about

This is an album that I had shelved for almost two years. It's the extended or full length if you'd rather for the EP I released last April called, When This Ends You Will Remember Everything, That You Tried So Hard To Forget. These songs, are rarely played live at all, but I figured I'd get them out there for you to make this Full Length number two this year. One more to go. Thank you everyone for your support and all of that it means more than you will ever know.

about

joebryant. St Charles, Missouri

So, let's try this again. I'm not going to be wordy, I write too many songs and put them on here. I play shows occasionally, tour sometimes, and never sleep. I own and operate West Clark Records, currently endorsed by TILLbrand, and do almost everything myself. From the suburbs of St Louis, and all of these songs are sort of alright I guess. If read this or enjoyed the music thank you. ... more

Track Name: Words Work Just As Well As These Photographs
You told a lie, and I told a lie. So, I could never understand your side, and you could never get to mine. You thought that I could come home. I said I'd make it there alone. I believe that we all die, and we'll burn alone with the spectral fire.

You've got nothing to brag about and I've got nothing to boast about. 'Cause you told a lie and I told the biggest lie. (You told a lie)

Your new friends will never understand, that you meant what was inside your plan. Just another good life for you and your children. That you'll never ever have. So, go hang out with your new husband, I'm sure he'd like to know the places you've been.

You've got nothing to brag about and I've got nothing to boast about. 'Cause you told a lie and I told an even bigger lie. But at least I know I can't... win the fight. (No one wins an unfair fight)
Track Name: The Last Call
This is your last call, the last song the sour note. And I hope deeply that you can take me for granted again. As for this being your last call, I won't answer any calls at all. This is your last call, the last song the last sour fucking no. And I hope deeply that you can take it all for granted again. As for this being your last song, well it was written all wrong. I'm always wrong. This is your last call the last song the last fucking note. I hope deeply that you can take all of this for granted again. (Before it's all gone)
Track Name: Rooms
"I have a back story, but it's not worth telling. Abandoning, everyone but the living. I have a future and it won't be the same as what I have here in the present which is constantly waiting. I have a dream every night that is you and I, and I've woken up to realize that I am alone. I have fallen in love to fall apart and I have time to kill in this place that isn't home"

Abandoning, everyone but the living, Wondering, if anyone was still listening. The closest thing to thinking. A part of you, is missing. Without words and ink, you would look so alone. You're whispering to the inside, You're smiling not to show your eyes. Trembles causing your hopes to die. Yeah, I am hopefully just not on the outside. Does that make it a lie, to look so in love without you.

Well, this apartment building, yeah it always seems to be living. Sounds and noises I am listening. Yeah, I'm sorry but I am abandoning. Well, just like you were wondering; you are not alone, you are not my home. (Anymore, yeah well, you are not my home because I don't know you anymore. Because you've left me here in a room all alone, please just leave me here...)
Track Name: It Never Amounted To Much Of Anything
It didn't turn out to be much other than you and me, and it wasn't... it wouldn't ever amount to nothing. Well, it clearly meant the world to you, as you walked into the room as you fell through my floor. While passing through walls we become war-torn. And I had asked that I had asked for more. I guess, it never amounted to anything. We never amounted to much anyway.
Track Name: Roller Coaster Oh, Roller Coaster
Based on the patterns of the imagery....
There's not a point in changing anything....
Everything keeps spinning independently....

A catastrophe of trying to make out what you've been saying. I can't really work this out when you are choking. On every reason you ever had for leaving. Oh, roller coaster. I loved you my roller coaster...

Maybe I could say what I've been writing....
Maybe I could give you a better reason to stay....
Well, I've been to busy listening to the audio....
Of you and where you've been sleeping...underground...

Underground that's where you've been sleeping. You're turning this carnival into a funeral. Oh, roller coaster, roller coaster. Maybe I can say what I've been trying to say. Maybe I could give you a better reason to stay. Maybe I could give you a better reason to listen. Like you'd (even) listen to me...

Oh, roller coaster...
Oh, roller coaster...
I've been listening...
Track Name: Sometimes I Dream That I May Cease To Be
I fell asleep on this twenty-three year long elevator ride,
Waking up at each floor as new faces crowded inside.
Their faces seem stuck in an everlasting smile,
as I'm stuck to this linoleum floor.

Saying get your head up kid your thoughts aren't worth dying for.

Well, these thoughts in my head, these thoughts they rape the back of my head. You sabotage every subtle enjoyment I found in the sunset. But what could I say. Yeah, what could I have said. (Nothing at all..)

We reached my destination as doors opened I hesitated to look around
Pushed the doors open, glanced for a second, but nothing could ever be found.
So, I climbed back inside to push the buttons just to hear some sort of sound.
I made my way further and closer down, down, down closer towards the ground.

But these words in my head, they say I might as well sleep again. Until I find something to take my breath away. These words are all I have until then (these words are illiterate) the doors opened up and someone new walked in.
Track Name: Through An Epic Plane Crash and Back To Your Front Door
"Are you there, all alone?"
Track Name: Leaba Ancaire (Anchored)
I’ve been wasting too much time and effort. On words and phrases I could barely ever afford. Well, second thoughts and consciousness brought you back to shore. Just pull me back up whenever you are ready to leave. And I’ll always be here to hold you steady.

So, here is some rope it’s tied to me down here at the bottom of the sea. Just promise to drown me whenever you are needing, and I’ll attempt to hold you steady.

Just promise not to forget me, and that I’m bound to you and this bed, And you can pull me back up whenever you are ready to leave here. Or cut the line and drown me here at the bottom of the sea. Just promise not to forget about me down here at the bottom of the sea,

So, here is some rope it’s tied to me down here at the bottom of the sea. Just promise to drown me whenever you are needing, and I’ll attempt to hold you steady.As steady as I can in these turbulent seas (Just promise not to forget). So, here is some rope it’s tied to me(Just not to forget about me) down here at the bottom of the sea(Down here at the bottom of the sea). I’ll attempt to hold you steady.

And I’ll attempt to hold you steady (And I’ll always be here to hold you steady)… And I’ll attempt to hold you steady(I’m down here at the bottom of the sea)…
Track Name: When This Ends You'll Remember Everything, That You Tried So Hard To Start Forgetting
I know it's hard to find a friend, in times like this the feelings never end. So, I'm ending this with another sad song, cause I know that you had heard them all. So, I've heard that you needed a friend. Someone for you to confide in. I'm sorry if you weren't entertained with me. (You're never entertained)

I know that I was never the greatest of friends, but you were always there to save me in the ends. And I will always be grateful for this, and I will always thank you for this. So, I've heard that you needed a friend. Someone for you to confide in. I'm sorry if you weren't entertained with me. (You're never entertained, at all)

But I want you to confide in me. 'cause I will always be right here waiting, for you to find something... or just say goodbye when you are leaving.

So, when this ends I hope you can forgive, instead of living here in regret. Because when this ends you'll remember everything (or nothing at all) that you tried so hard to forget...
