about

Straight up rock album, with strong melodies and songwriting! We're talking strong vocals, impressive guitar leads, tight rhythm section and make you want to drive fast and play it loud kind of rock music! A general lyrical theme for the album could I suppose be repair & new beginnings. 7 years in the making, yet at the same time not a moment too soon, nor a day too late! We hope you enjoy!!

Track Name: Perfect
Perfect
(R. Johnson/T. Chesal)

I let my pride get the best of me
Instead of love pushed you away
Envy green is driving me crazy
Blaming you for ending up this way

I wish that I could be perfect
Then everyone could see
They don't have to rip you down
To be on the level with me

It's so hard living in your shadow
I don't know who I'm supposed to be
I'm so lost in your shadow
Let the sun go down and set me free

I wish that I could be perfect
Then everyone could see
They don't have to rip you down
To be on the level with me
I wish that i could be perfect
Then everyone could see
They don't have to rip you down
To be on the level with me

Solo

I wish that I could be perfect
Then everyone could see
They don't have to rip you down
To be on the level with me
I wish that i could be perfect
Then everyone could see
They don't have to rip you down
To be on the level with me

Track Name: Could Not Stay
Could Not Stay
- T. Chesal/R. Johnson

I knew a girl one day
She said she could not stay
No, no she could not stick around

Hung up on a clock she'll stay
Riding time as you could say
But no she could not be let down

Still holding it strong
In my own way
Still holding it strong
Day after day

I met a girl today
Same girl but a different day
Same day when it all comes boiling down

Hung up in her mind she'll stay
Reads lines a different way
Explains the life she's built around her

Still holding it strong
In my own way
Still holding it strong
Day after day

Solo

I knew a girl one day
She said she could not stay
No, no she could not stick around

Hung up on a clock she'll stay
Riding time as you could say
But no she could not be let down

Still holding it strong
In my own way
Still holding it strong
Day after day

Track Name: Violence Inspired
Violence Inspired
(R. Johnson/T. Chesal/J. Chesal)

Walking Disaster
Break it all down
Watching us crumble
Without any sound
Violence inspired
Behavior has spread
With venomous lies
In everything said

What I have not figured out is
Why we're all scared
What I have not figured out is
Why you're still here

What did I say
What did I do
What can I say to get through
What did I say
What did I do
When I find myself thinking bout me and you

Talking thereafter
Bring it all out
Living life's stumbles
Resolving self doubt

What I have not figured out is
Why we're all scared
What I have not figured out is
Why you're still here

What did I say
What did I do
What can I say to get through
What did I say
What did I do
When I find myself thinking bout me and you

Solo

Violence retired
Just memories in my head
Clear sky came
With everything bled

What I have not figured out is
Why we're all scared
What I have not figured out is
Why you're still here

What did I say
What did I do
What can I say to get through
What did I say
What did I do
When I find myself thinking bout me and you

Track Name: Picture Frame
Picture Frame
(T. Chesal/R. Johnson)

She builds her life with cards
Swims with no regard
No regard to where this breeze will lead

She paints her life in stars
Never really seemed to be that far
From the life she thought she'd lead

Solo

Still remember times of grey
Drink for times of better days
Better days outnumbered

Does she read between the lines these days
It's hard to say, it's hard to say
Or does she read these lines in her own way
It's hard to say, so hard to say

So lets fill our hands with rain
Washed away the better days
Still frames holding memories

Burned the last remains
Holding tight to a picture frame
A picture frame left empty

Does she read between the lines these days
It's hard to say, it's hard to say
Or does she read these lines in her own way
It's hard to say, so hard to say

Solo

Does she read between the lines these days
It's hard to say, it's hard to say
Or does she read these lines in her own way
It's hard to say, so hard to say

Track Name: Inside
Inside
(R. Johnson/M. Smith)

Every new day
Brings a new place
A castle of sand melts to the sea
Emotion earthquake
A tired old face
Be what they wanted him to be

Yeah!
Oh Yeah!

Never a man he fights alone
No one to stop this tragedy
On the outside, looking inside
He sees his problem but he can't see
What's been going on inside of me

What you gonna do
(Inside Out)
When you've got your hands tied
(Inside Out)
How you gonna feel
On the inside

He feels the anger
Buried deeply
He slowly fades into the grey
He knows the burden
Placed upon him
Can he stand to lose another day

What you gonna do
(Inside Out)
When you've got your hands tied
(Inside Out)
How you gonna feel
On the inside

Solo

What you gonna do
(Inside Out)
When you've got your hands tied
(Inside Out)
How you gonna feel
On the inside
What you gonna do
(Inside Out)
When you've got your hands tied
(Inside Out)
How you gonna feel
On the inside

Track Name: Red
Red
(R. Johnson/ M. Smith)

Don't give me your rhyme
Spare me your reason
I've got enough shit inside of my head
I've had enough cold season
If you'd go away I'd be better off

It's OK
My thoughts on display
All so cliche
Covered in red
It seems to me we've only begun
To blame it all on.... red

Lying in wait
Anticipating
First to begin now stuck in between
Maybe its fate
This life is wasting
Feeling so much worse off

It's OK
My thoughts on display
All so cliche
Covered in red
It seems to me we've only begun
To blame it all on.... red
Red

Solo

It's OK
My thoughts on display
All so cliche
Covered in red
It seems to me we've only begun
To blame it all on.... red

Track Name: Shelter
Shelter
(R. Johnson/ T. Chesal/M. Smith)

Understanding is to look for reason
Find the answers and choose to ignore
Switching colors like the changing season
Always makes it hard to figure you out

Sheltering the past
In spite of the future
Dress it up with lies
A tarnished suit that suits her fine

We never cross the growing gap
The space between us growing deeper
Side by each the memories lapse

Sheltering the past
In spite of the future
Dress it up with lies
A tarnished suit that suits her fine

We both lie here
As we lie here to ourselves
This time I'm not giving in, no
Not giving in, no
Not giving in

Solo

Track Name: Lines In Sand
Lines In Sand
(R. Johnson)

Everything that you do
Has a lasting effect on me
Holds me down makes it
Hard to breathe

The evidence is clear
And it's all here
I've got nothing but pity for you

You take life away
Wash blood from my hands
And watch me fade
Like lines in the sand

Holding time gets me through
Watching you step on me
Only see what I
Want to believe

The evidence is clear
And it's all here
I've rejected my pity for you

You take life away
Wash blood from my hands
And watch me fade
Like lines in the sand
Remember me...
In days we will meet again

Solo

I've got nothing!

You take life away...
You take life away
Wash blood From my hands
And watch me fade
Like lines in the sand
Like lines in the sand
