Tinnitus or Whistling Ears

by on Jul.01, 2017, under POETRY | LYRICS

The wind is rushing around and we are carried along on two wheels. Hard to hear any audible sound due to the whooshing sound in our ears. I try to give direction but the words are lost in the deafening breeze. They drift away and begin to mingle amongst the leaves on the trees. A beautiful day in May turned sour by a misunderstanding – not once but twice. At the time I blamed it on the wind but it seems there were underlying things I couldn’t see. Tensions mount as you turn about to follow me trying to bark your disdain into my ear but nature won’t let you through. My dislike with the situation grows and soon I’m as angry as the wind. I command you to be silent as if I have some sort of control over you. I can’t tell you what to do any more than I can the wind. Neither one of you listen. I move ahead – go faster trying to escape the incessant howl.

We finally reach our destination and duck inside finally escaping the blustering air but your brash whining only escalates. I just can’t get away so I storm back outside with only the sound of the natural world at my side. I gather my senses and try to settle down. How did such a wonderful and peaceful day go so awry? After a few minutes of self reflection it’s time to go back inside and apologize. We talk and seemingly work things out but I’m unaware of the pressure that is building underneath. Believing we are okay we part ways. If only I could have seen. If only I’d heard what the wind was telling me.

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)
(previously titled Zombie Song or ZippityZipZip)

VERSE #1

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

VERSE #2

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

VERSE #3

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

CHORUS

Dance
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.

Euphonic Dissonance re-imagines Ministry’s Psalm 69 Part 5

by on Dec.29, 2010, under MUSIC, POLITICS, RELIGION, UPDATES

Brian brings an update on the recording of Ministry’s PSALM 69 – RE-IMAGINED…

If you like this blog then you should SUBSCRIBE TO OUR BLOG

Here are the FINISHED LYRICS for the re-imagined PSALM 69 song we’re going to be submitting into this fine contest put together by Tunecore and Ministry. We’ve only got until friday of this week to finish this track so we’re working hard to pull it all together.

Working on this track – I’ve been surprised to find that I misunderstood many of the samples. For instance – what I thought was “fire – god’s dreamer” is actually “liar – blasphemer”. How did I screw that up?

I’m working on the vocals now so you can expect to hear something new and exciting tomorrow. It’s really almost done!!!!

LYRICS FOR PSALM 69 – RE-IMAGINED

Verse 1

They march up and down the street
Planting their feet
One foot in front of the other
Can you hear me brother?

Do you bear the mark?
If not they’ll drag you off

Make you understand
His master plan
The body of christ looked unto me
He made them better than man
And now they preach unto thee
Of the great short attention span

Verse 2

Wish we could turn back the clock
Before they fed us this crock
Should have saved Assange
They were the chosen ones

Have you prayed today?
Get on your knees and pray

Humble yourself before the messiah
Learn your place – call him sire
In his name we maim
With christ to conspire
Learning to prowl in his name
More souls to acquire
Taking their message door to door
Find out what you stand for
Promises of everlasting life
But at what price?

Verse 3

They call it war
A war that we pay for
A fight to stop heresy
Not written but spoken decree

Please present i.d.
Before we make you bleed

Listen to the words of our lord
Learn to fight with his sword
They tend to the sheep
Wiring up the flock
Their minds are asleep
They feel a mild shock
Focus their weary mind
Mission so defined
Promise to live forever
With no proof whatsoever

Hook

Revolution comes
New world
New order
Psalm 69

Still no chorus worked up but definitely have a concept of what we want to do with that. Oh, we should have a third verse very soon. Be patient. I figured you guys were tired of reading about Julian Assange in our blogs but look – SUPRISE – I included him in these lyrics. Well, that’s it for now. Should probably get back to work and finish writing these lyrics so we can have this done before the end of the month. So … what do you think of the lyrics?

Euphonic Dissonance re-imagines Ministry’s Psalm 69 Part 2

by on Nov.28, 2010, under MUSIC, UPDATES

Progressive industrial music group Euphonic Dissonance takes on the task of re-imagining the Ministry song PSALM 69. Here’s an update on their progress. This song will be entered into a contest to be featured in the upcoming movie soundtrack for FIX – a movie about Ministry.

Here’s what a certain Ministry’s Psalm 69 sounds like when you pump it through the Euphonic Dissonance musical grinder. What’s different than the previous blog about this song? – well, we added some delightfully distorted guitars to the mix. Their just rough cuts on the guitar parts. Will hopefully do some more work on that tomorrow but got caught up in rounding out the song in other ways. Sorry for the bridge fade but there isn’t much going on beyond the bridge that isn’t a train wreck. That will be resolved very soon.

MInistry Remake Psalm 69 – rough draft 2 fade at bridge

Trying to drop some very subtle hip-hop elements into the drum mix. Can’t wait till this bad angry child is fully grown.
Such a great song and we are having a great time working on this one.

and now…..some fun Ministry lyrics

tell me something i don’t know
show me something i can’t use
push the button
connect the goddamned dots
live-in thief in my bedroom bathroom
commodity sodomy glass autonomy
promise everything take it all away
give it a rest
you’re lying through your teeth
you’re lying through your teeth
who what which why who
when did you say the earth would stop turning?
when did you say we would all start burning?
when should i make a pledge?
should i listen to the voices in my head?
connect the goddamned dots
connect the goddamned dots
connect the goddamned dots
who am i trying to impress?
who could care less?
tell me something i don’t know
lyrics for tvII – psalm 69 album by ministry

Love everyone. Leave us luscious comments about how much you love Ministry’s music. Thanks.

INSIDE STUDIO – BUM BUM track now called MINISTRY OF HATE

by on Dec.30, 2009, under MUSIC, TECH MESSIAH, UPDATES

Brian reports on the recording of the TECH MESSIAH album…..

If you’ve been paying attention you will know that I’ve been working on this little track temporarily titled BUM BUM. Well, it finally has lyrics and a proper name. This track will now be known as MINISTRY OF HATE and here are the lyrics which I hope to be recording to vocals very soon.

MINISTRY OF HATE

© 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

Hook

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
YOU’RE TYPE WE DON’T TOLERATE !!!!!

Well…..there you go. Another fine song with lyrics attached to it. Very angry lyrics that I’m not entirely sure I like. Matter of fact I may just scrap the hook completely. I like the verses but I hate the hook. I just don’t know….

I’ll sleep on it and decide tomorrow. You should give me  input on this one. Do you think I’m too preachy? That’s funny…I’m working on an album about a friggin’ Tech Messiah and I’m worried about sounding preachy in my songs.

Stick It In Me All The Way

by on Mar.25, 2009, under MUSIC

Roll up your sleeve
Let the wires snake up under your skin
Feel it enter in
Shudder slightly at the prick
It’s just a little stick
Close your eyes and curl your toes
The nanobots enter you through the hose
Bring about the most vivid dreams
Finger the spot
Insert the needle
Sweet oblivion waits
He beckons you to be with him
You fade away
Forget the world
Dreaming only of fragrant nectarines and a cool spring breeze
None of this is real
None of it is really what it seems
Don’t dwell on such things
Just accept this life
It’s so much easier when we medicate
So much easier to hesitate
