about

Ash Williams San Diego, California

Ash Williams is a punk band that wishes it was a black metal band. Instead of fjords, we have sandy beaches here in San Diego, but don’t let that fool you. The ocean is the most destructive force on the planet and it will eventually swallow us all. We live near it for we do not fear death.

That’s pretty damn metal

Track Name: Simplicity
You and me are just a collection of molecules,
On a rock spinning around a star,
And football American and for the rest of the world,
Is just a group of people running up and down a field,
Hate, Love and happiness are just small synapsis,
Triggered in different regions of the brain.
Board games are pieces of cardboard being played with,
TV and Video games are just screens being stared at,
Death and birth are just the bookends to your life cycle,
And the middle is trying not to go in either direction,
Depression is being sad.
Anxiety is being anxious.
Boredom is a concept brought about by visual stimulants.
Sexuality is just how you wanna fuck,
Boxing is man fighting another man,
War is man fighting another man,
Politics is a man fighting another man,
And here I am fighting all of man.

And happiness could be simplified if someone could find it...

Simplicity removes everything's beauty.
Sure it's nice to have things dumbed down,
But you lose the complexity,
And although complexity is sometimes trying,
It's what makes everything beautiful and ugly and inspiring,
You're beautiful not because you're like everyone else,
But because of the complexities located in yourself.
Track Name: Paralysis
I CAN'T MOVE

Caught between reality and this dream,
My nightmares invade everything,
Is this person next to me,
Trying to end my life,
She's fooled me into thinking she's asleep,
But in my mind,
Someone is strangling me,
Open my mouth,
But I cannot scream,
The shadows that surround me now,
Try to engulf my soul,
Get up wake up do something,
Body do what your told!

I CAN'T MOVE
I CAN'T FEEL
WHAT'S RIGHT
WHAT'S REAL

The demons dance around my bed,
Convince myself that it's all in my head,
There was no one in this room,
When I fell asleep,
So who are all these people,
Staring Back at me,
I just know they want to see me cry,
Constantly feeling like I'm going to die,
Calm your brain,
Relax your mind,
Shut them all out,
You'll be just fine

I CAN'T MOVE
I CAN'T FEEL
WHAT'S RIGHT
WHAT'S REAL
Track Name: Pulsar (Fall of the Cosmonaut: Part 1)
They say in space,
Your screams can't be heard,
AHHHH,
Running out of air,
Our final days are here,
The ship began to crisp,
All systems failing,
ALL SYSTEMS GONE
With boosters destroyed,
We plummet faster,
My life,
before my eyes,
All that's left,
is death by light,
Sphere engulfed by flames,
Killing all of the night.

Flashing light,
Pulling with might,
Dying Star,
PULSAR

Super Giant,
Going Quiet,
Burn far,
PULSAR

We long for darkness,
Then we'd be safe,
if we were to die,
in the shade of night,
At least we,
Wouldn't see,
The last looks in,
Our shipmates lives,
As they burned,
Alive,
Blood leaves my eyes,
Boiling inside,
Don't tell my family back home,
The way that I go,
Let them be at peace,
Thinking I was as well

Flashing Light,
Pulling with might,
Dying Star,
PULSAR

Super Giant,
Going Quiet,
Burn far,
PULSAR
Track Name: Dead Planets (Fall of the Cosmonaut: Part 2)
The shapes - the hulls fall where they may
Crater impact lines will stay
You never reached the event horizon we all sought for you to seek
It waits- the structures stand in shame
Sullen casks now bathed with flames
It’s over now, forever it sleeps

We watched your chest expand until it popped
Wishing we could make it all stop
Now we live with the guilt
You were never ready
You should have never flew
The thought of exploration misconstrued our views

In vain- the threads they come undone
They reach towards distant suns
A once rival of fear, festooned here, now dead planets they will feed
I hope the path you chose to be
Lit the course for dreams obscene
But it’s over now, forever it sleeps.

We watched your chest expand until it popped
Wishing we could make it all stop
Now we live with the guilt
You were never ready
You should have never flew
The thought of exploration misconstrued our views
Track Name: Lycan
I hate the night,
Brings out what I love and what I despise,
Nothing good happens after dark,
For humans at least,
Going blind from rage,
This change hurts my bones,
Waking up in a bloody haze,
Frightened and alone.

