about

In this haunting tribute to loss, sorrow, and the rebirth that follows, Virginia Rose Band offers their second full length album - Division. Eight tracks, thoughtfully orchestrated, interweave a musical story that leads the listener to share these common experiences with the band. It took three years to conceptualize, record, and produce the album. Written and recorded by Virginia Rose Band, produced and mixed by Mike Wenz, Division is VRB's sophomore release and offers a bonafide progressive synth-rock experience that hits heavy and close to the heart.

Track Name: Still Standing
I really wanna break.
I really wanna fall.
But...we’re all still standing.
I don't wanna wake up.
I don't wanna go.
It gets harder don't you know?
I keep a straight face.
Put on a good show.
But my heart keeps breaking.
The hurt’s so loud above the crowd.
No one seems to notice it, though.
I cry it out.
You don’t hear a sound.
I scream it through every single note.
I really wanna break.
I really wanna fall.
But...we’re all still standing.
I don't want to upset you
With all of my issues.
You have the world to carry now.
Scarring the tissue,
It’s starting to show through.
But you missed it all somehow.
I just keep moving on,
Gotta prove that I’m strong.
Even though i feel like giving in.
Maybe that's how we grow a thicker skin.
Can't let anything in.
I really wanna break.
I really wanna fall.
But...we're all still standing.
Track Name: Universe
Ship’s going down.
Hello to the ground.
It feels like the sky is falling, the sky’s crashing down below my feet.
It was for us, our universe.
You tore it apart.
Now it's just as dark.
I fell alone.
I felt at home.
In our universe.
I hit the ground try not to make a sound.
It feels like my life's crashing, my life’s flashing before my eyes.
It was for us, our universe.
You tore it apart.
Now it's just as dark.
I fell alone.
I felt at home.
In our universe.
Now it's just cold
Toxic inflicted you stupid void.
You engineered masses, fixated the noise,
Of mechanicalistic lipstick and toys.
I brought you these things you wanted destroyed.
All you imagine I created these things.
They were nothing to you just puppets and strings.
Holding the madness my madness is dreams.
Visions of dust made from nothing.
You wanted it badly I’d do anything.
Choking on gravity as I fall down to the ground.
It was for us, our universe.
You tore it apart.
Now it's just as dark.
I fell alone.
I felt at home.
In our universe.
It was our universe.
Track Name: Earthbound Ghost
Pretty little thing.
Such a shame to throw it all away.
Bury another face in a dream.
A darkened dream.
Always to repeat.
A nightmare you can’t escape.
Who you are isn't what you’ve shown them.
Isn't what you want them to see.
Who you are, it's what you've chosen.
Another form of deceit.
Who'd have thought?
All this time you were hidden inside.
Afraid to show the light.
I've gotten to admit.
All this time,
You've gotten away with it.
You've gotten away with it.
Who you are isn't what you've shown them.
Isn't what you want them to see.
Who you are, it's what you've chosen.
Another form of deceit.
You deceive.
I hope it's something you can live with.
I hope it's something that you love.
Its killing all that grows inside your soul and making you all numb.
It's who you are.
(Show me who you are and I’ll believe it.)
It's who you really are.
(Show me who you are and I’ll believe it. I'll believe it.)
If you look at the situation with your hands around the rope.
Gripping and tugging inside yourself.
I hope he doesn't choke.
It once was nice to meet you but now you make me tired.
Keeping up the fake facade didn't last as long as you'd hoped.
It's who you are.
(Show me who you are and I’ll believe it.)
It's who you really are.
(show me who you are and I believe it. I believe it.)
Who you are isn't what you’ve shown them.
Isn't what you want them to see.
Who you are, it's what you've chosen.
Another form of deceit.
You deceive.
Track Name: AI Anatomic
Someone once said:
“We’re better off dead.”
Machines we all work,
Not to get fed.
I sold my soul for a piece of that bread.
Foaming from the mouth with the words as they spread.
‘Cause choking on something is better than nothing.
I chase down my poison with sugar and treason.
‘Cause hoping is for fairy tales and fairy tales don't happen.
Wishing in one hand while the other gets strucken.

Poor old me.
The things that keep me up at night.
Poor old me.
The monsters I just cannot hide.
Poor old me.
The things that keep me up at night.
The monsters inside.
The monsters I wanna hide.
Track Name: Paragon
Across the room you stare into my soul.
Stars set fire.
I fell into your eyes.
The heat passes through, I can't hide.
Do you wanna know me?
How it feels to be alive inside.
I’m inside.
A shiver goes down my spine.
Like being touched for the first time
Can I show you how it feels right now?
Can I love you?
Because I need it right now.
Feels good inside you.
Once for a lover.
Once just to feel.
I want to show you exactly what is real.
Alive.
Once for a lover.
Once just for thrill.
I tried to show you what isn’t real.
Doesn’t it feel better?
Don't let go.
Don't let go.
Don't let go ‘till I say.
Don't let go ‘till I said.
Don't let go we’re all dead.
Don't let go ‘till I said.
Don't let go we’re all dead.
Across the room you stare into my soul.
Inside you.
Track Name: Give Me One More Day
The Rhythm’s wrong.
The feeling’s gone.
I try to find the peace of mind to write it down.
This place in hell reserved for me and it's all too well.
You criticized everything.
Every word, but it's all the same.
I wish you would’ve been more proud of what I've become.
This place is loud.
Critical things are not what they seem.
Typical, I’m the one you always blame.
And after it all who’s there when you fall?
Who’s there for you now?
Give me one more day.
Don't let it slip away.
You promised me forever.
Forever's not today.
Don’t go away.
My roots are gone.
Forgotten bond.
Where did I ever come from?
You told me once.
I wrote it down.
On a blank piece of paper.
Now it’s gone like the ones I’ve loved and lost.
And it’s all because they had to go.
I should have known.
One last time I’d let them know -
Beautiful things are written in the seams.
Different because none has our love.
And after it all, I'm there when you fall.
I'm there for you now.
Give me one more day.
So, give me one more day.
Don't let it slip away.
You promised me forever.
Forever’s not today.
You promised me forever.
Just know.
Give me one more day to say what I didn’t say.
You promised me forever.
Forever’s not today.
Give me one more day.
Track Name: Source Coda
It's hard to imagine a world without music.
A world void of feeling.
It's kind of disturbing.
It's so cold without a soul
There's gotta be more.
I wanna feel it all.
Ohhhh, can you hear it?
Ohhhh, my heart’s everywhere.
Ohhhh, it's not just music.
Ohhhh, my heart’s in every word.
Isn't it toxic not to feel alive?
I live in each moment as you watch me die.
What can I say?
What can I do to make you feel the same way too?
Ohhhh, can you hear it?
Ohhhh, my heart’s everywhere.
Ohhhh, it's not just music.
Ohhhh, my heart’s in every word.
Can you hear it?
