about

Lo-Pan Columbus, Ohio

Lo-Pan’s fifth release, In Tensions, is a new five song EP that sees the seasoned Columbus, OH band continuing their blistering trajectory, building on the infectious, riff-filled grooves of their 2014 full-length Colossus.

In Tensions also marks the next stage in the band’s ever-evolving direction — anchored by the lead single “Go West”, an optimistic, sun-kissed, open highway anthem.

Track Name: Go West
HEAD WEST TO A HOME BEYOND THE DEEP
BLACK OUT THE SUN AS YOU GO
TAKE DOWN YOUR BANNERS AND BE SILENT. NOW.
REVISE THE VOWS THAT YOU’VE MADE. YEAH EVERY WORD THAT YOU KNOW.
STEP HEAVY, FOR TO LIVE IS BITTERSWEET

FIND NOTHING ON THE BLOODY SHORE
OVERCOME BY THE PETULANT SEA

THEY SAY THE WEST IS A TOMB
THE WIND CLEARING EVERYTHING YOU’VE EVER DONE
TAKE DOWN YOUR BANNERS DON’T YOU LET THEM SEE-YOU-CRY
ON THIS SACRED GROUND. NO.
REST EASY NOW YOUR JOURNEY IS COMPLETE

FIND EVERYTHING YOU WANTED HERE
OVERCOME BY CERULEAN SKY…WHO SAID YOU CAN’T GO HOME

TIME RUNS ONE WAY
ITS STRONG ITS SET
ITS EVERYONE YOU’VE EVER KNOWN
ITS EVERYWHERE YOU BEEN

FIND NOTHING ON THAT BLOODY SHORE
OVERCOME BY THE PETULANT SEA
I JUST WANNA GO HOME
WHO SAYS YOU CANT GO HOME?

TIME RUNS ONE WAY
ITS STRONG ITS SET
ITS EVERYONE YOU’VE EVER KNOWN
ITS EVERYWHERE YOU BEEN
I JUST WANNA GO HOME
WHO SAYS YOU CANT GO HOME?

ITS EVERYWHERE YOU’VE BEEN
ITS EVERYONE YOU’VE KNOWN
UNENDING BLOODY SHORE
TAKE DOWN YOUR BANNERS – DON’T YOU LET THEM SEE YOU CRY
Track Name: Sink Or Swim
I TURNED AWAY FROM YOU
YOU NEVER KNEW – AND ITS DANGEROUS TO PERCEIVE
I WALK THE STREETS THAT I KNEW
SITTING SILENT – AND IM BEGGING FOR REPREIVE

IM DROWNING IN YOU. YOUR WORDS HAVE WEIGHT FOR ME
AND IM DROWNING IN THE DEEP
BEEN DRIFTING IN LOVE – LETS SAIL INFINITELY
NAVIGATE THE OPEN SEA
THERE WAS A TIME I LIVED FOR YOU
I KNEW THE BURDEN, AND NOW IM SHOULDERING THE CROSS
THE PEDESTAL I PLACED YOU ON
IS HIGH ABOVE ME – IN THE GOLDEN AGE OF LOSS

IM DROWNING IN YOU. YOUR WORDS HAVE WEIGHT FOR ME
AND IM DROWNING IN THE DEEP.
WE’VE SUFFERED ENOUGH. LETS SAIL FOR CALMER SEAS.
RIDE THE WAVES OF BITTERSWEET

FOUND MY WAY – TO THE STAGE IM STANDING ON.
I ROMANTICIZE THE EARLY DAYS
I JUST CANT SEEM TO FIND THE SUN – THE RENEWING ONE

YES I FOUND MY WAY – TO THE OPEN WAVES SUSTAINING ME
I CRITICIZE MY LATER YEARS
I JUST CANT SEEM TO FIND THE SUN – THE PRECIOUS ONE
Track Name: Long Live The King
I WAKE TO REMEMBER
10 YEARS GONE PAST
ADRIFT ON THE OCEAN
LIGHT’S FADING FAST -

I SPENT SOME TIME IN THE DESERT
I SPENT TIME IN THE SHADE
SPENT TIME GOING OVER
THE MISTAKES I MADE

I NEVER THOUGHT I’D FEEL LIKE A STRANGER
DON’T THINK ME INSINCERE
I NEVER THOUGHT YOU ONE TO SURRENDER
AND AFTER ALL THESE YEARS – I’M

