This is the newest single off the new Piercing Lazer album "The Other Side Chronicles" which I just released, worked hard on it for years. It would mean a lot if you got the single or the album, Katja did an amazing job singing this and she filmed a music video for it you can check out above. This song is something I wrote that's personal to me, about my insecurity, fear, anxiety, and depression. Lyrics are below. Enjoy.


Verse 1

Mystery, hidden from me,

don't know myself, thought I'd see,

black hole, essence of my soul,

two sides turning cold..

One hand wants to carry this heart,

one hand wants to tear it apart,

It's hate, or embrace, fear, or faith,

they fall, fingers tearing at the walls.

On the other side,

sheltered by the mind

by the fear inside.

Poking the plastic,

wrapped around the cystic

symptoms of imagination.

seeking calibration!


The child and the father

feeling disconnected,

escaping everything I am.

I'm shutting myself out,

but these walls are coming down,

the apology for the secret,

the secret, the secret, the secret!

Verse 2

It's too much to handle,

the light is burning, I am learning,

you can't contain this candle,

though it's a bit concerning.

The flames burn with a passionate gaze,

running back and forth through every phase,

every struggle, while everything is subtle,

my eyes dried up in puddles.

The problems exist for a reason,

so don't blame me for treason,

I'm disturbed, but not without cause,

don't expect perfection because,

I'm never safe, and when I say,

what's going on, who really listens?

They keep a close eye, see I'm the bad guy,

when I pushed through hell, I did it all myself!


Twisting and turning,

the knife keeps on burning,

forcing myself,

to be someone else,

I'm my own instrument,

of my success and my hell,

the secret is I don't know myself!

ThatJohnnyGuy responds:

Thanks! Aww really? What forum? What did they say? :)

You're an awesome creator, but this time lyrics ruined the entire song

ThatJohnnyGuy responds:

I disagree but ok. Thanks anyhow.

Man that was beautiful. I know the lyrics and song were literally made for each other, but man they were a match made in heaven. The vocals were amazing and the music complimented them so well.

This was a really good listen and I highly recommend people listen to it.

ThatJohnnyGuy responds:

Thanks man, I appreciate it.

That jam dropped harder than me when I was born.

ThatJohnnyGuy responds:

Haha thanks

love this! keep up the good work!

ThatJohnnyGuy responds:
