about

An organic, live-sounding album, Decoding the Illusion is a reaction to the barrage of negative signals we receive each day in modern society. The endless corporate slogans, the myriad of false idols, the political actors that have elected themselves to dictate our fortunes and the out-dated religions which try to make us feel guilty for being who we are.
Our goal is to raise awareness and consciousness. To help unite people by breaking these negative patterns and neutralise the widespread fear-fuelled mass media control, by spreading positive vibrations to the population.

Track Name: Carnival
Well how can I keep from going under?
When these moods spin on the breeze asunder
When the wave crashes down and I go under
The storm in my head, I'm deafened by the thunder

I think I might be going crazy
Am I going crazy?
I think I might be going crazy
Am I going crazy?

Flapping my flippers just to stay in play
These pinball emotions bounce me through the day
Flapping my flippers just to keep the storm at bay
These pinball emotions bouncing through the day

Oh the flashing lights, it's like a carnival
But you're not alone, no need to be unsure
The flashing lights, it's like a carnival
But you're not alone, no need to be at war

Well how can I keep from going under?
When these moods spin on the breeze asunder
When the wave crashes down and I go under
The storm in my head, I'm deafened by the thunder
I think I might be going crazy
Am I going crazy?
I think I might be going crazy
Am I going crazy?

Staring down the tracks of this rollercoaster ride
Some days like Dr Jekyll, other days you want to hide
Staring down the tracks of this rollercoaster ride
Some days like Dr Jekyll, other days you want to hide

Oh the flashing lights, it's like a carnival
But you're not alone, no need to be unsure
The flashing lights, it's like a carnival
But you're not alone, no need to be at war

It's all right now, it's all right now
It's all right now, it's all right now
It's all right now, it's all right now
It's all right now
It's all right, all right, all right
It's all right now

Is it any wonder we're caught in a spin?
When attention spans are spread so thin
Drawn in by the newest craze
But our own minds are still a maze
Stressed and stretched to breaking point
These shallow attractions just disappoint
There's more to life than the carnival
More to life than the carnival

If you make a break, you won't fall behind
You can find true peace in your own mind
Step away from this shallow parade
Leave behind a life of upgrades
Break free from your possessions
Go beyond short-term obsessions
There's more to life than the carnival
More to life than the carnival

It’s all right now, it’s all right now
You can still breathe on your own
Still breathe on your own
It’s all right now, it’s all right now
You can still breathe on your own
Still breathe on your own
Still breathe on your own
Still breathe on your own

Oh the flashing lights, it's like a carnival
But you're not alone, no need to be unsure
The flashing lights, it's like a carnival
But you're not alone, no need to be at war

The carousel keeps turning
But we can get off anytime
From our roller coaster days
We can escape the pantomime
Escape the pantomime

The carousel keeps turning
But we can get off anytime
From our roller coaster days
We can escape the pantomime
Escape the pantomime
Track Name: Latin Cure
Wise old man once said to me
Make the most of this life
They'll be times of struggle and moments of strife
But you gotta stand strong besides
A man like me, you wanna do your best
Be true to yourself, never mind the rest
Live humbly and treat others with grace
And seize the day with a smile on your face

Don't waste time, on shadows cast
Forgive yourself and forget the past
These days are ticking by so fast
Life is short, gotta make it last
The finest of all life’s flavours
Are the ones that are free to savour
Turn a blind eye to the world of greed
And only take what you really need

I'm gonna break free from this illusion
I'm gonna live every day like my last
I'm gonna dream like I'll live on forever
And I know, I know, I know you feel the same

The past is just a memory
The future isn't set
Throw caution to the wind
And live without regret
Leave behind your past
And feel the burden lift
All that matters is right now
The present is a gift

Trust your instinct, never be afraid
To swim against the mainstream currents
The judgement of others will pass with the wind
Don't ever listen if they claim you've sinned
Those that mind, don't matter
Those that matter, don't mind
Those that mind, don't matter
Those that matter, don't mind

I'm gonna break free from this illusion
I'm gonna live every day like my last
I'm gonna dream like I'll live on forever
And I know, I know, I know you feel the same

The past is just a memory
The future isn't set
Throw caution to the wind
And live without regret
Leave behind your past
And feel the burden lift
All that matters is right now
The present is a gift

