about

I say this every time, and every time it's true- this is the best songwriting I've ever done.
I did not start this February with the intention of writing a full album, but after I wrote the first song, "Rising Dawn" I knew I had a sound that was crushing. It fueled the rest of the songs I wrote during FAWM (February Album Writing Month).
Once February was over I listened to the songs as a whole, and knew I had an amazing, coherent collection of music. I've spent the next months getting the mix just right, as well as writing two more songs to add to the album.
I hope you enjoy!

Track Name: As I Please
(c) 2016 Savage Vibes

Sleep tight my angel sweet
beneath the lies of those you keep
I will keep you close
And say you’re free
only if you do as I please

In this dominion
I am all
Kneel before me
I am all

pretend
just pretend
Don’t go too far
or you might learn just who you are
This is all that you need
right at your feet
You want more you say?
But what else would you need?

In this dominion
I am all
Kneel before me
I am all

If you run away
try to run away
just try to run away

Sleep tight my angel sweet
(In this dominion)
beneath the lies of those you keep
(I am all)
I will keep you close
(Kneel before me)
And say you’re free
only if you do as I please
(I am all)
Track Name: Beware
(c) 2016 Savage Vibes

This entertainment
It’s all the rage
It’s all the rage
It’s all the rage

Prepare for silence
prepare me for the stage

Your hallelujahs
they’re all misled
you’re all misled
They’re all misled

Prepare for silence
Prepare me for the stage

Beware
for I am the coming of the gods
Beware
for my discipline
(Release the spirit inside
Leave the fallen behind)

the answers are
in the given
In the given self indulgence

hiding from the wretched
hiding from the stench

Beware
for I am the coming of the gods
Beware
for my discipline
(Release the spirit inside
Leave the fallen behind)

Blind the site of those who can see
Burn the books of those who can read
keep repeating it’s all a dream
keep repeating it’s all a dream
keep repeating it’s all a dream
when just outside you hear the screams

Beware
for I am the coming of the gods
Beware
for my discipline
(Release the spirit inside
Leave the fallen behind)
Beware
for I am the coming of the gods
Beware
for my discipline
(Release the spirit inside
Leave the fallen behind)
Track Name: You Made Me
(c) 2016 Savage Vibes

this uptight
needing rules
having to follow the line
it’s all you

This high pressure
get it right
fearing that I’ll get it wrong
It’s all you

You made me what I am
You made me who I am

This jittery feeling that keeps me awake
It’s all you
These lines on my face
It’s because of you
My need to be on time
It’s from you

You made me what I am
You made me who I am
you made me what I am
You made me who I am
Take your rules
take your lies
take your blood
I’ve demonized

The past won’t repeat itself today
I keep saying over and over and over again

You made me what I am
You made me who I am
you made me what I am
You made me who I am
Take your rules
take your lies
take your blood
I’ve demonized
Track Name: Deep Inside
(c) 2016 Savage Vibes

music is the ghost
the ghost inside
music is the feeling
that keeps me alive

Rip it all away
take it all away
keep it all away

This nightmare
it scares me
it keeps me up
keeps me waiting for the dawn to arrive
deep inside

Saddened notes will free me
keep the dreams away
keep the fires at bay
keep the screams away
Bring back the day

Rip it all away
take it all away
keep it all away

This nightmare
it scares me
it keeps me up
keeps me waiting for the dawn to arrive
deep inside

I remember
I remember
When it all made sense

This nightmare
it scares me
it keeps me up
keeps me waiting for the dawn to arrive
deep inside
Track Name: My Words Are Apocalypse
(c) 2016 Savage Vibes

It’s all getting better
As the edge comes in closer
The sun is getting brighter
But this blackness remains
In the saddest of chords
Bring your pain
Bring your saints
cause These damned waters they live forever

your lips hold my future
These words temper the past
My life is still wanting
My future is overcast
My words are apocalypse and this end that is near

These eyes keep looking back
Keep seeing what once was
These ears regret the history
Those words that held me down
These new pages are being written
In these two hearts that I hold

your lips hold my future
These words temper the past
My life is still wanting
My future is overcast
My words are apocalypse and this end that is near

These voices
These voices
These voices are all chaos

The dark one that ride through the night
The shadows in the corners of my mind
The chaos breeds in the air of madness
These voices are all chaos

It’s all getting better
Bring your pain
Bring your saints
cause These damned waters they live forever

your lips hold my future
These words temper the past
My life is still wanting
My future is overcast
My words are apocalypse and this end that is near
Track Name: Super PAC
(c) 2016 Savage Vibes

