The Artist 02:48
LYRICS: I weave words I'm a busy little spider ooh like a trail of crumbs they lead you to my perfectly thought out and executed little lie lie I'm a wordsmith, I plan every single move I ever make but I don't sleep, I hardly take a break I fear that they'll catch on, and look into my eyes and see lies it's an art, adding color to sheets of gray without a lie, what would an average man display? I'm an artist, a con-artist, I'm so damn dishonest I've gone off of the road I've gone off of the road I've gone off of the road he's gone off of the road a thousand pounds has made it hard to breathe and even harder to believe I swear it's worse than it seems it's been so long, I've forgotten the things I've said the way of life has left me on a precipice I may jump off, the landing could be soft or I could fall to my death I'll probably fall to my death he's gonna tell a lie he's gonna tell a lie he's gonna tell a lie he's gonna tell a lie he's gonna do it gonna lie again a lying tongue on one hell of a man he's gonna do it gonna lie again a liar liar fucking piece of shit man

close the door before reality get inside and all the animals, every animal with nothing to hide build your walls and keep your thoughts above the highs of the tide away from outside voices, all the other choices alright thoughts petrify me so from the city echoes thousands of sighs it settled in, it sleeps within it wasn't god who made the look in these eyes moves so slowly I know it comes for me the longest -- comes so slowly I know it waits for me the longest dreams moves so slowly I know it comes for me the longest -- comes so slowly I know it waits for me the longest dreams

Ruining Days 01:57
LYRICS: When I'm out I feel unstoppable I see no reason don't bother talking the man in the body there's nothing there but me and myself oh when I'm out I know I'm uncontrollable causing a fuss is easy ruining days of any man in my way don't make me blush I know I'm full of myself

LYRICS: so we part again, my friend you've gone and left me at a bitter end where'd my heart go? Where is my drive? they must have left and found a better guy I was never really good at math my mind has always found a different path it's hard to swallow, but clear as day I better look into my eyes and say slowly I don't want to be a young professional but my body's gotta eat I don't want to die looking up and yelling to the heavens why my life seems incomplete But i'm close I always see them in their modern cars sipping drinks at the expensive bars telling jokes that I don't understand living through a life completely planned driving home so they can watch a show about a life that they will never know inside a house for which they probably owe half of their life and a mountain of dough I don't want to be a young professional but my body's gotta eat I don't want to die hanging by a rope made out of ties but life is rarely sweet not even gonna try I don't ever wanna live alone working for someone I'll never know but I'm certain that I'll never show a bit of promise hope for anything anything else

Open Arms 03:34
LYRICS: fear and panic cloud my eyes a river cut this earth, but it now runs dry fear, I will not move from here well I could fly through the sky or I could disappear here is all the land that was once fertile there's not much left I could strum a chord, but it's not worthwhile this much is true there's nothing I can do fear, I witnessed my demise I saw it coming and I watched as it passed me by fear, I cannot move my feet it's like I'm trapped in sand, and it feels too deep here is all the land that was once fertile there's nothing left I could strum a chord, but it's not worthwhile this much is true there's nothing I can do with open arms I welcome it a life of standing completely still with open arms, I welcome it I welcome it, I welcome it Watching as the time slips by waiting as the time slips by hoping for a bit more time I wonder who can live a normal life? watching as your health declines knowing that you're gonna die and welcome it and welcome it.

LYRICS: I have drifted through the seas and watched the morning sun I often dream about the days and the stream that soon may run I have climbed a dozen trees to look across the storm that brought me here and still draws near to remind me of just one I have laid amongst the leaves and scattered with the wind I lie alone in the deep unknown with the nighttime glistening I have wandered through the years and with them I have run and though my dreams have grown and ceased the first cant be outdone I have always roamed through the great unknown I will always roam until I find my home

about

Hello, Disaster is a return to my roots. Like with all of my albums, I first chose a theme. I originally started with the idea to make an album that focused on my faults, but presented in a chipper way. It seemed like a fun area to explore, so I ran with it and was successful in writing a few good songs. But as I wrote more music, the album took a much more experimental turn. The result is an album that not only dips its toes, but shoves its whole foot into a melancholy pond. The instruments are a mix of the Virtual Friends era synths, with The Original Rebels guitar-work. I experiment with guitar tones more than I ever have, to the point where they are almost unrecognizable, while my vocal melodies range from weird chill-lines, to limerick inspired ballads.

The theme of the album also changed dramatically as I worked. What started as a fun self-deprecating album turned into an honest look at myself (but I swear it isn't boring). The album starts with me essentially laying out my faults, but I also touch on some of my fears, mostly focusing on the growing possibility of me never finding any sort of success with music. The 'story' ends with with what is probably my most favorite song that I've ever written, Sol. Sol just talks about how I am happy where I am, and that I'm okay never making it with music.

So you'll have to excuse all of the cheese that I just shot everywhere, but that's pretty much the gist of the EP. I hope you enjoy it, and I promise that I am going to continue writing more music with Visc. Sorry about the huge hiatus.
