about

The Gravity Guild Los Angeles, California

"The Gravity Guild has it all. The sound, the songs, the chops. Clearly lethal, but completely addictive."

-Susan Masino
Let There Be Rock - The Story of AC/DC


"The Gravity Guild is an LA power group with a dirty, slow burn sound that would appeal to fans of southern hard rock or classic grungemasters Soundgarden and Alice in Chains. Check em out!"

-Mojo's Army

Track Name: Collide
It’s happening once more
There’s something so familiar about this world of mine
And I know I’ve been here before
I’ve seen these sights
I’ve heard these sounds a million times
And I think I know why

We’re all trapped inside a loop of time for all our lives
And the world repeats itself precisely…endlessly
Every second, every moment, every kiss good bye
They remain, they stay the same until the end of days
Until time and space collide

Suppose that time’s a circle perpetually bending back upon itself
We don’t know we’re constantly reborn into the same form
With no choices but the hand we’ve been dealt
Destined to repeat ourselves

Because we’re all trapped inside a loop of time for all our lives
And the world repeats itself precisely…endlessly
Every second, every moment, every kiss good bye
They remain, they stay the same until the end of days

But I’m fine just to know that I’m alive
There is nothing temporary in this life
I knew there’s some truth to deja vu
I feel for you: the pitiful... the miserable... the vulnerable
The weak of mind
But I’m fine just to know that I’m alive
Track Name: SLO
I’m out on a ledge looking down
Priorities changing instantly
Open, exposed…Breaking down
Until everything becomes clear to me

If I could just slow down
I know I’d feel this way most every day and say
I’ve made up my mind
I’m alive and nothing can ever take that away

Nothing’s ever set in stone
Clutch your stone and don’t let go

I dive into white wash
Breaking through the curl of blue
I tame the chaos
Waters cool and make anew

If I could just slow down
I know I’d feel this way most every day and say
I’ve made up my mind
I’m alive and nothing can ever take that away

Nothing’s ever set in stone
Clutch your stone and don’t let go

Oh, brother mine
Help me to redefine myself
To use this stepping stone to never be alone
This is my stepping stone… My stepping stone

Now I know…Take it slow
Clutch that stone and don’t let go
Friend or foe, the ebb and flow have to show room to grow
So clutch that stone
Don’t let go of the stepping stone
Now I know…Take it slow
Clutch that stone…Don’t let go

Nothing’s ever set in stone
Clutch your stone and don’t let go

Oh, brother mine
Help me to redefine myself
To use this stepping stone to never be alone
This is my stepping stone… My stepping stone
Track Name: 2 Birds, 0 Stones
It was far too late to change her mind
Since the day we met I laid it all on the line
Only to find she wouldn’t leave
I couldn’t believe it when she told me that she loved me
So I took her to bed but I should have said to her
No fucking way!

I’m damned if I don’t and damned if I do
I thought I heard those three little words
Tell me how do I get rid of you
I’m damned if I don’t and damned if I do
No self-control… I need to know
Tell me how do I get rid of you

This familiar stranger, six years gone
Couldn’t seem more right… couldn’t be more wrong
In retrospect I don’t regret the situation’s ending
And though I took her to bed I know I should have said to her
No fucking way!

I’m damned if I don’t and damned if I do
I thought I heard those three little words
Tell me how do I get rid of you
I’m damned if I don’t and damned if I do
No self-control… I need to know
Tell me how do I get rid of you
Track Name: The Game
I know you disapprove of my decision
I’ve been dying to prove my position
Once I had the guts to say when you were wrong
Now that spark inside me is gone

I sacrificed my life for this
And I will not run away

Because there’s no escape I know from those who don’t listen
Those who never listen
There is no medicine for those who don’t listen
Those who never listen

I have played this game…Old and sour
I know who’s to blame…You’re such a coward
Once upon a time I got some sage advise
Never argue with a fool

I sacrificed my life for this
And I will not run away

Because there’s no escape I know from those who don’t listen
Those who never listen
There is no medicine for those who don’t listen
Those who never listen

They use you…Get used to it
Track Name: Issues Of Trust
What would you do if everything you thought to be true was just a lie
And the reasons why were as vague as the sky?
What would you do if everybody you thought that you knew turned out a fraud?
Just turn a cold shoulder to your god

I’ll be okay, no thanks to you and the dirty things that you do

How could it be I’ve been deceived by the only one I want to believe?
I sit and grieve for the ones who bereave
How could it be I failed to see that I hold the key to right the wrong
Since I’ve known it’s been there all along?

