"My Violent Heart" is a cover song, originally by the band Nine Inch Nails. Trent Reznor, who pretty much "is Nine Inch Nails," is a huge influence on me, so my friend Chris and I did a cover of it in May 2009. The other songs are unmastered instrumental demos of material that I have recorded over the past few months.


released June 26, 2010

Track Name: My Violent Heart
You and I we may look the same
But we are very far apart
There's bullet holes where my compassion used to be
And there is violence in my heart
Into fire you can send us
From the fire we return
You can label us a consequence
Of how much you have to learn

You can try but you'll never understand
This is something you will never understand
Can you hear it now?
Hear it coming now?
Can you hear it now?

On hands and knees
We crawl
You can not stop us all
Our bones
Our skin
We will not let you in

You have set something in motion
Much greater than you've ever known
Standing there in all your grand naïveté
About to reap what you have sown
Time will feed upon your weaknesses
And soon you'll lose the will to care
When you return to the place that you call home
We will be there
We will be there

On hands and knees
We crawl
You can not stop us all
Our blood
Will stay
We will not go away
On hands and knees
We crawl
You can not stop us all
Our blood
Our grace
Will never leave this place
