A B O U T M E / W E L C O M E T O A U G U S T W I L L D E C A Y . C O M

I have, for as long as I can remember, have had a creative / artistic side that needed to get out.  Having experienced many things in my life which caused me to gain a rather different perspective on things than my peers I began to express myself through poetry.  In the beginning there were three of us going by the name of Disobedience, we were young, angry (especially me) and determined to make any sort of music we could on that dirt floor in the basement practice area we jammed in.

After some time things just kind of tapered off we got jobs, finished school and kind of moved on with life.  However I continued to create and develop my style as a solo artist going first under the name of King9ine.  This name was taken up by another band calling themselves King Nine (which I also used this variant too long ago) but just as well I needed to start a new chapter in my life after a period of very tough emotional times which came to a head in August 2013.

I was in a slump, possibly the lowest point in my life and I sat down and wrote a poem called August Will Decay.  That is how I felt, that during that terrible month of August I would decay. (My emotional state anyway) And I guess to a certain extent it did.  I was forever changed by the events that followed and I have come to realize that I will only ever have this one life to live and with that life I can choose to sit around writing sad poems which would turn into the occasional song or I can really try and put some effort into showing the world who I am, what I am made of, what I have been through, my hopes, thoughts, beliefs, and failures through music which I hope some people can relate to.

I am living currently in this new chapter of my life where I have decided not only will I make this effort to show people my music but I will make it an obsession to achieve.  I have been sitting on dozens of song for the last 15 years that I have unearthed and polished up the best I can and I have released some EP’s which showcase some old songs but also some new songs.

I am going to keep making my heart speak through music and this website is just another effort in this chapter in my life to make my voice heard.  And while I could never thank the people in my life that have caused me endless pain I can at least say that they have inspired me.  Driven me.  And pushed me to further succeed beyond, hopefully what I even think is possible.

August Will Decay is an honest expression of raw emotion good bad or indifferent we all have emotions I am not afraid to voice mine.

Cold World
By: Shawn D. Petrie (11-16-1995)


--AWD LIGHTNING PROMO JPEG 600


It’s a cold, cold world
When you wait for the end
And the feelings of emptiness
Take over again

My soul spins endlessly
In a circle of death
Kept in motion by
The times spent in the dark

If I had me one wish
I would make the world change
I would bundle up my problems
And never face them again

Then it wouldn’t be so hard
For me to wake up each day
And watch the sands of time
As they slip slowly away

When I’m inside my head
And I’m searching for the door
And I’m finding things out
That I never knew before

Things I can’t forget
And some things I regret
Some of this place I still know so well
This may be the source of my hell

Sink into the black, you’re never coming back
The source of all evil lies within
Run but can’t hide, you’re in for a wild ride
And you’re never coming back

The truth is that you’re blind
And you cannot escape your mind
Your life is spent wasted inside this place
And your ruin will result in the end

DYING INSIDE

I WILL CLOSE THE SHUTTERS
BECAUSE I CAN’T LET YOU SEE ME CRY
WITH ALL OF THIS WAITING AND WONDERING
I AM DYING INSIDE

I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT I WANT
AND I KNOW THAT THING IS YOU
I HOPE YOU FEEL THE SAME AS ME
AND FIND YOUR HEART IS TRUE

TWO DAYS HAVE PASSED
MY GIRLFRIEND YOU WERE FOR A DAY
BUT YOU CANNOT REMEMBER THE PROMISE OF LOVE
SO YOU TOOK IT ALL AWAY

I SOON FOUND OUT THAT ALL THE LIES
OUT WEIGHED THE FEELINGS YOU HAD
WHILE YOU ONLY TOYED WITH MY HEART
YOU STILL SEEMED TO TAKE AWAY THE BAD

AND I FOUND OUT THAT THROUGH THE MESS
WHAT YOU TOLD ME WAS A LIE
YOU NEVER WANTED TO BE WITH ME
YOU LEFT ME IN PAIN TO CRY

I TRIED MY BEST TO MAKE IT WORK
I WANTED IT TO BE SO REAL
BUT ONE THING I WILL SLOWLY LEARN
BLOCKS OF ICE JUST CANNOT FEEL

TO YOU I AM JUST ANOTHER GUY
AND THE LINE IS OUT THE DOOR
BUT YOU KEPT ME HANGING ON AND STILL
WANTING TO COME BACK FOR MORE

NOTHING CAN EVER MAKE YOU KNOW
JUST HOW YOU MADE ME FEEL
OUR LOVE BEGAN AND STARTED TO GROW
BUT WHAT IS LEFT IS PAIN SO REAL

EVENTUALLY I , LIKE I ALWAYS DO
WILL MOVE ON TO BE HURT AGAIN
IT IS A VICIOUS CYCLE OF PAIN I AM GIVEN
AND I WISH MY LIFE WOULD JUST END

YOU MUST HAVE BEEN SHOCKED
WHEN I WOULD NOT LET GO, AS I BEGAN TO CRY
YOU HAVE LEFT ME A COLDER PERSON
SLOWLY AND PAINFULLY DYING INSIDE

Accepted

--AWD CENTERED TRACKS WITH PROMO JPEG 600


accepted into the arms of strangers
only to fear the loss and danger
that I have felt so many times
so I punish the new for others crimes

I miss the signs when someone cares
I push and shove till they aren’t there
maybe I dont appreciate
the things I have and it’s too late

my aching hands can build up walls
but my aching heart can’t hear the calls
because with so many in my phone
I find myself still all Alone

to have it all or so they say
can be so easily stripped away
can be so easily forgotten and lost
can exceed the price to find the cost

like an insignificant child I wander
I look around in tears I wonder
will the rest of my life, I suffer and ponder
till my broken soul is driven asunder

there’s a clock that’s always ticking
there are memories that are always sticking
I want to remove my crazy mind
and learn to see when folks are kind

but I only see the pain they may cause
so I write up a contract with a hidden Clause
that no matter what I’ll fuck it up
and look at that half empty lonely cup

life is so hard too many feelings
too many dealings
too many times I’ve spent wondering why
sitting alone in sadness I cry

but I’ve grown enough to see
that the biggest problem in my life is me
and although I fear the worst in others
by greatest enemy I’ll always be

although I’ve been rejected
the source of the problem has been detected
in the cracked mirror my true self reflected
and I’ll die alone this much I’ve accepted
