Biography

Sandon kicked off his music career in late 2007 in Moose Jaw Saskatchewan and has been going strong ever since. Driven by his own music and lyrical innovations, he began to move forward with his dreams of creating a solo career. He started working with Jared Robinson (Nebulus Entertainment) in late 2008 and finished his debut release titled “Freedom’s Last Lost Mile” (released January, 2009). Singles titled 'Red Light District' and 'Take Another Drop' give insight to a life driven by positive motivators in an imperfect world.

Sandon later received 2 Western Canadian Music Award nominations in September of that year (Outstanding Christian Recording/Best Album Design). His second album titled “Sonic Synthesis” will feature catchy lyrics driven by synth hook lines and edgy guitars. Sonic Synthesis is set to be released in the spring of 2010 and will be followed up with an independent tour. (read less)

Lyrics

Red Light District

Written By: Sandon Weber

Red Light District

He’s going out to the red light district
He wants to get with whomever he can get with
She’s going to stay home all night long
‘Cause she’d rather be on her own

My lips are moving faster than the words coming out of my mouth
Tonight I try to find myself and relive all my future doubt
I dream to live and live to dream but dreaming isn’t everything
That I always wanted, what was it that I always wanted?

Silently I think of you and wondering what I could do
As dirty water fills the sink and slowly rises to the brink
Of disaster headed for staining brown my hardwood floor
But I don’t mind I just stare in wonder

I think I think I have forgotten, how to how to explain that I love you
I think I think I have forgotten, how to how to explain that I love you

He’s going out to the red light district
He wants to get with whomever he can get with
She’s going to stay home all night long
‘Cause she’d rather be on her own

So now he walks down center street and knows now that he’ll never meet
The righteous version of himself an endless ocean filled with doubt. That often cause hurricanes and he himself alone is blamed, a shodow in the overcast, this storm will never pass. So silently I think of him and wonder if he’ll ever win the battle for the bridges burned after all the tides have turned and his conquest turns to dust and he believes that now he must find out what he wanted, what was it that he always wanted?

I think I think I have forgotten, how to how to explain that I love you
I think I think I have forgotten, how to how to explain that I love you

He’s going out to the red light district

Listen To The Silence

Written By: Sandon Weber

Listen to the Silence

Fall…

Listen to the silence hear the angel wings, if you listen to the silence you can hear the angels sing

Like a child without a father I am the soil without water in the silence I find peace and it puts my mind at ease

Listen to the silence hear the angel wings, if you listen to the silence you can hear the angels sing

As I search for your direction I am so lost in this perfection and the silence brings me peace and it puts my mind at ease

Finding love in silence all distraction falls apart finding all this love in my heart

Listen to the silence hear the angel wings, if you listen to the silence you can hear the angels sing

Take Another Drop

Written By: Sandon Weber

Take another drop

Come, come along breath the air that fills my lungs take my mind take my body take my heart for all you do is just action consequential and the lies in your life come alive

Take another drop sip it up sip it up you’re tired of bleeding tired of fighting, wanting fighting in the water.

Find, find a way to pierce this heart within my days make it cold make it heart felt make it warm and you believe in me as I fall to the ground we become silhouettes among the stars

The shutter opens up lets in some light a picture of us frozen in time catching emotions both black and white one single moment flawless design

Take another drop sip it up sip it up you’re tired of bleeding tired of fighting, wanting fighting in the water.

Come, come along breath the air that fills my lungs take my mind take my body take my heart,

Baptized

Written By: Sandon Weber

Baptized

My heart is softly beating through the slow decay of time
Longing for the comfort of the ones I left behind
I dove into the water just to see what I could find
Hoping that my sinful passion falls out of my mind
Angels helping people helping me don’t seem to fly
As sound waves in an open space we all must live to die.

Oh Oh Oh… we believe we believe that this is the end of you and me.
Oh Oh Oh… we believe we believe that this is the end of you and me.

