about

Inspired, emotional, industrial, atmospheric, experimental… Sea Of Zyn have been classified as many things. At heart they are a rock band, pure and simple.

Drawing inspiration from their beloved ghost city of Detroit, it’s no wonder that many have heard in their music the winds of the desert. Pounding riffs
and powerful vocals lead to trip-hop beats and exalted strings. They nod to nearly everything birthed in this great music city.

Think of Black Sabbath starring in a spaghetti western set in Mowtown, and you just might start to picture what these guys are doing in their little corner of the Motor City.

... additional inspiration from Thomas Jefferson
"Shake off all the fears of servile prejudices, under which weak minds are servilely crouched. Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call on her tribunal for every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a god; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blindfolded fear."

Track Name: fearless
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You wish, you wish, you wish
To be so fearless, so fearless, so fearless tonight

It seems as soon as you wake up
You cover your eyes
The world has been painted with colors
You’ve learned to despise

You hear all the ranting and ravings
That propagate fear
You fear that you’ve lost all control of
The things you hold dear

You, you don’t want to be afraid no more
You, you don’t want to be afraid no more

You wish, you wish, you wish
To be so fearless, so fearless, so fearless tonight

What’s good and what’s bad
And what’s right and what’s wrong
And you don’t know
But you won’t be afraid

Subjective opinions about how you live
All revolve (evolve) around in born sin
You strive to release yourself from all the fear because you won’t be afraid
You strive to release yourself from all the fear because you won’t be afraid

You, you don’t want to be afraid no more
You, you don’t want to be afraid no more

Track Name: atrophy

Mr. Vertigo, did your mountains get to high?
Mr. Vertigo, did your mountains get to high?

I’ve seen you walk an million miles in a million shoes and your soul’s thin.
I think you never knew exactly what to give.
I wish you knew about your gifts and what you gave to me.
I wish you knew you taught me inspiration sets you free.

Mr. Vertigo, did your mountains get to high?
Mr. Vertigo, did your mountains get to high?

To see you so unwilling yet so hungry for the change,
To know you are so capable yet things will stay the same.
I don’t want to think with pity but I think you’ve lost your way.
To see you waste potential just because you were afraid.

Mr. Vertigo, did your mountains get to high?
Mr. Vertigo, did your mountains get to high?

I see a little bit of you in me.
I see a little bit of you in me.
I see a little bit of you, see a little bit of you inside of me.
I see a little bit of you, see a little bit of you inside of me.

Track Name: panacea
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Come in and see
The power in me.
You'll see that I am the one

Step inside.
You beg for me to cloud your mind
You better hope that I am the one

Got the Midas touch for making fool's gold
Saving all the young, comforting the old
Credulity is mine to pacify
The weak of mind are blind and they don't question why

Come on babes I've got a Judas Cradle for you
Panacea, wanna taste me, don't you?
Come on babes I've got a Judas Cradle for you

Let me come inside you.
I'll make you realize the
Water you sipped has now turned to wine

As the sheep return to fold.
As you've done that’s been told
You've given me the only thing you've owned.

As a blind man walks, I'll be the only one to lead you
Everything you crave is a charade and I'll bathe you
In the end you start to question why
Cause you bought the ticket now you ride the ride

Everything I touch leaves you wanting more
Take a little taste and willingly become my whore
I’ll lead you further further further into the fold
Suckle when you’re young when you’re young and I’ll fuck you when you’re old.

Come on babes I've got a Judas Cradle for you
Panacea, wanna taste me, don't you?
Come on babes I've got a Judas Cradle for you

Track Name: poppies
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Belief has brought you to your knees
And taken individuality
Will you listen to the narcissistic thieves?
Does it leave you feeling fruitless and naïve?
Are you willing to receive?
All you cannot see

You choose to disagree. It’s to a harlot not a virgin you pray

They want you to believe you are truly free
They want you to believe are you truly free?

Intolerance throughout the creeds
You listen to distasteful fallacies
You’re only left to beg for your mercy
Your only hope is in the trinity
What will your mind have left for you to seize
If you cannot see the forest for the trees

You choose to disagree. It’s with a harlot not a virgin you lay

They want you to believe. You are truly free
They want you to believe. Are you truly free?

If you give away your heartfelt melodies
I ask you what is actually achieved.
The promise of reward and glory?
This leaves you feeling dirty and empty
You feel like only you foresee
The sheep are postured as your enemies

You choose to disagree. It’s in a harlot I believe she knows the way

They want you to believe. You are truly free
They want you to believe. Are you truly free?
When they ask you to believe, are they truly free?
If you do believe, are you truly free?
If I don’t believe, am I truly free?

Track Name: deliverance
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Some of life’s misgivings, they have not been pretty.
But courage is the place where you have found your heart.
Sometimes honesty can bring the blind to see,
Courage is the place where you have found your heart.

As I try to align, I’ll always keep in mind
That courage is the place where you have found your heart.
All your attributes I will not confuse.
Love will be the place where we will find our hearts.

You could be the one, and you could be the one.
You could be the one, and you could be the one.
To save me, to save me.

I’ve been told about salvation baby. They said it’s what I need.
They said I need some redemption baby, but I can’t bend my knees.
I think I need an angel baby to come and light my way.
You could be the one now baby to save me from my ways.

And that’s why I say...
I know that you’re the one. I know that you’re the one.
I know that you’re the one. I know that you’re the one.
To save me. to save me.
Can you save me? Can you save me?

What does saved mean?

Track Name: idolatry
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This idolatry is reinventing belief
In what's wise and pure and what should be the truth.
So you walk the path of the weakest of men
All because you believe in puppeteers dreams

This illusionist with slight of hand
Will misdirect for mass ignorance
Then you fade away due to all the mistakes
That are made and the goal of admiration is weak.

So fuck this, the machinery
The process of cultivating greed
And the raping of creativity
You bleed it dry, you’re bleeding it dry, you bled it till it withered and died
You bleed it dry, you’re bleeding it dry, you bled it till it withered and died

This catharsis is all that I need
You can take it and all that it means
If the gift gives then give it around
Just understand what I give to you, will always give to me as well
Just understand what I give to you, will always give to me as well

You bleed it dry, you’re bleeding it dry, you bled it till it withered and died
You bleed it dry, you’re bleeding it dry, you bled it till it withered and died

So fuck this, the machinery
The process of cultivating greed
And the raping of creativity
You bleed it dry, you’re bleeding it dry, you bled it till it withered and died
You bleed it dry, you’re bleeding it dry, you bled it till it withered and died

This catharsis is all that I need
You can take it and all that it means
If the gift gives then give it around
Just understand what I give to you, will always give to me as well
Just understand what I give to you, will always give to me as well

Track Name: light
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If it’s water you seek don’t play in sand of fruitless barren lands.
When thirst grows for the answer look to what blooms in your hands.
If you’re faithful only to the power deep within yourself
Internalize and realize you are the son of man

You’re the only thing that’s real
A fountain that can heal
You’re all you’ll ever need
Let this set you free

Focus all the beauty inside
If you shine
There’s nothing left to hide behind
When you shine
You’re empowered and divine
If you shine
Condemnation left behind
When you shine

The drop of water never stopped the fire raging in your head.
Answers come in the key of sinners if you hear all that is said.
You’ll learn and yearn to burn foundations of the grand mirage.
Replace façades that will obscure the path you’re meant to tread

You’re the only thing that’s real
A fountain that can heal
You’re all you’ll ever need
Let this set you free

Focus all the beauty inside
If you shine
There’s nothing left to hide behind
When you shine
You’re empowered and divine
If you shine
Condemnation left behind
When you shine
