about

falling off a building Columbia, South Carolina

this act began in 2004 and just turned ten years old. it's been surviving on the fringes of interest since the day it was first conceived. it's worth doing. it's that thing of realising you are your own best friend and you need to take as good of care of yourself as you possibly can and in so doing you learn to take care of everyone else. ... more

Track Name: I want that Life back
I died again. I always think I've got it figured out and I can be saved but I'm wrong. And it left. I knew it all along, she was no answer, at least in herself. She was a reminder to me of life, being alive, not living this waking death. I don't wanna say it, but you put all your eggs in one basket and that basket's me and I am a shitty basket. I want to breathe and not be crushed, I want to not mess up, but it may be too late. It's never too late. I'd rather die completely than just in part. I want that Life back.
I can't expect anyone to understand. I am alone and my loneliness is carved in stone. I am alone and it's time I acted like it. I am alone.
i want to breathe and not be crushed
i want to not mess up
we're leaving like we always said we would
we're breathing like we always prayed we could
I love you I don't know what that means
I love you and that's why I have to leave
I want to breathe and not be crushed
I want to not mess up
Track Name: request/forecast/lament/empty promise/hope
come over and hold me darlin, or keep layin there and i'll keep callin, i'll keep playin and you keep fallin asleep
if you ever remember what was together in the both of us, we'll see if there's any justice for me

i'm colder than i have ever been, i'm older than i wanna be
my shoulder is there for you but you're not leanin on me

i been livin in a fantasy, daydreamin is killin me, i'm feelin that i would gladly wake up if you'd just put some coffee on and start singin a brand new song, my heart's beatin, i think we're gonna make it

i'm colder than i have ever been, i'm older than i wanna be
my shoulder is there for you but you're not leanin on me

lovin you is the hardest thing i could choose to keep on tryin to do
you don't make it easy
but lovin you is the smartest thing that i could choose to keep on tryin to do, i don't want it easy

it's time to get on with it, i'll remember to not forget, i'll grow up and i will get my act together
it's time to get off of this repetitive pessimissistic fear that makes me keep on missing what i hold dear
so hold on dear, lend me a listenin ear, i'm thinkin maybe we're gonna make it easy, hold on dear and the picture that will appear will get us away from here and into the future


i'm colder than i have ever been, i'm older than i wanna be
my shoulder is there for you but you're not leanin on me
i'm older than i have ever been i'm colder than the color blue
if your shoulder is there for me, well i want to lean on you

i'm older than i have ever been but i'm younger than I'll ever be
Track Name: we bleu it
when clinging on to you never seemed to get me anywhere, bringing on the blue was the only thing that helped us see what's there. please believe me, i'm growing up, or at least i'm trying to...

we're leaving like we always said we would
we're wasting no time
we're speaking in rhyme and rhythm
i'm pasting my face on the walls all over town
i hope you will look, i hope i can be found

from waking in the night worried about what i've done to you to "breaking up's alright, i swear to God it's what we've gotta do"

please believe me, i won't grow up, at least not in that filthy way you want me to, the man you're demanding out of me you won't get, wait and see, i'll be a little boy forever

i'm leaving like i always swore to god i would
quit wasting my time, i've paid for my crimes but i can't forget them
you're pasting my face on the milk cartons at school
but no one will look, i've jumped off the pedestal

please believe me, when i grow up this will make a lot more sense

we're leaving like we always said we would
we were wasting our lives
we will waste our lives no longer
i'm taking my place on your television screen
i hope you will look
i hope we can be seen
Track Name: I never noticed Flowers til last April
i never liked my name until i heard you say it
now i'm in the game and i can't get out
i never noticed flowers until last April blossomed
but i am lookin now and i'm not stoppin
all my hope was gone and i was movin backwards
now i'm moving on and i'm so happy
you are in my past, will you be in my future?
if it's not too much to ask, i'd like you to be

i'm growin up i'm moving on i am progressing
i'm feelin good i feel alive its such a blessing
that i have to leave

i wouldve been destroyed
i couldve been demolished
now i'm overjoyed to be alive
i coulda been convinced
the dust i am been polished
but now it makes so much sense that i could cry
but i'll just laugh
i never wanted to leave out from your presence
now i'm hear with you
i tell myself i must remember this
could you help me to
finish this one sentence?
i want to see in you something to hope for

i'm growin up i'm moving on i am progressing
i'm feelin good i feel alive its such a blessing
we're growin up we're movin on
we are progressing
we're feelin awesome we feel alive its such a blessing that i have to leave
Track Name: it's time
i love you
so pull the trigger twist the knife,
i wanna die i want that life back
and leave me here to bleed to death
i'm soakin wet i'm short of breath my dear, my sweet

i love you

what was killin you was killin me but it did not succeed
i am alive
well if its killin you, its killin me
but it will not succeed
we are alive
and its time we acted like it
i love you
and its time i acted like it
