about

Probably a cringe worthy EP, but maybe I'll grow from it and be able to re-do some of these songs later on. I will spare the in-depth analysis for now.

credits

released April 7, 2017

Credits to AJJ for being an influence and comfort, and a great thanks to Car Seat Headrest, debate-ably one of my two favorite bands of all time. Thanks also go to my old band-mates who are living separate lives and to my Girlfriend who likes these songs for some reason, or so she says.

Track Name: Yellow Jacket Song
I don't know, Where to be
When I'm standing 6 feet deep
I've been jaded
past elated
past crumbling in my seat
The lies get shorter, the turret colder
waiting for my care to breath
While I wander, my grades suffer
might as well stick to the sheet

My yellow jacket doesn't keep me warm
even when it's 94
My ideals suffer
when I stay in covers
but why go out in a storm
The rows of windows
speak to new lows
I need something right now
but I'm not sure how

Babe keep me from the pale light I'm leading
and keep me under, cuz I love the water

Rusted stairwell, lead to my hell
only lead where I need to be
Sick of searching
sick of hurting
not willing to compromise what I see
Glance in the blackbox
sing to no-one
nothing will ever try and change

Babe keep me from the pale light I'm leading
and keep me under, cuz I love the water
Track Name: Mountain Situated Roller Coasters
I put my fender in the trunk
because I had somewhere to be
I bought nachos from the story
the kind with bad cheese
she say I focus on:
the most medial things
but she don't see what's important to me
In my first semester of college I kinda
lost connection with my friends
I was sitting in my room waiting for it to end

Mountain situated roller coasters don't take me down
Mountain situated roller coasters goin up

I was walking in the garden not paying attention around me
I was sitting in the pavement trying to study
I left my intuition to persue a degree
and I'be never felt more lonely

(You can't, You can't)

Mountain situated roller coasters don't take me down
(You can't be depressed if you don't have the time)
Mountain situated roller coasters goin up
(You can't be sad if they don't let you try)
Track Name: Heart (A Love Song)
I don't help, When I could
I don't stand up, When I should
I stand up, when things don't even matter

I try so hard to see the light,
but the only ones I see are in your eyes
I sulk around and never get sick
'cuz I'm infected with my gift

to detatch myself from the hurt of others
wallow myself in pity and bother
the people around me I'm too scared to go and defend

and that's why your my heart
you've set apart
when I'm focusing on what words to say
you are moving caring for me
my heart

It's been so long since I picked up a note
for a while I thought
"That's all she wrote"
But while I'm screaming where no-one can hear
You understand like you were there

and that's why your my heart
you've set apart
when I'm focusing on what words to say
you are moving caring for me
my heart

Fake the real thing for me
and hurt me like you mean it
cuz I'd rather you be there then not

Fake the real thing for me
and hurt me like you mean it
cuz I'd rather you be there then not

and that's why your my heart
you've set apart
when I'm focusing on what words to say
you are moving caring for me
my heart
Track Name: Warm Stained Sheets
I was with you
and I, didn't, want to
be with
anybody else

I want to puke
I didn't see quite who
you were
to me

And "I don't know"
really sucks
you must know
where your luck
has gone to
these things you do
make me want to
give up

I'm trying hard
to see your side
I'm trying hard
to be by your side

You're not going to
lose me this time
I need you
so don't even try

Holding on to hope
cuz you won't speak
I'm trying to cope
while underneath
all of this stress
and uncertainty
don't have me guess
when you mean
this much to me

I'm seeing no
other way to go
when you're driving
in these spikes in
to my skin
spread paper thin
in letters written
to my mistakes
and sent
within

Warm, Warm stained Sheets
No I can't eat
When I feel
Nothing.
