about

Video by Kip Praslowicz featuring "Pull of Gravity" - youtu.be/NqugirgMDUg

"Less oppressive and cold than warm and poppy, this album could rock a party of dance-music fans as well as a gloomy gathering of goths." —Duluth News Tribune

"...very theatric and powerful throughout. While it’s not afraid to be catchy, pretty and even pop at moments, it never lets the listener forget that there’s something a little dark about it." —Reader Weekly

Track Name: And The End Is
advanced analytics say one hope still remains,
where the hollow, apologetic and rueful crowd the elevator...
dead set for the city where we can disappear,
but dead men make the path laid before us

and the end is I don't answer to you,
and the end is I don't feel my feelings,
and the end is I don't care what you want,
and the end is I don't crave a meaning anymore

full speed and breaking through,
they fall in front of you,
crowds flood the median,
they feel the beat again, again...

advanced analytics say all we've known is pain,
so that smile seems a little misguided,
out of place...

we said we would never back down to them again,
but old men make for very bad soldiers

and the end is I don't answer to you,
and the end is I don't feel my feelings,
and the end is I don't care what you want,
and the end is I don't crave a meaning anymore...

full speed and breaking through,
they fall in front of you,
crowds flood the median,
they feel the beat again, again...

louder, you're breaking up again, you're breaking up

and the end is I don't answer to you,
and the end is I don't feel my feelings,
and the end is I don't care what you want,
and the end is I don't crave a meaning anymore...

full speed and breaking through,
they fall in front of you,
crowds flood the median,
they feel the beat again, again...
Track Name: Not One At All (You Are)
in a truth
vacuum
peeling
layers
all away in a blink

you are not one at all

for the suck
outward
prepare
silence
this is going to sting

heroes
cowards
wholesome
wretched
all stretched out and clean for you

pull the red
handle
eject
fallout
its not in your hands

if a soul
revives
returns
for vengeance
i'll see you again
Track Name: Ruins
stones and more
stand tall before the fall of man
redefined
for us repurposed and remade
turrets ramparts guard towers
ancient and obscene
proof of all
and nothing
ever to repeat
Track Name: Strange Disease
YOU’RE SO WEIRD
THE THINGS YOU’RE INTO
MAKE NO SENSE TO THEM
SO YOU FEEL ALONE
THAT SOUNDS FAMILIAR

WE COULD BE ALONE TOGETHER

WE ARE STRANGE DISEASE
WE ARE OUR OWN CURE
WE CAN LEAVE THIS PLACE
WHENEVER WE WANT TO

WE CAN BE ALONE TOGETHER

YOU'RE SO WEIRD
Track Name: Grand Mass
I’LL NOT ABIDE THE HAND
I STAND TALL
NOW I AM THE LAST OF ME
AND I GO (WHILE I CAN)

I GO INTO THE AIR
I GO INTO THE AIR
Track Name: The One, The Wayward
The one, the wayward stays
Awaits our autumn days
Of light not flesh remain
The guns for now lay quiet

I fight, I wait,
I hear the awful cries
I hope, I memorize my lines

It's better than the end I imagined
Better than the horrors I envisioned
If I can feel, I will feel no more
I'll show you who I am

The tide, the texture burns
The weight, the wild
Wave the ancient flag
Feel the ancients coming

You run, you weep
You try to wipe it clean
Nice try, quite a nice try

It's better than the end I imagined
Better than the horrors I envisioned
If I can feel, I will feel no more
I'll show you who I am
I can see, I can be, I am
I'll show you who you are
Track Name: The Pull of Gravity
POLES SPIN THE EARTH
TOWARD ENDS AND BEGINS AGAIN
TOLLS UPON THE WHOLE AT ONCE
BUT PULL US
TOWARD LOVE
PULL US APART
PULL US TOWARD LOVE

STARS SPIN THE EARTH
NO INTENT EVIDENT, YET
PULL US
TOWARD LOVE
PULL US APART
PULL US TOWARD LOVE

COSMOS, THE EARTH
INFINITE
YET PULLS US TOWARD LOVE
