ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This album is a first attempt at proving the power of one lone voice. I believe that there is nothing more permanent than the written and spoken word, and never has a moment in my lifetime seemed more crucial than now to say my piece. We are living through one of the worst political administrations in the history of the world, and if we do not step up now, no one will. All forms of life are being affected by what is transpiring, but too few are offering the real strength of their opposition; what we must understand is that violent actions only perpetuate themselves. Liberating a country by blowing them up only creates a new, more deadly disease to threaten the human condition, and as we become the children of a nation who is both the victim and the perpetrator of such ideology, how and what will we choose to pass on?
Voicing our discontent with Amerikan behavior through poetry and literature turns a protest into a legend. The same is true for the account of the personal journey. I seek to solidify this moment in the awakening of humankind. I believe that even in the midst of the horrendous destruction being unleashed by the Bush Administration and anyone who supports and/or practices similar efforts, a realization is dawning upon us that none before have conceived. We are, for the first time, beginning to understand that we are connected to, rather than in control of this universe. This will force us to reconsider much of what we have been taught to believe. Right now, the exploration of this new territory, as well as the events propelling us into it, can leave us wandering in a desert of unseen boundaries; this is a collection of the personal, intended to reflect the collective pilgrimage out of these seemingly dark times.

Peace, Love, and Blessings
and remember...
The Revolution Begins Within!

Thanks to Angie, my family, and everyone at Davis and Elkins College for years of love, support, and inspiration. And something bigger than a thank you to Matt and Eric at Big T, without whom none of this would've happened.

- Tim Armentrout
