THE HART OF SOUND

The hArt of Sound is the surreal alternative/electronic/rock brain child of Colin Hart.  It's a swirling mix of the rawness of Nine Inch Nails, the delicate space of Radiohead, the saccharine melodies of Hozier, and the driving momentum of Muse.  It's a broad spectrum of a finely tuned balance of emotions that he is chasing; wanting to capture everything from the lowest of lows, to highest of highs.  He accomplishes this through the use of clever songwriting, inventive sounds, and intentional lyrics.  It all gets wrapped up in a tight and lean package that holds a powerful song inside.

DESERT ROSE

Lyrics

Mama said that I was gold

Always done like I was told

Heed the knell of my iron bell

and I haven't sinned since I was six years old

But in this rag town rodeo

I'm running from them bull-frog bulls

Cinnamon swirls

through a wasteland world

Where it's been scores

since nothin's grown

It hit me like a stone

Oh

It me like a stone

Oh the Desert Rose

Cryin' tears of the sun

Oh pray for snow

Dyin' dead in the sun

Oh the Desert Rose

If I gave up my crown of thorns

Said, "fuck it all I'm growin' horns"

I'd still be out here wandering

and it wouldn't change a God damn thing

But I will find that Desert Rose

No sense of self no sense of soul

So beautifully

Paradoxically

Growin' out here on the dust and bones

It hit me like a stone

Oh

It me like a stone

Oh the Desert Rose

Cryin' tears of the sun

Oh pray for snow

Dyin' dead in the sun

Oh the Desert Rose

Desert Rose

it grows and grows

Dust and bones

On the dust and bones

Oh the Desert Rose

Cryin' tears of the sun

Oh pray for snow

Dyin' dead in the sun

LOST DOGS AND LONELY HEARTS

Lyrics

Waving Flags of

Saving grace

Blowing proud for better days

Save the masses

One by one

Still your kingdom has not come


My love is on the table

And I’ve made enough for two

I’m sorry that I’m not able

To turn it all around for you

I do the only thing I can

I hold out my hand

Oh I hold out my hand to you


Well Mother Mary

could show her face

but in yourself is where you need the faith

Sanctuary

By the fire place

In the cradle of its warm embrace

Oh tonight I give you my bed

I don’t mind I’ll take the floor instead


My love is on the table

And I’ve made enough for two

I’m sorry that I’m not able

To turn it all around for you

I do the only thing I can

I hold out my hand

Oh I hold out my hand to you


When you look to the skies and you’re feeling

That promises have let you down

Rest assured that I will be there

To pick you up off of the ground

Oh why's it gotta be this way

That promises let us down

So it don’t mean much to say

That I won’t ever let you down


My love is on the table

And I’ve made enough for two

I’m sorry that I’m not able

To turn it all around for you

Lost Dogs and Lonely Hearts

Just lick your scars

They soon will heal

Shelter from the dark

And falling stars

You're welcome here

Storm Clouds

SHOCKWAVES

Lyrics

Anesthesia’s kicking in

Going dim

Force-fed sour self-sedations

A billion pillbox supplications

Psychosocial comet creep

Spider freak

Paranoiac in pajamas

Sterile white-wall panorama

 

I’m flying high on a magic carpet ride

I am the wind

I am the sky

 

No I don’t want another dose

But I think I’m contagious

Patient Zero

Shockwaves bringing me down

bringing me down

bringing me down, down, down

And when they come and then they go

Atomic grenades just

Rain down on my soul

Shockwaves bringing me down

bringing me down

bringing me down, down, down

 

K.O. coma knock me out

For the count

Black-eyed consciousness revival

Closed fist death grip on survival

Circuits underneath my skin

Plug me in

My hardwired electrocution

Brings high voltage absolution

Smoke me like your dying breath’s cigarette

And just breathe me in

 

I’m flying high on a magic carpet ride

I am the wind

I am the sky

No I don’t want another dose

But I think I’m contagious

Patient Zero

Shockwaves bringing me down

bringing me down

bringing me down, down, down

And when they come and then they go

Atomic grenades just

Rain down on my soul

Shockwaves bringing me down

bringing me down bringing me down, down, down

 

Am I king am I creator?

The super-sonic bastard savior?

Am I master am I maker

Of the bed in which that I sleep?

Yes I am the king and I am creator

The super-sonic bastard savior

I am master and I am maker

Of the dogs that lay at my feet

 

No I don’t want another dose

But I think I’m contagious

Patient Zero

Shockwaves bringing me down

bringing me down bringing me down, down, down

Shockwaves bringing me down

bringing me down

bringing me down, down, down

Shockwaves bringing me down

bringing me down

bringing me down, down, down, down, down

Mountainous Landscape

HAMMER OF THE GODS

Lyrics

I was born 10,000 years ago

I am no chosen

child of the stone

But I’ve seen cities

and rulers rise and fall

It always happens

though once they stood so tall

To find the humor in the silence of the night

Is to know the world’s ceaseless roar


The hammer of the gods spoke

A thunder throw

Over the land where dark horses roam

It came right down on the edge of the earth

A heavy handed ray of light

Tidal waves touch the sky

And explode

Flooding the land that was born to die

We all just washed away

and We'll all just wash away


Once a lion

Fell to my shattered sword

His final act

A hollow breathless roar

I shot the arrow

across the virgin sky

the soaring murder

to sound the battle cry

Across the canyon

Of luscious laurel lies

the city lights

Like frozen fire flies

I’ve lived and died a thousand times again

Who knows now where we go

'Cause I just still don't know


The hammer of the gods spoke

A thunder throw

Over the land where dark horses roam

It came right down on the edge of the earth

A heavy handed ray of light

Tidal waves touch the sky

And explode

Flooding the land that was born to die

We all just washed away

We'll all just wash away


Horses roam

Running from home

Oh dark horses roam

Tidal waves

The end of days

Oh the tidal waves

Long Empty Road

NO ONE FROM NO WHERE

Lyrics

I’m just no one from no where

No where’s where I’m from


Yes I’m no one from now where

I am of no name

A tangible nothing

On a spatial plane


In big empty spaces

I met the abyss

It called to come closer and


Echoes of the constellations

Rang inside of me


Oh and it said


Yesterday has come to pass and I think I’m gonna move on

Oh Today has come at last but tomorrow’s already gone 

But tomorrow’s already gone


All of the aura so formlessly formed

Darkness abstractions

I entered the storm


Unification of creation had made

My being consumed to the tempest crusade


And supine wonders of the shape shifting clouds

Vacant reflections of 

how 

I Feel 

Right 

Now


I’m just no one from no where

No where’s where I’m


Yesterday has come to pass and I think I’m gonna move on

Oh Today has come at last but tomorrow’s already gone 

But tomorrow’s already gone


Words on a western wind blew

To the east and fell to the silent day

Wayward the nothingness moved 

Void of reason 

Between the black and grey

What has just now become 

hopeless hoping

For into the strange I run


Yesterday has come to pass and I think I’m gonna move on

Oh Today has come at last but tomorrow’s already gone 

But tomorrow’s already gone
