about

These songs mean alot to us and have been in the works for over 6 years. You know, the writing process can be a little interesting. We have worked really hard for just over a year to put out this EP that we are very proud of. Please share with EVERYONE you think would like it. We dont wanna make money off the record sales, we wanna be able to come to a town near you and play. Much love

Track Name: Dilated World
Send me to a place where we haven’t lost our minds.
Where the people roam, like the animals, in natures’ arms, the speckled grain of time

Unwrap the gift because it’s what you deserve, the present is our time
The colors all unwind, the blue bounces off of her like a free falling bird

It takes a lot but I know that we will have our chance to shine
Cause I hear your voice, when I close my eyes, I can see your world, inside my mind

When we focus on this dilated world. It feels like home in this dilated world

And around the bend we stop to breathe the air form the sea, surrounded by the leaves fall into the earth, our vision takes its turn

Distracted by the difference of what is real, we feel how we feel
Our bloods our throne, inside our bones, it feels like home in this dilated world
When we focus on this dilated world

Like the silence of the rain that baths in the multicoloured glow
Twist and turn to calibrate the sound hat hides behind the tone
Cause we are the seeds that dream and wait for spring when we r underneath the snow

When we focus on this dilated world
It feels like home in this dilated world

(Second voice at the end is saying this)
The branches fall away
In the wake of the day
The tree of our life
Is just trying to survive
Trying to survive
Track Name: Open circuits
This is no accident, or coincidence, incidental chance or a second guess
Cause all these circumstances, they are occasional like the shapes and patterns when the sun begins to fall
Cause in the morning time I cant wait to see you rise
And if you hold my torch I will light you life

Life is a rollercoaster, it has its ups and downs
You can fell high when sober or in a lost and found
Searching for that perfect moment, yeah something you can call your own
Wired to the open circuits pulsing inside your soul
Breathe in candle light in lucid dreams of you and i
So when youre gone I just close my eyes

Please don’t let me go, please don’t let me go, please don’t let me go , please don’t let me go when we are old and grey and time isn running wild
I will bring you in and keep you safe and sound
I will bring you in and keep you safe and sound

In the cool night winter springs as summer starts to fall
And you lose time wondering who can have it all
Yeah you lose time wondering who can have it all
It feels like time just slips between the cracks
And it seems like love will love will yeah love will love will bring us back
Track Name: By your side
Say the lights go out and the city walls all fall down. Down the fire escape. Pull on the ladder and the hinges all break. So here we go again. The same old start with a different end. The colors fade away. The only thing different is the constant change. I just want you to know I am by your side. Yes I just want you to know I am by your side. So watch out for the third degree. The second you're caught I'll be the first to free. Your mind is tied in knots. Running in place don't know where to start. Let's just take awhile embarrass myself just to see you smile. The needle threads the stitch. If the lights go out i will hit that switch. Cause I just want you to know I am by your side. Yes I just want you to know I am by your side. Reasons tie and bind themselves to your heart. Like barnacles that find there homes in the dark. Washaway wash it all away. The morning sweats in the nights regrets life gets better when you make mistakes. I just want you to know I am by your side
Track Name: Piece of mind
I know id be alright, if I had a place to hide
Watching shadows as the day it past me by
I’d creep in from the darkness when my vision was impaired
So I didn’t have to see this world gone scared

And if you wanna be alone, go on
And I know it’s hard sometimes, just to find a piece of mind so just trust, undo and open your heart

The angles changed their minds to show you a light of life
Shining through your window to hear what is on your mind
Weakness did not return as hatred chased its tail
The air became thick as your soul set sail
And if you wanna be alone, go on
And I know its hard sometimes, just to find a piece of mind, so just trust, undo and open your heart

When the sun is out and the rain is gone you can see it all just from where you are from the ground below to the sky above you can have what you want if its what you love
And I know…….
Yeah I know……..
And I know………
Yeah I know……. And I know its hard sometimes, just to find and piece of mind, so just trust, undo and open your heart
Undo and open your heart
Undo and open your heart
Undo and open your heart
Undo and open your heart
Track Name: Silent silhouettes
Shooting stars are like the wishing wells of the sky
Cause if you look close, you might see some tonite
And questions asked are like, questions solved
Cause when she asks for love love answers her
And foolish games are played when there are too many rules
We were young at once trying to find the truth

Silhouettes survive through a darker disquise
Tracing maps of light where are bodies collide
Words fade away, like oxygen. Some say theyre done well I Im ready to begin
Cause evidence will prove that there is so much more to lose
We were young at once searching for the clues

Just creasing the corners, tearing the lines at the fold that separates
these words that define us, they are keeping the boxes closed so that they don't have to see us change into
who we are
Track Name: Rising coast
The empty side streets where im gone
Following the line of tree tops
The city landscapes its cost
But I know im far aaway
So I wash it all away

The water holds the current truth
The falling seeds spring the youth
There is nothing left for me to do
I am playing my cards
Under the stars ill lay them down

The jack of spades the queen of hearts
The diamonds fading in the dark
The king is praying for a spark
The ageless song plays again
While the broken parts try to mend
Out on the rising coast
The sea tide sinks its toes
Fill It up while youre alone
Be my friend yeah be my friend again
