about

Iridium Lafayette, Louisiana

Like the element of the same name, the band Iridium is unique, solid, and powerful. Four young musicians possessing passion, creativity, and most importantly - chemistry, came together in 2009 from central Louisiana and have built a strong local following, but with their grungy-rock-alternative sound, are beginning to emerge beyond the local scene. ... more

Track Name: The Jam Song
It's better to lean on; much better than taking it alone
The tables have turned now; it's time to get on with the show

One will die,
And two will try,
But three won't lie...
Until their muscles cry

Let's jam a bit longer; our hearts will grow stronger, don't you know?
The message is clear now; it's time to get off the radio

One will die,
And two will try,
But three won't lie...
Until their muscles cry

So hey now
Let's not throw life away now
The sound is what you say now
We're coming out to play

For you now
The here and now
Open wide
Here we come

One, two, three, four

So hey now
Let's not throw life away now
The sound is what you say now
We're coming out to play
Track Name: Break
I want to live until I die
There's nothing that could make me cry

Until I met you - I can't sleep at night
Since I found you, the rope is oh so tight

It's oh so tight...

Let's take a break and then we'll sit right down for a moment
Let's take a breath and then we'll lay it all on the line

Can we tell what lies inside
When every feeling runs and hides

So why go find you? You'll just slip and slide
It won't make it easier on my mind

You're on my mind...

Let's take a break and then we'll sit right down for a moment
Let's take a breath and then we'll lay it all on the line

I want to live until I die
There's nothing that could make me cry

Until I met you - I can't sleep at night
Since I found you, the rope is oh so tight

I lost control
I can't let go

Let's take a break and then we'll sit right down for a moment
Let's take a breath and then we'll lay it all on the line
Track Name: Like the Summer
It's too late for you to shine, 'cause all your time is gone
Remember the day I lied and tried to take you on
I'm wrapped up in shadows that you cast against my wall
So take your leave, make like a tree, so everything can fall

It's gone, all wasted
Like the summer - overrated

It's too late for you to light the street that takes me home
For blinding me enticingly from everything I've known

It's done, situated
Since the summer segregated

It's done, situated
Since the summer segregated

It's gone, all wasted
Like the summer - overrated
Track Name: The Better
We surround the green table and we have failed as one, and I
Can't forget the cards you kept in sleeves about your gown
But the truth is that I know...

The better it gives, the better it gets
The better it gives, the better it gets
The better it gives, the better it gets
The better it gives...

And I lay down outside
If I let you win, it won't be so bad
If I fold now, it might be for the best

I put myself down on the table to see the chances I might have tonight
But I found the luck I had was meager around this town
But I guess you'll never know...

The better it gives, the better it gets
The better it gives, the better it gets
The better it gives, the better it gets
The better it gives...

And I lay down outside
If I let you win, it won't be so bad
I got a straight to the queen
If I fold now, it might be for the best
Track Name: Make You Pay
I don't wanna know where you wanna go
I don't wanna see who you wanna be
You told me that you'd listen to the words that I would say
Part of me had told me that I'd never see that day
Think of all the times you could have thrown it all away
When everyone, everyone said I had to make you pay

Let's not mend what we cannot repair
Mainly 'cause I'm only just a spare

Our time is wasting away
What do you want me to say?
I'm losing nerve day by day
And then you turn and run

I don't wanna know how your body grows
You took it all from me, and you hit it on the nose
Think of all the times you couldn't think of things to say
Now everyone, everyone said I had to make you pay

I can't find the means to understand
You'd never guess by how it all began
I'll be sure to take my time
You are not an enemy of mine

Our time is wasting away
What do you want me to say?
I'm losing nerve day by day
And then you turn and run
Track Name: Gracie
Little Gracie is a model
Always outside of the bottle
I wanna take her to the levee
This emptiness is killing me

My allegiance with the species
Always gives me the heebie-jeebies
I'm living a lie, the river has dried,
But the stream still flows in my mind

She's the one who gets away
Tries to tell what's safe from sound
I'm in love by myself,
With my leg stuck in the ground,
And it's cold

Gracie dreams of open spaces
Wouldn't mind a few new faces
I wanna kiss but she's so heavy
This emptiness is killing me

She's the one who gets away
Tries to tell what's safe from sound
I'm in love by myself,
With my leg stuck in the ground,
And it's cold

Come on baby!

She's the one who gets away
Tries to tell what's safe from sound
I'm in love by myself,
With my leg stuck in the ground,
And it's cold
