Massimo Really terrific psychedelic pop music. Great vibe, songs and production. Multidimensional yet coherent across the record, noisy yet distinct, neither retro nor too steeped in current sounds. Oh and it's 24bit, so that's nice ;-) Favorite track: Tournament II.

Track Name: Darkness Repeats
I can count
everything as experience.
But sometimes
I just can’t get over it,
I can’t get away.
I have this history I know.
I have this history I know
I have, I have.
And I love, this history I know.
I love this history I know
I have, I have.
Because
darkness repeats,
darkness repeats.
But I don’t know
when I’ll fall asleep again.
Darkness repeats.
Track Name: At Night In Chinatown
Under the gate
into the heart
of an old place
I am drawn.
Who calls so loud?
I see your mouth
is open.
Your lies are
so long,
so long,
so long.
Who can believe
in fantasy
or anyone?
When you are scared,
when you are bored,
do what you wish
follow your bliss.
I’m still alive.
The sky is clear.
You scared the shit
out of me.
When I am bored,
when I am scared,
do what I wish
follow my bliss.
Do what I wish
follow my bliss.
Track Name: Queen of Shapes
All the time I am tryin’
to forget,
but my heart
has different plans.
It remembers the day
at night,
and my dreams
are full of life.
In the night trees
the night trees,
the night trees,
the night trees.
Nothing lost,
everything
transforming.
And tonight I am longing
to be best,
and lay
my faults to rest.
A grain of sand in
my hand.
I will climb the highest.
Climbing a tree,
easy to see.
None as tough as me.
None as good as me.
None as beautiful.
Nothing lost,
everything transforming.
Nothing is lost,
everything transforming.
Track Name: The Many Colored Death
Sometimes,
I give the impression
that I don’t
think about life.
I don’t want to create,
I want to explore.
Don’t show me a palace,
show me a door.
Oh, the lion
came to eat my body
but he can’t
swallow my soul.
Take my hand
and tell me I should follow
for as far as I can go.
And so no,
I don’t want to go home
not yet.
I only got here,
I don’t want it to end.
So no,
don’t make me go home,
not yet.
Because,
It’s so beautiful
and so frightening.
We see a fire
burn on the horizon,
was the woods
the night before.
The smoke’s a ladder
rising up to heaven
but it’s not
what we’re walking towards.
Because, no,
we don’t want to go home,
not yet.
We only got here,
we don’t want it to end.
So, no,
don’t make us go home,
not yet.
Because,
It’s so beautiful
and so frightening.
This is the furthest
that I’ve ever seen.
Doors are up and down the hall.
Wonder what’s inside them all.
Doors that lead to anywhere,
got to ABC what’s there.
Got to ABCDecide,
where’s a door I haven’t tried?
ABCDEast to west,
Going on an Alphaquest.
Track Name: Ivory Tower
In the myst that rises up,
when the morning hits the water,
of the man-made river
that used to be
where I lived.
‘Till I took a walk outside.
I found a door
that the river
washed up one day.
It doesn’t open in
the usual way.
Rusted shut
and worn by water,
slick to my touch.
Must have been
floating out there
for years.
I wanted nothing more.
I could have stayed forever
on the banks of the city
carving steps
into the slope.
But when I had to leave,
I left a lot behind.
Heavy rain came,
washed my things away.
What if I never
see them again?
I know there’s more
to do.
I’ll open.
There’s further to go.
I found a door
that the river
washed up one day.
It doesn’t open in
the usual way.
Rusted shut
and worn by water,
slick to my touch.
Must have been
floating out there
for years.
Track Name: Tournament I
I wasn’t on time
when I showed up.
Skipped the line,
moved straight
through the crowd, and
mayhaps made
fools of all them.
Then I heard the horns call.
Then I heard the horns call.
Some of you traveled very far.
The tournament’s about to start.
So, celebrate the love,
celebrate the love,
celebrate the love.
I want to be high
in the sky box.
Yet I run loops on the field, and
wait for my time to ascend.
Till I hear the horns call.
Till I hear the horns call.
Wish yourself up to the top.
Don’t ever ask how much it costs.
And you just go,
and you just go,
and you just go,
and you just go.
Celebrate the love
Celebrate the love
Celebrate the love
I was on the rise,
rising with the tide.
Track Name: Tournament II
Feel the love
lifting the waves up.
To the moon,
swim for your honor.
Warriors
who don’t want to give up.
All of them
drown in water.
Track Name: Deadman I. Xayide
Don’t think about tomorrow,
Just be happy you’re not dead.
And that you’re not evil hearted,
you’re just fucked up in the head.
And when madness comes around,
tries to glue you to your bed.
Don’t think about your shadow
or the way your move your tongue,
now it’s an echo on the sidewalk
and you don’t like what you’ve done.
You are tied to a deadman,
he wants to pull you down.
I would face 1000 knives
if it meant staying alive.
You are tied to a deadman,
he wants to pull you down.
You think your crazy’s more than
some regular Charlie Brown.
He stuffs you in his minivan,
he drives you outside town,
he’s tied together your hands
can’t roll your window down.
He dressed you like a trash can,
to suck that garbage down.
Disposed of your attention span
to make you stick around.
