Conan Neutron What a fantastic band. Operating in the space around some elements of Unwound and Paul Newman, Ghost to Atom put forth a challenging sound without ever sounding trite or contrived. A band that should have found a bigger audience and deserved more things. A hint of prog with well placed post-punk fury. This is well worth your time. Favorite track: Homeland.

homeland, divine city arise chosen to free and civilize with absolutes and party lines it's alright, it's your right you can work so hard to get back divine rights and the pass of privilege to make the case for surprise attack you can falsify deny after the fact homeland you are the blinding light broadcast from every satellite with soaked rags and hidden wires the terrified are mollified you can try so hard to forget those who stood in the way of progress to medicate the pains of conscience with or against us god and dichotomy neither here nor there god and dichotomy

Take this heart away Secure your hands, hide your eyes Then you're on your way To construct your life You were everything And fate was just a function Of unknown quantities We'll deconstruct the lines And I’ll defy to forfeit. May this heart obey May a million pulses Say what i can't say So we might simplify And I'll defy to forfeit. Head line Heart line Fate line Flat line

A girl is suspended motionless from the ceiling by two ropes. A photo album lies on a wooden table with uneven legs. Outside a hatchling falls from a nest 100 feet up in the branches of an old coast redwood. A rifle is suspended by a strap across a young man’s back And a young boy sits on a flat surface pulled by an unseen rope. A man jumps from a 200 foot cantilever bridge at the place where two men walked hand in hand. The prisoner stands naked in a cold cell. She lies on a stranger’s bed in an unfamiliar town A young woman sits on a bench as a man weeps at the pulpit. A man lies on an inclined board, his arms and legs bound, his face covered with wet rags. She hates the situation, not the people. He takes a deep, labored breath at dawn thinking about what he once did. She lays her head on his shoulder and cries. Consider the magnitude of all relevant forces acting on each and every object.

Cumbersome Maps, capitalize speeding Fix forty firefighters floating on freedom Read to impress, duress to feed Fix forty firefighters fleeing a scene Reach in to duck, handle all calls with luck Fix forty firefighters dreaming of treason Rail a cause, find your belief Fix forty firefighters faulting all reason Cameras fight the most sensitive information You and I, we used to do it all the time Delay, reverse, program our traveling True to the word you’re standing for everything Cameras fight the most gifted of emotions You and I, we used to call it negotiating Session our transgressions, cram our irritations Find forty firefighters to handle our past sins Top notch free you would be Sacked up plot cop on top I have no kind of fight Creation… Disconnect Building is easy, I’m not surprised Just a few weeks ago plotting and planning were brilliant ideas Building and destroying, creating and dismantling Fabricating, eradicating, assembling, aborting, freeing, suppressing Half is not a size, blood is not a right I am not surprised that you would not sell Clip cognitive qualified recognition servicing inside fuses towers paradise coated transit resin side reduce risk electric serviceable replace parts shock changing supply cord disconnect rating pouring speech gone fight personnel
