about

New Jersey Prog trio Mythology comes out the gate swinging with a charming, yet highly ambitious first album! Recorded when each of its members were barely into adulthood, "Greatest Hits" showcases a group of young men full of piss and vinegar with a lot to prove! All the while throwing a generous amount of dark humor in their lyrics

Track Name: Gone Astray
Gotta get myself out of this place
But my feet are tied and I don’t know why
I’m boiling over, falling down
Don’t think I can stick around
Blown my chances time and time again

Don’t know why I do the things that hurt me most:
Pick the bottle up, and get a bloody nose,
Float in space for hours, cough it all back up
I can’t handle one time
Quit society and wander aimlessly
Where the wind blows is my home
Fail to see this is a false reality
And I will wake up when it’s time.

Straight and narrow is much harder than it sounds
I broke the chain and still feel just the same
I walk a path and look ahead
I’m not that far from being dead
I turn around and walk the other way
Track Name: Falling Fast
I got a feeling that my life ain’t worth it
I wanna smile but I can’t seem to do it
24/7 hurtin’ inside
I can’t stand going through with this lie
I ain’t happy although I look it
Name a drug and I probably took it
Gotta do something good to myself
Straighten up, fly right, get some help

Take me far, far away from here
Away from all these crocodile tears
Help me soon cuz I’m falling fast
Don’t know how much longer I am going to last

I wanna feel like the game’s worth playing
And that I’ll earn a reward for staying
But I wake up everyday feeling sadder
So convinced that nothing even matters
It’s a drag when you can’t even smile
And every action takes and extra mile
Barely eating and sleeping all day
This is how I get away
Track Name: Wolf War
Staring at the sky on a moonlit night
Savoring this sweet lupine delight
Hundreds of peasants now masked with fright
Forming as wolves in the pale moonlight

Wolven flesh torn from the bone
Fangs that seek to find the holy throne
Violent quest for the wars unknown
The howling pack is now on its own

Riding to the moon on dragon’s wings
The warriors of wolf are the beastliest of things
Wielding thy swords whilst they sing
The fire is in the eyes of the wolven king
Track Name: Big Biscuit Man
4 hours passed and I didn’t seem to notice
How long have I been here?
Did I stumble into a slumber oh so deep
And all I feel is fear
The ogres of the night they plead with me to join them
And see what they see
Was that real? Did I see that? Were they speaking?
My mind’s playing tricks on me

Don’t know what has happened to me but I know it ain’t quite right
Don’t feel the way I used to feel and the fear strikes me all night

I can’t control it taking over any longer
I now belong to them
I feel it move across my body and beyond it
It’s everywhere
I have no choice but to accept it and embrace it
They are now my friends
The orgres win, I am their’s. They are mine
Is there any end?
Track Name: Wasting My Day
I’m just so bored now
I’ve done nothing all day
Oh what’s the score now?
Absolutely zilch to say
Oh what’s been happening
In the world outside my head?

I’m on an island, it happened again
I slept all day and the world left without me
And everyday now, I waste away now
I could be doing things that matter
Sleep my woes away
Could’ve been a better day
If I just got out of bed

I’m thinking sadly
I’d put my problems on the shelf
But it hurts so badly
I did this only to myself
I’ll send a postcard from the world inside my head

I’m on an island, it happened again
I slept all day and the world left without me
And everyday now, I waste away now
I could be doing things that matter
Hiding from my vice
Oh wouldn’t it be nice
If I just got out of bed?
Track Name: Beside You
Across the room, other side
Lovely woman to behold
Looked at me, smiled bit
Turned away immediately
Playing games, flirting eyes
Eyebrow that move teasingly
Nothing left to do
But make a move and take to you

I’m going to make my way beside you, move around inside you, excite you!

Say “Hello!”, smile and greet
Better looking from up close
Eyes that warm, ebony hair
Skin that’s so soft to the touch
Playful touch, have a laugh
All is going very well
Charming you, no problem
Cannot wait to make you mine

Got you now all alone
Nobody now but us two
Hold you close in my arms
I can now see all of you
Squeeze me tight, touch me soft
Kiss everywhere possible
Stare into each other’s eyes
Have you with me all night long
Track Name: Scott's Stones
They got him on his knees,
but sometimes it’s not so bad
They’d better leave him soon
Cuz they’re starting to make him mad
I wanna help him
But there is nothing I can do, I think
Cuz there’s only so much water one man can drink!

Scott’s Stones! They won’t leave him alone!
There’s something about 'em,
Cuz they won’t come out him!
Scott’s Stones! They make him piss and moan!
They say all things must pass
But they just seem to last
Cuz it’s Scott’s Stones!

So Scooter might just have his last ride
But the stones keep committing their homicide!
He pushes and pushes tim he thinks he’ll explode
But we’ll just have to wait till the next episode!
Track Name: Demon Guitar (The Battle Of Mount Olympus)
And the Gods spoke down from the Heavens
Said unto thee:
HERE COMES MYTHOLOGY!
Their weapons were instruments
They played so violently
Oh what a sight to see!
They crushed their opponents well
No danger seemed to be
They fought so effortlessly
You could hear them from afar
Their sound was something sweet
HERE COMES MYTHOLOGY!

Demon Guitar! Demon Guitar! They sold their souls for the Demon Guitar!

And the Gods fought back with a vengeance
So they could keep their domain so pristine!
But Mythology fought with a hammer Thor couldn’t beat
And bashed in his skull with defeat!

And the Gods backed off in terror; Ignominy!
Because they knew they’d been beat
And so our heroes took their place upon the seat
Once meant for Godly majesty!
