about

We came together as a band about 4 months ago. Over that time we developed a sound that is distinctly O'rchard. Themes of positivity and ambition, strife and contemplation... With a home-made garage band sound, this album is the result of that journey.

Track Name: Another Day
Steps forward, feel in reverse.
I wish there was a way to verify the choice is right.
You can't stop at the start, maybe this was not intended to get very far.

But I won't quit, that won't be worth it.
My mind is made up, this path is decided.
I am so afraid what the distance brings, or of what tomorrow holds.
But I know that if I just take things one day at a time everything will be alright.

Im full of hope, steel like will
I know the course is rocky, but I will never yield.
Distractions block progress
An equal balance is the key to happiness.

(x2)
But I won't quit, that won't be worth it.
My mind is made up, this path is decided.
I am so afraid what the distance brings, or of what tomorrow holds.
But I know that if I just take things one day at a time everything will be alright.

Worrying about yesterdays problems keep me from facing today.
The only solution is to set sail, in search of a better day.
Track Name: Aftermath
A knife slips deep into the spine of the country side.
Cityscapes escape their fate, swallowing their pride.
Whats left to gain besides the pain of percussive lies?
Upon the ground a man has found something else to take.

But Ill break much like the steel sure and strong
To stand tidal waves that eat us all.

A mask clung tight alleves the fright of what we've done
Like tearing holes and breaking molds, to burn hot like the sun
Suck the fuel you stubborn mules, and see what she becomes.
Apollo steals another day, we're closer to our fate.

We face the aftermath of what we have done
Then men will reject the blame because, "I'm not one."
Track Name: Subtle Touch of Life
Sifting through unsuitable skin
to wear atop my skeleton.
I am obliged to waste my time
for a three lettered man.
Paper thin string-bound hands
filled with white envelopes
dash my hopes of ever living.
Slaves we are by Might and Pain.

People are good at letting you down
Give as much, but don't expect the same
Your voice is sure, they will refrain
and you'll mean well

Women scream from beneath their hell
While all types of humans help
and as we all open our eyes
What you might find comes a surprise

People are good at letting you down
Give as much, but don't expect the same
Your voice is sure, they will refrain
and you'll mean well

You can trust no one to stand up
on your behalf, you are it
I hope that I am wrong
Ill find out soon enough
so stand up

People are good, give them a chance
Give as much, I promise Ill give it back
Your voice is sure, Ill stand by your side
and we'll mean well
Track Name: Become a Myth
I was crippled from the blow, given to me years ago
I've yet to rise from the ash, when I burned up in my past
Water seeped into my seems, I split apart in the freeze.
Wind and gravel graze my face, my skeleton stays in its place.
No one can save the wretch not meant to last

I am the shadow on the floor, concealed beneath a brutal force
Suppression tries to snuff me out, and disregards my swelling doubt
If I could do what I wish, leave my life and become a myth
Remain alive by word of mouth, lifting up those who cannot get out
A nomad no man can resent, a heart of gold he'd give for sense.

I will not fail because you know my end is imminent
I will not give in to sadistic voices tormenting
In the night, the color spectrum fades to black and white
This absence of color does not mean there is no light

But at the end of my road, when I face the dead end sign
And I turn to hold a friend, only to find my empty side
The pain my lack of family brings, will surely drag a blade through me
And as I set I wont give up, to live and die will be enough

I will not fail because you know my end is imminent
I will not give in to sadistic voices tormenting
In the night, the color spectrum fades to black and white
This absence of color does not mean there is no light
Track Name: Twilight Song
Everything I say is an uncertainty.
Its always been me. It never was we.
I don't know what you want anymore
Resting behind that impenetrable door.
There's just no way to hold back the river.
Let the tide ride don't fight the flood.

In a love composed of one
The notes struggle to make a chord.
The words address predicaments
That no one relates to because its too late.

Indulge in the poison of hopeless lovers.
When you're scared of the dark
It will consume your heart
sometimes I pretend I'm someone else.
That usually makes me sad, and that never helps.
Standing on fractured ground means soon i will fall down.
Where were you? Where were you?

Sorry is just a word, now distance hurts.

In a love composed of one
The notes struggle to make a chord.
The words address predicaments
That no one relates to because its too late.

Break me down, make no sound,
Leave me high and dry
I don't want to hear excuses
Your absent love have left me numb.

In a love composed of one.
(Break me down, make no sound)
The note struggle to make a chord.
(Leave me high and dry.)
The words address predicaments.
(I don't want to hear excuses)
That no one relates to because its too late.
(Your absent love has left me numb.)
Track Name: An Anthem
The thought of love is just too much for the things I plan to do.
I came out to this place tonight, now I have set my sights on you.
We both know that wont be enough, to satisfy my divine lust.

