jamie-aka-fraser I just saw Chant in concert last night and was blown away! THESE GUYS FUCKING ROCKED THE HOUSE!!! I really hope they come back and play another show in Seattle sometime soon.

This is, in my opinion, their best album so far. Favorite track: All the Same.

Track Name: Brave New Apocalypse
I know I could not see
All the things so wrong with me
Every ending needs a start
So say goodbye to who we are
Never see my face again
You’ll never have to comprehend
The vow that slipped away and rang forever from your lips
A supernova tragic end and a brave new apocalypse

New days are dangerous
New love, uncertain trust
Reinvention of your life
Erase me to stay alive
Never mind our history
Or who we used to be
Embrace the end and risk again catastrophic emptiness
It’s the price we have to pay for a Brave New Apocalypse
Brave New Apocalypse

Everything’s just like they said
Our world’s come to an end
And the moon drips red with blood
Just like they said it would
It’s our last trip around the sun
They need it like a drug
But prophecies they come and go
So question everything you know
And then forget me as I fade
Into our loss our final days
Two sides of love collide – inescapable eclipse
I hope and pray we all survive our Brave New Apocalypse
Brave New Apocalypse
Brave New Apocalypse
Brave New Apocalypse
Track Name: Cycles
Cycles are always turning
Nations are always churning
Churches are always burning through their congregation’s eyes

The planet is always spinning
The enemy is always winning
The truth is always blending with another person’s lies

Is right and wrong confusing?
Is the space between too wide?
Well then color the grey with blood until the enemy’s on our side

End of your generation
End of your sovereign nation
End of your congregation and the wars you brought to life

It’s the start of something new
The start of me and you
The start of all that’s true in another story line

Is right and wrong confusing?
Is the space between too wide?
Well then color the grey with blood until the enemy’s on our side
Track Name: Manifesto
Crass - Hard lined - Refined…
Got to tell my version of his-story
Take you down - I’m not going alone
I have to save your soul – along with everything

I know I’m not the first and I won’t be the last
But you can only take so much
In this world that promises you everything
I’ll still go unnoticed unless I make a scene

It’s just got to be loud so the whole world knows
They only pay attention to something extreme
Be unique – so your story gets told
And you’ll become a headline just like me!

I’ve got my salvation and my secret weapon
I’ve got my end of the world
I’ll make a prophecy and take you all with me
I’ve got my end of the world

And I’ll do it too
Make you all see
Make you all feel
What’s inside of me
And when I’m gone – you will believe
In the media’s version of my identity

Turn the dial and I’ll be there
In your memory and in your prayers
All this attention for a guy like me
Instantaneous celebrity

I’ve got my salvation and my secret weapon
I’ve got my end of the world
I’ll make a prophecy and take you all with me
I’ve got my end of the world
Track Name: Repeat Repeat
I just met you
Can't stop thinking
Of all we could be - its so new
Experience
Relive the danger
There's still more we could do

This is how it could be - this is how it should be
Repeat Repeat
This is how it could be - this is how it should be
Repeat Repeat

I can feel you
Can't stop wanting
To survive what we lived through
Another version
Of perfection
A vivisection of the truth

This is how it could be - this is how it should be
Repeat Repeat
This is how it could be - this is how it should be
Repeat Repeat

I write it on the wall
Carve it in my skin
Got to remember all of this
Or repeat the same again

I write it on the wall
Carve it in my skin
Got to remember all of this somehow
Or repeat the same again

The same again… The same again...
Track Name: Universal
Mission to perceive that universal need – to be right – to be loved – Each generation feeds on the ones who came before them - on the fears that divide them:
“If you don’t believe in my God than you don’t believe in me”

Stripped down to the core of what we know – the fear of death and the unknown
Taken in by the promise that you’ll survive
Apocalypse to the rescue – counter cult predictions on the menu – you say the end is near and when it’s here – I'll be left behind

But, maybe they are leaving without you,
Maybe they are leaving without you,
Maybe they are leaving without you, maybe, just maybe…

Your God is here forever
But he keeps saying the same damn thing
It’s just you and I together
At the end of everything

Your ego comes down from the sky to do your will – to make you right and go in for the kill
Now's the time, before I die, to prove me wrong
Faith crushed by the modern hand – self centered wars with religious brands
And you can’t stop now ‘cause they might find out that you were lying all along…

So maybe they are leaving without you,
Maybe they are leaving without you,
Maybe they are leaving without you, maybe, just maybe…

Your God is here forever
But he keeps saying the same damn thing
You and I together
At the end of everything

I’m not preaching – I’m just observing – just a witness to who you’re serving

Your God is here forever
But he keeps saying the same damn thing
You and I together
At the end of everything

