about

This album was tracked at Strawberry Skys Recording Studio.
Overdubs and mixing were done at my house.

This album was never officially released due to the band parting ways soon after completion which is why in garners the cynical title of Cancelled.

Track Name: What You Wanted
There’s a noose stuck around your neck
And it’s choking you to sleep.

There’s knife sticking in my back
Like a compliment to me.

So what’d you know?
You decided to go and hide away
So I just sit here all alone
And waste away

So take me to the bottom when you go.

So you decided to go and hide away
So I just sit here all alone
And waste away.

Whoa!

Isn’t this what you wanted?
Isn’t this what you wanted from the start?
Track Name: Remission
You make it sound so simple.
Lying with your good intentions.
And I can almost sound it out.
Lying with my own ambitions.

And I’ve been losing faith
In the cross that I have made.
And you’ve been saving face
For all the wrong reasons.

Make you sorry now
That we lost transmission.
Make you sorry now
But it is in remission.

You crawl around your friends at night.
Telling them all your secrets.
And I could stand around and fight
If anyone would listen.

And I’ve been losing faith
In the cross that I have made.
And you’ve been saving face
For all the wrong reasons.

Make you sorry now
That we lost transmission.
Make you sorry now
But it is in remission.

You try to take it all away.
All of your broke confessions.
If you could make it right today
I’d stay on the path I’ve chosen.
Track Name: 1993
Sometimes I sound like a broken record
Spittin out a beat.
Down and out by myself
Cause no one’s ever listening.
To the sounds that sound like the memories of forgotten days.
Just like the radio in 1993.
So sing a song for me.
Wrote down by the broken hearted and lifestyle that we once started.

Knocked down but bot throwing in the towel just yet.
Those nights are over did you forget?
We’re not going to die just yet.

Sometimes I swear I can feel the static
Reaching out to me.
Down and out by myself
You can almost feel it traveling.

To the sounds that sound like the memories of forgotten days.
Just like the radio in 1993.
So sing a song for me.
Wrote down by the broken hearted and lifestyle that we once started.

Knocked down but bot throwing in the towel just yet.
Those nights are over did you forget?
We’re not going to die just yet.

A better plan is always nice.
But I don’t care for your advice.
And I want to go my separate way.
And I don’t I don’t care what you have to say.

Knocked down but bot throwing in the towel just yet.
Those nights are over did you forget?
We’re not going to die just yet.
Track Name: For What It's Worth
I’m writing these words down for yesterday.
I’m saving my goodbyes till I have nothing to say.

For what it’s worth
You had the world in the palm of your hands.
Another case of easy come and easy go.
And you can try to spill the blood on my hands.
But it won’t take away your sorrow.

I’ll lay this down to sleep
When you will lie with me.
The past is easy to forget
But the words remain with me.

For what it’s worth
You had the world in the palm of your hands.
Another case of easy come and easy go.
And you can try to spill the blood on my hands.
But it won’t take away your sorrow.

Time to let it go.
Cause I don’t know who you are
And it’s been years since I've seen your face.
And I probably wouldn’t recognize
A thing but how these year were such a waste.

And it’s a crying shame
When the path leads where you didn’t want to go.
And all these years we spent in silence
Memories becoming violent
Looking for a chance to let it go.

Cause I don’t know who you are
And it’s been years since I've seen your face.
And I probably wouldn’t recognize
A thing but how these year were such a waste.
Track Name: Holiday
Let’s celebrate your holiday.
We’ve worked a lifetime for these headaches.

And as the waves come crashing down
On every dream you’ve ever thought about.
We’ll save ourselves a lifetime
Of putting things in place
And we can feel our hearts with every broken bottle
That built this place.

And as the castles wash away
We laugh and curse this town as we ride away.

And as the waves come crashing down
On every dream you’ve ever thought about.
We’ll save ourselves a lifetime
Of putting things in place
And we can feel our hearts with every broken bottle
That built this place.
Cause you can always find a home.
And you can always find a way.
And you can bet your bottom dollar you will find some day.
Your holiday.
Track Name: Postcards
Heart drops and I pick it up again
Heart skips cause I know we’re only friends
And soon i know that I’m forgotten.
Mouth dry but I’m growing teeth again
Knocked out but I pick them up again
But soon I know that they’ll be rotten.

And i’ll find a way
To make my yesterday be my everything.
So I’ll sign the postcards line says
So sorry me.

Not dead but I’m sending wreaths again.
And now I’m starting to pretend
To see the time that i have lost
Dead sleep is now my only friend
Wake up with a letter left to send
But can’t break this coffin I’ve got in.

But I’ll find a way
To make my yesterday be my everything.
So I’ll sign the postcards line says
So sorry me.
Track Name: Difference
Doesn't everybody break apart sometimes?
Doesn’t everybody have an axe to grind?
And maybe it’s a path we have to choose.
And maybe it’s a song we sing
To lose ourselves again.

And the world is spinning round
But here i am got one foot on the ground.

Isn’t everybody innocent sometimes?
Isn’t everybody keeping hope alive
And maybe it’s a right you have to lose.
And maybe it’s a song we sing
To lose ourselves again.

And the world is spinning round
But here i am got one foot on the ground.
But that's ok
It shouldn’t make a difference at all.
It shouldn’t make a difference
It shouldn’t make a difference at all.
Track Name: Strings
“Strings hold the sadness and I hold the strings.”

Back to the back locked door.
Turn the key and keep repeating.
Trips to liquor store.
And trips to an empty bar.
I can keep my pockets empty.

I close my mouth to keep from breathing.
But another failed attempt.
Another tally mark.
And still I have
Well I have no hopes or goals.
I can’t find my heart or soul.
I just started feeling old about yesterday.
And the morning I awake from the day after
I made myself promise you.
That I’m leaving this place.
Yeah I’m leaving this place.
And I wish that you would stop me but I know you know
That I’m a waste.
Well now the train has come and gone.
But it wasn’t be here for long
I’ll be down and out I’m done.
Cause the truth’s elementary songs.
The truth are my closing arms.
We walked right up through the mess.
I couldn’t talk so you addressed the problems.
Now we’re feeling less.
So talk to me with sleep
And sleep right next to me.
Track Name: Always
Many I hope we will recover from all
The unjust we feel in this place
And everything that you see and read
Follow your TV screen till it make you duck run for cover now.

Cause all you are and all you see
Is all your world will ever be.
In all regards and all regrets
Save your time destroy the rest.

Late at night
While you fast asleep.
Laying down your memories
For the others to suffer.
And everything that you want to believe
And that you want to seek will make you duck run for cover now.

And all you are and all you see
Is all your world will ever be.
In all regards and all regrets
Save your time destroy the rest.
Always.

So step in line to raise your fist in the air!

And all you are and all you see
Is all your world will ever be.
In all regards and all regrets
Save your time destroy the rest.
Always.
Track Name: Goodnight
Goodnight to you all I've had enough of the noise.
Goodnight to you all I've had my fill of the world amplified.
And if you hear my song I sing alone then you'll know.
You'll know enough.
Cause yesterday feels dead 5 weeks ago.
Well there you go. I'm signing off.
And now my mind breaks down my brain again.
And so it goes the story told.
And aren't we just like everything we loathe?
You know it all to well, don't you know? You know it alls.
So goodnight to the critical.
