My brother's band, Carnival of Souls have a short mix of their new song up in their space: Disguise The Limit is available for streaming or download.

DISGUISE THE LIMIT

Hey stranger! The street tonight is wild,
So get up, get a move on - just get yourself outside.
The surface layer is all we can see,
So when you inhale - exhale - feel your whole body breathe.

Look around you, it’s everywhere -
There’s a reason and a lesson in everything.
Push the boundary, smash the barrier, disguise the limit.
It’s a given, it’s self-evident -
We are culpable even for accidents.
Push the boundary, smash the barrier, disguise the limit.


How can you tell me where reality ends?
Are you so sure we’ll never meet again?
Do you mean to show me where the dream world begins -
Make me a prisoner in this humble skin?

Here is wisdom! But do we really know so much?
We are just wounded animals, frightened to be touched.
You’ll think twice about what it means to be wise
The next time you try to meet a stranger’s eyes.

Look around you, it’s everywhere -
There’s a reason and a lesson in everything.
Push the boundary, smash the barrier, disguise the limit.
It’s a given, it’s self-evident -
We are culpable even for accidents.
Push the boundary, smash the barrier, disguise the limit.


How can you tell me where reality ends?
Are you so sure we’ll never meet again?
Do mean to show me where the dream world begins -
Make me a prisoner in this humble skin?
How can you trust in frail Humanity’s hand,
When there’s so much we’ll never understand?
Take a look around you at this beautiful earth -
How can she be an accident of birth?

Take a trip, slip between the lines
On the pages of human experience;
Twist and turn in the wormhole,
Washed by delirious dreams of deliverance.
Through the dark, see the beacon,
Not its reflection in black lakes of indolence;
Lift your eyes, purge your mind -
Disguise the limit, recover your innocence …

… So the battle lies within:
Every being bears a living soul
On the journey to find its salvation -
Opened up to the light of God,
Past the Devil and all his damnation.
So let Truth be your shield;
Faith is your weapon, Despair is your enemy.
This is it - this is real -
Every decision could cost you eternity.


Here comes the choice -
Here the path divides.
You and me, we’re history.
What is this mystery called Life?

Look around you, it’s everywhere -
Love’s the one link that permeates everything.
Break the cell walls of your being - disguise the limit.
It’s a given, it’s self-evident -
There is more here than just the four elements.
Push the boundary, smash the barrier, disguise the limit.

There's a couple of other songs up that are worth a listen too, although I don't think that they are their best ones...
