-A very personal rock album. He also writes from a very moral perspective, which gives his record a strong POV. These songs are not filled with empty thoughts but actually try to say something. (Vancouver Province)

-Inspiration drips from every distorted and bent guitar note, down-but-not-out vocal phrasing, and sneered lyric. (Georgia Straight)

Track Name: Morning After Pill

I wish there was a morning after pill
That would erase every trace of you in me

When something grows inside of you
Made from someone else's lies
Did you create, what you will hate
When you look into its eyes

I scrubbed my body red & raw
Bleached every inch of skin
But you're too deep, will nature weep
As I purge you from within

You've spread through me like a virus
Embedded now too far
To separate this love from hate
& me from what you are

To cleanse these murky waters
I'm drinking in the sea
To terminate, what germinates
Why can't you set me free

The hardest part is living in your silence
Hearing only faded echoes of your void
We made love, now that love has turned to violence
I will not rest until we've been destroyed
Track Name: You Break My Heart

You break my heart, always in search of danger
Spiteful, hating, waiting for you to notice
You break my heart, nothing can change what’s happened
Never forgive you for leaving when I was in my prime

Turned your back to me, I cross my shattered heart and hope you die
Lashed to bits just by your vicious tongue, and love turned into lies
I thought the bridge could hold the weight of all emotion that we shared
But my devotion hid the frigid lack of love behind your stare

Tried to help with all the dark obsessions lurking in your past
You took for granted all the sympathy, and promises I cast
I never lied to you, and swore to keep your secrets deep inside
But you couldn’t do the same for me, and now that trust has died
Forever, forever

You were my hope the way I coped my self-respect and dreams
And now it’s gone, I must go on and fight this apathy
It might be rough, I got enough of rage to fight it to the end
Too busy digging your own grave to know the meaning of a friend
And now the end, listen...

I’ll break your heart one day when you least suspect it
Take it, shake it, and break it for all to notice
You broke my heart, some day I’ll be avenging
Promise to get you for leaving when I was in my prime.
