THE HEAVIEST OF GROOVES

By Definition make it their aim to shake the audience to the bone. With driving riffs, raw vocals and fat bass they apply their unique sense of humour to every trope in the genre. Hard-hitting, beer-swilling, good time riffage for your earholes. Or to put it another way: “There’s a freight train a comin’ through and it’s about to crush everything in it’s path!”. ... more

Track Name: Lie
LIE

Standing alone, With this microphone, Setting the tone It’s like you read my mind. Swept off your feet, I’m very discreet, If you wanted to cheat It’s like you read my mind. Open your thighs, And you catch my eye, You can’t be surprised When I take my time. Spin you around, With words from my mouth, I see you like it when I take my time. All this reasoning, Are you listening? Are you listening to me My love?

Vows, Say them aloud, Arrogant and proud, All words are wind.

You’re not as lucid with my tongue upon your spine, I think the truth is You wanted me to lie.
Track Name: Waiting
WAITING

I saw you while I was in a state of decay, I was looking helpless I was fading away, Can I sit down and feel your fire? Watch you drown as I start to perspire.

What was I waiting for? I wasted my time with you.

I saw you while I was in a state of decay and I tried to think of all the things I should say, why do I destroy the things I try to create? Sit and watch you burning In a circle of hate.

What was I waiting for? I wasted my time with you.

Can’t forget my problem baby, soon enough this all fades away, can’t forgive my problem baby, soon enough this fades away.

What was I waiting for?
Track Name: Old Regrets
OLD REGRETS

You know, you can’t rely, on the midnight train. Cold hard facts, on burning tracks, you’re circling the drain.

I’ve seen so many faces, I’ve heard so many lies, I’ve heard the same old story ‘bout a half a million times. I’ve seen so many faces, I’ve looked them in the eye, asked them why they’re crawling when they know that they can fly.

Folks will, always die, in a bed of their own making. Old regrets, and cigarettes, won’t stop their hands from shaking.

I’ve seen so many faces, I’ve heard so many lies, I’ve heard the same old story ‘bout a half a million times. I’ve seen so many faces, I’ve looked them in the eye, asked them why they’re crawling when they know that they can fly.
Track Name: Russian Doll
RUSSIAN DOLL

Isn’t it strange how someone can hold your life within their hands, gleefully grab your guarded guts and twist. They pull the strings and make you dance, a marionette, a grotesquery, till your footing starts to slip, like this.

I was a fool I ignored your tattoo, that Russian doll so revealing. A beautiful disguise hides a smallness inside, I see in your eyes desperation

Some Times Life mimics art Some Times Art mimics life

Why does that savage mixture of imaginings and scorn, mess up my maimed and muddled mind untied. When analysis and therapy descend into Anal-rapy I’m left beside the wayside, surprised.

I was a fool I ignored your tattoo, that Russian doll so revealing. A beautiful disguise gides a smallness inside, I see in your eyes desperation.

Some Times Life mimics art Some Times Art mimics life

When life and art is all the same Please put a bullet in my brain. I’m sure I could take the pain, or maybe I’ll just sleep again.
Track Name: Legend
LEGEND

I was there in ‘63 When one shot made grey matter. Put my hand up to my neck again, I choke and splutter. I was there pulling bricks when your wall came tumbling down, kiss my hand and suck my dick, I’m glad that you’re around.

Take me back to ‘94 and I’ll make you a legend. Put a shotgun in your mouth You’ll never be forgotten. I’ll erase your mistakes, just like you’re born anew. Who cares if you’re guilty when they all bow to you.

I will be your only friend, first of all the other men. I’m 27 with time to lend, you’ll thank me In the end.
Track Name: Warrior
WARRIOR

Now I know the face of my enemy. Look into the eyes of a soldier. I’m not the man I pretend to be In fact I’m just a little bit shorter, I told ya. My superstitions, belie my conditions. Now I know the face of my enemy, one more f**king time.

Oh no I’m a warrior, Oh hell no I’m a carrier and I carried her.

I found a cure for all my insecurities, assassination for hire. There are men in cars who are watching me and they’ve been there for a while. The things I know, the things I’ve seen, Everything that I could be. The pain I’ve wrought, that rash I’ve got, my secrets stay with me.

Oh no I’m a warrior, Oh hell no I’m a carrier and I carried her.

She cannot have this. This one is mine I’ve had the practice every f**king day of my life.

Oh no

Oh no I’m a warrior, Oh hell no I’m a carrier and I carried her Home.
Track Name: Intravenous
INTRAVENOUS

Living, a common way to die. Forgiving, the shadows in my mind.

I can feel you, running through my veins, I scream impossible and then you feel my pain. Nothing’s sacred but I’m on my knees, You took my only son, now bring him back to me.

Sleep, In a certain kind of dream. Silence, Another sort of scream.

I can feel you, running through my veins, I scream impossible and then you feel my pain. Nothing’s sacred but I’m on my knees, you took my only son now bring him back to me.

I caught you stealing the blood from my veins, I don’t know if you noticed you’re playing my game. Take what you want but please tell me your name, I caught you stealing the blood from my veins.

I can feel you, running through my veins, I scream impossible and then you feel my pain. Nothing’s sacred but I’m on my knees, you took my only son now bring him back to me.

Bring him back
Track Name: Slow Jam
SLOW JAM

An interrupted sleep, Into your house I creep. Faces at the window, now someone else knows.

How I know, How I knew crescent moon, rumours not the same as truth. Double meaning, double team, spoken word and the colour green.

The joker plays his cards, he drew the ace of hearts. A skill I never learned.

But I will on my, on my return.

How I know, How I knew crescent moon, rumours not the same as truth. Double meaning, double team, spoken word and the colour green.
Track Name: Fooling No One
FOOLING NO ONE

Freed, though I never saw your face. Bleed, though I sure do like the taste. Unchained, throughout this world I roam. Such a shame that I’ve got nowhere else to go.

I just keep on roaming, when will I get home? What am I proposing? I can’t do this on my own.

I lie, In a hole I made for two. I’m shy, I know you feel it too. I try hard but I’m not fooling anyone. I’m left scarred, reflect on what I’ve done.

I just keep on roaming, when will I get home? What am I proposing? I can’t do this on my own.

I’m left alone again, left alone.
Track Name: Z, M.D.
Z, M.D.

Left in my cell, I’m f**king naked. I’ve been through hell. This test I’ve taken. When they beat me down I know I’ll look them in the eye.

I tried it, for far too long. Don’t take too much to awaken. The darkness in our souls.

They were like me until they put me away. Chosen to be the ones who break me and create me, they’re the ones with the key. My nights spent on concrete, No name just call me by my number.

I tried it, for far too long. Don’t take too much to awaken. The darkness in our souls. Don't take too much to awaken.

They hold the key
