about

Minnesota's Coeus the Boxing Titan is a musical deity that descended from the clouds back in 2008, as a way for sole member and songwriter Aro to vent pent-up emotion and punch holes in the fabric of modern rock. Combining his own takes on several genres, Coeus takes enormous influence from progressive, psychadelic, and industrial rock; artists like John Frusciante, Pink Floyd, Queens of the Stone Age, Primus, Beck, Mike Patton, and King Crimson. There are many undercurrents that help make the style distinct; downtempo and hip-hop music were a huge inspiration, as well as funk, noise rock and electronica. Few things had touched him as invasively as music had, as far as he knew! Aro began listening to and creating music obsessively in his free time, branching out into dozens of different genres. His music didn't get any less obsessive and disorder-driven, which brings the world "The Boxing Titan Spawns"... introspective music that freakin' rocks!

Track Name: Tension In Cloudland
-chorus-
marching armies of these fallen angels
our rebellion ended in cloudland
when it's perfect, violence has purpose
paradise begins, with hell in heaven

-verse1-
bags of deceit
cloud around sunken eyes
forget meadows
we soar distorted skies

no blame, life came
as some sort of surprise
the torture's worse,
just no pistols or knives

those who revolt
became unchained demons
left these gardens
as martyrs for heathens

I stand free in
this endless wilderness
and though I'll cope
I'd hoped it'd have hurt less

-chorus-
marching armies of these fallen angels
our rebellion ended in cloudland
when it's perfect, violence has purpose
paradise begins, with hell in heaven

-verse2-
there's no sword for
all those demons I keep
no gold halos
just sell angels that sleep

battlefield earth
the idea's the fight
it's will, not pills
that helps us out at night

count scars like stars
believe in these real ones
violence at least
expresses some feeling

unless all this
persistence is worth it
nothing's for sure
witnessed the worst of it

-chorus-
marching armies of these fallen angels
our rebellion ended in cloudland
when it's perfect, violence has purpose
paradise begins, with hell in heaven

-outro-
let's say life's a game
world's without tied ends
can't be so bitter
when we can't repent

the biggest dice roll
in all history
that's why our bible's
such a bore to read
Track Name: Two
-verse1-
had these pills withheld
for two weeks now
need to be happy
but can't recall how

even that angel up
on my shelf, it
can't keep me floating
when I'm so selfish

still lay orange orchids
over your grave
lost soul in colors
of infinite shades

like how a black eye
led me astray
a high green sky in
hidden yesterdays

-chorus-
two months of silence
had grown far too stale
though I forgot how to
let go and inhale

two weeks pass now with
few minutes I'd kill
pass fleeting happiness
chasing a treadmill

-verse2-
with two crippled minds
in worn out hands
been swimming in sweat
with mouthfuls of sand

let them slip and fall
in this ocean
I wish every dose
had felt this potent

flooding new graveyards
piercing red hearts
I'll relive each end
beginning to start

hostile cannibals
who mark our charts
poking at this flesh
'til we're torn apart

breaking every bone
their dream-like screams
louder than thunder
metallic lightning

believe you're sleeping
they'd pay no mind
your eyes pried open
the entire time

-verse3-
two would grow old with
diseases they've caught
let these yellowed bones
burn those cold thoughts

a psycho, saint and
child drink beer
reflected inside
this bathroom mirror

golden aura shines
though retinas sweat
you colored my nights
so never forget

this casket's indent
I swore I'd mend
trashing old pieces
and bruising loose ends

before the grey smoke
escaped red lips
her violet eyes
would beg for a kiss

beyond two decades
I've passed each test
the brain decays
in love nonetheless

-chorus-
two years of silence
had grown far too stale
though I forgot how to
let go and inhale

two months pass now with
few minutes to kill
pass fleeting happiness
chasing a treadmill

hearing your name's still
more intense than hell
I buried those feelings
deep beneath two pills

