Biography

The Human Bio
Have you ever felt like the walls were closing in and the earth was rumbling underneath
your feet? Well that's just a day in life. Becoming Human was born on one of those
days, entering into this world not knowing what to expect. After many attempts at
Broadway, chess, and being next the Ultimate Fighting Champion...music was the
gift that brought his life together. Now you think;" ya so what, he can sing, maybe play
a few instruments, or even get a girl's phone number at a bar," but what we have here,
my friends, is a musician that never gives up on making great music that you can
connect to. Music that makes you feel like hey... I've been through that, I loved
somebody like that, or it just puts a song into your head that sits there all day. None of
this would be possible if it wasn't for Mrs. Burns, the grade 4 music teacher that
introduced the recorder. This was a great instrument until a few grade sixers thought
that playing the recorder wasn't cool. So after meeting the dumpster face to face,
along with some bruises, he thought maybe the piano was his instrument of choice.
Learning classical (not knowing anything else), Becoming Human discovered there is
a place called Rock N' Roll. So he begged his Mom for some Rock n' Roll on his 12th
birthday...(at this time it's 1990 and his parents were still living in 1972) so the birthday
boy received two cassette tapes. First one: The Beatles: Abby Road and the second
was Guns n' Roses: Appetite for Destruction. Now, what were they thinking putting
these two albums together, and especially,giving them to someone who's never even
heard of Rock n' Roll; until now. Two of the most influential bands are going to be
injected into this 12 year old boys' head for the next six months. This was probably the
best thing his parents could have done to help his music creativity. High school bands
soon followed along with experimenting with music styles, girls,and partying. This
resulted in the singer-songwriter he is today. His music has been a great impact for
people around him and for himself as well. So please take a look at what he as done
and feel free to tell all your friends, and if you don't have any friends, you can always
buy a CD!

Cheers

Stars are Fallen

Stars Are Fallen

When I get back home I can’t wait to see you it’s been so long up north
I tried to call but your line was busy I guess I’ll try from the road

It’s snowing down outside of Surrey or the stars are fallen tonight
The stars are fallen tonight

I hitched a ride outside of London and made it through to Quebec
The guilt set in as the ride was over I just can’t wait till morning

It’s snowing down outside of Surrey or the stars are fallen tonight
The stars are fallen tonight

Back home in the East it’s calling to me well how far I must go
To find work in the west left home for the best in Fort McMurray

When I get back home I can’t wait to see you it’s been so long up north
I can hear your voice I can smell the ocean I close my eyes to believe I close my eyes
Cause
It’s snowing down outside of Surrey or the stars are fallen tonight
The stars are fallen tonight

Help Me Stand

Written By: M.Harris


Help me Stand

I was never there when you needed me
And I must compare to all of your needs

Help me stand straight I’m all over the place
Don’t mind if I have to steal love from outer space

You moved to Toronto to find a new day
I was still in Halifax I just got in your way,

Help me stand straight I’m all over the place
Don’t mind if I have to steal love from outer space

It’s gone found away to escape
It’s gone not for long as I’m wasting time on Hollis Street
I’m wasting time on Hollis Street

Help me stand…straight

No Dice

Written By: M.Harris

No Dice

Help me explain this fire that's burning up in me, help me ease you pain that my drugs, never turn away let the people know this hatred is killing the human race with victims down below who never seem, to show there face.

Let my love grow for ever and never letting go and spread it all around with my voice that is speaking for your soul. Sleeping on the ground with bomb shells that are fallen and children screaming out so what are we to do, believe in me as I believe in you.

Another day is born and the sun is shinning rays apon your skin. Another heart is torn across the moon that glowing very dim. Cry another tear as you leave the past to search for something new, a revolution is near, it's inside of me and inside of you.

Take another dive into this river that reflects our lives but keep in mind that the waves of truth will drown you in your lies.

Misread Calibration

Well I don’t think about it
And I don’t feel the same way any more
No other way around it when you are lying helpless on the floor

Don’t try to fake this when your soul is torn
My body’s akin when your blood runs cold
It’s time for changing when your moment goes.

Everything is changing and it makes you go further out of control
I’m running through the season with empty days of reasons are let go

Don’t try to fake this when your soul is torn
My body’s akin when your blood runs cold
It’s time for changing when your moment goes

Well I know this letter to you it has many doubts about the fact when you open it
I tried to find you, so could try to love you
Don’t try to fake this when your soul is torn
My body’s akin when your blood runs cold
It’s time for changing when your moment goes

Take This as a Loss

Written By: M.Harris


Take This as a Loss

I heard you were the one, that could not hear,
You stood so tall as you laughed out your tears
You could leave the service would you enjoy yourself?

I had to hide my secret she asks me why are you leaving
Now I can take this as a loss

You get so use to it that you seek other elements
As the world will turn you will be one more less of them

You could leave the service would you enjoy yourself?

I had to hide my secret she asks me why are you leaving
Now I can take this as a loss

Let’s go home

And leave this place with no evidence and rebuild our lives with some confidence
Fill our minds with the innocence before we loose our
Minds
You could leave the service would you enjoy yourself please

I had to hide my secret she asks me why are you leaving
Now I can take this as a loss

In My Life

Falling back on today, it feels like 95…you’re surprised
It’s 3 o’clock in the park hoping that you are alright…
Stay alive

Show me little child
Memories in my life

Stealing drama in dead end streets thinking it’s alright…I’m on your side
Being helpless in the dark taking it in stride…little lies

Show me little child
Memories in my life

Falling back on today, it feels like 95…you’re surprised
Show me little child
Memories in my life
