PK 05:31
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

Arms Lost 05:07
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

Half Step 06:09
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

Raid 05:51
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

Web 03:56
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

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.
