about

I know i had made a statement on youtube saying my previous album would be the last with screams but after some deliberation and thinking, not to mention getting a little beat down by some close friends that i would continue on and perfect and hone my craft. So with that being said, I am here to provide you with music until the day i pass, or can no longer continue to play. This album is the best of the best of my current and previous works. Some of you will notice that this album contains music from my past bands and it ALSO contains brand new songs i wrote just for this occasion.
I hope that you all enjoy this because a lot of hard work went into it in order to get it sounding proper and appealing. I thank you all for your patience and support, and to those who are new to finding my music, WELCOME!

Track Name: Stand:Consumed
Slipping away from the face of the earth!
Reaching off of a cliff.
To fall against the floor.
So do i stand and rejoice?
Or keep my eyes shut.
Through these eyelids of pain, i am forever judged.

How do you pull that image of something that you're not?
I laid my hand out for you! Not knowing what you stood for.
So do i...stand tall?

Do you see this price of beauty.
How much its consumed your life!
You judge me, and you fail.
Look at yourself in the mirror.
Why do i even try.
I should have known you'd be a waste of my time.
A waste of my time.
So do i stand tall?
Or keep these eyes closed?
So what is left for me, in this future coming.
You've dragged yourself to misery, and now you want me there.
Nothings left for me, i'll take a step forward.
I'll break away.
I'll stand tall.
Against EVERYONE!

So remember who i am, someone who's fighting against all odds.
I'll stand tall as i look away.
For a reason to fight.
For a reason to live.

I'll carry on.
But you...will never be okay.

So what is left for me, in this future coming.
You've dragged yourself to misery, and now you want me there.
No matter how many people you fool with that pretty face,
You're still the ugly cancer i remember.
So i'll tell you once.
Step the fuck away.

Idle hands keep the devil beside you.
So what do you do, when he's breathing on you.

I will kneel and pray and i'll break away, for a reason to fight.
For a reason to live.

So remember who i am, someone who's fighting against all odds.
I'll stand tall as i look away.
For a reason to fight.
For a reason to live.

So now the only thing you have left to guide you,
are the flames that i've placed deep inside of you.
Track Name: Remembrance
The tears you've shed are just a reminder!

There is faith in failure.
Appreciation in the lost causes, that we call mistakes.
Don't look to the influences, that cause you stress and pain!
There is more to representation, than these blood shot eyes.
Cold and mishapen are the only side effecrs from the mistakes we make.

There is faith in failure, don't look to the influences;
that cause the tears you shed.
So look to the sky and climb the mountaintops.
And remind yourself of who you truly are.

Words that fall upon helpless ears!

Steps that take over the flames you've burned, a destructive memory;
to remind you of the pain you've caused.
The tears you've shed are just a reminder.
The tears you've shed are only a reminder.

There is faith in failure, don't look to the influences;
that cause the tears you shed.
So look to the sky and climb the mountaintops.
And remind yourself of who you truly are.

For you are the prophet, to teach others; what can be seen through blind eyes.

For you are the prophet, to teach others!

There is faith in failure, don't look to the influences;
that cause the tears you shed.
So look to the sky and climb the mountaintops.
And remind yourself of who you truly are.

There is faith in failure, don't look to the influences;
(For you are the prophet, to teach others; what can be seen through blind eyes.)
that cause the tears you shed.
So look to the sky and climb the mountaintops.
(For you are the prophet, to teach others; what can be seen through blind eyes.)
And remind yourself of who you truly are.
Track Name: First Breath
So why, do i feel trapped?
I'm stuck in this closed circle of my own
common misconception.
As you keep your secrets, away from me.
This loophole of repitivity, continues to blind; continues to hold me.
And there's no way out, no matter how hard...I Try.

Give me a reason to keep on trying!
Portray a reason to hold my dreams close.

And I hope you'll remember my name.
When you ask for help.

While you drag yourself day to day.
This darkness that continues to crawl upon me.
It cannot hold me forever.
Cause we were born staring the sun with our first breath.
Though i try my hardest and though you'll remind me,
Of what i strive to push away from.
I'll be stuck in this glass house.
Where i pray the stones i throw will set me free.

This glass house, wont hold me forever.
One step at a time.
One breath every second.
These dreams will set me free.

I feel trapped and this loophole confides MY HOPES.
My dreams provide me, with the strength i need, the courage i pray;
to leave this past behind...To breath once again.
Don't ever say there is never a way.
Don't ever say you can never push forward.
When there is proof that the world is nothing more;
than what we control.

