Simply put 0.00 into the "BUY NOW" field and **VOILA!** You're the proud owner of this EP.

Songs based on characters and themes from Avatar: The Last Airbender and Avatar: Legends Of Korra animated series.

*I wrote a lot of these songs around about the time I came across a video of Jon Gomm playing his song "Passionflower" and really wanted to write intertwining intricate acoustic guitar lines.

A lot of these songs are results of the being inspired by Jon Gomm's style, Hey Rosetta's 2014 album, Second Sight and Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Track Name: Blankets Of Blame
VERSE 1:
What good am I if I can't save you, if I can't save you like he would
I hear the stories and bathe in glory but I feel like I'm firewood.

CHORUS:
I'm not happy til these people are happy
But they're never happy til they've got somebody to blame
Day after day, they're all the same
blankets of blame on the bed that I made
I'm not finished til I say I'm finished
But the people in this city always have an angle to play
Day after day, finding new ways
And blankets of blame on this bed of complaints

VERSE 2:
I feel the movement and move on through it
I'm learning who I want to be
This heavy heart lifts and hope surrounds it
I'm being who I want to be

CHORUS 2:
It's not over til I say it's over
But the moment that I know and I always have to explain
No one's to blame and people are strange
These blankets of blame fall on all just the same
I don't want to but I always have to
And I always get involved because nobody knows how to trade
Day after day, always the same
These common complaints shifting blankets of blame
Track Name: As Weak As We Are - Part 1 (Aang's Song)
VERSE 1:
Take away my breath and you're all that's left
Moving water in my blood and everyone's upset

CHORUS:
Everyone is lonely, at least when they're alone
And everyone is homeless when they're away from home
And everyone needs everyone to try and get along
Cause in the end we're only as weak as we are strong

VERSE 2:
You can take my friends, I'll just get them back
When it's hard to trust, when we're way off track

BRIDGE:
You can move the mountains and she can ford the seas
But I have no requirements for the friends I keep
The company is only good as long as it's around
We're moving like an earthquake but we're solid as the ground
Track Name: That One Day
VERSE 1:
I can't sleep tonight
Tomorrow brings me another fight
These last few days weigh heavy conscious on my tired soul
I'm just not alright (I'm just not alright)
Who's to say who's wrong or right?
This pressure builds up like a rocket waiting to explode

PRE CHORUS:
Gather crowds of people talking all at once
A hundred different voices, a thousand different wants
Gather all the people, see them in the sun
Reminds me of the future, assuming we have one

CHORUS:
Hand on hand we're moving on again
Never staying still and waiting for the day we will
Step by step we diminish distance left
Never staying still but hoping that one day we will

VERSE 2:
I won't sleep tonight
Tomorrow brings my past to life
This question begs a certain answer, one I must deny
I just can't decide (I just can't decide)
Justice begs me from their eyes
Who made this life we live and can we (should we) ever take it back?
Track Name: Momo & Appa's Song [INSTRUMENTAL]
INSTRUMENTAL
Track Name: The Girl Who Saved The Moon [Acoustic]
Long is the day and you were there waiting like the night.
You were the night.

VERSE 1:
I was the day and you, you were the endless night.
You wear the darkest sky, you were the reason why.

CHORUS:
And some things never die
(You aren't ever going to die)
You are the midnight sun, but not the only one tonight
And something never die
(You aren't ever gonna die)
I'd love to see you soon
But you're the girl who saves the moon

I am the waves and you were there lighting up the sky
You run the night, oh

VERSE 2:
And in the way that you showed me how to feel
Divining what is real, I keep an even keel

BRIDGE 1:
You were the princess and I was a clown
We lost all our chances for normalcy now
Here comes the plot twist, a definite hole
And no one to fight to get back what they stole
From us both

BRIDGE 2:
Tracing this circle
Start it anew
Saving the city starts here with you
Tracing the circle
Start it anew
Saving the future means saving the moon

COUNTER BRIDGE:
Yin and yang, the sun and moon
You and me, you're gone too soon
Track Name: No One Left Prologue [INSTRUMENTAL]
INSTRUMENTAL
Track Name: No One Left
VERSE 1:
See the fire burning bright
See the ocean, feel the tide
Breathe the air in long and deep
Feel the hard ground beneath my feet

CHORUS 1:
There's no one left to sing my songs and nowhere to belong
When your home is an inferno, all your friends think that you're gone
There's no one left to hold my hand or even understand
It's like your spiralling in circles in a strange and foreign land

VERSE 2:
See the fire split the sky
See the ocean as deep as wide
Feel the warm soil with my toes
Breathe the fresh air through the nose

BRIDGE:
Truth be told I want nothing less than this
All responsibilities are just an endless painful list
Truth be told I want nothing more than you
So simple but effective but so much is often true
Truth be told

CHORUS 2:
There's no one left to sing my songs and nowhere to belong
When you're hunted like an outlaw, all you have is to be strong
There's no one left to hold my hand, just loose and shifting sand
It's like a whirl pool of emotion and I'm doing all I can
