about

93 Octane is back with a vengeance on their second release, "Contagious". This album finds the band further defining its original sound and solidifying its relationship with its fan base. From start to finish, the music rocks hard with songs like "Lost My Way" and the title track. There's also an excellent diversity with more introspective tunes like "Hero" and "Seasons". The writing team of Nelson & Van Taylor take you on an original musical journey that is too often lost by bands striving to emulate what's already been done before. 93 Octane is the new Seattle sound: refreshingly original, artistically expressive, and always powerful.

Check them out on the web at www.93octaneband.com and be sure to "Like" them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/93octaneband.

Track Name: Lost My Way
Always thinking
Will I have the time
Never knowing
How I got behind

Turning circles
Head beneath the sand
I'm forsaken
To follow their commands

Now I've lost my way -----
Lost my way, Lost my way, Lost my way

Bending shapeless
Getting turned around
Hardly breathing
Am I going down
All this time shows
Just what I don't know
Shining different
Lights onto my soul

And now I've lost my way -----
Lost my way, Lost my way, Lost my way

(bridge)
Should I find a place to hide?
Should I live another lie?
Track Name: Dream Stealer
She had those eyes that stole you at a glance
Trapped you in a moment
Get you high then crashed you down

Eagerly
She took a ride on me
Happiness I thought I bought
It should have never been

She took my hand
Blindness drifted into me
It only goes to show
A perfect girl is just a dream

Stole from me
A piece of my heart that never bleeds

Dream Stealer - I’m the one who knew you from the start
Dream Stealer - I left you on my doorstep torn apart

I know it well
Read you in a magazine
Your perfect spell it took a fall
What is will never be

Eagerly
You took that ride on me
Happiness I thought I bought
It should have never been
I know it seems
You know my many things
Well I put you out of memory
Your misery your stains

Stole from me
A piece of my heart that never bleeds

Dream Stealer - I’m the one who knew you from the start
Dream Stealer - I left you on my doorstep torn apart
Track Name: Chains
Fragments of the climb
Locked in the youth of your life
Your dreams they hide but tell your truth
All things shattered and broken with time

All your life
You’ve spend underground digging away
Now you wake and hear the sound
And breathe the light of new days

Chains on your life
Hold your back to the ground
Cut the chains off your life
And get back to the sound
Of your beautiful song
Throw the chains off your life
Chains of time
Eclipse of your sun

Cast into this broken world
Told there’s truth in a book
But in the end you’ll find your life
Is stolen by invisible crook

All your life
You’ve spent wandering hiding away
But know you sow and hear the sound
And breathe the light of new days

All your life
You lived in the past
Day gone by
Of the days you wish to have
You gotta fight
So give it all that you’ve got
Days will be hard
Just sing your beautiful song.......
Track Name: Contagious
I see where you’ve been sleeping
You cannot hide
You lay but you’re still restless
In your bed of lies

Can you feel me I’m contagious
Are my words infecting you?
Are you’re watching all my actions?
Are they speaking loud and true?

I see you trying to reach me
What’s on your mind?
The bitter taste of promise
Is left behind

Can you feel me I’m contagious
Are my words infecting you?
Are you’re watching all my actions?
Are they speaking loud and true?

Feel my stinger sinking deep - in the words I speak
Rip my dagger from your vein - deadly is my grip
Taste the poison from my lips - sickness in my breath
Sink into my silent sleep, bathed in self regret

The story never changes
You play your game
I won’t be left there standing
It’s all the same
Track Name: She Cries
I should have noticed when the scratches turned to cuts
Such a deep violation
Your sickness every day, dismissed as the same old thing
Your blood it fuels all the hatred

Hold the tie, wrap your lies
With the bandage of your toxic mind oh
You don’t feel anymore……

She cries
Hiding in the shadows
She’s lost
Her days are gone forever

The clock still ticking time, while you still lose your mind
Close to the edge and you’re falling
Barely holding on, you scour at the waking dawn
Your heart is constantly calling

Hold the tie, wrap your lies
With the bandage of your toxic mind, oh
You don’t feel anymore……

She cries
Hiding in the shadows
She’s lost
Her days are gone forever

Through the empty door
No one hears her call
Solitary fall
Track Name: Hero
There’s a little boy, who dreams of going to war
He’s got soldier toys - plays on his bedroom floor

Why – Do we let this happen?
He’s only just a kid
They point - Hey we want you man
He dies at only age eighteen

Daddy’s hero
Picture paints of a thousand wars
Mama opens up the door
To Soldier men of war
Sissy turns and runs away
Cuts into her deep dark wounds
Why do we let this go?
For political wars

