Within you, without you, that's how the river flows Always knowing what to do, lost with only a view What to do and what to say, you always say it'll be OK Out of luck and out of time, losing feeling on the inside How's it feel to be alone? Yet another lifeless drone I'm sorry I'm not like you I'll do nothing else for you I always wondered just how it would be Without you and without me, only space between Hand in hand, life goes by With both minds Within you, without you now
Subside 04:51
Where do we begin My love and my friend Never will life tear us apart Take each moment as it comes Spending each day Side by side Will our happiness subside? Missing you was a clue To how much I cared for you Writing words and singing songs Until each day was gone Spending each day Side by side Will our happiness subside? As my joy turns to fear Without you near My life just fades away Sitting in a room with a view All I've lost is you Now that you're gone, I thought you knew What I'd do for you
Downbeat 03:03
The moons of mars Swallow the sun It seems so far As I call you on the phone
Looking In 05:03
Staring from the outside looking in The moonlight aligned in your eyes Thinking of where we have been And where we're about to be I took your hand in mine And confide in you my deepest fears You said that I'm out of line Suddenly you're too near Sometimes the seasons change too fast I never thought this wouldn't last Headlights lead to where I want to go With the clock ticking way too slow As I'm leaving quickly as I can The fiction ruled as best it could Sunlight peers over the edge of the land This new day begins as it should
Delusion 06:35
Alone here again, my friend Without you, this might be the end You know my mind has gone astray To find a way to make you stay You left here, and now you're gone And I'm not having too much fun There must be a way But the sky is still grey Losing sleep inside Where can I hide? Looking to the sky Thoughts of what got me so high Where are you going? Don't leave me behind Down the river flowing We're running out of time
Cessation 03:41
I know that you're running far away But the words on my lips are trying to say How much you mean to me And inside, my heart screams I'm trying to get over you But I can't live without you Even though my soul rings true I'm moving on from you The things that you've said Are playing through my head I can't believe this is real All of this pain that I feel What makes you think That you're better than me? Now that I'm done with you The sky returned to blue
Realistic 06:44
Green eyes and summer skies Light the path through Earth You and I, we wonder why What are we to do? It's raining there Why should I care? There's nothing I can do Except forget you Many ties and black lies Insist on defeat Why should I try to fly When all I do is drown? Living life to waste away Living life to throw away Living life to fade away Living life like there's no today
Anoesis 07:19
Confusion settles in With you and I, you're gonna win Darkness takes over our minds Heavy lies lay foundation inside Here we go again Another heartache again Here we both pretend That we weren't meant for the end Awake again at 3 am My mind's alive with you to defend A trial of tears to waste away Subtle eyes are your disguise


Collecting Space began as a solo home studio project by myself at my childhood home in Granville, OH. I started writing music in 2006, and really got into recording in 2008. I played on and off with friends and bands up until 2008 as well. I started teaching myself how to play keyboards to add to my songs, and began completing full demos of the songs that made it onto ‘Subside’.

Early in 2010, Vince and I met through our mutual appreciation of a few progressive rock bands via an online posting, and instantly hit things off. We started working on arrangements of my demos, and brought in my friend Preston Tamkin on keyboards to recreate the songs for live performance. Fred Holtzclaw came into the fold on bass guitar from a previous metal project that we worked on. Collecting Space started playing live shows in the summer of 2011, and we began recording final tracks during October and November of 2011. The first record, entitled 'Subside', was released on December 20th, 2011.

Kaleb Burkhart for his friendship and overall inspiration, Cameron Porter, Logan Wills, Nathan Moser, Alex Trimpe, Leah Storrs, Emily Butler, Brianne Shulze, Sarah Deford, and all the people that have helped shape who I am today.
