about

The underlying message behind ‘FLUX’ is that of finding your balance amidst turmoil and severe changes. It is about letting go of the notion that if something is static and predictable, then it is safe. As guitarist Magnus explains; “The world is going through some quite dramatic changes, and that is of course reflected in each and every one's personal life. If you base your tomorrow on your yesterday, it is going to be quite painful to go through all these changes. FLUX offers some sparks and hints on how to surf the waves of change, rather than drowning in them.”

lyrics

DISCONNECTING FROM THE GRID
I SEE BEYOND THIS MORTAL TOY
NEUROMANTIC NOT SURPRISED
TO BE A PART OF SCI-DEFIED REALITY
I SEE NO TV READ NO NEWS
WHEN I WAS YOUNG A BLEW A FUSE
MY DAYS ARE STRICTLY FILLED
WITH FIRST HAND XP

I KNOW I’M WISE BEYOND MY FEARS
AND THAT’S REALLY REALLY COOL
UNTIL I FIND MYSELF
LOGGED ON AGAIN
ANDREW LLOYD WORLD WIDE WEBBER
SING! SING ME OFF THIS THING

I’M PINGING ALL OF THE TIME
IT’S REALLY MAKING ME CHIME
MAKING ME CHIME
IT’S JUST YOU
NO IT’S NOT
IT DOES NOT BELONG TO ME
SOMETHING IS BREATHING THROUGH ME
AND I DON’T GET IT
THAT’S CRUDE
REALLY THAT’S CRUDE
IT’S THEM
NO IT IS NOT
I CAN NOT BLAME ANYONE BUT ME

MAN YEAH I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN
I’VE BEEN HALF ASLEEP FOR DAYS AND FOR WEEKS
SOMETHING
IS BREATHING THROUGH ME
you know how
I CAN’T DISCONNECT RIGHT NOW

MY HALF-DEAD BODY IS KEPT AWAKE
I’M HOOKED A LUNG
THESE BREATHS ARE NOT MY OWN
THOUGH THEY TRACE TO MY IP
MASS CONSCIOUSNESS FEEDS ON US ALL
AND I KNOW THIS CALLS
FOR PRESENCE
BUT RIGHT NOW I CAN’T
I’M JUST A MAN

I’M PINGING ALL OF THE TIME
IT’S REALLY MAKING ME CHIME
MAKING ME CHIME
IT’S JUST YOU
NO IT’S NOT
IT DOES NOT BELONG TO ME
SOMETHING IS BREATHING THROUGH ME
AND I DON’T GET IT
THAT’S CRUDE
REALLY THAT’S CRUDE
PULL THE PLUG
NO I JUST CAN’T
I CAN-CAN-CAN CONTROL THIS NOW

SOMETHING IS RESPIRATING me
- AN ALVEOLUS THAT CAN BE
SO MUCH MORE
I DISCONNECT RIGHT NOW
