about

Bass, Acoustic, Effects, Drums.

This is an album that I had a lot of fun recording. I learned a lot about myself through the lyrical process and a lot about my pedal board as well. I hope listeners all around can enjoy it.

Track Name: Waiting For A Sunrise
In the darkness we look to the sky
and watch the stars fall on to you and I
and I thought I'd try, to tell you

Maybe I'm not over it
Certain things were left unsaid
and I just can't relax
With your hand in mine under the moonlight

(waiting for a sunrise)

So maybe I'm not used to this
Ending fights with a last kiss
and not able to go back
but please take it back

I'm so pathetic around you

In the darkness I look to the sky
and watch the stars fall and crash into my life

like stars we shine through the darkest times

Maybe I deserve all this
Angry lines that end speechless
but I just want to talk back
Take it or leave it I'm not who I used to be

(waiting for a sunrise)

So maybe I am over it
Make believe she's not worth it
and I'm just hit or miss

Lies are meant for the less fortunate.
and my luck's run out.
Only in darkness were we perfect.
Track Name: The Results Are In!
I'll lay here drunk and debate the difference between love and lust.
It's in my blood to beat myself up.
I'm stuck up, I know this.
No faults here, we’re just kids
Acting as adults
And these are the results

(I can't sleep)
Focusing on the wrong things
(Wasted time)
Writing out these lies to sing
(Blame myself)
Never good enough
(Wasted days)
The results are in… we are turning the page

But all things work themselves out regardless of who you are.
I hope I can remain the same and not become a dying star
That’s living large, going far out of my way to ruin my life.

So I have a request for you (Can you feel the vibe?)
Maybe it’s not, Maybe it’s right for now but I have to shut off (Shut down)
But before I do I thought I should shout to you what I really want
A different point of view of my life

Until then I'll lay here drunk and debate the difference between love and lust.
It's in my blood to beat myself up.
Why? Who cares…

It takes a lot out of person to know someone well enough to care.
Once you’re noticed as being caring, you now have the opportunity to turn you back.
I’d rather have a knife in my back, that way you aren’t alone.

So I have a request for you (Can you feel the vibe?)
Maybe it’s not, Maybe it’s right for now but I have to shut off
But before I do I thought I should shout to you what I really want
A different point of view of my life or something worth fighting for
Track Name: Wasted Days
What happened to the things that we said?
If this is what you wanted, you led me the right direction.
Straight passed perfection, falling through the glass
Passive aggression is all that you have.

But don't you think for a second that you had me fooled. Beyond the facts and lack of explanations to your past, I always had the last laugh. You told me you never felt love like this, and here we are no longer missed by each other, or kissing one another it was all just a mind fuck.

Reach Out
Fall Down
Stay Down

Because once you fall, you fall hard, and can't find your way back to the start..

We end up going our separate ways, no closure, no arguments, no gratification, just wasted days
If one day you realize this was the biggest mistake you've made this year.
Don't tell me, because I was over it two weeks before I moved back down here.

Don't act surprised when I'm not tore up over this.
This was your plan from the start and I noticed.

(Breathe slowly)
(Cave early)
Track Name: Home
And your breath waits for the end of this.
I'm not safe locked away in this debate.

Break this, onstage, today, too late
Too late

So I'll wait and have false day dreams about how I'm in the wrong
Writing down lies and making you out to be the bad guy for the sake of this song
Bottles upon bottles of wine just to buy back the time of my fragile mind
Oh I'm so kind, right? That's what they all come to expect. Accept. I'm a reject.

I just want to go back home
To my room where I drink alone
The morning comes and the moon roams
Bringing back this day to day binge of sin that keeps me from my impulse.

Break this, onstage, today, too late
Too late

And she's not there, the bottle always seems to glow.
And it's not fair, but that's just how the story goes..
Track Name: You Will Never Listen To This
I’m not perfect, you’re not worth it. We already have relation.
Using the right words, using the wrong slurs, I must have trouble with the placement.
From all the things I hide, to all the times I’ve tried, I can’t seem to change.
Troubled relationships to all the friends I’ve missed, you will never listen to this.

But at least I tried again

From what you want to say and all that has been said are you familiar with the pattern.
The words we bend and the worlds we craft all find a way to shatter.
Whether it’s in our palms or if it’s miles away you can’t ever retract them.
So what’s the point to creating a scene just to leave?

How do you know who you really are when you're nothing?

If this is what you want and I have no say, great! I never had one anyways.
I’d rather keep my dreams on my swollen heart and find another ribcage.
Tell me what you think and I will think on it and try to narrow my involvement.
Resolve this and good luck!

All the things I hide
All the times I tried
You will never listen to this

Dreams are scarce
Dreams are scarce, and no one cares.

Pale face white, Blind eyes black, Red moonlight

This is not the end of me, I will find another way.

All the things I hide
All the times I tried
You will never listen to this

In the darkness we look to the sky.
