about

In the spring of 2004, Clairmont formed in the unsuspecting town of College Station, TX. Immediately the band became dedicated to writing a fresh and entertaining catalog of songs. Their unique sound and truthful lyrics were selected as the title track for the Esotype Records Compilation One: The Real Life Threats of You and Me. Soon after recording their first track, Clairmont began writing and producing their first album, The Dweller EP. The release in 2005 established that Clairmont would be around for awhile and would continue to write ballads for the new millennium. The band continued to play live shows in and around Texas to promote their new record and started to gain a faithful following. Their live show is one of energy and passion as the band strives to display the image their songs are about.

Clairmont just finished recording their first LP entitled Strength Like Lions under the engineering and production of The Mix Lab in College Station. This new album is a major testament to all of their trials and hard work that they have put forth over the last four years.

Track Name: Breathing In
It's like breathing in the air.
I didn't come for your wealth.
No, I came for your heart
And the words I have for you
Could tear you apart.

So don't close your eyes
And don't turn away.
Cause the answer's been on its way.

It's been on its way.
Track Name: Leslie
This is where it starts
So pick up here and go far
For traveling, no wandering.
Which way to go
A sign will tell you, then know
His love will help you get by.

This is the dance, the way we move tonight

A chance to see what’s beyond the bend
A chance to see the other side

Leads to everything calling out
To everything that’s calling out.

This is the road to mark so we can get lost
This is the road to mark so we can go far.

This is the dance, the way we move tonight

You know, you know you’re not the only one.
Drive on, drive on to the setting sun.
Take me, take me

One day you will understand
Forgetting the bias in us all.
And one day we will understand
Yeah we'll burn our hearts down
Yeah we'll burn this part down
And be refined as gold.

This is the dance, the way we move tonight

And still we may not go
As if we're ever gone

But we drive, try, make, and take
I don’t have it all, the answers I don’t know.
Track Name: A Thousand Casts
I've been marching all night to the sound of a beating drum
And it has taken over me faster than I can breathe
But it's much too late for an escape.

You know that it's starting to feel like home

It's dark, this night, as the TV lights up your floor
And watch as it creeps right out your door
It lights up your room, this empty room

You know that it's starting to feel like home

Because of what you say
Oh what's the meaning
And what I say
What is the meaning

Cause its a parking lot
It's so full of cracks
We will take these words
And we'll mend like that
Track Name: Quiet Prophets I
Softly you speak the words for the one to hear,
But it’s not like me to be the one who is outspoken.
Cause it’s like me to be the one to not say anything at all.

But in light of this one and in light of this son
Oh in light of this time and in light of this war.
Track Name: The Call
Give me a second and I'll let you in
Give me a sign and let me know that you care
It's cold, but it's summer time
I'ts not but here it goes again.

The waves will come in and take away
The signs will be here all night long
There won't be a second chance
You can't get a second chance
So don't get caught up in this.
We get caught up in this.

Now we can talk about this all night long
But we might not get anywhere.
It's not what we came here for
But it is what we are fighting for.

The waves will come in and take away
The signs will be here all night long
There won't be a second chance
You can't get a second chance
So don't get caught up in this.
We get caught up in this.

This is the way it seems
Being caught up in the webs they leave
Just the way it seems

This is the way it seems
Being caught up in the webs they leave
In the cracks
the darkness sets
Where the cold resides
Or am I used to it

We can talk about this all night long
But we might not get anywhere
Give me a second and I'll let you in
Give me a sign and let me know that you care
I should of told you this was not pretend
It's like I'm married to this desease
Just a call is what I'm waiting for

You know that the way is my own
Not the way of others
So take every part of me
And carve away
Watch the weight sink in
Track Name: Dear to the One
Dear to the one who will make it this far
I liked the breeze and the feel of night time
So come, come with me take a sigh of relief
This could well be, be our last.
Now that we have gone to farthest lengths
You’ll soon forget what you’ve seen in time.
Here in the silence
Let go of the least, and take my case.

And will you remember me when you get back (when you get back someday)
In light of my own tragedy?
Who? Well I ask who am I - well then who am I this?
In my own tragedy.

Tell me why it's hard to breathe
When the only thing around is air?
Tell me why is it hard for this heart to beat
When it’s the only thing this heart is wanting.

