Fuzzrious Foda! Listening to this band is the same as being on a psychedelic roller coaster, I feel that bringing the drag sound to the acceleration of the guitars was a great thing! I really dig this album and gonna stay tuned to the news! Fuzz Fuzz Favorite track: Black and Blue.

Track Name: The Closet Monster Shuffle
Close your eyes tight, try to sleep
Long cast shadows start to creep
Floorboards creaking down the hall
Something stirring in the wall

Fear of the unknown

On the far side of the room
Silhouetted by the moon
Cracking open closet door
Frozen with fright, chilled to core

Fear of the unknown

Try to hide
Under the sheets
Despite the terror
Can’t help but peek
From the doorway
Steps a beast
Hairy monster
Looks to feast

It shuffles closer, gnashing teeth
Raspy voice says, “Time to eat!”
Just as it was too much to bear
Hit the lights: nothing there

Fear of the unknown
Track Name: Smashosaurus
Smashosaurus rex!

Blessed are we just to flee
From his great presence
Godlike beast, deity
Annihilate mankind

Smashosaurus rex!

Rending flesh, crushing bone
Teeth like railroad spikes
Euphoric saurian majesty
Orgasmic death from fright

Every ruin in his wake
Becomes a temple to his strength
Every scale left behind
Becomes a relic of his wrath divine

Smashosaurus rex!
Track Name: Fill in the Blanks
Closing watery gaps between far lands
And we’re blurring the lines laid out by our fathers

Fill in the blanks: Feet planted firmly on the earth
Fill in the blanks: Heads soaring up amongst the stars
Fill in the blanks: To the gods of luck we throw our thanks
Fill in the blanks: Uncover mysteries and fill in the blanks

Grazing bluest vaults of the heavens
And we’re plumbing the depths, subterranean regions

Fill in the blanks: Feet planted firmly on the earth
Fill in the blanks: Heads soaring up amongst the stars
Fill in the blanks: To the gods of luck we throw our thanks
Fill in the blanks: Uncover mysteries and fill in the blanks

Warp drive, streaming out into the darkness
Will we leave it behind? Will we abandon what is human?

Censorship
Government control
Stamping opposing schools of thought

Indoctrinate
Theocracy descends
Burning all the seekers at the stake
When they fill in the blanks

Reach a point where the powers that be try to snuff out all the flames
Suffocate imagination, playing at their games
Despite the oppressive will imposed on the thinking man
The quest for knowledge perseveres: underground rebellion

Odyssey, endless search for the answers
Will we leave it behind? Will we abandon what is human?
Track Name: Mechanization
Dead upon arrival, dreaming
Internalize the struggle, screaming

On my last day
Blow you all away
Violent fantasy
Is consuming me

Color of emotion, draining
Terminal corrosion, staining
Tortured by the morons, seething
Heroin of power, bleeding

On my last day
Blow you all away
Violent fantasy
Is consuming me

Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you
You’re cool, fuck you, I’m out

Piece by piece I am replacing what makes me real
Personality erasing, cold as steel

Punch in - Check out - Automatic - Shut down

Die inside

Dehumanization, blinding
Mechanization, grinding
Track Name: Black and Blue
Creeping in slowly from the corners of the brainwave
Leaving a trail of hurt
Waxing all poetic as the feeling gets established
Driving into the dirt
Drink one for the living, drink one for the dead
Spirits combine as the forces align to warp what’s in my head

Sweet misery
She beckons you
Loves company
She left me black and…

Blue like the vault of the endless sky
Bearing down from above
Black like the spiteful poison on my tongue
Contaminates our love
Red like that blood in my veins, green like the envious urge
Yellow like the coward that I mutate into when I feel the panic surge

Sweet misery
She beckons you
Loves company
She left me black and…


Smash all of my innards and leave me in pieces
Muddle the bitters, superior vintage
Smash all of my innards and leave me in pieces
Muddle the bitters, superior vintage

Fuck all of the hangups
Fuck all of the clues
Fuck every goddamn thing giving me these blues

Creeping in slowly from the corners of the brainwave
Leaving a trail of hurt
Waxing all poetic as the feeling gets established
Driving into the dirt
Drink one for the living, drink one for the dead
Spirits combine as the forces align to warp what’s in my head

Sweet misery
She beckons you
Loves company
She left me black and…

BLUE

Black and Blue
Black and Blue
Track Name: Maple Crunch
Pour a bowlful
Maple Crunch
Milk of bovine
Start to munch

As my teeth bite into the spoonful of the clusters so divine
Reality rips and tears apart, sending shivers down my cracking spine
My eyes are flooded and overwhelmed by psychedelic beast assault
Brilliant rift spilling nether creatures blaze-blasting through my skull

See the portal
Step inside
To the center
Of the mind

Fiber payload
Hits the guts
Drop the kids off
Maple Crunch
Track Name: Space Tree
Lost in space and out of gas
I set my course to the nearest planet
Descending deep through gaseous fumes
The gauge hits E as the radio rings out
A droning signal that terrifies
Yet entices me downward

We’re going down!

Engines cut out, sputtered embers
Crash landed on a vast plateau
When the dust cleared, in the center
Monolithic sylvan entity

On my hands and knees
Worshipping the tree
On my hands and knees
Wept beneath the leaves

Vaulting over roots
Eating of the fruit
Climbing up the never-ending branches of the Spacetree
Abandon mission home
Take my wooded throne
Climbing up the never-ending branches of the Spacetree
Track Name: Candlewax
Necromantic spells hang in the air
Ancient cauldron rolling to a boil
Lightening strike illuminates the room
Clap of thunder prophesies your doom

Candlewax is dripping in the night
Candlewax is dripping down my spine

You come to me in misfortune
To cure you of what ails
Lives in abject dysfunction
Telling me your tales
Sinister components
Are tossed into the pot
Speak the incantation
Absolve you on the spot

But woe betide the dreamer
To think you know the whole
For with our little contract
You’ve forfeited your soul
As the fire consumes
Candle wax to wick
Morbid realization:
Blessed are the sick

Blessed are the sick
Burn from wax to wick
Blessed are the sick

Necromantic spells hang in the air
Ancient cauldron rolling to a boil

Candlewax is dripping in the night
Candlewax is dripping down my spine
