about

Five songs that take you on a journey though hidden, fragile recesses in our psyche: hurt, resentment, disillusionment, remorse, and hope.

This collection epitomizes the Minnasia sound: aggressive guitar-driven rock, lyrical vocals and cello, and sophisticated songwriting.

We hope these songs will accompany you in your darker times.

Note: "Half Step" is available for free download. Go to Minnasia.com to access more free songs.

Track Name: PK
PK

I feel alone today
I can’t decide the way
A man knows wrong from right
A man must claim his rights
But I feel alone today

Free me now

I feel the pain today
I can’t decide my way
Oh be on your guard my boy
Don’t play with his little toy
Young means I don’t know what to say
But you’re the same

Free me now
Don’t turn me all down

Oh did he lie to me?
Was I really saved?

Free me now
Don’t turn me all down
Don’t turn me all down
Don’t turn me all down
Track Name: Arms Lost
Arms Lost

Sunless war-torn zones
Arms lost beneath her terrace
Circle, missing piece
Price was everything to your cause

Lungs, broken ties
See mine add to the long arrays
Your harmless lies
Bleed each day more, sing praise
To promised land

Tangled, headless drones
Tarnish inside your palace
Circles, missing peace
I lost everything to your cause

Heads never rise
Bite away their lead sprays
Your armless lies
Bleed each day more, sing praise
To promised land
To promised land

Mindless man, mindless man
Must we go on
Mindless man, mindless man
Must we go on
To promised land
To promised land
Track Name: Half Step
Half Step

See it whither away
This life of consuming bars of restraining iron
Will you remember our laughters in crates
The slow bloom
The scenes of joy
The glowing tide of colors

You seemed so out of reach
But I

Step on the corner flower lane
And look for you
From the palace of no burdening shame
I saw you fall through

Swim out of this pool
Of lifeless pull machines
To hear unanswered calls
Will you remember my pictures of your back
The paths we mapped
The tiny jumps
The forgotten ship in the cellar

Step on the corner flower lane
And look for you
From the palace of no burdening shame
I saw you fall through

I almost followed you down

Standing where you stood
But couldn't stand to see you disappear

Step on the corner flower lane
And look for you
From the palace of no burdening shame
I saw you fall through
Track Name: Raid
Raid

When the new order came with chariots
And fire planes of gold
With faith in the son of Iscariot
I burned the scars untold

Through the veins of concrete
I have lost my life
Throw away this comfort
Cut me up with a knife

She made the move, I justified
As others souls have done
A chain of command, so dignified
I gave my code, begone

Through the veins of concrete
I have lost my life
Throw away this comfort
Cut me up with a knife

When I'm on the other side
When I'm through this strife
I will right our raid
I will sing for your life
Track Name: Web
Web

See you sent through the air
Will you grab him for 30 seconds
Will he find you in there
Or should I have put you in the ads?

Only talk through the wire
And erase your voice from the phone
You don’t have to find a cure
‘Cause you’ve hidden the honest scene

But you still make the call
Can you see beyond these lines
Come on the roof of this big hall
I hear you scream alone in the rain

Come to the light
Of this cold and dark ice face
And forget about the taste
Of the blood behind the voice

So you cancel the fair
Want to be close but stay so far
And he won't see a drop of tear
It is there but hidden by your war

But you still make the call
Can you see beyond these lines
Come on the roof of this big hall
We'll cry to the world alone when it rains
