about

The Quagaars - The "Forgotten Gravity" EP:
1. Forgotten Gravity.
2. Doomsday.
3. Atomic Rain (Uncut).
4. That Is All.

"Forgotten Gravity" originally appeared on The Quagaars' first demo album, "dusting Brainwaves". Several recordings and many live performances later, a new version found it's way onto "Dodge City Tombstone"...which does make sense seeing as the line "Icy cold like a dodge city tombstone" comes from this song.

"Doomsday" was a contender for a place on The Quagaars' 2nd album, "Eternal Candlelight" but was replaced by something more upbeat. There were also concerns that The Quagaars were lyrically going over the same ground that they'd already covered with "Atomic Rain".

"Atomic Rain (Uncut)" is about 30 seconds longer than the album version that appears on "Dodge City Tombstone". Thanks to an awesome music video starring Dani Lugosi, Alex Haize, Slikk Steev and Alexi Papadopoulos, the song has become something of a signature tune for the band.

"That Is All" closed the 2002 demo album "Release Your Inner Gorilla (Zero Gravity Edition)". It has not been heard since...until now.

Track Name: Forgotten Gravity
Verse 1:
Am I the only one who sees,
The patches in the sky,
Searching for the Forgotten Gravity,
Sometimes I feel so high,
But I'm not on any drugs,
Sometimes I feel so low,
Taking it so slow,

Chorus:
Am I one of the tortured souls,
Am I part of the ancient trip,
Am I sitting here dusting brainwaves,
Am I sinking the silver ship,
Am I one of the tortured souls,
Am I sinking the silver ship,
Am I sitting here dusting brainwaves,
Am I part of the ancient trip,

Verse 2:
Is there something lacking,
In their eyes,
Icy cold like a dodge city tombstone,
Never open themselves,
Still looking inside,
Never see the peaceful life,
Always on the road,

Chorus.

Verse 3:
Am I the only one who sees,
The spaceships in the sky,
Searching for the Forgotten Gravity,
Searching for an answer,
That probably isn't there,
Someone might get hurt,
Is anyone aware,

Chorus.

Guitar Solo.

Verse 4:
Am I the only one who hears,
What's going on underground,
Some kind of ecstatic beast,
Working for a system,
That doesn't seem to work,
Working on a system,
I doubt will ever be,

Chorus.

Outro:
Am I the only one who sees,
The patches in the sky,
The space ships in the sky,
Am I the only one who sees,
What's going on underground,
What's going on overseas,
Am I the only one who sees,
The Forgotten Gravity,
Searching for Forgotten Gravity,
Searching for Forgotten Gravity.
Track Name: Doomsday
I can see the light inside,
It's been hidden by the sky,
Don't look too deep into your brain,
You'll slowly find you've gone insane,

The sky is red,
My eyes are red too,
But I can see,
I've been looking right through,
Stuck inside,
Someone else's nightmare,
Looking out,
But no-one else cares,

First you pollute the sky,
Then you wonder why,
The sky is glowing red,
And all you know will soon be dead,

Can't escape,
Can't get away,
Impending doom,
Is here to stay,
There's no way out,
Because it's too late,
Damage is done,
Now this is our fate,

You can never go outside,
You will be burned up by the sky,
You should have listened when you had the chance,
Now it's too late and it's your last dance,

GUITAR SOLO.

First you pollute the sky,
Then you wonder why,
The sky is glowing green,
And everyone is mean,

Is this the end,
Is this doomsday,
Or is this a hoax,
Is this a play,
Stuck inside,
Someone else's nightmare,
Looking out,
But no-one else cares.
Track Name: Atomic Rain (Uncut)
Verse 1:
I can see the world is fading away,
It's getting weaker every day,
Nuclear wind and Atomic Rain,
Is this the future the world's been stained,
Oh Yeah,

Chorus:
And in the morning of the earth,
Should we be morning for the earth,
And in the morning of the earth,
Things have been going bad to worse,

Verse 2:
As the forests disappear and die,
You can hear the animals cry,
Pouring toxic waste into the sea,
No race can kill like humanity,
No they can't now,

Chorus.

Bridge:
And the politicians don't give a shit,
Even though we know that they're full of it,
All they seem to want is war,
And they don't give a fuck what they're fighting for,
No the don't give a fuck what they're fighting for,

Chorus.

Instrumental Section.
Track Name: That Is All
I know it's all in the mind,
It might see inside,
Cheap thrills in your head,
Insanity every night,
We're not allowed,
Some of them have rolled out,
All over the floor,
That's what you said,
Write or try to unwind,
But let the water come right through,
My pills are how you feel,

When someone's locked up under the door,
Feeling is real,
Feelings flow,
When someone's locked up under the door,
Feeling is real,
And That Is All,
Yeah Yeah,
That Is All,
That Is All,
That Is All,
That Is All,
That Is All,
That Is All,
Yeah Yeah.
