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

Cause someones' satisfaction hangs within the balance
The root to evil's left to grow within my grounds
I took the higher route in lew of digging dirt and chosen silence
Guess I'm still expected to grow money trees

But that's okay
When you get paid

Take me out on another ride
Cause you can't admit it-

And when supposedly you hit the ceiling of your feelings
Why could you not have spoken to me of it clearly
Instead of breaking through the roof and tangling your family
inside a low life's non-existent money tree?

Guess I can't blame
You for your way

Take me out on another ride
Cause you can't admit that
You know that I'm right

I know it's a 92
And I don't mean a thing to you
But I've worked my bones harder than you
to get your bones back to you

So I'm at peace, but only with myself

So I'm at peace, but only with myself
So I'm at peace, but only with myself

The words you say
The games you play:

Take me out on another ride
Cause you can't admit it
You know that I'm right
