3:02PM - salt the earth (NEW SONG!)

dont you tell me bout lost causes
cause my lifes been losses
since i turned seventeen
three years later it gets no better
and i guess i better
be movin on
so wont someone tell me where ill find
what i want when
i finally find out what it is
untill that day ill just till this empty field
where some weeds
are the only things growing

salt the earth and sculpt us a sanctuary
on it we will sacrifice your love for me
blood falls down to cleanse this fallow ground
and ill start over again

wait is that what i meant when i first
planted the seeds of
discontent when we first met
im always falling for the wrong kinda girl
who always says well
maybe in a diferent world
so i was foolish to think that time
wouldnt take its toll on me
in the end
so i take this breath and i hold it in
untill i know that
i can breathe again

salt the earth and sculpt us a sanctuary
on it we will sacrifice your love for me
blood falls down to cleanse this fallow ground
and ill start over again

also i may be doing some recording with my good friend joe wk on friday. who knows.

9:37AM - can you see the sun make shapes (new lyrics)

saturday at practice zack and i revamped this song into a sorta pixies/elviscostello ish rocker as aposed to its previous country leanings. there is even the little sealabish drums for the chorus.

waking up to the shrieks of silence still takes some getting used to and the only thing that holds me up is this naked mattress that used to be draped in dreams of you and me but desperation surely makes the coldest cold seem comfortable and can you see the sun make shapes through sheets set to stop to stop to stop

change of place change of pace all this change changes nothing
same old simple solution seems to still slip my fingers

this home sweet home is still haunted by a handful of memories held in that house how the hell am i supossed to sleep when i still only share this bed with myself tell me why time is taking its own sweet time to tell me what to do maybe my mind can make heads or tails of the machinations set to stop to stop to stop to stop

(lead thingy)
(chorus repeating... fade out into nothing)

I love Ryan. And robots. Robots are rad. But not as rad as Ryan.

That is all.
