The Ciem Show invites the listener on a journey into the realm of the absurd, through surreal landscapes of sonic exploration and meaningful dissociation. Metal and rock become passing signposts on the road to musical experimentation.

Track Name: Scene III: Derealization
Track Name: Scene VI: Theme for Lost Children
I can’t give you all my dreams ⋄ Nor the life I live ⋄ You and I won’t friendship miss ⋄ That’s all we got to give ⋄ Who will take your dreams away ⋄ Takes your soul another day ⋄ What can never be lost is gone ⋄ It’s stolen in a way ⋄ Please, don’t stand too close to me ⋄ Can you hear my heart ⋄ Take my woe and lean on me ⋄ When we’re not apart ⋄ Now our mission is complete ⋄ And our friends are hid ⋄ Evil things brought down by the light ⋄ Life goes on until the end
Track Name: Scene VII: Shattered Self-Reflection
I cannot remember what it was that came before ⋄ All I know is that I’m alone (within each fragment of every thinking body) ⋄ Subjective pieces of a collective unconscious ⋄ Which have been dispersed upon reflection ⋄ Each remnant in solitude trying to find their way back home ⋄ Shaping their own images ⋄ Before the night conceived the stars ⋄ Before the dawn ⋄ Before the eyes deceived us all ⋄ A place I no longer recall ⋄ I must have been sleepwalking ⋄ Through my nightmares ⋄ In which I caught a glimpse ⋄ Of my own self reflection ⋄ Becoming aware of my own futility ⋄ Is this real ⋄ Nothing ⋄ Or just something ⋄ Is real ⋄ I’ve been longing ⋄ To feel ⋄ I tried to create ⋄ In order to understand ⋄ And now that I know ⋄ I have become ⋄ More incomplete
