Most hardcore bands barely last a few years, & have a revolving door of band members. Up Front has managed to last over 25 years (part-time for the last 20 years), & with the exception of a few changes early on, the lineup has remained intact. Up Front's latest shows were in 2005, 2009 & 2010, drawing their set list from early releases like the Spirit LP through their last 7" released in 1999. ... more

Track Name: Fade
There used to be a time when everything was so clear, so simple, but now I'm not so sure
Friends you knew, or so you thought, changed, faded, lost
I guess it's hard not to change with the times, the world closes in, nowhere to hide
Like seasons of the year, things come and go without warning
What was once in front of you now lags far behind, lags far behind
Maybe it's just me maybe I'm the one who changes
Is everybody else the same? How do you know how can you know?
I guess I'll just live my life and hope that I can cope,
I've done so so far but tomorrow's another day...Another day!
Track Name: Downfall
It seems like it's all forgotten, as if no one cares
I guess that all has been said, is still drifting in the air
What's to become of it all, it seems we're heading nowhere
This movement has become stagnant and for those who care, it's not fair
It's just not fair
Once roaring loud as thunder striving for a better way, living by the words you said
Are now just words of yesterday
What's been said just hasn't been done and I can't give up just yet
For those words I've spoken throughout the years are words I don't regret

The downfall of your mind brings the downfall of mankind
All those words you left behind brings the downfall of you mind
Track Name: Distance
Growing up, growing apart, yet there's still a place here in my heart
In which I'll keep for you to fill, our paths will cross, I know they will
They'll come a time when the sun will still shine and I'll see your shadow standing next to mine

These times we've shared, they won't wither away
'Cause in my heart my friend, they're always here to stay
And in time the bond of ours grows stronger
And in time we'll be apart no longer

Yesterday is in the past and today is going fast
But my friend don't forget you haven't seen the last of me yet

Don't fear the distance!
Track Name: Veracity
What not to do, what not to say, these lies always get in my may
This feeling inside I can't contain, but my thoughts to you I can't explain
My true emotions hidden? it's just not real, because I cannot erase the way that I feel
To do so at any cost, effort wasted, effort lost
Track Name: We Are The Enemy
We sometimes ask ourselves "what will the future bring", I say we can't sit around and wait to find out
It's up to us to work in the present and make the future a better place for all of us to live
It's up to us to change tomorrow, it's up to us to rearrange
Our actions today cannot go wrong or go astray
The judge and the jury are watching us, we must not fail

Why do we think the problems that we bring
Will heal themselves and fade away
Some don't get the picture of what they do, it's in ourselves we are the enemy
Let's pull together and make tomorrow the place that we know it can be
There's a time to talk and a time to act
That time has come, that time is now
It's in our hands to make things right
To start a new and change our plight
Track Name: Whispers
Long nights lapse into morrow, yesterday seems so far away
Solitude brings forth the sorrow of a long ago forgotten day
My vision's blurred by all that I've seen, memories of you float by with the passing breeze
Your touch so soft your hand in mine, the pain we've shared the tears we've cried
Moonlight silhouette your image cast, frozen forever in my past

So hard to forget the way I felt for you, one word from you would make my day complete
The feeling of your beating heart, beneath your skin so close to mine
Your caring words your gentle kiss, a reflection back in time of all I miss

It feels like time is slipping through my hands, familiar voices reaching out to me
Now just faded words stained with yesterday

Just whispers in the air

Life and all it's joys seem to fade into my mind, feeling torn which way to turn
To set my mind at ease, all alone reaching from inside
I know I must break free
Track Name: Daybreak
Every day I try to see every path in front of me
and yet I wonder what is the key there must be something to set me free

Daybreak it's in my sight

Now I find and now I see the problem lies deep in my mind
and in the distance I see a crack of light daybreak it's in my sight.

Daybreak it's in my sight
