Colin Richards Love this because it covers a lot of very specific genres that I adore. Like Getting and itch scratched and a back massage at the same time Favorite track: Stranger.

Michael Best new band 2018 for me. Some of the most original and best post-metal I've heard in a long while. Absolutely love the contrast between the brutal riffing and the dream-pop-ish vocals. Favorite track: Chemical Joy.

Andy Bass Loving these three tracks so far. Sounds like a heavier version of Constants w/ that flavor of Junius (hmmmm, I wonder why). Can't wait for the rest of the album to be delivered and to see where SOM goes moving forward. Favorite track: Black Out The Sky.

Track Name: Prayers
PRAYERS

why can’t i recognize the words that i hear you pray to him?

if you’re already an angel you can touch the sky
living in your own hell
you can burn alive

why can’t i recognize the words that i hear you pray to him?
i taste it on your skin
i sense the greatest sin

your faith is so unfaithful
pray and cry
a life you made so painful
no more prayers tonight

why can’t i recognize the words that i hear you pray to him?
i taste it on your skin
i sense the greatest sin

i can’t seem to clarify the thoughts in which my words are clouded in
the truth's been spread so thin
i sense the greatest sin
Track Name: Chemical Joy
CHEMICAL JOY

chemical joy swimming in my head
a moment before we’re dead again

spirits give the spirits meaning
and then it’s buried with the dead again

have you already given up your chance to fight?
the reign begins and ends on this sacrifice

if it was your last chance to breath
would you still call it suffering?

i’m not afraid to find out what i’ve left behind
i’m half connected now

a full disconnect
a complete collapse
i'm underneath it again

wasted youth that i staggered through
maybe i always knew all these complicated truths
Track Name: Open Wounds
OPEN WOUNDS

I tried to run away
but i got lost again

you said you’d never lie again
and now you pretend that it’s all in my head

you lied again

you can’t call me up looking for details
and i would never show up looking for a meaning
but you still get to do everything you want it kills me
so i got lost again

you said you’d never lie again
and now you pretend that it’s all in my head

so i’m left here with all your bloodshed
and i’m trying to mend
all the open wounds that you've left me

pick up the pieces of whats left
Track Name: Black Out The Sky
BLACK OUT THE SKY

talking in circles
still obsessed with the obvious
a lifelong rehearsal
i’m unprepared and overdressed

i will black out the sky
i’ll ruin the night
but i am i absolved

still smiling, still nodding
pretending to be impressed
faded eyes and memories
always entertained
but still depressed

i will black out the sky
i’ll ruin the night
but i am i absolved

you will be scorched by this fire
tonight in this pyre
and I'll be absolved
Track Name: Ten Years
TEN YEARS


can i go home?
or will i always be unwelcome
was I wrong
to walk away and ignore the outcome?

your words mean so much more now
than they did ten years ago
and i still know nothing about you

can i move on?
i’m at the door at the mat says welcome
i’m so withdrawn
just standing still waiting for a solution

i’ll never be alone again
i’ll never be afraid again
Track Name: Starless Sky
STARLESS SKY

It’s over
the imaginary
still caught up in the solitary

confined to what you left behind
and whatever i have left to try

now you tell me the costs of my actions
staring at a starless sky, i can’t seem to justify my ends

we finally lost control
but our bodies left us long ago

now you tell me the costs of my actions
staring at a starless sky, i can’t seem to justify my ends
as i continue to pay the price of the man who feels like he fell to the earth
staring at a starless sky, i can’t seem to justify my ends

who am i now
what was i then
as time unwinds
i’m lost again
Track Name: Stranger
STRANGER

I’ve fallen to the earth
and I’m drowning
it’s already over before the beginning

but I’ll follow until the end
drowning in the waves
it’s already your version, and it’s your version that kills me

you look like a stranger
wearing a disguise
hiding in plain sight
i wish i was more surprised
Track Name: Aerosols
AEROSOLS

now we live life our own way
or that’s what we tell ourselves to get through the day
you can see it on my face
eroded and disgraced

forsaken i am
rags and aerosols to get me through the day
forsaken i am
rags and aerosols

now i am so flagrant
my own inability has brought this on you
i am so flagrant
with my own life
