Prozac Is The Dam & I Am The Dynamite

“THIS SUMMER WAS WEIRD” -Justin Hoenke

Six months after the release of the album Either Way I’m Fine”, the musical project known as Abigail Foster’s Photosynthesis Machine is back with another album titled “Prozac Is The Dam And I Am The Dynamite”. Quickly written and recorded in the Summer of 2017, this eight song album is a trip through Justin Hoenke’s three months of removing Prozac from his body and his adjustment to the world.

“After being on Prozac for eight years, I decided that I no longer wanted to live in a muted state. Everything felt stagnant. I could easily exist on Prozac, but I felt like since this was my one chance at life that I wanted to do it properly. I wanted to feel things, both the good and the bad, again”

The journey on “Prozac Is The Dam And I Am The Dynamite” is raw and honest. “These songs had to be written and recorded. They could not sit around. If I didn’t capture the songs in the moment, the things I was feeling and going through during this process would not be honest. I wanted the album to be honest. I felt like a confused mess for most of this album, and that came out in the songs. Prozac Is The Dam refers to the medicine holding back creativity and true feelings. I Am The Dynamite because I was the only thing that could change the course I was set on. I had to make a decision to sail away from the Prozac and onto different things. I had to steer my own ship towards what I thought was honest.”

Fans of raw, honest, and homemade pop rock will appreciate this album. The album zig zags through a number of sounds and ideas. “The first half of the album is rough. I would totally understand if someone listening to it just couldn’t make it can make it through the first five tracks. But if you can, I think it makes the second half of the album even better. You’ve gotta go through the shit to get to sunshine.”

Prozac Is The Dam And I Am The Dynamite will be available on October 24 2017 through Arbacarba Records. The album will sell for $7 through the Abigail Foster’s Photosynthesis Bandcamp page

This album was recorded inside and outside on the grounds of Fidelia Hall in Titusville, PA. All songs and music written, produced, and recorded by Justin Hoenke.

Imperfect
So let me be
I just wanna live
And be homely
Don’t need nuthin’
No I don’t need a thing
Let’s pack it up
And get back to things
Where it’s cold
You try to stay warm
You drink tea
And sing songs
Oh, woah it’s coming back again
Air, I don’t care anymore
‘Bout the snakes and the bears, anymore
Don’t you dare, compare
And beware of my sister golden hair
Air, I don’t care anymore
‘Bout the waves and the sand, anymore
Don’t you dare, beware
And take care of my sister golden hair
Air, I don’t care anymore
‘Bout the way that I am, anymore
Don’t you dare, compare
And beware of sister golden hair.
I’ve been waiting for this
Nothing will come near me now
And the thought of something new
Deep inside this thought is true
I wonder how I’ll get to you
I’ve been waiting for this
Nothing will get in my way
All the things that you can do
Everything I know is true
I wonder what will happen too
Saturday night at a sports bar
With some tropical band
Sunday you’ve got your head up in your hands
A long time ago we were friends
But now it could never be
And when I think of this it makes me sick
Go go back to the ones you loved in 1998
Fall fall back with your high school friends
Just to fill up your lonely days
A long time ago we were friends
But now it could never be
And when I think of this it makes me sick
Saturday night at some dumb bar
With your stupid cover band
What the hell are you doing to me man?
A long time ago we were friends
But now it could never be
And when I think of this it makes me sick
I packed up my bags and headed east
I saw such beauty in front of me
It shimmered, it sparkled all around
But soon it all gave way to muted sound
I say hey would you listen please?
I’m waiting here on bended knee
I think that I was wrong in my discovery
You see, I’m so lonely
Even though it isn’t cold
Hey would you look into my soul?
‘Cause I think it’s empty
Hey hey what I need now is family
I need a stable net hangin’ round me
I don’t want the flash and any fame
I wanna live and die just by my name
I say hey would you listen please?
I’m waiting here on bended knee
I think that I was wrong in my discovery
You see, I’m so lonely
Even though it isn’t cold
Hey would you look into my soul?
‘Cause I think it’s empty
Banshee!
What you doing to me?
I’ve been lost and out on the sea
This time I’ve nothing to give
Banshee!
Where do you wanna live?
It’s been so long
Since you’ve came through
It’s been so long
I don’t know what to do
All my dying days come forth
This is not what it’s worth
This is only a test
I’ll do my best
Banshee!
What you doing to me?
I’ve been lost and out on the sea
This time I’ve nothing to give
Banshee!
Where do you wanna live?
It’s been so long
One year and a day
It’s been so long
I’ve got nothing to say
All my dying days come forth
This is not what it’s worth
This is only a test
I’ll do my best
This time I know I’m right for this
Anyways, I have some questions
What is it you want that comes from me?
This time I will be so strong
And I’ll put all of this in song
Anything you want it comes from me
Watching and waiting
I am anticipating
Don’t blame me for this
Cause I’ve got nothing to give
Don’t blame me for this
Cause I’ve got nothing to give you anymore
Can you define the word friend for me?
What does it mean to you?
Without a voice, I’m let down again
Now is this all that you do?
I had faith in you my friend
Up until the very end
Oh, the silence says
I can’t rely on anyone
I had faith in you my friend
Up until the very end
Oh, the silence says
I can’t rely on anyone
Can’t sleep
Think about the window
Don’t know
Which way I’m gonna go
All these
Things that live in my head
Don’t know where or when
These are
The things that I’ve been thinking
All this
Time I’ve spent predicting
I can’t
See the future clear
So anyways
I’m saving some grace
in this small machine