Freedom comes at such a price that most will never pay
Wanting all the treason passed but it will always stay
I dove into the water just to see what I could find
Hoping that my sinful passion falls out of my mind

Underwater breathing isn’t such an awful thing this time
Dive into the water see what you can find
Underwater breathing isn’t such an awful thing this time such an awful thing this time

Oh Oh Oh… we believe we believe that this is the end of you and me.
Oh Oh Oh… we believe we believe that this is the end of you and me.

Give up your ghost you’ve hidden in the closet you do not want to miss it this time.

Dying to live, we’re living to die, we’re dying to live

Were only actors were only puppets to the sound were only humans we were lost but now we’re found.

Help Wanted

Written By: Sandon Weber & Phill Simms

[Help Wanted]

You ask me once to believe you plead it twice and I try to by the third time it’s over and I’m going out of my mind so I leave you behind

I couldn’t stand it anymore all of the lies I tried but girl I can see through your disguise my mind reeling from the thought of your smile my eyes were deceived by your looks I can’t lie the whens the wheres the whats the whys forget this baby girl I’m way to fly of a guy you ‘ aint going to fool me twice come on I’m Philly 5 bye bye baby girl it’s the end of the line

You ask me once to believe you plead it twice and I try to by the third time it’s over and I’m going out of my mind so I leave you behind

You’re still playing head games what a joke are you for real I feel different things than the things I used to feel you know I’d kneel if you changed your ways but no you won’t it’s not a lack of faith but girl you give no hope you see I’m broke by things we said the things we wrote they’re lies so I’m leaving them to burn up in smoke don’t choke up put your head up don’t cry you know I got to go cause I’m leaving you behind

You ask me once to believe you plead it twice and I try to by the third time it’s over and I’m going out of my mind so I leave you behind

A dozen white roses on her mind downtown Toronto where you never see the sky and she’s wondering why wondering why help wanted help wanted

You ask me once to believe you plead it twice and I try to by the third time it’s over and I’m going out of my mind so I leave you behind

Freedom's Last Lost Mile

Written By: Sandon Weber

Freedom’s Last Lost Mile

Take out the in from inside give in to my, peace of mind. Factor the facts that invoke, you shattered the glass that I filled with hope. Hearing your voice through the line, a gaze to the side and down come the sky. Factor the facts that invoke, one drop of red ink in every word that you spoke, that you spoke.

All that you found, all that you found. One page of red ink, one page of red ink, one page of red ink.

Correcting my harsh tone of voice, I hear my name above all the noise. Extending the plains of the game, I’m fighting the ways that we are the same. Drenched in the waters that fell, a thousand more tears I could expel. Choking them back with a smile, I start to run freedom’s last mile.

This Has Beaten Me

Written By: Sandon Weber

This Has Beaten Me

Can you find it in the ways that we converse when we’re alone. Can you see it in the smile that I force when we’re alone. All I ever seem to see now is the false propositioned of me now. All I wanted to be was a truth, a force to set you free.

So tell me, tell me, am I wrong to say that I failed you in every way?

Set me free…

Holding on to desire and the notion that I can beat this on my own. And we discuss the situation that I’m in and I know I’ll never win. This quest has taken all I have, I lay defeated here on the ground. Can you lift me from this place where I stand and take me for what I am, I’m just a man.

So tell me, tell me, am I wrong to say that I failed you in every way? Every way.

Tainted Black

Written By: Sandon Weber & Tamara Weel

Tainted Black

You saw me through the dark times you saw me through the night I couldn’t help but

wonder if I’d ever win the fight.

You saw me through the windows always tainted black, I did not imagine a love could

feel like that.

You are all I’m waiting for, this love I can’t ignore, silently you wait

Now I’m knocking at the door, I’m always asking for more all along I’ve said;

In the shadow of your wings, I find such beautiful wings

And in the shadows of my demise, all you ever found was compromise

You saw me through the dark times you saw me through the night I couldn’t help but

wonder if I’d ever win the fight.

You saw me through the windows always tainted black, I did not imagine a love could

feel like that.

You are all I’m waiting for, this love I can’t ignore, silently you wait

Now I’m knocking at the door, I’m always asking for more all along I’ve said;

In the shadow of your wings, I find such beautiful wings

And in the shadows of my demise, all you ever found was compromise

You saw me through the dark times you saw me through the night I couldn’t help but

wonder…

If I’d ever win the fight.

