kyle oscar Solid album front to back. I heard it on Spotify and then had to buy. Loved that it was for sale on Bandcamp in FLAC, I am sick of Apple. Amazing beats and solos. Great vocals, very euphoric in parts, yet savage in others. Favorite track: Parallel Passage.

Track Name: Dreamless State
· LYRICS ·

Our minds hold the key
That will unlock a thousand myths.
A thousand myths
That only our minds can create.

As fragile as the frailest heart
As feverish, as the feeblest thought.

Farewell to our dreamless state
In our minds we must create
Farewell to our dreamless state
And await, these uncommon traits

My mind holds the secrets

That will unlock my lifespan
Resolving my being is the only way out

Farewell to our dreamless state
In our minds we must create
Farewell to our dreamless state
And await, these uncommon traits

My mind holds the secrets
Track Name: Influx
· LYRICS ·

Desolate winds occupy
My desolate mind
This new realm
Must hold something more
Something more
Than what we were used to.
This realm holds more

Something glistens in the distant
Famished for life
Deprived of a greater future
We drag ourselves towards it

Somehow we feel greeted
By this most
Mysterious of attractions
Benevolent in its nature
It shines forth
Benevolent in its nature
We drag ourselves towards it

We drag ourselves towards it
(The world we left behind)
(Is now but a vacant abode)
Something glistens

We drag ourselves towards it
(Our home left but never forgotten)
(As we migrated on)
Something glistens

The world we left behind
Is now but a vacant abode

Something glistens in the distant
Famished for life
Deprived of a greater future
We drag ourselves towards it

The world we left behind
Is now but a vacant abode
Track Name: Phalanx
· LYRICS ·

A spherical component
Is that of perfection
The circular motion
It makes everything revolve

I am revived to regenerate
Contemplate and integrate
I exist to watch
My whole life again

Going inward

I’m shutting off my senses
Going inward
Into my thoughts
Dissolving all that is me
I’m floating into eternity

The landscape is lively
It’s engaged with perplexity
Hovering along
The scorched earth
I feel perfect, immaculate

Dissolving all that is me
I’m floating into eternity

I’m shutting off my senses
Going inward
Into my thoughts
Dissolving all that is me
I’m floating into eternity

The hues are floating
Floating collectively
I am floating into eternity.
Track Name: Immaculate
· LYRICS ·

Cut the chord
Flee from the nest
We all try our best
To get ahead.
But this time
There’ll be no tomorrow
Floating lifelessly around
Inside my tomb

I want to be pure
But danger lures
At every junction of our path
I want to be pure

Is it enough
To be all that you can be?
Escape the comforts of home
Into the night reigns
The fear of being alone
Is it enough?

Cut the chord
Flee from the nest
We all try our best
To get ahead
Cut the chord
Start to ingest
Reach the crest of your quest
The time success is imminent.

Is it enough
To be all that you can be?

Is it enough
To be all that you can be
Escape the comforts of home
Into the night reigns
The fear of being alone

(Is it enough
To be all that you can be?)
Escape the comforts of home

I want to be pure
But danger lures
At every junction of our path
I want to be pure
Track Name: Dream Catching A Nightmare
· LYRICS ·

Dream catching a nightmare
Sleepless dream, ignite your past
Dream catching the nightmare
You will drift intuitively.

I don’t belong here.
I am the esoteric one.
The one, igniting your history.

I am the one you dream of
The one, the only one
Your existence manifested
The outlier.

When we are done
I am the esoteric one.

Gazing through the reality
Of another dimension
One where everything is upside down
Time runs backwards.

The simplicity of your humanoid mind
Cannot fathom the levels
On which my world exists.

I am the one you dream of
The one, the only one
Your existence manifested
The outlier.

I am the one you dream of
The one, the only one
Your existence manifested
The outlier.

Somehow we are connected
I feel your love flow through me
Somehow we are connected
Your one and only.