Apathetic kings
with Nations divided
with congregations bloodlined and violated
Disciples
mainlined
Cruel and devisive
These sounds
all wrong
jailbirds united

Believe what you will
In destruction Anarchism in time
Believe what you want
these lacerations are mine
Believe that we will
listen to the loneliest lines
Believe that we can
Speak the loudest denial

Hear me and the thunder I bring
Listen to the loneliest screams
of these untamed things
in my heart
in my lungs
running for the unseen agony
everybody’s running
for the world combusting fallacy

Believe what you will
In destruction Anarchism in time
Believe what you want
these lacerations are mine
Believe that we will
listen to the loneliest lines
Believe that we can
Speak the loudest denial

Just Breathe

Disciples
mainlined
Cruel and devisive
These sounds
all wrong
jailbirds united

Believe what you will
In destruction Anarchism in time
Believe what you want
these lacerations are mine
Believe that we will
listen to the loneliest lines
Believe that we can
Speak the loudest denial

Just breathe
Track Name: Thoughts And Prayers
According to a study using the World Health Organizations 2010 mortality data, comparing the United States with other high income countries, it was found that the gun homicide rate in the US was 25 times higher than in other high income countries.
The studies conclusion - “These results are consistent with the hypothesis that our firearms are killing us rather than protecting us.”
(“Americans are much, much more likely, to be killed by guns than people in other countries”, by Mark Berman, Washington Post, 2/3/16)

another shot rings out
just another child dead
and we all cry out
for another way

And all you can give us
Are these thoughts and prayers
Just cover up the grief
in these thoughts and prayers

nobody wants the solution
nobody wants to sacrifice
“it’s all just about our freedoms”
killing people is our way of life
Let’s make it easier
let’s bring out the big guns
let’s justify the reasons
for spending more money on more guns

And all you can give us
Are these thoughts and prayers
Just cover up the grief
in these thoughts and prayers

A kid rang my doorbell and ran away, so I shot him (Oklahoma, 1/1/16)
My son and I were arguing about the lottery numbers, so I shot him (Louisiana, 1/9/16)
My son jumped out and said, “Boo!” which startled me, so I shot him (Ohio, 1/12/16)
I left a folding chair on a public street to save my parking space, somebody moved it, so I shot him (Massachusettes, 1/25/16)
I saw a woman walking down the street and tried to flirt with her. She wasn’t interested so I shot her dead (Pennsylvania, 1/22/16)

In the land of the living
Changing minds
changing accidents
Keeping lies
That can’t make sense

another shot rings out
just another child dead

And all you can give us
Are these thoughts and prayers
Just cover up the grief
in these thoughts and prayers
And all you can give us
Are these thoughts and prayers
Just cover up the grief
in these thoughts and prayers

This study shows that the rate of suicides involving guns was 8 times higher in the US than other countries.
2 out of 3 gun deaths in the US are suicides.

Track Name: That's Enough
(c) 2016 Savage Vibes

It’s tough to keep it down
Keep the feelings underground
Keep the ghosts away
Drive the hurt far away

This sometimes hurts so bad
it sometimes takes over

This competition is killing me
Just leave me alone
This real life is drowning me
It Cuts me right to the bone
cause That’s enough

Another day
another distress
Another thought that I have to suppress
Keep it all under control
breathing fire that takes a hold

It all tightens up
and I’m about to explode

This competition is killing me
Just leave me alone
This real life is drowning me
It Cuts me right to the bone
cause That’s enough

these thoughts are tightening
this blood is on fire
these thoughts are crippling
This blood is on fire

This competition is killing me
Just leave me alone
This real life is drowning me
It Cuts me right to the bone
cause That’s enough
Track Name: Rising Dawn
(c) 2016 Savage Vibes

Announcing the massacre of the day
Extermination proceeding in silence
Through this wretchedness
And this decay

We scoff at the violence
My inheritance becomes the bitter cold
An assault on the wicked
This irretrievable goal

I am the dawn that is rising
Adorned with empires
I am the greed in truths light
Ugly treasures that unfold

Somebody is hoping again
Somebody someday
Something is bleeding again
Giving up the living
giving up today
The darkness is winning again
giving up the freedom today

I am the dawn that is rising
Adorned with empires
I am the greed in truths light
Ugly treasures that unfold
Prepare for my arrival
Prepare for my return
I am the dawn that is rising
Ugly treasures that unfold

Fear the falling mind
fear my return

Somebody Somewhere
is announcing the violence
Extermination proceeding
through this Decay!

