about

TSP and MMC are 2 songs that we wrote at the end of the Bridges era... We had most of the songs done, but the vocals weren't finished, so we didn't record them.

DMP is a cover we were playing for a streak of shows we played at the Fear Factory haunted house in SLC. We like the cover so much we wanted to record it.

Upon deciding we were going to take a new approach for writing the follow-up album to Bridges, we decided we would record these 3 stragglers and give them out for free.

Enjoy!

Track Name: The Shallow Point
Show me all that you have heard
I wanna hear the unspoken words
Fall out from your mouth
But you crawl because they won't come out
The doubts are still drowning every ounce of your soul
Just look inside
Keep your eyes on the prize
You'll get there when you will
Reject the swallow of those tainted pills

Don't rehearse the shallow point again
You don't have to stick around here
Anger could never guide you home

The people are moving all around you
Just like you should
But it sounds as if they've been avoiding the truth
And talking so rude
And if that is the case then themselves they will face
Reacting from reactions
Allowing themselves to fraction the amount of
Self satisfaction

Don't rehearse the shallow point again
You don't have to stick around here
Anger could never guide you home
Don't rehearse the shallow point again
You don't have to wait around here
Track Name: Mr. & Ms. Communication
Have you ever been held in a place
Where you feel the space?
The space between your true intentions
And your mental complications
Just speak your mind for even if
No words come out you won't again
Be feeling like a kid with no direction
A senseless kind of nothing

Did you really just want to ride along
This whole time have you been gone

Well let me hear what you have to say
To make me understand I'll put my selfish aims away

Sometimes all we need is for someone
To listen to what we're saying
For all that we're saying
And true meaning is found
When you take the time to give those words
Some room to breathe
So speak to me

Did you really just want to ride along
This whole time have you been gone

Well never put yourself above the earth
That sort of twisted place where nothing hurts

Because if we all could comprehend
That our lives are worth the same
Then perhaps we wouldn't be stuck inside
These games of excuses and blame
