about

Blue Helix is a perfect blend of melodic vocals and powerful rock music, incorporating harmonious violins, layered acoustic and electric guitars, inspiring vocal harmonies, and hopeful lyrics. This rock band does it all, hard rock to alternative with no boundaries on their songwriting abilities.

Tale of Two Halves is the bands third release, which took four years to produce right out of the studio of songwriter and frontman Sami Chohfi. This album is an absolute work of art, and a timeless masterpiece that will transcend generations. The production quality on this album easily matches what you would hear from a multi-million dollar record company, all due to the immense attention to detail, and the pure tenacity that the band displayed in the creation of this album. Tale of Two Halves is a representation that the creation of music exists in the hands of todays modern artists.

Songs "Aliens" and "Carry Me" are fan favorites, these two songs are a new take on your typical love song, these songs leave room for personal interpretation and musically give you a feeling of hope, and strength through loss. Blue Helix does a unique cover of Bob Dylans "Masters of War", taking a simple 60's folk song about war, and transforming it into a modern and powerful Rock masterpiece with layered violins. There are many different styles of rock songs on Tale of Two Halves, one in particular is "Wolves", a personal song about the struggle that many families due to an alcoholic father. This song is very emotionally engaging and vocally one of the most powerful songs on the album.

Track Name: Bullets (explicit)
When I’m up all alone late at night,
I get this feeling needing healing deep inside,
Although I know I must lie,
About these feelings only needed just tonight…
About these feelings only needed just tonight…

Oh you look so good, and you feel all warm,
Showered flesh pressed up against me,
Sweating bullets now, sweating bullets now.

As I push deep inside we won’t talk about anything,
We said it all before well I don’t care, I don’t care,
I don’t wanna know your fucking thoughts,
I’ve come undone, I’ve come undone.

This end result will revelate,
Oh my God I love how it tastes,
You’re like a one hit wonder,
Suck it all suck it up and leave me fonder…
Suck it all suck it up and leave me fonder…

It’s like a needle deep inside the vein,
We lost ourselves filled with dirty shame,
And I know how, you love it!
It’s like a needle deep inside the vein,
We lost ourselves filled with dirty shame,
And I know how, you need it!

Oh you look so good, and you feel all warm,
Showered flesh pressed up against me,
Sweating bullets now, sweating bullets now.

As I push deep inside we won’t talk about anything,
We said it all before well I don’t care, I don’t care,
I don’t wanna know your fucking thoughts,
I’ve come undone, well I’ve come undone,
And I’m up and back again.
Track Name: Escape
I feel as if my life is now coming into stereo,
Listen to a cry that is bleedin’ for the radio.

This was my escape!
Oh am I insane to come play this game?
Oh I must be insane to love all this pain!

Never ever known, never should’a cared,
Faking also scared all my life, will you ever know?
Would you even care? Will you know my name if I died?
If I died?

Maybe I’m ashamed, maybe I’m to blame,
Will I find a way if I try? So weak yet so strong in this fight.
Fight for life!

I feel as if my life is now coming into stereo,
Listen to a cry that is bleedin’ for the radio.

This was my escape!
Oh am I insane to come play this game?
Oh I must be insane to love all this pain!

Never ever known, never should’a cared,
Faking also scared all my life, will you ever know?
Would you even care? Will you know my name if I died?
Track Name: Carry Me
I am just a man with nothing to lose,
Reflection of you in everything I do,
I would sacrifice my entire life,
I will always fight to keep us alive.

If love was a melody, you'd be my song,
To carry me along… on and… on and… on
I don’t have much in this life to give,
You are my reason that I have to live,
That I have to live… You’re my reason to live.

As I look into your eyes, I am mesmerized,
An angel in my life, that’s always by my side,
The silence overwhelms me, when you are not around,
Like a broken record player…
With the needle on the ground!

If love was a melody, you'd be my song,
To carry me along… on and… on and… on
I don’t have much in this life to give,
But you are the reason that I have to live,
That I have to live…

Remember the night we fell in love,
So long ago, we were just only kids,
We traveled long, we've fallen down,
So many times, let’s give this all we can give,
You took my hand as my best friend,
In a lonely world, you taught me how to forgive,
You are the light that guides me home.

If love was a melody you'd be my song,
To carry me along… on and… on and… on
I don’t have much in this life to give,
You are the reason that I have to live,
That I have to live… That I have to live…
You’re my reason to live… You’re my reason to live!
Track Name: Aliens
I feel like we are aliens, dancing in the rain
When we try to disappear, we cannot escape
All in all, I think I found a friend till the end of days
Well I'd call your name,
I'd call your name in the dark and feel your warm embrace

I'll give to you, all my truth,
I'll love you, and never let you go
God you’re beautiful, how I never knew
An alien like you could design a soul
An alien like you could design a soul

Now that we’ve landed here, let’s forget that place
When time and pain were one, one in the same
All in all, I think I found a friend till the end of days
Well I'd call your name…
I'd call you name in the dark and feel your warm embrace

I'll give to you, all my truth,
I'll love you, and never let you go
God you’re beautiful, how I never knew
An alien like you could design a soul
An alien like you, like you

I'll give to you, all my truth,
I'll love you, and never let you go
God you’re beautiful, how I never knew
An alien like you could design a soul
An alien like you could design a soul
Track Name: Masters of War
Come you masters of war, you that build all the guns,
You that build the death planes, you that build all the bombs,
You that hide behind walls, you that hide behind desks,
I just want you to know, I can see through your masks!

