The Only Faith Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh And if you told me all the fairy tales were true, and all the saints, Valhalla, and voodoo They've got for us with a room ready in Bellevue and the only faith I ever had was you. So why were you the first to go? I’m left talking to a shadow I’m doing my best don't you know to be brave Can you feel me walking on your grave Can you feel me walking on your Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh Show me a sign that I’m not crazy too cuz the only faith I ever had was you. The only faith I ever had was you. A cross and holy water, sprinkled on somebody's daughter, we found a story wherever we looked to, All these decades past and I’m still holding fast cuz the only faith I ever had was you. So why were you the first to go? I’m left talking to a shadow I’m doing my best don't you know to be brave Can you feel me walking on your grave Can you feel me walking on your Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh Show me a sign that I’m not crazy too cuz the only faith I ever had was you. The only faith I ever had was you. You went away too soon but somehow I think that we’re still in tune And you know that we lived by our own rules, So now’s your chance to let me know that I’m not a fool. So why were you the first to go? I’m left talking to a shadow I’m doing my best don't you know to be brave Can you feel me walking on your grave Can you feel me walking on your Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh Show me a sign that I’m not crazy too cuz the only faith I ever had was you. The only faith I ever had was you. Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh The only faith I ever had was you. The only faith I ever had was you.

You dreamed of danger you dreamed of risk You dreamed of chasing devils dusk to dawn and waiting for their kiss You wished for abuse Hoped for neglect Wishing for an oppressor you could fight and a cause you could insurrect You want to roam so far from home but these imaginary devils are all better left alone You were hell-bound the long way round because the creatures of the night will be gone when you finally come down You wanted action You made it hot, But the more you get the more you need and the more that you got lost. The taste of danger the sweet of risk When you’re busy chasing devils you’re too high to know you’re sick You want to roam so far from home but these imaginary devils are all better left alone You were hell-bound the long way round because the creatures of the night will be gone when you finally come down Was something broken, where did we fail? What did you need to find out there beyond the Veil? The chasm’s wide, the abyss is black, and when you suffocate in shadow, you’re never coming back You went to roam so far from home but these imaginary devils were all better left alone You were hell-bound the long way round because the creatures of the night were all gone when you finally came down The creatures of the night were all gone when you finally came down

We were chosen for this moment We were chosen for this land We are elected to be perfected Our conscience clean as Pilate's hands. The Devil asks a penny but he’ll always take a pound He knows all your secrets, and he loves to drag you down. So watch out for drunken sailors So Watch out for dirty girls, And if you let me please, I can show you these, Wonders of the Invisible World. I know the monsters that you’ve dreamt I’ve seen the hands that torment But this is all part of all the plan divine, to test your faith ’til you’re burned alive. The Devil asks a penny but he’ll always take a pound He knows all your secrets, and he loves to drag you down. So watch out for drunken sailors, So watch out for dirty girls, And if you let me please, I can show you these, Wonders of the Invisible World. In the land of the deceiver Destroy the non-believers we act for the Man on High I’ve seen the Devil in the flesh I seen the souls that he’s enmeshed and we don’t need to justify When they fall Burn them all In his thrall Burn them all So watch out for drunken sailors So Watch out for dirty girls, And if you let me please, I can show you these, Wonders of the Invisible World. The Wonders of the Invisible World. Such Wonders of the Invisible World. The Wonders of the Invisible World.

I’d rather be a freak I’d rather be a freak Well, I’ve seen a million snowflakes who just aren’t that unique, So I’d rather be a freak. Let’s hear it for the weirdos who never wanted to fit in, we ran away and joined the circus, we ran to find our brethren. Let’s hear it for the geeks, let’s hear it for the damned, we don’t ask for your permission, we don’t care if you understand. you can laugh and have a good time it don’t matter much to us cuz we still got your dime I’d rather be a freak I’d rather be a freak Well, I’ve seen a million snowflakes who just aren’t that unique, So I’d rather be a freak. Bottoms up for bearded ladies who have no fucks to give It might seem that we’re all crazy but better than the alternative, you climb the corporate ladder or try to keep up with a Jones, I can watch you all scatter, I’ll watch you fight amongst the clones. you can laugh and have a good time it don’t matter much to us cuz we still got your dime I’d rather be a freak I’d rather be a freak Well, I’ve seen a million snowflakes who just aren’t that unique, So I’d rather be a freak. Nutcase, misfit, oddball, kook and curiosity, FREAK Aberration, malformation, and monstrosity. FREAK Outcast and pariah, persona non grata, FREAK Your fear just makes you hate, but I refuse to take the bait. FREAK FREAK FREAK FREAK I’d rather be a freak I’d rather be a freak Well, I’ve seen a million snowflakes who just aren’t that unique, So I’d rather be a freak. We'd rather be some freaks We'd rather be some freaks Well, we've seen a million snowflakes who just aren’t that unique, We'd rather be some freaks

