lyrics

You used to be
A friend of mine
Now you’re someone
I don’t recognize

Can’t point north
You’ve lost your way
Can’t look no one
Straight in the face

You’ve lost your mind
You’ve lost control
Can’t decipher
Friend from foe

You’re overjoyed
You’re in ecstasy
But you just can’t face
Reality

Chorus
Stones in your brain
Can’t kill your pain
Wasting your life
I see you wasting away

Bleeding hearts
Keep you justified
Deep down you know
It’s just a lie

Contribute nothing
To society
Then you expect
My sympathy

Can’t shake it off
Can’t change your ways
Your habits and hang-ups
Always call your name

You’re paranoid
Can’t trust no one
It’s too late now
The damage is done

Chorus
Stones in your brain
Can’t kill your pain
Wasting your life
I see you wasting away

Bridge
It’s your life
The choice was yours
Now all you need
Is a little more

Vicious cycle
Without end
Never would’ve wished
That on you my friend

You used to be
A friend of mine
Now you’re someone
I don’t recognize

Can’t point north
You’ve lost your way
Can’t look no one
Straight in the face

You’ve lost your mind
You’ve lost control
Can’t decipher
Friend from foe

You’re overjoyed
You’re in ecstasy
But you just can’t face
Reality

Chorus
Stones in your brain
Can’t kill your pain
Wasting your life
I see you wasting away

Stones in your brain
Oh it can’t kill the pain
I see you wasting away

about

DEVICE Vancouver, British Columbia

DEVICE plays old-school heavy metal; the kind that makes no apologies, rooted in an era when irony didn’t exist.

From sixnoises.com:
“Think British Steel and Lightning to the Nations pulling a rusty blade on Heavy Metal Maniac and Kill ‘Em All, with Don’t Break the Oath and Balls to the Wall cackling with glee in the background.”

DEVICE have forged their sound around metal’s classic triumphs
