This is a completely rewritten version of an album I released in 2012 called Awake in Silence.

All music written & recorded by Steven Ostroske at home studio in Columbus, Ohio.

If for some reason I ever run out of free downloads, don't worry! I'll make more available as soon as I actually realize they're out ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Track Name: Dreamer
Born of a relentless dream
A lesson to be learned, the unspoken words
The voices ring from an ever-growing distance
Will we become the creator or the witness?
Track Name: Solace
Entwined with the day you left home (you are the inspiration)
Silence so deep you could never know (you let your best intentions burn)
If I could tear down the sky (burn away)
If I could black out the sun
Burn from the inside out
You were the solace
No, you were the calm before the storm
Wave your hands across the sky
Let’s hold back this cloud before it comes crashing down
Wave your hands across the sky
Let’s hold back this cloud until it comes crashing down
Tell me we can’t be wrong
Where has all the silence gone?
Released from holding on
A wave of tension has come undone
Track Name: Escape
The memory breathes out through another resounding verse
But I never let the undeserved speak the echoed words
I only wonder if we had kept our hearts from mending?
We’ve ended this ride
I know I should try to move on
And I know I should take control
To escape; to let you go
Though you know you’ve left me out to dry
Before you take one more breath, realize:
I can’t spend my time hoping I’ll wake up next to you
You gave a sudden farewell; an absolute decay
But I gave in when I backed out upon the advent of doubt
Intentions; intentions
Track Name: Images
Recreate the forgotten moments we’ve erased
To awaken the constant motion redefining our continuation
Take your flame
Break this cloud to create a future without shame
Ignite the hope
You won’t be forgotten
Escape the predictable outcome
There is no end to the disconnection
There is no other way to renew the sincerity
Looking at what you’d become
The way you seemed so aggravated
Step aside; come alive to revive what’s inside:
The familiar sentience
Let it go; don’t let the inhibition take control
Take control; revive the familiar sentience
Take control
Escape the predictable outcome
Don’t let the images pale the spectrum
Believe nothing short of one thousand dreams
Your resonance will never cease
Track Name: Awake
I’ll never walk away
I’ll never let you down
We can’t escape this change
A little ripple goes a long way
We all need an answer
We paid the ultimate price
Forever growing into a new life
Open your eyes
You’re not the chosen one
You’re not the anchor
Nothing’s predetermined
We have now come full circle
Awaken, open your eyes
Track Name: Rediscover
Will they hear us? Will they fear us?
Will we become just a faint memory?
Lost in the midst of all we’ve forgotten
All we’ve left; all we’ve left behind
I’ll never walk away; I’ll never let you down
You won’t see me falling to the ground
We can’t escape this change
A little ripple goes a long way
I believe that this is not over
And I believe that we can rediscover ourselves
I believe that this has just begun
The burning question, soft-spoken
An endless desire, we found the reasons
So we create the solution with the lessons we have learned
We will not be the forgotten
