about

The second release from Minnesota's indie deity Coeus the Boxing Titan, "Insomniatic Myth" is an Industrial Rock record with the far reach of Prog and Psychedelia, taking you on a chaotic journey through the brain of the sleep-deprived and unleashing eccentric musical sounds that you've only dreamed about. Taking influence from experimental artists like Beck, Trent Reznor, John Frusciante and Radiohead, Coeus punches through the surface of traditional music, freeing itself from the shackles of burdens like "band members", "genre", and "professionalism", and replacing them instead with beautiful soundscapes of samples, fuzz, and instrumentation, building up until they gently EXPLODE into your eardrums.

Despite utilizing nothing more than cheap equipment and a PC, each track places heavy emphasis on strong compositions and a beautiful atmosphere. Songwriter Aron Patterson provides the disembodied voice and lyrics for the Coeus project, weaving together words describing insomnia, love, addiction, and facing the fact that you're addicted to love (which is surprisingly more difficult than Palmer implies).

Track Name: A Giant Leap
would've swallowed all of cloud nine
but it would never digest
feeling weary from bitterness
and all we had to deal with

once hand in hand, we'd fall to fate
though it'll never kill us
war will eventually end, you'll see
we'll both get some sleep at last
and dream

-chorus-
restrained and
soft-spoken
with blood beneath my feet
not cuz I'm
heart broken
but love was a giant leap


utilizing fire and lies
I'd try to describe us
never realized why my blood
made your ancient knife rust

I had lost all control and trust
cause I wasn't sure what love was
if I had a chance, wouldn't take it back
let it stay, that gap between us

-chorus-
restrained and
soft-spoken
with blood beneath my feet
not cuz I'm
heart broken
but love was a giant leap
Track Name: Bright Side
analyze the bright side
blind in an eye, of course
brace for some more sunlight
throw it on out the door

bound up and captivated
medication has no taste
insomnia's ageless,
bite for affliction's sake

anxiety and anguish
staying patient just in case
it's clock-work of constants
beneath a human's face

I bet there's a bright side
I bet there's a bright side

-chorus-
buried deep~
underneath the clouds
lies the sea~
pulling waves of doubt
I can't sleep~
the water's far too loud
wanna shout~
one day I'll learn how, baby


buried in a chasm
where symbolism makes sense
who knows what our love meant?
chalk it up to confidence

she's colored by concern
sweating orange in cold smoke
judgement's naked by me
singing blues like it's a joke

I dedicate my life
to swimming in the fire
life was my diversion
disguised by desire

we can't survive our lies
let nature take it's course
she'd make a sexy ex
days before the divorce

there won't be no trial
'less it's by flames or swords
in this life it's die or a
dice roll on the board

I bet there's a bright side
I bet there's a bright side

-chorus x2-
buried deep~
underneath the clouds
lies the sea~
pulling waves of doubt
I can't sleep~
the water's far too loud
wanna shout~
one day I'll learn how, baby
Track Name: It Begins In Confusion
confusion is the basis
for each relationship
regardless what ya think
love ain't the mothership, so

the grey heart-shaped blades that
have torn all those rips
is cutting edge regret
with a stiff upper-lip, but

let's both keep hope tucked back
behind them eye sockets
or hide some up our sleeves
should it be so shocking?

let's at least be honest that
we're not here for talking
just feed some vague escapes
that our brain keeps on blocking

watching some who wince at
mortality
finding ways to stay drunk,
young and happy

but if you thought youth was
so goddamn great
you'd've drank that angst with
fewer shots of heartbreak

-chorus-
found it in a metaphor
you fight to describe it
yet when it's been defined
still find you're blind-sided

found it in a metaphor
let someone else write it
yet when it's been inscribed
still find you're blind-sighted


so what can I say, babe
I'm an optimistic version
of each dead-beat dick that
you've wasted time kissing

I don't wait to be kissed
won't beg for permission
at times my mind may drift
so pretend I can listen

let's all lay here til sunrise
and witness what this day brings
or just call it a night
and sleep until it turns spring

who wants to be romantic
when it's just a quick fling?
since anyone's a prick
if you ain't sick from the sting

I'm standing in a crowd
noone's staring my way
once felt comfort
til I stumbled on stage

cuz the word "self"
it wasn't what it seemed
can't quite hear you
somebody please hurt me

-chorus-
found it in a metaphor
you fight to describe it
yet when it's been defined
still find you're blind-sided

found it in a metaphor
let someone else write it
yet when it's been inscribed
still find you're blind-sighted
Track Name: Backstabber's Ink
I live alone
inside my head
repeat each word
til English is dead

disown each verse
of black and red
that litter my path
as scattered out meds

escape each line
that forms on my face
erase each phrase
like faith is misplaced

gripped by addiction
each second's a chase
who could hold comfort
clenching mistakes?