True freedom, isn't the modern way
Our busy lives keep the moment at bay
We've all been sold a dream since birth
Wake up now to see your life’s true worth
Roll away from control
Unlock the secrets deep in your soul
Free from a world where illusion is rife
The shock of death shakes you back to life

Don't believe in fate, cos the future isn't set
From a life well lived, you'll have no regret
Forget those illusions of heaven in the sky
Find your happiness here before you die
Death is a friend walking by your side
Your eternal companion on this crazy ride
Embrace your own mortality
And step into reality

With the sun on my face
The shadows always fall behind
With death at my side
I am free
With the sun on my face
The shadows always fall behind
With death at my side
I am free

The past is just a memory
The future isn't set
Throw caution to the wind
And live without regret
Leave behind your past
And feel the burden lift
All that matters is right now
The present is a gift

Live your life, oh live your life
Oh live your life today
Leave your life, yeah leave your life
Yeah leave your life behind

We are free
Track Name: The Hurricane
We are the people and we're taking back the power
Not gonna wait another day, another hour
We are the people and we're taking back the power
Not gonna wait another day

Who's gonna plug it when the rains fall down?
Smashed TV reflects my frown
Tornado spin in a distant land
Media mule kicks up the blinding sand
On the hour, try to make you cower
Shiver all day from the cold media shower
Hand-picked emotion tailored to control
Open your eyes before they crush your soul

Who's against the wall when it all falls down?
Take your pick from the puppet pawn clowns
Who's that standing on the podium block?
Not my leader, not my rock
Rat-a-tat-tat on the flap of the fat cat
Hurl out the throne where the crook king once sat
We are the people and we're standing strong
To pull the plug on a government gone wrong

We are the people and we're taking back the power
Not gonna wait another day, another hour
Fooled for many a year, but now our vision is clear
Not gonna tolerate a country run on fear

We're gonna make it on our own
Now that your cover is blown
Well our emotions you don't own
Seeds of change have now been sown
No we ain't gonna comply
When every word is a lie
You ain't our leader, ain't our king
Let me hear the people sing
We're gonna make it on our own
We're gonna make it on our own

The sincere front man, with the ideal plan
Shatter his illusion, he's a hollow man
They're all the same, well trained in the art
Of spinning a yarn to pull on your heart
To assert in concert the holiest of desire
Adds passionate fuel to the campaign fire
But election promises are never fulfilled
Six months down the line, people still getting killed

You should know by now, that no one wins a war
But investors make a fortune, that's for sure
Always an agenda, behind the closed door
If the price is right, they'll go beyond the law
Now the country’s in debt to the banksters
The corporations, the respectable gangsters
No profit in peace, so nephew fights niece
A cycle of suffering, but we can make it cease

Expose the truth with the words of this song
The resistance is growing its millions strong
Throw out the leaders that don't belong
Take back the power and right the wrong
The powers that be making deals with the devil
Two-faced preachers never keep us on the level
We've cleared the air, now the writings on the wall
Crooked leaders can't brainwash us all

We are the people and we're taking back the power
Not gonna wait another day another hour
We are the people and we're taking back the power
Not gonna wait another day another hour
We are the people and we're taking back the power
Not gonna wait another day another hour
We are the people and we're taking back the power
Not gonna wait another day

We're gonna make it on our own
Now that your cover is blown
Well our emotions you don't own
Seeds of change have now been sown
No we ain't gonna comply
When every word is a lie
You ain't our leader, ain't our king
Let me hear the people sing
We're gonna make it on our own
We're gonna make it on our own

We're gonna make it on our own
Now that your cover is blown
We're gonna make it on our own
The seeds of change have now been sown
Track Name: King Louis
You you a you a you
Like a you you a you
Don't wanna be like you-hoo-hoo
No, don't wanna be like you-hoo-hoo

You wanna be king of your jungle
Prowl the terrain with the rage in your eyes
Well number one you ain't never safe
New contender always hot on your heels

Well a man from outta town come, he steal your crown
He laid you on the pavement
You're so desperate for the respect
Now your pride's all black and blue
You carry on like this; you carry on like this King Louis
You end up in the zoo

You always got the loudest bark
But your bite don't leave no mark
Fighting everyday
You wanna be king of your jungle
Well King Louis you a lonely soul

Pedal your wares, get back on your scooter boy
I got nothing to say to a loser, a looter boy

