about

Feeling a little stuck on our home planet, we decided to use the power of space rock n roll to lift us into the universe in search of the energy tank of inspiration. Our debut album takes us on a journey to seek out all that the universe has to offer. The good, the bad, and the ugly. Along the way, we will find other worlds. Some little, some big. All in our search for the source of all energy. Give it a listen, and join us in space!

Track Name: Quantum Spacesuit
In the year 20,00X...

A boy and his dog, fed up with the world in which they lived,
Decided it was time to leave their planet behind...

On a never ending quest for new horizons,
They’ve tipped the balance in the quantum fabric of space and time...

The tides of dark matter have taken over
And they have fallen into the abyss...
Track Name: Stuck
I’ve been trudging around downtown
Can’t seem to get around like I want to
I don’t like being bound, or stuck to the ground

Unmoving familiar faces
Stumbling right through the small spaces
My hands are bound, and I’m stuck on the ground

I’m all up in my brain and searching
Tryin’ to find...
Looking for the answers and going
Out of my mind...
Bound to the earth, desires in the sky,
I’m itching to groove...
I’ve gotta get up off the ground, and make a move

I’ve been fastened down to the pavement
Reaching out but I just can’t take it
I don’t like being bound, or stuck to the ground

Time’s tied up, break into a fit
Try so hard and sometimes fake it
My hands are bound, and I’m stuck on the ground

I’m all up in my brain and searching
Tryin’ to find...
Looking for the answers and going
Out of my mind...
Bound to the earth, desires in the sky,
I’m itching to groove...
I’ve gotta get up off the ground, and make a move

Start a new groove, get up and move
Start a new groove, get up and move
Leaving this planet behind
Track Name: Jet Pack Juice
I need a rocket to fly me into outer space
I don’t care too much for the human race
The jet pack juice isn’t good enough, I need some thrusters to get up
I need some horsepower, to get me off this rock

I’m gonna go, go far away
I’ve gotta go, I just can’t stay
Please just don’t get in my way

I’m gonna build a rocket, I’ve got the blueprints in my brain
I’ve collected all the parts, and they’re welded to the frame
I’m ambitious, they’re superstitious, they call me crazy and insane
But from the looks of it, their frame is kind of lame

I’m gonna go, go far away
I’ve gotta go, I just can’t stay
Please just don’t get in my way
My way…

Conventional vehicles don’t cut it anymore
Foot on the fuel injector, blast through the door
Thank you Major Tom, this countdown’s engaged
Don’t need no ground control, it’s time to fucking RAGE...
Track Name: Messing With Your Head
Brain’s in zero gravity, no signs of life in front of me
I need you to make fun of me, eyes are blind and I can’t see
Pinch a nerve, pinch some skin, space cadet I’m wrestling
Blast into the universe, throat is strugglin’ with a thirst

Never fret...
Horse behind the cart
It’s spike, then set!
Never fret...

We’re just trying to mess with your head
Proving that it’s full of lead
We’re just trying to mess with your head

Observing skies overhead, signs that point can be read
Always careful where I tread, the hunger now it’s getting fed
Pinch a nerve, pinch some skin, space cadet I’m wrestling
Blast into the universe, throat is strugglin’ with a thirst

Never fret...
Horse behind the cart
It’s spike, then set!
Never fret...

We’re just trying to mess with your head
Proving that it’s full of lead
We’re just trying to mess with your head

We’re just trying to mess with your head
Track Name: Mars in the Limelight
Propelled by light, compelled by sights
The energy pushes you forward, don’t look back...

