ATTENTION SYSTEM Atlanta, Georgia

They are dirty, danceable and full of the quirky guitars and blasting dance beats that critics and fans alike expect from this Atlanta stand-out.

Track Name: Solar Crisis
SOLAR CRISIS

Cease Fire!

Some may call these days of zero
Some may call us Dead At Sunrise
Fear broadcasting on the radio
That comes to no surprise
And all the thoughts they portray
Subliminal morology
With no description this time online

And the crowd still screams and jumps around
While the lights they spin with her ups and downs
As she recalls transmissions
Regrets and wrong decisions
She walks among the streets without a sound
And never told to “Hold Fire”

Cease Fire!

The evidence is on the table
Shielded from the harsh daylight
Analyze what’s on the video
They can’t believe their eyes
They called the shots, before she came
But no one stopped her
When the reasons changed
To get the mission offline in time

And the crowd still screams and jumps around
While the lights they spin with her ups and downs
As she recalls transmissions
Regrets and wrong decisions
She walks among the streets without a sound
And never told to “Hold Fire”

Communication Crisis!
Over And Out

But never told to “Hold Fire!”
Track Name: Lack Of Friction
LACK OF FRICTION

They shut down the civil guards and asked us all to just stay aware
But as for us man, I don’t think we’ve ever cared…You know what I mean?

Can I get a point of Reference?
And by no means, we need know nonsense
Now tell me how you call that evident?
On the secret side of things
You got it? You got the message?
So, you know our times been wasted
Now put down your armed resistance
But don’t forget the things you’ve seen

Cause No One here believes it

It’s been several days since we’ve gone Off The Record
We’re not alone
Are our routines a loss of time?
What lies beyond the other side?

It’s your Rival, so sound off the warning!

Can I get a Witness?
Instead of acting out in defense
Don’t get caught up in their business
Or become fatalities
Come on! Let’s stop pretending
That results aren’t always pending
Kick-start the drive and start complaining
Guilt requires apologies

But No One here believes it

It’s been several days since we’ve gone Off The Record
We’re not alone
Are our routines a loss of time?
What lies beyond the other side?

It’s your Rival, so sound off the warning!

There’s this Lack Of Friction that stalls the transmissions

Carry on. Carry on like before. Like before we were overthrown.
Because the further we get from the past, it reveals itself tomorrow.
Eyes on the prize like the specialist lies. While the degenerate’s smile lights the fire, embers react in variation.
But you’re not giving up on that engine, for there’s nothing but time. And any other procedures, minus the accident, will not keep the Soul in tact.
So Come One, Come All. There’s a new faceless act.
And this act does not compare to the lack of its facts.
Track Name: Chasing Rabbits
Chasing Rabbits

They hide in secrecy
Here lies emergency
They’ve worked to hard to find, Reality
There are these Cameras in the night
That photograph our lives
There’s something about this time I fear

I’ll take the first one out with me
I’ll take the others then you’ll see
I get this silence in my head
Don’t break this silence or you’re dead

Chasing Rabbits in the night
Some things never quiet escape

Drown emergency
Why hide uncertainty
When they will override, Reality
There are these mirrors that define
The likeliness of crime
There’s something that’s not balancing here

I slipped off balance and didn’t’ fall
I felt the danger of it all
I’ve put this pattern in my head
Gotta break this pattern or I’m dead

Chasing Rabbits in the night
Some things never quiet escape

Chasing Rabbits in the night
When nothing feels right

GO! GO!

When all those pictures on the wall
Resemble danger down the hall
Will all these cameras catch it all?
Well that’s the danger of it all

Chasing Rabbits in the night
Cause nothings ever quite the same
Track Name: Broadcast Errors
Broadcast Errors

I live outside the comfort zone of militant reply
Several better days are just around the bend
When you’re gambling on words and finding comfort in their lies
In the satisfying secret lives that we’ve been living
And the more the hour-hand just keeps speeding up our time
The longer we just sit and wait for some uniting bind

Did you hear that broadcast?
Broadcast Errors in desperate times

In time, they fear that someday we’ll all go rogue

This time they’re taking chances over your life and of mine
How simple-minded some of you can live
The conscious cannot shake this growing perilous device
When apologies greet like enemies with a bullet between eyes

