about

Sasquatch Los Angeles, California

Drawing on influences from 70's metal, rock, and psychedelia, Sasquatch falls somewhere between an amalgamation of Black Sabbath, old Soundgarden, Deliverance-era Corrosion of Conformity, Mountain, and a bastardized version of Grand Funk Railroad.

Track Name: The Message
If it makes you feel any better
Well the love that I had for you is almost gone

If it makes you feel any better
Covered in hair, covered in lies I covered for you

Walk the sidewalks home at night
Baby all night long

I’ve got a message
I’ve got a message here for you

If it makes you feel any better
Suffered the lies, deadened my eyes, I just don’t know

But you talk, talk, talk
I can’t understand but the world keeps turning
Covered in hair, covered in lies I covered for you
Track Name: Eye Of The Storm
Finding holes in the fabric of your mind
Chasing lore of some other one another time

Shining flaws in the fetters of sunshine
Everything’s yours, everything’s yours

Please don’t break the silence
It’s deafening roar
This time I can’t ignore
Holding the prize bent on owning things so lovely

Pressing on in the storm
Through the sands of time
Facing hordes in the 7th moon the 7th time

Why can’t you just get out of my head some time
Never quite sure, never quite sure

And they fight for their honor
And they hold their own separate ties
And they both remain
Everything’s lost and their fine


The white horse is symbolic of course
Led by the prophets they say
In thine glory, the autocrats worry
Opuses paved by their graves

It haunts their eyes
Wandering alibis
Rise of the storm
The eye of the storm passes by

The tides rolling, his honor bestowing
Fracturing waves on parade
Glass eye probing, their numbers all-knowing
Festering mobs are restrained

And they fight for their honor
And they hold their own separate ties
And they both remain nailed to the cross
Time marches on
Everything’s lost and their fine
Track Name: Sweet Lady
Well, storm is rising
Tell what you see
Lord I’m so far gone
I can barely breathe

Just wanna love you
Baby all the time
And I don’t want no one else
Baby that’s no lie

Sweet lady

If you want trouble
Baby I’m your man
Lord I’m so worn down
I can barely understand

Just wanna love you
Baby all the time
Woman can’t you understand
Everything in good time

Sweet Lady

I’m coming for you
Baby understand
And I try so hard
Baby cause I’m your man

In times of trouble
It comes to me
Woman can’t you understand
Baby that’s not me

Sweet Lady
Track Name: Money
Well, you’ve taken all the money
And I thought you were my friend
All around your world is crumbling down again

Well, I gave you all you wanted
But there never was an end
Deep inside you bury hopes of a broken man

Again and again you write me off
Best you know when the light has dulled
In spite of all the damage you’ve done

Sorry that it all isn’t just how you wanted
But it’s all lost in your time
Sorry that it all isn’t just how you wanted
And it comes with a price
Baby all my money is on you

Well you’re fooling all the people
And it’s burning down your soul
All your petty thoughts are gone
And you’ve lost control
Track Name: Smoke Signal
Sorry as I’ve gone astray
I use my wares in certain ways
Leave it all behind these walls
Tell me, can I have a little more?

Well I know, I know, I know it’s strange
Lost my faith in a red eyed gaze

Do you understand?
Lend a helping hand
And I suffer, suffer for it every day

Isn’t it enough that I bleed?
Lately things just never start to seem
Running from the holes in my head
Every time I’m down this road again

Even through the morning rain
Tied myself with tongues of shame

If you understand
Lend a helping hand
And I suffer, suffer for it every day

Somebody said you’re so fucking lazy
I said I stick out my neck when I can
Hypnotized telling lies and I’ll teach you that the…
Clothes never make the man

I know you like it when you’re alone girl
You better get it all while you can
Separate, and I’m late, and I’ll meet you on the…
Meet you on the other end 
Track Name: Wolves At My Door
Can I bend your mind?
Taking what was yours, now is mine
Save my soul you say, I see the world
Baby just the other way

Writing’s on the ceiling, paid in lies
I’m not your dog in this war
Even though the wolves are at my door

Can’t climb the walls no more
Just can’t find anything that I’m looking for
Paced the halls today, see your face in everything
Just go away

You’re so hard to please
Even though I can still feel your disease
Can’t hear my thoughts today
Sink your teeth into everything that I say
Track Name: Me And You
Well you’ve always been my inspiration
And I seldom choose to write down these perfect truths
All of this time you change pettiness into wine
And I can’t believe you’d rather fall down then choose

Now I purposely flaunt my frustrations
And I can’t deny your evil runs through and through
She said “honey, I’m fine” from behind a veiled disguise
And I can’t believe the lies that got into you

Girl I just wanna breathe my love into you

Oh, I don’t know what I’m gonna do
As I sing my tune, I said I don’t know where…
I don’t know where I’ve been to.
But there’s always something wrong with me and you
Track Name: Corner
Lock me in the corner
Pull the blinds, the moon won’t last
Drag me to the bottom of your secrets
Let the walls come down on me

And it’s been too long
And I don’t have much
But the war rolls on
And it’s all I ever think about

Drown me in the water
Pull the blinds, the rain won’t last
Drag me to the bottom of your reasons
Let the walls come down on me

And the war rolls inside of my head
And it’s cause baby you’re not there
It’s all right, I don’t mind it
Tell me little sister
Tell me do you think you can ride it?
Track Name: Drawing Flies
Well the writings on the wall I’ve been told my friend
Lending time to conquests that we once had
And all the rite, all the rotten gazes that reach out upon the lands I’ve wandered
Left to climb the mountain so high

When the mind grows older
We can decide the end of survive
It’s all intertwined
We’ve known this all these years
And as the tribe rolls onward,
Burning the pyres and swallowing embers
Holding for miles, the source of all their fears

Fall in line, you’ve done your time
The gold is mine my brother
You seem so troubled
Hey, you better make time

All is lost, set the course
You’re cold as frost my brother
You seem so troubled
Hey, you better make time

There are ancient pathways through mountains
They say you need only guides
I often ask myself just why
And all is lost
And all the talk of how they bleed through the valleys
Bookend in torture
As they climb the mountain so high

Reach down today
