Cornered 03:30
The path that never ends I go back around again Until I don't know when And I can't stop There's a bright light in my eyes I try to look back to the sky No matter how I try It's still there You know where I'll be tonight 3AM I'm looking for your light Cause if I can't do it on my own there's trouble here with more to come Now the darkness comes My heart starts beating like a drum Do I fight or do I run I just don't know You can't stop me when I'm there Run away cause you'll be scared Drive all night until you're there Until you're safe It's something that I just can't stop It's something that you must unlock You've never seen it until now Let's hope you never have to see me like this again I try but its frightening On my lip, I'm biting. My two fists, they're tightening Oh won't you let me be?! I'm calm but you're wrong now I need to have the patience to show you how You stand there laughing while I break down I'll never see myself the same way again The path that never ends I go back around again Until I don't know when And I can't stop The path that never ends I go back around again I'll learn to make amends When I can stop.
Big Heart 03:26
Sleeping won't be easy, when you've gone away Dreams will tell sweet lies, that waking will betray Though words are all that stand between us, I be there to say It's okay Big Heart whispers nightly that the end will soon be here Where love and understanding becomes riddled with fear And even though I cant imagine life without you here It's okay All signs lead to the end of the road and I know life is a story can't be told til' you reach the end The night that I've been dreading showed itself in the morning light A distant cry was too nearby for something to be alright And now theres only one thing that I can think to say It's okay Big Heart whispers one last time as I look you in the eye Love and understanding summarized in one last sigh And now sleeping isn't easy, cause you're trapped inside my dreams The morning never seemed so dark and the silence seems to scream But every night I live a lie where you can speak my name And tell me it's ok.
Diskagnito 03:39
I still remember when the world first defeated you Must be cause some scars never fade A new skin can turn you in to something that you hate If only you were the only one being played And it's tough to see you break hearts While I just stand tall and watch Think I gotta give up because I'm Under the impression that I'm wasting my time You can't complicate me Everybody thinks that they're so lonely You can't complicate me You tore down your home in the house of the holy You can't complicate me You've been reading upside down signs How can you look me in my soul and say you feel so alone Just watch me change To vie is to sacrifice what keeps me safe But trying to try to lie alone Is prying the time right out of my soul And I know, that I don't know And it's tough to see you break hearts While I just crawl through the dust Punched through a wall of trust on a hazel peak Don't you even try to satisfy me You can't complicate me Everybody thinks that they're so lonely You can't complicate me You tore down your home in the house of the holy You can't complicate me You've been faking all the damn time How can you look me in my soul and say you feel so alone!? It's beginning to feel like your world has won My hands are untied, so you can teach me fun I'll jump off small houses and hope to unravel I'll move small mountains and bleed by example You can't complicate me.
9 O'Clock 07:14
(Jon) The sound of alarms ringing in my ears I need a few more minutes, or a couple of years Slept in late, got work at 8 Got up, ran straight out the door with haste Out on the highway thinking about how I'm trapped in a cycle, here and now Cars blare, lights flare, mean glares, don't care Caught in a traffic jam, going nowhere My fingers rata-tata-tappin' on the wheel Kickin' my brakes with my soles and my heels Now I'm growing weary of the same old drive Repeating a daily routine to survive Although there's always something going on excuses that I claim There isn't anything to stop me from leaving Only got myself to blame So I try to occupy my time With the beat and the rhyme to get by Till I get my mind out of the past And grasp what's ahead Before I work myself until I'm dead! Burritos (Bryan) Go to the store Gonna get some Lemon Squares Get to the door It's just a bunch of million-air heads Wasting my time I'm just a few steps out of line This disrepair I want to cause myself's a victimless crime In through the aisles This shit seems to evade me I'm in mile seven marquee for that vitamin C Or something like that I don't know anymore Distracted at the horse divorce However you pronounce it Deflating concentration is the source of my stagnation Finally found it Right next to the Pi- R you kidding me!? Its ninety nine ninety Six, my prediction was wrong This is just some sugar and lemons that I used to prolong this song Whatever It's just a quid pro quo I'm out, 'bout to pick up one of those One of those? One of those. ONE OF THOSE! Burritos (Gooch) I hope you trip So tie your shoes Running back and forth From day to day Can't make up your mind You're lost on your way I'm at