about

Reflected is comprised of songs written during 1992 to 1994 just prior to the band dissolving. Years later the band revisited previously un-recorded material after a chance 2009 reunion. Recording began in December of 2011 then halted after drummer Jerry Bayton was diagnosed with Multiple-Myeloma Cancer in May 2012. Recording resumed as his health recovered and finally released January of 2014. Sales from all Symetrix downloads go toward the "Jerry Bayton Fund" to help pay for the enormous cost of treatment.

Track Name: Reflected
Is this the beginning
Or a means to an end
Try introspective views from the outside
I tell you my friend

For the pain that we harbor
And that which inflicts the pain
Strip all that does not serve you
and you will start walking again

Would you be satisfied with your picture of life
Realize life is too short just to waste time on what’s reflected

Think of the good times and think of the past
When all is said and done with the future
Tell me what’s in your hands

Time to pack up the pictures
Put them back on the shelf
With all the suffering and denial inside of yourself

Would you be satisfied with your picture of life
Realize life is too short just to waste time on whats reflected

Is this the beginning
Or a means to an end
Try introspective views from the outside
I tell you my friend

Would you be satisfied with your picture of life
Realize life is too short just to waste time on whats reflected
Track Name: Numb
I waited around for a lifetime
Waited around for the wingspan
To fly me away from here
I’m spinning my wheels without purpose
Tired of scratching the surface
Won’t you fly me away from here

I’m feeding myself with deception
Living without recollection
Won’t you fly me away from here

Tilt the glass up to your face
Forget about the meaning
If it fills you up too fast
You’re bound to lose the feeling
Oh and I feel
Oh and I feel
Oh and I feel ..numb

And I’m losing a race with the clock
A second I’ve wasted here sitting upon the fence
I put it upon my self whenever I have the chance
To suffer the consequence

Tilt the glass up to your face
Forget about the meaning
If it fills you up too fast
You’re bound to lose the feeling
Oh and I feel
Oh and I feel
Oh and I feel ..numb

I spinning my wheels without purpose
Tired of scratching the surface
Won’t you fly me away from here
And I’m losing a race with the clock
A second I’ve wasted here sitting upon the fence

Tilt the glass up to your face
Forget about the meaning
If it fills you up too fast
You’re bound to lose the feeling
Oh and I feel
Oh and I feel
Oh and I feel ..numb
Track Name: W.A.I.T.S.
These words I shall commit
From pen unto this slate
indulge me for a while

In a final desperate hour
I wrote this note to you
To relieve you from my mind

Dear friend of mine
Remember of a time
Of simple laughs and endless dreams
And you swallowed them with what you drank
Looking through an empty glass
But….

Who am I to say?
Its not as if that I can make you understand
For the memories that I save
Are pictures washed away
Like pictures left in sand
It was the best thing you ever had.

You should listen to yourself
Always living in the past
You need to get on with your life
But your selfishness and loneliness
Have led you to this inner strife and you'll
Thrive on that for many years
Willing to throw away your life
But....

Who am I to say?
Its not as if that I can make you understand
For the memories that I save
Are pictures washed away
Like pictures left in sand
It was the best thing you ever had.

Resolute, inner pride
(Using addictions for excuses)
(When you’re the only one who loses)
Absolute, perfect life

But who am I to say, its not as if that I, can make you understand
For the memories that I save, their pictures washed away
Like pictures left in sand
It was the best thing, I ever had
It was the best thing, you ever had
It was the best thing, we ever had
It was the best thing…..
