about

Above the Din Boston, Massachusetts

Above the Din means: apocalyptic rock, East Coast Gloom, an award-winning trio. Literally it means: "transcend the noise." As they cut through the static, ATD does just that.

They play a mix of heyday grunge and doom-laden blues. They're "definitely a must-see if you're in the Boston area!" – 20 Watts Magazine

Track Name: Born Into This
I was born the second son
With a heart of rebellion and a silver tongue
Growing up in the dirty Mitt
Learn to fend for yourself
Never take no shit
I never paid too much attention
To make the grade
School was never right for me

I was born to rock n' roll
I got a restless temper and a troubled soul
Wasting time doing what I'm told
I let the man choke me out in a stranglehold
Lived in denial
It helped to sleep at night
Worked for a while
But something had to give

Live how you want to live
And die with no regret

I was born to roll those dice
Never known moderation
Moved vice to vice

Always willing to sacrfice
Moralization's a drunken night
They say I'll fry
So walk the straight and narrow
Do what you like
It's all the same to me

Live how you want to live
And die with no regrets
Live how you want to live
And die with no regrets
Track Name: Waiting For Worms
I sacrifice my free born life for my country
Tomorrow I could have tags on my feet
This solemn truth I do accept
I won't escape
When I die i will be forgotten

We're waiting
Waiting for worms
Everyone will have their turn

Another day was spent in vain like days before
Fighting extremists and their old beliefs
In God we trust thats why we're here
To save the pure
My enemy thinks the same thing

We're waiting
Waiting for worms
Everyone will have their turn
Track Name: Miss Information
She never sleeps here
No time to waste
So many others in her database
Call her Miss Information
That is her name and age

She knows what we want
Before we do
Each generation buys her fake news
We all are lost without her
We have become enslaved

Speaks to us in code
Streaming all our souls
Interest bought and sold
This modern love
Learned infatuation
Fuels our temptation
Is this desperation?
Or modern love?

She's everywhere now
Its hard to breath
Behind a black screen she watches me
There's emptiness about her
Pheromones wane, heartache

Speaks to us in code
Streaming all our souls
Interest bought and sold
This modern love
Learned infatuation
Fuels our tempation
Is this desperation?
Or modern love?
Track Name: Lucky Sixes
There’s a place where six is lucky
I’ve been told to go
Party nation’s destination, far from winter cold

Unwind- the drinks are free
All night - you’re who you want to be
Daylight - one thing you’ll never see
Neon lights up sin city

Red light district, stripped of limits
Round and round you’ll fool
Dirty money. Games get ugly.
Darkness knows no rules

Gravesite - you failed to fear
Flames rise - the heat begins to sear
Snake eyes - the hounds of hell draw near
The hive mind lured you down here

Should my demons be maimed?
Would life get too tame?
Could I be satisfied without vices?
Whatever faith we weave
Or if we disbelieve
A Hell surrounds us! Above and underground
Track Name: Cradle to Grave
There’s a cost for what we do
It’s coming back to me and you
Though doubt is often on our minds
We take more then we need
The world was made for you and me
Enjoy until there’s nothing left, my friends

Unmade memories ahead
And words we haven’t yet said
What will happen in the end
There’s a cost for what we use
The price we pay is ours to choose
Why waste today wishing it away, my friends?

Days are growing colder much at stake to lose
From cradle to grave

Evolution's greatest mistake
Makes our mother shake in pain
All the sickness lying within
Comes to life through ambition

Stare into that paper cup
Empty except for band luck
Out debt depends on here and now
There were years we had it good
Then again it’s all misunderstood
It’s time we all just move along my friends

Days are growing colder much at stake to lose
From cradle to grave

Evolution's greatest mistake
Makes our mother shake in pain
All the sickness lying within
Comes to life through ambition
Track Name: Stained Glass
A bottle of wine with a penny to my name
I’ll drink to glory
Drink til I feel no shame
Tonight’s the night when
I drink til I forget my own name
Cus I don’t care anymore

These city lights have
Got me down
The hope of stardom
Got me spinning round
Think that I’d be
So much farther by now
But I don’t care anymore

Guess I’m free
To do want I want
But I don’t want anything
Guess that means
I got what I want
Got what I need
Living lies with shameless grace
Doing time at my own pace
The fools that surround me
The devil he hounds me
For the soul of a good man

I’m looking at my own reflection
The lines are clear
A life addiction
Think that I should
Put you down but I won’t
Cus I don’t care anymore

Guess I’m free
To do want I want
But I don’t want anything
Guess that means
I got what I want
Got what I need
Living lies with shameless grace
Doing time at my own pace
The fools that surround me
The devil he hounds me
For the soul of a good man
Track Name: Fall in Line
Day in day out lost in the grind
Sure as shit you're losing your mind
There must be more to life

Feeling trapped in your 9 to 5
If you quit how will you survive?
you will never know unless you try

I don't have all the answers
That I must admit
All I know is I can no longer live like this
How can we stem the rising tide?
Or should we all fall in line?
Oh No!

