Funk-A-Trunk 08:56
Awaiting that final slug In the backseat of an oil burner An old ‘60 lime green hardtop Rolled out straight from the dealer Merely good to be sunk in the pond Mother of all black holes Where hapless small-time crooks Are all stripped from their gold Permanently erased from the books Amid scents of sodden carpets And heavy smell of cigarettes Silent ride in my four-wheeled coffin Only the sounds of a run down engine For both of us… the end is near! Step inside and take place There’s more than enough space Between the spare tire and hydraulic jack Four were gone and three came back! Fear the clunk of the trunk… Hear the clunk of the trunk… Feel the trunk… Untalented gangsters! Self-serving bookers! Sympathetic thugs! Half-hearted triggers! Retiring streetwalkers! Loud mouths & lawyers! Washed-out gamblers! Greedy blackmailers!

Mantes praying to their God Are hiding behind their faith Lies, lies, lies, spewing from their mouth Preachers acting like creators Reciting self-serving lies Gushing with every breath Pray to my God, pray to my God! Better get down on your knees Dread my God, dread my God! Beware of the sacred doll Fear my God! Preaching ever so loud To cover the rattling of bones in the closet Doom, doom, doom, coming from above Everyone talking ever so fast Everyday to hide the emptiness Doom, doom, doom, looming down on all of our heads Better get down on your knees Beware of the sacred doll Fear my God! Self-worth measured by the amount of cloth Or in the string tied around your wrist Guilt, guilt, guilt is served aplenty Don’t question the written words Never mind how the world has changed Guilt, guilt, guilt enough for everyone Don’t mind my situation Sacrifice will be good for you Give, give, give, it's never enough We must commune in opulence We're in dire need of a glorious temple Give, give, give, and then you can give some more Accusations flying all around Fingers pointing in all directions Shame, shame, shame, shame in every move Spying eyes looking all around Remaining blind to their own reflection Shame, shame, shame!

Lap Of Love 06:34
We are alone now, just the two of us Excited, she slips out of her leather dress Let my fingers caress her smoothness I can't take my eyes off her Never alone, I can take her everywhere Just tuck her under my arm and we're under way I feel whole with my girl on my lap I feel warm with her sitting on top I whisper her sweet nickname and we spend the night chatting away I love her so, because she bytes into life And I know that such a beauty you have to Twitter right Never alone, I can take her everywhere Just tuck her under my arm and we're under way I feel whole with my girl on my lap I feel warm with her sitting on top All of my "friends” know of our connection Linked by emotions, icon of love Soon we will be together Joined forever in MySpace When the world is cruel, we both hide in “virtuality” Enjoy our big house; drive one of our sport cars I am a big man and I lead a big life Nothing but the best or so it seems …and so it Sims Never alone, I take her everywhere Tuck her under my arm, we're under way I feel whole with my girl on my lap I feel warm with her sitting on top In the park or on the plane with coffee or with champagne Travel around with her on my lap do everything with her on top HD camera, big screen and latest card she is so pretty With the new version we'll do even more… We are so compatible …Skype’s the limit Or is it my bank account? Forever together and content I'm as happy as they .com As long as she's on my lap Of the world I am on top

Sentenced 06:12
I am the son of a son, of a son of a man So many generations, carved a path I can’t deviate from The silver spoon was shoved down my mouth from the start I can’t be held responsible for my good fortune Just lucky, I guess, to be born with the "good" sex and in the "right" family My prayers are all answered Even before I finish them My hands have always been clean And my back has never been broken I have everything anyone can wish for But in my eyes you will find no pride As every day, I rake in a bigger pile I’ve been sentenced for a life in a harem, sucking on Candy's toes Spend my days in Amber's arms Weekend trip flying around the moon There is no escape in dreams Prisoner of a life, subject of everyone’s envy My wishes were all granted as another bride settling in And as for my spirit, it will never been broken I’ve been sentenced for a life in a harem, sucking on Candy's toes Spend my days in Amber's arms Weekend trip flying around the moon There is no escape in dreams Prisoner of a life, subject of everyone’s envy

