about

Released in late 2007, “Psychosis” is a hectic 12-track piece of electronica mayhem, delving into the furthest corners of a troubled mind. Straight from the get-go the album starts to deal with complicated issues, smoothly masked by a fun, pumping sense of energy and entertainment. The opener "Hard Drug Abuse" not only kicks off the album but introduces one of the main themes: drugs and their affect on the human psyche.

There is a lot of stigma about mental illness, most people don’t even know what psychosis is, let alone understand it. The album explores various facets of the disease as experienced by the artist, ranging from moments of complete depression (such as the lyric “Every day I wake up I wish I was dead.” from "Psychosis (Episode Two)") to spontaneous, warped humour ("Doctor Seuss Or A Sheep?"), and the questioning of reality ("All This Is Real (I Hope)"), yet still maintaining a look at the positive side of things ("Everybody Get Up And Fuckenndance (Cos This Is MDMA)!").

The brain is an organ like any other part of the body, and can be broken as easily as you can break your arm, most commonly by overindulgence in mind-altering substances. The difference is that no one can see a broken brain, and it’s not as easy to announce “my brain is injured” as “my arm is injured”. This album is an exploration and expression of the mental disease that is psychosis, and is a true journey from start to finish.

Everyone’s own reality is based upon perception, which is the result, amongst other things, of a series of connections in the brain. If those connections are misplaced, crossed or tangled, perception changes and thus the individual reality changes.

The Peach Tree’s attempt to express this is not only deep and meditative but energetic, frenetic, fun and pounding.

Track Name: Hard Drug Abuse
Lyrics:

"The surviving inhabitants are in a dreadful condition. They seem to be in a state identical to that curious 20th-Century Earth disease called Hard Drug Abuse."
Track Name: Psychosis (Episode One)
Lyrics:

It begins with a whisper of madness
All things conceived and following
Forming consciousness evades lips
To speak is heresy divine

Of intimacy never fathomed
Of beauty never explored
All things irrational and contorted
Become one in a broken eye

Perception skewed to insanity
Never a prying mind
Opened a box pandoral
Bent into shapes confined

Limitless expansion evermore
The downward spiral begins
Circling in the abdomen
Circling in the heights

Breathe higher, faster, impossible
Connections become the sky
Connections become unreachable
A signifying puppet warcry

Timely example of execution
Sorted into fragments
Pieces of a missing memory
Shifted into hyperspace

Bring the pain the hate confusion
Of a mind imprisoned willfuly
Of a star-crossed therapeutic mis-match
Of spewing verbal inanity
Track Name: Gurgle Weights
Lyrics:

You are walking down the street...

When suddenly a man appears before you...

You fail to notice the knife in his hand.
Track Name: Doctor Seuss Or A Sheep
Lyrics:

"Doctor Seuss, or a sheep?"
Track Name: Psychosis (Episode Two)
Lyrics:

Every day I wake up and I have to deal with psychosis
Straight, strung, hungover or whatever
I just don't feel right
I reach over clumsily and turn on the bedside light
Seeing things reaching over me
In the slowly fading night

Every day I wake up I wish I was dead
So I go back to sleep and rest my head
Until my duties I have to face,
Of every day life in this fucking rat race

Impose on me your every will
I can never seem to just sit still
I long for a place where I can chill
But sunbeams scorch the windowsill

And sunbeams scorch the windowsill

Sunbeams on the windowsill

So banish night, encompass me
I try to walk so steadily
While shit pours down on top of me
I wish I wish I wish I was free

I wish I wish I was free

I wish I wish I wish I was free
But sunbeams scorch the windowsill

Every day I wake up and I have to deal with psychosis

Psychosis

Psychosis

I wish I was free.
Track Name: All This Is Real (I Hope)
Lyrics:

The moon was so bright when I looked at the sky
I wondered why anyone would want to die

Leaves become brown and turned into dust
The rose quivered scarlet and triggered my lust

The moon ate a mushroom and all was surreal
I hope above hope that all this is real

I hope above hope that all this is real
I hope above hope that all this is real

All this is real
All this is real
All this is real
All this is real
All this is real

(I hope)

I hope above hope

I hope above hope that all this is real

(All this is real)
Track Name: Everybody Get Up And Fuckenndance (Cos This Is MDMA)
Lyrics:

Everybody get up and fuckenndance

...

And we build it up slowly
Like a rhythm machine
Move the beat to your body
Yea you know what I mean

Cos this is MDMA
Pulsing through the machine
Rising up like a spiral
In an incredible dream

Cos this is MDMA
Yea you know what I mean
This is MDMA
And we build it up slowly

This is MDMA
In an incredible dream
This is MDMA
This is MDMA

This is MDMA
Pulsing through the machine
This is MDMA
Yea you know what I mean

MDMA
MDMA
MDMA
MDMA

MD MD MD MD MD MD MD MD MD MD MD
This is MDMA
Track Name: Psychosis (Recovery)
Lyrics:

I'm feeling better now
But I want to taste it bad
I want to feel the fire
Erode me, take me take me higher

'Cos I want to have it all
But I'm feeling better, better now
Without the taste of angel's tears
Oh god I've drowned so many years

I want to have to taste it all
But my body's broken, bruised and in pain
I need to hold to have it all
My fucked up mind my drugged up brain

And I want to have it all
But I'm feeling better without
No scythe to cut me free from fear
Oh god I've downed so many beers

I want to taste to have it all
But my body's broken, rent apart
I need to hold it in my heart
I need to hold it in my heart

And I'm feeling better now
Better now
