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

Frustrated and wholly out of self control
Taking a day off
of all this I've been putting on
I just need time
To get a good space
Every day's the same
Gonna change the pace

Cause I have to say that line again
No ink left, just grinding the pen
Another day another dime instead
No reason for me to pretend

If there's anything you want to tell me
Say it now or wait for the day that
Somebody wants to soak up your rules
Bury themselves in your box of tools

Cause I have to say that line again
No ink left, just grinding the pen
Another day another dime instead
No reason for me to pretend

I can feel my animal cry
Cause I'm not being treated
Like a human being
You say I'm flammable and
I won't last
Well here's how I catch on fire

I am through with being screwed
It ain't just me cause you should be too
All the food that you have chewed
Someone threw it out and gave it right back to you

Cause I have to say that line again
No ink left, just grinding the pen
Another day another dime instead
No reason for me to pretend

I have to say that line again
I have to say that line again
I have to say that line again
I have to say that line again
