Poetic Descent is an Alternative Metal band from Dayton, Ohio featuring former members of Mayfly (Voluminous Records). Jared Lacey (vocals, guitar, bass) and Adam Thompson (drums) entered the Darkroom Recording Studio (Piqua, OH) to record six songs with Justin Moore shortly after Mayfly announced its end in March of 2017.

Their music has been compared to bands like Dead Poetic, Project 86, Every Time I Die, Blindside, Beartooth and Norma Jean. All songs were composed by Jared Lacey. Lyrically, his songs touch on topics such as the existence of God, addiction, his mother’s death, domestic abuse, martyrdom and homosexuality. These songs will be released as singles throughout the course of 2018.

Check out the just released vizualizer video for their new single, ‘Martyrs’.

Lyrics: Martyrs

(2 Corinthians 4:8-9)

Martyrs, martyrs

Tied up and bound
On a stake burning flames licking their fragile flesh
As it melts away from the frame
It melts away
From the frame

Martyrs dying for their God
The flesh may fail, but the soul will never
Ever be destroyed
Be destroyed
Persecuted by not abandoned
Struck down, but not destroyed
The flesh may fail, but the soul will never
Ever be destroyed
Be destroyed

Afflicted
They raise their voices high
Sing the martyr’s song
In death
They are never more alive
Alive

Martyrs dying for their God
The flesh may fail, but the soul will never
Ever be destroyed
Be destroyed
Persecuted by not abandoned
Struck down, but not destroyed
The flesh may fail, but the soul will never
Ever be destroyed
Be destroyed

And I am both martyr and the judge
I am the victim, at the same time, I’m the grudge
I’m condemning and I am sending myself to a stake that I have made
To kill everything inside of me that I hated
And through the ashes and in the flames what I am hoping that you will see
Is that there that what remains is still nameless but it’s still me

The crowds they will cheer and make clear their favorite winner
But I am the unwitting sinner that entered a stadium that is wreaking of death
But it is here that I am at peace so take me
My body is only a rental and tell those powers that be
That soon they will see something higher
My ashes will never summarize my hope in something more
I believe in my God, my Savior and my Lord

Martyrs, martyrs

The flames may destroy the body, but not the soul
For His spirit dwells within them forever
Within them forever
Forever
