“Dead or Alive” expresses rapper J. Loree’s dismay at fighting internal demons while portraying an unfaltering facade to the people in his life. The track blends hip-hop with escalating rock elements and culminates in a powerful crescendo of guitar and rap.
James Deacon’s “HERO aka Rich” is an ode to heroes lost and heroes created. His powerful vocals demand the center of the track, inserting the listener into a war of internal and external conflicts as he battles with changing his perceptions in the aftermath of his world’s desolation.
