This is the Standard Edition of the second album. There is also the Unlimited Edition which is gapless like a Pink Floyd album and includes 4 additional tracks. This version offers a classic listening experience with a moment of silence between songs. Either way, the compositions themselves are dense and bear repeating to really absorb, though the intent is also to be palatable upon first listening.

THUS II was written over the course of 4/5 years and really ended up being a struggle, as I went into it striving to avoid the old sophomore slump. What emerged over time was an accumulation of short creative spurts as opposed to the first album, written in mainly a single inspired 5 month stretch. I think as a result of that, it was difficult for me to come to terms with the project as a whole in its finished form until I rerecorded, remixed, and mastered it between 2012-2014. Finally I am at peace with this as an album and it stands tall as a companion to the first album.

Lyrics

I figure all the things I attain
I'll lose again someday
Am I the only one wondering
what the point is in making good decisions?

Saving up your duckets
For the day it's raining buckets?
I ain't ever paid my way
Out of a stormful of rain

The farther we get from the goals that we set
The harder it is to hold on to your head
Don't tell me again, cause I know what I said
I'm better off dying than dead

I'm saving up my tolerance
In case I never get to join the resistance
I turn around to see you joining
I'm now a member of that which I don't see the point in

Maybe I would have done a little better
If I fell in line instead of
Zygotes, gametes, and clones (as)
My sole postulate for drones


The farther we get from the goals that we set
The harder it is to hold on to your head
Don't tell me again, cause I know what I said
I'm better off dying than dead


I've gone too far in the wrong direction
To go back and try reconnecting
I've paid dearly for all decisions
I've made and all I can say is


The farther we get from the goals that we set
The harder it is to hold on to your head
Don't tell me again, cause I know what I said
I'm better off dying than dead
