about

It is with great pleasure that we give you, Golden Silence. We've been hard at work molding our passion into something that can reflect every essence of our beings. All of this wouldn't be possible if not for James Lewis of Forerunner Recordings and Austin Coupe of Lights Out Recordings. Thank you for breathing life into these sounds we so dearly love and cherish. Thank you to each and every one of our dearest friends and family for the continuous support we couldn't have gotten this far without you. These songs mean the world to us, they're all we have, and now they are yours as well.

Track Name: Lost July
I speak in tongues cause I don’t owe you one
Taught to tear the pages slowly just to keep it troublesome
Self aware, oh by the by, see no love lives your eyes
Only a host who tries to hide behind dollar signs

So sincerely, I write this on the tapestry
Tap in that vein and watch it spew in pageantry
Live and ascend, no starving for my brothers
See your savior in those seconds of dirt cover

Yo, I got no love for these heathens
And I’m breaking bread with the locals just like it’s breathing
Oh, you want some meaning? Boy, you want some truth?
Well you won’t find it in that vice, you won’t find it in that book

Need a purge, so in love
With that sin, oh just cause
Round and round and round we go
No time to tip toe

Choose right and you might die
Choose wrong and you might die
What's the point of this shit
If I don’t even feel alive?

I remember late nights in the valley
Rarely a rookie in zones from Tamp to Tally
Few foes tallied and I never gave you up a bit
Even with the hand that I held you with

And these summer's sewn in sweat
Pressed with the tears I pushed on my chest
Some unjust, it’s not all luck
Still won’t budge an inch, this ship will go unsunk

As the tide moves on and on and on...

The air is too thin
Now where do I end and the next phase begin?
This is life here
Live and let die here

Talk is cheap, gap with no leap
Lead to the point where the winds meet the East
This is life here
Live and let die here

Came for the valuables stashed in the hour glass
First and foremost when it’s half past the middle dash
My pack is thirsty, shovels can’t unearth me
Reign reaches out the grave with zero mercy

As we're here to pave our own way
Through the trials may the tried and true never sway
Hit it on the dot, point blank, going day to day
Need we say, more and more, from the depths to the shore

As the tide moves on and on and on
Come around now
It’s all proving ground now

The air is too thin
Now where do I end and the next phase begin?
This is life here
Live and let die here

Talk is cheap, gap with no leap
Lead to the point where the winds meet the East
This is life here
Live and let die here

It's just an ends to a mean
You follow brick roads, it is we who lead
Do dirt to complete these deeds
I know everything I ever said was everything I really dream and they’ll...

And they’ll watch me ascend (Watch me)
And they’ll watch me ascend again and again
And they’ll watch me ascend (Watch me)
Let the mother fuckers watch me ascend

The air is too thin
Now where do I end and the next phase begin?
This is life here
Live and let die here

Talk is cheap, gap with no leap
Lead to the point where the winds meet the East
This is life here
Live and let die here
Track Name: Unto You
Heavy with hoping, oh my beg your pardon
Home is where the heart is but mine’s always hardened
With every promise swear it won’t be forgotten
With every strike swear this sword will be sharpened

I can’t go back when there was no drive
Tired eyes lie, I’m still very alive
Unapologetic, this’ll hurt if you let it
One foot out the door, the future is silhouetted

Aint it sweet? Lullabies and pretty things?
Brought you some flowers, don’t you remember me?
Silly me, sicken fiend, don’t owe you a fucking thing
Say it with me, I don’t owe you a fucking thing

I said I’d never let it get the best of me
And I know just how far it goes
Gutted from the summer moving work in the cold

This was all I ever wanted to be
And I’m human with the motion
Gotta be careful I might drown in the ocean

Relentless, wrecking havoc
Partial to the Midas touch you’ll have it
Chalk it up to habit
In my darkest hours the waves wake from ashes

And with my two hands, I do produce this
And I don’t need your word to approve this
Attuned here taking all that I can here
Listen closely, tell me what you can hear

Is it the thought to the end of the drought?
Is it the howls at the door you locked us out?
Is it the hand bent grasping for more?
Is it the fact that we’re more than what you bargained for?

I said I’d never let it get the best of me
And I know just how far it goes
Gutted from the summer moving work in the cold

This was all I ever wanted to be
And I’m human with the motion
Gotta be careful I might drown in the ocean

Witness me, this is what I breathe

Witness me!

