about

It took over a year to get all the songs written and recorded for this EP. I'm incredibly proud to have been able to release something that I feel comfortable having others listen to. I struggle when it comes to putting my music out there because I'm incredibly critical of my sound. It's one of the most difficult things I've done in a long time

Track Name: Loose Sole
I want to say I'm sorry
for these sick, sad, situations.
Of doing right and writing wrongs
and writing all of these sad songs.
I just wish that I could say that
I could have it all my way.
But you are so independent
and not sorry when you say,

Go fuck yourself (you're not sorry when you say)
Go fuck yourself

Cause you don't care about the songs.
Or when I'm righting all these wrongs.
You care about the world
and when I am dead and gone.
I will dig my way back out of this shallow grave
And I will scream and I will shout
and I will curse your fucking name.

Go fuck yourself
I'm not sorry when I say
Go fuck yourself

I know that you said
we would have no expectations,
but you, out of this earth
and all of gods creations.
You are my light you are my life
You are all that I did right
you are my strength, you are my fight,
and you are slowly slipping from my sight.
Track Name: Dirty Laundry
Cigarettes and blank cassettes they are recording all my regrets
that I rolled into a song and smoked it while we sang it wrong
Dirty jeans and teenage dreams have followed me into my twenties
wash them up to start again because I wasn't sure quite when

You called me up to take me down when I couldn't be around
write my words with perfect sound and you threw them on the ground
but it's okay it's alright we really don't have to fight
sit around and smoke it through I'm not okay but how are you

I wrote you songs to keep you sane but you couldn't feel the same
the same as me cause I'm crazy maybe it's not you maybe its me
a little lie a lot to lose like we should ever to choose
here and now but that's how life speeds up and then slows right back down

You called me up to take me down when I couldn't be around
write my words with perfect sound and you threw them on the ground
but it's okay it's alright we really don't have to fight
sit around and smoke it through I'm not okay but how are you

I only ask that it's okay that we can take this day by day
cause you are slow and I am slow and our friends don't have to know
that I'm a secret your one regret like cigarettes or blank cassettes
or dirty jeans and teenage dreams that you can't wash and then have clean

You called me up to take me down when I couldn't be around
write my words with perfect sound and you threw them on the ground
but it's okay it's alright we really don't have to fight
sit around and smoke it through I'm not okay but how are you
Track Name: Validation
I have this sick fucking way of feeling validation
I always want to be somewhere far on vacation
Somewhere with snow the rain and the cold
Where my fingers will freeze over and I can watch the replay over and over again

Over again

I'm just so tired of it all standing up just to fall
trying to tolerate all the things about me that I hate
cause all I want to hear you say is hey man everythings gonna be okay

Yeah I seek this validation from my friends who would stick it out to the bitter end
cause who am I to say that my lifestyle is right maybe I'm better off trying to pretend

yeah to pretend

I'm just so tired of it all standing up just to fall
trying to tolerate all the things about me that I hate
cause all I want to hear you say is hey man everythings gonna be okay

it'll be okay

yeah just tell me that it's okay so I can continue to try and do things my way.
cause I know that I will try to survive and see the light that's waiting on the other side

cause I know that the good times they are coming to the end
and I know that it feels so unexpected
cause I appreciate the things you did and what you said
the replays going on and on and I just want to go to bed

I'm just so tired of it all standing up just to fall
trying to tolerate all the things about me that I hate
cause all I want to hear you say is hey man everythings gonna be okay

it'll be okay

I'm just so tired of it all standing up just to fall
trying to tolerate all the things about me that I hate
cause all I want to hear you say is hey man everythings gonna be okay.
Track Name: Rain
My Mother once told me you must compromise
when a girl looks at you with love in her eyes
Cause not everyone lives but everyone dies
and I'm all sewn together and these are the ties

These are the ties that they bind us together no matter the whether
or not what you thought
When I bought you the flowers that you thought I brought
to finish the ending to our love stories plot

Because loves not a story or else it gets boring the the fires roaring and outside it's pouring rain.
Track Name: Blue-Eyed Boy
The blue-eyed boy that I am
I look down at my cracked and broken hands
cause we burnt bridges where we stand
and used that wood to build a leaking dam

cause I just don't give a damn
no I just don't give a damn
no I just don't give a damn at all

Springtime haze brings summer daze
they get lost in so many different ways
and I can still hear what you'd say
why don't you love me? right here where I lay

cause I just don't give a damn
no I just don't give a damn
no I just don't give a damn at all

cause you said
I just don't give a damn about anything I say I am
cause I don't have a plan why cant just hold my hand
cause babe I know it's hard why can't we bring it right back to the start
cause I don't have a heart and it's tearing me apart.

oh I know that you're right
that's why I ask to just close out blinds
cause outside it's just too bright
it's all gonna lead right back to another fight

cause I just don't give a damn
no I just don't give a damn
no I just don't give a damn at all

and I know that there's some distance sitting right there inbetween us
and my iron words they turn right to rust
so I'll move across the country and I know that you'll come see me
just like the end to some bad romance movie

cause you said
I just don't give a damn about anything I say I am
cause I don't have a plan why cant just hold my hand
cause babe I know it's hard why can't we bring it right back to the start
cause I don't have a heart and it's tearing me apart.

cause you said
I just don't give a damn about anything I say I am
cause I don't have a plan why cant just hold my hand
cause babe I know it's hard why can't we bring it right back to the start
