This single is the first bit of publicly-released music I can remember recording. The title track was written as a "theme song" for my best friend's radio show back then, and the second song expressed my personal feelings towards leaving high school. Obviously, the quality is horrendous, and I hadn't discovered pop filters at the time, but the guitar solo in "Fire And Ashes" is still one of my favorites that I've ever done. Enjoy this little piece of lo-fi history.

Track Name: Reap What You Sow
Nihilist seeing red
Go ahead, push me again
Seven dead, there's seven left
That's seven more I won't regret
I will not re-amend
Hell-bent on your heaven-sent
With your back against the edge
I'll stomp out your dying breath

Swimming through this sea of bones
To reap the very seeds you sow
Tell me how to hold this light
When it's burning me deep down inside
Wander after strangers
Bury them alive
So this is the end of times?
You won't make it out tonight

Catalyst starting war
You resist, but yeah, what for?
When the last of you fall
I'll be watching as you crawl
There's nothing left to be found
I'll grind your bones into the ground
I will not stop, I will not bend
I'll fight you 'til the bitter end
Track Name: Fire And Ashes
Will I be another face on the wall?
I gave you these moments for nothing at all
I'm alright, watching the fire rise
And all the expressions we nailed to the door
Well, it never mattered, now we don't belong anymore
I'm alright, here by the fireside

And I'm sorry, but I need
To find someplace better for me
And I liked it when you had
Somewhere better to be
When I see, and it won't seem
That I'll ever be on my own
And this ringing in my ears
Is calling me home

Let's walk through the fire and into the night
Memories go up in flames like moths to a light
But it's okay, I'll see you in ten years someday
Recover the ashes and pick up the dirt
And I'll wait forever until they start to burn
But it's okay, I'll see you in ten years, maybe
