The title track, “Finding Beauty In Chaos” is the climatic album closer. Co-written with Ashton Nyte, the song’s haunting lyrical imagery drifts upon a stark, yet melodic landscape of atmospheric guitars and percussion, lighting a candle of hope in a lost world.
 

Finding beauty in chaos
Watching as the embers
Fall and sway
Lose their way
 
And the mystery between us
Burning brighter even as we
Crawl and pray
Choose to stay
 
Finding beauty in chaos
Taking solace in the words
We learned to say
To light the way
 
Some have come to betray us
Some are dancing in the ether
Of decay
But we remain
 
On the broken ground
As the shadows cloud the view
On the broken ground
We’ll be building something new
 
Finding beauty in chaos
Watching as the embers
Fall and sway
Lose their way
 
And the mystery between us
Burning brighter even as we
Crawl and pray
Choose to stay
 
On the broken ground
As the shadows cloud the view
On the broken ground
We’ll be building something new
 
Finding beauty
Finding beauty
Finding beauty
Finding beauty

From the inception, the album was to be called ‘finding beauty in chaos’. I wanted to create the perfect closing piece, summing up everything in one cinematic soundscape. The haunting guitar riff set the tone I was hearing in my head ... but Ashton’s voice and lyrics completed the aural painting perfectly.
