Camren Luster Powerful vocals packed with soul and conviction laid on top of driving, energetic instrumentals make this EP just as powerful as it is beautiful. Favorite track: Distance.

Zachary Cunningham Quite possibly the best thing to come out of Clarksburg/Bridgeport for its genre. Highly recommend this EP to anyone and have been doing so. You guys are gonna go as far as your ambition takes you. I have all the faith in the world in you guys. Favorite track: Lost & Found.

Track Name: Closure
[Son]
I have have lost all sense of time
Lie awake as sunset prepares the night
Sent letters home, with no return
This place has left me alone

I fear a change
Yet the seasons, they stay the same
Cold inside, I breath
Freezing alone, not afraid..

[Father]
I gave my son a gun, and pushed him out the door
I gave my only son a gun, and sent him off to war.

[Son]
Nature makes its way to life
I see morning pierce it's way through night
Gunfire at my feet, I fear for my life
I know you don't believe, but I chose to be here

No return call home
No life left to live
I will die in this place
Alone

I left letters under my bed
Hoping it would replace the memories in your head
Remember me the way I was, not the way I want you to forget.

[Father]
My sorrow will never end
And my life may never change
But I know you're in a better place

I gave my son a gun, and pushed him out the door
I gave my only son a gun, and sent him off to war.
Track Name: Blissful Ignorance
I can't believe that you're gone
The lullaby still plays inside my head...

People never change
We simply find ourselves
Who are you to judge me?
I can do that for myself

The many that I used to know and love
Dwindled to the few that I could trust
I can't handle falling apart again

I hate the man that I've become
It's the innocence I miss (x2)

Give it one last touch
Just to feel the contour
Of your puzzled life
Before you found the light

Give it one last glance, so you don't forget
No never forget that blissful ignorance

I lost myself before I knew who I was
If I remember now, maybe later I'll forget

Do you remember the days when you couldn't care less?
Because you didn't want to, because you didn't have to

Sometimes I hate the man that I've become
It's the innocence inside that I miss (x2)

Give it one last touch
Just to feel the contour
Of your puzzled life
Before you found the light

Give it one last glance, so you don't forget
The light that you found in that blissful ignorance

I will never forget
Never forget
Never forget
NEVER FORGET..

I still can't believe that you're gone
The lullaby keeps playing in my head...
Track Name: Lost & Found
I grow each day
I am strong, I am brave
if I stay here it's quiet
if I stay it's safe

This house is old
the staircase, it creaks
but it gives me a sign
at least a warning

I gasp for air, something I can't afford
If I lose it all, then what have I worked for?
perspiration, I feel it setting in
A heat wave nothing short of freezing

My dreams will go far
at least that is what I think
but for now
I must live through this pain
just one more day

My dreams will go far
at least that's what I think
but for now
I must live through this pain
just one more day (x3)

I feel a breath on my shoulder
with no words to say
and I hear nothing but silence
because the pain is deafening to me

My dreams will go far
at least that is what I think
but for now
I must live through this pain
just one more day

My dreams will go far
at least that's what I think
but for now
I must live through this pain
just one more day

I write notes to myself everyday
hoping that I can forget the life that I'm living
just to tell myself things will be okay
because today..
I make the first decision I've ever made

Bruised and beat I leave this place
these scars are who I used to be..
Track Name: Distance
You somehow found your way back to me
Disoriented and confused, but are you really happy?

So take my hand and guide me
Give me a reason to stay
Please don't look the other way

Distance is a void never filled
An adventure for the thoughts inside my head
A battle inside we can't rebuild
Until one day our mind finds us again

Well I can see the sun, over mountain tops
So cut the rope and leave me lost at sea

Sleep, something I can't escape
My mid weary and disconnected
Lost at sea or in my head?
Not sure where I'm supposed to be

Put my mind to the side
Filled what's left with common sense
Fit the pieces back together
I stay to remember what is left

Always think with your heart
Regardless what the mind tells you is wrong (x2)

Forced my self to stand aside
I give everything just to live my life
Oh, just to live my life

A hope, a dream, I live a lie
My heart beating, as my veins run dry

Distance is a void never filled
An adventure for the thoughts inside my head
A battle inside we can't rebuild
Until one day our minds find us again

I can see the sun, over mountain tops
So cut the rope and let me fade away

Move forward now, but there's danger ahead
I'm not sure if ill see you again
But hold my memory close to heart
Watch as the person I was falls apart

Cut the rope and leave me lost at sea
(x2)
Cut the rope and watch me fade away

I can see the sun...

I can see the sun, over mountain tops
So cut the rope and let me fade away

I can see the sun, over mountain tops
So cut the rope and leave me lost at sea....