I would face 1000 knives
if it meant staying alive.
There’s no trouble I can’t see it.
None of that could ever kill me.
Sitting where you landed
put your fingers to the ground.
Touch is the sensation that proves
your right to be around.
When they make you leave your home
and you’re scared of what you’re told,
don’t think about your future
or how you have lost control.
Track Name: Deadman II. The Starcluster
Please don’t ask me to leave.
Track Name: Deadman III. Battle
(Josh Stephens narrative)
It’s actually, what’s funny is,
the day I found out that I had
graduated High School I took
off work and went out drinking.
And, uh, I woke up early, yeah, I
was doing the dishes and the
lights flickered, and there was
a huge explosion. So I ran
outside to see what it was. And,
uh, I noticed the sky was a
greenish-red color. It was weird.
And, uh, I go to the front of my
building and I look around, and
I didn’t notice anything. Then I
see a bolt of lightning strike
accross the street. So I realized
I had walked into an electrical
storm. And, uh, I turned to go
back inside, and I looked above
our building, and it was arking,
the lightning started to ark
over my building. And the arking
was so bright it literally burned
my eyes. I could feel it. And as I
started to run towards the building
I felt static electricity starting to
come up through my body. And
lightning struck the building
right next to mine and actually
cracked the gas lamps. The
lightning clapped and the little
windows of the lamps ...
Track Name: Old Emperors
I know you think you’re alone.
I know you think you’re alone!
Well I’ve got something to show you.
City of the old emporers,
they used to have a love for all letters.
There are 25 for english words,
but there’s nothing to say.
Everybody’s got a couple lines,
everyday they try to memorize.
They don’t know the reason or the rhyme,
but they like the sound.
Why are you so surprised?
Been this way 100 years.
Don’t you know
that you look funny
when you run away.
City of the lost emporers,
gotta build a wall to hold them in.
1000 years of little accidents,
can’t let them get out.
When you break them down
to little parts.
The shattered bony bits
of who they are.
They are start to look
a lot alike,
and a lot like you.
Please don’t be so surprised
this is just the way things are.
Don’t you know
that you look funny
when you run away.
If you go, you’ll be back.
Can’t escape your life’s path.
Don’t you know
that you look funny
when you run away.
Please don’t be so surprised
this is just the way things are.
Don’t you know
that you look funny
when you run away.
If you go, you’ll be back.
Can’t escape your life’s path.
Don’t you know
that you look funny
when you run away.
Track Name: Ready To Feel Good Again
Warm brick porch,
don’t ask me anything.
Just lay your path
behind my back.
I am ready to feel good again.
I am ready to feel good again.
House in the distance,
don’t tell me what to do.
Just be my friend
behind my back,
on the horizon.
I am ready to feel good again.
I am ready to feel good again.
Try to hit it home
that I’m going on my own.
Try to hit it home
so I walk out in the cold.
Try to hit it home
that I’m going on my own.
Try to hit it home
so I walk out in the cold.
Try to hit it home
that I’m going on my own.
Try to hit it home
so I walk out in the cold.
Reminds me of the winter
spent outside by the fire
alright, alright, alright,
alright, alright, alrght.
I am ready to feel good again.
I am ready to feel good again.
I am ready to feel good again.
I am ready to feel good again.
Track Name: Tranceforming
Oh honey,
why’d you want me
to be happy?
I never did.
Oh, honey,
if you only
knew the old days
were gone
for good.
Without your past
you can’t expect to
deserve a future.
Those who know
know the nothing
grows everyday.
We should be transforming.
We should be transforming.
Oh honey,
why’d you want me
to be happy?
I never care.
What promise
did they offer
for you to stay
the way you are?
Can anything
be worth so much
you refuse to leave it?
Even if it means
the end of your life?
Without your past
you can’t expect to
deserve a future.
Those who know
know that nothing
grows everyday.
We should be transforming.
We should be transforming.
Transforming.
Transforming.
Transforming.
Oh honey,
why’d you want me
to be happy?
I never did.
Oh, honey,
if you only
knew the old days
were gone
for good.
Transforming.
Track Name: Starheart
Try too hard
now look what you did,
a slipping point.
Like you don’t
believe anything’s
predictable.
Do you
stay true
to you?
Got a star
inside your heart,
it never feels
at home.
Wants to go
somewhere wonderful,
a place that
you don’t know.
Do you
stay true
to you?
Blast off and let it take you.
And in time it can change you.
Not the person you were,
nor who you are now.
You want to open up,
and come back down to earth.
You seem so ordinary,
but so true.
Track Name: 24 Hour
The heat has melted you
into parts.
And now you can choose
who you are.
Clouds go by
behind houses on a hill.
I see you getting a feeling.
Can you share it with me?
Have you thought about it?
Does it make you laugh?
It’s so rare to see
early morning.
We all want to sleep
and nothing wake us.
You are how you were
at the start.
Swiming to the place
in my eyes.
Golden eyed fishes,
made of wishes.
It’s so rare to see
early morning.
We all want to sleep
and nothing wake us.
It’s so rare to see
early morning.
We all want to sleep.
The 7 of wands
struggles on,
overcome.
The weakness
is valor.
It’s trying
but it’s not enough.
You are how you were
at the start.
