about

Strings Of Atlas Grand Rapids, Michigan

Atlas Cage was born during the setting sun of a Friday night, one month after the Chernobyl incident, in an East German town that was still being covered by the ash that drifted in from the skies like dirty snowflakes. It seems only fitting that years later he would adopt a form of the radiation symbol as the marker for the heavy, psychedelic, blues band known as “Strings of Atlas”. ... more

Track Name: Burning Days
Artist: Strings of Atlas
Writer/composer: Atlas Cage
Song: Burning Days
Album: In a better world

I can tell by the way
That you’re burning your days
That your times already come and gone

Hear that sound in your voice
Consequence in your choices
Are you setting for where you got stuck?

Tell me how do you how do you feel?

And I’ll do it all for you
Like they do it all for me
And we’ll take a little time
And see all that we can see

Don’t say it’s all for nothing baby

They’ll never understand you
But they’ll say that they tried
You’re screaming from your heart now
And they stand and wonder why
I want to be like Hendrix carve a mountain with my hand
I got to sail the stars and be a pioneering man

Tell me how do how do you feel?
Tell me how do how do you feel?

And I’ll do it all for you
Like they do it all for me
And we’ll take a little time
And see all that we can see

All I took when I
Left that place behind
Was a plan

And all I need is to
Get a little further
Than I am

Don’t say it’s all for nothing baby
Track Name: In A Better World

Song: In a Better World
Album: In a better world


Now when you’re so far away

When your heart is still free
But your hands are tied
And that blood stops circulating
And they get cold inside
Are you man or machine?
Are you paper of stone
Will you be what they need?
Or will you do what you want

I believe in a better world
I believe that we’ll find a way
I believe in a better world
I believe that we’ll find a way

When you’re so far away from things
And can’t get any sleep
When the air is on fire
And you’re breathing in deep
Some words can shape your life
And man some looks can bring you down
I’m never done
I’m never scared
I’ll never touch the ground
\
I believe in a better world
I believe that we’ll find a way
I believe in a better world
I believe that we’ll find a way

Nothings ever too far away
No one’s ever too far away

I believe in a better world
I believe that we’ll find a way
I believe in a better world
I believe that we’ll find a way

When you’re so far away
Track Name: The Way That You Don't Love
Artist: Strings of Atlas
Writer/composer: Atlas Cage
Song: The way that you don’t love
Album: In a better world

I saw you through the glass
I wanted you so bad
I really thought you were something

I tried to do it right
To take your pain away
Give up my sanity to keep you happy

I even fought the dark
When it came creeping in
You kept my light in your pocket baby

You were the very best
Mistake I ever made
Would not have changed a thing

I guess I kind of like the way that it hurt
I guess I kind of like the taste of the dirt
I guess I kind of liked the way that you love me
I guess I kind of hate the way that you don’t

You got what’s goo d for you
That’s what your friends have said
I know what’s good for me
But wanted you instead
It’s not the way that love me
It’s the way that you don’t
That’s what she used to say
And it would break my heart
Now that you did it
You ask forgiveness
But baby I’m not a priest
Said it was a mistake
You’re lying to my face
Maybe we just need some time

I guess I kind of like the way that it hurt
I guess I kind of like the taste of the dirt
I guess I kind of liked the way that you love me
I guess I kind of hate the way that you don’t

It’s not the way that you love me
It’s the way that you don’t

I guess I kind of like the way that it hurt
I guess I kind of like the taste of the dirt
I guess I kind of liked the way that you love me
I guess I kind of hate the way that you don’t
Track Name: Odyssey
Artist: Strings of Atlas
Writer/composer: Atlas Cage
Song: Odyssey
Album: In a better world

I set sail on the ocean of black
I don’t know when I’ll be coming back
400 horses on my chariot
On the back of a beast ride into a sunset
The den of the crazies
They do what they can to erase me
I shake hands and I deal with the shady
A fight to survive
The killing of time

It feels like it’s trying to break me down
It feels like it’s going to win
It feels like it’s trying to break me down
It feels like it’s going to win

I hear the sound of the sirens
They call out to my head
They suck you in
With the taste of their lips
And they keep you there
With the swing of their hips
And you’ll never be free
And you love what they sing
But you’ll never you’ll never be free
And love how it sounds
And you’ll never get out
And you’ll never you’ll never be free

It feels like it’s trying to break me down
It feels like it’s going to win
It feels like it’s trying to break me down
It feels like it’s going to win

I was searching for my home
After all these years had gone
For me I’d hope you waited
These roads have been so long

It feels like its trying

To break me DOWN!
Track Name: A Light In The Dark
Artist: Strings of Atlas
Writer/composer: Atlas Cage
Song: Light in the Dark
Album: In a better world

You can only see the light
When it’s dark outside so don’t
Let it get you down
The world only looks for the things its lost so you
Wait til you’re found
And somewhere along that dusty road you went and
Found yourself a friend
And you can put em in your pocket baby
So you have someone in the end
Oh, I feel it coming on again
Alright, we’ll be alright in the end

The fires only warm when it’s cold outside so don’t
Worry about the frost
And just because you wander baby it don’t
Mean that you’re lost
And somewhere along that open road you found a
Bit about yourself
And you can take those demons baby
And put em up on a shelf

Oh, I feel it coming on again
Alright, we’ll be alright in the end

Oh, I feel it coming on again
Alright, we’ll be alright in the end

I hear the sun is falling down
The cities sink into the ground
But we’re alright. Were alright

I hear the sun is falling down
The cities sink into the ground
But we’re alright. Were alright

I hear the sun is falling down
The cities sink into the ground
But we’re alright. Were alright

I hear the sun is falling down
The cities sink into the ground
But we’re alright. Were alright

Where have all the good times gone
How come no one’s moving on
Wasn’t it the future yesterday?

Fighting for humanity
When there is nothing left in me
Who the hell has got my head today!

You can only see the light when it’s dark out
