about

In the autumn of 1986, I was dreaming in song. I recorded them as best I could in a small room on a cassette for memory’s sake. I had the finances to record the first five songs at Toontown Recording Studio in Lexington KY which was produced into the PHARAOH tape called Birth Rights. The cassette was lost to me and the last five songs forgotten.

In 2012, Adam McLean located a copy of that original cassette in Boston and secretly reworked the vanished songs from scratch into modern digital glory. He is a musical genius. He called me up one day and said, “Hey man, I’ve got a surprise for you.” WAV files were emailed to Vegas. Upon receipt and first listen I wept, pulled out the old lyric sheets, hung up a microphone, sang through each of them without rehearsal, and sent the vocal tracks back to Adam. He enlisted the help of my son Malachi and his brother David who threw down some leads via email then Adam mixed it all back into the form of my original dream.

We now present to you the lost songs of The PHARAOH Project, Birth Rights side 2. This will close out that chapter of my life. Enjoy…

released November 3, 2012

Adam McLean: Everything! You are simply a musical genius.

Malachi Francis: Leads on Dream of a Witches Sabbath and an impressive amount of patients and technical recording assistance.

David McLean: Leads on Nethersong and for his guidance and brilliance back in the day as my personal manager when this was all concieved. It would not exist without Dave's kicking my ass to be productive back then.
I guess the dream lingers on into the day...

Track Name: Demon on the Mountain
Ten Commandments in the City of Lights
Rise in the morning air
Laws forgotten – reestablished in haste
Hiding SIGNs inside a stare

In communication with the endless Reich’s
Their temptations out of sight
One rises, to the others, in their eyes
Forgotten systems inside
Throw a shadow on the light

Like a shadow across the sun
Foundations crumble in the sky
Like a father to his son
No one else to answer why

- An explanation solves a mystery
- Science carved in stone
- And in the image of them, we have created

Each with their followers – Lost and Found
Still far above The Den Below
Wizards and Warlocks – Banshees and Fools
Just the upper class cast for another show

How many have risen in analogy
As some are never seen
Growing stagnation technologically
Systems deep inside redefine the one supreme

Like a shadow across the sun
Foundations crumble in the sky
Like a father to his son
No one else to answer why

And on a mountain, hidden high above the eyes
One stand behind the stone
And know ye it was written that ye should know:
Your Father is not alone!
- and neither are we…
- separate from thee…

that stayed and took the lead
all that prayed away from greed
all the faded warring seeds have
altered not a single deed
in all the fray the books of greed
calmed the masses who believed
a call belated; adoring needs;
Stalled the ending, indeed

No one dares where no one cares
So who will stand with me against the seraphim?
“I WILL…”
“…and I... and I… . . .. and I . … . .

How many things happen that can not be
So many things unseen
Belief system discontinuity
The beginning hides behind
Fourteen billion years of debris

Coronal mass ejections
Humble worlds about to fry
Haunted kingdoms of the sun
True death angels in our skies

Like a shadow across the sun
Foundations crumble in the sky
Like a father to his son
No one else to answer why

We are greater than the sum of any equation

- And in the image of them, we have created
- A summit of souls – A valley’s spell
- The DREAM lingers on into the day

Track Name: Dawning Hour
In the early morning sunlight
Thoughts racing through my head from last night
The smoke in the air from lamplights
Gives a haze to everything I see.
In blind confusion, we burnt temples down
And now we’ve no one else to blame but ourselves.
- in this hour…

For so many years through the ages
Our people lived in cages (of the mind)
We blamed the demigods for waging war
And with each battle, we suffered more.
Such an illusion,
We let our hearts wide open
We were played – just pieces in the game –
- nothing more.
- in this hour…
- we are just an hour away…..

But now we’ve opened our eyes; No more blind submission
Somehow we can see through the eyes of a blind religion
They’re tearing the walls of the temple down –
Just an illusion –
Moving together in communication
A SIGN from the stars, it will be… …and we’re free…..

