"Each of the 4 songs on this EP is a work of musical art in its own right. Each track is a bonafide hit." -innercitygeeks.com

Track Name: The Tower
Yeah you! Stay frightened to the bone
Curtain call for all who try to leave this zone
Orders are to take out anyone who goes
Past this sign “Warning! Warning! Exits have been closed.”

Yeah, I can hear you – I can see your side
I won’t get caught in the riptide

Crawl to the top of the world
Looking down on the sea of faces below
And when the sections of stone start to fall
We’re dismantling this Berlin Wall

Yeah you! Stay known as “The Unknown”
In your head hums a low rumbling drone
Don’t allow a hint of emotion to show
You’re a soldier – time to let all your feelings go

Yeah, I can hear you – I can see your side
But on this wrecking ball I’ll ride

Crawl to the top of the world
Looking down on the sea of faces below
And when the sections of stone start to fall
We’re dismantling this Berlin Wall

(string bridge)

Crawl to the top of the world
Looking down on the sea of faces below
And when the sections of stone start to fall
We’re dismantling this Berlin Wall

Crawl to the top of the world
Looking down on the sea of faces below
And when the sections of stone start to fall
We’re dismantling this Berlin Wall

We’re dismantling this Berlin Wall…
Track Name: Nine
(It) Starts with a splash
Here and there
This could be anything

I’ll put on some jazz
Get the wheels
In my head rolling, yeah

Now I’m at peace
This work will bleed
A part of me

I see this canvas
Turning red
Turning red
The wheels are spinning now
In my head
In my head

I feel like this
painting tells my pain
These colors are all
crashing down like rain

I could do that
in my sleep
This doesn’t speak to me
You picked up a can
Spilled some paint
And now ya think you’re deep

This art is weak
Don’t work for me
And it’s so bleak

I hear these harsh words
I’m turning red
Turning red
I put my soul into this
Now it’s dead
Now it’s dead, yeah


I feel like this
painting tells my pain
These colors are all
crashing down like rain, rain yeah

Feeling, feeling myself fall again
Fall again, my love
Feeling, feeling myself fall again
Fall again, my love…
Track Name: Planets
Well, I’m 3 drinks in
I had kept my thoughts at bay
But it’s around New Year’s Day

Yeah, the phone rang loud
Was gonna lay my head
Picked up the call instead

I was overwhelmed
By what I heard then
And I just heard it again

Glad I got to know you
We had just become good friends in the fall
Look, you made the local news
Searching for life on other planets
But why ain’t there life here at home?

It was our freshman year
We were trying to find our way
Hanging out on the holiday

Just a few drinks in
You stumbled on the street
But the driver had you beat

Families overwhelmed
And I’m dressed in gray
I don’t know what to say

Glad I got to know you
We had just become good friends in the fall
Look, you made the local news
Searching for life on other planets
But why ain’t there life here at home?

This autograph
This autograph
Now it’s everything, yeah
This autograph
This autograph
Now it’s everything, yeah

Glad I got to know you
We had just become good friends in the fall
Look, you made the local news
Searching for life on other planets
But why?

Glad I got to know you
We had just become good friends in the fall
Look, you made the local news
Searching for life on other planets
But why ain’t there life here at home?
Track Name: Stay Home
I remember when I was young
Man, it still sounds dumb
I was scared

Of putting myself out there
Take a risk you dare
But I won’t

Crowd gathers to hear my song
Here it comes my poem
Ready go!

But I’m reaching the chords too slow
Now my mind’s been towed
And I’m gone

But if a small bit of luster
Is about all you can muster
Then you’re done!

Don’t go outside again
Stay home, stay home
It’s so cozy in this den
Stay home, stay home
Don’t go outside, outside again

I would travel through rain and snow
Just to reach my show
No one’s there

Or open up for some half-baked clowns
Booed from town to town
Way to go

But I’ll just keep doing my thing
And it’s bound to sting
But I’m a smile

Cause I’m seeing a face out there
An empathetic stare
Good as gold

But if a small bit of luster
Is about all you can muster
Then you’re done!

Don’t go outside again
Stay home, stay home
It’s so cozy in this den
Stay home, stay home
Don’t go outside, outside again

Afraid of your own shadow
Spine is soft and hollow
Afraid of your own shadow

Don’t go outside again
Stay home, stay home
It’s so cozy in this den
Stay home, stay home
Don’t go outside, outside again
Don’t go outside, outside again
Don’t go outside, outside again!
Track Name: House On The Moon
I live up in my head, always
So long, sending myself – far away
Got a house here on the moon
Only for me – sorry no room

I roam all the chambers of this place
Settle down and focus where there’s space
Got a house here on the moon
Only for me – sorry no room

I rush to this world that I’ve found
Take this flag and drive it into the ground
Got a house here on the moon
Only for me – sorry no room
