about

"Beacon to Nowhere" takes a lyrical ride through politics, wishful thinking, liberties, pure nonsense, and the moments before one drifts off to sleep. With a a foot planted in prog-rock (and the other in an unidenified substance), this collection has it's share of twists, turns and suprises.

Track Name: Panic in the Beltway
Panic in the Beltway

Tell me can you hear it
Tell me can you feel it
Rising tide of truth to wash away their lies
A new direction
Re-found conviction
The blazing anger opens up our eyes

Panic in the Beltway
Cause the sheep are waking up
Send in the brute squad
Cause the slaves are rising up

They play distractions
To gauge reaction
Mind bending false flags to fill up your cup
Contestant winners
Celebrate the sinners
Who gives a shit now that the jig is up

Panic in the Beltway
Cause the sheep are waking up
Send in the brute squad
Cause the slaves are rising up
Track Name: Fight
Fight

The shreds of dignity in tatters on the ground
right next to justice, passed away without a sound
I choose to fight
I choose to fight

Look at the people, some no longer blind
It’s hard to stand up when prescriptions ease the mind
I choose to fight
I will fight
Track Name: Lullabye
Lullabye

I know that it’s getting late
I hear it so clear
In your sighs
So come to me little one
Here in my arms
Close your eyes

Feet dangle off the ground
Eyes next to mine
Dance around
Nothing can hurt you here
Nothing to fear
Lay your head down

Imagine what you will see as you fly through the night
No matter where you go, you’ll be all right

No need to worry now
I will be there
When you rise
So come to me little one
Here in my arms
Close your eyes
Imagine what you will see as you fly through the night
No matter where you go, you’ll be all right
Track Name: Nonsense
Nonsense

One bright day in the middle of the night,
Two dead boys got up to fight.
Back-to-back they faced one another,
Drew their swords and shot each other.
One was blind and the other couldn't see,
So they chose a dummy for a referee.
A blind man went to see fair play,
A dumb man went to shout "hooray!"
A deaf policeman heard the noise,
And came and shot the two dead boys.
A paralyzed donkey walking by,
Kicked the copper in the eye,
Sent him through a rubber wall,
Into a dry ditch and drowned them all.
(If you don't believe this lie is true,
Ask the blind man -- he saw it too!)
Track Name: Womb
Womb

In another time
In another place
Would it have been possible
Not to land on my face?
Show me the light and I’ll follow the beacon to nowhere

Wrap me up
In the cocoon
I’ve become too comfortable
To escape from the womb
My greatest fear is to awaken from my slumber

I may never open my eyes again

Pick me up
Then lay me down
Take my head off
Spin it round and round
And when it stops will I see the direction to somewhere?

I may never open my eyes again
If I never open my eyes again
