Literature
Blank Pages
It was never meant to be
A distortion of reality
With the evidence after the fact 
The story is always in tact
Faith in the future
Leaping forward 
Without looking 
Down
Bullets falling on the floor
Perfect order
Drawn into the plan
Cue the press, desensitize
Perfect order
Drawn into the plan
Bound to the script
I can't read ahead
Leave it to the playwright
Blank pages to be read
Ink to the paper
Action before plot
The moral of the story
Later to be taught
Connecting the dots
The picture’s in plain sight
Number to number
The pencil knows what to write
The sequel before it ends
The playbook forced to bend
Telling tale after tale
No chance for it to fail
It was never meant to be
A distortion of reality 
With the evidence after the fact 
The story is always in tact

Literature
Echo Chamber
When all you hear is noise,
The loudest voice is right
Always right
When all you see are walls,
There’s nowhere left to go,
So you are
Drowning out the voice of reason
Amplifying your own
Normalize your own perception
You’ll never be alone
Reflections of yourself
Extended out for miles and miles
With mirrors all around
The outside seems so far
So you are
Drowning out the voice of reason
Amplifying your own
Normalize your own perception
You’ll never be alone
Surrounding yourself with reflections
You bask in your conceit
Patching up every single hole ‘til your
Echo chamber’s complete
[We’re all the heroes of our own stories
There’s no need to see the other side
If you can rationalize it
I didn’t realize it at the time,
but I was building a circle around myself
A construct of my own creation
A construct of sameness,
Of opinions that reflected my own
Reflections and shadows of myself]
These reflective walls do not confine me
Your shadows do n

Literature
The Void
The last thing I remember
Is getting closed inside
Powerless and helpless and
Petrified
Trapped inside this capsule of a life
I can feel my world shifting, drifting
Beyond my control
Fighting just to breathe
Blinded to the outside
Knocking from the inside
Let me out!
I can only see this world,
But I know there’s more outside
Hidden beneath the surface
I can see it in my mind
Spiraling away
Everything I’ve known, destroyed
Drifting into nothingness,
We are drawn into the void
Floating through the endlessness
Spinning in this weightlessness
Disconnected consciousness
Infinite nothingness
Blinded to reality
Disembodied, I can’t see
As I wake from hypersleep
Drawn into the void
I can only see this world
But I know there’s more outside
Hidden beneath the surface
I can see it in my mind
Spiraling away
Everything I’ve known, destroyed
Drifting into nothingness
We are drawn into the
Endless abyss
Metamorphosis
Floating through nothingness
Weightlessness

Have you heard this before?
The same flow, the way it goes
Like a familiar face
In an unfamiliar place
You know you’ve heard it before
We all know the way it goes
And they all know how
You’ll just listen anyway
We’ve all heard it before
The same song a thousand times
This was never meant to be
Wish I could burn it to the ground
Can you hear it?
Can you see it through the sounds?
Don't you worry someday,
They may figure you out?
Have you heard this before?
We all know the way it comes
Familiarity
Is what you’re wanting it to be
You know you’ve heard it before
We all know the way it goes
It sounds exactly the same, but
You’ll just listen anyway
We’ve all heard it before
The same song ten thousand times
This was never meant to be
Wish we could burn it to the ground
Can you hear it?
Can you see it through the sounds?
Don’t you worry someday,
They may figure you out?
Formulaic imitation
Void of any innovation
Not a single deviation
All of this

Literature
Sisyphus
It’s so clear, it’s so apparent
So why don’t you understand?
In every single case
You maintain the upper hand
Living in our separate worlds
We’re selectively connected
Like light through a glass
My words are misdirected
My input is always refracted,
Rejected or misunderstood
Dismissing other perspectives
As if it would do any good
We’re speaking the same language
But sometimes I’m not so sure
The glass is becoming darker
Your intentions are growing more obscure
Are we from such different places,
That you cannot see my side?
Would it be so difficult
If only you had tried?
My words hitting a wall
The paint never sticks
But the more I try
The messier it gets
You only give me part of the picture
The rest is left to chance
Withholding bits and pieces
You’re setting the stage in advance
Tallying the wins and losses
Always keeping score
Forever pushing forward
Always wanting more
And so you’ve traded everything
For your idealistic goal
I know yo

Do you really know
What you can feel?
Is it real?
Do you know?
Can you take in
What surrounds you?
Is it there?
Have you noticed
The system all around you?
Do you really know
What you can hear?
Is it real?
Do you know?
Can you see
What surrounds you?
Is it there?
Have you noticed
The glitches all around you?
I can see changes in
Everything I’ve ever known
Breaking down
Virus, glitches
Infiltrate your system
Programmed logic
Coded in the system
In what my brain could never see
The hollowness in the fabric
Of my reality
I am the system

Awakening
My eyes are opened to the same room
The same place, the same time
My surroundings without any variation
Everything is by design
My goals are set, my path is clear
This constant loop, my destiny
And as I carry on my daily undertaking
I hear a whisper from within
Don’t you see what’s happening?
Coming to the realization
That there’s something more
The story we’ve been given
Isn’t our own
Navigating my subconsciousness
To find out where the puzzle ends
Coming to the center of my soul,
The core of myself  
My eyes are open to the nature of this world
It wasn’t always what it seemed
And as I try to organize my own intentions
I’ve finally woken from this dream
This foreign voice that seems to lead me
Strangely pulling from within
And as I try to break out from my programmed nature
I realize the voice is mine
I finally found my destiny
I’ve come to the realization
That there’s something more
The story we’ve been given
Isn’

Literature
Perfect Silence
And so I, I was waiting for the end
The conclusion that never came
At first I was relieved
Drifting peacefully, sleeplessly
Over time, I came to comprehend
This unbroken, unceasing journey to nowhere,
Forever dreaming of sleep
Longing for brevity and reveries,
For days without a care
The infinite is all that I have,
And nothing can compare
Limitless memories
Far too much for me to contain
In this perfect stillness
Only thoughts remain
Perpetually alone
This unbearable solitude
In this perfect silence
Impossible magnitude
When will this life fade away
Carried to some tranquil place where
Distant memories all fade away
Laid to rest so I can finally sleep
There is nothing, nothing more for me
I’m left waiting for what I hope will come
And so I, I continue my unbroken, unceasing
Journey to the void

Member since 2007 – account #3! lol

I'm an american musician currently performing internationally.
I sing and play piano and stuff: www.garrisonfletcher.com
but I'm also in a progressive rock band - Tetrafusion -

*Click the banner to hear some*



My number one past time is browsing new submissions to dA; artists need to know that their work is appreciated, and this is a really great community for that.

I'm really into photography/videography and music production. There's a lot to say - too much really - so I'll just leave it at
if you want to know more, shoot me a note!
