about

Obsolete's sophomore EP is powerful and heavy progressive rock, yet still maintains the beauty and simplicity the band has become known for. One fan said, "This EP captures your live sound much better and carries a certain energy with it." Give it a listen and let the music speak for itself!

Track Name: Grey
So many nights spent wrapped in your embrace
So much warmth and light once filled this place
So many dreams and hopes were placed, with you...

How could it ever end? How could I spend
a day without my friend?
This young, hopeful boy couldn't comprehend, the end

But somehow I knew, deep down inside
Tried to ignore, but now it's opened wide

Somehow I always knew that I'd be doing this alone
With no one here to call a friend, with no light on at home
I'm trapped in thoughts inside my head, memories and stories

Chorus:
Somehow I always knew that I'd be doing this alone
With no one here to call a friend, with no light on at home
Blinded by truth I can't ignore, Can't call you my own anymore

All alone at night, there is no light
All the stars don't seem to shine as bright
Somehow I knew these fragile dreams would break for you

Never want to open myself again,
Endless is my love for you, my friend,
Walls built around this heart until the end

And now I know, in the dark we hide
Afraid of everyone, since the night we died

(Chorus)

Somehow I always knew that I'd be doing this alone
With no one here to call a friend, with no light on at home
I embrace these thoughts inside my head, find strength within their beauty

Somehow I always knew that I'd be doing this alone
With no one here to call a friend, with no light on at home
This is the truth I won't ignore, I'll stand alone and proud forevermore.
Track Name: Seven Years
Sifting through photographs
Longing for days gone past
Dying to see your face
Dying here in this place

In the dawning of the spring, the breath and life of each new thing
Refreshing breeze just makes me sing about, the ebb and flow, the to and fro
Oh, where'd the time go?
The scent reminds me of the past, those sacred days that didn't last
It all just happened way too fast and now, broken but whole
I bare my soul

The spring gives way to summer's life, the joining of a man and wife
These loved ones make me see just why it's so, hard to let go, the one I know
Still I love her so
The vibrant trees and fields and sky, the sounds and smells of sweet July
Should fascinate me now, but I've been lost, in yesterday, and here I stay
Just can't pull away

Sifting through photographs
Longing for days gone past
Dying to see your face
Dying here in this place
(repeat chorus)

And now the fall has come again
I cry out in the pouring rain
I'm sick of myself and the pain
Wash away from me

I watch as the trees fade and die
So tired of wondering why
Four years and still so hard I try
Wash away from me


Wash away from me...
Track Name: Away
Through the raindrops falling, I see your face again,
outlined in the glass, shadowed by the moon
I want for you to see me, I want for you to know me,
for you to reach right through this storm, I'd love for you to hold me
Watch me with your gaze that sees, to the depths of all things
Love and truth and wisdom, Overlaid with beauty

Chorus:
I have nothing left, except your hand in mine
We can face this world, one day at a time
You and I
Will sail away and leave the shores
So far, so, so far, behind

Now the storm has ended, now the clouds have parted,
now the world is sleeping, now the darkness takes you
I will be there for you, in your darkest hour,
to reach to you right where you are, and wipe the tears away
I would search the ends of earth, to be what I can for you
Though my imperfections, will never compare to you
