nascentia This entire album is fantastic start to finish. It kicks off really strong with All I See (Is Red), which is one of my favorites, but it never relents. This was one of those rare albums I listened to start to finish and then started right back over.

If you like 3teeth, Cyanotic, PIG, or industrial rock as a whole, you'll probably love Nuclear*Sun and this album is a fantastic place to start. Favorite track: All I See (Is Red).

Hiding Somewhere deep inside of my mind I feel A finger going to the trigger My thoughts Killing all I once believed in Stumble Slipping in the pools of blood This battle rages on Powers we can't understand My mind: a desert of pain A dark and forgotten land Watching the combat go on Through a dead soldier's eyes This battle has no victor In this war everyone dies Somewhere A dream calls out in agony I see Defeat getting closer and closer Some day Maybe I'll wake up from this place I know I may just be asleep forever This battle rages on Powers we can't understand My mind: a desert of pain A dark and forgotten land Watching the combat go on Through a dead soldier's eyes This battle has no victor In this war everyone dies

Trapped inside this dream Hearing pained and tortured screams Darkness fills my mind Slice out my eyes to sanctify the blind Trapped inside this hell A cold and rusty private cell How long have I been manipulated? Watching my mind desecrated I want to get away Have to escape this pain I want to live my life (Sever the connection) I want to strip off the plain Don't want to die in vain I've got to get away (Sever the connection) I am like a machine Escape my nightmares in my dreams Try to cut myself free All they do is watch me bleed Trapped inside this dream With all the other circuitry Pull myself away The chains get tighter every day I want to get away Have to escape this pain I want to live my life (Sever the connection) I want to strip off the plain Don't want to die in vain I've got to get away (Sever the connection) Rip out the wires they use to control you Scrape off the paint they use to disguise you Tear out the eyes they use to blind you Kill off the life they use to lie to you

Burn 04:48
Burn I put my faith in you, I put my trust in your soul I thought that you could help me out of this dark hole I saw you shining bright in the water I wanted you so bad, so I swam straight down But when I finally had you... Well, you just left me here to drown And I want to know... I hear the angels singing You're not one of them, I've learned I could have given you my heart So why did you leave me? Why did you leave me here to burn? Burn I wanted you so much, my lust for you was so strong For you I thought I had love, but I guess I was wrong I tried to fight the urge and desire But my heart just wouldn't let go And now that I know who you are and what you're like I guess you really could sink so low, and... I hear the angels singing You're not one of them, I've learned I would have given you my all So why did you leave me? Why did you leave me here to burn? Burn I drag myself out from the ashes But the heat keeps pulling me down And every time I see your smiling face... I want to run it straight into the ground And... I hear the angels singing You're not one of them, I've learned I could have given you the world So why did you leave me? I still hear angels singing From their light we can learn But it's not truth I'm after... I just want to see you... I want to see you burn Burn

You think I'm beautiful? Then why do you keep telling me I'm not? A shattered emptiness and I don't believe in anything I've got You think I'm everything? Then why do you keep telling me that I'm nothing? And that's just the beginning... We are the ones that you can't see The ones crushed by society We are the fallen angels The ones that have no reason to believe I AM NOTHING A shallow waste And I won't believe in anything you say You think that this is bad? Try living with it every single day And if the pieces fit? You fucking fooled me Why can't you see that I'm nothing? The end to the beginning We are the ones that you can't see The ones crushed by society We are the fallen angels The ones that have no reason to believe (I am everything and... I am nothing but I...) (I want everything and... I want nothing but I...) (I am everything and... I want nothing but I...) (I want everything and I am nothing.) I'm not beautiful or special in any way I'm just another pathetic teenage cliche Why should I open up and let you all see me frown When I know everyone is just waiting to bring me down? I won't let you inside I won't show you I care Life is just something that we all have to bear... We are the ones that you can't see The ones crushed by society We are the fallen angels The ones that have no reason... We are the ones that you can't see The ones crushed by society We are the fallen angels The ones that have no reason... We are the ones that you can't see The ones FUCKED by society We are the ones that you can't see We are the fallen angels, the ones that have no reason.... To believe

I'm walking down this path A long and empty road I'm walking by myself Head feels like it might explode Strangers come and go Call out as they pass by Nobody stops to look The corner of their eye 'Cause nothing's gonna change today Nothing's gonna change today Nothing's gonna change today Nothing's gonna change today And it feels like... I'm gonna live this life alone And it feels like... I just can't make it on my own Well, I try to to move on, but I don't know how So just tell me, God: Why can't I get to heaven now? The dust dries up my throat Cough when I try to scream Leave no footprints behind This journey feels just like a dream I look for some support An angel from above But lately you can't tell A vulture from a dove 'Cause nothing's gonna change today Nothing's gonna change today Nothing's gonna change today Nothing's gonna change today And it feels like... I'm gonna live this life alone And it feels like... I just can't make it on my own Well, I try to to move on, but I don't know how So just tell me, God: Why can't I get to heaven now? 'Cause nothing's gonna change today Nothing's gonna change today Nothing's gonna change today Nothing's gonna change today

