Subterranean 03:32
Subterranean Verse One/ Somewhere in the ashes there’s a fire still, That’s trapped like a wasp inside a jar. Licks of indecision bringing back a chill, Closer to me now than it is far. It’s the growing pains of a city growing ill. The warm blood cooling in my veins. Somewhere in the ashes there's a fire still, Hot enough to burn over again. Bridge/ Sitting in the backseat the rear mirror finds me, Lucky that I have my wicked past behind me, Cold hands, make plans, stand up beside me, Who’s that washed up pretty little liar, remind me? Sitting in the backseat the rear mirror finds me, Lucky that I have my wicked past behind me, Cold hands, make plans, stand up beside me, Who’s that washed up pretty little liar, remind me? Chorus/ Propane, cocaine, soothsaying stop. Take the sniper by the hand before he lines up his shot. Pristine submarines protecting me from what? You keep your secrets well hidden when you're telling me you're not. Subterranean, never found. Safer when my bones are underground. Subterranean, never found. Safer when my bones are underground. Verse Two/ Long before the landscape was a smokestack, Long before these buildings lost their voice. You could let your heart be optimistic, Long before you had to make a choice. But these black lungs wheeze like a gramophone, These dust clouds blow in my brain. Winding up these engines of destruction, To start this madness all over again. Bridge/ Sitting in the backseat the rear mirror finds me, Lucky that I have my wicked past behind me, Cold hands, make plans, stand up beside me, Who’s that washed up pretty little liar, remind me? Sitting in the backseat the rear mirror finds me, Lucky that I have my wicked past behind me, Cold hands, make plans, stand up beside me, Who’s that washed up pretty little liar, remind me? Chorus/ Propane, cocaine, soothsaying stop. Take the sniper by the hand before he lines up his shot. Pristine submarines protecting me from what? You keep your secrets well hidden when you're telling me you're not. Subterranean, never found. Safer when my bones are underground. Subterranean, never found. Safer when my bones are underground. Subterranean, never found. Safer when my bones are underground.

Centipede 03:36
Centipede Verse one Television tapping on my knee-jerk response again, Amplifies the panic, getting manic and once again Provocative views are used to poison the mixture with continuous news, my fear’s a permanent fixture. Images of tyrants, cold acts of violence, Broadcasters streaming a symphony of silence. Tonight the confounded sound a death rattle. You’re at war, forever more you’ll be afraid of your shadow. Bridge I hope everything will be ok. Cut the lines to you here today. The fear, it never stops, Look how well your life fits into a box. Chorus Curl that fist, you’ll rock the system, Real minds kill your television. Bang your head, use what you’re given. Move everybody, move everybody, listen! Verse Two Videotaped me for my own protection, facts rearranged to make the wrong connection. Bad news slays me, reinforced daily, Advertisers tell me I’m shit but they’ll save me. Outside your window, this mean world syndrome Plays poverty like it’s some kind of hard luck Bingo. Every single mention manipulates the tension, And the eyes see no split between the truth and invention. Bridge I hope everything will be ok. Cut the lines to you here today. The fear, it never stops, Look how well your life fits into a box. Chorus/ Curl that fist, you’ll rock the system, Real minds kill your television. Bang your head, use what you’re given. Move everybody, move everybody, listen! Middle 8 Shout it out, Shout it loud. Chorus/ Curl that fist, you’ll rock the system, Real minds kill your television. Bang your head, use what you’re given. Move everybody, move everybody, listen! You’ll rock the system. You’ll rock the system.

Cooked Brains Verse One You fix your wishes to a wall. Some dreams are not impossible. She rode out all night to get to where she had to go, And nothing could stop her at all. And even though our lives have changed, Some things still remain the same. She rode out all night. Chorus, (All night) You wrap that blue heart. (All night) And celebrate just who you are. (All night) We dance like two sparks. (All night) You’ll never see what’s come for you. Is it better to be safe than sorry, love? Verse Two The years have kept you from your friends, The repetition never ends. It’s causing your mind to make believe what you knew then. That someday this will all make sense. And while your heart plays out all night, you’re so far from your real life. She rode out all night. Chorus/ (All night) You wrap that blue heart. (All night) And celebrate just who you are. (All night) We dance like two sparks. (All night) You’ll never see what’s come for you. Is it better to be safe than sorry, love? Verse Three Remember how you spent those days, Now we’ve both gone our separate ways, Out into the night. We’ve been through love and been through hell, Those secrets we won’t ever tell. Memories always start to fade, But inside we never change. We rode out all night. Chorus/ (All night) You wrap that blue heart. (All night) And celebrate just who you are. (All night) We dance like two sparks. (All night) You’ll never see what’s come for you. We dance like two sparks. You’ll never see what’s come for you.

