1.
This is not the time And your senses are on override I'm taking pictures of future memories Before it all goes down Empire falls again Long gone, youth of tomorrow New world, the money's all been spent Lost cause, get ready to place your bets I can't remember why But the blame is on the other side I'm watching holograms Of future centuries We don't recognize ourselves Empire falls again
2.
Your life is on trial There's a price on your head You're gonna have to pay For all you've given away The security is all in your mind You know the safety in numbers Is making us blind Your life is on trial Don't stand a chance What are we trying to conceal When all will be revealed All the words you ever said There's only truth or consequence You've been here before It's a dangerous world Maybe the truth isn't paved in gold All this resistance Are we playing a game? The world of denial Can't change the lie

This is not the time And your senses are on override I'm taking pictures of future memories Before it all goes down Empire falls again Long gone, youth of tomorrow New world, the money's all been spent Lost cause, get ready to place your bets I can't remember why But the blame is on the other side I'm watching holograms Of future centuries We don't recognize ourselves Empire falls again

about

“Youth Of Tomorrow” speaks of today’s disenchanted young. Social media motivated while feeling ripped off and still under control of their elder's corporate ideals, and rigidly controlled system. Comprising the classic 80s aestheticism of their analog synth based sound with tribal beats, and production of the modern digital age. “The song is a cynical, but celebratory, anthem,” says singer Darrin Huss. “It engages with today’s disenchanted youth, a demographic nostalgic for the 80s but looking towards an increasingly monetized future.”

“Truth Or Consequence” is no slouch B-Side either. Instead we have a song over 5 years in the making. Beginning as “Life on Trial” in respect to the Bradley Manning court case, and now reflecting on the freedom of said whistleblower, subsequently known as Chelsea Manning who's sentence was commuted before the end of the Obama administration. The lyrics consider protests and survival within the Trump era. Dieselgate, Twitter Trolls, and social unrest.

Vocally Darrin has reached new heights in his abilities throughout Psyche’s latest live performances, and it definitely shows on the new recordings. Stefan Rabura with his exceptional sense of sonic abilities, and intuitive soundscaping is the perfect match for Darrin’s brother Stephen, who left us just as Psyche began their renaissance through their 30th anniversary releases of their 80s masterpieces on ArtofFact Records.

This is the 12” single all Psyche fans need.
