about

My fourth album...

After I released Sands of Time, the sands of my hour glass really began flowing faster than they ever have. After 2014 began I found myself rushing toward major events in my life. I performed to a great crowd in San Francisco and sold over half my stock. I got married to my best friend, most staunch supporter and ego-evener. My first three albums were released within a year and 2 months. I attempted many things but I can only rearrange tracks so many times...

I kept writing, kept producing, my time became squeezed further and I started pondering how much society influences our lives. The title track was borne out of a frustration of a society that failed and I found that the songs I'd been writing over 2014 were all meditating around that subject.

I've started going out to ask others to assist me, and I think it has improved my music in ways I couldn't have imagined. This will not be my last full length, but I hope that the songs in here can last you, my fans, for awhile. Thank you, as always, for your support. I think I'm gonna start calling you the Wolf Pack. You always stick with me, even back when I knew way less about being good than I do now. ;-)

Happy listening, enjoy.

Track Name: Find the Light
Even as time flows by
Like a river to your eye
Seize the moment, never let it lie
All the people in your life

A small tear on a desert sand
Still waters the land

Every thread in every cloth in every quilt in every bed
Without them all there would be nowhere to rest my head
See the light glow through the fog of every day in everyway
Never give up cause you're the one that keeps me sane

The pulse of the earth
a trllion beating hearts
A rhythm to which we all subscribe
The drum we march to in our lives

But you're...


You are like no one else
Don't be so hard on yourself
You're a beacon hope, A light in the dark
On every journey you embark

Even when pressure surrounds
Breaking down everyone around
There is light within us all
To guide us if we stand tall
Track Name: Feeling Lost (ft. Rockin' Brony)
Am I lost?
I feel crushed
Oceans of pressure, drowning in the deep
In my dreams
I'm lost in the trees
Petrified like the memories that I keep

Trapped in a cage of my own
Bought by money I still owe
It's not enough we have to pay
For a game we don't want to play

You need this
While I need that
They would sell us air if it were bad
We can't take anymore
We need to settle the score
They put their guns to our heads and tell us we should be glad

Trapped in a cage of my own
Bought by money I still ow e
It's not enough that we buy in
We need to drown while we grin

We've had enough we take the blame
We've had enough of this game
That we're all made to play
Track Name: Tied at Zero (ft. Insanefoo)
We've all heard the story
Of how our friends change
They aren't the same
Refuse to play the game
We make them feel ashamed
And we keep them chained

To what we think they are
A title and nothing more
Their station raises the bar
But they aren't keeping score

Is there ever a special case
When someone wins the race
Didn't know they even entered
So they get called self-centered
But friends should know more than the name
See past the barbed-wire walls of shame

They're still the same
Don't wanna play the game
But we keep them chained

To what we think they are
A title and nothing more
Their station raises the bar
But they aren't keeping score

So you think that you can take
Everything as it is today
x3
So you think you can take
Everything away and make it

To what we think they are
A title and nothing more
Their station raises the bar
But they aren't keeping score

What if we all made mistakes
We're mortal, can't catch no breaks
So we need to remember more than the name
No one is just those walls of shame
They are more than
What we think they are
Not just a title, they're more
Their station isn't a bar
And they aren't keeping score

They are what they are
Not just a title, they're more
Their station isn't a bar
And they aren't keeping score

[Solo]
Track Name: Thrown to the Wolves
Clear out your lungs
The first voice that you find
They try to force us, to the rungs of
the ladder they say to climb
So we find ourselves so tightly strung
'cause we're walking blind
So we discover, as we get older
That all we can do is grind

They're rich and, we're poor but

All the times we all wanted to give up
Yet we pushed each other on through
Life and lies, the greed and corruption
The unseen wolves inside too

Be you, they say
As they smooth your wrinkles out
You know it's bullshit, but you take it
You only know how to be devout
They taught you well, though you're in hell
You feel that you can't tell
Everyone knows how the tale goes
Until the cracks start to show