-outro-
again I'd catch the blues
refuse to let memories
fade and die

flowers I'd bring for you
each time I see those two
aqua eyes

watch me throw you away
let it persist, witness
more grey skies

I can't tell night from day
today I forgave and
learned to love white lies

to my surprise

we're just too blind

two of a kind
Track Name: Like Vegas
-verse1-
love so stiff
hug or kiss
shove and fist
been through this

romantics
dizziness
semantics
like Vegas

we've taken the chance before
on Nevada's earthquake
mistaken the luck for more
when it's over we'll wake

maybe we all should push, bend, shove and
make mistakes
c'mon babe let's pretend it's love and
procreate

-chorus-
this is who you said you were
this is who I thought I was
this was you before I hurt
this is us, after love

this is who you said you were
this is who I thought I was
this was you before I hurt
this is us, after love

-verse2-
bet it all
on the risk
cards been flipped
relationship

thought we'd miss
a full house
live with this
awful doubt

taken two three four detours
keeping pace
choking on smoke indoors
while we wait

am I'm hiding the real me? well, girl
that's for me to decide
but don't ya dare doubt hell until ya
come along for the ride

-chorus-
this is who you said you were
this is who I thought I was
this was you before I hurt
this is us, after love

this is who you said you were
this is who I thought I was
this was you before I hurt
this is us, after love

-verse3-
leaving this bone machine
ancient flesh has been picked clean
enter this lone man's dream
noone here but you and me

lies elope, colored wheels
tossed outside these fields of steel
kaleidoscope, so unreal
lost in how you made me feel

-bridge-
further we tread
life gets harder
over my head
desert's daughter

safe skyscrapers
fade with distance
same landscaped words
you should listen

-outro-
I've always known why
we'd never be saved
I held your hand tight
as sand wept in waves

our beautiful city
once bought magic eyes
your solemn blue glow
brought the daylight sky

but I watched you wince
from the dunes came our fate
those dust storms rolled in
barely made out your shape

I refused to let go
of your tanned silhouette
because what
happened
here
will stay
here
I
swear
dear
Track Name: This Time
-verse1-
take a quick gaze at
this simple wrist watch
boring and normal
your typical clock

possessed second hand
it's born as your third
every hour turns to
a regressive curse

aggression
obsession
thought I'd learned
my lesson

was wasting
life thinking
now wasted
while drinking

say I'm done with you
this time
say I'm over you
this time

I'm done with you
this time
I'm over you
this time

-chorus-
addiction is
a turning page
give it more time
enjoy the chase

self control is
a losing race
aging hourglass
that stays in place

-verse2-
I can't help but to
remember it's odd
as numbers burn green
on a year old clock

I need no reason
to even go sleep
I feel too old now
counting all these sheep

minutes in
this instance
wearing wool
wolves sent in

once content
with intent
stop right past
the present

say I'm done with it
this time
say I'm over it
this time

I'm done with it
this time
I'm over it
this time

-chorus-
addiction is
a turning page
give it more time
enjoy the chase

self control is
a losing race
aging hourglass
that stays in place

-outro-
in our future
we've descended
had heaven been
open ended?

try rewinding
infinity
death do we part
had meant nothing

is old age
a new phase?
is real world
a new phrase?

clock ticking
sand sinking
it's so damn
sickening

no regrets
like last time
I'd forget
in time
I'll forget
this time
I'll forget
this time
Track Name: God's In a Lab In California
-verse1-
God's in a lab in
California
after your perfect
soulless persona

can't be high enough
to maintain a smile
colder than normal
keep them fake nails filed

feel an instant urge
to head westward and prove
never'd let your past
ever bother you

forgot the sore eyes
and that constant ache
how you couldn't sleep
gunshots kept us awake

-chorus-
drunken fights in dim streetlights
our California nights
despite all these nightly highs
pieces of the dream die

drunken fights in dim streetlights
our California nights
despite all these nightly highs
you're losing traction, so take some action

-verse2-
God's in a lab in
California
after your perfect
soulless persona

few trust their lives to
drunken circus clowns
just because they're the
most fun freaks in town

raise lighters like tides
to burning bridges
igniting flames all
throughout the pacific

so much to do here
couldn't enjoy it
since each checkered move
jumps and destroys it

