about

My 2017 album builds upon the style introduced on "Endless Blue" and took things in a more gothic metal direction, as well as folk and Celtic influenced (I played more flute on this album than ever before - you can hear the flute on Masquerade, Lion, Make Believe, Under the Moonlight and Jupiter). Ultimately this release would lead me toward fully embracing my love of orchestral and folk music.

Overall theme: Break through the subconscious critic within.

Track Name: Masquerade
Give me one thing to hold onto
I've been having doubts of what is false or true
I told you once, I've told you twice
I don't know how I get through these nights
I can't seem to find just how to slow my mind

I cannot seem to shake this feeling of dread
That everything I feel inside is not as it seems
So is this real or masquerade?
This must be all in my dreams

I sit down in this sterile waiting room
Everyone here, behind a mask they hide
Well who am I in this great wide world?
This grand ballet of just close enough
Still can't seem to find just how to slow my mind

I cannot seem to shake this feeling of dread
That everything I feel inside is not as it seems
So is this real or masquerade?
This must be all in my dreams

So you can lay me down to rest
Is this not as it seems
And if it takes me all my life
I must wake up from this dream

I cannot seem to shake this feeling of dread
That everything I feel inside is not as it seems
So is this real or masquerade?
This must be all in my dreams
So you can lay me down to rest
This is not as it seems
Life is just a masquerade
Or is this all in my dreams?
Track Name: Lion
Everything seems to be wrong
Has it been this all along?
Give it back, give it back, she said
You know what you stole from me
My little piece of mind

Things aren't always really as they seem
We must understand

The girl is crying
There's nowhere to hide
There's no denying
This great divide
There's no use trying
She's running out of time
And she's still crying
But deep down inside
Is the heart of a lion

Working harder everyday
To make the demons go away

Things aren't always really as they seem
We must understand

The girl is crying
There's nowhere to hide
There's no denying
This great divide
There's no use trying
She's running out of time
And she's still crying
But deep down inside
Is the heart of a lion

The heart of a lion
Track Name: Make Believe
Come on, I need something to go on
We're leaving it unsaid
This voice is ringing in my head
"You're all I need, so let's make believe"

Got me hanging on, I'm hanging by a thread
This company I keep is what I
What I've begun to dread
So come on, I'm down on my knees

Come on, I need something to go on
We're leaving it unsaid
This voice is ringing in my head
"You're all I need, so let's make believe"

Just give me some motivation
Take away this temptation
All your warmth taken from me now, no
Now I can't seem to breathe
So come on, I'm down on my knees

Come on, I need something to go on
We're leaving it unsaid
This voice is ringing in my head
"You're all I need, so let's make believe"

This is what I've, what I've been missing
The strength to pursue all my ambitions
No one would have ever thought
This change of heart
This is what I, what I've been needing
All my demons are what I've been feeding
I know you can't save me so just leave me as I am

Come on, I need something to go on
We're leaving it unsaid
This voice is ringing in my head
"You're all I need"

Come on, I need something to go on
We're leaving it unsaid
This voice is ringing in my head
"You're all I need, so let's make believe"
Track Name: Are You Real?
I wonder what is real
Is this really what I feel
Is it what I've been searching for
So now what do I do
Well, I guess there's only one thing
There's something I'd like to know

Are you real?
Can you feel?
This seems too good to be true
Are you real?
Can you feel the love?
Track Name: Under The Moonlight
It's so hard to find the one
But you're so easy to see
So glad it's you I found

Under the moonlight, you're here
Under the night sky, it's clear to me
Holding on these memories, so dear
Under the moonlight, you're here
With me

I still long to look into your eyes
And pull you from this great divide
I'll be with you someday

Under the moonlight, you're here
Under the night sky, it's clear to me
Holding on these memories, so dear
Under the moonlight, you're here
With me
Track Name: Jupiter
Standing close, yet never felt further away
Have I given up or just
Can I no longer stay
As the dark surrounds me
The light is out of reach
The view from here, a breathtaking nothing
It preys upon your fear inside
What's trying to hide?

Can you see me
Time's forgotten my name
As I fade away
The sun and the stars
Fall through my mind
I watch the world from Jupiter

Void of feeling, a mind deceiving
Hard to accept it now, as I'm no longer real
She will give, she will take
Whatever thought lost in her wake
The red will shine, all glory lost
The world, a heart at stake
Isn't it divine
This grand design

Can you see me
Time's forgotten my name
As I fade away
The sun and the stars
Fall through my mind
I watch the world from Jupiter

I know that I've been here far too long

Can you see me
Time's forgotten my name
As I fade away
The sun and the stars
Fall through my mind
I watch the world from Jupiter
Track Name: Edge
Everything around me feels fake
Now I know not what to do
Air is stale, begins to drip down
One more breath, we must stay true
Give me one thing to believe in
This curse upon me, it soon must lift
No more time left here to wallow in
The time is now for us to walk alone

I wish I could find my way home
But I'm on the edge of redemption
The blood on my hands, deep black
My sin, this curse, forever now
Can I find redemption?

Getting closer to the edge
One step further, all out of sight
To rely on intuition
How can I trust this waning light?
To blindly walk this crooked path
We must believe or we are lost
The time has come and gone to resist
Yet I will not accept this fate

I wish I could find my way home
But I'm on the edge of redemption
The blood on my hands, deep black
My sin, this curse, forever now
Can I find redemption?
On the edge
On the edge
Of redemption

If only we could see the light
Yet we creep across the shadows of the night
If only we had dreams to realize

I wish I could find my way home
But I'm on the edge of redemption
Track Name: Far Away
Sitting here listening to myself think
Often I wonder, will I succeed, or will I just sit and sink
Its times like this, sometimes I'll miss
The little things I used to enjoy
I try to keep my head up
Things just need to let up
And until then I'll be here alone

I've been feeling like I'm so far away from all that I know
Not fully detatched, but somewhat on track
And sometimes I feel like I've been here before
But this degree is different, my fever is high
I can tell I'm not far from shallow water
This notion is deep, the halyard is frayed
And all I'm looking for is for you to say

I feel you
I need you
But all I see is blue
The endless blue

Lying here, I'm trying to hear you
My truth is confused with faith
Sails torn down, I'm drifting away
Now sooner than later I'll be in some other place
My hunger is starving, my throat is burning
I can tell I'm not far from shallow water
Through the warmth I'm cold, but for you I'm bold
And just thinking of you, now I can say

I feel you
I need you

I feel you
and I need you
But all I see is blue
The endless blue
Track Name: Say Goodbye
Gravity is wearing thin
Yet I still walk
Inebriation's setting in
But I can still talk
There's a lion inside, I swear
And I must stand tall
Against the world
I'm on my own

Say goodbye
I can hear them say
That everything inside is all a lie
Just to get their own way
Say goodbye
A price too high to pay
There's comes a time you know inside
You won't stand for the charade
So just walk away

Never realized til now
This false visage
Just how long can I afford
This self-sabotage
There's a lion inside, I swear
And I must stand tall
Against the world
Here I stand

Say goodbye
I can hear them say
That everything inside is all a lie
Just to get their own way
Say goodbye
A price too high to pay
There's comes a time you know inside
You won't stand for the charade
So just walk away

All my life
I knew there'd come a time for me to say
Goodbye

Say goodbye
I can hear them say
That everything inside is all a lie
Just to get their own way
Say goodbye
A price too high to pay
There's comes a time you know inside
There's only one thing left to say
Goodbye
