about

An EP of the gods, a collection of the past few month's work. I hope you enjoy it, and if you don't, it's for free so you're a selfish bastard. Just kidding, I love you, you're so cute.

about

Arcade Island Columbia, Maryland

Hello to my loyal fan. Not a typo, I'm speaking to you DIRECTLY through the magic of internet. My whole thing here with the music is no gimmicks, no cash grabs, no demographic mining, no bullshit. I just want to make music I like and say whatever I feel. If one person listens, I'll be happy. So enjoy, and I hope my candor is refreshing or at the very least grinding and irritating.

Track Name: Beautiful Distraction
LYRICS:

Every time I close my eyes, I can see you in my mind.
You smile like you always do, and it gets me through the night, every night.

And you're beautiful as usual, but you're always so far away.
You look at me with those thoughtful eyes, and you promise me that you'll take me away.

You're the only one I'll ever want, you're the only one I need.
And if I can't hold you in my arms, then at least I will hold you in my dreams.

As I look into the mirror, hoping answers come in time, these tired eyes remind me that I will never rest again until you're mine.

CHORUS:
Why should I lie?
I'm so tired of trying to change my mind.
I swear on my life and all things beautiful that I'll never, never dare lay down and die, because I'll leave this all behind.
Because it feels right.

The time for change is calling me, I can feel it in the rain.
It is urging me to break my bonds with this place before it's too late, it's not too late.

They tell me it's not worth it, but I will prove them wrong
when I shatter what's familiar just to show to them that you are where I belong.

CHORUS:
Why should I lie?
I'm so tired of trying to change my mind.
I swear on my life and all things beautiful that I'll never, never dare lay down and die, because I'll leave this all behind.
Because it feels right.

It's time to face reality for that was only just a dream.
To think like that's not logical, or at least that's what they all told me.

"Stop! You'll throw it all away! Think of all the pain you'll cause!"
I responded with a smile, "I'd rather face the hounds of hell than be lost..."

I see you walking towards me, like the dreams (on) to which I hold,
you speak to me and smile, and you've pulled me one million miles from home.

I stand above the deep end, I'm ready to take the leap.
As my world becomes a landslide, I just hope that you'll be waiting for me.
