about

We Are Ardent Welland, Ontario

We Are Ardent make alternative music in the broadest sense of the word, mixing lead-footed 90’s grunge rock with the polyrhythms of South Africa. Their classic line-up of guitar, bass and drums is offset by the inclusion of kalimba and is spiced with dynamic shifts between female and male lead singers. ... more

Track Name: Low
Giving in while bleeding out
Why should I care if I can't hear the sound
Holding on, fading now
I have a smile but I feel a frown
(Feel a frown)

Breathing out, second guess
Every dream like there's nothing left
You scream as I'm giving out
When I let go we all go down
in Tears of sweat, sweat and joy
I hear nothing, but you hear noise
You hear noise

I feel low sometimes
That's alright, you'll be fine
(x3)
I feel low sometimes

I feel low sometimes
That's alright, you'll be fine
(x3)
I feel low sometimes
It's alright you'll be fine
I feel low, sometimes

I feel low sometimes
That's alright, you'll be fine
(x3)
I feel low sometimes
Track Name: Young And Giants
We were young, we were giants
We were strong, just like the lions
Hard as marble, soft as shale
Smart as them all but still I’d come to fail

Where were you when I needed you the most
Afraid to come in and see my lying with my ghost

We were young, we were giants
We were numb, oh so defiant
Lies like acid eat through the stone
Beat me down and then you leave me here alone

Where were you when I was calling your name
Afraid to come in and see me dying once again

We were young
We were young
We were young
We were young
(Instrumental)

We were young, we were giants
We were dumb for chasing lions
Were we weak? Were we poor?
If we were beaten down would we keep coming back for more?

We were young, we were giants
We were lost, as least we’re trying
Running circles, losing sleep
Rotting so fast that there’s nothing left to keep

We were young.
Track Name: Quiet Like Noise
Destined for madness
I create to destroy
Im living to end this
My silence is joy
(my silence is)

We’re living like babies
Searching for toys
You might think im crazy
My silence is joy,

My silence is joyyyyyy
My quiet like noiseeeee

You have ended such sadness
You tired weak boy
Cant stop now that I have it
My silence is joy

My silence is joy,
A quiet like noise
Mysilence is joy
A quiet like noise

Solo


My silence is joy
A quiet like noise
My silence is …
My silence is joy
Track Name: Vultures
A house, not a home
Here with you, so alone
If these walls could talk,
They’d wail

Empty bottles, piles of ash
Everything built, and smashed
I struggled long and failed

Palpable misery, air of despair
Pleasantries history, long past repair

The scattered bones like Voodoo dice
Forecast our demise
And call the vultures to rip at my flesh
They know that you wont hear my cries

I witness fouls of hell
Baron lands, stripped trees, they tell
Forced to death
And still….

The heart still thrives
Implanted to survive
Like finding hell
On earth

Palpable misery, air of despair
Pleasantries history, long past repair

The scattered bones like Voodoo dice
Forecast our demise
And call the vultures to rip my flesh
They know that you wont hear my cries

As we crawl through the wreckage that once was our lives
We’re cut, we bleed, we can’t survive
Your thumbs spit poison, your eyes breathe fire,
Won’t somebody pull us from this mire

The scattered bones like Voodoo dice
Forecast our demise
And call the vultures to rip my flesh
They know that you wont hear my cries
