about

"MIDAGMUS just keeps bringing it!
Hard to believe it's only two guys making this wall of noise!

Nipping at the heels of their last album, 'GREATEST HITS' (which ironically/sarcastically is their first, full length album), MIDAGMUS once again throws us a powerful curve with 'THIS IS NOT HAPPENING'.

Comprised of a dozen, lean and mean tracks, this record delivers the goods and isn't afraid to lean heavily on some great riffage! Tunes like 'Fan the Flames','R is for Rhetoric' and 'Beg to Differ' showcase the band's ability to get political without being overly self righteous. 'Pretty Sure I Hate You', a soon to be classic, tells the tale of a relationship gone bad. 'Flaunt It' has a very cool jazzy vibe which reminded me of the time I spent MCing gentlemen's clubs in Detroit. 'Butterflies' and 'Ayatollah of Rock and Rolla' (finally somebody used this as a song title!) brings the heavy hitting punch and groove...could this be the unholy union between Soundgarden and AC/DC that we didn't know we needed? A girl can dream..."

Track Name: Embolism (Zero Hour)
Please excuse me while I lick my wounds
That was quite a shot to the head
You keep on saying that I'll be alright
But you're the one that wants me dead

All my life I've been kicked around
Never given the time of day
You wanna tell me how to live my life
Pointing fingers every step of the way

You wanna kick me
You'll never beat me
You think you’ll stop me
You won’t deny me

Your smug intentions try to crush my will
I'm more resilient then you ever thought
And now you realize this is no dream
I can't be sold 'cause I can't be bought

All I want is to be left alone
Your interference is gonna be your end
You keep on pushing every night and day
This sort of thing will never happen again

You wanna kick me
You'll never beat me
You think you’ll stop me
You won’t deny me
Track Name: Pretty Sure I Hate You
I’m a lover
I’m a fighter
I got the scars 
Baby I'm much wiser
You had me hooked
With your charming
You cut me deep
Now I'm just disarming

You did your best to keep me guessing
honey I'm so over you
You didn’t learn from the lessons
Karma's bill is long overdue

Baby, you’re crazy
Why you do the things that you do?
Honey, don't confront me
Cause I'm pretty sure I hate you!
Lady, it's a shame yeah
Evil bitch, through and through
Honey, don't confront me
Cause I'm pretty sure I hate you!

I see you fronting
With your haters
I'm looking through you
See you later
You had me hooked
With your charming
You cut me deep
Now I'm just disarming

You did your best to keep me guessing
honey I'm so over you
You didn’t learn from the lessons
Karma's bill is long overdue

Baby, you’re crazy
Why you do the things that you do?
Honey, don't confront me
Cause I'm pretty sure I hate you!
Lady, it's a shame yeah
Evil bitch, through and through
Honey, don't confront me
Cause I'm pretty sure I hate you!

Baby there’s a millions reasons
Why we can’t get along
It’s easy to see, just ask Faster P
When it boils down, dontcha stick around
Because my hate is strong

Why you do the things that you do?
Honey, don't confront me
Cause I'm pretty sure I hate you!
Lady, it's a shame yeah
Evil bitch, through and through
Honey, don't confront me
Cause I'm pretty sure I hate you!
Track Name: If You Want a War...
A lil something that you can't comprehend
Makes no difference to me
Called down the thunder thinking yours to command
I'll never let it be

I see ya shaking
You lost your cool
You're so mistaken
If you think I’m on board
I’m nobody’s fool

Who wants the war?
I’ll give you more
If you want a war,
You got it

If ya feel that my rage
Is a little out of place
You asked for war
Try and stop it /You can’t stop it

High and mighty while you put on a show
You dig your hooks into me
And while we're at there's something you should know
I'll never let it be
Track Name: Serotonin
I am your thoughts
I am your choice
I forge your dreams
I give them voice

When you are down
I pick you up
I make damn sure
You give a fuck

Inside your head
Outside your door
That’s all there is
But maybe more

When you are down
I'll pick you up
I'll make damn sure
You give a fuck

I wanna know
If you still care
I wanna see
If you're still there

When you are down
I'll pick you up
I'll make damn sure
You give a fuck

Through thick and thin
I'm by your side
Just you and me
I'll be your guide

When you are down
I'll pick you up
I'll make damn sure
You give a fuck

It's up to you
I know you know
Just lean on me
I'll help you grow

When you are down
I'll pick you up
I'll make damn sure
You give a fuck
Track Name: Fan the Flames
We must obey I heard them say
When you choose a side, you can’t look away
Whispers loud as cannons
But the voices have no names

You gotta want it, you gotta feel it in your soul
When you hear the music, it's time reach out and take control
You fuel the fire
And they’ll fan the flames

Can you feel it
Do you see it
Do you need it

It’s already here

Did you meet your maker, did it tell you things you want to hear
Was it all for nothing, hidden from the shadows you once feared
You sought redemption
Let the vultures stake their claims

Can you feel it
Do you see ii
Do you need it

It’s already here
Interlude
Track Name: Beg to Differ
We got the numbers
We got the numbers to take you
We got the power
We got the power to break you

You think you know us
You think you know us, you don’t though
You want to show us
You want to show us, we won’t go

Yeah, it’s just like that
Gonna leave you flat

Hey meet the new boss
Hey meet the new boss, just the same
Join the true cause
Join the true cause play their game

We beg to differ
We beg to differ so bend your ear
We've got a message
We've got a message you'll want to hear

Yeah, it’s just like that
Gonna leave you flat, flat, flat
oh get back!

