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

Locket 02:53
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

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

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

The Bomb 06:15
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

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

Care 06:00
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

Do you wanna see How far I can go Do you wanna see How far I can go Do you wanna see Do you wanna see How far I can go Do you wanna see How far I can go

Exits Exist 05:14
You exist for me I crossed the line you see The final chapter has been written But nothing has been taken away 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
10.
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

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
