about

The album Fallen Out Of Line is the culmination of 3 years of on and off work by Peaks Of Valleys. It features a blend of programmed drums and synths, clean and thick electric guitars, and various acoustic elements poking in and out through the album. Vocals range from clean in close to covered and distant, and the lyrical focus is on the obstacles we place in our way as individuals, and how, or if, they can be overcome. Please enjoy it and feel free to contact Peaks Of Valleys at peaksofvalleys @ gmail.com.

Track Name: The Line
with a beg and a plea and a promise to run ahead
and a circumstance where nothing will hold you back
your ambition stacks to heights where you cannot reach
and a line now forms behind you to get a piece

the cost
to cease

and the line holds you down
throws your patience away
with the rest of today
look back, then look ahead

now you’re stuck as you try and change your priorities
in the line’s eyes it’s when you don’t try that you succeed
and with nothing left to move on from where you’ve been
you fall out of line and give up before you begin

one loss
no wins

and the line holds you down
throws your patience away
with the rest of today
look back, then look ahead

and the line holds you down
as it moves with no end
as it snakes, as it bends
to catch you in it’s grasp
Track Name: Unsolved
dark. a gray world wraps
you around this box
wake as the rain falls
run as danger calls

a wave of night enclosed the sky
a path that’s blocked, unsolved
to late for light when all was night

light around the bend
in a tree truck land
signs, electric light
spark a shocking sight

a wave of night enclosed the sky
a path that’s blocked, unsolved
to late for light when all was night
Track Name: Like a Daisy
on your death bed, when your future’s gone, with your memories
times and places, with everyone you know, every moment, gone.
losing each one, with every blink they’re gone, no tomorrow today
breathe your last breath, and it takes a shape, like a daisy

like a daisy

like a daisy

like a daisy, and it takes a shape, your last breath
tomorrow, today, with a blink it’s gone, losing each one
every moment, with everyone you know, times and places
with no memories, when your futures now, will you live life.

like a daisy
Track Name: Crest
I see you standing with your back against a wall
shrugged shoulders lean back, support yourself so you don’t fall
but you’re in a corner, where all you get is what you see
but now times are changing, a broken wall lays at your feet

change will come to all you know and love
change will come to all you know and love
change will come to all you know and love
change will come to all you know and love
Track Name: The Crown
I fought unheard, tongue tied
you thought your word was right
and it was right

do you wonder if it’s coming down?
do you wonder if you wear the crown?
if you find out what is going wrong
would you follow what needs to be done?

a wind, a change, of tide
always away, a light
and it was bright

do you wonder when it’s coming down?
do you wonder if you wear the crown?
if you find out what is going wrong
would you follow what needs to be done?
Track Name: The Cracks
the less you need, the less you want, the more you get
a lazy breeze, a lazy man, a busy mind
turns a new leaf, turns into dust under your feet
look where you are
look what I am

slip into the cracks they fall through
slip into the cracks they fall through

an older soul, not old enough, keeps looking back
to find his role, to fit a plan, to be his own
it set me straight, I’m on the rails, and off the street
look what you’ve done
look what I am

slip into the cracks they fall through
slip into the cracks they fall through
slip into the cracks they fall through
slip into the cracks they fall through
slip into the cracks they fall through
Track Name: Reconciled
a shiver of cold sweeps shoulders bent
and endless tree line’s all that’s left
shrugging off the loneliness
reconciled in peaceful bliss
the end.
