about

3 years in the making, "FIND." is an album that I have put my all into. Self-produced, it is the very reflection of many of the emotions, events, and inspirations that have befallen me during that time. I hope to move, entertain, and maybe even inspire people with my music. Thank you for listening.

Track Name: Find.
You'll find your way, your way soon.
In time you'll make, you'll make it through.
I'll find my way, my way soon.
In time I know, I know I'll see you.
Track Name: Unfold
Lay your head upon me
Close your eyes completely
You don't need to worry
You can trust what I see

We all unfold
We melt into one

Such beauty unmatched
I don't know what is the catch
Dip your feet down in the creek
While you leave me entirely weak.

We all unfold
We melt into one
Track Name: Born
Born in the clouds
Ignorance is bliss
I slowly become
Aware of my surroundings

and after years of distraction I finally see
that I'm falling
The vultures fly beside me
as if they were my friend
but they keep me falling until the end

for each one born is another meal
so they're kept unaware of what is real

If you close your eyes you will know never
but is having them open even better?
Track Name: Last Of Us
Swear to me
Swear to me
Swear to me that everything is true.

Is consciousness a curse?
Existing is exhausting
There's no one left here
I'm still waiting for my turn

I swear
I swear...
Track Name: Submission
I am a coward for not saying what I needed to
to you
I'm ruled by fear that I'll never feel for you
the way you feel for me
My perception skewed a long long time ago
When I found out nothing lasts

Two lonely souls seeking refuge
in a false idea of love
Desire for perfection perpetuated by fiction
We've been conditioned

I refuse the situation
and replace with sensation
In an endless spiral downward
I truly am a coward

I don't see things the same way everyone wants me to
and neither do you
We're unorthodox out of the box
We can't be beaten into submission

There's no place for fear
life is defeating but also fleeting
(Free me from this flesh
bring this pain to rest)

Trying to find the infinite in the finite
The light in the night
There's gotta be something
Please let there be something...

This place I've gone
Is there any way out?
This person I've become
Is there any way out?
There's no way out.
Track Name: First Snow
I gotta get away
Just gotta get away from here
I'm waiting for the day
the day that I can disappear

The first snow's already fallen
there's nothing left for me here
It doesn't matter what you say
I'll be gone today
It's alright, it's okay, there's no way I can stay here anymore
Things are not how they were before

There's gotta be more out there for me
There's gotta be some way to be free

I gotta get away
Just gotta get away from here
I'm waiting for the day
the day that I can disappear
Track Name: Go Back
How I wish to go back
With love in my heart and a bag on my back
and walk amongst the trees
and feel the mountain breeze

How I wish to go back
A city street and a folded map
and feel the rain drip down my face
and wish to be no other place

But one day...

How I wish to go back
and feel your hands across my back
and get lost in your eyes like a ship at the sea
with no desire for anyone to find me.

But one day...
Track Name: Aside
No trees, no air, no care, there's no empathy
in the place that I call my home
Consume flesh, get your fix, Fuck the rest, you're all hypocrites
Pick the meat right off my bone.

Where are we going? We might not make it out alive
The way we're going, there's no way that we will survive
What are we fighting for? The change must come from within
but there's a small glimpse of hope that I'm not going out there alone.

Start your war, get your oil, we don't care, the blood is not on our soil
Put up a wall to keep the nuisance out
Frack the ground, crack the sky, it doesn't matter what's gotta die
We don't care as long as we still thrive.


Where are we going? We might not make it out alive
The way we're going, there's no way that we will survive
What are we fighting for? The change must come from within
but there's a small glimpse of hope that I'm not going out there alone

Our god better than your god, no gays, no other race
Feel the hate drip from your faith
Opinions over science, only believe what's convenient
Put the bullet right in your brain.


Where are we going? We might not make it out alive
The way we're going, there's no way that we will survive
What are we fighting for? The change must come from within
but there's a small glimpse of hope that I'm not going out there alone
Track Name: wurwur
I'm losing sleep.
I'm losing sleep.
I'm in too deep.
I'm in too deep.
Track Name: Goodbye.
I do not know where I will be-
fore I go I must tell you good-
by(e) the way before I for-
get the best out of your life
don't you cry
I will see you one last time

This is goodbye to my home
I'll always remember you
And all this time that I've grown
I owe it all to you
This is goodbye to my home
I'll always remember you
And all the places I've gone
I'd always come back to you

And I know I'm ready
I just like the idea
Being able to come back here and live it all over again
the second I stepped into a room
but now I'm truly free
my roots go deep but my heart is with the wind
And I hope that you can see
I have a restless soul my friend
but this is not the end for you

This is goodbye to my home
I'll always remember you
And all this time that I've grown
I owe it all to you
This is goodbye to my home
I'll always remember you
And all the places I've gone
I'd always come back to you
