Cody Lee One of the best tracks Existem has put out, and one of the better progressive metal tracks I have heard. It's great.

Stand alone project with producer Josh Barber


These shades of colors
Run around me
They show how proud
They are to be set free

Figures I feel I know
From dark from light
They seem not tied to Earth
Yet from opposing sides

Oh what could be
These things I see
They flow inside
My tired eyes

Absurd, abstract
they tend to act
I watch and wait
while they create

Two halves one life
Decisions come from inside
They beckon you forward
While pulling you back

These dilemmas
Come forth as colors
Affect the patterns of
Biological peace

These colors fight for

The red and white collide
Ignites the endless fight
This violence in my mind
Closed eyes
I see inside
