about

"FTPOT" is the followup to 2009's 'R.E.M.' There is definitely a noticeable change in musical direction, all the while still having the same feel as its predecessor. I decided to try something new with this record and actually sing on some of the tracks (6 to be exact, including 1 spoken word track; track 2). Each song was inspired by something specific and it's usually evident in the title. Production of the album went fairly quick, and was actually completed by november 2009, but I decided to wait 4 months to release it because I wasn't fond of the idea of having released 2 records in the same year.

Logophile with a passion for music.
Melophile with a passion for words.

Inspired by all things everything.

I would describe my sound as a combination of electronic, ambient, experimental, and alternative. There may occasionally be hints of indie and maybe even avant-garde in there somewhere, as well. Maybe.

Track Name: One-Sided Dialogue
I still remember the day
I don't know if you do
But you should

You cost someone a life that day (almost)
Not physically, but
Mentally and socially

And it's all your fault
How does that make you feel?

Hello?
Are you still tuning in?
Am I coming through clearly?
I think you should apologize right now
And do it sincerely

Let her know you mean it

Even though no amount of words
From your disgusting, scummy mouth could ever make up
For what you've done
And who you've hurt

Do not undermine me
Listen: I say stop

I'm still giving you shit
Four years later
Because you deserve it
And your actions have been perpetuated
By the follow-up
And there's nothing you can do to take it back
And I don't expect you to try

I promise, I'm not joking
And when I say to stop
When I tell you to let it go, to leave it be
I mean it: just leave it alone
Go away
Goodbye
Track Name: Field of Green
In a field of green
Where will you be?

Could you say it again this time?
(Could you say it again for me?)
I think I might have missed something
The first time around

In a field of green
(In your field of green)
Where will you be?
Where will I be?

We are not so different as it may seem
My friends and I, we think alike
But whatever I say, it comes out mean
And when I try to apologize
They up and walk away
Why are things this way?
I really feel like they shouldn’t be

In a field of green
Where will you be?

Could you say it again this time?
(Could you say it again for me?)
I think I might have missed something
The third time around

In a field of green
(In your field of green)
Where will you be?
Where will I be?

In a field of blue
Would I be so lucky to have you?
Would I be so lucky?
(I don’t know, you tell me)

The leaves are falling down around me
The leaves are changing colors and falling all around you and me
It’s cardigan weather, so go get your sweater
And jump into a pile of leaves
Track Name: Reach For Me
Lyrics coming soon.
Track Name: Everybody Stop [Interlude]
Everybody STOP!
You see what you're doing to me?
You're fucking me up
I can't take it

I can't do this anymore
I just can't
Believe me
Track Name: Better Than Nothing (Maria Mena Cover)
I don't want to have to build this
I don't want to have to fit in
I don't want to have to need someone
But I do..

I don't want to have to attract boys
I don't want to have to be here
I don't want to have to eat to fill a hole
But I do..

But it's better than nothing at all
But it's better than nothing at all

I don't want to have to be angry at you
I don't want to have to blame it on my father
I don't want to feel sick around you
But I do..

I don't want to ever fall in love
I don't want to feel so insecure
I don't want to have to write this to explain
Still I do..

This feels better than nothing at all...
This feels better than nothing at all...