And I don’t owe you

And I don’t owe you a fucking thing
Track Name: Ghosts n' Goblins
Whirlwind spitting splitters at the dome of God
Hola pawns, brace with haste as I ripple in your pond
Rip songs and swans like unholstered wands
Not paying attention for a second will show you I’m the one

Possibly an anomaly since fire walked with me
All my plans mastered, all my deeds dastardly
Haphazard crash course, whole clique my first course
Of course what’s in store echoes till my voice hoarse

Highten sense, I’m focused
If you didn’t, you know this
Slipping cyanide in every verses till I hone this
Its potent and you’re patient
Patience for missed payments
Now watch your mouth when you’re speaking to

ME

You're rrelevant rivals, no time for you minors
Minus the mayhem and my points are finer
I feast with apostles, chalice and diner
Is filled to the brim after paying pied pipers

If you want it, come and get it
Mind your manners and your business
Any problems get to fixing
Witness this and have a listen

YOU WILL RESPECT ME

Time is of essences
The future is my presences
Present is a moment where I morph from adolescent
To the man you see before you
While this all pours through
Don’t you see I’m every light that guides you?

This gun's a bible and the bullet a sermon
And I’m that serpant in your garden turning tricks for Eve’s yearning
Its concerning and certain you’ll reach the point of no return
If you can’t admit it now, there’s no room for future learning but...

YOU WONT DIE FOR YOUR DESIRES
YOUR DESIGNS NOT INSPIRED
(Featuring James Lewis of Nomadic)

I heed words through heat burns, caverns and sea storms
See forth and I’m on course to be this and be more
Not before I beat you, this battle and war
Always on par and I’ll fucking take it all from you

If you want it, come and get it
Mind your manners and your business
Any problems get to fixing
Witness this and have a listen

YOU WILL RESPECT ME

Time is of essences
The future is my presences
Present is a moment where I morph from adolescent
To the man you see before you
While this all pours through
Don’t you see I’m every light that guides you?

YOU WILL RESPECT ME

Tampa terorrist, true to what the terror is
Link between realities and where the Earth's Eden is
Bleeding quips equipped clips, held by the ones who sit
At round tables, where messiahs speak from lip

Realize I redefine the concepts you fail to find (I WILL)
Reaching out, grabbing summers wind in the winter time (NOT FADE AWAY)
Do a little, do a lot, fuck yours, I’m getting mine (I WILL)
It matters not, I’ll infiltrate your muddy mind (BECOME A GOD)

AND YOU WILL RESPECT ME

And no matter how far you go
(I WILL NOT FADE AWAY I WILL BECOME A GOD)
You will respect me
(I WILL NOT FADE AWAY AND YOU WILL)
And you'll see all that I've done and you will

YOU WONT DIE FOR YOUR DESIRES

YOUR DESIGNS NOT INSPIRED
Track Name: Weapons Are Not Fine Wines
We seek the apple of one's eye in your finite absence
Now halving all my habits
You know the boy needs a balance

So I go
So we go
You know
Weathered the storm or so the story's told

Taping together
All the poems
That you swore
You never wrote

Held along the chalk is wove in
Picasso patterns in motion, no denying
Turned every stone till the stones blue
Fucking say it again

The jury misheard you

Tangled in the text, no faults in my basis
Silent nights along cellular exchanges

Tell me what
You want me to do
I hear the bell that tolls for whom

I swim past that wave you're riding
Further than that husk you hide in

It’s not the question that strikes me deep
It’s how far you'll drown to prove it's length


Face it, I need product to get paid in
Waiver weaklings, oh you won't make the weigh in
Pave a way in, cycling through inhalants
This is Hades, oh you thought this was a haven?

From Judecca, dealing sins to spend
Seeding with my peers till our cents are spent
Beating at the gates 'til I make a dent
Look me in my eyes and tell me I ain't with the shit

I've spent so much time
Planning out our lives
This was supposed to be a family

But now that you're gone
I can't shake the feeling
That this was somehow my fault

Coming to terms with my existence, morality and this distance
Oh I'm bridging gaps between the answers and remedies that are so tempting
Like with this nic, it numbs slow despite shorts wicks
And digital visuals flicker in and out while I cast this

Boundless in your venture, brother I swear that I miss ya
Kill for that boy, dare you to drop by and doubt scripture
Your hearts good, believe that
Real love, you need that
Don’t settle for anything less
You’re worth more
And now I see that

This was supposed to be a family
Track Name: From Whence They Came
Where do we go from here
When everything we've known
And everyone we've loved disappear

This is where we both drift apart for good this time
For good this time

No hesitation now, all repitition now
Hands are out to hold, Lord take 'em point the finger now
Waltz through dreary dusks, fog up in the drive way
Spiel on these tracks, the only thing I won't hide away

