NO OTHER WORDS Say now Murmur the cry of your faith now Let it all out and be free Stay meek Scream now Befriend the scars that complain The monsters are inside the room Break through We turn our heads away But the mirror never hides Umbrella stop this rain from drowning us But the moment that you're brave Is the moment you can die I have no other words Other than goodbye Think now Open your arms and pray Trouble may make a new sound Come down We plan the big escape But the mirror never lies Umbrella stop this rain from drowning us But the moment that you're brave Is the moment you can die I have no other words, other than goodbye We turn our heads away But the mirror never lies Our bodies in the desert Brains in the sky I'll scream another scream And I'll cry another cry I have no other words I have no other lines I have no other words No other words, other than goodbye

Into the War 04:34
INTO THE WAR Teach me not to judge you Please find the patience in me The patience in you Teach me not to hurt you Forgive the anger in me The anger in you Into the war with no armor Into the fields of no colors No one hears me now And I don’t hear you now I may say I love you, don’t hide It took too many years for these words to arrive And I may say I’ve lost you, don’t sigh It took too many fears for this heart to realize Into the war with no armor Into the fields of no colors No one hears me now And I don’t hear you now And I’ll stare into the flame I’ll be frightened but not afraid Death burns and burns my grudging faith for your love Tracing the footsteps that can’t be found Spinning the wheels that never touch the ground No one hears me now And I don’t hear you now

Parasite 03:38
PARASITE Parasite, underneath the heart that beats us alive Sacrifice, martyrdom the milk that momma can buy In your mind you don't feel used It's home, all home to you Pantomime, hand in hand we drown To merge with the tides Parasite, buried in me You say you're only inches from The grand conveyer belt In your mind it's all been sung The story wrote itself We're dead, we're dead, we're dead You say you're only inches from The grand conveyer belt But in our mind it's all been sung The story wrote itself We're dead, we're dead, we're dead

Nebula 03:21 video
NEBULA I want to cry inside a floating tear And I'll ascend into a lovely atmosphere I'll become a planet on my own Peacefully orbiting the earth Oh dear world You're weighing me down And my little mind Keeps on tearing me apart I want to hide inside the milky way And I'll relieve my worries in a nebula's birthplace I'll become a universe of light Illuminating hues of opal skies Oh dear world You're breaking me down And my little mind Keeps on tearing me apart And my little mind Keeps on telling me It's fine

LETTER TO LOVE Hey, I have no companion but love I'm sorry the lines are blurred My love is your love But I don't know how to save love When I know it's right I make it wrong Oh love But you heal me love When you feed me love Love, love Hey, I have no obstacles but love I'm sorry I lost control Of love, my love But you heal me love When you feed me love Love, love You heal me love My love Hey I don't know how to fake love Although I could be wrong I stay in love With love

about

Mythical Human Vessel is a trilogy of records written and performed by the songwriter and guitarist Paul Masvidal. They are the first independent solo releases on his label, Masvidalien Records, of which the first collection, Mythical, dropped May 31, 2019.

Best known for leading the influential progressive rock group Cynic, Masvidal recorded embryonic demos of these tightly-crafted songs over a decade ago. Drawing on influences from musicians John Lennon, Brian Eno, Chet Baker, Russill Paul and Elliott Smith to visual artists, Mark Rothko, Ai Weiwei, and Hilma af Klimt, the songs embrace concise forms and catchy melodies in spite of their often painful subject matters of loss, depression, and heartache.

At the center of Masvidal’s experiment is the use of Isochronic tones, a 'brain-entrainment' technology. Isochronics are said to produce bio-chemical reactions in the body that increase serotonin, alleviate depression and stress, improve focus, and aid in restful sleep, similar to the effects of exposure to negative ions in nature.

Through its incorporation of Isochronic tones, Mythical Human Vessel is intended as “an inherently relaxing listening experience, and adding the tones multiplied the benefits,” Masvidal says. “More serotonin for all!"

Throughout all three volumes of Mythical Human Vessel, the sound of undulating and sweeping frequencies in slow and rapid succession act as a subliminal agent to affect the listener positively and help to create a deeper connection to the songs themselves.

Mythical Human Vessel was mixed and produced by Warren Riker. The Isochronic tones were designed by Dr. Stephane Pigeon, creator of the Brian Eno-celebrated website MyNoise.

Masvidal is currently working with experimental artists Greymar to develop Mythical Human Vessel into an immersive live experience using evocative imagery, storytelling and technology as part of an experiential journey into heart-opening and multi-dimensional landscapes.
