about

Totaling over 70 minutes, the eleven tracks that make up TCP's debut release, The Way, showcases the band's dynamic blend of dark, melodic vocals with extended instrumental interplay as layers of soaring guitar and keyboard passages lock into a solid foundation of shifting and complex rhythms.

“..the voice of Tarnecky is an incredible feature. Fans of progressive? ...jump on this album without hesitation!”
- Jean-Pierre Lhoir, Music in Belgium (May 05, 2009)

“I can't believe that the Genesis discussion boards aren't buzzing about TCP and "The Way."...best of all, the material and musicianship are top drawer! Highly recommended!”
- Michael Pennington, Sea of Tranquility - US (Apr 30, 2008)

“Progressive Band and Album of the Month, May 2009”
- Carlos Vaz, Prog Rock & Prog Metal - Brasil (May 21, 2009)

"The album deserves a ranking in the "World Ten", and TCP most certainly deserves your attention..."
- Markwin Meeuws, Progwereld (Netherlands) (Jul 21, 2009)

“If The Light, by Spock's Beard (1995) only vaguely predicted the incredible career which followed, The Way, by its force and its coherence, embraces these incredible hopes.”
- Christophe Gigon, Progressia (France) (Jul 01, 2009)

Track Name: You Can Never Know
geez… where the hell am i!
you can never know how your life will go
try to remember that you’re not the only one stuck on this planet my son

seize… every single day!
you can never know how your life will go
here for a moment than off you go again floating in spirit my friend

de…light in what you do!
you can never know how this life will go
will you keep your job… wear the same façade
you can never know… how your love will go
will you find the one… love until it’s done?

your conversations… can go on for hours… nothing is said
just cold opinion… no ground is given… typically then
you relive everything… swallow those ills again… mess up your head
how can you sleep… find inner peace… with anger looming there
turbulent dreams… stop if you think… somebody cares
seek the solution… soul evolution… until you do you won’t

are you still there?

where are you now!

you can never really know how this life will go
you can never really know
so let it roll… let it roll child
and save your rockin soul
you can never really know… so let it roll….. child… roll… child roll!

can you feel it… can you feel your rockin soul
can you see it… can you see what others don’t
you can never really know how this life will go!
Track Name: I'm Me
though once a slithered form
i stand erect transformed
to ask this question at your ease
my blood once cold now warm
my altered self reborn
what kind of human can i be

this shape you’ve taken is forbidden
your changeling trick cannot succeed
you must begin with what you’re given
is how its been and has to be

look for high secret inner visions
words scribed in rock in code in these
to get to where the heart is hidden
behold, the truth can set you free
to dream... believe...reach... deep... to see... that we... can lift ourselves
i wish you well

my shape shift soul device at will can change entice... take human form to seek advance

how to proceed from here... what comes if what we fear... allies gets fortified inside

het hey hut

i must abandon this like human form with power twist
snake eyes can realize
naga cut your serpent ties

shed it.. shed it skin.. shed it.. shed it skin.. shed it

shed it.. you won’t regret it no
you gotta vet the self and shed it then forget it
come on and let it go
the alter ego
tomorrow can... chi chi chi change

all the world up on my head
has made me who i am
a vagabond a friend to you

all the days and all the nights
i work my way to you
to you

by design though serpentine
before this life is through
it’s all that I could do... to be... like you


believe me... receive me... for who I am. transcend

oh so far and yet so near
i’m me, i’m me, i’m who i am
i’m me, i’m free... myself again

believe me.. receive me.. for who I am!

i’m me
Track Name: Mankind
You’re the weight on this world mankind
You’re a dominant force in time
Can you see what you do
It can happen to you
Your extinction if matters unwind

Mankind

When your cannons of war all align
And your blood is free flowing like wine
Can you stop what you do?
Is your nature so cruel?
To the heavens ya look for a sign

If the children are taught wrong from right
On a planet so blue do not fight
Could the lives that they choose
Free will that they use
Fashion a world more divine?

Mankind…mankind!

