about

Apres Pompeii Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Always forward, that is the mantra.
Apres Pompeii is currently entering a new era. Gospels is an ongoing project that will take form over the whole of 2013. With a full length album and seven EPs planned for the year, the path to its completion will undoubtedly be long and toilsome. This project’s focus is on the internal struggles and relationships that inform the way we interact with the world. ... more

Track Name: Luna
Luna

I once held your little brain,
just shy of a living thing,
but I’m so tired of living in vein
and I don’t really want to run away again.
I felt like a firefly,
I gave my mother’s light
I don’t really want to give it away again.

Tonight, I won’t be reeling in the light,
tonight, I’d rather watch it die.

With your hands in your pockets
and your feet on the ground
you don’t do a thing,
but you’re pulling me down.

Tonight, I won’t be reeling in the light,
tonight, I’d rather watch it die.
Tonight, I’m giving up the sky to night.
Tonight, I’m keeping it inside.

I’ve been a mirror all my life:
a tiny vessel for a greater light.
Stars refracted in my lungs,
well, who wouldn’t want to be the sun?
I don’t ever want to let it go again.

With your hands in your pockets
and your feet on the ground
you don’t do a thing,
but you’re pulling me down.

Endymion, I would rather watch you sleeping
You move too fast for my saucer eyes to follow
I mistook you for the shepherd boys naked in the fields.
So, fix your eyes on my breast and sway me lunar.

My love she pulls me but she’d rather move the waves
I offer freely but she only pulls away
My love she pulls me but she’d rather move the waves
I offer freely but she nightly fades away

My love I pull you, won’t you pull me like the waves
My love I pull you, won’t you catch me like the grave

I lost you in the night
Venus was too bright
Now I’m drowning
in her noxious waves

Endymion, I felt the water fill both of your lungs
I will crash on you.