a loss of words For thinking you were once kind I have to play the game Stomach's in a knot Because of my mind I feel for you all around At the same time I really wish you weren't here Unsettling rejoice I can't say that I'm happy I can't say that I'm mad Sappy would work But Nirvana would be mad Shame on me, shame on me Leave me alone Go away Rummaging through the black and white Stuck in the gray I only think of leaving Every moment Of every day Stuck in the dark I need the light 'Cause you're saving the power For everyone else. Burritos (Brandon) Understanding isn't easy to communicate through lies Your acting is impressive, but your method's ill-advised Target locked upon the sun, but you can't even see the skies It's a beast to say the least but I spy... You're living in denial Truth can be a type of misbehavior A room of passer-by's telling you to act their age Or something just real enough to make the world believe your bluff But if you can't afford to make it, you might just be the product A bomb You cut enough wires, the ticking don't stop and you set off a silent alarm The storm defines the calm But basically you can be dangerous and anything Hospitable as anyone, but never any better 'Til you learn to be you And you've got nothing to prove You tend to surround yourself with everyone you love - to lose So your woes accumulate and you can only blame yourself When 9 O'Clock comes around I've got my friends and my health, and some... Burritos (Basner) It's getting late It's time to say goodnight You don't want to leave me You've got such a big appetite Dammit, you're right I'm all out of fight I'll see you in the morning And everything will be alright But it's not air-tight and I can see it in your eye You're holding back a cry But you won't tell me why So I'm leaving, man, fly Sunlight burning in your eyes Can't see me in the glare Cause I'm not really there You don't even want to look in my face What did I do to deserve to be thought of with such distaste Now cut it Paste Don't let the extra go to waste There's a man sitting next to you eating food up off your place And to negate my existence And to show me such resistance How can you be cool with me And keep so much distance? Goodnight, goodbye Whatever makes you smile I'd rather keep my brains in my head than on the floor tiles. Burritos
Congratulations! Today is your day You’re off to great places You’re off and away You've got brains in your head Feet in your shoes You can steer yourself Any direction you choose You’ll look up and down the streets Look them over with care About some you will say, I don’t choose to go there With your head full of brains And your shoes full of feet You’re too smart to go down any not so good street You may not find any, you’ll want to go down In that case of course you’ll head straight out of town Oh! The Places You’ll Go Except when you don’t Because sometimes you wont You can get so confused That you’ll start in to race Down long wiggled roads At a break necking pace And grind on for miles Across weirdish wild space Headed, I fear, toward a most useless place The waiting place For people just waiting. Waiting for a train to go Or a bus to come Or a plane to go Or the mail to come Or the rain to go Or the phone to ring Or the snow to snow Or waiting around for a yes or no Waiting for their hair to grow Everyone's just waiting. Waiting for the fish to bite Or waiting for wind to fly a kite Or waiting around for Friday night Or waiting for their uncle jake Or a string of pearls or a pair of pants Or a wig with curls or another chance Everyone is just waiting. No! That’s not for you Somehow you’ll escape All that waiting and staying You’ll find the bright places Where Boom Bands are playing With banner flip-flapping Once more you’ll ride high Ready for anything under the sky Ready because you’re that kind of a guy Oh The places You’ll Go There’s fun to be done There are points to be scored There are games to be won And the magical things you can do with that ball Will make you the winningest winner of all Fame! You'll be famous as famous can be With the whole wide world watching you win on TV Except when they don’t Because sometimes they won't All alone Whether you like it or not Alone will be something you’ll be quite a lot But on you will go Though the weather seem foul On you will go Though your enemies prowl On you will go Though the Hakken-Kraks howl On you will go On you will go... On you will go Though the weather seem foul On you will go Though your enemies prowl On you will go Though the Hakken-Kraks howl On you will go Onward you'll go Onward up many A frightening creek Though your arms may get sore And your sneakers may leak And will you succeed Yes! You will indeed 98 and ¾ percent guaranteed Kid... You'll move mountains


We created this EP as part of a challenge to ourselves. We decided to write songs inspired by genres we don't normally play. We believe musical expression shouldn't be limited by genre. Some days you want to scream your head off and some days you have to quietly reminisce... and sometimes life hands you a steady beat to rap to. Thank you for listening and we hope everyone who listens to this record takes whatever they need out of it.
