Focus on the voices in the head that's been decollated. It's on a table in the next room, garnished and waiting for you to consume. Eat up, the presentation's divine. Smiling despite the screams echoing inside. The love letter on the tape recorder, a reminder to put your affairs in order. Yet you forgot. Your poor widow left alone. I think I can smell the passion burning away, exhaled in rings to fan away or to stare at as it dissipates. The smoke and me one and the same. Bereft of all bliss, I'm difficult to convince not to reminisce on the last kiss. Mournful muse, where has the fire gone? Did you snuff it out when you moved on? I'd make a list of everything I'd forgotten... What was that you said? What was that? Oh nothing. All the beautiful lights inside your head will burn away, the charred remains will have not to say. I'd make a list of everything but all I remember is the smoke exhaled in rings to fan away... So I'll just focus on the dull ache inside my head.

The Prescribed Alberta

An emo/post-hardcore quartet hailing from Camrose, Alberta. The Prescribed takes the desparate sounds of bands like Jimmy Eat World and Brand and adds a progressive tilt and a harder edge. Complex chord progressions and unique song structures enrich the heavy-hearted lyrics to create something new.
