    for 3 years now i've been working hard to get this record finished. what you are about to listen to took a little longer than expected to complete but i think it was well worth the wait. this record is something i've never tried to do before and not sure if i will attempt it again. each instrument was played by friends who i know and respect very deeply. please seek them out and tell them what you think of their musical impression on this record. below is a list of everyone involved in the making of this album.

about

There have been a few nights where I woke up and wasn't able to move. Never thought I would write about it till I heard this sample. Even talked two friends into writing a verse to open the song.

lyrics

Blocked out

247 verse 2
It's the same, recurring dream on a night like this
Eyes are wide open
My hands make fist
I struggle to lift
Plus it's trouble to get
Breath, into my body but I smuggle a bit
Snuggled against another silhouette undercover
My body, doesn't listen try to scream at the other
Person, beside me but its like I've been smothered
Each cry goes unheard words serge won't submerge
Stuck,
Can't,
Sit up,
Don't freak
Out
Need to keep my mind distant from doubt
Know it's just another dream but can't exit this rout
Hard to breath my arteries are bargaining with the lungs
And my heart slowing pass cause my breath has been non
Want to wake but the toucher just continues for fun
Lying hear seeing the ceiling while my soul loses light
Sort of like I'm isolated to rid the body of life

Hook
The sounds are in my head
I can't hear what is said
