Reaching the Pedestal is the forth song in the story I'm writing. The man slips into a coma after the events of song 2 (Crash and Burn). He isn't sure if hes dead and is having delusions about the girl he was pining after. Through the next couple songs he is forced to go through every scenario with this girl in his mind, all ending in heartache or worse.... murder... dun dun DUN! Every time things go sour with the girl in his mind he falls into darkness only to awake in his bed ready to try again.

Once again this is all done by me in my basement for fun using Ableton Live. The drums, piano and violin\cello are all midi. I play everything else... kinda haha, I'm not the best guitarist so I usually end up playing in little chunks... sometimes very very small chunks ha. I'm pretty much a composer at this point lol.

Delusional Salvation

1. Chasing a dream
2. Crash and burn
3. Downward Spiral
4. Reaching the Pedestal
5. Desolate Woe
6. That Cold Night
7. Designed to Fail
8. You Deserve Worse
9. End All
10. Disfigured Emotion


Struggling, I try to find some peace of mind
With no clarity in sight
Stuck in this haze for far to long

Let the fog lift
Embracing every flaw
Worth every second
Of anguish that you have caused

I could wait forever
Stuck in this moment
I will not forget
Relived every day
Detached from reality
Is there any way to be set free

Lying to myself
I pollute my mind
With thoughts of what could have been
I should have known I was chasing a dream

And I tried
I tried for way to long
To prove myself
To prove to you that I was worth your time

And now its time
To wake up
The time has come
To let go

Climbing higher to the pedestal I should be on
Will I ever reach it
Climbing higher to the pedestal I should be on
But I'll never reach it

For that spots reserved for you
The one and only
The every thing
The absolute
But why, oh why is all that remains unanswered

I don't get it and I don't think I ever will
I used to think I got this but I never did
Why do the good amongst us fail and the horrible win
I guess I'll just sit back and watch our world end
