about

The Neologist Washington, D.C.

The Neologist is a musical endeavor created by James Lewis and Devin Walsh in 2009. Our mission is simple: to create and play the music we are fans of and what we want to hear for ourselves. As a two-man band we are able to make decisions in 2.3 seconds, have full creative control, and basically do what we want. We do everything ourselves from the music, lyrics, artwork, videos, recording, etc ... more

Track Name: The Fall of an Empire
A reflection in history
Is a glimpse of the future
What more can we expect
But to follow in their footsteps

Record this moment
Coming back around again
Our fate in parallel
With those of the ancients

Constantly evolving
Is the mirror of our time
To repeat the past
In the time of the present

The fallen empire is dead
Like a statue fallen down
Fires were burned beneath our heads
Another nation burned to the ground

The past follows us now
As we are the followers of our past

A top your steeple
Mimic the mistakes as trend
Tread these waters lightly
They are for all to share

Each new wrath
Stronger than the last
More moral than them all
Taking the forsaken path
That wraps us back to start again

The fallen empire is dead
Like a statue fallen down
Fires were burned beneath our heads
Another nation burned to the ground
Fallen
Like a statue crumbling down
Empires
Another nation burned to the ground

The fallen empire is dead
Like a statue fallen down
Fires were burned beneath our heads
Another nation burned to the ground
Track Name: Innate Supremacy
How does it feel
To destroy in your own name
By the blood of the innocent
And the ignorance of the weak
How does it feel
How does it feel
How does it feel to bleed

Born within
Passed through the grave
The brighter future fades
All is gone in a world betrayed
All is gone
All is betrayed

How does it feel
To be heir to our own race
Chosen by free-will
Ever changing royal place
When will this fade
When will this fade

Gone
The scorned and scarred
Beyond enemy lines
Fight
Defend this life
Remembrance is here and gone

How does it feel
To be part of history’s past
Lead the blind into the entrance of Styx
Treading fires on their own homeland
How does it feel
How does it feel
Tell me how to feel
Track Name: Subterranean Creatures
Placed into this life
From an evolutionary god
The luck of the draw
I have drawn the loaded gun

My presence of deficits
Is all that’s seen by you
See me please, for what I am
Allow me just this once
To live my life

(All subterranean creatures)
(Deserve to see the light)

Scorned and scarred
I embody them both
This heart beats too
Don’t forget
I am alive
I am alive too

What we feel and what we know
Is locked behind our silent eyes alone
Through darkness you will find
That no light is our own
The breathe of life is veiled
Through black of our days
No witness in this dark domain
But we are alive

Hopefully one day
I’ll see your thoughts
Feel your sensations
Hopefully one day
I'll see the light

Simple pleasures of life
Are kept from no one
Not even the forgotten
Neglected and rotten

Do not let me wither away
Use your sense of the heart
We don't point blame
Just ask for your touch
We are human too

What we feel and what we know
Is locked behind our silent eyes alone
Through darkness you will find
That no light is our own
The breathe of life is veiled
Through black of our days
No witness in this dark domain
But we are alive
Track Name: Apollo's Creed
Following a scientific tale
Books created of fallacy
Illogical blinding paths taught
From generation
To degeneration

Decreasing the half life of
Human existence
I cannot comprehend your fantasy world
Tucked under your crooked wing
No

I call Apollo's creed
To the heavens of myth and
Beyond reality
I call Apollo's creed
Your life of ignorance
Is all that you breed

At no fault of your own
Born into the mix of angels and
Demons fail to see
Reality
Reality

The evidence is so clear
The writing is on the wall
Destruction of our human advancement
you're a hinderance
To our progress

Carbon dating the ghosts
Of eternal realities
Records are in the skies
Belief in your mystical bantor
How does your kind survive

I call Apollo's creed
To the heavens of myth and
Beyond reality
I call Apollo's creed
Your life of ignorance
Is all that you breed

Your geometric earth revolves
Around a single point
A one way mirror
Only smoke reflected
The conspiracy is your apathy
Refuting all the facts and
Holding onto withered words

I call Apollo's creed
To the heavens of myth and
Beyond reality
I call Apollo's creed
Your life of ignorance
Is all that you breed
Track Name: In the Name of...
History offers to teach
Time and time again
You unscramble to preach
I’d rather trust in humanity
Three books, one meaning
Countless interpretations
The messages careening
At the price of innocent lives
Impervious to culture
Subjected to the thought of man
Only few can survive
But in the end we may eat our words
My anti-sentiment
In the end may prevail
I can only dictate myself
Wishing protection from the eye

Play the men like fiddles
We weep at your distress
Destroy the lives
Break the hands of a mothers caress

I play creator
You bend the rules
Ruin lives
For immortality in a mortal world

In the name of…
Contradicting lies
Guilty as charged
For a millions demise

In the name of…
Unspeakable truths
Countless lead blind
To an empty salvation

Black is your white but was once your red
Changing with the tides of time
A quick reflection
Makes an easy detection
I have seen your self-righteous past
So clear

I pity those who blindly pull
The reigns of your chariot
In the end, does it even matter?

From a safe distance I watch
Gazing into thoughtless eyes
Their ignorance is bliss
With a side-effect it dies

In the name of…
Contradicting lies
Guilty as charged
For a millions demise

Black is your white but was once your red
Changing with the tides of time
A quick reflection
Makes an easy detection
I have seen your self-righteous past
So clear

Multiple worlds are lost
Destroyed by the hand of good
The hand of good saves all
All in the name of what?

