New Updated Song Lyrics for CONTAGION – a song about zombies

by on Jan.13, 2011, under MUSIC, TECH MESSIAH, UPDATES

Brian brings us a new Euphonic Dissonance song in the works – – –

Well, it’s almost finished. The song lyrics for our zombie anthem are almost finished. Sarah will be adding her part to this song and then the lyrics will be complete. We’re all excited to see what she produces. Once this is completed we can move on to recording the vocals. Those of you that are fans of the zombie genre (i.e. – The Walking Dead, 28 Days Later, Dawn Of The Dead, Dead Rising) – you are going to love this song.

flaming zombie - 28 days later

This song’s lyrics are more akin to 28 Days Later because in our story it’s all about a weird infectious disease spreading through the population and turning them into zombies – but there’s a twist – and we’re not gonna tell you exactly what it is just yet. Care to venture a guess?

Here are the lyrics to date. The song is now properly called CONTAGION.

CONTAGION (unfinished)

A pattern of unusual illness
The news warned us
No one listened
A communicable disease they said
Person to person they said
Fluid – skin – inhalation they said
Symptoms within ten minutes
We’ve gotta get out of here
Full infestation in fifteen
Gotta get out of here
Spread of contamination
Rise in investigation
Fever, fatigue, cough, chest pain
Then you change
It’s happening everywhere
A nationwide scare
Bioelectric robotic microsurgery
Nano-machines in living cells
And I don’t want to change
Don’t want to be one of those things


Pack food, water, supplies
They run fast
Gotta keep it light
Only the things we need to survive
Flashlight, first aid kit, army knife
Lots of guns and ammo
Maybe steal us a sweet ride
Batteries and hand crank radio
Gotta stay alive
Mostly travel at night
Sneak around
Stay out of sight
We should have seen this coming
Should have seen the signs
Many gave themselves freely
To be redesigned
With promises of better lifestyle
Better health
Better living
We took it all in stride
Now we struggle to survive
Civilization takes a dive
Afraid I’m losing my mind
They try to get in from the outside
Move to higher ground
Find a place to hide
Hermetical seal
Board up the windows
Lock ourselves inside
Synthetic technology
Reprogram your thinking
Oh babe, I don’t want to change
Don’t want to be one of those things


Let’s get out
Before they shut down this town
Witness societies breakdown
Sick people line the streets
People kill for something to eat
Don’t stop moving
Constant threat
Point and click
Either them or us
Keep your eyes open
Look for signs – symptoms
Computer controlled dosing
Reprogram thinking
Alterations of the mind
Remove some of the safeties
Out of our senses
Now out of control
Our creation destroys us
And rightfully so
Bioelectric robotic implant
Nano-machines inside
And I don’t want to change
Don’t want to be one of those things


I’m on fire
And this city will burn

Well, there you have it. The almost finished lyrics for Euphonic Dissonance’s new zombie anthem. Please, leave a comment and tell us what you think.

Psalm 69 Ad Campaign launch and Link to Euphonic Dissonance Website

by on Jan.06, 2011, under MUSIC, TECH MESSIAH, UPDATES


Euphonic Dissonance rolls out their new promo campaign for the Psalm 69 – ReWired Sheep song. We recently had the opportunity to work on this phenomenal track originally recorded by industrial music giants Ministry.

Our digital music distribution website of choice is a website called We like it there. It’s cozy and you can warm your feet next to their virtual fire. Plus, they allow Euphonic Dissonance to distribute music to anyone who has access to iTunes, Amazon, MySpace Music, eMusic, Napster (who still uses Napster?) – yeah, lots of kick ass sites.

Welly well, Tunecore decides to have this over-the-top contest where they team-up with Paul Barker from Ministry and release the bass part and all the samples for their hit song Psalm 69. Contestants were encouraged to make the song their own and that’s exactly what we did. Here is our new ad for Psalm 69 – ReWired Sheep. Just click on it to be magically moved to iTunes and hear a sample of our new song. Below the picture you will find html code that you can copy and add to your website if you’d like to help us promote this amazing new song. We appreciate the help.

And speaking of help … we want to thank Matt Hayes on Facebook for helping improve our performance. Yeah, he’s better than Viagra. Matt asked if he could help promote Euphonic Dissonance and made us realize how unprepared we were for such a request. He’s the reason we wrote this blog and we think he deserves a reward. Matt Hayes on Facebook you are now officially the FIRST PERSON TO RECEIVE A FREE COPY of the song PSALM 69 – REWIRED SHEEP. Hope you like the song. We”ll contact you on Facebook and we’ll work out the details of getting an mp3 sent to you.

And to help you in your quest to promote our music we’re providing you with a banner link to our official webpage below. And again, we’ve place the html code to post the banner on a website directly under the picture. We appreciate all the new friends Matt has introduced us to. Thanks Matt.

Euphonic Dissonance re-imagines Ministry’s Psalm 69 FINALE

by on Jan.03, 2011, under MUSIC, RELIGION, TECH MESSIAH, UPDATES

Brian brings an update on the re-imagining of Ministry’s Psalm 69 song…

Euphonic Dissonance - Psalm 69 - Rewired Sheep (feat. Ministry) - Single

New years eve was a nightmare. I went to bed at about 6am after working on this song all night and then woke up around noon on new years eve to give it a fresh listen and submit the song into the contest. December 31st was the deadline for the contest …. and yes, we waited until the final day to submit the song. We’ll be entering this song into a contest. Winner will be featured on the upcoming soundtrack for the movie FIX (a documentary on Ministry). Former Ministry bassist Paul Barker will be picking the best song. No pressure – right?

So here it is – DEADLINE DAY – I give the song a listen – make some final tweaks to the mix – and go to submit the song to tunecore / itunes.

