about

Voyage In Coma Maryland

The bastard son of DC hardcore. Established in 2008. Finishing up their third EP this summer to add to the previously released EP's: Cartography (2009) & You Appear Alongside Me (2011).

Their songs parse a personal and at once collective wreckage. Bitter and inconsolable, drawn to both feedback and melody, feedback always wins.

Track Name: Dark Water
the water was still
the road was bleak

there were warnings!
there were warnings!

by the shore
heavy fog, carp on the asphalt,
by the hundreds! by the hundreds!
red clouds have come
to open the earth
and I, left you behind.

the nurses remorse,
the drowned crammed in the elevator
You're on the seventh floor,
what were you dreaming of
when I left you behind?

promise me when you wake,
you won’t drown.
houses are swept away, roofs are ablaze! taken by waves.
promise me when you wake,
you won’t drown.
houses are swept away, roofs are ablaze! taken by waves.

The water was still
The road was bleak
What where you dreaming of
When I left you
When I left you behind?

Promise me when you wake
You won’t drown.
Track Name: Further
When did we lose you?
When did we lose?

Did we lose you that night?
We climbed the fence, to jump into the deep end
Was it while we rolled and gnawed?
Laid out on the district pavement?

Was it long ago before?
The summer we got sober?
Last time you slept on our dusty couch
I told you to run further.

You foam at the mouth and walk out...
Between the passing cars, I tried...
But could not come closer.

I thought you would die that summer...
I thought you would die.

You walk along the roadside and duck
into the cars of men.
I always told you to run further,
but its time to turn yourself in.

I thought you would die that summer.

If I could pitch the loam
under your dad’s porch...
Track Name: Lakota
She cries
by her daughters bed
Its the same scene... same... scene...

With their warrants
and their badges
and their gloved hands
in her carriage.

They call it
assimilation.

Look now
who's the savage.

A tribe of orphans.
The chief is on the white cross.
Rows and rows of cell blocks.
This is the wound that never heals.

Give them back.
( Our sons)
Give them back.
( daughters)
There's so few left!

With their warrants
and their badges
and their gloved hands
in her carriage.

Look now
who's the savage.
Track Name: Doxato
Bodies piled high
In the well

Rags wrap feet
Frost bit hard

They ate our harvest
Burned our town
We watched
As our stomachs churned

Shoving sheets into the tank treads
We kept fighting from the hills
We sliced their throats

Time sleeps when guns wake
The story my Grandfather would tell

Bodies piled high
In the well
Track Name: Zaraida
He took you
in his shed.
Stole your shoes
And beat you.

Walking alone
Frozen tears
Footprints in the snow

It wasn't the first time
It wasn't the last
Counting the moths

Stuck to the window sill
Hoping it would end
You're in my arms crying
Wishing for death

You can't forget the laughter as you cried.
No. Stop. Please.
How could they not see?
The bruises on your face.
Eyes red from grief.

How could they look the other way?
How could they? He took your will away.
Track Name: Family Trees
Roots
Run
Deep

Glass rose stems
Shell casings
Bare no seeds
Worth
Planting

flying off our motorcycles
shotguns set our children free
the hollow fruit
red cartridge
tungsten
needles filled with black ink

Glass rose stems
Shell casings
Bare no seeds
Worth
Planting

some family trees just burn and burn

The tree is burning, splintering, fuming.
The limbs are breaking, wishing this wasn't their tree?

Glass rose stems
Shell casings
Bare no seeds
No
