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: My Own Worst Enemy
Shut the door and shut my eyes
Pray that I am all alone today
Don a smile, try to improvise
Keep the dog at bey

But I've got butterflies flying through my head
[Like they've always been]
There are bitter lies lying in my bed
[I taste the salty skin]
I've got better things, better things in store
[Time won't wait for me]
So let her sing, let her sing once more
[I would not wish you on my own worst enemy]

Time will tell what's to become of me
Time to escape this shell

I cannot stand to hear another word
Blind faith is so eerily absolute
Head down walking with the herd
By now the point is moot

But I've got butterflies flying through my head
[Like they've always been]
There are bitter lies lying in my bed
[I taste the salty skin]
I've got better things, better things in store
[Time won't wait for me]
So let her sing, let her sing once more
[What's to become of me]

On this face that I've concealed
The truth is etched indelibly upon me
All this wasted time revealed
Signs of years beyond my age befall me
Track Name: Fallen Down
How could you just let me go, let me go
It seemed so easy for you although
Secrets undiscovered don't, won't remain
But you won't let me know

These are the reasons why you're guilty of the same crimes as before
It's hard to believe we've fallen down this road again, we've fallen down
And if you perceive these lies as truth you'll know you can't walk out that door
For no other reason than it's hard to see things when we've fallen down

How could passion melt away? Couldn't say...
Yet all would be forgiven today
If you'd only show me once, once again
But you never let it show

These are the reasons why you're guilty of the same crimes as before
It's hard to believe we've fallen down this road again, we've fallen down
And if you perceive these lies as truth you'll know you can't walk out that door
For no other reason than it's hard to see things when we've fallen down

When we fall down we see ourselves
We look pitiful, we look so pitiful
When we fall down we learn as well
How to stand up again
Pick yourself up again
Track Name: Emotion Sickness
All I need to know is how to cure this
Emotion sickness ailing me
It's taken control of me
This is getting old, a constant fluctuation
Self-damnation imprisons me
Shrouds me in obscurity

Been trying to figure out
What's the cause of my self-doubt
A loose connection in my brain
Makes me mildly insane
A drastic side
The part of me that I can't hide
I wonder what it's gonna take for me
To be emotionally free

I always think too much, committing mental treason
When there's no reason, there's no rhyme
I do it all the time
Leaning on a crutch, though it's ironic
I think the chronic is to blame
What a crying shame

Been trying to figure out
What's the cause of my self-doubt
A loose connection in my brain
Makes me mildly insane
A drastic side
The part of me that I can't hide
I wonder what it's gonna take for me
To be emotionally free

When emotions get the best of me
That's when I'm urning to be free
And when I'm feeling all alone
I must remember that I'm not the only one
But it hurts me so to let them show
It's so hard to let them go
But I must free what's ailing me internally
To be free

Hopelessly paranoid until I brave the weather
Pull myself together, show some spine
And rightfully claim what's mine

Been trying to figure out
What's the cause of my self-doubt
A loose connection in my brain
Makes me mildly insane
A drastic side
The part of me that I can't hide
I wonder what it's gonna take for me
To be emotionally free
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: It's Not The End Of The World
So it seems you've gone and given up on your dreams
Lost your self-esteem
Head in hand, life is nothing like you had planned
Take it like a man
It's not the end of the world

Bound by fear and convalescence now disappears
Wait another year
Lost your mind, still you try but you've fallen behind
Everything's gonna be fine
It's not the end of the world

Feeling low? Just let it go
Some things you can't control
Gone insane? Well don't complain
Some things you can't explain
Lost you love? Well join the club
There's more important things to think of
When push comes to shove
It's not the end of the world
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: Last Act Of A Desperate Man
The last act of a desperate man
Desperate matters call for desperate plans
Can't remember, can't understand
How his life could slip right through his hands

He's so tired of lying
He's so tired of trying
In his final act he makes his final stand
The last act of a desperate man

Drank a bottle and crawled inside
Second chances always passed him by
He wanted to be more in life
Empty pages full this open book with why

He's so tired of lying
He's so tired of trying
In his final act he makes his final stand

Though he tried he couldn't take his own life
He decided to change his mind and surrender
The last act of a desperate man
