I know she’s behind those doors I've traveled the blackness to be here You can’t keep her from me Phantom spaceman tries to prevail when Circus sight line Your eyes fail again I know she's behind those doors I'll start by ripping up the floors Blue glowing fire brands and scores Phantom spaceman tries to prevail when Circus sight line Your eyes fail again Fan cooled spaceman tries to assail them Ex-face tie-line Falls by my men Sweet words that you speak To throw me off the trail Showing me a shriveled shell Loveless, eyeless, and frail Give me an answer Give me an answer Give me a reason to believe she's not here Give me an answer Give me an answer Give me a reason to believe Give me a reason to believe she's not here Phantom spaceman tries to prevail when Circus sight line Your eyes fail again

The Truth 02:56
I'm scared of you, scared of you Your eyes are blazing blue You make me tell the truth A royal feel to your posture Sitting on your throne Always kind to your subjects An always royal tone I'm scared of you, scared of you Your eyes are blazing blue You make me tell the truth Facing constant eye contact I try to guard my thoughts Your eyes ask silent questions I stumble without pause I'm scared of you, scared of you Your eyes are blazing blue You make me tell the truth A level of comfort That I thought I careful contained No reason to over-think this No sign of pain A friendly fire interrogation Leaves me grinning and weak Interlocked on our sides Unprovoked I speak I'm scared of you, scared of you Your eyes are blazing blue You make me tell the truth

City 03:44
Why is this city here? Why is this city here? There’s no river that flows through Why is this city here? There’s no port bringing spices from the Far East Why is this city here? There’s no nexus of railroad tracks Why is this city here? There’s no mine hiding gold and medicine Why is this city here? There’s no seat of worship adorned in deities Why is this city here? There was no battle to settle the war Why is this city here? There’s no oasis from oppressive flatlands Why is this city here? There’s no gateway to the New World Why is this city here? There’s no indigenous people offering fortunes for a price Why is this city here? There’s no old world money laundered in neon lights Why is this city here? There’s no ancient wonder built by faceless many There was a queen There was a queen There was a queen She was my queen

Trouble 03:46
Trouble I held your hand Like a suitcase with the codes to the bomb Handcuffed Struggle They blindsided me With a light so bright It was not of this world Solar Take me Take me Don't take her Trouble My fist slices through air She's gone They're gone The Don pays his respects Pays his respects

Saturday 05:35
Saturday is the morning of the rising sun The Eastern sun, the one that wakes me from my doubts Of talking behind backs and going on the attack And looking down my nose on someone who lacks But it’s been such a strange change of gears I’ve been trained for so many years This Saturday, I find myself still awake Closing each window, found the last room of shade But I put myself here, there’s no one else to blame It’s been such a strange change of gears I’ve been trained for so many years And I don’t know if I can follow you Each ray extends from the center touching everyone near I wanna be a rising sun, help to dry a stranger’s tears Realizing my love of toil is a masquerade of hidden greed Giving away my time, my touch, my voice, my deed I don’t know if I can follow you I’d be better off watching what I say or do It’s been such a strange change of gears And I hope that I can follow you

5 O'clock 05:21
It's getting brighter at 5 o'clock I can't believe I had those thoughts At the far end, behind the trees, It spills and brightens with positivity Owning, growing, no more paranoid morning It's getting brighter at 5 o'clock I can't believe the way I fought At the far end, behind the trees, It spills and brightens with positivity Owning, growing, no more paranoid morning Owning (keep it close), growing, I think I’m opening again It's getting brighter at 5 O'clock It scares and frightens me

Blasting through it Forcing through it Layers of atmosphere between us Burning fire Pushing higher Hoping to break the black vacuum of space They've taken my love to an unreachable place Shackled and gagged and a black hooded face All around me say to let go, say to forget, say to let go As far as I can go Superstitious wish on a black hole Try to ignore it Try to forget it The dark ones of the red have control My attachment is gone Everything is wrong I am far beyond console Eating my thoughts Burning my eyes Pounding my chest when fully at rest All I can think that I have to have, whatever it takes, I have to go As far as I can go Superstitious wish on a black hole

She had a hard winter The second time she faced the monster So devious and invisible A devilish cellular imposter A familiar white coated man Would begin his speech for the two of them But the king was the note collector Every last detail was verbatim He loves her Adores her Wishes he could deliver her From this pain She lost her mind for these days "A bear", she said to be around I came down and we cracked a shell A blank shock stare, eyes to the ground He loves her Adores her Wishes he could deliver her From this pain On her feet and hands Holding them he's the greatest man For her pain

about

On their second full length CD release, “Red Planet,” The Vital Might’s unique sonic palette is on full display with a winning mixture of hard-hitting melody and monster chops that doesn’t shy away from mixing pop rock with metal, funk with prog, and good old fashioned songwriting with psychedelic breaks. Although the music on “Red Planet” has been compared to such modern trailblazers as Radiohead, The Mars Volta, and A Perfect Circle, the music on “Red Planet” showcases a band that has fully come into its own as a powerful new voice that will soon be exerting its own influence on the modern progressive rock scene.
