i can’t sleep tossing night to night dreams repeat… nothing new survives at your feet torn apart 1000 sparks go free what I think matters numb the mind where’s the link merging light divine out of sync torn apart 1000 sparks ignite like stars in me… yea… yea! on the brink living out the time false rethink where the purpose lies torn apart 1000 sparks go free… with ease!
tightening in my face… is that all important road tightening round my legs… is that all important road as i drift away… fall away… slip away… run away how long did i wait… for the all important road how can i keep pace… on the all important road if i drift away… fall away… slip away… run away if you’ve got time for the forest of lovelys where cocaine meets coffee and the cigarette butt i don’t mean maybe… i don’t mean just listen to… i mean just get there and be there with us nod if you’re going… with calm simple knowing… smile if you feel it… resolve if you don’t show me… tell me… about the forest of lovelys… help me show me to get there lead me believing… in the forest i’m dreaming… steering… pushing through the air living… crying… in the forest i’m trying… tempt me… with the passion to get there if you’ve got time for the forest of lovelys with real deal compassion and childlike trust travel with patience don’t tire of rotations devised repetitions to see what you’ve got world in vibration perceptions sensations where everything seems to be something it’s not tightening in my face is that all important road tightening round my legs is that all important road as i drift away… fall away… slip away… run away how long will it take… on the all important road how to keep the faith… on the all important road if i drift away… fall away… slip away… run away
what drives you hard and rolls you out of bed what takes your breath away she gently said… impetus the worm will turn and you’ll be back again just when that thought occurs you reach the end stoic in the morning mist birds await their sustenance little house along the shore beautiful with yellow door boats a sleeping in their slips rising comes the sun to kiss all of this what was before every human knows there’s more oh… here it comes again oh… down from deep within impetus… impetus my eyes mesmerized... as all these things keep happening you spark a smile surprise... devise and lead these geared events to be i’m on my knees what’s building up inside… it’s all begun… to feel so right a flash of elohim… to bridge the everlasting spirit sea so we can meet eyes… true… to you alone… relax… relax your mind… you’re free… I’m inside… oooohooo i come to crystallize… the thoughts that run behind your eyes truly consuming the power lies inside… the more you want the less you find so just relax and think as you breathe… you’re free my light is always on… the shutters close when you have gone…. doing… not concentrating in peace how tell… where you are among the stars you dawn from far beyond and heretofore you give me more is there enough to alter one soul reveal everything… your tapestry of subtleties you have it all… some troublesome… some wonderful i trust whenever you come… words will flow through me i must deliver myself… sublime will take me deeper ooooh what drives you hard and rolls you out of bed just when that thought occurs you reach the end
just say it… it’s easy… you know it… you know it i wonder… how pleasing… the world is you covet oh when the forces come… to complicate the love we made before how could you shut the door i made it… so crazy you know it… you know it i’m over… the meaning… the weight of... the moment oh when the forces come… it’s hard to change… to rearrange it all why should I tell you more her love was like money… so easy to take in a garden like “eden”… and i was the snake wait… for that someone to break you take… more than others can give let me take another look at you saturday I tried to lick the wounds let me take another look at you nothing left for me to win or lose till the day i’m gonna pick and choose let me take another look into when and if I ever live with you can we talk about the forces… before we start the wars? where does the essence go when will we ever know lovers are only as good as they are when they feel it’s right lover can you sleep at night lady you’re lonely I know that you are scared inside there… you hide
what you know is what you see… to get a glimpse of what could be just try to love me as i am the night is chill and long to walk… i’d rather sit in silent talk… with you inside my shell protections on… i have to leave to go beyond just try to love me as you can electric days… the cosmic way… bring me to you yea… you see me as I am connected notions… in dream slow motion my wings will harden soon i’ll fly beneath your moon and may devotion… like one big ocean gold then blue… deep and true… bring me to you come on look see me now… I stand unraveled know my flit thru time is shallow by design somehow yea… lead me by the sun yea… billions go and come kingdom come… by scent i follow in the end there’s no tomorrow take us one by one yea… bring me by the sun yea… say the journeys done… yea… billions go and come… come… come
can you stop your heart… if you want to take control of your breath… can you undue and fantasize keep it there in the air… what you’re thinking better still… just refill… what you’re drinking and fantasize me it’s a fait accompli… yea... yea i want you in deep you can stop it all if you want to and fantasize me paradise is nice… it could come too but ya gotta get down… what you won’t do and fantasize me… it’s a fait accompli… yea… yea i want you so deep you can hit the wall if you want to… or fantasize me my head is screaming like a demon what’s the reason I’m emotive in this vortex to you there’s counter swirling as this tempest is unfurling yet i smile sublime so new i can feel your warmth… your core… essentially the force you are press your face… revive… reform… the subtleties that turn you on you can stop the world if you want to you can have it all if you undo... yea... yea you can have it all why… take… so… much… time… to relate… oh my can’t wait… too long… step to the plate… zing zong taste this… tongue cat… I’m in to you… don’t look at that… inside outside… i feel addicted but nothing’s wrong lady you lay beside me… my feelings rush through the air when we touch… oh so much… moves through us... oh-eee-oh the world could be turning slowly… the world could be moving fast… I want to forever show you… how you get all you can… from my heart… when we part… time must stop... for us years how they pass us by tears how they cleanse our lives god knows i fantasize leadings with you in the blue here as I raise my eyes god knows I fantasize please when i sacrifice keep me in paradise into the blue
some people think that they… are invincible somebody say that you… have no principles… nothing to believe… within don’t say much ha love… it’s all in the touch child need no reasons… waiting for you is enough come into me… so soon there will be seismic completion make no worry that you cannot see how this ends soul liberty the will to perceive is third eye limited… oh oh succumb to the world… of light somebody say that you… have no principles some people think that they… are invincible
she wandered away before… i lost all I had and more her hunger for life her creed she willed her own destiny… in the flame she told me our love was real… but left me so cold i wanted to keep her near but she knew that… we went through that… in the flame suffer the world … suffer the pain… after this winter… I may never love again said she loved me once… but now there’s something else how to place my bet… it’s hard for me to tell withering winds… saddening rains… gather my own intent… i’m alive and here I am never forget her touch… and how she looked at me how could she know so much… was never meant to be… oh yea! whose life… it’s yours or mine… what truth is ours to find can i ever let this go… in another time i hope who knows the wrong and right… what turns the dark to light i don’t know the road I’m on… is my sense of balance gone? walking in a field alone discover only what a fool could see wonder will it be this way forever surely love was meant to be… meant to be meant for me the rain keeps falling down… the forces all around… are sensitizing me i can feel your worry from a distance i want to comfort and complete… your memory of me i want to satisfy your need i will cover you… i will cover you i will wrap my arms around you … you will never feel the cold if you let my heart inside too… you will never be alone like a spinning top i will never stop… defying what is known i will cover you… i will cover you from the water’s edge to the mountain ledge i will play my part and protect your heart if your soul desires i will quench the fires… i will cover you i will be there till the end loving you… no matter what you do tell me to… and i’ll cover you it’s alright… it’s alright it’s alright child, it’s alright to say you’re down when the winds of fortune blow your life around and the longing that you feel is so confounding ‘cause you thought your will was steeled surrender… no more pretender… open yourself to me shake up… come on and wake up… before the world deceives it’s a very fine line you come to… can you cross without the heart fulfilled the soul is lost can you feel my eyes upon you… i’ll be waiting in the flame waiting… waiting in the flame i’ll be waiting in the flame


