about

Rogues Among Us debut EP, "The Watcher" is a tale of human consciousness and recognition of ones own deeds. Through a whirlwind of aggressive rhythms and a battle between dissonance and melody, a picture is painted of what man is, and what we must bear witness to. For, we are the watchers.

Track Name: Lesser Grandstander
Lesser Grandstander

Doing research, where did they go wrong?,
Will this be too much?, Is it not enough?,
These questions won't stop until they're answered,
What goes on inside my mind?

I'll never forgive myself, (Oh Good God, God please help me now.)
I don't know why I did this. (Oh Good God, God please help me now.)

What is thing that I have done?
What is this man I've become?
Keep them from seeing the real me,
Keep them from feeling true pain.
End it now before it....

Racing thoughts, Can't go back now,
Retractions no longer available,
Only faces shocked, followed by muffled voices.
Just repeating over and over and over and over again.

God forgive me, (Kill, kill, kill, kill, kill them all)
because I won't forgive myself (kill, kill, kill, kill, kill them all)

What is thing that I have done?
What is this man I've become?
Keep them from seeing the real me,
Keep them from feeling real pain.
End it now before it starts.

Faster, faster they run,
Making this harder than it has to be. (Much harder than it has to be.)
Faster, faster they fall,
Run away, Run away,
From our mess I've made.
Track Name: The Wolf
The Wolf

An offering
for the sheep
the Wolf's got me
tits, then teeth.

She'll sink her claws a little deeper
if spilling blood is not enough.
And squeeze you harder, if she sees fit
though what she needs lies in her palm..

Dangling...
Pendent...
This temptation...
Giving...

an offering
for the sheep.
The Wolf's got me,
tits for teeth.

So come and play it out with me:
'cat and mouse', or Wolf and sheep.
Whichever way you would prefer it,
cause in the end I'll still be...

Dangling...
Pendent...
This temptation...
Will leave me

Her's to keep...
Unfaltering...
Infinitely...
Her's to keep.

She reels them in 'hook, line and sinker'
while staying dry upon the shore.
You can try to fight against the current,
but soon enough she'll have one more...

Dangling...
Pendent...
This temptation...
We'll be

Her's to keep...
Unfaltering...
Infinitely...
For the 'Sheep'.

So come on out and play with me:
'cat and mouse' or Wolf and sheep.
Whichever way you would prefer it,
cause in the end we'll all be...

Dangling...
Pendent...
This temptation...
Well I am

Your's to keep,
Unfaltering...
Infinitely...
Your's to keep.
Track Name: Yugen
Yugen

Pacing to and fro,
Testing waters left alone,
Itching for some more,
Quenching thirsts for some blow.

Cut it up and make some lines,
Don't get caught, you'll do some time,
Take your cut and go sell mine,
Sell it all, we'll live so fine.

Cooking more galore,
Try a sample before we go,
Everything so clear,
Shoot it up and have no fear.

Watch what you do,
Watch what you say,
Everything's okay.
Here they come,
Put it away,
No more free bumps,
It's time to pay.

One: Comes out.
Two: Goes in.
Three: Open up.
"Four" a good feeling.

At the end of the day,
I know it for the best,
No tears for my mess.
