An inconvenient memory lies in your bed, a collapsed star at the center of your head. This world is strange. You can't forget your mistakes under the facade of change. We're worlds apart in philosophy and reason. Here, right is wrong and wrong is treason.
My friend used to tell me about something he calls the "Enter Shikari Effect." Basically, every time you listen to an Enter Shikari song, you like it a little bit more each time until you get to the point where you'll start going "I WANNA LIVE OUTSIDE, LIVE OUTSIDE OF ALL OF THIS" with absolutely… Continue reading Write Tunes – Kidnap Me
It's the same old story, we've been here before. This time it hurts more and it will the next. How many times can you open a wound before it fully heals? Does it ever? So make your own good fortune, be your own god. The bad will still come or not come. Just as the… Continue reading Wild Seed
I'm sure I've talked about how important I think feedback is before, but here I go again, bear with me. I've had a pretty difficult time finding people I trust to read everything I've written and offer me some constructive criticism. On one hand, I totally understand that people have lives of their own that… Continue reading Throw it in Reverse

I see a room full of bodies with mirror faces. It's easy to say that I see myself in you and you, but if my face were a mirror too, what would we see? Two personalities rebounding? Or just one from the beginning? From the start, we were the same. Yet in that infinite reflection,… Continue reading Mirror
Yeah, I know I forgot to post Monday. I suck. In my defense, I was really busy and didn't even have time to think about what to write. I'm still really busy today but I didn't forget this time! So here's a quick one. This song has some fantastic lyrics. Like gives-me-goosebumps lyrics. But it… Continue reading Write Tunes – Grammatology
Doublethink. Not a hypocrite, just unaware of the contradiction. And in that moment when the two ideas collide, you make a significant choice. Neutrality will always be mistaken for complacency.
Happy 4th! Seems kind of bittersweet to celebrate our independence in the midst of the hundreds of questionable decisions made by our current administration. But it's nice to be able to say we still have several freedoms. It feels good to say that. So here's a song that makes me feel really good. Hope you… Continue reading Write Tunes – Rosé & Veuve
