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.

Track Name: Hello, Disaster
LYRICS:

Hello, Disaster
my age old friend
it's been so long
so long

Good Morning Planet,
Good day, sweet world
you'll be ignored again

the rays of daylight only shine in my eyes
I'd rather hide myself and spare the world of my demise

my sweet disruption
my sour mood is coming through
I said, good morning sunshine
good morning to my attitude

the rays of daylight only shine in my eyes
I'd rather hide myself and spare the world of my demise
Track Name: The Artist
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
Track Name: Who's Your Monster?
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
Track Name: Ruining Days
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
Track Name: Young Professional
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
Track Name: Open Arms
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.
Track Name: Sol (Down to the Roots)
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
