Good Scar 04:37
are you the type of guy that calculates your moves you play it safe and sound you play the game not to lose afraid to take a chance you think you'll wait and stay stuck in the middle just burning through another day are you the type of guy you like to look around for ways to light it up so you can burn it down you like to push it hard play the game to win keep on climbing the ladder just an illusion are you looking for something something real something true are you looking for freedom where insecurity rules to know what you want you gotta know who you are if it's a battle worth fighting it's gonna leave a good scar i'm the type of guy it's hard to nail me down some days i'm flyin' high some days can't get off the ground sometimes i'm scared of my shadow sometimes i chase it off these thoughts i can't help but straddle just wanna make'em stop we're all looking for something something real something true we're all looking for freedom but insecurity rules to know what we want we gotta know who we are if it's a battle worth fighting it's gonna leave a good scar it's gonna leave a good scar
Only Imagine 04:12
do you ever take a moment and stare at your own face the lines they tell the story of the journey to this place are you living in the moment or clinging to the past are you too scared of a future that keeps coming way too fast if you can only imagine don't be afraid to dream open up your heart embrace the mystery of life when will you ever notice the illusions have to fail you can fight to stay between the lines and still go off the rails if you can only imagine don't be afraid to try open up your heart there's more to you than meets the eye so you start to ask some questions now be honest with yourself don't trust all their suggestions trust your heart and nothing else so the questions keep on coming where do you go you go from here don't be surprised if you get angry but don't give in to fear
Hide 04:45
dirty dishes in your kitchen dirty laundry on your floor all the dry bones in your closet you can't shut the door all the clutter in your basement you can't give away and the bodies in your bedroom you can't hide the shame weeds out in the garden hide the colors from the light the fruit that you've been growing slowly rotting on the vine winds that keep on blowing always find the whispering pines you're afraid they might be telling all the secrets you can't hide this hurt that you've been hiding behind a pretense that is feigned all the effort in misguiding to throw us off your trail of pain who do you think you're fooling as a pillow hides your screams is all this pretending worth all this suffering the winds will keep on blowing and they'll find the whispering pines they're telling you a secret that you don't have to hide no more no more you don't have to hide no more no more
Bless You 04:26
i can't take it any more all the pain i've held of yours it was never even mine to bear i just wanted to help what happened to you isn't fair and for all your heavy cares what you're asking me to do won't make them go away it doesn't meant that i don't care i can't give what i don't have to share bless you bless you love heal your broken heart and every wounded part bless you bless you love from within and from above bless you love with the way that things were left unresolved with ends unkept i regret that it was such a mess i still carry it today you may find yourself surprised how many times you cross my mind i think of you and thoughts are kind and send you love i want to be who i should be but i can't walk this close to you and not lose me even if you'd understand me it wouldn't mean a softer landing
Lighter Fare 02:59


The Hunger No One Sees is a 5-song collection exploring the hidden hurts and hopes we often keep from others and, at times, even ourselves...

Insecurity and isolation.

Blessing while letting go.

Embracing life without fear.

Finding serenity in the midst of it all.

May these handful of songs bless the space between us.
