Many have said that we are lost in our apathy. We are oblivious to our vanity. We are prisoners of anxiety. We are suspected of chasing the unattainable, of daring to embrace individuality, of hoping beyond hope. We use this hope as a guide. We unify with one goal in mind: to rise above the detractor's noise. We are all Modern Suspects."
In seeking to define why they make music, Modern Suspects solidified this statement after many a motive questioning conversation. "Demons in the Night" is a turning point for the band. A lynchpin of the the band's live set, the song had rested in their ether for over a year. The chorus stands as a declaration of defiance in the face of adversity, an ode to their axiom - "Demons in the night, you tempt me / With the white flag you gave me / I'll set your flag to flame / Make a torch and light my way."
Following its release on July 10, 2017, "Demons in the Night" will be represented in an adventurous music video released by SneakyBoy Studios. Filmed in various abandoned buildings, caves, mountains, and bridges around Colorado, the footage was collected despite a run in with a gun-wielding man at one shooting location. While the guys don't intend on making a habit of risking their lives for their art, they can nonetheless say they're willing to sacrifice.
A staple of the Colorado music scene, Modern Suspects has frequented venues such as The Gothic, The Bluebird, and The Black Sheep, as well as appearances at Broomfield's 1st Bank Center and Fort Collins' Moby Arena. Their songs have enjoyed airplay on 103.9 KRXP, 93.3 KTCL, and 94.3 KMAX.
Lyrics:I dont believe / That I am the only one That feels the way / I do Its hard to know, to know for sure / Just what youre living for But I wish I knew x2 Why one of my friends / died so young Drowned in the water / that he drank from Im confused / I feel so confused Dont know which way to go / Dont know what to believe She said, come walk with me / come talk with me And let me tell you why I dont believe in God Ive been through more than you can see / Ive suffered tragedy And I feel so alone / I dont wanna be alone Somebody please stand next to me Im not sure how to get where Im trying to be I dont understand / And I dont get the plan Its so hard to know / Do you know for sure what youre living for
Lyrics:Were dressing nice these days And I always have the right words to say We dont need filters now Here in the future now Im living in my / in my Living in my mind But its not that easy Trying to say what I need to say I want to cross oceans I want to with no one but you No more wine by the glass And my tint shields the camera flash Charity for some art But we prefer latte art Walk on in, walk on in / theres plenty of room for two You dont know what to wear / to match by boutonniere Designer life with fatal flaws / opposite sides of imagined walls Silence is the loudest sound / I need a break before I hit the ground I keep trying to say
Lyrics:Dont confuse me, dont confuse me with the rest Youve been living rent free in my head Pheromones got me so high, outside Taking off past the furthest reach of the sky CHORUS Now were sleeping here in space Take the covers, take the covers off Turn my way now face to face Well have a moment, and were gonna own it Were sleeping in space x2 V2 Dont confuse me, this is no mistake Im not the type to cut ties and break Whatever chance we have at lasting romance Youre worth the risk, you are worth the dance CHORUS CHORUS 2 If you want to feel my love Take the covers, take the covers off Turn my way now face to face Well have a moment, and were gonna own it BRIDGE Around here theres no need to worry about time Around here you can dance to the beat in your own mind Cuz were moving, were moving just like the sun x2 They say things like heaven is only in your mind But when Im with you here, baby you prove the lie Just like the sun, just like the sun
Lyrics:Next time that you say we're fine Youve sold yourself a lie You know I believe if you want more You should fight like I've fought For the both of us CHORUS So hold me a little bit closer - cause I'm afraid we're falling apart I'm right here like I've always been - you're so distant V2 Your words used to make me blush But now they're just conversation So take these words written in stone Frozen in ice alone - my hearts so cold, beats slow The truth is - Im letting you go this time - so I need you
Lyrics:I dont recall - was it your fault love, or mine? We said goodbye Life has changed and so have I I guess thats a consequence of time I just wanted you to know Im fine Chorus Im on my own and on my way Im so much stronger than you know The fog is think but I can see This light ahead of me V2 I dont recall - you ever listening to me We played pretend Maybe someday well met again And on that same day well be friends Until then you should know Im fine
Lyrics:I wish that I, I really wish that I Was who I thought Id be Back when I was young But how can I, oh how can I become What I want when my hands contradict my thoughts, Oh Drift away, into my dreams Im most real when I sleep (DRIFT) So here I am, so here I am again Its no surprise to me That I cant sleep And should you ask, and should you dare to ask Ill be first to admit What you see is a mask Wait I think I might be too far From who I want to be Wait I think I might be drifting From who I should be Im most real when I sleep (DRIFT) Im most real when I dream (DRIFT)
Lyrics:I remember when I thought, I thought that I Would never let you down So thank God you chose to see, to see the good You were a heaven sent down Can you see it? Can you see it? ? - Ah - Im terrified You could be the one In my head we fill a room with all our friends Were dressed in black and white Its okay though to be scared, cause after all Were just some kids with a couple scars You must be some kind of athlete, youve been running on my mind like a track meet At a fast beat, since last week, youve had me, since lap three I cant get you off my mental, Im sweating cause this could put an end to Single days of bachelor prowling, thought I had it figured out now its off balance But I like it, excitement, talk and talk I wonder where the night went We we both have had a scarred past, used to run from love, had a hard dash Reminiscing, now Im tripping, cause it hit me how to find a misses And it is terrifying, but I know Ill feel regret if I aint ever try it, right ? I think we both know whats next Thats why we traveled this far And its ok to be scared Were just some kids with a couple scars Even though you dont know it
Lyrics:Words on my mind I don't know how to say them But I still try anyway The voices scream "Odds are not in your favor" But my ears aren't listening Demons in the Night Ooh, you tempt me With the white flag The white flag you gave me I'll set your flag to flame Make a torch and light the way Demons in the Night Hello self doubt Always there by my side You're so loud tonight You keep me awake Still I dream, still I'm dreaming tonight I see your end in sight I've made my mind up I'm staying
Lyrics:Rendezvous with who I am Teach em I dont play pretend Touch the worlds highest heights Slam the door now chase the night This time you can say what you need No I dont mind Wont let your lies take hold of me Step back and watch Just watch me change the world voices of the skeptic minds Paint me with their simple lines Fire burning underneath Fueled by their disbelief Ill admit Im scared like everybody else But Ill stand longer than anybody else Than anybody else
