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: Io
I was the one with painted lips
an everlasting kiss, ah
I trembled with your fingertips.
You made me walk on solid ground
I grew addicted to the sound
of sunlight ringing off your crown.

You made me this way (I felt my fingers cake with mud)
You made me this way (I felt my belly course with blood)
I'm human firmament, please don't say it's permanent
You made me this way

I should have let you flutter by,
you and your ever watchful eye
I should have kept my legs locked tight.
I spend my days all running from
the daggered blame your fingers flung
my heavy feet gone moribund.

You made me this way (I felt my fingers cake with mud)
You made me this way (I felt my belly course with blood)
I'm human firmament, please don't say it's permanent
You made me this way
Track Name: Europa
You carried me away, on your back, on your back.

The ocean air and the bristling of your skin,
it comforts me, even though I'm leaving home.
You followed me till dawn, you followed me till dawn
to my window from the lawn.

You carried me away, on your back, on your back.

Your thieving hands wrapped around me in my bed,
my daddy weeps, wonders where his baby's gone.
You followed me from home, you followed me from home.
Come to press against my bones.
Track Name: Ganymede
You came to me at my window
You sang to me as you peeled off all my clothes.
I never saw the talons,
I never saw the feathers fly
I never saw the talons,
I never stopped to question why.

You're tearing me, I am paper in your teeth,
You're melting me, I am wax within your wings,
I never felt this needed,
I never really needed you,
I'm feeling so depleted,
but part of me's loving being used.

Break me down till I can't recognize me.
Track Name: Callisto
What is this lie i'm living?
I wake up and I am swimming.
A thousand stars are blinking through, but not me, not me.
What is this lie I'm living?

The lake around me is freezing.
An arrow through my chest, I'm bleeding.
My son loosed the piercing stone, but you strung the bow.
What is this lie I'm living.

I didn't ask for this, but I don't deserve much better.

Why don't these stars speak fire?
Why don't they call you liar?
You dropped me into snowy ground, you were done, you were done.
What is this lie I'm living?

I didn't ask for this, but I don't deserve much better.

Through this forceful egress,
you've made my body timeless.
I don't loathe the thought of you looking up at me.
What is this lie I'm living?
