about

Eyes of July Denver, Colorado

In July of 2014, veterans of Mile High metal scene set out to make music with a simple mission statement: make it heavy, make it catchy, and make it groove. The end result, Eyes of July, is an atavistic trip to the glory days of aggressive, abrasive music. Metal is dead. Long live metal. ... more

Track Name: Spectre
It seems you’ve cut the ties again,
That you’ve come clean through another wreck.
You’ve such a talent to predict
When things are about to collapse, but

Can you tell me just why you
Are never the one who
Bears the burden of your own guilt
For your crimes?

It seems this pattern defines you.
You’ll start it over someplace new,
But sooner or later, it all falls through.
It’s all because of the darkness

Behind you. The specter that haunts you
Is a sickness inside you,
The curse that you dare not name.

So can you tell me just why you
Are never the one who
Bears the burden of your own guilt
For your life?

When we refuse to acknowledge the damage
We’ve done, and instead we decide to keep running,
Our cowardice creates our living hell.

The cost of eluding the truth of your dealings
Is never ending guilt and constant fear.

Your life will forever be ruled by the curse til you
Turn and look behind you

At the specter that haunts you,
At the sickness inside you,
The curse that you dare not name.

So can you tell me just why you
Are never the one who
Bears the burden of your own guilt
For your crime?

To silence,
Silence the voice in your mind
Turn and face it.
Track Name: The Fatalist
No one can cheat you just so long as you
Are cheating yourself.
They can’t defeat you when you’re already
Defeated by your own hand.

You built a wall so high,
You dug a hole so deep,
The walls inside your mind
Became reality.

The tired fantasy of what you’ll become
Slips beyond your reach.
The sting of failure could be crippling, so
Never look beneath.

And so you throw your stones
At those who shame you
All from the safety of,
All from the comfort
Of anonymity.

Still enamored with ideas
Still awaiting deliverance
Stuck in the language of what could be
Ever defeated by cowardice

And so you throw your stones
At those who shame you, because they took a chance
While you convince yourself
It was beneath you to ever play the game.
Track Name: Down to Nothing
This is the part I wrote for you:
To be the shadow in my mind.

I find I’m lost without a fight.
I find I can’t make sense of my own life.
Please be the purpose that I crave.
Please be the object of my hate.

I’ve never been comfortable in my own skin.
I’ve always been terrified of silence.

The animosity turns inward and consumes itself.
I find I’m drifting aimlessly.
Without you, I’m down to nothing.

Please take this gift from me.
Please be the thing I need:
Distraction from myself.
I’ll put this curse on someone else.

This drama is incomplete without a war.
I long for oblivion or something worse.

Please take this gift from me.
Please be the thing I need:
Distraction from myself.
I’ll put this curse on someone else.
Track Name: Swear to God
I saw the heavens open
And it was calling my name.
No sooner had I spoken
Than it was closing again.

No one can tell me what I saw.
I swear to God.

I'm betrayed again.
I had it right in my hand.

I saw the sky was swirling
From the windowpane.
All this time, I've been learning
How to deal with my pain.

'Cuz my misdirection has made me strong.
I swear to God.

I'm betrayed again.
I had it right in the palm of my hand.
I'm betrayed again.
I had it right here.

Heaven, she said...
Heaven, she said

I'll leave you nothing,
Nothing but the pain, yeah.
I swear to God I can
Take it all away.
I'll leave you nothing,
Nothing but the pain.

'Cuz I had it right in the palm of my hand,
The fire that burns in the back of my head.
Fake mirrored life, I've always been dead inside
Always been dead

I saw the heavens open
And it was calling my name.
No sooner had I spoken
Than it was closing again.

No one can tell me what I saw.
I swear to God.
Track Name: Obsolete
We belong to the obsolete,
Artifacts of a bygone era,
Atavistic and obstinate,
Hopelessly irrelevant
We are.

We are the antiquated ones.
We are the primitive and dumb.

We belong to the out-of-touch.
You’d do well to silence us.
Stigmatized to the point of extinction,
Vilified and despise us
For what we are.

We are the antiquated ones.
We are the primitive and dumb.
We are the unrepentant blight on your new world.

We refuse the rules of the game,
Refuse the limits you’ve placed
On what we think
And what we choose to say
And how we choose to live.

You don’t speak for the ones like us.
Whenever we want, we can take it back.
You’re only as strong as we let you be
So chastise us for now.

We belong to the fathomless,
Living outside your fragile world.
Unashamed, belligerent,
Forever we offend you
With what we are.
Track Name: Won't Suffer You
You’ve faced adversity, but
Never quite like this.
You’ve had your enemies, but
Never quite like me.

Because I see the man behind the myth
And I’m not like the rest;
I won’t suffer you.

So you’ve hidden your hatred in plain sight,
Just like you always do.
It’s your nature to prey on the simple,
Those who trusted you.

But now you feel the fear creep up in you.
‘Cuz I won’t pay the ransom
To suffer you.
And now I see the man behind the myth
And I’m not like the rest;
I won’t suffer you.

I won’t tolerate your kind.
There's no help for you this time.

I won't tolerate your crime.
We can't overlook your crime
This time.

All of your sycophants have abandoned you to this.
It must be terrifying to know you’re all alone.

So now you feel the fear creep up in you.
‘Cuz we won’t pay the ransom
To suffer you.
And now we see the man behind the myth
And we're not like the rest.
Track Name: Seal is Broken
I am not the mindless, self-indulgent wretch
That I was.
I have looked into the mirror of my soul
More than once.
I’ve contended with the dark.
I know just what lurks within.
I won’t let the monster have its way with me
Ever again.

So it waits, so it sleeps,
Though I’ve buried it so deep.
Still it waits for the day
When I give myself away,

When the flood comes rushing back again,
When the madness steals my mind again.

I am haunted by the memory of he
That I was.
I know nothing good can come
From forgetting what I’ve learned.

So I wait and I pray
That the chains will stay in place,
And I’ll not see the day
When I give myself away,

When the seal is broken once again,
We will never know restraint again.
When the flood comes rushing over me,
I will bid my sanity farewell.

I know just what you would do
If I turn my back on you.
I’ve no doubt that you’d destroy
Every good thing in my life.

And my peace, so hard-won,
Would be gone in just a day.
I know just what’s at stake
If I let you have your way.

When the seal is broken once again,
We will never know restraint again.
When the flood comes rushing over me,
I will bid my sanity farewell.
Track Name: Purify
We will separate the faithful from the lost.
We will purge ourselves of those who’d do us harm.
With this oath, we will become the Chosen Few.
Our conviction makes us perfect
And purifies our will.

Take this oath and never falter
Take this oath and never be afraid.

We require you to swear fidelity.
Pledge your soul and take your place among the ranks.
We have seen too many compromise the faith
So we’re setting this example

Unified in strength,
Unified in faith,
Unified in creed,
Unified in hate.

So take your place.
Join the ranks.

With this oath, we will secure our future place.
We’ll remake the world to better suit our needs.
You are with us or against us; make your choice.
Fall in line among the faithful.

Join the winning team,
Meet your destiny,
Sacrifice your name
Never be deceived.

So take your place.
Join the ranks.
Pledge your soul to us,
The Faithful Remnant.
Fall in line among
Your brothers in purity.
