Modern Suspects

6 albums

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 don’t believe / That I am the only one That feels the way / I do It’s hard to know, to know for sure / Just what you’re living for But I wish I knew x2 Why one of my friends / died so young Drowned in the water / that he drank from I’m confused / I feel so confused Don’t know which way to go / Don’t know what to believe She said, come walk with me / come talk with me And let me tell you why I don’t believe in God I’ve been through more than you can see / I’ve suffered tragedy And I feel so alone / I don’t wanna be alone Somebody please stand next to me I’m not sure how to get where I’m trying to be I don’t understand / And I don’t get the plan It’s so hard to know / Do you know for sure what you’re living for

Lyrics:

We’re dressing nice these days And I always have the right words to say We don’t need filters now Here in the future now I’m living in my / in my Living in my mind But it’s 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 / there’s plenty of room for two You don’t 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:

Don’t confuse me, don’t confuse me with the rest You’ve been living rent free in my head Pheromones got me so high, outside Taking off past the furthest reach of the sky CHORUS Now we’re sleeping here in space Take the covers, take the covers off Turn my way now face to face We’ll have a moment, and we’re gonna own it We’re sleeping in space x2 V2 Don’t confuse me, this is no mistake I’m not the type to cut ties and break Whatever chance we have at lasting romance You’re 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 We’ll have a moment, and we’re gonna own it BRIDGE Around here there’s no need to worry about time Around here you can dance to the beat in your own mind Cuz we’re moving, we’re moving just like the sun x2 They say things like heaven is only in your mind But when I’m 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 You’ve 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 heart’s so cold, beats slow The truth is - I’m letting you go this time - so I need you

Lyrics:

I don’t recall - was it your fault love, or mine? We said goodbye Life has changed and so have I I guess that’s a consequence of time I just wanted you to know I’m fine Chorus I’m on my own and on my way I’m so much stronger than you know The fog is think but I can see This light ahead of me V2 I don’t recall - you ever listening to me We played pretend Maybe someday we’ll met again And on that same day we’ll be friends Until then you should know I’m fine

Lyrics:

I wish that I, I really wish that I Was who I thought I’d 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 I’m most real when I sleep (DRIFT) So here I am, so here I am again It’s no surprise to me That I can’t sleep And should you ask, and should you dare to ask I’ll 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 I’m most real when I sleep (DRIFT) I’m 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 - I’m terrified You could be the one In my head we fill a room with all our friends  We’re dressed in black and white It’s okay though to be scared, cause after all We’re just some kids with a couple scars You must be some kind of athlete, you’ve been running on my mind like a track meet At a fast beat, since last week, you’ve had me, since lap three I can’t get you off my mental, I’m 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 I’m tripping, cause it hit me how to find a misses And it is terrifying, but I know I’ll feel regret if I ain’t ever try it, right ? I think we both know what’s next That’s why we traveled this far And its ok to be scared Were just some kids with a couple scars Even though you don’t 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 don’t play pretend Touch the world’s highest heights Slam the door now chase the night This time you can say what you need No I don’t mind Won’t 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 I’ll admit I’m scared like everybody else But I’ll stand longer than anybody else Than anybody else
