Nothing More

Nothing More is an American rock band from San Antonio, Texas, United States. Formed in 2003, the band spent much of the 2000s recording independent albums and struggling to maintain a steady lineup or attract record label interest. Towards the end of the decade, the band's long-time drummer, Jonny Hawkins, decided to switch to being the band's frontman and lead vocalist, stabilizing the band's core lineup along with other long-time members Mark Vollelunga (guitar) and Daniel Oliver (bass). The band self-funded and recorded their fourth studio album, Nothing More, over the course of three years and used it to gain the attention of Eleven Seven Music record label, who signed the band to a five album record contract upon hearing it.

When you opened your eyes on the world for the first time as a child; 
How brilliant the colors were; 
What a jewel the sun was; what marvel the stars; 
How incredibly alive the trees were 
And to love again and again, 
And have people to whom we are deeply attached go to sleep and never wake up
And the laughter echoes only in one's mind... but then the echo goes
The memory, the traces are all gone
 
All your efforts, all your achievements, 
All your attainments turning into dust, nothingness
What is the feeling? what happens to you?
 
The idea of God as the potter, the architect of the universe, 
It makes you feel that life is, after all, important, 
That there is someone who cares. 
It has meaning, it has sense, and you are valuable in the eyes of the father 
But after a while it got embarrassing, the superstition, the myth, 
The absolutely unfounded idea why does anybody believe that?
 
So you become an atheist, and then you feel terrible 
After that because you got rid of God
But that means you got rid of yourself, you're just nothing but a machine
And your idea that you're a machine is just a machine too (a machine in the system)
 
So if you think that that's the way things are, you feel hostile to the world. 
You feel that the world is a neurological trap into which you somehow got caught trapped You run from the maternity ward to the crematorium and that's it that's it
So if you're a smart kid you commit suicide
 
Now I want to propose another idea all together 
The real you, is not a puppet which life pushes around. 
The real you, the real deep down you, is the whole universe. 
You cannot confine yourself to what happens inside the skin. 
Your skin doesn't separate you from the world, it's a bridge. 
But just as a magnet polarizes its-self in north and south but its all one magnet, 
So experience polarizes itself as "Self" and "Other", but it's all one.

What you call the "External world" is as much you as your own body
Most people think that when they open they're eyes 
And look around that what they are seeing is outside
It seems, doesn't it, that you are behind your eyes
We haven't realized that life and death, black and white, 
Good and evil, being and non-being, come from the same center
 
When you look for your own particularized center of being 
Which is separate from everything else, you won't be able to find it
The only way you'll know it isn't there is if you look hard enough, 
To find out that it isn't there
It isn't there at all, there isn't a separate you
There are, in physical reality, no such things as separate events
 
People can't be talked out of illusions 
If a person believes that the earth is flat, 
You can't talk him out of that, he knows that it's flat 
He'll go down to the window and see that its obvious, it looks flat 
So the only way to convince him that it isn't is to say, 
"Well let's go and find the edge".
