Biography

We wrote these tunes with a lot of prayer, sweat and tears. From melody to guitars, from performance to production these songs speak the soul of October's Son.

There is no candy coated life...life is a organism and death is just as much a part of life as living is. How we deal with that death tells the tale. Life is the answer to death. Sometimes strength, sometimes weakness, sometimes adoration, sometimes dissatisfaction but most of the time this big grey area of strength and weakness that is this world we live in.

It's like THAT.

Contradiction

Written By: Joseph Carmen Horta

Contradiction
Written and composed by Joseph Carmen Horta/Joseph Music Copyright 2006

Verse 1
It feels like a train,
running through my head.
Blood surging through my veins,
So much time spent

Pre- Chorus 1
You go against all I believe.
You Contradict all I am
All I’m called to be….

Chorus
It’s not as though I can’t see
who you are
It’s not as though, I can’t tell
where you’ve been
And I know, I know
I should run from you
It’s not as though I can’t hear
Your voice inside my head

Verse 2
It burns like a flame
Wasting away common sense
2am awake again
Invade my soul, I give in to sin…

Pre- Chorus 2
You go against all I believe.
You contradict all I am
All I am called to be….

Chorus
It’s not as though I can’t see
who you are
It’s not as though, I can’t tell
where you’ve been
And I know, I know
I should run from you
It’s not as though I can’t hear
Your voice inside my head

Bridge
I need you
I need
I need you
(Chorus Music)
Father I need you
I need you

Chorus (repeat to end)
It’s not as though I can’t see
who you are
It’s not as though, I can’t tell
where you’ve been
And I know, I know
I should run from you
It’s not as though I can’t hear
Your voice inside my head

End

I'm Alive

Verse 1
Can't remember when I first heard your voice
Can't remember when you broke through the fear
I just can't say when you first touched my heart
Through the darkness and pain of my soul

Pre Chorus:
Have I told you what you mean to my life
Wanna show you what you mean to me

Chorus:
Your living inside of me
You are the reason I'm Alive
I'm living inside of you
This love I can not hide

Verse 2
I remember the words you wrote
I remember when you filled me with life
I just want to share what's been written there
Share the love that you gave to me

Pre Chorus:
Have I told you what you mean to my life
Wanna show you what you mean to me

Chorus:
Your living inside of me
You are the reason I'm Alive
I'm living inside of you
This love I can not hide

First Love

Written By: Joseph Carmen Horta

Verse 1
Love can hurt, when only one endures the time
Surrender your mind
Can’t hold on to long, let it go
Share what you feel inside…
I know it’s hard to be strong when the one you love,
doesn’t care and just isn’t there…

And we need you there…

Chorus
Before it’s too late
Can’t let the sun go down
Come back to your Love, your love
First Love
Don’t give in to hate
Can’t let the sun go down
Come back to your Love, your love
Your First Love

Verse 2
Another day has come another child is gone,
shamefully we pretend not to see or hear…
Tell me deep in your soul,
Can you really know how you feel,
or the price paid for the life you lead…
But the time is near, when all the tears and pain,
through the years, will come to an end…
will we see you there…
And I need you there…

Chorus
Before it’s too late
Can’t let the sun go down
Come back to your Love,
First Love
Don’t give in to hate
Can’t let the sun go down
Come back to your Love
Your First Love

Outie
I want you there
Will we see you there
(repeat to end)

End
