about

Man Made Fate Lincoln, UK

Exploring the spaces between the serene & the frenetic, the clean & the distorted, the hopeful & the desperate are Lincoln alt-rock quintet Man Made Fate. Expect brooding emo-esque vocals, melodic lead basslines, big bluesy guitar solos, genre-hopping beats and haunting reverb soundscapes. Or something like that... ... more

Track Name: Have it Your Way
If you think
You're better off
Stumbling on in ignorance,
Pretending it's OK

Then I just might
Be Content
To know the worst of this was not so bad
That we could not forget

So if you think
You're better off
Then go ahead


Is it courage of conviction
And strength of will
Or is it just the fear of change
That keeps you hanging on and on and on and on?
(On and on)

If you think
You're better off
Stumbling on in ignorance,
Pretending it's OK

Then I just might
Be Content
To know the worst of this was not so bad
That we could not forget

And I was right
When I said
It's so funny how nobody wins
If someone's keeping score

But I was wrong
When I believed
That the best of this was yet to come:
It must have passed me by

So if you think
You're better off
Stumbling on in ignorance
Pretending it's OK
Just go ahead
Carry on
Have it your way

So is it courage of conviction
And strength of will
Or is it just the fear of change
That keeps you hanging on and on and on and on?
That keeps you hanging on and on and on and on?
Keeps you hanging on
Track Name: Don't Ask
Don’t ask me what I’m thinking
I don’t want to know

Don't ask me why I came here
I can't wait to go

Whatever you want to hear: don't ask
There is nothing that I want to tell
Whatever you need from me: don't ask
You can work it out for yourself

Whatever you want
Whatever you need
Whatever you think, don't ask
Don't ask me

Whatever you want
Whatever you need
Whatever you think, don't ask
Don't ask me

Don’t ask me what I’m drinking
I don’t mean to stay

Don't ask me for forgiveness
I won't do the same

Whatever you want to hear: don't ask
There's really nothing that I want to tell
Whatever you need from me: don't ask
I'm sure you'll work it out for yourself

Whatever you want
Whatever you need
Whatever you think, don't ask
Don't ask me

Whatever you want
Whatever you need
Whatever you think, don't ask
Don't ask me
Any more
Track Name: For You
If you spill one drop of blood
If you weep one single tear
If you lose one bead of sweat
I promise I'll be near

If you call one cry for help
If you say one single word
If you make one little sound
I promise you'll be heard

If you
Lose your way
If you
Find despair
If you
Give up hope
I promise I'll be there
I promise I'll be there

I promise I'll be there
I promise I'll be there

For every moment you have graced
For every smile that you have brought to this face
For every part of me you've touched
For every word you said that meant so much

I will be there
I will be there
I promise I'll be there
For you
