about

Prepare yourself for the Glass Ghost EP, the exciting debut of Jacksonville's best progressive metal band "The Hereafter".

The EP is an emotional thrill ride, going from sad simple alternate styles to a feel inspired by everything that makes the best progressive metal. It starts heavy, one second, and brings you to an enlightened sense of euphoria the next, right before kicking your teeth in as you're falling up the stairs.

Cheers!

Track Name: Untethered
Untethered:

Dark Slumber Creeps from me,
Lush warmth cradles me.
This phantasm stirs the sea.

Awaken in my bed.
Oddities stir me from sleep.
I rise, to find myself within the sea.
Dazed, an angry sun glaring.

Thinking:
Where am I?
Where am I?
(...and I ask myself again...)
Where am I?

My voice echoing
(...under this...)

into the horizon,
(...impassive sky)

causing tremors and tidal monstrosities.
(...can I...)

Engulfed by the raging sea,
like a void consuming everything,
(...find the shore...)

sinking into the abyss.
(...before I sink?)

My lungs, trembling, wanting for air.
(You only have to breathe...)
The light, fading now.
Is this the end?
(... you only must believe.)
Is this the end?
Is this the end?
(... and reach out.)

(My hand...)
Bursting through the emptiness,
(Is here...)
a hand emerges.
(you only have to look...)

Mustering all my strength
I draw closer to my salvation.
(....and you will find...)

Arms outstretched, fingers clasping theirs,
pulling me to the surface.
(...inside...)

I look to see me savior,
and his face resembles mine.
and He says
(... that you are....)

(you are free. you are Untethered.)

You are Untethered!

YOU ARE FREE!
Track Name: En(dear)ing
Endearing:

I never thought I’d be whole again until you arrived.
Picked up this broken heart and mended everything inside.
You understood me more than I could understand myself,
Eradicated my misery, and taught me how to love myself.

You broke my walls down and turned my life around,
facing reality is easier now that you're here with me.

Blissful Clarity paints me porcelain pale
as Amber eyes reveal the path to my avail
your heart is endearing with guiding love
your benevolent touch never fleeting
in peace we were lost and never searching,
cuz when you're with me I am never alone.

I was an entity full of stagnant energies.
My dull soul overflowed with enmity.
You are vibrance personified: breathing me, imbibing life
Your gold soul took control over me.

You broke my walls down and turned my life around,
facing reality is easier now that you're here with me.

Blissful Clarity paints me porcelain pale
as Amber eyes reveal the path to my avail
your heart is endearing with guiding love
your benevolent touch never fleeting,
in peace we were lost and never searching,
cuz when you're with me I am never alone.

Endearing me!

Blissful Clarity paints me porcelain pale
as Amber eyes reveal the path to my avail
your heart is endearing with guiding love
your benevolent touch never fleeting
in peace we were lost and never searching,
cuz when you're with me, I am never alone.
Track Name: Glass Ghost
Like pain
Without the urgency
Your words stream through me
I have felt
A reflection of myself
Backpedaling
I let the ones I love
Tear me down
Never again will you tear me down

This magnet heart infiltrated,
full of trust, it turned to hate.
It petrified, solidified,
to eradicate a thousand lies.
Blind my eyes, to hold you tight
I couldn’t let you go
Reflections of a Glass Ghost.

Betraying everything I once knew to be true
But I couldn’t imagine a life without you
Still waiting for a stained reflection to shine
Clear again.

Ferocious indignation
Love’s own stinging hatred
Scourned, broken pieces mourned
Never again will you tear me down

Clutch me to your chest
Fabricate the rest
Dimly lit eyes with Darkened skies
Tearing all the wind from my lungs
I sin to see you smile
Watch the façade crack
And you are lost
Lost to the wind

Once dear
Now unfamiliar
A figure made of glass
Stands to watch you pass
As you’re crumbling
Letting cerebral discord
Fracture our past
Never again will I let you back
Never again will I let you in
Magnet heart infiltrated,
full of trust, it turned to hate.
It petrified, solidified,
to eradicate a thousand lies.
Blind my eyes, to hold you tight
I couldn’t let you go
Reflections of a Glass Ghost.
Track Name: Enigmatic
A primordial puzzle fabricated from threads of ethereal matter
Pieces colliding and sometimes aligning,
only to form a more complex equation.
Seeking the answers to an impossible existence, we find
Nothing but more questions.
Hidden beneath the ashes of empty suggestions.

Everything is clear now
My mind is open,
Its all connected.
Our ancestral Spirit,
one with the flesh,
it yearns for liberation.

Descendents of a primal eruption
Echoing through eons into ubitquity
Enigmatic in nature yet brilliant in might
Ancestral light interlacing masses by genetic code
Blessed burning cousins yield answers to the enigma of life

Everything is clear now
My mind is open,
Its all connected.
Our ancestral Spirit,
one with the flesh,
it yearns for liberation.
Everything is clear now
My mind is open,
Its all connected.
Our ancestral Spirit,
one with the flesh,
it yearns for liberation.
Track Name: Extinguish
Follow your heart
Follow your dreams
Ignore anyone who doubts you
Infinite opportunity is within your grasp

You alone can extinguish uncertainty
You alone can extinguish apathy
You alone can extinguish despair
You alone can extinguish regret

Please open your eyes
You’ve bared this long enough
Stand tall, realize you are irreplaceable. You’re irreplaceable!
Mountain peaks will bow to your feet
The stars will no longer be a dream
Galaxies will crash inside your soul
Reality is yours to behold
You alone can extinguish uncertainty
You alone can extinguish apathy
You alone can extinguish despair
You alone can extinguish regret

Never let anybody hold you back or bring you down. Not even yourself. Imagine if someone told the sun not to shine. Your world will change the moment you place faith in yourself. I believe everyone is greater than they know. Uncertainty, enmity, despair, regret: free them from your mind. Today, look toward the horizon. Nothing can stop you from achieving beyond what you can see.
Let your actions define you from this day forward. Baptize yourself in the oceans’ tide of opportunity and wash away what once was. Emerge as a new being born of self-worth. You alone control your destiny, now go forth and walk the earth.
