about

Combining an industrial sound with synthpop influences for an aggressive electroclash result, OHE's freshman EP, "Not With A Bang," is the result of a couple years of effort following a shift in musical direction on the part of the project's founder.

Track Name: Breathe
Verse 1

Open up
So everyone can see
Why stay closed
When all you want to be is

Here, now
All we want is ever changing
Don’t know how
It’s gonna be obtained

Fear so strong
It keeps us locked inside our cages
Shame so wrong
It’s filling us with stains

Pre-Chorus

All we ever need
Is room enough to breath
And maybe just a
Little bit of satisfaction

Why
Stay waiting there to seethe
While hoping to believe
That all your hopes and
All your screams could cause reaction

Chorus

Don’t fight the pain in sight
Fight the pain that deadens you
Don’t look for things to hide
Find the pleasure, steady through

We’re wasting away
No time for today
Another search for ecstasy in you

Another search for ecstasy in you

Verse 2

Brush it off
Let it leave your mind
Dwell for years
When you’re groveling for time

Day by day
All we want is ever leaving
Night by night
It never seems to stay

Just forget the
Pain that leaves you feeling empty
Focus on the
Pleasure that can make you feel ok

Pre-Chorus

Chorus

Bridge

Another expectation of the way it’s got to go
Just let it go, just let it go
And they can never take away the feelings that you hold
Just let it go, just let it go

Chorus
Track Name: Fall Apart
Verse 1

On closer inspection
Of my little world
It seems a projection
Begins to shine ‘round me

So void of infection
As clear as a pearl
And yet our reflection
Warps in ways unseen

Chorus 1

We fly across the sky
We’ve never felt so high
Yet we fall, fall apart

And time
Time will pass us by
Just know we’ll never die
Simply fall, fall apart

Verse 2

Let the wind take you to me
Let the air take you home
And when you see right through me
Know that I can see through you too

Always there to renew me
Never lonely to roam
Yet you start to pursue me
And I know that I’ll bid adieu

Chorus 2

We fly across the sky
We’ve never felt so high
Till we fall, fall apart

And time
Time will pass us by
And yet we never die
Simply fall, fall apart

Chorus 3

And I sigh
As we fly across the sky
We’ve never felt so high
Still we fall, fall apart

And time
Time will pass us by
And still we never die
Simply fall, fall apart

Simply fall, fall apart
Track Name: Come
Verse 1

Roll your eyes
When you hear my name
Someone to scoff about
Someone to blame

Now we're close
Hear my voice
Face to face
You're left with a choice

Chorus

Come
Submit to me
I can give you all you see now
Come
Submit to me
Choose to obey
Stop
Don't turn away
I can see you try to pray so
Dumb
Submit to me
Shackled let your fantasies take sway

Verse 2

Feel my words
Against your ear
See my thoughts
Begin to appear

Who said love
Was a thing to desire
Put passions first
And let the old us burn in the fire

Chorus
Track Name: Deceptive Heart
Verse 1

You try your best to take advantage of me
You try your best to change me
I fill myself with insecurity
And you, all you do is hate me

Chorus 1

Maybe it's narcissistic, maybe it's not correct
Maybe my own self-hatred is why I cannot self reflect
But all I know is that from the start
That all you give is a deceptive heart

Verse 2

Self was all I had before you happened to me
Touch was everything you gave us
You never seemed to be this broken machine
You always seemed so hateless

I was desperate for you, you knew that I was all alone
You were baiting me too, you knew that I was skin and bone
All your flaws went away whenever it worked for you
My self hate reappears whenever you want it to

Bridge

Suddenly I get the feeling I had from the start
Everything we ever shared begins to fall apart
How can I love you when I'm not who I have to be
How can you love anything with your deceptive heart

With your deceptive heart

Your deceptive heart x4

Chorus 2

Maybe it's narcissistic, maybe it's not correct
Maybe my own self-hatred is why you think I have no self respect
But all I know is that from the start
That all you give is a deceptive heart
Track Name: Being You
Verse 1

Fear

I cannot let go
Feelings come so slow
I wish that I could show you something
Something you don't know

Sear

Burning in my skin
Something from within
Maybe it's my sin
How did it sink so low

Chorus

Don't wanna see you
I just wanna make my self correct
I don't wanna feel your warm caress
'Till I feel my heart inside your chest and
I Wanna be you
I don't wanna hold on to regret

Sometimes this fantasy's the only other thing that's left for me

And she tries to make her way outside

She is out of places she can hide

Verse 2

Shame

Just apologize
Help sustain my lies
Open up my ever watching jury from inside

Frame

Try to break it down
Try to make a sound
But I just lay down
Nothing but failure in my eyes

Bridge

And I really can't help it

Why can't I just make this go away

And I really can't help it

Why can't I just make myself okay

And I really can't help it
(but it doesn't make a difference if I could)

Why did you let me feel my lies?

And I really can't help it
(but it doesn't make a difference if I could)

Maybe it's time I realize

Chorus

Breakdown

I can't make it go away