Mars is in the limelight
And you can’t stop it
It's set its sights
It’s a fight for your life
No flight, no flight, no flight
Prepare to fight

The wind is blowing black as night now
It’s stirring up quite a fright
Glue yourself down, attention is paid
You can’t get away, get away

Mars is in the limelight
And you can’t stop it
It’s set its sights
It’s a fight for your life
No flight, no flight, no flight
Prepare to fight

Drawn into conflict...
No one’s there as you look to the side
Not even with peripheral eyes
Not even with peripheral eyes

Mars is in the limelight
And you can’t stop it
It’s set its sights
It’s a fight for your life
No flight, no flight, no flight
Prepare to fight
Track Name: Tazmily's Money
In the town square, on the islands of nowhere
It’s a peaceful place, no one bothers with the rat race
Then they infiltrate, the swine and a man full of hate
They introduce happiness, with a box and a loaded kiss

Tazmily, you don’t need the pig’s money
You just have to learn to stand on your own

Over time now, the village has sure grown
But at what price, happiness we should have known
When they infiltrate, the swine and a man full of hate
They destroyed peace of mind, maybe one day we’ll still find...

Tazmily, you don’t need the pig’s money
You just have to learn to stand on your own

In the town square, on the islands of nowhere
Oh what it used to be, a place to live peacefully
So they crushed a great place, they changed it just to taste
They destroyed happiness, with a snout and a loaded kiss

Tazmily, you won’t fight the pork army
You’ll just have to learn to take back your home

Infiltration by the snout, find a way to throw them out
Infiltration by the snout, find a way to throw them out
Down with the snout, take them out
Down with the snout, take them out
Track Name: Sew Its Seams
Can’t stop, you got too caught up in the festivities... oh please
Try again to prove your ridiculous hypothesis... dear me
You say you’re getting closer, you say you’re growing taller
Cleave the leash, cut loose, misuse, and waste yourself some more

If you’re discreet, your threads won’t deplete
Tell yourself it’s alright, right before you unravel
Had a fit to get stitched up
Now you’re falling apart again at the seams...
Glad you’re not on my team

Can’t stop you got caught again, this time you’re gonna jump right off
Let yourself get dragged down into the flames, just to get burned again
You say you’re getting closer, you say you’re growing taller
Shed responsibility enjoy the ride and waste yourself some more

If you’re discreet, your threads won’t deplete
Tell yourself it’s alright, right before you unravel
Had a fit, had to get stitched up
Falling apart at the seams...
Glad you’re not on my team

Give me the needle...give me the thread...
I’ll put you back together again
Give me the needle...give me the thread...
I’ll put you back together again

If you’re discreet, your threads won’t deplete
Tell yourself it’s alright, right before you unravel
Had a fit, had to get stitched up
Falling apart at the seams...
Glad you’re not on my team
Track Name: Fully Clothed
Fleshed out...Fleshed out...
Fleshed out...Fleshed out...

Shouldn’t walk around without clothes
Sneaking by on tip toes
Now you’re exposed, the info’s disclosed
It’ll be tomorrow before you remember making any foes
Now you’re exposed, the info’s disclosed
It’ll be tomorrow before you remember making any foes

Pop a pill, sit and chill
Wear your other face and cut to the chase
What you say... is never what you mean...
What you mean...

Getting by while fully clothed
Entitlement sure was betrothed
Now you’re exposed, the info’s disclosed
It’ll be tomorrow before you even awaken I s'pose
Now you’re exposed, the info’s disclosed
It’ll be tomorrow before you even awaken I s'pose

Pop a pill, sit and chill
Wear your other face and cut to the chase
What you say... is never what you mean...
What you mean...

Green is the color of your skin
Green is the color of your skin
Fleshed out...Flesh out...
Fleshed out...Flesh...

Pop a pill, sit and chill
Wear your other face and cut to the chase
What you say... is never what you mean...
What you mean...
Track Name: Spills
I cannot pretend that I like your presence
To me it seems like there’s a lack of substance
Floating around the ship in zero g
All I can see is that your glass is empty

Shattering on the floor
Your glass, it breaks
Clean up your spill while you can
Before the spill seeps through to the core...

Now that I pretend that I like your presence
You take advantage and you dig your claws in
Deeper with every single breath you take
The decision’s mine, it is not yours to make

Shattering on the floor
Your glass, it breaks
Clean up your spill while you can
Before the spill seeps through to the core...

