about

Sub Motion Dublin, Ireland

"One of the few new bands I would walk across the street to see." - Dave Fanning

"With the likes of Queens of the Stone Age and Foo Fighters having played sold out gigs in recent times, Ireland is ready for distorted guitars, heavy drums and heavy rock. One of these bands making a name for themselves over the past few years are Sub Motion" - Dublin Concerts ... more

Track Name: Dust To Dust
"Dust to Dust"

Maybe you were right,
You pointed and you stared me in the eye,
Uncomfortably smitten with the melancholic
Twinkle in your smile.
What’s your point of view,
It’s easier to judge and I’m not you,
I know you feel alone,
And I will not oppose cause you’ve been severed into two.

Perfect poised, sick paranoid.

Hear me crying out for help,
Inside we’re dying on this shelf,
Dust to dust, Dust to dust.
And eyes still follow me to bed,
You try to help it till it’s dead,
Dust to dust, Dust to dust.

Hurting you is hard,
You’re lucky you were born without a heart,
I’m not afraid of you,
But I’m afraid of everything we’ve ever been put through.
Hands behind your back,
And happy little bruises blue and black,
We’ll tell them that we’re fine,
Don’t cross the line,
But tell me are you satisfied with that.

Perfect poised, sick paranoid.

Hear me crying out for help,
Inside we’re dying on this shelf,
Dust to dust, Dust to dust.
And eyes still follow me to bed,
You try to help it till it’s dead,
Dust to dust, Dust to dust.

You were wrong,
You’re not a part of this,
And I’ll go on,
I’ve got the heart for this,
And all along,
I know you started it,
All along, and all along.

Hear me crying out for help,
Inside we’re dying on this shelf,
Dust to dust, Dust to dust.
And eyes still follow me to bed,
You try to help it till it’s dead,
Dust to dust, Dust to dust.
Track Name: We Won't Drown
“We Won’t Drown”

Tell me that I’m wrong,
I’ve been no good all along,
I never could belong.

Let this lie,
Rest your bones,
You don’t need me, You don’t need me.
The more I try,
The more I feel alone,
You don’t need me, You don’t need me.

Where’s the good in this great fall,
I never meant to make you crawl,
Or hurt your head at all.
Misled, leading you astray,
Don’t you look at me that way,
This love has had its day.

Let this lie,
Rest your bones,
You don’t need me, You don’t need me.

But we won’t drown if you say so,
Just take my hand and don’t let go,
What we started wasn’t perfect but we’re close.
I’ll hear you out,
We’re safe and sound,
Keep your head above the water,
All our doubts are going down.

Screaming on your knees,
Oh why can’t I ever see what’s meant,
To be will always be.

Let this lie,
Rest your bones,
You don’t need me, You don’t need me.

But we won’t drown if you say so,
Just take my hand and don’t let go,
What we started wasn’t perfect but we’re close.
I’ll hear you out,
We’re safe and sound,
Keep your head above the water,
All our doubts are going down.

Don’t you let this die.
Track Name: The Storm
"The Storm"

I’m so sick of the lies that you’re hiding,
Past the point of not even worth trying,
Oh so foolish to think I would back down,
Now you’re hoping I won’t close the door on you now.

Rising from the ash again,
I’ll be closing in,
Feel the storm begin.

Meet the devils and get well acquainted,
Now your best friends are only the tainted,
So you’d like to go sort out your problems,
I’d be grateful but that’s not an option.
Point your finger and stare at me coldly,
I’m a monster for leaving you lonely,
Well I’m sorry your heart doesn't lie here,
There’s a hole where my heart used to hide out of fear.

Rising from the ash again,
I’ll be closing in,
Feel the storm begin.

There’s a place where I can run and hide,
Leave me be you won’t take me alive,
And when you think you’re out alive,
You've got no place, nowhere to hide,
I creep behind your eyes,
You watch me brewing the storm in the back of your mind.

Rising from the ash again,
I’ll be closing in,
Feel the storm begin.
Track Name: Turn The Lights Out
“Turn the Lights Out”

Just a shred of life,
A ticking time bomb waiting to ignite,
But they can’t hurt you,
They can’t hurt you,
They can’t hurt you.
Like a shivered child,
I’m wide awake,
Just waking to survive,
But they can’t hurt you,
They can’t hurt you,
They can’t hurt you.

Cry your heart out,
Turn the lights out.

On a spinning wheel,
We’re turning endless,
What’s there left to feel,
But they can’t hurt you,
They can’t hurt you,
They can’t hurt you.
In the dead of night,
Drifting slowly,
Minds with too much time,
But they can’t hurt you,
They can’t hurt you,
They can’t hurt you.

Cry your heart out,
Turn the lights out.

Don’t you let them win,
Our friend the darkness,
Dying to let you in,
Well they can’t hurt you,
They can’t hurt you,
They can’t hurt you.
Tell them nice to leave,
We’re lying restless,
They won’t let us sleep,
But they can’t hurt you,
They can’t hurt you,
They can’t hurt you.

Cry your heart out,
Turn the lights out.