I need to know I'm loved
Keep me up to date

It's a shame I'm accustomed to this days
Speaking to myself for so long
I don't know what to say to you (To you, my love)
This is where bridges burn and we hum a distracting dirge

So long
God, it's been so long
Dragging knuckles pave a path none trudge along
All the gears we gaurd go unwound
For between smoke and mirrors is where we'll be found

And I just want to show you
I write these prose to draw out tunes
They mold kingdoms with their own hands
But for my utopia I need more than two

No time keeper, keeping time by minding my own
Might dial back a bit, call up whose been ringing my phone
Not bothered by the inflections in your voice
Know by now the chosen never have a choice

It's a shame I'm accustomed to these days
Where sleep is a currency
And I spend it away (Away from here)
My knees hit the dirt once my guilts crystal clear

Threaded thin destiny wreathed around my head
Thrive in the company of those which I've bled for
My ending's noir
Lungs so enriched, throat feeling soar

These are those moments at 4am
These are the quotes that tell us to start again
These are the pieces the maker provides
And these are the feelings that keep us alive

So trust me
Keep faults in check
And know that
I'll be the breath that refracts

So shine bright when you speak
These shadows of self doubt are the last thing you'll see

I'm far from the point that you and I had
I'm not myself, I see that instead

And these answers won't bring me the favors I wanted
I'm hurt and I'm anxious, aching and haunted
Littered with lists of close calls
Through silent hills and empty house halls
Track Name: Penny & Dime
LET'S GO!

What is the measure of a man
When he does, everything he can
To stand for those who can't
To stand for those who...CAN'T

FUCK

Blind reaching to rectify meanings
Can’t mend a bent mask covering the grieving
Gutters feed the greedy though no woes thrive
Thrice the strikes lead to a door left pried
That's presumably ajar to cipher out fuel
Have at the scraps if you have to
I'm one and another, you’re hardly half full

And so it goes
The woes of the shepherd weigh heavy on the goat
Take all I've written scribbled in the notes
All my flowers bloom leading to the unknown

So I won’t be swept up and handled like you fed us
Function in percussion's, my patterns are so beyond thus
Too lit for walkways, you pass by and fall in
Watch how your knee bends soon as the fall ends

And they say when good men do nothing
All we love just fades away
Yet the antagonists we’re becoming
All our foes save face

Circle of life an avant garde noose
Stay en garde when traversing truths cause
You swear, dancing with the devil’s never fair

Never fair

Eyes equipped with baggage that few could ever manage
I see the plants of doubt and how they unroot the planet
Piece de resistance, repairing the palate
Here's to the dearly depart, no attachments

If I ever go off course, bet your life I planned it
And if I ever rule in hell, bet your soul I'll damn it (2x)

Cause all my tiny moving pieces barely glued together
I speak to God and yet we seem to barely know each other

Now I'm the measure of a man
Who does everything for those who...CAN'T
Track Name: Backhand (Now or Never)
I'm the one who's gonna prove it
Cause the proof is I’m ruthless and this day you’ll rue it

I'm the one whos gonna prove it
Cause the hue is so fluent, lost boys are my students

Beggers can't be choosers but you're choosing the wrong choice
Radical rampage, rubble with this voice
Many vices gripped on, the one your lips mention
Pencil pen’s a destiny, your eyes are the mission

I’m listening to the clearest calls for help
Business with the foxes, trophies on the shelf
Life’s what you make it so I make another plate
More tracks to tred on and I’m ready for another race

I'm the one whos gonna prove it
Cause the proof is, I’m ruthless, and this day you’ll rue it

I'm the one whos gonna prove it
And the hue is so fluent, lost boys are my students

Persuing plenty goals, golden grails and all
All in all to leave those unblievers in awe
Break walls and tid bits of brain bits where kings sit
Blessings on blessings, watch all your sneezes

Apease the piece who bring on the peace and
Up root the ruses for which need no reason
Restless but I best this, serve up a session
Soon you’ll take notes and you'll study this lesson

I'm the one whos gonna prove it
Cause the proof is, I’m ruthless, and this day you’ll rue it

I'm the one whos gonna prove it
And the hue is so fluent, lost boys are my students

These lost boys are my students
Where ever they go we will go through it together
It's like

I’m looking for the few fortold in fortunes
Right now is not devoid of wishing motions
I’m aware I tell truths during dares
These dents in my armor aren't written in any fairy tales

Very well, wheres the lair, I’m homesick
Give a little a notice and I’ll show you what hope is
Sentient and sent to be among the decent
Descend on the seasons with sunshine and I’m beaming

I'm the one whos gonna prove it
Cause the proof is, I’m ruthless, and this day you’ll rue it

I'm the one whos gonna prove it
Cuz' the hue is so fluent and I...