There’s a little lie - Hides behind the guise
Taking soldier lives - All for political stride

Why – Do we let this happen?
He’s only just a kid
They point - Hey we want you man
He dies at only age eighteen

Daddy’s hero
Picture paints of a thousand wars
Mama falls down on the floor
Her baby’s dead and gone
Sissy drinks her misery
Takes a pill so she can leave
Why do we let this go
For political wars

Daddy’s hero
Picture paints of a bloody scene
Mama opens up her drawer
To tarnished metals from the war
Sissy cleans his messy room
Throws away his soldier toys
Why do we let this go?
For political wars
Track Name: Come On
Join my revolution
Stick it to these games
I will lead, you follow
Then you’ll know my name

I’m not like the others
With this world’s disease
Take my hand and follow
You’ll get what you need

Follow me – open up your eyes, you will see
I am the way – tomorrow is your starting day
You know – do you feel it in your bones?
You need - to leave it all behind and follow me
Come On

Take a look around me
To my sea of green
Whisper you my secret
As I pull you in

Follow me – open up your eyes, you will see
I am the way – tomorrow is your starting day
You know – do you feel it in your bones?
You need - to leave it all behind and follow me
Come On

Come on and follow me
Never be the same
Track Name: Burning Fire
When my day comes
When my light must fade
Streams and tides still flow
And my dust will blow away

One day – one way, take back what’s stole away
One life, one fight, climb up that mountain yea

In the summer breeze
Find me in the sand
Breathe life to me
Cast me in the wind

Shooting Star
Burning fire

When the dark night fades
And there’s only days
Watch my soul soar by
And my dust will blow away

My life, my fight - I’ll buy back what I have sold
One day, one way - With diamonds from dust in soil

In the summer breeze
Find me in the sand
Breathe life to me
Cast me in the wind

Shooting Star
Burning fire

Watch my light
Burn into your life
Watch my light
Breathe into your life
Track Name: Walk Away
I’m weary weak and afraid
The price of life I’ve paid
The bare walls hide my pictures
From times of Yesterday

With aching eyes dry of dull dreams
Where should this life lead me
My innocence is shattered
It came back but I can’t pay

If I had it my way
I’d know what to say
If I had it my way
I’d turn my back and walk away

It’s been so long since this blindness
I know you stand by me
The times when I was alone
You helped me find my way

It’s getting harder to sleep
The days are long and I’m weak
It’s complicated but I stay
My blindness slips away

If I had it my way
I’d know what to say
If I had it my way
I’d turn my back and walk away

I know there’s part of me
This separated me
Never lets me be – Alone
Track Name: Seasons
I woke to fog this morning
And I’m leaving on the very next train
I left you with these feelings
And just as you were healing - I said goodbye

Here I sit alone
Waiting on your call
And as I write these words
The memories……. are hard.

If I could only feel you
If I could only free you
If I could only touch your face
I’ll find a way to see you
Is there no way to be with you
This is the season of my endless pain

I know you just don’t need me
If you would only see me - One more time
This endless pain won’t leave me
But one last time could heal my - Restless mind

As I left you there
Waiting and alone
As you forget my name
The Memories……are lost

If I could only feel you
If I could only free you
If I could only touch your face
I’ll find a way to see you
Is there no way to be with you
This is the season of my endless pain

This is what is left of me
Broken shattered left to grieve
Will this heartbreak ever leave
Only you can set me free

Now I know that all
The things I did were wrong
Along this empty road
The Memories……….are gone
Track Name: Hero (acoustic)
There’s a little boy, who dreams of going to war
He’s got soldier toys - plays on his bedroom floor

Why – Do we let this happen?
He’s only just a kid
They point - Hey we want you man
He dies at only age eighteen

Daddy’s hero
Picture paints of a thousand wars
Mama opens up the door
To Soldier men of war
Sissy turns and runs away
Cuts into her deep dark wounds
Why do we let this go?
For political wars

There’s a little lie - Hides behind the guise
Taking soldier lives - All for political stride

Why – Do we let this happen?
He’s only just a kid
They point - Hey we want you man
He dies at only age eighteen

Daddy’s hero
Picture paints of a thousand wars
Mama falls down on the floor
Her baby’s dead and gone
Sissy drinks her misery
Takes a pill so she can leave
Why do we let this go
For political wars

Daddy’s hero

To tarnished metals from the war
Sissy cleans his messy room
Throws away his soldier toys
Why do we let this go?
For political wars
