about

NOREiKA Akron, New York

I'm a blue collar guy in a white collar world. I'm a heavy metal shredder with an acoustic guitar. The music I write and play is not of the style I typically listen to. I stopped trying to be specific things, and instead started going where the wind would take me. I'm not bound by genre. I'm free to do what I want, and that's what I'm going to do: Make "MY" music. ... more

Track Name: Ride
I can’t stand the way I feel
I got my hands upon the wheel
Starring through the glass
Watching cars that pass
I can’t stand the way I feel

Trapped inside this cage again
I don’t want to see the day begin
Driving much too slow
Moving with the flow
Trapped inside this cage again

Get up, get out, I can’t hide
I’m not going to stay here trapped inside,
I’ve got to get on out and ride

the road is calling out to me
the summer breeze will set me free.
Stepping through the door
My soul begs for more
the road is calling out to me

Get up, get out, I can’t hide
I’m not going to stay here trapped inside,
I’ve got to get on out and ride

Fire it up, rev it up, and hit the road
Rolling down the highway I can lighten my load
The sun, the sound, the wind in my hair
I’m going to ride.
I’m going to ride.
Fire it up, rev it up, and hit the road
Rolling down the highway I can lighten my load
The sun, the sound, the wind in my hair
I’m going to ride.
I’m going to ride.
I’m going to ride.
Track Name: You're the One
Another day above ground
Walking round in a circle again
I need to hear I love you
It brings me up when I’m feeling down
I struggle with my own mind
To make some sense of all the world
I need you more than ever
My shining light in the dark

Under the stars at midnight
It’s where I want to be
Hand-in-hand in the moonlight
Sets my spirit free

Cause you’re the one that I dream of
When I’m all alone (when I’m all alone)
Take my hand and believe me
When I say you’re the one (when I say you’re the one)
You’re the one

Another day in paradise
It all looks better when you are near
We watch the years go by us
My mind hides the mirror’s lies
The only one that knows me
The only one I want to know.
When I hear I love you
Takes me back to where it all began.

Under the stars at midnight
It’s where I want to be
Hand-in-hand in the moonlight
Sets my spirit free

Cause you’re the one that I dream of
When I’m all alone (when I’m all alone)
Take my hand and believe me
When I say you’re the one (when I say you’re the one)
You’re the one

Cause you’re the one that I dream of
When I’m all alone (when I’m all alone)
Take my hand and believe me
When I say you’re the one (when I say you’re the one)
You’re the one
Cause you’re the one that I dream of
When I’m all alone (when I’m all alone)
Take my hand and believe me
When I say you’re the one (when I say you’re the one)
You’re the one
Track Name: Win or Lose
Where you going to be when it all goes down
And what you going to do when you hit the ground
Stand up, sit down, or step aside
I’m not going miss this ride
Said it before and I’ll say it again
It’s never too late, to get up and begin
Talk the talk and walk the mile
I don’t care about what’s in style

It’s up to you
To win or lose
You can choose
To win or lose

Do it my way or not at all
How can you learn unless you fall
Pick up the pieces; one by one
You got to walk before you can run
The years go by without a sound
Stand up tall, get off the ground
One life to live, to make or break
Go for it all, it’s yours to take

It’s up to you
To win or lose
You can choose
To win or lose

Where you going to be when it all goes down
And what you going to do when you hit the ground
Stand up, sit down, or step aside
I’m not going miss this ride
Said it before and I’ll say it again
It’s never too late, to get up and begin
Talk the talk and walk the mile
I don’t care about what’s in style

It’s up to you
To win or lose
You can choose
To win or lose
Track Name: Rocketship
He’s 5 years old, he’s forever bold, he built a rocket ship
It’s lean and fast and it’s good on gas, he’s going to take a trip
He’s got to go, he can’t be late
Going to clear the pad, he just can’t wait
His helmet on, all systems go
Here comes the fun, 4 3 2 1

Hop right in, throw the switch to begin, on my rocket ship
It sounds like a kitty, and the flames look so pretty, on my rocket ship
It’s Got windows on the side, and a hyper drive, on my rocket ship
I’m blasting into space

Moving slow isn’t part of the show, he’s going to see the stars
Light speed drive makes him feel alive, he’s passing planet Mars
Turn and dive, twist and roll
Pushing the edge, he’s in control
Scanners on, something ahead
Red Alert, 4 3 2 1

Hop right in, throw the switch to begin, on my rocket ship
It sounds like a kitty, and the flames look so pretty, on my rocket ship
It’s Got windows on the side, and a hyper drive, on my rocket ship
I’m blasting into space

Hop right in, throw the switch to begin, on my rocket ship
It sounds like a kitty, and the flames look so pretty, on my rocket ship
It’s Got windows on the side, and a hyper drive, on my rocket ship
I’m blasting into space

Invaders fly from out of the sky, to destroy the Earth
Traveling faster, got his hands on the blaster, going to show his worth
Throttle up, deflectors on,
Weapons armed, fire the gun
Turn and fight, until he’s won
No turning back, 4 3 2 1

Hop right in, throw the switch to begin, on my rocket ship
It sounds like a kitty, and the flames look so pretty, on my rocket ship
It’s Got windows on the side, and a hyper drive, on my rocket ship
I’m blasting into space on my rocket ship
I’m blasting into space on my rocket ship
I’m blasting into space.
