about

Flannel Season Iowa City, Iowa

These rockers are children of autumn and the grunge era. Add some modern stoner rock and just a general, all-around band handsomeness, and Flannel Season has grown into one of the heavier and melodic rock bands of the Iowa City scene. Where there is a need for rock, heavy riffs, harmonies and beards, you will find these plaid-clad headbangers. ... more

Track Name: Centralia
Hey!
The ground that is under your feet is corrupt
Better look where you're standing,
Start to get moving
Before everything is burned up
I said hey!
The words that you speak will drag you to hell
You came here uninvited, assaulting the center, ignorance broken the spell

Right to defy, your hate, hate
How can this by my life?
Dealing with you?
Disdain, my rage, you're not going to break me

Hey!
The cracks in the pavement are coming your way
Rock seething and burning, blazing beneath you, everything ends in decay
I said hey!
I've had it up to here with your shit
I've heard your opinion, you're well past the line now, and teetering over the pit

Right to defy, your hate, hate
How can this by my life?
Dealing with you?
Disdain, my rage, you're not going to break me

That's enough, time to get a move on
Think you're tough? You're just digging your own grave
Off the cuff, I'd say you're out of luck now
Next time, if you're looking for some action, call someone who cares

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Right to defy, your hate, hate
You're not going to break me
Track Name: Piss Wizard
This is your god, an easy prey
Don't think too hard, piss it away
It's black and white, and shades of gray
It's time to fight, wars underway

When you gonna join the fight?
Enter into the fray
Think we got them on the run

Stare into the rectangle
You're hypnotized, it will be your fall
They know just what you'll do
If you see them they're coming for you

This is your god, an easy prey
Don't think too hard, piss it away
It's black and white, and shades of gray
It's time to fight, wars underway

Stare into the rectangle
You must obey or they'll take it all, you know?
They know just what you'll do

Go!

When you gonna join the fight?
Enter into the fray
Think we got them on the run

Gotta put the glasses on
Seeing only lies; engage
Gonna have to shut 'em down
Lifting up the human cage

They live, we sleep
Watch the TV
They live, we sleep
You can't make me
Track Name: Electric Hearts
The chaos fell, but all I can hear is your talking
The thunder roared, your babble is endless mocking
Piercing walls yet unbroken

Standing fast, on the edge of existence
Shooting fire, drinking hops for subsistence
The wizard is standing, soaking

Every second, every minute, every hour that it takes
Every act of pain, and my frustrations, that I can't unmake
We still hear the drunken rabble, even as the walls do shake

In between, sits the possibility
The light and the dark, nothing or eternity
Choose something or hold your peace

Every second, every minute, every hour that it takes
Every act of pain, and my frustrations, that I can't unmake
We still hear the drunken rabble, even as the walls do shake

Explosive laughter sounds
Plans are passed around
Glass that needs the ground
Electric heart still pounds

These bright moments are fleeting
Electric heart is still beating

Ahead is my vision
Behind is a prison
These bright moments are fleeting
Electric heart is still beating

Electric heart still pounds
Track Name: Frenzied and Furious
Dawn's light breaks, and slaps me right in the face
Toss and turn, and look where I can brace
We've crossed the line, we knew it would come in time
And so we push for moving on

Back amongst the dirt, is where you find what you're worth
We dwell a spell, then move along
The time has come to push, harder against the throng
We've sat waiting far too long

They're always on our tail
One false move, we fail
The hounds are on our heels
But the chase has changed me

We're not breaking, no mistaking us
Blood and sweat, enough to lift us up
We're not breaking, no mistaking us
Blood and sweat, enough to lift us up
There's no mistaking!
Track Name: Bedlam
Drifting leaves, they pile up deep, covering what was achieved
Creeping moss, collecting in corners, reclaiming all that is lost

Mists are drifting
Obscures the entropy
It's time to be leaving

Rusting shells, once holding dreams, now it's all gone to Hell
Sunset flames, they bask in the fallout, already they are changed

Dusty beams, partly revealing, filtering through the seams
Broken tracks, are covered over, this isn't a good way back

Mists are drifting
Obscures the entropy
It's time to be leaving
Let the bedlam take it
Track Name: Dunwich Drift
The depthless tide was seething
Deep cracks arise, revealing
These new stains on my mind but I'm still breathing
Although sinking slowly

Echoes and lines are flowing
These tranquil thoughts lay broken
Now my mind is so swift and unfocused
As daylight is falling

Been tethered down
These weeks have drained me
But I can't let it go
These anchors maintain me

Unbounded sky was freedom
A blanket of eyes, all-seeing
And if they go blind, I'm still breathing
Although sinking slowly

And if they go blind, I'm still breathing
And if they go blind...
Track Name: Slaying Grace
I woke up Monday and remembered how to smile
My crumbled, stone heart hadn't beaten for a while
And in that moment, I had something left to give
And maybe someday have a life that I could live

I couldn't sleep, went in too deep
You're in my bed, stuck in my head
Can't find a reason why you wouldn't want to go
Just thought you should know

Eyes opened Tuesday and I felt that I had grown.
Looked over next to me to find I was alone.
You left your marks on me, deep and on both sides.
Another loveless lover, at least I finally tried.

I couldn't sleep, went in too deep
You're in my bed, stuck in my head
Running round in circles, to make what might have been
These pillars will rise again

I'm alive! I'm awake!
Am I happy by mistake?
I've got one wet face from lying in your wake.
I'm on fire from the fame.
I'm so happy that you came.
Put me in my place, you're my slaying grace.

I couldn't sleep, went in too deep
You're in my bed, stuck in my head
Can't find a reason why you wouldn't want to go
Just thought you should know

I'm alive! I'm awake!
Am I happy by mistake?
I've got one wet face from lying in your wake.
I'm on fire from the shame.
I'm so happy that you came.
Put me in my place, you're my slaying grace.
Track Name: Wheels
We're going around again
I swallowed my tail and found no end
Maybe you thought that we we're spent
But a wheel is meant to spin

I have changed
I've passed through so many gates in this way
Ever closer to the gold I've made

I have changed
I crawled like a snake when I shed my wings
Then I was lifted by my own strength

Cooled by water, I felt Mercury ascend

Steam is rising, the white bird's in the air
Cool the spirit off and reconnect the pair

We're going around again
I swallowed my tail and found no end
Maybe you thought that we we're spent
But a wheel is meant to spin
Track Name: Acoustic Hearts
The chaos fell, but all I can hear is your talking
The thunder roared, your babble is endless mocking
Piercing walls yet unbroken

Standing fast, on the edge of existence
Shooting fire, drinking hops for subsistence
The wizard is standing, soaking

Every second, every minute, every hour that it takes
Every act of pain, and my frustrations, that I can't unmake
We still hear the drunken rabble, even as the walls do shake

In between, sits the possibility
The light and the dark, nothing or eternity
Choose something or hold your peace

Every second, every minute, every hour that it takes
Every act of pain, and my frustrations, that I can't unmake
We still hear the drunken rabble, even as the walls do shake

Explosive laughter sounds
Plans are passed around
Glass that needs the ground
Electric heart still pounds

These bright moments are fleeting
Electric heart is still beating

Ahead is my vision
Behind is a prison
These bright moments are fleeting
Electric heart is still beating

Electric heart still pounds
