about

Released in late 2013, A Necessary Season was a collection of songs written and recorded for my new project Kaanvas. This album was a result of a failed band, failed relationship, and identity crisis. After several unsuccessful attempts to record and gather a band, I resulted in recording this album in my bedroom with my pc. The release was between friends, family, and local acquaintances. I had not pursued a wide press release and made no attempt to market it. I hope you Enjoy!

Track Name: A Cold Bloom
A cold bloom, stay back
my arms retract
I won't hear a word

Say not styles
heartbeats smiles
I don't, feel a curse

It wouldn't be honest of me, A promise from the start.
I want to be everything confide envy tonight
I want to be anything apart from glimpse of ghosts
I want to be everything but lost

My eyes they weep
Your face they keep
I try embracing chance

don't cry your heart
is not as dark
the sky that rains on me

For you to find
For you to find, For you to find
Believing I won't go, I'm running out
Believing you won't stop, I'm running out

Let's talk regrets, one last regress
This ends peacefully
Track Name: Thieves
How am I to rescue and who am I to rescue you
Pick you up and take the pain away away

How am I to hold on and why am I to hold on to you
Be your shield and wipe the tears away
away

Oh are we blind just another attempt to take to me for a fool
It hurts inside But thieves are known for breaking all the rules...

how am I to carry, and who am I to carry you
And be the one to take the pain away away
how am I to capture and who am I to capture you
be your strength and wipe the tears away away

Your hands enjoy the silence it's not fair
your hair the smell of science I don't care
I don't I don't I don't

how am I to latch on and who am I to latch on to you
hold you up and tear the pain away away
how am I to listen and who am I to listen to you
hold your lungs and take your breath away away
Track Name: Play Dead
Is it really worth it now the time you take but you're never gonna take it
Is it really worth it now and I would say not so

Is it really strange right now that I could sleep but I would never want to wake up
Is it really strange somehow the need to feel alone

But I'm not over you and not over this
so I guess I'll have to play dead
Is it really worth it how I ignorantly drone

Its obvious you're through with this
I wish that I could say the same for me
It's hard to feel the way you thought of it
When it wasn't quite the same as me

Is it really wrong sometimes to hide the sun while you're waiting for the night time
is it really wrong at times to lie within the rain

Is it really odd just how your sheets are warm but your stomach doesn't feel right
Is it really odd somehow the moon can share your pain

But I'm not over you and not over this
so I guess I'll have to play dead
Is it really worth it how I ignorantly drone

When you fall in when you fall
when you fall
Think about it about it all
Think about it all
When you fall in when you fall
when you fall
Like you wanted and you won

Is it really strange right now that I could sleep but I would never want to wake up
is it really strange right now the need to feel alone

But I'm not over you and not over this
so I guess I'll have to play dead
Is it really worth it how I ignorantly drone
Track Name: Patience
Wait on your patience stay on your laments and you oughta know
when you're underestimated

prey to your patience slave to your cadence
but you want to know, are you an ordinary presence.

all that's said is dead and gone
your heart was not affected once not once.

well you never wanted anything you said was not worth fighting
what were you fighting for
you weren't the only one fallin apart but I'm dying just to save you

Wait for your patience stay with your laments
if you're gonna show your ever ending statements

Prey for your patience a slave to your cadence
but you oughtta know that you're an ordinary presence

While you and I have stones we want to throw
I can't deny I've broken all the bones in your soul

Just to save you

And my craving hurts but I'll decide
that you decide you decided
in my raging urge but all aside
while you decide you decided
to go the other way

well I saw your face the other day and you looked fine
and I started to think that you would miss me
but I went the other way
Track Name: The Summit
Carry yourself hard and carry yourself on and your honesty
you will not be me and I will not be you are you wanted here
but you wont be far far from me when you need me most
carry yourself hard and carry yourself on when your honesty is gone

Even love has no fear to die forever
Even I will see you there to warn the safety
you're not the best not the best in a long time
I feel you shakin you're longing to run

Carry yourself hard and carry yourself on, and your honesty
lead me to the top lead me to the top are we all alone
but you won't see me there without your heart without your heart
Step outside the edge step outside the edge and you're faster after all

In a crowded view a crowded view I'm not that better
its hard for me to say
that I'm proud of you I'm proud of you, are you feeling better
Its hard for me this way

Carry yourself hard and carry yourself on, and your honesty
take me around take me around is it cold in here
but you want it all one of me the best of you
carry yourself hard carry yourself on when your honesty is gone
Track Name: Girl Made of City
When we're around, she is so pretty
The talk of the town, the girl made of city
Girl made of city

We sit here, what seems like a long time
But never a long time to feel the breath of motion

Keep sincere the attic is leaking
The static is shrieking to feel the warmth of the ocean

Late at night I imagine her smiling.
It's 3am but I am not hiding
She speaks in my ears her words are not lying.
but she disappears and I started crying
I started crying

It's my design that keeps me from your toes
The voice inside that's keeping me alone
In modest need of loving you is so
I take apart my heart for you

When I'm around she is so pretty
The love of my life, the girl made of city
Girl made of city
Track Name: Talk to Me
I'm carelessly consumed, apart from me is you
Tell me something

Like tape across my eyes hard to recognize
Say something

Does it really hurt there
That isn't much worse than my mistakes my mistakes
Does it really hurt there
It isn't much worse than my mistakes my mistakes

The sight of sinners gaze streak across my face
Show me nothing
We're lost within a dream made for you and me
So say something

Talk to me Talk to me
Speak to me Speak to me
Track Name: Heart Stone
I found a reason I found a reason
That I don't love you for a long time ago

I found a reason I found a reason
That I wouldn't want to with miles left go

But you don't have to remind me
That you were meant to fly
And when you lay beside me
I feel the hurt inside eyes

Don't let your Heart stone break
Let your heart stone break
Don't break down

It's been a long time It's been a long time
Since I found you since I found once before

And I don't need you and I don't need to
Explain to cancer why I don't want it anymore

Well you don't want me here
well I can't make you understand
reach inside your ear
and I will try to understand
There's nothing for me here
But you can't deny its safe

Don't let your heart stone break
Let your heart stone break
Don't break down
Track Name: Wings
How do we know this is not fear itself that hides itself in me
How do we know this is not reasoning
How am I sure this is not compromise that sets its eyes on me
How am I sure of all of this black that fills the night

Let me put my wings back on
Let me put my wings back on and fly away

Why can't I see that this was never meant irrelevant to me
Why can't I see that I am pulling teeth
How do we know this is not selflessness that takes its best from me
How am I sure of all this evergreen in my eyes

Haven't you felt the rain and how it falls down
In your eyes
A crack in the picture frame its hold on but its leaking out
its leaking out
Haven't you felt the rain and how it falls down
in your eyes
A crack in the painters tape its holding on but its leaking out
its leaking out

How do we know this is not fear itself that hides itself in me
How do we know this is not reasoning
Track Name: Selfish
I said too much but not enough
They said that it hurts but it always hurts

When you stay away my thoughts turn grey
One love apart one lonely art

and I want you all my own
As i'm reaching for the phone
I hope you are all alone
I am selfish
Oh selfish me

While the nights are strong too strong to touch
My dreams are safe not safe enough

You make me smile will you stay awhile
And dance with the moon I will be there soon

And I want you all my own
As I'm reaching for the phone
I am scared and all alone
I am selfish
whoa selfish me!
Selfish me!!!
Yeah

We said too much but not enough
They said that it hurts but it always hurts
