    It’s been many years, 2 EP’s, a DVD, car breakdowns, laughs, tears, hard work, and more gigs both in VIC and interstate than you can poke a stick at, and it’s all lead up to this. Ablaze’s long-awaited debut album is here!

lyrics

On a road so dark and lonesome,
Stretching off and out of sight.
The sun has long since left me,
Cold and weary in the night.
Thoughts, so unrelenting,
Of regrets I leave behind,
As I ride to I-don’t-know-where,
With my conscience as my guide.

I stop upon a river,
That I only know too well.
Long-forgotten memories
Upon its hidden spell.
Days of warmth and happiness,
Such feelings long since gone.
Memories left hanging,
And I can’t quite yet move on.

Do you see the road I have to take?
Do you hear the promises I make?
Do you know that what is said is done?
Do you fear what I’ve become?

I look up, lost in thought
From my cold seat on the curb,
At the bridge that almost took me
‘Til I finally lost my nerve.
A day I felt so empty,
Feelings I remember still,
Of heartbreak and betrayal
And the utter loss of will.

Movin’ to a place where
Scarred hearts were first entwined.
Shadows drift around me
And I still can’t seem to find
An answer that eludes me,
From when it all went down in flames.
Familiar wounds left bleeding
When a scarred heart rips again.

Do you see the road I have to take?
Do you hear the promises I make?
Do you know that what is said is done?
Do you fear what I’ve become?

The cruellest lies in silence,
The hardest truths in bold.
The warmest heart’s defiance.
The hardest soul to scold.
A necessary lesson
In the dark of life’s display.
A trust as thick as iron,
Left outside to rust away.

From a then I thought was different,
To a now I should’ve seen.
Wandering through the memories
To see what I can’t glean.
Warnings that I cast aside,
And swept under the bed.
Writings on the wall in blood
I didn’t have to shed.

Do you see the road I have to take?
Do you hear the promises I make?
Do you know that what is said is done?
Do you fear what I’ve become?

But I’ll claw, ‘til I rise to find a way
Then I’ll crawl, ‘til I find my feet again.
Then I’ll walk, ‘til my strength returns to me.
Then I’ll run, I’ll run, I’ll run!

Do you see the road I have to take?
Do you hear the promises I make?
Do you know that what is said is done?
Do you fear what I’ve become?
Do you fear?
You should fear.
Do you fear what I’ve become?

about

ABLAZE Melbourne, Australia

Like all great things in the world, Ablaze started out as an idea over beers at the local pub, intent on rocking out and partying hard. The hard rock guitar riffs, head banger drum beats and loin-quivering bass grooves will get your fists pumping and your liver begging for mercy. ... more
