about

Apophenia New York, New York

"In a word, serene... With some interesting ballad-like lyrical content and catchy, textured guitar work for flavor. There are several distinct nuances of post-rock and even a bit of jazzy math rock infused inside the tracks... A refreshing sound when so many bands tack on the "experimental" and "progressive" descriptors only for them to not actually apply..."

Track Name: To The Gallows (our green mile)
Music by: Nadeem Ahmed
Lyrics by: Nadeem Ahmed

We've been walking our green mile
when you come from here they'll snicker
and put you down in the ground
and truth be told we don't care!

to the gallows
to the gallows (oh no)
to the gallows
to the gallows (oh no)

we've been walking our green mile
with a burden priced so high
we've been drawing our black lines
dare to cross it, I dare you to try!

to the gallows
to the gallows (oh no)
to the gallows
to the gallows (oh no)

We've been walking our green mile!
with a burden priced so high
We've been walking our green mile!
we'll be walking till we die
We've been walking our green mile!
with a burden priced so high
We've been walking our green mile!
keep on walking, walking till we die!

to the gallows
to the gallows (oh no)
to the gallows
to the gallows (oh no)
to the gallows
we can hear you screaming, but you can't get out!
to the gallows
to the gallows (oh no)
Track Name: Open Roads
I've always had a fascination with open roads
miles left to travel, but no where left to go
and if you find yourself beat and run out of town
do as they did years before
and head for h i g h e r g r o u n d
for your life is all there is in front of you
no lord looking down
no such thing as hallowed ground
and you ought to know by now
that you're on your own
with no where left to go
headed for a destination I don't know
this beating in my heart breathes life into this stone
30 miles past behind, so many more to go
(this is where I must belong)
(it's where i feel at home)
for your life is all there is in front of you
no lord looking down
no such thing as hallowed ground
and you ought to know by now
that you're on your own
with no where left to go
the air is so clear...
and the sky so black...
but so l o n e l y...
lonely...
no lord looking down
no such thing as hallowed ground
and you ought to know by now
that you're on your own
with no where left to go
Track Name: Meet Me In the Morning
And I'll take now
and I'll take it as my right
decisions to be made
and I don't know wrong or right
cuz oh, I am on a mission got a shimmer in my eye
just to let the fear take over
to finally feel alive
feel alive!

cuz I don't really know why
found myself walking up the street
and I don't even know how
cuz I don't even know whats left for me
so meet me in the morning
ride and get the hell out of this town
meet me in the morning
grab your things were bailing out!

and I'm leaving now
and I know that its my right
the rest of you I'll see you later
unless you follow us tonight
cuz oh, I am on a mission got a shimmer in my eye
just to let the fear take over
to finally feel alive
feel alive!

cuz I don't really know why
found myself walking up the street
and I don't even know how
cuz I don't even know whats left for me
so meet me in the morning
ride and get the hell out of this town
meet me in the morning
grab your things were bailing out

(should've thought of it)

cuz I don't really know why
found myself walking up the street
and I don't even know how
cuz I don't even know whats left for me
so meet me in the morning
ride and get the hell out of this town
meet me in the morning
grab your things were bailing out!
We should have thought of it by now!
We should have thought of it by now!!
We should have thought of it by now!!!
Track Name: Past Transmissions
Past Transmission
lost in the stars
proof of my love, long before this time
before my world faded away
for whatever the reason
before my love left me this way
for whatever the reason
and though i try to find
to find another way
I'm stuck on a line
drifting deep into space
with nothing to hold on...
my signal floats on
it's a long way down
but I've come a long way, come a long way
and there's no ground
for me to stand and hold your hand
once again
the feel of your lips pressed in a kiss
to turn my heart around
and though I try to find
to find another
I'm stuck on a line
drifting deep into space
with nothing to hold on...
hold on!
it's proof of my love long before
this time
it's proof of my love long before
this time
it's proof of my love long before
this time
Track Name: I'm Coming Home Soon
From way up here
the people look just like ants
bustling about
in winter coats and pants
a shiver ruffles my feathers
and i think, for a moment
just to wait for better weather
but then i don't...
because i know
i'm coming home soon
as i take flight, through snow and cold
over ocean ice
warmer weather is coming, i just know
a shiver ruffles my feathers
and i think, for a moment
just to wait for better weather
but then i don't...
because i know
i'm coming home soon
and I'll be in paradise...
and I'll be in paradise...
and I will be in paradise...
Track Name: Ready, Set
Ready, Set

