My name is Erik Childs and I have always and will always continue to write music for the people. My lyrics explore the whole spectrum of human emotion, bringing tearful depths as well as goofy, surrealism that'll just make you laugh. Both the good ad the bad side of things shall be encompassed. My ultimate mission is to bring the world to there knees in the deep, existential pondering only to bring them back up to their feet to dance all their worries away. Like my dear friend, Old Gregg, I be trying to milk the funk. Drink that straight up funky shake from outer space.
Anyways, I'm looking for people who are trying to go the distance.
I'm in it to win it. Are you?

Moonlit VulnerabilityWrote this is honor of Opia - When you look into the eyes of another and feel your gaze penetrate theirs while feeling simultaneously vulnerable to their gaze as it penetrates you.
RevolutionThis, my dear friends, is a revolution. The times we find ourselves in where people are awakening and really digesting the truth of the matters at hand. We've seen the wars, we've seen the hate and we've seen the fear of it all. But we wouldn't be able to see these things without the Light. We are swiftly becoming the illuminated ones and we know now that It is about damn time for a major change in the way we get things done. We are finally upon it; this leap in evolution that will bring our world in to brighter, more peaceful days. If you have a moment while you listen, please read these lyrics. I had you in mind while writing them. ;) Lyrics: What am I? Am I the thoughts that I hold in my head or is that the lie? Leading me to believe one day I will die? Awakening a fear in my heart but I don't know why.... Because I am Life. And of all these things I'm sure Life will go on just as it did before I opened my eyes on the morning I was born. I looked into the Light and I felt Love Drop a beat in this heart of gold. I've been looking for a meaning beyond this life and what I'm seeing Because, for all I know, I'm dreaming this illusion Finding patterns in the fabric I clear my thoughts of all the static and my heart from all it's panic and find a solution Because this is a Revolution Breaking the dawn of a Conscious Evolution Paving the path for a Peaceful Resolution This is a Movement You got to stand up You must Believe in the Power of Love and see there's Hope for all of us. What is Truth? If we're all moving in different directions it must be proof That it doesn't lie in our perception We must give up This war we fight with our opinions We've had enough It's time we see the beauty in all of us and ask What is Love? Is it something to hold in your clutch or to let go of Exercise Faith and Trust and just offer it up Make this world a little bit sweeter for all of us I can see into a future of a planet we haven't nurtured It's not a happy ending, you can be sure of it. We've been held down by a system of convoluted constitutions breeding fear, anger and hatred but now it's time for Love's retribution For this is a Revolution Breaking the dawn of a Conscious Evolution Paving the path for a Peaceful Resolution This is a Movement You got to stand up You must Believe in the Power of Love and see there's hope for all of us. I found Myself when I looked upon a stranger I found Truth in that which never falters I found Love in the Heart of the beholder and I found God when I knew there was no other We've been standing on the precipice Of an overwhelming Consciousness The likes of which we've never felt before Where Forgiveness reigns and we break the chains that hold our fragile minds in vein It's time to change and to break past this illusion For this is a Revolution Breaking the dawn of a Conscious Evolution Paving the path for a Peaceful Resolution This is a Movement You got to stand up You must believe in the Power of Love and see there's Hope for all of us.
Let's ForgetHello, Brothers and Sisters! Sending my love your way and reminding you to not take life too darn seriously! Sometimes, even if just for a moment or two, forgetting your worries and troubles may just be the solution! Life is a blessed gift and it's better to forget everything else than to forget that! Lyrics: Mid-October breeze Come around the bend Whisper through the trees Take me for a spin I wish to fall in love again With everything I am and all I want to be To love the place I'm at and to see all I can see I'm alive and breathing after all So let's forget the bills and the pay checks Forget the sorrow, forget the neglect Let's forget that foolish concept Where mankind, in nature, must fall Because, funny enough, we're alive and breathing after all Concrete waterfall, bathe me in your sound Take me someplace far away where peace has been found But nothing persuades me to move Have I found it here, in the midst of all the mess? Did no one ever think to look inside of themselves? The only place where peaceful thoughts are found So let's forget the anger and the sadness Forget the reason why silly things still make as upset Just forget what you think you came here for You'll find when you die that it won't even matter anymore So let's forget Let's forget all the things That we won't take with us when we die And you just might find that the only thing That will never leave your side is the fact that you somehow find yourself alive Mid-October breeze, thank you for your song I'm grateful that I have the breath to sing along

Holding My Breath
Holding My BreathThis song was written as a prayer. I wished to discover my soul mate, someone to love deeply and true. I wrote this song and sang it out to the universe, asking for her to show her face, for I was done holding my breath. But now, I have no one to wait for. She is here. Turn out she was always there. :) Enjoy this song, it means a great deal to me.
