Sometimes we notice things that are happening around us and because they are not happening to us, we stay silent. Sometimes people need to hear what you've got to say. This is for someone in need of a different perspective.


I see you sitting over there thinking thoughts that you shouldn't own. It breaks my heart to see you with tears in your eyes, its a pain I've felt before. You deserve so much more. I see you give but he doesn't give it back. I see you sitting over there waiting for someone to tell you that you're fine.

You're okay. The light in your eyes gets me through the day. Your love is enough, it is him who you can't trust. Give him up, and get the chance to get it back.

I see him sitting over there with women to match the week. It pains my gut to see a man so shallow ignore his lady when she speaks. I want to scream in his ear. Even though he's deaf I'd like for him to hear. I see him sitting over there. I'm keeping a watchful eye since you're not.

You're an angel, heaven sent. He's a forsaken soul from hell. A slithering snake, a decision you'll make to pick up the shovel, to rid of the problem..

..it is him. Not you. Do not fear that you've wronged is the point in the song. You should know when to let go of the poisonous vine keeping you on the line. If you can't fall asleep, night terrors start to creep. Up the covers, in your head. Just know you're not dead.

You are fine. You're ok. God blessed you with breath to get you through the day. Your love is all, throw caution at the wall. Give him up and get the chance to get it back.

To Depart Washington, D.C.

To Depart is the antithesis of complacency. A foggy window into the clouded heart and thoughts of musician Bastian Kunu.

Better recognized for his heavy hitting, kit killing work drumming in DC based A MARC Train Home, it's interesting to see the differences of his personal music. You get a chilling sense of how the songs are real, sung from experience, all in an effort to heal mental anguish.
