Realize you can't escape the world, but in the end you can always dream.
You can wait forever, if forever is what it takes.
Raise favor, raise favor, raise your hand and fucking swear.
"By sunrise we'll no longer be here!"

Yeah, this is going to take us a while.
Yeah, this might not even get done all.

We've built illusions stronger than your safe walls;
we'll burn down every tree within our forest;
we've forgotten everything that we once stood for;
we would give it all up, just to forget who we are.

Don't be the end of all things.
Don't let them build a wall around you.
Don't forget about those you love.
Don't ever forget yourself.

In waiting, I've been awake for years.

Can't we fill the pit we've dug, a piece of our own grave.
You can sweat the fever, the disease is all the same.
Feel delight, feel delight, feel reckless and assured.
"By sunrise we'll no longer be here!"

Can't we change intention, to a better time and place.
You can take the weather, if the weather stays the same.
Be broken, be broken, be the parts and not the sum.
"By sunrise we'll no longer be here!"

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.
