They’re growing in they’re growing I just want to let you know It’s gonna end It’s gonna end I just want to let you know they’re growing in and it’s harder to cut back now Cut the branches but the seeds have long been strewn out it’s growing in and it’s harder to cut back now Again you cant win Maybe lie don’t say all the words. lie don’t see all the words lie don’t see all the words Cos anymore would be ambition anymore would mean hope in tomorrow For tomorrow Cos anymore it would feed the fiction anymore would mean you're not alone now, cos you are alone now move on Cos anymore would be ambition anymore would mean hope in tomorrow For tomorrow Cos anymore it would feed the fiction anymore would mean you're not alone now, cos you are alone now move on

Each day I can spend with you I’m not dead at least not yet I just want to drown in the dream I want to believe a green hope a green faith don't mean it works out ok the come down the next round I’m ready, I’m ready, I’m not ready for the violence Forget the question there’s no good answer it's changing all time There’s no everlasting way no good answer nothing satisfies nothing satisfies and never will bitch please no one's gonna save you alive but we're alone and there's no thing we do machines won't do but had we been more selective had we been more selective there's no gaurantee that all that's wrong would have worked out Forget the question there’s no good answer change it won't arrive for us change won't arrive There’s no everlasting way no good answer nothing satisfies nothing satisfies and never will I know I'm not dead yet not dead at least not yet i want the sex and more i want the blood and warmth I want to feel more more Forget the question there’s no good answer change it won't arrive for us change won't arrive I take it all all for granted nothing satisfies nothing satisfies and never will Forget the question now it's no use change don't matter let it go Cos I take it all all for granted nothing satisfies nothing satisfies and never will

I Fight the feeling - it won’t go away You're a poison and I'm in love with the taste To have you right now, I'd do terrible things. You see There's no one in control and we're reptilian Come in closer, whisper crazy to me See you're my only escape And promises don't break first, first they decay It was august in new orleans and the sweat was running down the windows and doors We're swimming in the light You scream for more Let it take over - let go Just let it come over - come here right now I forget you're crazy; you forget I'm a drunk Just let it take over we can let it go When we drove to Arkansas Stayed in that dirty motel room It don’t get better than that I thought baby It don’t get better than that But you wanted to run You want to do wrong Fuck it just come over here right now I need you so bad it tears me up I'll forget you're crazy I forget you're crazy; you forget I'm a drunk Just let it take over let it go It was august in new orleans and the sweat was running down the windows and doors We're swimming in the light You scream for more Let it take over - let go Just let it come over - come here right now I forget you're crazy; you forget I'm a drunk Just let it take over we can let it go

Always think about It's perfectly unnatural right You can't pick one mind 38 times a day But if you're gonna be an asshole Best go all the way Morning takes so long to come The night never lets go When I wake up and hear you cry out my heart lifts at the sound I'm chained to you and I'll do anything to say chained to you Though I'm bound to fail to Always think about It's perfectly unnatural right You are first in line, at least now You mean everything to me now But you are cursed - you're mine and you'll find out But you mean everything to me now. And aught to know that Each long chain it drags it's anchor that tears holes in the floor Don't end up another well trained liar. Stay sincere as a gun. I'm chained to you and I'll do anything to say chained to you Though I'm bound to fail to Our chains torn in two Remade better in you

The best excuses I make the best excuses Like hey hey...I can’t stay Here’s to another day you don’t get back. i know if you’d just relax you’d see that it wont stay it wont stay Perhaps we’re just over thinking Cos we almost tried Oh no, it’s tomorrow; and i’m Gin soaked Honey I’m freaking honey i’m freaking you’re too aware of your pulse it doesn’t do any good you’re too aware of your pulse it doesn’t do anyone it doesnt do anyone when you’re calling everything a sign if you’d just relax you’d see that it won’t stay it won’t stay Perhaps we’re just over thinking Cos we almost tried My love you’re the one thing that can stop the clock from turning yes my love you’re the one thing that can stop the clock from turning but Oh no, it’s tomorrow; and i’m Gin soaked oh no gin soaked

To wield the knife again I'd trade it all To drown the details I'd trade it all To start again To escape the end This gesture's vacant This gesture's fake and you know it She's gone forever Gone like the seasons and snow The justice of the sun Waits for no one The fire in the sky As fires do, one day will die by definition die The past is vacant. The past is fake and you know it. It may be vacant, but I miss the beat of my home. Our atmospheres piled high evaporate and blow away All that I've gathered round Safe no more. Blown away Lips they turn to leather dried in the mid day sun All I said I'd never do to you I've done worse and more The justice of the sun Waits for no one

First they break windows then they're breaking down you're door Broken windows lead to Dahmer moving in next door That's right that's fine w/ me we've one quarter of the world's Prison population. You won't do shit about it. Let that shit go. Well of course it'd be different if it were my kids I come from concrete and concrete is all I know I stole I sold some drugs and now chainlink's all I know I never hurt no one and getting raped is all I know If life's a game it’s rigged, if you ever had a chance you don’t no more Well of course it'd be different if it were my kids I'd let em all out It's not the same I know it's not the same I know that I'd let em all out. If they're non-violent. I'd let em all out. I don’t want to find out what they might know Another Isaac. A blade and an instruction note

there's no love but with you girl you know I. the bombs went off at 3am off the coast of iceland and now we're sinking into the dark w/ no hope of rescue i cannot see to, write to you the horror's gone the only sound is the crying of the walls to give out there's no time If only I'd have gotten up and danced one last time with you was only ever drunk and never without some cheap excuse I hope you never doubt how I loved you there's no time Feel no religion see no light my last thoughts as they come to me are only pictures of you the pain's not dying it's knowing i will never again see you there's no love but with you girl

about

Charles and Michael are KNTRLR, the production duo behind The Great Filter - out on Goodnight Records on February 24th. The LP expands their sound just as well as it expresses their maturity, both in music and in life experience. The men behind KNTRLR have evolved, but their backgrounds may belie some of the pensive lyrical storytelling of their best songs. From love and death to loss and family, the sum of the band’s life experiences has created a darker collection of songs. Michael is raising children, and the untimely passing of their close friend and The Great Filter sound engineer Jim Bentley has no doubt affected the songwriting. “XXX” is the first single from their new record, and the strong confidence in the sound they’ve built is obvious; the life experience has served KNTRLR’s music well.

If The Walkmen joined with Death Grips and toured brothels, we have something like the sound of KNTRLR’s debut LP The Great Filter
