People of Earth, your attention please!

This week I'm pleased to present you with another one of the demos we recorded in New York at the start of the year for our forthcoming album "Genesis".

We recorded about 15 tracks for the forthcoming Genesis album, and will share a few of them here for you lucky Bandcamp Subscribers!

Have a great weekend :)

Electronically Yours,


System of Pleasure
Written by John von Ahlen

Verse 1
I'm in a hurry but I'm waiting for nothing
It doesn't make sense, my life was meant to be something

Pre Chorus 1
But are you waiting for the morning light
Do you think its better in the afterlife?

My life meant nothing till I met you
A true believer, misunderstood
Now I share my feelings with the world

Verse 2
Could I be wrong, maybe life's not so amazing
I should leave the house, but the truth is I'm lazy
Been waiting for days yeah

Pre Chorus 2
Who do you think you're fooling?
You don't hold the treasure
We're all trying to find it
A system of pleasure
So don't be fool!
