Song Description

"They Sent Us Their Dreams" is based on The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury, a myth about the human condition. The music is noise oriented with a rhythm that almost sounds like artillery, but beneath the beat is the melody which rings through with a sense of hope. While the song may sound sad, it is the story of a proud people learning to deal with change--a change that could have positive effects.

Story Behind the Song

"They Sent Us Their Dreams" is based on a Ray Bradbury novel, a myth about the human condition. I don't really like talking about my lyrics too much. I think they stand as pieces of art without the need of explanation, but I take no issue with dropping a couple of clues for the reader and listener to gain some sort of perspective. The song has two very different versions. It was hard to choose which version would be the album version and which would be the sampler version. Ultimately we chose the version with the more dynamic soundscape for the sampler.

Lyrics

Even before their exhausr contaminated our atmosphere
Long before their pox defiled and disunited our bodies
They sent us their dreams

Before they invaded our wombs and cleared a path for the generations to come
Before they lifted the veil to the undiscoverexd country and opened the door into summer
They sent us their dreams

We sang their songs and performed their plays
We redecorated and made this their home, their place
They infected us with their desires
They sent us their dreams

They looked to the past for us to provide them with our future
They analyzed our petrified remains and reasoned of themselves
The best way to gain their present was to hijack our dreams
They sent us their dreams

The most temporatry of our temporal existence
They injected us one by one with all manner of mental disease
So that we had no choice but to live out their fantasies
They sent us their dreams

Our lives sacrificed on the mechanized altar of progress
Each containing some spark o purpose culmination in their self fashioned future
They sent us their dreams

(They did this through a portal of perception mainlining the future).
