about

This album you're about to listen to is everything I am. Instead of writing for someone else. I took the time to write for myself. So what you hear, what you're reading; THAT is me. I was very on the fence about releasing this one because I knew that if i did, I would be an open book to anyone who cared to take the time to listen. There would be no secrets from my head.
With that being said, i hope if you do listen to this that you can relate. That you can feel. Thank you.

Chris Gonzalez - For doing amazing vocal work on "Fides" and kicking my ass in Smash 4.
Kristofer Kozlowski - For putting in work on "Caelum" 's chorus and also kicking my ass in Smash 4.
I really suck at Smash Bros.

Sleep deprivation has caused my emotions to skyrocket to the point of insanity. And i know that if i maintain this progress. I'll end up falling; into a nightmare. That i can't wake up from a constant delusion, i swear to god i despise that conclusion. But what am i supposed to say, it's been years upon years and i still fucking feel this way.
Fatigue... It flows through me. It leaks out through my flesh. Paralyzed in an unfocused state. If only the urge to rest...
If only the urge to rest could break free.
This blurred vision of time wouldn't mean so much to me. So much to me. I cannot go on. I cannot ignore this anymore. Please don't keep me up. Please don't keep me up.
I have reached a meridian. And it feels so stygian.
I'm not yet awake. At least not fully anyway. This silence drives me mad and I keep getting lost in my detraction. Heavy lidded, tunnel-vision. These inconclusive thoughts are my own worst demons. I just want to repose.
Please don't keep me up. Please don't keep me up.
Death lingers far too close; than i'd like to imagine.
Fatigue... It flows through me. It leaks out through my flesh. Paralyzed in an unfocused state. If only the urge to rest...
At this point in time...it feels like i'm living on the outside. When you can't even recognize what you see in the mirror, it's never been clearer. Oh, that what i see this very second is not who I wanna be. I'm not yet awake, at least; not fully anyway. . Heavy lidded, tunnel-vision. These inconclusive thoughts are my own worst demons. I just want to repose.
I have reached a meridian. And it feels so fucking stygian.
Track Name: Caelum Ft. Kris K.
A dreamer can't dream without purpose. We only keep those that we feel are necessary. They keep us moving even when we want to go back. Calloused feet are only signs of progress. Even when they hurt. We still move forward.
As we wonder...where our life has gone...has gone.
As we wonder where our life has gone. We always look to the past to help us. Figure out, where we'll go; where will we be? Cause through our struggles we've found understanding.
When the whole world will tell you no. Our meaning, our minds. Can carry on.
Is this where you wanna be?
As we wonder where our life has gone. We always look to the past to help us. Figure out, where we'll go; where will we be? Cause through our struggles we've found understanding.
Track Name: Spero
Is this trust or is this pain? A belief or a chain?
We have to learn so we can be convalescent. It itself is a lesson. If you want to achieve you must strive for morality.
Have you ever felt as low as the floor when you feel like you can't go on anymore? To roll over to see the ceiling, instead of the dreams that you've had since your youth. And you don't know what to do....neither do I cause i'm right here with you. A constant feeling of regret cause you can't even muster the strength to find your faith.
We desire. A tiny bit of optimism. To hold on to. To lead us through this. I speak for all of us. We'd rather lay in bed. We don't want to. Depend on you.
I'd rather feel confident on my own. I never said i'd lose my faith. I'll cross my fingers and abandon this cage.
This enclosure is a cadaver and all i want is to turn it to ashes. Yet at this rate i'll never succeed. Guess my independence wasn't worth my greed.
This hope i ask for is life of civility.
We desire. A tiny bit of optimism. To hold on to. To lead us through this. I speak for all of us. We'd rather lay in bed. We don't want to but i guess that we have to.
If you want to achieve you must strive for morality.
Track Name: Patiens
I can feel the weight; but i can't seem to make it go away. It feels like i'm watching sand form on an hourglass. Slowly drip and fade.
Only when you stop do you see things for how they truly are. I'm insecure and confused. Trying to find myself in the essence of bloom.
Most of the time my head is a thunderstorm. Constant lightning and rain make it difficult. A stream of whispers, and ocean of blare. I'm trying to understand. How to calm this uneasiness.
To make sure i live again.
Only when you stop do you see things for how they truly are. I'm insecure and confused. Trying to find myself in the essence of bloom.
Track Name: Navitas
Could you believe me, If i told you that life was full of vitality? All you need is to seek it, and i know that's easier said than done.
Lets get started then.
Through the veins that keep me breathing; and the scars that are surely reminding. Is something so divine. It hints at what we all seem to know. That our lives are a gift that we should treasure. Yet i can't seem to find this pleasure. Our lives are a gift that we should treasure. Even if we can't seem to find the pleasure.
No sound comes around as i scream. From my mouth. Temptations to change perceptions of me, are far too great to ignore. I'll stare at myself and be reminded constantly. That in the right key, i might open a door. To let in this fresh air. To soak into my pores.
I will spill my energy out. In torrents and streams, and keep on dreaming.
Our souls. It gives us emotion to be who we are. Without this we are shells. Uncaring. To that all around us. I know it feels like our candles are dim. That if we keep on burning our light will go thin. Just a bit more to go.

