Our debut album "In the Dream" is a concept album that tells a story about love and alternate realities while reflecting a world where wealth is synonymous with our worth. A world where breeding a society of consumers is becoming more highly valued than abolishing suffering and helping people find happyness.

Track Name: Some Day
Some day our eyes will meet
Like flawless mirrors perfectly aligned
Sending our gaze back and forth
I'll see myself through you
You'll see yourself through me

Learning all in our subconcious minds
Spending our concious lives
Realizing what we already know
All I have to do
Is believe
Track Name: Morning - Part 1
Good morning, son
It's morning, son
Today not tonight
You know that I'm right
So why do you
Why do you
Shun sun morning light?

Hello, stand up
Hello, sit down
A pop quiz today
Your books put away
and tell me
did you study this time, hey?

All those lean, mean, slaves to the green
With their planned, packed, daily routines
Tomorrow they'll have their meetings
and they won't be late
Track Name: Human
Some say
I'm weird
Not sane
I care

Though I am human, I
Do not get human, I'm
Searching for something beyond

Chuck wood
I should
I could
I would

Don't know what I'm doin'
My program is ruined
Searching for something beyond

Though he is human, he
Does not get human, he's
Searching for something beyond

Knowing not what doing
Ruining programming
Searching for something beyond
Track Name: Morning - Part 2
Mayday, student in distress
I don't think I'm ready for the motherfuckin' test
Tried to stay awake
Took another break
Rest my eyes a bit
It's a quarter to eight!
On my way to school, study and
Sitting in the class, study
Don't listen!
But the teacher saw the book
Closed the book
Took the book
And said
Pay attention!

Good morning, son
It's morning, son
Again running late
You know they won't wait
So why do you
Why do you
Lay and masturbate!?

...stand up.
...sit down!
The finals today
Good luck, by the way
I hope that you
Hope that you
Studied this time, hey

All those lean, mean, slave to the green
Walking dead, bread's the cause, not the means
Tomorrow they'll have their paychecks
Mindless sleep, forget dreams
Track Name: Slap the Monkey to Sleep
Hardly breathing, feeling
Mostly alive, I'm only
Slightly dead
Slightly dead

Somewhere, someone told me
I'm still alive but they were
Slightly wrong
Slightly wrong

And if the sky is falling you'll find me in the toilet
And if hell freezes over I must be getting laid
Don't ask me when I'll come home
Don't try to reach me by phone
I'm gonna get real stoned

Love you, hurt you, leave you
Pray you forgive and learn to
Play the game
Play the game

Sorry, angry, sorry
Drive me bananas, have I
Gone insane
Gone insane

And if you say it's over we're getting back together
And if you let me kiss you then I'm a dying man
If you invite me inside
and let me in for a ride
then leave me hanging outside
to slap the monkey to sleep

Mirror, mirror, mirror
Mirror on the wall, I'm gonna
Lose my hair
I don't care

Craving, needing something
Sweet in my mouth, I'm gonna
eat ice cream

And I resolve refusal till someone asks me again
They make it hard to say no, and I make it hard to say yes
I want to keep my hat on
They want them naked and long
Before I knew it she's gone
I slap the monkey to sleep
Track Name: Casual Beauty
Casual beauty
Passing me by
Running me over
Catching my eye
Dressed up like some rebel
Can't imagine a cause to believe in
Casual beauties are always forgiven
As long as they honestly try

Casual beauty
You have no name
You don't hear music
Playing your game
You cannot stain me, I know
All I need know about you

Casual beauties
Are lonely and bored
Whenever they've no one to do

Lonesome and fragile
I can't explain
This lack of attention
Can drive me insane
But you're dime a dozen
And dozens are dying to be near me
Those casual people with casual gestures
And a casual stare at my breasts

You can't win me neither
And you can't escape
I hear your music
Screaming my name
The music is screaming my name

Casual beauty
Heading my way
Walking straight through me
Your image fades
My favourite figment
Not one step further for you
Casual beauties leave casual memories
The moment their beauty's subdued

Casual beauty
Passing me by
Running me over
Catching my eye

My favourite figment
Not one step further for
Track Name: Love in a Bottle
Frozen here warm, with you
Empty here, full with you
Sadness here, joy with you
Lonely here, love with you
I am here, not with you
Not with you
Not with you

Don't care about, don't care about, don't care about... people, I
Don't care about, don't care about, don't care about... people who
Don't care about, don't care about, don't care about... me yet I
Do care about, do care about, do care about... you

Raging hormones and surging endorphines have kept me away from the truth
Curly brown hair still fires my engines but I will contain the fires of youth
Don't need drugs, don't need pills
I don't need this pain killed
Fall in love, fall by love
By my hand I fell in love

I'm not, I'm not, I'm not
I'm not leaving, I'm not leaving
I'm not leaving till I say
I'm not leaving till I say... I love you

Every time we happen to meet
In school, at the pool or on the street
It's such a treat
That treat so sweet
It makes me feel
It makes me think

And then when we have to depart
This heavy feeling floods my heart
Hits like a dart
Tears me apart
It makes me feel
It makes me think

Am I in love with you?
Am I in love with you?

