Hey! You there with the mask & cloak! You right there!
I see you’re going somewhere, may I ask you where?
To a goal fueled by ambition? You don’t say
Why? What’s wrong with your current stay?
The lights are getting dim, you’re stuck in a loop
And you’re unable to stimulate your mind in it’s coop?
Is it really all that bad a thing though?
To feed the machine and earn your dough?
It is you say? How very very strange
And that justifies your struggle for a change?
I see, carry on along your funway then
I won’t be a bother to your eternal when
I know you want out of this doo
I know a good place we can go to
Play a jump game of realms with me you sad mime
I’ll show you an extremely good untroubled time
Brawls to the left
Peace on the right
Poor old brittle realm lady
Crumble to dust cascade-y
Circuses are meant to be mesmerizing – Watch mine
A phoenix birthed from a charred heart
From the skies it flew down to play a part
It tought resilience through its choicest tears
Fanned the flames away off of all your fears
The orange wings spread in distance wide
Embracing the burnt-heart within it’s hyde
A life filled with perpetual neo-negativity
Will once again be cleansed with tenacity
A burning fire within fluctuates between strong and weak
A perseverance keeps resuscitating itself in a life that’s bleak
The Phoenix sheds it’s tears to foster this heart’s raging flame
The rejuvenated soul resumes to take part in your frivolous game
The heart beats again
The crucible of pain will always forge the strongest soul
Whether they be good or bad
Unwillingly driven cold and sad
These thoughts and memories
A misread book of insanities
Same old story, none will ever know
A heart with no summer, only snow
How does it feel to live with a fluctuating mind that’s worse than a chameleon jumping on the vibgyor colors of a rainbow?
Human beings smile or laugh to escape
From this forecfuly projected landscape
Humour is more often derived from someone else’s pain
A fleeting feeling craved for a selfish emotional gain
Caught in a twisted maze of delusions in a noise so deafening
So easy it is to deny the pain of someone else’s suffering
Humour me, go ahead and try your luck
And see for yourself if I truly give a fuck

iTunes – https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/screeching-fingers-ep/1324022933?ign-mpt=uo%3D4
Google Play Music – https://play.google.com/store/music/album/Bright_Screeching_Fingers?id=Bf5g4gmqsyhzvelu7zzejr4p2hu
As the album screening and approval mail from the record label a few days ago states, the album is just a search away on other platforms.
Starting the journey to live the dream hotel hopping singing at 14-15, doing alt-rock vocals at 16-17, metalcore vocals at 18, heavy metal rhythm guitars at 19, thrash metal lead/rhythm guitars at 20(my first exposure to media coverage), a frontman doing vocals, rhythm/lead guitars and writing lyrics for my black metal band at 21(Wherein we as a band experienced killer times from releasing our demo record and our full length album in 2013-14 to performing on Day 2 as a part of Asia’s loudest metal festival, the Bangalore Open Air in 2015) and then finally venturing out on my own as a solo musician under the name “Bright” and getting shortlisted as one of the top upcoming artists of the country by Hard Rock Cafe last year at 24. About time I reaped something from it! From being a double chinned chubby kid to a raging guitarist at 25, 11 years of blood, sweat, tears and an almost irrational stubbornness, bordering on insanity, towards a childhood dream of being a legit musician. As Chuck Schuldiner from Death, an all time favorite band of mine, once put it -“When dreams are followed, time is a test”. Cheers!
Release my solo album through an international record label – Check!
When the still waters
Conspire against the tides
When the snow hustlers
Pause to see epic landslides
When an infinite universe
Rumbles it’s song two-pronged
When the polar converse
Undertakes a silence prolonged
True venture is chaotic
Infinite adventures erotic
A deathly communion orgasmic
Degeneration of the cytoplasmic
A frantic climb done over a dune
Witness a serene vision of Lune
Caught in a search for the elusive Light
The end of the tunnel approaches – Bright
An incredible find
Forever a subdued mind
A voice hoarse from shouting
A rebel seeing and screaming
My latest digital artwork.
Today’s weather report
The barricades deport
In Celsius a hundred degrees
A predestined summit varies
Much cloudy they say
Unhidden is still the way
A relentless rain pouring
An unhinged mind soaring
A cool bright light, swaying snowfall
Experiences cause not our downfall
Rivers and oceans, a constant tide
A visual intake, our hearts open wide
Today’s weather report
Inner barricades deport
