about

Matt Brady Ohio

I am Matt Brady. Multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer, and graphic artist. The sound of my music has been described as "atmospheric rock with orchestral elements and a dash of heavy." I like to call it evolutionary in the context of a music style which evolves along with my life experiences leading to an ever-expanding sound palette. ... more

Track Name: Awakening
Awakening

Sunrise
Sundown
World spinning round and round
Up rise
Down fall
Slowly beginning to crawl
Sunrise
Sundown
Listen to the building sound
Up rise
Down fall
Take a look into beyond
Track Name: Suicide Queen
Suicide Queen

Staring at a clock with no hands
Time doesn’t exist where she stands
Never to rest, never at peace
Tied up to chains that won’t release
Given a chance to escape the pain
Blew it all with a slice to her veins
Couldn’t comprehend the consequences
Chose to let her world end

Now she sits alone for eternity
Never to be found
Heaven she’ll never see
Her wounds won’t heal
She’ll never be redeemed
Blood upon her throne
She is the suicide queen

Desperate to feel something inside
Loneliness is where she likes to hide
Never fit in, never conformed
Going through this life so tired and worn
She made the choice to give up
Others tried to help but it wasn’t enough
Didn’t believe in salvation
Trapped in her own self-hatred

Now she sits alone for eternity
Never to be found
Heaven she’ll never see
Her wounds won’t heal
She’ll never be redeemed
Blood upon her throne
She is the suicide queen
Track Name: Consumerism
Consumerism

Hypnotized
Desensitized
Living vicariously
Self-absorbed
Paranoid
Chasing the broken dream
Question everything you see
Question everything you read
Don’t throw into their well
Your soul they’re trying to sell

Consume until everyone’s fed
Consume until there nothing left
Fill up the hole inside your head
Exhausting all the resources

Keep ‘em numb
Keep ‘em dumb
Happy in submission
Take a slice of paradise
Ignore the many suffering
Question the so-called real
Use what you truly feel
It’s time to take a stand
Against suppressing hands

Consume until everyone’s fed
Consume until there nothing left
Fill up the hole inside your head
Exhausting all the resources
Track Name: Face It
Face It

Once upon a time
I was so naïve
Thought I could make sense out of this insecurity
Waiting for a moment which may never arrive
Time to make it right

Instead of running away
Instead of running away
You should just face it
Instead of running away
Instead of running away
You should just face it

The past is just the past
That’s where it belongs
No sense in suffering the days long gone
Drowning in a valley filled with loathing and despair
Leave behind my anger
Confront my fear
Waiting for a moment which is soon to arrive
Time to make it right

Instead of running away
Instead of running away
You should just face it
Instead of running away
Instead of running away
You should just face it
It’s getting harder to see
It’s getting harder to see
‘Cause your all wasted
It’s getting harder to see
It’s getting harder to see
‘Cause your all wasted

You know how hard I’ve tried to let it go
Now I must face these feelings all alone

All alone
All alone to face these feelings
Track Name: No Escape
No Escape

Information overdrive
Knowledge needed to survive
Running low on energy
Forces pulling endlessly

Fighting for our lives with every breath
Death is creeping up with every step
Heaven standing right before your eyes
Hell is catching up not far behind

We are all running from death
Right until our final breath
Numb from all the stimuli
In the end you cannot hide
Enjoy this ride before you die
Enjoy your time in paradise

Fighting for our lives with every breath
Death is creeping up with every step
Heaven standing right before your eyes
Hell is catching up not far behind

Nothing is fair
Nothing is free
There’s no escape for you and me
Becoming sore
Becoming sick
Growing weary of all the tricks
Nothing is fair
Nothing is free
There’s no escape for you and me
Just out of reach
Still within sight
Righteous or wrong
Darkness or light
Track Name: Parasite
Parasite

All you do comes back to you
Hate, greed and lies
Look at these lives you’ve ruined
Now it’s your time

Stay away you parasite
Sucking on the weaker life
You will get what you deserve
With the pain you will incur

Spawned from the underbelly
Made to ruin
Infecting your surroundings
With such disease

Stay away you parasite
Sucking on the weaker life
You will get what you deserve
With the pain you will incur

You will fall
You will burn
Will you never ever learn
Track Name: Vanishing
Vanishing

Over thinking
Feels like I am sinking
Passing by
Don’t forget to wave goodbye
Telling lies to the children of the sky
Afraid no one here can be saved

Falling down a hole
Losing control
Vanish from the eyes of innocence
Falling down a hole
Losing control
Vanish from the eyes of innocence

Over thinking
Substance flows through my veins
Passing by
All we know will come to die
Telling lies to ourselves just to survive
Afraid mother earth will wash us away
Medicated
Prescribed to keep us alive
Over-rated
Bored to death locked in our cages

