about

THIS ALBUM IS A TASTER:
For more music like this, go to:
newjerusalemproject.bandcamp.com

3 drum kits, a few fuzz pedals and a whole lot of shouting.
2 and a half years in the making, with numerous creative direction changes, New Jerusalem was originally intended to be Refused-ish, but turned out being something very different.
A little bit punk rock, a little bit experimental, a lot of drum and percussion overdubs and more voice breaks that I would like to admit to.

Track Name: Turning Back (Part 1)
I use these simple words
To make myself so clear
Transparent to the core
The reason I am here
I pray these shallow prayers
I seek the easy path
Thank God I'm learning quick
Thank God I'm turning back
Track Name: What Seems Right To Man, Is Usually Wrong To Woman
This the end of the road
Yeah
This is the end of the line
Yeah

Knuckles are bleeding
People left standing
Things worth repeating
Are worth demanding
The right to a fair trial
The right to dismiss it
There must be a reason
For all of this

All the rage in this empty world
Could never stop never stop, never stop
The written word

Hold me close tonight
Cause if it feels okay well then it must be right
Have you got some, can you make some sense?
Hold me close tonight
Cause we're all still here and we're still alive
Have you got some, can you make some sense?

Yeah
Think this, think this, think this through again
What, you, want.

I've been watching the world burn
For some time. Will it ever learn?
Track Name: Car Full Bee Tray All
You talk big but you don't fight fair
You want in but you just don't share
Record this, your fist in my mouth
Call me a dentist whilst I spit teeth out
You talk big but you don't fight fair
You want in but you just don't share
Record this, your fist in my mouth
Call me a cancer cause you cut me out

You dish it out but you never receive
Cafe bee tray all as your heart starts to heave
You pay the bills and you live days with ease
From up on your throne, as Queen of the Sleeze

Are you a store, cause you're selling out?
Are you like this when there's no one about?
You pulled the strings to get what you want
And walked away from where you came from

You serve it up but you'll never repent
Your home in Hell is paid for by rent
You sit alone in the dark eating worms
You should've put on your glasses and read all the terms

Get me the the cheque, cause I'm checking out!
Track Name: When Everything Is Alright, Nothing Is Okay
All my fellow sinners, raise your…glass

Everything is okay, nothing is all alright
Let's give up on hope
Let's give up on us
When everything is okay, nothing is ever right
When everything is unseen, nothing is out of sight

Let's re-write the definitions, of what is good and bad
We'll swap them around, and force them to bow
Ain't our plan so grand?
Everything's not okay, nothing has been alright
We're all drinking up, from our poised cup
Complaining the night's too bright

So where does the line start, where does it stop?
So where does the mind start and the heart stops?

As the night turns to day
And your hearts start to break
What happened to the innocence we had?
When the daylight arrives
Wipe the sleep from your eyes
You'll might see the life you never lived
Track Name: Black Cloud
Throw fits like knives across a crowded room
Packed like a freight train, no where to move

Rapture my soul, departed my heart
Rupture my lungs, stopped into start

Hold me still and prepare my soul
There is a black cloud coming just to swallow me whole
I pray you
Hold me still and cleanse me of sin
My Father told me you would come back again
Track Name: Deny Me
Does a song write itself?
God use me.
Make them squirm.
Can a car drive itself?
You're sure
Just reconfirm

Last time I checked
Things that looked designed
Were.
Last time I checked
Things that looked planned
Were.

Deny me, deny yourself.
Deny yourself, deny what else?
Track Name: Fall For Anything
Please don't try to stop me now
I'm trying to escape this town of little people little thinkers
Light weight drunkards, small time drinkers
You think you're smart with fragile hearts and
Glass for bones and liberal arts
You sleep awake, a nightmare starts
These fragile bones and bleeding hearts

You gotta stand for something
Or you'll fall for anything
You gotta stand for something
Or you'll fall for anything
Or you'll fall for anything

I'll bide my time until you buy
Sometime until you pay some kind
Of fine for falling out of line
Until I finally speak my mind
Track Name: Faith In The Little Things
Hope in a hopeless mess
Find peace in emptiness
Truth for these final days
Blacks in the whites not grays
Hope in a hopeless place
1st in the human race

Faith in the little things
Faith in the bigger things

Keep your spin for the toy tops never spun
Keep your spin, keep your spin
It was never about a choice. 
It was always about covering up

Keep your spin for the papers
Keep your spin, keep your spin
It was never about choice
It was always about the louder voice

CHORUS:
This won't save lives
But might save mine
There is still time
Choose truth, choose life
Track Name: Black Cloud (Reprise)
Hold me still and prepare my soul
There is a black cloud coming just to swallow me whole
I pray you
Hold me still and cleanse me of sin
My Father told me you would come back again
Track Name: Where Is God?
I keep keep keep hearing the same old arguments
I keep keep keep hearing the same old same old

Circular reasoning
Straw man arguments
Seriously guys
Are we all still accidents?
Let me get this straight
Love is the law?
Let me get this straight… 

CHORUS:
We're painted pictures on bathroom stalls
No less a masterpiece than what we were before
We're painted pictures on bathroom stalls
No less a masterpiece than when we were drawn

Logical fallacies
Repeat sins of Hubris
As you chip away
At blocks of the universe
Circular reasoning
Name calling arguments
Is this your science?
Your arm chair politics

Where is God?
Not in the classroom
Not in the courtroom
Not in the church
Where is God
When disaster strikes?
You call out his name
When reality bites
Where is God
When you push him away?
You deny his existence
Them blame him for pain
Where is God? I think you know
Track Name: Turning Back (Part 2)
I use these simple words
To make myself so clear
Transparent to the core
The reason I am here
I pray these shallow prayers
I seek the easy path
Thank God I'm learning quick
Thank God I'm turning back
