"Hole in the Ceiling" is a story told primarily through the eyes of a young boy who is imprisoned in a windowless room by his overbearing mother. His only escape is a small hole in the ceiling of this room that allows him to see small remnants of the outside world around him.

The track "The Boy is Born" is the album opener, telling part of the story behind why the boy's mother becomes so overly protective. The entire song is sung by "The Doctor," the harmonies being sung by "The Father."

Musically, the song consists of only acoustic guitar and vocals. No effects were used, save some EQ and compression. This was done to better enhance the emotion behind what The Doctor is saying without making The Doctor himself seem more emotional about the situation.

Ma'am may I please talk to you
I'm sorry to be a bother
I've just received some terrible news
It's about the death of your father

Gunned down on the sidelines
Simply caught in crossfire
No one knows who shot first
His situation dire

Ma'am may I please speak to you
I know it's not the best time
But I think that I can cheer you up
I think things will be just fine

You see you've given birth to
A healthy, baby boy
His life sits before him
Don't be scared now, don't be coy

It's a baby boy
It's a baby boy
It's a baby boy



GOD I FUCKING LOVE YOUR SHIT well its not shit....its ..well you know what i mean its awesome bro XD your pretty damn awesome


Just fucking amazing. I love it. The mood of the song is mixed between tragedy and birth. A beautiful cross of Death and Life in the same song. Having the "Father" doing the harmonies is a wonderful idea. I give this a 10/10. :3

Also... Your mom.
