about

This is EP was written recorded over the course of 2014. It was our way of dealing with the shifting relationships, adaptation to college life, and dealing with all of the little obstacles life throws at you when you're a teenager.

Physical copies of the CD will be available at shows along with stickers.

Thank you to everyone for your continued support, and we hope to see you at a show soon.

Track Name: Fall Asleep
Every time I turn a corner, you are a block away.
That's why I can't be with you everyday.
Now, I'm trying [trying] to get better at letting you know when I'll be home.
But don't hold me to anything.

Its getting late, and I should really get you home before your dad knows were alone but when you wake, please don't forget me.

Look me right between my eyes with that glare that shows demise.
But, tell me that I'm everything you've ever needed.

Because the road, is just to lonely. x2

It's getting late, and I should really get you home before your dad knows were alone, but if you can't fall asleep, I'll be right here.

If you can't fall asleep, I'll be right here.
Anytime you need me, anytime you want me.
I'll be right here.
Track Name: Flesh & Bone
I told you about all of things that haunt my dreams
The morning comes and I still feel like I'm asleep
Stuck with this on an ocean that never changes
No matter how hard I try, I can never erase this

These days go on but time stands still
Bury the past where it belongs
In every line of every song
And all we are is flesh and bone
Break the surface, I need to know what lays beneath

And you know me
Falling in holes along the way
I need an escape
I wish that things would change
Reflections show who I am
Reminders of what I'll never be

These days go on but time stands still
Bury the past where it belongs
In every line of every song
And all we are is flesh and bone
Break the surface, I need to know what lays beneath

Where were you when I got carried away
With breaking the bones in both my hands?
I can't hold on to anything
I'm losing sleep, I'm losing friends
I need you now, I need to know where you are
Track Name: Carve
Why do I keep letting myself go?
I guess I'm just too hopeful and my mind can never take it slow.
It only took four days for me never forget your face;
and I haven't seen you since.

Why do I keep letting myself go?
I guess I'm just too hopeful and my mind can never take it slow.
It only takes for days, for you to never forget her face.

Well, you really fooled me this time,
and now you're carved into a corner of my mind. x2

I'm feeling like an ant under a magnifying glass in the heat of the summer, and you're the one whose been burning me; and all I wanted to do was find the queen.
All I'm seeing are constant reminders that I may never find her.

Well, you really fooled me this time, and now you're carved into a corner of my mind. x2

Where are you?
Where are you? x2
Track Name: Sunrise (Without You)
You call it home because it's right where you think you belong
Meanwhile, I'm in my basement, strumming minor chords to the beat of your heart
And steady as a sinking ship; I watched you drown

"Let's leave this place," was all you said
But we grew up and you never left
Because you found safety in all the things that you used to hate

1-2-3-4!

I think about it all the time
In a world like this it's hard to ever feel alright
And I guess I'm going nowhere
If you never try, you'll never know;
If you never die, you won't let go
Some things don't change
Some things will never be the same

"Let's runaway," was all you said
But we grew up and you never left
I still feel it in my bones
Can you feel it? Did you ever feel it?

The sunrise over the valley
And everything's alright here
Without you. (without you)
These color-coded memories to separate all of the things that I never wanna think about again.
Track Name: One Hand
Well you know I've been counting my blessings on one hand.
Because that is all it takes now a days. One hand x2

Oh.

It's been a while since I've felt this way.
Everything's alright, theres nothing to say.
That is all that drifts off of your pallet; your dirty pallet.

I'm suffocating. But, I love the air that I have left.
So I'mma take each breathe so slow.
Yeah, take each breath so slow.
