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: Deimos
When I let my walls come down
I'll start building them up again to
hide my naked and motionless hollow skin.
I am less than skin and bone,
I am pestilence filling your home,
I'm your attic bound rattling ghost.
I'm living up in your rafters,
I'm in between laughter,
I'm cracking your plaster,
i'm eating apples from Eden
and spitting the seeds in
the gears of your rattling brain.
And if you ever let me in,
I'll start packing your wrinkles with salt
I'll set fire to your blistering irises.
When I went to kiss your lips,
I felt part of me starting to slip
at the thought of you breathing the air with me.
When I hold my child tight
I see some of myself in his eyes
and I know that I hadn't the right to anything at all
I'm living up in your rafters,
I'm in between laughter,
I'm cracking your plaster.
I'm eating apples from Eden
and spitting the seeds in
the gears of your rattling brain.
I told myself that all I wanted was someone who wanted me
I'm wanted now and all I wants to be alone.
Away from all this wanting and responsibility
If I go down I won't be taking you with me.
Track Name: Phobos
This is what my father said the lightning poured from the side of his head
"won't you set the hunter's trap and then collapse, a heart attack."
Bullets speckled over every consonant he spoke,
he hefted smokey oaken arms to crush these broken open barns.
Holding onto every millipede that I could carry home with me
turned out to be akin to turning matches into ashes into heat.
Hold on tight, aim, ignite.
The steel begins to pull itself away from where we are
I feel my skeleton exposed to every corner of the bar.
I was drinking everything that I could fit into my palm
it was more appealing than me dealing with the fact that everything is gone.
Doing what I want while getting back up on my feet
is like i'm trying to turn matches into ashes into heat.
Hold on tight, aim, ignite.
