From where we sit we see it all / never-ending global tragedies unfold / and the HDR looks like it was CGI / but baby hear that scream? / no we're desensitized / we see it all / no but we can't feel nothing at all / watching the world BLEED / BURN / WE'RE DOOMED
2.
You've given me shit since I was small / I've met thousands of fuckers like you / You all speak in the same smug condescending tone / but I've always seen right through / I've had to laugh your jokes, had to work at your stores / follow your laws obey your rule / tried to mold me to be one of you I never quite fit / yeah i never wanted to be you, yeah / you've been bosses you've been cops you've been teachers and family / kids at school, all kinds of authority / heteronorm homophobe misoginyst man / you act so tough and in control / by using bravado, machismo and arrogance / threats and power and physical violence / and you've built a world where you and your fucking clones / beat any pieces that don't fit into your mold / yeah and i know the shit i've tolerated doesn't compare / to the horrors you put others through / though physically i may resemble, you're my anti-role model / fuck the norms of this gender / i don't wanna be like you / don't wanna be like you / not like you / not a man like you / fuck it up now / don't wanna be that / don't wanna be like you / take it to the bridge one time, come on / hit me now / bring it back / don't wanna be that / don't wanna be like you / take it to the bridge, one more time / fuck it / fuck it up / come on / say not gonna be and never wanna be, but is that me? / call me out / hit me with my hypocriticality / i'm not exempting me or standing on a soapbox trying to preach / i'm trying to undo this conditioning from my upbringing / i'm sorry for my fuck ups / try to listen, grow, change be who i wanna be / an ally in the fight against them / don't wanna be that / don't wanna be like you / one more time to the bridge now come on / good god / ya boy / u got this / and i'm telling you, fuck the fucking patriarchy / and end this shit right now come on

Can't connect / and what do you feel / do you feel anything? / what do you feel? / you feel love? / do you feel love? / i don't think you really feel anything at all / cuz i saw them breathless / cuz i saw them gray / cuz i saw them lifeless / and i watched decay / and now you tell me that i'm loveless / that i don't feel deep / the only reason i'm heartless / is this heart's too weak / frozen / gone numb / no heart / robot
4.
You wanna stray from the path that was laid out ahead? / Yah there's a straight ahead path, but are you curious? / What else do you think there could be? / Just a bit further what you see? / Do you dare to hold onto a dream? / It's strange to stray from this path if your success don't show up in cash / You tell yourself you got something else that they all lack / I heard you singing come on let's go / Into the wild, into the unknown / Just take this risk or you'll never know / Troubles may come along the way / but don't ya hesitate / every choice is yours baby, there's no such thing as fate / No destiny we got free will / convince yourself the glass is half full / Though the past will always try to pull / Still feels like it's the wrong place / Some kind of cosmic mistake / Shake me from this nightmare, I wish I could awake / Through failure, loss, let down and pain / What can you do with what remains / Keep pushing just don't break from the strain / Still wanna blow my mind, I wanna lose my head / I wanna take a risk cuz soon enough you know I might be... / Low on confidence, full of self-doubt / Come on beautiful, sort your shit out / No fucks left to give, so sing it out

Day after day hear “we're fucked” / out of time and of luck / no fucking hope / no more future / 8 billion waste creators / violent species causing pain / world's already begun to strain / the last thing this fucking world needs / another one, so why breed? / one more cog in a fucked up system / why bring more into this prison? / the last thing this fucking world needs / another human so why breed? / why breed?

Shut up already / Damn come on / Shut the tv off / Shut the internet off / Shut your phone off / Come on / Forget your age / Forget your past / Forget these contradictions / Forget all this confusion / Shut up / Don't even entertain that thought / Turn your phone off / Turn the internet off / Forget these contractions / Forget all this confusion / And everyone who ever put a doubt inside your head? / Where they at? / This fucking ringing in my head! / Turn it off! / And everyone who ever put a doubt inside your head? / Where they at? / Do U Now / Forget your age / Forget your past / Forget all those contradictions / Forget all this confusion / Don't even entertain that thought / Focus / So whatcha gonna do? / Do U Now / U got this / Do U Now / Come on / U got this / Do U Now

I hear your cries from far away / The sight of corpses breaks my heart every day / Wish I could help you, wish I could save / Into the sun / Out of the cage / But the walls aren't glass / The walls are thick / The disconnect? / It does the trick / And the assembly lines go on and on / Endless deadly rhythm / And I step off my soapbox and I look in a mirror / No / I can't help you / I can't save you / I can't reach you / I won't save you / We're all born into this fucking mess / We're all born into this fucking mess / Broken hearts still beating in our chests / Trying to get by in this fucking mess / Stay while you can / Do what you can / No / You'll never see sun / You'll be wrapped in plastic and sold / Stay while you can / Do what you can
8.
Everything fades away / and now I'm gone / The whole world starts to fade away / with my headphones on / It's a world within itself / and now I'm gone / dream and scheme / with my headphones on / cuz outside / it's too confusing baby / everyone is running around / and I can't understand their priories / and their beliefs and their values / and they're always telling me what to do / and they're always telling you what to do / and it's just so much noise and so much anger / this whole fucking world seems like it's a mess of pain / and sadness and hate and stupidity / i can't take it anymore / i'm all alone / so i'll stay here / and now i'm gone / cuz i'm not quite here / with my headphones on / and the whole world starts to fade away / yeah the whole world starts to fade away / i can feel you start to fade away / and the whole world starts to fade away / i can feel you start to fade away / “hit the lights / I've had enough” / enough of this / and the whole world starts to fade away / “hit the lights” / i can feel you start to fade away / as the whole world starts to fade away / yeah the whole world starts to fade away / i can feel you start to fade away

about

Founded in Vancouver by musician Elliot Langford (SSRIs, The Rebel Spell, Sprïng, Big EviL, Togetherness), Freak Dream is a new project with one EP under its belt and a relentless, energetic live show. Inspired by the work of solo producer artists such as Nine Inch Nails, Prince, and Grimes, Freak Dream takes the cathartic energy of punk (Converge, Blood Brothers), and the textures of noise-rock (HEALTH, Melt Banana), combined with post-hardcore influenced vocals.

The project’s first full-length album, Into the Sun, will be released on Toronto-based Artoffact Records on September 21st

Described by Overblown as "an unrelenting blast of swirling feedback, tense synths, saturated vocals, and tightly wound songwriting," Freak Dream is bending genres and creating a wild, techno-punk admixture of sonic assaults guaranteed to get the dopamine flowing.
