about

SONIQ ARMADA Cleveland, Ohio

Edit
SONIQ ARMADA is, in the simplest of terms, exactly what the name implies...a force to be reckoned with. While many bands come and go, SONIQ ARMADA stands the test of time. Established in 2010 and still going strong, the project continues to bring forth it's own brand of mechanized-melodic-metal. On stage, we act as an occupational musical force. Join with us in battle! ... more

Track Name: 700 MILES
I came from a southern land with earth as red as blood
To a frozen tundra on the north coast Erie mud
Left behind are friends and foes and memories of the past
And the promise to one day return to that southern land

So much pain was used to pave this road
On which I shall ride
So much betrayal fueled my desire
To see what I can find

CHORUS

The road's so long
But we stayed strong
Through every twist and turn
A new tale to be told
We came so far
Made a new start
The path that brought me here was 700 miles

It seems I'm so far away
From all I've ever known
Until this day
The memories they still remain
The place that I called home
But I will return there someday

REPEAT CHORUS
Track Name: NIGHTMARE
Seems that I was living a lie
Broken down I felt despised
Distant reflections in my dreams
To break the shackles and be free
CHORUS
Trapped in this unending nightmare
I cannot wake myself
Into the abyss I stare
Focused only on breaking out
Seems my mistakes
Pave every step I take
CHORUS
I cannot fall
Into this trap again
Closed in by walls
Of my subconsciousness
BRIDGE
Seems I am always finding myself
Challenging this world to show me something real
CHORUS
Trapped in this unending nightmare
Have I not learned enough
Into the abyss I stare
From the object lessons of this world
Track Name: STRANGER
A femme fatale is she
A homicidal angel
With looks as dangerous as fire
I saw her on the scene
Does she know I've been watching
That I know about her secret
And then she strikes
At the fools who think they won her
She turns their lust into their undoing
She's the stranger in my mind
Why does she fascinate me so much
She's a killer in disguise
I cannot explain this infatuation

I look upon these streets
Her face is all I see there
Only I know things about her
When she sheds blood
She somehow evades capture
And though she's dangerous I want her

She's the stranger in my mind
A beautiful cold-blooded killer
She's in need of no disguise
But is my attraction just a deathwish?
Track Name: WEAPON OF COMPLIANCE
VERSE 1:
I know where to find you
Any night or day
So don't touch the dial
And listen to the words I say
Your mind is set to download
It's just a click away
But if you thought the ride was free
We're gonna make you pay

CHORUS:
I am the fear that keeps you working to support your habits
I am the sword that cuts you down if you step out of line
I'll gain your awe and compliance through the visions on your screen
I'll take control of your mind...You're no longer free

VERSE 2:
Just watch our leaders
Engage in debate
None of them are on your side
But with a gun control your fate
Enjoy the illusion
That this land is free
Sit back and watch the show
Sponsored by hypocrisy

BRIDGE:
I pledge allegiance to the faceless icons
Of the United Mental States of Propaganda
Thy fears will buy illusions
Thy blood will buy you golden lies

VERSE 3:
I am the master
And you are just a slave
I will fill your head with lies
That you'll believe until your grave
Enjoy the illusion
That this land is free
Sit back and watch the show
Sponsored by hypocrisy
Track Name: FREYJA
Unfaithful watcher and keeper of desires
Veritable mistress of human sin
Like a goddess, but without the grace
She rules a dynasty nocturnal
Her atomic mind can level many mountains
Her poison beauty brings an army to it's knees
Like Isis to Osiris, she is the fire in my blood
Her pathogen of lust and longing impossible to cure
She alone controls the wills of men
The invocation of her rapture I summon in my dreams
Thou enigmatic succubus, how I long for thy embrace
The addiction of your presence intoxicates my soul
The beckoning I feel within for without, my blood runs cold
Freyja, temptress, invading my dreams
Seductive, betrayer, so full of deceit
The bane of my existence is the lust I have for you
Under the shroud of your divinity I shall unveil your naked truth
As I close my eyes it's you I see within climactic entropy
Thus defiling procreation I curse the heavens as I spill the seed.
Track Name: UNDESERVING
You only say the things
The things that you want me to hear
And you don't think that I will find out what the truth is
I know what's in your mind
I know the things that you deny
You cannot hide from me I've seen your darkest fears

Undeserving

You bled me dry
Of all the sacrifices that I made
Oh how convenient you moved on to your next victim
Does he know
That you swore to me you'd always be there?
Does he know you broke your word
That your life is nothing but a lie?

Undeserving

Fate has come
And you you will find
You have lost

A fatal mind
An undeserving soul are you
I've no regrets for my ill thoughts or my transgressions
Now I must salvage
What all remains of my sanity
I will never play your games or ever be your fool again

Your fate has come and you will find that you have lost
Your fate has come and you will find you're all alone
You're all alone

Undeserving
