about

Black Mesa Bellingham, Washington

Black Mesa was originally formed by guitarist/vocalists Andrew and Adrian in fall 2011. Early in 2012, bassist Rowan was added. Finally, in the spring, after a lengthy search, Derek joined on drums.

The idea of the band is that the music should not be forced into a specific sound, allowing each song to be created depending on how the band feels at any given time.

Track Name: Falafel Waffle
We've been here before.
I can feel it, so believe it
Expertise riddles through with holes.
Don't listen in, though the voices, tell me not to.
I have to see it to believe it myself.

It makes my head spin, glorious children.
But why would they?
I have to show you, but I don't want to.
Please leave the lights on.
I can show you what it means to say-

I have to show you but I don't want to, so please leave the lights on.
Lead me to the great city built underneath our luxury shallow graves.
Lead me on, in this with me.
The speech of our king is empty.

Don't listen in.
Though the voices, tell me not to.
I can show you what it means to say-
Lead me on, all the way.

It makes my head spin, glorious children.
But why would they?
I have to show you, but I don't want to.
Please leave the lights on.
I can show you what it means to say-

We've been here before.
I can feel it, so believe it
Expertise riddles through with holes.
Don't listen in, though the voices, tell me not to.
I have to see it to believe it myself.
Track Name: #occupyfailure
Expectations, still dropping. Like the air of lies around here.
You're a thief, and you know it. You abuse your power to no end.
Turning blind eyes to our own, but playing help to anyone who wants it.
Are we giving up? Are we ready to give it up and spread the wealth to everyone?

Taking sides but raping everything until the world is barren,
like a moth drawn to the light of holding everything you can.
Telling lies that shine a golden light under your worthless halo.
But everyone is just a whore so lay us down and fuck us over.

What can occur will. But I refuse responsibility.

Don't you know, we're the advocate.
Humble and so altruistic.
happiness, independent,
on all the things we came to own.

Claiming to be victims in a plot to steal our way of life.
But know we hold a greed that matches anyone above us.

Don't we realize that we are just as bad as those we're fighting?
Don't we know what's most important isn't something we can win?
Don't we all just want the same things: to survive and have our family?
Don't we see the lowest of us still feels the highest form entitlement?

What can occur will,
but I refuse responsibility.
(but I refuse to take responsibility for all my actions)
Track Name: Unknown
Reach out and take the sun for yourself.
You'll need to see the way so take my light.
Calm your breathing and hold your heart still.
Keep your focus you stray from your roots.
But you don't fade away.
Will the branches find you there?

May you take my hand but if you can then would you swear to follow me?
Because I need an excuse to come down.
So where are you now that I'm leading?
Don't you care to know where I'll be taking you down slowly in your sleep?
We'll be drowning amidst all our dreams.
So where will you go when we're sinking?

You look up because nothing is down here.
Just dont look down and you'll be alright.
Lives in bloom but you cant simply view them.
The scorching light that reality shines.
Don't tread on the cracks they're just waiting and waiting.

May you take my hand but if you can then would you swear to follow me?
Because I need an excuse to come down.
So where are you now that I'm leading?
Don't you care to know where I'll be taking you down slowly in your sleep?
We'll be drowning amidst all our dreams.
So where will you go when we're sinking?

And what would we say to all the masses?
What you see with your eyes nigh describes what's perceived in your mind.
We want to believe what we see and without the translation.
Open your eyes and see what the world means to me when you're not there.
Track Name: Sleeping Sickness
Smoothly, we could all drown, without knowing. Unheard of.
Coloring, is not enough. Stay lucid, for me.

This is an ad for someone I know who can put me to sleep.
Take my dreams and hold them often, away from me.
Hold, my eyes open.

Falling, apart and it seems, we keep choking. We can't breathe.
Holding, as we still burn, shedding ashes, spreading ourselves.

This is a cry for help I know that you can hear me.
How can you help me with the color bleeding out of your face?
Hold, my eyes open.

They're going to take me again why don't you believe me?
I can't explain it but I know they came in right through the door.
Open, my eyes again.

Somebody help me get me out of my bed,
because (???).
Am i better yet?
