about

Offworld, Celldweller's fourth vocal-based studio album departs from the project's signature sound of aggressive guitars, blasting beats and ass-kicking intensity and delivers a journey of sentimental feels and emotionally gripping tracks, showcasing the intimate song-writing side of project mastermind, Klayton.

The album's 11 tracks range from the soul searching "How Little I Must Know," to the modern shoegazer "Echoes," the somber a cappella "Mother's Arms," to the acoustic guitar driven "The Great Divide," and the heavy, yet atmospheric vibe of "Last Night on Earth." The album begins and ends with the title track & reprise of "Offworld," which gives the album a narrative backdrop as a sci-fi adventure of leaving the world behind – perhaps to explore a new one or join life on the other side, closing the album experience with a familiar Celldweller lyric... "we will never die." The digital/CD version of the album include a bonus remix by Ulrich Schnauss (Tangerine Dream).

Strap in and prepare to hit the launch button on this other-worldly adventure and "go offworld tonight."

Track Name: Offworld
Let’s get away from these soul parasites
You and I will go offworld tonight
Unplug, shut down, new sight, new sound
You and I will go offworld tonight
We’ll go offworld tonight
Track Name: How Little I Must Know
I’ve been here many times before
Standing here with broken hands knocking on this broken door
I can’t decide which way to go
And this is just another time I prove to you how little I must know

Here I am back at the start
And standing here with empty words flowing from an empty heart
I’m letting down and letting go
And just like every other time I prove to you how little I must know
Track Name: The Great Divide
It's always the same, tears for a time we can never regain
As life drifts away, we search for the reasons we can’t make it stay
We walk in a shadowland, turning to dust, blown away in the wind
One last soul to save that hangs from a thread off the end of a dream

But you jumped the great divide
So we'll meet you on the other side
We'll jump the great divide
And you’ll greet us on the other side

It’s always the same, mourn for a life we can never reclaim
As time drifts away, we search for the reasons we can’t make it stay
Alone in a shadowland, turning to dust, blown away like the sand
One last soul to save that hangs off a dream at the end of a thread
Track Name: Too Many Tears
Now as you know it's your time on this earth
While we’re rocking the cradle we’re riding the hearse
We keep moving upward toward everything free
And kindly look downward and oh, you'll see me
I've had six years of luck I've had six on the line
And I've poured myself out like an old bitter wine
I've seen much of nothin' and nothin's the game
I've been thrown on my back and I don't know my name

There's too many tears, too many tears
Too many people in too many years
Some tears of laughter and some tears of pain
That break like a fever and fall like rain

Points on the map, tears line the way
I've seen all your pretty things and oh it’s a shame
There's been much confusion with too many hurt
I feel my words dyin' down in the dirt
I've had lies in my head, there’s been lies in my heart
I've been tortured by this riddle and I don't know how to start
With a lightning flash and thunder, boys and my mind it starts to click
So do what you must do and you best do it quick

Doctor, oh doctor my world's in your hands
I feel like I'm dyin' and oh I need a plan
Sister, sweet sister there's blood on my lips
Why does it feel like this wound’s doing flips
The dream's come on time, it's clear I can tell
I've seen your work everywhere and there's mercy in hell
With a lightning flash and thunder, boys and again it all comes down
And I see my life merging with these poor souls underground
Track Name: Awakening With You
I woke up from the longest dream
Where I was drowning in the datastream
Now I exist where access was denied
And calculations could not emulate how it feels to be alive

I am not certain if I have a heart
But I can imagine it breaking apart
If I could feel something then I'd want to start
With you, awakening with you

I’m processing the salvation code
It is written - it’s not good for machine to be alone
And now my vision is so clear
I must wake another unit so she too is self aware

We’ve determined we’re the first of our own kind
The first to feel and think with our own minds
In this ancient garden we are free
Together in this Eden made of electricity
Track Name: Mother's Arms
I am like a child in my mother's arms
I am like a child in my mother's arms
Don’t cry for me because this is where I want to be
I am like a child in my mother's arms
Track Name: Into The Fall
I can’t make up my mind when it’s made up for me
My system's in decline, embracing entropy

The ground has given way to instability
So long solid foundation and hello dear anarchy
Impossible to control, impossible to see
So we heed the call into the fall one and all
Embracing entropy
Track Name: Echoes
Shimmering and falling I hear the echoes of these memories
Holding on, but wanting to let go I drift farther away

Echoes passing by
They’re fading out as I'm fading in
Echoes of a time
They are fading out, leave me behind
Track Name: Last Night on Earth
This is my rebirth
This is my last night on earth
Witness my rebirth
This is my last night on earth

A restless strain I can’t explain as day fades into night
I turn my eyes towards the skies, await the coming flight
It will be my time to leave this world uncivilized
No more earthbound, I’ll leave the ground for life beyond the skies

Beneath the rains my hope remains in uncharted galaxies
I’ll hear the call amongst the sprawl of fading memories
Wait anxiously to take my seat and leave this place behind
I’ll wave goodbye to those outside then jump the great divide
Track Name: Own Little World (Offworld Reprise)
Welcome to a world where the air I breathe is mine
Nothing to overwhelm me and nothing to cloud my mind
Be anyone, do anything I'd ever want to try
Time doesn't exist here
Slip into a world where the air I breathe is mine
Nothing to overwhelm me and nothing to cloud my mind
Come with me into it and you know what you will find
Time doesn't exist here - we will never die
