about

Vaporizer was a song recorded in 2006 and featured in an award winning independent zombie film, "Bled White." This track brings an underground industrial feel that isn't typically associated with Fluid Minds. During the time of this recording, we drew a lot of our influences from Nine Inch Nails, Radiohead, & Muse… which explains the different vibe of the material. With this in mind, we felt that the week of Halloween & Dia de los Muertos would be a great opportunity to finally release Vaporizer.

The idea behind this release was to include some of our other experimental tracks that fit the same "dark side" theme as Vaporizer. Most of the songs started as demo beats/compositions from various members of the group. They've collected dust over the years, but have been re-worked specifically for this album. We hope you appreciate our passion to try new things as musicians. Please enjoy these free unreleased tracks on behalf of Fluid Minds.

Track Name: Vaporizer
I'm having a bad day
And I'm so tired I want to cry
When I play sweet music
I get so incredibly high
I put my heart and soul into it
And the sweat burns my eyes
Got my guitar in my hand
That’s all I need
No one understands the burdens that I carry

It’s enough to destroy a soul

There's a howling wind blowin’
And it’s so cold outside
Don't even want to get out of bed
All I want to do is hide

It’s enough to destroy a soul
Track Name: Trail Of Your Own Blood
Is it better to be free or a slave?
I still can’t tell which choice I’ve made
It’s like being sliced down the middle
With a rusty blade

Following a trail of your own blood
To an early grave
Keep on digging to find some sleep in the bed I’ve made

Do we really choose
Or is it captivity
Could we handle the shadows
Where eyes don’t see
Thoughts pull a muscle
The weight is too heavy

Following a trail of your own blood
To an early grave
Keep on digging to find some sleep in the bed I’ve made
Track Name: Contrails
I see contrails in the sky
Floating up so high
Track Name: Bitter n Bruised, Dazed n Confused
I’m just an old soul saddened by the loneliness in my world
I’m that lime green mold behind that place you forgot all about
Bitter and Bruised, Dazed and Confused
A thought shot in my head
ricochet more than a bullet ever could
I’m just pickin’ up the pieces of my skull
With all the brain matter on the floor
it’s any wonder I can still think at all

I’ve got a dark cloudy soul
Forecasted rain during your parade
I don’t mean to be mean, It’s just the way it seems
I can’t stop thinking that
I’m Bitter and Bruised, Dazed and Confused
A thought shot in my head
ricochet more than a bullet ever could
I’m just pickin’ up the pieces of my skull
With all the brain matter on the floor
it’s any wonder I can still think at all
