about

The Wild War's eponymous LP floats with bold songwriting, deep grooves and undeniable musical talent. Featuring 3 strongly connected musicians in a classic blues trio setup, the album nods to a sense of 60's reminiscence built on a modern psychedelic indie-rock platform. The crashing rhythms, heady songwriting, and exceptional execution prove The Wild War will continue to hold their own. Standout tracks: "I Saw This," "Choke," "Sticky Lights"

Track Name: I Saw This
I COULD SEE THE WORLD AS IT WAS
FROM THE EDGE OF MY WINDOW, LAST NIGHT,
AND I COULD TELL YOU ANYTHING ABOUT EVERYTHING IN THE WORLD
AS IF YOU HAD TURNED ON THE LIGHTS, IN MY EYES,
AND THEN I SAW THIS.
(THAT) I WON’T LET YOU BE THE ONE TO BREAK MY FALL
I WON’T LET YOU BE THE ONE WHO’S ENDING IT ALL
I WON’T LET YOU BE THE ONE TO BREAK THIS ACHING HEART.
THE MOOD IT STARTED CHANGING AGAIN
BUT THIS TIME TO A VIOLET,
INSTEAD OF WHAT YOU THOUGHT IT MIGHT BE.
AND YOU SAID TO ME,
“OH WHAT THE FUCK IS HAPPENING, I CAN’T SEE A THING.”
BUT THEN I SAW THIS.
Track Name: City Of Thieves
MY MIND HAS GONE
BACK TO THE PLACE THAT THEY CAN’T WAKE ME FROM,
THIS LUCID DREAM I’VE BECOME.
WE GAVE THE TRUTH A WHOLE NEW MEANING,
THE BROKEN RHYTHM NEVER NEEDED RHYME,
I’VE NO PLACE LEFT TO HIDE.
TIME SPENT
BREATHING FIRE AGAIN,
I LEFT
IN THE HOPES THAT YOU’D
FIND OUT
WHAT I BUILT IN THE GARDEN
IN THIS CITY OF THIEVES.
MY MOUTH WILL RUN,
AND SPILL THE FACTS ABOUT THE DAMAGE YOU’VE DONE
TO THE OUTSPOKEN ONES.
BUT THIS ISN’T ENOUGH SO FUCK IT AND JOIN WITH ME,
WE’LL BOARD THIS TRAIN AND DERAIL EVERYTHING--
EVERY GODDAMN THING
IN THIS CITY OF THIEVES.
Track Name: Decency
I SEEK A LITTLE POISON.
SO I CAN DROP IT IN YOUR EAR.
SO MEEK, AND FEELING LONESOME.
IT’S TIME THIS FALL WOULD DISAPPEAR.
I WANT TO DIE IN LEATHER,
SO YOU CAN WRING OUT ALL MY FEARS.
THIS COST OF WHETHER
THERE IS A SPACE BESIDE ME DEAR.
COMING ON
YOU WILL TURN IT ON FOR FREE
WITH A SENSE OF DECENCY
THAT IMMORAL MODERN MEN WOULD SEEK
FALLING OFF
THIS BRIDGE WAS QUITE A SCENE
ALL THE PEOPLE START TO SCREAM
AS THEY VIEW MY INNER FANTASIES
THESE CRIMES BREAK THE CONCRETE,
WHERE I LIGHTLY TREAD MY FEET
THIS ROSTER FLOATS INCOMPLETE
LOSING OUT ON HARMONY
I WANT TO DIE IN LEATHER,
SO YOU CAN RING OUT ALL MY FEARS.
THIS COST OF WHETHER
THERE IS A SPACE BESIDE ME DEAR.
Track Name: Fright
WE LOST ALL OUR CITIES TO A FIRE,
SO I’LL MOVE OUT TO YOUR SEA,
WHERE THE DOCKING IS FREE TO THOSE
OF URGENCY.
I BREAK IN THIS CONTEST OF DICE.
SHE TRIES TO COMPROMISE HER LIES
AS SHE LOOKS IN MY EYES
AND I SEE THE FRIGHT EMPHASIZED,
THOUGH I’M FINALLY IN A PLACE WHERE
I CAN BREATHE THE AIR.
