So we gave our lives up to god when we were young And he threw them back like fish that were too small So we never knew what it was like to feel called So we hung our heads and decided "This is life from now on..." Yes I know the world don't care If I ever come back from there I built my own electric chair And now it's time to sit for just a while So I found the body, found the blood, and found out what they mean I found there's not a chance in hell for a sinning man like me So I did my best to justify and I did my best to find Some holy voice inside my head and trust it as my guide Yes I know the world don't care If I ever come back from there I built my own electric chair And now it's time to sit for just a while So we gave our lives up to god when we were young And he threw them back like fish that were too small

Speak to Me 04:05
I spoke these lines and then Called your name again I swear you answered once Or did I just pretend? To hear some kind of voice To feel like I could be forgiven I don't want to waste my life Just wandering the empty depths Obsessing over pretty words To someday be my epitaph I acknowledge and accept The bitter-sweetest thing is Every mark I bleed to leave Will be erased with time To take in my next breath Or drink myself to death? Surrendering to outrageous fortune And might I ask for what? The slings and arrows For what dreams might be left So speak to me and I'll believe again I'll take back all the stupid things I said I just wanna feel the way I felt When I was sure that there was someone in control

I tried to fill the hole with words But there could never be enough Enough to keep me hanging on Enough to keep me hanging on I could never hold the keys I could never get it right It's one thing to say you believe Another to know what that means She said darling it is not the same To be a fool who is in love As it is to be caught in the rain And pick the first umbrella up

Fuck A Horse 00:19
Fuck a horse Fuck a horse Everybody's fucking a horse Fuck a horse Fuck a horse Legally they can't divorce

Empty Nest 03:26
I wasted 25 years adrift on the ocean seeking some kind of savior And when I finally found her she vanquished my monsters And built a home on my shoulder All I miss are my mother's arms A pot on the stove and Garage full of cars All I miss are my mother's arms It's just the way it is I know So we dance like Siamese twins Both joined at the hip And singing song for the sailors And the threw us tarnished old quarters That we feed to the meters So we can stay here forever

about

This is the Supplimental release to Artifacts. It contains the songs we would prefer for radio promotion, including an edited version of one that removes the extended intro. It also contains two additional songs from the recording sessions for Artifacts that were not used on the album, and some fun, NSFW, studio banter.

The Singular Akron, Ohio

The Singular is a band that holds high the value of music as an experience and strives to make a good one for anyone who cares to listen. As a modest four piece rock band they produce a sound that can be described as cavernous and overwhelming. They triumph the art of storytelling through song, and always invite their audience along with them on a musical journey. ... more
