The concept of this song was to sample sounds from everyday life to create surreal synths. So what you’ll be hearing in the song will be the sounds made from bowls, lamps, wires, toy pianos, cubes, drawers, and cabinets on top of your traditional instruments.


Have we been walking in the dark so long
Our eyes begin to believe
The light filtered through the leaves
Of false reality
Maybe I have lost control
In the eyes of the world
But this anthem singing in my soul
Is ringing loud and clear

Falling like scales from my
Eyes rid me of the lies
Surrounding me
Shadows around your light
Leaving this world behind
A new reality

Have we lost sight of all that's good and pure
replaced them with a cure
A sedative a chemical
A bandaid to hide the wound
I'll tear it from my skin to bring
my discontentment to the light
Submerging these wounds in this pool
Brings healing to my life

I confess
This is everything I know
No second guessing
No turning back for gold
Headlights heading straight for me
I close my eyes but I can see
Red love pulsing through my lids
I force myself to look ahead
If I don't move will it be the end
Or will it be a new beginning
