Lately I’ve been feeling lost My minds Made up My bags are packed I’m gone And leaving this town I’ve been feeling so afraid Of losing time and wasting all my youth On being young I ain’t talking ‘bout The way that things been goin’ dear I’ve been thinking ‘bout The future every day There’s a part of me That always wants the answers I should just try Living in the moment for a change Take me out to see the country My old friends in western massachusetts know It’s the only place i’ve ever called home I ain’t talkin’ bout the way that things been goin’ dear I’ve been thinking bout my constant need to change Every month it seems I’m wearing different outfits And my fashion sense Reflects my mental state Take me out to see the country My old friends in Western Massachusetts thrive I want to live a simpler life I ain’t talkin’ bout The ways that things been shapin’ up I’m just trying Not to lose myself most days I’m delusional if I think there’s an answer Round the corner If it’s there It’s miles away

Day Plan 03:46
Go on get going with your day plan I’ve been up early looking forward To the time when I get home Most evenings I’m fine talking to myself She fits in Regardless That this one bedroom apartment Don’t hold much And if you asked me to tell you Why I don’t believe in A goddamn religion And all that might mean well I’m learning that deep down I don’t trust myself so What good would A god do now I told my neighbor I was lonesome Pete it’s been half-hearted That i’ve tried to set up my furniture To seem like A grown ass man lives here I’m pretending to try But I don’t really care And if you asked me to tell you Why I don’t believe in A goddamn religion And all that might mean well I’m learning that deep down I don’t trust myself so What good would A god do now And I don’t like myself much These days I’m trying not to think ahead so much And let these things play out but My anxiety Won’t let me sleep Won’t let you leave And if you asked me to tell you Why I don’t believe in A goddamn religion And all that might mean well I’m learning that deep down I don’t trust myself so What good would A god do now Go on get going with your day plan

Beauty Queen 03:13
Beauty Queen She was my whole October That girl I never saw coming Think she might be my drug I was basically sober Six months A year I could’ve gone But her eyes shoot me up with something And i didn’t think that i would fall this hard My god this girl This beauty queen she knows That I Can’t breathe Her hold On my neck My shoulders, arms and back, She plays me like a tambourine And I don’t think she means To be that mean And i just try to remember My heart don’t match what my head knows She drives me more Then half wild Stayin’ up past my bedtime They say no good comes from late nights I should go home Go to sleep Stop talkin’ but I didn’t think that i would fall this hard My god this girl This beauty queen she knows That I Can’t breathe Her hold On my neck My shoulders, arms and back, She plays me like a tambourine And I don’t think she means To be that mean You’ve got a long way to go until you figure this out I’m really trying not to lose myself You’re all the wrong kind of trouble Got me so full of doubts I’m really trying not to lose myself And you’re a whole lot of messy So i’m just bowing out I’m really trying not to lose it I’m trying not to lose it I’m trying not to lose it Now My god this girl This beauty queen she knows That I Can’t breathe Her hold On my neck My shoulders, arms and back, She plays me like a tambourine And I don’t think she means To be that mean

Give It a Try There she is A masterpiece My mona lisa In real life But she don’t have a clue Bout’ what she wants It’s killing me to stand and wait With strangers who just want to take Your picture Never lowering their phones So give it a try Give it a try Give it a try Look her in the eye Her in the eye Give it a try I didn’t even know her name That girl behind the painting seemed so distance Pretty clear that she’s a mess That back and forth the push and pull It drives me up the wall but still She makes me crazy Day to day I don’t know how she feels So give it a try Give it a try Give it a try Just tell me goodbye Tell me goodbye Tell me goodbye Every part of me still wishes that You felt the way i do But you don’t So i’m doing you a favor Walking myself out the door If you won’t There she is a masterpiece She’s hard to get to know but she’s Not just another painting on the wall I’m not the only one who sees it Fighting crowds for her to notice me And it’s not healthy so I think i’ll move along And give it a try Give it a try Give it a try Getting on with my life On with my life I’ll give it a try

about

Every one of these songs was written, produced and recorded during this pandemic.
5 songs written 4 the end of the world.

From Day Plan to Met On The Internet, this record authentically traverses the landscape of the intense highs and lows that have made up my year.

After years of being on the road non-stop, playing any brewery or coffee shop that would take me, sleeping in my car, seeing some incredible places, and making the coolest friends, I decided to take this rare time of pause to live alone, void of distractions, and dedicate myself to most authentically realizing my artistic and creative vision.

I started trusting my gut and decided to always try to be unapologetically myself.

On the flip side, I had a total mental breakdown and discovered what it really means to hit a breaking point. It’s been one of the hardest years of my life.

But what came out of it is a collection of songs I’m incredibly proud of.
