New Way 06:32
New Way Everybody’s going to find a way Listen now to the words I say Come along and follow me We’re going to make history We found a new way, a brand new way See the people all around the world Listen to the secrets that they’ve heard All the people going to sing along Everybody’s going to sing our song We found a new way, a brand new way I think it’s time for a change Something’s in my brain Can’t you feel the rain? Well you feel the pain, but you can’t find a way You just can’t find love And you’re telling me that you can’t believe Everything you hear from above When you finally see that it’s up to you To make your own way I think it’s time for a change We found a new way…

Revolution 03:45
Revolution Feeling stuck in the same situation Torn apart by the world segregation Feeling burnt and all mixed up They take a little more, but they never get enough I’ve seen all forms of life destruction People brought down by some politician Your self-esteem is all bottomed out And you’re asking me to tell you what’s it all about What’s it all about? I think I know I think it’s time for a revolution… Rules that were made for law and order Ideas enforced inside each border Now your life can be bought and sold For a rich man’s purse and pocketful of gold Governments sworn to their secrecy While they’re making decisions for you and me You see how they want to help the poor To the front of the line in a nuclear war Something’s wrong…something’s wrong I think it’s time for a revolution… Listen now to my solution We’ve got to protect the Constitution Put an end to corporate air pollution now Right now! I think it’s time for a revolution… Repeat Verse 1

State of Confusion I can feel the world spinning ‘round In my mind I hear a certain sound Everyone is telling me the things I should believe It’s an illusion, painted picture on the wall State of confusion, it’s just a dream Everyone would give the truth a try But in their minds they think that they can’t fly I still know no matter what they say, it’s not true It’s an illusion, painted picture on the wall State of confusion, it’s just a dream Hidden in your brain is a false domain Don’t you feel the things I’m feeling? Everything you feel doesn’t seem so real Don’t you know that you are dreaming? Wake up! When your world is gone and you’re on the run Then you’ll feel this dream I’m feeling You’ll be standing tall and then you will fall Then you’ll know that you are dreaming It’s an illusion, painted picture on the wall State of confusion, it’s just a dream

Temptation 04:19
Temptation I never thought there’d come a time I’d lose control of my body and mind And find myself leaving it all behind For some cheap thrills I always thought I could be so true But evil thoughts come from out of the blue Just when I think I found something new I go back to disgusting ways I don’t know what comes over me… I know it’s hard to understand It’s not easy being an honest man I try to do the best I can but I make my mistakes And even though I hold it in It comes back as another sin Just when I think I really begin to take control I don’t know what comes over me… Who Do you Think you Are? People everywhere show their savoir faire Still they’re trying to hide what they feel inside When they finally look, it’s an empty book Who do you think you are? Living in disguise doesn’t seem too wise Who do you think you are? Don’t you wonder who you are? Who do you think you are? All your precious things and the thrills they bring Lose the whole damn set What have you got left? Who do you think you are? Tell me what you feel; do you think it’s real? Who do you think you are? Don’t you want to know who you are? People always try to be someone they’re not Putting up a front while ignoring what they’ve got Telling everybody that they’re Trying to find their dreams But the only thing they’re finding Is the truth is still unseen Spending all their time trying to impress Thinking what’s important depends on their success Self-pity justifies their inner selfish lies The emptiness I see when I look into your eyes I wonder, I wonder who you think you are I wonder, I wonder who you think you are Who do you think you are?

