lyrics

I'm going west, to lay my ghosts to rest.
To stake a scarecrow, & plant a cactus.

Won't go unsung.

I've known, for the longest time, that my strings were strung, from my faulty heart....
But that's all I knew then, you plugged my pickups in, I'm made electric.
Don't think I forgot.... Don't think I forgot.

Sounds, are seeds, we plant a cactus to carry on.
They, will still be here, when we're, all dead & gone.

It's coming....

Sounds, are seeds, we plant a cactus to carry on.
They, will still be here, when we're all dead & gone.

Tonight, right here, we make, history, all of us.
They, can't take, us all, you wanna try? Then come on & get some....

Come on & get some.

Was it you? It must've been your ghost.

I'm going west, to lay my ghosts to rest.
To stake a scarecrow, & plant a cactus.

So loud.... So long....
To try to shake the ground you're in.
Can you hear it? Feel it? Feel me?

This is what it sound's like....

about

idiedtrying Park Layne, Ohio

idiedtrying. - A mission of creating timeless & compelling music, with a cinematic context & pushing the boundaries of emotion within art.

Sometimes beautiful, often joylessly melancholy but most accurately described as horrific. Forever art-damaged. Complete murdered auditory terrorism. The peak of transient delving, compulsive emotional mutilation.

Uncategorical and terrifyingly cathartic.