The Sun is down,
The Moon is full,
Your heart is loud,
Hear the blood pulse,
Turn and run,
Please leave fast,
Before I change,
And this day is your last.

Chain me to this floor,
I don't wanna kill anymore,
Leave me in this room,
And pray I don't get out,
Lock the door,
And throw away the key,
Make Silver my friend,
And I'll never change again.

The Sun is down,
The Moon is full,
Your heart is loud,
Hear the blood pulse,
Turn and run,
Please leave fast,
Before I change,
And this day is your last.
Track Name: Death Echoes
Why won't you let me leave this place?
Even though you can't see my face,
I'm crying, wailing, hear me moan,
I can see you, but I'm still alone.
I watch the crimson pool form,
Watch the liquid drip down my arms,
Don't make me live all this again,
I beg and plead that you, my friend,

You salt and burn my bones
This is no longer my home
I watch myself die again and again,
Oh this life I want to end,

I don't sleep I don't eat,
Again and Again I accept defeat,
Please set me free,
I lived my life and it ended in agony,
What do you think my family would say,
If they saw me die this way,
I'm forced to live it every day,
Every fucking day.

Use salt and burn my bones
This is no longer my home
I watch myself die again and again,
Oh this life I want to end,
Let me go
Track Name: Moths
Mommy can you tell me where the moths go?
At night,
Some are big and scary,
But I know they're alright.
They don't wanna hurt me,
They just wanna say hi,
But mommy, where do the moths go,
When the sun is in the sky?
I haven't seen daddy,
In such a long time,
I miss playing on the swings,
And singing nursery rhymes.
Is daddy where the moths go?
Please tell me why
Ask him to come back with them,
When they visit in the night.

I'm not scared of the moths anymore,
They're all my little friends.
I whisper messages for daddy,
Hoping that he gets them.
I wish I could go where the moths go,
Where the light comes from,
Not today, but someday,
Daddy misses his sun.

Where do the moths go after the night?
When the sun's in the sky,
Where we go when we die?
Track Name: Hollow
Save it, won’t move
Such loss of storage
Things we prop up
Hate weighs what we answer

The watch that came settled the edge
Of lonely mistakes that hide in their place
Unexpectedly wrought forever in flames
Stations tend rent, now blue in the face

Build it up
Let's tear it down
Remove the straw
Emptiness resounds
Build it up
Help tear it down
Burn it to the ground
Scatter ashes around
Words never found
Burn it down

Constructs that shape got worse worn for wear
Hope anything will change, this primordial shame

Build it up
Let's tear it down
Remove the straw
Emptiness resounds
Build it up
Help tear it down
Burn it to the ground
Scatter ashes around
Words never found
Burn it down

Let's burn it down
To the ground
Track Name: Everything's Comin' Up Roadhouse
Wake up
Throw on you shoes
You gotta go to work
You've got shit to do
Punch some numbers
Into a screen
Answer the phone
When it rings

Repetition is the definition of insanity
Repetition is the definition of insanity
Repetition is the definition of insanity
Repetition is why I'm crazy

Clock out
Get back on the road
You gotta sit through traffic
On your way home
Spend your life
Staring at a tv
Never asking
What it all means

Repetition is the definition of insanity
Repetition is the definition of insanity
Repetition is the definition of insanity
Repetition is why I'm crazy

Work for that money
Sleep then die
In a hole in the ground
With your face towards the sky
Track Name: Regrets
All the thanks drained strength right on through this time around
Undeserved way to these make last words stay
Agonized when ugly points were read all aloud unwanted
Out of spite I chopped right from my knees and counted scenes

Take for granted a life you had that ran aground
It was once so strong but now it sinks
They’ll never know once re-done times, they stick around wanting.
Suffragettes that kick and sting

Open up and sign my name
Take it for my own good I mean it
Prop up this unread shame
I need a reminder...
That things that you lose still remember the past and the truth


Go take down this
Last thing you squandered:
“You don’t know a thing till it’s gone”
Go take down this
Fit of repression:
“Not here, I’ll never retrieve it”
