Beyond his throne lie barren mountains War, Famine, Pestilence and Death But you keep summoning these notions That he is greater than any man To come before Who did you wrong When we were young And the days were long The coffin’s warm Your lover’s waiting with bated breath Bait & Switch You bought the ticket now take the ride Hook, line, sinker and my pride And I keep thinking I’ll do better But can a tiger change its stripes This isn’t fun Something’s wrong But we’re still young And the nights are long The coffin’s warm Your lover’s waiting with bated breath Bait & Switch The coffin’s warm Your lover’s waiting with bated breath Bait & Switch Your lover’s waiting for you to take the blame Pay no mind to the man behind the camera You’re the object of his affection And his cup runneth over With slow poison But life gets shorter every day The coffin’s warm Your lover’s waiting with bated breath Bait & Switch

What is your truth In a world of no absolutes What gives you the right To the natural order of life Here, we’re all shadows On the cave wall How strange the world looks to us now Where is your proof That the burden lies solely on you Were you ever really there Or did I just believe in you Here, we’re all shadows On the cave wall How strange the world looks to us now Here, we’re all shadows On the cave wall How strange we all look to ourselves Here, we’re all shadows On the cave wall Crawling out from the underground Came to catch the fall Here we’re all shadows On the cave wall Here We’re all here Here we’re all shadows On the cave wall Here We’re still here

Scratch my back and I'll scratch yours I'd jump off a bridge if you'd only jump first I'll be there to catch you I always fall faster I've got the bruises to prove it And I remember the last time The Holy Ghost Can’t keep you close Not anymore Not like I do But what hurts the most Is you won’t let go Of what was never inside you You came to me So take what you need You came to me For me Tonight Oh, the hypocrisy Do you remember the last time? This is the last time The Holy Ghost Can’t keep you close Not anymore Not like I do But what hurts the most Is you won’t let go Of what was never inside you No Do you remember the last time? The Holy Ghost Can’t keep you close Not anymore The Holy Ghost Can’t keep you close Not anymore Not like I do But what hurts the most Is you won’t let go Of what was never inside you No Do you remember the last time?

Wage war On apathy Disguised as entropy Defined by society’s expectations Your move Don’t atrophy This time it’s you and me No lie, I won’t ever let you let the bastards win The lock is broken Now we’re finally free The gates are open Death by honesty Wage war On apathy Disguised as entropy Defined by society’s lack of expectations The lock is broken Now we’re finally free The gun is smoking Death by honesty So what will you do with your freedom? If knowledge is power then why do I feel numb? The closer to happiness I get The more I come undone Face down the barrel Caught staring at the center of the sun I feel it deep in my marrow The truth hurts but enough is enough War on apathy

They paint the divine With an evil brush Nothing more Nothing less All we want Is that too much? Make amends Make excuses You know you can rely on the ones that you love who will take your abuses You know you can rely on me Make amends Make excuses We reach for a sign Branded, washed and in line Nothing more, nothing less Tell me where is the lie A faded image idolized Ancient wisdom’s back in fashion; bastardized Make amends Make excuses You know you can rely on the ones that you love who will take your abuses You know you can rely on me Make amends Make excuses There is no security There is no security Make amends Make excuses

Sad excuse for love, I know But true intimacy is when you feel most vulnerable So open up your void to me Open up nice and wide I'll fill you with kindness Open up your void to me Open up nice and wide I’ll fill you with kindness I'll fill you with lies My body is all I've got left to give Have at it do what you want with it My body is all I've got left to give Have at it do what you want with it Sad excuse for a life, I know One room, pullout, no vacancy No one will know when there’s nowhere to be So open up your void to me Open up nice and wide I'll fill you with kindness Open up your void to me Open up nice and wide I’ll fill you with kindness I'll fill you with lies My body is all I've got left to give Have at it do what you want with it My body is all I've got left to give Have at it do what you want with it Just do what you want with it Give me sight Rob me blind Make me see just to gouge out my eyes Take me lover take me home If you won’t have me Then no one else will Take me lover take me home Take me lover take me home My body is all I've got left to give Have at it do what you want with it

Desolate Decadence Your sickly sweet breath on my lips Effortlessly eating away This electric tumor burrowing inside me Decide Which one is right The gun or maybe the knife Decide how to excise this from my mind Decide Which one is right The gun or maybe the knife Decide what you want to feel used by Expertly insert yourself A poison I.V. that courses though me Just like this city Built on nothing This electric tumor burrowing inside me Decide Which one is right The gun or maybe the knife Decide how to excise this from my mind Decide Which one is right The gun or maybe the knife Decide what you want to feel used by Tonight Tonight Just like this city Built on nothing This electric tumor burrowing inside me Decide Which one is right The gun or maybe the knife Decide how to excise this from my mind Decide which one is right The gun or maybe the knife Decide, Decide, Decide!

You want excuses I’ve never had one When you’re mankind you just need a reason If this is what you wanted Go ahead you got it We just came to party So what are you waiting for Invite me in To lose yourself To the music To the beat Indulge the senses Invite me in When Oswald shot Kennedy He was insane But still we watch reruns Again and again and again We all stay glued to the screen While the killer takes aim “Hey mom, look! There goes pieces of the president’s brain!” So lose yourself To the music To the beat Indulge the senses Invite me in So lose yourself To the music What are you waiting for invite me in Gutted myself Again If only to feed my compulsions Mistaken for passion Everything I thought I wanted Gutted myself again And for fuckin’ what?

about

The culmination of one of the most impressive and conscientious slow-builds in modern metal, the debut full-length album from Vermont-based three-piece Ghastly Sound is here.

Following a three-year stretch which saw the band drop two colossal and genre-bending EPs and a ripsaw video single while appearing at heavy tastemaker festivals like New England Stoner and Doom Fest and Psycho Las Vegas, Ghastly Sound is now ready to unleash HAVE
A NICE DAY onto the heavy music landscape.

Recorded last winter at Overit Studios in frigid upstate New York, Have A Nice Day was engineered by Dave Parker (ex-Coheed and Cambria), mixed by Adam Clairmont and mastered by Grammy winner Alan Douches.

Have A Nice Day showcases Ghastly Sound’s ability to merge sonic tributaries from head-buzzing stoner rock, melodic alt-metal and obliterating hardcore into a tsunami of inescapable infectiousness that needs no classification to get pounded into blissful submission by.

And, lest anyone forget, this slab of fine northern aggression is delivered by a band that accomplishes its gargantuan, adrenalized riff-mastery without the inclusion of a guitarist.

"Thunderous, alternative heavy rock that never sounds like anything else." - METAL HAMMER

"Despite the brevity of their songs, the band has developed a real knack for filling them wall-to-wall with both beauty and brutality." - INVISIBLE ORANGES

"Fuses the barely-controlled chaos of classic Converge with the otherworldly, larger-than-life sonic vistas of the Deftones at their most melodious." - METAL SUCKS
