    Bacchus Curse CD- Dustin did all the artwork on it, and there's some really cool bits, like the album cover on the CD has a metallic sheen, and when you lift it up it's all blurry underneath except for the mask of Dionysis!

I am a prisoner in pain
My arms and legs and neck are chained
All my life I've looked at shadows

But I feel there must be more
My intuition is the door
Behind the wall, I'll see beyond

I'll see
What life
Can truly be

All the world we know is light and shadow
A cave of shifting images and sounds
Is there truth beyond the boundaries of perception
Past the dance of shadows underground

I worked for years to free my hands
And finally broke the iron bands
That held my body to the cave wall

I saw the fire that deceived
And saw the forms that I believed
To be the truth, but still there has to be more

I'll see
What life
Can truly be


I have stared into the depths of the sky
Looking up from here on earth
Even here the clouds cast shadows in my eyes
And all around
I haven't found

Where is the one truth?
I know that I could find
Clarity, purity
Perfect, the truth beyond the darkness?
