about

Hey guys,

So, after a few years working on my album, it is finally ready to be released, and so released it is! Went through quite a few hiccups in the recording of it, to the point where this last version is actually the third iteration of it. I scrapped four songs from this definitive version, which I will release at some point as “b-sides.”

Track Name: Intro(spection)
With time
We lost ourselves within these reveries
So blind
To never see

The signs
Of how our horizons fall beneath our feet
You and I
Transcending the divide
Track Name: Threshold of Evolution
All that we have sowed in life
Shall have died
From the drought in our minds
That form impassable rinds

A land scathed
By the suspension of belief
In a higher state of being
Buried inside a dream

In the last portion of this promised land
Fate finds the last surviving hand
That holds the fire that began this evolution
And a bleeding heart that demands restitution

Will you choose to vaguely follow
The ones that crossed the thoughtless voids
That silenced their voice
Or will you shed your skin
So callow and let your reason flow
Let it bleed from out of your soul

In the last portion of this promised land
Fate finds the last surviving hand
That holds the fire that began this evolution
And a bleeding heart that demands restitution

Experience a sensible regrowth
A re-evolution at your core
As it emanates into the world
(Feel your mind as it unfurls)

The suspension of belief
Shattered by the fundamental reasoning of this
Human experience
(Doubt turned into confidence)

See the labors of a man
Who truly now understands
Where it is that in this sphere he stands
(Treading further into ancient lands)

Replanting the seeds of our creation
Not needing mystic revelations
To understand that at our journey’s end
Our true test begins
Track Name: Chimerical Visions
I have seen the world through eyes unpunished
I have felt the touch of god in my mind's eye
I have breathed an air so pure I was ravished
I have heard the anguish of those bleeding full of sin

I have felt the stones of those who won’t accept
I have gazed beyond these walls through heaven's parapet
I have heard the whispers of divinely secrets
I have touched those sacred words now carved into my chest

Staring into the morning light
Searching in the rays of the sun
For answers hidden from the night
A path to redemption

But now the fear has begun to set in
All strings have been cut and let loose from this mortal coil
Visions of what could have been

And finally ends all the doubt
That I will ever be able to cure
And like a martyr I end this life's bout

I have felt the movement of time within my soul
I have seen the attributes of God in nature’s mold
I have nurtured many questions and answered manifold
I have known myself to be a finitely ordered mode

I have looked my world and found a truth so bright
That echoes in these white halls filling all with dread and fright
I will preach the truth to all in the shadow of the night
I will remove from this world all the demons and their blight

But now the fear has begun to set in
All strings have been cut and let loose from this mortal coil
Visions of what could have been

And finally ends all the doubt
That I will ever be able to cure
And like a martyr I end this life's bout

Watch the light as it flows
Upon the rivers of our mind and into the unknown
The void of all sacrificed

And past memories
Of those brave souls who came denied before me
Into this hollow dream which burned the effigies
Of angel eyes who came to see and bleed
To speak their words for us to heed and seek
A new beginning to life's endless bleak
And guide us through into eternity
The tongue of seraphim will you now speak

Visions that glisten becoming clearer
With each pill I swallow further
Close my eyes
Track Name: Reveries
Open the door and the sun will break
Specters in reveries Stalking souls to take
Innocence subsided and divided
Into darkness bleak
As the shadows cover the mountains peak

I drink from the waters that flow down the mountainous vain
I follow the light that glows the broken path of wise men that left the stain
Of their weary feet as they walk into their last life in temples that cry
The piper that sings the same song to their farewell bids me welcome into this world
Track Name: Ubiquitous
Spread like a poison coursing through a million veins
From its morrow to its crown killing all within its hearth
An omnipresent movement through the artery of life
A synchronized destruction silently alar a million lies

And all the while a resistance rises to oppose the vile
Pushing onward for this cold world to reconcile

900 branches stemming from the tree of death
Layering in shadows all the lands where they have tread
Fallen leaves the symbols of this oh so imminent threat
Looming like the sword of Damocles above our heads

And all the while a resistance rises to oppose the vile
Pushing onward for this cold world to reconcile
A crimson trail leading the way out of this hell

Here I stand on hidden graves upon this land
Of the first to bite the feeding hand and to get off their knees
Of the first to spill their blood on sand and to no more tyrants heed

Watch as we rise
From ashes to fight
To defend our reasons light
Our purpose you will never blind
Track Name: Alma Matter
Floating through both space and time
Lost within my mind
Feeling gravity take its place
On its rational find

Sailing through a sea of stars
Spiritual vessels are what we are
Embedded in this well of seclusion
Idle in timeless restitution

Now I feel the burdens of the past
Weighing me down to earth
No more confined to these reveries
A phantom pilot without a hearth

No more suns to serve as curtains
To a faceless identity
Lying hopeless in
Material supremacy

The soul is formed
From an outward spiral
The spiral towards our infinity
A consciousness
Interweaving
With the universal mentality

Reaching beyond these greater expectations
A physical emancipation
A mind healed by concentration
Hope weaved into full realization

Reaching that state of conscience
That turns me into light/no more will I fight
With my corporeal ties
As I extend my hand to the star kissed sky
And to their laws now do I
Track Name: Garden of Remembrance
Walking beyond this unnaturally crumbling gate
Under a Moon that never wanes
I perceive roses that wither with every passing day

A garden floor strewn with petals of stories never told
Of lives never to unfold
Silent caresses no heart will ever hold

Seething with anger at the decay that I see
Waiting on justice for the guilty to bleed
To thrust them away from their timeless reveries

Dawn shaping the advent of what is to be
Of silent deaths and quietly spoken decrees
These are the souls of remembrance

With every rose there’s a story to tell
Past memories that now agelessly dwell
(memory) (dwells)
Beneath a sea of ruins and waves of heart shaped shells
Drowning voices within a wishing well

I hear the desperate cries below
Descending further more into the unknown
Scaling the walls with heartened tones
Only to be sunk by voices yet unshown

Trapped inside walls of ash and stone
Paying tribute solely to skull and bones
Revenants that arise with scornful tones
Decaying remnants of all these broken homes

With every rose there’s a story to tell
Past memories that now agelessly dwell
Awaiting their time with each toll of the bells
Or for a savior / A deliverance from this hell

Twice the great monoliths rise above clouds
Spiraling towers of both fear and doubt
Chastising all who oppose their devout

Dark eyes that see all who enter and leave
This garden of grief that to death serves as eve
Watchful guardians remain unseen

Fear traps me inside of myself
Paralyzing my clarity’s health
Chanting words of wealth and greed
Self-knowledge shall forever set me free

With every rose there’s a story to tell
Past memories that now agelessly dwell
Beneath a sea of ruins and waves of heart shaped shells
Drowning voices no fire can easily quell

Burnt eyes that trace my every move
I favor dying souls with living boons
As I make my way in full lit moon
Fog ridden paths through murk and gloom

Reaching my sanctuary’s hold
Far from the Goliaths whisperings uncontrolled
No more will I ever mourn
The disembodied bellows of the sworn

With every rose there’s a story to tell
Past memories that once agelessly dwelled
No longer awaiting the toll of the bells
Or for a savior / A deliverance from this hell

See the man
Planting roses beside a riverbank
Hoping to find
A way to
Revive their lives
Torn by those so vile

Who saw them as simple means to find
An unjust end to another lie
But as promised justice made its call
To make them bleed
And from their blood new life came to be