After a prolonged five year episode of life-gets-in-the-way, TCP enthusiastically comes back with their third release, Temporal Chaos, an album filled with the band’s unmistakable penchant for drama, twisted melodies, double-meaning lyrics, and the marriage of old and new. Opening with the edgy but strangely addictive Torn Apart and culminating in the epic In the Flame, could this be TCP’s best effort yet?


"Everything I was hoping for and more is here. Get this album and enjoy one of prog’s most innovative bands." - The Progressive Aspect (UK), Mark Johnson

“..with technical passages near King Crimson or Spock's Beard, but the whole remains close to the great Genesis, Pink Floyd or IQ! A progressive album par excellence that everyone must listen to! In the same spirit as the best work of Cyril or Mystery, this [album] is another precious essential!" - Music in Belgium (BE) 4.5 of 5 stars

"...the compositions will appeal to old and new fans of progressive rock. A progressive album par excellence that everyone must listen to...TCP again offers an excellent album to rank in my top 10." - Profil (CA) Rating: 9.2 of 10

“A good song is a good song and this album has the songs. If you’re tired of prog rock becoming stale, TCP is well worth checking out.” - Progressive Rock Planet (US), Rating: 8 of 10

“Intriguing, against-the-grain, sultry, and unexpected are the keywords...Highly recommended” - Progwereld (NL)

"In truth, TCP is among the most contemporary of American progressive acts....Its sound is edgy, dark, complex and - most essentially - richly satisfying." - Progression Magazine (US), Issue #70
