about

Proxima Control New York

In the fall of 2009, guitarists John P. and Matt Z. were sold fake tickets to a Metallica concert. Angered but moved, the duo decided to form their own metal band in New York City. John quickly discovered the talented and like-minded singer Jack Hope and bassist Ben Souder, who had journeyed from Washington DC with just a suitcase and a bass to find success in New York. ... more

Track Name: Cadaver Clutch
CADAVER CLUTCH
Lyrics by Jack Hope (of Proxima Control)

On this blackest eve the web we weave it denotes doom
The false hope you seek and though you weep escapes your fate
Clutch your vicious arms bitches with charms seek your side
With knives and guns; erratic aliens will claim your life

By my hands you'll taste the glass again
Empty gaze; it's what I seek tonight

Scream and beg for your meek life to end for eternity
But I can wait; make you think you've escaped your death sentence
Stripped of your sight no light can escape my right of revenge
Clutch your heart it's all you have so start to say goodbye

By my hands you'll taste the glass again
Empty gaze; it's what I seek tonight
Abadon-The onyx wyvern hunts for you
Trapped in the vilest ways

The lies are yours to tell not mine
At last validity revealed
Imminent subsequent ultimate death!

Stillborn! Your animus lies
Anatomy cries
Now you can't see
Anyone but me
Constricted my fear
The end verges near
Now you can't see
Anyone but me

Love can't find you here so don't you fear my cold embrace
Devoid of closure from the overexposure of the real
Clutch your sides it's a hell of a ride to the end
Forfeit your soul undying

By my hands you'll taste the glass again
Empty gaze; it's what I seek tonight
Abadon-The onyx wyvern hunts for you
Trapped in the vilest ways

The lies are yours to tell not mine
At last validity revealed
Imminent subsequent ultimate death!

Stillborn! Your animus lies
Anatomy cries
Now you can't see
Anyone but me
Constricted my fear
The end verges near
Now you can't see
Anyone but me
Track Name: Blackest Window
BLACKEST WINDOWS
Lyrics by Jack Hope (of Proxima Control)

Come drown in me without your safety
Blood from my fowl; can you hear me howl?
Curb your filthy lies before you fucking die
Stuff your God damn face with the rest of the human race

Glass befalls your eyes; crooked smile beguiles
Your hourglass of shame has fallen far from fame
Irresistibly escaping reality
I'll meet you in my slumber 6 feet fucking under

From my blackest window I believe the world is mine
Lingering on my own cloud I'll burn until I'm as high
As the sun

I can't remember why I'm here
In this dark black god forsaken hell
What have I done to earn this stay
In the fire and brimstone where I fell

So deep you see; no regret left in me
It's been this way from the start ‘cause my soul's been torn apart
The way I've lived since then has been through your contempt
I’ve been taught to live my life along the lines of strife

Delusion fills my brain; created the beast I became
No pressure on your soul cause I'll show you where to go

From my blackest window I believe the world is mine
Judgment has been clouded and yet I search to right my crime
Scream my name a little louder; You'll come with me this time
To the moon

I can't remember why I'm here
In this dark black god forsaken hell
What have I done to earn this stay
In the fire and brimstone where I fell
Give me sleep or give me death
Cause I've already been judged for my deed
Dreamless bliss is all I ask
It's all I've ever known and it's all I'll ever need
Track Name: Den of Freaks
DEN OF FREAKS
Lyrics by Jack Hope (of Proxima Control)

Straight up lay down on your straps
Where I'm from you'll never want to go back
From the smack I lay on your sides
Or the deafening crash of the skin tides

The mammoth can crash this party now
Cause we won't stop when why or how
I'll drag you to the windows and walls
And hear you scream the violent call

Get on the damn bar and crank up the sound!
This is the ballad of the bound!

In this den of freaks I will submit
To the worst of sins I will commit
We will laugh and drink all the blood
Send those bodies back below
(3X) Back to the flood

These scars they're all that we have
And the Green Queen she'll drive you mad
Don't feel sad-Just take another drag
Before I pin you down face first you're found

Shameless shame and fameless fame
Don't you know that no one knows your name
Stand by riding high your place at my side
Tonight we'll decide whether you go or you die

Get on the damn bar and crank up the sound!
This is the ballad of the bound!

