Freedom 03:45
What a show every night They stole and everyone's lying The left side, the right side We should cross the ocean You feed more modesty Looks like a burial ground A burial every night, they're outside Where's our freedom No stars align Where's our freedom Outside is the worst side Don't know freedom It's all a mistake The left side, the right side (Where'd our freedom go) No side Guess they don't feel any shame They turned us all into the same thing They turned us into a flood A burial every night Hysteria every night, there's no side Where's our freedom It's all a mistake Don't know freedom Outside is the worst side Where's our freedom (Where'd our freedom go) No side is the best side Where's our freedom outside The left side, the right side No side Yeah (Where's our freedom) (Where'd our freedom go) Prepare for the storm A knock at your door And you don't know It's pitiful your denial To be just a stone Right down to each of your bones The left side, the right side No side is safe Hysteria every night A burial every night A period they deny They're outside Don't know freedom (Where'd our freedom go) Where's our freedom (Where'd our freedom go)

Underwater 03:50
Can’t look away They’re everywhere in my eyes Don’t look away They’re in my window Don’t miss the way Unless you want them to hold me down In my mind I lost the way They’re everywhere in my mind Can’t look away They stare in my window Don’t look away Is this holy They hold me down Underwater They hold me down In my eyes I miss the way They’re everywhere in my eyes Don't look away They live in my window I miss the way Is this holy They hold me down Is this the way They’re stuck in my mind I missed the way They’re in my window Don't look away Is this holy They hold me down Underwater They hold me down Underwater Hold me down Underwater Hold me down Hold me down Down Hold me down Hold me down Hold me down Underwater

Animals 03:12
I can feel them watching Don’t think we can side with love again I think the world wants us to blow up ourselves and try again I know we can be strong I know we can be animals I know we can be fools I know what we can be What are you waiting for (Gonna find our way) This is going nowhere we’re still fighting with ourselves again (Find our way) Just throw them over board and let them drown in the waves again I know we can be strong (Find our way) I know we can be animals (Get out of my way) I know we can be fooled I know we can be I know we can be animals (Get outta my way) I know we can be strong Yeah (Find our way) They've got eyes on you (Yeah) (Find our way) I know we can be strong (Yeah) I know we can be strong (Find our way)

You did it before and no one stopped you they watched you Just kill them softly before we let them walk through you There’s an inner circle for anyone who can pay you You did it before and no one stopped you What do you want from me Do you feel them they’ve got their arms all around you They’ll take you down They’ll leave you cold and they’ll destroy you You feel naked They did it before and they’ll do it again They’ll break your door down, they have to It feels like they always win They got you What do you want from me Go to the side Nothing feels right Can’t decide What feels right Go to the side Don’t want to fight They’re stealing more than they have to If you see them murder then what will you do This shit’s getting real The system’s over and broken down What do you want from me

Can you feel it on the shore The city is burning down Every man is for himself You see how the truth bleeds (Die young) God I don’t know (Get old) Looks like a dead sea (Die young) Not that long ago I watched your eyes touch the flame (Die young) Bet you don’t want to know how much no one gives a damn (Hurts so bad I want you to know) Disappearing (Hurts so bad where did you go) Disappearing I’m all out of energy (Die young) Just don’t fall in love Just a muddy shore Show me you a give a damn anymore (Die young) Just show me the way To see another child (Hurts so bad where did you go) Does love mean anything anymore (Hurts so bad I want you to know) (Die young) Dystopian days with me (Get old) Dystopian days with me (Die young) Disappear on the muddy shore The stains of blood everywhere The spies and enemies they look just like you and me (Hurts so bad I want you to know) Dystopian days with me (Hurts so bad where did you go) (Die young) Come get lost with me In dystopian days with me Not so long ago you stayed and fell in love with me (Hurts so bad I want you to know) (Hurts so bad where did you go) (Die young)

Be The Flame 05:02
I miss the world we had I miss the beauty before Just maybe We walked the earth with dinosaurs Like a flame at the shore Love’s weighted down Mothers and sisters should rule and crown the world Used to be the flame We used to be the flame China stole all the lives and drugs And beat up minds in the psycho ward You have to be there to find out what they have in store We used to be the flame Used to be the spark It’s time to show them who’s in charge of it all Testimony you try To light the candle that shows How much you wanted to end the world and start a war She’s a single force She’s got hate on her side She wants to end the world And be the flame Won’t you be the flame Start a war Be the flame Won’t you be the flame Be the flame Try to go Be the flame (Why’d you go) Be the flame Wont you be the flame Be the flame Why’d you go Why’d you flee Be the flame Won’t you be the flame

Runaway 02:39
I’ve given up on what the world would say I’ve given up on so much Lots of ways to pay them Get up in the morning like a butterfly Leaves have fallen down I give them what they came for then Runaway You end up in a hole What’s the point anyway I give my soul to everything Lots to fix here I‘ve given up on who the world would save Get me out of here I’ve given up I watch you Runaway Wrong way I feel them over me I feel them over me I feel you judging me I feel them all I’ve given up so why’d you want to stay I’ve given up I watch you Runaway You’ve given up so won’t you try and stay You’ve given up You find out they Runaway
9.
You can’t save me Heaven forgive me Something feels so wrong Light a match so you’ll see That’s a bullet with me If heaven exists I don’t give a damn Kill them every moment You kill them and walk away Kill them every morning Every single day I’m sick of all the bullshit All we left were stains You kill them every morning Silently you walk away All the clouds are cornering me Slowly break free Take pills for the pain All the world wants from me When there’s so much damn misery I’ve fallen down Where’s the love Is that so wrong And kill them every moment Kill them and walk away You kill them every morning Every single day I’m sick of all the bullshit All we left were stains You kill them every morning Silently you walk away You kill them every morning Silently you walk away

about

Dystopian Days is available now~I'm thrilled you're here and I can't wait for you to listen to these songs I worked on throughout the last year and a half.

With the oddities surrounding the world, I felt compelled to write a new record inspired by the often dystopian look of America. I don't want to say too much about the inspiration because I want you to have your own unique experience while listening to this collection of songs. This record has been a truly cathartic and wonderful experience and a huge thanks to the musicians who helped me bring this record to life.

If you can, I'd suggest listening to the record with headphones on so you can truly submerge yourself into the music. I hope you love this record and please share it and let me know what you think. Peace and Love, Eddie

Thanks so much!