-chorus-
drunken fights in dim streetlights
our California nights
despite all these nightly highs
pieces of the dream die

drunken fights in dim streetlights
our California nights
despite all these nightly highs
you're losing traction, so take some action

-outro-
once made her sick
caused so much pain
city finally
drove her insane

a stranger's hands
her bleeding head
face on the wheel
when would it end?

pushed through her car door
to these busy streets
a mix of daze and fear
she ran with bare feet

darting through an alley
that she had never seen

but it's here she got raped
and woke up from the dream

God's in a lab in
California
after your perfect
soulless persona

God's in a lab in
California
after your perfect
soulless persona
Track Name: My Asylum
-verse1-
the age of break-ups texts
drown in debts, gossip, sex
it's reflex, let's just bless
atheists, narcissists

stacked decks and second dates
infecting real with fake
love e-mails, lost details
reflection sealed that fate

cover the cuts we hide
inside sleeves filled with lies
wipe them sick off your streets
like the sleep in your eyes

some value these extremes
as cleansing the unclean
sadness, hate, happiness
but sometimes we feel nothing

-chorus-
when I think about that, baby
I lose my mind
my mind's like an asylum, maybe
but my hands are tied

-verse2-
even if the dead would sleep
or dreams could erase, this
brain wrapped up in white sheets
has me feeling racist

like light in the prism
scattered colors glisten
reflect the difference
or burn in our prisons

the lies our future speaks
horizons we've defined
let me piss on a piece
so I can call it mine

hide the pain like it's a
new stain on the carpet
hold that brain tight, you may
forget that we've lost it

-chorus-
when I think about that, baby
I lose my mind
our mind's like an asylum, maybe
but my hands are tied

-outro-
wake up sober, grown and older
paralyzed and so much colder,
realized that you've hurt her

you're paranoid and introverted
annoyed or deserted, murdered

diagnosed and disordered
pills each day, like torture

remember today's abortion
was last night's endorphin
Track Name: This Bomb's Like a Clock Tick
-verse1-
til I met your gaze
inside of my refuge
flames had came in waves
you slowly lit my fuse

locked in on my eyes
blinded by what I hear
our body heat will rise
the burn's our biggest fear

oh and then we touch
soon enough we're stuck in bliss
we didn't wanna rush
too tough in a blitz like this

act like we own it
even though we're so love sick
protect this moment
these explosions end so quick

-chorus-
a new war starts today
fallout fades, won't fade away
this bomb's like a clock tick
so tame and chaotic

a new war starts today
fallout fades, won't fade away
this bomb's like a clock tick
so tame and chaotic

-verse2-
bleeding loneliness
close cuts with just one stitch
needing every kiss
lost in lust, loving this

that moment you blushed
words became ambience
atmospheric love
leashed beneath the surface

street of emotion
left dead embers in it's wake
repeat each motion
what scent will this black flesh make?

internal pressure
one mistake is all it takes
becoming less sure
your smiling eyes won't detonate

-chorus-
a new war starts today
fallout fades, won't fade away
this bomb's like a clock tick
so tame and chaotic

a new war starts today
fallout fades, won't fade away
this bomb's like a clock tick
so tame and chaotic

-outro-
fingers felt scars all
around her wrist
though she can't recall
just why that is

wears a short red skirt
around her waist
weary smile plastered
across her face

watches scorched fields with
her flowered lens
ominous clock tick
makes no damn sense

and though we both stall
smiles are infectious
girl, I hope that's all
we'll both catch from this
Track Name: The Devolver
-chorus-
I watch her hand
drop my heart
close my eyes
it falls apart
since love ain't made
for the sane
I'll devolve
and start again

-verse1-
this dark apartment
once shined with bright smiles
there's no memories
just heaps of denial

