After a long pause in composing, I took my day offs and rested my ears from the overstrain that I had caused by forcing myself to compose music. I realized the fact that it isn't about building your song library to brag about, it's about expressing yourself through music, putting feeling into the airwaves that one calls music.

The album goes through my memories and takes little bits and pieces from everywhere, binding them all together and distorting them a little. It's a nice little trip inside my thoughts.

We all can change our lives to be the way we want it to be

we just need to take that leap, take those first baby steps towards a goal, a thing we crave for and want to accomplish in this life that we're living in.

when we get to that goal or accomplishment it changes our lives a bit towards the way we want them to be

I know life isn't always sunshine and happy thoughts, but I know the balance between happiness and sadness is out there

we just need to reach for it, find it and keep it forever in our hearts

locked away

so we'll never ever return to that sadness again
