The song "Zombies" isn't about the walking dead. It is about drug addiction and withdrawals, but also uses the idea of "zombies" as both a metaphor of the public psyche AND the mental state of a drug addict when he's between highs. It is not necessarily referring to street drugs, because I want to include the mentality of the person who is on way too much prescription medication as well.

When you listen to the lyrics about how this guy feels, you can see that he's willing to ignore the consequences for the sake of his drug. He goes from "willingly ignorant" to "totally apathetic".

The red part in the log represents the chemical structure of the main ingredient in Xanax, a powerful antidepressant.

Lyrics:
(Verse 1)
I see the Storm a-comin'
I see the coulds a-formin'
I'll pay no attention to the weather today
Cuz it's dead behind those darkened eyes
(Verse 2)
Ain't no emotion stirrin'
ain't no ideas a-formin'
I'll pay no attention to the wind and the waves
Cuz it's cold inside that hardened mind
But could it be
that as we're livin' in a fantasy
we've given over our minds to a life we never wanted to lead
and so I, turn up the bottle and try to forget tomorrow
like it doesn't really matter to me
cuz these eyes have been blind to the dark and the light
and all I see is the gray in between
(chorus)
when the lights go out and the darkness falls
how long will you hold on?
when the push comes to shove and the time finally comes
how far are you willing to go?
I knew I wouldn't be the only one
I knew I wouldn't be the only one
fighting the Zombie Virus off
(Verse 3)
I don't care what you're saying
Can't hear the song you're playing
I'll pay no attention to the kids in the way
Cuz I'm numb behind this hollow smile
But could it be
that as we're livin' in a fantasy
we've given over our minds to a life we never wanted to lead
And so I, I pop another pill
I take the chaser like it doesn't really matter to me
cuz these eyes have been blind to the dark and the light
and all I see is the gray in between
(chorus)
when the lights go out and the darkness falls
how long will you hold on?
when the push comes to shove and the time finally comes
how far are you willing to go?
I knew I wouldn't be the only one
I knew I wouldn't be the only one
fighting the Zombie Virus off
(Final Chorus)
I knew I wouldn't be the only one
Cuz it's dead behind those darkened eyes
I knew I wouldn't be the only one
Cuz I'm numb behind this hollow smile
I knew I wouldn't be the only one
I knew I wouldn't be the only one
fighting the Zombie Virus off

4th Quarter Closed

This is an announcement for all of my entertainment friends in the Michigan area, that I will no long be doing any events OUTSIDE of Shiawassee county for the rest of the year. I've had a few invitations to attend events or to perform at events outside of the county, and as much as I love to help, I simply can't do it this quarter.
This trend will continue through most of January, and perhaps February, if the winter is really bad. I will remain in the studio, finishing up my recordings for Ascension, and for some other projects in the works. I will always be open to discuss any local events WITHIN the Shiawassee Area. For inquiries about major/large but non-local events, please call or email me.
Thanks guys, and have a great rest of the year.

#BlackSheepSquad in full effect!

I had the chance to do the final mix and master of this song, for my friend ALIAS. We are starting a new movement called The Black Sheep Squad, and this is the first release from his album that ties into that.

If you haven't done so already, please make sure you jump on over to Aaron Bowlin's YouTube channel and leave a like and a comment for all of the Record Executives to see *tee hee*
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IqCJChz0pwU

Also, since this song and video is about spiritual warfare, tell us about one of your experiences in spiritual warfare. We definitely want to hear about it in the comments section. Alias and I will both be commenting on everything that we see this week.

LYRICS ARE BELOW

Honesty, Chastity, virtues held on high
Purity, Reliability, are the places in which I strive
DOWNLOAD THIS SONG FREE
ON MY SUMMER SAMPLER
But the heart has a motive, it's beating from within
But the heart doesn't know it's unable to comprehend

Integrity, fidelity, were recently cast aside
And my sanity and security we're the ones to be sacrificed
Now we're starting it over
The heart is still broken
I know that I need more time
To discover the things that I need to regain my life
 And nobody knows the truth

If anybody knew what was really on my mind
(don't kiss the girl x2)
Mixed and Mastered by J-Mez

No one needs to know how I really feel inside
(don't kiss the girl x2)
I know that I'm broken, I'm trying to cope
But my emotions Never Lie
Does anybody know if there's a way to do this right?
Don't kiss the girl

Oh, the truth.
It feels so good not to fight it.
And I'm telling you, there's no way I could ever deny it
But my heart isn't Frozen
I need you to know because I want you by my side
But I need to believe there's a way I can do this right
So now that you know the truth

If anybody knew what was really on my mind
(don't kiss the girl x2)
No one needs to know how I really feel inside
(don't kiss the girl x2)
I can never be sure, and I've fallen so short.
I'm broken deep inside.
Does anybody know if there's a way to do this right?
Don't kiss the girl

If anybody knew what was really on my mind
(don't kiss the girl x2)
No one needs to know how I really feel inside
(don't kiss the girl x2)
I know that I'm broken, I'm trying to cope
But my emotions Never Lie
No, my heart isn't Frozen
I need you to know because I want you by my side
Yes, I'm trying to wait to avoid this mistake
 But still, I have you here tonight
Does anybody know if there's a way to do this right?
(Don't kiss the girl x3)