All In 03:43
Float like a butterly, Get knocked down and you gotta get back up, put me in the game, I'm ready to play. in a place where the best and mighty roam, take the field and fight, struggle in a battle for glory. When I play, I play to win, take my chips cuz I'm all in. This is our time, this is our day, Victory is the aim, the only thing, we will proclaim When you go, go all the way. Old Vince was right, winning is the only thing. When somebody rocks you, you must comeback. In this world where there is no replay, called forth to action on this day, Get out on the field and get em back. When I play, I play to win, take my chips cuz I'm all in. This is our time, this is our day, Victory is the aim, the only thing, we will proclaim When you go, go all the way.

Don’t hold back, move forward and we give no quarter, until the moment you’re called upon, keep calm and carry on. No yield or, surrender, we must hold, the center, It’s always darkest before the dawn, keep calm and carry on. The earth will turn to hollow, the seas will rise to swallow, blackened skies and poison rains, the forests turn to flames. everything that we believe, and will transform into a deceit, and every little victory, is ashes in your mouth. But play the long game, Your strength lies in your power to take pain. Over and over again. We can withstand, exist, resist, the blackest urge. Stand by your principle, to be invincible. The stars will flicker and fade The flora turns to nightshade, the sun becomes lost in shadow and the hills crumble below And those in who we placed our faith, will throw our trust away. And all the prayers that you say, Are ashes in your mouth. Staring at your own tombstone You’ve spilled your blood you’re flesh and bone. The only thing you even know is the fact that you are damned. Looking the reaper in his face refusing his cold embrace When you plan on taking on the fates you must know where you stand. When it’s all so dour your soul devoured before you cower There’s a primal power When it’s all so dour your soul devoured before you cower You've gotta find your finest hour You've gotta find your finest hour Don’t hold back, move forward and we give no quarter, until the moment you’re called upon, keep calm and carry on. No yield or, surrender, we must hold, the center, It’s always darkest before the dawn, keep calm and carry on.

What happened to the kids who got lost in the blur, The wilderness of almost was and never were, We used to plan, We used to scheme, We used to curse the old regime, What did you surrender. for legal tender, Was your price more than your dreams? When they come to you to sell out Just promise to put up a fight, And realize you’ll never be so close as you are tonight. When they come to you to sell out Just promise to put up a fight, And realize you’ll never be so close as you are tonight. Drowning in your memory and you'll drown right in your hurt, in the wilderness of almost was and never were. We used to fight and get wound up, We thought we'd light the whole world up. What do you remember about your surrender Did you get your damn closeup? Drink to the memory This is the eulogy You became the enemy Of our forgotten army I fought for your soul In a war with no heroes We fell so long ago On a battlefield no one knows We end up just a banquet for the crows. When they come to you to sell out Just promise to put up a fight, And realize you’ll never be so close as you are tonight. When they come to you to sell out Just promise to put up a fight, And realize you’ll never be so close as you are tonight. We used to plan, We used to scheme, We used to curse the old regime, What do you remember about your surrender, Was your price more than your dreams? We used to fight and get wound up, We thought we'd light the whole world up. What did you surrender for legal tender, Did you get your damn closeup?

Shadow 04:39
How sick do you need to be? How far down you have to go? How cruel do you want to seem? Before the bottom is too low cuz when you hit you’ll hit until it hurts you’ll bleed until you’re empty you’ll struggle and you’ll curse against your fragility. all the kings horses, all the kings men cannot break your fall you’re just a shadow on the wall Can your soul be born again? until your demons let you go you’re just the shadow of who I used to know Do you remember the curtain close or the ending of the joke? Do you remember remember clutching my throat the moment your conscience broke How about the downward spiral or the years of denial do you remember every time you promised not another time? cuz when you hit you’ll hit until it hurts you’ll bleed until you’re empty you’ll struggle and you’ll curse against your fragility. all the kings horses, all the kings men cannot break your fall you’re just a shadow on the wall Can your soul be born again? until your demons let you go you’re just the shadow of who I used to know Every promise that you break And every plea that you ignore I look but I don't see you anymore The darkness that you drank Hollowed out your core I look but I don't see you anymore Hold on to the ghost Of anyone left at all I look but It’s just shadows on the wall. Strangled in blackness drowned in ethanol I look but It’s just shadows on the wall. all the kings horses, all the kings men cannot break your fall you’re just a shadow on the wall Can your soul be born again? until your demons let you go you’re just the shadow of who I used to know

