Subconscious is a concept album about advertising and our brains. All songs flow into each other and our meant to be listened to in one sitting, similar to watching a TV episode or movie. Sit back, turn it up, close your eyes, relax, and listen to the voices in your head.

Ponny Kosmas began writing a song a month as a solo project in 2011. The goal was to create 12 songs that he would enjoy listening to and could give to friends as a present at the end of the year. A couple months and a couple songs later, he came up with the name Mars Water, combining his interests and fears in both astronomy and the ocean. ... more

Track Name: Subconscious Pt 1 & 2
I listen to the voices in my head
When I’m bored of hearing you speak
They tell me the choices I should make
And why I’m seeing the strange things
I see

Tell me a reason I should care
Its kind of a funny thing to see
I might be crazy but at least I’m not
Like the rest of the society
I see
Track Name: Hollywood's Not Bad
Don’t tell me where to go
Don’t tell me who to know

I want my life to be my own

Don’t tell me what to wear
Don’t tell me how to care

I want my life to be my own

I kind of hate these fads
Hollywood’s Not Bad, I’d rather be somewhere I’m sad
Track Name: Can't You See?
It’s the same thing everyday
And everyday you’re not okay
Can’t you just be happy?
Can’t you just see?

Don’t listen to those billboards there
You’ve got yourself some fine hair
Can’t you just be happy?
Can’t you just see?

Your life is beautiful to me, can’t you see?
Track Name: Mad/Men
What happens to your mind after you
Take it all
Do you lose control or do you
Gain it all

Well it might be either or
It might be you open a door

To the other side of your perception
Your a mad man with no direction

Oh what does it take to be real
Track Name: Brainwashed
Have you lost your mind?
Show some peace be kind

Have you lost your mind?
Turn it off you’ll be fine

Losing control again
To the voices in your head

There goes your brain
Washed down by ads
There goes your brain
Track Name: Vacation
Ooo have you been
To the gold sand of the east

Ooo have you been
To the sun soaked middle east

Golden and fine
Golden and fine

Neither have I
I think it’s time
Track Name: Unconscious
I hate my life
I wanna die
Where is my mind?
They took what’s mine

Where is my mind?
They took what’s mine
I need to find
My brain and mind

There I go again, I’m crying
I can’t help myself, I’m dying

I can’t live without my brain
Without my brain I’ll go insane
Track Name: Save/Spend

Here comes the cheaper, prices in time
For all the skreepers, saving a dime
Tis to the season, season of kind
Or to the season, of spending your dime

Try to be caring, when giving a gift
It’s hard to be merry, when you’re getting jipped

Oh, the holidays
Oh, the holi-days

They say it’s cheaper
But really it’s just right



I don’t want
What’s usually shown to me
But I’ll tell you where I’d spend my money

I’d pay for you to always be there
Track Name: Message in the Sky
Money can’t buy you a friend
Well maybe but just a pretend

You’re not pretend you’re real
I love you but it’s concealed

If I had the money I’d try
To write you a message in the sky

Maybe you’d notice me there
Floating above in the air
