about

Fever Hymns Charlotte, North Carolina

Fever Hymns started with Jon Davis and Jordan Staley playing songs in a basement. That’s where it should have stayed but unfortunately they decided to take the music no one had asked for to the people who had never asked for it. Thus Fever Hymns was born. Kyle Jones and Jeremy Maher joined the band in 2013 and the songs that had been were completed and more were written. ... more

Track Name: Back To Dust
Do you wonder if the wind blows when you whisper my name
In the darkness where you always can be found
When you’re floating past the bridge you crossed just to forget my face
Do you ever want to stop and turn around?
I wonder
I wonder how I feel
I wonder, how am I supposed to feel?

If light won’t wait for the morning
And I won’t wait for the light
Everyone in their own words
Now will fade back down to dust

Do you wonder if my skin crawls when you whisper in my ear
All the reasons we would never have worked out
If you bite the hand that feeds while you’re down and on your knees again
Begging for grace
I wonder
I wonder how I feel
I wonder, how am I supposed to feel?
Track Name: Starting Again
I wanted love and everybody outside wanted the same
When you find it again, would you both understand?

Do you really want to know this time?

I wanted trust and everybody outside wanted the same
When you find it again, would you both understand?

Do you really want to know this time?

I’m starting again.
Track Name: Halo
I woke in the midst of a sleepless night with the light of you in my room
So I walked the streets alone
Every night it’s always the same thing
I see into their homes

I walked to the river to clear my head but your image it chased me down
And I was scared of it
Every night do you feel the same way?
Are you scared?

Do you want it all?
I can’t for the life of me soon forget the weight of the world you love
Steady as she goes, ‘cause this goes on and on and on and on
I don’t want to know when the weight of it all breaks your heart
Everyone outside hangs their halos on the back of their door
And then just looks away

Do you want it all?
Track Name: Dark Horse
You left with words on the back of your tongue
It isn’t right to be exactly what they want
I’m over and under it
We’re staring holes in the wall
Waiting for calls that just won’t come
Our heartbreak is visible to everyone

Come lay down with me (for now)

This is a noose and I’m hanging around
Staring at the spinning ground
You wrote it all down inside a note
“I am a dark horse running around
I steal what you love
Just hang there as it leaves your hands”

Come lay down with me
Track Name: Wicked Land
I can hear the train, coming all across this wicked land
I once thought I knew it, but it seems that has an end

Do you remember being young?
Do you remember feeling so damn lost?
With my hands lifted up
I sang of things I’d never know

And I’m a sucker for a kind word
A cheap shot, a set of legs
Yeah I’m all got
And I don’t know what’s left to say
About time… guess we pack it up and get out of line
I don’t want to be the good guy
If it means I lose my mind

I can hear your voice ringing out across this wicked land
I once thought I knew it but it seems that has an end
This is not the way it ends

This is not what you wanted
For me
For them
Track Name: Gibreel
He holds the keys to your bones, in the garden but it’s well guarded
I wonder how it looked to you, when he was screaming
Of rebirth and stardom, when I become a martyr
I wonder how to make you see, it’s not right at all

It wasn’t right, you came in like a thief in the night
It wasn’t right, you stole our love and left us here alone

Here lies the son-of-a-bitch with no father, he lived well-guarded
I wonder how it looked to you when he was screaming
Of rebirth and stardom, when he became a martyr
Look at what you’ve done
You killed your only son

I’m coming up
This place is mine tonight

I will fly away.
Track Name: The Back Of What You Read
Write it down in the back of what you read
Give him a better life than the one that you had
Hope to God he works for every day
And doesn’t waste it all the way your father did

And everybody knows
My head’s in the sand
Everybody knows
Exactly where I stand right now

We don’t want you to lack anything
Especially not the things that you need
We hope that God works in you every day
Making you the man that he wants you to be

And everybody knows
My head’s in the sand
Everybody knows
Exactly where I stand right now

We are proud of the man we raised
Your father and I will love you always
We hope your heart guides you every day
And that you’re thankful for every breath you take
Track Name: Rise And Shine
I woke up in the back of the ambulance
There were tires screeching, sirens calling my name
And I drifted back into their harsh words
And I thought of you

Every word you say makes me who I am

I woke up in surprise at this hospital gown and these bright lights
The stage is set for an early exit
And I’ll be leaving soon, stronger hands pulled me down and I said

Every word you say makes me who I am
Track Name: Toy Soldiers
I rolled the dice
Everyone here is still alive
It looks like I got it right
I just saved your life

I rolled the dice

I ain’t got no soul
I lost it in the war
When I am dead and gone
They will fall alone

I rolled the dice

You want it straight?
We’re all running away.
Life caught up with love and left us tired now
I locked the door, I drank myself to sleep
And then I got up.
Track Name: Evac
Everyone got the message
“Pack it up and move it on
Every place you love, is now gone”
Everyone is on their knees
Trying their hardest to please an angry God

I try to get it almost every time
Let’s go out in style

Everyone wants the message
Prettied up and dumbed down
“Every person you love, is now mine.”
I don’t want to be the only person feeling sad and lonely
When it comes down to it

I try to get it almost every time
Let’s go out in style

When the good is gone where do you go to draw the line?
Just stand there waiting for a sign
I tried to go out, in.
Track Name: Making God
I saw God in the street, he asked me if I had some change for just a bite to eat
I looked at Him, I went and turned away

I saw God in the street, the track marks inching up his arm made it hard for him to speak
I looked at Him, I went and turned away

I don’t know what it means
To love everyone as He loved us all
A great big family
‘Cause every time I wake up I get bored

Do it again say You won’t ever leave my side

I see God in everything
The mountains that you’re trying to move
And the cancer you can’t shake
‘Cause every time you pray it leaves Him bored

Do it again say You won’t ever leave, my God
Do it again fill me up ‘till I overflow

My God came, He filled me up then left me alone
And I don’t know just what it meant those years ago
Everyone here will die, maybe you’ll fly
Maybe you’ll burn
And I’m not afraid of where I go, just how I will get there from here

Do it again
Say You will

I saw God in me
The way that He’s always running away and losing faith in things
I’m afraid this is the god I’ve made.
Track Name: Communion
I sleep to the sound of Angels singing over me
I wake to the voices of Demons saying
“Look at the mess your God has made
Can He fix it? Will His grace ever change?”

If I run to you would I believe?
If I run to you would I be free?

I walk to the rhythm of my lungs guiding me
I walk the oh-so-straight and narrow most days
But at the end of that plank I see my friends singing
“Look at the mess you made.
You deserve your Savior”

If I run to you would I believe?
If I run to you would I be free?
If I run to you would you help me see
Why my shit seems so never-ending

I feel like I’m all grown up now
Because I don’t understand just what God does
I don’t find the joy in my life
I’ve been locking my jaw down on something soft and warm

“Son, this is my body
Broken for you, now take and eat.”

And I eat...
And I eat…
But I can’t get filled up.