Each generation’s counting
On the message that you bring
That we all die together
At the end of everything
Track Name: Adoration
Cold colored words of isolation
As you spread your wings of adoration
So full of love it hurts
So full of hate it works
Arm your soul to the teeth as you claw
And wrap those wings around me
In adoration
It’s beautiful – you’ll see

Hand print on the wall
Reminding me of when we lost it all
Forever changed - forever attached
To all the words that you can’t take back
Like a Siren, sickly sweet
All your screams have stayed with me
And they’re still ringing in my ears because
Some words never leave

For You - this adoration
There’s nothing left of me to tear apart
It’s all for you – this adoration
Taking my last breath while I’m in your arms
It’s beautiful – you’ll see

Love Me
Track Name: Dead Muse
My muse has gone and left me for dead
I’d be better off with a hole in my head
But she went for the heart and now it’s much too late
To keep my feet on the ground and my head on straight

A loss for words and the blank page cuts right through
There’s no meaning to my life if I can’t share this pain with you

I try to get it all out – again and again
But nothing comes – there’s no sign of the end
There are no new words that could ever come and rescue me now

It’s just you in my head
My muse is gone - my muse is dead

Where are you when I need your nails in me?
Digging myself deeper so I can crawl beneath your feet

I try to find the words – try to make sense
Out of all we sold to buy our innocence
It’s only Sin that seems to find her way back to me

It’s just you in my head
My muse is gone - my muse is dead

My muse has gone and left me for dead
I’d be better off with a hole in my head
But she went for the heart and now it’s much too late
To keep my feet on the ground and my head on straight
Track Name: Bring Me the Head of the Music Critic
On the shelf
For all to see
For you to judge
If I succeed
Crucify
Out of spite
Or just ignore
To prove you’re right
I’m meant to be
Objectified
Or made into
The wolf who cried
But I know something
You can’t see
I only care
What’s inside of me
You’ll lose it all
And become aware
And realize
That I don’t care
What you say
Or what you write
Or what you hate
Or what you like
You’re left behind
There’s only doubt
With no way home
And no way out
On the shelf
For all to see
For all to judge
For all to reap

On the shelf
There’s no one else
Left alone
To face myself
For all I’ve done
And criticized
Was all in vain
A waste of time
For now I see
What’s left of me
Is nothing more
Than empty dreams
On the shelf
There’s no one else
Left alone
To face myself
Track Name: All the Same
Free Salvation all around me
Then a savior swoops in to show me the way
But before I choose I must confess that your preaching seems to be the only product you sell right now

You don’t believe me?
Well I’ve got something to say
You can’t deceive me
I never believed you anyway

It’s all the same
Someone else’s belief
You can lose yourself
Seeking Salvation

Wake up to find that your one true meaning is a narrow road leading to a lifetime away
As a third eye opens to reveal the lie – some flee to move on, others to ignore their pain

You don’t believe me?
Well I’ve got nothing to prove
You can’t defeat me
The most dangerous ones have nothing to lose

It’s all the same
Someone else’s belief
Maybe someone else
Needs their conscience cleaned
It’s all the same
Someone else’s belief
You can lose your soul
Preaching Salvation

Can you raise your hands and shout Amen?

It’s all the same
Someone else’s belief
Maybe someone else
Needs their conscience cleaned
It’s all the same
Someone else’s belief
If I could lose my soul
Seeking Salvation
Track Name: Create to Destroy
They say the end of days are upon us
And so now here we are
How can I embrace the ending ? We’ve come so very far

Yet we remain - disconnected – hearts split right in two
I can’t remember how it felt - to ever be loved by you

Apocalyptic nation
It’ll tear us all apart
Wait for it Wait for it
The ending is a new start
Create to Destroy
Destroy to create
Build us up - tear us down –(pause) make us separate

Create to Destroy

And the world is burning down
All around you
But you still stand tall
Reach inside
Find your voice
Find your love
Fuck it all
Track Name: Song I Never Wanted
I had to lose it all so I could see the light
Now I sing a song I’d never want to write
We lived a lifetime of love – or so the story goes
What you think of me now I’ll never really know

Leave it all behind
Trust the vain can lead the blind
Trust the blind can learn to see
More than you – better than me

Empty houses tell a story if you look in every room
Up the stairs and down the hallway – the quiet steals the view
Behind the last door for a moment I could see into
And there sat all I ever wanted - but it means nothing without you

We leave it all behind
Trust the vain can lead the blind
Trust the blind can learn to see
More than you and better than me
More than you and better than me

Love was never going to be enough if I wasn’t what you need
And you deserve much more - more than I could ever be
Don’t let the last thing left after everything you do
Be a book full of dreams that we couldn’t make come true

So leave me far behind
Trust the deaf can lead the blind
Trust the blind can learn to see
More than you and better than me

So leave me far behind
Trust the deaf can lead the blind
Trust the blind can learn to see
More than you and better than me
More than you and better than me
More than you and better than me
