about

The Evening Redness in the West Vancouver, British Columbia

This solo output of musician/producer Ryan Shepard

It casually melds the sneering lyrical warnings of NOFX with the militaristic melodic precision of early era Megadeth overcast with a dreary grungy gloom.

These are sad songs about the end of the world.

Track Name: Storm's A-Comin'
All hands on deck
A storm's a-comin'

All hands on deck
A storm's a-comin'
More frequent than ever before

The wind blows the trees
out from the Earth
The rain clouds keep fallin'
Except when you need it the most
The tides keep rising
Swallowing cities whole
The sun keeps shining
Rather burn than utilize

All hands on deck
A storm's a-comin'

All hands on deck
A storm's a-comin'
More frequent than ever before

There is no place to run
No where to hide
Nothing we can do
Except stop fucking the Earth

Stop polluting
Stop destroying
Stop with the arrogance
Stop with the entitlement
Stop destroying our home
Track Name: I Can See the Forest for the Trees
The eagle consumes at will
The apex predator
The beaver fells and dams
Ignorant of the flood
Ignorance that leads to
Confused patriot
Staring dumbfoundedly
In chains on scorched earth

Slash and burn
Industry
Slash and burn
Can't believe
Face the fact that evil
Has taken over
Everything we love
They've taken over

The eagle patrols above
The beaver dams below
Violence is used to maintain
Brutal strict control
Of petty resources
Confused Patriot
Staring dumbfoundedly
In chains on scorched earth

Slash and burn
Patriot excuse
Slash and burn
Look past the flag
Face the fact that evil
Has taken over
Taken over
They've taken over

I can see the forest for the trees
There's no fucking forest without trees
Our trail marches steep and to the right
The empires forest burns and bleeds

I can see the forest for the tress
There's no fucking forest without trees
The fascist forest only feeds the leaves
The empires forest burns and bleeds

Slash and Burn
Depleted
Slash and Burn
Everything
Face the fact that evil
Has taken over
Everything you see
Is taken over
Track Name: The Paradox
This song actually is an instrumental interlude!
Track Name: Never Ending Survey
Beginning transmission
Orbiting inhabitable world

Current lifeforms
Possess significant
Weapons which they
Use to settle
Minuscule Disputes

Recommend remote observation
Predict self-Armageddon extinction
Track Name: Uprising to the Occasion
Bad news
Things are getting worse
History repeats itself
Unless we make a change
We can do better than this
We must do better than this

Uprising to the Occasion
Uprising to the Occasion
Uprising to the Occasion
Deny their scorched Earth doctrine
Deny their system of lies

Guess What
Things are even worse
Than we are led to believe
Most folks been trained to ignore
That we can do better than this
We can do better

Rise up and disarm the corporate sponsored armies
Rise up and shut down the propaganda machine
A shadow society of puppeteers
Armed with the media and all the soldiers

Uprising to the Occasion
Uprising to the Occasion
Uprising to the Occasion

Rise up and disarm the corporate sponsored armies
Rise up and shut down the propaganda machine
Insatiable greed of the global elite
That spit in the face of all life on planet Earth

Uprising to the Occasion
Uprising to the Occasion
Deny their scorched Earth doctrine
Deny their system of lies
Track Name: Politician
Hey now baby, get into my big black car
Hey now baby, get into my big black car

I want to just show you what my politics are

I'm a political man and I practice what I preach
I'm a political man and I practice what I preach
So don't deny me, not when you're within my reach

I support the left
I don't trust the right
I support the left
I don't trust the right

I just might be there when it comes to a fight

Hey now baby, get into my big black car
Hey now baby, get into my big black car

I want to just show you what my politics are
Track Name: Terraform
Terraform
The moment when we become
What we once called god
Terraform
Germinating Earths
We can leave a wake of life
Terraform
Existences left long after
Our extinction

Folklore
Turned out to be
A prophecy
Not our history

Religion
Had it backwards
We create
We are the man in the sky

Terraform
The moment when we become
What we once called god
It's quite possible that this is
The meaning of life
Ascendance to the next level
Of existence
Terraform
Bestow evolution
What will they imagine to explain
Who created their Earth

Folklore
Turned out to be
A prophecy
Not our history

Religion
Had it backwards
We create
We are the man in the sky
Track Name: Cracks in the Crystalline
After all everything is made of patterns
After all everything is made of patterns
It's the errors that interest the most
When they repeat indefinitely

After all everything is made of patterns
After all everything is made of patterns
It's the errors that interest the most
When they repeat indefinitely

Formations of stone
Provide the error
Deemed by selection
To be worth repeating

Deemed by selection
To be worth repeating
The universe
Views itself through cracks
in the Crystalline
Track Name: Never Voted For
Remember when you voted for
Never ending war
Remember when you voted for
Fossil Czar
I never voted for
Military Police
We never voted for
Kings and queens

Spectacle of democracy
Attritionary form of conquistadors
Nothing has changed in a thousand years
including the bliss of ignorance

Remember when you voted for
Never ending war
Remember when you voted for
Fossil Czar
I never voted for
Military Police
We never voted for
Kings and queens

Debacle state of affairs
Military industrial complex
Has perfected the ultimate weapon in
Apathy

Remember when you voted for
Never ending war
Remember when you voted for
Fossil Czar
I never voted for
Military Police
We never voted for
Kings and queens

Remember when voting worked
complete farce
Remember when voting worked
Corrupt core
It has never fucking worked
Democracy
Corporate liege has you
On your knees
Track Name: The Crossroads
A proxy does not justify
The petty wars of our century
A cleverly designed excuse
Never ending war

Morals code is dead and gone
Obsolete by the paradox
Of peace and war mutually assured
Stop all the fuckin' fighting

They will say we destroyed
Ourselves
Not by perceived ideals
The consequence
Dictates circumstances
Uncontrollable

The will say it turned out
To be mercy disguised
An age required for
Mutual peaceful respect
How could the darkest light
Provide this reward

Morals of old are dead and gone
Burnt to a crisp, hypocrisy
Of peace and war mutually assured
We know you're fuckin' lying

Microcosm morality
A shadow of what used to be
The irony of peace and war
Stop all the fuckin' fighting

They tell us we need to
Destroy fellow humans
No way to resolve our
Slightly different view

System where pettiness
Trumps all forms of reason
The needs of the very few
Supersede everything else
