about

In the mid-90’s, during the crux of what can only be described as an all-time low point in the South Florida music scene, Brethren emerged as a sort of revitalized, contemporary incarnation of seminal Miami Hardcore outfit Mindframe. Venues, especially those which were conducive for Hardcore shows, were sparse as were not only bands which resonated with the kids, but bands in general. Thus, synonymous with poor turnouts was an apparent lack of vigor, conviction, and hope. The formation of Brethren allowed for an inadvertent realization of the longing, if not need, for a culturally relevant band that could serve as an unapologetic, anger-infused soundtrack to the lives of those who had a lot to say in regards to personal as well as social issues, serving as the impetus for a revitalization of the South Florida Hardcore.

Track Name: Convictions
Lost touch with everything, and nothing's quite like it seems
Lost my mind, lost my soul, so what must I redeem
Shadows all around me and darkness before my eyes
Taken me to a place with an emptiness I despise

Anguish strikes again when all is said and done

Lost touch with everything, and nothing's quite like it seems
Lost my mind, lost my soul, so what must I redeem
Anguish strikes again when all is said and done
Taking your wretched path when all is said and done

I look around and I'm surrounded
I don't know why these morals have fallen

Convictions! Afraid of what lies beyond
Breaking all indecision another empty-full bond
Convictions! Afraid of what lies beyond
Breaking all indecision another loss for the world
My feelings have died
Track Name: Wrong Intentions
This plague of rage black hold this heartless dream estrange
Can't find its role, a man in pain.. looking down, insane

This primal act of instance to death, it's all the same
Absorbing all this substance and destroying all this game

Sow how it feels, it's never all that right to see
He's never satisfied, not justified of what it means to be

It's not the same.. a future stolen with all the wrong intentions

This plague of rage black hold this heartless dream estrange
Can't find its role, a man in pain.. looking down, insane

It's not the same, a future stolen

This primal act of the instance to death, it's all the same
Absorbing all this substance and destroying all this game

All warmth surrounded the cold has forced its coming in
To reckon with all these emotions beholding a sense of sin

...of sin!

Sow how it feels, it's never all that right to see
He's never satisfied, not justified of what it means to be

It's not the same, a future stolen
WITH ALL THE WRONG INTENTIONS
Track Name: Trapped In Reality
Time to forget all about what's happened
Take things day by day, future is just minutes away
You always have these tendencies of looking back upon your past
Trying to find a way to explain the how you are
But a lot of times you're lost in something

Trapped in reality
You have to deal with everything that comes in your way
You can't just sit around

You always have these tendencies of looking back upon your past

Trapped in reality
You have to deal with everything that comes in your way
You can't just sit around

It's time to forget about the past
And find some consolations in times yet to come

Save... all your ignorant breath
and stop... all this procrastination
Track Name: End
Shades come back to haunt you
While visions fill this every dream
The flames surround you
A soul at whose fault burns destiny
This pain means nothing
A wall of wills builds inside
To hide along vengeful thoughts
These feelings which grow don't take a side
And now surround yourself
You've fallen from time
This scare repeat of picture burning in your mind
Stil falling down
Cause for up there seems no hope of connection
To how this struggle has chosen a way of feeling down in deceptions
Searching for the ways agian
These illusions blocking this opinion
Of death and hypocrisies
Which carry no key to the solution
You're falling down...
Track Name: Tried To Breathe
Intentions not the same
This disease which carries your infections
This hate you feel
Your rage.. the pain of opposition
Your hate of sorrow
Confusing all such basic conceptions
This life of waste
A loss in turn which leads a mouth to
You tried to breath
And set aside nothing
Place this shield aside
A memory which leads to everyone else
Who in turn have lead your successions
A life your soul has never felt
Believe and conceive a truth
Faith lifts the healer
Cuts are stitched to erase
All of these unruly impurities
Try to clean the mind
And the inner-most soul
And don't try to fight
What stays the same to these blinded eyes
Your rage turns pain for proper...
Track Name: Simple Answers
In finding all these answers when the truth hides in the eyes...
of a strange and lonely heart paralyzed with might

Broken wounds picks the parts and plays the end
It slowly kills my patience and it drains my mind

In walking all this life with ablaze from a circle
Worry thoughts which never seem to mind

