about

The Neologist San Diego, California

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: From The Ancients
Far upon a lost land of time
The scriptures were found
A revelation rewriting history
The change has been upon our eyes

Our limitation
To live beyond our fragile bones
Is adaptation
If we look back far enough to evolve


Chorus
Beneath the very sand we place our stride
Hath lain the truths of humanity
The sun is setting
Upon an eternal horizon


The awakening is near
So close I can feel it now
Reinvigorating our lost
Sense of self and life beyond

Let freedom ring behind the rising sun
From the ancients we can draw
Lost codes of our tomorrow


Chorus
Beneath the very sand we place our stride
Hath lain the truths of humanity
The sun is setting
Upon an eternal horizon
As the past catches up to us
And this downward spiral
Descends back to us


Let freedom ring behind the rising sun
From the ancients we can draw
Lost codes of our tomorrow
Track Name: The Future Screen
Chorus
Monuments of fallen men
Desolation open up our eyes
For our own diabolical empire
We forever die
The sun sets down one final time
Only to arise


To a barren earth
To our death
To endless dirt
To a future left to the ones who deserve it
Now the past the pain
The few who remain
All at the cost to remember
Ignore whatever we know
Whatever we see
Whatever we trust
What we believe is not reality
Ceasing are the hands Of time
Father wisdom shed some light on us
On us


Chorus


Empires of ash
Come toppling down
Material reduced to flesh again
We’re on an equal plane
Through our own faults
Our own paths our own wish
Oh how the finite come to realize its name
Sick humor we suffer
Life theater
The Puppet Masters hands are tied we're on our own
Step inside the future screen
Welcome all to your demise it's here


Peer into the future screen
We've been living the lie
Watching the world careen
Watching the world scream


Step inside the future screen
Welcome all to your demise


Will a new age be upon this old world
Now the times of tribulation growing ever near
Now the past the pain
The few who remain
All bear the cost to remember
Ignore whatever we know
Whatever we see
Whatever we trust
What we believe is not reality
Ceasing are the hands of time
Father wisdom shed some light on us
Track Name: The Holographic
Welcome to a world
Where we see do not believe
White souls, black hearts
It has always been from the start
To gaze the depths
I say to you

You am I and I are one with you
This forsaken world
Old pasts are new
Only seen by the mystics
It’s been here all along
For all to ravish now


You am I and I are one with you
A thousand lives it takes to see
Things true
A single moment
And I say to you
A thousand lives
With no future to know


Chorus
One lie
One fate
We were never designed
To just fade into dust
Eternal days
We've lived under imagined suns
The holographic deception
For all to ravish now

Unaware of what we know
God is at our fingertips now

All through the ages
We’ve had our times
Repeat the cycle
Break the chain

Stepping stone
From myth to legend
With a grain of salt
I soak all the knowledge of man


Chorus


My crooked path
Leading to where I never thought
I've opened the doors
That have been locked by untamed minds

I used to live
In a blinded world
Ignorance is bliss
But hindsight is torture

You am I and I are one with you
This forsaken world
For all to ravish now


Chorus
Track Name: Dark Horizons
Stand before eternity
Gaze at the endless skies
So small we stand
Stand so small in time

Our aimless flight
Our guided paths will cross
With the gravity and boundless motion
Grasping for your light

Scattered oblivion
Seems so far to fall
Strangers in the dark
Dark horizons stall

Wait for the signs
Carried with the light
Of our past, illuminate
Years after the waves depart

I feel the stars tonight

Chorus
Standing up in the arms of the night
Holding on to the rain
Stay below the waters gaze
I feel the stars tonight


Eternal flame at our core
But soon ashes hold our name
As our essence passes to the void
Is there time out there
Is remembrance spared
All the pasts of every life
Evanesce beyond our reach

I feel the stars tonight


Chorus
Standing up in the arms of the night
Holding on to the rain
Stay below the waters gaze
I feel the stars tonight
But the void feels alone
Fading away
But the darkness so cold
I feel the stars tonight


At the edge of reality
A dark horizon all can see
An endless black
An eternal line
Cross the veil
Become one with time

Chorus
Track Name: Forces of Inertia
Your very reflection
Unknown, unseen, unheard
Cast onto me
Will cause a deflection

A disturbance in space
An impedence in Rome
Flows the life of us all
None to be left alone

Do I follow your laws
Can I bend the mold

Chorus
Evil, damnation falls
And prevails the dreams of men
As the daylight passes to me
Uninterrupted purity

Damnation reigns
Shattering the dreams of men
As the darkness passes to me
Uninterrupted sanity


Collide and Divide
The will of the willed
Becomes a deed of the dead
Full circle affecting it all

Countless tears have been shed
According, responding to what’s natural
Influencing your own
Someone must fall

Do I follow your laws
Can I bend the mold


Chorus


Forces of Inertia
Pulling all around me
Forces of Inertia
Dictating the free will
Track Name: The Last To Bleed
The last of a dozen
The last to bleed
The last of a dozen
The last to bleed
Among my brethren
We face the odds
So small the razor jaw
That finds every flaw


Trapped into this nightmare
My free will is what you will
Fortune fading around me
Clawing at the darkness
Feel nothing to save myself
Your will upon our kind


Chorus
I don't believe that these walls will set us free
The last to bleed
Into the war we come undone
To fuel the fire or duck and run


The last of a dozen
The last to bleed
The strong survive
To be the last alive
The last of a dozen
The last to bleed
Prepared to fight
Prepared to die
It is my time


Trapped into this nightmare
My free will is what you will
Fortune fading around me
Clawing at the darkness
Feel nothing to save myself
Your will upon our kind


Chorus
Track Name: Cordial Incantations of Trivial Bliss
Blackened shrouds of time
The simple mind breeds the fallacy
Encrusted with insatiable lies

Our future is presents past
Deceitful calibrations of disguise
Perceived through distant lenses
Palpitating wretched existence

A sound thought becomes a silent voice
Letting go of what we know
Become a statue in the land of lies
Bend a knee to the kings of our demise


Chorus
Compromise the future seed
Sprout the roots of life down deep
Black widow veil
Our backs are your foundation


Timeless is the forgotten hourglass
Frantic churns in the endless sands
Coexistence is a systematic demise


The mutilation of a desecration
A failed fortitude reveals the blackened truth
Mimicry of the third degree
Perch the raven clad in dusk

The consciousness cascaded before us
Topple down like dominoes
Force fed belief of their whispers
Fill in the gaps where words don't fit


Chorus


Forever flowing rivers of nil
Monumental truths enveloped in minuscule lies
Seekers of the foreign trove
Discretion hides behind a falling sun
Track Name: Exiled to Nowhere
We are the fire
Watch us burn at the hearts of men
Passivist in the hopeless mind
Burning rage felt deep within

Driven to the final line
Walls come crumbling down
Collapse of our nation
Where no pheonix can rise

From the ashes
Broken dreams and broken homes
The deeds of our forefathers
Consquences for our sons

No liberation
Our friends we call our foes
New desolation
New fear we've welcomed into
Our home


We are the fire
Turning beauty into dust
Spread the ashes of our name
Lost amongst the sea of life


Chorus
But we're the passengers of time
We're exiled to nowhere
We're lost
There's no future to come undone
And no past to relive again


We are desire
Frailty of our minds
Only wanting to live
Only wanting to live without strife
Strength of the soul put to the test


Exiled to leave
The body and the confines of the mind
To leave
A world that no longer sees the daylight
Pass beyond reality of time
Of life
Exiled from the prison we adore

Chorus
