about

NOTICE: our drummer left the band in the middle of recording this album. It is currently unfinished, and plans to finish up the last couple of tracks fell through when we decided to break up about a year later. The last track released here is the mix from the physical demo of the album we put out shortly before re-mixing/-releasing the pre-order tracks online. Thank you all for the patience, understanding, and support you've displayed throughout the past few years.

Cresca means to grow, and evolve. This album seeks to embody that, with sounds and ideas evolving around every corner, filling the space to a point that it will take repeated listens to decipher exactly what's happening.
Ironically though, we all seek to grow because that we are not happy with who we are, or where we are now. This album tries to explore the meaning of making our way forward into adulthood with what little we have now, and with all the baggage that our parents and society at large has left us with.
Growth is determined by whether or not you can move past your trauma and insecurities, but first, you must submit before, and accept them.

Track Name: Wither/Explode
Played fine, learned to rise
Don't mind me, just thrive

I'm not sure whether to
Wither or explode

Revived with newfound spine
To ascend and strive

I'm not sure whether to
Wither or explode
Track Name: Marie
She's keeping me grounded
Still I try
To keep my eyes ahead
Don't look back

I want to drown it out
But he's right behind me

In my room alone again
Still I try
To recall what she taught me
Take control

I want to drown it out
But I feel him there, beside me
ahhhh, ah ahhhh, ah ahhhh, ah ahhhh
ahhhh, ah ahhhh, ah ahhhh, ahhhhhhh, ahh

(Instrumental)

Only when alone
I lose it

Why when alone
Do I lose it?

(Instrumental)

Only when alone
I lose it

Why when alone,
do I lose it?
Track Name: Rebirth
Ignorance abound here
Call us misguided
Say it's for my own good
Then give me a warning

Nature's a heresy
Life choices just ain't healthy
Say it's for my own good
Then give me a warning

This is our rebirth, so find your worth (x3)
Today's our rebirth, so find your worth

Empathy, apathy
It's the same shit to me
I'm trying to do what's right here
'Cause I think you need saving

Ignorance abound here
Call us misguided
Say it's for my own good
Then give me a warning

This is our rebirth, so find your worth (x3)
Today's our rebirth, so find your worth

I can't become quiet
When I'm not speaking
I can't become silent
When I'm not speaking
Track Name: Severant
If I'm gunned down by the ghost of the one
Who they all say has learned to love
She won't come at me, at least not anymore
And I know this, but that ghost is adored

She won't come at me, at least not anymore
And I know this, but my abuser's adored

Brain gone stale, left too dazed for will to come to fruition
And her will, it prevails and leaves me ripe for picking
Brain gone stale, her will prevails, leaves me ripe for picking
And my will, it stops and starts in the depths of my heart

But wait, I'm still here
It's fate to have held you all so dear
But wait, we're here
Still here

If I'm burned down by the fire of the one
Who I know now has had his fun
He knows what burns me, at least most of the time
Mistakes do happen, and I'm livin' the life

Brain gone stale, left too dazed for will to come to fruition
And his will, it slowly finds its way to my heart

Aahh...

But wait, I'm still here
It's fate to have held you all so dear
So dear

I'm still here

I'm still here
And I come first
Track Name: The Walls Are White
Left alone in my youngest days
An old man meant to keep me safe
But one day he woke me up instead

And so I asked him, what do you want from me?
But no response, sir, what do you want from me?
Oh he was ruthless, what do you want from me, do you want from me, do you want?

The walls are white, I've been stuck inside
All my life
They've got the devil's eyes, and I don't know why
But it rhymes

Left alone at my dumbest age
A girl who'd never learned restraint
Next thing I knew, she'd caught me in her head

And so I asked her, what do you want from me?
But no boundaries, bitch, what do you want from me?
Oh she was reckless, what do you want from me, do you want from me, do you want?

The walls are white, I've been stuck inside
All my life
There's no place left to hide, they've both got devil's eyes
'Cause it rhymes

Ooh...

The years are passing me by, the fear is kicking in
I've never been like the rest, who all just wanted skin
See, I'm afraid of the bed, twice was I forced in it
And when you see me again, walls will be caving in

One day I recall the eyes, after a decade
A battered mind in the making just to wear away
Too sensitive to make sense of simple child's play
World shaken at three-years-old, tell me what's left to gain

But there's sight of the beloved, it has yet to fade
And I'm not letting it go, it's here I want to stay
I've never known warmth like this, feels like I might erupt
But if it's here I'll remain, then I won't give it up
Track Name: Love (demo)
Thought I'd fade
Stood on the edge
But there's a light
She's mine, she guides me

Now I stand
And when I fall, I can walk again
"Remember this,
You've not yet lost your innocence"

Came to life
And I can see
There's hope again
She's lead me here

Now I stand
And when I fall, I can walk again
"Remember this,
You've not yet lost your innocence"

Dove straight into the middle, and
I didn't want to reach the end
The worst is yet to come, my dear,
So can you show me how to cope?
The worst is yet to come, I fear,
So can you help me walk again?
The worst is yet to come, I know,
So help me crush these liar's bones
