The Ride Into The Future Continues...
     Welcome to a journey into the future with The Norris Brothers Band across America's historic Route 66, where we've finally figured out how to live in harmony with each other and Mother Earth. The journey begins with a nostalgic "Ride On Route 66", then lands us in the future with  "Route 66 Is Alive Again!" On this second track, we've made it to a future with a booming Green-energy-based economy, electric Harleys and a high speed maglev train that brought Route 66 back to life! With the release of the third single "Ease The Disease", we discovered the cause and cure for disease. On the latest release, "The Owners", the plot thickens, and we discover the real enemy that has kept us separated, to prevent us from reaching our true potential. The Route 66 album will continue with signature Norris Brothers feel-good tunes, and will be released one song at a time as the ride and the stories unfold, with a full album release at the end of the journey. Join us.
Take The Ride!

Ease The Disease (Stop The C.T.D.) [Compulsive Thought Disorder]
Words and Music by Mitch Norris

I recall the first time
that I really watched my thoughts
I saw who I thought I was
saw who I was not
sitting cross-legged on the ground
I watched them all float by
and somewhere in that endless stream
I opened up my eye

and I realized
the thoughts I had weren't me
they just took all my attention
and my time and energy
I had to try to shut it down
I had to be free
I had to end the addiction
had to stop the C.T.D.
like this

inhale
watch your breath
if a thought floats by just let it go
exhale
watch your breath
come back to your breath
inhale
watch your breath
let the thoughts go by
exhale
watch your breath
just a little break is all it takes
inhale
watch your breath
you are not your thoughts
exhale
watch you breath
you are the observer
inhale
watch your breath
just breathe
exhale
watch your breath
ease the disease

not only were my thoughts not me
most weren't even mine
just a bunch of bad ideas
I'd collected over time
worries 'bout the future
and guilt about the past
I had to find my way back home
to here and now at last
a virus in your system
the thought loop never ends
it runs over and over
and over again
it's depression and anxiety
and every disease
gotta to end the addiction
gotta to stop the C.T.D.
do it with me

inhale
watch your breath
if a thought floats by just let it go
exhale
watch your breath
come back to your breath
inhale
watch your breath
let the thoughts go by
exhale
watch your breath
just a little break is all it takes
inhale
watch your breath
you are not your thoughts
exhale
watch you breath
you are the observer
inhale
watch your breath
just breathe
exhale
watch your breath
ease the disease

after I stopped my thoughts
I finally understood
they're the root of all evil
the potential for all good
every little thought we keep
creates reality
we're free to choose the thoughts we think
after the C.T.D.
we're free to choose the life we live
after the C.T.D.
ease the disease

I recall the first time
that I really watched my thoughts
I saw who I thought I was
saw who I was not

C.T.D.

Compulsive Thought Disorder, in your very-near future, will become the most commonly diagnosed disease, and the main underlying factor in most other diseases. Symptoms include, the inability to stop your thoughts, the inability to choose what you think, the belief that you are what you think, and anxiety and depression. Almost all humans were afflicted with C.T.D. to some degree.
