Stendhal 05:05
“Stendhal” Fiery taste for lust, set your sights so high So close to the edge, when did wrong turn right? Captivating you, what a fool would do Pull your anchors up, sail into the storm [Chorus] See the complications of the urges that you long to free Fighting with the question is it real or just a memory? Misery, a fight within is haunting I finally see, a beauty in the curse in me And maybe, the exit is the entry Flee the scene and change your fate See what is waiting, unleash the power within Distractions in your head Screaming for the night Secrets in your bed The end is in sight [Full Chorus] See the complications of the urges that you long to free Fighting with the question is it real or just a memory? Letting every wall down as you lose and find identity No more reservations and you're giving in to destiny
Stillwater 04:49
“Stillwater” You, the still water Lying fixed within your ways You can't recall, how to make waves You can't recall, how to make change [ Chorus ] The dark corrupts what once was pure and keeps you from what you once were You, the still water Lying there throughout the days You can't recall the sun; it's blaze And away you'll fade [ Double Chorus ] The dark corrupts what once was pure and keeps you from what you once were Your stagnant, stubborn, selfish, pride Will spell the end and leave you dry You, the still water Refusing to amend the flow Regardless of the valves you purge You're still trapped and damned Where did you go? The one I used to know Are you lost in the sky Or washed away with the tide (repeat) [ Double Chorus ]
Ms.Out 04:15
"Ms. Out" Verse 1 Looking at this past of mine Wondering if there is still time To make up for mistakes i made Or will I regret all my days? Think about the times we had Wish that I had been armor clad Nobody can take the blame Must i live with all this shame? [Chorus] How long will this take? How long must I wait? I can't seem to shake The thought that I was too late I reach out to see what you'll say And then you just push me away Nothing's good enough for you Will someone tell me what to do? Tryin' to find the right words Turn this 'round, make it work but when I try to spit them out I find myself full of doubt [Chorus] I was too late I deserve this fate I can't save face I can't replace this You say you don't wanna talk I figure I should just walk Seems I can't expect a thing But this painful sting [Chorus]
"The Mourning After" The weight of life Crashed down on you Now nothing's left But your silhouette. I reach out my hand To someone who can't reach back A shell of what once was Can you see me? [Chorus] I used to call you friend Where did the time go I'm at a loss for words, it seems so absurd But I know you're gone for good. In dreams I can see You walking by You don't recongnize me Then you pass through the walls Aware of it now A pain deep inside Will I ever feel the same? Will I ever laugh again? The days seem like years Tired of these fears Nothing can be done This time it seems death won [Chorus] Now that you've left So many behind What are we to do With all this time
Fragments 02:57
“Fragments” When I look, upon your face I see the lies, left in your wake What remains, is nothing more Than remnants, fragments, left on the floor There is no understanding in your eyes You care not for the others in your life [Chorus] You're tearing me apart You let things go too far You're tearing me apart I'm left with only scars Now I can see what you are Betrayal, fallin' away I will not allow myself to be subjected to Your vicious tendencies that tore my life in two I have nothing left to hold on to The trust I had in life is through, my friend left with you [Chorus]

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