Sulfur 04:34
it was the sulfur it was the brimstone it was the night it was the blackness it was the madness when you lost your sight there are moments that matter there are fixed points in time and what you do right here will be with you to the end of your life. be careful what you burn and all you’ll taste is the sulfur of how right you thought you were be careful what you burn and all you’ll taste is the sulfur of how right you thought you were it was the sulfur it was the anger it was the wrath it was the vengeance the lack of penance you strayed from the path be careful what you burn and all you’ll taste is the sulfur of how right you thought you were be careful what you burn and all you’ll taste is the sulfur of how right you thought you were be careful what you burn and all you’ll taste is the sulfur of how right you thought you were be careful what you burn and all you’ll taste is the sulfur of how right you thought you were

While we were wondering what’s under the bed, there’s been something growing we should dread, and it’s getting bigger all the time. Hairier than Bigfoot's paw, and scarier than Wolfman’s claw, there’s pitchforks out looking for a Frankenstein. So scream your lungs out, and look for a way out, From a mouth starving for something to hate. Be careful what you say, be careful not to wake, the outrage of a beast with a million heads, These American Monsters will eat you whole, take your life from your control, and won’t be satisfied until the trolls are fed. It’s a sick chilling effect watching human lives get wrecked. they’ll set your insides out for a little bait. It’s the mob and it always wins walking on needles and pins So you better watch what you say. Someone’s listening, so say the right thing, but the right thing changes every day. It’s never a problem until you’re the one they want to find, double-check your privilege or it's your profile on a pike. They’re driving me insane, The monsters inside my brain. So scream your lungs out, and look for a way out, From a mouth starving for something to hate. Be careful what you say, be careful not to wake, the outrage of a beast with a million heads, These American Monsters will eat you whole, take your life from your control, and won’t be satisfied until the trolls are fed. You better watch what you say. You better watch what you say.

Disinformation, we’re lied to every day, Our imagination used to fool our lizard brain. The point of distraction, just a little bait and switch, Find the ball under the shell, Who knows? You might get rich A mothership o’er the Empire State, A saucer on the White House lawn, Keep your eyes upon the skies, and forget you’re being conned. If seeing is believing, Then I’ll get down on my knees, my head gets cracked, 'tween fiction and fact We see what we want to see. our mind plays tricks, and our eyes transfix, on what the screen reveals. Seeing is believing, but that doesn’t make it real. Check your programming, you could use a little doubt. Keep on looking, keep on looking, further than your eyes allow. A mothership over the Empire State, and a saucer on the White House lawn, Keep your eyes upon the skies, and forget you’re being conned. If seeing is believing, Then I’ll get down on my knees, our secret desires, turn us into liars We see what we want to see. Your eyes play tricks, and your mind transfixed, to what the screen reveals. Seeing may be believing, but that doesn’t make it real. It’s the movement in the corner of your eye can’t believe that we have just been taken for a ride all these years believing there was something more to say, just pawns of the CIA, And those bastards get away. If seeing is believing, Then I’ll get down on my knees, our secret desires, turn us into liars We see what we want to see. Your eyes play tricks, and your mind transfixed, to what the screen reveals. Seeing may be believing, but that doesn’t make it real.

Push 05:01
Hot breath on my neck I shut my eyes turn all the way inward, go deep inside. and my face is wet, how I want this to be anyone but me someone else’s body to push push push away and out of here I need to push push push away and out of here From up on high I can see where I lie, Some kind of fantasy, pushed right out of body I went so far inside i think i lost my mind came out the other side that’s where I hide. that’s where I hide. watching myself now, somewhere outside my head, Free of the physical, But I'm not dead. Turn away from the scene, And set off on my own, into infinity, beyond divinity. to push push push away and out of here I need to push push push away and out of here From up on high I can see where I lie, Some kind of fantasy, pushed right out of body I went so far inside that I lost my mind I came out the other side that’s where I hide. that’s where I hide.

about

With their uncanny lyrics, massive harmonies, and six-string fireworks, Sunspot has been touring the rock underground for over two decades and performs driving electro-rock anthems that capture the fantastic and bring it back down to Earth.

After years of podcasting tour stories from their van, Sunspot branched out by creating Wisconsin’s #1 paranormal podcast, See You On The Other Side. Each of the show’s 200+ episodes feature interviews and discussions of pop culture and paranormal themes while capping each entry off with a brand new original track every week. Their latest album The Wonders of the Invisible World is a re-recorded and fully mastered collection of the most popular songs from the show. The paranormal inspiration ranges from weird Puritan superstitions (hence the Salem Witch Trials-related title track) to a rocker inspired by Ed and Lorraine Warren of The Conjuring fame (“The Only Faith”), a Churchillian ode to a brave psychic British cancer survivor (“Keep Calm and Carry On”) to a track about the escape of an out-of-body experience (“Push”).