And will you remember me when you get back
In light of my own tragedy?
Who? Well I ask who am I - well then who am I this?
In my own tragedy.

Well then who am I in this?

And will you remember me when you get back (when you get back someday)
In light of my own tragedy?
You were the only one who would listen
In my own tragedy.
Track Name: Taste Of Iron
When I was out you lifted your hands up to the air
And changed my skies
And you taught me how.
But have I come so far to just lose so much
Well have I given up? (no I won’t give up)
Will I ever learn?

To make a choice to be fully confident
But it can just turn out to be another one of those things.
Have we talked too much, have we learned too much?
Will we ever learn?

And I get away only in your voice
But to be what you say, what is it to be everything
But I still get away only in your voice.

To make a choice to be fully confident
But it can just turn out to be another one of those things
Have we talked too much and have we touched too much?
Will we ever learn?

And I get away only in your voice,
But to be what you say, what is it to be everything
But I still get away.

With strength like a lion
And words of a liar
Who leaves nothing to be
Tries to steal me away.

He'll never leave you in the cold.
Track Name: Our Fight
As I fight my fight will you fight your fight?
Will you be there still in the place I call home?
Now there’s a broken candlelight and the creepy silent night.
Oh does that scare you?

But don’t forget about the stars in our sky
And the coals in our fire
How they burn red.

Oh la la la la la.

So will you take my hand and hold it tight?
And will you take my flame and hold it high with you?
When the boat is ready, we’ll leave in the morning.

Oh la la la la la la.
Track Name: Meaningless Entanglement
She finds comfort in all these things
Searching for all that comfort brings.
Where she opens up her heart to take it all apart
Only to fall asleep at night, never making it right.
We could count our fingers for all these things
And that won’t bring us, not a single thing.

And it waits for you now.

Breaks you down
And it takes you down
Will we ever understand
What we put our hearts through
With this meaningless entanglement?

Why so blind, is it that hard to see?
How wrapped up in this you don’t claim to be
Tell me why here, why now?
All this stuff all on the floor, well it has been here for a while.

It's time to break free.

Breaks you down
And it takes you down
Will we ever understand
What we put our hearts through
With this meaningless entanglement?

Hold

You call it love
Well I call it nothing

Will we ever understand
What we put our hearts through
With this meaningless entanglement?
Track Name: Here's To September
We are like salt on the Earth
Thousands of voices in my head
How they whisper to this.

I'll take all the time to clear a line
I find it fleeting
If my hearts not in it.

Just a soft word that is said
Beats the many words that
Have yet to appear.

And so thousands of voices in my head
How they whisper to this.

But confidence is fleeting
if your hearts not in it.

But when the time comes
To you you'll see.
Will you get out of bed
Or still be a sleep.

I won’t fear cause there’s enough for me
That’s just what I see
That’s good enough for me

And since the first verse that was said.
There’s been no accomplishment that can get you in
And to the last words on this Earth
They don’t belong to me.
That's just what I see.

And so thousands of voices in my head
How they whisper to this.

But confidence is fleeting
if your hearts not in it.

And to the sound a heart makes
when it aches.

And so this is where I leave it in your hands
Just where I leave it in your hands.
Track Name: Last Words
It’s the unannounced
Coming out of a broken heart
And to make it beat again
It's the world’s sound
It’s the constant now
So that you can just come right in
And change its beat again.

I know you and you know me
Time moves fast it's plain to see
So let’s not tear it down let’s mix it up
Let’s not tear it down let’s just mix it up

I love you and you love me
And I need that it’s plain to see
So let’s not tear it down let’s mix it up.
Let’s not tear it down let’s just mix it up

I had a chance, Oh what a chance
But I lost it all, how I lost it all
So let’s not tear it down lets mix it up.

Why don’t you believe me, why don’t you?
Come on and believe me, why don't you?
Because you said the words to me
They were so hard to cover up.
Blame it on me
Go ahead and blame it on me.

Will it ever come up again?
Well have I missed my chance?
Will it ever come up again?

If you have it in you then sing.

But I’ll take the last words
And I fall well I fall
But I take what I want
And what I want is what I want
And you know that it's your will.