Keep on rocking
Never stopping
Track Name: R is for Rhetoric
Give yourself a minute to listen
Take another moment to learn
Realize what you’ve been given
Is nothing close to what's being churned

You don't have to smile when they tell you
Or walk a mile in their shoes
Just step back from the ledge now (baby)
Give yourself a lifetime to chose

Learn how to talk
Before you can walk
They got that child in their eyes

Eyes that are black
No turning back
Rhetoric's on high

You think we woulda learned from the last time
Instead we just stare at our hands
Poisoned by the fruits of the liars
Blindly following all their commands

You don't have to smile when they tell you
Or walk a mile in their shoes
Just step back from the ledge now (baby)
Give yourself a lifetime to chose

Learn how to talk
Before you can walk
They got that child in their eyes

Eyes that are black
No turning back
Rhetoric's on high
Track Name: Night Giver
Thought I saw you coming once before
Just a passing glance but nothing more
Now it seems I need you
each and every day
Took away my pain
no words can say

I ain’t gonna lie, it feels so good
In your dark embrace it's understood
Can't recall where up is
But I'm not ever down
I won't face the truth
When you're around

Just a second more
just another hit
Erase me from my life,
again
Just a second more
just another hit
Bring me to the night,
within


Crippled me, with your wild desires
On a bed of ash, you feed me to the fire
Selling my soul for your love
Killing just to make you smile
Bullet to the head
You know I'm running wild

I can’t quit you even if I try
We're as thick as thieves, do or die
Promising me forever
Slowly driving me insane
Whispering all your lies
Into my brain

Just a second more
just another hit
Erase me from my life,
again
Just a second more
just another hit
Bring me to the night,
Within


Just a second more
just another hit
Erase me from my life, again
Just a second more
just another hit
Bring me to the night, within
Track Name: Ayatollah of Rock and Rolla
Every day, I'm slowly going under
Break my back for bills I can't pay
Gotta get back no use in taking cover
Searching for words to see me on my way

If life's a sickness
I need a cure
You tapped my weakness
Can't bleed me more

All we need is the Baron of Soul
the Ayatollah of Rock and Rolla!
If you shake it you just might make it
Just let the music take control
All we need is the Baron of Soul
the Ayatollah of Rock and Rolla!
If you fake it you're bound to might make it
If you wanna play the role

Take it on, the weight is overwhelming
But if I don't break it makes me fight on
Seen it all, but still you wanna tell me
Deaf to your words I'll sing my own song

If life's a sickness
I need a cure
You tapped my weakness
Can't bleed me more

All we need is the Baron of Soul
the Ayatollah of Rock and Rolla!
If you shake it you just might make it
Just let the music take control
All we need is the Baron of Soul
the Ayatollah of Rock and Rolla!
If you fake it you're bound to might make it
If you wanna play the role
Track Name: Butterflies
It's electric
I'm infected
What you're feeling
Is expected

If you're gonna run with me
You gotta want to see
That we're in this, together

Your butterflies are on fire
The flames taking me higher
Your butterflies are on fire
Butterflies
Butterflies

From our cages
We'll take stages
Recite the words
From the pages

If you're gonna run with me
You gotta want to see
That we're in this, together

Your butterflies are on fire
The flames taking me higher
Your butterflies are on fire
Butterflies
Butterflies
Track Name: Flaunt It
Hey now, check it out
I'm a gonna show you what it’s all about
Oh yeah get your groove
Roll it on over till you start to move yeah

One life take it slow
Make your body move till you can't say no
Full steam, straight ahead
If I'm a not rocking then you know I'm dead yeah

Get on up,
Don’t you wanna flaunt it
Step right up

You’re the star
Everybody wants it
Step right up
Flaunt it for me

What's with the world today
All I wanna do is catch a break
Listen up, the time is right
Rock that body all through the night

Short changed, but we don’t care
As long as I’m breathing got a song to share
Hold tight, in to win
Bless me father cause you know I’ve sinned yeah

Get on up,
Don’t you wanna flaunt it
Step right up
make a big scene
You’re the star
Everybody wants it
Step right up
Flaunt it for me
Track Name: Wabi Sabi (Angry Ape Mix)
Wabi Sabi
Give me some more!
50 dollars don’t make you a whore
A lil makeup to cover your rage
Bleeding hearts, got a needle for me

Wabi Sabi
I want more!
Sell your soul to the liquor store
100 dollars ,we upped our game
Feeling numb, there is no pain
