about

Greylights Ottawa, Ontario

Known for its eerie keyboards, heavy groove and the originality of its subgenre, Greylights regularly works with the top promoters in Ontario, having quickly risen to being a crowd favourite and touring band. With the release of a debut EP entitled “Tarpeia's Descent” in 2014 as a very strong starting point, the subsequent release of a single entitled “Ultraviolet” in 2015 was their next big move. ... more

Track Name: Grimm
Make sure everybody knows it!

We are the ones,
We are the chosen,
We make the dreams,
The ones that cant be broken,
We have a voice let the truth be spoken,
We exist make sure everybody knows it!

I, I have been dormant for thousands of years,
And I can't bear to see all of humanity go to waste out of fear,
Buried in the shame of the silence of the dead,
The wicked ones hide in their shadows,
They loathe with regret!

Stay unbroken,
The chains that bind won't help to mend what you couldn't with time,
Losing a part of yourself from the inside,
Awakening to the voice that cries I am alive!

Suffocated by the truth the seekers wither further away,
We don't exist just to fall apart,
We are here to stay.

Suffocated by the truth the seekers wither further away,
We don't exist just to fall apart,
We are here to stay.

I can see the fear in your eyes,
That death is creeping upon you,
You can run but you can't hide,
Because I'll always know where to find you!

We are the ones,
We are the chosen,
We make the dreams,
The ones that can't be broken,
We have a voice let the truth be spoken,
We exist make sure everybody knows it!

**Voice clip of Paul Hellyer, former Canadian Minister of National Defence**
"A document was prepared which concluded that at least four species have been visiting earth for thousands of years."

Kill everything in my path,
Kill everything in my path,
You all deserve to die!
Track Name: Killing Time
Your life will slowly end and you will burn to the fucking ground,
I watch you suffer while you cry for help,
I'm the demon that crawls through your skin,
I'm the voice that you hear in your head!

Why do you think you are better than me,
When you have nothing left to hold,
Happiness is a false fake tale let the truth be told,
As life crumbles up death will unfold!

It is a sign as the stars fall from the sky,
Evil is upon us there is nowhere to hide,
All I see is fear and blood running down from your eyes,
All hail the fallen king he has arrived,
He has arrived,
He has arrived,
He has arrived!

It is a sign as the stars fall from the sky,
Evil is upon us there is no way to hide,
All I see is fear and blood running down from your eyes,
All hail the fallen king he has arrived!

It's killing time are you ready to die,
I have a taste for your soul and a thirst for your life,
All I see is fear and blood running down from your eyes,
All hail the fallen king he has arrived,
He has arrived!
Track Name: Samael
In the land of the fallen you were there,
You were all alone crying and broken inside,
How do you dare to play games with my head,
I wish you were forgotten I wish I was dead!

Sacrificing my happiness for yours,
This is the last time I'll think of you,
How did it come to this,
You are not the person that I once knew,
Smiling covers for your emptiness,
I will get under your skin and show the real you,
This is the end our time is running out!

I'm what you created,
I'm what you created,
I'm hell on earth,
I'm hell on earth!

Wishing you can die will not save you in the end,
I can watch you run away but I will always catch up,
I can see the the weakness in your eyes,
How I feel means nothing to you,
Ugghhhhhhh!

How do I find my way home,
(How do I find my way home),
Through this darkness alone,
(We are all alone),
How do we, we find our way home,
(How can I find my way home),
Through this darkness alone,
(We are all alone)!

We are all alone,
I am on my own.
Track Name: Infekt Swarm Nine
I destroyer,
I infect, (infect),
I overlord,
I swarm, (swarm).

Parasites from galaxies infect swarm nine!

Down from the sky we are pouring,
There's nothing you can do but run puny human.

I infector,
I reign (reign),
I am the overlord,
I am pain (pain).

Parasites from galaxies infect swarm nine!

Down from the sky we are pouring,
Bringing the new disease,
Watch as your skin removes itself,
Bringing your faith to it's knees.

Parasites from galaxies infect swarm nine!

Down from the sky we are pouring,
Bringing the new disease,
Watch as your skin removes itself,
Bringing you to your knees.
Track Name: Oracle's Whisper
As the light clears out the darkness,
You will face your true self as a non-reflected image,
Behind what you can't see is something that can't be explained ,
Fuck!

I just wanna watch you die,
Make sure you're not alive,
Take a look at yourself and tell me what you see,
There is nothing at all,
Nothing there,
Nothing at all,
Where the fuck did you go!

I will drag you down to hell,
You cannot save yourself,
Just let yourself fall,
I feel sorry for you,
There is nothing you can change,
That makes it easier for you!

Crawling through the flames,
You are drenched in shame,
And you will never be the same,
Ughh just shut your mouth,
You are no fucking help,
Just go fuck yourself!

There is a haunting feeling inside of me,
That just won't fucking leave me alone,
How could you do this to me,
Me and you could never be!

I feed off all of your hate!
I feed off all of your hate!
