about

This short EP is a Valentine's Day present to my amazing girlfriend. It's made up of songs i wrote for her, about her, and a cover that she likes. Not only that, but IF YOU CHOOSE TO PAY FOR THIS EP, ALL OF THE MONEY WILL GO TO V-Day, a women centered charity who's mission statement describes them as "a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls." because I know that Tayler would like that.

Track Name: Red Line by The Broadways by Seethruskin
This is the first song i ever wrote that was only about tayler. its really gushy and pop punk but, ya know, fuck it.

You are the realest thing I have yet to know
Even when I don't believe in much
You are the thing that keeps me conscious and standing
When my mind is on a broken crutch
And your smiles the prettiest thing I've seen since I first learned to stare at you
You make me feel less lonely when I'm feeling alone
The greatest thing that you could ever do
And I could watch your hands scribble for hours,
While I sing you songs you've never heard
And everything you says a symphony
Music buried in every word
And I can and have gotten lost in every curl that's on your head
And every moment that you let me spend with you
Is one where I feel so much less dead


When you bury your face in my chest,
When you tell me that I'm something more
When you squeeze my hands or stare at me
Or you make my jaw hit the fucking floor
I've become attached to the smell my sweatshirts get when you borrow them from me
I don't think that I can get over you,
You're the most beautiful thing I've ever seen
Track Name: I'm Purgatory (I'm Fucking Purgatory)
i wrote this song over the summer for an album that i never made. that album was the first thing i wrote since i'd gotten with tayler in may so there were a few references to her in the lyrics. this is the first one i wrote for that so it's the first time i mentioned her in a song. also i think she liked this song alot. i hope.

My mode of speech consists of mumbles dripping through yellow teeth
Made up of words containing frames but nothing underneath
These volts are static my spine needs
These images blur just like my concentration on these yellow goddamn leaves
And trusting everyone is something I'm less comfortable with
But it's a habit
Gruesome at best
I stitch my wounded hands, pack cuts with mud and wet cement
As her mouth leaves marks all on my chest


A piss pour attitude
To match my piss poor melody
Stumbling hands grasp hard for a coping that's abandoned me
These broken wings are nothing, a shallow metaphor for a better way to say that I'm still hating myself


So in songs of standing tall on scabbing knees on broken bones
I find myself a better form, less worn and needing sleep
The concrete pumps it's life into my feet and I'm dehydrated
Passing in and out of pausing scenes
And in piano keys and in the hollow body of guitars
I'll be reclusive in the strings
Just a broken headlight of a star
My buried friends
I'm at it once again
I'd better go, my fucking head won't stop


I'm dead before 16
I'm every record in between
Your favorite and your least
I'm the broken hopes of American dreams
I am the gashed wound on your head
Bleeding soft and still comforting red
I'm purgatory
I'm fucking purgatory
Track Name: Another Girl, Another Planet (The Only Ones cover)
i showed tayler this song and all gushyness aside, she likes when i sing it. personally, i always liked the blink-182 version best. oh, or the replacements. that one was pretty fucking cool.

Always flirt with death
I could kill but I don't care about it
I can face your threats
Stand up tall and scream and shout about it

I think I'm on another world with you
I'm on another planet with you

You always get under my skin
I don't find it irritating
You always play to win
I don't need rehabilitating

Another girl, another planet
Another girl, another planet

Space travel's in my blood
And there ain't nothing I can do about it
Long journeys wear me out but
Oh god, you know we won't live without it

Another girl is loving me now
Another planet forever holding me down
Another planet