The one that dream catches your nightmares
The sleepless dream, igniting your past.
I am the esoteric one.
Track Name: Magenta Pt. 1: Perfect Symbiosis
· LYRICS ·

Common folk and crooks
Will be merged in perfect symbiosis.
Creating the perfect monster
The day the earth stood still

Will be present, for this is a new beginning
This is a beginning of epic proportions

We must come to a halt
And reverse what has been done
Ask questions and further yourself
To break free from the chains

Common lies and truth
Will be forged and devastate
All that is pure
The day the stars aligned.

Creating the perfect monster
The day the earth stood still

We must come to a halt
And reverse what has been done
Ask questions and further yourself
To break free from the chains
Track Name: Magenta Pt. 2: Astral Projection (Feat. Mirza Radonjica)
· LYRICS ·

In the beginning there was the void
Slowly, but surely, existence emerged
The light was glowing bright
Brighter than anything

We must come to a halt
And reverse what has been done
Ask questions and further yourself
To break free from the chains

It brought the promises of better days
Because all the world’s a stage

Let a thousand flowers bloom
The color of Magenta
Blazes in the radiant light
It will penetrate and illuminate the night
None of the fright, which used to occupy our minds

Will be present, for this is a new beginning
A start of epic proportions
This will be the one for the books.

In dream worlds only metaphysical thoughts exists

Astral projection is the only way out
Nothing but doubt clouds our minds

Break free from the chains
Of the torrent of the flow
Forward thinking is essential.
We are merely players
We have our exits and our entrances
In the hall of fame, of life

It brought the promises of better days
Because all the world’s a stage

Let a thousand flowers bloom
The color of Magenta
Blazes in the radiant light
It will penetrate and illuminate the night

In the beginning there was the void
Slowly, but surely,
Dock your vessels at the skyharbor
Paradise awaits us.
Track Name: Parallel Passage
· LYRICS ·

I lose myself.
I lose myself
At an incredible pace
Fluctuating through
The realm of time and space
Everything melts together

Distorting my sight
I feel powerless
I’m stripped of might
However in control
of this obscure disorder

The horizon is a blur
Everything is relative
The horizon is a blur
All is relative
Affection is all around

It’s filling me with elation
I gaze out of my shell
There are lights everywhere
I gaze out of my shell

The realm of time and space
Everything melts together
It’s all so beautiful
Complex in its appearance

Distorting my sight
I feel powerless
Stripped of might

They should have sent a poet.
Track Name: Euphoric State
· LYRICS ·

Evoking tragedies of old
Exhaling with regret
Determining my state
My dreamless state
Reaching out to find
Reaching out to find
Solace in the most barren of places
This descend is long
Unbearably long
Bringing to mind
That of myths

A time where none was present

This moment
Suspended in time
The fondness of being isolated
This moment
Suspended in time
This exhale was not of regret

The soil was golden, demiurgic
Heavenly in the most
Literal meaning
This exhale was not of regret.

But euphoric pure ecstasy
I coursed through my veins
With an eternal elegance
This eternal elegance
Was only surpassed
By the most beautiful
Thing in the world

This moment
Suspended in time
The fondness of being isolated
This moment
Suspended in time
This exhale was not of regret
Track Name: Everlasting Bliss
· LYRICS ·

Emersion, excursion
Crafting a diversion.
Diverting out of this place
On for a new hope
Laying my body to rest

Not in passing but as
A transient unconscious vessel

Light befalls
A figure emerges
Awakening me from my inactivity
Assuring its altruism
It drags me out
Of my confinement

What bestows my eyes
Is that of legends
Infinite possibilities

What bestows my eyes
Is that of legends.
Infinite possibilities

Light befalls
A figure emerges
Awakening me from my inactivity
(We’re all made of stardust)
Assuring its altruism
It drags me out of my confinement

Everlasting bliss
Never have I encountered such splendor
It takes my hand
Bliss soars through me
Its affection is unparalleled
We are all made of stardust
