christopherchild A more delicate side of his releases captured in processed piano, vocal artistry, and lush cinematic string arrangements. There is a raw honestly and directness that is as emotionally moving as it is sonically compelling.

My means seem crude Yet cause stays true While worlds apart A child at heart To improvise Is ill-advised As no surprise I love goodbyes No spirit left My will is spent See you there On the other side Calling out to me The undying dream Of moving on to the afterlife

A kiss gone stale Eyes hazed and pale I knew it was your time to leave To explore, to love, fearlessly live out your dreams And here I stand, Stuck in this town that wants me gone All our days, they passed me by, without notice Two of us against the world That was the dream, the hope, I held so close Is it still somewhere out there for me? To fall in love, have kids, to grow old into the night But all my dreams, seem to pass me by, without consent And all my dreams, in the end, seem to laugh, and abandon me Help me out, I've lost my faith I'm in the dark, alone, give me something to believe Picking up the unanswered calls of destiny Pains to say, I can't recall, Is this the first time I ever did Is it time, am I there? Is it time, are you there? Marred by defeat My providence moves away, staring back at me And all I need is a destiny that I want to believe, it belongs to me

I fought hard to find my inner peace Rain or shine, your filth is leaking in I dig deep, and dig too greedily To integrate the shadow and the flame It's time To be the man Who rains fire Reigns supreme Pretentious know-it-alls With your void of a contribution What are you fighting for? It's the end of the line A done disgrace It's gone on and on for far too long It's time To be the man Who rains fire Reigns supreme Call forth the beast Behind the mask A raging fire Raising hell Your replications sound the same Steal from the best and stamp your name It's not your fault you miss the mark Most birds can't choose the song they sing I fought hard to find my inner peace Rain or shine, your filth is leaking in I dig deep, and dig too greedily To integrate the shadow and the flame It's time To be the man Who rains fire Reigns supreme

I commit blasphemy, put a dent in history I’ll see this blasted timeline is put to death To them it’s alchemy At the edge of fantasy Occupying their beloved odds is what we do To them we’re no more than lost profligates Until we descend to change the world I wish to bid farewell and depart this mortal shell Make the cut and bleed out what’s trapped inside I detest reality And its boundless apathy What untold madness drives you to see it through To them we’re no more than lost profligates Until we descend to change the world

Her fame in pain Plays a dormant part she can’t control I promise patience, but my heart runs dry The way she moves Tells the story of a broken heart I love her dearly, but her past must die Let me in Don’t go where I can’t follow you Chasing demons that are not there In this starless fate The end passes beyond my sight I can’t walk with you Not while you still court death Gilded memories And ones that have not yet come to pass They’re worth fighting for Worth witnessing first-hand Let me in Don’t go where I can’t follow you Chasing Demons that are not there Nestle in my arms To whatever end I’ll fight for you Don’t you dare give in now Come back to me

Tell me what you want from me I ask in anger Feels like you've abandoned me Don't tell me the light of youth is leaving me I always thought it'd go on I was imagining I always thought I always, always thought It would go on and on Go on and on and on I lean into you Yet you're departing me I am faithless At loss of what you ask of me And by all accounts this shouldn't be happening I took good care of you In turn you gave nothing I always thought I always, always thought It would go on and on Go on and on and on
