about

Unkempt Herald’s album “KIDDO” is dedicated to Eva Magdalena Smith who lost her battle with depression on December 16, 2016 at 10:45 pm. She was 16 years old. Eva was a bright light that burned out far too soon and left her pain for the world to hold in her stead. Eva is survived by her Father Aaron, Stepmother Stefanie, and baby sister Amelia.

We would like to remind anyone reading this that this album is about surviving. If you or someone you know is struggling with depression and/or suicidal thoughts or actions please do all you can to help them/yourself and remember there are people you can talk to who care about you and your existence.

Track Name: In These Wilds
In These Wilds

I can't describe the push
It leaves me wounded
Fatigued by my own weight
I fall through thin tectonics
Tired and empty
Been broken before but I
Can't find the peace (piece) I need
To stand up straight

Do we really have control??

Is the pull or the push
I can't tell on my own
I weigh my value
Against the cold hard
I hear the demons voice
Taunting my every move
Are we ever alone
Are they always pushing

Do we really have control (x2)

To never have answers
To move without reason
To be poisoned by feeling
Is more than some can bear
Never have answers
While living confusion
With no clear way out
Some go too far
SOME GO TOO FAR!!!!!!
Track Name: The Note
Going over each line...
Trying to understand...
Reason... logic... rationale…
Determined plan….

Left here to wonder...
What’s the lesson I’m left with?
Tell me why…

Shaking, breaking down…
Struggling to comprehend
All the time that I have wasted

The darkness, it can be too much sometimes.
If you don’t share the weight you’ll break inside

Cuz everybody has a time in life
when they focus on the master plan,
But some people hold it in their bones
and try to reach it with the razors edge
Track Name: Working Through the Sh!t
I've been feeling useless a waste
Since life took a turn for the worst
I keep it off my face in the public
But I don't know how long I can try
Feels like I won every battle to lose the war
Why let me win every battle??!?!?!

Don't tell me keep my head held high
I've spent too much time in the clouds
And when I came down I could not fly…
I just fell to the ground.
What does this empty world expect of me
I've been bleeding for so long
How much more of me can you expect of me
I've lost more than I can stand

My hands feel tied
I feel you here with me though you've died
I hear you on the wind
You're in every step I take in my mind

This space is not safe for me
Something here want me to die
I feel the pain and the envy
The anger remains inside
I feel it break my heart
Mistakes that stain the dark
To young to see the world in that way
Why are there things we can't explain
Why should I exist
With your name as pain on my lips

I am still searching for the answer (x3)
Why do we even exist?
The question stuck in her eyes
I tried my ways to assist
As I was searching for the answer
I am still searching for the answer (x3)
Track Name: Magdalena
I've been feeling useless a waste
Since life took a turn for the worst
I keep it off my face in the public
But I don't know how long I can try
Feels like I won every battle to lose the war
Why let me win every battle??!?!?!

Don't tell me keep my head held high
I've spent too much time in the clouds
And when I came down I could not fly…
I just fell to the ground.
What does this empty world expect of me
I've been bleeding for so long
How much more of me can you expect of me
I've lost more than I can stand

My hands feel tied
I feel you here with me though you've died
I hear you on the wind
You're in every step I take in my mind

This space is not safe for me
Something here want me to die
I feel the pain and the envy
The anger remains inside
I feel it break my heart
Mistakes that stain the dark

Track Name: Missing Person
WHERE ARE YOU NOW!!!!(X3)
WHERE!!!!!!
You say the words you think will help,
But absence is your face
and cliche is the only well you draw from
Want them to think you show support
But you’re just a fake and do it all just for the sport

SO WHERE ARE YOU NOW!!!!(X3)
WHERE!!!!!

Your social media a stage
for you to show off all off your compassionate ways
They don’t know your other face
the one that only cares when there’s attention for your page

I have no need for this at all!!!

You’ve got the gall to say you really care?
I think you’re something less than filth.

You’re a user and a liar.
Just a coward, an emotional vampire.
Draining all my feelings so that you can feel complete and alive

You’ve got the nerve to think you can compare
But they are nothing at all
YOU’RE NOTHING
NOTHING
YOU’RE NOTHING NOT AT ALL
Track Name: Sorrow Can Be a 4 Letter Word
I must keep this inside
This is where i live now
The sensation of falling
This choking is my home
I feel like I’ve died
This world can’t hold her soul
The feeling of flying…
Is the same as falling slow

No one wants me here
But it’s where I am.
How long before… they dont give a damn?

Sorrow can be a 4 letter word

It burns my eyes…
Like acid rain on stone
It leaves scars
They never heal
It’s a reminder
of what is real
Can’t hold it inside
Wish I couldn’t feel

No one wants me here
But it’s where I am
How long before… no one gives a damn?

Sorrow can be a 4 letter word

HOW LONG BEFORE YOUR HELL BECOMES YOUR HOME
I’VE SPENT DAYS MAKING ANGUISH A THRONE

DON’T FALL TO THE DARK

HOW MUCH PAIN CAN YOU HOLD INSIDE
IF YOU DON’T LET IT GO YOU’LL LOSE YOUR MIND

DON’T FALL TO THE DARK
Track Name: A Sad Song
The light fades as the scene changes
camera pans to the girl with the Hope In Her Eyes
As we focus on exasperation
some won't notice it fade… the hope that is...
Was there ever a chance
or was the Romantic tragedy
so busy in the dance no one saw the fragility
He was waiting for his time to end
when it was her clock smashing down.

I’d do anything
Give her back to me

The Girl Stands on the edge looking down.
As blurred lights pass she fades
Are there any lessons in this misery,
Or just pain in the tragedy?
They thought they could save you…
But that arrogance let you down..

I’d do anything
Give her back to me

Covered in pain
I’m caught in the sway
Circle bird of prey
Peck out my eyes
So I can see
Don’t you cry
Track Name: Messenger
The light fades as the scene changes
camera pans to the girl with the Hope In Her Eyes
As we focus on exasperation
some won't notice it fade… the hope that is...
Was there ever a chance
or was the Romantic tragedy
so busy in the dance no one saw the fragility
He was waiting for his time to end
when it was her clock smashing down.

I’d do anything
Give her back to me

The Girl Stands on the edge looking down.
As blurred lights pass she fades
Are there any lessons in this misery,
Or just pain in the tragedy?
They thought they could save you…
But that arrogance let you down..

I’d do anything
Give her back to me

Covered in pain
I’m caught in the sway
Circle bird of prey
Peck out my eyes
So I can see
Don’t you cry
