They rehearsed songs and played shows in the local area for the next couple of months until 2 of the members decided they wanted to split from the band. Matt took some time off to write and get his head straight becuase of a failed relationship and Jon struggled to survive after being kicked out of his house. The two didn't talk for about a month, and then one summer Matt's sister spotted him walking up bloomfield ave in, Verona N.J. at 1:00 am. Soon after they were in the studio recording Acoma's Long awaited debut album "Dreaming Of Ways To Escape" The current lineup consists of Matt, Jon, Ryan Baredes, Max Rauch, and Joe Tone.

Lyrics

Everchanged

Written By: Matt Rauch

Hold on, to what you think you are

You're just a shooting star

You came and fell to me a distance everchanged

Beneath, your insecurities

A picture-faded screen

You came I fell to leave a distance everchanged

Oh… You know I'm so worn out

Your shouldered in my dream

You know I'm so worn out

Oh…. The stars they shine so brighter they're falling from the sky

Belong in all your memory

You're just a worn out sheet

Rusted and withered from a distance everchanged

Incensed with what you did to me

Been taking pills to breathe

Thought I'd die and be a distance everchanged

Standing in my silence I am ripped apart and low

The hating of myself I wish would give away to love

I'm walking on a cloud of anger staring at the sun

I'm dreaming of a moment in a lifetime

Roman Sun

Written By: Matt Rauch

Fallen yeah you falter like a feather on its way today, today

On towards the river it will lead you to the sky, your sky, your sky

I belong to all the strong; to all the free it's your eyes

I belong to all the songs that made us see I won't deny

Leave all in your sullen world

Can you free yourself in the roman sun?

Leave all in your sullen world

Can you free your heart in the roman sun?

Turned back, yeah I'm walking through the storm of the bull, behold

Into the beating winds that take us for a ride, a ride

I belong to all the strong; to all the free it's your eyes

I belong to all the songs that made us see I won't deny

Leave all in your sullen world

Can you free yourself in the roman sun?

Leave all in your sullen world

Can you free your heart in the roman sun?
