Through my penchant for the "ever-raw" and the chasmic effects, one can tell it's a "Tristus" project...but this is the first trace of my original solo endeavor in a looong time...after many metal bands, and before all the lone-metal madness broke through the surface; I played coffee shops. THIS IS NOT METAL, despite what tags may lead you to believe. It began as me and a guitar, lamenting as always. At the time I didn't think I could do anything but tearjerkers, but time and circumstance has proven otherwise, and then some. I have dropped the near-poppy folk of RG's past, but the dismal beauty remains. Despite the sickness, depravity, and brutality of my rotten soul, which is evident from my metal releases - I decided to resurrect this project; a calmer, more subdued collection of laments. (Now you know what the URL for all this means...)
NOTE: This is a growing album. Tracks will be added one-by-one, in due time.

Track Name: On Opposing Ground
On Opposing Ground

A flame comes from you
Blue and coldest of the kind
Which we both know for sure
Isn't cold at all

I tell because of darkness
I see now due to this
I wouldn't take notice
On a warm, brighter day

The shadows I receive
On these horrid days of sun
Are products of the light
As the sky bears down again

Damn the shadows this night
Damn the rays tomorrow
It's the enemy we are to follow
When we are forced to dwell
On opposing ground
Track Name: Help It Be Hell
Help It Be Hell

Be sure to remember
As plain as day, as clear as tears
Visitations of the damned
All the wisdom placed into our hands
For if not for knowing
Thorns that pierce our blooming hearts
Flames that scorch and sear
We would rot or disappear
Heaven's gates grow wider
The welcoming angels sing louder
For the fallen
For the victor
Track Name: Shy Behind The Night
Shy Behind The Night

The rain is flowing upward toward the sky
As a sullen entity of lost virtue gently dies
Slowly reaching heaven through heartbroken cries
And blessed be the ones that see it in my eyes
The sun hides shy behind the night
Even days with warmth hold defeated light
My embrace is cold and unable to be tight
Letting go to free my soul is all I feel is right
Kiss me
Yet turn away swiftly
Be there, my love
But flee from me
I never want the grave to visit me
I call upon my allies as I see fit to be
I always want your smile and sympathy
But cannot bear to let you see
Track Name: The Sparkling Eye
The Sparkling Eye

Soldier's face is quite despised
Not from the shrapnel cuts
But frown lines embedded deep

His shroud is thick with dust
Not from sitting in the dark
But from being left behind

Have you felt the frigid hands
Of one who keeps them in his pockets?
Have you seen the sparkling eye
Of reflecting tears instead of delight?

Soldier's knees do bleed
Not from speaking to The Lord
But begging angels in the woods

His shroud is full of holes
Not from enemies
But friendly fire of hidden wars

Close the door so you can't see
And hate the soldier that is me
Track Name: Toward The Fading Moon
Toward The Fading Moon

The wind took all my thought once
Leaving me bloodless
So without mind and body I
Was left with a soul
The rain came and I felt it
Yet so much different
My blood began to flow again
And my mind followed

I walked toward the fading moon
As clouds rolled
And I wondered how many times
I was reborn
And sooner than later
My blood became poison
Just like a life before
But this time so spectral
And my thoughts stirred
A storm of memories
Inescapable torrents of visions
It was time for a rebirth

I turned around to return
To a home of a battle
Between ghosts and machines
And love and hatred
