about

The Nimbus Austin, Texas

The Nimbus is an electronic band from Austin, Texas. With musical influences spanning alternative and indie rock, trip hop, dub, industrial, jazz, blues, and more, they use haunting melodies, lush atmospheres and mangled electronics to envelop the listener. Mixed with a love of eclectic instrumentation and effects, the result is glitched electropop as foreign as it is familiar. ... more

Track Name: The Party
There's a party in the west wing
And everybody's dead
When they're done sifting through the pockets
They unlock the doors again
And the hosts pass out the favors
and spirits blind the eyes
All free things come with a price
They know both yours and mine

And they let more of us in
And they let more of us in
Charging for their sins
Until we're gone

Left with all these stories
And censored black broadcasts
Searching for a parable
Messages from the past
And its not that they lack reason
But it seems the case
When led by greedy fools and wickedness
No one should feel safe

And they let more of us in
And they let more of us in
Charging for their sins
Until we're gone.
Track Name: Well Worth It
I woke up smelling scents and feeling fleeting visions slip away...
And No matter how I clamored to hold on there was nothing to make them stay...

You said ‘Write them down on paper and they might not disappear...’
And as right as you were, it wasn't anything that I wanted to hear...

Pull on the mask
Cover up the hurt
Keep the visions in the dark
Until tonight when they erupt

Pull on the mask
Cover the hurt
Keep the visions in the dark
Until tonight when they erupt again and reignite the spark

Holding the knowledge, speaking softly, seeing faces stained with
tears...
From the wrong, the hurt, and everything that we've manifested here...
And I don't want to release you.

Pull on the mask
Cover the hurt
Keep the visions in the dark
Until tonight when they erupt

Pull on the mask
Cover the hurt
Keep the visions in the dark
Until tonight when they erupt again and reignite the spark

All the voices ask politely
Begging for attention
Details seem to matter less
And I feel as though I'm stationary...
Stuck in mud...
Running in circles...
Biting lip and tongue...
Waiting for the moment...
When I have the chance to become...

What you wanted me to be
What the gods and mice and men between envision as free
To embody confidence and step with strides that knock down cities.

Letting nothing stand between
Letting nothing stand between

What you wanted me to be
What the gods and mice and men between envision as free
To embody confidence and step with strides that knock down cities.

Letting nothing stand between
Letting nothing stand between
Regaining consciousness while retaining the entire dream
Regaining consciousness while retaining the entire dream
It was well worth it.
Track Name: The Impasse
Everybody's got their secrets
Everybody has those times
When they feel like they could never hope
To feel satisfied

And when we all serve our purpose
You'd know that we'd not disappoint
I can remember when we used to laugh
When we used to laugh

I remember when...

Every child has it's reason
And everybody may respect
Although we're still embattled with these lives
That we've all compromised

Birthed in hope without reason
The mottled, spattered blood
Drips into the grooves
The sacrifice is made

I remember when...
Track Name: Second Guess
And i don't know just what you need
I feel as though I've lost my mind again
And i don't know what to do this time
I just don't know what to say
(but it could mean anything at all)

I can't see what this meant to me
You knew that it was more than a game
And though i'd known by now that
It was something entirely less sane
(it was the same)

Steadfast is the mind
Losing over time
I don't know why i can't ever hope
That you'd open up your eyes and then believe
(open up your eyes)
What this meant to everybody
What this meant to everybody

I can't open up your eyes
(looking to see and to believe that)
Why you don't realize
What this means
And it seems like it's far from over...

I can't open up my eyes
(looking to see and to believe that)
Why you don't realize
What this means
And it seems like it's far from over.
Track Name: Little White Lies
Little white lies can tell the truth
And if I'm wrong will you need proof?
And if I'm right will you promise me
To always savor your humanity

Chasing halos in the sky
Carry me with your mind open wide
Carry me on metal wings
What emotions will she bring?

Be with me

Little white lies can tell the truth
And if I'm right will you need proof?
My valentine has hollow eyes
All because of your lies

Chasing halos in the sky
Carry me with your mind open wide
Carry me on metal wings
What emotions will she bring?

Be with me

Chasing halos in the sky
Carry me with your mind open wide
Carry me on metal wings
What emotions will she bring?
Tearing at me like a disease
Always easier when making me plead
You're the bearer of these things
Always the bearer of these things

Be with me
Track Name: The Giants
I said I'd meet my friend down at the tavern
To sit a spell and share a drink
Two whiskies deep he said,
‘Blame George and Paper Collar! But thanks for all the publicity...

...You're not alone in thinkin' 'bout the water
Or about the human soul...
Look in the eyes of every sheep before its slaughter,
Eager and scared and gullible.’

Back when the giants roamed the earth...
Back when they drank of the seas...
Back when the giants roamed the earth...
So free.

‘If I could I'd sell a man the shirt that he's wearin’,
Just to prove a simple fact...
Willin' to turn your pockets inside-out for silly stories?
You really think you deserve it on your back?

...You're not alone in thinkin' 'bout the culture
They been busy tryin' to suppress...
It never mattered much to me,
The colors on your palette,
S'long's i know you got ethics.’

Back when the giants roamed the earth...
Back when they drank of the seas...
Back when the giants roamed the earth...
So free.

He asked ‘Why'd you get so quiet?
You've been nursin' every drink...
I know it's tough, seein' the world for what it is,
'A sucker every minute', so to speak.’

I said, ‘It stains my tongue when I talk about the country...
When's the last time you felt relaxed?’
With a grin he shot back, ‘Back when the giants still roamed free."
Finishing his drink, he paid and walked out with a laugh...

Back when the giants roamed the earth...
Back when they drank of the seas...
Back when the giants roamed the earth...
So free...

Back when the giants roamed the earth...
Back when they drank deep of the seas...
Back when the giants roamed the earth...
So free.
Track Name: Breaking Ions
So we're showing signs of break up
Push and pull the makeup
We're spinning through the trees
But the leaves, they cannot take it
Policy is truth
But the truth is strange like fiction
The pieces come together but they're suffering division...

And the mind is a weapon I'm told
Taste from the fruit and see what unfolds
Thoughts spread along the eventual horizon
Deception is a mask, man
Pull it from your eyes, it's...

It's time to take a trip up into outer space
A time and place where we can never be replaced
A single cell stuck surfing somewhere within the singularity
And it might seem simple, maybe deceptively so
You never noticed, I just wanted you to know that I know
I never thought that we would be the ones still searching for the energies...
All the energies involved.

So precious are the rules that don't define us
I see you in your tower
Looking down
So occupious

And while the rabble might shake the rubble down
You can rebuild to appeal
And Reposition your crown
Pour a molotov and kick in the sound
For another system
That systematically abuses
Confuses
Diffuse this
It's useless
Perhaps you should refuse, it's...

It's time to take a trip up into outer space
A time and place where we can never be replaced
A single cell stuck surfing somewhere within the singularity
And it might seem simple, maybe deceptively so
You never noticed, I just wanted you to know that I know
I never thought that we would be the ones still searching for the energies...
All the energies involved.
