Track Name: Outlands
OUTLANDS

It starts here
With a different train of thought too strong to be derailed

Collect yourself
and lets slip away in search of untapped trails

A bleak expanse
Filled with broken wills surround us from all sides

Overt your eyes
Or remain with the herd till the four horseman arrive

One careless glance
And we're dragged back
Don't let inherent fears distract

For this perception I would give everything

Hold onto me
As we push ahead through a land that's been bled dry

That seamless zone
Where horizon blends with sky is set within our sights

This harsh terrain
Begins to change
And along the way we'll do the same

For this perception you must give everything

Up ahead lies our sacred place
Escape this godforsaken waste
Salvation waits to be embraced
Where thoughts may breathe in shielded grace

It's not too far
It's not too far
It's not too far

It's near

Blink and you'll see
Discoveries
That our restless souls will soon achieve

For this perception we must give everything

For this perception we will give everything

Up ahead lies our sacred place
Escape this godforsaken waste
Salvation waits to be embraced
Where thoughts may breathe in shielded grace

Up ahead lies our sacred place
Escape this godforsaken waste
Salvation waits to be embraced
Where thoughts may breathe in shielded grace

It's not too far
It's not too far
It's not too far

We're here

Track Name: Hedonist Blues
HEDONIST BLUES

I've embraced a new philosophy, that sets free
The shame we're taught to feel I've now released
It's not for others to define
Their narrow burdens are not mine
Or their hypocritical beliefs, they've ceased

The moral crime
Would be to fall in line

There are countless pleasures to pursue, pursue
Yet the years we're given are too few, too few
Shrug off doubt, step up, and seize this day, this day
And take it in before it slips away, away

Where instinct and imagination goes, who knows
But where it leads, I'm sure to follow close
The sex, the arts, the sights and sounds
Profane to sacred, all that surrounds
I'll search all avenues till they're exposed, exposed

To guide this lust
In passion I will trust

There are countless pleasures to pursue, pursue
Yet the years we're given are too few, too few
Shrug off doubt, step up, and seize this day, this day
And take it in before it slips away, away

Simple content is not enough
The volume expelled must be turned up
It must be stressed
There are no fond regrets

There are countless pleasures to pursue, pursue
Yet the years we're given are too few, too few
Shrug off doubt, step up, and seize this day, this day
And take it in before it slips away, away...

Track Name: Chrome Hard Lover Man
CHROME HARD LOVER MAN

I am, I am
The chrome hard lover man

I am, I am
The chrome hard lover man

Making my presence known
Sleek and debonair with a thousand yard stare
Kerosene for blood
Testosterone levels cutting through the air

I'll bring you up to my speed
Adversity has hardened me to be this strong
From a baptism by fire
And a frigid cold reception given from then on

I am, I am
The chrome hard lover man

I am, I am
The chrome hard lover man

This frame was forged
Being punished by the elements of brutal life
But I shine this time
If you don't want to be a casualty then step aside

Just watch the woman fall
Overcome with ecstasy as I appear
I will handle them all
Cause what I can do in moments
Other men can't do in years

I am, I am
The chrome hard lover man

I am, I am
The chrome hard lover man

My mind's made up to stand my ground
Defiance is a science that I've got down

I've got a steel resolve

I am, I am
The chrome hard lover man

I am, I am
The chrome hard lover man...

Track Name: The Abstract Set
THE ABSTRACT SET

You're invited in
Because like me you seem
To be caught in between
Societies extremes

We are the dissidents
That weathered through the storm
Camaraderie has kept us warm
Now it's time to rise
We've slept too long

Prepare to galvanize
And soon it's realized

In the land we seek
Our minds run free
But first we force the key

And step inside
The outside

We're set to ride
Against the grain
The sparks that fly
Ignite the flame
That spreads so wide
It won't be tamed

Then hold court over
Those who would oppress
Lay down the law so
The persecution rests

The old system has stalled
From views sepia tinged
Denying all the progress made in
Existing on the fringe

This dark age intends
To blacken out our dawn
But foresight's looked upon
The renaissance that's coming on

Prepare to galvanize
And soon it's realized

As we walk we feel
Antique ideals
Shatter beneath our heals

Then step inside
The outside

We're set to ride
Against the grain
The sparks that fly
Ignite the flame
That spreads so wide
It won't be tamed

Then hold court over
Those who would oppress
Lay down the law so
The persecution rests

Step inside
The outside

We're set to ride
Against the grain...