What!! You think you got the right to terrorise?
Not part of no team, you ain't scoring no tries
You never get nowhere telling your lies
Spouting out shit that only your fools and cronies buy
Now let me clarify

You always got the loudest bark
But your bite don't leave no mark
Fighting everyday
You wanna be king of your jungle
Well King Louis you a lonely soul

Well I'll tell you one thing
I'll tell you now
That King Louis
Is a lonely soul

Yeah my watch stops for apes
I can't give you no time a day
You better believe I got my iron shirt
Listen to me when I say

You is so desperate for the respect
Now your prides all black and blue
Carry on like this King Louis
You end up in the zoo

You always got the loudest bark
But your bite don't leave no mark
Fighting everyday
You wanna be king of your jungle
Well King Louis you a lonely soul
Yeah King Louis you a lonely soul

I don't wanna be like you, be like you-hoo
I don't wanna be like you, be like you-hoo
I don't wanna be like you, be like you
Don't wanna walk like you, talk like you
You know it's true, you know it's true
Track Name: Nun the Wiser
Her name was Isabella
Born under their umbrella
Raised in darkened servitude
Trapped inside their cellar
Into the church she was hurled
Nun the wiser to the world
Her life was always simple
With just habits and a wimple

The price of her purity
Suppressed her femininity
Imprisoned by the walls of
Her faith in Christianity
She only finds her freedom
In the darkness of her mind
Each day desire lusting
To leave it all behind

Her shadow takes her places
She only dreamt before
The dragon that she chases
Takes her beyond the law

Fell from her simple perch
To break free from the church
Went against the grain
No longer to abstain
Thrashing through the fires
Of her repressed desires
Finds her heaven on earth
And leaves behind their hell

Exploring the darkness
Hidden in her mind
Steps into the shadow
Of the pleasure she does find
Her true self awakening
In the face of the reckoning
She rides her black horse
The shadow is beckoning

Her shadow takes her places
She only dreamt before
The dragon that she chases
Takes her beyond the law
No longer to abide
No longer to confess
Now she is beyond the law
Now she screams for more
Free from their reign of terror
She steps out from their umbrella
Her true self born again
The awakening of Isabella

Devouring her shadow
Let's it come to light
Steps into the new dawn
Of her own truth burning bright

Wine flows like water
To Gods own daughter
Restless here before me
Wild rushes cut her free
And she dances
Naked in the flames

Her shadow takes her places
She only dreamt before
The dragon that she chases
Takes her beyond the law
No longer to abide
No longer to confess
Now she is beyond the law
Now she screams for more
Track Name: Ride the Train
I've been down that road before
Now I'm left, wanting something more

I dream each night of somewhere new
To feast my eyes on a different view
To run my train clear off the rails
A change of pace to heal my ails
No satisfaction in this home town
All these roads that I've walked down
Leave behind, all I’ve known
For a chance to live, a chance to grow

I've been down that road before
Now I'm left, wanting something more

Far from home, I have fled
A new night’s sky, shining overhead
Every night in a different bed
Home is where I lay my head
I wake each day, somewhere new
Pack my bag, put on my shoes
Can't stay long just passing through
Always searching for something new

Hear a whisper in the air
Let your wings carry you there
Follow your heart to the end of the earth
Searching for your life’s true worth
Catch the wind and start to sway
Let it take you far away
We're not coming back
‘Til we find our way

These longest days are yours and mine
So ride the train to the end of the line
Climb aboard and forget the blues
All you need are your two shoes
Pass the point of no return
Bright our flames will always burn
Set a course for clearer skies
And see the world through wider eyes

Ride the train
Ride the train to the end of the line
Ride the train
Never know, oh never know what you might find

Sever your ties and feel alive
Let it go, let it go
No need to hold your life so tight
Days are short got to live them right
Here's your ticket, we can afford
To cut the cord and climb aboard
Pulling away from the station

We can ride ‘til the break of dawn
To unknown horizons we are drawn
Learn all we can from the people we find
Leaving our patterns far behind
A change of scene, a new frontier
Stare into the lake, the mind is clear
In the depths, we'll find the truth
That we've been chasing all our youth

