about

The Glass of Fashion / The Mold of Form

“There’s a tension running through..., a dark embrace of anxiety and moodiness that feels keenly of the moment.” - Guillermo Castro, Immersive Atlanta (immersiveatlanta.com/video-hard-candy-is-this-anything/)

“Challenges the listener at times with its smart harmonies that can sound almost like dissonance….the overall vibe is mesmerizing and nothing short of stunning.” - Elke Nominikat, glamglare (glamglare.com/music/2016/11/26/song-pick-hard-candy-in-the-city/)

"It’s like detached apathy encrypted in the smooth, easy-listening disguise of pure, dragging, lo-fi garage-rock; equipped with hazy vocals, rolling riffs and subtle syncopation." - Mariana Dias, Too Much Love (toomuchlovemag.com/2017/02/hard-candy-true-descenders/)

Track Name: In the City
In the city
The tribal city
Last chance to take your slice if you ever thought you could
Depleted karma
Bullshit drama
Dead-end rides and life has never felt so good

In the city
Beguiling pity
Spent attempts to testify, a name engraved in wood
The ancient herding
Betrays the girding
Of thoughts and dreams and schemes in tomes misunderstood
In the city
The tribal city
Last chance to take your slice if you ever thought you would
Depleted karma
The bullshit drama
Blind-alley rides and life has never felt so good

Acting out on a corollary
Nothing out of the ordinary...

In the city
The tribal city
Token themes may seem implausible.
Track Name: Fire Away
Fire away
Don't hesitate
There is nothing to think over
Got a real chance of coming up roses

Got a real chance of coming up roses

Now that I call the shots
Here's a shot in the dark
Look out! We're taking over
Still, I'm caught up in the clover
Am I merely striking the poses?
Is there no real chance of coming up roses?
Track Name: Catacomb Saints
Skeletal martyr
Bejeweled harbinger
Result of a life that grew ever harder
Your denied wealth is delivered in death
You're inconveniently proletariat
Unbind your faith from humanity
Tie your hopes to eternity
Stone walls will hold you
Tattered robes will enfold you

See outside through your diamond eyes
Sky so blue and clouds so white
Throngs of truth-seekers and flickering screens
Hypnotized and paralyzed by your flashing rings
A sword of light pierces the dark
The stone rolls aside
Reborn
Restart
Track Name: True Descenders
Heaven sent then torn apart
Hell-bent to play the part
They'll always fall for the written word
It takes a genius
To outwit convenience
Who'll never fall for the written word

I'd never change my path
To score an autograph
Why, I'd never fall for the written word
It does not make much sense
To offer recompense
To those who'll fall for the written word
Track Name: Needle Coming Down
It seems like a while that I've been beating on these dials
The glass has turned to spiderwebs of ice
My little finger is broken and the seals have started smoking
The bolts are rattling all night

I think the needle is coming down

There's mud on the glass and blood on the grass
The sun is bursting in the sky
The arm is shattered with everything that mattered
There's no need to say it twice

I think the needle is coming down
Track Name: Shooting Pain Shooting Star
Shooting pain, shooting star
Shot down on on the boulevard
Unrepentant descendant
Intermittent defendant
All that still remains of a showbiz name

Falling short going too far
An ectomorph in a muscle car
Intermittent defendant
Unrepentant descendant
All that still remains of a showbiz name
Track Name: The Curse Within
For Loren there is no doubt
About the ways and the means of the screams and shouts
In the end it's just more sound
That is not worthwhile to let out loud
I've got the curse within
But it's not yet close enough to the end
I've got the curse within
But it's much too soon to let the fun begin
Track Name: HC's Eyes
It comes as no surprise after all this time
It's still so easy picking out the lies and the fools
There's a time to laugh and a time to cry
Just don't call it South Central Georgia's blues

Clouds are gathering over Walker Street
A restless crowd springs to it's feet
It's so clear in everyone's mind
In hushed whispers they speak of the time
When Hard Candy came down from the mountain
And tossed the tablets in the court house fountain
Without a thought or care
And then shrugged off the stares

Could you fill the shoes forever after you
Had to see the flies crawl on HC's eyes
Could you write the book if you had to look
At all their heinous crimes and their alibis

Clouds are gathering over Walker Street
A restless crowd springs to it's feet
It's so clear in everyone's mind
In hushed whispers they speak of the time
When Hard Candy came down from the mountain
And tossed the tablets in the court house fountain
Without a thought or care
And then shrugged off the stares
Track Name: Bandy Together
In single file watch them falling in line
As we bandy together
In single file watch them fall in behind
As we bandy together
In single file watch them stepping in time
As we bandy together
Mile after mile in unified stride
In single file watch them falling in line
As we bandy together
In single file watch them stepping in time
With measured steps they walk in line
Track Name: Is This Anything?
Sea to shining sea
If you can't swim, then go ahead and sink
Deep
Too deep asleep to dream
If you can swim,
Is this anything to me?
