NEW WORKS is a five-movement suite that focuses on the idea that everything in rock and popular music has already been accomplished. Its composition eliminated the use of lead guitar hooks, complex song forms, and dense harmonic progressions in order to focus on the bare bones that music interesting, and evokes a catharsis through simplicity.

WE'VE SEEN ALL OF THIS BEFORE.
NOTHING IN THE WORLD IS NEW.
IT'S ALL BEEN DONE.
Track Name: III. Adagio
Speak. Say something.
Let me know you’re still alive out there.
Say what’s on your mind.
Wait. Hold out.
Let’s just see what happens next.
Is there something here?
Breathe in. Listen.
Feel what’s hidden in the air.
Something’s in your chest.
Songs are in your ear.
Reach out. Try again.
Live a life like there’s still hope to have.
Act like you’re alive.
LET IT HAPPEN NOW WHILE YOU ARE HERE.
WE WILL LET YOU HAVE A HEART.
Track Name: V. Andante + Allegro
I’d give up my days just to sleep through the night.
I’d live forever just to see the light.
I’d travel the world just to find a home.
I’d burn all my pictures to reflect on how I’ve grown.
I’d search through the heavens to find a ghost.
I’d reach the highest heights just to see how I lost.
I’d stay close to the ground to watch myself fall.
I’d look back on life just to see I’ve done it all.
