Opiate for the Masses
Goodbye EP (2002)

Opiate For The Masses formed in 1999, and the name was derived from a concept that
philosopher Karl Marx used to describe organized religion. Guitarist and songwriter
Jim Kaufman was in a band called Projex when he approached vocalist Ron Underwood
of 5 on 1 about forming a new band. The two young men had actually attended the
same performing arts school.

Apologies, but I haven't worked out the bridge yet. I'll try my best :) You're welcome
