about

Everglades is a 173bpm dnb-esque song I wrote from December 12, 2016 to January 18, 2017 over a span of 80 hours. It's a song about what could be, and It's a song I hold dearly to my heart in a time of great uncertainty.

A few months ago, I went back and forth on whether or not to release everglades with or without vocals. Inevitably, I decided to release an instrumental mix of everglades as it was and follow it with the definitive version I wanted -- one with emphasis on songwriting, and as such, this was the result.

about

FUTURTOPIA

Cynical and dishonest intention makes our media meaningless. I come here to escape the varying shades of dishonesty, replacing it with an authentic musical representation indicative of what sounds I enjoy hearing. The end result is a musical project called FUTURTOPIA. ... more

Track Name: everglades
You play the same cards and you'll be okay
but you'll never be the things you want to be.
To you it's all the same,
no means to change your ways,
'cause you're stuck up thinking everything will come your way.
I show you all the other things
But in your cold denial I've become the enemy
I guess that's what I get for saying the things I say,
so won't you leave me be and don't expect a single thing.


Take pause and remember who you're meant to be.
Transcend all of space and sky,
until you've found some empathy.
'Cause til' you've made the call
to signal what you see,
you'll struggle aimlessly
rafting amidst a swampy sea.


Why do we even try?
Nothing appears to be on our side.
It takes so much to try and to just be,
when nobody cares, though it seems.

The things you can do to convince yourself that nothing matters
I know so well
I could never try to be
somebody that I ain't
I've tried you see.

I know
I know
I know
I know

How much it takes to try and be something you're not.
[To try and be something you want]

Take pause and remember who you're meant to be.
Transcend all of space and sky,
until you've found some empathy.
'Cause til' you've made the call
and signal what you've seen,
you'll struggle aimlessly
rafting amidst a swampy sea.

[oh!]
Track Name: everglades (instrumental mix)
you play the same cards
and you'll be okay
but you'll never be the things you wanna be
