about

An anthem to question the ubiquitous: If you're taught something's true your entire life then it'll be very hard to leave behind - even in the face of your own logic and reason.

lyrics

Lyrics: Sam Vallen

It seems so obvious
the way we know, through life we're taught
It's virtuous to blindly follow
A wave of logic floods upon the still benighted
Strives to offer a bright new meaning
To a life worth living
Without inhibition or mistrust in reason

Far too late my life goes by
Misunderstanding truths I can't deny
And I'm out of time to understand
All at once I realise life's depleting at a rate I can't define
But with hindsight it all seems so easy
So through this revelation
My years of reflection are lost in dissension
How can I emancipate my world from something so ingrained
Embedded in the back of my mind?
I'm out of time

To question everything
And depend on one thing tangible: my mind
I've seen the light, it proves we're close to impossible
We are the miracle!

Far too late my life goes by
Misunderstanding truths I can't deny
And I'm out of time to understand
All at once I realise life's depleting at a rate I can't define
Have I wasted my time?
It seems my inspiration's a product of living
That's years in the making
How can I negate the face of reason, begging me to question
Praying for a single statement - why?
I'm out of time

Quandary saw active gigging bands with no recorded works, and decided to do the opposite, releasing an album before a single performance. A song approaching 30 minutes was in progress, but never completed - Quandary dissolved in October 2011. ... more
