lyrics

​Words are burrowing
Worm holes in my brainsteam
I am dreading our thoughts mingling
And you don't even care
Your brainless muttering
Infecting everything
I'd like to keep for myself

Through the portals of your eyes
Comes the dawning insight
Our life was never mine or yours to own
(Realize you're always tied)
(to a shared mind)
(it's not your life)
The apocalyptic fear, now end is always near, please help me find the safest path home
(Realize) you're always tied
To the worlds shared mind

Always chattering
Always talking to you
You who always hears
But never makes a sound
Giants lumbering
Courageous slumbering
Just turn off the light and please let me sleep too

Through the portals of your eyes
Are the cold systemic lies
You tell yourself so you can sleep at night
While the soaring satellites
Divine the details of your life
Draw a thin conclusion of who you really are
(Realize) you're ways tied
To the worlds shared mind

Words are burrowers
Thought stealing couriers

Yeah the portals of your eye
Oh the dawning insight
You know our life was never mine or yours to own
(Realize you're always tied)
The apocalyptic fear, the end is always near, please help me find the safest path home
(Realize) you're always tied
To the worlds shared mind

Michael & the Slumberland Band Vancouver, British Columbia

You’ll hear the music of Michael & the Slumberland Band coming from the 3rd floor of a creaking 100 year old West End apartment on cold rainy nights. There, in the music room, surrounded by a collection of xylophones, broken chord organs, and ancient hand drums, Michael creates post-apocalyptic soundscapes with lyrics drawn from nightmares, influenced by equal parts horror, fantasy, and science. ... more
