Album: This is How The Wind Shifts

Track: 17 on the Addendum

Shane Told: on his very own album

“The idea of this album is how a person’s life can change forever with just one event. It is the “what if” that everyone thinks about from time to time. This album is different from a typical start tofinish story concept album, or an album where all the songs have a common theme. Each track has a parallel track that tells the story in a different light, what would have happened if things were different due to a single event. The song titles of each parallel track go together, forming a sentence or in some cases two words that relate to each other and to the story. Overall, the point of this album is not to prove the existence of fate, or to disprove it. It’s a discussion of life, of loss, of and , of success within failure, of failure within success, of the struggle between your actions and your feelings, and how those don’t always go together. This Is How The Wind Shifts is a journey that jumps around but stays cohesive, with underlying meaning and stories that have a real human meaning and cater to the soul.[11]

And this has been my favourite song of theirs for a while

But I was completely unaware of the existence of this music video

To Live and To Lose

“To Live And To Lose”

Follow painted lines along the way back to see you
Fighting sleep and drifting in the rain, I couldn’t get through
I was thrown from my mind with no one there to catch me
To lead me back to life
Had to leave it behind and send my other on her way

Will you break when you realize I’m gone
Counting days until the season you move on
I’m having doubts if you can still feel me at all
Out here looking on while you’re falling in love

I was thrown from my mind and you’re not here to catch me
To make it all feel right
I’ve been trying to find a way to get back to you
And say I’m sorry

When I found a way to calm down, a disguise of yourself without me
Your heart was so strong, I thought you’d moved on
But you can’t carry on without me

I was thrown from my mind and now I’m here to beg you
To move on with your life
You can leave me behind
I am the voice in your head that tells you it’s alright

I was thrown from my mind with no one there to catch me
To lead me back to life
Had to leave it behind and I have to accept it
The way it all has to be, has to be, has to be now
The way it all has to be, has to be, has to be
The way it all has to be

In Silent Seas We Drown

In Silent Seas We Drown

I’m running just like the wind, a moving current
Feel it pushing faster, it’s pushing faster
I’m hiding you like a sin, a lonely liar
See you taking after, you’re taking after

We have come so far against these odds
Been on my back for way too long
But now I realize it’s not my problem
There’s countless ways I won’t try to solve them

I’m caving in like a mine, I’m under pressure
Feel it taking over, it’s taking over
I’m living life like a lie, I’m losing judgment
Shoulders growing colder, I’m growing colder

I have broken down so many walls
I never thought I’d have to climb them now
It used to be so fun, I used to dream in light
But now I work in dark I feel so worn and trite

I’m telling all my friends I love the highs and lows
But the truth is that I’d rather stay home alone
I’m making sure there’s a path to make it harder for me
And make it harder to quit, make it impossible.

You won’t believe what I’m capable of
Buried bodies, this labor of my love.

I silenced everyone
I silenced everyone
I silenced all my critics
Silenced them all except myself
I silenced everyone
Silence them all except myself

I silenced everyone
Silenced them all except myself
I silenced everyone
Silence them all by myself, myself

Because I’ve come this far, I won’t back down
I struck a chord, inside myself and found
that there’s no one else who can solve my problems
I can’t admit to you that I regret them.

And when I’m heading home, I wonder where to go
‘cause I’m honestly afraid I might die alone
I’m making sure there’s a path to make it harder for me

You won’t believe what I’m capable of.
