about

This is a short EP of three acoustic tracks and two piano pieces I've written. The album features a range of my personal experiences and emotional turmoil. I'm not sure if there will be any other solo piano pieces released on future albums, nor do I consider it an integral or core part of this project. However, I hope you enjoy them all the same.

If you enjoy music that's somewhat somber to downright depressing then I think you're in the right place.

Track Name: Living the Dream
I feel sick all the time. It hasn't been easy, I pretend to be fine.
Sorry, no time to talk, I gotta get back to the grind.
Losing touch with my friends, the quickest path to losing them.
It's easier to be alone, so why don't you just go away?

Just say the words, "Don't worry, I'm fine."
Just say the words, "I'll be alright."
Just ignore all of your pain.
Just pretend it'll all go away some day.

I need to leave this place.
I need to go away, just so long as I disappear.
I need to fail this way, just so long as it's my mistake.
I don't know how to escape, so how can I run away when it just follows me?
I need to die today, just so long as I dig my grave.
Track Name: I Feel Like Losing
I tried so hard to forget. "It'll be easy" I said.
Burn the bridge, that's the test. Just don't think about it.
I guess I feel like losing again, and be held back by my selfishness.
To bury the light that exists. Emotional deconstruction.

Now I know my regret, to think that I could take it;
The deafening silence in my head, the loneliness culminating unchecked.
I guess I feel like losing again, and be held back by my selfishness.
Crashing everything down until it's wrecked, and keep burning until there's nothing left.
Track Name: Fly
I woke up feeling this way; It's gonna be another beautiful day.
You were shining brightly, it only fueled my curiosity.
How could someone be so great? An angel on Earth by mistake.
I approached only to find you were already soaring across the sky.

Well can I learn to fly? Can you teach me please?
Or will I fall and die? I guess in time we'll see.
But I try to be as free as you seem to be.

I flew too fast out the gate. It was clear I'd made a mistake.
Falling out of warm embrace, an empty feeling in it's place.
And time moved on, but I stood still. The space you left I cannot fill.
And yet your light keeps burning on, an inspiration to be strong.

Well can I learn to fly? Can you teach me please?
Or will I fall and die? I guess in time we'll see.
But I try to be as free as you seem to be.
