BandRock

Four young guy’s who all possess unique and creative talents. We're all focused on reaching the world through our melodies, and words that are meant to influence. Our music is meant to relate to everyone.

Biography

We are like a family. From its four members, the rest of the StilrizE team, and all the amazing family and friends who are supporting us in turning this dream into a reality. Our first album is titled "The Dream...", which was released in late 2006. We're currently working on releasing another album expected to be due out in late autumn of 2008.

We all have different lives, but share the same passion for music. We are able to portray life events and lessons through our music. We all bring something unique to the table, from Sean’s guitar riffs, Dan’s bass lines and acoustic keys, Mike’s beats, and all the way to Andrews’s lyrics and vocals, along with his earlier percussion background and ideas with guitar melodies. When all of these talents are brought together, you have StilrizE.

We have been influenced by all kinds of music since we were kids. From listening to our parent’s music like The Eagles, Elton John, CSN&Y, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and more. We were also introduced to new music from our older siblings and friends who tuned us into music like Metallica, Alice in Chains, Guns & Roses and more. We also take great influence from today's music like Shinedown, 3 Doors Down, Nickelback, Staind, and many more...

StilrizE loves to write, practice, and work in the studio, and most of all, to have that feeling of saluting the crowd with our creations. To be able to take those results and perform them live for everyone willing to listen, is a big part of our dream... As unique as we all may be, we have one dream in mind, to be able to touch, change and inspire different people throughout the world with our music.

Lyrics

The Dream

Written By: StilRize

THE DREAM…-I have dreamt about a time where people can relate to me|they can hold me up with an edge to take it all the way|they could see me then, they could see me trying|I can reach out for their hands, and we could feel the same|and we could think about it…|in a world where it’s hard to be seen, I imagine the state of being|someone who could change a person, someone who is not forgotten|and In their eyes I could see a future, another dream made true by others|I wonder if this is just a dream?|or can we think about it?|I see the sea of all people all different and unique to me|they flow along to melodies, and words that hypnotize|you can see their hands, you can see their smiling|I start to think, could this be real?|or is it a mistake?|or can we think about it?

Don't Ever Look Back

Written By: StilRize

DON’T EVER LOOK BACK-woke up early in the morning the light was all around|I could hear the angels calling, so I moved toward the sound|made me realize in this life, you should walk away from pain|and make the best out of your time|just when you feel life’s got you down to the point of know escape, just keep your head up all the way| try and find the right way out, and take it day by day| don’t ever look back there again|don’t ever look back|
dreaming of a better learning, I search above the clouds|I could see the angels rising, I could feel them all around|made me realize in this life, you should walk away from pain|and make the best out of your time|in this time of decadence, I will find a way to the other side of all this mess|when I’m torn from deep inside, I will love, I will cherish all the things that come in life

These Chains

Written By: StilRize

THESE CHAINS- I’m reaching out for that someone|to guide me through this compulsion|found some more chaos today|can you help me out in some damn way?|I wish I knew what I could be|can you foresee my destiny?|please tell me….|can you fly down from the sky, and force out all the weakness that’s killing me, that’s making me fall down?|can you ever tell me why?|why I can’t let all my feelings free, free from all these chains?|these chains…|I watched the days go by too fast|and I did nothing to make them last|so I guess this is the end|I pray for it to be pretend, and re-begin…|where has time gone?|I have only just begun| been here too long|I just need to see the sun|where has time gone?|I just need to breathe again|where has time gone?|these chains that I made on my own…

Recognize It

Written By: Stilrize

so you think you can tell me
that there is no apathy?
well i've got some advice for you my friend
you better recalculate, today
you're blaming me
for your own design
just say your goodbyes
cuz i'm not taking no more,
and I hope you recognize it
bitch
sick and tired of the same old things
just when will i feel at home?
these six words make everything come clear...
I-think-i'm-better-off-alone
alone
cuz ive seen this face before
this is the last time
take your shit out of here
just take it
yeah take it
no more, im gone

Day One

Written By: Stilrize

Stuck in a world that Im forced to see, is this the world that we're made to live in?
Oh man, I know that theres gotta be some answers lying around.
I could be close to insanity because im thinking the way im thinking.
Oh god, I know theres gotta be a time bomb ticking now.

