about

Akord Aberdeen, UK

Imagine Tool and Karnivool locked together in the sweet embrace of a musical orgy; a passion filled session with some light sweet jazz to set the mood. Incubus loiter in the room to tag in every so often and Biffy Clyro are there to serve the refreshments.

That's Akord.

Track Name: Levels
Well now that we have all reached the day
This is where you hold
and take nothing over me
you'll soon see

Cause we're cheating to lose
Deciding to choose
A life where...
We read it all wrong
And preached for too long…
Reciting
In an unfamiliar tongue…

We could say we're at fault,
Pretending we've got these choices
Singing along,
Now we're selling our voices…
How could this go so wrong?

Down!
I can feel you hit the ground
Reach the depth of no other.
Set alight, to those who might,
Sympathise

For I have seen you tumble down
Reach the depth of no other.
You'll push away from those who brave
A compromise

Well you should be deposed
Right from your throne
And your rules, they should be overgrown
Buried all revealed
Exposed to all those that you have known
Known forever

You should try and cure it
Crawl on through to hear that
Final "no"
See what you can do about it

Down!
I can feel you hit the ground
Reach the depth of no other.
Set alight, to those who might,
Sympathise

For I have seen you tumble down
Reach the depth of no other.
You'll push away from those who brave
A compromise
Track Name: Compose Yourself
There's so many questions why,
It fills in our heads,
the negative space that shines bright

It's that you're failing to provide,
A state of mind, the changes
that build and grow inside me.
Separately, on my own
I'll find what it takes to get home!

Well this is your life,
but we are you,
secure so you don’t
Separate from what is yours
Don’t stray,
a generation thrown away.

Don’t you discard their sight
No spineless rewrite
compose yourself for this
Change that you know
you continue to grow
compose yourself

You discard their sight
No spineless rewrite
Compose yourself
For this change that you know
You refuse to let go
This you should know!

This is your life,
but we are you,
secure so you don’t
separate from what is yours
Don’t stray,
a generation thrown away
Track Name: Outlines
With the shelter to provide
And no secrets to hide
I've paid this impossible
Debt that you owed

But I should have known
That you're tethered to your bone
And I've thrown so much
That I would have nothing to collect

You should find the fix to mend
For you to try
A new outline
In time
It's for you to try
You gotta help me!

Design an inconstant mind
This new thought that we're building ahead
Well soon you'll find that
There is nothing left to change
We have erased this last part
We continue to evolve
But are we going the right way?
You say, oh that's just the price you'll have to pay!

Well find the fix to mend
For you to try
A new outline
In time
It's for you to try

This unrested spiral has nowhere to fall
Sheltered but paid in full
To amend this at all

There's nowhere to fall with this unrested mind
My thoughts are confined
Can't feel anymore
To stand in line
Confide!
Within this outline.

Something says that
You should find the fix to mend
Its for you to try

Find the fix to mend
for you to try
A new outline
In time
It's for you to try
You gotta help me!
Track Name: Mind Over Matter
Strive to
See past the skies with untried eyes,
You take in the grace we undermine.
Open up to this world that's in front of you.

So don't just follow suit,
Cause it's your undoing now.
Take what you have,
That makes your being.

(So put your mind over it)

Now that you've dragged me in (Dragged me in!),
You forgot to tell me how to swim.
I'll pull you down,
Tell you how to drown your,
Isolated, introverted, closed mind
Locked so you won't know,
That I'll turn you around,
Run this blessed vessel aground.

Who am I,
To decide,
A feeling that can't be so feared so ill defined?
A better way, so to say,
Tell them to keep it from forming in this mind.

So hide!
So hide!

It's so weak of you to compare,
Spinning a lie, pretending you're up there.
People alike propelling us nowhere,
Delving through, an ending truth
About the world that's in front of you.

Now that you've seen past the skies
You'll see what's in front of you
Right in front of you
Why couldn't we just open our eyes?

(Now you put your mind over it)

Now that you've dragged me in (Dragged me in!),
You forgot to tell me how to swim.
I'll pull you down,
Tell you how to drown your,
Isolated, introverted, closed and locked
So you won't know,
That i'll turn you around.
Track Name: Wall
We came from way out back, so far away
We tried to track this distant prey
So heed our warning it's not ok
to be fickle, got to be careful
Not to stay faithful in what they say.

