about

I guess I should start off by saying originally these songs were much more produced, drum tracks, string arrangements, backup vocals, synths, pianos, etc... But for some reason it just wasn't working out. This batch of songs are raw, and for maybe the first time in my life, I get pretty sad singin 'em. Its rough. So I did what every lame emo would do, I set up one microphone in my room and played all the songs, one take, one track, warts and all. Very minimal overdubs after that, an organ, a piano.. I'll probably never do another album like this because that solo acoustic shit is for the birds. But for some reason it worked here. Its weird hearing myself without a ton of reverb, its weird hearing myself without doubling my vocals, its weird hearing myself. Art is weird, music is weird, but its real, and these songs are real. And when I sing off pitch its real, when my voice cracks, its real. These songs may lack in production value, but I promise I put my whole heart into them. I hope you enjoy.

Track Name: Lazy Lullaby
Heres a lazy lullaby
I write you songs to pass the time
Dear
Are you alright, dear?

You're so cute when you're asleep
But when I peak am I a creep
Dear
Are you all mine, dear?

**
We could both sleep on the couch
I'll make some room and I'll kiss your mouth
I heard your moms been on the fritz
The boys get mean and you wanna dip
But if you need me, I'll be here
If you need me, I'll be here
**

So heres a lazy lullaby
I'll turn your stones, I'll say goodbye
Dear
But I'm still here dear

So every tiny move you make
If you toss and turn awake
Dear
I'll be here, dear

Track Name: Heartbreak Kid
You're a heartbreak kid
All covered in me
And I should set you free

But I never learn
And still I return
Restless while you flee

**
Are we just broken?
Are we just picking at our seams?
With so much unspoken
Its no wonder I love the way you
Love the way that

You think you're not mean
Well I think
You should look up the definition
Of insane
You'll find me
Standing by the competition

'Cause I still love you
**

So you got a new car?
Do you still feel the same?
'Cause you deserve a break
From living in your head
From living in your bed
Just let me take the blame

**
**

(Let me sing you Iron and Wine
Let me love you 'til the end of time
Let me hold on to this
Let me fix this mess
Let me treat you right
Lets get into fights
Kiss you in the middle of the night
Promise to hold you tight
Let me in)
Track Name: Witchybaby
You're my lipstick queen
My winged eyed freak
You flashed me from the stairs
My knees got weak

My have done shit wrong
But nothings changed
I cut my hair and I bathed for days
For days

**
Witchybaby will I see you in hell?
I don't know why I'm still under your spell
My days got short
My nights got long
And I had to sing you one more song
Wichybaby
**

Do you dance in the dark
When you make your marks
Are you over your head?
'Cause I'm over my head

Summon in my brain
And you stay for weeks
I don't know what to think
I don't know what to think
What to think

**
**

And the heart on your arm
How it haunts me
Could you teach me a spell
To get you back
To get you back
To get you back

Track Name: Feel Like Paraphernalia
All in all you seem
A little more perfect without me
A little less sad and less lonely
A little better off in the end

But somethings bugging me
The way you laugh when you pretend to mean
The way you bring your lips to my drink
A little better off in the end

I've never felt
So lost when I've been out with my friends
When the wound starts to mend
You rip it open and open again
It was nice to see ya
But I feel like paraphernalia
It was nice to see ya
But I feel like paraphernalia

Where the hell have you been
I miss the way you wear your lipstick so red, so red
I miss the way my heart beats from my chest, my chest
A little better off in the end

But what remains to be seen
Is how you feel about me, how you feel about anything
Anything
Anything at all
What remains to be seen
Is how you feel about me, how you feel about anything
Anything
Anything at all
A little better off in the end

'Cause I've never felt
More in love with a God damned thing
When the room starts to spin
You pick me open and open again


It was nice to see ya
But I feel like paraphernalia
It was nice to see ya
But I feel like paraphernalia
