    Just a crappy homemade CD, price is pretty much to cover printing and sending it out, not for profit. Won't be amazing quality cover wise, as I will most likely print it on paper.

about

My first EP written over the past year or so, this is for everyone who's helped me out during that time. All the songs are pretty personal to me, so I hope you like them.

Track Name: Burn, Please
Verse 1:
And I am hiding, because I'm always in the dark
I am running because even although truth isn't too bad it's still too much
I know that there is no rush, but there are tears in my eyes
I know that I can not rise, I can not rise, let them size me up
Let me cut, let me cut these strings that keep me tied down, or my wrists
This situation, this situation it cannot be fixed

Chorus:
And I am the loser, I am the fighter
Now let me burn please
Set this house on fire, house on fire
With me inside
And I am the loser, I am the fighter
Now let me burn please
Set this house on fire, house on fire
With me inside

Verse 2:
I am no better than you, my heart it breaks in two
Your sheets
My heart is on my sleeve, why don't you tear it off please
And we were fighting in the hallway
We were fighting in the stairs
And I remember the way your hair looked
Over your tears
And I am not a loser
I am just a user
And I am not a loser
I am just a user
And I am not a loser
I am just a user
And denial, denial is my best friend

Chorus
Track Name: Diving & Sinking
Verse 1:
So I ran away
Cause I've got nothing left to say
And these words will be the last words
My words will be the last words tonight
So turn the music up
Drown these thoughts out
While I cut
At every shred of self respect
I held

Chorus:
And these are the lies that I will tell my children
That I was happy and I was sane
And these are the stories I will tell my children
That everything stayed the same
And these are the ways I will protect my children
From becoming anything like me
But I have no oxygen left
Yeh, I have no oxygen left

Verse 2:
So can you tell me stories
Of what its like tomorrow
Can you tell me stories
Of what its like to die
Because I dived
Into a big swimming pool
And I forgot that I didn't know how to swim

Chorus

Verse 3:
So leave me by the roadside
So I can decide whether to live or die
And leave me by the roadside
You know what I prefer, you know what I prefer
Track Name: Stories & Scars
Verse 1:
I need to do better
With all this time
Oh, I need to do better
Or you'll leave me behind
-
And I am so happy to waste potential
But my mental state has been working among the nettles
So I am sorry if I offend you
But I do not choose
Who I do, and do not love

Chorus:
And these are just stories
Like these are just scars
And these are just stories
They really don't matter much
So burn the fear out of my eyes
Like you burnt the hope out too

Verse 2:
I've always been a masochist at heart
So why don't you set me down, let me down again?
I am beginning to see a trend, for the first time in my life
Because for the last year
I have kept afloat
Yeh for the last year
I have tied myself a rope
Oh, for the last year,
Yeh, for the last year
I have stayed awake

Chorus

Verse 3:
I need to do better with all this time
Oh I will do better
Please just don't leave me behind
Track Name: A Song For a Friend
Verse 1:
And I am sorry
That I have changed
But I have seen too much
To stay the same
But you are far from perfect
And I am without a purpose

Chorus:
And starry eyes and broken alibis
Won't save you tonight my dear
Say what you need, let me bleed
Among the thorns in my head
I wish I could let go
I wish I could just through your love to the side
I wish I could hide

Verse 2:
I walk home with my eyes low
Thinking about things you said to me
And I am left on the ground, on the ground
Outside my house, while I bleed
Because you took my heart and you caressed it
You coaxed it out of its hard shell
But then you threw it down, and stomped on it
And worse of all, I know you hit on him
