blistering sun for days i’ve run hiding myself from you… hiding myself from you bleeding concealing pleading leave me alone… get your own scissor cut mental home pre-lingual safety zone mad childhood ego state step back don’t touch me… let go! i’m anticipating… over undulating… today me not me what do you see… hiding in a bush … behind that tree if you knew what i’ve been through… you’d be hiding with me too heal me completely know me you’re so close to where i am guntrip you’re the man the doctor understand oh guntrip you’re the man i put my fear in your… hands

Take 1… action! The light is just right, the shadows are in Your movement is sultry get closer, your love is for him There’s glare upon your pale face, just raise your chin The part is full surrender, let the story begin Honesty… you give, receive, Always be you Let your eyes be windows, through the crowd crescendo In the moment let go Can you feel them watching you Just forget they’re watching you You are what you are… you’re a celluloid star, If your fame takes you far, more than beauty you are interlude The clock is turning backward in the movie of you The scenes are growing awkward… is it possibly true You lost your self for fear of falling… from the stardom you knew They sold your sex, your face, your body… and you couldn’t refuse Your name in lights won’t last forever But you lust to be news And when the audience cheered “how clever!” Then your fantasy grew Ha hey… shouldn’t we kiss? Sa say… dramatics Succumb to beg, steal or borrow Get your studio picture to play In a false life of fakeness to follow Where oblivion blows you away Don’t cry… (cut... cut), Your eyes…call makeup! Win praise for skill and ambition The remarkable faces you make Shoot thru your depression conditions Miss Fanatical please take the stage No… no… no! I saw you change from dreamer to heartache - bad publicity blues The camera keeps rolling darling… in the movie of you Vivling hear me now I don’t want to lose you to someone else somehow I don’t want to share you on the silver screen Honesty… you give, receive Always be you Let your eyes be windows through the crowd crescendo In this moment let go Can you feel me watching you Don’t forget I’m watching you

See … when you fall asleep deep inside a looking glass and if you have a vision and it takes you far on a silent moonbeam to a shooting star When the morning comes and you return share the things you learn when you have gone… through the door Be… all that you can be for how long will this wonder last Teach… all that you can reach, so much is misunderstood We were once just children with a heart so young and our thoughts were simple, let the spirit run Now the world has changed… those days are gone but you can still believe and go beyond… through the door (2:09 instrumental) Colors floating all around me though converting I’m the same Gone the bones and flesh that bound me I’m receding from the game (4:11 instrumental) See me, do you? See deeply thru you I… I am coming to you... to you (5:47 instrumental) Hey… hey, come what may Hey… I have a thesis -we’re nothing but pieces in a puzzle that’s made Hey… when matter releases and craving here ceases you won’t need a name Hey… over here hey… velocity eases… when panic decreases no hurry to wait You may want to know… where did I go… Is it cold… am I alone? You can talk to me… through telepathy … unconventional self Know your tendencies… love your enemies… look inside you can tell Your reality... is duality… I do wish you do well… as you may You can follow me … thru this odyssey… unconventional self Know your tendencies… love your enemies… only time here will tell If you come with me… in love secrecy… bid the world a farewell Your reality... is duality… I do wish you do well… and you may (10:30 instrumental) See… deep inside your dreams and one day you’ll be living them If you have a vision and it takes you far, can you take me with you through the door beyond? When the journey ends and we dissolve Who remembers then to carry on? There’s a photograph when we were young You were laughing and my eyes were closed... (Fading Outro)

about

TCP's second progressive release includes guests Tom Shiben (bass), Nicole Tarnecky (backup vocals), and features Glenn Arpino (keys) along with his epic piece, Vision. TCP's 2009 debut CD, The Way, was a critical success that landed the band on many top 10 lists for the year. Fantastic Dreamer sees them further refine their sound, adding depth and layers to the foundation previously established. Deftly blending elements of classic-era and modern progressive rock, the nine tracks that make up Fantastic Dreamer showcase a haunting and emotive blend of vocals.

“...the fact that remains is that I have been fascinated by this album and what it has to offer to the point that it has been continuously playing for the past 2 weeks.”
- Nuna Lourenco (Portugal), Proggnosis (May 04, 2011)

“[TCP] has probably produced the best album of 2011. After the amazing The Way (2009), these brilliant “Yankee” minds have delivered a masterpiece. Fantastic Dreamer is a treasure chest full of rich progressive, well-crafted music...”
- Jordi Costa, Sinfomusic (Spain) (May 16, 2011)

“...simply one of the best releases of 2011”
- Ron Fuchs, Prognaut (US) (Jul 13, 2011)

“Although it’s still early days, TCP have undoubtedly come up with my favourite album of 2011 thus far. They skilfully combine modern progressive rock sensibilities with the drama and (slightly eccentric) grandeur of bands like Genesis and Gentle Giant...”
- Geoff Feakes (UK), Dutch Progressive Rock Pages (May 08, 2011)

“Think what it would have been like if Wish You Were Here era Pink Floyd had decided that they wanted to merge with Gabriel era Genesis to create a new, but familiar sound and then add a more contemporary verve and a cutting edge production. You're getting there now, but there are still plenty of twists and turns to make Fantastic Dreamer into what should genuinely be held up as a progressive rock classic - and I don't say that lightly.”
- Steven Reid (UK), Fireworks Magazine (May 03, 2011)

“an engaging amalgam of compositional sophistication with math-rock undercurrents; wide contrasts in dynamics, dramatic vocal delivery and stellar musicianship.”
- Eric Harabadian, Progression Magazine - Issue 62 (Aug 08, 2011)
