val_bourque It's hard to choose a favorite from this album. Every song here blows me to another galaxy. I live my life through music and lyrics and I just want to stand in front of these guys to hear all of it. I enjoy jumping right into the fire filled dungeon. It's where I seek the burn. 🖤 Favorite track: Take It Out On Me.

Comes With The Fall's second full-length album, "The Year Is One," helped cement their reputation as a force to be reckoned with in underground rock. The album garnered significant college radio airplay and press reviews, including this from David Fricke in the February 14, 2002 issue of Rolling Stone:

"NEW YEAR, OLD LOUD: The first hot tip for 2002 is a hard-rock delight that will make your head spin in reverse - to the late-Eighties dawn of Seattle and the Presence-era bloom of Led Zeppelin. Sounding like rap metal and bubble punk never happened, The Year Is One (DVL Recordings, CD) by the L.A. power trio Comes With The Fall is a record of vintage kicks: fat melodic riffing and heroically sung vocals. It's no accident that ex-Alice in Chains guitarist Jerry Cantrell has used CWTF as his backing band on tour. On their own, singer-guitarist-songwriter William DuVall, bassist Adam Stanger and drummer Bevan Davies actually sound like Alice unchained, firing up the thumping classicism of "Murder Scene" and "So Cruel" with wholly modern pop heart. "We're gonna hijack time/We're gonna raise the dead," DuVall promises in "So Divine," howling like an improbable mix of Jimi Hendrix and Deep Purple's Ian Gillan. Perfectly titled for an era of rebuilding, this is a great rock record for and about starting over."

Track Name: Murder Scene
MURDER SCENE (Lyrics: DuVall, Music: DuVall, Constantine)

Crawl past my name
Through my vein
Feel me
Parasite taking flight
In deathless night
Free me

For your eyes that see through my design
Cannot break me now
Another taste of wine
Come and be my murder scene
You’ll be the death of me

Feel the last goodbye
That made you cry

Come and take me now

Track Name: Unbreakable

Think about what you need
And how you’ve been denied
Think about what you are
Are you satisfied?

I’m untouchable
But you love the devil in me
And you’re so fuck-able
But I know I’ll never get it for free

Let the power fall
‘Cause they can’t kill us all
And we love to see them crawl
The day is coming

Hey, look me in the eye
Can’t you see that I’m unbreakable?

Think about the wasted tears
That you made me cry
Think about the wasted years
I was forced to try

Now I’m insatiable
But I can’t swallow what you’re feeding
Not invisible
But you only love me when I’m bleeding

Track Name: So Cruel

No words I say can speak my heart
And no mask I wear will let me play the part
If I could be a better liar
Then I might better hide my true desire

You’re so cruel
So cruel when you walk on by
You drive me wild
I’m hungry like a newborn child
You’re so cruel
So cruel when you walk on by

Maybe we choose our destiny
Born to be drifters on a raging sea
And crucified upon this cross that we call love
When you’re the only one that I’ll be dreaming of

Track Name: Strung Out On A Dream

Lover, I just can’t make sense of this
How I could hate you just as much as miss you
Lover, on a lonely night like this
I would trade my kingdom just to kiss you

And now the violet hour calls
It wakes me from my sleep
For I want so much more
Than you would have me keep

Strung out on a dream
Stranded where I lay
But over and again
I give myself away
Strung out on a dream
But I see the light
‘Cause tonight just might be our time
Tonight just might be our time coming

Lover, got my pedal to the floor
And I’ll soon be scratching at your door
Lover, with my face against the pane
I’ll hold your hand as we both go insane

And now, in these violet hours,
A stranger to my sleep,
I want you so much
It hurts for me to breathe

One more chance is all I ask of you now, darlin’
One more chance is all I need
One more chance is all I ask of you, my love
‘Cause tonight just might be our time
Tonight just might be our time coming

Track Name: Since I Laid Eyes On You

Under your knives
I bore my skin and let you in
I loved to be the feast on which you fed
Just like a stone I fell for you
Only to have you bury me beneath your bed

I can’t shake, I can’t shake the pain

There’s no-one else for me
Since I laid eyes on you
My hands are tied

I’m up above and looking down
To the ground under which
All your victims lay
Picking my words up off the floor
Grasping for the only one
That might make you stay

There’s no-one else for me
Since I laid eyes on you
Made me the casualty
After all we’ve been through
My hands are tied

Track Name: So Divine

Tonight I’ve got my partners in crime
We’re gonna hijack time
We’re gonna raise the dead

Tonight I’m feeling more than fine
I’m feeling so divine
You know I’m seeing red

Been a long time but you showed me how it’s done
Been a long time but you finally killed your son
Chasing my time on a wild-hearted run
Chasing my time

I’m feeling so divine
In this soul of mine

Tonight I’m all wound up tight
I’ve got a war to fight
And it’s in my head

Tonight I’m strong in the light
I’ve got second sight
And my flesh is bread

Track Name: Waiting Out The Breakdown

I can’t stand what you’re doing to me
I curse the sky for mercy
And I’ll be crying forever
Until the dawn of never

I’m waiting out the breakdown
So much violence in my mind
Because you’re stealing all my time
Waiting out the breakdown

Sucked into your movie
Your damage consumed me
I’m so special in your bed
But so stupid in my head
In your dreams I haunt you
You only hate me ‘cause I want you
Your touch is an act of war
But I would crawl through fire just for one more

There’s poison in the water

Track Name: Smashdown

What you are is no matter now
Because what we want they can’t allow

We came together ‘cause we heard the call
We dance in circles as the empires fall
And when I take you in a love embrace
Don’t be afraid ‘cause you’re the one I wanna smashdown

For so long now, I’ve been waiting for
The blood to spill
‘Cause I just can’t get my fill

© 2001 Ultramad Music, LLC (ASCAP)
Track Name: Take It Out On Me

So take it out on me one more time again
(Not what you want to see, so take it out on me)

From your vibration and your gyration
You’ve got a pocketful of fire and brimstone
And now the worm turns
You feel your body burn
You ride the lightning as it shivers down your backbone

I never knew my name
’Til I became the pain
Dancing on the blade
Look what a mess we made

So take it out on me one more time again

I couldn’t have missed it
So sick and twisted
I know my enemy as well as my reflection
You saw my mask drop
I watched your heart stop
The thread I’m hanging by is blinding my direction

We’re flying blind in the rain
And while you’re crashing the plane
I’m busy looking for the sermon in the suicide
And your salvation depends on bleeding me at both ends
But I’ll see to it that your mission isn’t satisfied

So take it out me
(Crown my shadow)

Track Name: Never See Me Cry

I try to fool myself when everyone’s around
And make believe the constant panic doesn’t bring me down
Before I saw the door, you’d already locked me out
Lying and deceiving
Seems that’s all that you’re about

Try to break me off at the knees soldier
I’ve sucked in my emotions
You’re never gonna see me cry