Broken Teeth 03:21
Broken Teeth Verse/ Hide your scars and make them memories, Kill your friends and join your enemies, My form is war-torn, battled for centuries, Four types of deadly shit coming ahead of me. Cut the air supply and your dreams capsize With chemicals and flashlights. Radio waves scream a wild dial tone, Rip the flesh from these scarecrow bones. Chorus/ When the lights go down All I see is what’s forever now. (You got fix this) When the shit comes ‘round All I feel is I was never found. You got to pick your fights, You got to pick your side. Verse Two/ Pretend? Everything ends. Back to the beginning, the pain is just part of me. Fate’s a blunt razor, press on your artery. But can’t you feel those demons, Crawling through your skin? Let them win and take you in. Bridge/ I got heart with no beat, Nails that scratch deep, Ghosts that won’t sleep, Tears that taste sweet. I got shakes that won’t leave, Black like the seas, Still I can’t see the wood for the trees. I got guts that won't keep, Hurt that won’t grieve, Crimes that won’t ease, Friends that won’t leave. I got eyes that don't see, Cuts that don't bleed, Lungs that can't breathe, And a mouthful of broken teeth. Chorus/ When the lights go down, All I see is what’s forever now. (You got fix this) When the shit comes ‘round, All I feel is I was never found. You got to pick your fights. Post Chorus/ That open heart in my chest, Feels like a hole in my head. I had a love and a friend, I had a chance to pretend. That open heart in my chest, Feels like a hole in my head. And I need to find a way through. Breakdown It‘s like everything we’re sick of, Came here to trick us. Bad times and rip-off, Hold back the jitters. This room’s about to kick off. A mouth full of broken teeth. Chorus/ When the lights go down, All I see is what’s forever now. (You got fix this) When the shit comes ‘round, All I feel is I was never found. You got to pick your fights. Post Chorus/ That open heart in my chest, Feels like a hole in my head. I had a love and a friend, I had a chance to pretend. That open heart in my chest, Feels like a hole in my head. I had a love and a friend, I had a chance to pretend. A mouth full of broken teeth. I had a chance to pretend. I had a chance to pretend.

Saccade 03:34
Saccade Verse One I’m calm, I see what happened now You know, sometimes I get strung out. I lost my head, I said some things I wish I’d kept. But when I drink, you know I don't think. One, two, three Why the eff are you calling me? Chorus I keep calling you. I’m lost without something to hold, we had it good. I can’t pretend that I can end this thing we had. Know what I need, don’t want a piece, want all of you. I keep calling you. Verse Two Don’t let us overcomplicate. I need to say it to your face. I’ll cross the floor right to your door to hear you breathe. I know you need some space to think. One, two, three, Why the eff are you calling me? Chorus I keep calling you. I’m lost without something to hold, we had it good. I can’t pretend that I can end this thing we had. Know what I need, don’t want a piece, want all of you. I keep calling you. I keep calling you. I’m lost without something to hold, we had it good. I can’t pretend that I can end this thing we had. Know what I need, don’t want a piece, want all of you. I keep calling you. I keep calling you. I keep calling you. I’m lost without something to hold, we had it good. I can’t pretend that I can end this thing we had. Know what I need, don’t want a piece, want all of you. I keep calling you.

Release the Hounds Verse One You got a big mouth, for every station. Say what you want, poison the conversation. It makes you popular (you popular, you popular), I hate you’re popular (you’re popular, you’re popular). Bridge I’m not alone. Chorus Bad times rocking colossal problems in my mind, Bad times rocking colossal problems. Bad times rocking colossal problems in my mind, Bad times rocking colossal problems. Bad times. Verse Two You switch comfort for intimidation, You’re just so good at f***ing the information. Lies make you popular (you popular, you popular), I hate you're popular (you’re popular, you’re popular). Bridge We’re not alone. Chorus Bad times rocking colossal problems in my mind, Bad times rocking colossal problems. Bad times rocking colossal problems in my mind, Bad times rocking colossal problems. Bad times. Break I know what’s coming for you. These hounds will come back and bite you. Come back and bite you. I know what’s coming for you. These hounds will come back and bite you. Come back and bite you. Bridge/ We’re not alone. Bad times.

about

Life is never straight forward. Things like Illness, loss, love, heartache, fear, uncertainty, power and control walk among us, sometimes tripping us up, sometimes pushing us forward & other times stopping us completely, despite time continuing on.

These challenges have affected us as a unit, and separately, causing shifts in our lives and our plans. Things happen, get delayed or just don’t, but you have to keep moving forward and never back.

Together, as Killatrix, we have dialled into these experiences, digested what we see around us and have created our brand-new EP, Future Weapons Part I.

It’s not political but it asks questions, it makes you think and makes you feel. Each track tunes into a different emotion, from the defiant views of ‘Centipede’, the fearless fight of ‘Broken Teeth’ to the conflicting love of ‘Saccade’. It’s a trip & it’s our trip.

Listen and listen again.
