about

Our very first EP. We recorded this a few months after we first started playing shows. Sean and I were in our freshman year of high school, Jonathan was a junior and Chase and Drew were still in the band. We didn't use a click track and we didn't use Pro Tools, so it's pretty sloppy and unpolished. This is where we started though, and I'll always be proud of that.

Track Name: Life Sentence
Verse 1
Well I grew up in a rock n’ roll town,
Used to stand outside clubs and listen to the sound.

Les Paul through a Marshall stack,
Blew my eardrums, threw me back.

The first time I picked up a guitar,
I knew it was for me, didn’t have to look far.

Verse 2
So I joined up my very own band,
Played dingy bars and beach bandstands.

We covered rock n’ roll, and played the blues,
Anything the singer would do.

We made an album and the very next day,
We got a record deal and were on our way.

Verse 3
Headlining tour, millions of fans,
We even made it big in Japan.

Rolling Stone wants us on the cover,
Didn’t take us long to discover.

That when you win album of the year,
People tend to treat you like some kinda hero.

Verse 4
Well I’m in this; I’m in it for life.
On the road too long, can’t keep a wife.

Big house, lots of money, new car,
Can’t never see ‘em, I’m always too far.

Dropped outta school, not much knowledge in my head,
But I’ll play rock n’ roll till the day I’m dead.
Track Name: Slow Lane
I promise I'll be home tonight, but later than expected.
It's no necessity for me to be that punctual.
Leave the door unlocked for me,
so when I take the car keys from
the ignition, I won't wake you from your sleep.

It's called rush hour, but the cars drive slow
much like I do when there's no place to go
or no need to hurry.
I don't wanna worry anymore.
The metal's no home for my car's pedals.
I'd rather stay in the right lane; it suits me better
Don't wanna drive fast until I gotta shift the gears.

When you wake I'll be gone again.
Don't know where I'm headed.
but the whole time I'm gone, I won't forget you.
I'll ride the winds of fate.
Won't regret the choice I made.
I won't take any doubt from them anymore.

It's called rush hour, but the cars drive slow
much like I do when there's no place to go
or no need to hurry.
I don't wanna worry anymore.
The metal's no home for my car's pedals.
I'd rather stay in the right lane; it suits me better
Don't wanna drive fast until I gotta shift the gears.

But what if I run empty?
On the side of the road with no way home.
What if I run empty?
My wheels in a drag; I'm in a body bag.
I hope I don't run empty.
Doesn't matter when, you might not see me again

So I'll save my fuel till I'm by your side.
I'll save my fuel till I'm by your side.
I'll save my fuel till I'm by your side at home.

It's called rush hour, but the cars drive slow
much like I do when there's no place to go
or no need to hurry.
I don't wanna worry anymore.
The metal's no home for my car's pedals.
I'd rather stay in the right lane; it suits me better
Don't wanna drive fast until I gotta shift the gears.
Track Name: Fighting For a Misplaced Cause
Caught in a perpetual state,
Knowing some will stay and others will wait.

Stuck in a limbo,
Between being fish and being bait.

Sat down this morning,
And watched us have a war without an enemy.

Blasting blindly away,
At what it is that makes us free.

It’s all over now,
But it doesn’t matter to me.

Cause’ if ignorance is bliss,
Then maybe it’s the key.

But I can’t wait another day,
The world falling apart beneath my feet.

Cracks in the sidewalks,
And no cars in the street.

And I can’t find my way,
To get where I’m supposed to be.

Being lost and without a cause,
You can assign to me.

So I walked in and noticed,
You had left and gone so far away.

Couldn’t help but ponder,
Everything that had gone wrong today.

Not to let the world get me down I went on with my life,
And I can say.

That anyone you ask,
Will tell you how it makes sense the way that,

It’s all over now,
But it doesn’t matter to me.

Cause’ if ignorance is bliss,
Then maybe it’s the key.

But I can’t wait another day,
The world falling apart beneath my feet.

Cracks in the sidewalks,
And no cars in the street.

And I can’t find my way,
To get where I’m supposed to be.

Being lost and without a cause,
You can assign to me.

And nobody ever said,
Don’t be ready.

Cause’ nobody ever knew,
That they’d be wrong.

Just live your life,
And don’t be sorry.

Fighting for a misplaced cause,
Never did us any harm.

But I can’t wait another day,
The world falling apart beneath my feet.

Cracks in the sidewalks,
And no cars in the street.

And I can’t find my way,
To get where I’m supposed to be.

Being lost and without a
Track Name: Gamble
Lying awake at night, I'm staring at the ceiling.
Nobody at my door, but I sense something more.
Impatience fills my mind, it's getting hard to try.
But I'm still by myself and I need somone's help...

Can't look for happily ever after when we all need something real,
Just roll the dice and don't look twice 'cause that's not how we feel.
Got lost in the aftermath, but what happened first wasn't all that bad.
No one says we have to beg and steal.

Life flying by so fast, blurred faces of the people I know quickly rushing by.
When it's all said and done, when we've all had our fun, will we know who has won?

Can't look for happily ever after when we all need something real,
Just roll the dice and don't look twice 'cause that's not how we feel.
Got lost in the aftermath, but what happened first wasn't all that bad.
No one says we have to beg and steal.

And there's nothing I want more than to be completely sure
I've got the answers I need, nothing else I can see.
And a thought, it comes to mind, maybe I'm just almost blinded by the situation,
Nothing else that's left to say but...

Can't look for happily ever after when we all need something real,
Just roll the dice and don't look twice 'cause that's not how we feel.
Got lost in the aftermath, but what happened first wasn't all that bad.
No one says we have to beg and steal.
Track Name: Gone
I, don’t have time,
To think of what I know to.

I, don’t know the way,
But I know that I can show you.

I, stood in line my while life,
Then I left and I’m gone.

I, know that something’s wrong,
But I can’t put my finger on it.

I, have my pole in the water,
But it won’t get bit.

I, lived your whole life story,
But then I left and I’m gone.

I think I’m dead
There’s nothing to be said
For the logic of the world.

Can’t you see?
It’s a mystery,
She’s a very special kind of girl.

I, know that if I had a choice
It would be.

I, can never tell who I know
And who knows me.

I, used to do the same things,
But then I left and I’m gone.

I think I’m dead
There’s nothing to be said
For the logic of the world.

Can’t you see?
It’s a mystery,
She’s a very special kind of girl.

I, lost track of time,
The months the years they flew by.

I, can’t tell you why,
Just that I tried.

I, am walking away from everything,
And I’ll be gone.
