Enjoy The Ride Words and Music ©2017-2018 by Mario G. Di Sandro
 Everything keeps moving, time is all consuming We don’t know what is coming So just sit back, enjoy the ride... Everyone is falling, policy is stalling We don’t know what is coming So just sit back, enjoy the ride... Politics are swaying, tribal wars are flaring We don’t know what is coming So just sit back, enjoy the ride... Sirens have been blaring, i can’t stop swearing We don’t know what is coming So just sit back, enjoy the ride... I… can’t decide, If 
I... if I want to hide Or take this world Back from the other side War is going Nuclear, people getting stupider We don’t know what is coming So just sit back, enjoy the ride... Children going hungry, women going missing We don’t know what is coming So just sit back, enjoy the ride... Hurricane’s are blowing, climate has been warming We don’t know what is coming So just sit back, enjoy the ride... Egos have been growing, dissension has been sowing We don’t know what is coming So just sit back, enjoy the ride... I… can’t decide, If 
I... if I want to hide Or take this world Back from the other side 

 We don’t know what is coming So just sit back, enjoy the ride... We don’t know what is coming So just sit back, enjoy the ride... We don’t know what is coming So just sit back, enjoy the ride... We don’t know what is coming So just sit back, enjoy the ride...

We Got It All Wrong Words and music ©2017-2018 by Mario G. Di Sandro We’ve been fooled, yeah We got it all wrong Pull the shades down ‘fore, the darkness grows We missed our chance To, get it all back now How could we be So, blind and naive I’ve been pure, I’ve been stoned I know the truth, when it’s been shown I live to breath, for you the same Peace and love, bears no shame Peace and love, bears no shame Peace and love, bears no shame Peace and love, bears no shame We were hoping It all would change We’ve been holding On to hope now We had such dreams We saw our future We’re moving swiftly In the wrong direction I’ve been pure, I’ve been stoned I know the truth, when it’s been shown I live to breath, for you the same Peace and love, bears no shame Peace and love, bears no shame Peace and love, bears no shame Peace and love, bears no shame In peace and love, there’s no shame In peace and love, there’s no shame In peace and love, there’s no shame In peace and love, there’s no shame

Trumpets Words and music ©2017-2018 by Mario G. Di Sandro Hear them ring Hear them sing Hear them shouting down your words You're next On their list See them read See them believe See them scream when truth appears They read their book Don't need a second look The trumpets are blaring too loud For sanity Dignity Society Humanity See them wave See them praise See them raise a hand for the man Who won't Be there for them Hear them sleep Hear them weep Hear them slaughter their own sheep Put to the fire The sacrifice of rights The trumpets are blaring too loud For sanity Dignity Society Humanity If I said this was too much If I said this went too far Will the voices drown out the truth Or will the people rise up and resist Hear them pray Hear them say Hear them weigh out their own fate Will it be Too late for them

Close Your Book Words and music ©2017-2018 by Mario G. Di Sandro Nothing good ever comes from it Holy wars and a history full of death Trial by God, and they’ll hang you Need not apply if this cross you ain’t wearing Eye for an eye, livin’ out Hammurabi Long after the, fall of Babylon Misinterpretation becomes the law Put on your best face, or it’s guilt we saw I don’t need it I won’t read it So close your book and open your eyes 
I won’t need it I don’t read it So close your book and open your mind Don’t curse his name, unless you’re praying Forgiveness comes to only those a-paying Some hypocrite, called me a sinner Don’t need a bible, for a moral conditioner Memorizing words, don’t make you higher Truth be told, you’re more often a liar Tellin’ me, to fall in line! Well, guess what, you’re not so divine I don’t need it I won’t read it So close your book and open your eyes
 I won’t need it I don’t read it So close your book and open your mind (the truth, will set you free) Your savior would, never believe you Sure as hell, wouldn’t approve of it Don’t need your book to teach me a code While you keep, sinnin’ in overload I don’t need it I won’t read it So close your book and open your eyes 
I won’t need it I don’t read it So close your book and open your mind

Thoughts and Prayers Words and music ©2017-2018 by Mario G. Di Sandro Thoughts and prayers Fall on deaf ears Tumbling down stairs Down a hall of lies Thoughts and prayers Float thru the air Swimming downstream In a river of lies And on, and on, and on, and on they’ll die Thoughts and prayers A hollow care So meaningless now Choking on lies Thoughts and prayers Fooling no one A routine so prepared A whisper in the wind And on, and on, and on, and on they’ll die You could be The good one Who will fight For the Change Or you will be The only one Who is never Gonna change Thoughts and prayers...