I've been down that road before
Now I'm left, wanting something more

Escape the tempest of modern life
Leave behind your trouble and strife
Surrender to nature’s attraction
Searching for true satisfaction
Feel more alive than ever before
The freedom lets the spirit soar
This world
Was made for you and me

These longest days are yours and mine
So ride the train to the end of the line
Climb aboard and forget the blues
All you need are those two shoes
Pass the point of no return
Bright our flames will always burn
Set a course for clearer skies
To see the world through wider eyes

Ride the train
Ride the train to the end of the line
Ride the train
Never know, oh never know what you might find
Track Name: Rising Sun
A rose in the darkness, the beauty of the night
Untouched grass beneath our feet
The burning horizon lights our way

As we climb that hill, you see
The light inside me shines, I'm free
The light in your eyes lets you go

And I saw…
The rising sun
In your eyes
The rising sun
A new day was born today
And I wanna share it with you

We walked and walked and walked and walked
Out of step is not a crime
The road may twist and turn
But the warrior will always learn

As we paddle out from the shore
False desires are no more
At the mercy of the sea
I have no choice but just to be
I looked out and I saw…

The rising sun
In your eyes
The rising sun
A new day was born today
And I wanna share it with you

Looking clearly now I see
Splashed clean and now I see
Looking clearly and now I see
Myself reflected in you

Floating away…
Track Name: The Truth
Swim back to the shore
Swim back to the shore

It took me years to understand
How you could silently take my hand
It took me years to understand
How you could drag me down your path of life

It took me years to break the ties
Smash the mirrors to see the lies
It took me years to break the ties
And view the world through un-blurred eyes

All I want is the truth
All I want is the truth
All I want is the truth
All I want is the truth

Drowning in a sea of temptation
Jumping at every new sensation
New toys bring short lived elation
Filling your life with complications

Swim to shore on this new land
Rise above and make a stand
Shaking off this greed delusion
Cutting through their weak illusion

All I want is the truth
All I want is the truth
All I want is the truth
All I want is the truth

Well a man never had no troubles no more
When he saw through the illusion and let his mind soar
Kicked at the shadows and found nothing but air
Broke from the grind to see the facts laid bare
The puppets on the strings that they pull from the heavens
Fake heavens that they want you to buy
Don't believe all the hype
They're all just trying to sell you your life

All I want is the truth
All I want is the truth
All I want is the truth
All I want is the truth
Track Name: Midnight Drive
Overlooking the city at night
The dragon’s veins lit up by street light
Sit on the bonnet I'll spin you a sonnet
Steal a moment, from this warm twilight
Engine growling, behind the grille
Won't leave this life ‘til we've had our fill
Pop the pill and await the thrill

Got a racy model with a sexy chassis
A little bit crazy, a little bit sassy
She turns into a minx after a couple of drinks
Got her mind set on her bedroom high jinks
This world has become all mirrors and smoke
So we spark our clarity and take another toke
We got the music playing make your mind resonate
And the booming bass to make your body vibrate

Yeah we race, race, race cos you wanna feel alive
Scorching the highway on a midnight drive
Listening to Hendrix, seducing his guitar
You can only go so far in the back seat of the car
Fasten your seatbelt for this midnight drive
What's the point in living if you're not really alive?
Fasten your seatbelt for this midnight drive
What's the point in living if you're not really alive?

Oh all I wanna do is play with you
Tearing up the highway going ninety two
Hot wire your desire let the music seduce
Put the pedal to the metal and turn you loose
Double droppin’, ain't stoppin' on this all night ride
Flying saucer pupils, yeah they're nation wide
Four to the floor and you scream for more
For you my girl, can't help but break the law

Woah oh wah oh wah oh!
Ride tonight on a midnight high
Woah oh wah oh wah oh!
Gonna get our kicks before we die

Lying there in her underwear
Passionate fruits and a juicy pear
A wink of her eye lets me know she's feeling sly
Trace fingers up her thigh, kissing innocence goodbye
A bite of her lip as I stroke her hip
Tightens her grip as I let my head dip
Fingers do the walking but her eyes scream for more
Wide-eyed desire as I put my foot to the floor

Yeah we race, race, race cos you wanna feel alive
Scorching the highway on a midnight drive
Listening to Hendrix, seducing his guitar
You can only go so far in the back seat of the car
Fasten your seatbelt for this midnight drive
What's the point in living if you're not really alive?
Fasten your seatbelt for this midnight drive
What's the point in living if you're not really alive?

