Scapegoat 02:37
Who do I believe? I’m tired of losing sleep- I WANT MORE It goes over in my head, words frozen, never said- I WANT MORE I wanna be more than a number, just another name; I wanna be more than your scapegoat, taking the blame Am I a have or have not? We all want something that we haven’t got- I WANT MORE When all my effort’s spent, I hope there’s something left to show for it- I WANT MORE I wanna be more than a number, just another name; I wanna be more than your scapegoat, taking the blame Yeah, I want something more, something more than this I want something more, because I’m feeling trapped Don’t want to be mislead, I don’t want to be ignored Yeah, I want something more Don’t know what I’m feeling, but I think you get the meaning- I WANT MORE I look at you, you look at me, I still don’t who to believe- I WANT MORE I wanna be more than a number, just another name; I wanna be more than your scapegoat, taking the blame Yeah, I want something more, something more than this I want something more, because I’m feeling trapped Don’t want to be mislead, I don’t want to be ignored Yeah, I want something more… more… more… more… No longer your scapegoat, NO LONGER, I’m gone No longer your scapegoat, NO LONGER, I’m gone

Dear Faith 01:23
I’ve found nothing in the architecture, I’ve found nothing in the doctrines or books; So I’m writing an open letter To Whom It May Concern: When I look to the sky above, I only find myself blinded by the sun The weather shifts and I’ve given up searching My dearest faith; you’re dead and rotting The Seasons come and the seasons go, And I’m still haunted by ghosts that are old. So much regret, So little redemption My dearest faith, forever lost This human shell that god forgot There will be no further post script When I say goodbye

Matrimony 01:10
There’s no denying that you’re married to The reflection staring back at you An arrangement you have to accept Because you’ve got a long time, till death Do us part Till death- do us part Till death- do us part Till death- it’s you, it’s you In spite of you And there’s no hope of divorcing Until you’re six feet in the grave You’re married to your waking life With every breath you take, till death Do us part Till death- do us part Till death- do us part Till death- it’s you, it’s you In spite of you Yeah Till death- do us part Till death- do us part Till death- do us part Till death, till death, till death, till death

Familiar 02:49
Sometimes these crowded streets are empty and lonely When familiar things don’t feel the same Sometimes I stumble on your memory What happened to you? What happened to you? There are places I don’t want to remember And there are places I don’t wanna go I trip and fall on a memory What happened to you? What happened to you? What happened to you? What happened to you? I just want to know; is this feeling permanent? I wish there was more but there’s nothing left; just memories The faces I knew, what happened to you? There’s nothing left; just memories The places I’d go, what happened to you? There’s nothing left; just memories Those memories Just memories The places I’d go, what happened to you? There’s nothing left; just memories The faces I knew, what happened to you? There’s nothing left; just memories

Lucifer 00:59

There’s something sinister behind that grin, just beneath the surface and just beneath the skin There’s always an alibi, that’s hidden in plain sight. You never see it coming, until it’s too late (speaking in forked tongues) I got caught looking through you, while you were speaking to me It ended the conversation, abruptly The devil that you know, better than the one you don’t But what happens, when they’re both thy honored father and the bringer of light? The lord of the flies: the devil in disguise. Better the devil you know; then the one you don’t Better the devil you know; then the one you don’t Speaking in forked tongues I got caught looking through you, while you were speaking to me It ended the conversation, abruptly The devil that you know, better than the one you don’t But what happens, when they’re both thy honored father and the bringer of light? The lord of the flies: the devil in disguise.

It’s between you, god and ghosts, what you do when you’re alone And thank god, no one’s telling, because your secrets would leave you exposed Do you expect a savior? Do you expect to be saved? Well, there are no happy endings It’s between you, god and ghosts, the promises you break And thank god, no one’s watching, because your image would fade away Peel back the skin, it’s no secret, you’ll find blood, muscle and bone Peel back the skin, you’ll find secrets, but that’s between you, god and ghosts Do you expect to be saved? Do you expect to be saved? Nothing changes nothing and at the end of the day: There are no happy endings There are no happy endings

Caskets 01:22
They tell me it’s gonna get better And that everything’s gonna be OK But the truth of it is, it’s as good as it gets And we’ve all got one foot in the grave They say it's gonna get better But nothing will ever change 'Cuz the truth of it is, when it's all said and done We are the ones to blame Still, they tell me it’s gonna get better And that everything’s gonna be OK But the truth of it is, it’s as good as it gets And we’ve all got one foot in the grave

Have you found what you were missing? Have you learned life’s lessons? Can you ever fill that hole? How deep does it go? Is it Fire and brimstone or lost and alone? WE ALREADY KNOW What you know WE ALREADY KNOW That you’re the devil’s own Yeah Right! WE ALREADY KNOW What you know WE ALREADY KNOW That you’re the devil’s own Yeah… You’ve got a LOT TO LEARN You’ve got a LOT TO LEARN You’ve got a LOT TO LEARN My son You’ve got a LOT TO LEARN You’ve got a LOT TO LEARN You’ve got a LOT TO LEARN And you’re on your own Oh! You’re on your own Side show demon You’re on your own Side show demon You’re on your own

about

"Caskets" is the debut LP from OLD GHOSTS, a hardcore band from Buffalo, NY containing 3 former members of DEAD HEARTS- and it shows; with passionately screamed vocals, hard breakdowns and sublime melodies, "Caskets" covers a lot of ground in its 22 minute play time. If you've liked DEAD HEARTS "Bitter Verses" LP, the territory will be familiar however; OLD GHOSTS isn't just more of the same, with a sound that is darker and harder and with lyrics that range from the deeply personal to questioning the concepts of god and faith. "Caskets" is an LP that is larger than the sum of its parts; creating an almost palpable aura of rage and despair and pulling the listener in with dark and haunting soundscapes. In short, "Caskets" is amazingly powerful and well-played modern hardcore that picks up where Dead Hearts have left off
