Evel Arc North Carolina

Rivertown collective's Evel Arc sings about a dark, lonely existence where hell is eternity and life is a dream. He got his start singing in the Pentecostal church as a youth. This dark folk rock narrative shines light on all the unattractive human qualities that make us all unique and special. Evel Arc's sound has been compared to Bonnie Prince Billy and Lambchop. ... more

Track Name: Dark House
it gets dark in this house with no light on
it gets cold when you stay out you dont come home
i have seen your face honey you look like shit
come on over give me your love baby then you leave

in a house with no light there are no shadows
summon forth the demon she will follow
i have heard your cries honey you sound like fear
come on over give me your love baby then you leave

i have seen your face honey you look like regret
Track Name: Diving Bell
this one's about a diving bell
it's anchored to the ocean floor
i am sitting underneath
abandoning the will to breath

you're all the rage

this one's about the end of my rope

i'm hanging on to i believe
i believe in certain death
Track Name: Dream
you're not sick you're just lazy and everybody knows you're a piece of shit
it's not your fault don't ever think that way love it's for the better
now just dream go on and dream

everyone's been to the bottom you been kicked down and abused like somebody forgot em
it's a dark hole crawl your way out brother sister i adore you
now just dream go on and dream

no shadows i've only dreamed

we deserve so much better at the same time we deserve each other
cause we're all just sick enough to be hateful
joining hands with the devil some are cain some are abel
now just dream go on and dream
Track Name: Lightning
lightening come to me enter my brain i am in need of your healing hand
i made my moves i played ahead when i wake up tomorrow i'll be in my bed

truth it be told i'm scared to death and for once in my life i'm put to the test
i've learned to listen to listen for clues and when satan returns he's lookin for you
i never waited so long, i never waited so.....

righteous is only as unto oneself and you aint seen the last of me
or figured me out
i'm two parts deceivin and one part believin
and i dont know names cause i never seen em
Track Name: Smarter/Stronger
there is water everywhere not a single drop to spare
i won't be the first to say we're all dying either way
all consuming cleansing flame come destroy me once again

i'll be smarter
i'll be smarter
i'll be stronger
and none of this is what i ever wanted

there is hope for when you can't face reality
when you wake you will see it's all been shadows and dreams
speak in tongues it's not the language
it is fulfillment, the promise the blood
