about

"Spilt Coffee" is an organic and honest EP filled with as much of myself as I could fit. Like the circumstances of spilt coffee, it was a beautiful accident of an album. It's an embracement of imperfection. Imperfection in my singing, my writing, my experiences, in who I am, and in simply being human. Spilt coffee is a representation of being ok with not always being ok.

Track Name: For The Best
There was a bike I used to ride.
The brakes were iffy, I often fell off.
But I know,
It was for the best.
It was for the best.

There was a girl I used to like.
She made me laugh all the time.
She had her doubts and I had mine,
But in the end it just wasn't right.
And I know,
It was for the best.
It was for the best.

There was a truck I used to drive.
But I didn't pay attention and it took a dive.
I learned to fly.
I learned to fly too soon.
And I know,
It was for the best.
It was for the best.

Things were nicer with my Dad alive.
I used to cry all the time
I used to cry too much of the time.
But I know,
He deserved some rest.

It was for the best.
It was for the best.
And I'm older now
So much wiser now.
It was for the best
It was for the best
It was for the best

And I know now,
That it was for the best.
Track Name: Don't Stare At The Sun
There's a light in the sky
It's been blinding my eyes
The daze it showed me
Hinted such lovely shades of life
Temptations of it
Seemed so worth it in my mind

There's a light in the sky
There’s a light in the sky
I tried collecting it's light

I'm seeing spots all the time
I think I damaged my sight
It goes to show it's what I'm owed
Looking more than twice
I've earned this burden
It's all been burned in as I lie

There's a light in the sky
There's a light in the sky
I tried collecting it’s light

All it’s light
All it’s light

I'm such a foolish one
I stared at the sun,
I stared at the sun.
I’m just remarkable
I stared at the sun,
I stared at the sun.
I stared at the sun
Don’t stare at the sun
Don’t stare at the sun

There's a light in the sky
I tried collecting it's light, again.
Track Name: Songbird
Birdy you've been tripping into me.
No flight when losing speed.
Your dropping feathers in your seat.
Vivid worry.
The recollection's been drawn
Reflections were wrong
The affection's been gone in this tone

I've been reading our elegy
Gutter's spillin at the seams
The songs you sing rival symphonies
But I'm not stung by your beak.
The direction is done
Imperfections sum
The affection's been gone in this tone.

It's so silly,
How static you cling to fate.
Believing stars always spelled our names
It's unlikely,
That I'd ever feel the same.
Now I'm pulling the plug on our cosmic drain

Where's my love?
Where's our love?
Where's my love?

I'm not feeling us today
Too much wind not enough sway
I feel I'm dying here
My soul is crying here

I'm not feeling us today
Too much breath no way to say
My soul is dying here
No more flying there

My veins pulse hard
Slows down beating softer.
And I still love you.
I'll always love you.
Track Name: Newton
When apples fall upon my head
The forces make me laugh
Reminded laws say we attract
As bruises form upon my head
The fruit was damaged too
Ain't it funny how we're both screwed?

It all makes me feel so numb
It all makes me feel so numb

The pull we’re feeling might be keeping us down
There's just enough that we're constantly bound
The pull we’re feeling might be keeping us down
I keep coming around
I keep coming around

An essence beckons me to you
And if I try to sway the course
Then I'd quickly find the floor.
When apples fall upon my head-
I try so hard to laugh
Cause if I don't I'd fold in half.

It all makes me feel so numb
It all makes me feel so numb

The pull we’re feeling might be keeping us down
There's just enough that we're constantly bound
The pull we’re feeling might be keeping us down
I keep coming around

The pull we’re feeling might be keeping us down
There's just enough that we're constantly bound
The pull we’re feeling might be keeping us down
I keep coming around
Track Name: Lucid Dreams
I've been sleeping all day,
Wasting everything that I said I'd save
Spending loose change on lucid dreams
Hoping it would change reality

And I'm dreaming always
Pressing clarity for senses of the unseen
I'm Hugging fantasy, living in theory
To break the line is to break the tie
The forces mending duality
Are melded far too cozily

But does is mean anything?
Can I free from empty?

And I'm stumbling, when I'm not asleep.
And I'm struggling, struggling to be
This magical life is mystically confined
I'm stuck mind

I fell through the glass half full
Drinking not so much to be positively inclined
To be infinitely defined.

And the crickets are chirping all night,
Composing symphonies for my secret life
And their melodies are making me cry,
They go…

And I'm stumbling when I'm not asleep
And I'm struggling, struggling to be
I'm stuck in my mind
Track Name: Roses
Roses are prettier, when they're not being scraped off your shoes.
And why do you have to step so hard?
I don't know, I don't know.
When Pollution is your safety word,
I'm sorry you've that you've never heard that it's
Easier in life to be nice
Smiling could be new,
A gift wrapped in innocence
For no greater price than your pride

I hope you find
Roses are kind
When you finally take off your shoes

And What do you say?
What's the point in wasted sound waves no one can feel?
And what do you do when you're all alone?
The only thing left alive
The only thing left to sigh
The only thing left to try

I hope you find
Roses are kind
When you finally take off your shoes
When you find
Roses are beautiful
You might finally take off your shoes

I hope you find
Roses are kind
When you finally take off your shoes
When you find
Roses are beautiful
You might finally take off your shoes
