How can all this dissolve, with so much remorse, when I’ll burn fast every time? This failing path, reveals us for what we are. Now, with open eyes. How will I carry on, before the weight of this sorrow follows a faint, heavy heart? It smothers the light you hold so weak. Take shelter, from this creature. In time, we may just fade away, recluse in our thoughts, and hope for someone to crack this paper door and shine a light to part this fog. Enough to find a way home. Reveal apart of me and hide the rest of everything. Now, with open eyes. How will I carry on before the weight of your sorrow follows a faint, heavy heart, and smothers the light you hold so weak. Take shelter, from this creature. No, I won’t fall from grace, I will endure your reign. With hope I’ll face, this fear and guilt. I’ll rebuild this heart and start a new. Some where I’ll find a way within. To save this love, I’ll wage war. Now we’re not so wrong.

Paralyzed, lingering motionless, with patient eyes. I’m still waiting for a way home. Steadily, fasten the chains that claim to this belief, or lose it all one by one. Embarked with a wonderer, that whispers a somber tone. until a secured apprehension realizes the current. I can’t seem to remember why, I can’t seem to remember why rivers lead through discarded woods. Overgrown from abandoned dreams when, a storm is surrounding me, carrying my mind away while I’m still burning. Now, climbing higher, this flare encircles, enraged by silence. It’s all in my head. This hope has a moment, and so far a stronger resolve. Still cursed with a wonderer, restraining serenity. But now, securing perception prevails this deception. I can’t seem to remember why, I can’t seem to remember why rivers lead through discarded woods. Overgrown from abandoned dreams when, a storm is surrounding me, carrying my mind away while I’m still burning.

Who are you, who am I? Who are you, who am I?

With wearied eyes, focused on this fire. A hand in time, carries this fear away. This elusive fiend, won’t maintain its hold, with these fading lies. I’ll find a house that’s stronger, restored, with vows of, eternal. Repealing doubt and refusing pride, each time I prevail, this apparition will fall beneath my eyes if I can find a way to wake up. I’ll wear this stained token of my crusade. Atoning for the time we spend wading through a seditious lake (Treading water) and reclaim this place (Repairing mistakes). This elusive fiend, won’t maintain its hold, with these fading lies. I’ll find a house that’s stronger, restored, with vows of, eternal. Removing fear and denying shame, each time I prevail, this apparition will fall beneath my eyes if I can find a way to wake up. I’ll rise beyond this and cultivate another end. I’ll find a house that’s stronger, restored with vows of love. Encouraged by this prolonging silence. You’ll find him lurking, along with the poison. Scheming Vengeance, now unearthed by hope this creature falls. Will I return from disorder? Prevailing an endless endeavor. This moment of silence, followed by solace. Retire this search for monster. And scour the remains of a man who still wanders forward regardless of turmoil. Will I return from disorder? Prevailing an endless endeavor. This moment of silence, followed by solace.

We’re So far away, with only a name. We’re so far away, we’re so far from home. I am alive holding the sky. With all I can find, I won’t leave this time. Removing lies, with only my eyes. A vacant path, once more bears life. How lovely this fire feels, burning away my fall. We’re So far away, with only a name. We’re so far away, we’re so far from home. I am alive holding the sky. With all I can find, I won’t leave this time. I will (I know we’ll) survive, if only to shine, holding the sky. With all I (Stand here we) can find, a moment to shine, I won’t leave this time.

about

This marks 8 years since the original intrumentals of "Unearthly Creature" were released to the masses. This was the second EP written for the project and signified a move away from the norm this point. Bands like The Dear Hunter and Saosin started making their way onto the playlists. This introduction, fused with my interested in Post-Rock and Post-Metal, put a different spin on the writing process. We now continue the experiment this project started on but not only have we rebuilt these songs from the ground up, tapping in to that same inspiration, vocals have been added to fully realize the original blueprint for this EP.

about

Becoming The Lion Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Starting in 2010 with one man's dream, an experiment with heavy riffs and rhythmic melodies came to be. Now Becoming The Lion is taking those original melodic instrumentals and finally add vocals to fill this project out. Taking influence from progressive metal and post-hardcore bands like Deftones, Thrice and Oceansize, Becoming The Lion adds a unique twist to this crowed style. ... more
