Biography

Hello, I am Brandon Collins. I write, record, and perform music. I write lyrics about my day-to-day experiences whether they are good or bad. I hope the music I'm inspired to write is an entertaining and/or therapeutic experience for you.

Ultimately, I would like to help humanity by exclusively touring the earth and being a servant for people in need. I'm doing all I can to get there but understand that God is all about timing.

Lyrics

Popology

Written By: Brandon Collins

Verse1
Down stream we slip n' slide
A race into the wrong side
Were here to take the pleasure ride down

Our eyes are closed to see the end
And our lives lost to pointless sin
I can't believe
Our generation's lost herself to Popology

Verse 2
(let me tell you 'bout some of the girls)
Loose and willing are the women
Dressing up with the intention to
Get the boys aroused

Sly and sheik the boys are actin
Just to get a little action
I can't believe
Our generation's lost herself to Popology

Verse 3
Every mornin it's the same
In the toilet our heads hang
We wake up on the wrong side of someone else's bed

But the parties really get us goin
Drinks and drugs are always flowin
I can't believe
Our generations's lost herself to Popology

Verse 4
Down stream we slip n' slide
A race into the wrong side
Were here to take the pleasure ride down, down, down

Our eyes are closed to see the end
And our lives lost to pointless sin
I can't believe it
We've got ourselves a Doctrine degree in Popology

A Common Misconception

Written By: Brandon Collins and Stephen King

Verse 1
Wearing suit and tie
His words bring a tear to your eye
Come forth and pray

The past has come to end
With God you come to amend
Your iniquities away

Pre-chorus 1
But as soon as you leave your gonna be livin life your way

Chorus
It’s like you’ve lost your way
In the crowded streets today
Temptation lurks in every corner
You shouldn’t be kissing your life away

Now you’ve gone astray
I guess you got your way
Messin round in every corner
Ya should’ve known better than to live it up that day

Verse 2
You thought you made your mind…
Up to carry out your life
Never turning away

But now you’ve realized
Life gets harder all the time
And it’s so easy to stray

Pre-chorus 2
But you got wrong when you left your knees believing it’d be easy to obey

Chorus
It’s like you’ve lost your way
In the crowded streets today
Temptation lurks in every corner
You shouldn’t be kissing your life away

Now you’ve gone astray
I guess you got your way
Messin round in every corner
Ya should’ve known better than to live it up

Searching

Written By: Brandon Collins

Searching
Words and music by Brandon Collins

Verse 1
Searching to be beautified, but I know I’m heading down
And I can’t give up these things I hide
When will I break this ground

Verse 2
Wishing for some open eyes, but I know I’m going blind
To the words you gave, in spite of mine
You’ve never let me down

Pre-Chorus
And I know you’re there, I know you care
And I do
I wanna be different
But what’s out there has left me bear
And broken, and empty

Chorus
I’ve been closing and shutting, my eyes have been turning from you and your hand,
I know I can’t stand but I’ve come back from learning and I’m done with turning my life to no one else

This loving and craving of my misbehaving has hardened my heart, when did I start this cause now I have realized the world has been turning my life to everyone else

Bridge
And I feel I’ve gone to far, from where I left you
But here I’ll start again, I’ll come back and be renewed again

Chorus
I’ve been closing and shutting, my eyes have been turning from you and your hand,
I know I can’t stand but I’ve come back from learning and I’m done with turning my life to no one else

This loving and craving of my misbehaving has hardened my heart, when did I start this cause now I have realized that I have been turning my life… away