Keep in mind folks – I had very little sleep. I somehow missed the part on tunecore’s website where I was supposed to enter  the code ministry. This probably flags the administrator to put your single into the contest. Naturally, upon realizing my mistake, I try to contact tunecore to fix the problem. Unfortunately, it’s new years eve and they are closed. Can’t reach them on the phone or via email and they won’t return until January 3rd. OH NO!!! According to tunecore’s website the contest is judged on January 2nd. Now – I PANIC!!! In my sleep deprived state I panic. After screaming at my computer and getting no response I make a phone call to Sarah and we decided to simply submit the song a second time under a slightly different name. Psalm 69 – ReWired Sheep became Psalm 69 – Sheep ReWired and this time we submitted it into the British iTunes store rather than the American iTunes store (where we submitted originally). This time I actually got the code in and all was good in the world. We lost an extra 10 dollars but it was worth it. A lot of hard work went into this track and I wasn’t willing to give up on an opportunity for Paul Barker to hear our track.

We’re very happy to have had a chance to work on such an amazing song. This has been an experience I won’t soon forget – even if it was an extremely stressful one in the end. I want to thank and Paul Barker of Ministry for giving us this chance. I haven’t found anything on tunecore that says when they will announce the winner of this contest but rest assured we will keep you updated. Wish us luck.

And to our fans – thanks for all your support.

Euphonic Dissonance re-imagines Ministry’s Psalm 69

by on Nov.22, 2010, under MOVIES | TELEVISION, MUSIC, UPDATES

Great news. Euphonic Dissonance will be working on a re-thinking of Ministry’s song “Psalm 69”. We’re going to be submitting our little tidbit into this fine contest put together by Tunecore and Ministry. We are so frikkin’ pumped about this.

Paul Barker (bass guitarist, producer and engineer for Ministry) is providing bass tracks and all the samples for producing the song. He’ll also be judging the contest. Our stuff is going to be heard by one of the founding members of Ministry whether we win or not – again folks – THIS IS HUGE!!!! If we win the contest our song will be included on the companion album to the film.

Here is the original song and corresponding video.

If video not displayed – CLICK HERE to hear Ministry’s PSALM 69

So here is a sample of the track that we are currently working on for the contest. It’s very rough but should give you a feel for where this is going.

Sorry about that chaotic ending to the song. If you actually made it to the end there is a chaotic little mistake that’s quite loud and abrasive. Well, that’s all for now. I imagine you’ll hear more on our progress very soon. So, Ministry fans – what’s your favorite Ministry song?

INSIDE STUDIO – Hear Two New Unfinished Songs

by on Oct.18, 2010, under MUSIC, TECH MESSIAH, UPDATES

Haven’t posted anything from the Tech Messiah recording sessions in awhile so we thought we would give you some of the newest stuff that we’re working on. Here’s a couple of brand spankin’ new tracks that need a whole lot of work. They aren’t complete songs yet so there will be a rather abrupt fadeout when they end but we wanted to give you something juicy and let you know that we are still hard at work on this album. Give them a listen and then tell us what you think.



The first track – love where that one is going. The second track – not so much so but it might grow on us. Please give us your opinion on these new songs. Thanks. Love you all.

Brian Copeland of Euphonic Dissonance gives a progress report on the recording of the TECH MESSIAH album.

Here is a brand new track for your listening pleasure. This one has already been compared to the vocal stylings of Marilyn Manson. I can hear that. I’m flattered. Did you know that Marilyn’s real name is Brian?

New Euphonic Dissonance Music

Once again we revisit a very Orwellian theme with this song. I suppose it should sit side-by-side with the 1984 track. However, there is more to the message of this song than just a reference to the writings of George Orwell.

There is a sense of loss of individuality. That which is not understood must be destroyed. It is a rant about the misuse of power by our government for all the wrong causes!!! That’s what this song is about and if you haven’t figured it out already – I have strong feelings about this subject matter.

That being said ….. this song has more in common with the BBC series “The Prisoner”.

Here’s the lyrics for you….


© 2009 Euphonic Dissonance

Verse 1

Clinically adjusted

Obedient and trusted

Hearts in mainline

Critically designed

I fashion you to be one of us

I pattern you to be one of us

Step back in line

Lock step in time

Identify now what you are

We know he’s observing

Our way of life he’s preserving

I fit you in to be one of us

I fix you to be part of us

Verse 2

Hook up – Jack in

Just a taste – Then you’ll feel embraced

We fashion you to be one of us

We pattern you to be one of us

Flashing lights captivate you

Find yourself passing through

Formation in time

Lock step in line

We know he’s monitoring

To him we cling

We fit you in to be one of us

We fix you to be one with us

Can’t you feel it slipping in

Piercing through your skin

We fashion you to be one of us

We pattern you to be part of us

Verse 3

How frail is the human eye

How small is our piece of pie

But that’s about to change

Nothing will ever be the same

We fashion you to be all of us

We pattern you to be one with us

Step back in line

Lock step in time

We look the same

We act the same

I force you till you’re one with us

I fix you to be all of us

Our heart’s receiving

In him believing

We know he’s observing

Our way of life preserving

I’ll kick your head in till you’re one with us

I’ll beat you down till you’re part of us


You belong here

Welcome to the Ministry of Hate

Our mission is quite clear

We are the Ministry of Hate

Those people there – they don’t look straight

Introduce them to the Ministry of Hate

We belong here

Hello from the Ministry of Hate

Our goal is crystal clear

We are the Ministry of Hate

Only safe thing to do is discriminate

Show them freaks the Ministry of Hate


As always … we hope you enjoy the new song. Please leave us luscious comments.
