Silent Scream Verse: How hard can we push Before it breaks down How far can we go Til it's too late to turn around Did you know that scene Would make you pay? The only thing you need is some time To find yourself today Bridge: I can see in your eyes you have got to be free You got something inside do you mind if I take a piece for me Chorus: Can you give your heart And say what you mean? It ain't no way to live To know that silent scream If you give your heart They might take a piece and leave Or you can keep your fear But don't keep that fear And start your silent scream Verse: How much can you take Til you hear that sound That voice in your head That tells you not to drown If it feels too small And it seems so far away Let it build let it build til Til you find yourself some change
Speak Fast 03:42
Speak fast Verse: We speak fast and hear slow The fears know What tears will show My minds in another state While I run in place my body still waits Now Some walk and some creep Some eyes are blind yet they still weep And I try to think how things can change But it seems the same It's all the same Chorus: I will find a way Don't you leave just yet it's not over Til I find a way To leave here forever Verse: A simple kid with simple thoughts In a simple life But its changed a lot So how do we know which way to turn the young don't learn Til they get burned Look how skin gets thick with age They said just wait But That times a waste So It seems they teach us to run and hide But that ain't right So lets leave tonight
I'm Gone 03:11
I'm gone Verse: I'm gone don't you stay We got to, get outta this place It's time for a change We don't need, any more days And life seems to be to tame Its got me, feeling so strange If I leave tonight will you stay We got to, get outta this place Chorus: We got to..get gone And Get your mind changed We got to get gone, step out can't wait another day Verse: I'd rather fall on my face Than waste, any more days Together we go the hard way I won't lie, there's gonna be pain But When you see the life that you made And think about, the path we take You might find a life you won't trade Can I be, any more plain
North from here Verse: I look outside Through eyes that won't cry And I just wait As I hold on to yesterday And you've gone away So I fill my time with the memory of those old days I know what's gone The light from my eyes as I sing you a sad sad song Chorus: In the morning I can't rise And I swear that I really try Now they say that I just need time But you've gone north So I sit and I just stare For signs that you were here And I know that life's not fair...cause your north from here. Verse: It's been so long I just need to move on And I have tried But your there when I close my eyes Some things don't fade Like the times we have spent and the pictures that i have saved I can't forget So sleep when i can til it happens all over again
Open Road 04:35
Open road Verse: Eyes closed...I breathe It's just me I know...I need Release We walk that road but we don't know We think of home but we don't go Chorus: I could just walk this road alone I could decide to never come home But I can't forget the way you see me So when I leave I never find peace Bridge: I'll never find peace It's the way things go So I don't sleep Until I go back home Verse: The signs...divide They don't hide There is...another side We won't find We chase what's down that road Til we don't know if we can go home Verse: I know...It seems Out of reach That road...it dont lead Where we think You walk so long and it gets old But don't forget there's always home
Chorus: Life is full of distractions Pulling me every which way But one things for certain So I won't stop to play I said I won't stop Verse: I was just a person Living in his own world But they didn't let me know So soon to be knocked down They step on me some more Got me down so I couldn't rise Verse: Now my head was spinning Where am I supposed to go They wanna take take everything from me I look around when they left I was not the only one Thats right, We're not alone ... Verse: I don't have to think twice To realize it is a war They got you, or they're gonna try They don't stop if we quit It's ok to cross the line We didn't know but its about time


Our second body of work, this ep bridges where our head was at for the Suspicious Cricket album and where we are heading. With a slightly more electronic sound, we tried to retain that groove and grit that makes us who we are. Take a piece was recorded in our studio as a true diy effort. We have spent countless hours tweaking these recordings for your listening pleasure! Enjoy!
