Brian McCue It kind of sounds like the drummer recorded this with his shirt off? It's okay I guess. 10/10 Favorite track: Out of My Head.

This EP represents a sort of end of an era for us. These are the last songs we wrote that were part of the "old stuff" category. They're pretty long, and fairly exploratory, at least by our standards, but hopefully that won't stop you from enjoying them.

Track Name: In My Head
i don't think I'm broken
i'm broken don't think i
(there's so much i forgot to do)
can take more of this
but this can take more of me
(there's a lot i need to tell you)

i can't see you this way
you see this way i can't
(you're not the person that i knew)
imagine you here with me
you imagine me here with you
(i think it's safer in my room)

i hate what is in my head
is my head what i hate
(i love the people i'm made of)
in my life could be so much more
could life be anymore?
Track Name: Rockadoodledoo
i think if you gave me something more to work with
somehow we'd be pulling ourselves up from where we

i'm losing you, you're falling through
save your skin, let me in

hang on, fuck this, why can't you just listen to me?
i'm exhausted, can we forget that we could be

i am blinded by the light screaming quietly out from your eyes
oh i'm losing myself in the space in between you and i tonight
Track Name: Out of My Head
stole a couch one night, coming home from a show
we drowned in our misconceptions, life moved slow
neck deep in a trash can, and blood in your nose
every night inside, something desperate grows

i called you again, drunk and out of my head
you should have been pissed, but you came instead
you said you wanted to be close to people that night
we all wanted that, i think here we're gonna be alright

we ate soup and smoked, and drank a lot of shitty beer
watched the snow come down, everything was here
i meant it when i said i feel at home with you
there's nothing left inside, let it all break through

i spent a lot of nights wishing you would leave my room
but despite my selfish ways you would always assume
the best in me, the best things in all of us
i'm thinking i've been thinking the wrong way about love

And I have to believe that anything other than everything here
Can't be as good but it'll all get better every year
