about

Every single thing on this record was either done or conceptualized by us whether it be the writing, recording, mixing, or cover art concept of this album. We've learned along the way that if you want something done, you have to do it yourself and this is the result of our efforts. It was an intense process with a lot of trial and error involved but it definitely made us appreciate the process that much more. It has taken us four months to write, rehearse, and record this album and we're very excited to share it with you all. Read through the liner notes, the lyrics, and thanks for the support!

Track Name: Beginning the Dynamite Era
Will we hold on or fall down, are we prepared?
To stay alive, our problem - we're not aware
of who we are, regardless
Why should we care?
This paradise was contrived and we set our eyes
to something that wasn't there

Our whole lives wasted
We never traced it
Back to ourselves, back to the choices made
Our whole lives wasted
We never faced it
Not by ourselves, not with the same mistakes

And every morning, I wake up with the sudden threat
Of death and failure, my mind it caters
To thoughts that never end
Well, I'm looking for a brighter side of things
The clouds with silver lining
but I'm afraid I'll never find them
Among the thunderstorms that hide them

All is vanity
We've never been given so much control
We're taking this for granted
This is the reason why we panic

Our whole lives wasted
We never traced it
Back to ourselves, back to the choices made
Our whole lives wasted
We never faced it
Not by ourselves, not with the same mistakes

Isn't it interesting, how a culture of rugged individualism
Rarely accepts responsibility for their own decisions?
Instead they chose to levy the blame on an outside force
Whether it's God, government, destiny or chance
You have no one to blame but yourself
Track Name: Tragedy of the Commons
It's a culture-bound phenomenon
To prove one's worth above the others
A dog-eat-dog world, run for cover

Where do you stand?
Where do you fit in the grand scheme of things?
How do you find, your own piece of mind?

Our actions show how much we overcompensate
But we need to belong cause we fear being alone
This worlds been changing faster than we've ever wanted
Does it really feel like home? Well, we fear being alone

The sudden decline of moral fabric
The wars that were won through Cold War tactics
Progressive thought, confess to God
that it's the changing of our times

Where do you stand?
Where do you fit in the grand scheme of it?
How do you find, your own piece of mind?

Well I know the future is frightening
But it's all we'll ever see
To fight for the counter-productive
It doesn't make much sense to me
Yeah I know the future is frightening
that's all it will ever be
To fight for something that's destructive
It doesn't make much sense to me
Where do stand?
Where do you fit when there's no benefit
And you're left with nothing
The choice is up to you
and after that you're through
