about

"Inspiration" and "Benediction" both act as a continuation to last year's: "Dedication." Inspiration is a collection of songs heavily inspired by stories and or music with more intricate arrangements. Benediction is a more intimate release than the other 2 EPs with a sense of gospel and worship. Took 5 months to write and record both EPs.

Track Name: The Eagle
There is a boy in New Jersey living his dream
A dream of great ambition, gonna make history
Under the roof of oppression, it’s tearing his wings
It builds him up to break him down
The damage is frightening

You can never take that away from me
I will sound the call of my alliance
Spreading my wings with defiance

I am the eagle
I am the eagle
I’m gonna spread my wings and fly
I am the eagle
I am the eagle
I’m gonna spread my wings and fly

He’s had enough of their games, they never understand
He makes his shot to the sky, draws a line in the sand
Fanning the flame in his soul, he’s powered by the fire
Falls to the ground, back up again
He’s ready to inspire

You can never take that away from me
I am gonna be who I want me to be
I will make my stand, begin my flight
I will set my course make my mark
Illuminating my soul in the dark

I am the eagle
I am the eagle
I’m gonna spread my wings and fly
I am the eagle
I’m gonna spread my wings and fly

There is a boy in New Jersey, living his dream

He is the eagle
I am the eagle
You are the eagle
We are the eagles
Now go and spread your wings and fly to the sky
Track Name: Candlelight
A new life begins you build a dynasty
In time it will grow it’s only destiny
You pour all you have in the fire
And take your hands and build your empire

This fire that your burning it blazes in the night sky
It’s everything that you’ve done from your heart and mind
And when the day comes for you to say your last goodbye
Who is gonna keep the candlelight burning bright?

A new life begins I am your son
You carried me until I could walk, I’ve only just begun
This throne that you’ve built we make our own
We only have each other, we are never alone

This fire that we’re burning it blazes in the night sky
It’s everything that we’ve done from our heart and mind
And when the day comes for you to say your last goodbye
I promise I will keep the candlelight burning bright

Burning, burning bright

A new life begins you are my son
Our flame will ignite the souls of everyone

This fire that we’re burning it blazes in the night sky
It’s everything that we’ll do from our heart and mind
And when the day comes for me to say my last goodbye
Promise you will keep the candlelight burning bright
Track Name: Ghost (Anyone Here)
The cloudy sky is coming out
The pouring rain is falling down
The sky is sad, so very sad like me
Unemployed with little cash
The money I have will never last
Its running out somebody help me out

I need help
I just need a hand
I just need a hand

Is it out of reach, out of reach
Is it far away, far away
Can I seem to grasp at anything
Is there somebody, somebody
Is there anyone, anyone
That can hear me anywhere at all
Is there anyone here, or is it just a ghost

The pouring rain is pouring down
With dreadful thoughts that make em frown
Im very blue, so very blue you see
I was in love with the girl of my dreams
But she wasn't ready not ready for me
So I start to cry because I really liked her

I'm alone
I just need a friend
I just need a friend
Track Name: I'm Ok You're Ok
Got ourselves on the wrong foot
Our words took a turn for the worst
Every little thing that we mistook
Our bubbles have started to burst

Oh oh I wanna know
If your ok, If your ok
I, I, I wonder why
I need a sign, I need a sign
So tell me that you're ok, you're ok
Oh you should know
That I'm Ok, If you're Ok

We're the Jack and Rose on a stage
Can the crying turn back to a laugh
Can we start again on a new page
When you meet me in the aftermath

Oh oh I say so
Let me know, I wanna know
Yeah, yeah, say it now
Say it, say it, say it, oh year
Track Name: The Girl Who Waited
Day by day she slips away through the cracks in the wall
(every) night and night she begins to cry for a voice so still and small
Praying he’d be by her side at the corner of her eye
And find comfort in the air when she looks up to the sky

So she waits
She waits besides the door
Hoping he would sweep her off her feet
And give her something more
Like show her the stars
From earth to mars
Give her every reason to believe
What her heart is longing for
So she waits

Time and time has passed her by she’s in her hiding place
(for) Years and years lost in her tears that are streaming down her face
Praying he’d find her again to take away the pain
And find shelter in his arms and the hope that will regain

You don't have to wait anymore

Day by day she’s far away, as an author as she writes
(every) phrase and word to the afterward, there is passion in her cries
Praying he’d read the final page so he can come back home
And take her by the hands and never be alone

You don’t have to wait anymore
Track Name: Deity
Don't say goodnight, don't be afraid
I only want the you you always are
Never look away
You and your troubled world will lead you to nothing
The beauty in your eyes please come and stay

Be still and know

Look and see the bloody holes through my hands
The blood I shed is the blood I lost for you
The eyes and the face and the lips their all red and black
The scales on your eyelids
And the black heart will fall through
Track Name: Thoughts of Mine
Regretting everything
I always try to run and have no worry
I can't erase the pain in me
The thoughts of mine will always stay in me

But when I lift my eyes I see
The beauty of your majesty

I see your face tonight
And it's so beautiful
Your forgiveness forever plentiful
I hear your name tonight
And you are here
You're all I need
And I'll have no fear

The thoughts of mine will stay in me
With agonizing pain with no mercy
I'm falling down on my knees
I need your love I need your calling
Track Name: Honor
This is a song to honor Jesus
This is a song to honor God
This is a song to honor everything He's done
This is a song to honor Jesus

And I lift my voice, to worship you
And I lift my eyes, when I gaze upon you
And lift my hands to the sky
Glory to your name on high
This is a song to honor Jesus
Track Name: Lost (Take Me Home)
Lost, I’m lost again
No need to pretend
I’m lost at sea
I’m drifting far out from the clearing
Will you be the light for me?

If I forget where you are
Will you light up my stars
So I can come back home
And embrace you in my arms
I’ve lost my way and need you everyday
Will you take my hand and take me home
Please take my hand and take me home

Blind, I can’t see straight
No need to exaggerate
No map to read
Or compass to use when I’m out to sea
Will you be the sight for me?

Will you be the light?
Will you be the sight?
Will you be the guide?
Will you be by my side?

I will not forget where you are
When you light up my stars
Now I can come back home
And embrace you in my arms
I’ve found my way
And I need you everyday
Please take my hand and take me home

No, not lost again
No need to pretend
Track Name: Amazing Grace
Amazing grace
How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost
But now I'm found
Was blind but now I see
Track Name: Always Waiting
Oh, I'm always waiting
For you to carry me
Oh, I'm always waiting
For you to rescue me
Track Name: Rise
I faced my darkness it made me sick
I drink to get my courage up
Trying to forget it
I can’t let go the thoughts in my head
I don’t know why I can’t comprehend
I sleep to run away, it makes me safe
These dreams turn into nightmares
I’m starting to loose faith
But in the darkest of my dreams
A still small voice whispers so softly

(he said)
Rise to the sunrise
Rise up to the sky
Wave the past goodbye
Now it’s time to rise
Hands up to the sky
Stand up on your feet
Live your life and know you are not alone

I tasted bitterness, and it was sour
Chaos and the sirens kept creeping ever hour
But in the mist of all these crazy times
A still small voice whispers in the light

I’m alone and wake to mourning
And my words keep failing me
All I need is a melody
I close my eyes
All I see are shadows all around me
But your voice is my remedy
Now come before you all
I have risen from the fall
