about

The Aether EP was a labor of love.
After a year of steadily writing poems, verses and songs, and having nothing to do with them. I decided to sit down, learn some music theory and actually record, collect, and share them!

It was all recorded in a basement, on the crappiest of hardware.
But despite that, it turned out surprisingly decently.
It might not be good, but it is a promise, to myself, and to others, that I will continue to practice, refine, and hone my skills.
So that one day, I can bring you music that is beautiful.

I hope you enjoy.

Track Name: The Start
So this is how it starts
with some pain and some scars
With dreams that are dark
These beats and these bars
or whatevers handy
Just some artsy white kid
That grew up on Propagandhi
Cash and some Pip Skid
Not particularly wise
But I've seen some sighs
So I'm going to try to share
My stories with care
So perhaps prepare
As the music consumes
Looms and tares me
Relax and breath in air
Lay down in your room
Its been a rough year
I've got a lot to say
If you want to hear
I've got some hope to trade
If you're buying used
Memories abused
Into rhyme schemes
And vocal streams
I'm bursting at the seams it seems

These rhymes that I'm speaking
are the words that've been leaking
Out of my eyes I'm just tweaking
Them into some with meaning
Not just for me
But for all out at sea
Lost in cold memories
and dreams that blow on the breeze
But I hope these tunes
Can bring warmth
like sand dunes
To a cold march

Music well writ
soothes the souls sick
Thanks to it
thing done with a Bic
I'm still alive here
and I hold that dear
please have some faith
I'm still building pace
This song is a mess
like my dreams I guess
But it gets better
I've seen those letters
arranged that way so many times
That I know when they are lying
And I promise that it can
so hold my hand, make a plan
together we can stand

I want to sell me
Without selling a dream
I want to tell freely
without dancing on beams
I want to speak plain
without metaphorical canes
But I hide behind names
and words that sound the same

These rhymes that I'm speaking
are the words that've been leaking
Out of my eyes I'm just tweaking
Them into some with meaning
Not just for me
But for all out at sea
Lost in cold memories
and dreams that blow on the breeze
But I hope these tunes
Can bring warmth
like sand dunes
To a cold march

This has gone on too long
this song is all wrong
I'll try to make this quick
brisk and switch
through tracks which
with luck'll skip
like old disks
Cause see this
isn't what I wish
I don't have the gift
to write a slick
Musical catharsis
That is Carting this
Broken Car of stiffs
To the far off cliffs
So I write on my wrists
I shoot and I miss
So here it is
I'm just an accomplice
To this a wish to be missed
To show other will be too
to ease suffering and sooth
To use this language
to translate my dreams
Into positive things
To walk through life
with a pen not a knife
To write songs
that belong to all in the throng, before their gone.

So speak with a purpose
Cause know it is worth it
To speak plain and clear
but that requires confronting fear
cause it is scary to speak the truth
following your dream and letting loose
Cause dreams are nightmares
that seem light and caring
Till you are staring down
At all you tried to drown
come back around.
Track Name: Acrylic Lyrics
I want to paint 
Over exposed 
City lights faint
With my prose
And my verse
I want to share
My love first
With the air
Then with paper
Then with you
The music intaker
The few
Because in the end
I want you to feel
What I try to send
Will be real


I want to paint 
Over exposed 
City lights faint
With my prose
And my verse
I want to share
My love first
With the air
Then with paper
Then with you
The music intaker
The few
Because in the end
I want you to feel
What I try to send
Will be real

That this gives hope
When that you lack
When night says nope
And your visions black
That my words
Can in an odd way
Be a cure
As daybreak fades
These broken riffs
Unplanned sounds
Can stop a cliff jump
Or sorrows drowned
That my voice
Bad as it is
Can make a choice
To give up pointless

I want to draw
The night sky
What you see 
when you close your eyes
Somewhere safe 
and so alive
The sorta place
Where we can thrive

