Self Sufficient

Even though this is an audio book, make sure the settings wheel is on highest quality for the best listening experience. Through small amounts of tinkering I have tried to elevate the quality (resolution) and audio quality that was originally uploaded here from another source.

----------Lyrics----------

Ryan:

Who
Tends
To this garden of decay
Mysterious stranger
Death is my name
Ripping away (Ripping away)
And carries the pain

Thelonius:

Don't pass me by
Just stay awhile
I want to try to be all I can
The feeling I've found
Can never be lost
Just stay with me until I wake again.

Ryan:

Once more
This cycle goes 'round
All becomes clear
When you're no longer in fear
Learn what matters most
As it's fading away..

Thelonius:

Lost in the shroud
Concealed in a dream
Your voice reaches out to silence the screams
I search through the night hoping to find
The life that I once called mine

Ryan:

I spent
All my love
Sowing seeds
So that they can grow
So that they can grow

Thelonius:

Don't pass me by
Just stay awhile
I want to try to be all I can
The feeling I've found
Can never be lost
Just stay with me until I wake again.

Both:

Lost in the shroud
Concealed in a dream (Sweet Stranger)
Your voice reaches out to silence the screams
I search through the night hoping to find (Sweet Stranger)
The life that I once called mine

Don't pass me by (Sweet Stranger)
Just stay awhile
I want to try to be all I can (My sweet stranger)
The feeling I've found
Can never be lost
Just stay with me until I wake again. (My sweet stranger)

I'm lost at sea
I may sink
Into emptiness
So hold me
In your arms
And never
Let me go

The one and only
My companion
In the depths
Of misery
This is how
Things must be

Ahhhh
Ahhhhhhhhh

Teach me...
How to love
Teach me...
How to care
I promise...
I'll make it worth your while

Whisper
(Your hopes and dreams)
And fleeting... (memories)
They echo
(For all eternity...)
These emotions
(Breed insanity)
You're the ghost....
(Of my reality)

I'm...lost at sea.
This emptiness...
I can't define......
But I can live...
Without regret
If you'll be mine......

So hold me
(In...your arms)
And (never let me go)

I'm lost at sea (lost at sea)
This bitterness (this bitterness)
I can't define...... (Can't define)
But I can live... (But I can live)
Without regret
If you'll be mine...... (If you'll be mine...)
If...you'll...be......mine!

Lost at sea (lost at sea)
This loneliness
I can't define (can't define)
If I could live (if I could live)
Without regret
You'd be by my side.....

----------Lyrics----------

This darkness, I'm Atlas...This is my stone.
They call me...
The king-- of sorrow..
This crown-- Of thorns...
Haunts tomorrow
Waiting in limbo
Losing everything
I know

Falling down, I cannot escape
The pressure builds
And suffocates all my feelings of joy
Evaporate into stagnant air
That clings to my face
I want to be free from all that this world
Has wrought on me
And bathe in the light of the memories
But now they seem so empty
But I can rekindle the flame
And change
The faults can be rearranged into something new
Into something true, there's no going back to the old point of view

So familiar, yet so unknown
I claw and carve a hole
Using everything I know
To let light into where I should go
This darkness, I'm Atlas, And this is my stone.

I bleed in ways that you can't see
And every day...
Takes a bit out of me.
Every day...
I bleed in ways that you can't see...
And every day...
Takes a bit out of me.
And every day...
Takes a bit out of me.
Every day...
Takes a bit out of me.

I don't mean to sound defeated
'Cause even though it wears on me
And shadows swallow me alive
I come back stronger
Every time
And that's one more time
That I can find
The things that remind
When I think I'm past
The "finished" line
My purpose renewed
In the spirit of you

The spirit of you,
The spirit of you...

Lyrics:

Ahh....Ahhh Ahhh...
Ahh....Ahhh Ahhh...

I was so young
Life was innocent and fun
Breaking through all the misery
Like a loaded gun
If they ever bring you down
Just remember
Birds with broken wings can still sing.

New Day Are Better Days

Withheld inside your gaze
The secrets I desire
The never ending maze
Hidden from the world

Floating to the surface
My one true self Intertwined... Intertwined.....(Intertwined)
All these intonations
Reflecting from your inner eye
Taking root within my mind... Intertwined.....

Seeds from the past Are blossoming
Guest of my world
Accept these gifts I bring
For it takes a toll On my everything x3

Traveling through this space
These feelings long unknown
Rejuvenating praise
That light shines through the end

Joy in the simple things
Will last you quite awhile
With your selfless smile
With your selfless smile
Your selfless smile
Joy in the simple things
Will last you quite awhile
With your selfless smile
Your selfless smile
Your selfless smile
Your selfless smile
Your selfless smi-iiile
Selfless smile....

Cold and alone
I'm sitting on the edge of the world...
Dead, is how I feel inside...
These memories are haunting our time.

Everyone thinks But is yet to know
Contemplating our... Lost souls...
Rotting, in a deep dark hole
Will they find their way back home?

Cold And Alone... Cold And Alone...
Cold And...Alone.....
Cold...And...Alone...(Alone)

Darkness...It follows me with time...
Madness...It follows us with time...
And the softest tears Weigh you down with time...

Self Sufficient is the co-creation of Ryan Pennington and Thelonius Fabdul that began as an idea in 2009 and finally fully blossomed in 2010 they share Lyrical, Vocal, and Compositional duties which vary depending on the corresponding tracks to keep things fresh and interesting. They are highly ambitious and play a wide variety of eclectic, catchy, trail-blazing music. One-half cathartic and for our enjoyment, and one-half uplifting all of human consciousness.

Out of all our social media we update Gab the most which is basically our homebase for now: https://gab.com/selfsufficient