Take your dynamite
roll it up set
pull it back and throw it over your head
and in my oversight
leaving you alive
feel me breathing down the back of your neck
it's an individual
situation for me to endure
not your problem, you say
mine and mine alone I know
do not try to fight
owing me your life
instead of owing me the money you bet
do not try to write
I'm 50 moves ahead
making money off the money you spent
it's an individual
situation for me to endure
not your problem, you say
mine and mine alone I know
it's an individual
situation for me to endure
not your problem, you say
mine and mine alone I know
and I know
come out of the red now
come out of the red now
come out of the red now
come out of the red now... seeing red
Track Name: The Begging Journalist
Lyrics by: Seamus Kerley

I don't know why I let this get to me
being cynical as I am
it's not right for me to get d e f e n s i v e
but I've ignored your stones before...
and no ones got the brains to know any better
Is it because I'm too tall? (too tall)
that we don't see eye to eye (or eye chest)
please tell is it just as hard to breathe? (just as hard to breathe)
or does it come naturally to you?
no ones got the brains
no ones got the brains to know any better
there's a better way
there's gotta be a better way
just to make know
to make you know through my eyes!
did you loose your ability??
you seemed fine before..
does it hurt as much as mine?
believe me I don't change on my own (on my own)

there's a better way
there's gotta be a better way
just to make know
to make you know through my eyes!
did you loose your ability??
you seemed fine before..
does it hurt as much as mine?
believe me cuz I don't change on my own (on my own)
believe me because I don't change
Track Name: Green Lines
Reaching up towards the sun
held down by everyone
you do what must be done
and cut your loss
two lives that are tethered and torn
one dies while the other is born
who knows, celebrate or to mourn
on this dreadful night
skin soft, hair so fine
steady beats of green lines
her life now given for mine
though not her time
two lives that are tethered and torn
one dies while the other is born
who knows celebrate or to mourn
on this dreadful night
two lives that are tethered and torn
one dies while the other is born
and I know that in time
what you gave will be realized...
Track Name: Mission Valley
Music by: Nadeem Ahmed
Lyrics by: Seamus Kerley

She had a place in Mission Valley
It was run down and dry
And though I traveled far
To make it work
It was too far for us to know
Where to go from here

She said leave
But I won't
Not until I've had my time
Breathe...
But I won't
Without you there is no life
Sing...
But I won't
Unless my words can make you cry
But I wont
And a new sun is on the rise...

In a city on the west side
The most beautiful I've seen in my life
Doing 90 down the 405
But there is no speed to get me there to stop you tonight

She said leave
But I won't
Not until I've had my time
Breathe...
But I won't
Without you there is no life
Sing...
But I won't
Unless my words can make you cry
But I wont
And a new sun is on the rise...

I rolled up
And I saw you stepping out your door
I let it show
That I've seen that look before
Though I fought to hold in
When you looked me in the eyes that night
It was not the same

She said leave
But I won't
Not until I've had my time
Breathe...
But I won't
Without you there is no life
Sing...
But I won't
Unless my words can make you cry
But I wont
And a new sun is on the rise...
Track Name: Serenity
Open space in front of me
a tale that I'm dying to leave behind
all I've got is my crew
Serenity looks out for me
I do my best to keep her up and flying
any job you need we do (we do)
breathe in this free air
no, no don't think about it
you're on borrowed time
feeling this free life
no, no don't think about it
you're on borrowed time
I find myself in broken parts
with killers that I never thought I'd find
on this side of the road
I have little to offer you
I'm not a man of many things
but I am a man of my word
of my word...
breathe in this free air
no, no don't think about it
you're on borrowed time
feeling this free life
no, no don't think about it
you're on borrowed time
breathe in this free air
no, no don't think about it
you're on borrowed time
feeling this free life
no, no don't think about it
you're on borrowed time
