about

Something striking about writing this album was that Hidde finished the song “Exits Exist” the day before his girlfriend at the time told him she was leaving, his brain didn’t expect it, but clearly his heart did. Another element worth noting is the guitar work performed by Hidde’s bandmate Christopher Morin of Capital Unknowns, there are some very powerful lead parts in “Born a Patriot”, “Care” and “No Gods Only God” to name a few. Overall this album like most of Hidde’s work is about childhood memories, lost love, and is closely related to his relationship with Jesus Christ. - The Noise Room

Track Name: Born a Patriot
I don’t know if I can black out
Cause I don’t drink enough to pass out
You’re feeling guilty, you’re feeling sick
You’re feeling slow and I’m feeling quick

I won’t be a flame to your wood
Cause I don’t think about what I should
You’re feeling guilty, you’re feeling sick
You’re feeling slow and I’m feeling quick

My feelings stick

I won’t remember you
If I don’t recite my lines right
I won’t remember what to do
If I don’t recite my lines right

I don’t know if I can black out
Cause I don’t drink enough to pass out
You’re feeling guilty, you’re feeling sick
You’re feeling slow and I’m feeling quick

I won’t be a flame to your wood
Cause I don’t think about what I should
You’re feeling helpless, you’re feeling ancient
Feeling like you were born a patriot
Born a patriot
Track Name: Locket
You said you hold my heart
Inside your locket
I never knew if you could
I just like it

Of all the love I’ve had
There's nothing like it
And everyone has a heart
I just lock it

You said you hold my heart
Inside your locket
I never knew if you could
I just like it

Of all the love I’ve had
There's nothing like it
And everyone has a heart
I just lock it
I just lock it
Track Name: Not Enough Love
Everyone around me feels like they want to be
Somewhere different, somewhere far away
Well I can’t be there, and I can’t be here
I can’t see myself anywhere

All the barbed wire, and slit car tires
Guns and ammo, I swear I’ll break out
Like a prison escapee on my knees
Crawling back to what I used to be

All my worries are golden mirrors
And all the things you’ve said are what I fear
But I won’t hold them up to the light
It’s light years that keep me here to make it through the night
Track Name: Song for a Son
This is a song for a son
Not someone who died and rose again
Because I can’t be everyone
Enough is enough when it’s all done

This is a song for a son
Someone that I love
The root of all evil in everyone, and everything
The root of all evil

This is a song for a son
I never said I was open
This is a song for a son
A son I never had
Track Name: The Bomb
The forts we built brought us together
In Fort Hunter surrounded by water
We weren’t scared of anything
We had each other and a blanket as our ceiling

Looking through all of our basketball cards
We built the bomb when we were young
If it faced the television then all the better
We built the bomb when we were young

If I could go back and build the bomb
With my brother, then I’d love it all over again
If I could go back and build the bomb
But since I can’t I’ll sing this song

If I could go back and build the bomb
With my brother, then I’d love it all over again
If I could go back and build the bomb
But since I can’t I’ll sing this song
Track Name: Westside Christian
Make me move to another land
I won’t cry if I have your hand in mine
I was a coward and you were a friend
I was an evil person
Never wanting to see the end

And now I’m a Westside Christian
A servant for Him
A cape and emblem on my chest
I’ll do my best

I’m a super hero, I will be there for you
You can count on that
Yeah, you can count on that

And you won’t ever be gone
Cause I won’t ever live that long
No, I won’t ever live that long

Make me move to another land
I won’t cry if I have your hand in mine
I was a coward and you were a friend
I was an evil person
Never wanting to see the end

And now I’m a Westside Christian
A servant for Him
A cape and emblem on my chest
I’ll do my best

I’m a super hero I will be there for you
You can count on that
Yeah, you can count on that
Track Name: Care
I don’t really know if I care
And you just want to see if I will
I don’t really know if I care
And you just want to see if I will

Put your head down on me
Close your eyes you don’t need to see
Put your head down on me
Close your eyes you don’t need to see me
Track Name: Do You Wanna See How Far I Can Go
Do you wanna see how far I can go?
Track Name: Exits Exist
You exist for me
I crossed the line you see
The final chapter has been written
But nothing has been taken away

Just enjoy the bad things that are happening
Just as much aa you would enjoy the good things
Not in a way of making you happy, but sad

I don’t think about it like that
I can’t keep it close like everyone else

Come on I wanna see you fly
I don’t wanna see you so sorry
Come on I wanna see you soar
I don’t wanna see you too far from me

It’s too much to handle
This life we create with no real understanding
It’s too much to handle
This life we create with no real understanding

Well exits exist
You just find an entrance
Well exits exist
Understanding too

It’s too much to handle
This life we create with no real understanding
It’s too much to handle
This life we create with no real understanding

Well exits exist
You just find an entrance
Well exits exist
Track Name: No Gods Only God
I know that I can never make this last
All I want is all I’ve lost in my past
The curse you placed upon me is active

All you want is all you've ever wanted to give
The city currents drift then I collapse
Marigolds bloom and fill up this empty room

I’m not a matrix and I can’t shape shift
I won't behave or relax like this

Your face on the glass is all that I miss
Your head on my chest, for everything, I’d give

Now there’s only one thing to do
There is only one God and I’ll prove it to you

I’ll prove it to you
I’ll prove it to you
I’ll prove it to you
