about

"Soliloquy" is a collection of songs that were conceived at random moments throughout the past 8 years. I have a massive archive of musical ideas I've been building since college. These are just a handful of them that, to me, have stood the test of time and were ready to be shared. I strive to make each song different from each other. The point is to make each composition live in its own conceptual world with its own unique colors and textures. All the songs are homemade, recorded and mixed entirely by myself, with the exception of the drums. Lyrically, some themes in the album include reflection, ambition, retreating, optimism, and the constant pressure on your nerves to capture a moment of inspiration. "Soliloquy" is just that – a soliloquy. It's my first time getting the thoughts and sounds in my head, out there to the world.

Track Name: Stinky Car
As I cruise
In my stinky car
I find ways around the obstacles of modern life
On this trip
On my placid trip
Yes, my pessimistic attitude goes on the shelf
‘Cause you see
It’s all temporary
None of this
Really matters
As told by Mr. Mercury

Ha ha ha, live the life
It’s OK, live the life
Optimistic attitude is what you wanna be

Ha ha ha, live the life
It’s OK, live the life
Positive altitude is where you wanna be
Track Name: Fantasy?
How would I find fantasy
When every time I leave you,
I’ve awoken from a dream?

There you were
White summer dress
Out the blue
And safe in the red
Pandora
Send me a signal
I’m there for you
Please don’t ghost again

How would I find fantasy
When every time I leave you,
I’ve awoken from a dream?

There you were
White summer dress
Out the blue
And safe in the red
Barbara
Send me a signal
I’m there for you
Please don’t ghost again
Track Name: Nessun Dorma (Something Crazy)
Something crazy
Something crazy
Something crazy about you
Something crazy about you that I don’t like

It’s getting on my nerves
It’s moving up my spine
It’s picking at my conscience
I’m losing peace of mind
And pieces of my mind

Oooh, Nessun Dorma



Something crazy
Something crazy
Something crazy about you that I don’t like

It’s getting on my nerves
It’s moving up my spine
It’s picking at my conscious
It’s eating up my mind
And killing it
Track Name: To Embark
I keep believing that it’s shocking
That it’s shocking that I’m leaving

Believing there’s reason there
And I can’t tell or believe it

Would leaving leave a marking there
Is it shocking that I’m leaving?

Believe it when the sun come down
When the sun come down
When the sun come down

------------------------

My heart bleeds but there’s reason there
It’s proven there I’ve seen

Even if I freeze all alone
I’ll stay all alone in season

I’m weaving in the ‘who and where’ thread
Is it shocking that I’m leaving?

Believe it all around
I’m leaving there
I’m leaving reason

--------------------------

Stepping through the clouds

Shining at the gates
Track Name: My Horizon
My horizon
Slices through the garden
Nevermind how it started
But people get broken hearted

And I've been fighting
I won't be forgotten
But I'm torn in two in this violin
That's been playing life's song

I've got a problem
Taking in everyone's venom
Well they keep coming back again
'Cause they're still looking for heaven
Track Name: Violet
Something unsteady
In the air’s mood
I came to find
My friend fast asleep

His dreams uncoil
Crown of shakra
A color so true
We call it Violet

------------------------

Now Violet surrounds me
And duality fades
Free from illusion
Free in the haze

His dreams uncoil
Crown of shakra
A color so true
We call it Violet
Track Name: Cavin' In
Cavin’ in, cavin’ in
These walls
C-c-c-cavin’ in

Suddenly I go down
WHAT?!
(psycho-analytical)
HUH?!

1-2-3-4

----------------------------

Cavin’ in, cavin’ in
These walls
C-c-c-cavin’ in

Suddenly I go down
WHAT?!
(psycho-analytical)
HUH?!

Numb, to how I identify
Numb, to how I identify
Reason of time deserted
Dehydrated, introverted
Feels like I’m in the mirror stage
Shatter the glass with all this rage
The walls are cracking in too quick, I need a diagnosis
My trains of thought gone from this cold psychosis
Track Name: Wildly I Seize You
Don’t tell no one
So wildly I seize you

You know that everyday is a one way run
But I’d fly there to see you too

And we fear the wake up
Upon arrival

Lifelines are ready
So wildly I seize you

You know that everyday is a one way run
But I’d fly there to see you too
Yeah, to see you too

But I, can’t help, but run, the other way
Track Name: Subtlety In The Tone
It's showtime
Time to put your face on right
You're heading home
Tear apart the doctor's note

I get the feeling every now and then
I hear a voice
Telling me what to do
And every bit of the subtlety in the tone
Telling me how

I'm learning what to choose
It's paving me the way
I'm breaking through
Nothing to say
Nothing to lose
Track Name: Further Down
According to the pedigree
They all look the same
Toe to toe, and knee to knee
Shape inflate
And shape and build and build

Purebred for productivity
Sworn to an empty oath that never ends
And it’s all for the GDP

Here goes, further down the rabbit hole
Here, go further down the rabbit hole
We’ll go further down the rabbit hole
We’ll go further down the rabbit hole

Soaked in gold, your fingers whither
The end of time
Nations rule in plastic prayer
They fear the ticking

What did I want when I walked this way?
Did the smiles from the board take my pain away?
Track Name: There's A Woman Lost At Sea
There's a woman lost at sea
Calls me name hopefully
She looks up ashore
The one, the one thing she adores


There is a cold side to me
'Cause I know time will set me free
Well I walk down the shore
Further down along the ocean floor
Track Name: Soliloquy
When I'm free
of some time
for some visceral soliloquy
...I picture myself in a mind
far aligned from me
and I plea
what it means to be
long as time guarantees

Godsent misfortune
...deja vu




Missa en aeternum
Non est responsum



What to do, what to do
What to do, but join?
