about

The Synth Lord Seffner, Florida

The newest project from the mind of music producer/musician/composer/super-model Juan "Punchy" Gonzalez (Diet of Worms, Lover of Sin, Cosmic Punch) takes you on a journey of sound that reminds you of the past and why music was just better back in the age when synths ruled the airwaves.

Imagine a person from 1982 is frozen in ice and wakes up today without knowing the sound fonts have changed.

Track Name: Sacrifice
V1
In exchange for seething love
Deep inside your cranium
I want to change all the things that make you you

CHORUS
All the bad dreams and the sordid lies
I cannot be what you sacrifice

V2
Feeling strange to be alone
Carrying the burden
Even if you don’t ever want me to

Coda
And it’s you that doesn’t see the truth
And it’s you that cannot see the truth
And it’s you that will not see the truth
Track Name: I am Not the One You Want
V1
So you have come again
And you are in love again
I wait and see…miraculously
And find the tree of divinity

CHORUS
Always searching in the past
It’s not your first and not your last
I am not the one you want
Carry on and try again
Insanity will be the end
I am not the one you want

V2
Remember when we said, “goodbye?”
And you said, “I didn’t try”
It seems so true, that we are through
What did I do to be hated by you?
Track Name: Scared
V1
Are you afraid?
Is it too late for you?
The timing’s right – See you tonight
Name the venue
So get a head start – There are no miracles
I know that it’s hard – There are no miracles

CHORUS
You’re running - You’re scared
And you don’t know what to do
You’re running - You’re scared
And they’re coming after you
RUN!

V2
The warning’s gone
And now you flee for life
The speech is done
The fires burn inside

CODA
I know that it’s hard
There are no miracles
Track Name: Fame and Fortune
V1
Everybody wants a real chance to prove themselves
Everybody knows a tribal dance and not so well
Think about it – Think about it
It’s for a chosen few
Photo finish – If you win this
Do what you have to do

CHORUS
In the days of fame and fortune
In the craze of fame and fortune
In the haze of fame and fortune
In the daze of fame and fortune

V2
Sell your soul and maybe it will work – believe yourself
All the hype and all the simple facts reveal themselves
Think about it – think about it
Is it really for you?
In the lime light – it’s not right
The failure avenue
Track Name: Tonight
V1
Darkness falls upon the world we know
Slowly, it creates the night
My worries are gone, and it feels just right
Where were we when we were not alone?
Questioning the thoughts, I fight
Inevitability that feels just right.

CHORUS
I cannot say goodbye to you tonight

V2
Feelings that had been forbidden, gone
Quickly creeping out of sight
My pain has subsided and it feels just right

CODA
Darkness falls upon the world we know
Where were we when we were not alone?
Track Name: Consecrated
V1
See the beauty falling from your face
All that shines bright seems to come from outer space
Looking in from the places we don’t say
No one cares about you if you are in second place

CHORUS
The feeling’s complicated.
It’s like anyone I know
Don’t be so consecrated
It’s like we never were in love

V2
Even starshine tends to fade away
It’s the journey we must all undertake
Onward striving in a blasphemed haze
Speaking with divinity before the blaze

CODA
It’s just a feeling I’m endearing of superlatives
It’s the extreme of dreams and worrisome old narratives

V3
So, the limelight ends for all you know
Was it truly what you thought? How did it go?
Everyone was beating at your fake external glow
Curtain call has ended, and you failed to ever steal the show
Track Name: We Are Not Alone
V1
Mountain ranges separating knowledge that is ours to find
Secrets that are hidden from us reprogramming all our minds
Hysteria is your religion. Some succumb and most do fall
So, you made the big decision. In the dark is where we are


CHORUS
Coming to grips on the edge of insanity
Changing the rules with respect to reality
We are not alone…..


V2
Lords and kings do not define us, though you’ve given it a try
Planting all your mindless banter; wanting it, we pay the price
Deception beckons for compliance. Cynics help to push it through
Will is a direct defiance for those who only seek the truth
Track Name: Telephone
V1
The funny thing – The disconnect
The need to be public with no regrets
We all see your ups and downs
The comments flow from the champs and clowns


CHORUS
You survive alone
Waiting by your telephone

V2
The miracle of info flow
You cannot regulate the people you know
The people treat your feelings like gold
Never on the street would you be this bold
Track Name: Paradise
V1
I don’t want your love
I don’t want your raging
I don’t need your pain


CHORUS
The thought of paradise is further from my view
The world of paradise cannot be tied to you


Coda
Believe no one
Track Name: The End of Times
V1
Fighting nations, but the masses will not pay attention to detail
Promises broken, and the wars they never end. The system fails.


CHORUS
Circles made in times of war and peace
They are we are deceived
So, we cannot make a better place
These are the end of times

V2
Understanding compassion is not there. It’s better to hate them
Simple minded are the ones that cannot see a peaceful descent

V3
Such destruction. So much life has come and gone
And still we hate them

Vamp
And so, we hate them
And so, we fight them
And so, we kill them
And never know them