Nothing's gonna happen
She don't give a damn
She is always busy
When it comes to me

Tried to find another
Fall for someone new
But could not forget her
How I wish she knew

Not one straight thought had crossed my mind
From the day we met none could I find
Am I behind?
Perhaps I'm blind?
It makes me feel
It makes me feel
It makes me feel
It makes me think

Am I in love with you?
Are you in love with me?
Oh, can you feel it too?
Is this love meant to be?
Is our love meant to be?
Track Name: How Nice...
No really, thats O.K.
I've been watching you all day
And there's no need to look back now.
I take the easy way again:
Just gonna sit tight in my chair
And watch your perfect face expand
As you take another careless breath
Off your cigarette.
How nice is that.
How nice is that.

I play a song that you already heard,
Yet I see in your eyes that you don't understand,
Every sentence and phrase was referring to you,
But you don't give a damn, I just sound like a fool,
Trying to reach out with words to your solid rock heart
Tell me, how nice was that, when you drilled in through mine?
Track Name: Up and Down
How are you?
Who are you?
Look at what you did to you

Something's wrong
You sound gone
What the fuck is going on?

Up and down
Up and down
Most go up but you go down

You need help
You need help
Please calm down, I want to

Help you
You loosen up
You breathe in slowly out
Calm down
It's time to rest
Inside you're a mess

Leave me be
So I just leave you be?
Is that what you ask of me?

Don't know why and
Time goes by
We could talk, please tell me

Fall behind
I don't mind
But I think I've lost my mind

Where is he?
Who am he?
Cares for you, is he still me?
Track Name: American Dream
Everybody knows a nutritious breakfast
Is what you need to start the day
So if you don't eat my coffee and drink
Milk with cornflakes
The sun don't really shine on you

We can make you want these things
We'll make you believe that
This is all you really need

Everybody knows all the sexy bimbos
Are shopping for new clothes at the mall
You see, their clothes are obsolete
'Cause they bought them last week and
A bimbo's always what she wears

We can make you sexy and young
You're so sexy
Be someone new each day 'cause
You're really not much fun

They will cash in
I will feed
It's the American Dream
And if you aren't dreaming it right now
You will be dreaming it soon

Everybody knows that the best new music
Is what you see on M.T.V.
So if the girls don't have big boobs
And the singer's ugly too, well
There really isn't much to hear

You will be famous, we will be rich
We shall control your life
You will have the life
The life you wish

We will cash in
You will feed
It's the American Dream
And if you aren't dreaming it right now
You will be dreaming it soon
Track Name: For Love Press Here
For love press here
For love press here

For love press
Here and it's so clear that you're worth nothing on your own
And all those casual beauties are committed to destroy
Every hope that you might hope to be a member of their fleet
I say: who needs those stupid bitches?
Who needs this bottled shit?

Why don't you grasp on what
You're able to
Control and
Be astounded?

Why don't I just take
What I deserve?
Why not pretend
That we're in love?

Just log on and she'll be yours to
Overcome your every fear and
When reality fails to please
I will love you always
Just press here.
Track Name: Details
When consuming becomes consuming
A man becomes a canned sir
Within a canned soul
Tied down to a bar code
In a shopping cart
Alone, but accessorized

Joining us today on a one time only offer!

A bunny on the table
And she has a friend
Giggling and chuckling
And their ears are bent
A one eared hedgehog
And a straw made of duck
Two majestic dolphins
With a ribbon where they fuck

In a frantic mini market
On another shopping spree
Today I bought True Love™
Got another one for free
Through fractions of the air
Inside my empty cart
I stare into the void
And then open up my heart
Track Name: My Precious
In his bed he's trying
Every night not to dream
About her lying
Near him yet denying
That the hole in his life
Is growing day by day

Could I be the one to melt
The cold heart she broke to pieces?

Now my love is jaded
As the passage of time
Has all but faded
Once again sedated
As the reason to live
Is slipping from my grasp

Could you be my fountain of youth
The wine in the cup that's poisoned?