obsessions tease you
ideas that bleed through
the kind that cling to
your wounds like a tissue

-chorus-
when reality bends
why bother to self-reflect and think?
claim these means as an end
as if your blood's a backstabber's ink


I'm stuck alone
inside my brain
can't write words as
prose for the sane

bagged up the past
flushed it down the drain
void of memories
gets flooded like rain

only to find out
behind that dam was
all those reminder
I couldn't bear to give up

-chorus-
when reality bends
why bother to self-reflect and think?
claim these means as an end
as if your blood's a backstabber's ink
Track Name: As Men Do
witness this mortal
overblowing each dream
bringing morning torture
twisting when his brain screams

watch him travel circles
pretend he's someplace new
makes me seethe in anger
but what the hell could I do?

monster laying dormant
I'm thoughts sheltered in his head
he wants so bad to live
I need to see him dead

walking winding pathways
sudden ends with him lost
maybe if I break him
then I can make my own laws

-chorus-
a shrieking voice I can't ignore
like it's taking a human form
this creature's scratching at my door
who knows what the hell I am anymore


imprisoned by a child
was trapped as fantasy
but adulthood leapt out
divorced reality

searchin' for a way out
breathing in his head rust
exhale as swallowed doubt
like bloody flem he coughed up

he begins to lose sight
inverse of an eclipse
moments never noticed
I'd make sure he missed it

cuz it's insignificant
if it can't affect you
no we're not narcissists
we breath and bleed as men do

dripping from a portrait
drowning in negatives
sink so deep in dark rooms
praying that a god exists

sleep in ash pitched stillness
he'll creep beneath my bed
reminiscing regrets
there's a demon in my head

-chorus-
a shrieking voice I can't ignore
like it's taking a human form
this creature's scratching at my door
who knows what the hell I am anymore
Track Name: Annie
-chorus-
now Annie, I know that
you prolly never loved me
I still pretend you're almost
everything

wrote this song while drunk so
take these words as fleeting
I'm missing you more with
every drink


no idea where
we even stood so we
took the high road
above the heavens, so

we could avoid those
fakes that barely made it
we've been in bliss
just had enough of it

hands over limbo
rising golden clouds we've
woven some demons
that haunt us even now

you're walking forward
on a crooked path, I'm glad
and what could I say?
I've felt the same in the past

-chorus-
now Annie, I know that
you prolly never loved me
I still pretend you're almost
everything

wrote this song while drunk so
take these words as fleeting
I'm missing you more with
every drink

we crashed to earth
it was a rough landing
our crater was small
but it left a lot of meaning

our very first curse
was to just inflict this
pain we were feeling
on others like a virus

can't comprehend it
what the hell had happened?
left ourselves helpless
our souls, black and stranded

Annie, you had said
least we were together
hadn't know back then
you'd haunt me forever~

now Annie, I know that
yesterday seems years away
like you're just a drop in
an hourglass

asking for another
saying you'll be OK
cuz ya only drink to the
empty half

-chorus x2-
now Annie, I know that
you prolly never loved me
I still pretend you're almost
everything

wrote this song while drunk so
take these words as fleeting
I'm missing you more with
every drink
Track Name: Serendipity
-intro chorus-
I snatch the pill
from the still filled bottle
set it on my dry tongue
and struggle to swallow

good outta bad
I'm up to three to sleep
awake late and praying
thanking god these are cheap


fueled by stress and
some energy drinks
caffeinated medication
'til I'm begging to blink

now and then, get sick
in the kitchen sink
stare at the face being mirrored
and take a sec to think

a moron from a small town
shook the bottle up and down
heard the rattle, loved that sound
is proud considered sane now?

cuz when it's in his system
it dims his eyes and then some
he's on another mission
for more good nights to piss on

but is it deep
to say I'm faking depth?
is getting sleep
the same as getting rest?

begin the hunt
for those elusive friends
how'd I end up
so far from my bed?

most of his heroes
OD'd on these pills
so chilling to be near them
they fuel him getting killed

ignoring them ghosts
like they're photo stills
just slowing those emotions
like he's broken the reel

cuz the fire dies so early
and all I knew was safety
it seems like dreams we're chasing
when all I hear is poor me

how long have I been at sea
I'm begging for some sound sleep
with all these thoughts I now bleed
each dying breath's a loud plea~

is it so much
to ask to sleep again?
or find someone
keep this focus on them?