(I will not back down)
“Now or never” looked so beautiful to me
With arms out and eyes closed and no guarantee
(I will not back down)
“Now or never” looked so beautiful to me
With arms out and eyes closed and no guarantee
Track Name: Farewell Aigis
Always room for that midnight talking
Enough room in the bottle that you brought in
Paired introvert keys sat locked in
Between you and I is where I’m lost in

It’s dim out in the cold front
Coasting in a deep rut
I can’t feel my face now
But I'm so proud

Wrap a wreath around you
Every time you say my name it sounds brand new

Clarity comes and goes
Mercy for mavens, crosses in roads
Sewn in my meta like designer robes
Slipped on your shoulders like poems I wrote

A protector, the shield
If needed, I’ll kneel
Cause if you love me tonight then you might find out what’s real

It's too essential
Except without you life’s abysmal
A bit more for the few in the crowd
Blood drips, yeah, I think I know now

Curtsy dress pressed all in the neons
Covet glow coming out from all the seasons
Rain puddles that you pout through sing now
And I’m the one basking in the truth now

Seconds, more in our presences
Temporary pleasures are the only measures
Between our every need and notion
Raising glass roses for a toasting

You won't ever lose your way
When laced in my escapades
Don't love myself anyway
But you love me and that's

Okay

Clarity comes and goes
Mercy for mavens, crosses in roads
Sewn in my meta like designer robes
Slipped on your shoulders like poems I wrote

A protector, the shield
If needed, I’ll kneel
Cause if you love me tonight then you might find out what’s real

It's so real how we parse the moment
We press the flesh and beg to be harnessed
Coversating more confrontations
Tied together, we're so armed and dangerous

From here is farther than we thought
Pass all the tears to echelons lost
Long for belonging, I shrug off the cost
Pay what you owe and I owe you for it all

I'm glad you're here
So you know
I was always waiting for you to come home

I'm glad you're here
So you know
I was always waiting for you to come

Home
Track Name: Glass Houses
Between you and me is where
I’ve learned to forgive myself
Beneath all these clothes I wear
Is a thief of forgotten wealth

I know I am the one for whom they dismiss
I know I’ll see the son as if I’m Dismas
Yet I’ll cast all I lust aside
If at long last you lead the tide

And carry us

WHEN
All that's left is everything we said we could be
Take all that I've written mixed in the paints
I found my home in this

And the waves come crashing in, despite the tides
Life isn’t easy when used to the pain
I found my home in this

Go see it how you want it, yet I only picture petals
Falling from the heavens while rounding up our devils

I am the way
I am the wave
Coming down now
All around now

Gasps and echoes
Ring on queue
No funeral
That inferno will do

THE STRUCTURES YOU BUILT
THAT SURROUND YOUR LIFE

DO THEY MAKE YOU FEEL SAFE
WHEN YOU CLOSE YOUR EYES

WHEN IT ALL COMES CRASHING DOWN
WHO WILL SAVE YOU NOW ~

When all that's left is everything we said we could be
I found my home in this
And the waves come crashing in, despite the tides

I FOUND MY HOME IN THIS

All that's left is everything we said we could be
I found my home in this
And the waves come crashing in, despite the tides
I found my home in this
Track Name: Speak To Me
SPEAK TO ME

Dive in and drive on
Coast to coast you live on
To do what's right he guided you
To Alaska to warm is us whom

Turned hearts, far fetched
My reach for you hurts no less
In dire time spent crying to
These lessons on life's final rule

I'm always sleepless
Avoiding the only time when I hurts less
No avoidance, the void rolls in
I'm not the same boy who ran from the violence

With this breath I'll be what you saw
Solitude in nothing, I feel none at all
I am who I am, there's no other way
I am anything else than what you made

Life is not like what we thought it would be
It leaves you broken, and beaten in
All they said was to just move on
It will all be okay, how could this be okay

I hope I made you proud
I'll never forget your last words to me
You called me beautiful
I'll always be your baby boy

Wither away
On a summers day
Other side is greener when you're never out to play

No words to pilfer
No urns to lay
I'm not a poet
Just the words you say

My heart, weighs heavy in my chest...

Let me show you, just how far I'll go
to see this through, till the end
Let me show you, just how much you mean
to me, please speak to me

Please speak to me
