The Madman Chronicles Chapter 3: Emerge and See
This album is the third release and marks a bit of a departure, all but two tracks are instrumentals. For a very interesting review of this cd, check out Lester Alfonso's write up in his blog. I would like to encourage remixes and explorations by other audio artists, if you decide to release/perform your remix/remake commercially, drop over to Jamendo, from there you can easily purchase a license, or contact me directly and see what we can work out. If you upload a remix to the Net, send me a link...
You can grab the album from here: The Madman Chronicles.
Not The Time This is not the time Leave yourself behind When will we ever learn We are not what we (y)earn Time to find a better way Keep the dogs at bay Imagination spins these little fantasies. Wrapped in grandeur and capped by ego. Daring to hope in desperate defiance. Refusing to submit to the overwhelming apathy, that threatens to entomb the creative force within me. Ego becomes savior and slayer, raising the energy, then pushing it down again, dancing with the flame that gives it life. Fearful and ecstatic. Swirling circles. Loosing myself then finding it again. Pushing out and holding in, riding the paradox. The elephant laboriously plunders across this plain, a reminder of the mundane. An awkward sadness pushes a smile across the mask, hinting at the sweet sorrow lurking in the depths. The fertile compost, feeding the growth that makes me strong. ---------------------------------------------------- Just Because You Say It Just because you say it Doesn't make you mean it This is what you've got to do Live your life like it's coming true Something happened an age ago Seperated us from what we know Entered into the nightmare dream Dancing with this great machine Soul is struck by atrophy Tearing apart our will to be There's no savior to be found As our dreams go underground Vision is lost to the brightest light Blinding us to our second sight Primitive gesture with a broken soul Points the direction to where we are whole All around, the chaos of power tries to hold some control, to sum the toll, of the infinite. Pulling demons from the fire, giving rise to this dark empire. The subtle shift, from the minds knowing to the hearts understanding. Stepping out of the chains of regret into some semblance of clarity in being. Here I stand, the hills and trees around me, the ground below me and the sky above. I look out to the stars too distant to ever reach, but feel my soul drawn into their eternal discourse.
