about

Starting out as punk rock in early 2016 and eventually developing into a hybrid of metal and punk, Breakpoint continues to write music and slay the stage.

Comprised of Jaeden Engelland (Drums), Evan Bettcher (Bass/Vox), and Jacob Gray (Guitar/Vox), All members influence coming from a variety of different genres, home to bands like, NOFX, Metallica, Revocation, and Green Day. Breakpoint still endeavours to expand their sound to greater heights, and push the limits of standard punk rock.

"Breakpoint is the line in the sand when you felt you just had to ride the wave" - Beatroute Magazine

Track Name: The Breakpoint
I was born, into this kaleidoscopic mess, and the best thing I've ever had, my world. At least it was at the time. It became dulled, and i was pulled, under the high road. Till i found out that was the plan.
Track Name: For Eyes to See
I happen to think peacefully
Look at my life like you wouldn't yours
Don't know where it went wrong in this world
But somethings got to change

Take pride in what they don't
Beat the system with your hands
I've been working for years
For eyes to see and ears to hear

You know it'll eventually be enough
Mother will take back what she owns
By then we'll be gone for good
Too bad you're all to blind

Take pride in what they don't
Beat the system with your hands
I've been working for years
Take back this land that they call theirs

Take pride in what they don't
Beat the system with your heads
I've been working for years
For eyes to see and ears to hear

gotta go fast
Track Name: Indignant
Let my mind go, I'll take a rest
And now matter how you think of it
I'm left stranded here
In my bed alone, caressed
Thinking happy thoughts
To press on what I used to feel

I'm frightened
Crooked minded
Broken fucking piece of shit, I know I am
Sick starved and spineless
And raging regardless
But who the fuck do I think I am?

Yeah and I know I should get used to it
All I've been promised
And I know I should get used to it
But I'm still pissed

I'm blinded, losing my mind and
Dying just the way I should
It sure feels good
And I'm finding, I need more reminding
Of who I should really blame

Quiet
Not in my environment
This isn't me I can't pretend
And I know I should get used to it
But I'm still silent
Not in my environment
This isn't me I can't pretend
And I know I should get used to it
Get used to it

Quiet not in my environment
This isn't me I can't pretend
And I know I should be used to it
But I'm still pissed
Track Name: Success
Walking on eggshells
Some cryptic writing on the wall
But I can't see straight
Pushing forward and gunna fall

But these thoughts they keep on comin
Sick dissolution's reappear
Thoughts of lies, cries, and suicide
and everything I've ever feared

I just want me for my own
To sit alone and binge
To learn the reasons of my life
And what i could have been

Savin time not goin to school
Savin time not talkin to you
Wishing it wasn't just all my fault
And the prayers come breaking through
But I'm still a fucking asshole
You wouldn't have a clue
But ill never get my life together
For the sake of pleasing you

I just want me for my own
To sit alone and binge
To learn the reasons of my life
And what i could have been
Melancholy universe
Success the deadly sin
Something incredible
Rumored to have been

Yeah!

I just want me for my own
To sit alone and binge
To learn the reasons of my life
And what i could have been
Melancholy universe
Success the deadly sin
Something incredible
Rumored to have been

No!
Track Name: Fingers Crossed
Straight out the bathtub
Shit outta luck
Feeding the fire in my gut
Should I have a shower?
Should I get some food?
And how the fuck did I
Forget my shoes?

Losing all my shit
I don't remember
Half shame half doubt
Blacked out
Hungover
Irresponsible
And I might do it again

Feeling more than hopeless
Feeling more than done
Walking into everyone
How did I lose my wallet?
How did I lose my phone?
And how the fuck did I
Make it home?