Falling Under

Written By: Sandon Weber

Falling under

Falling under the wishes you have sought, you’re slipping into the treason in my plot.
Black or white it’s all the same your eyes are dead in me seeing nothing gaining loss fighting who you’ll be

This temptation is always in my reach resisting now I free my heart detach yourself from me serenity has not always been a virtue I have known
But no my eyes have seen the light I’m finally going home

I’ve found I’ve seen this love victoriously. I’ve found I’ve seen this love victoriously
I’ve found I’ve seen this love victoriously. I’ve found I’ve seen this love victoriously

Be in him as I was in you finding the path knowing what to do
Be his guide of honour strength and pride one word from your mouth could save him from doubt.

Yah…

Lost My Edge

Written By: Sandon Weber

Lost My Edge?

Oh…

Should freedom come at the barrel of a gun? Should we fight to see, fight to see this through? We want to live, we want to learn to love to live to dream of life tonight. We lose ourselves on the winding road of life. But the pain is ours, ours alone tonight. And the water will rise, and the water will rise, I cannot believe.

Have I lost my edge, or just fallen off it
Have I lost my touch or just to quickly forgotten
To be unashamed when everyone around me
Everyone around me is taking the blame for themselves

Oh…

Should we believe all that we see? Should we trust our eyes, trust our eyes this time? We want to let the truth be known, to want to know to live free tonight. We lose ourselves ‘cause we fail to fight, we fail to dream of freedom tonight. But the truth will rise, but the truth will rise, I cannot believe.

Have I lost my edge, or just fallen off it
Have I lost my touch or just to quickly forgotten
To be unashamed when everyone around me
Everyone around me is taking the blame for themselves

Oh…

So line your shots with silver, kill the werewolves that we’ve become. One small silver bullet and you can take back what we’ve won. Through our nation’s only thirst that never seems to quench, for glory, honor and power, our self serving defense…

A Heart Robbery

Written By: Sandon Weber

A Heart Robbery

I am the robber, her heart is the bank

The doors are solid shut now but I won’t go away

The guards and their guns but I’ll try just for fun

Because I am the robber and her heart is the bank

Through the basement window, take a look around

Bring down both the guards without a sound

She doesn’t know I’m comin’ to save and set her free

‘Cause I am the robber and you’re breaking out with me

I’m saving her she’s saving me

She’s all, all I want she’s all I need

I’ll take all the blame if anyone sees

Cause I am the robber and you’re breaking out with me

Blood Red Skies

Written By: Sandon Weber

Blood Red Skies

We believe in what we want to, want to, we believe in what we want to, yeah.
You believe in me, don’t you, don’t you? You believe in me tonight. You’re making it hard for me to see you. You’re making it hard for me to want what you want
You’re making it hard for me to believe in you, you’re making it hard for me to see you

The will you have, the strength you hold compares with none defiance told. Thought provoking measures taken brings you down this hollow road. No one knew or could perceive the pain throughout your misery would leave you stranded all alone, take your heart and you’ve known.

You’ve seen the blood; you’ve heard the cry, reflecting now but to no comply. Forsake the future and look to your past for truth and justice will never last.

Earth is breaking beneath your feet, the burning dreams of sure defeat. Condition now and free your soul, to free yourself time takes its toll. The foggy distance overthrows, rising waters but no one knows. We’re standing here. Standing still. Waiting for our lungs to fill.

You’ve seen the blood; you’ve heard the cry, reflecting now but to no comply. Forsake the future, look to your past for truth and justice will never last.

Sleeping through the onslaught coming, there’s blood on the walls
Sleeping though the sun is dawning, there’s blood on the walls

Tonight, I finally see, this love through tragedy.
As dawn closes in and death fades away.

Why not believe in what you cannot see when the world itself is a mystery
This evolution is getting old, there’s more to life but you’re never told
So ask the questions, do you dare? Take the step and don’t be scared
Keep the faith that never dies or fades away with the blood red skies tonight…