You that never done nothing but build to destroy,
You play with my world like it’s your little toy,
You put a gun in my hand and you hide from my eyes,
And then you turn and you run farther when the fast bullets fly!

You fasten all the triggers for the others to fire,
Then you sit back and watch when the death count gets higher,
You hide in your mansion as the young people’s blood,
Flows out of their bodies and is buried in the mud!

You've thrown the worst fear that can ever be hurled,
Fear to bring children into the world,
For threatening my baby, unborn and unnamed,
You ain’t worth the blood that runs in your veins!

And I hope that you die and your death will come soon,
And then I’ll follow your casket on a pale afternoon,
And then I'll watch while your lowered down to your death bed,
And then I’ll stand over your grave till I’m sure that you’re dead!

Till I’m sure that you’re dead, till I’m sure that you’re dead,
I’m sure that you’re dead…
Track Name: Gemini
Tomorrow, or maybe soon, she'll come back in June,
And maybe, I’ve fallen in love with a ghost…

I finally found my cell and I’m so broken hearted,
I miss her taste it’s gone away, she loves another…

Please release me, dismiss me, then shun me,
And maybe you will see that I’m here alone…

I finally found my cell and I’m so broken hearted,
I miss her taste it’s gone away, she loves another…

And as I say this now, I’m now liberated,
This cold, dead, faith.

I finally found my cell and I’m so broken hearted,
I miss her taste it’s gone away, she loves another…

And as I say this now, I’m now liberated,
This cold, dead, faith.
Track Name: Wolves
(Dear God, please keep the demons at bay tonight, were so afraid and so powerless.
Please protect my mother, please protect my sister, Amen)

You don’t have to pray for me, I know now where I’m going,
I’ve seen so many things that I’ve locked away, for far too long…
For far too long.

I’ve seen the devil’s eyes, as I watched my mother cry,
Every night holding tight my, my sister and I, yeah.
Break the door down with his boot, daddy’s coming through.
Is there any of you who’ve lived such fear?
We scared little dear, in a world of hungry wolves.

(Dear God, thank you for the strength you give our mother.
Please continue to help guide her, and protect us from this evil beside us.
With her we’re not afraid, and we know we’re not alone, Amen)

A child’s heart is a fragile thing, any moment it’s broken, it scars,
We’re not alone our, hope is near, there’s an angel here, her love conquers fear…
Love conquers fear.

I only ask you now, is there a hero among you?
Is the courage locked away, locked away, inside of you?
If so, then what, what are you waiting for?
It goes on and on and on…

I’ve seen the devil’s eyes, as I watched my mother cry,
Every night holding tight my, my sister and I, yeah.
Break the door down with his boot, daddy’s coming through.
Is there any of you who’ve lived such fear?
We scared little dear, in a world of hungry wolves.

(Dear God, thank you so much for helping us survive this,
Dear God, I thank you for the person I am today, Amen)
Track Name: Abuse
This is my goodbye to you… You.
It’s obvious there’s nothing left to prove…. To prove.
Lately, I have felt no pain… Pain.
Why I try to please you every night, when all you do is lie?

Well our love was never strong enough,
Abused my heart, I give so much!
Your words will never be enough,
I see right through… you!

Lust is now our only friend… Friend.
In a dream I fill the space within… Within.
Why I tried to appease you every night?
There’s nothing left to fight… for!

Our love was never strong enough,
Abused my heart I give so much!
Your words will never be enough,
I see right through… you! You!

Know that I am like the sun,
I will rise and shine light on the dark!
Track Name: Final Breath
Into you, I commend my spirit,
Deep inside dwells someone new,
Do you recognize that face in the mirror?
Shadows fall now from your grace.

Into you, I am, I am letting go, in my, with my final breath,
I have, I have lost control, Now your mine…
So where were you, when I, when I needed you?
Was it, was it not enough, that I bled for you?

Into you (into you), I release my spirit (I release my spirit),
Lost inside my mind unglued.
Now I understand, the pain I caused you (the pain I caused you),
It flows through me like woken song (like woken song).

Into you, I am, I am letting go, in my, with my final breath
I have, I have lost control, now your mine…
So where were you, when I, when I needed you?
Was it, was it not enough, that I bled for you?
Track Name: I Believe
Remember when I was blind to a love up above
And my soul was a hole for the lies of every man.
Remember when there were times in my life that I wish I would die,
But this hope has not died inside of me.
I believe in what is not seen like our hopes and our dreams.
In these words, I believe… That I am free.

I believe… That all we need in this life is the love that we now share,
with grace and with care, yeah.
I love how we fall and we cry and we crawl just to stand up and take a bow.
Never give up, I never gave up.
I never gave up, I stand strong.

I believe… That all we need in this life is the love that we now share,
with grace and with care, yeah.
I love how we fall and we cry and we crawl just to stand up and take a bow.
Never give up, I never gave up.
I still believe, I still believe, I still believe, I still believe,
I still believe, I still believe, I still believe, I still believe.
