“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.”
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
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
