about

This is a small collection of the recordings I took during mostly the summer of 2012 before my senior year of high school. These tracks may not completely fit together sonically, but they follow the emotions I was feeling when I was in those moments of time endless and all-encompassing.

Track Name: Trials
Trials troubles tribulations
Such has never been before
When the angels come upon us
Their vows of dread forever more

When the fire comes down from heaven
And the blood shall fill the sea
I'll be carried home by Jesus
And forever with him be
Track Name: Letters to Home
Oh my dear when I met you, and you saw me and I saw you
Oh my dear when I met you, I promised you that I’d stay true
Remember when we ran in the rain through the streets to catch our train
Remember how the sun it came up from the hills through my windowpane

But now I’m fighting a war, one I’ll never give my life for
I’m out fighting a war, far from home
I’d rather see our chewed up slippers and the stain on the floor
When I get home please be like it was before

Oh my dear I’ve walked for days, walked through sand and passed by caves
Oh my love never did I save one drop of water for the end of my days
Someday I’ll come home you’ll see, I’ll be with you you’ll be with me
Some day it’ll be you I see, in place of the colonel and the infantry

But I’m out fighting a war, one I’ll never give my life for
I’m out fighting a war, far from home
I’d rather see your pretty face and a wreath on the door
When I get home please be like it was before

Oh my dear why don’t you write, help me sleep alone at night
Oh my dear why don’t you write, when you don’t I’m filled with fright

I’m done fighting a war, one I never gave my life for
I’m done fighting a war, I’m coming back home
I can’t wait to see you with the little one almost four
When I get home please make it like it was before
Track Name: New York I Love You, But You're Bringing Me Down
New York, I love You but you're bringing me down
New York, I love You but you're bringing me down
Like a rat in a cage pulling minimum wage
New York, I love You but you're bringing me down

New York, you're safer and you're wasting my time
Our records all show you are filthy but fine
But they shuttered your stores when you opened the doors
To the cops who were bored once they'd run out of crime

New York, you're perfect, don't please don't change a thing
Your mild billionaire mayor's now convinced he's a king
So the boring collect - I mean all disrespect
In the neighborhood bars I'd once dreamt I would drink

New York, I love you but you're freaking me out
There's a ton of the twist but we're fresh out of shout
Like a death in the hall that you hear through your wall
New York, I love you but you're freaking me out

New York, I love You but you're bringing me down
New York, I love You but you're bringing me down
Like a death of the heart...Jesus, where do I start
But you're still the one pool where I'd happily drown

And oh.. Take me off your mailing list
For kids that think it still exists
Yes, for those who think it still exists

Maybe I'm wrong
And maybe you're right
Maybe I'm wrong
And maybe you're right
Maybe you're right
Maybe I'm wrong
And just maybe you're right

And Oh..
Maybe mother told you true
And they're always be something there for you
And you'll never be alone

But maybe she's wrong
And maybe I'm right
And just maybe she's wrong

Maybe she's wrong
And maybe I'm right
And if so here's this song
Track Name: Door
I'll help you with the door
Let's not leave him waiting for another second more
Is he a big man is he bigger than us is he bigger than me
I hope not, cause if so I don't think I can do anything at all

Just say hello and how's your day
Give him some time and I am sure he'll be on his way
Take your slip and sign your name on the dotted line
I'm sure he's plenty tame enough to deal with today
Track Name: Denial
I can never leave you
So I guess that's up to you
I just want to stay in denial with you
I just want to stay in denial with you

Denial of the ending
Denial of the impending
Knowing that it won't last at all
But knowing that we have it all at least for now

I wanna waste my afternoons singing with you
I wanna waste my mornings sleeping in with you
I wanna waste my nights in awe of you
I wanna stay in denial with you and not move on

We can do what we always do
We can kiss and watch the same TV shows
We can ignore the rest of our lives together
We can stay in denial together just for now

So it's good that you moved on
Left me bloodied and sobbing and smashed by the road
Took away all of my happy
Left me with just my memories
Because all that I wanna be
Is in denial with somebody again
Track Name: Why Can't You See?
My mouth is a trembling tremor of tombstones
I'm an earthquake afraid to move
My fingertips they scratch and scratch and scratch and scratch at my skin
They can't forgive like I can

Why can't you see
Why can't you see

My blood it glows and flows
Where it ends nobody knows
My blood it burns and burns
It turns my bones to puddles of melted stone
Melted stone melted stone melted stone

Why can't you see
Why can't you see
Why can't you see
Why can't you see

My hair it rakes and rakes and rakes and takes my scalp apart
I cover it with a smile
My skin slips off and I spill out on the floor
I seep for all to see

Why can't you see
Why can't you see
Why can't you see
Why can't you see
