Children of Orion Saint Petersburg, Florida

Children of Orion are the modern day bards, regaling with tales of dying galaxies, eternal souls, and everlasting love.

They technically are a theatrical, progressive, sci-fi, alt. rock band.

Every piece of music they write is tied to a unified concept, set in a universe very similar to our own; each album is its own
story arc, with stories overlapping each other.

Track Name: You Lied
I waited for you by the fountain
I waited, and waited, and waited
but you never came, you never came
I guess I'm the one to blame
Did you notice when the lights were off
all the things that were wrong with me?
I guess you didn't see

Did we move too fast?
Did I scare you away?
It wasn't built to last
Only here for a day

And now I'm alone

The rising moon
it mirrored our affair
One half shined bright
the other half wasn't there
But any woman looking through
my eyes could realize the same

You Lied

First impressions are the easiest to fake
I knew you were too good to be true
I knew you were too good to be true

A terrible lie I escaped
to turn away from all that I knew
Reaching out for salvation
I thought that was you

But all it seemed
that I could glean
Was a White Knight shadow
just lost in a dream, and

You Lied

I waited here in the dark
Where are you?
My world is torn apart
I need you now
In time you'll fade away
This pain will fade away
But tell me why

You Lied
Track Name: A Million Suns
On this precipice we stand
Will you hold me now?
God knows how this will end

Now the dark is closing in
The void is calling out
Don't look, just hold my hand

I can feel the separation of worlds tonight
Without choice or fear to accompany
Hold my hand into this pitch tonight
With you oblivion feels like a finite thing

And I feel it in my soul:
A consummation of things insurmountable
How could I have known,
with you I'd be sustainable?

And I find: I'd follow.

A million suns may burn,
but not our hearts
And though this world will turn,
we won't be moved

Death is living if it's with you

I'll wait for you
I'll wait for you
I'll wait for you
I'm waiting for