Killing my mind, wasting my time

Let me play my time I've suffered, hear my cries

Losing to defend yourself the shattered thoughts of the ignorant
The final part, the missing piece of your life

Losing to defend yourself the shattered thoughts of the ignorant
The final part, the missing piece of your life

Now dethrone the temptress, fold your pain inside
For the love of the emptiness dents crumble with pride

And to suffer the torture wounds straight from the bloodline
The shattered thoughts that feed the crude, open up your eyes

Broken wounds picks the parts and plays the end
It slowly kills my patience and it drains my mind

In find all these answers when the truth hides in the eyes...
of a strange and lonely heart paralyzed with might

Killing my mind, wasting my time
Track Name: Mistakes
Those days in which creator has made you
Have served a purpose in this so called life
Too far to betray destroy what comes through
Being left alone in this prison of time

Men follow betrayal

Never meant to be the things which so much harm you
Only meant to be the existence of life
Now the tantrums pass away the world deserts you
The faith which kept you at bay

Taken all the good you had away
Made the wrong decision, now the end you'll find

Not all alone what you have to build inside
To turn away would only shadow your pride

Mistakes! That you have made in trusting mankind
Mistakes! That you have made your turn fades away
Track Name: True To Oneself
Playing my part in this game of life the smart look for deception,
with no time to waste
Taking my back till the end there are, no exceptions
Finding all the truth inside and bleeding out the false

No time to wait my bonds will never break
I'll be myself till the end
No time to wait my bonds will never break
Stand with my crew till the end of time

In this game of life the smart look for deception
Dodging all the lies and bleeding out the false

I'll stand my ground wont ever turn away
True to oneself, myself
From the start until the end

Wondering where I stand with you
Leaving myself open to your lies
What could I do
Track Name: What Is Worth
When the false breathes down inside you
The emptiness knocks at your door
One instrument that cuts through it has demolished this one thing
To take a look around you
This thrown fit from open floor
To throw the stone then pursue it leaves this feeling of nothing
Your fallen destiny and pass this moment of this judgement as shown upon
And now destruction of this falseness has took whats gone
True indications leave minor burns
False indignation in a place where tears don’t earn in a society
False friends who know who they're simple
Lost false friends who know who deceive a life at any cost, what have you lost?
Track Name: A Distant Past
Betrayal- look into my eyes.
Fear theres no exception.
Mindd of thoughts.
Kill the demons inside, inside this cry.
These ancient figures.
This flame which can not cope.
It flaunts this memory.
Mindless who the thought controls, and watch the time as it fades into your wretched heart and dissolves your need to grow.
Leaving all your emptiness putting it aside.
In where lies wisdom.
This heart that grows so cold.
The simple failure- the fallen truth.
This chosen imprint which lays you down to rest has started something of disbelief.
Faults taken to your protect yourself words burn these scars- just the same and your failure has left you with nothing.
Thinking of the cries which felt no salvation.
Breaking all the ties severing the wounds in growing toward an answer- take hypocrisy disguised.
It overlooks the simpleness the pain grows to despise.
Track Name: Empty Face
Now thinking ways to hurt you, my thoughts
Which fill to your demise, in pain, the friend I despise

Broken the trust, you play on either side
Your anger, crushing your tries

Thinking to tie this friendship, the words burn me to control
This whole, which burns your own soul

And time, never got to know you
Your empty face, pain inside
Leaving me with cries, never got to feel you
Your face, dealt time

Breaking all the truth from your cries
Leaving all the pain in your stride

And take down this fortress, blood red from your own heart
Fighting back, with your cries, that die

And time never got to find you, yourself, this twisted blur
Blowing me, far away, expelling me
With time, so much time, you took my time, spent my time
Track Name: The Tables Turned
So might and dreadful you are said to be
The picture you betray will not convince me
Do not be proud though some have called on you
The pleasure that you gain wont be derived of me

I'l die not - you cant take me

The others you overthrow with your icy hands
Rebuilds parts of me you thought youd destroy
You think youre so clever now its your turn to die
So might and dreadful you are said to be I shall be eternal my soul will be free

So might and dreadful you are said to be
The pleasure that you gain wont be derived of me
Track Name: Time Out Of Mind
Instrumental
Track Name: All My Rage
Rage
All my rage
I'm taking this to my grave

Rage
All my rage

Now I see the corruptedness
Now I am the corruptedness

Rage
All my rage
