about

Life really hasn't gone the way that I planned, and this second EP is testament to that. It pits two of my oldest songs against some of my newest ones, showing how my life has shifted between them.

Track Name: Loose Cannon
This man's a mess
He's been drinking late again
Rubbing cheeks with the man in red
Slams a door
Finds his battered punching bag
The only way he can clear his head

He calls the girl he loves
He knows she once loved him too

Sets off his loose cannon, loose cannon
Sets off his loose cannon, loose cannon

She blocks the call
Sick of hearing drunken thoughts
He's not her responsibility
In later hours
She will dream of her close friends
And what they're thinking in their sleep

And she knows their thoughts are hers
And if not, well...

She'll set off her loose cannon, loose cannon
Set off her loose cannon, loose cannon

He sleeps as well
As any log
A broken limb
Newly cast off
His god's in drag
His mind in chains
He has no thoughts
He has no name

Let's man this ship
Send ports crashing to the ground
Take your share, for what it's worth

If the sea won't be our end
And our costumes still won't fade
And our masters still won't sleep
And our heads just still won't sleep

Then set off your loose cannon, loose cannon
Set off your loose cannon, loose cannon
Set off your loose cannon, loose cannon
Set off your loose cannon, loose cannon
Track Name: Wake Up
Come
Come into the water
You know I am no swimmer
But won't you swim with me

So cold
When it gets to the nighttime
There's beasts in the tree line
Come make a fire with me

And oooohhhhhh
Can I wake up
With you-ohhhhhhh
Can I wake up

Five dogs
Stand in the clearing
They won't stop their barking
I think they're calling for me

Just rest
We'll be there by sun down
And when the moon comes round
You'll be walking with me

And ooohhhh
Can I wake up
With you-ooohhhh
Can I wake up?

There's a man..in my thoughts
His face is blurred but his suit is sharp
And in his hands is what I thought was lost
A fragment of our broken jaw
A key to a boat in a port in a city
And a hastily scribbled map to the
Island we sailed from

Now here's my boat..here's the sea
And the number of waves between you and me
Getting fewer and fewer, race through the surf
Pieces of puzzles from what we thought was worthless
Now the sun is setting through the sails, I can sleep
And hold together the ashes of the dreams we keep
Holding onto

And ooohhhh
Can I wake up
With you-ooohhhh
Can I wake up?
And ooohhhh
Can I wake up
With you
Track Name: Evergreens
Fire burning through the evergreens
Smoke billowing and floating South
I stood facing the red autumn leaves
No Crimson word escaped my mouth
The fire service did their job and took
Water from the lake beside your house
And all the faces that surrounded shook
And asked where God was now

Well you were perfect like autumn leaves
Bright and shimmering with strength, you know
I felt your beauty inbetween the trees
And was lost within your glow
But you were not for me nor I for you
Our summer love was buried in the snow
We stopped basking in red hazy hue
And the woods were all a-glow

You were slipping into fever dreams
Sweating, shivering and shaking, oh
All your Devils bursting through the seams
You looked like hell and I was shaken up
I lit a candle just to show my love
And slipped away without a sound
I lit a candle just for you my love
On the day your house burned
On the day your house burned
On the day the woods burned
On the day your house burned down, down, down
Track Name: Lock the Summer
Maybe I've found myself on a ledge
And I don't have the courage
To push myself off the edge
Maybe I'm too scared of what I can't see
But I'm just too tired to focus
On the world around me

You said every moment is alive
But I wanna be there to feel it, so

Lock the summer, lock the summer
Lock the summer up till winter starts rolling away
Lock the summer, lock the summer
Lock the summer up till winter starts rolling away

Maybe I've been a little too cold
But I'm still trying to process the
Stories and lies I've been told
But baby, I'm fine, yeah I'll be alright
At least that's half the words I say
To myself in the night

You said to be is to survive
But it's getting harder to think straight, so

Lock the summer, lock the summer
Lock the summer up till winter starts rolling away
Lock the summer, lock the summer
Lock the summer up till winter starts rolling away

But in the moment I am confused
It is a choice I cannot choose
Or an opportunity to take back
All those years I lost to her
To her

I'd swear my memories are all lies
But you say it's me, and I'm here, and I'm never going to go away, so

Lock the summer, lock the summer
Lock the summer up till winter starts rolling away
Lock the summer, lock the summer
Lock the summer up till winter starts rolling away
Lock the summer, lock the summer
Lock the summer up till winter starts rolling away
Lock the summer, lock the summer
Lock the summer up till winter starts rolling away
