about

Its finally here!

I can't thank everyone who helped me with all the stress that went with making this enough! This was a very fun experience and I hope I'll be able to do another album like this one day.

Other than moral support, I really had no other help on this album. Everything you hear, and all the art you've seen from the singles and the album art, was all done by me. I worked super hard on this, and I hope everyone who listens enjoys the album!

This album was Recorded, Mixed, and Mastered in the span of one year, (From January 2015, to December 2015) all in my room with some sound clips of Drums, an old Lynx Stratocaster that would be pitched down an octave to be the bass, a $50 CAD mic, the Trial version of Mixcraft 7, Audacity, and a Rocksmith Aux Chord.

Track Name: She Cries Black Tears
We know what we have to do…
We know what we will do…
To get her to stop…
To get her to stop crying…

I haven’t had this thought in…
I hadn’t thought about it…
To take a look about it…
To watch the skies above it…

What a glorious day for a…
Rained on picnic…
Well I have thought about it…
And I don’t really like it at all…

She cries, she cries…
She cries way to much, oh…
Track Name: Weather Depending
I was at an amusement park...
While I was there I had a dream I was a weather man...
Throwing things at the camera man because I was super pissed about global warming...
Except it wasn't a dream...
And it wasn't me...

I wasn't awake!
I wasn't listening!
Because I was put out by the tranquilizer you shot me with!
I'm seein' colors and shapes everywhere!
Track Name: CITY/COUNTRY
Well the problem with this city, is that it's ruled by self-pity, but our pockets are filled gold all the time.

Well the plan was in motion, with these particular notions,
Had us turned around and confused at every corner.

While this side of me grew weak, the other became a beast, when our eyes locked and our guns cocked, this time it'll happen again.

Well I took the train, and no it wasn’t the pain train,
Every time it happens I can’t pretend…

That the train had stopped, that the train would never stop,
Open your eyes to see what’s in front of ya’…
Track Name: Under the Radar
Under the radar I see my own flesh and blood…
Inwards and Outwards, these wounds can’t be undone…
Honesty and Modesty, my only weaknesses.
Truth be told, I’ll never know, ‘bout the consequences…
Track Name: Public Education
Well I get up every morning to get yelled at by a teacher,
Hello choir, have you met the preacher?
And they say it's my job, but I know I ain't gettin' paid.
And they complain about how they aren't at all gettin' paid.

And now I've got a word search for Homework.
And It couldn't be anything else?

And now if I don't pass school, well you'll know why.
Because I got a bad grade on a test back then,
In the 6th grade when I was real young, spraying cheap perfume on the girl next door.
Track Name: And You Left
And you left, to your job, in another city...
And didn't come back till Friday...
And you stayed, everyday on the weekend...
Then you left, on the day after Sunday...

There were times, when I, forgot your face...
But then you came back and I remembered...
But then, you left and I forgot...
Till the next time, you came home again...

Well today I feel alright, well today I feel alright yeah, today I feel alright, today I feel alright, oh!
Track Name: I need to speak so let me speak
I need so speak so let me speak…
I need to be away from me…
I wish I could say more than I need…
But the problem is I don’t have much to say at all…

I need to speak so let me speak…
I need to leave, so let’s leave…
I don’t wanna stay, let’s have a drink…
I’m the hypocrite livin’ on your street…
Track Name: Realizations
What do you mean "Santa isn't real"?
What did you mean when you said that?
What do you mean, Valentines Day is a sham?
What did you mean when you said that?

Well...
Sticks and stones may break my bones, and words will always hurt me...
It's 2 am in the morning, and I can't sleep...
Cause I'm afraid that the big kid from school is coming to kill me...

What do you mean I'm just being dramatic?
What did you mean when you said that?
What do you mean he's actually coming to get me?
What did you mean when you said that?

What do you mean do you mean I'm failing class?
What did you mean when You said that?
What do you mean I can't pay for college?
What did you mean when you said that?
What do you mean I'm being evicted?
What did you mean when you said that?
What do you mean I have 3 months left?
What did you mean when I said that?

But now I finally know what you meant...
But I guess it's way too late...
Track Name: Maybe After
Maybe after…
We can go and gaze at the stars…

Maybe after…
We can talk about all that we’ve lost…

The Skies, are green tonight…

And all, our dreams tonight, dance in the little meadow we call our minds…

Maybe after…
We’ll go dance on our own…

Maybe after…
We could walk to one of the stars…

My hands, won’t stop shaking…

My body won’t stop shaking for no reason at all...
Track Name: We're Fallin' Down
We’re falling down…
And I can’t see…
You when you, fall down with me…

And All around….
I can see…
The sky when you, grab my hands and fall with me…

And Will our lives…
Become much better?
If we both hit, the ground?
Together?
