about

Two years in the making, this album saw a deep bout of writers block that finally ended as I walked out of college. Essentially the last piece of my adolescence the album contemplates a number of themes ranging from depression, denial and short sighted love.

about

Andrew Burgess Portland, Maine

In early 2007 i picked up a guitar for the first time. A few months later, i began writing and and recording my own original pieces. Now a 22 year old college student I am constantly looking for funds to upgrade equipment and new influences and sounds to experiment with. Ive been told I'm generally folky but I like to play around with many other genres. ... more

Track Name: Romantics
Romantics can’t help but touch everything that they see
Wasting every hour touching worthless things
And I can’t help but question you when that’s all I see
Am I just an hour or am I what you seek

I know that I’m wrong
Still my feelings remain strong
Maybe I don’t care enough
I don’t know what

Am I not to fear you just because you’ve opened up
Just because your open doesn’t mean that you add up
Still I think that you
Might have found your token don’t you use it up.

I know that I’m wrong
Still my feelings remain strong
Maybe I don’t care enough
I don’t know what
Track Name: She Don't Care
She's got time she's got time to wrap up tight
Another reason she has to live every night

When I ask her, is this all worth it, she laughs at me

She says I don’t care I don’t care
She says I don’t care I don’t care

Its been so hard but that’s a celibate life
Refrain from talking about forgotten nights
I used to feel like everything was out
Now Im not sure what this is all about

She says I don’t care I don’t care
She says I don’t care I don’t care
She says I don’t care I don’t care

She says calm down
I say what now
You don’t need it
You can feel it

I thought I deserved this
Maybe I'm just nervous

She says I don’t care I don’t care
She says I don’t care I don’t care
She says I don’t care I don’t care
Track Name: Field of Nothing
I write my name
Too cold to open with
Its fall last day
Too early to make this play

How did I wind up here
How did I wind up here

In a field of nothing
In a field of nothing

We mocked we talked
Always so dramatic

A range of words
Laughing cause we made it worse

You tossed a phrase and now I’m here
You tossed a phrase and now I’m here

In a field of nothing
In a field of nothing

You need you create
You leave and I wait

I love being here
I love being here

In a field of nothing
In a field of nothing
Track Name: Inside My Mind
Im not going to let these thoughts dwindle inside my mind
I’ll make them real and finally watch the things indie my head

I might have to reach those spots up high where my happiness grows now and I will gather what I need to get inside

Inside my mind now
Inside my mind now

I might take my time. Experience all of the things i enjoy now
and steal a moment of time before I get my prize

Soon I’ll have it done I'll enjoy the fruit of what my efforts brought me
and I will remember the moment I first got inside.

Inside my mind
Inside my mind
Track Name: Junior
It seems like I have never known
just what it is that makes them crow
So I repeat the same old dockett
Wait for them to let you go and
Find a way back to your home
Spend it wisely fill your pockets

Being around doesn’t seem so fair
Not being there is better than those stares

My time is my time and it’s all I ever need
It’s all I ever needed
My time is my time and it’s all I ever need
It’s all I ever needed

I know that I'll never know
Just what it is I want to show
an endless quest to understand those years
I admit at times I am quite torn
Sitting here and watching porn
Dwelling in these thoughts and pointless fears

Being around doesn’t seem so fair
Not being there is better than those stares

My time is my time and it’s all I ever need
It’s all I ever needed
My time is my time and it’s all I ever need
It’s all I ever needed

I admit at times I am quite torn
Sitting here and watching porn
Dwelling in these thoughts and pointless fears

I have to be like this for two more years
I have to be like this for two more years
Track Name: Paper Thin
Blue blurs swallowed up by the sea
Fading shades cast over me
Where in the world can I be
Where in the world can I be

No not this not right now
I cant remember how
Was it always just like this
Was it always just like this

This world is paper thin
Yet her heart breaths with dimension
And all of the seas conventions,
Seem to fall on this connection

And although things are a blur
And I don’t know how things were
I know that she is my convention
Fate will fall on our connection

Islands in open green
Planets in a cosmic sea
It all seems so strange to me
But not like how things used to be

And creatures shout up from the depths
Their wills their lives their dreams their deaths
Their voices echo in my head
Her voice too she's out ahead

This world is paper thin
Yet her heart breaths with dimension
And all of the seas conventions,
Seem to fall on this connection

And although things are a blur
And I don’t know how things were
I know that she is my convention
Fate will fall on our connection
Track Name: Day Off
Ive got the day off and I'm sitting here whining
Ive got too much time on my hands and it showing my skin is cracking up
And I'm done
Yeah I'm done with this waiting game its taking a toll on me

Those flowers they rise up every morning
They’ve got dirt on their roots but their still taking water up
And I'm drunk
Yeah I'm drunk but I've got still 60 dollars

I know
I know who I'm talking too
I know
I know I need to

Please
Please
Let me know, where I'm supposed to go
Track Name: Better Things
Would you wanna run away with me
Cause sitting here don’t seem no way for me
I know, these cliché starts don’t bring new art to our new scene
Could we move on to better things?

When you and I are sitting here and I’m the only one who smiles
It makes me wonder just how many tiles
How many tiles in this goddamned ceiling id have to count, before they all came down, down
before they all came down, down

Still I think hope is better than negativity
Despite all that’s happening you have to say you agree
It’s wearing me down that I’m around town with nothing but me
Could we move on to better things?

When you and I are sitting here and I’m the only one who smiles
It makes me wonder just how many tiles
How many tiles in this goddamned ceiling id have to count, before they all came down, down
before they all came down, down
Track Name: The Last Time
I like my eyes
They let me see
I can see them
They can see me

I know its strange
Hard to tell from far away
Don’t want to be put down
So you claw and you claw for any ground

It’s the last time we’ll see it through
It’s the last time ill look at you
It’s the last time ill read my proof
and I just wanna read with you

I like my ears
They led me here
I remember
Times this was all I heard

I felt things change
Faster than my thoughts could hang
And all those fun and games
Tossed into this furied plain

It’s the last time we’ll see it through
It’s the last time ill look at you
It’s the last time ill read my proof
and I just wanna read with you
Track Name: Feeling Fine
I know what I said
But don’t forget to get some rest

The ceilings and the walls
aren’t making me see the best

Ive got everyone
Thinking that I'm on the run
Ive tried to take the time and say
I wouldn’t do it anyway

I know you have all the answers

But its not true
Its not true.

Because I'm feeling fine.

Ive got a lot on
my plate right now

Not sure I have the time
to figure out and ending route

Theres nothing here to read into
I promised them, I'll promise you
If had anything to say
I probably shouldn’t anyway

I don’t need all the answers

And its not true
it's not true.

Because I'm feeling fine
