Biography

With their unique combination of hard-driving, melodic riffs and lyrics, as well as 3-part harmonies, WYGANT began its journey in 2002 focusing on original music that would bring a positive and energetic sound to its listeners. With very few people knowing, and at a very young age, Andy and Jon spent 4-years working on their musicianship, vocals, musical arrangements and lyrics to bring them to the release of their first self-produced single "Satisfied in You" in November of 2006. WYGANT's second original, 'My Release', was released in January of 2007. The release of their debut CD 'A World Called Home' is expected to be completed by the spring of 2008. During this journey Jon and Andy decided to go from traditional schooling to completing their high-school education through the Internet at an accredited online high school, which is also how they plan to complete their college education. This environment provides them with the flexibility to develop their original music & lyrics for WYGANT, as well as the ability to be on the road performing live shows. In early 2007, they were joined by bassist Chris Seelbaugh.

Lyrics

Who I Am

Written By: WYGANT

Now I’ve not been
My same old way
Influence around
Listen to what I say

I’ll work the day
And I’ll work the night
The journey through life
Seems like an uphill fight

I for one gotta’ live my life
Tryin’ my hardest doin’ what I can
To stand strong and not change my ways
And be the person that I am

I am who I am
I’m gonna take a stand
One of a kind
Like every other man

I wanna be
Just like me
That’s who I am

The night is strong
I feel it over me
It’s coverin’ the light
So I can’t see

Gotta’ stand up straight
I gotta’ stand up tall
Gotta’ put up a fight
And get my back off the wall

I for one gotta’ live my life
Livin hard but livin’ strong
Standin’ up to not change my ways
Gonna’ be myself, that’s who I am

I am who I am
I’m gonna take a stand
One of a kind
Like every other man

I wanna be
Just like me
That’s what I am
In reality

I am who I am
No matter where they stand
I’m just myself
With what’s at hand

I’m supposed to be
Just like me
To be myself
That’s who I am

…who I am…

Oh times get hard
Oh times get rough
Tryin’ to be like them
But it’s not enough

I gotta’ stand up
And be myself
Gotta’ live like me
And nobody else

I see the signs
I won’t ask why

I for one
I alone
Gotta’ live
A life of my own

If I don’t
If I won’t
A pointless life
With nothing shown

I am who I am
I’m gonna take a stand
One of a kind
Like every other man

I wanna be
Just like me
That’s what I am
Can’t ya see

I am who I am
No matter where they stand
No matter who’s involved
No matter what’s at hand

We’re one of each
Like you and me
I’m gonna take a stand
Cause That who I am

A World Called Home

Written By: WYGANT

The day is starting
And all seems well
Should be livin’ my life
Everyday so well

But I don’t know
If I’ll die or live
Cold faces around
With nothing to give

I’m not just talkin’
Overseas
There’s a war here too
A local disease

Through words and actions
To everyone
Our world’s at war
But no one has won
But I know
It’s just begun
No it ain’t done
I’m not the only one

CHORUS
A World of Peace
A World of Time
It’s our dream
Don’t keep it inside

A World of Love
A World of Kind
Unified
Leavin’ none behind

I won’t fight
But I won’t flee
I’ll stand my ground
But have no enemies

We’re all friends
Good times again
Someday we’ll live
In a World called Home

I’m in the comfort
Of my own home
But all the people here
Don’t get along

Everywhere I look
Everywhere I am
I see the world in pieces
Gotta take a stand

Look on the streets
At the poverty
We look at them
And give them nothing they need

Gotta’ pick up the slack
Pick up those behind
It’s their world too
It’s life…
Justified….
To live and love and find…

CHORUS
A World of Peace
A World of Time
It’s our dream
Don’t keep it inside

A World of Love
A World of Kind
Unified
Leavin’ none behind

I won’t fight
But I won’t flee
I’ll stand my ground
But have no enemies

We’re all friends
Good times again
Someday we’ll live
In a World called Home

And I know
That I’m to blame
We’ve all taken part
No glory in shame

But all as one
We can change
Our world needs love
No other way

And oh it’s
Gonna’ take time
But the way of the past
Will repeat our crime

Got our whole
Future ahead
Imagine our world
Unified
With those left behind
We can’t go back
Cause war leaves men to die

Got our whole future
To live with those
To love with those
Who can’t fight in their own stead

...

CHORUS
A World of Peace
A World of Time
It’s our dream
Don’t keep it inside

A World of Love
A World of Kind
Unified
Leavin’ none behind

I won’t fight
But I won’t flee
I’ll stand my ground
But have no enemies

We’re all friends
Good times again
Someday we’ll live…

In a World of Peace
A World of Time
A World of Love
Unified

In our hearts
We won’t divide
That day will come
And we’ll see
Love and Peace and Time
In a World Called Home

Stop the Rain

Written By: WYGANT

The sun’s out today
Oh it’s blistering hot
The sweat down my face
No time to stop

The world’s movin’ in
On top of me
It’s crushing me down
Why can’t I flee

No time to fret
There’s no time to rest
There’s too much pressure
It’s the world’s test

Too much on my mind
I’m runnin’ out of time
It’s gotten too steep
A mountain I can’t climb

I can’t find
My way through life

So spread your wings
Fly me away
From the pain life brings
Come and Stop the Rain

I’m told there’s no way
Life can be bought
You’ve got to live it through
Each and every thought

No easy way out
It’s all part of the game
Binded together
We’re all the same

Hold on to that
With peace and know
Someone’s always there
It’s all part of the show

No reason to fear
There’s no reason to fret
A trust in life
On that you can bet

I will find
My way through life

So spread your wings
Fly me away
From the pain life brings
Come and Stop the Rain

So spread your wings
Fly me away
From the pain life brings
Come and Stop the Rain
Come and stop the pain
From all I’ve seen come
Spread your wings now
Come and Stop the Rain

Let Go

Written By: WYGANT

Well I grew up
Too fast it seems
I should’ve held on
To the smaller things

Now small is large
I will confess
I got caught up
In temporariness

And where have all my dreams gone
A young boy once, that’s been so long
And where has my life been
That time has gone and I can’t do it again

Sometimes you’ve got to let it go
It’s not enough to end the show
When you’re down don’t live in the past
Hold on to the dreams ya have

Sometimes you’ve got to let it be
In your past and in your memories
When you’re down, Let Go.

When I think
About my past
I remember good times
But it’s gone so fast

Gotta’ look out for later
Gotta’ think ahead
Past pain and regrets
Those thoughts I will shed

I find it hard to move on
I know I’ve got to be strong
I want to live my life again
I’ll do it better if I can

Sometimes you’ve got to let it go
It’s not enough to end the show
When you’re down let ambition last
Cause the clock is ticking fast

Sometimes you’ve got to let it be
In your past and in your memories
When you’re down, Let Go.

Now time has past
I’m livin’ life again
All because
Of the desire within

Good times remembered
Got no regrets
The love of life
I’ll hold onto and won’t forget

Now you’ve got to let it go
It’s not enough to end the show
When you’re down don’t live in the past
Hold on to the dreams ya have

In life we’ve got to set it free
Don’t hold us back…let us see
Oh we’ve got to live out our lives
To the max, no compromise

Sometimes we’ve got to let it be
In our past and in our memories
Don’t hold on…Let Go

It’s not enough to end the show

When you’re down, Let Go