I want you to see
The message between 
words that flow free
And what i have seen
I created a Picasso
Based off this world 
I perceive like van Gogh
Eyesight swirled
Confused like the night 
Lines pour a fast flow
Quickly take flight
But drift like snow
When i try
To explain
And describe
My plain aim
Try to bare my soul

So please if you can
Bare this with me
I've got no plan
But I’ll try to see
The night beautiful
The mighty dark
And paint in full
With all the stark 
Colors and Contrast 
In Life perils  
So they'll last
Like rose pedals 
Painted in
Lyrical acrylic 
Fill it in
Till it perfect


I want to draw
The night sky
What you see 
when you close your eyes
Somewhere safe 
and so alive
The sorta place
Where we can thrive

I seem to ramble
That’s not true
I just stumble
While walking through 
A straight path
Covered in thorns
My face smacked
scared and worn
But i promise
If you take a good look
In at this
Its an old book
A lil Convoluted
Yet focused 
Words voluted
But I'm just a Poet

So I’m sorry
This isn't clear
The story
If you can hear
Is I'm here
For you out there
Because my fear
Is that you'll tare

I'll paint your face
With colours vivid 
On some lace
That I’ll rivet
To steel bars
Cause your strong
Like godly mars
Yet pretty as dawn
Like airs own song
Track Name: Candles
I try again to fly and send my lies
and then pen my disguise
but die from den inside
my head so my cries
are sent into the skies
So friend please realize
I'm like a french fry
that forgotten will lie

till the end of days
I mend then descend
i fix and fall
Icarus is my model
ridiculous to be tall
lightning hits then splits
your little sick shoddy
sullen Stick of a body

your a wick flickering
out tick tock
shouts the fixed clock
cause you've no more time
to be bought your caught
red handed aflame
draining the pain
leaving you plain

But through all this
We still gotta wish
for something unlikely
like the loch ness
appearing all fresh
Suit and tie all dressed
Ready to take in those with less

So light these candles in the dark
I'm just playing my part
Like the moth to the flame
My life just drains away









"The higher you are the farther your fall"

Every quote means something different when spoke
These aren’t scientific facts
but warnings whispering ways
to withstand highs happiness
holding anything close
That probably the most
depressing thing I wrote
So wash my mouth with soap

Because what were hearing
is supposed to be endearing
Your supposed to leave the fear an
the burning searing
yearning behind your learning
displaying is a danger
a poachers and a ranger
A coach door stranger

To bare your dirt and mud
for others to judge
cause all they see is sludge
not the diamonds in the rough
your not inherently evil
Your like a parent regal
That caught you dating
Someone they be hating

So You're caught between two obligations
stating patience
and logic Should be your object
of desire
Yet the decision is dire
can you afford to wait for the fire
To die down
before you touch down on the ground


So light these candles in the dark
I'm just playing my part
Like a moth to the flame
My life just drains away






"For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction"

To hold something close
is to put something on roast
accepting the fire
that'll burn your desire
Of course This isn't true
But the sky isn't blue
We just perceive it that way
on a bright sunny day

Illusions pursuing
Perusing the ruins
of my mind using
time on their side
knowing if they ride
beside my eyes
long enough I'll find

them as truth
That I was better in my youth
So don’t tell me I’m distant,
don’t tell me I’m cold
Don't yell your wishing
I’m the me of old
I want it too
instead of seeing woven
The views of the life that I’ve chosen
And the loose cobwebs stolen
Into the fabric of my labrat being
Seeing every end lend itself well to a semi-colon
these rolling words unfurled now swirl so look
in the end I am a unfinished book

So light these candles in the dark
I'm just playing my part
Like a moth to the flame
My life just drains away
Through the gutter
My evils splutter
Out of my mind
To make way for something kind

