about

'Crux' is the second full-length album by Long Island, New York's Moon Tooth.

This is the band's follow up to 2016's critically-acclaimed 'Chromaparagon.'

Moon Tooth worked with Lamb of God's Mark Morton & record producer Machine on the preproduction for 'Crux.'

The word “Crux” is defined as the “decisive or most difficult point of an issue.” The album ‘Crux’ tells the story of the band at this crucial point: where the past must die so new life can begin.

Track Name: Trust
This can’t go on

If you saw the ghosts I see
When I sleep you’d leave too
Yeah you’d claw your way out
You’d grow fangs
You’d bite, you’d rip
You’d tear your way gone
Been too long
There’s no warmth
Feel no pulse
There’s nothing left for me here
So let me go
Let me go

If you saw
What I’ve seen
You’d know what I mean
If you believe in more
Then baby believe me
More is real, you aint crazy
Don’t sleep on that dream

This can’t go on

I felt it well up
The wrath in my blood
Been a ghost of a friend, brother, son
Watched her go
The only girl that I’ve ever loved
Heard the call, gave it all
Now you’re telling me
I gotta wait here
Yeah there’s nothing left for me here
So let me go

This can’t go on
Track Name: Omega Days
Goddamned
Be the name’s praise
When the game’s set
Invalid alphas, they cant
Hold our gaze

For the word
For the song
For the long road home
Behold your true King
Know Us by Our scars
Know Us by the false god’s
Tattered flesh
That’s in Our jaws

Come all ye wolves
Of risk and thrill
And stand
We come to set ablaze
The omega days

For the word
For the song
For the long road home

Behold your true King
Know Us by Our scars
Know Us by the false god’s
Tattered flesh
That’s in Our jaws
As the earth quakes
As the lion wakes
So We come
Bend the knee
Beg for amnesty
Vermin, you’ll get none

We come by mirth of soul
We come by a joyous ocean
Yeah
Woe to the knave
Who halts us
Woe to that sad, sorry soul
Track Name: Awe At All Angles
I am not adornments
Joined on new walls
I am torn muscle
I am budding bruise
The good pain
While the deeper hurt
Are these truths
I am not a bridge
No I am not two ends
Not two ends that meet to make one

I am white water
I am awe at all angles

oh, I am not held hands
I’m not making plans
No, I’m not your man
I’m a goddamn conduit
Girl, I’m piss and vinegar

I am white water
I am awe at all angles
Awe at all angles

Courting over dinner
And a bottle of wine
I said “You look real pretty
And your haircut’s nice”
For christ’s sake
This is not living
It's killing time
My body’s in the cage
But I’m in the sky