Here And Now 06:55
Here and now is a very good place to be A place we’ve never shared In a constant search for hotter streams Every footprint vanishes into another Who could ask for more? When the day is ceased more than before Back then planes would not fly Split by a screen that could not lie Dreams ejected out of reach Collapsed down on concrete streets Every second has its special moment Any movement’s followed by another Frozen in time on and on… Animation that lights up hopes and dreams Grow bright in perpetuity Through the glimpse of one another But before, all I could see Were the paths I would never take And the mistakes I could not make Before time would run out on me Nothing but moments of pure happiness Never seems to last quite long enough Squeeze them as hard as you can Unlike sand they will always run out of grasp And the time between blissful instants Feels like it drags, it drags on for too long You wonder if it’s gonna last forever Like rain that ruined your whole day Like cold that ruined your whole week Can’t let it rule your whole life Better shield yourself, and wait Memories and pictures, covering your whole life Doubts and fears holding you in place Shame and guilt weighting upon you Memories and pictures, ruling your whole life Doubts and fears you can’t go forward Shame and guilt hold your head down Down, down, down I wanna live right now Don’t wanna wait anymore For a deal that may never be offered For a better hand that will never ever be dealt Here and now the one place to be All this time that we share In a constant state of harmony Every footprint completes all the others I couldn’t ask for more Better live here and now

I don't want you! I don't want you! I don't need you! We don't want you! We don't need you! I won't let you! In my country! We won't let you in my country! Smile! For there is a gig tonight Laughs! Enough for the whole ride Hope! For there is a gig tonight Joy! Enough for the whole drive Hand resting on the butt of his gun Suspicion included in every question This wannabe hero with an icy smile Protecting this human drawn line Frown! There won't be a gig tonight Weep! We are forced to turn back Gloom! There won't be a gig tonight Sad! We are forced to go home Many hours we wasted in vain Stuck in a bright, dry, unfriendly room That smells paranoia So many questions Unwelcome, where is the "freedom" We’ve heard so much about, that this land is so famous for? Red flag and thumb prints we will keep Hand closing on the butt of his gun Suspicion aroused by some of our answers This wannabe hero with a stony smile Won't let us cross this human drawn line Smile! There won't be a gig tonight We don't want you! No we don't need you now! Now! We’re on our way back We won't let you in our country! Joy! There won't be a gig tonight We don't want you! No we don't need you now! Now! We are pleased to go home

Lost 05:00
Magic ride on a big yellow bus Going down to another great boring day at the institution Started on a path of knowledge But ended up in a cloud of smoke I lost my way down a rabbit hole Climbing, dropping, looping On a roller coaster of life Stumbling down on a road leading to wisdom With a little help from my friends I lost my bearing on the Milky Way Taking a cruise on a sea of booze A very long, long way from school Homework soon forgotten, in the bottom of a bottle I though I had it, I was so cool I lost my way looking through a mirror Fearless and bullet proof Nothing could stand in my way Lessons, couldn’t drag me out of my daydreams, lost in the haze Some opportunities, now long gone That I let fall along the wayside And seeking higher comprehension Drifting off in search of a muse Baked by the midday sun Rocked by a gentle breeze Rolling me back inside Slipping away from education I hid in a mushroom patch I lost myself in the sirens' call My devilish friends walk before me, they took over my whole life I lost my mates and love for some gravy When your next dream becomes all that matters, you become an addiction I got to change my way before it takes me away …it takes my away Now that the fog as lifted My mind isn’t what it used to be My skin is a map of my journey Bright color memories fading away I had to lose sight of the shore, to find this brave new …land

Liar 05:43
Out of the blue nailed in a zombie state Pinned down by the machine gun raid At which this lad throws off his babble For his ballyhoo is a noisy offering In every word and sentence An urgency to prove to you something Overblown stories Broad half-baked... cheats! Superficial bore …think I heard this one before… He relies on a first-class memory To recall and keep up to his past deceits Forever entwined in a crooked world That crushes and mix reality He played the game for years But a number he never worn He stands strangely unnoticed For someone who’s worldwide known Overblown stories Broad half-baked... cheats! Superficial bore Sorry but I’m pretty sure I heard this one before! Always on the fringe of plunging Worried like a stand up comic’s ego To crash naked on a failing punch line And melt through the stage floor He’s just a bad actor cast in a sad movie He lost his ground inside his own reality…

about

Their best work to date... Hamadryad is back on top with this new release. If you are looking for good rock music, original work, and well crafted songs ...well this one's for you. Enjoy !
Unicorn Record

Intrusion is a musical supernova. Everything you could conceivably wish for in an album of progressive music is here. From the avant garde, to moments of pure acoustic grace. The musicianship of each player is absolutely top-notch. "Get your hands on this album ...if anyone ever wants to know what prog sounds like, just wave this CD under their noses."
9.5 out of 10, JON BRADSHAW (The Dutch Progressive Rock Page)
