about

OZ-036

"The first three of these recordings are out of five that Justin and I recorded during the second pass I had at recording a full length. I tried to do one in Missouri with the same songs and it took too long, so when I went back down to Texas, I tried to do it again, but by that point all of this shit was so dated that there was no point. I figured I'd just write new songs and do it myself real quick. The forth song on this is something Ray and I did that Justin found and remastered while we were recording. The last two are just some shit I recorded in my apartment. I sat on all of this forever and figured that some of it should see the light of day, so I put this little bit up. Hope ya like it."

Track Name: I Wish I'd Been Nicer
What are you looking for? Would you please pick a door; 1, 2, or 3?
I'll help you find it if you like, but I can only help to the best of my ability
It's like you were flying a kite, but now you can't keep it off the ground to save your life
It's like everybody is drowning, but only in your eyes

So wake up from your horrible nightmare and run a brush through your beautiful grey hair
Get ready to face the day, mentally prepare in your own personal way
Your mind: Such a beautiful find... How I hate to see it being lost when fear makes you blind
It's like you can't even remember how you used to be so kind

But everyone else does
You act like we're killing you
You're acting so crazy
I hope you don't think that I don't love you
I hate to see you go
I just thought that you should know

There are so many questions that I don't think that I could ever ask you
Before the worst happens
This may be a test I'm not sure that I want to pass
With this, how can you quietly sit?
How many cigarettes did you smoke before you quit?
You sip on Heaven 'til no more can pass your lips

But I still love you so much, I dread the day I can no longer feel your touch
Sometimes life isn't fun, but if you wallow alone, then you've got nowhere to run
Or hide. You know I've been crying.
I don't know what I'm gonna do on the day you die
I guess I'll think of all of my lies and I'll cry and cry and cry

But you'll never leave my heart, I know you'll always be with me
I know I'll never be alone, but oh my god, I'll be so lonely
I hate to see you go
I just thought that you should know
Track Name: September 16th, 2014
Every light was green driving back from drinking with Turner after work, and everything was perfect. I stopped in at the store so I could buy some more beer, and when I got home, you were in bed resting your beautiful head so I got drunk and watched TV alone while you were sleeping, and in a moment of silent reprieve, I felt suddenly incomplete.

So Wednesday, fate (happened inevitably), and you told me things that I wont reiterate, so Thursday, I got drunk again with Dakota, Denver, and Cameron. It was so naive to think that this could never happen to me, and I know that you feel the same...But neither one of us is to blame 'cause we're just kids making mistakes, experiencing aches and pains, and I've never had somebody make me feel so fucking great, heart aflame.

To work you go, I can see your skin glow. You're my most favorite person I know, and this problem that brings us both woe will only make my love for you grow.

'Cause we're just kids making mistakes, experiencing aches and pains, and I've never had somebody make me feel so fucking great, heart aflame.
Track Name: Sophia
I feel ashamed that I still think of you sometimes
New information has revealed itself, now it's stuck inside my mind
You called me emotionless, told others I wasn't real
Honestly, I can't even begin to fathom how you think that I can't feel

I know that someday, we will all get ours
It's freezing in my new home, but it's burning where you are
I'm so glad I escaped from you

I heard it all weeks ago through a better friend
It makes me sad to know that you and I had a bitter end
I should have known the way you spoke of other boys
Alas, I refused to go, as your smile was so coy

I know that someday, we will all get ours
It's freezing in my new home, but it's burning where you are
I'm so glad I escaped from you

Shameful muse, why you?

I know that someday, we will all get ours
It's freezing in my new home, but it's burning where you are
I know that someday, we will all get ours
It's freezing in my new home, but it's burning where you are
I'm so glad I escaped from you
Track Name: All My Trials (Traditional)
I had a little book, was given to me
And every page spoke liberty
All my trials, Lord, soon be over

There is a tree in paradise
And the pilgrims call it the Tree of Life
All my trials, Lord, soon be over

But it's too late, my friend
Too late, but never mind
All my trials, Lord, soon be over

If religion were a thing that money could buy,
Then the rich would live and the poor would die
All my trials, Lord, soon be over
All my trials, Lord, soon be over
Track Name: Children II (Demo)
Basking in your words, we were oh-so young
It seems that everyone wants to be someone other than themselves
We were terrified, we were dumb, and we knew nothing else

But when we're fifteen, we feel pretty
Like a cold 40 oz. or a dollar about to be spent
When we're fifteen, I guess we're just children once again
Kids who forget that five years before, they were ten
Just children once again
Children 'til the end

Hammering the strings, we would scream 'til dawn about politics
Of which, we knew nothing
And of broken hearts. True love was foreign to us back then
Seemingly lovely, yet lonely and stark

But when we're fifteen, we feel witty
By mispronouncing Descartes and quoting the Smiths
When we're fifteen, I guess we're just children once again
Kids who just wanna grow up but who aren't quite sure of when
Just children once again
Children 'til the end

Living off the fat of someone else
Another place, another hell
A different us
It was probably so much more different than I remember it

'Cause when we're fifteen, we're so silly
And everything feels so much bigger than it actually is
When we're fifteen, I guess we're just children once again
Kids who are too old to smile but much too young to find zen
Just children once again
Children 'til the end
Track Name: The Wino Boys Do It Again (Demo)
Just a few years older, a jaded rock n' roller, he pleas,
"Shiraz made me do it! Everything is stupid to me."

The Wino Boys do it again
We watched her cry
Hanging out in our heroin den
While it rains outside

Always quitting smoking, I thought that she was joking at first
What a friendly summer, all of us were dying of thirst

It has become a fond memory, living to die
Waking up each morning anew wondering why she cried

We all went on our separate ways, leading different lives
I sure would love to hear their voices again

I sure would love to hear their voices again