The Rage 03:48
Darkness calls... Sanity impaired Lose my grip... Reality not there Stand alone... Against the one true reign Don't believe? Live your life in pain Need to kill... The voice inside my head Cover it... With emptiness instead Conscience dies... Lonely is gone Losing control... Need to carry on And I feel the rage... And I feel the rage... And I feel the rage... ...and I feel The Rage You take it out of me Your hate is all I see Look what you've done to me YOU BRING IT OUT AND NOW IT'S TIME TO DEAL WITH THE RAGE Silent cry. Vision going black Path is set. There's no going back Clenched fist. Followed by clenched jaw Time to fight. Disregard the law Need to feed... The voice inside my head Blood boils... everything turns red Conscience dies... Loneliness is gone Lost control... the hatred carries on And I feel the rage... (and I feel it building up inside...) And I feel the rage... (and I feel it building up inside...) And I feel the rage... (and I feel it building up inside...) ...and I feel The Rage You take it out of me Your hate is all I see Look what you've done to me YOU BRING IT OUT AND NOW IT'S TIME TO DEAL WITH THE RAGE And I feel the rage... (and I feel it building up inside...) And I feel the rage... (and I feel it building up inside...) And I feel the rage... (and I feel it building up inside...) ...and I feel The Rage You take it out of me Your hate is all I see Look what you've done to me YOU BRING IT OUT AND NOW IT'S TIME TO DEAL WITH THE RAGE You take it out of me My hate is all you'll see I'm gonna make you bleed I'LL TAKE YOU DOWN, 'CAUSE NOW IT'S TIME TO DEAL WITH THE RAGE

With truth there comes hurt... regret... and hate... Bitterness and spite... you burn... you scar... Can't tell wrong from right... you cut... you bleed... Self-loathing and lies... you cry... you try To open up your eyes Look down and see my broken heart These lies are tearing me apart I will accept no substitution I'm going for the violent solution With life there comes pain... strain... crush... It bears down on your soul... weaken... collapse... Give up and give in... to sin... can't win... Bring it fucking down... (The ones who spite you) (The lies that bind you) (The hate that drives you) ...Open up your eyes Look down and see my broken heart These lies are tearing me apart I will accept no substitution I'm going for the violent solution

Dead Inside 03:41
Another walking corpse Another hollow shell Another one that you decided to send STRAIGHT TO HELL Another soul is lost Another man has died Another one that you decided to leave DEAD INSIDE I don't want you to make me DEAD INSIDE I won't let you break me DEAD INSIDE How much more can I take 'til I'm DEAD INSIDE? SO DEAD INSIDE? SO DEAD INSIDE! When did your heart go cold? When did you lose your mind? And who let you decide I needed to be CRUCIFIED Another soul is lost Another man has died Another one that you decided to leave DEAD INSIDE I don't want you to make me DEAD INSIDE I won't let you break me DEAD INSIDE How much more can I take 'til I'm DEAD INSIDE? SO DEAD INSIDE? SO DEAD INSIDE! I don't want you to make me... I won't let you make me... How much more can I take 'til I'm... How much more can you fucking take from me?

All by myself, I used to be a good person But in my heart there was a darkness inside Put on a smile for everybody around me Harder and harder every time I lied What is this voice I suddenly hear inside me? Pulling me down every time that I try Seeing the end where once there was a future And now all I want to do is die I want to leave it all behind I want to take a step into the light I wanna be the person that I used to be Before I went to the dark side of the sun I wanna leave it all behind But this anger cannot be denied So I'm just gonna lock myself inside And that's what keeps me alone There was a time I knew the meaning of "happy" I was a boy who thought the future was bright Every day people wanted to see me Now every day seems to be dark as night What have I done to deserve what I've been feeling? What do I do to stop the hate that's inside? Is there a place on this earth without hurting? And is there somewhere there that I can hide? I want to leave it all behind I want to take a step into the light I wanna be the person that I used to be Before I went to the dark side of the sun I wanna leave it all behind But this anger cannot be denied So I'm just gonna lock myself inside And that's what keeps me alone All by myself, I'm just a ghost of a person And in my heart there's only darkness inside Can't even smile for anybody around me Can't see a future worth living this lie I used to be the one that people looked up to I used to be the one with something inside I used to be someone with something to live for Not just a husk sitting and waiting to die I want to leave it all behind I want to take a step into the light I wanna be the person that I used to be Before I went to the dark side of the sun I wanna leave it all behind But this anger cannot be denied So I'm just gonna lock myself inside And that's what keeps me alone

about

This album is a collection of songs I wrote between the age of 11 (Sever the Connection) to 16. I've had these songs playing over and over in my head for decades and after applying all I've learned about recording, programming, production, e.t.c., I feel they're ready to come out and be heard by the world. The guitar riffs, lyrics, vocal melodies, drum patterns, basslines and some of the synth is unchanged from when they were first conceived, but these were all produced within the past year or two.
I hope you enjoy taking this trip down the rabbit hole that was my teenage years and the birth of what I knew would one day become Nuclear*Sun.