As I wonder... I question everything thats real, but how can you define whats real anyway?

Do you ever think you might be living in some washed up fantasy?
Still the time moves forward.
I'm taking it back, taking it back to day one

Some people think that Im crazy.
They think that I got no way of living, but really all that Im tryin to see is what the hell is going around. I know theres something inside of me, feels like a fucked-up, weird possession. Oh god, I know that theres got to be a time bomb ticking now.

As I wonder... I question everything thats real, but how can you define whats real anyway?

Do you ever think you might be livin in some washed up fantasy? Still the time moves forward.
Im taking it back, taking it back to day one. In a world thats full of people, places, things you always see. I still think the same things over, got to take it on back to day one.

Day one, day one, day one, day one, day one, so i can go back just so I can figure out everything. Day one, day one, Im going back to day one. Day one, here i come

Do you ever think you might be living in some fucked up fantasy? Still the time moves forward. Im taking it back, taking it back to day one. In a world thats full of people, places things you always see. I still think the same things over . Got to take it on back, take it on back to day one.

Gotta take it, just take it on back yea. Gotta take it back on to day one.

Quicksand

Written By: Andrew D. of StilrizE

V1
footsteps layed out in the sand, leading to where i just don't know
shadows of another life follow me, and now i run, i run, and i lose control
daddy starts yellin' again
tells me "you're wastin' all your years! why don't you be like me? i got a job, i'm not a slob, but i gotta son who's a burnout."
the door slams shut
it's always the same routine
it's not ever enough
i wipe my tears, and i'm out the door
CHORUS
i will never be what he tells me
sorry i wanna follow my own dream
that's not enough for him, it's never enough
is it ever enough?
V2
footsteps that once were layed out in front of me, covered by quicksand
shadows of another life that followed me have faded out, and fled into the night
this is what he's made of me
CHORUS
but i will never be what he tells me
sorry i wanna follow my own dream
that's not enough for him, it's never enough
i can't function i'm torn, and out of place
dejected as the family disgrace
what am i meant to be besides the enemy?
BRIDGE
open up your mind, and stimulate
open up your mind, yeah
i think i'm fallin' in, i think i'm fallin' in, i think i'm fallin' in, yeah
i think i'm fallin' in, i think i'm fallin' in, i think i'm fallin' in again...fallin' in
CHORUS
but i will never be what he tells me
sorry i wanna follow my own dream, but i guess i'll be the enemy
ENDING
i think i'm fallin' in, i think i'm fallin' in, i think i'm fallin' in, yeah
you should be fallin' in, you should be fallin' in, you should be fallin' in, you should be fallin' in the quicksand

Anxiety

Written By: Andrew D. of StilrizE

Lying here awake In bed, all these thought inside my head—missing how it used to be, everything was clear to me—now my faith is swept aside, distancing a better life—can’t somebody tell me why, this gets worse as time goes by?—and I wanna be somebody else for awhile to maybe get a little relief—there’s no escape from this relentless hell—feels like it’s gotta grip on me—I can feel it coming soon, scared to even leave this room—pressure of my blood just rised—got no help, I’m hypnotized, and now I’m panicking inside—heart feels like it’s paralyzed—cried so much my eyes are dry—sick of all the fear, I’m screaming I wanna be somebody else for awhile, to maybe get a little relief—there’s no escape from this relentless hell—feels like it’s gotta grip on me—cuz no one knows just what it’s like to live through such anxiety—gotta take a drug for all the pain just to get away from reality—I’m so sick of it all—I just don’t wanna die without knowing why something’s gotta grip on me, oh why, something’s gotta grip on me, yeah—an uneasy mind—why can’t I just live a normal life with no fear, no burdens that just bottle up inside?—it’s like nothing ever seems to just give in—I’m here, still with the pain, and still I’m asking why?-- cuz no one knows just what it’s like to live through such anxiety—gotta take a drug for all the pain just to get away from reality—I’m so sick of it all—I just don’t wanna die without knowing why something’s gotta grip on me, oh why, something’s gotta grip on me—and I wanted to be somebody else

