about

Ancestor Austin, Texas

Ancestor began in 1997 in Clearwater, Florida.

For Brian Foster, Denny Baskett and Rob La Rocca, who had played together in Waste Mgmt, Ancestor was a musical evolution, especially in terms of the instrumental orchestration.

The first album, Ancestor, was a blend of hard-hitting riffs, glacially slow tempos and old school skank.

Return to Dust broadened the aesthetic texture.

Track Name: Silver Lake
there in your eyes
see the sign of a new world rising
scars in your mind fade away
for the birth of a century

a new world's just beginning
the chance of tomorrow's best
the worth of a new found treasure
the ghost of forgotten past

unveil a new begining
now we begin to grow
the sacred sin and mystery
open for all to see and know

you know you know

time has come for you to rise

come unto me
forever now we can see
open your mind
wake up now we can rise

seize the day
make your stand
soon enough the stars will align
and the moon and the sun will unite to reveal the silver

lake

run run away to the edge
we'll find what we've been missing
through in the end
brings me peace
and returns me to sanity

now life regains its meaning
i welcome this new world now
within this forgotten treasure
i found my inner self

confined in my mental prison
the chains begin to fall
no longer shrouded in mystery
open for all to see and know

you know you know

the time has come for you to rise

come unto me
forever now we can see
open your mind
wake up now we can rise

seize the day
make your stand
soon enough the stars will align
and the moon and the sun will unite to reveal the silver lake
Track Name: Pessimism
with dragon's breath and claws of steel
you drink my blood and pose your meal
you cripple me like kryptonite
my soul devoured you twist the knive

force feeding your disillusion
cross my will
kill my desire
my words ignored you believe your lies
you pessimism wins tonight

those who know
don't need told
and those who don't
don't listen

can you hear me now?

i build it up
you tear it down
a picture painted tainted clown
your negativity resents my fire
two face fucked up demon liar

those who know
don't need told
and those who don't
don't listen

can you hear me now?

ooh pessimism -- the world destroyer

i preach about your contradiction
your perception is my affliction
words of doubt
demons on my back
i'll have my way and cast them out

your tragedy I can relate
when pessimism is your state
it's sour soil planting seeds of regret
your paranoia will kill you yet

but still I forgive
you can't help yourself
only human just like everyone else
i hope someday you can forgive yourself
Track Name: Evolution
future visions of biology and psychology are now
behavior from a genetic point of view

you can't stop evolution

forbidden fruit -- the tree of knowledge

you can't stop the prophecy now
to inherit the wisdom of god
it's our destiny it's evolution

yes science could save us all
moral dilemma

you can't stop evolution
repairing genomes through cell regeneration

you can't stop the prophecy now
to inherit the wisdom of god
it's our destiny it's evolution

to cease this is to cease evolution
not hearing truth for fear of lies
follow the sheep and kill the shepherd
dare not to live afraid to die

you can't stop evolution

the future is calling you

you can't stop the prophecy now
to inherit the wisdom of God
science and religion united
mankind enlightened

it's our destiny it's evolution
it's our destiny it's evolution
Track Name: Tragedy
so sick and tired of this waste of time
makes me feel desolate
i look around and see such desperate lies
it's overwhelming and it's just begun

it's such a tragedy
it's been this way for all my life
the moonlight guides me home
in this demented state i roam

i try to stop it but it must be a curse
instincts dominate
born of this earth

my blood boils beneath my skin
just come in closer
let the hunt begin

you know i refuse to ever compromise
i'd say we must living with some kind of disease
infecting everyone but me

night falls and the moon stands high
dogs bark and wolves cry
i can't sleep as the night begins
cannot resist the spirts within

somehow somehow
they're out to get me and it won't be long
i know i hear their blood festered
as it echoes through the night

how long can i keep this pace
i know i must go on no matter what becomes my fate

i feel the pressure as the time goes by
too real the reckoning

my blood boils beneath my skin
just come and join us
let the hunt begin

it's such a tragedy
it's been this way for all my life
the moonlight guides me home
in this demented state i roam
Track Name: Erased by the Illuminati
silence covers me like a shroud
i part the blinds and i look around
i'm searching of some kind of movement
that could mean the end

they trace my calls and hear my plans
all information theirs to command
falling like a net that covers me
the grip of the illuminati

it's a desperate situation
no cop or weapon can protect
they want me dead
to conceal their secret sect

the minions of the black pope
obey his every word
through the masonic halls
echo rituals and rights obscure

with dread i face the possibilities
of those who came before
i want out having reached the 33rd degree
danger of life by vanishing
erased by the illuminati

they trace my calls and hear my plans
all information theirs to command
they want me dead
erased by the illuminati
