about

Plutonium Pacemaker was the follow-up to our Over Java E.P. test run with the new Boss BR-8 Digital Recorder, which we purchased during the 2000-2001 year. This was the first full length album, where we used something other than audio tape. This was also the first (and only) album where we brought on a third member to TR0LL, Sydney Losstarot. In all actuality, TR0LL was a quartet, as Syd's friend, Chris Gibson, had also laid a few tracks down during the recording.

During these sessions, I had moved out my apartment, to give Brian and his fiance some space, and moved in with Sydney and two other roommates. Many late nights were spent at Denny's on the west side of Madison, writing lyrics, downing coffee and smoking cloves. I must admit, this was my favorite time in the TR0LL era. Looking back on our other various albums, I also feel that this is my favorite album. Things sort of came together with this release. Sure, we still sucked...and all our vocals sounded like monotonous crap, but the tracks fit. Musically, it felt as if we were a band for the first time. It was a good year and the beginning of a new millennium. I'd say this album was the climax, the peak of TR0LL's run. I think it is safe to say that Living A Lie is still my favorite song that we have ever done; smooth and sorrowful.

As always, these albums are free to download.

Enjoy,
~Michael Hasenfang

Track Name: Dimension
I am a fluffy little death bear
And I've come to say to you
Leave the cheese out of this
How dare you bring the cheese here...

Come over, come here
Let me see you face
I know it's worrying you
My iridescent eyes
Look up to the sky
Tell me what do you see?
Just one big oblivion up above
Remember, ain't all for free

Strap on your angel wings
And fetch me a pot of gold
Your rainbow end
Is getting old

So what's the difference
If I beat you to the ground?
Is it my fault I've breath
That wants you down

I have your favorite
Come take em black
I have a puppy
Pierced with a meat hook
I'm sliding into the nether-dimensions
Into the nether-dimensions
Track Name: The Mold
Driving to the stars
Pollution, fancy cars
Your hair is blown by the wind
Let me back up a percent

And the mold hold true
What can you do about this now?

You may come back
Yet off you track
You are out of your mind
And you can't rewind
Track Name: Seahorses & Night Owls
Shapeless matter lying next to me
Escape this trickery. I know you and I can't remember
Concrete abstractness making it confusing
To recall the name and the face lying next to me

I promised you a future far away
Where seahorses and night owls roam and play
Here we'll stay

Forming sculpture laying next to me
I knew you yesterday. I knew you, now I can't remember
Yet here you're sleeping next to me
So angelically, so sweet and peacefully, next to me
Track Name: Darkwave 80
[instrumental]
Track Name: Martyr I'll Die
The sky is turned shades of grey
The roads of blood have been paved
And all illusions of love denied
The desperate times I've tried
And I've seen all beings
Yes, I've seen all things

And as they turned their minds away
The roads of blood are paved
I did it all for yesterday
I couldn't die a slave
And I was free for all beings
Yes, I have done all things

Though may drag me off
I can't count the tears you'll cry
Remember my words
"Martyr I'll die!"
And though you may kill now
I can't count the times you've lied
Remember my words
"Martyr I'll die!"

So burdened in self pity
Redemption lay at me
I offer strength in godly things
I offer sanity
And I've deceived for all being
Yes I've consumed all things

The sky is turned shades of grey
The roads of blood have been paved
I did it all for yesterday
I couldn't die a slave...
Track Name: Witches Brew
You cackle insistently
On the way escapades
Steals your heart away
And how the movement of Mars
Affects your brain

I listen to all the words you say
Intoxified by it every day
Yet you claim to be sure
That your solitude
Keeps you warm inside
Yet I know you

Witches Brew
I put a spell on you
There's nothing you can do
Except to feel it too
Witches Brew

Witches Brew
I put a spell on you
There's nothing else to do
Accept to feel it too
Witches Brew

You bullshit insistently
To escape the pain of
Humiliating experiences
They play each day
And throw directly at you

I listen to all the words you say
Intoxified by them every day
Yet you claim to be sure
That your solitude
Keeps you warm inside
Yet I know you
Track Name: Kristine
Slam!
Light another cigarette
And drag it to the floor
Lost in love
Lost...and longing for more

No hope
I'm crying now
Wept thousand tears
For fear alone
I'm tired of being alone

Kristine!
No more
Lost dreams!
Dragged to the floor

Regret
Life ambition's no more
Light another cigarette
And drag it...drag it the floor

Kristine!
Kristine, no more

Cry out
Light another cigarette
Regret
Pull ambition to the floor
Track Name: Living A Lie
Yesterday, I gave away all my fears aside
Different now, I am today, lost in selfish pride
Yesterday, I bought a dress; Image of you inside
Beauty set to rest, a captured vision, in my hopeful eyes

Yet all this time, I poured my heart out
Only to be held out on the line
And all this time, when I felt this love
I was a part in living a lie
Not knowing why...

Yesterday, I saw you there, smiling in the rain
Wash away all your tears, cast forth another day
Yesterday, I held you near, to know you felt the same
And yesterday, kneeling by your side; My arms only to blame

And all this time, I poured my heart out
Only to be held out on the line
And all this time, when I felt this love
I was a part in living a lie
And all this pain
Lose to your ambition; I was naive
And here you left me
Not knowing why...
I'm living a lie
Living a lie...
Track Name: Wasted Emotion
[instrumental]
Track Name: Rich White Bastard
Well I'm rich
And I am white
And you know what is right
For you to see the light

Just give up your rights
Give up life
Give up your wife
Just for my strife

Well I'm rich
And I'm white, you bitch!
You fight against my God given right
For I have your time
And I have your mind
It's all mine!
It's all mine!
Your slave
Your slave, designed to grind

Bitch! I want it!
Bitch! I want it!
You bitch!

Bitch, you'll never win!
Track Name: Aquarius Sarcophagus
February girl, why live your life so alone?
Water bearing girl, a heart encased in fragile stone
I want to be the one
The one that tries to break on through
I want to be the one
The one that tries to break into, break on through for you

February girl, you know your face is beautiful?
Water bearing girl, you know your eyes are deep and true?
I want to be the one
The one that tries to swim on through
I want to be the one
The one that tries to swim into, swim on through for you

I want to be the one
The one that tries to break into
I want to be the one
The one that tries to break in through, break on through for you
I want to be the one
The one that tries to swim into
The one that tries to swim into, swim on through for you
Track Name: Christmas Day
You're not alone, you're not with me
I'm not with anyone, you see
I wish you'd see a better way
To view this season joyfully
The present changes everything
This love and hate of mixed feelings
Flows through you in pulsing veins
And kill me if I'm wrong for caring

I'm not with you, you're not with me
You're not with anyone, I see
The coldness took your life away
And left it with old memories
If I could take them all away
Replace them with candy canes
And sugar plums and colored lights
And tinsel you up in blue and white, now...

Eve will come and here I'll stay
I'll wished for you on Christmas Day
Kneel and pray, wish as may
I'll wait for you on Christmas Day

You're not alone, you're not with me
I'm not with anyone, you see
I wish you'd see a better way
To view this season joyfully
If I could take them all away
Replace them with candy canes
And sugar plums and colored lights
And tinsel you up in blue and white

I'm here with you, you're here with me
So here I am, so patiently
I pray this never stays the same
I pray this never has to change
If I could have one wish today
I'd hope you'll never go away
To wake up in the morning rise
And see your eyes right next to mine
On Christmas Day
