about

This record is dedicated to anyone who has something to say but no way of saying it. It gets easier every time you open your mouth.

When you buy (EASYFORYOUTOSAY) here on Bandcamp.com instead of iTunes or in stores, more of your money goes directly to us, the band. That cash goes straight to paying our bills, staying out on the road and recording more new music ... for you!

Bandcamp.com allows you to "Name Your Price". If you believe recorded music is worth paying for, or even if you just want to put smiles on our faces, feel free to pay a little more than $10. Or a lot more. It's up to you!

Track Name: Pressure & Poison
Fallin’
Going deeper than you planned, it’s slipping through your hands
Darlin’, something’s stirring in his eyes
You can’t see it, ‘cause you’re so blind

Whoa, whoa
He’s got his fingers on your skin
He’s killing you again, darling
Whoa, whoa
With his pressure and poison
He’s killing you again, darling

Oh no, dirty little secrets
Hiding behind everything he says
Hiding behind everything he says

Whoa, whoa
He’s got his fingers on your skin
He’s killing you again, darling
Whoa, whoa
With his pressure and poison
He’s killing you again, darling

He’s killing you, oh
You don’t even know
He’s killing you, oh

Whoa, whoa
He’s got his fingers on your skin
He’s killing you again, darling
Whoa, whoa
With his pressure and poison
He’s killing you again, darling
Track Name: Better Now Together
Isolated from the sound
Lookin’ for a hand, but nobody’s around now
The sky is bleeding red, raining on our dreams again
We can’t stop now

Hey, here we go, here we go again
Scream our lungs out forever
Hey, here we go, here we go again
We’re better now together

There’s a line drawn in the sand
With the bones of those who didn’t understand that
All these roads are leading to a cliff where we’re all falling down
We’re falling down

Hey, here we go, here we go again
Scream our lungs out forever
Hey, here we go, here we go again
We’re better now together

This is all we know, so sing it to us slowly

Here we go, here we go

Here we go, here we go again
Scream our lungs out forever
Hey, here we go, here we go again
We’re better now together
We’re better now together
Track Name: Electricity
When you left my lights went out
And like a shiver up my spine
I felt the static fade when you said goodbye

The way you loved me ruined me for more
I’m dying for a spark
‘Cause I feel you like a million volts in my heart

Every time you’re with me, I can feel it
Like lightning, electricity
I wanna feel you one more time
Electricity

Other lips never taste as sweet
And no love can compare
No kiss can leave me so completely electric

Every time you’re with me, I can feel it
Like lightning, electricity
I wanna feel you one more time
Electricity

Before this flash of light ends
I wanna feel you in my bones and skin again
Falling in your eyes, lighting up the skies
Tell me that you feel like I do

Every time you’re with me, I can feel it
Like lightning, electricity
I wanna feel you one more time
I wanna feel you one more time
Electricity, electricity

Every time you’re with, everything you’re with me
Track Name: Our Happy Ending
No words could describe the way we’re feeling
Our hearts speak in whispers, no one can hear
Dark nights can steal a love while it’s sleeping
Don’t ever leave me, darlin’ stay right here
Stay right here

Keep me safe from every single doubt
‘Cause I’m no good with love songs
So help me write our happy ending

My selfish heart has been so reckless
But this love is something that I’ve never known
You’re my last hope of never-ending love
Hold me close and we’ll keep it from growing cold
From growing cold

Keep me safe from every single doubt
‘Cause I’m no good with love songs
So help me write ours
Keep me safe from all my restless thoughts
‘Cause I’m no good without you
So help me write our happy ending

So beautiful, so perfect
From here til forever, this song is ours
This songs is ours

So keep me safe from every single doubt
‘Cause I’m no good with love songs
So help me write ours
Keep me safe from all my restless thoughts
‘Cause I’m no good without you
So help me write our happy ending
So help me write our happy ending
Track Name: Brighter Days
Oh, the sky is fallin’
I could see this coming
Something tells me that we’re not alone
Tick tock, the clocks around us
Never gave us time to grow up
Something tells me that tomorrow’s gone

Take me back to brighter days
Further from this fighting, further from this place
I’m desperate for yesterday, I know you’re waiting
Tell me where to go, take me home
Take me home

Now I’m in the hot seat
Now all eyes are on me
And everywhere I run, I leave a warning sign
The violence surrounds me but these broken buildings
They remind me of a better life
A better life

Take me back to brighter days
Further from this fighting, further from this place
I’m desperate for yesterday, I know you’re waiting
Tell me where to go, take me home
Take me home

Something deep inside tells me I’ll survive
I got some fight left in me
Through this quiet cold, suddenly I’ve found hope
That we will see brighter days
That we will see brighter days

Take me back to brighter days
Further from this fighting, further from this place
I’m desperate for yesterday, I know you’re waiting
Tell me where to go, take me home
Tell me where to go and take me home
Take me home, take me home
Track Name: Ladder
You pull me in, I pull away
You ask why I don’t stay longer
You got steps leading up to your heart
But somehow I can’t climb that far
I never could

You’re everything that’s right
But I know I’m wrong

Girl, I wanna raise your standards higher
So you can see that
I’m only halfway up your ladder
Don’t waste your time on me, baby

You’re saying words I wanna hear
But still my feelings aren’t so clear, oh
And this castle’s crumbling to the floor
And I wish that I could give you more
But I never could

You’re everything that’s right
But I know I’m wrong

Girl, I wanna raise your standards higher
So you can see that
I’m only halfway up your ladder
Don’t waste your time on me, baby
Don’t waste your time on me, baby
Track Name: Supercomputer
There’s nowhere I can call home
These cities are in the Clouds
There’s nothing left to my name
It belongs to the system now

