James Griffin Great vibes on this one. Prog with a nice touch of stoner rock, great stuff. Favorite track: Desert Sands.

Track Name: Federal Offense
Drivin through the city with my kitty by my side
a beauty on the sidewalk draws my sympathetic eye
I know you know I love you and I stare with no intent
still you make the case that it’s a federal offense
no I never want to be on trial like that again
I didn’t know what I was doing would be the end of our romance
I didn’t know what I would do - to you - would be a federal offense
you know I work my ass off even staying overtime
the world is on my shoulders I’ve got problems on my mind
so if I want to meet my friends and have a drink or two
I should not need my riot gear when I get back to you
no I never want to be on trial like that again
I didn’t know what I was doing would be the end of our romance
I didn’t know what I was doing would ever need no second chance
I didn’t know what I would do - to you - would be a federal offense saturday you ordered me to pick you up at five
I showed up at six fifteen just glad to be alive
I got into a car wreck on the other side of town
you called in the bloody SWAT team to come and take me down
no I never want to see your pretty face again
I didn’t know what I was doing would be the end of our romance
I didn’t know what I didn’t know what I would do - to you -
would be a federal offense.
Track Name: The Vortex
It’s more than a feeling on the line
you wonder if you are gonna survive
no one has ever been this desperate before
they want to sentence you to die
time doesn’t chase you
time will erase you
don’t run for shelter
no helter skelter
if you believe it
you can achieve it
the eye of the storm will suround you and blow them away
swirling around inside your mind
the vortex electrical divine
look for the answers you can weather any storm
you’re gonna make it through this time
time doesn’t chase you time will erase you
don’t run for shelter
helter skelter
if you believe it
you can achieve it
the eye of the storm will suround you and blow them away
it’s late in the evening when the feeling comes around
listen to the sound
feel the energy from deep within your soul
and live for rock and roll!
Track Name: The Positive Side, pt.2
Walk on water but don’t look down
question your luck and you’re sure to drown
look forward to tomorrow with no future plans
convince yourself that you don’t understand
bury your feelings the few that remain
ignore the truth to avoid the pain
keeping the candle lit in the hurricane
she hurt you no one’s to blame
it happens all the time it’s just part of the game
she hurt you learn how to forgive
it’s the only way to live.
Track Name: Time Unwritten
We’ve all heard the stories over and over
the history written not stories but true
and the changes we’ve endured that is we as mankind
are so many so much is yet unsung
we may be the people of time unwritten when the future finally rolls around our plastic defenseless world may soon be over
and all thats left of us will be buried six feet underground.
Track Name: Desert Sands
You wake up in the morning realize a haunting new reality
dreams had given you shelter
from the endless sands that stretch as far as you can see
your memory is fading you can’t recall exactly how you’ve gotten here fingers burrow in the sand the sun is rising shadows slowly dissapear
on the wasteland
you can hear them
they await you
on the wasteland
you rise up to your feet again start another quest survive another day
time is only memories confused and re-arranged and fading on the way
to your unknown destiny
you race toward mirages
visions sent by demons to break your spirit on the way
laying bets on every breath
they laugh and throw the dice and play their cruel game
on the wasteland
you can beat them
they await you
on the wasteland
what can I say to you that no one else has ever said
our life is full of happiness and sorrow
the pain you feel today will surely pass away
and everything will be alright tomorrow
