about

'Choking On A Dream' is BLAKC's first album. We put some of the first songs we'd ever made on this. This album doesn't have a rant or any particular message it tries to drive. The songs are all about emotions like anger, hurt and love. This is our 18 year old selves getting to know each other and creating a 'sound' which has defined how people relate to our music

about

BLAKC Mumbai, India

BLAKC has always been about two things, the music and the people. We believe that our music is an extension of our personalities and the only way to connect to so many people who might feel the things that we do and how we do. The music transcends any differences we have as people and is the reason that we do what we do. ... more

Track Name: Rift
1) What do I see down by the road
My own brother swings and misses,

While I wait,

And as I just wait while I wallow
Left you mistakes…..

*) That I, can’t fight the hands of time,
Must walk away, ‘fore I lie.
Lay me to rest.

2) Dancing shadows, as I‘m afraid of your changing face.
Unscarred amidst the pain you breed
Unmasked and just left as I wallow,
Unmarked and just left….

*) As I, can’t fight the hands of time,
Must walk away ‘fore I lie.
Lay me to rest…….


//) Wait, while you watch

As I talk all my big words

And you mistake me for this broken little heart, this rift

This rift, this rift, this rift, this rift..........................
Track Name: Alone
1) Stuck, unmentionable,
Questioning existence and this right to, break away,
Fly weightless,
Make sense of this tyranny and live through you’re fucked up

*) Yes I need you and I find you alone
Yes I need you and I find you alone…

2) To see the unthinkable,
Questioning this system and the right to, break away,
Fly weightless,
Make sense of this tyranny and live through you’re fucked up

*) Yes I need you and I find you alone
Yes I need you and I find you alone…

// You think, so don’t bother,
You dream, but don’t bother,
You’re late and don’t bother
You’re hate, don’t bother.
Don’t bother, don’t bother, don’t bother, don’t bother
You’re fucked up

*) Yes I need you and I find you alone
Yes I need you and I find you alone…
Yes I need you and I find you alone
Yes I need you and I find you alone…
Track Name: Sold (loose change version)
1) You can sell out your lonesome,
as you walk out the door.
Like a portal to a new life,
As I change to a stone.

*) Sold, for a penny and me
Sold, now you leave me be
Sold, would you let me breed
Hold on as I break away free….

2) You can spell out the words now
You’re getting harder to get,
As I bottle the fury in my head
While you beg me to spill

*) Sold, for a penny and me
Sold, won’t you let me be
Sold, but you let me breed
Hold on as I break away free….

// I will not doubt your every single way,
I will not fall from grace
I will not doubt your every single word
While still I stand, sold....................
Track Name: Newspaper Boy
1) My heart's in love with a good friend,
As he fights his foe
Night time or church time was holiday.
Carved out his name on the willow-tree bough.

He marches so defiant,
All the streets echo the tune.
That he's given up for a soldier,
Forever the world his brave body to show,

*) I’ve seen him rising up again,
I’ve seen him rising up
I’ve seen it rising ….up in him

2) Here's to good health, said the gentlemen,
He slays ‘long paths and fields,
Fighting like seals in a portrait,
May he see his babies, yet to be born

He’s seen the worst he believes in
Yet he fears to find.
Washed his hands clean of his enemies,
Forever his hands their dead bodies to bleed.

*) I’ve seen him rising up again,
I’ve seen him rising up
I’ve seen it rising ….up in him
Track Name: Devil's Sympathy
1) Hush now little child don’t you shed no tear,
Mommy’s here now she’s here to stay,
Dry your whining eyes and drift in dream
No one to hear you, to hear you scream.

*) Oh, it’s better to leave than be left behind
Oh, it’s better to leave than be left behind

2) Crying whimpers of a hope you play,
Cross the blue sky mommy sails away,
Dreaming whimpers of another place in time,
Hold on and don’t you stray.

*) Oh, it’s better to leave than be left behind
Oh, it’s better to leave than be left behind

Devils sympathy, the sympathy, yeah…
It’s better to leave than be left behind.
Devils sympathy, the sympathy, yeah…
It’s better to leave than be left behind……………
Track Name: Field Of Thought
1) On the green grass I lay alone,
Talk to my self and the shapeless stones
As reason walked by me I pierced through skin
Find no end till I reach within.

2) On the green grass I lay alone,
Talk to my self and these shapeless stones
As reason walked by me I pierced through skin
Find no end till I reach within.

*) And now I’ve fallen deeper than where I am
And now I’ve fallen deeper than where I am

2) Dream like visions lay in my path
Fueling me in my path of wrath
As reason walked by me I pierced through skin,
Find no end till I reach within

*) And now I’ve fallen deeper than where I am
And now I’ve fallen deeper than where I am…
Track Name: Ambush
1) I might smile, with memories
Or I might sigh, when missing you
Let them pass, the past has gone,
I might lie,
Holding your hand……ohhh I…..

*) Stand here while this mom ent passed me by
Didn’t say a word nor did I cry
Hold me as I fight these fears away
Feeling so awake while dead inside

2) I might lie, too close to the
Endless sky, down on its knees,
Burnt scorched ‘n died, the past has gone
I might lie,
Holding your hand…….ohhh
I

*) Stand here while this moment passed me by
Didn’t say a word nor did I cry
Hold me as I fight these fears away
Feeling so awake while dead inside
Track Name: Somewhere In The Night
1) Born of angels with a heart of gold,
hides her secret with lies so cold
Eyes have shifted to the hands so gifted,
Deep inside from home she's drifted.

From many dreams, from many lies,
many why's so many cries
Maybe I'm not special, Maybe I'm not
Gifted.
Deep Inside I'm bent & Twisted.

*) Somewhere in the night a child cries,
a woman weeps, somebody dies
Somewhere in the night humanity hides.

2) Asleep,awake, she's choking on a dream.
Listening aloud to many silent scream.
Calls her mind, a deeper world depicted
Lost in a name so warped & twisted.

In many screams and sleepless nights,
to many why's & too many less.
Maybe I'm not special, maybe I'm not
gifted.
Deep inside I'm bent & twisted.

*)Somewhere in the night a child cries,
a woman weeps, somebody cries.
Somewhere in the night humanity hides.

3) Asleep,awake, she's choking on a dream.
Listening aloud to many silent scream.
Calls her mind, lost in a world so warped
& twisted.

// I will not doubt your every single way,

I will not doubt your every single word
While still I stand, sold....................
Sell out * 19 {and when you’re done screaming the last one, DIE }
