about

Four years ago, I had this idea. I was going to take a deck of index cards and write words on them. Every day, I would draw a new word from the deck and write a song based on the word. This process combined with drawing inspiration from old ideas in notebooks, tapes, and CDs, helped me create this EP. As you can guess, it's how I came up with the name.

As much as I wanted this to be a full album, I wanted you guys to hear the best work I could possibly put out. That's what I believe this collection to be; four songs I'm extremely proud of that I hope all of you enjoy.

Track Name: It Ends Tonight
You’ll never find a stable job playing your guitar
Just stand attention at your desk and chase another star
Our generation lives in debt at the age of twenty four
Taking tests on useless facts they’ll never need to know

It ends tonight
It ends tonight
This time I will get my way

It ends tonight
It ends tonight
I am no longer afraid

It ends tonight

When some makes endless mistakes, they tell you he can change
But if you walk the same path, you forever lost your way
And I feel like a like a lion in a cage
Losing all my majesty with every passing day

It ends tonight
It ends tonight
This time I will get my way

It ends tonight
It ends tonight
I am no longer afraid

I am no longer afraid
It ends tonight

All it takes is just one spark to light the fire in this heart
Then I’ll be invincible
Track Name: October
As the leaves began to fall, I start to think out loud
Look how far we’ve come
Think how far we’ll go
As the years go on

We’ll dance under stars
Sleep through the day
God, I’d give anything for you to say that this fantasy was real
And the things I feel with you aren’t just a dream

Let October come and take us away

As the leaves began to fall, I start to think out loud
Look how far we’ve come
Think how far we’ll go
As the years go on

And you held me close
Just for a while
“Darling, I love you,” you said with a smile
It was then I knew that this autumn dream I had has now come true

Let October come and take us away

As the leaves fall, take my hand love
As the leaves fall, take my hand love

As the leaves began to fall, I start to think out loud
Look how far we’ve come
Think how far we’ll go
As the years go on

Let October come and take us away
Track Name: Bishop Road
I live on Bishop Road where the once kind hearts have gone so cold
And all my friends I’ve ever known are gone
They buy hair gel and cigarettes and wear silver chains around their necks
And all their common sense is dead and gone

You can try to live like them but they just won’t let you in

And the days turn to years when you’re living in fear
They break your nose if you don’t wear their clothes
Get me out of here

I live on Bishop Road where the once kind hearts have gone so cold
And all my friends I’ve ever known are gone
And they smash your face against the wall because you’re only four feet tall
By then your self esteem is dead and gone

You can try to live like them but they just won’t let you in

And the days turn to years when you’re living in fear
They take take your cash and knock you on your ass
Get me out of here
Get me out of here

And the days turn to years when you’re living in fear
But I’ll find my place and throw it in their face
When I get out of here
When I get out of here
Track Name: What We Are
There’s no greater punishment than a parent’s disappointment
But that’s what they’re gonna do
That’s what they’re gonna do

And only God can save us
That’s what the preacher tells us
Well now I don’t want him to
No I don’t want him to cause we are in love

There’s no greater punishment than a parent’s disappointment
But that’s what they’re gonna do
That’s what they’re gonna do

And the president will say
He will take our rights away
Well now I don’t want him to
And on the day I’ll say I do cause we are in love

You must remember this
A kiss is still a kiss
So don’t give us a label
Just call us what we are

Just call us what we are
We are in love

There’s no greater punishment than a parent’s disappointment
But at least I still have you
At least I still have you
