Biography


Lee, who hails from Big Indian, NY, is an energetic and passionate performer.

Lee attended the Mortimer Dramatic Arts Institute in Montigue, NJ. He is also an accomplished Painter and Digital Artist.

Tom, from Amityville, NY, is an exceptional composer. Having written all of the music on this LP in two weeks, Tom is always coming up with something interesting on the fly.
His impressive, eclectic writing style ranges from Classical and Latin, Pop, through to intricate Metal.
His recording experience includes several Dwell Records compilation albums, Including Pantera, Sepultura, Rush, Black Sabbath, Kiss and Ministry.

Ali masterfully commands the Bass. His high energy, compelling stage presence is truly something to see. A fun-loving, outgoing individual, who is never at a loss for wacky humor.
Jeremy (Lee's little brother) and Joe are newcomers to the band. They have both eased into their positions with,
just the right attitude and a keen sense of readiness.

There

There

Lyrics by Lee Lueken (Blessyou@optonline.net)

Don't you look at me that way
Can't you see the sky is falling
The darkness never dissapates
I find it quite alarming

In a dream I saw you slip away
The skies just turned a deeper gray
I was afraid
Then I realized
when I opened my eyes
you were there

You were there
ohh you were
were there
for me
all along, you

I thought we understood each other
Now I know the sky is falling
I guess I was just wrong again
Just another passing storm.. yeah

In a dream I saw you slip away
And drain all the color from my day
I was dismayed
Then I realized,
when i opened my eyes,
you were there

I'm sorry for the things I said
Now I know the sky's not falling
Forgive me baby, if you can
and hold me till it's morning

In a dream I saw you slip away
And drain all the color from my day
I was dismayed
Then I realized,
when i opened my eyes,
you were there

Undone

Undone

(Lyrics by Lee Lueken)

Freeedom - Undone
So much for battles fought and won.
Censors - To arms!
Somebody spoke - Someone sound the alarm

Prohibiting expression
is that their right?
Review your constitution,
if it's still within your sight.
Repression is a sickness
that leads to evil things.
We cannot let them win this...\
Let freedom ring!

The fires ignite
The puritans search by torchlight.
Fear of the mind
There's a witchhunt on free will tonight

Prohibiting expression
is that their right?
Review your constitution,
if it's still within your sight.
Repression is a sickness
that leads to evil things.
We cannot let them win this...\
Let freedom ring!

Onward - They race
their self-riteousness sets the pace.
The fires - still burn
last seen headed toward Howard Stern

And as your thoughts bury the dead
the little things that went unsaid
a lashing of the tounge to the roof of your mouth,
unsung...

Undone
hold your tounge
instruments of intellect unstrung...

And as your thoughts bury the dead
the little things that went unsaid
a lashing of the tounge to the roof of your mouth,
unsung...

Undone
hold your tounge
instruments of intellect unstrung...

Surprise
Realize
we'll find
the answer someway

The puritans rise
They're stoking the fires.
Protect what is yours,
and I'll protect mine.

At Sea

Written By: Lee Lueken


At Sea
Lyrics by Lee Lueken

Verse 1:
How time flies...
the moments we've shared
I'm left mystified
by who you are
and what you mean
to me

fire-lit eyes
the soul that wears them
they light my dreams
awake and asleep
and burning so deep
in my memory

Bridge:
And you don't know... How I feel
I'm stuck between... two "rights", and it feels...

Chorus:
Wrong to want what I know is good for me,
and wrong to let myself go without,
but if my conscience would allow me,
I'd come for you. Don't you ever doubt...

That this... Is killing me...

Verse:
Do you remember when
our eyes first alligned
and you changed my life
without
uttering
a word

I could live there
frozen in that moment
so perfect and pure
that everything
outside
seemed absurd

Bridge:
And I'm not me... without you
I'm lost at sea.. Till I'm around you

Chorus:
Piece of mind, my love, you give me
faith in the fact that not everything's wrong
time and distance may devide us,
despite all of that, this bond remains strong

...and trust... will never fade

Anymore

(Lyrics by Lee Lueken)

Verse:
How did it come to this
all the things that will be missed
I can't say...

You took us by surprize and shook up all those sheltered lives
when you went away

Why did you have to go
pull the lights and stop the show?
what was hurting you?

We're all left behind
wishing that we could rewind
and make you see it through

Bridge:
Once upon a times
have an end
You don't have to die
to start again

Verse:

Tragedy, it seems, is in the wind
your parents haven't come to grips
and the sun passes right through them

I dreamed that you were by my side
and everything was alright
Then the buzzer rang

Bridge:
Once apon a times
have an end
You wrote your's too short
my friend

Chorus:
A vaccuum now where you once stood
(Now that you're gone, you're gone!)
I really hope your reason was good
(Now that you're gone, you're gone!)
Scared to death of your secret hell
(Now that you're gone, you're gone!)
But not too scared to end yourself
(Now that you're gone, you're gone!)

Now that you're gone, you're gone
Now that you're gone, you're gone
Now that you're gone, you're..

And you don't say hello anymore

And you don't say hello anymore


Far Away

Written By: Lee Lueken

Estranged at birth, it seems we are
wrestling circular gudges
They cut, they bruise, they burn, they scar
untill we throw them away
The shame of crimes carved in the past
we all have our judges
In the schoolyard casting stones
yet never really seeing eachother and

It seems that - You're so far away
I just don't know you at all
all born of stars
but farther apart than they dare to be (you and me)

I'm tired of the fight and I don't even
remember the reason
It doesn't matter any more because it all
goes away anyway
the pain, the sruggle, and the strife
it's all just temporary
and in the end, we stand alone
so for now, lets just put it all aside - but

It seems that - You're so far away
you just can't hear me at all.
No telephone
unlisted number anyway

It seems that we're so far away
and enough is enough
no perfect world
but maybe we just aint trying hard enough

(sometimes) When the lines go out of focus - the truth can be seen
We were born of one thing - No that wasn't just a dream...

Some other way, some other time
I've just been lost inside my own little mind (I know it)
Some other way, some other time
We've just been lost inside our own little minds

This time, we'll find a way
we've got a way to go - before we escape from the ship we're sinking in
This time we'll find a way
We've got a way to go - before we radiate - radiate - radiate

Get your - mind on straight
Don't break - don't try to validate - incubate - that hate!
Here's where we walk away
'cause revenge kills - find your love and- radiate - radiate - Round the world
All around the world - La la love
