about

This EP is the culmination of 7 months of work, research, and creative drive. The entire thing was self produced. Even the artwork was done by my wonderful dad, Bill White. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed making it.

Track Name: ...And We Watched (As Your Sinking Ship Capsized)
The air is thick with a haze that won't clear
You find it hard to breath and fate won't disappear
You're sailing on a sea of selfishness and doubt
You try to scream but the storm just drowns you out

The horizon in the distance, it bares no sight of land
You;re starting to wonder now about just where you stand
A crack of thunder sounds, and your dooms not far away
You turn to look at me, but, I've nothing left to say

And we watched as your sinking ship capsized
Watched you in the rising waves
Watched as your sinking ship capsized
Watched you succumb to your ways

And who are you to question me?
I am right where I should be
My mast's unbroken, my sails unfurled
You have come to the end of your world

You breathe so quick, and the breath sticks in your throat
You think you've found the place about wish they all wrote
The vision flickers, then it melts before your eyes
You find yourself alone and screaming for your life

You always said to me you'd save me if I tried
But you can't understand the way I live my life
I do not need your help I'll be who I will be
And now it seems that you;re the one who needed me

And we watched as your sinking ship capsized
WAtched you in the swirling wind
Watched as your sinking ship capsized
Watched you fall prey to your whim

And who are you to question me?
I am right where I should be
My mast's unbroken, my sails unfurled
You have come to the end of your world

And we watched as your sinking ship capsized
Watched you in the rising waves
Watched as your sinking ship capsized
Watched you again
Track Name: Dryer Fire
I helped you escape from that fate that you made
It makes me sick how many times I saw you fall on your face
You never noticed me, but now I'm right here to say
I'm gonna laugh when all those diamonds in your eyes fall away

You couldn't handle the pain, the regret, and the shame
Your apathetic facade was the cause of the pain
You had you're fun with me, and then you left me to bleed
I guess I'm not the kind of guy that could give you what you need

You're lies are coming to the wire
You will get just what you desire
You're not the one that I admire
You're life is just a dryer fire

You were a constant draw, I was the final straw
I never thought that you would only see my every flaw
I'll admit at the start, back when we met I was blind
But everything is looking clearer now I've opened my mind

To escape from the name that you carved in my face
I had to run away from you like I was part of a race
I see you laughing now because you've figured out me
But, baby, I'm not as predictable as I might seem

You're lies are coming to the wire
You will get just what you desire
You're not the one that I admire
You're life is just a dryer fire

Bring out the big guns I'm not here to play
You'll find out soon what life is like on your knees

You're lies are coming to the wire
You will get just what you desire
You're not the one that I admire
You're life is just a dryer fire

I finally escaped from that fate that I made
I know I made you sick, but I am not the one you should blame
I noticed every time that you were right next to me
Now with the diamonds gone I feel like I can finally see

You're lies are coming to the wire
You will get just what you desire
You're not the one that I admire
You're life is just a dryer fire

I'm not the one that was a lier
I never got what I desired
I can;t help that I'm not admired
My life is not a dryer fire
Track Name: Trashy Ashley
Well she was a good girl, but no one knew her name
So she had to find a way to make her own fame
She talked to all her friends, asked them what she should do
But all of them were in her situation too

Trashy Ashley
She found a way
Trashy Ashley
She's here to stay
Trashy Ashley
Well that girl just drives me wild
Trashy Ashley
But now I never see her smile

She wanted to be just like all the cool kid types
So she tried to dress her ass in skinny jeans so tight
But I'll never forget that girl's punk rock ways
It's such a tragedy, why did she have to change?

She knew that she wanted more
And now she's looking to score

Trashy Ashley
She found a way
Trashy Ashley
She's here to stay
Trashy Ashley
Well that girl just drives me wild
Trashy Ashley
But now I never see her smile

She changed her style so many damn times
Lost all her friends, but she's never alone at night
This kind of life it just doesn't look the same
And now she's wishing that she could lose the name

Trashy Ashley
She found a way
Trashy Ashley
She's here to stay
Trashy Ashley
Well that girl just drives me wild
Trashy Ashley
But now I never see her smile

Trashy Ashley
She's gone away
Trashy Ashely
And she was never meant to stay
Trashy Ashley
And now I can drive her wild
Trashy Ashely
Yeah, I knew I could make her smile

She knew that she wanted more
Than just getting to score
Track Name: Keeps Me 'round (Acoustic)
We drive past these city lights
Under the dark black sky,
And darling, it's a perfect ride for two

In your grandfather's car
Though it won't get that far,
Anywhere is far enough with you

And I'd like to say I'm tired of the norm
But something 'bout you never gets me bored
Why try to fight this feeling I'll just end up falling down
'Cause something 'bout you always keeps me 'round

The lake is glistening
Like the sew on your skin
Baby, we'd better go inside

You're toweling off you're hair
I just can't help but stare
I can't believe the way you grip my eyes

And I'd like to say I'm tired of the norm
But something 'bout you never gets me bored
Why try to fight this feeling I'll just end up falling down
'Cause something 'bout you always keeps me 'round

It's the sun and the moon and the stars in the sky,
It's the mist in the air it's you and I,
It's a drunken kiss on a midnight shore,
It's the way you make me beg for more

And darling, I can't think of a better way to waste my time
Than sitting right here, close by your side

And I'd like to say I'm tired of the norm
But something 'bout you never gets me bored
Why try to fight this feeling I'll just end up falling down
'Cause something 'bout you always keeps me 'round

And I'd like to say I'm tired of the norm
But something 'bout you never gets me bored
Why try to fight this feeling I'll just end up falling down
'Cause something 'bout you always keeps me 'round
Track Name: Jaw, Knee, Music
Johnny has a problem
Johnny is out of control
He had a TV party
With the kids of the black hole
Stealing people's mail
And lynching the landlord
Things to do when angry, young and bored

Johnny was only a lad
Johnny hates the scene
First he hit an old man
Then he hit and run Pauline
The record player spinning the best times
I never had
So why do my old records make me sad?

Cause they're so bad
And no one seems to understand
The glory of guitar
When out of tune
The off timing
The singers who can't sing
The beauty of flaw

He's a teenage vegetable
Listens to last resort
He's got PCP in his veins
He lives inside a quart
Johnny is a punk rocker
Johnny is he queer?
Johnny needed two bags
And a car to commandeer
Johnny wasn't liked much
But he had a lot of friends
Waits on stage eating ludes
A mindless brainwashed pig
Johnny was a good man
Till the day that he got shot
He had a jacked up chevy
That could blow you off the spot

Johnny always needs
More than he takes
Forgets a couple chords
Forgets a couple breaks
Johnny says he's bound
By only six strings to this world
Johnny Quest hates sellout bands
And Johnny pukes adrenaline
Johnny is an angry amputee
