about

the Koniac Net Mumbai, India

Influenced by bands like Swervedriver, Stills, French Kicks,Tokyo Police Club, the album is a mixed tape for the Indie music fan ... more

Track Name: (It's Alright) Farewell
It’s all right, it’s okay: we’ll look the other way
For the most, it went well: we said what we had to say
It’s all right. It’s all right

So we’re done; finished here
Although our words weren’t heard
Follow blind; lead astray
‘Cause you did not heed our words
It’s all right. It’s all right

When you don’t feel like falling again
Look on up to us for a way
Fold your hands and cry while you pray
“When will you save us? When o’ when?!”

Oh, how we pushed, but your pride…!
Nothing left to say but “goodbye”
Oh, you’re all on your own
No one here. Fend for yourself

Son, goodbye
Lord knows, how we really tried
Ma’am, god speed
It hurts us too, but it’s been agreed

It’s time for a change
It’s time for one last monsoon.

When you don’t feel like falling again
Look on up to us for a way
Fold your hands and cry while you pray
“When will you save us? When o’ when?!”

Oh, how we pushed, but your pride…!
Nothing left to say but “goodbye”
Oh, you’re all on your own
No one here. Child, fend for yourself!
Track Name: Maggie (A Song for Brad)
My friend, why are you sitting all alone?
Did that girl rend your heart again?
Did she shift you aside for a fresher site of eye?
You let yourself fold under her fix

Oh Maggie, did you leave my boy again (my boy again)?
Did you tare and feed away at him whole again (at him whole again)?

Tell me, how have you been taking it?
I’ve looked into your eyes and found despair
Did you lash out inside, or curse her so she’d die?
With all that you gave she still complained

(‘cause Maggie: )
He could have done it all for you
He would have brought the stars down
So that the heavens could envy

And maybe someday you would
See him the way you always should
To hear him call again
Pray that he sings again

Oh Maggie, did you leave my boy again (my boy again)?
Did you tare and feed away at him whole again (at him whole again)?
Track Name: This Time Around
This time I’m going to make it right
This time I’m going to save your life
Even if it leaves my soul debarred
Even if it tears my world apart

This time I’m going to get it right
This time I’m going to save our lives
Even if it stains and wears our hearts
Even if it tears us all apart!

You worry too much! (x2)
Your trial of me’s undone
Let me care for us

Last time to get all this right
Last try: please let me save your life
Even if it breaks my world apart
Even it if means we’ll tear apart!

You worry too much! (x2)
Your trial of me’s undone
Let me care for us

Back by tonight
No need for forgiveness
I’ve stood by your side and
Proclaimed

By morning light
We’ll be past this whole mess
You will thank me over and over
You will thank me over and over
You will grant mine closer
You will thank me over and over
Track Name: Divine Submersion
You said you had a revelation
Something to ride the wicked down
Here’s Delilah. Here’s Delilah
Leave, our faithful harbinger!

You said you would lead a revolution
Somehow these evil worlds still breed
Heaven must have lost again. Heaven must have lost again
Oooo, sanctuary scampered in haste

Everyone has gone
Track Name: Midnight's Children (h.b.m.)
One quick disease to cushion the flies
How come no one smells the breeze?
Orange, come through our green, white, and blue
The wheel’s still left out of these

Pray my friends:
Tell the gods all our worries
Candles and cigarettes: we each keep behind
A story now folklore, all read by the blind

So we pray!

Darkness descends, while brightness prevails
Crescent moons trim wrong beliefs
Decades of beige and khaki parades
But blood determines their age

Pray dear friends
The gods shall bless you in the end!
Confectionery treats and colours for each
But once the blow horn sounds, how they dye the streets!

So pretend!
While we pray
We pretend

We belong to the earth of our gods
We were born from the earth of our gods
We belong to the earth of our gods
We were born from the earth of our gods

We belong to the earth of our gods Plead for us!
We were born from the earth of our gods Pray for us!
Track Name: Demure
So, I’m just in here
Hanging out my skin to dry
Back six pages
Is when I abandoned my life

All that’s happened began…
Began with a lie
Erstwhile demure looked at…
Looked at askance

Redeem? I’ve shed my child away
Oh, I’ve shed my child away

So, could I leave here
And make it back to innocence?
Simper as I
Hold on to form of “then”

Regress to a start
For what it’s worth today
Prefer a steady route…
How the ardent change?

Redeem? I’ve shed my child away
Regain? I led my child astray
Redeem…?

I’d like,
To try and rearrange
(To) those days
Before the leap of lanes

Some day
I’d like to go home
(To) those days
Where I once roamed… where I once roamed

Take me back home
Where I once roamed
Track Name: Once, I Ruled By Myself
Wait, wait on here
Please don’t count it
I’m a little more than you have heard;
Much more than you’ve made up

From the ground to my teeth
And all that’s beneath
Do you twist and you mould
Open tales false and weak

But I’m not putting up,
No I’m not putting up
So cliché:
You could curb what rides the breeze

I sound like I’m right, But I could be wrong
I’m not sure anymore

These moves sure confuse My moments of truth
I guess I’m wrong… I’m not sure anymore

But I admit, oh I confess
I got caught up in my own mess
I’m just a man who thought he could
Rule all by himself (rule, all by himself)

The tangled fibers I once wore
One by one I untangle those
To revise all I’ve done
Now and forever more
I see good kindle like before…
I see good. Breathe
Track Name: Simple
A simple texture
For a different story
Instead of searching
Complicated… chords

You don’t have to try
To fit all you can
For them to clap and
Understand it… all

You don’t have to make it so rough
Just sit back and take it easy… take it easy

Realize you don’t have to impress anyone
Keep it simple: I’m sure it will work
Just keep it simple: I’m sure it will work

Stop thinking so hard
Take a step back
A single layer’s enough
Play another way
Track Name: Bricks
Look outside: a view of pouring rain
Keep wondering which of all my choices to blame
(I) Believe it was all of them
(I) Believe none at all made sense
I missed…

I might not be a man no more
Certainly not one to fight for
A place in the priced

My immaculate path
Should have done something full proof
Should have foreseen in my youth

There’s no turning back around
No winding back countdowns
Still in love with my Muses

Look outside: a view of pouring rain
Keep wondering which of all my choices to blame
Track Name: Anesthetic & the Withdrawal
Everyone seems to be having fun
I’m sitting here: I’m the only one
For the days that passed on by promising change
Like the sun that was to come, but never came

Lately I have seen some funny things
Like man who sells himself, limb from limb
And the world passes on by promising change
But I’m still sitting right here alone, estranged

I’m losing control: can’t take it all back
I’m losing control: can’t take it all back
I’m losing it all: assurance made off
I’m losing control… plain lost it all

Everyone seems to be having fun
I’m sitting here: I’m the only one

I’m losing control: can’t take it all back
I’m losing control: can’t take it all back
Plain lost it all! Plain lost it all!
I’m losing control: can’t take it all back!

Come another rain and wash us all
Backsliders to be baptized once more
Mould and bring us back to life, AMEN!
Build us up so we can slay again!

Everyone seems to be
Having their own silly fun
Am I the only one who sees:
These days are but marked and done
