    ------------------------------------
    SlowEarth spent four years in the studio with the concept: A visceral and provocative deconstruction of the American Dream. The 95-minute opus is both inspirational and disturbing, the juxtaposition of two diametrically opposed themes.

    SLOWEARTH challenges us to visit the modern era of fear-fed greed and manipulation, to face our conflicted disconnection and to reclaim autonomy, personal responsibility and meaning.
    Put more simply, CONSTRUCT is about searching for connection and meaning in a world filled with illusion.

lyrics

There was a time I could not see the trees
Forests grew so dense, so wide, so free
When the things that meant the most
were all so clear, were all so clean.
I could sit for hours in wide-eyed wonder
dreaming of lightning, rain and thunder
I could smell the dew, feel the wind, hear the leaves
I could sit alone and think and breath.
And run.

Run *I can feel it closing in*
Run *It will steal the child within*
Run *a mother's daughter, father's son*
Run *Can we resist, can we outrun?*
Run *Can we escape the midnight sun?*
Run *It's already begun....*

Shadows fall, dark creeps in
The shapes and wind play games causing fear within
Somethings coming, I can hear it closing in
Always looming, watching, waiting to begin

Run *I can feel it closing in*
Run *It will steal the child within*
Run *a mother's daughter, a father's son*
Run *Can we outrun?*

I hear the howl of hunger in the distance
My panic rises with my heart's resistance
I pick up the pace while the shadows stretch...
The branches sting with their slight caress.
The air grows thick as I can sense my thieves.
My footing is stolen by these devious leaves
I stumble, I fall, I taste the cool of the earth
I lay cold and alone and think back to my birth...
I wanna run inside my mind
I run, run, run...
I wanna hide.
RUN
