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

Track Name: Rain From The Clouds
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
Track Name: Shallow Grave
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
Track Name: Putting Out The Fire With Gasoline
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)
Track Name: To The Heart Of It Child
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
Track Name: The Ides
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
Track Name: What's Behind That Door
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
Track Name: Sérénade Pour Les Morts
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
Track Name: Save Me
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
Track Name: Outside the World
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
Track Name: The Last King
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