Did you hear that broadcast?
Broadcast Errors in desperate times

In time, they fear that someday we’ll all go rogue
Track Name: Incoming
Incoming

I killed a Hipster
Did that sound sinister?
My thoughts have blistered
Since skipping Med’s at dinner

But over time I’ve seen ya, I’ve seen ya
I said, over time I’ve seen ya…HA HA HA
Stumbling to the side
Creating your own demise

Prescriptions stack when Angels slack
Lines distract from where you want to go

They’re Incoming! Here come the lights
Lights have come for me…Now you all will see

I killed a Hipster
Righteous reflector
Rejecting Drifters
And gathering failed efforts

Cause over time I’ve seen ya, I’ve seen ya
I Said, over time I’ve seen ya…HA HA HA
Stumbling to the side
Creating your own demise

Prescriptions stack when Angels slack
Lines distract from where you want to go

They’re Incoming! Here come the lights
Lights have come for me…Now you all will see
Track Name: The Suspect
The Suspect

The overhead light sways like a pendulum scythe
Back from the wrong to the right
Just after midnight
They’re closing in
And the sidewalk seems to narrow again
Like departure from the mind
But I regress
They’re banging on the table again
Broken like an exhausted friend
Who’s words could bury you alive

Now I know what you’re trying to find
You know you’re wasting time
You’re wasting time

You got nothing on me! Nothing on me

Am I not The Suspect? Not The Suspect, No?!
Am I not The Suspect, Not The Suspect?
Because the last time that I checked
I’ve got to run around, run around
Dressed to the nines in a bullet-proof vest

Where were you last night?
And the question seems to come back again
And everything you’ve seen is not where you’ve been
But you’re not broken enough to lie
In your defense
You’re protected by the consequence
You new the Signal and you knew it’s intent
But still you carry out your lines

Now I know what you’re trying to find
You know you’re wasting time
You’re wasting time

You got nothing on me! Nothing on me

Another plan, another place
Another check-point convoy
Don’t give in

And that’s the facts


Am I not The Suspect? Not The Suspect, No?!
Then get off my back right now!
Track Name: Parametric
Parametric

One hiding place is all that we need
Under the bridge pinned down by the siege
And they’re always watching week by week
Millions disguised as spies and thieves
With the intent that’s on going
One more complication

The Parametric scheme
Darkness fills the street
Detectives on the lead
Clues surface underneath

You're not so innocent
They’ve taken you over
You look so deviant
Dancing across the floor

They wanna take us all down
We gotta turn this around
For us to get out of sight

A subtle mistake is all that we need
To hide in the shadowed lights of the free
And I've heard the darkness whispering
Millions replaced by body thieves
All of these warnings echoing
One more complication

The Parametric scheme
Darkness fills the street
Detectives on the lead
Clues surface underneath

You're not so innocent
They’ve taken you over
You look so deviant
Dancing across the floor

They wanna take us all down
We gotta turn this around
For us to get out of sight

And in this one last complication
We can’t confine ourselves again
And in this one last complication
We've got to find an end to turn this around
Track Name: Survival Unknown
SURVIVAL UNKNOWN

If we survive
We’ll have the time of our lives
And if we survive
We’ll have untied all their binds

The suspicion and the mind will take you down the streets at night
Reporting on the way, why the daylight never seems to break
But we know these white lights
And we know in mid-flight
Announcements counter the way to better days
Like you’re broken on your back
But with a shot of light (to keep us alive)
Attach adaptable life (to keep us alive)
All the pressures unwind (to keep us alive)
When the questionings attack
Cause we’re not fine

They know that If we survive
We’ll have the time of our lives
And if we survive
We’ll have untied all their binds

And they know they’re white lies (keep us alive)
And we know that inside (to keep us alive)
These are better days
Unknown and frayed but survival’s still in tacked
And with a shot of light (to keep us alive)
Attach adaptable life (to keep us alive)
All the pressures unwind (to keep us alive)
Without the questions, without the questions and lies

Without the questions, questions and lies

Survival Unknown

But we know that, If we survive
We’ll have the time of our lives
And if we survive
We’ll have untied all their binds

If we survive, we’ll have the time of our lives!
