Paradigm Shift

Lyrics by John Tumminia

 

Facing the day ahead

Thoughts running through my head

I’m seeing the shifting paradigm and asking why

 

Why then on this brand new day you’ve nothing to say?

 

Everything I thought to know

Everywhere I thought I’d be

Everything is turned and reckless

 

Fight fire with fire - Reject the denial

As empires conspire - To call us enemies

When logic is broken - With utter nonsense spoken

The history is chosen - We have the remedy

 

Racing to stay ahead

As synthetic blood I’ve bled

Receiving transmissions just in time – a crimson sky

 

Why then on this brand new day you’ve nothing to say?

 

Everything I thought to know

Everywhere I thought I’d be

Everything is turned and reckless

 

Fight fire with fire - Reject the denial

As empires conspire - To call us enemies

When logic is broken - With utter nonsense spoken

The history is chosen - We have the remedy

 

Why then on this brand new day you’ve nothing to say? (2x)

 

Fight fire with fire - Reject the denial

As empires conspire - To call us enemies

When logic is broken - With utter nonsense spoken

The history is chosen - We have the remedy

 

Fight fire with fire - Reject the denial

As empires conspire - To call us enemies

When logic is broken - With utter nonsense spoken

Get ready the explosion - On this brand new day

Fragments as Illusion
Lyrics by John Tumminia

 

Movement on the horizon

Panic follows me here

Metallurgical daylight

By astronomical year

 

One move after the other

The onset of the illusion?

Even closer it nears

Is it just or slow deranging?

 

My eyes are open wide

But can I really see them?

Satellites?

 

I see something overhead

Fragments. Design. Secrets.

Why can’t I be able?   

 

Is it an omination?

Visions tend to betray

 

Animating the fragments

As refugees from a fall out

(In) passive matrix display

Is it just or slow deranging?

 

My eyes are open wide

But can I really see them?

Satellites?

 

I see something overhead

Fragments. Design. Secrets.

Why can’t I be able?

 

Superposition

A decoherence

A contradiction of interference

 

And so I’m asking

Why can’t I be able?  

Why can’t I be able?

My Metallic Dream
Lyrics by John Tumminia

 

My strength is running low

My strength is running low

My strength is running low

 

now can you hear the metallic sound around us?

now can you feel the metallic sound around us?

why can't you hear the metallic sound around us?

 

on and on and on and on it goes

all night

 

My strength is running low

My strength is running low

My strength is running low

 

now can you hear the metallic sound around us?

now can you feel the metallic sound around us?

why can't you hear the metallic sound around us?

 

why can't I dream

what is a dream

why can't I be

what is it to be

 

now can you hear the metallic sound around us?

why can't you hear the metallic sound around us?

 

when everything I fear is in my dreams

 

My strength is running low

My strength is running low

My strength is running low

 

now can you hear the metallic sound around us?

now can you feel the metallic sound around us?

why can't you hear the metallic sound around us?

Weightless
Lyrics by John Tumminia

 

Sometimes I feel like breathing, sometimes I wish I’d been born

Sometimes a strange addiction deadens the pain of it all

 

From the sky I see the sunrise ‘cause I’m weightless in your arms

 

And think of a new horizon far above that we have made

And beyond this new horizon the heavens are punctured and frayed

 

From the sky I see the sunrise ‘cause I’m weightless in your arms

 

And float along blackened silence all of your thoughts brought to bear

An innocence gone to violence peripherals no longer there

 

From the sky I see the sunrise ‘cause I’m weightless in your arms

 

An earth and moon will stay apart when gravity can fill the heart

Philosophies that call to mind a symptom of another kind of madness

So think of moments in the past like dust in rays of sun will dance

And leaves that float along the water winds will blow and all will offer

silence and pain

 

Sometimes I feel like breathing, sometimes I wish I’d been born

Sometimes a strange addiction deadens the pain of it all

 

From the sky I see the sunrise ‘cause I’m weightless in your arms

Synergy

Lyrics by John Tumminia

 

Sometimes when you look outside
When you think inside
And then all you see is

 

Veiled reflections of the way that thing should be and
When it’s wise we pause and test the concepts and we analyze
And it leads to why

 

An elemental feeling in a synergistic life
An elemental feeling in a synergistic life

 

The energy that is left behind
When the stars align
And it fills the mind with

 

Introspection of the thing that we perceive when
Inertia meets the sky and floats around you like a satellite
And it leads to why

 

An elemental feeling in a synergistic life
An elemental feeling in a synergistic life

 

And time goes on and on
And I go on and on

 

And time goes on and on
And I go on and on

Steampunk Highway
Lyrics by John Tumminia

 

I’m hanging on (driving to my downfall)

I’m hanging on (driving to my downfall)

In the middle of nowhere

The steam, the rotation

 

What I perceive

Design, deceive

 

Feels so cold

Feel so old

Feel so alone

 

I’m hanging on (driving to my downfall)

I’m hanging on (driving to my downfall)

In the middle of nowhere

The steam, the rotation

 

And I will grieve

And I believe

And I believe

Asymmetry
Lyrics by John Tumminia

 

The images are strange

Far beyond the range

Of prior understanding

 

 

[spoken]

and everything's wrong

and everything's changed

I don’t understand

 

And how must I look at myself

A shape so uncommon itself

Asymmetry lies at the heart

And boldly determines the start

 

The images are strange

Far beyond the range

Of prior understanding

 

 

[spoken]

and everything's wrong

and everything's changed

I don’t understand

 

I'm trying to look at myself

A new declaration itself

Asymmetry lies at the heart

And slowly it sets me apart

 

Instrumental Interlude

 

And now as I look at myself

A shape without logic itself

Asymmetry lies at the heart

It softly transforms into art
