about

This EP was recorded in the summer of 2007 at my friend Seth's home studio in Columbus, OH. I went there for one weekend session in July where we recorded most of the tracks, and then I retured for another weekend mixing/wrap-up session in August.

Track Name: Interrupt Me (From My Boredom)
I’ve spent my day just wasting time waiting for a fling
But I might spend my night alone if my phone doesn’t ring
I hope somebody calls me, and I hope they call me soon
Cause I’m getting awfully tired sitting in my room

I moved back in with my folks out in B.F.E.
Oh, how I miss all my friends and the joys of the city
I’ve got no transportation I can call my own
Looks like another night I’m stuck at home

Tonight is gonna be a long one
I can tell already it’s gonna be a lot of fun
And I’m wishing that someone
Would call and interrupt me from my boredom

I know it sounds ridiculous that I’d move out of town
Believe me, if I could I would have tried to stick around
But those bills kept coming more and more each day
More than I could afford to even try to pay

Tonight is gonna be a long one
I can tell already it’s gonna be a lot of fun
And I’m wishing that someone
Would call and interrupt me from my boredom
Would call and interrupt me from my boredom

Track Name: Essence Of Life
Take my hand and lead me
I don't know where I'm going from here
I'm in need of direction
If I go, can I return?
What if I have made the wrong decision?
I couldn't bear to live with that

Everyday we are faced
With a multitude of choices to make
Which run the course of our lives
There will be times when we're right
And there will be many times when we're wrong
Either way we have to choose

I used to fear the outcome of the risks I could take
And I would dread if anything I did was a mistake
I didn't know that's the essence of life

In the end what I do
Is ultimately what I wanted
Every choice is within my hands
So I can’t make any excuses

Nor blame anyone for what I do
All yielded by my own free will

I used to fear the outcome of the risks I could take
And I would dread if anything I did was a mistake
I didn't know that's the essence of life
Risks and mistakes are the essence of life

Take my hand
Take my hand
Take my hand and lead me

Track Name: Forgotten
Sometimes I don't have the words
To say what should heard
Every once in a while
But I'm not incompetent
Just feel insignificant
More often than I should

I'm like anyone else
Trying to make it for myself
Please don't place me on your shelf
Where the dust will settle
And I would be forgotten

I've tried so hard to please
That I'm hurting my knees
Kneeling for everyone
But I'm learning not to care
About the thoughts that are there
Sitting in your mind

I'm like anyone else
Trying to make it for myself
Please don't place me on your shelf
Where the dust will settle
And I would be forgotten

I'll keep away from Midas and his clutch
Don't want to be deprived by his golden touch
His hand has never appealed all that much to me

I want to sing that rock and roll
Without selling my soul
That devil won't get me

I'm like anyone else
Trying to make it for myself
Please don't place me on your shelf
Where the dust will settle
And I would be forgotten

Track Name: Everything Twice
The other night you were pining
How you longed to be with him
I said that you've been hiding
Behind your superficial skin
You don't let anybody see
The woman you really are
So you spend your lonely nights
Single at the bar

Sometimes I wonder why I have to be so nice
Why do I have to say everything twice?

You were questioning the motives
Of every guy you'd date
Accusing them of indiscretions
Blaming them for your mistakes
I sat quietly and listened
As you were rambling on
I didn't have the nerve to tell you
Again that you were wrong

Sometimes I wonder why I have to be so nice
Why do I have to say everything twice?

The night was starting to get late
So we finished up our drinks
I asked if you were ok to drive
You smiled and said, "I think"
I said that everything should work out
Once you gained some confidence
In yourself and in your prospects
And used some common sense

Sometimes I wonder why I have to be so nice
Why do I have to say everything twice?
Sometimes I wonder why I have to be so nice
Why do I have to say everything twice?

Everything twice
Everything twice
Everything twice

Track Name: Latest Crush
Why must her lonely heart
Be as fragile as glass?
For it nearly breaks apart
Every time he’ll pass
There are no sticks or stones
That he’s been throwing
Just daydreams and high hopes

That she’s slowly been growing

How do you tell her?
What words do you say?
That she’d be better
If she'd turn around and walk away

She smiles when she sees him
With a shy but flirting glance
Yet he has no intention
Of making any advance
He doesn't have a clue
That he is her latest crush
As he walks naively through
He melts her heart into mush

How do you tell her?
What words do you say?
That she’d be better
If she'd turn around and walk away

How do you tell her?
What words do you say?
That she’d be better
If she'd turn around
If she'd turn
If she'd turn around
If she'd turn
If she'd turn
If she'd turn
If she'd turn around and walked away

Why must her lonely heart
Be so fragile?

Track Name: The Gallows
Do you have what it takes to admit when you’re wrong?
Can you share your mistakes so proving that you’re strong?

Don’t be afraid
Don’t be shallow
Don’t hang yourself in the gallows of your pride

You’ll need some courage to stand for your convictions
You’ll face demurrage and many restrictions

Don’t be afraid
Don’t be shallow
Don’t hang yourself in the gallows of your pride

I look at you and see potential
Even with your lack of credentials
You can make love existential

You can be…
The incarnation of love

Track Name: Unfortunately For You
I've done many things I regret
Many things I wish I could forget
And what really makes me upset
Is that I hurt you so much

I wish I could change the past
And take all the awful things I said back
But since I can't undo any of that
I hope we can work things out

I'm sorry for everything I've done
I'd do anything just to make it up to you

Why did I have to wait to learn

My lesson by letting you get hurt?
You suffered what you didn't deserve
Unfortunately for you

I know there's nothing that I could say
That would easily heal the pain
I'd understand if you walked away
But I really want to make things right with you

So I'm sorry for everything I've done
I'd do anything just to make it up to you
I'm sorry for anything I've done
I'd do everything just to make it up to you