LOOKIN’ FOR ANOTHER SOUND – NOT ANOTHER SONG
NOT MAKING ANY MORE EXCUSES – IT WAS ALWAYS WRONG

OVERSEEING HIS DOMINION
SITS THE KING ON HIGH
WIN BY ATTRITION
RULE BY TRADITION

SPENT SOME TIME ON THE OUTSIDE
THAT’S THE PRICE I PAID
IT GAVE ME TIME TO CONSIDER
THE MISTAKES I MADE
I NEVER THOUGHT I’D FEEL LIKE A STRANGER
DON’T THINK ME INSINCERE
I NEVER THOUGHT YOU ONE TO SURRENDER
AND AFTER ALL THESE YEARS –
I WANT TO MAKE THIS CLEAR
WHEN ALL IS SAID AND DONE – YOU SEE ME STANDING HERE
NO IM NOT RUNNING AWAY FROM YOU
LET ME MAKE THIS CLEAR
WHEN ITS SAID AND DONE – YOU SEE ME STANDING HERE
YOU WONT FIND ME RUNNIN’ AWAY FROM YOU

I TELL MYSELF TO GO
BUT MY HEART CANT COMPLY

OH I CANT WALK AWAY
AND I STILL WONDER WHY

WANT TO MAKE THIS CLEAR
WHEN ALL IS SAID AND DONE – YOU SEE ME STANDING HERE
NO IM NOT RUNNING AWAY FROM YOU
LET ME MAKE THIS CLEAR
WHEN ITS SAID AND DONE – YOU SEE ME STANDING HERE
YOU WONT FIND ME RUNNIN’ AWAY FROM YOU

LOOKIN’ FOR ANOTHER SOUND – NOT ANOTHER SONG
NOT MAKING ANY MORE EXCUSES – IT WAS ALWAYS WRONG
Track Name: Pathfinder
I SEE THE WEAK ONES RUSH INTO THE STORM
I NEED ANOTHER WAY
OH JUST ANOTHER WAY TO FIND MY WAY

I HEAR THE WARLORDS BID US TO CONFORM
WITH EVERY WORD THEY SAY
SO QUICK TO PUSH YOU TO YOUR DYING DAY
TALKING IN CIRCLES IS THE NEW ART FORM
THEY NEED US TO OBEY
I NEED ANOTHER WAY TO FIND MY WAY

A HIGHER ELEVATION; NEW LIFE FORM
I NEED ANOTHER WAY
I NEED ANOTHER WAY

I NEED A NEW WAY TO RIDE…
AND JUST ONE MORE SUMMER. ONE MORE SUN.
A NEW WAY NOT TO LIVE INSIDE MY HEAD

I NEED A NEW WAY TO SEE…
TO SEE THE LONG NIGHT THROUGH AND THE HARD ROAD DONE
RENEWING ALL THE THINGS YOU THOUGHT YOU SAID

ALL THOSE DEAD HOT NIGHTS – BUT DON’T SAY A WORD
DON’T SAY A WORD

ALL THOSE LONG LONELY MILES – BUT DON’T SAY A WORD
NO DON’T YOU SAY A WORD

I NEED A NEW WAY TO RIDE…
AND JUST ONE MORE SUMMER. ONE MORE SUN.
A NEW WAY NOT TO LIVE INSIDE MY HEAD

I NEED A NEW WAY TO SEE…
TO SEE THE LONG NIGHT THROUGH, THE HARD ROAD DONE
RENEWING ALL THE THINGS YOU THOUGHT YOU SAID

BUT HERE’S TO THE END
IVE SEEN THE WHOLE WORLD OVER, THE LONG ROAD FULL
STILL SO MUCH TO SEE BEFORE IM DEAD

I SEE THE WEAK ONES RUSH INTO THE STORM
I NEED ANOTHER WAY
TALKING IN CIRCLES IS THE NEW ART FORM
I NEED ANOTHER WAY.
A HIGHER ELEVATION NEW LIFE FORM
I NEED ANOTHER WAY

I NEED ANOTHER WAY
SHOW ME ANOTHER WAY
