Ashes fill the tray follow upon a carpet stained. Peeling paint a window clouded grey with a view of nowhere. You should have seen me then. Wish the boys around again called my name out loud for all to hear instead of faded glories. She says I’m dead on the inside and on the outside split apart at the seams. Seems the best days have slipped away. I wanna feel something almost anything. If my life was a book. It would be burned or banned, misunderstood. Collecting dust by someone else who has faired no better. Pages wrinkled with tears. Stained brown with drink and years. A book as thick as my skin…as thin as my blood for all to read it. She says I’m dead on the inside and on the outside split apart at the seams. Seems the best days slipped away from me. Life is but a fatal story. Go to the page that says the end. Shit I let loose to become this. There's no view left to see.

Repentance 03:31
In this black book through words you cannot read. The color of nightfall breathes again. Breathes again. The darkness, fear, will bring you light through pain and suffering. Suffering. Heathens. They made a dagger from Adam’s rib and cut out everything you believe. You climb, you climb passed the sun and the sky. A crown of thorns across your brow. You slide, you slide farther back down in time to wallow amongst yourselves. You will become the dust of the earth blown away. Blown away. Forgotten take my hand. Climb. He is waiting there. Waiting there. Repentance. They made a dagger from Adam's rib and cut out everything you believe. You climb, you climb passed the sun and the sky. A crown of thorns across your brow. You slide, you slide farther back down in time to wallow amongst yourselves. I give you all morality. May you believe in him. The one who bears the cross in this. Repent, Repent, Repent. They made a dagger from Adam’s rib cut out everything you believe. Even then repent repent. A crown of thorns splintering.

about

Council Records No. 41 (CR-41)

Dead on the Inside 7" EP available 12/1/23 on black or translucent violet vinyl. I will also have copies of the Extinction Burst EP on translucent emerald.

Portland’s AMUSEMENT features former members of FROM ASHES RISE, ARCTIC FLOWERS, and DEATHREAT playing a melodic, hook-driven style of music akin to bands like LEATHERFACE or DINOSAUR JR. Listening to the rough mixes of these tracks felt like discovering JAWBOX or HÜSKER DÜ before anyone even knew who they were. Incredibly competent songwriting that shows years of experience backed with passionate vocals that heave forth relevant lyrics that are firmly rooted in the foundations of hardcore.

This 2-song EP features Dead on the Inside b/w Repentance and will leave you wanting more…so look for the companion EP on Extinction Burst featuring two additional songs. Expect more from AMUSEMENT soon!