Toe The Line Words and music ©2017-2018 by Mario G. Di Sandro Oh, they Got you by your tongue Stolen, Your sense of pride Obey, Or you’ll be exposed Frozen, In constant lies Not gonna do it Not gonna do it Not gonna do it Oh fine, if you say… I’ll toe the line I’m out of time On the dotted line Oh, I will sign 

Do say What’s on your mind Brazen But you’re not brave Holy On the outside Inside Lies a monster

Not gonna do it Not gonna do it Not gonna do it Oh fine, if you say… I’ll toe the line I’m out of time On the dotted line Oh, I will sign 

Money Distorts your true way Frozen Your heart is empty Power Feeds your ego
Weakness It shows right thru you
 Not gonna do it Not gonna do it Not gonna do it Oh fine, if you say…
 I’ll toe the line I’m out of time On the dotted line Oh, I will sign

Watch It All Burn Down Words and music ©2017-2018 by Mario G. Di Sandro Did we forget it? Did we let it? Or are we ready To watch it, all burn down? Are we still ready? Holding it steady? Moving in closer To watch it, all burn down And I don’t know Just what it means And I don’t know Just how it bleeds But I know It’s coming apart And I know It’s time to restart Can we protect it? Or are we losing? The ground we’re building To see it, all fall through Are we still holding? Keeping our aim up This fragile space here To see it, all come down And I don’t know Just what it means And I don’t know Just how it bleeds But I know it’s coming undone And I know we cannot outrun Did we plan it? Did we demand it? Seems that we bought it Now it’s all, gonna burn on down Can we still stop this? Can we keep fighting? Or have we left it To rot and, turn on out And I don’t know Just what it means And I don’t know Just how it bleeds But I know It’s coming apart And I know It’s time to restart Watch it all burn down... Watch it all burn down... Watch it all burn down... Watch it all burn down...

Our Darkest Hour Words and music ©2017-2018 by Mario Di Sandro Grab only what you can We don’t have time now It is of essence That we get going Soon they’ll be looking We got to keep hiding A light that’s so blinding A History repeating Where were you When America died? We’re running From our darkest hour We’ve got to keep moving The walls are imploding The tanks keep on rollin’ The country has fallen To forces within her By justice collapsing An autocrat dances To sheep that follow Where were you When America died? We’re running From our darkest hour With no destination We get to the surface The sky is afire The city’s in ruins The bombs they have landed The mobs have ascended The stores have been looted Democracy destroyed Where were you When America died? We’re running From our darkest hour Where were you When America died? Is this all Some wet dystopian dream?

Rushing Toward the End of the World
 (aka: A Smooth Exit From Inflation) Words and music ©2017-2018 by Mario G. Di Sandro So much left to see So much to live for This, emotional anarchy Spilling out the door Escaping all but me Sustains the will no more We’re rushing toward, the end of the... We’re rushing toward, the end of the... We’re rushing toward, the end of the world Elementary Our basic needs A collapsing society Evil succeeds Live in poverty Watch this nation bleed We’re rushing toward, the end of the... We’re rushing toward, the end of the... We’re rushing toward, the end of the world No longer taking our time No longer holding our breath Feeling the wind upon our hand
Watching clouds roll on by These little things go dead
We’ve stopped taking it all in

We’re rushing toward, the end of the... We’re rushing toward, the end of the... We’re rushing toward, the end of the world

Truth Could it be that all of this life? Wasn’t meant to be so satisfied And all you wish to have lived today Was just a fairy tale so far away? Disappointing people everywhere Didn’t think you’d even care Running on empty every day Yet we still get up to play How did we get so far away From the traditions left in disarray Ignoring all the rules of law And lifting ourselves above them all Can we ever get back to it? Will we ever know the all of it Can we ever come back from this? Will we ever see the truth… again? Dispelling facts and shifting blame Proffering lies is the name of the game Disseminate fear and hide the truth Oh, all this running will catch up to you Holier now than ever before Greedy halos never wanted more! Can we ever get back to it? Will we ever know the all of it Can we ever come back from this? Will we ever see the truth… again?

This Will Pass Words and music ©2017-2018 by Mario G. Di Sandro Pick up your feet We gotta get a move on Shuffle down the street Time ain't waiting on you Feel the skyscrapers Of anxiety Weigh upon my shoulders Not letting go of me 
You can fight With all your might Know this will pass Oh, this will pass This will pass A darkness surrounds me Choking all the air Won't let me be now Who I normally am Those simpler times Always strike my mind Someday I'll get there I know I will You can fight With all your might Know this will pass Oh, this will pass This will pass

Horizon Words and music ©2018 by Mario G. Di Sandro And after all we’ve seen Along the darkened path Through the narrow strait Of opposition and hate Comes a long and winding road Full of promise and of hope Dreading the morning sun Feeling like you are done Then comes a ray of light I see a horizon on its way On its way On its way Besieged from our command Taken from this promised land A terror of the human mind How did we get so unkind? So we set out for the night Sail ‘til the dawn’s early light Racing the glowing moon Leaving this earth too soon Then comes a ray of light I see a horizon on its way On its way On its way A brand new day... A brand new day A brand new day...

about

Living in the era of Trump, chaos lurks around the corner and a dystopian future awaits...

This thirteen song album is filled with a lot of anxious moments that summarize the current zeitgeist of the country during these times of uncertainty, and gives a haunting foreshadow into what may lie ahead...
