Unfolding perfectly / everything that could breathe / lost in the patterns and in the Way / of the Universal Tree / and everything but me / surrounded by your enemy / what are we missing? / Why don’t we listen? / It is our mystery
When you were there, it didn’t mean anything, it didn’t mean anything / it was just another moment. It was just another moment / Then you go home and, Then you go home and, Then you go home and turn it over in your mechanical brain / it’s strange / That at times, it is only the afterthought that causes all the suffering / It is strange, so strange / That at times you need to let it go, there’s a new beginning again / what are missing / why do we listen / it is our mystery…
I had a dream I traveled time / I felt my happiness unwind / I was set into a book or a puzzle or play / I dreamed I had a lot to say / But then, what came upon the wind / A message sent / God knows by who and when / But it said that the sun will burn out, the sun will burn out soon / And now they all know that the sun will burn out, the sun will burn out soon / And everyone’s preparing for what they can’t prepare for / And everyone’s preparing for what’s could be in store when there’s no tomorrow…no tomorrow anymore / But it said that the sun will burn out, the sun will burn out soon / And now they all know that the sun will burn out, the sun will burn out soon….
I could have lost it all today / could have followed foolish parades / in a drunken stupor till I landed on someone else's door / and what’s more / I don’t remember a thing / In living color with my mind / I could not break away this time / there is a message it’s the one that I’m not sending cause I really don’t think it’s my time / so… I could have found another way / I could have lost it all today / and lend my hand to a mad parade and stay / I could have found it all again / but there was something holding me / fast to my chair / couldn’t pull away…
small victories / a trembling leaf / nothing’s left at the end of each day / moments when nothing happening / and your spellbound with the memories / seeing then what could have found / a reason to express these / seeing then what could have found / a way to break the madness
I’m running in a madness circle / I’m running in a madness circle / everyone I see is on the way / And everybody here dreams of nothing / I swear they sit around and dream of nothing / nobody knows what they’ve done today /and I see myself a-running out of the shell that’s kept me there for so long / so very long / And I see my dreams a running / here they come now better catch them / Get it on way too long / You better put your spell-bound sunglasses on / and watch it glow
You never want / what life could give you / you never have / what it takes / know it won’t wait…
I’m tired of everything / explaining all the things that I have done today / I had to answer to someone / The boss is getting weird / all of my colleagues are half-insane by the end of the day / so I just go home and rev up all my records / and try to forget about everyone / and everything / but it’s no use / they ran me out of juice / oh / it’s no use / they ran me out of juice / and the mirror seems cold / and dreams are growing old / tomorrow I awaiting a delusion / think it’ll be time for tea / think it’ll be time for me / didn’t take into consideration / the backbone of my existence is depending on my every move / so forget it / forget it / I sit there and wallow
Hold my hand / we’ll get through this dark night together / hold my hand / I can show you / hold my hand / I’ll show you how to get there / hold my hand / I’ll show you how to move / hold my hand / I’ll show you how to move / if you want to
I rush to get through in time to begin / I rush to get climbing when there’s another peak to ascend / I just get through speaking some words / when I’ve got something else to explain / it happens again and again / but my memories blur of all the years I’ve said the same things / my memories blur like a child / I’ve already been here way too much / I’ve already thought about all of the possibilities / while I’m here underneath the tree / there’s many like me / there’s many like me


This is the stream-of-consciousness experimental rock album that we've been dreaming of making for quite some time now. We're really happy with the transitions between the songs, and how the album as a whole holds together. We originally took about 45 minutes worth of improvised music Brian came up with one inspired evening, and whittled it down to the current 18 minute 11-track incarnation. We hope you enjoy it and we look forward to making more records like this one in the future. Please SHARE!!!