Emanating mass karma and fear
But you’re more then just animals here
Die when you do
The spirit of you
Passes beyond earthly tears

In your darkness the sun wants to shine
Let the light in your souls be defined
By the deeds that you do
And your governments too
Cause your future's a matter of ….mind

all the children in this world today
Brothers sisters of mankind
If the good inside ya leads the way
There can be a better time
Track Name: Heavy Billy
Instrumental
Track Name: Sheep
see your reflection
ask yourself
if that tv reason...

that stuff you feed on makes ya.... follow their mantra to believe... happily

show... me... what you’ve been reading
what’s... your... brain food today
try... to... be one and only
just... to... be that one sheep gone astray

sheep... love to gather when...there’s a leader then... they feel safe
we... will decide for you... fill the time for you... be your friend

we will do everything... just lay back don’t think... it’s okay
sleep... counting sheep will do... close your eyes 1-2-3-4 sleep

be your convictions
turn yourself
from that TV fiction... that stuff you tune in takes ya... away from your reality, honestly

show... me... what you’ve been reading
what’s... your... brain food today
try... to... be one and only
just... to... be that black sheep gone astray
Track Name: He's Like You
he’s a modern man who lost his calling
when the year began he felt like steel
now he’s sinking fast it’s quite appalling
in a desperate gasp he cry’s I’m here

Ooh you love him… ooh ya do
Ooh you love him… cause he’s like you

he use to dream a lot
got started good … then lost the heart
and then one day….the heart departs
he tumbles
down in a hole … he can’t resolve
how to live
God… forbid!
he grinds
he grinds

his brain is mash potato
psychotic elevated
he got no better than a 50/50 chance

condition aggravated
contortion nerve related
his hand is fisted for a monumental smash

he grinds
he grinds!

he’s a modern man who lost his feeling
in a circumstance assumed insane
now the die is cast and time keeps dealing
to forget the past he hides the pain
if the god in man can spark a healing
in a blinding flash his life could change
Track Name: Road to 2012
Instrumental
Track Name: Hypatia
right in front of me
starry galaxy
every scene that’s ever been

source of knowledge bliss
emanating disk
from the beam projects the dream

souls reflected long ago
have shaped the modern world we know
art - discoveries
philosophic seeds
still debating where it goes

books of science… plays performed upon the stage
from man’s injustice few were saved…hey

roll the stone away
live another day
save the future from the past
of Alexandria
maid Hypatia now they say… your life your works were burned in flames ….in vain!

she was a mathematician
a conic form magician..
taught in a male domain
when christians clashed with pagan thought came her tragic end
the last to work the library with esteem…oh to see her beauty then…. ah… ah!

astronomer… philosopher…did thoughts occur?… your precious words…
your life on earth… could… would… not… be… revoked in vain!
Track Name: She
chains can not hold me… though binding the flesh
as was before my heart was blessed
inside these walls… time runs slow
will martyrdom… release my soul … to her

stark… the stench… intense
a dungeon hell no pretense
fix my will and pray
i… will not waste here away

jailed my cause unjust
so said the lords among us
dared by freedom’s taste
i lie here cold in hunger, awake

dissident in agony… a dream diverts my mind
suddenly imagining… her body next to mine

she comes… inviting
she comes… exciting
she comes… like lightning…
she comes

(instrumental break)

SHE

i love her very very much
and conjure visions that we touch
imprisonment insanity
so goes this tragedy for me

scenes pass… dreams fade… a cold reality remains

hopeless… too late… to wonder what she’d say

oh girl… what if… i hold you … and keep you laughing
oh girl… what if… i told you … love’s everlasting

when occasions come that i don’t understand
that i can’t comprehend
i lift my gaze to her appealing…
one glimpse supplies my mortal need
then i think upon the beauty in her face…
the wonder of her grace

i hope she’s waiting….
where fate is saving…
a space divine should i go free

oh… does she see me… like… i see her
no… say her eyes in sympathy … down in me deep
she can conceive a blade of light… cut through the cracks…and illumine herself

she was the only
love can be lonely
how can i learn to live this way

chains can not hold me
time may disown me
why should i breath another day

to live and then to die
the heart unsatisfied
when will this ever end i fear

i laugh and then i cry
the spark inside the eye
holds me inside this lucid dream

she was the only
one that could show me
love can go on beyond this sphere….

she comes
oh lord she comes
yea… she comes
she comes…
she comes to comfort me… she
she is my light
Track Name: The Way
winds of worry blowing strong
the nights are cold the hours long
ya try to shed some light upon this place

the news reports are dark and blue
it’s clear this world is not for you
just try and keep a smile upon your face….okay

are we, are we really on
the quest for light to shine upon….us….
your free will is… all you have
to lift the veil and go beyond yourself
feel the peace of deep commune
you and i confide but must alone
find the course… and stay the way

one day samadhi you’re out of the body and well on your way
how does it feel when the light is revealed i can’t say

you gotta be tough and strong
and stay on the way

if you awake in a place void of matter
wait for me there

you gotta be tough and strong
and stay on the way

if you get where opal light shines the brightest
wait for me there

are we are we really on
the quest for light to shine upon….us

how are we
to know?
Track Name: Liberate Me
