about

TOMKAT's debut LP is nine songs of swirling guitar pop tones over bass heavy R&B grooves. Covering a realm of lyrical topics stretching from ancient myths to current heartbreaks, 'Icarus' promises to expand upon the precedent set by 'Big Love', TOMKAT's 2015 EP. Thank you for supporting independent music!

Track Name: Icarus
Fire in the morning sky,
Shining down my prison walls.
If I could leave I would get by,
Feathered wax won’t let me fall.

Heaven, what a maze I’m in,
Must get off this rock I’m on.
My father told me I could fly,
But feathered wax won’t last too long.

And so I dream of it,
Lift my body to the sky.
They warned me not to get too close,
Feathered wax won’t let me fly.

What if I fly?
And if I fly too high…
What if I fly?
And if I fly,
What if I fall?

Fire in the morning sky,
Shining down my prison walls.
Track Name: Teardrops
I’ve been flying so high,
I’ve been falling to hell.
What they see is a lie
But I hide it so well.

Never gave me your time,
Turned your back when I fell.
What they see is a smile
Cause I hide it so well.

I fall a million times,
I look up to the sky,
And oh that rain like
Teardrops on my mind.

I fall a million times,
I look up to the sky
And oh that rain like
Teardrops on my mind.

Cause I’m riding so high
When I’m running from home.
Leave the screaming behind
All those things hid below.

I fall a million times,
I look up to the sky,
And oh that rain like
Teardrops on my mind.
Track Name: Stay
Stay

You came through like crashing waves,
I came down like salt and spray.
We could never understand,
Now we hold explosions in our hands.

And I don’t wanna Stay.

We never had a chance
You beat me down and tied my hands
Now I have to walk away
From you, coming down like crashing waves.

And I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna Stay.

You come back for me again
And you stab me in the back.
Now we will never understand
And we hold explosions in our hands.

And I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna
I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna Stay.
Track Name: Drowning
Fine lines in your face say it all,
You shut your eyes, just to watch me fall.
Got my demons that I’m wrestling.
Give my all just to give it all in.


And ooh, I think it’s too late
Don’t worry ‘bout me, I will never save face
And ooh, I think it’s the end,
Head’s underwater and I’m Drowning, Drowning.


Hear the voices filtering in,
I block the sound, scream as loud as I can.
Don’t blink, just become a machine.
You can’t die if you’re still feeling.


And ooh, I think it’s too late
Don’t worry ‘bout me, I will never save face
And ooh, I think I’ll head home.
Head’s underwater and I’m alone.

And ooh I think it’s too late,
Don’t worry ‘bout me I will never save face,
And ooh, I think it’s the end
Head’s underwater and I’m Drowning, Drowning


Maybe I’ll try it all again,
The feeling won’t stop whispering.
I’ll see your face just before I rise,
Buy my time, I will never die.


And ooh, I think it’s too late
Don’t worry ‘bout me, I will never save face
And ooh, I think I’ll head home.
Head’s underwater and I’m alone.

And ooh I think it’s too late,
Don’t worry ‘bout me I will never save face,
And ooh, I think it’s the end
Head’s underwater and I’m Drowning, Drowning, Drowning, Drowning, Drowning…
Track Name: Ties
I didn’t want to leave you,
I didn’t want you to leave.
I didn’t want to need you,
Found myself with all the grief.


Break away, cut the Ties,
In the crowd your face is just a passerby.


I said I’d wait forever,
But you just take your time.
As I sit here thinking,
You’re always on my mind

Break away, cut the Ties,
In the crowd your face is just a passerby
Break away, cut the Ties,
In the crowd your face is just a passerby.

Break away, break away, break away, break away…

Break away, cut the Ties,
In the crowd your face is just a passerby.
Track Name: Persephone
You were born a goddess heir
Heaven and Earth could not compare.
I knew that I had to make you mine.

Feet that dance like rain in spring
Across my heart, I’ll be your king
And you’ll be safe, my darling I’ll be kind.


Persephone,
Come to me.
Persephone,
Say you love me!


In the night I come for you,
Chariots and steeds of blue,
I knew that we had to run and hide.

Down where only Death can go,
Styx and souls, the river flows.
And you’ll be safe, for you will be my bride.


Persephone,
Come to me.
Persephone,
Say you love me, oh!
Say you love, Say you love me!


Sweetheart, I can’t let you go.
Your home is here with me below.
And if your mother calls for you,
Come back to me, Persephone.

Say you love, Say you love me!
Say you love me!
Track Name: Human
Now I show what’s underneath.
Do I feel? And do I breathe?
And it’s all a little hazy, a little grey.
And all the lights go out and the colors fade.

I can make them shine all on my own.
Turn the colors up and let them show.
And I need this all to prove I’m still alive,
To prove this life is not a test this time.


If I fall down will it break me,
Will I bend or bleed?
Am I Human?


I won’t wear your mask, I won’t bear your chain.
I may have no heart, but I’m not your game.
And I’ll smile for you while you have your fun,
But leave you in your cage when I run


If I fall down, will this break me?
Will I bend or bleed?
Human? Human.


Shed my skin,
Second soul,
Learn to hide it all below.


Human, Human, Human Human….
Track Name: Pompeii
They said, the Walls were coming down.
They said, Walls were coming down.
It shook the sky, it spit a fire red.
It shook the sky, coming down, they said.


And I stayed, and I stood, and I did not hide,
I closed my eyes.


They ran, the Walls were coming down.
They ran, Walls were coming down.
It burned the Earth and all we had.
It burned coming down, they ran.


And I stayed, and I stood, and I did not hide,
I closed my eyes.
And I stayed, and I stood, and I did not hide,
I closed my eyes.
Track Name: Phoenix
He said, “You got a lot of nerve,
Don’t walk away, girl, ain’t your turn.”
He said I got a lot to learn,
But I know what I deserve.

Heroes seem to have it all, but there’s still room to fall.


Once and for all, I rise.
Once and for all, I fly.
Once and for all.


He said I got a lot to say,
But I don’t listen anyway.
His pedestal is overturned,
Oh, it’s more than he deserves.

Angels always have to fall and Hell can have them all.


Once and for all, I rise.
Once and for all, I fly.
I’ll end it all, I’ll get mine.
Once and for all, I rise.
Once and for all.


I will rise from the flame,
Like a Phoenix hurricane.
I’ll feel it all, I’ll end it all, you’ll feel it all.

Once and for all, I rise
Once and for all, I fly.
I’ll end it all, oh, I’ll get mine,
Once and for all, I rise,
Once and for all.

Once and for all, once and for all, once and for all, once and for all.
