about

THENVOY Nashville, Tennessee

Singer/songwriter Jeremy Hicks was told to find a new profession after a cancerous tumor in his chest left one of his vocal chords paralyzed. Still he began to write new songs in attempt to cope with his emotional state. Over time, however, a raw, cutting voice came out of him that would give life to those songs. THENVOY is the moniker in which he shares them to aid in consolation. ... more

Track Name: Colors as of Wine
I missed my daughter’s first steps waiting for her to run

I wasted rain on my cheeks wishing for the sun

I’m just striving for something that can’t be caught

I’m stuck in a school and I can’t be taught

Cursing my feet as I wish for wings

You ask me to dance but I want to sing

Looking past the gold leaves as they fall

Dreaming of the sunset that I saw (colors as of wine)

I’m stomping the precious heart I stole

As I reach for a new hand to hold

All my life I was chasing a truth that was chasing me

And as reached for what wasn’t there I finally came to see what

was there

I wont strive for nothing that wont be caught

I can’t sit in a school where I can’t be taught

I will run with my feet and forget those wings

And I’ll dance with you as I try to sing
Track Name: Broken Man's Song
Heal my body heal my soul

This bitterness is getting old

My feet are heavy my thoughts are weak

But I’ll stumble to the streams where my heart can drink

Cuz it’s as cold as the tears down my face

From which it flows to the pity of my weakest state

So I’ll hold to the comfort of my pain

Till I’m forced to run this race again

I hear the voice of a broken man’s song

His wispy words of a desolate wood

They’re carrying me and now growing strong

Like a garden that grows from ashes and soot

Now I can see the diamond in the dirt

From where it’s shining through the broken glass and hurt

And the silver lining is creeping into view

Till the sun blinds my cynical eyes

So my bitterness has blossomed into sweet

Crushing my darkest dreams and flooding them with hope and peace

And the crackling ice is melting off my heart

Shedding sorrow tears but bleeding tears of joy

What song will you sing when your soul gets free
Track Name: Fire Against Your Chest
I cried in the arms of your comfort

Pulling from the pain in my past

The tears that fell on the open wounds

Became the seal for them to heal

My senses numb to all emotion

But screaming to feel something that will fill

The void between who I am and what I’ve done

To erase this urge I have to kill

I’m trying to find something that’s worth sticking around for

And I’m thinking that I might throw on

Some flesh-flavored fuel for the fire

But the rains will come and quench my thirst

So why should I ever deserve the flame

But you can’t carry fire against your chest

And your clothes not be burned
Track Name: Vagrant
There stands a man with a wounded heart who wasn’t left with

scars on his skin

He bears the marks of the pain he felt from the cards that dealt

his lonely life

But he doesn’t come to find where the truth resides

But to curse and cry just to feel alive

He cracks the door to his vagrant mind for the sun to shine

through the wind

The clouds are thick and the dust is stirred where no hope

deferred him to see

That he doesn’t have to fight all the pain inside

Save the suicidal thoughts again

Can you rip out this dagger from my chiseled chest

Or untie the knot in my stomach

Cuz I know the truth that lies in these brittle bones

And it burns like fire