I’ll be okay, no thanks to you and the dirty things that you do

I refuse to beat up on you
I have done those dirty things too
When confronting issues of trust
Leave all deceivers in the dust
Believe in yourself and you’ll find that the strength is in you
Track Name: Step Outside
A conversation with myself
Remarkable reflections show themselves to me
As I find myself consumed by thoughts that hold me
Witness to a one-sided tug-of-war
And I promised to…I need to stop
But I’m mesmerized…I can’t step outside
I’m caught in the mirror

Hypnotized by colored images
Spinning, turning, rolling in my head
I can’t see through this drifting cloud of smoke
Unable to discern fact from fiction
I must find a way
So I close my eyes and step outside to see what’s real

Close your eyes to step outside

As I step outside I hear the voice that told me
Just what it was I first came out here for
And I promised to…I need to start
So I close my eyes and step outside the mirror
Track Name: Little Pill
With this little pill
I see the world before me as if from a sill
Lifted off the ground
I’m rolling
With this little pill
My eyes feel both wide open
Never standing still
Interactive and outspoken

One little pill that takes you up and higher
Until you scrape the sky
I’m flying
I’m floating away

With this little pill
I become my greatest version
Transforming will
Rebirth…A different person
With this little pill
This power surges through me
With this little pill
I sense new urges looming

One little pill that takes me up and higher
Until I scrape the sky
I’m flying
I’m floating away
Track Name: Time And Again
Why not learn to accept this life that you are living?
Only a fool would pass up the chances they’ve been given
Realize that love surrounds you
And with no consequences to defend
Embrace the light that lets you start again

Dust off your wings before they grow moldy rotten
You know the feeling…Or have you forgotten
Just let the weightlessness surround you
Then the body will lift…The mind ascends
Embrace the light that lets you start again

I’m fearful…I’m afraid…I’m terrified
That you won’t see the light my friend
Do I need to prove this, Lord knows I’ve tried
Time and time and time again
Track Name: Subordinate
You…You better watch your mouth this time
Cuz words are deceiving and you just crossed the line
So how does your foot taste?
It takes time to learn you’re not invincible and humans are fallible

Warning: Your self-destruction’s forming
Stay on that track
You can’t look back
Stop dwelling in the past

Your guilty conscience holds you down
Restrains you and keeps you and knocks you to the ground
So pay no attention
You can tell that goddamn cricket
“Take your help then go and fuck yourself…”

Warning: Your self-destruction’s forming
Stay on that track
You can’t look back
Stop dwelling in the past

Once you face the truth
Things are bound to get better for you
If you look ahead and live with no regrets

Should you fall…Do not fret…No regrets…Face the truth
Live and learn that you’re human too

I don’t know why you’d throw your life away
Cut yourself off and watch yourself decay
So pay close attention
It’s not hard to learn what you can’t seem to get…To live without regret

If fear consumes you
Things are bound to get better for you
If you look ahead and live with no regrets
Track Name: So Long
Please…I need you more than ever before…Come to me
Because you are the one
You make it right when shit’s all messed up
You are the one
Please…Don’t ever let me fall that far…No not again

Because you were the one who made "so long" so long
Give me up and expect more of the same

Give me up but don’t be ashamed
Living is the only way to prove why you bleed
So ashamed
Integrity is not the only virtue I need
So help me…Please

No…This is not the way I wanted things to end
Because you are the one
You make it right when shit’s all messed up
You are the one
Please…Just understand that none of this was done in vain

Because you were the one who made "so long" so long
Give me up and expect more of the same

I can’t explain
It seems lately I don’t have the will to fight no more
Waiting, contemplating about being alone
Individuality is all that matters to me
I’ve gone insane
It seems lately I don’t have the will to fight no more
Hating, always grating me right down to the bone
Individuality is all that matters when we're hating,
Contemplating about being alone in this world

All I need is to believe the answers will come
Because I am the one
I am the only one I know of
I am the one
Please…I need a little more…I just need to taste it

Because this feels so wrong it’s been so long, so long
Give me up and expect more of the same
Track Name: Delusional
In the waking hours I see
I’ve become the epitome
The quintessential man of dreams
The archetype, or so it seems
But in the morning light I find
In this state of mind
These are notions falsified
By shadows buried deep inside

You’re too good for the likes of me
You make me better than I ought to be

I bit off more than I could chew
And I might choke to death
Devoured every piece of you
And I can’t catch my breath
And it’s all because of you
It’s all because I bit off way more than I could chew
And I can’t catch my breath

Memories they speak to me
And offer dreams that cannot be
I think about this constantly
What if things went differently?
Would I have become a king?
You were all encompassing
But like the snowy death of spring
My confidence keeps withering

You’re too good for the likes of me
You make me better than I ought to be

Suffocating…cold and blue
I have to stop comparing everything to you
I’ll never find something new
Comparing everything to you
I’m delusional

Suffocate these daydreams
Overwhelmed by these delusions
