lyrics

our home was built on
a dream that's gone
on for so long
and it stood to be
ate by the sea
inevitably
but we can't bear
to bring an end to our spring
so we keep building

our welcome's worn worse than they'll say
and we all just stay the same
who's to blame?
for stubborn states of change
we'll all just play the game,
calamity cured correctly could be
but what we all see's
a Pyrrhic victory
too late to mitigate
oh, we bite the hand that feeds
and can't believe it bleeds.


I never said...
I know what's best
for this unrest
I only guess
that you and I
we gotta try
and kill the old lie
that we need
it all


how do we
deceive
with ease
what we believe
is insane and naive
what we ignore
is fear or
is there more?

our welcome's worn worse than they'll say
and we all just stay the same
who's to blame?
for stubborn states of change
we'll all keep playing the game
calamity cured correctly could be
but what we all see's
a Pyrrhic victory
too late
to change our fate
oh, the world burns on a pyre
and we just fan the fire

they'll never see
why can't they see a world
destroyed for money made
buys them only a gilded grave

about

Couteaux San Francisco, California

Couteaux formed the summer of 2011 after the demise of the post-rock group Atheorem, and as a side-project to the bay area metal band Simoom.
With our genres combined we can play melodic music with a punch...and also summon captain planet.

Our debut EP "Sail West to Reach The East" will be released June 30th, 2012 with all songs fully downloadable from our bandcamp...for a measly sum of $3.
