-SPECIAL, never before heard bonus track if you buy the complete album!-

An incredible adventure through a world full of happiness and sorrow, every song is a story, every voice a unique perspective.
This album is about discovering yourself through music, exploring the heights and depths of human existence from space travel to corrupt governments while trying to understand what holds it all together.

While some of the songs take on a light hearted approach to their subject, as a whole, the album tries to plant something in your mind, hopefully something that will help change us all for the better.
