lyrics

Empty searches
Fruitless strife
Giving way to
A wasted life
Hesitating to speak your mind
Instead you drawn on
Helpless lies

You call out
For someone to set you free
But everything you say sounds like
An afterthought to me
Filter through the noise
To hear you dying art
You did this to yourself and now
You're left to fall apart

Because apart from me
You don't know where you need to be
Scavenge up a starting point
And line the streets with apathy
Find a path to call your own
And follow 'till your feet have shown
A sign of something bigger than
The dark world we know

Your words fall short of showing
How your actions are flowing
Just please let someone help you
My hand is reaching out to

You call out
For someone to set you free
But everything you say sounds like
An afterthought to me
Filter through the noise
To hear you dying art
You did this to yourself and now
You're left to fall apart

You call my name
And pray for quick release
But evidence of your offense
Has brought you to your knees
Given one more chance
Where will you stand
Will you plead the fifth
Or will you take my hand

about

dot.darkness Texas

dot.darkness is pronounced dot-dot-darkness. This duo became a "thing" in Nashville when electronic wizard Josh Sheehy and rock ninja Colin Hemphill teamed up. Influenced by classic video games, guitars, 80's synthpop, modems, car alarms, gunshots, and paper shredders, they just make things up as they go along. No one really knows what it is, but sometimes it comes out sounding like music. ... more