In this den of freaks I will submit
To the worst of sins I will commit
We will laugh and drink all the blood
Send those bodies back below
(3X) Back to the flood

(Break)

In this den of freaks I will submit
To the worst of sins I will commit
We will laugh and drink all the blood
Send those bodies back below
(3X) Back to the flood
Track Name: Vapor Trails
VAPOR TRAILS
Lyrics by Jack Hope

Derivation
Plug to guise
Husk hits dirt
Life to grime

Violent start
Conscious black
Reaper staring
Lifeless crack

Abyss has come
For you my son
Cipher this lifeline
Till it's left for none and no one

From above chemicals trip the scene
Inflicting disease from the clouds to the sea
Push to shove your ignorance blissfully
Erupts from your teeth bringing forth hate from me
Cursed canine and jokers by your side
Frothing to lie ‘cause you can't run and hide
Busted wings; surrounded by broken things
Eradicating the remains of her false God-King

Signs of the damned stretch across your face
Rivers of salt in your crevices

Haunted by my vapor trails
I'm trapped inside a cruise that can't sail
We're anchored down regretfully
So I can't save you so let me be

Wandering thoughts fade to obscure lies
As wandering eyes turn to unkempt sides
We creep and claw ignoring our link
‘Cause we'd all rather die before we bleed down the sink

(X4)
Break through hate and deceit!

I will not preach this oath of fools
On top of your burning heap of soil
We all reap what we sow
So before you go
Embrace your curse or shuffle off this mortal coil
Track Name: Dragon's Breath
DRAGON'S BREATH
Lyrics by Jack Hope

Born within the flame
You'll feel the pain
Painless shadow remains
You'll scream my name

Burning up the sky
Soaring ever high Soul-less hide
I am the wyvern alive! I'll never die!

I can't wait to scrape your skin
(You'll never live to see the day)
You can't help but let me in
(You'll never live to see the day)
Free from fear and free from sin
(You'll never live to see the day)
All will hail leviathan
(You'll never live to see the day)

Crimson life escapes your neck
Eradicating Zion's sect
You can't outrun fate or death
All will fall from dragon's breath
(You'll never live to see the day!)

Born within the flame
You'll feel the pain
Painless shadow remains
You'll scream my name
Track Name: Hangman
HANGMAN
Lyrics by Jack Hope

Heed these words of mine down from the sand
Watch the shifty eyes of the people from this land
Better watch your hands
A nobody like me wouldn’t lie to you
Cut and sever my face so far from faith
To see it through

Cause I still need you to know
Just how far down this path you should go
So don't fear me now
But you can hate me then

They tried to leave me with nothing but my name
They don’t know Sun of Bull won't play those games
If they only knew oh just what I have seen
My hearts charged from the pain you caused
So I separate their ways from me

Violence stung me
Hate becomes me
Feel my swift divine
Your sweet neck is mine

(C-c-Now!)
‘Cause you're the bitch that had to cross me
(Now!)
Satisfy your urge or morbid curiosity
(Now!)
Tie another knot in your line
(C-c-now!)
Before I get the urge to commit another crime of pain

Chains on my brain are rusted; I've lost my mind
Somewhere along the way I've lost my sight of hind
Third eye is plastered shut with corrosive smile
What is a man but secrets stolen from the pile of me

Riding home alone
Terrified!
Feel my swift divine
Your sweet neck is mine!

(X2)
You're so fucking predictable; it's criminal how black your soles become
Under the sun, under the sheets, and all the smoke

(C-c-Now!)
Cause you're the bitch that had to cross me
(Now!)
Satisfy your urge of morbid curiosity
(Now!)
Tie another knot in your line
(C-c-now!)
Before I get the urge to commit another crime of pain

Heed these words of mine down from the sand
Watch the shifty eyes of the people from this land

(X2)
You're so fucking predictable; it's criminal how black your soles become
Under the sun, under the sheets, and all the smoke
Track Name: King of the Bees
KING OF THE BEES
Lyrics by Jack Hope (of Proxima Control)

Late at night I walk the streets of apathy
Leaking creation No one rules this world but me
I see the moon melt white on down my green
The howling never stops and never will be seen

Sides of our lives shape the future of our slate
Don't spread yourself too thin or you'll succumb to my fate
Dragged back down to Hell by the bones of the past
Drowning in your hole of blood and tears and glass

Abandoned vessels fill my visual morality
Your lifeless body has never bothered me
Spooks are sparks are all that occupy this place
No one to judge the shattered remains of my face

Oh these days-These days drift in and out
When we were young and spry, and you were old and you were not
Oh these days-drifting in and out like you in the sun
So no more lunacy-catharsis rains down from above

Oh take me back, oh saints of the straps
Take me back, give me the power that I lack
Bring me back and I will never leave your side
For I'm the King of the Bees; With my Queen I'll always ride
