All bad things have to begin Just chose the place and time I pick a fight I cannot win And let you have your way with me Let you take away my pride You make me weak You make me weak You make me weak (You make me weak) Not that I could ever hope To carry on with this charade You made I'm left exploited and exposed A lapse of faith in who I am Turned into a mascarade You make me weak You make me weak You make me weak You make me weak You make me weak You make me weak You make me weak You make me weak

Small star How you've come to grow such stellar arms So far away Or just an earthly ghost of yesterday So, so afraid Lights can lengthen shadows by the yard This is hard To let a halo dim itself and go Beyond Orion's arm So far away Or just too close to what was yesterday? Hold the matter in And bars may form across those stellar arms For just a star Pulsars Buckle from the weight of heavy hearts Words - worlds away Your halo's sending missives anyway So, you're so removed No constellation scatters by a sound They're still around For every standard candle has a fit-ful luminary heart For just a star... For just a star... For just a star... Small star How you've come to grow such stellar arms So far away Or just an earthly ghost of yesterday So, so afraid Lights can lengthen shadows by the yard This is hard To let a halo dim itself and go Beyond Orion's arm

I exercise in Futility, it Keeps me fit and Makes me thin. I Venture out into The bleak light On a lark, on A random whim. You Overwhelm my Sense of balance. I Hold it tight Keep it close And controlled and within This chemistry can Only create more Disbelief You call the shots You hold all the reins tied to me Yours is the voice of uncertainty Where is this path you are leading me? Some sort of twisted methodology I may be deaf, but I still can see Yours is the voice of uncertainty Where is this path you are leading me? Some sort of twisted methodology I may be deaf, but I still can see

Another day Another day Another day Just a fragment of my life An ocean full of waves Another day To forgive my errant ways And the turmoil that I made Another day Each one a step ahead Let's push the past away Another day To leave this place behind To settle under dust Another day To hold you in my arms And feel your beating heart Another day To feel the faintest breath With my head upon your chest Another day Just a fraction of my life An ocean full of waves Another day Another - day

Pull me close Seduce me with your noise Don't look down I'll see you for what you are Bring me in You've stolen all my friends Draw me near And make promises you can't keep Underground Full of chaos and decay Bide my time How heavy you must weigh Push me out And that's okay Cast me off I need more green than grey
7.
All good things will have to end How could I fuck up once again? Why did I let there be this void? Self-destruct & self-destroyed The life we built - I tore apart My own deceit - your broken heart I seek no shelter from this storm - to avoid Self-destruct & self-destroyed Self-destruct & self-destroyed Self-destruct & self-destroyed

Your elastic words snap back The stinging pierces deep and fills me with your pain No antidote can save me from the fact That thoughts of sympathy I cannot entertain Every move I make just tightens up your grip Your damaged psyche cannot be undone Every move I make just tightens up your grip Why don't you let me slip away from you? This push and pull, it frightens me Bound by promises I know I cannot keep This push and pull confuses me Take advantage while my tired eyes My tired eyes are full of sleep You thought that I could save you from yourself Some sort of shield, some kind of shining knight Hidden thoughts are hazards to your health I will not fan the flames that passion would ignite Every move I make just tightens up your grip Your skewed perspective cannot be undone Every move I make just tightens up your grip Why don't you let me slip away from you?

My pitch sea You worry me As how, not why Before her waves Subside to find The smallest pearl Inside An ocean's heart She unfolds invisible I'll know you'll find A sheltered home Come in From The Cold Your cosmic force Will run its course Your cosmic force [able to discern] Will run its course [secrets we will learn] Your cosmic force [all the tides will turn] Will run its course [and the heavens burn] Your cosmic force [able to discern] Will run its course [secrets we will learn] Your cosmic force [all the tides will turn] Will run its course [and the heavens burn]

I wore my heart upon my sleeve Only to brush it away on some later day Something I forgot - something we need Left out in the rain After our first date No more misery No more misery No more misery No more misery How could I miss it for so long? To carry on each day Nothing left to say You showed me how unconsciously I tried to hide below The greedy undertow No more misery In soliloquy No more misery In soliloquy No more misery In soliloquy No more misery In soliloquy I see you in the muted light Easy to enthrall Quixotic to a fault So exotic in this faded night The ocean breeze Whispers absently No more misery No more misery No more misery No more misery No more misery In soliloquy No more misery In soliloquy No more misery In soliloquy No more misery In soliloquy

about

4th full length album 5 years in the making, released in sept 2009 on cd & dvd features both stereo and quad surround audio

following in the footsteps of 2003's "immortal game," this latest album returns to the esoteric beats, scratchy vinyl samples, and lush synthesizers that are trademarks of the symbion project sound.

working closely with simon swarbrick, who also added strings to UHP's "subtle things ep," many of the songs feature an array of elaborate string arrangements that breath life into the mechanical beats.

Melissa R Kaplan of Universal Hall Pass adds her beautiful vocals and lyrics to many of the songs in addition to kasson who sings on quite a few as well.

overall, the flavor of this album is dark, melancholy, and introspective. this album was also the first chance to mix the album both in stereo and in quad surround.the album comes on both a stereo audio cd and a video dvd containing both the quad surround dts mix in addition to a hi-res 24bit 44.1KHz stereo mix. if you like symbion project in stereo, you can only imagine it spread over 4 speakers and immersed in the soundscape.