And I hope you'll remember my name.
When you ask for help.
Cause i will tell you what i know,
so you can break free.

While you drag yourself day to day.
This darkness that continues to crawl upon me.
It cannot hold me forever.
Cause we were born staring the sun with our first breath.
Though i try my hardest and though you'll remind me,
Of what i strive to push away from.
I'll be stuck in this glass house.
Where i pray the stones i throw will set me free.
Track Name: See The Unforseen
Take a day
Hold your breath
Before your lungs collapse.

And do you feel the weight of the sea?
Crashing down on your chest!

Take a second to reach for the air above!
Take a second to remember what you held dear.

So you can close your eyes and feel the wind on your face.

When you feel like there's no where to go; close your eyes take a dive but continue to swim.
It's a fight for your life and your memories falter.
Just close your eyes and watch your visions fade.

So this grave that you've dug has caused nothing but pain.
You beg for remorse and nothing shows, the best thing to do is to fall apart.
The sand under your feet, and the waves are crashing forward.
And you're breathing.
Your breathing.

And just fight for your worth, fight for your worth.

Well you're wrong!
There is much more to see, for nothing is set in stone.
Can you hear them calling your name?
This piercing sound is bittersweet.
So confide yourself in this dessert.
It can protect you from any emotion.
But don't stray.
For the quicksand is rising.

When you feel like there's no where to go; close your eyes take a dive but continue to swim.
It's a fight for your life and your memories falter.
Just close your eyes and watch your visions fade.

So this grave that you've dug has caused nothing but pain.
You beg for remorse and nothing shows, the best thing to do is to fall apart.
The sand under your feet, and the waves are crashing forward.
And you're breathing.
Your breathing.

Fight for your worth.

In the middle of the night when all is lost.
Close your eyes and take a chance.
For the silence can reach you the silence can break you.
And the voices will scream when the time is right.
Track Name: An Anchor, A Weight
So this will be a memory!
When no one else will listen, i'll still stand by you.
I've been your anchor, your weight!
We've been through thick and thin; but the choices you make define who you will be!

You turn your back on me!
You're just like everyone!
How did i stand up for you?
You're just as two faced.
yet i still stand here with my head held high.
Holding close what i love, just to prove you wrong!

So this will be a memory!
Of a past thats' been gone and a future to see.
And i hope that you know, that i've been here for you.
With my arms held out, just to pull you through.

so here's a choice, "Go show your voice"
Let it be known we're here to stay.
We're not these snakes who play those games.
We're here to pick you up!

But how could you take a look at me and say "You weren't there when you needed to be"
I've done nothing wrong and i'm still here for you!
Isn't that enough or are you selfish too?
Cause after all of this time, havn't i proved you wrong?
I'm becoming exactly what i asked for.
I wont break my walls, just for you.
When i was the one who you could turn to.

Yet you turn your back!
You're just like everyone...
How did i stand up for you.
Just go fuck yourself.

Yet i still stand here, with my head held high.
Holding close what i love.
Just to prove you wrong.


So this will be a memory!
Of a past thats' been gone and a future to see.
And i hope that you know, that i've been here for you.
With my arms held out, just to pull you through.
Track Name: The World Around You
This misery you know so well, has got you wrapped up in it's spell!
Let down the walls that carry you, let down the walls to let love through.
You're only keeping yourself down.
Don't let this spell keep holding on!

The world around you is moving on!
Don't let this spell keep holding on!

So be strong and hold on, the wind will carry you through.
From the start till the end, this is your life to defend.
so be strong and hold on, till you cant hang on!
Just keep your head heald high, there's so much left in your life.

I know that dark times bury you.

Under sheets of broken dreams.
Yet broken dreams, they cant compare.
To the love you'll find in those who care.
To those who love, those who adore.
They're everywhere just open the door.
No need to hide, no need to cry.
Don't close your eyes, i'm by your side!

So be strong and hold on, the wind will carry you through.
From the start till the end, this is your life to defend.
so be strong and hold on, till you cant hang on!
Just keep your head heald high, there's so much left in your life.

Cause we all fall down.
We all fall down.
If we are all alone, then we're in this together!

