With Our Own Hands EP

We won't close our eyes any time, any time But our minds unravelling like twine Drinking brine, we'll see ourselves through the night If this is not where I wanted to be At a quarter past nine, or twenty to three I will lay down and hope for some sleep [I will lay down and hope for some sleep] The dreams we can keep replayed on the stream [Replayed on the stream] Wake up, it's time for the stream Abandon your dreams It's all for the kids CHORUS: Maybe I can't save you, but I can do my best to help somebody else We know the best cure is laughter so pure And that is what you're in store for for sure BRIDGE: We will be the guillotine and separate your sadness from your health
VERSE 1: You are not the first one to believe in me Guess something you said though got through to me CHORUS: But I'm not my biggest fan even though some days I am What a paradox I know, gotta learn to let things go And I'm trying, yeah I'm trying To believe in me VERSE 2: I was not the first one to believe in me But I'll get on the wagon and in time start to see BRIDGE: And to my wife and my little sister, I know you're both my biggest fans And both my parents are amazing, I know you do the best you can I've got great friends who all support me, I'm making new ones every day Don't let these feelings half destroy you, don't let the doubts eat you away CHORUS 2: But I'm not my biggest fan even though some days I am What a paradox I know, gotta take things as I go
Bury me, bury me in a cemetery of symmetry Line us up like rows of tiny trees Making mountains from geometry All creation groans The saviour waits inside our homes He watches us, he's taking notes Who are we when doors are closed Bury me, bury in a simple tree memory Watch me break the ground quietly In a future where we'll never be
VERSE CALL: I want to stay where I am I didn't have a stronger plan VERSE RESP: Take me back before attack Because the default And now it's my fault You and I aren't so designed No one's perfect but we're still worth it CHORUS: This is how it is and no agenda's gonna fix Who we are and what we've done With our own hands BRIDGE 1: We are the least of these things The darkness of our hearts is something we can't fix On our own On our own On our own But we are not alone BRIDGE 2: So wait for me, I don't want to tell you twice So now we won't survive by ignoring good advice


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

3 of the 4 songs on this EP were recorded on August 5 at the Roo Teeth 24 Hour Charity Live Stream using my newly build Bits-A-Tele, a Roger Linn Adrenalinn III effects unit and a few hours.
Special thanks to Sam Fiez and Ryan Frost for getting me involved in the stream and everyone who attended the stream for being so supportive and patient with me being the annoying musician guy setting up gear left and right.
"Mountains From Geometry" was an experiment with the then new Boss MS-3 multiFX & true bypass looper with added vocal ideas in October 2017.
