about

White Wall is a song dedicated to the victims of the Orlando nightclub shooting. This song was derived of being fed up with hate crimes and acts of terrorism just because people are different than them. I love everyone, I have friends of all walks of life, and the thought of one of my friends dying from senseless violence is enough to drive me mad, so instead of being frustrated, I created this song... with LOVE!

lyrics

White wall of smoke all around me
I’m pushing through the clouds that found me
They’re changing color
As I walk around

They’re flashin' red and blue
I turn them around
The shades of light that I’ve found surround
All of the light captures them now

Cuz they can’t hate, they can’t get away
No where to hide
No one to prey upon

So c’mon, just follow the sound
Move into the light
Move into it now

I’ve found the Divine above
I’ve changed my clouded vision
I’ve turned to love
I've made a decision

To change their colors
To paint them in a vision
It's our creation
This is our decision
This white wall is anything but
The clouded vision that I gave up

When we die
Whas happenin'?
Why do we look to the sky
Whas happenin'?
Whas happenin'?
Whas happenin'?

Intuition based our decision
Until we change, it’s clouding our vision
When will we change and follow our ambition
We must change cuz this isn’t our mission
I don’t accept it, it ain’t my truth
Why don’t we pray, hey, I’m talking to you
I don’t get it, perhaps I never will
Cuz it’s so senseless to grab a gun and kill

Why kill somebody who did nothing to you
They’re not a threat, they’re not bothering you
The things that they do are not up to you
So leave them alone, don't let them fuck with you

White wall of smoke all around me
I’m pushing through the clouds that found me
They’re changing color
As I walk around

They’re flashin' red and blue
I turn them around
The shades of light that I’ve found surround
All of the light captures them now

Cuz they can’t hate, they can’t get away
No where to hide
No one to prey upon

When we die
Whas happenin'?
Why do we look to the sky
Whas happenin'?
Whas happenin'?
Whas happenin'?

So yeah, I suppose this is the part
Where I tell you, “This isn’t real, this is all art”
But this is real life, so why even start?
I can’t back down, it’s not in my heart

It used to bother me, but now it’s so far
I was just like you, but we’ve grown apart
I chose to grow, I watched you start
So don’t stop, cuz, you’ve come so far
Power through, am I gettin' through to you
Or has this white wall separated us too?
I changed the color, they’re all turning blue

I’m so sad inside, I’m crying for you
The smoke is all clearing
The doors are wide open
It’s bellowing through
So this isn’t over

Think before you act
Give yourself a chance to breathe
It’s rainin' out
So I let it cleanse me

When we die
Whas happenin'?
Whas happenin'?
Why do we look to the sky
Whas happenin'?
Whas happenin'?
Whas happenin'?

When we die
Whas happenin'?
Whas happenin'?
Why do we look to the sky
Whas happenin'?
Whas happenin'?
