Reza Najafi Oh man! When I listened to this, I heard Pink Floyd, Trent Reznor, I even heard some Marilyn Manson! And on top of all that, there’s Crystal’s beautiful vocals and Joseph’s amazing production... Do yourself a favor and grab this album, you won’t be disappointed... Did I mention I love concept albums? this is my new favorite... Favorite track: Reason To Bleed.

Over and over. . . Over and over. . . Over and over. . . Over and over. . .

Lie still and breathe through blankets A glitch in time, and space rips. It's alright I think there's more Take what you came for. Deafening when you come through Static, hair raised, devil's due. Closed off, but you are bringing Skeleton keys, and one will fit me. It's alright I think there's more Take what you came for.

Devoured 05:21
The closer we are, The harder the pull. Cocooned by this entrainment Deep inside the low hum of you. I'll stay for a spell. What else can I do? Are you inspired by skin? The thinner kind that caves under pen? Tattoo secrets I'll take to my grave. My skin is your slave, It bleeds for your sin. Devoured— You need to be held With me in the fold. Everything we've weathered Built a room of moments untold. Are you inspired by blood? That iron ore beneath all the mud That's magnetized your will through my heart? My blood is your art, It brings forth the flood. Devoured— Devoured— Devoured—

Broke Out 03:50
A word, a dare, a palm To hold me down, Disintegrate under your thumb. And I feel like my wings won't take me far Enough to save myself. Stay muffled, face down, calm. Breathe in now— Mind, heart, caught in the fray, Reaching the apex, find your way Through the deceit, love is a crime. Manipulate this one more time. Breathe out now— Mind, heart, caught in the fray. It doesn't matter what they say, 'Cause Truth, there's only One: It's what you taste with your own tongue. Boy, you play a mean game. I can do just the same. And I feel like a creep you keep for kicks, A sacrificial lamb. Maybe it's time to bury the man. Kill with kindness, Kill with pleasure, Kill with fire. If I never break out, If I never get through, Burn it all and make do— (Broke Out Broke Out Broke Out. . .) Running out of options, Thrown against a brick wall, You can see your own fall— There has to be a way for me To stop what's coming true. Predetermined release, Holding nothing at bay. Well, there's only one way— The road is red, it's paved with the Remains of me and you.

Breathing 02:02

Burn the deadwood, spread the ash, It's live or be lived upon. Cut myself from my roots, but still Your poison pulses on. Handled all my memories, Buried all my dead. Days, I push up through this dirt, But nights, you possess my bed. Every time I close my eyes Every time I close my eyes (All I can see is you) Every time I close my eyes (All I can see is you) Every time I close my eyes (All I can see is you)

This shadow that calls me Below, diving down Draw my breath with a fluttering eye And thoughts that save themselves for dark Caught in the undertow This demon that claws me Lovingly Come again He says Do return He begs Come again He demands Come again Come again Into the mouth and get swallowed Into the dark c’mon follow me down Why not...oh well... (I should be very afraid of myself)

I'm fine, I swear. . . I'm fine, I swear. . . I'm fine, I swear. . . I'm fine, I swear. . .

Can’t fix this glitch not even if I wanted to Straight to the bottom tear right into the core of you Pulling on the heartstrings seeing if there’s anything Left for the taking, leave each other shaking now. Drag this body where you want me to be... A prick, a sting, oh, I can handle everything I don’t need a reason to bleed Unravel Embattled I come undone for you Held open Bent, broken I come undone for you You tap into the damage that's inside of me Dig in and draw us out closer to the apogee Nothing more to let go, putting on my best show Tracing over old scars, how'd we let it get this far? Push this body, and I want you to see... A prick, a sting, oh, I can handle everything I don’t need a reason to bleed Desperate, we fight to find our fill in emptiness Struggling to loosen all these ropes that bind our bliss Centuries of silence make for a soft bed To lay down the screaming I hear in my head I don't need a reason— I don't need a reason to bleed Unravel Embattled I come undone for you Held open Bent, broken I come undone for you

Here - Hear A Door - A Mirror The way out is through Disappear Another tear A room inside a room Blanket of fear Pulled tight tonight Not sure how to feel Disappear Another tear A room inside a room Ooh... A Room inside a room A Room inside a room A Room inside a room A Room inside a room A Room inside a room A Room inside a room

about

A concept album inspired by one of many haunted nightmares— A vision of a ghost materializing from space-ripping static to a deafening effect, creeping closer and demanding acceptance. In keeping with the psychology behind ghost dreams, the work explores past trauma, buried memories, strained relationships, and self-preserving alienation. If you discovered a lock in your mind, where would you look for the key? Driving beats interpolated with dreamy interludes set to thought-provoking lyrics and complex layered vocals.
