These songs were a result of struggle. Struggle is something that everyone experiences. Why we all walk around pretending that we don’t is a problem deeply rooted in our human makeup. You will find heavy and dark lyrics strategically disguised by catchy melodies and creative song structures. We would like you to think and write for yourself. Writing down what you think is imperative. A human must create. That’s why we were created.
