about

Forming in 2012, Motorist made quick work of a batch of hook-filled, riff heavy songs, and released a full length album, 'Days Of Young,' in the Spring of 2013. Motorist's music is nostalgic yet fresh, pulling elements from the best of the 90s post-punk era, but with a sound that's all its own. Days Of Young is full of high energy, punk infused songs, delivered by a powerful rhythm section that carries thick, crunchy rhythm guitars and harmonically pleasing leads and vocals. With power-house riffs and pop sensibilities, 'Days Of Young' is an urgent and passionate statement - offering an exciting new take on heavy music that will satisfy a wide range of listeners, both old and new.

Track Name: The Dying Breed
A late night in December - they finally put to rest her
Body next to mine.
And now the night becomes her- in a cemetery slumber
Now sleep through all of time.

I'm beginning to think that we're a dying breed
Never be forgotten just a memory
I'm beginning to see that it's just you and me
Always be remembered by our effigies

Dark prince undercover - a standing stone forever
still through all of time.
The moonlight soon to break in - this cold and misty season
Now sleep through all of time
Now sleep through all of time

I'm beginning to think that we're a dying breed
Never be forgotten just a memory
I'm beginning to see that it's just you and me
Always be remembered by our effigies

Like a stone into the water- always sinking lower
Rise up to the surface- so much for being cautious (sleep through all of time)

I'm beginning to think it's just the ghost in me
Never want for nothing just to rest in peace
and I'm beginning to see that it's just you and me
always be remembered as an effigy

(We Will! We Will!) Lay until it's safe
(We Wont! We Wont!) Rise until the morning
Track Name: Sanctuary Blue
Wait - I've heard this one before
I'll take my time in locking all of my doors
Just once more-
Just leave me behind

I'll be sifting through
These letters all from you
What's lost is labled crude
My sanctuary blue

Wait - Just one minute more
Take all my offerings through that door
Just once more-
Leave me behind

I'll be sifting through
These letters all from you
What's lost is labled crude
My sanctuary blue

For me it's all the same
Love, life and death in vein
From now on
the same song… the same song

Wait- I'll ask you just once more
To take- the time in breaking through my door
Don't leave me behind!

I'll be sifting through
These letters all from you
What's lost is labled crude
My sanctuary blue
Track Name: Furious Way
Lately I've been waking up - with my teeth around a pocket knife
Climbing up the bedroom walls - I'm such a curious boy
Now I'm staying up all night - my shadow casts a hollow man
Taking in the world tonight - in such a furious way

Such a furious way - Such a furious way

Lately I've been making up - stories in the park at night
Tell them to my new found friends - such a curious bunch
Now I'm staying out all night - my shadow casts a followed man
Taking on the world tonight - in such a furious way

Such a furious way - Such a furious way

I worked for years and got nothing saved
Three days from now my job leaves me
I followed the rules and now I'm forced to see
I helped make them rich and now they don't need me
and yet we'll survive...
Somehow we'll survive.

Such a furious way - Such a furious way
Such a furious way - Such a furious way

I worked for years and got nothing saved
Three days from now my job leaves me
I followed the rules and now I'm forced to see
I helped make them rich and now they don't need me
and yet we'll survive...
Somehow we'll survive.
Track Name: Free With Your Blessing
You write the script and I'll direct
Frame by frame we'll tell your story
But is it fame or a fabricated glory?
I can tell you almost anything and
I can be so- free with your blessing...

Freedom - from myself
Freedom from all those things- on my shelf
Reason - with myself
Freedom from all those things on my shelf
In my own hell.

You say it's art and I'll object
Scene by scene we'll exploit your story
Now it's a shame - but at least it's not boring.
Cause I can sell you almost anything and
I can be so- free with your blessing…

Freedom - from myself
Freedom from all those things- on my shelf
Reason - with myself
Freedom from all those things on my shelf
In my own hell.

(As the light flickers and glows!)
Track Name: Veils
Portray yourself a king
But your court's not listening
A simple mind in disguise
Royalty is not signified, not signified

Believe your own fiction
Fooled by your own deception

Your sentiment's not flattering
And this conversation's strangling
One day you'll realize
This is all in your mind, all in your mind

Believe your own fiction
Fooled by your own deception

Your see through skin (true self, we've seen)
A thin, weak veil (true self, we've seen)
Your see through skin (true self, we've seen)
A defense that failed (true self, we've seen)
Track Name: Strange Man
I lie in boredom's pit - I use to be a boy so small
and I can't get use to it - Growing up only to fall
Yes I remember - Days of young
Do you remember?

Now I lie in boredom's pit - I use to be a man so tall
and I can't get use to it - Standing up only to fall
Yes I remember - Oh what fun!
Do you remember?

What a strange man
In the looking glass - I think it's me
What a strange man
In the looking glass - I think it's me
What a strange man
In the looking glass - I think it's me
What a strange man...
I'm not a big fan.

Shattered and cracked! Shattered and cracked!
Shattered and cracked! Shattered and cracked!
Out the looking glass - Out the looking glass
He keeps coming back!

What a strange man
In the looking glass - I think it's me
What a strange man
In the looking glass - I think it's me
What a strange man
In the looking glass - I think it's me
What a strange man...
I'm not a big fan.
Track Name: The Heart That Breaks Me
If we are more than bodies
I'd say there's much to learn.
So then I ask myself…
for what am I concerned?
Everyday I ask myself…
For what am I concerned?
For what am I concerned?

For another moment I will catch myself defending
The heart that breaks me every time
For another moment I will catch myself defending
The heart that breaks me every time

If hell's a thinking man's party
I'd say we're bond to burn.
So then I ask myself…
For what have I then learned?
For what am I concerned?

For another moment I will catch myself defending
The heart that breaks me every time
For another moment I will catch myself defending
The heart that breaks me every time
Track Name: Public Address
Take, make your own
Break, force the fall
Subtle reminder of the lesser beneath you
Take, make your own

Eyes wide open, Blood filled oceans
Hands washed clean, stained with greed
Eyes wide open, innocent and broken
Hands washed clean, stained with greed

False, hope is gone
Trust, in your own
Hide the face of arrogance as they parade you
Trust, in your own

Eyes wide open, Blood filled oceans
Hands washed clean, stained with greed
Eyes wide open, innocent and broken
Hands washed clean, stained with greed

This is not progress, these enemies are not foreign - Our own, our own
This is not progress, these enemies are not foreign - Our own, our own

Eyes wide open, Blood filled oceans
Hands washed clean, stained with greed
Eyes wide open, innocent and broken
Hands washed clean, stained with greed
Track Name: Kings Of Our Time
In our own time
We'll take our - time
In our own time
We'll take it all back.

With breath like bad wine
and bank-rolled land mines.
The kings of our time
have no class at all.

(But we'll take it all back)

Like grapes from the vine
that's no way to fall.
The queen has no time
no time at all.

(But we'll take it all back)

Honestly…Honestly…Honestly…Honestly…
Honestly I'm a sucker for it all
and I could use a saving grace.

In our own time
We'll take our - time
In our own time
We'll take it all back.

These days are old and gone!
These days are old and gone!
These days are old and gone…
We'll take it all back

These days are old and gone!
These days are old and gone!
These days are old and gone…
We'll take it all back
