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: Floor
two hands
on the back wall
were going through your mind
from the first floor
through the open doors
tell us what you find

dirty pictures
holy water
and a hole in my eye

some of you are with me
some of you are gone
and others
hiding
waiting to find a way out
out
of
here

i can feel him fall me
i can feel him fall on me
i am trembling
what is happening to me

white wash this memory

weve been trying to get back but were so far in
hush
now
all of these thoughts are obscene

this is such a mess
i know that theres something more
something tells me this is over
now open these doors

we were so far in
hanging from the walls
sliding down down down
to the floor
and i can see those.....

your free
Track Name: The Line
throw your best friend into the fire
then spit them into the grave
round and round
they're twisting that screw
feel it turning inside

you break our backs in the fight
press your fingers into our eyes
round and round your twisting that screw
feel it turning inside

come inside
were alright
we just built a lovely fire
close your eyes
now put your hand in
mine

throw your best friend into the fire
then spit them into the grave
round and round their twisting that screw
feel it turning inside

they'll throw you into that fire
they'll spit you into that grave
don't shake that hand its a lie
its a lie

come inside
were alright
we just built a lovely fire
close your eyes
now put your hand in mine

stay inside
your alright
let us keep you one more night
shut your mouth
just put your hand in mine

mine mine
your worth pennies now mark
on the line
mine mine all mine

pull your best friend out of the fire
and lift them out of the grave
no more round and round
no more twisting your screwed
now its turning in you

now its turning in
Track Name: Forgive Me, Karma
it wont be easy when i leave
but its better than lingering here with you
theres a hand on my back that guides me on
its bigger
and brighter
and its faster than me

im in it
i did this
the moment
im in it
and im not gonna break it off of me
you walk with fire
i heard you were a liar
but i dont wanna break it off of me

no younger
im getting
i keep on forgetting
still i dont wanna break it off of me
i walk with fire
ill show you whos a liar
but im not gonna break it off of me

whats it gonna matter if you have your way with the world
i dont wanna be there when the fire dies
whats it gonna matter if you have your way with the world
god,im gonna miss him

things will be better when im free
ive never been good enough for you
theres a hand on my back that guides me on
its bigger
and brighter
and its faster
than me

i dont wanna leave you all alone
but i cant keep fighting with these two worlds
and the hand on my back just pushed me down
if i stay
if i go
why am i still here

its bigger
brighter
and its faster
than me.....
Track Name: Glow
oh i really need to get back
would you let me in
ive been running with a dead man
and i let him win
gotta show em love
theyre all you have
better let them help you
theyre all you have

breaking me down
i know they can feel it
breaking me down
they know all our secrets
breaking me down i know that
they know who we are

breaking me down i know they can feel it
breaking me down
they know all our secrets
breaking me down
i know that they know what we are
what we are

a happy feeling when i get back
cuz' they let me in
but now im walking like a dead man

gotta let them love you
theyre all you have
gotta let them help you
theyre all you have

tread lightly
those hands arent clean

youve got alot of nerve to spit in your hand for me

Track Name: Ear On The Fool

down to the bottom
inside of my mind and into my heart

theres a lie that lives and breathes
oh i really need to get this out
theres a lie that lives in me
oh i really wanna tell you now
deep inside it lives it sleeps
oh i really need to get this out

all around

over my head

voice in my ear
which one is right