I WATCHED THE FLAMES AS THEY GOT
HIGHER AND HIGHER.
WE FOUND A SAFE HAVEN
TO FILL OUR DESIRE.
I BREAK IN THIS CONTEST OF DICE.
SHE TRIES TO COMPROMISE HER LIES
AS SHE LOOKS IN MY EYES
AND I SEE THE FRIGHT EMPHASIZED
THOUGH I’M FINALLY IN A PLACE WHERE
I CAN HANDLE THE AIR.
Track Name: Thoughts Of You
I WALKED DOWN TO THE END OF MY BLOCK,
THIS VOICE TALKED AND TALKED MY EAR OFF.
I HEARD WHAT HE SAID, OH HE SHOWED ME
WHAT I NEEDED TO BE, AND I WAS EVERYTHING.
I COULD TRY TO FEEL IT ALL
OH CAN’T YOU SEE,
I HOPE YOU KNOW
IT’S JUST A GAME.
ALL I WANT IS WHAT YOU’RE NOT,
SO COME ON, GIVE ME WHAT YOU’VE GOT.
I WANT IT.
I NEED IT.
I KNOW THAT THIS WILL HURT QUITE A BIT
AS I TEAR OFF THIS DIRTY, FUCKING BANDAGE.
BUT I’LL BATHE MY WOUNDS
IN ALCOHOLIC THOUGHTS OF YOU
I COULD TRY TO FEEL IT ALL
I HOPE YOU KNOW,
OH CN’T YOU SEE
IT’S JUST A GAME?
ALL I WANT IS WHAT YOU’RE NOT,
SO FUCK IT, GIVE ME WHAT YOU’VE GOT.
I WANT IT.
I NEED IT.
Track Name: Choke
THERE IS A CROOK INSIDE OF OUR HOME TODAY.
THOUGH AS HARD AS I TRY I CAN’T MAKE OUT HIS FACE.
IT SEEMS THAT I AM STUCK BESIDE MYSELF.
THIS TIME IT COST ME SOME PEACE OF MIND,
AND I’M NOT ALRIGHT,
I’VE SEEN IT ALL BEFORE:
A BREAK IN THE CLOUDS
I WON’T HEAR THE SOUNDS
OF A CHANGE IN MYSELF THAT I WAS FORCED TO CHOKE ON.
Track Name: See You
THESE YOUNG BREEDERS,
THEY POSE OMNIPOTENCE.
FACELESS READERS
BOND SWIFT ARROGANCE.
THIS WARM SATURATION
IS ALL MY INFLUENCE.
AGAIN.
CRACK IN MY LEFT HEEL.
I SWAY AT THIS.
I SWAY IN HASTE OPPOSITION.
AGAIN.
VAIN IS THE RAIN
THAT FALLS ABOVE MY HEAD.
FUCK THESE WALLS
I ALWAYS END UP FEELING SO
PSYCHOTIC IN.
I CAN FEEL FOR THE FIRST TIME,
IN WHAT FEELS LIKE SEVERAL WEEKS.
A SINGLE HIT WOULD FANCY ME SO,
FAREWELL, I KNEW YOU WELL.
Track Name: Sticky Lights
TIME STOPPED
AND WATCHED IN THIS SHOP WINDOW WHERE WE LOST IT ALL,
IT WAS JUST A BATTLE OF OUR WITS AND HEART,
LET’S CHALK ALL THIS UP TO ANOTHER FALSE START.
FILTERED SIGHT THROUGH THE SEA OF
STICKY LIGHTS THAT HAVE PULLED MY LEG, ONE TOO MANY TIMES.
THEY PUT UP A FUSS
WITH DREAMS OF THEIR ERADICATING US.
IT WAS JUST A GAME, BUT THAT GAME THAT WE REFUSED TO PLAY INTO.
I FELT SO LOST WITHOUT YOU.
THEY CAUGHT US IN REFLECTION BUT THEY ONLY SAW THE DEVIL IN HUE --
I WAS SO LOST.
