Bandwidth Bandito A powerful voice that carries you along on some epic rock journeys through the human condition. The arrangements are expertly executed and create a very professional yet personal sound. This is a thinking persons rock band and I swear the lead singer has four sets of lungs!

Track Name: Villain Am I None
I am ready to strike, don't step into my sights
I can kill with a lie
I am the fortress of power, I am the man of the hour
I am invincible now

No, I don't feel a thing, and a laugh hides what's within
And no-one can hurt me again, I have learned how to win

Fortunate son, second to none
But I have become...
Colder than space, and all that I say is
Falling away...

Into the dark, to be lost in the night
Where no-one can tell how I long for the light

Where I'm starting to see I can't play the game anymore
Can I start to believe I won't be this way anymore?

We risk all our life, when it's all we have
For what we've given the time, we got nothing back
We're risking our life, when it's all we have
For what we've given the time, I want something back

I promise you I won't play the game anymore
If you guarantee I won't feel this way anymore
That I could be human again, that I could be whole
That I'd be forgiven, to laugh from my soul
Track Name: After Dark
I remember how I took your hand
And we walked out on the water

I remember all the promises I made
How I meant to make them last forever

Now I won't let you go
Like I did before

I turned my back, but now I find
You were with me all the time
All my life, only a breath away

I am trying hard to find myself a way
I can be something better

So I won't let you go
Like I did before now

I turned my back, but now I find
You were with me all the time
All my life, only a breath away
Eclipse has passed and now I see
You were always there for me
All my life, only a breath away

I remember how I took your hand
I remember all the promises I made
Track Name: In Cold Blood
You begin creeping and crawling in
Charming with words so sweet
Promises you won't keep

We went down to your house
But all of the while a voice was crying
"Run away from this now"
You took my hand, pulled me close
And whispered the honeyed words designed
To hold me under your spell
Just long enough

Black heart proud
I can just see you now
Laughing as we lay down
Ready to wipe me out

Out all night, chasing the dark delight
Kissing me in cold blood
Twisting the truth of love

The perfume of romance, the tender desire
It is all gone now
The madness of moments, the end of the lie
It has all come down
You took what you wanted, you buried the hope
Our struggle is over, but I want you to know
The triumph in your eyes will turn into dread
You see, I'm not dead

Don't stop the fight, I'm still alive
This is the day you die
Track Name: Dead Men Rise
Down in the dark, down in the quiet part
Of every human heart
There is a voice that cuts through all our noise
And tells us who we are

Come, Spirit fall down
We can feel the presence now, we can sense it all around
Stripping back veils that cover all hearts
So no-one can deny the crown
No-one can resist the sound
Calling us home

Here every argument has come to naught
Every willful thought
And though some hearts are proud and though some doubt
Every knee shall bow

The hour has arrived, the last days of men
When kingdoms collide, the lame walk again
The hour has arrived, the lost shall be found
When kingdoms collide, the deaf hear the sound
The hour has arrived, the Earth see the signs
When kingdoms collide, sight for the blind
The hour has arrived, the Son casts His light
When kingdoms collide, dead men shall rise
