about

Direct Divide Los Angeles, California

We are Direct Divide, a band with diverse origins. The lights and
chaos of Las Vegas, the somber Seattle winters, the Sao Paulo
beaches, the San Francisco fog, and now the red hills ofLA, we bring our lives and cities
together in our music. Melody reigns supreme
with a combination of powerful female vocals, electric violin,
piano, and progressive guitar with a dose of
heavy rock drums and bass.

Track Name: Persephone
Another night, walking through the city lights
Like we did not long ago
Sea of faces rising and breaking over me
But tonight I feel alone
And I’m trying to come back home
I need you with me

Miles away and couldn’t feel colder
Count the days ‘till this trial is over

CHORUS
I’m calling can you hear me?
But you’re too far to reach
And if this message gets to you
Tell me that you miss me too

Baby can you see me?
I am Persephone
Waiting for the sun to shine
Until spring arrives

Every step I take seems to send me back
The ground crumbles before my eyes
But whenever darkness settles over me
I know you’re on the other side
You’re always on the other side
I know you’re with me

Reaching further I’ve tried my patience
We’ll bend before the distance breaks us

CHORUS x2
Track Name: Writing On The Wall
I hate this self preservation
Pessimistic observation
It’s all a test of faith

Will you live like there’s another place
To run home just abandon all we know
But there’s nowhere left to go

CHORUS
I won’t say I’m sorry
But I screamed out loud
And you still ignored me
So let’s blame each other for the fall


Hands wring in consternation
But it seems a revelation
So can you hear me now?

Calls and signs from a heart without a name
Now that it’s done you need to delegate the blame
Guilty all the same

CHORUS
I won’t say I’m sorry
But I screamed out loud
And you still ignored me
So let’s blame each other for the fall

You saw the writing on the wall
You saw the writing…..the writing on the wall

BRIDGE

CHORUS
Track Name: Down
Every time we walk
You always keep your head down
Even when the sun’s not up
There are so many things around you

But I can’t see your face
Are you able to see mine?
You know, it’s not too late.

CHORUS
No matter what’s going on
There’s so much love around
You don’t want to be alone and down


Every time we talk
You always keep your voice down
No matter what others think
I want to hear what you have to say

But I can’t hear your voice
You say you just want to hear mine
But that’s not what I want

No matter what’s going on
There’s so much love around
You don’t want to be alone and down

I know you’re not feeling strong
But there’s so much love around
You don’t have to be alone and down


You know it’s not to late…. x4

CHORUS
Track Name: Meteors
Hello hello, I’m calling out
Two signals passing in the dark
And I’m breaking up (I’m breaking up)
I’m breaking up (I’m breaking up)

Hello hello, two meteors collide
Passing in the dark
And I’m breaking up (I’m breaking up)
I’m breaking up (I’m breaking up)

What are the chances that our universe collides?
What are the chances that you and I survive?

CHORUS
Out in the silence two signals passing in the night
Out in the night
Out in the silence, our signals create a light
Creates a light

Hello, hello two worlds whirl by
Passing in the dark
And I’m breaking up (I’m breaking up)
I’m breaking up (I’m breaking up)

Hello, hello, my words fly by
Passing in the dark
And I’m breaking up (I’m breaking up)
I’m breaking up (I’m breaking up)

What are the chances that our universe collides?
What are the chances that you and I survive?

CHORUSx2
Track Name: Liar
Crawled your way back up from nothing
Left resting at pathetic
The height to glory’s suffocating
No way in hell you’ll get it

But believe me when I say to you
The climb is worth the pain
Even if you never make it
Never see daylight again

CHORUS
Come and light the fire
Believe in me and I’ll believe in you
Give up and call me a liar
Get up and join me, then we’ll see this through


Curled upon your aching bones
And lost among the languid
Flinch from those who cast the stones
And slowly nurse your anger

Ignore the wounds the bleeding hearts
That beg you to remain
If staying here means giving up
The fight would be all in vain.

CHORUS

BRIDGE

CHORUS
Track Name: Running
Get up, get out, walls are caving in
Bodies fall, the sickness will begin
Keep your children close as it’s crumbling
And touch the face you may not see again

I can’t see straight, I can’t feel my legs but I am running for my life
If I can make it I’ll survive
Adrenaline is pumping through my veins and I am running towards the light
If I can make it I’ll survive

Stay strong, move on as their closing in
Don’t look back, hope is still ahead
No time to pray, there's no time to run
There’s no escape disease is coming on

I can’t see straight, I can’t feel my legs but I am running for my life
If I can make it I’ll survive
Adrenaline is pumping through my veins and I am running towards the light
If I can make it I’ll survive

Hear my heartbeat….hear my heart beating
Hear my heartbeat….hear my heart beating
Hear my heartbeat….hear my heart beating
Hear my heartbeat….hear my heart beating

I can’t see straight, the light is growing dim
My body’s giving up the fight
But the dead come back to life

I can’t stop now, hunger’s setting in and I am hunting you tonight
There is no chance that you’ll survive
Venom is pumping through my veins and I am coming for your life
The taste of blood keeps me alive

Feel your heartbeat…..feel your heart beating
Feel your heartbeat…..feel your heart beating
Feel your heartbeat…..feel your heart beating
Feel your heartbeat stop.
Track Name: Break The Cycle
Reconnaissance
To fight is your intent
You leave your family
To pursue lies and liberty

So tell me how will I ever wake up from this?
It’s closing in, the nightmares are too real
So wake me up, or I’ll disappear
These dreams are built on chance and fear

CHORUS
Break the cycle
Change your future
And break the cycle
Claim your future

Bruised and beaten
Shadows of your past
When the devil raised his head
Did you choose to fight instead?

So tell me now will I ever get out of here?
It’s closing in, the anger’s all too real
So break me out or I’ll disappear
These thoughts are built on rage and fear

CHORUS
Track Name: Won't Be Alone
One foot here and one foot on the road
Your eyes say stay but your hands let go
You know I, I've lost my mind to think that Ill be better on my own
To think that I'll be alone

PRECHORUS
Should I look back as everything is changing?
Do I look back to what I had before?
Pieces of my life are rearranging
I find myself running towards the dark

CHORUS
Oh….. so lets run together
Oh….. past uncertainty
Oh….. we'll still have each other
Miles apart and we still believe


I hate goodbyes but I have to let you go
Behind this smile is a fear that I don't show
I want to find, find the courage to believe
believe that you won't leave me on my own

PRECHORUS

CHORUSx2

As I look back, everything was changing
I never knew what I had before
Pieces of my life were rearranging
But now I know, I never was alone
