about

Pyrolysis Zaltbommel, Netherlands

Barefooted and using purely acoustic instruments, Pyrolysis breathes the raw, natural chaos of life into
music. With a leading role for nostalgic melodies, they play stormingly fast-paced and energetic songs
perfect for any tavern brawl, but also some darker ballads that reek of rainy days.

Track Name: The Pace
I woke up in the night and the sirens were screaming
I shouldn't be dreaming; the day is in sight.
It's the pace of this world that is bursting around me,
it's leaving me breathless to reach for the light.

For the sun has been missing, the hours are dark
We're lost in the tempest and all out of spark
The storm rages on but we still find no port
Now daylight is fading and the nights are too short

Is it true what they say that the future is failing,
the paths we are trailing will lead us to black?
I must work through the night that is falling around me,
Must keep fires a’blazing and salvage this wreck
Track Name: Grips
A fool's eye, bullseye, greed is on my breath
My pain is not my problem, I'll deal with it in death
The hands of golden promises came knocking at my door
I was lifted up from underneath and dragged into a war

It grips me – my body and my soul
It grips me – puts flames into my skull

Scorching, searing, escaping through my teeth
My essence now connected to obsessions from beneath
Only fools and dogs and lunatics have walked this way before
I cast my common sense aside and leave it on the shore

Piercing, preaching, I hear it and and I cry
While the reaper's burning breath is feeding frenzy from the sky
My bones turn into ashes while I'm hunting for the vault
I can feel it while I ride into the blazing wind and salt

It grips me – my body and my soul
It grips me – puts flames into my skull
Track Name: Donald MacGillavry
Donald's gone up the hill hard and hungry,
Donald's come down the hill wild and angry;
Donald will clear the gouk's nest cleverly,
Here's to the king and Donald McGillavry.
Come like a weighbauk, Donald McGillavry,
Come like a weighbauk, Donald McGillavry,
Balance them fair, and balance them cleverly:
Off with the counterfeit, Donald McGillavry.

Donald's come o'er the hill but his tether, man,
As he were mad, or stang'd wi' an ether, man;
When he comes back, there's some will look merrily:
Here's to the king and to Donald McGillavry.
Come like a weaver, Donald McGillavry,
Come like a weaver, Donald McGillavry,
Pack on your back, and elwand sae cleverly;
Up with King James and Donald McGillavry.

Donald's the callan that brooks nae tangleness;
Whigging and prigging and a'newfangleness,
They maun be gane: he winna be baukit, man:
He will have justice, or faith he'll take it, man.
Come like a cobler, Donald McGillavry,
Come like a cobler, Donald McGillavry;
Push about and in and out, thimble them cleverly,
Up with King James and Donald McGillavry.

Donald has foughten with rief and roguery;
Donald had dinner with banes and beggary,
So better it were for Whigs and Whiggery
Meeting the devil than Donald McGillavry.
Come like the devil, Donald McGillavry,
Come like the devil, Donald McGillavry,
Skelp them and scaud them that proved them unbritherly,
Up with King James and Donald McGillavry.
Track Name: Heavy Shoulders
I woke up this morning,
the sun was raging high,
my memories were a bit blurry

The face in the mirror,
its eyes they showed no life,
its frown would put mothers to worry

And suddenly I realise
that I am the one to blame,
If I could do this again
would I still be the same?

So I want to know where I came from
I want to know where I was born
Deliver me from my pain now
Release me from this...

The choice is mine to walk towards the light,
but this maze feeds me too many fakes
I used to think this life was much too broken for its fix,
so I laughed away all its mistakes.
But this makeshift answer can’t sound the demand,
it is only bringing me pain
If I could do this again would I still be the same?

The storm in the future
and the greys of the day
make rhythms that drain me inside

I fear my path is chosen,
a cycle with no start
that tells me my fire has died

But I’m done ignoring the colour within
I don’t want to play this game
If I could do this again
Would I still be the same

So I want to know where I came from
I want to know where I was born
Deliver me from my pain now
Release me from this... thorn
Track Name: Never Fade
I see the face the sky has made
I pray that it will never fade
I see your tears, they shine up high
But I'm not ready for the stars to die

Looking up into the blue
And I see what remains of you
Dust and candles hurt my eyes
They burn my spirit from the skies

And still I cannot look away
I cannot face the coming day
Where every glow might cease to be
And you'll forever be lost to me

So I will beg and I will sing
I will not suffer, I will cling
To the radiance that holds your name
The final remnants of my flame

Take my voice and take my song
It's all I have, for I'm not strong
enough to walk this world alone
Your beacon high has left me prone
Track Name: This is How
Sinking down into the caverns of the whales
On never trodden trails
There's one way left to dive
I've seen lights go out a million times before
But now I feel the roar
and the darkness of the hive

I am swallowed by the tunnels of the earth
So let's count on what I'm worth and hope that I'll survive

A sight of burning desolation hurts my eyes
This should be my demise
But I'm gasping at the gate
All the arrows want me sleeping at the stake
But I feel like I'm awake
My pain will have to wait

So I will walk through the tunnels of the earth
I'll be all that I'm worth I know that I'll survive

For I found my own way into the fire
And I'm still alive!

Now to take the hand of death out of the blight
And straight into the light
Where we can have a dance
Spin it 'round to be forgiven for my crime
Of being here before my time
I'm hoping for a chance

To be spat back through the tunnels of the earth
To be all that I'm worth
To wake when I've survived
To find my own way out of the fire

I'm alive
I have found the darkest little room
In an hourglass beneath the dripping gloom
I'm still alive
I have seen my fate right from the start
But I still feel the fire in my heart
I'm still alive
I will take the light of all the stars
And shine it on my path beyond the bars
I'm still alive
I have years before this prison becomes home
So I go up to find my place to roam
Track Name: Captain Cray
There's gunpowder in his left eyeball
Sparks and laughter, free for all
He's crackling mad, but what a blast
when sadness for no minute lasts!

There's a dragon in his chest
It roars and grins, gives no man rest
It pulls the devil on by its tail
and drags the wind into our sails!

“Drive me insane, I want to feel madness”
– All the way, to hell we'll row
“Feed me salt and bring me thunder”
– All the way, to hell we'll row
“Ride the storm and hunt the Kraken”
– All the way, to hell we'll row
“Drive me insane, I want to feel madness!”
– All the way, to hell we'll row

His brow is naught but scars and patches
and his coat is filled with matches
This ship will be the death of me
but not before he rules the sea!

His shoes are worn, he's skin and bone
He sleeps and shivers when he's alone
but when that pace of life returns
He dances a jig and the fire burns!
Track Name: Witch Hunt
Shudder in my blackest eyes
And lend an ear to crooked cries
Douse the flame that burns your prey
A witch I am, a witch I'll stay
Track Name: The Pilgrim
I took the road into the night,
I watched the day grow old
I have no strength for one more fight,
I’ll sink in waters cold

Shed no tears for what is lost,
I have not walked alone
I'll gladly pay this cost
to see how you have grown

I throw my stones into the sea,
Watch the water win,
All the anger leaving me,
All I was is sin

But you said everything’s alright
An eternal vow
And as I breathe my final night
I am ready now

Kneel before the ocean,
Surrender to the waves
Count a star in the Pilgrim’s eyes
For every life she saves
Track Name: Rainy Road
I will blow out in this final storm
And I will be taken by the flood
For I will walk the dripping path
And I will wither where I roam

And down the rainy road we wash ourselves away

The whispers sing me a melody
The rhythms show me a world of grey
Shades on the cobblestones
Lead my old self astray
