I am just a member I am just a vote for your cause I am just a number Solve me as a man without resolve Got me where you want me I’m yours for sure Wean me off your blinders Left to think my thoughts are my own On my own Finally A moment to myself And I realize I know who I am But not what I’m living for I need a reason that isn’t a rhyme I need a meaning that isn’t a reason why I’ll leave you all with a scar, a permanent mark For when death do us part Because it’s hard to face Knowing we all will fade away [Stay] Ideology is a fallacy when what I believe doesn’t come as a package deal There’s no borderline, in your bottom line If a picture’s worth a thousand words, then who needs scripture With a picture’s worth, and feeling what we’re worth We all might as well just do porn [Got me where you want me] [On my own] I’ve never felt so frail So vulnerable to a wakeless morning I’ve never felt so afraid That it could all just end Without a warning [It ends] And I pray for you to see I’ve been sheltered by my bliss I can’t brace myself It all hits all at once And it may kill me Leave me to Burn, I lost my fire Running from the flames [On my own] Finally, finally I know I need a reason that isn’t a rhyme I need a meaning that isn’t a reason why I’ll leave you all with a permanent mark I need a reason that isn’t a rhyme I need a meaning that isn’t a reason why I’ll leave you all with a scar, a permanent mark For when death do us part Because it’s hard to face Knowing we all will fade away O, aimless, I aim for the rafters Not knowing what I am after So shameless, I’m chasing my rapture [But what does it matter?] And without a warning [It ends]

Dreaming felt real Life, illusion I’ll always wish we’d become All that we were We mourn loss of control Instead of taking it back We stand idle and wonder All that could have been To lay this notion to peace Too late for this man’s too… Disheartened From fighting for no reward I want more, I see [Watch it float away] Living in fear of vanishing I will myself to overcome slow motion But something’s in the way To justify running out of time How I long to be remembered But this man’s too… Disheartened From fighting for no reward I want more than you’ve shown me Watch it float, I want to float away Until it’s real Faith In all of this stalling this moment I face All of this solace, this omen Replaced All of this, all of this, stalling This solace is wreckage Tearing me open All my ambitions Painted in the distance But something’s in the way Of my becoming My final offering to you A ripple to resound forever But this man’s through [Done] Fighting for no reward I want more My fate, I fray these ends undone Torn away from all we’re tied to Watch it float, I want to float away Until it’s real

To watch the curtain fall Within an inch of the call A thousand reasons not one to divulge The sting of all that was You medicate so willingly As we endure the fall To normalcy You’re far beyond the underlying forces Slight in a way untrue Wait where’s the worth in holding on When the rope to which you cling has cut you off Now it’s not the same Though I dream awakening to my Wasted days harboring the sorrows of a promise set to flames So why do we grieve Lying to, we’re lying to, We lie ourselves to sleep They force what lives out of all What you turn away You’re far beyond the underlying forces Slight in a way untrue Wait where’s the worth in holding on When the rope to which you cling has cut you off Who told you to wait for me?

I see a different world I am nothing more, an experiment Watch me as I… Never had the chance Fairness is one I’ll lose forever As I walk along this road Ending the hope of love forever Far from this place Inside the fear that I possessed The will for growing stronger The will to change and find one final way Not beautiful All I can ask is for why the burden’s with me So I’ll free my soul beyond the world Hope of escaping the truth forever The more I wait, the more I watch it Go through all of the Earth Wait out, wait out and fade slowly Wait out, wait out for me For some, eyes don’t see the meaning Of this short life What shows the reality Of the true way we are This is the only way that I could follow But here, lies were all I had to fear Is the sorrow forgiven? For now I know that nothing is the same I wish you were never here And I knew That I washed away for good So far away I fell from dreaming The lives that I’d give for I am the one who Needs to feel it all Never had the chance Fairness is one I’ll lose forever Wait out, wait out and fade Wait out, wait out for me

about

A Dream In Static is everything we are as human beings poured into 63-minutes of music.

This album is our modest attempt at breaking down the shackles of modern society and establishing a passionate, kind, and open-minded world community of real human connection. We want our music to stir something within you—to challenge your own assumptions and drive you to see the potential in yourself.