Frozen in Time I see the people living in the street Crying in hunger with children at their feet No one will listen; they just walk on by For no reason they don’t hear their cries Chorus: We’ll gather, frozen in time Together, they say it’s a crime They say we don’t care We’ll show that we really care Live for tomorrow, but feel it today If you feel the sorrow then don’t turn away We’ve got to reach out and show that we care We have the power, so let’s all be there Repeat Chorus Show that you care! I see the people living in fear They hide in the shadows, and I see their tears We’ve got to reach out and show that we care We have the power, so let’s all be there Repeat Chorus
8.
Don’t Bring Me Down You say you just don’t understand You’re just like any other man Except you never seem to care for anybody anywhere Don’t bring me down, don’t bring me down You think the world owes you so much You lean on people like a crutch You always take instead of give Is that the way you choose to live? Don’t bring me down, don’t bring me down… What’s your name? What’s your game? You feel no shame; go away Trouble follows you everywhere you seem to go Don’t bring me down (ya always do) Don’t bring me down (it’s just the way you live) Don’t bring down (why don’t you just go away?) Don’t bring me down…

Groove Child 03:48
Groove Child I saw her once before; I couldn’t place her face And then she slipped away; gone without a trace Now she’s returned to me; it feels just like a dream But I know she’s the one that will make me see ‘Cause in her heart she holds the world with such mystery Chorus: She’s a groove child, funky little baby She’s a groove child, psychedelic lady That’s why she makes me strong With every word she speaks My imagination burns; it’s the fire that she seeks Something’s come over me like a storm upon the sea And I know she’s the one that will set me free She liberates my emotions and I can see Repeat Chorus
10.
Wash Away 05:39
Wash Away I’d love to see you smile with nothing for the reason Come walk with me a while if only for the season I can read your face There’s a secret that you’re keeping Don’t you feel disgrace For the love that you’ve been seeking? Chorus: If I could wash away, I’d wash away the tears If I could wash away, I’d wash away the years of pain I can sense your mind’s been rooted in confusion You’re hurting all the time from constant self-abusion Still when I feel your touch you’re burning with desire I wanna help so much but what would it require? Repeat Chorus Wash away the pain Make you feel love again You know I would if I could I’d wash away the pain Oh baby, ooh my darling I see you hurting there What can I do baby? You know it hurts me too To see your tears falling down When just a little love could turn it all around Repeat Chorus Wash away the pain …
11.
Goodbye 03:52
Goodbye I sit alone in the dark and think of life beyond In afterlife I believe, but what if I am wrong? In my heart am I holding on to eyerything That I know and I wonder if I’m listening To the truth or to the thoughts I want to hear In the hope that I’ll be ready to say Chorus: Goodbye to my heartaches Goodbye to this cruel world Goodbye to all the people My soul shines like a pearl We take this life for granted; our ignorance is bliss Life’s questions left unanswered Awaiting death’s sweet kiss When we’re gone Will there be somebody waiting then for our souls? Will we wake and breathe in life again? I don’t know, but I hope I’ll find the answers And the truth before I have to say … Repeat Chorus In my heart am I holding on to everything That I know and I wonder if we’re listening To the truth or to the thoughts you want to hear In the hope that we’ll be ready to say … Repeat Chorus

about

SUBLIMINAL SHOCK was formed in October 1990 in Minneapolis, Minnesota as an experimental project by former WYZDOM lead vocalist and keyboardist Mark Nesser.

The purpose was to create an all-original rock sound that would cross over to many other styles of music. The band would achieve this with a progressive sound, that has been described as a funky psychedelic metal-ish brand of melodic hard rock.

After ending WYZDOM, Nesser would recruit guitarist Tom Keegan, bassist Scott Glazer and drummer Mike Perron for this new endeavour.

SUBLIMINAL SHOCK would gain a reputation in the Twin Cities as one of the best unsigned and live acts, as well as winning the accolades to back it up.

They would enter Logic Recordings studio to record their debut with Brian Bart (Dare Force). In August of 1991, the band would self-release their album. The 11-songs would be further proof of SUBLIMINAL SHOCK’s musical versatility. This would result in the band’s comparisons being as diverse as DURAN DURAN to QUEENSRYCHE.

The early 1990s would see many hard rock and metal bands like SAIGON KICK, THE FRONT, KING’S X, WARRIOR SOUL, LAST CRACK among others who created their own enigmatic identities within the rock genre. SUBLIMINAL SHOCK would too be one such band.