I can’t run and I know I can’t hide
There’s nowhere I can go where he won’t find me

Keep me safe from the future
On the run from Supercomputer
He’s in my head, he knows my name
I gotta get, get, get away
I’m on the run from Supercomputer

I gotta cut the cables
Sever all communication
Assimilating has begun, feel like I’m the final

And my face is on his radar screen
There’s nowhere I can go where he won’t find me

Keep me safe from the future
On the run from Supercomputer
He’s in my head, he knows my name
I gotta get, get, get away
I’m on the run from Supercomputer

I miss my heart, I miss my lungs
He took my life, he took my love
On the run from Supercomputer

So keep me safe from the future
On the run from Supercomputer

Keep me safe from the future
On the run from Supercomputer
He’s in my head, he knows my name
I gotta get, get, get away
I’m on the run from Supercomputer
I’m on the run from Supercomputer
Track Name: The Communication Breakdown
This one dream has been left open-ended
‘Cause I can’t find a way to tell where you it starts
I got these feelings but I can’t seem to tell you how I feel
And release everything that’s trapped inside my heart

Hear the words I wanna say
Dyin’ to communicate
Stuck inside this breakdown
I wanna say it but can’t get it out

My tongue has been tied for as long as I can remember
But I can’t find a way to make you let me speak my mind
I got these things inside but these words feel like concrete in my mouth

Hear the words I wanna say
Dyin’ to communicate
Stuck inside this breakdown
I wanna say it but can’t get it out
I wanna say it but can’t get it out

I can’t get it out

My eyes will speak these words that come out broken
My answer to your question is still unspoken
And if I stop short, then I’ll write it down
And put it through your radio so you hear me somehow

Hear the words I wanna say
Dyin’ to communicate
Stuck inside this breakdown
I wanna say, I-I wanna say it

Hear the words I wanna say
Dyin’ to communicate
Stuck inside this breakdown
I wanna say it but can’t get it out
I wanna say it but can’t get it …
Track Name: Closer
It’s hard to believe that I could be so destructive
I’m feelin’ like every night I’m further from myself
My eyes are open wide, I’m desperate for a light

I need to be closer, I’m looking for
Someone to lead me to another door
One foot and then the other, over and over
‘Til I’m a little closer to what I’m looking for

You wait for me silently from a distance, say something
All this time I thought I knew the secret, oh
I can’t do this anymore
And I’ve been here before

I need to be closer, I’m looking for
Someone to lead me to another door
One foot and then the other, over and over
‘Til I’m a little closer to what I’m looking for

Daylight is coming, I’m tossin’ and turnin’
I know I’m not guilty but somehow I’m not innocent
Oh, I’m not innocent

I need to be closer, I’m looking for
Someone to lead me to another door
One foot and then the other, over and over
‘Til I’m a little closer to what I’m looking for
To what I’m looking for, to what I’m looking for
Track Name: Your Name in Vain
There’s something inside my heart
Feelings that I can’t explain
Every time I write this down
It feels so insincere now

Words written on my lips
I’m burnin’ rhyme right through this paper
And looking for excuses
Oh God, just let me stand for something

With this simple song, I’m screaming this prayer
Let your heart be revealed in here
And every time I sing your name
Let it not be your name in vain

I’m drowning in these airwaves
Can I find you in these oceans?
Are you even here at all?
‘Cause the first time your name came through my lips
It had a better ring to it

With this simple song, I’m screaming this prayer
Let your heart be revealed in here
And every time I sing your name
Let it not be your name in vain

Put words in my mouth and I’ll sing them
But I’m afraid that I don’t believe them
Whoa, I don’t wanna say it if it tastes like poison

With this simple song, I’ll whisper this prayer
Let your heart be revealed in here
And every time I sing your name
Let it not be your name in vain

With this simple song, I’m screaming this prayer
Let your heart be revealed in here
And every time I sing your name
Let it not be your name in vain
When I sing your name
Let it not be your name in vain
Track Name: Electricity (Acoustic)
When you left my lights went out

Electricity

Every time you’re with me, I can feel it

I wanna feel you one more time
Electricity, electricity

Track Name: Pressure & Poison (Acoustic)
Fallin’
Going deeper than you planned, it’s slipping through your hands
Darlin’, something’s stirring in his eyes
You can’t see it, ‘cause you’re so blind

Whoa, whoa
He’s got his fingers on your skin
He’s killing you again, darling
Whoa, whoa
With his pressure and poison
He’s killing you again, darling

Oh no, dirty little secrets
Hiding behind everything he says
Hiding behind everything he says

Whoa, whoa
He’s got his fingers on your skin
He’s killing you again, darling
Whoa, whoa
With his pressure and poison
He’s killing you again, darling

He’s killing you, oh
You don’t even know
He’s killing you, oh

Whoa, whoa
He’s got his fingers on your skin
He’s killing you again, darling
Whoa, whoa
With his pressure and poison
He’s killing you again, darling
Track Name: _
I miss my heart, I miss my lungs
I miss the colour of my blood
Miss my skin, miss my name
I know I’m the man to blame

I lost myself when building high
This mighty machine to reach the sky
Supercomputer bore his screen
Hungry for souls, hungry for me

He took my life, he took my love
He changed the colour of my blood
He ate my friends, he hate my God
Locked up in Clouds up above

Now I hide from all of his steel
I fight to keep my right to feel
Keep me safe from the future
I’m on the run from Supercomputer
I’m on the run from Supercomputer
I’m on the run from Supercomputer