Civilized advancement
Held prisoner by invisible
The true power is all around
Look no further for the crown

In the name of…
Contradicting lies
Guilty as charged
For a millions demise

Black is your white but was once your red
Changing with the tides of time
A quick reflection
Makes an easy detection
I have seen your self-righteous past
So clear

See so clear
Track Name: Between the Fallen
Where have I gone wrong
Why am I lost
Unknown to these parts of life

I scramble a top this mess
Look down upon the tattered and torn
Know somehow I’ve pulled myself
I’ve pulled myself

Somewhere
Between the fallen
I found myself amongst the dead
Pull my life together
To face the light instead
Between the fallen

For every one of us
Came a thousand before
Join the natural progression
Come a thousand more
I am just here within my being
Within the cycle of life
The chosen strife
I just am

This is the luck of the draw
Not always reaping what we sow
I have pulled the shortest straw
Head down, trudge to the future

Somewhere
Between the fallen
I found myself amongst the dead
Pull my life together
To face the light instead
Between the fallen

To face the light instead

Our connected fates
Is nothing but chance
A fused existence
No one will guard the pearly gates
Left alone
With support of solitude
All living things will die alone

No way to know
No one to thank
Acceptance is my turn
A part of the cycle
The missing chain
This is life's game

Somewhere
Between the fallen
I found myself amongst the dead
Pull my life together
To face the light instead
Between the fallen
Track Name: A Call to Harms
On the other side it’s clear
As life and dark as death
I see a blind mistreated soul
We look into a see through mirror

Engulfed by evil
Entranced by hate
Engulfed by evil
And left to this fate

This is you and you are I
This is a Call to Harms
We race around this circle
And chase the never down

Bad seeds within our own
You’ve crossed the crooked
To sway odds
Dilute the bloodline
To create a new end
Face the day

This is you and you are I
This is a Call to Harms
We race around this circle
And chase the never down
Unattain these goals
At the price of life
For a greater good
By a lesser strife
The scales will wave
And rest on none
This is a call to harms
Track Name: My Angel is a Demon
Ripping and tearing
Pushing and pulling
Gripping at these immortal chains
Hating and waiting
Crying and dying
Rip away these fantasies

I cannot die anymore
I’ve already been killed
Nothing left to be filled
My savior of thorns
To you I pray
I am your receiver of punishment
Oh won't you show me that you care

I've heard these words
All before
Always thought
That there'd be more
I have faced my hell
And seen the flames
Surrounding my angel
I've heard these words
All before
And feel this pain
Evermore
Look into your eyes
And now I see
My Angel is a Demon

Famine to starving
Blaming to caring
On the path to genocide
Accusing to horrify
All this in you confide
Instigate with the spark of a flame

I cannot die anymore
I’ve already been killed
Nothing left to be filled
My savior of thorns
To you I pray
I am your receiver of punishment
Oh won't you show me that you care

I've heard these words
All before
Always thought
That there'd be more
I have faced my hell
And seen the flames
Surrounding my angel
I've heard these words
All before
And feel this pain
Evermore
Look into your eyes
And now I see
My Angel is a Demon

Back before all the lies
And masks were worn to disguise
Even then you were a thorn in my side
Gouging these ruined eyes
In endless sacrifice
My protector is my destroyer

I cannot die anymore
I’ve already been killed
Nothing left to be filled
My savior of thorns
To you I pray
I am your receiver of punishment
Oh won't you show me that you care

I've heard these words
All before
Always thought
That there'd be more
I have faced my hell
And seen the flames
Surrounding my angel
I've heard these words
All before
And feel this pain
Evermore
Look into your eyes
And now I see
My Angel is a Demon
Track Name: Lost Souls of a Forgotten Science
From ancient times now followed
Through the ticks back to today
A social stigmata shows
It is a necessary evil

For the future of advancement
You learn through our deeds
Sick minds invent this torture
Poor men endure the pain

What ever happened to
Who ever cared for
The lost souls of a forgotten science

The unfortunate suffer
For all humanity
A work of art
To taste the tasteless
Lost souls of time

For generations the aftershocks of
inhumane and unfathomable incantations of
thought have been felt
The wounded man dying on the table is
just as significantly insignificant as the
cycloptic child bearing the scars of the
numb scholar
It is through the perversions of vision
and unethical granting of rights that our
future can be formed

What ever happened to
Who ever cared for
The lost souls of a forgotten science

Born into mistrust now
Surviving on your lust
Thought experiments
Carried out on a corpse

What ever happened to
Who ever cared for
The lost souls of a forgotten science
Track Name: Bits In My Ear (Bonus Track)
Chief Joey Flores
Executive officer gives his parents hell
Such a “Tool” he is
Turning all the millions in to millions more
Overseerer of the great Taco Bell

Do you know what you call
A Yotam Rosenbaum
An Israeli trumpet
4.0 GPA
He’s an oxymoron
A big shot drummer boy
He’s a Hummus Master
Recorder of music
But then there’s Benjamin
The two first named Bryant
The gummy addicted
Nerd of the internet
On a good or bad day
Tom Petty is his choice
But he does what he wants
Since he made GPM

Plug your world into mine

I want your bits inside my ear
Your sweet tunes that I must hear
Don’t give me the hits from the radio
That mainstream shit that we all know

North Carolina’s very own
Sum Patten is a real Dos Equis man
Known for his clarinet shredding skills
Buy him a guiness or jameson
He will surely become your
Biggest fan

But Feldman is the worst
Leader known as a Scott
Getting irrelevant
Degrees from far up north
This fancy pants has been
On FX TV yeah!
We must impress him most
For heavy metal worth
Does she really matter
Vanessa Silberman
To LA she has trekked
Failed swift with small success
But with the right people
You cannot depress her
She knows kung fu, haiyah!
Chop and punch and kick and chop

Plug your world into mine

Another foreigner Jiho Choi
Breathing so deep the Jersey air
Searching his soul for a week to find
His electric knowledge is his to share

Sorry Adam we don’t have
Time for you!
