about

"Dogs barking and shitting all over, incessantly. Screaming matches through bathroom doors during lunch breaks, daily. The walls shaking from stereo sub-woofer booms of the most vulgar and angry death metal ever heard, constantly. The “crash, boom, bang” of plates and glasses being knocked from their perches or, in some instances, being launched across the house. A stack of bills leading to more fights and arguments. Grenade booms and machine gun sound effects of WWII themed video games going off into the twilight hours of the morn (no thanks to yours truly). The word “loser” tossed around more than it ever should be. A recycling bin consistently filled to the brim with plastic Sobieski brand vodka bottles (which I was also partly responsible for). Sadly, towards the end of "The Seventh House" era, we all became responsible for that over flowing recycling bin. Though, In the center of this maelstrom of chaos, in the corner of a room, one man found solace where he created most of what would become the final product you are holding in your hands. A living room in Bergen County, New Jersey was the birthplace of these tunes of the tormented. From that dysfunction came something to share with those of you who have ever felt depression and lost love. Although, this album does not only boast the scars of heartbreak. There is hope and a phoenix-like rebirth to be sung about in these tunes as well. A middle finger to depression and the shackles of its stranglehold, a pessimism of finding a new lover and a new admiration for another. The whole gamut of emotions that correlate with love. Add in the grunting and 4-chord progressions of punk rock and here you have this album. Besides the occasional exodus to Old Town Inn out in Suffern, I had bore witness to the entire accounts that transpired in that house up until its final day. This album is a true representation of those days and of everyone who lived under that dilapidated roof on Seventh Avenue."

A Nightmare on Seventh Avenue

Darling yourhalf empty glass
Drowns me with frustration
Your best is turning for the worst
In these rooms there’s no control
No Communication
I’m running out of simple ways

She Changed
She Changed
But you swore it’d always be the same
She Changed
She Changed
But you swore it’d always be the same
She Changed
Into you

I hate to see it end like this
I can’t believe I’m
So stupid
It wasn’t supposed to end like this
I can’t believe I’m
So stupid

Actions that defy your words
YOUR WORDS DEFY YOUR ACTIONS!
Ya don’t deserve this stupid song (Bitch)
Apologies to all my friends
No appreciation
I love you all, you took her in

But………

She Changed
She Changed
But you swore it’d always be the same
She Changed
She Changed
But you swore it’d always be ^ the same
She Changed
Into you

I hate to see it end like this
I can’t believe I’m
So stupid
It wasn’t supposed to end like this
I can’t believe I’m
So stupid

So Stupid
Track Name: Anything You Want
Anything You Want

Here we go all over again,
I found her picking Daisies.
I swore Id never feel this way again.
Lost and blind, content in love,
Her smile blinds my eyes
I hope that I don’t fuck this up again.

Not this time
(Ill do the right thing)
In past times
(It never felt so right)
Not this time
(Not letting you go)
Forever
Be together, stay forever, make our fucking dreams come true.

I would do anything ya want
And ill do anything you need
Just keep on callin

Here I creep all draped in black
You’ll find me pushing daisies
I’m cleaning up to be the best for you.
Please deal with my putrid smell
Dumb words and imperfections.
Back from the dead, I'm doing this for you.
Track Name: Better Dead Than Wed
Drunk at 9 AM a cofee cup contains our love
Drunk at 9 AM again

Baby your better dead than wed maybe your better dead
No heart and soul
My heart and soul

Back at 9PM shes stumbling right through my door
Back at 9PM again
Bottles next to our bed again
Passed out and drunk again
No heart and soul
My heart and soul
Track Name: Full Moon Rising
Full Moon Rising

Run fast my darling you won’t want to see all the bloodshed in store for tonight
Dusk on horizons you’d better get going
Run Fast!
'Cause you’re running for your life

I’m running circles round this town
Even her blood cant stop this craving
I’m sniffing out her scent, her hair, her blood, our love
Can’t stop this sating.

So don’t go out tonight
I’m bound to take your life
Said don’t go out tonight
I’m bound to take your life
So don’t go out tonight
TONIGHT!
(You’ll see)

Stay with me
Through this lycanthrope
The moon its full tonight
This bloodlust, it’s killing me
Stay with me
Through this insanity
The moon grows full tonight
And this bloodlust, it’s killing me
Track Name: Don't Believe
Don’t Believe

I'd climb up the highest mountain
Just to see my self fall down and die
I try
But enough is not enough
And I can never be enough
I wanna be enough
It’s true
I got a funny feeling that i’m not the one you thinks the one you thinks for you
Sad but true

I don’t believe
I don’t believe

When all is lost then I’m to blame, I’m always lost and with the blame, can’t believe
Don’t believe
So turn your back and run away
You’ll find me sitting in a land of empty promise with my pockets full of
Fingers crossed, false hope, and empty dreams

I don’t believe
I don’t believe
Track Name: Teenage Dreams
Teenage Dreams

Well I Bet You Never Knew,
That a Year Ago I Drowned
I Drowned Inside the Deepest
Of the Blue
Been 18 Years Now,
Same Lifeless Zombie Frown
Been 18 years down,
I'm Still Falling

Look at Me Now, Im Still Falling Down
Look at Me Now, Bet ya Never Seen a Monster Cry
I Want to Know, True Love Doesn't Die
I Want You to Know, That This Love’s Not a Lie

Well, Whenever you need me,
I'll Be 6 feet Underground
I'll Lie and Think of Precious
Times We Had
Remember Teenaged Dreams,
My Fondest Memories
Slow Dances in the Sand,
It's All Gone Now!!

Look at Me Now, Still Falling Down
Look at Me Now, Bet ya Never Seen a Monster Cry
I Want You to Know, True Love Doesn't Die
I Want You to Know, I Still Wonder Why

Look at Me Now, Still Falling Down
Look at Me Now, Bet ya Never Seen a Monster Cry
I Want You to Know, True Love Doesn't Die
I Want You to Know, That I Drowned Inside Your Eyes

Where Have You Gone?
Where Have You Gone?
Where Have You Gone?
My Sweet 'Lina, Where Are You Now?

I Drowned Right Inside Your Eyes
Track Name: Welcome To My Nightmare
Welcome To My Nightmare

Another dark and lonely night
I lie and think of you, yeah
Do you think of me?
Monotonous nights and dreams of you.
Welcome to my nightmares, may my dreams come true...

The stench of love is in the air
(I fuckin' hope you smell it)
'Cause it's choking me
I let my skeletons out to play
My closet’s empty now
There's room for you

I should have seen it coming
Another stab wound in my back
Still standing right here bleeding
Whoa!
Guess I’m not good enough for you

I found a better way
I should have seen the signs
I found a better way and I can't see you
My wasted words and time
You'll never see through mine
My wasted words and time were all for nothing

If I’m not good enough fuck you!
