about

My first musical love was progressive rock, and nearly fifty years after I started listening to it, I'm still coming back for more. Over the years I've learned to play many of the instruments that helped to create the music I love, so perhaps inevitably, prog has become the music I love playing, too. On this EP I'm programming drums and playing a selection of instruments from my collection of synthesizers, bass, Chapman Stick, and six- and nine-string electric guitars.

The music here was all created during February 2019. This EP is a way for me to let my influences show. I hope you have fun spotting them.

about

Chris Harris Bristol, UK

I've been making music since I was a kid, when my parents acquired an acoustic guitar from my cousin. Then I discovered synthesizers. And electric guitars. And the Chapman Stick. And this is where I've ended up...

Track Name: Xenotaph
Always turning inward
Won't admit the Other exists
While your empire withers
All that you despise still persists
I can only see the hubris
Waiting for your fate to descend
Sifting through the debris
Knowing that we're reaching the end

Raising up your monuments
Commemorating all that you've lost
Nothing's ever permanent
Was all that you got worth the cost?

Fortify your borders
You will never see it don't work
Giving people orders
This is not the same as Dunkirk
Turn your back on unity
Saying that it's not what you need
The land of opportunity
You want to create's based on greed

Raising up your monuments
Commemorating all that you've lost
Nothing's ever permanent
Was all that you got worth the cost?

Abandoning your principles
The oligarchs you let take control
No different from criminals -
Can't you see they've stolen your soul?
Nothing's insurmountable
But this was never going to end well
I hope that those accountable
End up in the deepest of hells

Raising up your monuments
Commemorating all that you've lost
Nothing's ever permanent
Was all that you got worth the cost?
Track Name: Hidden Intent
The face that you're seeing;
The face turned away
What's confirmed as being;
What is left as hearsay
The things we accepted
in the absence of proof
And those we rejected
in spite of their truth

Do we take the action
They expect us to take
when caught by distraction
and a story that's fake?
Do we challenge the lies
and the things they demand?
Don't examine the eyes
Instead, study the hands

The people who tell you
They're ahead in the polls
Are trying to sell you
Their form of control
They're always denying
What the rest of us prove
You can tell that they're lying
When you see their lips move

The things that they say
have no value or worth
and countless the ways
that they're wrecking the Earth
Their time must diminish
their influence gone
Because, at the finish,
we're all in this as one
