about

"Overcoming The Monster" deals with the theme of psychological obstacles (monsters of the mind) that are manufactured in our thoughts, both internally through our insecurities, externally by the outside influence of others and collectively through the mass media which uses fear as a tool to manipulate our perceptions. "Overcoming The Monster" addresses the need to ignore these clandestine forms of control and rise above the Illusory obstacles that are placed in our path in order to deliberately block opportunities that are accessible to everybody.

Track Name: Sentinel
SENTINEL

so far, so long
from this road I've strayed too far
here is my shadow
the final star
overhead looms down on me
so laughs apollo
the monster from within shows no fear of letting go

Sentinel - change the tone, turn on up the light
Sentinel - change the tone, turn on up the light
dark soul of the night, mirror every shape I make
shadow cast by light, thou art already awake

evil eye, look away
no matter where I am, I hear it say
no one here can understand you
feeling down, my sense's weak
the villain from within my soul it seeks
no one here can understand you

no one understands you
no one understands you
their scheming, missleading, decieving, its all wrong

no one understands you
no one understands you
their scheming, missleading, decieving, its all wrong

no one here can understand you
no one here can understand you

no one understands you
no one understands you
their scheming, missleading, decieving, its all wrong

no one understands you
no one understands you
their scheming, missleading, decieving, its all wrong

so far, so long
from this road I've strayed too far
here is my shadow
Track Name: Parasomnia
PARASOMNIA

calling the visitor into view
nightfall administer of dreams so true
I need you to believe, wheres everybody
with that spell that you weave, I disembody
observe my body from above the door

calling the visitor into view
nightfall administer of dreams so true
I need you to believe wheres everybody
with the spell that you weave, I disembody

cannot stay awake, my eyes now closed
awaken in a room, which I don't know
white covers the walls, glass for a floor
electric in my veins, discharging

walk amongst those near
faces seem strange
I recognise your look
no not your name
you've aged about ten years
yet we've never met
from me my thoughts you are, your stealing

Parasomnia
drain my energy through the night
Parasomnia
drain my energy, leave on the lights

so mercurious, your trick it fell foul
alcohol free, no spirits allowed
vivid sights pass through my optical nerve
senses overload, it feels real

Parasomnia
drain my energy through the night
Parasomnia
drain my energy, leave on the lights
Track Name: Overcoming The Monster
OVERCOMING THE MONSTER

by remote and pathless ways
on the edge of this world
every tale has been told
I see love beyond your eyes
where the unseen appears
to awaken your fears
If you go I'll follow you to the other side
when we dream at night It seems as If we've died
yet our spirits alive

your overcoming the monster
shadow return, pavor nocturne
fears are running, fears are running wild
shadow return, pavor nocturne
fears are running, fears are running wild

Your Overcoming The Monster
Your Overcoming The Monster

I'm your sentinel and in tune we ride the waves
what's behind the wall, we will overcome someday

so the image fades from view
don't leave me here alone
don't turn me into stone
If you go I'll follow you to the other side
when we dream at night It seems as If we've died
yet our spirits alive

your overcoming the monster
shadow return, pavor nocturne
fears are running, fears are running wild
shadow return, pavor nocturne
fears are running, fears are running wild

Your Overcoming The Monster
Your Overcoming The Monster

I'm your sentinel and in tune we ride the waves
what's behind the wall, we will overcome someday
Track Name: Superfluous
SUPERFLUOUS

you've got the right credentials
you fill out the uniform well
Superfluous
we reap from the sorry wastelands
coerce them to sign up for the band
Superfluous

whatever we own we have stole
for this is population control
Superfluous

we are the coldest of all
I am the state the people
Superfluous

its the only way to get out of here
escape my fear

till now, for this duty I call
low down, along my belly I'll crawl (we see your potential)
In blood, I'll except my reward (we see your potential)
for me, a bodybag in the morgue

Track Name: Kubrick Moon
KUBRICK MOON

black is the screen that so transforms you
alchemical celluloid
no matter how vast the darkness
a light shines within the void

flying high
toward the sun theres no return
the wings of love shall burn

wait for you to wake in dreamland
suspend disbelief, and open up the sky
focus on the moon, silver screen
orbiting your mind
for thought creates this world

cinescreen, cube of space
align, geometric grace
sowing an esoteric grain

mechanized overload
pre program digital soul
calling you all will be explained
