about

Atlanta's ROYAL THUNDER reemerge with their stunning sophomore LP 'Crooked Doors'. Propelled by the powerfully emotional voice of Mlny Parsonz, Royal Thunder seamlessly blends the great parts of heavy classic rock, 90s grunge and the forward thinking guitar heroics of contemporary metal bands like Mastodon and Baroness to create a sound unmistakably their own. Rarely has a band so naturally tied together 3 generations of hard rock into one triumphantly magnificent album.

Track Name: Time Machine
im looking for a time machine

but i cannot go back

and change one single thing

its staying all in tact

and im looking for a way to feel

cuz' i dont feel a thing

and it haunts me in this life

when you want me to pretend

oh im looking for a place to be

and a place to lay my head

im drowning in this life

come back for me

it squeels its in the air tonight

that devil knows my name

it shreaks across the sky tonight

that devil knows my name

choosing moderation

i should give it up

but im not giving it up your way

it screams it kicks

i feel the weight

it pulls me down

but im not giving it up that way

still looking for a way to feel

too tired to pretend

it haunts me in this life

when you want me to confess

will i ever find a peace within

will these colors fade away

im wrapped up in these arms

im burning in your bed

dont you ever come and look for me

dont you ever say my name

im standing ten men tall

you will not break me

its starting to fade

theres no need to push away

theres a thorn in your eye

its starting to fade

theres no need to push away

theres a thorn in my side

theres no need to push away

you want this

i finally found a way to feel

no more will i pretend

you wont haunt me in my life

im going to confess

i finally found a peace within

as the colors fades away

i break free form your arms

and burn you in this bed

im no stranger to your black streak

i see through

your my enemy

i oughta know

i wanna know you better than that

im looking for a time machine

but i can not go back

and change one single thing

its staying all in tact

dont you ever come and look for me

dont you ever say my name

you'll be waiting all your life

dont come back for me

relax

its gonna fade

relax

its gone away
Track Name: Forget You
i can hear you calling

and im not gonna run

my energies pushing and pulling

im falling for this hard

i shake it off and forget you

see you out and feel ok

but you keep drawing me back here

and i cant keep you away

your using me up

i feel wasted

and you really

oh you really got me now

but im sorting it out

yeah im sorting it out

oh your using me now i can see it

and you really

oh you really got me now

maybe i need to slow down and wait

around

its around

ive seen it around

i am waiting on the real thing

and i need it right now

doesnt have to be a big deal

but i need it

oh i need it right now

its around

i can feel it around

i really oughta try

im a fool

to speed up ahead

no i dont wanna be here

i shut down cuz everythings dead

and now my instinct is telling me

that i should just run

so i run really far

i see

bright lights

forming a wall

and now a fire

it breathes

as it burns

down

all of my energies awake

you better run for your life
Track Name: Wake Up
i gather all my demons in a line tonight

guide them through the darkness into morning light

they dont seem to struggle theres no need to fight

i am not afraid

should i be afraid

i look up at the stars my wandering soul subsides

desert spirits pass with and electric light

theres no need to struggle theres no need to fight

im cutting off my head

i toss it to the side

im hoping this will save me rest my restless mind

i dont wanna struggle i dont need this fight

i am not afraid

no i wont be afraid

im rising from the sand i see the pale blue light

you are now a memory i dont feel your life

anymore

(backing vocals: bury me soak up my energies break me from this bond)

wake up

i need to wake up

im just wasting my time

wake up i need to wake up

im just wasting my life

...i am never gonna look back

im never gonna look back

i'll just look the other way

i'll just look the other....
Track Name: The Line
throw your best friend into the fire
