What's the worst thing I could say? Heaven seems so far from me Against my will Bleed and kill A bitter pill "I LOVE YOU STILL" Kiss it goodbye Eye for an eye Slip through the cracks Knives in our backs Mixed and crossed Missed and kissed mixtapes YOU LOST Time to take back what we're owed Die to stay true to your code Only thieves could be as thick Leave behind the ugly days that made us sick Scrape and crawl Break down the wall The less they give, the harder you fall Shift the blame, drop the coin to call If your love is mine, then I want it all
Your Side 01:40
I was so careful Love couldn't touch me Crush couldn't crush me But we talk about we Separate the blood and tears The loss of years It's all so fucking clear Letters that you never send They always get it in the end There's nothing sweet like your floor (What's the risk if we're in love?) The smell of your room, and locking your door (What's left to prove?) Baby, to you I'd never lie Never forget who was on your fucking side Tearful pact, sacred in salt, On our own, it's all our fault Lost the teenage touch, lost a fucking fight Change the tone in your voice, The one you use in the night There's nothing sweet like your floor (What's the risk if we're in love?) The smell of your room, and locking your door (What's left to prove?) Baby, to you I'd never lie Never forget who was on your fucking side They don't know the vow that we've sworn Give 'em pain, make 'em wish they were never born Heaven's too good for us Silent and violent The jealous kind "Hopelessly devoted to you" I'll kill who you hate, my knives can cut too
Deja vu A youth without crew A twelve bar view Thinking of you Two eyes too fuckin' blue Swing and miss Two true lovers kiss Fights and fits Just case to bash my bones to bits Run your fingers up the side of my head Feel the swell from your lover's lead Run your fingers down the length of my wrist I'd kill to keep the smell of your kiss Use my spine Cross every line Our stars align A heart confined Smash the lock, make it mine A minute to flee, a minute to find Lover's time has come to pass The lonely grain of sand has turned to glass Left shattered now to cut and slash At a throat - a floral note Kiss my face, breathe to me your saving grace One last embrace I'd put a gun to the side of my head Made a vow that if love was dead I'd run a razor down the length of my wrist Bled to feel, it's the one thing that exists Push comes to shove Hand in glove You're who I dream of Safe in heaven above Long live our true love A tender body broken and beat A bleeding heart left out in the street
Fucked and fought, I'm out for good Thinking thoughts that no one should Coins to call fall through gaps in the seats Heart that beats by the cracks in the streets Who's sorry now? Harder to see when the blood's in your brow Nowhere to be found Beating and fleeting breaking out of a vow Dying on a Saturday night One star away from throwing the fight Bought and sold, too good to be gold Fading out in the feeling of feeling so old Who's sorry now? Harder to see when the blood's in your brow Nowhere to be found Beating and fleeting breaking out of a vow Cut with windows smashed with bricks Fighting them off with stones and sticks A blade gone dull for better or worse Picked up a piece of a city's curse
"So happy in the haze of a drunken hour" The saddest song to keep you sour Midnight people, and midnight ears Midnight street, and midnight bars Smeared with tears, Drinking with cynics for friends A night's out not a night out If the night out never ends Prick a finger, left to linger Feeling the years, dulling your fears A lover's love has you bored to bust Sweet smelling sheets, and a long for lust Fleeting heart, arrows shot to burst the sun Sober eyes are the truest ones
Young to Die 01:26
Fumbling touch in the dark Mapping out stars in beauty marks Tracing the lines in my palm Counting beats in the breaks of balm Break the glass to write a note on A rose red blade to press a throat on Too tender for hell, too young to die Don't wanna stay alive when you're twenty-nine Fingertip caught in a link of chain Bleeding out to ease your private pain Seeking things that will hurt you Sweet and soft just to desert you
Words inflected by the clear complected Promised us, betrayed our trust Safer in regret Savoring the day we met Fucked with fate With love and hate Burden of blame Nothing's the same But we were wrong We couldn't fuck-ing be-long Say the word and I'll tear the world in two Do what I have to do to be next to you Give me the choice of now or never ...Who needs forever?
