about

Inner Space Odyssey paints a potent portrait of a band coming to terms with the world around them, how that relates to their own lives and how to take it all into the future. It's a dance floor destroyer one second, and a headphone mind-melter the next, with the potential to expand consciousness like the most potent psychedelics, providing a path through the darkness for the cosmically lost. Listen to it, and take a journey of your own.

Track Name: Theft Of The Sky
Is this the cost of doing business?
The price seems a little high
You’ve built yourself quite the system
A money sun and you’re a satellite

Keep the dead trees in the ground, yeah
Keep them down deep in the ground
Oh bite your lip and just take care of it
Before we tear your castle down
Keep the dead trees in the ground, yeah
Keep them down deep in the ground
Your bottom line will take a hit
But just take care of it
Before we bring you suckers down

What a cheap trick to use tradition
As a reason not to change
When in fact you’ve got an addiction
Time to clean those junky veins

Keep the dead trees in the ground, yeah
Keep them down deep in the ground
Oh bite your lip and just take care of it
Before we tear your castle down
Keep the dead trees in the ground, yeah
Keep them down deep in the ground
Your bottom line will take a hit
But just take care of it
Before we bring you suckers down

Your promises, your promises,
Your promises, your promises
Your promises, your promises,
Your promises, your promises
Your promises, your promises,
Your promises, your promises
Don’t mean anything.
Track Name: Pictures To Burn
You’ve got the perfect excuse
How convenient
But the well has run dry
So excuse me if I’m not so lenient
Or obedient
I’ve got pictures to burn
And earth to turn

When you’re halfway between wolf and dog
When you’re halfway between father and sun
When you’re halfway between the night and the dawn
When you’re halfway between the moon and the sun

Oh here we go again
I guess I shouldn’t be surprised
But I warned you
That it would be different this time
Oh, but you’re in the know
And you’ve got the time
Well I’m playing for keeps
And you’re way out of line

When you’re halfway between wolf and dog
When you’re halfway between father and sun
When you’re halfway between the night and the dawn
When you’re halfway between the moon and the sun
Track Name: This Too Shall Pass
You and me aren’t going to last
This too shall pass
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh
Our bodies will decompose
While our children grow old Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh

Come and decay with me, yeah
Come waste away with me, yeah
We can rot together gracefully
Come disintegrate with me

The moss it will slowly spread
Until it swallows up our whole head Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh
Our problems will remain unsolved
And our hearts will just dissolve Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh
Come decompose with me
We’re leaves at the base of the tree
We’re salmon at the top of the stream
Come disintegrate with me

Come decompose with me
Come waste away with me
Come and decay with me
Come disintegrate with me
Come decompose with me
Come waste away with me
Come and decay with me
Come disintegrate with me

The leaves turn back to trees
The salmon return to the sea
Won’t you come decompose with me
Come return to dust with me
Come and decompose with me
Track Name: Serpentine
There’s inner space and outer space
Inner space and outer space
Inner space and outer space
Inner space and outer space

There’s inner space and outer space
Inner space and outer space
Inner space and outer space
Inner space and outer space

I’ve been to inner space
I’ve been to outer space
I’ve been to inner space
I’ve been to outer space
I’ve been to inner space
I’ve been to outer space
I’ve been to inner space
I’ve been to outer space
Track Name: Predators
I’m happiest alone, you can all go home
On your way out the door
Could you please take my god damn phone
Well thanks for the concern
But if your back could just turn
Between my health and my hell
There’s a line that’s begun to blur

Knock knock, ring ring, anybody home?
Knock knock, ring ring, anybody home?
Knock knock, ring ring, is anybody home?
Knock knock, ring ring, I’m better off alone

It’s not that I’m depressed
And that’s a lazy guess
All you girls and boys and your digital noise
And the nine to five life
It really cuts like a knife
Once you lose the fight
Might as well say goodnight

Knock knock, ring ring, anybody home?
Knock knock, ring ring, anybody home?
Knock knock, ring ring, is anybody home?
Knock knock, ring ring, I’m better off alone

Knock knock, ring ring, how’s the weather?
Knock knock, ring ring, and you’re mother?
Knock knock, ring ring, new TV show
Knock knock, ring ring, half price sale!
Knock knock, ring ring, important career
Knock knock, ring ring, just climb that ladder
Knock knock, ring ring, make more money
Knock knock, ring ring, spend more money
Knock knock, ring ring, need a purpose?
Knock knock, ring ring, just have more children
Knock knock, ring ring, it’s your birthright
Knock knock, ring ring, to kill the planet
Knock knock, ring ring, this is progress
Knock knock, ring ring, and you deserve it
Knock knock, ring ring, this is moral
Knock knock, ring ring, this is normal
Track Name: Heart Throb
I get the feeling that we both knew
From the start how this would end
A testament to the fallacy
Of using comfort to pretend
But no hard feelings
At least not from me
I’ve been down that road before
Thanks for the colour in my memories
I’m not frozen anymore

I get the feeling that we both knew
From the start how this would end
Expectations and promises
Have burned to ashes once again
But no hard feelings
At least not today
I’ve broken down that door
But then the sun goes down
And the sky turns black
I can’t call you anymore

Ring ring , ring ring
Ring ring , ring ring
Ring ring , ring ring
Ring ring , ring ring
Ring ring , ring ring
Ring ring , ring ring
Ring ring , ring ring
Ring ring , ring ring

I get the feeling that we both knew
From the start how this would end
But how we bend
How we pretend
And how we mend

I get the feeling that this is the end
Track Name: Post Everything
Going back in time just for the weekend
Am I going to be able to get out again
Get out, get out again
Or will the shadows just pull me back in
Will the clouds part and show the way
Has anything even changed
Am I simply dressed to play the part
Of the boy with the broken....

Don’t care about defending
Now I’m post everything
And the message I was sending
Now I’m post everything
All those truths I was bending
Well now I’m post everything
And you’ll post anything
But I’m post everything

Going back in time just for the weekend
Gonna dig up an old friend again
Sometimes I like to pretend
But a mirror can’t become its reflection
And the curse can’t become the cure
My sweet provocateur
I never could resist your touch
But I think I’ve finally had
Enough Enough Enough Enough

Don’t care about offending
Now I’m post everything
And the message I was sending
Now I’m post everything
All those truths I was bending
Well now I’m post everything
And you’ll post anything
But I’m post everything
Track Name: The Flood
You’re the type to dance in the sunlight
I belong on the edge in the shade
But when the dam blows
I want you to be next to me
When we’re underwater we will be the same

You got to me, watch out for me

There’ll be no more
There’ll be no more
There’ll be no more
There’ll be no more
There’ll be no more
There’ll be no, no , no, no
No debts to pay
And nothing to remember
No Tuesdays and no Novembers
Just cold deep, dark, and blue
Just me, just you

You got to me, watch out for me

No more sword overhead
No more living like we’re dead
No more sword overhead
No more living like we’re dead

You got to me, watch out for me
Track Name: Symbiosis
If you’re the peach
Then I guess I’m the pit
Yeah, you’re the food
And I’m the shit
But we’re the same
At a certain point
Like you’re the bone
And I’m the joint
Or you’re the teeth
And me, I’m the hair
In the tumor both our bodies share
Individual
But never alone
You’re the lichen
I’m the tombstone
You’re the healer
I’m the sore
You’re the healer
I’m the sore
You’re the healer
I’m the sore
Track Name: So Many Things
what do you hear in the whispers?
