about

Spirit Division Indianapolis, Indiana

We are Spirit Division. We play blues metal. Our guitarist shreds too much, our drummer plays too fast, and our bassist has started wearing a lei while playing onstage. We're pretty cool.

Track Name: Spirit Division
Deceived by the one I love
Clothed in the centaur's stain
The blood of the misleader
Is corrupting my veins
For one side is immortal
The other cannot die
Living in endless pain
I must go to the sky

Chorus:
Spirit Division
The living dead
Spirit Division
Humanity shed

The sun is shining high
Below is my shadow
Stacking the piles of wood
He knows where we must go
And so I go to the top
To take my final sleep
Flames lit on the foundation
To my body they leap

Chorus

Smoke rises in the air
From where I have been laid
One side under the earth
To join the other shades
The other flies above
As one of the divine
Living as one of the gods
This mortal life behind

Chorus
Track Name: Through the Rounds
Tell me where you've been
Tell me where you go
Tell me about the scars
That you refuse to show
I've seen you shed your skin
Putting on the pounds
Slipping through the bars
Going through the rounds

Chorus:
Oh, can you tell me girl
Why are you treating me this way
Oh, can you tell me girl
Why do I even stay

Tell me about the sin
The rivers leaves and snow
Chasing all the stars
The hookers and the blow
Do you think you'll win
Wherever you're bound
Step in the wrong car
You'll find you've been found

Chorus

You know what you're in
No longer in tow
It seems so bizarre
To reap what you sow
The next of your kin
Will not make a sound
Guided by Mars
You're pulled into the ground

Chorus
Track Name: Mountain of Lies
You are only visible
When you're in someone's way
Oh, believe what you are told
Every dog will have its day
No angel will ever appear
When you want out of the role
Not even the Devil is here
Wanting to take your soul

Answer questions they may ask
With a calm "everything's fine"
It is a comfortable mask
And nobody's fault but mine
Though the words bring alibis
And some may be smiled away
But a look envelopes the eyes
Begging them to please stay

Though my angel won't appear
I still have one friend
He's the one who keeps me here
When it seems I cannot mend
Apathy his spoken name
And the one that I must call
Though he is the one who'll claim
Of putting up my wall

Outro:
Count no man happy til he's dead
When he is free of pain at least
Up the Mountain of Lies you tread
Oh, see how they fall so fast
Track Name: Seven Years
Washed upon this rocky shore
What is this catacomb
It is a place where I'm cared for
Begging me to call it home
Hope for rest makes me comply
Wait until the coast is clear
More and more the waves roll by
And with them seven years

Though I know she cares for me
In the waves my tears fall forth
Undrying eyes strain to see
The island in the north
It is a place where I am king
With an undisputable rule
Always will the sirens sing
For I have become Fate's tool

For so long I've been with her
And I take what she will give
If I stay her prisoner
I will eternally live
Would you have a pampered life
In place of some great fame
Or would you take a life of strife
In search of your great claim

Outro:
Hold your head up high
So they can see your throat
Once more life passes by
This dark island remote
Track Name: Outside My Eye
Black dog within my dreams
A grim omen a threat
But that's not how it seems
For she was once my pet
Seeing my grandfather die
The memory of him I bare
And sometimes I wonder why
For I was never there

Hearing the strangest sound
Of chairs across the floor
Furniture is moved around
Knocking behind my door
Walking past the dark wood
A feeling I can't trace
I have never understood
The heat breathed in my face

Chorus:
Are the spirits I conceive
The ones that I knew
(Outside my eye)
Am I out to relieve
The pain that I've been through
(Outside my eye)
Never got to say goodbye
During my time with you
(Outside my eye)
But with you outside my eye
I never needed to
(Outside my eye)

Chorus
