You thought it out in your mind You cut it all to decide You wont fall into line Leaving the world to the side You said you’re done with living the dream Reality’s become obscene Finding planks in a haystack that you can’t see Sometimes it’s all just a smile Even though you can’t disguise What your feeling inside Gonna surface somewhere sometime You said you’re done with living the dream Reality’s become obscene Finding planks in a haystack that you can’t see Bought yourself sometime Running through haystacks around Gonna trip on a plank Never saw it underneath You fall but will you get up Before you’re buried in hay That you once walked upon before you knew Once inside you thought you’d deal with the pain But you realize the planks that surround you are big Much too big to simply step around and leave for another day It’s time to come to grips You said your lost know you’re found Hit the wall now you’re fine Removing planks from your life For, for good ©2010 ASH Music/ASCAP

You can be forced all your life You can be taught what to say When the chips are down who holds all the cards? Catching the rooster muzzling its beak It may crow two times never reach three When the time comes will you know what you did all your life You can be tossed to the ground You can be cornered in the yard But when push comes to shove, who’s left on their own? Now I would suppose you’re not the only one to never know I’ve got this funny feeling it’s eating at the world as a whole How can the things that you say Ever make sense while you’re biting your lip When selfishness seems to rule all your words So you’re confronted what did you do Is it too much to speak what is true Do you deny or you follow suit to save your self All that you worked for and believed Can be dismissed so casually But when time comes you won’t be on your own Now I would suppose you’re not the only one to never know I’ve got this funny feeling it’s eating at the world as a whole ©2010 ASH Music/ASCAP

Come Back 03:44
You said you’re giving up Come back You said your race is run Come back It’s not over till it’s over Don’t look back or over your shoulder You feel you’re forgotten Come Back You were always wanted Come Back Seems your dreams are deserted Don’t give up or skirt through the issue Someone’s paid the price Come back You can still live your life Come back Seasons may come, and seasons may go That rivers flowin Don’t give up on love Come back Don’t throw away what is yours Come back Seasons may come, and seasons may go That rivers flowin ©2010 ASH Music/ASCAP

Hey kid, what you worried bout Hey now, what’s this all about What’s this all about kid What drug you taken now To take off the edge Off the edge of life A beautiful mother Loves you always You push her away Just to get a fix in What’s this all about kid Won’t you, open your eyes To see what’s all around What’s all around you, kid Can’t you soften your heart Before what’s all around May soon be gone, kid Beautiful father Loved you the best way We all have our problems So don’t take on his What’s this all about kid Hey you, what you worried bout Hey kid, what’s been on your mind What’s been on your mind ©2010 ASH Music/ASCAP

In an effort to maintain you throw Away lives and blame focusing on the now You cut what once was vital and promising For a thriving industry Now are struggling just to see a vision Perhaps self-inflicted now will be deemed The gifted Not realizing their loses will eventually be Their causes for downsize and demise. Cut your nose off to spite your face Is it policy or merely someway to place blame Desperately seeking someway to save your ship Throw your passengers over And hope that some of them will know To swim Perhaps self-inflicted now will be deemed The gifted Not realizing their loses will eventually be Their causes for downsize and demise. ©2010 ASH Music/ASCAP

Omnibus 02:17
You’re so caught up with yourself You don’t have time for the world You know how to save yourself And that’s all you really want You read all the fancy books Using all their fancy words But do you know what you say Or is it just a façade When they see through you what will you do What book to turn to for the right words Everything’s as if it seems Motion captured in a frame Pictures you take in your mind View the world the way you want Always standing 10 feet tall Looking down upon the crowd You’re the same as all of us One for all an omnibus Juxtapose you suppose We’re that different There you go time will sow What you’re reaping ©2010 ASH Muisc / ASCAP

Just because you put your best foot forward Doesn’t mean your moving the right way With all your heart you do what you feel is right But one thing's for sure you’ll never know if you don’t All the colors seem to blend A tapestry of failure, faults and sins Wake up, the dawn of a new light Put your best foot forward once again You feel the same you did two steps back But you keep on marching just the same Songs the same, the beat has slightly changed Now you’re marching to your own drum All the colors seem to fade An empty canvas where your dreams once lived Wake up, the dawn of a new light Put your best foot forward once again ©2010 ASH Music/ASCAP

All You Need 03:54
You feel if you don’t follow All you’ll do is wallow Find your self worth In things you swallow Or material things Things you store and save When it’s time to leave Who gets your posessions All you feel, all you need, all you’ll be for not It feels wrong, but in time, all you need is love Can you stop for a moment And reconsider How you treat others Can get you richer You won’t be the same Same as yesterday When all you had Was all you could muster All you feel, all you need, all you’ll be for not It feels wrong but in time all you need is love You can’t, see, but you can learn how Nowhere to be, you’re not meant to No one, you meet, you can’t impact Nothing you’ve done, can not be undone ©2010 ASH Music/ASCAP

You picked yourself up from the ground It was so unforgiving You stumbled back into the fray That you so selfishly made For others that felt you would blame it On the pomp and circumstance That you yourself thought you could make If it wasn’t by chance It’s more than just, it’s more than just words Why is it always that the ones That have so much to share Put themselves up on a stage Where no one can reach them Sometimes it’s more than just some words Written to some music Sometimes it’s more than what you read Actions faster than words It’s more than just, it’s more than just words You see were made to live a life Arms stretched, open handed Forever giving of ourselves So others may see That there is more to life than What it is that we need But who we’ll be When it comes time for restitution ©2010 ASH Music/ASCAP

In Motion 02:40
Wheels spinning with the wind Moving forward every day Catching the scenery Still you keep spinning towards this thing One day hoping to obtain All of these things That everyone says will make you king But in the end You’re left in vain Wheels spinning with the wind Moving backward everyday Catching the scenery And all the things that would make you king Leave you in vain In motion Your simply spinning anywhere In motion With no destination In motion With no sense of direction in mind Don’t you feel it’s about time © 2010 ASH Music/ASCAP

about

Brae Detroit, Michigan

From the throne of a drummer, to standing behind a makeshift cocktail drum kit, Brandon (Brae) Husken has gone from the back of the stage to the front.

Chord shape permutations of sacred geometry, catchy melodies and a rhythm centric approach to song writing, the music is thoughtfully crafted much like paint to canvas.
