about

Thirteen Seventy Brisbane, Australia

Mixing obscurity, heaviness, beauty, a post aggressive nature and an alarmingly unpredictable attention span, Thirteen Seventy are producing internal sounds for an external world. After releasing albums Arrest The Slide in 2012, and Bitter Dream in 2015, the band have been holed up working on their 3rd record. The more visceral, eclectic Cover Up The Signs was released in August 2016. ... more

Track Name: Hermits
Sat alone in the dark,
Swigging Maker's Mark,
Every globe in the house blown,
All I need is a spark.

Stereo's still fried,
Got stuck on You Am I,
If you could listen through the walls,
You'd hear the rats crawl by.

Watch the wallpaper curl,
While my phone drains,
I feel the same,
Don't you know?

I'd turn the tele on,
But I ain't got one,
So I drink until I pass out,
With the curtains drawn.

Watch the wallpaper curl,
While my phone drains,
I feel the same,
Don't you know?

There's a world outside,
But these walls ain't tired,
There's more to explore yet,
In this fractured mind.

I've been awake,
For several days,
My headaches,
Of being depraved,
Don't you -

Watch the wallpaper curl,
While my phone drains,
I feel the same,
Don't you know?
Track Name: Burn
Don't want to tell you but I think I can explain,
I couldn't help but feeling quite ashamed,
Count the seconds disappearing down the drain,
While you pretend you didn't notice when I came.

Why don't you burn?
Why don't you burn your name on me?

Now you send me matchsticks in the mail,
I know you're laughing but they're really not to scale.

Why don't you burn?
Why don't you burn your name on me?
Track Name: Inside
She's a waterfall flowing against the stream,
She's the bright light glowing inside of me,
She's the voice inside singing amongst debris,
She's my favourite song when I fall asleep.

She's a wonderwall standing amongst the trees,
She's the brightest star shining above me,
She's a friendly smile when I'm unhappy,
She's the only one who can see through me.

She's the one inside singing...
She's the one inside...
Track Name: Ice
Ice on your mouth I hate you till hell freezes over,
Twice I kiss you hoping that you will recover,
Ice on your mouth I hate you till hell freezes over,
Twice I kiss you hoping that you will recover.

Your lost love for me, your forever enemy,
Your lost tenderness, I cannot want you any less.

Wrote a letter to your soul sent it to your eyes,
sent it back you were not there at all still I do not realise,
Wrote a letter to your soul sent it to your eyes,
sent it back you were not there at all still I do not realise,
Ice on your dirty words freezing in my ears,
Try to hear a warmer chord so that I can know I’m living,
Ice on your dirty words freezing in my ears,
Try to hear a warmer chord so that I can know I’m living.

Your lost love for me, your forever enemy,
Your lost tenderness, I cannot want you any less.

Ice on your mouth I hate you till hell freezes over,
twice I kiss you hoping that you will recover,
Ice on your mouth I hate you till hell freezes over,
twice I kiss you hoping that you will recover.

Your lost love for me, your forever enemy,
Your lost tenderness, I cannot want you any less,
Your lost love for me, your forever enemy,
Your lost tenderness, I cannot want you any less.
Track Name: Scene
It's the end,
Couldn't wait 'til I was ready,
You want everything,
Don't shit where you feed...

It's the scene, it's not me,
It's the sound inside of me,
Why must I depend,
On everyone that you see?

You're not creating, you're just masturbating.
You're not creating...

It's the end,
Why won't you listen to me?
It's not about the music now,
Who's in your head this evening?

It's the scene, it's not me,
The sound is my disease,
Why must I depend,
On the one you wished I'd been?

You're not creating, you're just masturbating.
You're not creating...
Track Name: Dry
I let my hair fall down on you,
Shelter underneath,
Strands flick through your eyelashes,
Rain vitriol down on me.

Your lips embrace a reality,
I can never seek,
Tug gently at my love,
And spit it right back at me.

Sour wine, left out to dry,
Stains the glass and makes her cry,
Sour wine, left out to dry,
Stains the glass and makes her cry.

I want to stare right down on you,
Sing a song to thee,
Precious lover does and doesn't,
Mean a thing to me.

Sour wine, left out to dry,
Stains the glass and makes her cry,
Sour wine, left out to dry,
Stains the glass and makes her cry.

I'm gonna bleed right out on you,
Cover all the lies,
Like a cheap and viscous wine,
Clinging to the sides.

Sour wine, left out to dry,
Stains the glass and makes her cry,
Sour wine, left out to dry,
Stains the glass and makes her cry.
Track Name: Mirror
Imagine you said all that you thought,
How many friends would you have?
If you took a chance, a chance on it all,
Would they still be there if you fell?

When I look in the mirror I see an older version of myself...
Track Name: Falling
When I look into your eyes I see the sky,
When I look into your heart I see you falling apart,
Falling apart,
Falling apart...

Only shadows in your mind can dim the light,
A plastic heart will only lie in the night,
In the night,
In the night...
Track Name: Now
I'm leaving,
To see a better place,
With both my eyes clouded and,
Stained with blood,
It runs down my face,
My feet stand, drowning,
In tears I shed.

Why now?
Why not wait?
Why now,
Please not today.

I'm heeding,
A voice inside me,
A soulless breath that whispers to me,
To leave,
And kill this bitter dream.

Why now?
Why not wait?
Why now?
Please not today,
Why now?
When I'm afraid,
Why now?
Tomorrow Waits...
Track Name: Rubble
Well I'm waiting for someone,
I've been down here for so long,

I've been drowning in a fog,
Of the lies told in your songs.

Well I'm tangled,
Beneath the weight of your rubble.

Well I'm tiring of the junk,
And I'm fed up with your funk,
You're just wasting all our time,
Singing like you believe your own hype.

Well I'm tangled,
Beneath the weight of your rubble.
Track Name: Exit
You were old enough to know better than to give it all away,
You were old enough to know better than to give it all away,
You thought it would be easy just to slip away,
You were old enough to know better than to not want us to stay.

And I still can't remember when I last saw you smile,
You were old enough to know better than to think you weren't worthwhile.

You were old enough to know better,
Old enough to know better,
Old enough...

You were old enough to know better, but it feels like yesterday,
We're all old enough to know better, but the void won't go away...