You release
You're drunken with lust and desire
Your lips are on fire
And your body
The sexual tension is burning
Entwined in yearning
You are my precious

Now the pain has ended
I am here be at piece
Your wounds are tended
Still my love's infected
By a stain that has dried
A scar that would not heal

You release
You're drunken with lust and desire
Your lips are on fire
And your body
The sexual tension is burning
Entwined in yearning
You are my precious

You are my precious
Love me tonight
Never leave
Track Name: Being with You
Being with you
Knowing love
Has nothing to do
With these things in the moments you are

Being with me
Knowing love
Has nothing to do
With these things in the moments I am
Being with you

Another cheap thrill
Some sexual satisfaction
For you to enjoy
I will leave the guilt
And various dirty feelings
For you to bear alone
And immerse myself
In the comforting emptiness

Being with you
Forgetting love
Had something to do
With these things in the moments
She was being with me
Track Name: Oh Waiter
Oh Waiter, Oh Waiter
I order, you cater
Mine is the job
To make everything right
A potion
A potion?
To set love in motion
I see in your menu
A special tonight

My love here is thirsty
His heart needs a drink
He isn't attracted
To you, but I think
A potion of loving
Would help him be needing?
Your loving hand feeding him
Just as before

Darling, please, don't fret
You might come back to me yet
There is hope yet still
I'll be waiting for you till
Your doubts are subdued
And your love renewed
Now I hesitate
Give me time, just wait
Track Name: In the Dream
Please, hold me close
Don't keep your arms away
Stay in bed a while
Place your head
Upon my chest
Don't be afraid
To fall asleep
And leave the world outside
For the world within us now

Ever after
We'll linger in the dream
In the dream
In the dream

Now, I'm inside
And I feel your warmth
Smell your scent
So sweet
I caress
Your skin
So soft

Don't you go shy
When we both know
That we were meant to be
In each other's arms tonight

Ever after
We'll linger in the dream
In the dream
In the dream
Track Name: Bartender
Bartender, Bartender
I offer surrender
Allow me to bath you in
Alcohol haze
Don't want *hic*, Don't want *hic*
Don't want to remember?
Oh saviour, provider of lichor
Be praised!

My belly is empty
Please fill it with beer
Genuine feelings are not welcome here!
Don't want *hic*, Don't want *hic*
Don't want to be sober!
You (I) want to be over with
Sorrows and fear
Track Name: Homecoming
Sleeping off some wine
Wake up feeling fine
On I slept off sleep
To finish off sleeping
The wine
The wine

Thus I dreamt a dream
This it did not seem
In this dream I dreamt
The dreaming was merely
A dream
A dream

You'll suffer my embrace
I'll gently stroke your face
Then yearn once more to taste
That feeling when I was
In love
In love

Tonight I was thinking how swiftly I've become so wretched
Since that fatal day we met
Being with you to forget
This longing burden buried breathing burning still

Tonight I remembered when first she laid her gaze
It blazed and made its home inside my heart
How could it be that she's you?
Now I have come home
Track Name: Dear
I don't believe you
I know you
I know your kind
One of the leaves
In autumn always passing by

You will deceive me
You'll fool me
You'll tell me lies
One of the jokes
Believing every word you say

I want to trick you
To show you
The pain I feel
One of the urges
I sometimes wish I never had

Don't look so lovely
You're ugly
Don't be so cute
One of the cats
Observing us with hungry eyes

Don't be my friend if you don't want my love
Don't let me wait if you don't want my hate
Don't be a coward
Don't be unkind
Don't be one of the absent of mind

You said you love me
You need me
You need my love
My love I give
My love you take and throw away

You will discard me
I'm nothing
I'm useless now
Pushed off the edge
The moment that you have your way

I want to love you
To kiss you
To hold you tight
You take my hand
Yet keep your distance somehow, why?

I thought I knew you
Your gestures
Your deep black eyes
Those little things
Those tiny things that drive me mad

Don't be my friend if you don't want my love
Don't let me wait if you don't want my hate
Don't be a coward
Don't be unkind
Don't be one of the absent of mind

You forgot
To give me back my heart
Since you've left
I can't lose this feeling
Dear... You are not my
Dear... and I'm not (I am) yours
Track Name: What's Real?
Dirty clothes and pizza cardboards scattered round my room.
Microchips of ones and zeros are all that's left of you.
Feelings burning towards my keyboard
Fingers can't express.
What's real?
What's real?

The door is locked, the window's shut from any sunlight spot.
The sunny garden where we kissed was made of tiny dots.
My memory is somehow written
Not inside my head.
What's real?
What's real?

You must exist, I order you to! Can't accept you're fake
Your smiling image on my screen is more than I can take
'Delete' button's ready
Any last words you might speak?
What's real?
What's real?
What's real?
What's real?

Don't log off
Don't leave me to die
Dear, I love you,
Some day, we'll be real.
Track Name: Some Day We Will Fall in Love
Some day our hands will join
And holding hands our fears subside
Our warmth flowing back and forth
From my hands to yours
From your hands to mine

To fill the places where fears like to hide
In sharing our warmth
Is the flame within
Against a darkness without
All we have to do
Is hold on
Hold on

Some day we will fall in love
