Casualties of War Another quiet town, where no one knows my name It makes it easier, for me to hide my shame How could people understand, the burdens that I bear Despite my good intentions, this path just brings despair [Chorus] But someone calls my name They've seen these scars before It shows that I'm to blame For the casualties of war I've sworn now to protect The ones worth fighting for From the enemies outside And the darkness in my soul A kind hand reaches out,unsure of what to do I can't accept the favor, it feels like deja vu They help me realize, that I don't have to hide I Shouldn't be controlled, by the monster deep inside [Chorus] But still I can't escape, the pain and misery The image of your face, burns in my memory By these wretched hands, and a sick twist of fate I lost the one I love, I reached out too late

Hindsight 04:16
Hindsight Can't seem to find the things to say These simple thoughts I can't convey I try to help you through the day And make your sadness go away [Chorus] Hindsight A beautiful blur Try to remember You as you were I'm losing time within my mind And searching through this past of mine I long to see you smile again Because I still view you as a friend [Full Chorus] Hindsight A beautiful blur Try to remember You as you were Hindsight Lost in the past Trying to make these Memories last (Instrumental Bridge) [Full Chorus]
3.
Going Nowhere Far far away there's a silence that knows Aside from our instincts there's much room to grow But can we move towards beauty In a time like this Across from my vision there's so much to learn And under what's waiting ahead do I turn But what can you expect from me In this lifetime [Chorus] Meaningless words they ring in my ear Why is it real life that we fear Emotions do shadow the truth that is nothing But still we make something just to care Going Nowhere I know often times I've got nothing to say The things all around me go drifting away And if you ask what's inside my head I believe it's blank And cancel the words I spoke to you last My mindset was awful it came out too fast There's a reason you're alone When you go thinking [Chorus] (Bridge) [Chorus] Going Nowhere (x2)

Miasma 04:26
Miasma Alone and in despair I can not feel you there One day you're here, the next I don't know I wake up from a dream Amazed at what I've seen I try to go back in, go back to sleep It's there I see your face a strange familiar place I cannot say the same when I awake Our run is over A life is over So many chances gone to waste [Chorus] You never said not to worry You never said it'd be alright We never were in a hurry And now we've let all of our time pass us by A stranger passes by With sadness in his eyes Keeps a steady pace, a good disguise And though he tries his best To live among the rest The man that was inside has already died Cause no one can replace All that has been erased And so it goes, a shattered hope in fate (Bridge) [Chorus]

Reality 03:50
Reality There's no washing the stains that have tainted your sight Should you remove every color, exposing the things that you hide Keep your faith, keep your faith Don't step down from the doorway It's too late, It's too late To make something of this life Upon believing, your changing the world with your pride Who's gonna listen, and tell you what's wrong and what's right What's right You can, catch the snowflakes as long as they fall Come march it don't mean nothing at all There's no planning the future, day by day There's no planning the future There's no reason to fall down every time you try Should you remove all distractions Exposing the real reasons why Keep your faith, keep your faith Two steps back and one forward Gonna break, gonna break A little more every time Upon believing, your changing the world with your pride Who's gonna listen, and tell you what's wrong and what's right What's right You can, catch the snowflakes as long as they fall Come march it don't mean nothing at all There's no planning the future, day by day There's no planning the future

about

R.O.P. Detroit, Michigan

Dynamic and versatile, R.O.P. can and will deliver soaring sounds of crunchy guitar riffs, pulse-pounding backbeats, bluesy vocals, and a guttural groove often preceded by swooning ambient flavors, in-the-pocket playing, soft-spoken lyrics, and a brooding undertone. It also comes as no surprise to find the musical palette decorated with appetizing guitar solos, harmonies and killer instrumentals. ... more
