Hand of Silk 03:28
V1: Gathered in the mine and shackled by the bone Pieces of the mind and desires of the fool Poisoned to the tone of what I see in you Feeding on my dead friends and taking what I choose V2: Stolen from the crowd and thrown into a cell Latched onto the bars and summoned to the floor Talking bout my dead friends and If i'd bleed for them What's it mean to me and what's in it for you Chorus: What's it mean to you for me Held up by the role of man Wrapped inside a hand of silk Carved into a mask of blood B: For you For me For you
V1: A crystal palace on an unknown plain The holy mace of disarray A shallow hole to wash it out A cleaner way to say farewell V2: sinking feet and a soulless dance What's to say when you're insane beating drums and the heavy sun Roll away from this unknown grave C: Fill his lungs Cut him loose Unconcerned Strung up by design Tasteless boy Broken toys You and I Strung up by design B: Fill him up
Eyes of Eden 04:51
V1 : Gather around now, it's your beast and burden His every thoughts lie, to your creator He's the master, and you're the key Clawing sideways in the creation V2 : Burst of lightning, your eyes of eden Take my hand child, and part the water Plague of darkness, a simple reason Count me out now, I'll leave a pardon C: Seeking out what isn't mine Falling in and letting go Piece by piece it goes to show What's it mean to be alone
Tin Man 03:25
V1: Hey soldier, marching down the road Poor soldier, little would we know Dead soldier, where would you of gone Little soldier, why'd you have to go V2: Hey soldier, this is where we'll meet Hey soldier, this is where we'll greet Poor soldier, tore apart his chest Dead soldier, heaven is his friend V3: Hey soldier, where are you now A soldier, marching in the clouds A soldier, doing what he's told Dead soldier, doesn't have a soul C: Packed into a stairway which leads nowhere Fall into the void and scream but no ones there Choose your battles wisely as you are simply a tin man in hell B: You seem so out of sorts Didn't you get the memo We all are bound to fry
Gone Girl 03:48
V1: Lie awake in the fields of another gone girl of mine oh but I know where this will go and I sway to my knees and I kiss the ground beneath my feet Cause I know oh I know just let it go V2: And I pass the statues of a man covered in glass who sides with the one I knew in the fields of gloom when the stakes were you cause I know oh I know, just let it go C: Sweet Love of Mine Sink into me B: Don't let go you've got a heart to let it show Don't blow fire you've got a know to let it go Don't reside in the echoes of the mind Hearts of gold mended in a vile
Black Cat 04:26
V1: Towards the black cat of the night a hint of the fight distorts what we see and what we know Crash into the canvas of a plain a taste of your grace ignites a flame V2: Brush off all the dust the pixies and the lust a coroner to bust a simple plan With my hatchet and my cross I will not confront I'll become of one Inside you C: Take you away from the mounds of pain Stand to the beat of the marching feet B: It's just a funny tune Just crash and burn A stack of two So bleak but true A kiss of death A table without any legs
Chariots 04:01
V1: A Sweetness fills my lungs A tongue that's like a gun The softest words that Ive heard Convinced me of your concern V2: This voice that's inside my head Tells me to pick "up the dead" Dissecting all that I've known A slave to this terrible show V3: And now I roam through the court Sick and broken to the core But that's okay because I Have nobody by my side C: Golden chariots in silk run free Wrapped in a blanket of it all, what more Discretion reeks of hope B: Shoot it up and take your time A ticking clock writes tomorrows lie And that's okay because I am fine Leave me be and don't say goodbye
Cellar Dogs 04:48
V1: Green wide eyes in a haze rattling Cut and burn loosen up in a night Parasite in my head in my bones V2: Straddling on the floor with a knife You and I we burn alive take it all What's there to a secret for you C: Oh god damn, this ride Cellar dogs, unite Plastic hands, cold eyes If we meet, I do
V1: What you know and what you see A god to us is a god for me V2: See you run and cross my feet Let them in and let them be A moment of led you to be A busted image on a burnt-out screen C: You don't know what you don't see A mighty palace for an unborn king Chew your meat and spit your greens A quiet hammock on a crowded tree B: Come along and join the fun A healthy taste of your afterthoughts
See the Sun 03:48
V1: Descending to us A cloud in the sun Don't fear the one Just listen to the voice A booming reminder Of what was once one Apart of you Apart of me recedes V2: Close all your eyes Feed off the light The seven seas Are glistening at once A break in the wind A soft tasteless sin Divinity, deity What more? C: Let's see the sun Let's have our fun Let's be of one for now
V1: A cancer to the soul A hammer to the dome Brother please come home Drifting in the wind A reason for the bends An epiphany for it all V2: Cryptic to the touch Desires feed the lust A phony intuition Eyes that burn to touch A hand that turns to dust Chewing out your guts C: Gone with the wind you sail B: Run away

For all inquires related to the music (AKA you run a radio station and want free copies, want a review copy, etc etc) :

"...'Kevlar, Kryptonite, Gloria' is a diverse and delightful album full to brimming over with solid musicianship and strong vocal performances and is packed to the rafters with songs that, thanks to strong songwriting skills and clever arrangements, are not reliant on just riffs to pull them through." - Desert Psychlist

"Throughout this album when I listen to this it really teleports me to the winter for some reason, it really has a cool grunge sound but also incorporating fuzz and stoner elements. It’s really fantastic!" - Mammoth Tongue Reviews

"...Intelligent songwriting, superb instrumental work, varied use of different genres and fantastic production... The Stone Eye have created a solid and superbly entertaining album that will no doubt see the band’s reputation grow steadily within the Stoner Rock/Metal scene." - Outlaws of the Sun

"They're fucking fantastic. Their sound is deep, delectable, dark, and rich. Frankly, no one should be surprised if they’re selling out stadiums someday. Each and every song within their existing discography is skillful and masterful. Had they been around a few decades earlier, Alice In Chains wouldn’t have stood a damn chance." - Amplify

"...The Stone Eye draws heavily from both the '90s grunge scene and the doom-stoner scene we all know and love. Taking notes from bands like Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Black Sabbath, Ghost, Sleep, and a slew of similar bands, The Stone Eye have crafted a fine album that doesn’t merely sound like their favorite bands, but succeeds in creating a distinct sound all their own." - Doomed & Stoned

"I was in Seattle in the early 90s at the Offramp and the other grunge bars so believe me when I say The Stone Eye delivers the real deal." - Fuzzy Cracklins Presents

"Yankees." - Stoner & Co.
