Pin Stripes Fan Account Interesting and creative mix of guitars and electronic sounds, which is really fresh and we'll produced. This is lifted by the impressive vocals. Reminds me of bands like Radiohead and Muse, which is a huge compliment in my book! Favorite track: The Wait.

Restless Astronaut Rec Great pieces! This EP is eclectic, but in a very clever way - different musical worlds, but united by a unique style. I imagine this is what Layne Staley's solo album would sound like. We want more! Favorite track: Another Day.

Nowhere 04:08 video
Bowing to no one, authority's gone ever after Temptation is guidin' me Asked me when I would return home but I never answered Escaped the third degree finally Fed me some line of how blood and respect intermingle Maybe back in her own time Wonderin' what it was like then but I never asked her My respect's laced within the wine Flaunting, creative how much one can differ So individual yet all look the same Always pretending I'm someone I can't be Someone who doesn't think life's just a game Seems like the only ones listenin' are headin' for nowhere And they're takin' the fastest lane Seems like the only ones listenin' are headin' for nowhere As they bleed in the mudded rain It seems like the only ones listenin' are headin' for nowhere With instincts of antiquity

The Wait 04:14
Searchin' for some way out though try as I might Sit here and suffer under fluorescent light The only way to know these years are now behind you... Met a new girl today and gave her my all Found I was just another notch on her wall The only way to know these years are now behind you Is to bow down under the man and his call So how was I to know she'd show full of light? Not too impressed with how she saw without sight The only way to know these years are now behind you Is to just settle down and not have a right I've been waitin' here for so... Waiting Stand and pace around the floor Waiting 'Til that someone offers more Watching I'm still waitin' here for so... Waiting All that she meant to me now sealed in a jar Soul-searching journey didn't take her too far And now you've finally learned these years are not behind you Sit back, accept the fact you are who you are

Shitlist 04:44
Though my intention was never harmful, keep on runnin' I only wanted to hear some fallin' rain, keep on fallin' Down to your empty plain What holds your future gain? Though my intent was never harmful, keep on runnin' I only wanted to hear some fuckin' rain, so keep on talkin' You keep threatening all these changes But nothin' seems to happen Except I've nearly lost the urge to call your name out And after everything how could you wear my ring? I know the list goes on and on What is yours is mine and mine is lost And I can't explain And though it may not stand to trial To rectify, pretend it's all worthwhile My hope has waned You say the grass is always greener on either side of the fence So stop sitting on that fence and go build another Now that your life is new has faith walked out on you?

"Finished with them all!", he said Set out on unwaking tread Driftin' past the water Couldn't help but feel misled Turned in on himself instead Burying the trust he once held deep inside Then comes a key to set free from the rack Managed by love in an aged Cadillac But never regard her so Filled with unexpected light Fought the source with all his might Holdin' back the water Learning to accept his plight Found she held eternal night Without a breath in the palm of her hand Candle of kismet lit free from above Hard to accept but expecting enough I'll never regard her so True to herself yet so hard to unfold Obstinate mirth but it never grows old I wish she'd regard her so And so I turn tomorrow's page Free of will's unyielding cage Guided signs of water Early in a wanton phase Reminds me of a younger age And what it's like to feel as your once more alive Rebirth of passion and prospects revised To no longer give just enough to get by I'll never mistreat her so

Another Day 02:37
Another day, another dollar I told myself the day I said that I'd put a bullet in my head So won't you stand up, scream, and holler And show the rest of us you care enough to put our fears to bed Won't you look up here and tell me what you see? Please be honest man, we're doing this for free Getting sick of words "good job" is all I hear Help me to understand that steady work is gear So one more day, one more dollar I tell myself that nine to five's not what I want, it's what I need So won't you stand and scream "blue collar!" And show the rest of us you care enough to eat the glowing seed

Can I justify all these things I hide? Tried to nullify the wounds your promise dealt I can't describe the awesome pain I felt And I don't wanna let it go Won't intercede, oh no Every now and then I hear you have to bend Over someone else's desk just to make ends meet I used to be so proud of all your feats But not so anymore (You keep braggin' 'bout the sun so high without ever havin' taken a walk outside) Won't intercede (I guarantee that your man won't lie because the more we care the less we hide) Do as you please (So you brag about the sun so high never havin' taken a walk outside) You'll learn to live in curses, stones, and rags but Who let the cat out of the bag? Should I compromise? Should I close my eyes? Or maybe analyze the words I've hear people say? There comes a time when corporate slime must pay I don't think that time is now (You keep braggin' 'bout the sun so high without ever havin' taken a walk outside) Won't intercede (I guarantee that your man won't lie because the more we care the less we hide) Do as you please (So you brag about the sun so high never havin' taken a walk outside) Down on your knees (Guaranteed I know your man won't lie the more we care the less we hide) I hope they meet your needs You'll learn to live in curses, stones, and rags but Who let the cat out of the bag? On and on this riddling romance Rots away like dry October leaves On and on it trickles down It trickles down and falls all over me

about

Jamie Funk, Divide and Conquer: “There might be some genius at play here and I look forward to hearing more of his work in the not too distant future.”

Limnetic Villians: "I listened to this all the way through about 3 times. I think it's a really unusual work, there's some Pearl Jam elements in the vocals, Korn like structures, but then a sort of odd 80's gothic electronica, some grunge, some trip-hop. Another Day is my favourite track off it, in terms of the production and the simplicity of it, the grunge of it. I'm going to follow you guys so I can hear more in the future. There's a strange mix of things here that I quite like."

DkmTkm: "So I know I can't sing but I'm hearing vocals that make me sound like dog turds under a shoe. My vocals work for what I do, I think ha, but wow massive vocals dope mix!!!!"

Carbon Footprint Music Productions: "[Nowhere] is exceptionally Good!!! You have just gained a new Fan!!!"
