Biography

I earned my B.A. in Psychology, and realized I was interested in taking a different path. I wanted to reach people in a different, perhaps more creative way. My true and unrealized dream has always been to attain a career in the fine arts. I have a strong current of creativity, that often goes either unnoticed or ignored because the job does not take advantage of it or even embrace it. I have entertained training in songwriting and recording in hopes to see if I have the capability to do this. A friend of mine, who is a musician, saw some of my writings and has been pushing me to do something. She, and many others since, believe that I have talent and potential. I have also had professional musicians try to motivate me to consider being a recording artist when they heard my amateur recordings of student recitals. I am quite humble, so it is hard for me to see this the way they do, but I have listened, finally, nonetheless. I have always been a writer at heart. In all other arenas of life, I have a tendency to filter myself, but with writing it is completely different. All of my life, I have always used writing as an outlet for my true self. I had a rough childhood, where I dealt with all forms of abuse, death, and financial struggle, as well as other trials encountered in human existence. I had to learn how to deal with its consequences, for the most part, all on my own. I have devoted a great deal of my efforts to writing as an art as well as a therapeutic avenue. I strive to express myself completely, eloquently, and effectively using the guidelines of the trade. I have a natural, innate sense of rhythm, that allows me the capability to put these words to music with apparent ease. I also play guitar and drums, and use them both for the songwriting process to assure a rhythmic flow. I enjoy the challenge of setting words to music. It gives me a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction unlike any other art. My songs are about people, emotions, thoughts, situations, and how we deal with them and how they effect and interact with our lives. Many times I have sat down to write a song, purely for the purpose of getting out how I feel or sorting things out and deciding what to do. I sit down and write something on a daily basis. My songs touch on many different subjects and are not really limited to one type of audience. They are about the human condition, so the vast majority can relate to them, I believe. They are vivid, yet vague. What I mean by this is that they provoke a great deal of imagery, yet they are vague enough that the person usually applies it to his or her own life, and therefore, sees something different in his or her own mind's eye from the person next to them. So the songs interact with everyone differently, but each interpretation carries the same weight in meaning and effect.

Lyrics

Resistance

Written By: Alisdelisgi

Verse 1
Fire in these eyes,
Rage in this stare,
Gutted on the inside.
Not much else is there.
Confused and distorted,
Contradicting every line.
I wish I had the answers,
Especially this time.
The scars, though old with age,
Burn with violence as before.
Slowly, I tear through them,
Making them bleed once more.
Explode into fragments of myself,
Wounding those within range.
How can I expect myself,
To live with this pain?

Chorus
Emotions are meaningless,
And time is just a measure.
And words fill the air,
With an ironic sense of pleasure.
Alone once again with myself,
This stranger in the distance.
Between who I am,
And who I've become,
Despite this resistance.

Verse 2
Life is for living.
And death is for dying.
Caught in the middle's,
What they label surviving.
The goal is control,
Not letting go.
Intimidate.
Don't mediate.
Infliction soothes the soul.
Turmoil is the beast that lies within.
Free yourself from my reigns,
To see it rise again.
Separation from my soul,
I push you all away.
Stoic to the finish,
Until my dying day.

Chorus

Bridge
This is how things are.
They were never meant to change.
This is how it will always be.
As I continue to reject this pain.

Chorus

My Heart Knows No Boundary

Written By: Alisdelisgi

Verse 1
It's not easy to,
Love you so much.
And while you're gone,
I miss your touch.
But this thing,
Will give you wings,
So you can fly.
What makes us different,
From the rest?
We work together,
To pass this test.
The measures of life,
Won't win this fight.
Baby, don't you see?

Chorus
My heart knows no boundary.
And my mind, it tries,
To make me see,
That you're gone away,
Though you'll be back someday.
And there's no struggle,
there's no doubt,
That I could never,
Live without,
The part of you,
That lives inside of me.
No my heart knows no boundary.

Verse 2
You've been away for so long.
And my brain keeps telling me your gone.
But I feel you near,
'Cause you're always here,
In my heart.
Some think I'm crazy, I know.
But I've got nowhere to go.
And all I want,
Is to be in your arms,
Again, 'cause...

Chorus