Falling down a hole
Losing control
Vanish from the eyes of innocence
Falling down a hole
Losing control
Vanish from the eyes of innocence

Turning into the monster we all fear
Drowning from the hate that keeps on spreading
Track Name: Delirium
Delirium

Falling apart at the seams
Whispers turning into screams
These walls are closing in on me
It’s hard to breathe inside this cage
Shaking and nervous
Feeling strange
A ghostly chill crawls up my spine
A voice in my head is tempting me
To question all reality
I’m tied and bound to this machine

Somebody help me out
Starting to fill with doubt
Confused about where I have been
Somebody help me out
Before I scream and shout
Distraught by visions I have seen

Running from the shadows cast onto my spirit
Running from the shadows until I break free

I’ve come to find we’re all blind from the flare
I’ll leave behind so I can find peace of mind

Determined to overcome delirium
Discover
Recover
Faith in myself
Determined to overcome delirium
Discover
Recover
Faith in myself
Track Name: Another Day
Another Day

Fragile and fleeting
Here today
Gone tomorrow
What was lost now is found
Echoing the distant sound

Shifting and spinning
Building up
Breaking down
Once forgot
Now recalled
Echoing inside us all

From day to day we seem to stray from certainty
As our lives proceed we feel the need to persevere
Eventually we all will see the necessity to let it go and say goodbye

Another day
Another way
To find yourself and drift away
Another day
Another way
To find the light and fade away

Another day to drift away
Track Name: None Above
None Above

Two lovers embrace each other
Touching on a piece of the divine
Here I am to mend your wound
Two souls find each other
Standing strong together as one
Here we are to heal the scar

You guide me with strength to carry on through the hate

Two lovers embrace desire
Looking past the outer shell
Here I am
Never to stray
Two souls drifting higher
Heading toward a new consciousness
Here we are
Never to part

You guide me with strength to carry on through the hate building around
Guide me with hope so every day I’ll cherish you

Stay with me to build a life of light
We’ll never be lonely
Stay with me hand in hand
Heart to heart
Mind to soul

Let’s start a revolution
Evolving from this love
Let’s start a revolution
I’ll put none above

I’m all yours
You’re all mine
Let’s unite for all time
I’m all yours
You’re all mine
Let’s unite for all time
Rising grace
Gift of love
You and me
Meant to be
Building trust through this love
No other just like us
Rising grace
Gift of love
You and me
Meant to be
Building trust through this love
No other just like us

Give me life
Give me love
I will put none above
Track Name: Temptation
Temptation

Withered from these burning feelings rising from within
Trying to let go of them but I just can’t forget
Dying is the sensation placed upon the soul
Giving up is not an option, struggling for hope
Fading like a candle glowing on our second wind
Torture from my bleeding hands corroded in sin
Purity lost from the stains of time
Insanity gained from the oozing slime
Razor sharp wounds penetrating more each day
Lost is the memory with so much decay

Cannot sleep anymore from the memories lasting me
What you did to me is a fucking catastrophe
God forbid what I would do if I saw you again
It might turn out to be the only time that I see red

Temptation sneaks in
Penetrates beyond the skin
Standing before my eyes
Turned out to be your lies
Dreamt of the king and queen
Left with this misery

Gave you all my love
Gave you all my heart
Caught under these wings
Trapped by giving in
Gave you all my love
Gave you all my heart
Caught under these wings
Trapped by giving in
Gave you all my joy
Gave you my caress
Something told me no
Even though I said yes

All my pain
All my rage
Deep inside you’ve turned me gray
All my pain
All my rage
Deep inside I am nothing
All my pain
All my rage
Deep inside a growing hate
I was once a child but I’m not so innocent anymore
Track Name: The Void
The Void

No looking back as gravity fails
Set on our course about to set sail
Made the choice to hate and destroy
Slipping faster into the void

I see it coming on the horizon
I feel it drawing near, approaching darkness
I see it coming on the horizon
I feel it drawing near, approaching darkness
I see it coming to wash us all away
I feel it coming to usher in the end

Lost in the void
We’re all sinking
Lost in the void
We’re all drowning
Lost in the void
Track Name: Facade Unraveling
Facade Unraveling

As the sun begins to fade
We’ll see what we have made
Go crumbling away
Nothing will be saved
As the light begins to dim
Flood gates opening
Slowing down of time
Awakening our mind
All we have done
All we have seen
Vanishes before our eyes
Approaching destiny
All we have touched
All we have said
Becomes so meaningful
Taking our last breath

It all comes crashing down
Brings you to your knees
The last thing that you see
Facade unraveling
It all comes crashing down
Brings you to your knees
The last thing that you see
Facade unraveling
Feeding on your doubt
Chew and spit you out
Reveal what’s beneath
Exposing your belief
None of this is real
It’s all a dream
Finally you’ll see
Facade unraveling
