about

Iron Years Chicago, Illinois

Chicago’s own IRON YEARS thrives in the darkness, with an intense stage presence that deserves to be drenched in shades of purple. Much like similarly nocturnal post-punk pioneers JOY DIVISION and THE CURE, there’s a catchiness to IRON YEARS’ work that will keep their riffs in your head long after the show’s done. ... more

Track Name: Lucid
I vividly recall this feeling
That I'd never become unchained
From all those times before
When the hurt would pulsate

But I've reached new heights
Death is for the foolish
And now I know
I've finally woken up

It was a cold night
When it came to me
I knew I should and I wanted to
Let you go

I don't have time for goodbyes
I don't have patience for apologies
I've finally woken up
I've finally woken up

But I've been feeling far too free
To cage myself again
I want to give myself to everyone
Don't wait outside my window anymore
And please remember this
I promised you nothing more

Easy on the pressure
I've been there before
It's not happening again
This time it's different the conversation's real
Unlike you were back then
I've reached new heights
Death is for the foolish
And now I know
I've finally woken up

But I've been feeling far too free
To cage myself again
I want to give myself to everyone
Don't wait outside my window anymore
And please remember this
I promised you nothing more
Track Name: Nostalgia
It's cold and stormy now
But if I close my eyes, I can still remember
Those summer nights in my car
When we listened to sad songs

I can still see the twilight looming
the city lights, were blinding
My hands tangled in your hair
Whispering softly

Like a flower in a book
Your pressed against my memories
Slick rain, warm air
Your hands were always so cold

Breaking out into the world
Breathing in the air
I swallow hard
You make me nervous
But I only want to be here
That final night in the woods is engraved in my mind
For always
The pale moonlight etched against your face
Would you meet me there again

Like a flower in a book
Your pressed against my memories
Slick rain, warm air
Your hands were always so cold
Track Name: Leave
I see your face, and it changes me
I feel your grip, when I'm dead asleep
The leaves blow past, there is no breeze
No sign of who I used to be
Is it enough to remind me
I don't need anything

I spent my nights always driving away
Pretending that there is a better place
Where you can't beg me to stay
A place where I don't see your face
Is it enough to remind me
I don't need anything

Here I go
The lonely one
With a soul
On fire like the sun
A headache roaring, infinitely
A dull pain, nearly blinding me

And I will choose to be alone

I have thoughts I won't say out loud
That linger over me like a cloud
And I still sleep in your clothes
As a memory I can't transpose
Is it enough to remind me
I don't need anything

Here I go
The lonely one
With a soul
On fire like the sun
A headache roaring, infinitely
A dull pain, nearly blinding me

And I will choose to be alone
Track Name: Control
I'll never see them again
Won't have to face their anger
Don't have to call them my friends

I'll never hear them again
The echoing laughter
When I find it again

Control, Control

The bitter tears
The iron years
I'll never live them again

I've worked so hard through the pain
So hard to try and regain
Control

The memories fall hard like rain
But I can see clearly again
I've got control

Control, control

The bitter tears
The iron years
I'll never live them, again
Never live them
Again

I'll never shed tears again
No plotting useless revenge
I've got control

Won't lose myself again
This time I will reach the end
I've got control

Control
