about

"I'm loving this, first track had a very Radiohead feel to it. Sharing it with my friends, you guys are going places. "

"Awesome music guys. The singer is great, there's a lot of skill there, same with the guitars. I know music people like music, so, an album I was reminded of while listening to this was The Antler's "Hospice"."

"Hope you guys take this somewhere, it's definitely worth listening to. "

"If Elliott Smith were a member of Pink Floyd, I imagine it would sound something like this."

"Absolutely beautiful stuff, I could listen to this for hours. Bought it for the $2 and I'll be spreading it around to my friends, as well as liked the FB page. "

Track Name: Breathe & Push
What's the best way for me to show I'm here?

Should I kick you, dear?

What's the best way for me to know I'm fair?

Should I eat my share?

Would you even care?

-----

Dare I come outside.

Where noise and lights collide.
Track Name: Fog
Come meet me inside this fog,
It’s calm here shrouded in this shawl,
I couldn’t wait for you to arrive,
I’ve been so alone in my mind.

Come meet me inside this fog,
Together we can get lost,
Ignorance is bliss that’s for sure,
No prying eyes on the rich or poor.

But one day we will find,
The sunlight peeping outside,
Take me outside,
Take me outside.
Track Name: Jimmy Graves
A shadow comes for me to last receive,
My soul, my life he wagers he’ll relieve,
A common conflict,
The mortal culprit.

Dear Sir Death, every breath,
I keep is mine.

He beckons by the deadbolt with time to bide
Set beside, a portal lined three feet wide

The reaper keeps the stupid of lucid souls.
Who dare to seek, what things left are best unknown.

The best advice you’ll heed,
It’s best to keep that door closed.

The reaper heaves, the doorframe it creaks and moans,
His disease has harbored in all your bones

The best advice you’ll heed
It’s best to keep that door closed.
Track Name: Somewhere Nowhere
I can’t be consoled.
I can’t be convinced.
I hold on hopeful.
It’s hard to evince.
I see the lights bleed.
I feel the waves breathe.
I can’t be consoled.
I can’t be relieved.

So I have gone, gone down.
So I have gone, gone down.

Down, into the sea.
There’s no dawn.

Down, into the sea.
There’s no dawn.

Down, into the sea.
There’s no dawn.
Track Name: Waiting for the World
Tell me my friend,
Was it make-pretend?
Did you learn, love, and die,
With a code and a side.
Or did you lose your head,
Bury it in bed,
Save it for another day,
When the world was less outré?
Did you seek any of your ends?
Did you sleep, waiting for the world to consent?

Tell me my friend,
Was it make-pretend?
Did you mean every word that you wrote on this
earth?

Or did you choose to read
Feed your head with seeds,
Read the theory and the type,
Of things you'd be just like
Did you seek any of your own ends?
Did you sleep, waiting for the world to repent?
Track Name: Give Me Light
Taken for a long and cold night through my head,
Soon I'll be below you, ran through to hide again,
Please give me a rest!
Please give me a warm light!
The sunlight.
I've heard about.
It evades my sight.

Toil through the night to see if I'd meet the day,
Never knew the pace would keep me so far away,
Shine on my pale face!
Shine! Give me a golden ray!
The time of day.
I'm longing for.
But couldn't say...

Give me a warm feel,
I've yet to steal.
I'll be around!
To see you go down down down down down.
