I’ve been taking the elixir, Sam My day to day is getting out of hand A good reason to let go and detach From getting beaten down by the man Blue hands, no air, got questions, don’t ask Kept on moving with my foot on the gas Making noise for the hell of it To be silenced again We can make it Even if it hurts – we can make it outside of this We can make it work, even if it hurts We can make it outside of this There was something in the mission then A new label with an interest man Advanced paper with a stacked contract A few years later with a heart attack A new agent, tour circuit – hit the road so fast A ticking time bomb, it blew in a flash Never knew what to make of it We can make it Even if it hurts – we can make it outside of this We can make it work, even if it hurts We can make it outside of this We can make it Even if it hurts – we can make it outside of this We can make it work, even if it hurts We can make it outside of this

I’ll give in when I need it I’ll know when I feel it Bound for nowhere usually Live my life so freely I’m running away, bound for nowhere I’m running away, bound for nowhere I’m running away, bound for nowhere I’m running away, bound for nowhere I know what you’re feeling I notice when you’re leaving Bound for nowhere usually Live your life without me I’m running away, bound for nowhere I’m running away, bound for nowhere I’m running away, bound for nowhere I’m running away, bound for nowhere Bound for nowhere Bound for nowhere

Use me for later, I don’t care when You’re always instigating, I know you’ll do it again Screwed like a lightbulb, I know that you’ll choose them You’re always instigating, I know you’ll do it again Used all your favors, Now you gotta pretend That I am your savior, Your only friend Use me for later, I don’t care when You’re always instigating, I know you’ll do it again ( I know ) Oh, are you the one now, baby? I need to know Use me for later I wanna give in Just tell me what to do now And I’ll do it I can’t remember, but I know it was them Just use me for later, again and again

Hold on, stay in control There’s a reason, life comes and it goes Make your way – live, grow, and get old Don’t let automation take over your soul Listen to yourself Let your heart melt Listen to yourself every day 1… 2… 3... Every day Every day... Hold on, stay in control There’s a reason, life comes and it goes Make your way – live, grow, and get old Don’t let automation take over your soul Listen to yourself Let your heart melt Listen to yourself every day 1… 2… 1... 2... Every day Every day...

Washed out memories fade I feel our chemistry changing Don’t know who’s to blame The truth shows in our behavior Washed out memories fade I feel our chemistry changing Don’t know who’s to blame The truth shows in our behavior Watched our memories fade It’s true I was losing my faith Don’t know how we’ll make it If I knew I would do it today Washed out memories fade I feel our chemistry changing Don’t know who’s to blame The truth shows in our behavior Washed out memories fade I feel our chemistry changing Don’t know who’s to blame The truth shows in our behavior Chemistry changing… Chemistry changing… Chemistry changing… Chemistry changing…. Washed out memories fade I feel our chemistry changing Don’t know who’s to blame The truth shows in our behavior Washed out memories fade I feel our chemistry changing Don’t know who’s to blame The truth shows in our behavior Memories fade...

Saw you on a Sunday night Hadn’t seen that look in a while Lately you’ve been so far away Girl, this is something we should try I believe, I believe – time’s on our side I know I see something I like I believe, I believe – I was out of my mind I can see, I can see – you’re something I like Please, let it be, I was running inside – loaded desire Please, set me free, Give me time, let me fly – loaded desire Please, let it be, There’s a hunger inside – loaded desire Off the ferry, now to the train Don’t think that I can change your mind Lately you’ve been calling my name Girl, I wish that we could rewind I can see, I can see – the light in your eyes I know you see something you like I believe, I believe time's on our side I received, I received one of the signs Please, let it be, I was running inside – loaded desire Please, set me free, Give me hope, give me time – loaded desire Please, let it be, There’s a hunger inside – loaded desire

There it goes I’ve never lost my head I think I know myself A lifestyle It felt sincere I really want to know I’m feeling so at home I really like it I think I’ll walk away Pretend I wasn’t there We never noticed it Always in your head There we go We really lost ourselves We could have used some help To better fight it Caught in our soul A meaning of its own A feeling in itself A lifestyle I think I’ll walk away Pretend I wasn’t there We never noticed it Always in your head Feeling so content Living without a care We never noticed it They put it in our head A lifestyle we never wanted A lifestyle, something they thought of A lifestyle, who did the numbers? A lifestyle we never wanted A lifestyle we never wanted A lifestyle, something they thought of A lifestyle, who did the numbers? A lifestyle we never... I think I’ll walk away Pretend I wasn’t there We never noticed it Always in your head Feeling so content Living without a care We never noticed it They put it in our head

Mother... 03:20
Mother thought to change my name The portions on my plate Slowly take a piece of my soul The attitude has changed In disguise, the worst came The feeling of control Locked away a note to myself The honesty of the page The honesty of the page The honesty of the page Mother thought to change my name The portions on my plate Slowly take a piece of my soul The attitude has changed

If I never go, I guess that it's useless to pretend Painting a picture, to later destroy it again I never exposed what I really meant The more that you know, the more I forget, that it's useless Painting that picture again Oh – baby, don't feel alone Lovers get lost, but just know I'm on my way home again I'm on my way home again Oh – baby, don't let me go It's never that easy, I know I'm on my way home again I need a chance, another night without sin Abusing the glamour, resorted to using again Things that I've done – all just for show Erupting at once, I'd kill just to let them go easy It's never that easy to let go Oh – baby, don't feel alone Lovers get lost, but just know I'm on my way home again I'm on my way home again Oh – baby, don't let me go It's never that easy, I know I'm on my way home again I'm on my way home again Oh – oh – home again Oh – oh – oh – home again Oh – oh – home again Oh – oh – oh – home again Oh – oh – home again Oh – oh – home again Oh – baby, don't feel alone Lovers get lost, but just know I'm on my way home again I'm on my way home again Oh – baby, don't let me go It's never that easy, I know I'm on my way home again I'm on my way home again Oh – baby, don't let me go It's never that easy, I know I'm on my way home again I'm on my way home again

Loaded Gun 01:35
Feels like something is wrong Don’t know where he belongs Not looking good on paper They follow him down the street Thrown down, locked in a cell Blown out, straight into hell Not looking good on paper They follow him down the street Run, somebody said – Get out of ya’ head He’s got a loaded gun Nowhere to run Living or death – who’s gonna get it next? Now is your chance – get up and dance Give ‘em a reason Somebody said – get out of your head He had a loaded gun

"Ordeal Erasure was released last year on July 23, 2020. There was a point in time when I wasn’t even going to release this album. While recording I was flooded out of two basement apartments, sleeping on the floor of an empty apartment, mixing/producing songs tirelessly, while trying to survive and maintain my sanity. I put it on the shelf and considered it a lost cause and learning experience.

That’s how I came to the album title Ordeal Erasure. It’s not the smoothest title, but it really resonated with me at the time while trying to overcome years of self doubt, depression, finding meaning and peace in my life and doing my best to let go and move forward.

To have the entire album remixed by so many talented producers from all over the world is surreal. I can’t thank you all enough for contributing and I hope to meet/work with you all in the future.

Go give the album a listen! It’s streaming everywhere that music can be streamed. There’s a few songs on there that didn’t make the album and a live version of lead single “On My Way” along with the groovy remixes.

Thanks for staying tuned along my musical journey. More things to come, have a lovely day."
