Tide Pools 02:26
Video image on the TV screen Heroes and villains out of history I know it’s just my reflection Staring out from broken glass Searching the tide pools for a shred of life Searching for darkness in the blinding light Nothing moves in the empty pools The broken land [Chorus] The ocean is screaming To see our hearts are still beating The tides of life The tides of life that ebb and flow inside our hearts Radio signals on the endless sky Travel like phantoms from another time Below a single dead eye Blindly watching our lives Searching the tide pools for a shred of life Searching for darkness in the blinding light Nothing moves in the empty pools The broken land, the veins of your grey hands Skeletons in the woods Life beneath a dust Cold equations form frozen minds Natural disaster from an ancient crime Bloodless arms of angels Reach for us as we drown [Chorus]

When they find our bones in stones They’ll think we were fighting Bodies shattered Inside a broken song It was really nothing at all Impression in the sand keep moving In the endless wind, keep moving [Chorus] Saw you lying in the sand Skin burned and Saw you in the sand Skin burned and eyes gone I know that you could see me You’re the dog drowning in quicksand I rode on, saw you rise, turned my head Impressions in the sand Motherless men, an empty land Sharpened claws Our eyes made wet by song I can still hear your call Like sand lifted in the endless wind Keeps moving In the endless wind [Chorus] Eyes gone Endless song Why did we share these things Dead dream, air screams Breath in your spirit Red sky, men cry, sirens wake our sleeping minds Eyes gone Endloss song Why did we share these things [2nd Verse Again]

Language There was a sign The wrong side The lights flashing Language There was a sign There was a sign The underwater feeling returns I used to stand on top of my house And imagine the ground rising up to kiss my head Surrounded by black paintings I wish that I I wish that I could make it start again Start again Start this heart again Or make it end Language There was a sign Surrounded by black paintings I felt you shake with each mistake In our maze lies I was awake I’m not This heart is not awake After it ends

about

This was our second demo, home-recorded by Michael Harriff. We were on our way to the studio, but we decided to keep documenting the songs as we went. Only one of these tracks ended up on our official EP, The Depths. Rust Empire on this recording is Rick Argiro [bass], Shane Durgee [vox], Michael Harriff [guitar], Chuck Hickey [guitar], and Tony Tornabene [drums].