Useless...Worthless...Useless…To you...
We’re all...
Useless...Worthless...Useless…To you...

Shattering on the floor
Your glass, it breaks
Clean up your spill while you can
Before the spill seeps through to the core...
Track Name: Another Shore
Waves rolling in and out ever since the sea was born…
She was torn... from it
A dream drifting radically, away on the waves…
On the way...

Washed up on an unknown shore
Brought by forces to do their chore
A deed which they cannot perform
A task forlorn...forlorn...

Chasing after...even if it means drowning…
In the deep sea...
We’ll see, we’ll see...
Chasing after...even if it means drowning…
In the deep sea...
We’ll see, we’ll see...

Piecing the story together from the scraps of old… legends told
Long after the first page was torn...she was born...to live

Washed up on an unknown shore
Brought by forces to do their chore
A deed which they cannot perform
A task forlorn...forlorn

Chasing after...even if it means drowning…
In the deep sea...
We’ll see, we’ll see...
Chasing after...even if it means drowning…
In the deep sea...
We’ll see, we’ll see...

Found…drowned...
We must be... We must be...gone

We're still here...We're still here...
We're still here...We're still here...

Found…drowned...
She can’t be... she can’t be...gone
Found…drowned...
We must be... We must be...gone
Track Name: Don't Mind
I said I met you at dawn in the control room
And I left you Friday night out on the rock
I left you high and dry there on that hell hole
But I’ll never leave my love like this again
I’ll never leave my love like this again

I woke up in the morning just to find you
Strung out and half asleep in the bed
But when I tried to find the time
You just came and blew my mind
And now I have to leave my love alone again
Yeah, now I have to leave my love alone again

I don’t mind
Got no time
If you left, you know it wouldn’t matter anyway

I’ve come to find
You’re not my kind
But I guess you'll have to do for today

I saw you in the hull the other morning
You were coon eyed and looking not so bright
When I tried to calm you down
All I could do was frown
And I knew I was in for a fight
It was sure to be a long damn night

I found you in the corner you were crying
And I tried to ask you what the hell was wrong
When you turned, right then I learned
But I could not find the words
I simply knew the love I found was gone
This time I knew the love I had was gone

I don’t mind
Got no time
If you left, you know it wouldn’t matter anyway

I’ve come to find
You’re not my kind
But I guess you'll have to do for today

You’re fighting for your life in a bubble
Air tight and about to lose sight
Can’t hear the words that I am sayin’
Black out, float out, and it’s “good night”

You’re fighting for your life in a bubble
You’re fighting for your life in a bubble
Track Name: Monocle Maniacs
The way forward is always up
Obscured by ignorance some don’t see
You have to chase your dreams vertically

You see through one eye only
When you run into trouble
Don’t call out for me
Please just adjust your eyepiece accordingly
Accordingly...

Lift off...
Road block head is in the way
Gonna go straight through no matter what they say

You see through one eye only
When you run into trouble
Don’t call out for me...
Please just adjust your eyepiece accordingly
Accordingly...

Let your other eye wander
You’ll find yourself lighter
Light enough to float away
To float away

Cover the distance
Sickened by the arrogance
You can’t hear through the dissonance
Track Name: Black Hole
Erased... by the human race
Erased... by the human race

Keep your mind in check
Despite its defects
No telling what we’ll see
Now that we’re free...Now that we’re free...

Out in this ocean
Of stars and space
Traveling ever so further
Leaving no trace...Leaving no trace…

Sucked through the unknown
To another time and place
Can’t wait to see
More of this space…

Focusing on the prize
No matter what the size
This source of energy
Is just a tease...It tries please…

Once we found the source
We set a new course
Inspired by what we see
It’s time to flee...it’s time to flee...

Came from the earth
Vanished in outer space
No longer a part
Of the human race

Erased by the human race
Erased by the human race

Black hole has found its course
Ripped apart by the tidal force
It's too late to postulate
The fate of existence in this place

We're gonna be...

Erased by the human race
Erased by the human race
