“It’s hard to get excited about new hardcore music anymore, but this is a band to watch.” Decibel Magazine

"You could break cement blocks with some of these breakdowns!"

"Though Hopeless Youth were on the path of innovation, they weren’t actually there yet, not until they realized they didn’t care what anyone had to say."

"The four piece from Montreal, QC manages to make every show as loud, unpredictable, and entertaining as a train wreck. Not to say they fall apart on stage, but rather put themselves in a position to achieve a certain catharsis through violently pouring themselves into every performance." EPK

Track Name: The Garden
Darkened days on their way
The world shivers
Sky in shades of grey
Winter's taking over

Between the trees, the wind has blown
Heavy snow covering the leaves
Arctic chills piercing through my bones
Cold breeze, now time to leave

Best to turn the other cheek, I swear
Shorter days do seem unfair
I don't see it going anywhere
Farewell. Goodbye. Take care

Feelings harden
In great despair
Frozen garden
Goodbye. Take care

Warmer time will come
When spring brings back the sun
Nature will overcome
Transition has begun

The air seems clearer
Ice grew thinner
Through clouds, weak glimmer
First glare of summer

Frost has melted
Storm has ended
Curse has lifted
Peace now rested

Old burden
Gone in a flare
Frozen garden
Goodbye, take care
Track Name: Devil, Walk With Me
Show me the way, Devil, walk with me
Lost for what seems to be an eternity
Shadows of myself is all I could find
Trying to reach what was left behind

Lord, you might have turned your back on me
I know my demons do not give in that easily
Cast me out of your kingdom if it pleases you
Damnation is not the hardest thing one can go through

Show me the moves, Death, dance with me
I cannot follow the melody
Countless sleepless night on the run
Still don't understand what I have become

Show me the light, Silence, speak with me.
The Sun does not shine as bright as it used to be
Why everyone leaves, why the change of heart
Explain why it was always meant to fall apart
Track Name: Moon Child
Staring, evening, late outside a bar
Pale skin, dark hair, dark eyes, red lips charm
Small talk. few drinks, under your spell, here we are
Adults, desire, one night of pleasure, no harm

Midnight temptress
Bad news in a dress
Wear the noose nonetheless
Heavenly sent mistress
Drink the blood, eat the flesh
Majestic goddess

Moon child

Blood's boiling, wide awake
Playing with fire's a definite mistake
But when it burns this good, darling
I'll be the arsonist pouring gasoline

Seven deadly sins
Going through my mind
To the touch of your skin
Forbidden apple, divine
My kingdom for a taste
Throw my life to waste

Black widow in disguise
Mesmerized by these eyes
Tangled by her smile
Poisoned by her lips
Paralyzed by her hips
Devoured alive
Track Name: Light Bearer
Frightened masses
Lord of ashes
Chaos reigns
Out of chains
Different names
Different claims
Sinner to blame

Kneel in the name
Cringe with shame
Allegiance so pure
Eternal hatred to endure

Feathered wings
Servant of kings
Serpent scales
Celestial veil
Fallen protector
Light bearer

I am Light
Track Name: The Price To Pay
Wrong path to follow
Truth, hard to swallow
Double edge daggers
It saved you, It's what matters

No options left
Had to get it off my chest
Forever, I swore
Reasons I'd die for

Once perfection, paved with gold
Never expected to follow this road
I sold it all for the greater good at the crossroads
Until the end of time, I will belong in the gallows

There isn't anything else to say
Grim reaper, fulfilling it's journey
Fine prints, Blood sealed, the price to pay
Burning alive for eternity

I could never confess
My part in this mess
But I can only assume
I sailed this ship to it's doom

It was my everything
Until that faithful evening
All those years, now gone
So long, life carries on

In the wreckage, all is lost
Alone I have faced the cost
I wish I could spare you the pain
Of grieving upon my remains

Hanging from the cross
Contemplating my loss
I guess I had it coming
Here's to nothing
