You told me a secret But I couldn’t keep it Instead I let it all go I never wanted it But it came without warning So Instead I spun out of control You said you’d give yourself away To face your pain coming around again I begged you to leave me alone I’ll say it again…leave me alone. Pain it seems to be the only way You learn to live again Learn to love again Pain would never leave you alone You face it again…on your own. I feel it come my way…feel it coming around again I feel like I’m losing control Of my body and soul Soul. He who chose to let himself go Bring his pain again on his own He who chose to give himself away See his pain coming around again.

Lunatics And Liars (free) 04:23
Lunatics and liars Who have the desire To set my world on fire Watch it burning higher. Higher! Apathetic Losers They are all the choosers Of whatever fate acquired They’re fuel for the fire. Fire! Realize we’re desensitized to feel our weakness Those who stand to make a profit will use our sickness To bend the truth, Spread the Lies Propagate the wicked Those who stand to make a profit will use our weakness… They’ll use our weakness. Lunatics and liars Who have the desire To set my world on fire Watch it burning higher. Higher! Realize we’re desensitized to feel our weakness Those who stand to make a profit will use our sickness To bend the truth, Spread the Lies Propagate the wicked Those who stand to make a profit will use our weakness… Use it!

Halo (free) 03:57
The news was proud at the feeding trough They’d chased the other pigs away There’s no one in their way They can feed on it night and day Who’s to know ? Who’s to say? Who would stand in their way? Them pigs of war, on parade today Come collect a debt and we will pay Lay down your ego Is it enough? Now we’ll never know Hate around your head, like a halo You will obey because we said so So confused, so afraid What if the pigs come back today? All I've worked for, all I’ve saved, so easily taken away You were right You’re here to save Protector of a shallow grave. Pigs and swine you drove away Will rise again one day. So confused, so afraid What if the pigs come back today All I've worked for all I’ve saved so easily taken away Lay down your ego Is it enough? Now we’ll never know Hate around your head, like a halo You will obey because we said so

A Drug (free) 03:49
Give me a choice I can’t refuse A Drug I have to use Give me a trigger or a knife Gave me death, now give me life Give me a needle for my pain A rush of blood to the brain A choice I couldn’t refuse Hey! Laid so low Hey! Why won’t you just let me go? So drawn into your pain I got you running in my veins So battered and so bruised Like a needle for my pain A rush of blood to my brain A choice I couldn’t refuse Hey! Laid so low Hey! Why won’t you just let me go? Hey! Killed by your knife so slow Hey! You got me laid so low

Sinner 05:28
Hey you sinners Show me how to die Hey you liars Show me how to try Won’t you come, take may hand Lead me down to the promised land With a bottle of whiskey in my hand Ride on, right on, ride on, Right on! Face your demons, Ride on! Hey you mothers Tell your children now That there is no promised land Broken wings, Broken hands Bottle of whiskey in our hands It’s now or never… So you think you can love me and leave me to die? I bought your lies and tricks Now let me try To break my wings Break my hands Lead me down to the promised land Broken bottle in my hand…yeah. Hey you blind and weary Can you hear me clearly? Time has come Change the plan Tell yourself time and time again Now or never. Ride on, right on, ride on, Right on.

How Long (free) 04:14
Lost in the blood and mud Wonder if there’s a god above Broken down I’m thinking how long? It’s the same thing every day Despite all what they say Still stuck in my useless way How long? So wrong, for so long Oh lord how long I say Out here and fading away Broken down I’m breaking again How long? It’s the same thing every day Despite of what you say Still stuck in this stupid place How long? So long, So wrong So you think you’ve found your great escape You think you ought to be on your way But every road brought you back this way You must have got lost along the way You keep waiting It goes on and on The road out of hell is windy and long All their advice turned to be so wrong The hounds of hell are howling all night long. Hey, it’s so real right away Hey, fatal all you say Hey, real right away Hey, fatal all you say

Somebody 03:50
Somebody once told me In order to be somebody You’ve got to join the crowd In order to survive I said hey buddy I don’t think that you know me I’ve never followed And I am still alive I’ve been here before Made this mistake before All the greed and the need Made me want so much more Money, Prosperity, Happiness, Vanity The cum we swallow in order to survive. All you people, Climb the steeple Call your people Say that you’re alive Say we’re liars Cannon-fodder Lambs to the slaughter Working the nine to five We’re alive… Gunned down in the street of gaza Blinded by propaganda You died in the name of allah Fast forward to the valleys Consuming all the candy That she can buy More and more, Tell me what’s in store? All you people, Climb the steeple Call your people Say that you’re alive Say we’re liars Cannon-fodder Lambs to the slaughter Working the nine to five We’re alive…

The River 06:59
I’ve been swimming these dark shores Away from the light I swim these rivers of red Every night Get me away from here Towards the light Drown in the river of red Every night Yeah I’m drowning Stuck here Can’t break free Deep dark river Got a hold of me You said you want to die and float away Get me out of here today Let the deep dark river Come and carry me away. Yeah. Well I’ve been swimming these muddy rivers red Night after night Oh get me away from here Towards the light You said you want to die but you’re afraid But we all go there eventually Dip your head in the muddy river red And set yourself free… Yeah.

about

This album was recorded in the winter of 2009 after work and on weekends in our studio. We worked pretty hard on it and ended up taking the final tracks to Juan Urteaga at Trident Studio to mix and master, and he did an amazing job. This album is the result of about 1.5 years worth of writing, rewriting, fighting, drinking, smoking and rocking! enjoy!

about

ZED San Jose

ZED makes rock the way it should be made. Loud guitars, a shot of whiskey and a middle finger. Taking it cues from the greats like Zeppelin, Sabbath and AC/DC, but combining them with their contemporary musical influences such as Clutch, Rage Against the Machine and Queens of the Stone Age, creating a mixture that is new, yet familiar. ... more
