If Nirvana and The Beatles conceived a child, it would create the modern acoustic-rock sounds of Christoker!

Biography

After playing rhythm/lead guitar for a local hard rock band from 2003-2008, I decided to open new creative doors with a solo acoustic-rock project. Constantly hearing music, lyrics, and melodies in my head for so long, I was ready to put my ideas on paper and my first song represented just that. The first song I wrote for this project is called Radio In My Head. It says everything about my music and how it is my escape but how it is also the thing that brings me back to solid ground. After that, everything just seemed to flow out uncontrollably from there, song after song. Music is a radio in my head I can't turn off and I want to share my radio with everyone.

Lyrics

They're Coming To Take Me Away

Written By: Christoker

Please wait
I've got something to say
And I don't have time for reasons
I'm going away from here today
I know I've made some mistakes

What have I done to everyone
I love you all but I've got to run
And I'm sorry
Please forgive me
It's too late for me to fix this now

So they say
They're coming to take me away
And I don't have time for grieving
No goodbyes to say
And my mistakes
Reality stares me in the face

What have I done to everyone
I love you all but I've got to run
I'm sorry
If you will forgive me
It's too late for me to fix this now

Hail Mary

Written By: Christoker

The world from the upside down
The sky is the sea
The birds they become my fish
They swim over me

But I'm not a slave to Mary
And I'm not so scary
And I don't think it's wrong
To take a hit every now and then

Hey Mary don't you wanna
Smoke my marijuana
Hey Mary don't you wanna get high again

They say you will
You could do this right now
You could quit any time you want
Just not right now

But I'm not a slave to Mary
And I'm not so scary
And I don't think it's wrong
To take a hit every now and then

Hey Mary don't you wanna
Smoke my marijuana
Hey Mary don't you wanna get high

Radio In My Head

Written By: Christoker

Have you ever had to say
Hello to the ones you hate
Have you ever been stuck out in the rain
And music was all you had to take you away
You're just listening to the radio in your brain

One more chance and one last time
To get your fix to get your line
Three more hours left of this high
But I'll be alright yeah I'll be just fine
I'm just listening to the radio in my mind

They say what I love is killing me
I guess thats the price of feeling free
We're gonna die anyway why be afraid
To stand up and sing your favorite song to everyone
I wanna listen to your radio all night long

No more time to waste
I've waited for so long
To hear my favorite song
On the radio in my head

Too much to say but not enough time
There's to much bullshit on my mind
There's just not enough hours in a day
Relax my friends I swear it'll be okay
If you just listen to the radio and fade away
