"Rest Easy" was crafted around the concept of living life with eternal peace and steadfast love throughout all its trials and turmoils, due to the assurance of grace, glory, and incomparable company of Jesus Christ, who Sam Ock believes and tries to proclaim as the way, the truth, and the life. The hope for this album is to provide a place where pain and peace are able to have honest dialogue within the listener's introspection, gently prodding one's beliefs and hopefully pointing out the distinction within Sam's music which constantly tries to direct an ear to Whom he believes is the source of inspiration, love, joy, peace, and goodness itself.

May this EP be your study buddy, commute crooner, night cap, morning songbird, or whatever else you may find it to be.

In Him, no matter who, what, where, when, or why, we can assuredly Rest Easy.

Matthew 11:25-30

Track Name: Small
**I’m small, but You are greater than me
Deeper than what I see is Your love
I’ll wait to see Your love bring us peace

Father God, are You there?
Injustice around makes it seem like You don’t care...
But I know, still You are good
So I’ll sing summer’s song
That through all the heat, I still know it won’t be long
‘Til autumn comes around


“Oh my child...don’t you see,
that through my own blood, I gave you eternity
with me in paradise?”

*You’re small, and I AM greater than you
Deeper than what you do, for I’m LOVE
So wait to see my love bring you peace

Track Name: Rest Easy
i know that i'm not alone, i see the bags/ under everyone's eyes, like a bunch of white flags/
ready to just give up, had just about enough/ why is living so though, why did i choose to drink this cup?/
this love that i'm searching everyday for/ from above, hear me uttering a "save LORD!"/
'cause my body and my spirit and my crowns/ every single thing seems heavy on my brow/
and i sweat it, i want to shed it/ i want to go back in time and make edits/
i carry scars on my heart, but i just let it/ fester into anger, impatience imbedded/
but i read it in the Good Book, it said/ come to me all who are weary and i will give rest/
so i believe that my burdens will leave me/ one day, but 'til then, i'll rest easy

**oh, if i can't see what's in front of me
i'll take Your hand and i'll rest easy

i wonder how many songs use the same progression as this/
i wonder how many times lovers were betrayed with a kiss/
a simple sentiment supersedes sentience and single souls sense the Supernatural's salience/
and daily i'm affected by my weary mind/ many times i forget that love came down forgave my crimes/
i believe that You are my Shepherd tried and true/ when i can't see in front of me i put my trust in You/
during the winter dark and cold and these summer nights/
i'll lay my burdens on the One who took my every plight/
and gave me wings so i could see the sky and take flight/
and perspectives from above show me my worries are trite/
i gaze upon the colors of the deep blue/ the burning warm glow of the sunset's truth/
i let the air fill my lungs, and breathe out, and for a moment rest easy, singing out


if only it were easy to believe that in Your hands lies my security
but still i choose to persevere and try for the Author and Perfector of my life

Track Name: All I Need (Rollercoaster Part II)
Oh, I see the men of old...see the wars they fought, and the stories they told
Oh I want a tale of romance too, of seeking adventure and finding truth
I want to see the world and all its tales
The horrors and beauties, the victories and “fails”
But oh, with You here, how futile and grey
Is everything that isn’t You, I’ll always say:

**You are all I need, and I will sing it proudly
You are all I need, and I will sing it true
You are all I need, and I this whole world around me
Is not what I need, ‘cause LORD it isn’t YOU!

I apologize to everyone who thought of me
as an inspirational being, ‘cause I ain’t what you see!
I’m just a little child, knowing that I’m reconciled
I’m unashamed of Christ and not afraid to say it loud!
Timeless, tale of every boy and every girl,
Everyone is lovesick, searching for the brazen pearl
that will fill the hole in their hearts,
something that won’t fail and won’t tear lives apart...
Ladies and gentle-warriors of the new world
I come emphatic to see the glories unfurl
Call me whatever you want, I prefer “lovestruck”
with the Artist who left not the world untouched!
I want to shine the light even in my darkest days
I want to know LOVE and know for what I’m really made
and with my future wife, to the One who made me
True Romance together we’ll sing daily:


I’ll never see the world and all its tales
The horrors and beauties, the victories and “fails”
But oh, with You here, how futile and grey
Is everything that isn’t You, with You right here I’ll stay!

Track Name: New Sights ft. Gowe, J. Han, & Manifest
**Life goes on
But it own't be long
'til you and me
find new sights to see

[Sam Ock]
Mr. Sandman, give me a dream
of my life in harmony, living out peace
but I know in reality, guided by my faculties,
there is but tragedy of apathy inside of me...
There's a battle within while I'm livin'
to reconcile my passion and purpose with what I'm given
'cause I'm compelled to follow the man Christ,
but why does life seem so much better in short sight?
If only they knew who the real "me" was...
walkin' a thin line of hypocrisy and love
I'm being ambiguous, so I'll say it out straight,
"LORD, I want to live out the things that You say!"
For You paid in blood for the things I deserved
and from what I've seen, You're pretty true to Your WORD, so...
I want to set a standard of light shinin'
'cause life goes on in HIS good timin'

Ockie with another one.
awkward when the walk is not a one-on-one
how can I be positive He's gonna come
sloppy when I'm living straight,
stop me when I'm sinning, wait, kidding
ain't feeling like I'll ever change so what's the point?
a true believer. but when he slips then who believes him?
and under pressure you can see a person's true allegiance
the cost of spitting how I really feel
i can say that my fear that I'll offend you's my achilles' heel
my feet are planted on the rock like my first name
still i sway back and forth during hurricanes
the fight is hard cuz life is hard and doubt raises
but to say you lost your foundation's outrageous
how great He is, that He enters in our radius
it's a blessing and it's something that we'd hate to miss
love unconditional, until the day we fade to dust
a lot of you still to hate to trust. but we got to pray because..


[J. Han]
When I'm caught in the middle of wiggling over to the tree
I often twiddle and fiddle the blame away from me.
Tryna keep the reprimanding to a minimum,
pushing it to the side like it's a complicated riddle, yo.
I skirt the issue, cover myself with garments
of fig leaves; upon it, man, I simply put some garnish on
cause I hear the voices calling me a varmint,
and the only way to rid 'em is to try to clean the tarnish off.
Then I recalled that I had better attire.
A marvelous robe drooping on a metal wire
given to me; only fit for the King,
made and tailored for my mold, but chose to sling it aside.
I'm tryna live-up my life; the flesh eating me alive though
pride and humility never see eye-to-eye, bro
Want to live-out what you intended -- to be a sign post
to Christ who's given power to my soul without a nine-volt!

When I write a sixteen I mix my dreams with a beat
that's a portion of reality and a passion to me
But once the competition sets and I'm feeling another threat
I have a tendency to vent through expressions like I'm the best
But what's the point of having pride rule the best of me?
What's the point of a self-destructive destiny?
Especially when I was crafted with a mission
To be focused on the lost now I'm tossing and turning because I'm sleeping?
And the numbers can be really quite deceiving
Diving in the deep-end of a million plus views
Take another cruise into the reason of existence
You can take all of my music just move me by your presence
I don't care about 'the best' that's just pride talking
What I care about is you God in my mind often
If that's a bass drum with a touch of the keys
Then I will drive until the E blinks and ride to the beat

Track Name: Peaceful & Lovely
Take me Home, to a place I’ve always known
Peaceful and lovely, I’m not alone.
Track Name: Good Morning, Good Evening
Hey, good morning, how are you?
Have you seen the morning dew?
May it will give me peace of mind...

Oh, good evening, how are you?
I will sing of mercy new!
Won’t you stay with me, we’ll make the time