I am the dawn that is rising
Adorned with empires
I am the greed in truths light
Ugly treasures that unfold
Prepare for my arrival
Prepare for my return
I am the dawn that is rising
Ugly treasures that unfold

Somebody somewhere
is inheriting the bitter cold
Track Name: Nowhere To Run
(c) 2016 Savage Vibes

The muscle memory
keeping me from drowning
In These thoughts
that the end is near
Watching the world
circling the drain
While I’m keeping my head above the water
keeping my head above the water

There’s no where to run
This dystopia is following me
But there has to be a sun
at the end of this misery

I watch you all
keep digging your holes
I watch you all
blame the other ones
Try to keep your heads above the water

There’s no where to run
This dystopia is following me
But there has to be a sun
at the end of this misery

I’m just trying to find the way out
I’m just trying to find the way out
But they say
That the way out is through

There’s no where to run
This dystopia is following me
But there has to be a sun
at the end of this misery
Track Name: Smash It Down
Bare the bombs
great innocence
Atom’s smile
Speak of nothing
naturally
hypothetically
This saga grows and grows and grows to nothing

Hey children
complete the cycle
hey children deny the cheapest ignorance

These patriarchs
they smash it down
Assert the warrior
uncompromising
These patriarchs
they smash it down
Ancient warrior
forever uncompromising

King splitters
Denial haters
The saga screwed
you romance the traitors

Hey millionaires
your politicians run
hey millionaires
let’s make them famous

These patriarchs
they smash it down
Assert the warrior
uncompromising
These patriarchs
they smash it down
Ancient warrior
forever uncompromising

bury the truth
bury the silent
bury the needs
and watch it all fall

These patriarchs
they smash it down
Assert the warrior
uncompromising
These patriarchs
they smash it down
Ancient warrior
forever uncompromising
Track Name: The God Machine
(c) 2016 Savage Vibes

Your promises are all dreamt up
truly burning desires
please kiss my soul
and hack at these holes

feels like forever
in my veins you rust
you are my psychopathic nightmare
The only thing I trust

I am not the God machine
I am not The god you own
Pull the prayers from my nightmares
And shock me
And bleed me
I am not the god you own

bloody bodies
are all piling up
in the bluest of skies
you haunt my memories
these thoughts
always deny
my murderous heart
you grind my truth
and weaken my world
Your scandalous mind
it twists your heart
weakens our world

I am not the God machine
I am not The god you own
Pull the prayers from my nightmares
And shock me
And bleed me
I am not the god you own

This is my trance
This is my trance
This is the yesterday
It’s my ghost dance

Tonight is the night when
Tonight is the night when
Tonight is the night when it all makes sense

Your promises are all dreamt up
truly burning desires
please kiss my soul
and hack at these holes

I am not the God machine
I am not The god you own
Pull the prayers from my nightmares
And shock me
And bleed me
I am not the god you own
Track Name: Mi Verbo Es Apocalipsis
written by Geoff Saavedra
(c) 2016 Savage Vibes

y Todo mejora
Al acercarse el límite
El sol más resplandeciente
Pero esta negrura persiste
En el más triste acorde
Trae tu dolor
Trae tus santos
Pues estas aguas malditas viven eternas

labios albergan mi futuro
Este verbo atenúa el pasado
Mi vida sigue deficiente
Mi futuro es sombrío
Mi verbo es apocalipsis y este final que se acerca

mis ojos siguen mirando hacia atrás
viendo lo que ya fue
oídos que lamentan la historia
palabras que me abatieron
L as nuevas páginas se escriben
En estos dos corazones que porto

Tus labios albergan mi futuro
Este verbo atenúa el pasado
Mi vida sigue deficiente
Mi futuro es sombrío
Mi verbo es apocalipsis y este final que se acerca

Estas voces
Estas voces
Estas voces son un caos

El oscuro que pasea en la noche
Sombras en mis recovecos mentales
El caos se cría al aire de locura
Estas voces son un caos

Todo mejora
Si, todo mejora
Trae tu dolor
Trae tus santos
Pues estas aguas malditas viven eternas

Tus labios albergan mi futuro
Este verbo atenúa el pasado
Mi vida sigue deficiente
Mi futuro es sombrío

Mi verbo es apocalipsis y este final que se acerca
