I am a DIY solo artist, making music since 1993. The style of music is progressive, pop, industrial, and experimental. When I say DIY, I really mean it! I record myself, I write my own stuff, and I play all my own instruments. Sometimes I even build the instruments too! ... more

Track Name: A Castle Made of Ice
Never said the words to get me there.Instead we turned to run.
Didn't want to know what could have been.It ended before it begun.
The ice it formed a wall around me, and words became too strange.
Time was up, and the door had closed. I saw your picture fade.

Building up a fortress made from ice and snow.
I will sleep in the heart of it; never feeling cold.

She bit me on my neck, they'll try to drive a stake through my heart.
I'm preying for something better than this, cos it's always falling apart.
I thought I saw you standing over me when I opened my eyes.
Vision is distorting now from the million lies.

Passed the point of no return; feelings are locked into place.
Cutting through my mind; the screams that are sustained.
My castle made of ice.... Never melt away....

Never a time for me to run and just be free.
The ice covering my eyes; starting not to see.
Many late strange cold nights in this darkened fantasy.
Solitary confinement; frozen from reality.

I built this castle made from ice and snow.
I never sleep because the screams they always grow.

Passed the point of no return; feelings are locked into place.
Cutting through my mind; the screams that are sustained.
My castle made of ice.... Never melt away....
Track Name: Towards
(C#-D-F#-G)
Running towards a better life, or am i just running away.
Wondering when it will come crashing down to send me back to the frey.
(Bm-G-C#-G)
How many times will I lie awake, and dance with the waking dead.
How many times must I have to fight with the stranger inside my head.
(C#-D-F#-G)
In the wake of deception, I refuse to face what's real.
Living with no tomorrow, and the pain this life will reveal.
(Bm-G-C#-G)
Stop short of the river's edge, and head the warning sign.
If you want to change your ways, you got to to take the time....
(middle section)
(Em-D)
Take a look deep inside, and there you will find paradise. Isn't it nice?
The feeling of being loved, and to know you're understood. Don't you feel good? Just like you should....
(Bm-A)
Back in the real world the fear will conquer the dream.
Do you feel uncomfortable when nothing is what it seems....
(G-Agb)
Always locked away in your shell with no one to hear your screams....
(B riff #1)
(Em-D)
Trapped inside of you; there's a life that wants to be will you set it free, the way it should be....
You see the glory in all it's light, but you still refuse to end this fight tonight, though you know it's not right.
(Bm-A)
Back in the real world you're afraid of letting go.
Do you feel you're on the wrong path, when the truth it starts to show....
(G-Agb)
The endless isolation, with no one to share your dreams....
(Bm riff#1)
(C#-D-F#-G)
One last time of excess, pushing the needle to the red.
One more time of getting high and waking up feeling dead.
(Bm-G-C#-G)
Stop short of the river's edge, and head the warning sign.
If you want to change your ways, you got to to take the time
(C#-D-F#-G)
Pick up the pieces and start again, don't let the world drag on you.
Use the power of love divine; the only thing that will get you through.
(Em-D)
Take a look inside, and you'll find paradise.
waiting inside of you is the power of love divine.
Take a look inside, and you'll find paradise.
waiting inside of you is the power of love divine.
Take a look inside, and you'll find paradise.
waiting inside of you is the power of love divine.
Take a look inside, and you'll find paradise.
waiting inside of you is the power of love divine.
Track Name: Cloudy
Weighing these facts of my head
while awaking on a padded bed.
My vision has grown quite cloudy,
and I can't tell if I'm dead.
A glance to the corner of the room,
what is it that you see?
A snake that's curled in a circle
biting it's tail till it bleeds.
A bright figure in red appears
to the right of the snake still there.
He says that's you in the circle,
and he vanishes without a care.
My vision it starts to rise....
"Nurse do I see you over there?!?!"
I still can't make out the shapes in the room
if you happen to notice my stare......
Track Name: Under a Cloudy Spell
Stay away! You don't want near me!
If you knew, you probably would fear me!
Where I stand, the ground is shaky.
It falls through, you don't want to come with me.
All this time in capture from it,
because of the way they done it.
I'm confused inside of a circle maze.
I slide on the ground, I must be a snake!!!

Beware the contents in my head
may shift if you can catch my drift.
I might keep sane on the outside, b
but I'm dead, dying on the inside.
It's a test of strength to overcome,
all this hurt to be undone
But I don't want to join the game.
Last time I played it made me go insane!!!!

What are you trying to do to me!!!!
I know they're out to find me!!!
Track Name: Lovestale
Written July-Nov of 2004

In the night I can't escape what I fear.
Another dream of you cold and crystal clear.
It's the same dead end I'm always hanging by a string.
It's the same old thing I can't escape inside a dream.

These words you hear, but you just don't understand.
The music drowns me out; sinking in the sand.
Will my message ever get on through?
Will these words ever resonate in you?

I go invisible; you do not hear what I say.
I don't exist to you; I only fade away.
Everybody takes a piece of you.
Everybody gets a piece of you.

My days are cold, and the nights are dark and grey.
I'm tired of watching you; I got to break away.
I'm always falling into places left unseen.
I'm always calling no one there to rescue me.

So you think you control the game?
No such thing if I've chosen not to play!
Are you feeling out of place with me ever-changing face?

So you think you have control?
Take everything and lose control!
Because I'm seeing through the lie, and I'm seeing through you.

If there was something new for me to see.
But it's just the same old ways that be.
It's getting hard to breathe, it's getting hard to see.
And I don't want you standing close to me.

If there was something you could say to me
to make me change my mind once more.
Just need to find the door, I've had enough for sure.
And I don't feel like living anymore.

So you think you know the night.
You can't leave here until you get it right.
Did something change while in a dream
when you were sleeping through the night.

Walking though my ways of fear.
Never understanding what you hear.
It was all meant for you, but you will never know...

If there was something new for me to see.
But it's just the same old ways that be.
It's getting hard to breathe, it's getting hard to see.
And I don't want you standing close to me.

If there was something you could say to me
to make me change my mind once more.
Just need to find the door, I've had enough for sure.
And I don't feel like living anymore.

I've reached the end of me, there's nothing left to say.
I cannot carry on; start to fade away.

No one believes I lived a life full of pain.
Trapped inside this emptiness. Auf Wiedersehen!

They never taught me how to love, they raised me with hate.
They sent me on a path of tired and desperate fate.

All that I wanted was taken from me.
Trapped in myself, cannot break free!
Left it behind; a safe place in mind.
Wasting my time as my life passes by!

Get me out of this nightmare! Don't want to be here anymore!
Track Name: Sea Window
I've wished everything away from here,
a delicate state needs no complication.
I stare at the walls endlessly.
Wondering the next time.....sleep.
Subconscious message of the sea revealed,
still blossoming in the mind in time.

Static memories of the past, fractals into a code of white.
Sea window it froze, buried the game in time.

A walk by the seaside all night with the moon.
Clouds roll past, the waves come in fast.
Spirits of the shoreline speak to your mind,
after you've gone and left it all behind.
