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.

about

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

Track Name: Electric Chair (Radio Edit)
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
Track Name: Speak to Me
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
Track Name: Slow Sad and Long
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
Track Name: Fuck A Horse
Fuck a horse
Fuck a horse
Everybody's fucking a horse
Fuck a horse
Fuck a horse
Legally they can't divorce
Track Name: Empty Nest
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
Track Name: Electric Chair (Album Edit)
So we gave our lives up to god when we were young
