A story without a name. a desert journey that we became.
Another test of our power overcoming on a black day.
Appalling how they're running for the honor like a campaign.
To be the leaders of a Phony dead scene in a magazine.
I always figured there was something more.

Gone, so many friends and lovers
So far, nothing to show in turn

They'll take it all back, all those empty words.
I'll show the dregs where all their slander has led.
If it takes my whole life, for all the tears that i have shed they'll take it back, I'm making a pact.
They'll take it back, I'm making a promise.
I'm eager to the task, exposing all who wear a mask.

It must be done.

The storm yet to come binds us as one. through it all, lonliness and adversity, failure and injustices only guide us on our way.
So pry, you won't be finding a faker, nor will an opportune moment arise.

Gone, so many friends and lovers
So far, nothing to show in turn

Gone, so many friends and lovers
So far, nothing to show in turn

    General CommentI think this song is about war, that's what the lyrics point to. I could be wrong, this is only the first of their songs I've heard. Awesome though.

    General CommentWhat's even more amazing is that these guys are from L.A. The land of lousy RnR revival bands, Ghastly screamo, and a million Steve Vai wannabes.

    General CommentB12 it's another guy, the orignal singer got kicked out before this album and Nathan is the replacement.
    The song it self is about the storm we all go through in life, struggles and what not. Vela was the name of the sail on the argos ship. Nathan wrote it to describe the journey the band was going to set off on after recording the album (they have been on tour since august 06) hence the title "Vela, Together We Await".

    wow

    the nocturne album owns the old one, there's more singing on this album :D
    tbh, both his singing and screaming improved, he used to sound like the IDT guy, now he sounds unique
