Time and time again The absolute light, only a step away And I can only be But I could not understand
Daily routine predominates Busy lives flowing a normal course The sun is shining on a beautiful day But in an instant, thousands of voices are silenced On the one hand are those who mourn On the other are the ones who celebrate We are all in need of a way to handle tragedy But some obsess over escaping the pain To a point where they will follow anything Enter dogma and a question stirs to the front of the line Is this a recipe for more tragedy When people are forbidden from questioning authority? Is dogma good for humanity? Powerful greedy fools manipulate those who will follow anything Wielding peace and love to eliminate the infidels The witch hunt begins and the so-called saints torture And slaughter while evil feeds on hypocrisy Dogma prevents common sense, because no one can question an illogical sacred text The sands shift as we evolve, but some religious leaders seek control of humanity supposedly in the name of righteousness It results in rebellion against oppression Igniting flames soaring high into a blackened sky While blood is flowing a normal course Another chapter for history Where the horrors of war plant the seeds of future tragedy Overlapping lyrics: Time keeps passing, people keep judging Tell you how to live your life, fingers are pointing Conflict arises, damage provided Children screaming, murder and mutilation Peace and love to prevent future tragedy Or is this destructive portion integrated into the core of existence like a natural disaster? Wipe away the dead to make way for a new era of living? Will that new era continue to embrace dogma? Is dogma good for humanity?
Simple steps, lots of laughter while life leads me to a deeper goal Day by day, moments pass, the errors start to flow Things becoming more complex, the pressure builds, and I can feel the weight Irritation setting in, struggling to complete my daily requirements Let me rest, let me take a moment to gather myself Crying, I can't get out of bed, depression controls the time Panic knocking at my psyche, flooding strength is holding me down Entangled in a mess that I can't escape from Awaken refreshed, the metaphorical sun rises again Happy thoughts allow me to proceed to go about my business But the purity doesn't last long as dissonant thoughts arrive Apparent karma reduction, I am again led towards the profound Difficult times become the standard as I reach back for perfection But there's no turning around, the damage done, a paradox intersection Dying, broken, helpless, fallen beneath the ground, continue descending The ubiquitous dark clouds overwhelm me I've been here before, though feeling good, I notice a routine Fresh air to breath, beautiful surroundings, however I see A gentle breeze then carries a dark scent that gradually rolls in Can I transcend this loop? I must find a way to break free Panicking will never help, though I don't want to be here anymore Tragedy manipulates my perceptions while agony increasingly feeds Clawing at the heavy locked door, shrinking empty room lacks mercy Keeps me away from the glorious light that maybe lies on the outside of this loop
Alone, standing strong, falling down, I try to rise Heavy weight, I'm struggling to find, is this song done? I can cry to unwind, the sadness fluctuating, riding this raft Through the ocean pouring down into the depths of all Ailing, I try to cry out, but distorted, complaining, frustrating babble Trying to make a point, only to be cut down by bullshit Pointless existence in the objective truth Confused, I'm seeking refuge Happy for this, sad for that Wanting more, not wanting to forget what I have Blessed and cursed, one's treasure is another's crap As complex nature twists and turns Following patterns through random seeds created from themselves Flowing in and out, up and down (left and right), all around itself Where am I within this chaos organized to a level beyond my comprehension I keep reaching for the intangible And I keep reaching for the intangible And I keep reaching for the intangible And I keep reaching for the intangible (I just want to be free) And I keep reaching for the intangible (time and time again) And I keep reaching for the intangible (while it tears me apart) I keep reaching for the intangible And I keep reaching for the intangible Words behind the vocals at the end: Accidents distraction daily tension lonely isolation gross inebriation Thievery abduction greed corruption censorhip deception sexual repression Rape violation disease infection poverty oppression insanity depression Murder destruction war domination genocide frustration


This complex and over-mixed album can actually be summed up using only one word; frustration.

Despite that perhaps humorous fact (and the one in the form of a confession stating this album was over-mixed), I love this album (admittedly with extreme bias) that took me seven years to complete to my 'reasonable satisfaction'.

It's 100% brutally honest down to the tiniest sonic pressure, and the mixes push the listener away with intent to do so to create the cognitive dissonance matching my annoying frustration.

If you ever want to "catch a glimpse" of the brutal challenge I faced in learning how to engineer audio properly without a professional grade engineering environment, this album reveals that serious struggle.

Based upon the scientific absence of any objective boundary, space (including dimensionality) is logically energy (so sinusoidal btw).

Think oceanic dimensionality, relative to humanity.

T-DV explores that energy, usually in the name of mystery and surprise.
