Debut Single from the enigmatic New Progressive Rock band Within Rust, perfect for fans of Radiohead, Periphery, Rush and Deftones.


The days are getting longer
In a shortened kinda way
I catch the words but fumble,
As they all just slip away
And maybe I’m just cheap
And maybe just as well
Another good damned reason
When everything’s so swell

Well you’ve never been one
To stumble with the fairies
Your god is in a coffin
You’re not sure how to bury
The love has gone hollow
And you’ve seen it all before
It’s the quality of life in the land of folding doors (doors)

Watch me, watch you
It’s not like he knows just what to do
Watch me, change all of you
I tried so hard to make this true

Now I’m the sun (sun)

Could you stand up
For just a moment please
See, you’re a silhouette
On a cosmic breeze
And you’re tempting time
Who’s licking his chops
And you’re such a failed creature
Give the architect my props

Watch you, now watch the sea
Recollect your consciousness
And tell me what you see
See in the realm of dreams
Reality seems dull
So revel in my rains
My reign
And revel in the fall (fall)

Watch me, (I am not alone) watch you (I will not atone)
It’s not like he knows just what to do
Watch me, (you are all alone) change all of you (you will now atone)
I tried so hard to make this true

Now I’m the sun

Now I’m the sun

Within Rust Vancouver, British Columbia

It's a unique kind of ethic that results in songs like “Rorschach”, with a clear ode to 90's Post Hardcore, and “The Taking” a Killers esque Indie track with a nod to Pink Floyd. In mixing such disparate genres as Progressive Rock and Post-hardcore, there’s a lot of room for error, but Within Rust winds these and more into a strange and accessible Indie Rock package. ... more