It's your own way.

You gotta
Take the power from it and
Destinate your chosen path
From your broken past
Stealing what you had for another
Your fate is in your closing hands
Fading faster than you had planned

Just think of how feeling low
Will take its toll
Pushing past this giant wall
May cure it all
But you'll be needing to hold on through
As it's passing you
It's the guidance taking control
Making thoughts anew
So break faith
Make haste
Hold on through

Take the power from it and
Destinate your chosen path
From your broken past
Stealing what you had for another
Your fate is in your closing hands
Fading faster than you had planned

Make ready, amend
Choose help without a fret
Cause it's known that to
Reach this all time high

You lose something,
A separate kind of drive
The kind of focus that is needed to stay alive

With all this change in coming days
You'll obsess to learn it
It's been an age in making
So break faith and make haste
This ulterior motive is what it'll take to
Go on your way!

You gotta destinate
On your chosen path
From your broken past
Stealing all you had.

Destinate your chosen path
From your broken past
Stealing what you had for another
Your fate is in your closing hands
Fading faster than you had planned!
Track Name: Transocean
Keep out don't go in there
Free of doubt they sleep unaware
Creep in just to compare
This greed you need, can wait for all I care!

Take one everyday ideal for compelling,
What we wanna let go.
And how should we know,
Who are the ones,
When no one knows who we should fight for?
How can this grow and go further a field,
To be them, to be there
All to aware.
Of this glare!

Look down on them
Mistook yourself thinking that

They knew too much
But too little of sympathy
Faking a creature that
Dares to declare
To develop a system to regulate danger
Out there, so prepare,
Yourself and thy neighbour
Because what should come
Is the absolute answer to make all these people aware.

Focus, cast on distant
Troubles out there
Of this glare

Look down on them
Mistook yourself thinking that

They knew too much
But too little of sympathy
Faking a creature that
Dares to declare
To develop a system to regulate danger
Out there, so prepare,
Yourself and thy neighbour
Because what should come
Is the absolute answer to make all these people aware

See.
If we could see.
How easy it would be.
If we could see.
Track Name: Ethereality
Don't make this place a site for your
Negativity, Negativity
Those who choose to will only pine away

Well this is what we've found:
This single sound
That alights each step
Showing the way
Into the divine
Into the divine!

Won't you see that
Inbetween is where I immerse my mind
I tried to find a new design
In this scene is where I consume the light
I tried to read the signs

This is what we've found:
This single sound
It alights each step
Showing the way
In to the divine
In to the divine

Ethereality
Means I can't emulate,
I can't regulate
I can't seem to go

Cause it is
Inbetween is where I immerse my mind
I tried to find a new design
In this scene is where I lost my mind
I tried to read the signs

I can't concentrate
I can't emulate
I can't regulate
For I am nothing

I can't concentrate
For I will do it my own way…
My own way!

I will do it my own way
My own way
Cause I can't emulate
I can't regulate
I can't seem to go
It's my own way!
Track Name: Upon Reflection
Open up the case in question
By keeping them near you won't realise,

And shutting them down to stay divided,

Is getting caught up to be beguiled,

Leaving to hide you'll realise it's all over nothing,

Now,

So proud, 

With this life, 

That you enshroud.

Less able to love, 

With nothing to speak of,

Maltreated from a level above.

To make more sense of it all 

You'd have to open up to where we fall,
feel nothing at all,

Keep life behind closed doors,
caging alike to store,

Open, allow to explore... even more.
Failing on those you should love,

Sheltering existence we knew,

Is falling socially screwed,

To fail overprotecting you,

You’ll have to lose.

To make more sense of it all 

You'll have to open up to where we fall,
feel nothing at all,

Keep life behind closed doors,
caging alike to store,
 Open, allow to explore... even more
Track Name: A Thought Undersold
Fulfil experience with a name,
From start to finish, 
But without the shame, 
Out of the depths of our control,
Exclusively forming a taste for free parole.
Free hands express how we’ve grown,
Ten-folding reasons to break the hold
Free falling, tethered to your bone

Another thought undersold,
To walk through the unknown, 
An ending to all that we should know.

This life uncontrolled, 
We have got to take hold, 
To show you everything that we know. 

The subtle divine, 
This ethereal mind, 
Will show you everything that we know.
