TesseracT – King (from new album Sonder)
Out now on Kscope, order here: https://tesseract.lnk.to/Sonder

Director/Producer/Editor: Kyle Kadow & Steven Cleavland
Gaffer: Spencer Ortega
PA: Casey Deitrich

Sonder adds significant firepower to the band's arsenal, blending the harsh abrasiveness of One (2011) and progressive ethereal elements of Altered State (2013) with the accessibility of Polaris (2015). Sonder is streamlined, honest and direct with all the trademark TesseracT dreamy atmospherics and bending grooves.
Singer and lyricist Daniel Tompkins explains the concept behind the new song: “Far too often we find ourselves lead into conflict and inner turmoil. Life is surely a battle, history has a bad habit of repeating itself and when living with the constraints of an onerous life it’s easy to overlook the greatest gift we’ve ever received: life itself"

The video was shot in a snowy Wisconsin following a brutal storm, to which bassist Amos adds "We have been very lucky to work with two cinematographers of such vision and quality as Kyle and Steven. We gave them free reign with the creation of the first storyboard. They chose to explore the theme of claustrophobia and how fear can control our lives. Using a luminary figure as a beacon of hope and escape for the characters."

You died within me //
The boatmen came to sail me down the river /
Bind me up with visions of a blind man //
I operate this way /
Turn nothing into gold //
Death on such an ugly day /
You dine like a king on top of the world •

You show us all //
That forgiveness is the weakest call /
And now revenge //
Against that grudge inside your tiny head /
Remove the crown of absolution //
Let the retribution fly /
The king has all the king has all //
But words can kill and maim and take their toll /
And you massacre my dreams at night //
And eat away at every thought /
Until we take control //
The king has all totalitarian and carnivore •

Bow down submit to me and kiss the ground //
Until it’s safe to breathe and coexist again /
Bow down submit to me and kiss the ground //
Until it’s safe to live and coexist again •

They’re taking away the freedom to be just you //
They’re taking away the freedom to be just you /
They’re taking away the freedom to be just you //
They’re taking away the freedom to be just you /
But the sun always shines for you //
They’re taking away the freedom to be just you •

You’d kill to find me //
But the crown above my head is deadly •

They’re taking away the freedom to be just you //
They’re taking away the freedom to be just you /
