Sea Of Love - Devil & The Deep Blue
Devil & The Deep Blue - 2013
I have started up a band recently with my friend Jessie Anne, and best friend John Turnbeaugh. I’m very excited to get this going, so please stay tuned.
Me and my friend Jessie covering a classic, have a listen there will be plenty more where that came from.

Sometimes the solution is simple, but simple can be improbable, and then the improbable simplicity becomes impossible; and this is what I call absurd.
Life doesn’t get easier but your skin gets tough; you don’t have to hold the weight of the world, there’s people who will care to help you when you think you’ve had enough.
Even with all the right answers, we’d still be making the wrong decisions.
curiosityforclarity asked: of a function of this period in my life rather than your music, but the fact that it can elicit deep emotions like that speaks to your abilities and I applaud you. I am not one that is easy to heart wrench. Another thing is that when I listen to music I rarely find myself able to pay attention to the lyrics. I review this music going off how it made me feel, not what I thought the song meant to you while you were writing. That is why it is so important for me that YOU PUT DOWN THE LYRICS. Aside
Thank you again Jessica, for you wonderful music review. I’m so pleased ‘Already Hell’ is your favorite, I had so much fun with that one; on a side note I did put up the lyrics just now for you & I’m working on ‘Love Is All You Need.’
If my music can touch you the way it did, then I’m finally doing my job. This album I really wanted to dig deep and not just with great new sounds but with only the most adequate and accompanying words that can somehow sum up my life and feelings in these times. My Experimentation will always be pursued you can count on that. I can’t wait to have the time to finish this album and record more soon, but it’s for people like you that keep me motivated and confident. So thank you, thank you, thank you as always.
I hope you have a marvelous day my friend. :D
curiosityforclarity asked: Hello, hello, hello! I am normally more inclined to upbeat instrumentals in songs, so something like "Already Hell" with its devilishly sexy base and American Horror Story reminiscent guitar/piano/whateverthefuckelse strumming is beyond words wonderful. I am always so impressed with your experimentation with music and sound. It is bloody fucking fantastic. “Love is all you need” made me want to cry, it was painfully sad, I almost couldn't listen to all of it, which of course could Be more
Since this message was in three parts I answered the one above, so read on..
And yes they really do need to change the character count on the ‘Ask’ mail.
Already Hell - Original Song by Ryan Escalante
You can take the world and all the silver and gold
You can take my life, but u steal take my soul
A wolf in sheep’s clothing but I can see your tail
But this is already hell…
You may have fooled other men, but you can’t fool me
Blackbird on a wire or up in the trees
You can trap me at sea and tear down all of my sails
But this is already hell
So I here they’re dropping bombs of chemicals now
We want to stop all the wars but we don’t know how
You can get your dinner served at the ring of a bell
But this is already hell…
Leave a world behind that’s just a shell
To generations to come there will be no help
Well your not loosing sleep but we are now
And this is already hell
How can we dream of tomorrow in a world like this
Save all you precious moments like your first kiss
And if your thinking of buying well you better sell
Cause this is already hell…
And for reasons you can’t explain or tell
You get the feeling that you have the time to dwell
Don’t let them get you under their spell
Cause you already in hell…
Love Is All You Need - Original Song By Ryan Escalante
I see this life of mine
From these outside eyes
I’ve been here before
Like a dying star
Stuck up in the sky
I feel petrified
I fell for a lie
I’ve been living blind
Love it aint the same for you
And love it aint the same for me
Love aint gonna make you change
But love is all you need
Love changes everything
On the TV screen
In the magazines
So much apathy
And no sympathy
Where’s human decency
Like a bad disease
