about

This EP is a collection of songs that I wrote last year when I was in a really dark place. It tells the story of heartbreak and healing, recovery and relapse. These songs mean a great deal to me, and I hope you find your own meaning from them.

A huge thank you to everyone who made this record possible and supported me along the way. I couldn’t have done it without you.

An extra special thank you to Dan ABH for putting countless hours into this record and for helping me create the sound that I’ve always wanted but couldn’t achieve on my own. You not only recorded my EP, but you were patient with me and taught me why and how things were done in the studio. I honestly could not be happier with these songs, and I can’t thank you enough.

Track Name: Stop
Well I’m just so tired of everything I just can’t make it stop
Yes I think I’ve had a bit too much I’m bout ready to drop
and I said
“I need you now”
“I need this now”

Well I’ve always been a mess but this is tearing me apart
And I still don’t understand why its so hard to break your heart
and i said
“At least i tried”
“You’re out of line”


Well I see your eye on every girl that happens to pass by
I’d love to go and punch them out I’d love to see you cry when I say
“Go screw yourself”
“You’ll burn in hell”


I’m just so tired of everything I just can’t make it
Track Name: Therapy
They say I should go to therapy
Well i guess I’m fuckin’ crazy
They don’t know how crazy I can be
‘cuz i don’t wanna go to therapy
‘cuz then it’ll all be real to me
and real is not where I wanna be

So throw out all your books and don’t try and diagnose me
‘cuz there’s no way in hell you could see

They say I should go to therapy
‘cuz I guess I’m just too sad
but only time will dry my tears
They say i should go to therapy
it wouldn’t be half bad
I say all I need is a few years

So do the simple math and get it through your heads
‘cuz 1 plus 1 is tearing me to shreds


OH!


It’s hard to face the facts when all you love just hurts you so bad

But i dont wanna go
to therapy oh therapy oh therapyx2
I dont wanna go x3
to therapy
Track Name: Expired
Sleep is for the week/weak I’m falling
Sick of her name you’re calling
I’m so tired, so uninspired
So I write these words to say
I forgot how to feel it seems
When before the pain was bursting my seams
I guess this is stage 1
These conversations are coming undone

We're all a bit selfish at times
and to our bodies we commit terrible crimes
but this battle I’m fighting within myself
I’ll put in a box until it’s time to dwell
on how bad things have been
like what what went wrong and who you’ve been
Holding it in when i just wanna break down
I cannot escape this the darkest of clouds

no nooo x2
it’s not fair x4
you don’t care x4

But I feel like it’s expired
Too many times I've cried and tried to prove to a liar
that some days are black and some are white
Anxiety spills and I’m losing my mind
I guess this is stage 2
I’m barely pieced together by insufficient glue
and I’ve fought and fought ‘till I’m too sick and tired
and I’ll live with this pain until that too expires

When living seems like a chore
and things are so different than they were before
It seems i’ve forgotten to feel
I don’t know what’s imagined and what is real
Because chemicals can’t comprehend me
but neither can people that claim that they know me
when i don’t even know myself
I don't wanna ask but I know I need help

no nooo x2
it’s not fair x4
you don’t care x4

‘cuz I’m drowning in this and I know I can’t cope
I question a god’s sick idea of a joke
a joke that is constant and never ends
and a beautiful world that seems so pretend
a joke that is constant and never ends
and a beautiful world that seems so pretend
a beautiful world that seems so pretend
a beautiful world that seems so pretend
a beautiful world that seems so pretend
Track Name: The Denial Song
It’s a quarter to 4 and I’m still waiting for the end
for someone to tell me it’s a dream
One day I’ll wake up from this nightmare I’ll pretend
and go on living my extremes

I don’t need you I’m a mess
I don’t need you I will prove it to myself


Let’s go
tonight
everythings alright x2
Let’s go
tonight
you’ll never cross my mind x2


Its a quarter to 10 and I’m still thinking of the end
in my minds eye they’re all the same
It’s a quarter to 12 and I’m still drinking ‘till the end
to all the lies I’m so ashamed
I don’t need you I’m a mess
I don’t need you I will prove it to myself


Let’s go
tonight
everythings alright x2
Let’s go
tonight
you’ll never cross my mind x2

And I’ve been thinking I’ve been telling everyone i love you
And I’ve been shutting out the world
And I've been thinking I've been telling everyone I love you
And I've been shutting out the world
when they tell me to move on but I’m not that strong


I don’t need you I’m a mess
I don’t need you I will prove it to myself


Let’s go
tonight
everythings alright x2
Let’s go
tonight
you’ll never cross my mind x2
tonight
I’m fine
I wanna die
Track Name: Paranoid
California Dreamin’ In the sun
No you’re not the only one
Who’s been let down

‘Cuz I’ve been California screamin’ for the one
Who may have picked me up
When I was too far down

Age is just a number
In the sky, oh my!
We lost track of time

‘Cuz I’ve been destroyed
Now I’m paranoid, I’m paranoid at best
Yes it’s been dismissed, I’m so sick of this
Try to fill this void with time
Or till I’m satisfied

Drown myself in people like me
I never knew that they
had the will to feel
Build my paper mountains
Like Lennon “Let it Be”
But it’s so hard, when I don’t know if it’s real

Age is just a number
In the sky, oh my!
We lost track of time

‘Cuz I’ve been destroyed
Now I’m paranoid, I’m paranoid at best
Yes it’s been dismissed, I’m so sick of this
Try to fill this void with time
Or till I’m satisfied

Oh ‘till I’m satisfied
Oooooooooh
Oh noo no no

‘Cuz I’ve been destroyed
Now I’m paranoid, I’m paranoid at best

(instrumental)

‘Cuz I’ve been destroyed
Now I’m paranoid, I’m paranoid at best
Yes it’s been dismissed, I’m so sick of this
Try to fill this void with time
Or till I’m satisfied
Track Name: Demons
I've been running around i've been making the same mistakes that you do
just to feel less lonely somehow
I’ve been running around chasing it down
chasing it down ‘cuz
Anything is better than the truth I’ve found
I've been carving secrets in my skin
been holding back
but i just wish that i could start up again

My only friend
until the end

I’m sinking now
I’m singing now
Black the sky, the tears I cry
What is this that I can't deny?
These demons will be haunting me all night

‘cuz for you
For you i give
oh somedays I don't wanna live
I don't know why
I even try
I don't know why


I’m sinking now
I’m singing now
Black the sky, the tears I cry
What is this that I can't deny?
These demons will be haunting, haunting no
I’m sinking now
I’m singing now
Black the sky, the tears I cry
What is this that I can't deny?
These demons will be haunting me all night

I’ve been running around, Ii've been making the same mistakes that you do
Just to feel anything at all
