about

Audio Cynic Aberdeen, UK

A two-man alternative rock band infused with elements of classic rock, prog rock, and metal.


With the use of both a guitar amp and a bass amp, a fully-loaded pedalboard, and looped basslines, the result is a sound much bigger than typically heard from a two-piece.


FFO: Muse, Metallica, Queens of the Stone Age, Royal Blood


Grant Cooper - Vocals / guitar

Chris Steele - Drums

Track Name: Let's Run
Venture into the world again
This place, it’s all so different
The sights and sounds are whispering
Pindrops in the echo ocean
You hear it, you feel it, you want it…

I… I’m thinking you should curb your expectations
I… I’m wanting some instant gratification
You… you’re not the one I had in mind
Yeah… let’s run and leave this place behind

One day to wreck the habitat
Two words to destroy the stage I’m at
What I want is unattainable
What I’ve done is unsustainable
You hear it, you feel it, you want it…

I… I’m thinking you should curb your expectations
I… I’m wanting some instant gratification
You… you’re not the one I had in mind
Yeah… let’s run and leave this place behind

I… I’m thinking you should curb your expectations
I… I’m wanting some instant gratification
You… you’re not the one I had in mind
Yeah… let’s run and leave
Yeah, let’s leave
Leave
Leave. This. Place. Behind
Track Name: I'm Not Cruel / You're Not Alone
Hunted, I’m wanted
Seething, I’m bleeding,
Choking, I’m smoking,
Desperate, I need it

It’s irrelevant, it’s irrelevant, it’s all irrelevant

I’m not afraid to give you something you want… I’m not cruel
It’s not a phase, I’m just deeply in love…with you
I won’t give up, I’m not that kind of fool… for you
I look in your eyes and see the future is cold, unsure and doubting
But at this point in time I know you’d love to be mine

Hunter, I want ya,
Heathen, still breathing,
Fading, degrading,
Can’t quit, I need it

I’m not afraid to give you something you want… I’m not cruel
It’s not a phase, I’m just deeply in love…with you
I won’t give up, I’m not that kind of fool… for you
I look in your eyes and see the future is cold, unsure and doubting
But at this point in time I know you’d love to be mine

You’re not alone, you’re not alone,
You’re not alone, we’re not going home
You’re not alone, you’re not alone,
You’re not alone, we’re not going home
You’re not alone, you’re not alone,
You’re not alone, we’re not going home
You’re not alone, you’re not alone,
You’re not alone, we’re not going home
Track Name: No One
Some days I sit and close my eyes in solitude, ‘til I start thinking of you
Your face, your lips, your teeth, your eyes, I see them still
I couldn’t stand to see you tear my life in two, the way you twisted the truth
You stand before me with a smile and I know… I know it was you, I know it was you

This road before me lies
Two paths on either side
Back to the suffering,
Hatred, despised

Your talk, your cries,
Motives, disguised,
No right, no wrong,
No more, I’m done
I know what you are

You’ll never see what I can see
You’ll never feel what I now feel
You’ll never care for what you’ve done

You’re not the one I thought you were
You’re not the goddess I preferred
You’re not the demon I inferred
You’re no one

Temptation fills my mind with thoughts I once subdued, there’s still so much we could do
But memories of times gone by warn me how… you fucked it for good, yeah, you fucked it for good

This road before me lies
Two paths on either side
Back to the suffering,
Hatred, despised

Your talk, your cries,
Motives, disguised,
No right, no wrong,
No more, I’m done
I know what you are

You’ll never see what I can see
You’ll never feel what I now feel
You’ll never care for what you’ve done

You’re not the one I thought you were
You’re not the goddess I preferred
You’re not the demon I inferred
You’re no one

You’re not the one I thought you were
You’re not the goddess I preferred
You’re not the demon I inferred

I'm not as perfect as I say
My mind’s erased, obsessed with pain
I’ll carve these words into my brain
You're no one
Track Name: Second Nature
Black
Your whole world turned black
You pray for the end
'Cause you will never go back

Freedom
The freedom to choose
If you'd just open your mind
If you'd only want to

Slow, they come
Deft, they run
We desire
What they conspire

We live, the consumers
To kill the intruders
Defending the biased
Lead by those who lie best

We're breeding a hatred
To fear what they stated
Fight like they want to
Open your eyes to...

Afraid
Afraid of the unknown
Believing what you'd heard
You cling to what you know

But now
Now you've broke the chain
you let your thoughts be free
Let them think you're insane

Slow, they come
Deft, they run
We desire
What they conspire

We live, the consumers
To kill the intruders
Defending the biased
Lead by those who lie best

We're breeding a hatred
To fear what they stated
Fight like they want to
Open your eyes to...

We live, the consumers
To kill the intruders
Defending the biased
Lead by those who lie best

We're breeding a hatred
To fear what they stated
Fight like they want to
Open your eyes to...