Sway lady sway
As we kiss at my door
Stay lady stay
I know you're aching for more
Play lady play
As we prowl on the floor
Lay lady lay
Let's settle the score

Your passion sparks and your legs start to smoulder
The sweat drips, like ice cream solder
Fires reflected in the eye of the beholder
Feel the flames’ rising as my thrust gets bolder
Finger tips turn to nails as I run you off the rails
A wild-eyed tempest with the storm in her sails
Burning brightly we fly into the sun
Swallowed by the flames as we merge as one

Woah oh wah oh wah oh!
Ride tonight on a midnight high
Woah oh wah oh wah oh!
Gonna get our kicks before we die
Woah oh wah oh wah oh!
Ride tonight on a midnight drive
Woah oh wah oh wah oh!
Gonna get our kicks before we die

Yeah we race, race, race cos you wanna feel alive
Scorching the highway on a midnight drive
Listening to Hendrix, seducing his guitar
You can only go so far in the back seat of the car
Fasten your seatbelt for this midnight drive
What's the point in living if you're not really alive?
Fasten your seatbelt for this midnight drive
What's the point in living if you're not really alive?
Track Name: Kaleidoscope Dreams
You know you can relax now, now the day is done
As we drift to the horizon with the setting sun

Lay here with me in kaleidoscope dreams
Let our bodies be soothed under the warm sun beams

Majestic birds gliding in the sky
Recline in comfort as we watch them fly
Our open minds, so easy to please
Mesmerised by a feather on the breeze

A delicate dash across a stepping stone
To rest on the rocks of nature’s own throne
Sitting in peace, doing nothing at all
Our minds cleansed watching the clear waterfall

You know it's beautiful,
Why don't you come out to play?
No chores left to do
On a day like today
Take your time, no need to rush
On this summer Sunday
We couldn't get much higher
On a day like today

Walk a while through this golden field
You be my wisdom and I'll be your shield
Rest a while to share bread and wine
Your sun-kissed eyes make your smile shine

Lay here with me in kaleidoscope dreams
Let our bodies be soothed under the warm sun beams

Watching fluffy animals escape from the zoo
Tracing their outlines in the great big blue
Your rainbow is my staircase to the sky
We couldn't be higher, now we've learnt to fly

You know it's beautiful,
Why don't you come out to play?
No chores left to do
On a day like today
Take your time, no need to rush
On this summer Sunday
We couldn't get much higher
On a day like today

Couldn't get any higher
No we couldn't get any higher today
Couldn't get any higher
No we couldn't get any higher today
Couldn't get any higher
No we couldn't get any higher today
Couldn't get any higher
No we couldn't get any higher today

Lay here with me in kaleidoscope dreams
Let our bodies be soothed under the warm sun beams

Lay here with me in kaleidoscope dreams
Let our bodies be soothed under the warm sun beams
Track Name: Together We Are Giants
When you're cast adrift on a lonely ocean
Let the wind set your sails in motion
Away from the shore your ship may roam
But the lighthouse of love will guide you back home

Together we are giants, standing tall
Always a helping hand whenever we fall
Our sisters and brothers, we all stand strong
Side by side, as we're singing this song

Light up the fire and gather around
Keep it burning all through the night
The glow of the flames will light our way
And the beat of our hearts, won't lead us astray

On the breath of chance, our feathers are blown
But through it all we are never alone
The mighty drum beats inside your chest
Giving you the courage to conquer your quest

Through every fight, the light keeps us strong
Through the darkest of nights we'll be singing this song
The glow of the flame will light our way
And the heat of our hearts, keeps the demons at bay

Light up the fire and gather around
Keep it burning all through the night
The glow of the flames will light our way
And the beat of our hearts won't lead us astray

The wisdom of our fathers rings clear in our mind
To bring us strength in the challenges we find
We carry the torch of the blessed departed
To fuel the fires of the dreams that they started

Don't let the memory fade
Don't let the memory fade
Don't let the memory fade
Don't let it fade…

Light up the fire and gather around
Keep it burning all through the night
The glow of the flames will light our way
And the beat of our hearts
Won't lead us astray

Light up the fire and gather around
Keep it burning all through the night
The glow of the flames will light our way
And the beat of our hearts
Won't lead us astray