I always thought that life would be a lesson. I've come to learn it's nothing more than displeasure.
All i wanted was to be a reason. To give others hope but i can't even save myself. And how the fuck am I supposed to grow, when all I feel are chains; from indignation. I can't believe that life is a mystery. Cause at the end. It reeks of exuberant filth. Now what am I supposed to do. When all of the chances i've had have turned to rubble.
There is just one shadow in the darkness. We will dwindle like fading memories. To all of the delicate hours of loneliness. I will leave here in peace.
Endless struggles.
To all of the struggles i keep in my head. To all of the voices that want me dead. I leave you here to drag your nails through the dirt. You wont have my help, i'd rather die than beg. I say to life. "You've taken another" I once was strong but at the moment i'm weak.
There is just one shadow in the darkness. We will dwindle like fading memories. To all of the delicate hours of loneliness. I will leave here in peace.
Track Name: Solus
Seeing me...you'd never believe... that I...feel so lonely.
It's because i hide...behind my...facade...of a peace of mind.
And yet. You all believe me.
They say; that the quiet ones are always the worst. It's part of the reason i speak out. So no one will notice. I spend days upon days. Trying to disconnect the fragments i keep inside. To hide what i believe will destroy my life. And i make sure you never will see. What i envy. To be able to grin and mean it. To stop this illusion that i've become so petrous. I have reached out to all of you. ALL of you.
With that being said. How many of you answered?
And you wonder i stay inside. And you wonder why i hide my life. Cause i am fragile enough. The last thing i need is to pretend to feel tough. Cause when i fall and i will. i'll crawl back to my hole with the thought of failure. When i fall and i will. I'll crawl back to my hole with the thought of failure!
Each tear that escapes from my eyes. Adds to my collection of over-burdened nights. That i have been trying to escape from. Maybe. Maybe one day, i'll have enough so that i can sail away. From these despondent nights.
They say; that the quiet ones are the worst of them. But i don't have to repeat myself. To let you know where i stand. I've been stuck in an endless circle surrounding the concepts and processes of my mind. And it feels like it will never leave. So i'll let these whispers come take over me.
With that being said. How many of you answered?
Each tear that escapes from my eyes. Adds to my collection of over-burdened nights. That i have been trying to escape from. Maybe. Maybe one day, i'll have enough so that i can sail away. From these despondent nights.
Track Name: Fides Ft. Chris G.
Endless misdirection, that’s what my words are.
A forked tongue, spitting lies upon ashes; I once burned bright, I once wanted nothing more than to bring upon an endless flame. I’ll stand here and bury all of these memories, of happiness and hope and pray to god that you’ll wash away when the light clears.
And who am I to say that I wont waste away, until there’s nothing left of me to give. I carried you through the dark and now i’ll be left here.
I will make the blind see what they choose to forget.
I will make sure you know this, i’m sure that you’ll notice.
I carried you through the dark and now i’m a part of it.
I’ve spent way too many nights trying to figure out, how to neglect all emotions that come when you’ve shown up. I will recognize that no light can save me. Yet faith has only gotten me this far.
So i’ll keep spewing my venom but i will be wary of the poison I've chosen, cautious and noxious. I’ll watch the life leave your eyes when you realize that I've been slowly injecting a lethal dosage.
And who am I to say that i wont waste away. Slowly following the footsteps that I swore I would never acknowledge.
I’ve spent way too many nights trying to figure out, how to neglect all emotions that come when you’ve shown up. I will recognize that no light can save me. Yet faith has only gotten me this far.
So at the end of the day when all has wasted away, I’ll look down and say. “You brought yourself here, and I will bury you.” Yet the mirror has never looked so fucking luxurious.
Track Name: Veritatum
Would you believe me if i told you...that this was not the end. Not the end.
We are all sitting waves. Pushing, pulling against nature's days.
We are all sitting waves. Pushing, pulling against nature's own daze.
And if i told you that this was not the end. Would you believe me?
Now we all may not be perfect, but we try...we try...to make the best of it.
As time goes on we learn. That life can be so cruel. To all of us. In one way or another. We try to make our lives better than they were yesterday. Oh yesterday! Even if we feel that darkness is coming like a blanket we cannot escape. Our aspirations will lead us out of obscurity.
Life can be flourescent if you only choose to glance. All we need is one time to understand our ambitions. They can lead us to shelter.
When the sunlight fades we seek compassion...
Would you believe me if i told you...
This is not the end...
Track Name: Tempus Vita
Going through these old notebooks. The memories I've had, the memories i hide. The words I've written and the things I've seen. I swear it feels like a lifetime to me. To think on the dreams. The hopes, the realities. To know that only years have past. My mind encumbers that of an elder.
Life is a fickle friend and equally a foe. It can bring memories or lead us to woe.
I've spent way too much time. Protecting others with no concern for myself. Making other people ecstatic for days, yet I've got no love for myself. And it feels like i'm wasting time.
Oh! I feel I've been repeating myself. It must get annoying to hear the same bullshit.
This hourglass is my comfort. Where sand keeps falling on my household...and all i can do is stare at the top, and PRAY that it can be stopped.
So i can live with the thought of peace that my time wont run out. That i wont drown.
It seems like the end is coming fairly soon, as each grain drops and i get closer to you.
The words I've written and the things I've seen. I swear it feels like a lifetime to me. To think on the hopes and dreams and eventually see that it's not my reality.
This hourglass is my comfort. Where sand keeps falling on my household...and all i can do is stare at the top, and PRAY that it can be stopped.
I've spent way too much time. Protecting others with no concern for myself. Making other people ecstatic for days.
And it feels like i'm wasting...