know from the past
that no memories
can take me back
I'm addicted to the dreams

-outro chorus-
I snatch the pill
from the still filled bottle
set it on my dry tongue
and struggle to swallow

good outta bad
I'm up to six to sleep
awake late and saying
"thank satan these are cheap"

I
spent
all
night
thinking
of you

I
fig-
ured
you
couldn't
sleep too
Track Name: For Immortality
dear broken mirror
we meet again
cracks caked like tears
in your reflection

that scar on my face
ain't mine after all
not known to get so
emotional

I'm from the darkest
recess of my mind
that small single space
that helps me unwind

liquid hits the lips
I can hardly breathe
through throat to liver
live or die in peace

-chorus-
emptied the skyline
so I'd never die
closing a blind eye
so I'd never die


my old alarm clock
we meet again
was there a spare moment
you wouldn't let me rent?

penetrates my ears
I damn near lose it
punch to the mouth when
the whole world's toothless

I travel through time
drinking and sleeping
as a deity
arose as it's sinking

are you medieval?
no! you're the whole thing
transient ego
that's fit for a king

crazed became the new sane
waking brought the same pain
so I embraced my demons
in new myths to believe in

insomniac disguise
an echo in his lies
when one night he realized
pride is an anti-christ

-chorus-
emptied the skyline
so I'd never die
closing a blind eye
so I'd never die
Track Name: Godcomplex
easier to believe
everyone's
searching for the right thing

whether it's love, smiles, trust,
the world or
waiting for the spring

don't know what
it is I'm
searching for

this ark's good
at sailing
far off course

still be wishing
it was something more
when I find it~
yeah, if I find it~

-chorus-
why can't I play god?
why can't I play god?
why can't I play god?
why can't I play


and at first the gods made
man and
then they gave us love

nothing's going quite to
plan when
there's noone you can trust

and I can't question
existence
but I had hoped
it'd be more than this

pardon me for
my reluctance
I can't accept this
I won't accept this

-chorus x2-
why can't I play god?
why can't I play god?
why can't I play god?
why can't I play
Track Name: Bar Noise
sea of bodies sway
to motionless words
noone's listening
just chasing some skirts

as the walls close in
think "why am I here?"
shaking from the kick
between sips of beer

then I smiled
of course
cuz that's
what we're here for

couldn't
even care
cuz we're
too damn impaired

-chorus-
another
adventure
at the bar

too drunk to
care where we are


blinded by strobe lights
and a noisy beat
swarming mob of filth
starts to shift their feet

a dumb little drunk
stumbles up to me
vomits on my shirt
and spills my drink

still I'll smile
at her
guess that's
what we're here for

couldn't
even care
cuz we're
too damn impaired

-chorus-
another
adventure
at the bar

who even knows
where we are...

another
adventure
at the bar

too drunk to
care who you are
Track Name: Insomniatic Myth
it's been days since
I got any sleep

trying to find
escape in these sheets

is this what it takes to
stoke the fires?

cuz while they still burn I'm
always~ tired~


sober as a zombie
so someone shoot me
though not quite sleeping
I'm always dreaming

I won't admit that
inside I feel it
an aching hunger
that makes me human

the past's ambiance
kills or inspires
whether tossed or turned
it'll flirt with desire

much as I'd like some
peace and quiet
it feels like my mind's
a goddamn riot
Track Name: Who's Lonely
our last romantic night
I need you more than water
temptation's nothing more than
stirring booze in sulfur

venom's in this carnage
deep within this ether
her eyes should keep closed cuz
fate would rather tease her

takes more than
hate to tame me
I'll use it
like a lotion

just weave those
metaphors baby
I'll teach ya
how I sow 'em

-chorus x2-
what's lonely?
who's sane?
who's phony?
what's changed?
we're close and
I'm the same
distance is a
tricky game


whole skull engulfed in flames
can't sleep and it's early
yell and push when I'm close
and scream each time I breathe

each empty tower wall
that these spirits tore down
made me lose my language
but still I speak somehow

burning in the furnace
I'm paranoid and spaced in
never thought this surface
would burn from creation

ya suck your cigarette
like smoke's the closest you'll get
towards touching them skies
til you die in regret

it began in chaos
embraced confusion
we learn to live again
each revolution

who makes songs that you'd
never listen to?
or vents everything
dorian or blues?

I write the same lyrics
living love like rhymes
yet I feel like it's new
almost every time

-chorus x2-
what's lonely?
who's sane?
who's phony?
what's changed?
we're close and
I'm the same
distance is a
tricky game
