about

Dusk Meridian Santa Cruz, California

Dusk Meridian originally formed in 2004 under the name Seraphate. Various lineup changes and demo recordings later, this self-titled debut EP has been sitting ready since October 2012 for no apparent reason. It's available now, though.

Track Name: Temptation, Destruction
To the fire light, set for the fight.
No reason or innocence guiding the mind.

Banished from trust,
Fallen again in our eyes.
Just another set of lies left to hide.

Nothing left but a shred of disguise,
Fallen apart to the song of knives.
Birthed in line for destruction of sight,
Held alone under comfort of night.

Night, in another realm of
Falling. Flying. Lighting,
In the seas of reality,
Drowning. Breathing. Striking
At the moon.

Falling. Flying. Lying,
In the seas of reality,
Drowning. Breathing. Crying,
For you're banished from trust,
Fallen again in our eyes.

Just another set of lies left to give,
To deceive; to buy.
Temptation. Destruction. Pieces of life.

Nothing left but a shred of disguise,
Fallen apart to the song of knives.
Birthed in line for destruction of sight,
Held alone under comfort of night.
Track Name: Give in to the Dream
Once again, your existence is barred from any
Hope of relief from that which you wish you could be.
Passions inform us of the purpose locked within our souls
Do not run from this discovery.

Animalistic intentions will bury the righteous
And waken the lies of the lost unto life.

Raise your eyes and awaken the strength.
Take to the skies and unleash the passion tide.
Fly. Fly.

Once again, reminiscence takes back your will to
Go and be free from all that you never could be.
Nothing withholds the truth from hitting our minds but ourselves.

Give in to the dream.
Better than life, it holds you tight.

I would hold you forever, never letting go
For fear you would be taken from me.
I would hold you forever, and dwell upon your voice;
The last thing I hear when I close my eyes
I'll remember you for all of eternity,
And teach all the angels songs about you.
And when the moon comes out in the night of the earth,
I'll keep you warm and keep you safe from harm.

Show me reality. I'm trapped on the wrong side of the outside.
Call for clarity. Take me from the hell that you call home.

Raise your eyes and awaken the strength.
Take to the skies and unleash the passion tide.
Fly. Fly.

Give in to the dream.
Give in to the dream.

I would hold you forever, never letting go
For fear you would be taken from me.
I would hold you forever, and dwell upon your voice;
The last thing I hear when I close my eyes
I'll remember you for all of eternity,
And teach all the angels songs about you.
And when the moon comes out in the night of the earth,
I'll keep you warm and keep you safe from harm.
Track Name: Broken Wings
Soon you'll see, sweet angel
You are a dying breed
But you're captivated in our time of need
For peace.

Golden laced, with silver
Affinity, to be
Our guiding light that shines too bright to see
Or be.

Trapped and tied by winter's frozen stare, you'll find
Her eyes will hold you down.
Cold, her heart controls the passing time
So you will never fly again.

Chained and bound, her ice
Will keep you without a sound;
The fire in our hearts will set you free
You'll see.

Trapped and tied by winter's frozen stare, you'll find
Her eyes will hold you down.
Cold, her heart controls the passing time
So you will never fly again.

Last, as if to prove she owns your soul,
You can't lift off with broken wings.

Trapped and tied by winter's frozen stare, you'll find
Her eyes will hold you down.
Cold, her heart controls the passing time
So you will never fly again.
Track Name: Rancor
Will I ever learn to see through the lies?
Through the web you've woven before my eyes?
All that you've done to me
Crosses lines you should never have crossed.
You should pray.

I have succumbed to a new kind of hate.
You will not feel so safe
When you find yourself here when you wake.

Forget the morning light. You sleep well tonight.
You'll need your rest.
You will fall.

All the bitterness inside my heart is born from you.
Never doubt the powers of the slighted one.
Don't forget to look behind your back
The edge of truth is coming.

You don't deserve to live.
You will regret the night. Burn.
You don't deserve to live.

All the bitterness inside my heart is born from you.
Never doubt the powers of the slighted one.
Don't forget to look behind your back
The edge of truth is coming.
Track Name: Edge of Truth
There was once a time when I truly believed.
You stole that piece of life from me.
The veil of innocence has fallen from your face;
You have no shield for the real world.
Falling to the edge is subjective,
But the pieces never last;
They're all torn down.

I always wanted you to be free,
But you never lived up to what I could see
I never told you what to dream
But maybe you wanted to smother me.
Now it's all in the past, where forever we'll dwell
And you lie alone, in your private hell.
But maybe once our voices break through,
There will be no fear at the edge of the truth.

Some day, I'll find another place to put my faith
Not that it matters, it's lost on you.

I always wanted you to be free,
But you never lived up to what I could see
I never told you what to dream
But maybe you wanted to smother me.
Now it's all in the past, where forever we'll dwell
And you lie alone, in your private hell.
But maybe once our voices break through,
There will be no fear at the edge of the truth.
Track Name: To All Yet Unborn:
Every misdirection will come around in time.
When truth is a subjective thing you cannot expect
Anyone will listen when all you speak are lies
The spell will break, and when it does, you'll find
There's nowhere to run
Now is the time to face the wrath of the machine you've created.
Watch as the wall of the truth that you designed crumbles.
Now the only thing that's left to blame is your own negligence.
I hope for your sake that you've made your peace
With whatever you think will save your soul.
You're done for.

Look not here for answers we'll make you realize
The time for talk is over now, the past will not just
Change to fit your purpose; the water's running red.
Now all the flies drawn to your lies
Convince us we must
Stand up, for the truth is gone.
We can't continue to live this lie.
Pure dreams come without strings attached.
This is your undoing, brought by your own hand.

And come what may,
At least we can say we stood by our beliefs.
What of you?

Stand up, for the truth is gone.
We can't continue to live this lie.
Pure dreams come without strings attached.
This is your undoing, brought by your own hand.
