about

The music on the most recent release "Half Life" could be considered by some as Art Rock. Others may call it simply Alternative while others may hear it as Math Rock or Indie Rock. I guess one could say it's all of those things making for an unusual and interesting musical soundscape.

Track Name: Half Life
What type of soul would do something like this?
What kind of mind would be so untamed?
Create a life of hatred and misery
Start a chain which unchecked, never ending
Always pain

Live a life of anguish and fear
In the presence of ones you hold dear
Spilt the wine, now builds the rage
Prepare for the onslaught, not again

Shut down your brain, protect your soul
Disappear, to where they can't follow
Let someone else, take up this pain
Wake up all bloodied, and bruised again.

Blow by blow, it's taking you
down
Hit by hit, you flail
apart
Bone on bone, it ruptures your
soul
Tear and split, your only
control
"Yes I am alive
To take in the pain
I've come as salvation
To shelter you from the shame
Yes I'm taking control
While you sleep in our mind
I'll keep the anger
Away from your life"

"Now I've come to the end
Of my visit with pain
I will return
When the rage comes again
I'll make you forget
All the trauma and fear
Yes we'll live together
In this half life we share"

Hide the fear, hide the fear, hide the fear
Hide the fear, hide the fear, hide the fear
Hide the pain, hide the pain, hide the pain
Hide the pain, hide the pain, hide the pain
Hide the rage, hide the rage, hide the rage
Hide the rage, hide the rage, hide the rage
Feel the fear in this half life we share
Feel the pain in this half life we share
Feel the rage in this half life we share
Feel me in this half life we share.
Feel me......
Track Name: Endorphin Crash
Stalking for a good time
Walking the life of a sinner
Sheathed in unholy white
Soon turned to lust
Drowning in waves of heat
and sweat
Endorphin Rising
Endorphin Crash
Endorphin Rising
Endorphin Crash

Darkness surrounds
Bodies crowded close
Hungry for acceptance
My legal high
Keeps me spinning
in waves
Endorphin Rising
Endorphin Crash
Endorphin Rising
Endorphin Crash

Swimming and rocking in time
For pleasure and pain in this life
Taking in the liquid scent
Feel free for
Release
Release me
Release
Release
Me

Back in circulation
To become the next prize
Hungry for acceptance
I'll be the high
Keeps you spinning
in waves
Endorphin Rising
Endorphin Crash
Endorphin Rising
Endorphin Crash
Endorphin Rising
Endorphin Crash
Endorphin Rising
Endorphin...

Track Name: Down
People are talking
About you going down
Everyone's listening
It's the talk of the town

You better learn to swim
Or you'll drown
In this town
Yeah you're going down

People are watching you
They see you're every move
I know they're wondering
Is there something to prove

There's been some talk around
About you Going down
You better learn to swim
Or you'll drown
In this town
Yeah you're going down
Yeah you'll drown
Oh down

Were you down on the ground would
I be surprised
Would I be content knowing
you had died
Trust is all but gone, you took it
when you left
Not being strong enough is all that
I regret
Not strong enough

People are talking
About you going down
Everyone's watching you
You're the talk of the town
Track Name: Simple
I open my eyes
Today's the day I realize
Time is passing by
It's time to live the simple life

Time to live without restraint
Time to push the pain away
Time to live without regret
Time to live to live to live

There was a time when my world was shattered
When I always thought the worst
The little things they used to twist and turn me
Making my life so unreal

I didn't see what was happening,
drive away
My mind was consumed
With the worst
Case scenario I was lost
Kill me now

Watch and wait for catastrophe
Always holding me back
The mountains dwarf me two feet tall
I can't go on like that

I was alone in this fight
Pulling me into despair
Angry and seething of the loss
Compromise my guard once again

I couldn't understand why it didn't come together
I tried to show; I tried to force, to exact my will on you
Only a matter of time until you left me standing bare
And in my hazy thoughts, I see my problem and the truth

Now I see the....
Now I see the....
Now I see the....
Now I see the truth

A little tension now and then
I get through it in the end
Now with my new found sense of being
Nothing comes in-between
the calm
There are times which test me hard
But I remember just how far
I've come before this time , now
Nothing comes in-between
My calm

Rolling off my mind
Shaking off the doubt

Rolling off my mind
Shaking off the doubt
Rolling off my mind
Free

No longer wait for catastrophe
No longer holding me back
No mountains to dwarf me two feet high
I will go on and on
But every now and then I feel
That doubt seeping it's way in
And all I have to do is remember
To feel back into my past

I didn't see what was happening,
drive away
My mind was consumed
With the worst
Case scenario I was lost
Kill me now

Through the years that I look back
And see my lonely self
I thought I was complete I thought I was so sure,
I thought it was the only way to be
Then I realized I wasn't so sure

And Now I live the Simple Life
And Now I live the Simple Life
And Now I live the Simple Life
And Now I live the Simple Life

I open my eyes
Today's the day I realize
Time is passing by
It's time to live the simple life
Track Name: City on the Water
Take my hand
There's a city on the water
Where everyone can be
Everything
There's a little bit of sunshine
Clear the worries from your mind

Rest your eyes
Don't think ahead
It's all right
It's all right

Dream and sleep
Float down a drifty river
Let the sunlight pass through you
It's O.K.
Don't need to feel guilty

Go back to sleep back to sleep
Breathing deep breathing deep

Rest your eyes
Don't think ahead
It's all right
It's all right
It's all right
It's all right
It's all right
It's all right