So be strong and hold on, the wind will carry you through.
From the start till the end, this is your life to defend.
so be strong and hold on, till you cant hang on!
Just keep your head heald high, there's so much left in your life.
Track Name: Breathe (Ft. Kris Sifre)
This air is a bridge!
Which connects the mind and body.
It's scattered, it's scattered.
My mind it races.
Once again we are reminded that waking up is not ensured.
We must live with the thought of there no being tomorrow.

Until my last breath.
Push it out of my chest.

And i know that at a days end, there is nothing remaining.
But the air that i take in.
I know that there is more than this.
But my lungs wont let me breathe.
Let me breathe.

Hold it tight, hold it tight.
Never let it go.
If you don't want it.
It'll be gone before you know.
Forget the problems we face.
We can be in a better space.
I'm prepared to do this, to make it real.
To tell you exactly how i feel.
I fear that i will have to live without.
The only thing that i cared about.

That i cared about.

And i know that at a days end, there is nothing remaining.
But the air that i take in.
I know that there is more than this.
But my lungs wont let me breathe.
Let me breathe.

I know that i was wrong.
But i've been deluded for far too long.

But i spoke the truth and never lied.
Still i never should have tried.

I know that i was wrong, but i've been deluded for far too long!

This air is a bridge!

Once again we are reminded that waking up is not ensured.
We must live with the thought of there no being tomorrow.
Track Name: A War of Words
I swear i said that i would never get out of here, but i lied.
Cause i'll make my own way.

I'll take a path that leads me home; one that can leave everything behind.
What can i say?

I'm only made this way, i have a closed, sheltered heart...
Full of infection from outside.

There is no past.

And in the end i'll remember who i am.
And in the end, i will show you who i can be.
A moments thoughts could break, who we are inside.
The truth and lies revealed all the hopes we hide.

So we live for our past.
So we live for our future.

I'm only as strong as my weakest link.
So why are you here?

There is no future...

And in the end i'll remember who i am.
And in the end, i will show you who i can be.
A moments thoughts could break, who we are inside.
The truth and lies revealed all the hopes we hide.

So how can i feel?
when i know, you're the one who drowns me.
Am i the only one?

Who can stand up, when i'm knocked down.

And with you, oh with you; i'm crawling...begging.
Track Name: Somnio
We always sleep awake
No thoughts to remember
When the silence breaks
We try not to surrender
Everything keeps falling down
Yet we still stand tall

Dreams are not for the hopeless
They are for those who continue to breathe

How do we find our way
stuck in our repeating fears
Remembering what we've lost
trying not to let go
Trying so hard to forget
How do we find our way?
When we're all just lost.

Why can't i push this out?
Why can't i become real?
Hanging by my strings
I want to be the puppeteer

For far too long we've needed change
but i dont know where to begin
We all deserve so much more
Yet life is leaving in the wind
Can we be strong and challenge ourselves
Or will we repeat history
Lets all take a leap of faith
And step out of misery

OF MISERY

Just continue to breathe!

Endless back and forth
Circles upon circles
We try and try to live
but our feet are too deep
Crawling and digging away
At what makes us go insane
We all dream awake
Yet i feel so deranged

So fucking deranged...

Time is always moving
Life is constantly overlooked

The shadows leave our lives
And we are once again free

For far too long we've needed change
but i dont know where to begin
We all deserve so much more
Yet life is leaving in the wind
Can we be strong and challenge ourselves
Or will we repeat history
Lets all take a leap of faith
And step out of misery
Track Name: Inner Me
I am ME
I am a disease!
A curse like no other.
Can you save what you cannot see?
How can you live if you cannot breathe?
A reason deep inside, that i can't seem to find.

Cause i have a reason to make it be!
Fear shall not become me!
For i am a walker.
AN ENTITY.

Up here i can see you breathe, live like i understand;
Feel what you feel, all i want is to be...
Where you are.
To define what i am.
You and i are the same, we are alike.
In each and every way.
Our roots lie in this earth.
And we are the same.
We are the same.

So when you look to the sky can you feel me?
can you hear my voice?
I am reason i am hope!
Don't let failures become you.
We are all trees, with roots exposed.

You will not take me...
I am the end...

The enemy has always been the inner me...

You will not take me, cause i am the end.

My roots have been exposed.
So don't cut me down, cause i...i still need to grow.

Up here i can see you breathe, live like i understand;
Feel what you feel, all i want is to be...
Where you are.
To define what i am.
You and i are the same, we are alike.
In each and every way.
Our roots lie in this earth.
And we are the same.
We are the same.

I am me, i am a disease.
So be prepared for what you cannot see.