I never learned why
time steers in reverse
can't see why we feel
warm in the winters

sing a long, sad song
let folks get us wrong
miss needing reason
here keeping me strong

symbolic autumn trees
preserved picture scenes
I'm obsessed with dreams
they float like orange leafs

-chorus-
I watch her hand
drop my heart
close my eyes
it falls apart
since love ain't made
for the sane
I'll devolve
and start again

-verse2-
we won't need your guns
cuz true suicides
hunt down the sunshine
and then die inside

all these aching trees
taken by the wind
scattered in pieces
let this season end

needs born from something
force-feed me nothing
which one is bluffing
punk or the hussy?

eventually
it cycles right round to
who leaves, you see?
though it won't shackle me

-chorus-
I watch her hand
drop my heart
close my eyes
it falls apart
since love ain't made
for the sane
I'll devolve
and start again

-verse3-
conquered by your heart
talk first and think second
chest is where these thoughts start
the brain is way too hectic

and pain is beauty
it's kinda sick, ain't it?
pretty as she seemed
let summer end like this...
Track Name: A Hurricane
-verse1-
the more I kept staring
through your swollen eyes
helped me remember
what we should keep in mind

that we tried this sober
but we both wasted time
only when we're plastered
do we forget the knives

I'm watching rising tides
drenched in rain and wet sand
too far from our shelter
with all we're better than

surges towards those three words
tornadoes break the sky
as that sandcastle fell
we'd never say goodbye

shoulder to shoulder
showered in this mist
but why hold you closer?
I blame you for all this

-chorus-
builds up slow
throughout my brain
it hits like a hurricane

a cyclone
in pouring rain
it hits like a hurricane

-verse2-
solidified visage
statues of ruin's youth
each blast of crashing tears
could've caved in our roof

fate twists us in circles
we spoke these words in floods
I heard you slowly waver
stream of thoughts would build up

and though we could both give
find that path back to shore
or drown ourselves in fate
go swim in more torture

against the sea, wind, waves
trees, earth, and universe
against pleas, tears, anger
sifting through written verse

when all we knew is no
we'll ignore the past tense
here I've described true love
losing any real sense

a drop in calm oceans
now watch this rocking rain
sweep us up off our feet
like love was a hurricane

and my greatest fear
ain't losing my mind
it's each thought itself
not quite being mine

-chorus-
builds up slow
throughout my brain
it hits like a hurricane

a cyclone
in pouring rain
it hits like a hurricane

builds up slow
throughout my brain
it hits like a hurricane

a cyclone
in pouring rain
it hits like a hurricane


-verse3-
a storm metaphor
us and what's in store
not like I'd hoped for
life pulled us from shore

been so long out here
pushed apart moments
where had we lost sight
wished this was different

remember the movement
mountains waves had washed away
like gods we'd stride the skies
currents blur yesterday

-outro-
just ignore it
and let it pass
be memory
watch it through glass

you don't need it
if it needs you
you're it's sustenance
don't let it use you
Track Name: Sandbox Phoenix
-verse1-
picture that we're both sane
trust these instincts again
our bodies lost in pain
black and red painted chains

but who'd have predicted this
never fled here worried
each evening we'd be born
but we'd die each morning

-chorus-
a phoenix
rose up from the sandbox

-verse2-
pit of this stomach burns
as charred feathers fall slow
floats through heaps of those dreams
hearts would never follow

supernatural thoughts
a big booze-induced trance
chase perfection for just
seconds of transcendence

-chorus-
a phoenix
rose up from the sandbox

-verse3-
too crushed to touch
true love's too much
rushed off in cuffs
is once enough?

smoke, wind and sin
in anything
wine glass half filled
pleads for meaning

feeds our belief in
this freedom demon
keep cutting feeling
til we see bleeding

alcohol floods for miles
roads paved in flames while
we're tossed into the wild
just flying while on fire

-outro chorus-
in hell, a bluebird's song
means more over the phone
we'd lay awake for days
listen in on dial tones

I'm a vulture on fire
dead rose in desert sand
through this breeze I'm reborn
as ashes in a wasteland