Illusion pursuing and perusing
the cost per using your head
To loosen, move an delusion
Costly situations you read
Track Name: Over
The first date
I saw your face
Lit up in Picture
perfect ways
Hand in hand
No other plans
Just bench seats
And cheap treats
Long walks
By the beach
Red cheeks
We're getting cold
But Bed sheets
Could never hold
Me quite at peace
As your sweet
Warm embrace 
Held in your arms
I'm in the right place
But gosh darn 
It if wasn't 
The wrong time
If we weren't blind
Saying things like

Glowing smiles
You've stunning eyes
Well go miles
Free of disguise 
Run like the Nile
Under starry skies
Say we're in style 
But it seems we lie cause
Tears are dripping
Behind the kissing 
So we are wishing
time wasn't ticking

It isn't over
Nooooo
It isn't over
Nooooo
Just one more day
Just once more say
It isn't over yet

Those night
Under the starlight
Looking up
Counting our luck
The joy of life 
Was dripping ripe
It was right
In front of us
Laying beside
The trees and sky
Lucky to be alive
So we find
Ourselves together
Birds of a feather
Or a jacket leather
Sewn in we line
Patch us on
To each others arm
So we'll never leave
Each others sleeve
Sewn so close
Each others dose
Of medication

These lines
We used to be together but
Now there mine
I wear the fetter uh
Click define
Chains manacles etcetera
Its all fine
Is it though
Cause look here yo
See I ain’t blind
To each to there own though
So lets click rewind

It isn't over
Nooooo
It isn't over
Nooooo
Just one more day
Just once more say
It isn't over yet

We both know
That low and behold 
Sunshine goes
away
I'll tip my hat 
Say good day
As we go 
our separate ways

Cause it's over
Oh
It is over
So
We will go
Our separate ways
We will go
Our separate ways
Track Name: Aether
I want to be alone
Without being lonely
So I’ll jump in a crowd
I'll jump into the sea
Try to relax and respect
Whats in you and me
Cause in our own way
we all want to be alone
Without being lonely

I want to watch
Without having to talk
I'm terrified to be me
I'm scared of what they want to see
Of what comes when
Everything's gone to silence
Its not that i hate people
I'm not quite that violently evil
Its not that I don’t want to talk
I just don't want to do it a lot
Basically its not
Whatever you think it is
So just stop
Because its foolish
To think you understand
A completely different planned
Person that’s hurting
In places you don't have
I'm just being frank
I'm just saying if I sank
You wouldn't know
How my boat
ever stayed afloat

I want to be alone
Without being lonely
So I’ll jump in a crowd
so I'll jump into the sea
Try to relax and respect
Whats in you and me
Cause in our own way
we all want to be alone
Without being lonely

I don't do well at parties
I can barely sleep
Much less eat
Life's not so much a breeze
But leaves in a windtunnel
Spinning at speeds
That are ghastly
But i want to be neat
And just meet 
New folks to greet
Move peoples feet
Be called sweet
But have no one
Notice that I creep
Away from all seats
Into a corner 
And feel like a freak
I can't understand you
But you can't understand me
Because we are two 
Completely different beasts
spinning in space
dreaming in the aether
trying to find a place
to tie and tether
before we tire
of the same weather

I want to be alone
Without being lonely
So I’ll jump in a crowd
so I'll jump into the sea
Try to relax and respect
Whats in you and me
Cause in our own way
we all want to be alone
Without being lonely

I'm scared of crowds
I'm scared by loud
Noises and doubts
I'm scared of being alone
But if you let fear control you
It will strangle and it will hold you
If you let self doubt
Decide what you are about
You'll be never more 
Anything else but or
What you fear they see
But i promise thee
What they think
Can and will shrink
Just blink back fears
But let the tears fall
That is all
Be true to who you are
And you will go so far
Be good to others and to yourself 
And the rest will slowly melt
There will be days
When all we can do
Is scream, ask or pray 
To any and all who
Could save us
But that's enough
That's human
So let walk across the next bend
Hand in hand
and stop trying to defend
where sorrows land
and plan tomorrows person instead
