muschiosauro Impressive stonerized prog sludge that constantly defies genre clichés, pairing a monolithic, swampy heaviness with exhilarating ideas, unexpected choices and loads of creativity. A striking album that grows after each listen. Favorite track: Lung Valley.

Somebody is watching, making a judgement on everyone Sense of intrusion, no personality anymore Sickening vision, is this what the purpose of life is for? Meet your maker, self creator Great pretender, true resenter Great resenter, true pretender There's no decision, choice has already been ripped away Safeguarded freedom, nothing but lies on a worthless page Meek your maker, self creator Put your time and faith in something that you thought was real Test of time Truth in lies Lies in truth Receive your life Receive your life Test of time Truth in lies Receive Your Life

They're riding protectors of the sun they're leaving a trail of hope Reliving the life they used to know, suppressing the memory With warning, an overpowerment, substandard second rate A promise, broken like a bone, dissolving this entity Sedated by the weight of the world and their success, I'm declining yet another Judging by the way they're gaining their success, I'm inclined to seek another Warning Taking money just like it was water from a well Stealing money, taking money just like it was water from a well

Share and we wallow in high sound Stare and we look up to high cloud We seek to follow the temple Bearing the form of riff demon Braving the portal for eons Starting how we end We're in glue, I'm alive Hearing you, only way that I know Sparking light towards throne of the Stahl Inhaling you as the wave brings the tide Warm and clear Walk he's here God is your god Blood is lust Feeling weed Blood run cold Blood is lust Feeling weed Dixie's weed

I'm in control, a psychedelic, conversation can become so difficult But I'm beginning to understand how to hold myself, just this ride I'm on a journey, just passing, got no time to stop and talk Plowing forward, head down, brace myself for anything I feel the symptoms coming, I feel the relaxation in my brain Sinking lower, meditate, the colours blend before my eyes My perception, sharp knife, senses working overtime A deeper recognition, a new perspective shedding new light Head down Head I'm in control, a psychedelic, conversation can become so natural And now I'm learning to understand how to hold myself just let it ride Head down Head Take me out, let them in, take them out, let me in Take me out, let them in, take them out, let me in You gotta I feel the symptoms coming, I feel the relaxation in my brain I feel the symptoms coming, I feel the relaxation again

I'm the one, steady like a mountain I won't hide, proud of my own meaning In my eyes, you won't find redemption Satisfied, rolling with the wave I've got my own sun in the sky My personal bearer of light Standing tall, always keeping grounded Inconsiderate nature, crashed out on the waves I've got my own sun in the sky My personal bearer of light Same, body, same, soul Nothing has changed I am the one, yes I am the one, mountain

Take and hone Rise inside Fields are home Where we lay Born and blessed Green takes flight Send us home Worlds away Sail and grow Deep inside The brave align Green we stay Leave me now Stray forward Forge a path Legacy

Incoming, just above the water Lord show me now, wrongs have taken over Secluded, unfrequented Well it's my choice now, I can do what I please There's a lot of pressure and it's all for nothing, so just let me be If I hear you speaking I'm going to let you know your words just wash right over me That breath your holding, why don't you let it go, open the ground up Swallow me It's all subsided now, I just can't keep my alignment When I hear you speaking, so forgetful, your words just freeze right in front of me That breath your holding, don't you let it go, open your mind to possibility Incoming just above the water Lord show me now, wrongs have taken over There's one thing I know now, I started dying the day I was born Running low

Chabal 05:33
And if your time was slowing how would you know Hidden message in your makers eyes You're just a broken promise, misguidance, another reason to believe in yourself Misconception. Why me? Wrong information. False impression. Disillusion. Such a common feeling, disappointment fills your eyes Still you reach for nothing, just to give meaning to life Well, one day this might just change. Yes, one day things might not be the same And if you stop running, concealing nothing from the lie behind your makers eyes A subsonic feeling tells you you're right. Seeking self belief with open mind Your time, your time Such a common feeling, disappointment fills your eyes Still you reach for nothing, just to give meaning to life Misconception. Wrong information Lost in translation and now you're right where you don't belong

Hot Priest 08:55
Led us away down the corridor, sat in your own utter silence In came the serpent with the wicked tongue, he said we were saved from all evil They lied to me I was too young to form opinions, fed to a world without meaning They lied to me. They locked me down and they fed shit to me I learned to reject anything that did not sit right with me. They lied to me I played along like a pessimist but I was not buying Live to rise, find your own way to fly They lied to me. They locked me down and they fed shit to me I learned to reject anything that did not sit right with me. They lied to me
