about

when time is going slowly
you want it to end
just a couple more hours just a few more minutes
stuck within the bounds of the earth
in agony
in perpetual hell in what feels like an eternity

when you forget about time
a glimpse of the divine through art
a conversation with a friend
no thought of an end
a brief moment away from the mess
a heavenly feeling
i could do this for the rest of eternity

during a period in my life when i experienced much angst and uncertainty, music was a way for me to enter into the heavenly realm and into peace. by listening, engaging and creating music i forgot about my troubles, and the art could take me away from my anxieties, if only for a second. this album is a collection of songs that i poured my heart into during that time. it is a reflection of my depressive state. but its result is a peaceful interlude. there is a pulse throughout the album, an in and out, a back and forth of being stuck in hell and being raised up to heaven. through this journey, i discovered that the joy of heaven is not just in the afterlife; rather, it is here now.

she is not far away
she is with us now

on earth as it is in heaven

Track Name: breathe
she is here to carry us above the water
breathe in
breathe out
it's the simplest way to know i'm not alone
nothing makes sense anymore
the humidifier is empty
the sun is blinding
the floor gives way
falling through
nothing is still anymore
breathe out
breathe in
Track Name: my hollow core
my hollow core
the empty middle
space
i have lost my interests
i have lost my job
these weak progressions have no resolution
the image inside my head has no edges
encompassing
swallowing
Track Name: ascending and descending
Jacob left Beersheba and set out for Harran. When he reached a certain place, he stopped for the night because the sun had set. Taking one of the stones there, he put it under his head and lay down to sleep. He had a dream in which he saw a stairway resting on the earth, with its top reaching to heaven, and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it. There above it stood the Lord, and he said: “I am the Lord, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac. I will give you and your descendants the land on which you are lying. Your descendants will be like the dust of the earth, and you will spread out to the west and to the east, to the north and to the south. All peoples on earth will be blessed through you and your offspring. I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.”
When Jacob awoke from his sleep, he thought, “Surely the Lord is in this place, and I was not aware of it.” He was afraid and said, “How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God; this is the gate of heaven.”
Track Name: open for interpretation
no lyrics
Track Name: leaking faucet
cobweb basement door
cellar cinderblock nook
greasy watch your step floor
faucet without a sink
unfamiliar yoga treatment
musty pulses
in and out pills and relaxant
dusty overtones
a breeze through the cracks
a sliver of light reveals the particles
a shadow of night conceals the obsticles

i'm shaking cold in the basement
Track Name: the holy ghost in my bedroom
even when I make my bed in hell, he is with me
all around
swallowed up

god help me
Track Name: uncertainty
unresolved chords empathize
crash-landing distraction
seconds pass
uncertainty remains
the foundation is crumbling
it's a 10,000 dollar fix at least
don't be anxious about anything

even though i'm drowning
she'll carry me above
i'll still be able to

breathe
