about

The Rest was once again supposed to be my last studio recording, but just when I think I’m out, they pull me back in! This album features mostly re-recorded songs from the 90’s, with a few newer tacks from 2014. *The new tracks were from a failed album project called “Digital Surrogate Performer” from 2014.

All songs recorded from 2011 to 2014.

Brady Arnold Dayton, Ohio

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: The Storm Rages On
You're a mystery to me.
Trapped in a cell, but you always had the key.
And you can't hold back all the things in the past.
they're running and they're running to catch up with you at last.
Are you writing a tragedy?
Why is there sadness in everything you see?
When you won't throw down your sword and shield.
The wounds you carry they must be healed.
Moving harder against the grain.
Soon the elements will have their rage.

Out there in the rain, you're so alone, and full of pain.
What's killing you is driving you on, while the storm rages on.

You're on history repeat.
Spinning the wheels, but it never let's you see.
And you're crawling through the halls of your mind.
Running and you're running to catch up with time.
Are you wiping away a stain?
You do what you can but you can't erase the pain.
When you won't let anyone get too close.
As long as you're fighting with the ghost.
Moving harder against the grain.
Soon the elements will have their rage.

Out there in the rain, you're so alone, and full of pain.
What's killing you is driving you on, while the storm rages on.

You're a mystery...
Soon you'll be history...
You're a mystery...
Re-write your history... to end this misery.

Out there in the rain, you're so alone, and full of pain.
What's killing you is driving you on, while the storm rages on, and on, and on...

The chance you have will soon be gone, make the change to carry on and on and on...!
Track Name: Creep Like Me
Creep Like Me

More More! More More!

(Abm)
Invisible parts, with irresistible hearts.
Shining like diamonds, and make the sweetest sound.
Not one leak, not one corruption.
Not one single image could be found.

(Gb--Abm)
Every attempt I make, I just can't seem to shake.
Everywhere I look, I cannot find the key.
There's always something there, that just won't let me through.
No matter how I try to move it, every attempt just won't remove it.

(E----Gb)
Something must hide you away! Something must keep you away
(Abm)
From a creep like me! From a creep like me!
From a creep like me! From a creep like me!

(Abm break)
(Amb)
I'm creeping through, your digital life.
I cannot see the barriers, that were built to surround.
But I'm hangin on.... By a thread.
Not one sign of hope to be found.

(Gb--Abm)
It seems the voice of fate is telling me it's a mistake.
Everywhere I look, all the pictures slowly fade.
There's always something there, that just won't let me through.
No matter how I try... I just can't get to YOU...

(E----Gb)
Something must hide you away! Something must keep you away
(Abm)
From a creep like me! From a creep like me!

(Abm break)
I've turned every corner, no place left to go.
Miles and miles without one thing to show.
I can't stop now I've put too much into this.
If I don't find one single prize I swear I'm going to lose it!

(E----Gb)
Something must hide you away! Something must keep you away
(Abm)
From a creep like me! From a creep like me!
Track Name: Dark Dreams
In the darker dreams, the ocean moon beams.
Remembering the time not so long ago it seems.
Forever our lives had changed and the promise it came.
The dreams turned cold and the darkness remained.

In my mind I'm home again, back in time.
The sand and sea glisten in the light.
The past is not forgotten, it will all remain.
The darker dream relives the stormy weather of change.

In my mind I'm home again back in time.
When you're by the seaside, wonder what you'll find calling you.
Listen loud, calling through, listen now.

The never ending desire to find it: the final piece of mind.
In a dream you try to find it: the final piece of mind.

What are you going to do if it grows much too late?
Will I ever see it again? Will it be my fate?
I don't want to die where the cold winds blow.
Still I run against all the things that I should know.

Can you help me? I'm shouting through the darkness.
It all feels so good but I don't feel it with my heart.

Keep on searching through the corridors of the dream.
Always the same brokenness, doesn't end it seems.
The never ending (etc.)
Track Name: Fighting a Ghost
Fighting a Ghost

(Bm-G)
Going out to get you, I'm going to make you pay!
But this spiritual conflict always seems to stand in the way!
(G-D-A)
I don't know who else to blame, the blood still runs from my veins.
(Bm-G)
Running away, I'm running from love, running from all the things you taught me!
Losing sleep, I cannot keep convictions that are always controlling me.
(G-D-A)
I understand that you never meant to bring me pain.
But it was you who left me in the pouring rain.
A phony love, that you built up just to have your way.
Just one day you turned from lover into runaway.
(Bm-D-A-E)
Now I am stuck with your ghost. Why must you keep me so close.
(Em-G-D-A)
I'm fighting with a ghost! I'm tired of dragging your bones!
(Bm-D-A-E)
I'm dining with your ghost. Must you always consume the most!
(G-D-A)
I only want to let go. The only way that I know!
(Bm-G)
Always been a part of me that never moved forward from that day.
Affraid of love knowing that suddenly it all gets torn away!
(G-D-A)
You were in complete control of how it all would play.
Never thinking about a life you would forever change.
A phony love, that you built up just to have your way.
Just one day you turned from lover into runaway.
(Bm-D-A-E)
I'm fighting with your ghost. Why must you keep me so close.
(Em-G-D-A)
I'm fighting with a ghost! I'm tired of dragging your bones!
(Bm-D-A-E)
I'm dining with your ghost. Must you always consume the most!
(G-D-A)
I only want to let go. These words they reach you so cold!
(Bm-G)
(spoken) Some experiences have a lasting impression,
the kind that changes someone forever!
(Bm-D-A-E)
I'm fighting with your ghost. Why must you keep me so close.
(Em-G-D-A)
I'm fighting with a ghost! I'm tired of dragging your bones!
(Bm-D-A-E)
I'm dining with your ghost. Must you always consume the most!
(G-D-A)
Going out to get you, I'm going to make you pay!
I only want to let go. The past remains here so cold!
Going out to get you, I'm going to make you pay!
I only want to let go. These words they reach you so cold!
Going out to get you, I'm going to make you pay!
I only want to let go. The past remains here so cold!
Going out to get you, I'm going to make you pay!
I only want to let go. These words they reach you so cold!
Track Name: Visions
Silence surrounding and fall into place.
The dream returns to reveal your face.
I'd like to run but I cannot move.
Every night it doesn't help me through.
Under your spell that comes with the night.
My eyes don't see but you're still in my sight.
Visions so real what can never be.
Letting the darkness descend over me.

Why can't I pull away from you?
You keep me close but never let me through.
When it's time to face the black.
You always try to pull me back.

Flying high and far from this scene.
I search all night to find a new dream.
It's torture seeing what you cannot reach.
Just take me, take me down to the beach.

Going insane as every thought becomes you.
Questioning my thoughts to see it through.
Find me a way to get to something new.
Everything shatters now what do I do?
Following footsteps behind the door.
Am I just really asking for more?
Drowning obsession drives me astray.
When it comes down I've got nothing to say.

Why can't I (etc.)
Flying high and (etc.)
The answer is coming......

We touch again in a silver sky.
Uncontrollable emotions fly.
Under your spell, covered in night.
I close my eyes but you're still in my sight
You laid down the footprints behind the door.
Taking with you what was before.
Silence surrounding and fall into place.
The dream returns to reveal your face.

You keep me close but never let me through.
You always try to pull me back.

Flying high and far from this scene.
I search all night to find a new dream. (keep repeating)
