about

The Chasm City EP is a four part science-fiction rock opera written and recorded by Ottawa digi-rock two piece Ultranaut. This record is meant to be listened to as a whole. It tells the story of a man whose identity is left shattered across time and space. He awakens from cryogenic stasis without any memory but slowly uncovers the truth of his journey to the planet known as Yellowstone and the place called Chasm City.

Track Name: Part 2: The Revelation of The Melding Plague And Orbital Descent Into Chasm City
We sailed across the skies, to leave the Earth behind, and find another place, to make our own now

We left her warm embrace, we conquered time and space, and this is our reward a never ending nightmare

So won't you come to the Yellowstone, we all know the lucky ones will die in transfer, your armour's on the wall, prepare yourself for war, you asked for it this is the crown you so desire

I couldn't save your soul, but time slowed to a crawl, I tried to make myself into a better person

It turned out for the worse, and time itself is cursed, soon enough the past becomes our future history

Welcome home to Chasm City
Track Name: Part 3: Elegy - The Lament For Sky's Edge And The Vow of Retribution
Space is cold, the universe is dark, life is short and soon we shall part
Don't be fooled, all the world's a stage, life and death are settings in the play

And its been a while since I've felt your touch, and I realize now it don't mean much, you always were so cold, just wanted you to know, you only took my soul

I'm coming back for you, I vow revenge against his soul to cross the void and take my toll

I'll wear another face, I've changed my life without a trace, I can't recall which body I've replaced

Sky's Edge it's calling me away
Sky's Edge she's asking me to stay
I've made so many damn mistakes
You know that life is what you make

I've crossed a sea of stars and now I know this bitter place is my reward
Track Name: Part 4: The Aftermath And The Transcendence of The Lighthugger "Nostalgia For Infinity"
All we have left is each other, tired of killing one another
With the fools on parade, we dug our own graves now we stand or fall
This is our last call to arms, so raise the flag sound the alarm
At the end of this day, will we fade away or live on... We live on.
