The Tragedy of the Commons

dominicwilliams86 The beginning of this track isn't to my personal taste but then it goes into a drum-driven piece that is absolutely sublime. It reminded me somewhat of Lynyrd Skynyrd's tracks. It's a piece that's worthy of a hard rock party if ever I heard one!

jendan Full of intense passion and sonics, The Long Dark Road melds hardcore vocals and tempo changes with a charged punk attitude, black metal guitar heaviness, post-rock drive and expansiveness, and prog-rock flourishes, all of which are showcased during various passages of this epic number.

One man, given time
will deplete, what is common.
A space, finite in size
is infinitely divisible
and subsidized by the belief
that technology can solve all problems
that time can heal all wounds
and solve inaction.
Cornucopian dreams of goods
will bring Cassandrian nightmares.
Create another Loess Pateau
in the face of what we all know
the burden of personal gain,
the pleasures we're all seeking
will take the plenty from others mouths
in spit of what we're facing
Open access for all?
Don't you play on my sympathies.
Our tragedy brings ruin to us all,
that I will never know
and I will never know...
