Visions is the first single off of the debut EP, "A Dream Occurred".



I'm hopeless
I'm broken
I'm formless
With no function
I'm searching
For purpose, but
My failures
Make efforts worthless
My worries turn to fears
My courage yields to tears
Head hurts from bumping ceilings
Constantly numbing me no longer hungry
Feelings are obsolete
But my need is absolute
Like falling out the sky with a broken string
On my parachute

Im in need of a lifeline

Visions seen clearly
But fade away before manifesting

Life in a labyrinth
So I have a habit
Of second guessing
And back tracking
Moving haphazardly
Plus I pack baggage
This path's unfamiliar
And very attractive
But looks can kill ya
Appearance is flawed
Legit from a distance
A classic mirage
Have I been here before?
A question worth asking
(What the hell happened?)
Hand me life's manual
I need new tactics.

I'm gambling, all in
My life depends
This moment
I stare up at you
I care only to
Take you down
You dormant,
Built for nothing
As the sun is tucking
My heart is jumping
At the thought of seeing you fall

I'm in need of a lifeline

Visions seen clearly
But fade away before manifesting
