Perspectives is the personal project of Jamie Sivrais and Callie Wright, who are founding members of A Voice for the Innocent. After I am the Messenger parted ways, Callie and Jamie, who were both in the band, decided to start a project of their own. The concept was to write two separate songs and merge them together into one. For example, ‘2’ contains a full ‘rock/metal’ track and a full electronic track. The concept is fitting, because the band aims to write songs that tell varying perspectives of a situation.

When asked about the meaning of the lyrics, Jamie stated that “The song is primarily about the thoughts that run through your head and the motionless life that depression gives you.” Many people perspectives have experienced depression at some point in their lives, but it’s a problem that seriously plagues victims of sex crimes. So often, victims are crippled by depression and anxiety and feel as though they have nowhere to turn. In fact, A Voice for the Innocent was born from the realization of that problem. Our goal is to be here for those very victims – in an anonymous, accepting and non-judgmental environment. Most of all, we want victims to know that they aren’t alone and that they can find support through the care and help of others.

In order to make people aware of that fact, we decided to release the Voices compilation. Our goal is to spread a message of hope and healing through music. Please help us. You can purchase the compilation, by clicking here. All proceeds go directly towards helping victims of rape and sex abuse. Please listen to the song and let us know what you think about it in the comments or on our Facebook page.

P.S. – If you’ve seen our Youtube video, you may recognize the music.

2 lyrics by Perspectives
This is eating me alive
Consuming all of my insides
I can’t see what’s left of my life
Because the sins of another have left me blinded
I’m surrounded by daunting memories

I’m tied to this bed
I’m tired, I’m tired
Incentive is dead
Desire retired
I can’t go on living with this on my mind
It’s haunting me
It’s haunting me

You discarded my identity
And in turn you made me redefine my personality
You discarded my identity
And in turn you made me redefine my personality

I’m looking for an answer to this mess because
There is a hole in my chest where my heart once was
I’m looking for an answer to this mess because
There is a hole in my chest

I hope you’re living with this
I hope this tears you apart
I hope you’re living with this
It’s haunting me
It’s haunting me

This is eating me alive
Consuming all of my insides
I can’t see what’s left of my life
Because the sins of another have left me blinded
I’m surrounded by daunting memories
