Rain From the Clouds Like a moth to a flame or a voice in the rain Like a breath to a man no passion or pain Lost the moon while counting the stars. Lost the clouds while starring at the sun Lost our way in the passing of the time You can't put the rain back in the clouds Like waves to the shores and rivers to the seas Like tears in your eyes and cries in your pleas Lost our souls while chasing the dream You can't put the rain back in the clouds You just can’t put the rain back in the clouds

Shallow Grave This lonely room is my cold companion Four gray walls that time has forgotten All of the lives in this dance so perilous Life is a mistress so cruel and envious Bury me deep keep the crows from my bones Bury me on the plains so I'm close to my home Bury me in the cold so I cannot lose my way Bury me slow so I can feel the sun upon the day We are born to the world naked and alone We all leave the world blinded by dreams All these lonesome nights give way to the days And all these hastened days give way to years

See these eyes so green I can stare for a thousand years Colder than the moon It's been so long Feel my blood enraged It's just the fear of losing you Don't you know my name? You've been so long And I've been putting out the fire with gasoline See these eyes so red Red like jungle burning bright Those who feel me near Pull the blinds and change their minds It's been so long Still this pulsing night A plague I call a heartbeat Just be still with me You wouldn't believe what I've been through You've been so long Well it's been so long And I've been putting out the fire with gasoline Putting out the fire With gasoline See these tears so blue An ageless heart that can never mend These tears can never dry A judgment made can never bend See these eyes so green I can stare for a thousand years Just be still with me You wouldn't believe what I've been through You've been so long Well it's been so long And I've been putting out fire with gasoline Putting out fire with gasoline Well it's been so long (been so long) I've been putting out fire (been so long) It's been so long (been so long) Been putting out fire (been so long) It's been so long (been so long) Been putting out fire (been so long) Been so long (so long, so long) Been so long (so long, so long) Been putting out fire (been so long, so long, so long) Been putting out fire (been so long, so long, so long) Been so long Putting out fire (been so long, so long, so long) Been putting out fire (been so long, so long, so long) Been so long Been so long (so long, so long) Been so long (so long, so long)

To The Heart of it Child Verse 1 It’s a simple question begging for an answer How many more miles does it take to get away For there’s just enough time for one man in this life. Verse 2 Look what trouble brings A feckless hopeless fool Toiling in the need of notion And they say, that all must die Like the promise in your eye Or Tears of sorrow or tears of joy Chorus Rusted whiskey in a dirty glass Kings and fools and sparkly things Boyhood dreams along the way Smoke filled dreams in fancy skies Dreams and schemes Memes and screams Outro Dreams and schemes and smokey rooms Memes and screams and back to the heart of it all child

The Ides 04:32 video
Verse 1 Life slips through our hands like grains of sand Like souls in a bottle adrift on the tides of time A prophets charm with his blood stained past So speak to the power and pray for the poor Chorus By the moon and under the stars we sail Blinded we are by the eclipse of the sun Heaven is a place that slaves us to fate A curse upon the minds of all mankind Verse 2 It’s the mad kings head I seek not his throne To guard us from the fears of his sad revenge A bloodless coupe where souls come to die Breathless and naked we gaze into the sky
6.
Verse 1 Midnight grifters and morning drifters Lonely lovers and vicious drinkers Poison scriptures and heartless killers Angry healers and blessed speakers Chorus Graven hands and tangled tears Selfish lies to ease your fears Heavy hearts and addled years Craven thoughts and chilling sneers Verse 2 Drunken sailors and foolish teachers Burning dreamers and midday screamers Cunning stealers and lifeless dealers Helpless thinkers and lustful preachers
7.
Verse 1 Words define seeds are sewn Got the fever turned to stone Built a boat to feel the storm Tide to sea the wind is warm Fan the flames of endless rage Man the fool paces the cage Chorus Demons are at your door Villains are under your floor Monsters are in your head Creatures are in your bed Gangsters are in your yard Murderers are in your card Verse 2 Words spoken a tree not grown Hate like bullets is often thrown In our silence we crown the fool Sing the passion so all can rule Truth be told our blood to hold Damn the vain we grow too old

Save Me 03:26 video
Its cold in that place Desire is my hunger Because in my emptiness Down is all I have I need you to save me I need you to end the pain I need you to save me I try to hold on, hold on ,hold on But I need you to save me I try to hold on, hold on ,hold on But I need you to save me All those sleepless nights I fill my emptiness With you not by my side All the pain prevails I need you to save me I try to hold on, hold on ,hold on To a world that escapes me I try to hold on, hold on ,hold on But this life won’t let me And this love won’t let me No it just won’t let me Cause this love is now gone now gone And all you say is goodbye Only time can save me From a love that’s gone wrong From a love that’s gone wrong
9.
Verse 1 Light the fires for the sins of my youth Stoke the coals and let the embers burn Feed the flames of desire and hunger All of the warmth in a cloud filled life Chorus The gilded age of common ground The heartfelt pulse hear the sound The hollow words of a man undone All our empty lies cannot be outrun Verse 2 Just say goodbye to all the silence Great dreams begin with dreamers Hearts made mad waiting for the sun
Like a star that’s waiting for the night Chorus The gilded age of common ground The heartfelt pulse hear the sound The hollow words of a man undone All mans empty lies cannot be outrun Verse 3 The reapers hand in search of breath The weak, the strong, the mild the meek We never get to never pass this way again Vision or vengeance the mercy of the fallen Outro Outside the world Outside the world The hollow words of a man undone The hollow words of a world undone
10.
Verse 1 Even though our precious time slips away All our secrets die lonely and silently Because if nothings burned nothing grows You battle life’s troubles every step of the way. You know we are all just stumbling in the dark. Bridge 1 A Judas amongst men A demon in the crowd A god amid mortals A child with no name Chorus Every man has a past Every room has a door Every day has a night Every word has home Bridge 2 A flame in the hearth A graven image in the sky A sail set into the wind A darkness on my mind Verse 2 Careful of godforsaken dreams and shame We can’t change the world in a single day I once knew a cold insufferable man of evil So keep your friends close and enemies distant Because it’s a thin line between fool and hero I know a insufferable man as cold as it gets We all die of our lonely secrets No more pain no more shame I once knew a cold insufferable man as cold as it gets Keep friends close and enemies distant Because it’s thin line between fool and a hero

about

The philosophy for Antiquity has always been, the right musician and singer for the right song. In this latest album, we decided to move away from singles and concentrate on one singer around a concept album. I wrote the songs and the lyrics and Dan Ecclestone came up with the wonderful melodies and vocals. I’ve read that a lot of people still like listening to whole albums and are drawn to unsigned bands. It’s heartening to know that in this day and age. Myself, Gerald Duchene, wrote the music and lyrics, produced and played on these tunes, and Dan Ecclestone is responsible for the vocals and melody lines and Simone Silvestroni provided the wonderful and ethereal bass lines. Dan and Simone are based in Cambridge UK and I’m based in Brooklyn New York