I gave you yours, now give me mine. That's what I payed for.

What do we do with our lives, besides shuffle day by day.
Living in this miserable away, the same sad hotel challenging me with hopes to get payed.

The thought of love is just too much for the things I plan to do.
I came out to this place tonight, now I have set my sights on you.
We both know that wont be enough, to satisfy my divine lust.

I gave you yours, now give me mine. That's what I payed for.

I filled out my time.
Yet another bottle beckons me from the counter, it stands solitary.

So I put on another dirty shirt, and I get up of work. And I play the same song. Suppose that I call it my anthem.
Track Name: A Gift to Give
I remember before things were hard, I had a plan to go very far
everything was telling me
Don't give up hope, if you do than you're through.
So I sang out loud and did what I had to
But life bit back and there you have the reason i quit.

I don't want to see, the challenges facing me. I fear they will grip my hopes and tear the life out of my dreams. I know that I can't live without my gift to give, so despite those warnings I will carry on.

I remember my very first show, nobody around hardly would know me
and all the signs before my eyes said
Don't give up hope, if you do than you're through
So I sang out proud and did what I knew to
and out there on the limb I felt the wind begin to shift. That's when I arrived.

The music was loud and gave me direction, so I made a friend and we strive for perfection. We would write all night until our eyes felt heavy. I had to face the sound of possibly falling down, no one knew how scared and stupid I had thought I was. But in the end a broken glass is better than to regret the past. Ill give my all until there is nothing left.

I remember how it used to be, overwhelming doubt constantly growing. That was life before, but now I'm finally sure.

I don't want to see, the challenges facing me. I fear they will grip my hopes and tear the life out of my dreams. I know that I can't live without my gift to give, so despite those warnings I will carry on.
Track Name: Self Portrait
I can not stand to see this grizzly mug reflecting me.
Stare too long and soon you'll find something truly disgusting.
Scaring chasm, sloping spasms that I follow with my eye, oh how I pray to god his fallen angel takes my life.

Leaping off of building tops or crashing into dirt
Sinking leagues under the sea or trapped in pitch black caves
As this path guides me back to the place where I have came
You can't forget the roots, and you can't neglect the pain.

Hazardous material should label on my chest.
Stare too long and I'll infect innocent victims.
Please steer clear, don't write, don't call, don't feel sorry for me.
In the end I know I am the best worst person.

Ohh, Leaping off of building tops or crashing into dirt
Sinking leagues under the sea or trapped in pitch black caves
As this path guides me back to the place where I have came
You can't forget the roots, and you can't forget the pain.

To think that I have talent unique and so profound, means that I have neglected evidence that would sprout doubt.

I am nothing... A called out failure... A shell of a human...
Controlled by the disease infected back when I was young, making me forever numb.
Forever numb to everything...
So buy it! Sell it! Make everyone in the world feel it!
Cry for me! Laugh at me! and Help me plunge in my own knife!
Run from what I have become, if only I had wings
Tell your lover don't forget, that I'm a miserable thing...
Track Name: Spherical Prison
She come to me and hurts my eyes.
What once was real is my disguise.
The light behind my raisin frame burns a scar into my brain.
I don't know when I'll be clean again
but until then, she wont leave my side.
The thoughts that pulsate through my mind
are of life, and if I can find the time for me to develop purpose.
I just don't know if this is worth it.
I don't know when I'll be clean again
but until then, she won't leave my side.

Even though she makes me bleed, I still love her everything.
The melodies that her heart beats writes a symphony inside of me
and, these endless days are fracturing. My vocal chords can't form a scream.
I need to break the cycle, and escape from this Shperical Prison.

So I let her break me down and empty my body of sound.
She felt obliged to force my fate, with her poison I can't escape.
The walls are hollow with what makes me sick with sorrow.
So I let her take the best I had to give.
Now I make myself the king of my eternal hell!

Even though she makes me bleed, I still love her everything.
The melodies that her heart beats writes a symphony inside of me
and, these endless days are fracturing. My vocal chords can't form a scream.
I need to break the cycle, and escape from this Shperical Prison.
Track Name: Night Drive
She just walked in
Her eyes touched me
I'm just waiting
I'm noy gonna talk about it
That's her
I like her mouth, it's really full
My hair looks so dumb
"is everything okay over here?"
You can't make me shake to that
How old do you think she is?
How old do you think I look?
I was captivated at first glance
I just got chills and I can't hide
I don't think I can do it
I don't know what words to say
What do I do after I get her number?
...
I'd probably still do her dead body
& yes she likes sides
I'm sorry, i didn't mean to leave without getting your number
she's engaged
