i heard the call since i was young all this can be yours little pup filled me with dread even then i knew that our blood just trickles up cradle to grave you got the fucking crave nothing’s gonna save you now they run you high and low strip mine your loving soul it’s all you know they program in image spiritual violence and it never stops not for a day but when that bullshit’s coming down from someone that i love i gotta get myself away to somewhere i feel safe cradle to grave i’m counting down the days they try to make us doubt we’re one they steal our youth away we build for better days that never ever come cradle to grave throw that bullshit away we got to be the ones to save us now i taught myself to fight someone show me how to live right now

Open Arms 03:55
how did we get here? inside the city gate locked in the highest tower building something they can’t take we made a great big flame we sang the old old songs chanting down the pain with open arms i have no defense that is a defense i killed off all my pride & i feel clean inside but there’s something in you that isn’t you all those colors make it hard to see deeper than the void & darker than the sea they say everything is okay they say everything is just fine but we’re locked away in boxes of our own design they pull on all our strings & say it’s all good but i can’t look away like i should they say everything is okay they say everything is just fine but they’re building castle walls for fools like us to climb & when they try to break us make us fall in line i will lay out my love like pearls

Choose Again 04:03
does anyone have a light? ‘cause i’m trying hard to see i know when i’m done with my past but when is it done with me? coming down from the clouds silent machine memory but if we can’t forget how can we be free? always there station choose again station what happens when we die? i don’t know but i think they know some say we go up to the sky some say way down low i think our thoughts scatter ones who love hold the flame our actions live in antimatter the cycle starts again

The Path 03:40
strike me down right now but i won’t feel a thing cut me down right now those words don’t even sting ‘cause there is no choice no boxed life made to order there is no crawling back only falling forward there is no choice there is no choice the path is long the path is all

Holy Morning 04:25
in love love you but you said we’re through through everything each and every year we traced crosses in the sky right before taking flight my dear dear night please stay a little longer where we go tomorrow soft sighs will make us stronger & now stray light catches on your neck and i’ll remember this moment 'til my dying breath your eyes are bright now bright light spills from the window to the corner of our bed this is my favorite time to see you darling before your layers come on like dew & down at our roots something’s burning blue this is forever we know it whatever we say but right now you don’t have a light to burn down your old ways now you’re smoking and you’re staring and you’re wearing worn out things you get up and leave the bed on painted wings

about

Few albums have been as eagerly awaited as Drumcorps' second album. Coming out nine years after “Grist” (Ad Noiseam adn70, 2006), “Falling Forward” looks to the future while staying true to the project's heavy guitar music roots. Dense riffs, vocals, melody, guest musicians and a diverse array of modern electronics combine with concise songwriting to form a complete work of integrity. The result is powerful, cohesive, and tender: a class of its own which keeps all the elements which made “Grist” a success and develops them further, confirming Drumcorps' position as not only a perfectionist, but also an innovator.

This album was originally available from the Ad Noiseam store, and is now available here.