They came to us from the sky
Shining from above
From a place beyond the sun –
They took away the lies
Of the Mountain Lord
They brought daylight to the night –
A promise from the Lights
We’d not be lonely anymore
They taught us not to fear the Dark –
And in seven days
A new temple rose up to the sky
Pointing to the way from which they would return –
They would return from which way to the way
Return from the way they were pointing

And now thousands of lives have come and gone
Lessons soon forgotten
Waves from the past flow through today
Doing what your fathers did –
You’re breaking the laws of the simple down
Elemental confusion –
A change in the weather – Tribulation –
Blind from afar, it will be - in this hour…

Two months before the end of the world, they say…
and I say they are wrong...
Track Name: Dream of a Witch's Sabbath
A plan to lift him up from grace
As beams of sun from place to place
Shone throughout the forest all around

All alone in a jungle breeze
A sad man fell upon his knees
And cried for one with which to share his life

So a plead was made; A request fulfilled
- - - A glassy black stare; A dare from Hell
And sent to him the one to cast him out

…and the End Times shall come to pass
A kettle full of lies
In a DREAM of a Witch’s Sabbath
All fall to quick demise who fail to recognize the GUISE

Cold stone walls the rewarding end
For the reapers of an age-old sin
The original lust has still not gone away

The Heights were plainly in their sights
But they turned away in prideful spite
To watch the Dreams of Dust be boiled away

…and the End Times shall come to pass
A kettle full of lies
In a DREAM of a Witch's Sabbath
All fall to quick demise who fail to recognize the GUISE.

“Oh, and they dare not recognize me this time…”

Close your eyes and feel your way
Gain everything and give it away

I am… I am awake… awakened am I… I am awake…

Blind to all but what they see
They spend their lives in misery
They have touched the Hear of Sin and lost their way

Track Name: Nethersong
Once in a great land far across the Nile
A celebration for the Netherworld
And in a ring of pharaohs chanting song
Electric power sounded back

And from the Circle singing for the dead
A dreaded name was released
The Pharaohs died in the sight of Him
Their cities fell to decay in a day

From the Circle, a name came forth
The Tear of Vissalage – The cries of fear
The forests died into a desert plain
Enslaved, they never had a chance – to see the light

Caught up in the new world – He took control
He built up temples to His name
In perfect shapes of power, they rose to the sky
So many fell in His wake

But soon the balance fell - the time was wrong
So many things that could not be
Called back to the Netherworld – Logically
His time is soon – His song returns
- TECHNOLOGY -

You know the nursery rhymes; you’ve done the readings
You have seen the future in tea leaves
You think sodium-chloride transferred across your scapular
Will ward off evil spirits?

I am the alter the only forgiving way
I am the laughter of every child never saved
I am an unwilling intrusion into your domain
I’m the reason you falter
I am another way

In every life there will be that moment
When the question of the end is at hand
Back into the deep and realigned
We never had a chance

Track Name: Part II
On expedition through the desert lands
In the light of the modern day sun
Diplomatic confrontation – a treaty broken
A test detected beneath the ground
- DENIED

The source of the outburst far beneath the sand
Hidden below a pyramid
Inspection begins – High-tech scrutiny
Pinpointing the force far below
- LEVELS: HIGH –

Instrumentation reading life forces
Deep in the Well of Souls
Automatic translation – a signal conversion
A readout on the screen –
- what does it mean?

Descending further through sacred corridors
On the walls are the histories of time
Mechanical eyes the first to see
Into the tomb of ten-thousand years
- WARNINGS INSCRIBED –

No control room located – no computers or men
Dust upon the lid of the tomb
The origin located – the source undetermined
An entity lies within!
- REVIVED –

Instrumentation reading life forces
Deep in the Well of Souls
Automatic translation – a signal conversion
A readout on the screen –
- See the face of a King –

“Who will stand with me against the Seraphim?”
“I WILL…”

Automatic translation, a signal conversion
Something never seen before