Losing all my shit
I don't remember
Half shame half doubt
Blacked out
Hungover
Irresponsible
And I might do it again

I might do it again!
Track Name: Double Take
I take from my life
I take from all of yours
I don't even know
Cause its so hard to show

An unreal imagination
Borrowed from my accursed life
From a life that was once a dream
Pulling back from all that seems
Having dreams that break the rules of reality
A sacred tool
Imagination life or death
Sucking on the chosen crest

A double take

Passion, aggression, misery
A healthy dose of spirituality
Can you see the lush reality
Weathered belongings pass through the hole in me

An unreal imagination
Borrowed from my accursed life
From a life that was once a dream
From a horrifying scheme
Breakin my mind breakin the rules
Breakin from my point of view
Imagination life or death
Sucking on the chosen crest

A double take

Mentally expanded
I'm only learning more
Overlooking everything lead to some conclusion
Now i just wanna see more

Go!
Track Name: Psychoactive
"Psychedelics are illegal not because a loving government is concerned that you may jump out of third story window. Psychedelics are illegal because they dissolve opinion structures, and culturally laid down models of behavior and information processing. They open you up to the possibility that everything you know is wrong." - Terrance McKenna
Track Name: Opaque
Twisted thought
Turning my mind on its head
Turnin up the lights on I'm my mind
In the dead space in my head
Fluidic process
Streaming lining knowledge
Neuorlogic freedom
Through fractal vision

And when the curtain falls
I might be able to explain it to you then
But only when the time comes
You'll just have to wait
Cause this secrets safe with me

What is realization
A carcinogenic web
Of all things wrong and right
Truthful it seems for mine
I'd really like this point of view to stand the test of time
I'm no longer blind

And when the curtain falls
I might be able to explain it to you then
And only when the time comes
And when the curtain falls
Illusion drops behind you then
Subdivided stardom
You'll understand

GUITAR HAHAHAHA
Track Name: Atrocious
Throw another year away
Spaced out talking to myself
I couldn't tell you how it used to feel
Distant just another day
Back here praying to myself
Praying it was real
Was it real

So now that I've seen the end
I'm faced with all I can
Screaming like I am
So now that I've seen the end
Don't think i can begin again
Was I ever worth it
Was I ever wanted
Was he ever wanted

A nightmare, lifeless
Definition of the dead
Atrocious, hopeless

So as I find sanction here
Not in my own home
From what I remember
And now that I'm free
Free from all your complex ways
Can finally help myself
To finally help myself
Help myself

A nightmare, lifeless
Definition of the dead
Atrocious, hopeless
Becoming what I am
Track Name: Fading into Fiction
Stumbling, he's used to it now
Worth a little less than the way he walks
Sensing extinction
Outspoken, art spoken
the last of his kind

Fragility, inability
Succumbing to unhappiness
he's felt this way before
Though unsure of the weight
That of the situation
Self frustration and
Feeling so much more
than he wants to
Functional nervousness
Needing that numbing sensation
A trump of compelling bliss
Fading into fiction

Sensibility a laughable matter
With a surplus of feelings
More than I can bear
Letting loose an scream
Only to be heard by me

Gained, purged and pained
The strain of days
Startling to the mind
Featuring the crave,
fearing any other perception
An only child, an everlasting skin
To choose between lives
Predetermined kid
Forget the situation
A tide of compelling bliss
Fading into fiction
Track Name: Loner
I look at these crowds
Find uselessness in most
When you have friends it seems like you don't
Never finish my sentences they seem pointless
Not like they listen anyways
Destruction is all have today

Is all i have today
all i have today
all i have today
all i have today

Alienate myself on Friday night
Party's and drinks a half real existence
In my mind
In my mind
In my mind
In my mind
In my mind
In my mind

Fuck it
Track Name: Draining
Given life without given a choice
Forced to have an insufficient voice
Some could see me draining
Some could see through the lie
You wouldn't see me rot

So now that you're listening
Swear that Ill get through this
And when I break these sores on my tongue
I'll tell you I'm done

Lost track of things I've done
Wrong or right, a pleasured numb
If I weren't so lonely
If I weren't so scared
I'd be on my own

So now that you're listening
Swear that I get through this
And when I break these sores on my tongue
I'll tell you I'm done
I'll tell you I'm done (we're almost done)

And now that you're listening
Your opinion's inconclusive
And when I break these sores on my tongue
I'll tell you I'm done (song's done)
