about

A Thousand Shall Fall Santa Cruz, California

In a sea of bands following trends and becoming beholden to increasingly arbitrary compound genre titles, A Thousand Shall Fall stands stalwart. There is no fashion statement here, no obsession with the whims of others, and no compromises. A Thousand Shall Fall exists to pursue their music not as a mere passion but rather a compulsion, a manic obsession. ... more

Track Name: Mourning Son
You're not eating you're not sleeping
You're not breathing you're not moving
You're not speaking you're not bleeding
You're not thinking only mourning

You're not holding on to sight
Because you're dead inside
You can not hold on to life
When you're blinded by
Executions in daylight
Perpetrated by
Demons smiling in the night
Keeping secrets inside

You can't see the sun I know why
You can't feel the sun Blinded by
Demons in the night Dead inside
You will not realize I know why

You will not be coming back to life
You will not be coming back tonight

Now you're eating now you're sleeping
Now you're breathing now you're moving
Now you're speaking now you're bleeding
Still not thinking only mourning time

You can't see the sun I know why
You can't feel the sun Blinded by
Demons in the night I know why
You will not realize I will

Obliterate eradicate overthrow
Exterminate eliminate and destroy
I will
Obliterate eradicate overthrow
Exterminate eliminate and destroy

Obliterate eradicate overthrow
Exterminate eliminate and destroy
I will
Obliterate eradicate overthrow
Exterminate eliminate and destroy

Why
You can't see the sun I know why
You can't feel the sun Blinded by
Demons in the night Dead inside
You will not survive Jaded
Track Name: Weaver
Manipulation
Design
Shudders
From the sky
Illusion
Sacrifice
Manipulation

Large scale high impacts
Mass extinction dust and ash
Increased eruptions
Exposé of deaths construction
Silent inside
Future told before our time
Inside of hives
History has been contrived

Making light of reign
Empathy deranged
Scars of future taken over now
Humble thoughts contained
Hidden past explained
Never wonder to who your elders owe

Chasing dreams under seas
Not lost growing too late
Drift away expectorate
For all wonders will cease

Manipulation

Large scale high impacts
Mass extinction dust and ash
Increased eruptions
Exposé of deaths construction
Silent inside
Future told before our time
In sight of hives
History has been denied

Bringing on the lies
Making light of life
Years of memories forgotten all
Shutting down
Towers fall
Simply put all is overgrown

Chasing dreams under seas
Not lost growing too late
Drift away expectorate
For all wonders will cease

Manipulation

"What a world"

Body armor and spines
Elaborate display signs
Skeletal modifications
Habitual deception
Crawling domination
Terrestrial damnation
Tragically rendering destruction
Overwhelming implications
Succumbing to the concept
Of annihilation

Large scale high impacts
Mass extinction dust and ash
Increased eruptions
Exposé of deaths construction
Silent inside
Future told before our time
Inside of hives
History has been denied
Fire from the sky
Oceans swelling taking life
Once the cradle now the casket
Realize the embrace of rapture

Chasing dreams under seas
Not lost growing too late
Drift away expectorate
Purge the idols disease

Manipulation
Track Name: Nights of Gethsemane
Falling inside of eyes end salvation
Searching through dusk which once was a soul
All signs of hope appear and vanish
Perpetuates the need for more

Devour the consequences
And deconstruct
All implications that
This is pure dumb luck

Igniting the fire inside
Despising the power in fear for your life

Our nights are completely haunted
You want what can never be yours
Implying the comfort
Of constant reassurance
Of never ending self destruction

Burning them all down
Making spectacular scenes
Of light and darkness
All encompassing hope
Spilling out of every pore
Taking time in vain

Igniting the pyre inside
Relenting to fates of spoiled design

Burning them all down
Making spectacular scenes
Of light and darkness
All encompassing hope
Spilling out of every pore
Taking time in spades
Tearing the sky down
Setting everything in sight
Alight with retribution
Comprehensive
Loss of control
Shooting out of every pore
Turning the lights out
Spinning diabolical tales
In night with darkness
Breaking the cycle
Taking everything in stride
Track Name: The Wretched
End all life
Terrorize
End all life
Terrorize

I

End all life
Terrorize
End all life
Terrorize

The hour has come
To pull you down to earth
The hour has come
To bring you back to life

So slay them one and all
Those who fell way before their time
They wanted the best but you gave them the worst
Never believe in what was left
Behind

Giving them all that they wanted to be
Couldn't care less if they sacrifice me
Taking control of every single thing You never knew was yours to complete
Breaking the mold
The selling of souls and extinguishing
Ending the reign of innocence with flames
Thus cleansing purity with pain

The hour has come
To pull you down to earth
The hour has come
To bring you back

Gave them all that they wanted to be But you couldn't care less what was laid before thee
Waking alone
Selling your soul
Realizing that nothing can stop the belief That the end is only the beginning
Won't bring you back again
Can't bring you back again