You and I both raised to consume
What we own is what defines you
We have all been fed
Corporate lies

Convenience is what we adore
Gluttony, can I have some more?
Splitting at the seams
Land of the free

I don't have all the answers
That I must admit
All I know is I can no longer live like this
How can we stem the rising tide?
Or should we all fall in line?
Oh No!
Track Name: Same, Same
I'm feeling good yes I'm feeling no pain
Just like I should like I'm high on cocaine
All the same, same
All the same, same

I'm feeling strong yes I'm ready to fight
Some say it's wrong, but we say it's alright
All the same, same
All the same, same

What do you do?
When you want to
Tear down the walls around you

Do you feel it?
Do you feel it?
I hope you do

What do you do?
When you want to
Tear down the walls around you

Do you feel it?
Do you feel it?
I know you do

I'm feeling good, yes I'm feeling no pain
Just like I should like I'm high on cocaine
All the same, same
All the same, same

I'm feeling strong, yes I'm ready to fight
Some say it's wrong, but we say it's alright
All the same, same
All the same, same

What do you do?
When you want to
Tear down the walls around you

Do you feel it?
Do you feel it?
I hope you do

What do you do?
When you want to
Tear down the walls around you

Do you feel it?
Do you feel it?
I know you do
Track Name: Common Sense
The fear
that we feel today
The shame
brought to family names
We're the ones to blame

In tears we watched this happen
While others stood and smiled
We never were united
Our nation's funeral pyre

I know
Hate will never die
We pass it down through younger minds
Kill to win
Stack up all those dollars
Children pay
For the sins of fathers

There's hope
for a better way
There's strenghth
built on past mistakes
Now's the time to change

In tears we watched this happen
While others stood and smiled
We never were united
Our nation's funeral pyre

I know
Hate will never die
We pass it down through younger minds
Kill to win
Stack up all those dollars
Children pay
For the sins of fathers
Track Name: Ill at Ease
Delusions of how I should be
Dictated by society
Self loathing madness
Chemical in-balance
Always on edge I'm ill at ease

All that I want is some piece of mind
I'm sure to find it through naive eyes

My culture sways the way I think
Another puppet on a string
What is this sadness?
Chemical in-balance
Always on edge I'm ill at ease

All that I want is some piece of mind
I'm sure to find it through naive eyes

I know I'll always be
Ill at ease
I know I'll always be
ill at ease
Track Name: Vamps
They surround us though we seldom notice
Some say they're friends
Always first to put down our convictions
Live to condescend
Negative energy is what they feed on
Parasites of woe
Derogative history, venomous egos
Sound like someone you know?

We need to call out these vampires
Believe they do exist
Free yourself from their cold fingers
Or be a host for them

We have all been prayed on in the past
Likely still today
Ignorance has slowly taken over
Vampires dig our graves
Negative energy is what they feed on
Soul sucking foes
They're to blame, they let shame
Drag them away in the undertow

We need to call out these vampires
Believe they do exist
Free yourself from their cold fingers
Or be a host for them
Track Name: Calloused Heart
It's in the words that you say
the meanings lost
you betrayed
Who you are now today
take the time
and get it straight

The life you knew has changed
spinning round
day to day
Survived games of shame
rules change and you're to blame

I believe
I believe

The only way to get by
is to laugh at all
your mistakes
Searching for your next high
Spending all you earn
try to replicate

You'll never make ends meet
when you're stumbling over your two feet
You're set in you're old ways
everyone you knew
forgot your name

I believe
I believe

The only way to get by
is to laugh at all
your mistakes
Searching for your next high
Spending all you earn
try to replicate

You'll never make ends meet
when you're stumbling over your two feet
You're set in you're old ways
everyone you knew
forgot your name

I believe
I believe

Deep down you"re the same as when we were kids
A heart of gold
tainted by years of sin
It took years for me to forgive what you've done
It's over now
I'll see you on the rising sun

I hope you found some peace
You could of had it all right here
You were a friend so dear
I'll think of you
through falling tears

Through falling tears
