The One 04:45
Gold and silver now won't buy you another moment on the day you will die Pray grumble mumble kneel and cry but not one prophet lives in the sky Roll and tumble crumple keel and lie, all the great empires rot from inside Need me, bleed me, kick me nothing down, pile guile and post like a hawk Wallow shallow and baby don't you frown, I wanna choke your pride till it don't make no sound... All your shadows cast ambiguous light and all your seeds they feed on infinite want When a million is worth less than one, time is ripe to make one less than none No I never said you could be the one to take what's mine to hold in your hand and for building all your castles on sacred ground, may all your failures shine in your night Shine on and on and on Now cut and bleed shine on If might is right and hope hangs light then you're not seeing the fight to come

I'm gonna stone the sky for I don't really care for the way that it shines and I got some habits so vicious they don't like for me not to do as they wish it I got no friends in gods, only seen em' around on the lips of their hosts and I got a strong suspicion, our worlds all spin of their own volition I got a mountain of wishes but not a single one would include your permission I got a small admission, I never much cared for blind superstition On logic's door I like to pick bone and hurdling stones to watch the giants fall I won't be sold truth by those that know no science for I love to know truth that has no slant.. I hold the keys to my kingdom, my walls will crumble and I will fade to oblivion and I need no virgins or heavens to find my love within nature's machinery On logic's door I like to pick bone and hurdling stones to watch the giants fall I won't be sold truth by those that know no science for I love to know truth that has no slant.. I won't be sold truth by those that know no science I won't be sold truth by those that know and would lie

I walk a thousand miles to get away from you A hundred million paces to anywhere but you I walk a thousand miles to get away from you You call and beg me to but I know how you do I walk a thousand miles to get away from you If all the marrow in this being could heal a goddamn thing Then all the angels on a pin could slay your misery I walk a thousand miles to get away from you The heart of a bullet cannot see the outcome of Its deed So I'll eat lightning to drink my tears and on a sword I'll sleep Hey now, a castle ain't a home And I'll roam when I have been dethroned So I'll go where talking don't belong When I sow, I'd rather be alone I walk a thousand miles to get away from you A pack attack of hungry wolves and muddy waters true Hey now, a castle ain't a home And I'll roam when I have been dethroned So I'll go where talking don't belong When I sow, I'd rather be alone

I got wolves in my head ya'll my baby got gold in her pants I got waves in my brain now since Molly has been asking to dance My view from inside it looks wide and all of my cells are on fire Mercury oceans a flow and I got to let this lava go I got the will of the oceans, my baby can swallow the tides I'll pour rivers of silk for baby to dive right inside My view from this side it looks right and all of my brain is on fire Mercury oceans a flow and I got to let this lava go I travel your mountains and valleys by finger to find all your stars Looking to dip in your honey but first I'll eat all the pie My view from on high it looks right and all of my heart is on fire Mercury oceans a flow and I got to let this lava go I crave no gold more than your throne I know no song sweet as your moan I got the doors to your temple and swallowing snakes is divine Spreading the wings of an angel will turn your wine into time The view in my eye it looks right and all of my soul is on fire Mercury oceans a flow and I got to let this lava go I know no home better than soul I know no hold sweeter than flow I crave no gold more than your throne I know no song sweet as your moan

Time 04:56
The years go by so fast the shadows of all I know have gone The shadow of my soul has passed I don' know, I don't know at all Fractions carved in stone Actions filled with lore Subtle ways of making me hold on to a house of bone My days go by so slow Im standing with my feet on your spine and atoms with my fingers entwine I don' know, I don't know at all Fractions carved in stone Actions filled with lore Subtle ways of making me hold on to a house of bone

I Don't Mind 05:30
If you bring me sorrow If ends tomorrow If you pull the strings that make my life fall apart You know I don't mind If you devour my worth dear while you drink my last tear If your love is hollow while mine comes from the heart You know I don't mind No I don't mind when you break me All of these pieces never fit quite right No I don't mind when you make me pay for your attention and your selfish time And everything has a place, dear, there's no need for you to tear it apart and although you don't know me I know you and you make me...high You know I know It's all a waste but when Im high with you I just don't care

Arrows 04:43
All the seeds you weened are bleeding and not a one could flour, jump the skip upon your record and find a groove to ride ride ride ride, fly arrow fly Leave the nest and head out west now don't you look behind, know that fortune feeds on the corpses of those who died at trying try try try, fly arrow fly, try try try Once your fields were so fragrant and now they've all gone sour, heard your will has been unfaithful and all your wants devoured sour sour sour, fly arrow fly, scour scour scour Now go ahead and fall apart Bleed on out and feed the soil May the flowers of your deed Turn your arrows into destiny If you love it you will loose it but that's why it's got heart, if you never learn to earn it you won't know why you want it want want want, fly arrow fly As you suffocate from breathing amputate your heart, don't you go and drown from dreaming and reaching for no stars star star star, fly arrow fly, star star star Go ahead and amputate your heart Now go ahead and fall apart bleed on out and feed the soil May the flowers of your deed Lead your arrows into destiny

Shine little starlight shine, eat all your worries and leave them behind Crushing gravity crush, hold it all down and try not to crack Tell me dying star, was it Orion that cut you too far? And hum little black hole hum, swallow your allies and steal the sun A hum, a hum and all you are you swallow Waning moons wail, egos cracked and faces pale Do you dream tonight for Virgo to lay you and bleed on your tongue? So run now satellite run or bow to your master and die by his hand And hum little black hole hum, be all there is, will be or there was A hum a hum and all you are you swallow

about

It takes effort to make things and The Bad Light is certainly no exception, since the release of Onward Downward the line up has changed multiple times, many drummers later I found Dana through a Craigslist add and we clicked right away, we worked our asses off getting these songs worked out and in October of 2014 we took them into the studio and we took our time...really took our time, going in once a month and getting as much done as we could afford it took us until July of 2015 to have this mixed and ready for mastering, we think it was worth it, we hope you think so too. The biggest change comes from having Emily singing along full time, to me it sounds so sweet and natural like it was born there and we built a castle around it, Its a gamble to bring in a new singer, Im sure some won't like it and I can only hope that she will be down for whatever lifetime the band has, but if not, then it will be something else and in the two years it took to bring this album to fruition, this was my biggest realization, The Bad Light is a collection of ideas at a moment in time and TEMPLES is us now.