They're rich and, we're poor but

All the times we all wanted to give up
Yet we pushed each other on through
Life and lies, the greed and corruption
The unseen wolves inside

If we could turn back time
Could we make everything fine?
Unify the shards in our minds?
Is there a hope that we can in our lives
See the selfish be denied?
Track Name: Self-Doubt
Up on the stage
Lights shine bright
There's a sudden silence
Eyes dilate
Heart accelerates
A war begins in your conscience
Feel all the stakes
Pound in your veins
Feel that you can't do this
It's all in your mind
Your pride
Push back and go without it

Put trust, in those, all who care about you
You must, realize, that you will criticize
Yourself, so much, no praise wil be enough
Look deep, and find, the greatness that you hold inside

PRove to yourself, not anyone els e
You're great in their eyes, don't deny they love you
Unravel the doubt, throw it out, don't keep it about
Light the fireworks, explode in the air, another moment of glory
Track Name: Want to Fly (ft. Pettanko Princess)
I want to feel the wind blow
My mane fast as I can go
I want my dreams to come true
High altitudes chill me through
I swear that I can feel the sand
Of time flying faster than I can

So I just want to fly
Have azure fill my eyes

I shrug my shoulders
Hoping my wings will set me free
As I grow older
There's only one thing I want to be
Flying through the skies

It's been so many years rr
each time I try it ends in tears
I want to feel like other pegasi
Have the wind keep my face dry

And I still want to fly
Have pure azure fill my eyes

I shrug my shoulders
Hoping my wings will set me free
As I grow older
There's only one thing I want to be
Flying through the skies

Some day before I die
I simply want to find
A way to satisfy
What's always on my mind
And if I can't rise
Becuase of my wing's size
Can I pay some price?
And just reroll the dice?
So I can have my chance to fly
Track Name: The Dragonspeaker
Restlessly I lay awake
Through mental tension and noise
With every step I take
I don't feel I have a choice

Please come, take me
I want to see

My dreams inside my head
I want my mind to be still
Is it becuase the life I've lead
I've seen so many killed

Far from home...

I follow the voices I hear
Flung back over a thousand years
Can I change the flow of time
So dragons can again fill the sky

Dreams, dreams
echoes echoes
whispers
madness
Track Name: Hunter (ft. Mirisha)
All alone again. My thoughts stray.
A thousand hours inside of this room
Thousands with nothing left to decay
I'm the hero... so they assume

I try to stoke the fire
Of my soul when I’m alone
but I’m the adopted daughter
With nowhere left to call my home
But I am my own…

I always pursue my missions. Revenge is the path I know
But the times in between when I’m in wait… That’s where I drown in sorrow

I try to stoke the fire
Of my soul when I’m alone
but I’m the adopted daughter
With nowhere left to call my home
But I am my own…
Track Name: Ignorant Side
These are the things I no longer wish to understand.
The blood on my hands, shaking with rage at life taken away.
You know what they say? It's part of life in this land.
I try to stand, my legs buckle despite my wish to be gone.

The crimson turns to ichor, crawling up my arms to my head.
The knowledge of the dead, the living tossed aside.
And I, inside feel innocence giving in to my dread.
The horrors unsaid. The victims of my ignorant side...

Bodies controlled by others are dying, Victims of a culture of lying
Led to the water, forced to drink, finding the poison, we find that link
Cognitive Dissonance so out of sync, shouting so loud that you can't think
The opposing thoughts, voices and methods, they cancel out so it seems silent instead.

Exhausted, what I know reaches my neck.
The air becomes thick, with the thoughts of my own
Filled with regret, regret, regret, regret, regret
Paralyzing my soul, I can't forget.
My head is now red, with the blood from my hands.
Collapsed in the corner. See all that's left
My brain soaked in death. It's all subtle theft.

It was so much simpler then.
Back before I bore the sin.
Mislead to think I had no hand
In the things I can't forget I know and understand
