, nothing left
The aura around her head
Gets out shined by the darkness she carries with her
Oh, it's so clear
Reaching out for someone to help you
My words can't make it through
Like I'm choking on air
Breathing chlorine

I always knew there was something more behind the words she said
Because of those arms
[Because she reaches out to me]
Or because the end
[We're marked forever, forever engraved]
The blue in her hair matched the sorrow in her eyes
I'm holding on tight
Still you're floating away

Rough edges of the grip and hammer

Is there no one who could save me?
Is there no one who could save me?
I knew you'd lay me down in my grave

It's all based on trust
It's all based on..

Yeah, this's the spark, holding on out
[HEY HEY]
Yeah, just the silence, hold me on it
[HEY HEY]
Yeah, because I waited for it
Like a souvenir of arrows fired from the chamber
My lungs breathe out
I'll be waiting in this heavy silence

I always knew there was something more behind the words she said
I always knew there was something more behind the words she said

I always knew there was something more behind the words she said
Because of those arms
[Because she reaches out to me]
Or because the end
[We're marked forever, forever engraved]
The blue in her hair matched the sorrow in her eyes
I'm holding on tight
Still you're floating away

We sure..
Always..
Wore our wounds and aimed with covered eyes
Track Name: Two If By Sea
Sailed into the uncharted sea
Submerged into the depths
No plan on rising
I've seen this seabed before
It's burned my head
Staying hopeful that you'd be the one that would take me there

Nothing to pull me under
Not for my own miscalculations
And now we're cast away
Just the tides that pull me
The tides that pull me

Sailed into the uncharted sea
Submerged into the depths
No plan on rising
The floor's breaking in with every word that hurt me
Cold waiting for our blood to boil and take our bodies

As we're drowning in misconception
Immersed in self inflicted apathy
I can't sail under conditions
Can't sail under these conditions

A light shines off the cliffs we fell from
What is this sinking feeling?
My honest eyes, travesty
All I see is how we were
Where were you when the lights came on?

One if by land // Two if by sea
One if I stand // Two if I flee
One if I mend // Two if I plea
Pull me under // Set me free

Stone graves
Don't float at sea
As I beg to hold on
Pull me under...
