about

Brainoil Oakland, California

In ‘98 Greg Wilkinson started playing shows with a drum machine, bass, circuit bent noise generators while singing under the moniker MrBrainoil. Playing gigs solo during that time would come to an end in early 2000 when Nathan Smith would join on guitar. Later that year, Ira Harris would round the lineup on drums to its final and only formation changing its moniker to Brainoil. ... more

Track Name: Dark Eyes Of My Past
I laugh as I gaze Into the eyes of my past. What was once pain is now myself. My worries are that of no importance. Too small to care... I am face to face with myself. Got to get outside... Away from my mind. Have I chosen right? Now that I'm gone? What if I'm wrong? No taking back my life...
Track Name: Naive In A Bliss
Blood filled tears run straight down my face. Through the anguish that is caused by my pain. Something is lost in my hopes. Never to find peace of mind. In my hopes to see my way out of this. Can I be free? I want to love my life. I want it! Can I return? Naïve in a bliss? Hope is down the hall, I feel it. Keeping my head up my hands won't be tied. I sense it.
Nothing can stop me. I'm something...
Track Name: Wielding Strength
Lost concepts bred today. Generations lost it's claim. Morale tucked deep inside. At least I'm free, free to think. Mouth sewn shut by my peers, Stitches broke over time. Concepts grown stabilized. At least I'm free, free to speak. Grasp has grown far too large. Times have changed on their own. Mind is wielding too much strength. Standing taller than before. Lost concepts bred today. Generations lost it's claim. Morale tucked deep inside. At least I'm free, free to think. Mouth sewn shut by my peers, Stitches broke over time. Concepts grown stabilized. At least I'm free, free to speak...
Track Name: Complete / Lucid Vision
As I gaze into the window of life to assess my goals. Were they completed? What will transpire from now to the end? Again I don't care...
But I know better than to look away. Images deceive as shadows and lies. Aesthetic surface, Substance denied. Transient vision, visual boundary. Lucid vision, beauty within.
Track Name: One Leaf Untouched
You wanted it, I feel the same. One leaf untouched has come onto us.
Cling to nothing inside this game. Something to build on. The leaf will turn... Exerting my time, to move on. This test will leave. The answers there and I'm cold. But when I get it, I will savor it.
Track Name: Inquisition
Distortion of your thoughts. Blinded by what you see. Frozen by what you hear. Trial of your beliefs. Test of your mind, Will, Strength, Soul.
Struggle to prove yourself. Fight for your voice. Prove your perception.
Follow your own path.
Track Name: Support In Numbers
Shadows follow me down deep in the alley. The night bears the moon staring boldly back at me. Tricking my eye I'm not alone. Figures appear all around... Hands extend. I feel nothing... Comfort is lost... Support from others... Wields no truth.
