about

I've always had interest in doing an acoustic version of one of my songs, so I used this opportunity to do so. Included is a song I wrote a long time ago, but never deemed worthy of extended release, until now.
As always, thanks for listening.

Track Name: Adults (Single)
Laying awake on a Thursday night, why get out of bed at all?
When everyone's off in the land of the malcontent?
Rabid canines and persistent ex-lovers, in the company of the liars' chiefs
Painting pictures on the canvas for the fools

The covers leave and they run together
Out of the dead, pale land
Consuming the laughter and the tainted decisions
And in a hazy hurry, is this what growing up feels like?

Pretentious words for the silent deaf make little of what they're worth
Tainted by the will to be coherent
But with liquid gold and a flaming heart
An a ability to set this world apart
Engulfed in the embers of a party long burned out

Feverish and empty I still am running
After the ball, fresh kicked in the park
Feverish and empty I still am running
After the future I thought I could rise above

It starts to wilt, and it flies away from us
Grasping at the things we used to love
We fade away, and we're grabbing onto straws
As we sink into this glass of age and smoke

Feverish and empty we're all still running
After the youth long lost in the park
Feverish and empty we're all still running
After the future we thought we could rise above

A burned out star on its cold way out
Another trip on the roundabout
A foreign youth with a cherished pout

Adults too far faded to save them now.

Track Name: Bed
You look so adoringly up at him when you embrace, you always lose track of time
And when you're sitting alone and silence fills your ears, wait for him to say his lines
On the way back to his place, you worry, "What will I do next?"
You're just along for the ride

And do you stop and wonder what happens when the lights are out?
More painful dark romancing and losing ways to explain

Your hands lock just outside, and you run through the door again, with different motives this time
He drags you into the room, his fingers brushing your skin
Oh God, will this ever end?

He slips off her dress
And throws her on the bed
I wish all this would end

He's stealing all my hopes right now and taking them to bed with him
He's crushing all my hopes right now by getting into bed with her

And do you stop and wonder what happens when the lights are gone?
More wishing that you were mine

You know I stop and wonder what happens when I realize

That you'll never be mine.
