about

The End is Near EP consists of a collection of songs conceived during the F.A.W.M. challenge of 2013. F.A.W.M., meaning February Album Writing Month, is a challenge in which you must write 14 brand new songs within 28 days. Out of the 14, I have chosen the 5 that I thought where the strongest, and re-recorded them with the full band treatment and better production values. The End is Near EP is the first official release from me, and hopefully showcases the vast ranges of influences and styles of music that I listen to.

Track Name: Do Work Son
Wake up in the morning
Fix myself some coffee and toast
Cherry marmalade
And the brew is a dark French roast

Got enough gas to make it on time
To punch that clock and make those nickels and dimes

Ain’t gonna stop til’ the job is done
I’m gonna do work son

Do work son, do work
Do work son, do work
Ain’t gonna stop til’ the job is done
I’m gonna do work son

Friday night in Jersey
Lookin' for something to do
Call the Ramparts Crew hit the trench
and have some brews

Golden Eye had that Golden Gun
Don't forget to sign the ceiling before you run

We never stopped 'til the job was done
'Cuz we did work son

We did work son
Did work
We did work son
Did work

We never stopped 'til the job was done
'Cuz we did work son

When the sun goes down
It's time to kickback and close my eyes
did everything I need to do
that's no surprise

I punched that time clock in the face
Good times were had not a laugh went to waste

I don't stop til' the job is done
Because I do work son

I do work son, do work
Do work son, do work
I don't stop til' the job is done
Cuz' I do work son
Track Name: Brick City Blues
Your summer is my winter
Oh these layers lie
Your bright side seems dimmer
In my tired eyes

I’m tired
I’m lonely
I’m thirsty
I’m hungry
I got those brick city blues
Your best day’s my worst
I’m the last you’re the first
I got those brick city blues

Your silver lining, is my dark cloud
And the rains have come
Your peace and quiet, is my too loud
You have finished, it seems that I am never done

I’m tired
I’m lonely
I’m thirsty
I’m hungry
I got those brick city blues
Your best day’s my worst
I’m the last you’re the first
I got those brick city blues

How can you walk a mile in another man’s shoes
When he ain’t got no shoes on his feet
It ain’t how he got there, it’s how he’s gonna get out
I wanna taste that thrill of victory, not that agony of defeat

I’m tired
I’m lonely
I’m thirsty
I’m hungry
I got those brick city blues
Your best day’s my worst
I’m the last you’re the first
I got those brick city blues
Track Name: Congratulations
I bow to you
Did everything you said you would do
Bet it made your day
Say the smile on you face as you walked away

I did my best
But like a baby bird fallen from its nest
I spread my wings
Didn’t do a damn thing

You didn’t come to hear this
An emotional near miss
I heard you `loud and clear, I get the situation
Take your trophy and go home
You had a gloat now leave me alone
And I will say “Congratulations.” to you.

Gotta shake my head
We probably both should be dead
Thought we left as friends
Thought I saw your crooked grin

Never got attached
Thought you had your perfect match
But the one thing I learned
Is that only match I'll ever be is the kind that burns

You didn’t come to hear this
Another emotional near miss
I heard you loud and clear, I get the situation
Take your trophy and go home
You had a gloat now leave me alone
I reluctantly say “Congratulations.” to you.

"Thinking of you as I lick the crumbs off the floor. Congratulations are due as you shut the door." Juliana Hatfield
Track Name: The End is Near
Rain fall sideways
Makes you wonder
Will peace be still?

Did you know him?
Fire and brimstone
With a twist of good will

With my own eyes
I’ve seen it
This is no facade

Part the storm clouds
Please be gentle
I’ve seen the face of god

Shattered windows
Signs and wonders
Wipe my conscience clear

Feel the wind blow
Hear the thunder
Oh, the end is near

Tribulation
Take a load off
Tell us everything

Revelation
This is no scoff
Did you hear me sing?

Clouds and darkness
Gather around him
Better watch your tone

Righteous judgment
Don’t be so grim
You are not alone

Shattered windows
Signs and wonders
Wipe my conscience clear

Feel the wind blow
Hear the thunder
Oh, the end is near
Track Name: Do Things!
Sometimes it takes more than a song to get you through the night
Sometimes it takes a couple wrongs, to make everything feel right
(Not suggested)
You can’t just sit around in a suit and tie
Waiting for that phone to ring
You gotta get up off your whoa, and do things

Sometimes it takes more than water to wash all the pain away
Sometimes you got to raise your voice til’ they hear what you say
You gotta to get up on that mountain
And spread your beautiful wings
You gotta get up off your whoa, and do things

Now I ain’t one to talk, I need to take my own advice
Just because there’s a cost don’t mean you pay that price
What?!

Sometimes you die 1000 times til’ you feels like you lived
You gotta clean off all that negative, to shine like you’re positive
If you feel like Cubic Zirconia
And you wanna be a diamond ring
You gotta get up off your whoa, and do things

Can't be scared that you'll strike out
When you won’t even take a swing
You gotta get up off your whoa, and do things

Can't just sit around like you're the pawn
When you wanna be the king
You gotta get up off your whoa, and do things

Do T-h-i-n-g-s
Do T-h-i-n-g-s