Those words I wrote They sicken me now I wanna bleed something sweeter But I don't know how Smell my heart beneath the gauze I love you because The way we was I can't help but feel offended By the boys that you've befriended Sick to death of humiliation An afterthought, a complication Believe me when I say, you made me, you saved me Don't know what I did to make you hate me It's misty clear you never forgave me Search for things that aren't in me Secret lovers that will never be Dragged your finger on a breath-stained glass Blew a kiss to dearies passed Obsessed and depressed Undressed and repressed The only things that stay the same Our youth, our truth, our love, our flame Send me your smell to my address in hell A drop of your love, a wish to be well Your spit is my spit Kept my wrists slit Then: sad but true Now: keeping me blue Know who you love at every age Forgotten regrets on a saltwater page Hard to hide, harder to care Dry an eye with a handful of hair Lost my love on a slippery slope Your perfume pressed on an envelope
Bloom just to pass, fall too fast Walking on, walking on broken glass Your lover's lead, beloved's brass Kill to be one and only, the first and last Waiting for you and a dream that won't come true Clench and clutch, the softest touch There isn't much that a knife can't cut through Paid for days in borrowed laughter Stayed in dreams of tomorrow or after This is blood in and blood out! Live and die in the shadow of doubt Waiting for you and a dream that won't come true Clench and clutch, the softest touch There isn't much that a knife can't cut through Lived in love, and lived in lies, And lived just long enough Watched the barrel spin and you called my bluff Bullet or blade I'm the one who fucking stayed Life - I can't feel A look is just a look So who's to say what's real? Just seal the deal Shattered and shook Your turn to feel!
"I wish you'd never met me" And turned away "Regret me and forget me" What would YOU fucking say? Cried enough tears to soak the street Bash and bruise the bones too broke to beat Red and black, blue on blue I killed them all, but I did it for you! "Something's missing inside..." "Something's died..." The gang is gone The nights are long Baby, tell me I'm wrong Kiss or kill If the streets can't have me, nobody will
You don't want to see me around Beat me down, keep me on the ground Your scars look just like mine Guilty pair in quiet crime Bought into a fucking lie Love that I leave to pay the price Kiss sealed pact that we would flee We'll die together, you and me Lilting lovers side by side Wilting lover's suicide But it ends tonight Cut deep to even the score Tender wrists, bloody fists Needle and pin We can't fucking win Lives meant to take How much longer do I have to wait? For-get my name Bones and bonds break just the same
Énouement 00:29
Stay True 02:07
A darkened room Hung from the moon Finger twirled hair A criminal's prayer A solemn place Poisoned against me Felt too broken to go They'll tell you no I told you so I told you so... Before you go... Let me kiss your lips And you kiss mine Secrets to keep Pushing me away in your sleep Heard the words too late Keep fucking with fate Such change to trust But it's our fear that makes knives rust In my own strange way... In my own sick way... I'll always stay... I'll always stray true to you

Us vs them. Love or hate. This world operates in shades of grey, unless you're listening to Detroit hardcore's bold straight-edge band, TRUE LOVE. As far as the lyrical world created by singer Dominic Vargaz is concerned, you're either with them, or against them. While TRUE LOVE initially started with an attempt to resurrect a forgotten sound, with the dual buzzsaw attack from guitarists Alec Faber and Brad Walker, and rhythms driven by bassist Joe Palleschi and drummer Derrick Daniel, the sound becomes entirely their own. Whether they're playing blistering sets on their home turf of Detroit, or playing shows across the country with peers and the bands that defined their sound -- their vision is uncompromising.

With a demo and an extended EP on Baltimore's REACT! Records under their belts, they now present their debut LP on Bridge Nine Records, entitled 'Heaven's Too Good for Us'. Recorded in the summer of 2015 with Andy Nelson at Chicago's own Bricktop Studios, it's thirteen songs of razor-sharp hardcore, clocking in at breathless 17 minutes. They race and pummel through anthems of taking back what's owed, straight-edge fury, broken vows, and the real truths of love lost and sometimes found. Tracks like "Your Side" and "Where It Ends" ache and twist with promises of forever, backed by crushing walls of guitars and "nobody stands still" breaks, while tracks "Kill for That" and "Stay True" showcase TRUE LOVE's ability to slow from frenetic, breakneck speeds to a mid-paced groove that leads to a controlled chaos. There's something for everyone here -- love them or leave them, they aren't going anywhere.
