about

Grey Area. The space between.

In the case of this record, the space between a cohesive album or concept, and a single. Essentially, this is an audio sketchbook. Singles, one-offs, demos, and soundscapes recorded between 2001 and 2012.
Due to a drive failure, the masters for 99% of these were lost. As such, the quality on many of them leaves much to be desired, and with the exception of a few tracks, the mixes were incomplete. While I had planned (and spent many months working on) proper mix-downs and masters of these, this is, for better or worse, what was left.

Many of these songs are released publicly for the first time with this release, and while the others have been put out in some fashion over the years, this is the first time they have all been collected into one place.

The shadow of my hysteria.

Track Name: Dead or Free
A nation changed from its pain
where a brother will turn on a brother
if he's got a dollar to gain
left to legislation to decide
was is moral and what is sane
while in the back room dealing genocide
saying shut your mouth, we've got oil to defend

the prison bars are red, white, and blue
these colors don't run, so why the fuck are you
hiding your lies behind a badge of hate
cause real freedom, doesn't discriminate
3,000 families, and counting
a minor cost in your little game
can someone tell me please
war and peace became the same

This is my flesh and blood you see
and he's all that's left of the light in me
but he has no voice, and so I've made my choice
Dead or Free

Well, I'm not sure how to stop it
and I can't just fucking drop it
and I'd listen to the voice of reason
but the brands are burning
the voice of treason
everyone's wondering how we got so far of track
while the ones we asked are the ones who hijacked
every hope and prayer and dream
this is not what freedom means

This is my flesh and blood you see
and he's all that's left of the light of me
but he has no voice and so I've made my choice
Dead or Free
Track Name: 500 Days
Just had to shed some light
grew tired of the fight
who knows, maybe they were right
I was just trying to keep your heart safe

I had one food in the grave
with all the promises I gave
all swept away
in a hundred proof tidal wave

I was conceiving
of maybe believing
that this was meant to be
and all that's left is a shadow of me

Am I still falling from grace?
cause I swear
that it's been 500 days
since I saw your face
and all I've been trying to do
is build the perfect place
for me and you
but slow is the seed that I sow
and soon, you can come and
watch it grow

And after all
is said and done
it isn't something
that can be lost...or won

somewhere in time
someday you'll see
none of this was even
up to you...or me

it cannot break
but sometimes bends
may chip and fray away
but give it love and that too mends
Track Name: KeyShell
My chakra glows red hot
and it's burning through,
this numbness, and disconnection,
but I'm learning to
breath again
live again
hope and pray and love again
cause I barely remember when
there was anything left in
this heart to spend
but there was still a spark,
pushing me through the dark
a wave of faith rushing me to
the seashell on the shoreline

shining under the moonlight
at the edge of time

Look me in the eye and tell me
how 2 hearts can be wrong
cause people will despise
when they see, 2 hearts
that belong
together in a world
that's been
burning for so long
Look me in the eye and tell me
how 2 hearts can be wrong.

I've stayed invisible
guess maybe I
had my head in the sand
some say it's criminal
the fires that were fanned
but could it be
this was meant to be
a shade of destiny
it almost hurts to believe
cause I never could concieve
of the mirror that I see
when you see me
and if I leave behind
cynicism and naivette
I'm left with the key
to open up this shell
of endless possibilities

shining under the moonlight
at the edge of time
Track Name: the Quickening
still trying to balance the blade
of the plans as they were laid
atone for the sins I have made
that I hide in the shade
of the depths that I wade in

still trying to find time to stall
while I ignore the call
my reasons plug into the wall
but i'm trying not to fall in

I hear time is slippin'
I can feel the tic-tocs quicken
as the hope fades from your eyes

the Quickening
is coming
we're running out of time
you're sitting on the fence, boy
and it's time to choose a side

Grant my wish posthumously
to make some sense of the me
you'll never see
'cause you cannot conceive
of the cost you will leave with
the ghost who are grieving

and I hear time is slippin'
I can feel those tic-tocs quicken
as all the hope fades from your eyes

the Quickening is coming
it's time to choose your side
Track Name: Shake Kachina
inching toward the unfolding ribbon of fate
as karma unravels itself from a quickening state

shake, shake, shake kachina
dance my blue star
across the milky way
shake, shake, shake kachina

take off your mask for us all to see
to witness your indigo face
coming to shake us off of our knees

shake, shake, shake kachina
dance my blue star
across the milky way
shake, shake, shake kachina

4th world unfolding
