Since forming, Oaths have given life to a set of songs packed with passion, emotion and urgent excitement portrayed through a mix of heavy vocals and melodic singing.

Track Name: Something Better
Solitude, an illusion
I conjured up to comfort myself
Why should I stand here and waste away?
I've had enough of living in the decay
Will something better come to me?
Running around and around in my head
A question remains - am I better off dead?

Don't just accept that
this is the way it is
You have a way out
Take the step beyond

We built this up to burn it down
Fall from such heights, now watch us drown

Reach out and take it with both hands
You never know if you'll get another chance

Approaching the end
I see the light in front of me
Slowly fading out

We built this up to burn it down
Fall from such heights, now watch us drown
We always said forever, we always lied
And I always said 'never’, at least I tried

You wanna see where we go from here?
Choose your path, dig your grave
Track Name: Smoke & Whiskey
Charlotte and Steph were teachers
And they taught me a thing or two
About living life the right wrong way
And the things we shouldn't do
Well I guess they were kind of cute
They'd have to do
All curly hair and glasses
And butterfly tattoos

Let's get this party started
'cause I'm afraid
Of what might happen
When it stops
I don't want to be alone
But I don't want to be with you
I know it's confusing darling
It scares the hell out of me too

So, what do you say?
Come home with me?
We'll scratch that surface to the bone

For a while every blonde in black looked like you
For a while I thought I was okay and I'd pull through

I don't want to be alone
But I don't want to be with you
I know it's confusing darling
It scares the hell out of me too

Fuck this town
Lets burn it down
We're all so proud
Now watch us drown

For a while every blonde in black looked like you
For a while I thought I was okay and I'd pull through

Let's get this party started
'cause I'm afraid
Of what might happen
When it stops

Let's get this party started
'cause I'm afraid
Of what might happen
When it stops

For a while every blonde in black looked like you
For a while I thought I was okay and I'd pull through

We are friends, although no longer lover's
Is that so wrong? We don’t play well with other's
We are friends, although no longer lover's
Is that so wrong? We don’t play well with other's
We don't play well with other's
We don't play well with other's
