The Giants

<p>Hi-&nbsp;&nbsp; we posted a song entitled THE GIANTS .&nbsp;&nbsp; I wanted to comment on the remarkable nature of the lyric content.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<br /><br />During&nbsp;my research on the subject of Ancient America, &nbsp;I unexpectedly came across numerous references in ancient sources, about a race of Giants that formerly inhabited the land.&nbsp; The writings of Ixtlitlxochitl (c.1520) are typical of the ancient sources i refer to .</p>
<p>We have posted a new pic to represent the song,, the picture of an archaeological discovery of an Olmec Head. It appears that these were the giants spoken of in the ancient histories.&nbsp; The size of these men, is consistently reported to have been about 3 times the height and girth of a man today. in other words, about 18 feet tall.</p>
<p>Here's a few of the lyrics,</p>
<p>THE GIANTS</p>

Smoking Baby - Don't Wan'na Lose it.


By The DEEP, 2008-02-04
Smoking Baby - Don't Wan'na Lose it.

We would like to comment on the picture we chose to post with our newest track ,,

DON'T WAN'NA LOSE IT ::::::::::

The lyrics and the song itself , is a reflection on such things as the innocence of a child . - 'when i was a child,,, i saw the world through different eyes..''' etc.

The picture of a Toddler with cigarretes is not meant to be funny,, although with the proper respect, it has a humorous look to it. Also,, of course, The DEEP does not advocate a hobby of smoking starting at age two !!!! - in fact, I'm sad inside for young young people who i may see huffing a cig.

The picture, when i look at it , interestingly demonstrates the innocence of children,,, because when i look at that photo, i don't see A BAD BOY BABY,,, ROUGH AND READY for ciggarettes and mischief. No,, ,, even with the ciggarettes, i see an innocent precious little boy who is only copying a behaviour he has observed in us - the older ones who should know better.

In the reviews left on the song, i was pleased that no one seemed to be offended by the pic, however , i bet maybe some people were a little bit , but are mild enough to not thrash us for it.

IMS people seem pretty cool,,, well,, we'll have to get alot more obscene next time to try and SHOCK, !!!!!!!!! ,,, ehe ehehe ,, just kiddin.

Beyond the Veil


By The DEEP, 2007-12-01
Beyond the Veil

<p>Hey people,,&nbsp;&nbsp;I feel that Beyond the Veil is one of the defining tracks of The DEEP as a band.&nbsp; Lemmee give ya some history here.&nbsp; Back when Michael and I first&nbsp;hooked up.......&nbsp; <br />let me interupt myself:&nbsp; this blog entry is a bit lengthy, but it must be said.&nbsp; so please, remember to skip down below this entry for Nexus Radio blog and others. We don&#39;t intentionally want to push the previous blog down so far- <br /><br />cont-&nbsp;&nbsp; Back when Michael and I first&nbsp;hooked up to make music as a team,,,&nbsp; he sent me a track from some of his earlier work that just blew me away. It was the instrumental of this.<br /><br />In re-adapting the original track into this song version, bothe Michael and I are playing certain rythm guitar parts,,&nbsp; and in the Guitar leads,, again both of us are trading off here and there. Micheal is a real lead guitar player. I just manage to roll off pre-calculated riffs,, but i havent got the rip roarin speed that Michael does.</p><p>I get off big time on us both trading off on various guitar territories, because one of my favourite bands is Queensryche. And when i watch them play, you can&#39;t tell who is the lead guitarist and who is the rythm guitarist because both of the guitarists will be in either territory at different times,,, just depending on how the feel and how the cards fall. </p><p>The DEEP doesn&#39;t play live of course because Michael is in the USA and i&#39;m in England. but at least with tracks like this- i get some satisfaction.</p>I now present the LYRICS of this song. The song is about death in a way. It&#39;s about what lies beyond this life. I guarantee ,, there is life after death: <font size="2"><p><font size="1">BEYOND THE VEIL</font></p><p><font size="1">In your little castle of sand<br />the day slips away without a future</font></p><p><font size="1">a window is the only simple answer<br />a window to the sky <br />and through the rings of time<br /></font></p><p><font size="1">in your wildest dreams<br />you can&#39;t imagine<br />what the future holds<br />beyond the veil<br />beyond the veil<br /><br />ev&#39;ry now and then<br />i see, i feel, i hear, i sense the moment<br />and the road ahead is not to be forgotten<br />ev&#39;ry thing you wish for <br />in the world is nothing more than a dream <br />look ahead<br />you never imagined<br />what the future holds beyond the veil<br /><br />beyond the veil<br />you&#39;ll find your dreams</font></p><p><font size="1">like a wishing well<br />and through the window<br />in your wildest dreams<br />welcome to your mansion<br />and you never imagined this in your wildest dreams<br /><br />in your castle<br />made of sand<br />the world is a wilting flower in your hand</font><br /><font size="1">the voice is calling<br /></font><font size="1">the veil is falling<br /><br />IN YOUR WILDEST DREAMS<br /></font><font size="1">YOU NEVER IMAGINE<br /></font><font size="1">IN YOUR WILDEST DREAMS<br /></font><font size="1">WHAT LIES BEYOND THE VEIL<br />it&#39;s a wishing well.......... .<br /></font></p><p><font size="1">==============<br />Lyrics and vocal : Shane 2007</font></p><p>&nbsp;</p></font>
