It is not always polished, but it's authentic. Over the years through trial and a great deal of error he has come into his own. ... more

Track Name: Great Filter
Great filter in the distance
Will we make the other side
Will we survive ourselves
To the promise of post-scarcity life

As prisoners of the dollar we plunder in chains
In a world wide awake sleeping through our days

No harvest of the sun
Type zero in our ways
Greed and indecision
Led us astray

Oh I've seen it burning in the fields of the resource wars
In murder of potential, our progeny
There's no time to buy anymore

Great filter in the distance
Will we make the other side
Will we survive ourselves
On some grand interstellar ride

Oh to dream that far
Oh a sea of stars
Evolve and exceed who we are

Great filter in the distance
Will we make the other side
Will we survive ourselves
Beyond a fading glimpse in the night
Track Name: Letter From The 21st
I'm sorry you can't drink money
It suited us just fine
The causality of your age
We didn't want to pay the piper
for our wine

I'm sorry you can't breathe consumption
The legacy of narrow minds
It's there for you to see
Where New York used to be
The ruins of millions instantly gratified

Empty lives capitalizedAs I write this from the outside
Marginalized

But I hope you find forgiveness
For all we let fall away
I hope you find the courage
to be the century that I dream of
as I write these words today

I hope you've learned to love
I hope you've learned to love

You know I should be there with you
If only there was a way
Track Name: Return From The Dream
When he returns from the dream
He tries to remember what he's seen
He knows that most won't understand
The philosophies in his better land

The best he can hope for is to foster the change
To spare a few minds in this age of decay
But he knows the burden that brings
The isolation that fell upon him

Oh he knows
He can't take it to the grave
Oh he knows
These visions fade away

He sits us down one by one
Sharing the breadth of his head
The subconscious mysteries and oh that city
Now keep me awake instead
Now keep me awake instead

Oh he knows
He can't take it to the grave
Oh he knows
These visions fade away

When he returns from the dream
He tries to remember what he's seen
He knows that most won't understand
The philosophies in his better land
The philosophies in his better land
Track Name: The Time Traveler
Its hard to know when I've been
With a mind in so many strings
Visions of timelines I've changed
Lives rearranged

The afterthoughts of all the years
Still dance in my head
Resonating dreams and fears
Was it for me or them?

When I get home I'll destroy the machine
Throw the pieces in the paradoxical sea
Try to come to resolution inside me
Believing the present is real

In my head
In my head
In my head
In my head

It's hard to know what to think
When the multiversal voices sing
Echoes of timelines I have changed
leave me deranged

The afterthoughts of all the years
Still dance in my head
Resonating dreams and fears
Was it for me or them?
Track Name: Thunder From Mansfield To The Lake
Headlights cut through the rain
Thunder from Mansfield to the lake
Visions pass in the gypsy wind
Outflow draws the travelers in

They fill the valley with thoughts
for which no one has the time
They question the answers we'll never find
with the courage to breathe,
breathe on the outside

Headlights cut through the rain
Thunder from Mansfield to the lake
Visions pass in the gypsy wind
Outflow draws the travelers in

They fill the valley with thoughts
for which no one has the time
They question the answers we'll never find
with the courage to breathe,
breathe on the outside

So we stand and mock them in envy
as prisoners of unnatural order
But to them we're afterthoughts
thrown across the ridge line,
far from the water

Lives occluded by fear
Lives occluded by fear

Remnants of ourselves
consumed by the lie
Delusions of grandeur
consumed by time

Headlights cut through the rain
Thunder from Mansfield to the lake
Track Name: Everybody's Story
Everybody has a story tell
Everybody has something to sell
A look into one's eyes for authenticity
and you realize we're all scared as hell

Watch the moon rise above world
Lighting our journey from behind
7 billion fights for tomorrow
In the speeding away of time

The universe speaks nothing of our plight

Everybody has a story tell
Everybody has something to sell
A look into one's eyes for authenticity
and you realize we're all scared as hell

Maybe there is solace in love
Shattering infinity above
The thoughts the significance of it all
nd you'll find the greatest minds fall

Watch the moon rise above our world
Lighting our journey from behind
7 billion fights for tomorrow
When all there is, is tonight

Everybody has a story tell
Everybody has something to sell
A look into one's eyes for authenticity
and you realize we're all scared as hell
Track Name: Clocks On The Wall
Staring at the clocks on the wall
Frozen when my body falls
Echoes fall into the noise
Doubt challenges my poise

I'm tired fighting this room
I'm tired of fighting with you
I'll keep the battle to myself
A redress of me and no one else

Staring at the clocks on the wall
Frozen when my body falls
What if can fill my head
But what was is gone and only lives the ghost of regret

I'm tired fighting this room
I'm tired of fighting with you
I'll keep the battle to myself
A redress of me and no one else

Oh these moments are all my own
Oh these moments are all my own

Staring at the clocks on the wall
Frozen when my body falls
Track Name: Einstein-Rosen Bridge
He steps off a train
in world of stolen lives
Cold wind blows down the road
and tears well in his eyes
Locomotive tears down
the pathway of scars
Quiet desperation worn
on people's faces in the cars

He's just looking for the room the breathe
Words of wisdom lost
in what society's perception sees
Temporal madness has carried him this far
In his mind a hall of mirrors,
a false shimmer of the stars

It's a hard truth riding these rails
Light falls through thoughts forgotten
as past in silence fails
He stands upon the ivory precipice
where dreams are held for too long
and time becomes meaningless

He's just looking for the room the breathe
Words of wisdom lost in what society's perception sees
Temporal madness has carried him this far
In his mind a hall of mirrors,
a false shimmer of the stars

Just a half mile from the Einstein-Rosen Bridge
Just a half mile from the Einstein-Rosen Bridge
Just a half mile from the Einstein-Rosen Bridge

He's just looking for the room the breathe
Words of wisdom lost in what society's perception sees
Temporal madness has carried him this far
In his mind a hall of mirrors, a false shimmer of the stars
Track Name: Great Escape
The night behind me
The dawn before
I'm hiding between the days
Time suspended
Stream of thought has ended
I'm back to being cliche

I walk through the city
I fade into the gritty scape
I walk through the city
I fade into the gritty scape

Full moon waves from side to side as the night drips down through mind
Full moon waves from side to side as the night drips down through mind across the pines

I could walk away from it all
I could walk away from it all
and who would ever know

The night behind me
The dawn before
I'm hiding between the days
Time suspended
Stream of thought has ended
I'm back to being cliche

I make my great escape
