In his own words, he states:

"I believe there is an inherant and furiously unforgiving sense within us demanding artists to either uphold or excell their highest standards

I believe lyrics should be iconic and yet somehow unfamiliar to us. Lyrical space is an opportunity to communicate a message completely with its emotional intent, not filling to get a song out.

I believe that "promotion," as it is called, is merely effort to ensure people are afforded the chance to hear your work. I believe this effort rests upon the shoulders of the performing artist, and not upon the unfathomable resources of established powers. If people or powers are there to help, that is fortune, but this does not take responsibility from the performing artist. The enduring spirit to extensively represent this music can only come from carrying a truly remarkable work of art. Those who have circumvented this law will vanish from the earth."

Lyrics

Beyond The Haze

Written By: John Rybicki

It’s hard to rest now, while I belong back with you
Here it’s been just second-thoughts
I’d set my mind girl, but now it’s not so certain.
You were all I’ve got

Looking back now; Beyond the haze
I’m missing every single day

We didn’t have enemy lines around
We weren’t always out of bounds

When I was with you, the things I did meant something
And we could tell what’s going on
It’s mostly memory; I’m holding onto everything
It’s all that’s gone

Looking back now; Beyond the haze
I’m missing every single day

Call me crazy; I’m dropping everything
For you, I can’t do the sane thing

Looking back now; Beyond the haze
I’m missing every single day

We didn’t have enemy lines around
We weren’t always out of bounds
