The Monarch Project is an emblem of Hamilton's musical promise today. With influences rooted in 90s Stadium Rock groups, the band’s true magic comes from an honesty which recalls the innocent poprock of the 60s era.

Track Name: A Better Part Of You
Have you given it all,
to see the dream
Or given it up,
to be set free?
Lay it all on the line
But be where you are
'cause you'll be there in time.

It's all in your eyes
I've taken the ride to see
A better part of you
(in your eyes, its true)

Are you living at all
or are your dreams
Giving you all
that you wanted to see?
Change the frame of your mind
But be where you are
'cause you'll be there in time
Track Name: Desire
I've been asleep,
for all of what I know as dying
And in the dream,
I seem to fail at all I try...
but I try

As I awake,
each day my eyes grow slightly wider
They let me see,
the roads that drive to my desire

Desire, it's inside her.
Desire, let the thought of her inspire.

But as you gaze into your mind
through an unseen eye
do you let it redefine her?
Could you set your soul on fire
as you walk the line
to suffer for desire?
