Accomplices is a modern musical trilogy.

It is told in 3 EPs that can be listened to separately or together in sequence.

The story focuses on personal liberation through public rebellion. It begins as an abstract narrative, weaving through different perspectives and characters. The prism of the Accomplices story is Phoenix. Articulate yet speechless, inspired yet immobile, Phoenix represents the common person and their potential. The story follows Phoenix to and through a revolution, its many shapes and forms, and the friends and foes along the way.

This is the second part of the story, “You Might Get Caught”

Track Name: The Hunger
All these flames
these flames assembling have turned the sky to smoke. The trees will soon disappear
and people will turn to ghosts.
They’ll turn to ghosts oh they’ll turn oh they’ll turn.
All these flames they’ve got us trembling
as a part of this big joke.
An elaborate scheme
an accomplice dream
a pulsing hoax.
All these flames they’ve got us surrounded
every pattern they use is every tool we’d refuse
and out come the wolves in shapes so apocryphal
As the element of distance slowly slips away
deep into the vanishing points of our own decay
so will a voice among us rise above us
and prove the cover, reveal the smother
and prove to the others
prove to the others prove to the others
that they’ve got the teeth but we’ve got the hunger!
Track Name: Condition
Feed. All you do is Feed.
You are my bodies.
Shapes I sew.
I put your shadows into the well-known
the hive of the roam.
What’s this condition that you call human?
Dependence writhing? Beyond sickening.
Feed. All you do is Feed.
Tiny tiny insect I am the dream.
I am the secret.
The white noise machine.
Turn it on but don’t turn it on me.
Stay in line, rack up those trays while I rack up
your hides as you occupy as you open wide.
Come on! Do you want to face it?
Come on, face yourself tonight.
Come on! Do you want to chase it?
Come on, there is no place to hide.
Come on! Do you want to face it?
Come on! There is no place to hide!
Track Name: Take it Apart
between you and me and no one else
so contagious fears spread ages
hold me tonight under some light
between you and me and no one else
designed the machine glistening
lies for the hows beyond the whys
can you find the difference
between history and ruin
a lack of space the distances you’ve been displaced
its so sad we’ve contracted all we had
so whats the plan?
it only shifts with your hand.
so take my heart, take it apart.
between you and me and no one else
beware oh beware of free mystery
and what seems easy now is only sequencing
just between you and me
why don’t you demand what you don’t understand demand what you really need to know
because they will hunt you wherever you go
Track Name: To the Lives
Portrait of the artist as young man
bleeding fingers life is in his hands
but what can I tell you that he can’t?
Just a few more words to pile on the plan
its so easy so easy to hate
just let your mind spin speeds
no one can relate to you and your exhibitions
your proofs of the world
but from such angles can you see the axis twirl?
Here inside the walls I fill them all with tire
so at any moment I can set the empire to fire
but all around me the world is burning off
no one smells the smoke
but we’ve all got the same cough
to the hives I dedicate a little anarchy
to the lives of because
to lives without any urgency
and to those trapped in jaws of what they are not
say it delicate “now”
say it delicate “now”
say it delicate now like you might get caught.
Are you alive? Now?
Are you alive? Now? Yes! I’m alive!
