A doctrine of archaic lessons A culture of fear and confession Guilt paves the path to your blessings No questions; only offerings As this inquisition Urges submission of the mind Negligent conjecture On a guiding hand of the divine I wonder if we’re trying to find The truth or quick solutions To the entangled consequences Of reactions and wrong doings. Given the choice Why aren’t we using Erudition to see through this? A doctrine of archaic lessons A culture of fear and confession Pain paves the path to your blessings No questions; only offerings With amenities coercing belief And prostration to the make believe

The Dish 02:45 video
We really wanted to believe It was something special Everything we could conceive… Some search forever, But some, they just have it And that should have been the break But who really knew How quickly it would ruin We were all just so naïve To think we could make it With such weak ass will But we needed to believe These backyard arenas Would keep us runnin’ all the while ‘Cause we knew that they’d go all the way Given all the “whoas”! They say don’t give up until the end Well that’s where we appear to be So far away Yet we keep holding to this tether But not for what it seems Brotherhood, Another family Given what we know New direction, new perspectives We could never turn away Lifers ‘til the end We thought they’d have the world by now Given all the “whoas”!

Redirect 02:30
No matter what you say No matter what you do It all comes back to you No matter what you say No matter what you do It all comes back to you Keep a weather eye upon the storm It’s growing all around you As you’re looking forward Beware the tempted tempest scorn Will catch up with you eventually Now you’re swimming shoreward Time to atone now For what you put people through Time to change your tack, man Before it comes back to you You’re going down I’m going down We’re going down No matter what you say No matter what you do It all comes back to you No matter what I say No matter what I do It all comes back to me too Actions speak much louder You can’t run away forever She’s coming for you

You Believe 03:02
What the fuck ya doin' You're about to ruin What could be rearranged Who the fuck ya playin' There is no delayin' The coming tides of change And we have prevailed since the dawning of time Liberating the soul from the powers that bind us (from the powers that bind us.) And you believe In this routine That says fuck those around you Unless it conforms to The benediction you seek Benefiting the privileged Suppressing the weak Where the fuck ya goin' We've been down this road and We know where it leads When the fuck will you see Blatant insincerity Imbedded in your deeds And we have prevailed since the dawning of time Liberating the soul from the powers that bind us (from the powers that bind us.) Since the dawning of time Liberating the soul from the powers that bind us (from the powers that bind us.) And you believe, In this routine, That says fuck those around you Unless it conforms to The benediction you seek Benefiting the privileged Suppressing the weak So you speak of love, But get that word outcha' mouth It is clear to me You don't know what it means So you speak of love But get that word outcha' mouth I can clearly see You lack the capacity

Do you think you went the wrong way Took the wrong turn, wandered astray Now you’re looking back It seems like you’ve lost all direction So you wonder where you might be Given chance and opportunity Don’t you think that looking back Is focus in the wrong direction? Man, I feel just like you do Life is full of bruises and battle scars This world will tear your soul apart Don’t let it dictate who you are You can learn to fall the right way You can learn to swim before you sink You can live to fight another day You’ve gone too far to throw it all away You can learn to fall the right way You can be strong even on the brink So brace yourself… The impact is not as bad as you think Don’t regret, but Don’t regress, and Don’t forget to forgive yourself You can learn to fall the right way

"Seasoned Stuntman"

This EP is about failing. Not being a failure, but knowing how to take risks and how to get back up. Knowing how to move on. Over the course of our life we all become Seasoned Stuntmen. These songs are for those of us who take a fall and land in a way that allows us to keep trying.


Nonstarter Bio:

It is difficult to pinpoint Nonstarter’s relevance. A mix of guys who spent a lot of on again / off again time in their previous band while working in several other projects, Nonstarter has a very short history to speak of.

The goal of this band is a more nuanced version of their previous punk rock endeavors realized through deliberate utilization of skills developed over the years. The same four friends with new songs, a new studio, new skills in film and audio, even new families, but the same goal of combining dynamic music with thoughtful lyrics into songs that tell personal stories and reflections of the world at large.