Fake-Ass Girlfriend

Written By: Andrew D. of StilrizE

I have given everything to be with you—now I’ve got nothing left, but my own truth—you said you’d be there for me, and you would never forget the way I looked in your eyes—you think I’m too blind to see some other man’s in your head?—I’m not a fool this time—she said she’s gonna write me a letter, and promises that we will meet again, I wonder is this where it comes to an end?—or is this just another fake-ass girlfriend?—If I have learned one thing, hands down—it’s that if I try to commit, you get scared, and turn around-- you said you’d be there for me, and you would never forget the way I looked in your eyes—you think I’m too blind to see some other man’s in your head?—I’m not a fool this time—she said she’s gonna write me a letter, and promises that we will meet again, I wonder is this where it comes to an end?—or is this just another fake-ass girlfriend?—she said she’s gonna write me a letter, and wonders if we could just be good friends—I’m walking out the back door pissed again—go ahead and play your games—and throw me away—go on babe, scratch everything we once believed in—I think you’re insane treating me this way--she said she’s gonna write me a letter, and promises that we will meet again, I wonder is this where it comes to an end?—or is this just another fake-ass girlfriend?—she said she’s gonna write me a letter, and wonders if we could just be good friends—I’m walking out the back door pissed again—go ahead and play your games—you won’t write me a letter—because you’re just another fake-ass girlfriend

Broken Tragedy

Written By: Andrew D. of StilrizE

Sometimes I find it hard to read in between the lines—but, I think it’s hard enough to just keep you satisfied—there are some days where I sit, and wonder why I try so hard for you when I only live one life?—so, would you save my soul?—or will you turn away?—you can’t take everything for granted, just be happy with what you’ve got today—will you cry for me when I’m down, and out?—will you cry as I fly above clouds?—will you cry for me when I am not around?—it’s a broken tragedy—another broken tragedy—welcome to the crossroads where you’ve got to choose a way—the clock is ticking, no time for mistakes—cuz who really knows what happens next in life?—you never know, I could be gone without a kiss goodbye--so, would you save my soul?—or will you turn away?—you can’t take everything for granted, just be happy with what you’ve got today—will you cry for me when I’m down, and out?—will you cry as I fly above clouds?—will you cry for me when I am not around?—it’s a broken tragedy—now you see me, and now you don’t—you can’t take it away, you’ll lose control—will you cry for me when I’m down, and out?—will you cry as I fly above clouds?—will you cry for me when I am not around?—it’s a broken tragedy—will you cry?—will you cry?—will you cry for me?—will you cry?—will you cry?—it’s a broken tragedy

Underneath

Written By: Andrew D. of StilrizE

Sacrifices that I’ve made still haunt me to this very day—will I ever be ok?—will I ever be ok?—I think about how it would be if I made some time for scrutiny in situations I’ve buried—when all I needed was a friend to be there with me til’ the end, instead life began to descend—when demons came from underneath, I had faltered to relieve all the things they’d done to me—now I look back with regret—how could I have been so sad to not throw the demons back underneath?—where was I wrong?—if only I could make a change—took me too long—can’t you see why I’m ashamed?—it has begun, it has bled all through my mind—and my mind, and my mind can’t take no more—I am underneath- when demons came from underneath, I had faltered to relieve all the things they’d done to me—now I look back with regret—how could I have been so sad to not throw the demons back underneath?

Marching On (Acoustic for U.S. Troops)

Written By: Andrew D. of StilrizE

Today is gone, and I can see into the light—tomorrow goes on, but it’s ok I’ll be alright—I’m marching on, and I can hear the battle cries—I’ve fought for long to make sure you’d dream tonight—well I have traveled across blue seas taking part in our world history—every single face I’ve seen will be a locked, and well kept memory—I see the sun, and I never knew it was this bright—I’m on the run, and I wish you were holding me tight--I’m marching on, and I can hear the battle cries—I’ve fought for long to make sure you’d dream tonight—well I have traveled across blue seas taking part in our world history—every single face I’ve seen will be a locked, and well kept memory—for the red, white, and blue, I’ll bleed for you—for the red, white, and blue—well I have traveled across blue seas taking part in our world history—every single face I’ve seen will be a locked, and well kept memory—today is gone—today is gone—tomrrow goes on—I’m marching on
