Fall/Fell\Free was written and recorded in about twelve hours. Since I've been working on a game for a long time now, the idea was to make something really fast and not give it any deep thought. A lot of the time I was figuring out the parts as I was recording. As a result, the songs are pretty raw and sloppy at times, but also special I think. For a long time I avoided playing guitar, because I felt uncreative with it, but all of these tracks ended up being stripped down guitar and voice songs. Hopefully it's a good EP to listen to as the autumn weather kicks in.

Track Name: Stuck
More than once, I gave all I had
But there it is, still staring back
Sometimes enough is enough, I did my best
But it's come too far to settle for less

I'm moving now, I can finally see it
The perspective came flowing back
Sometimes you forget what makes it all so great
The people and places, why did I wait?
Track Name: Mask
Rocky bays, reflective nights
After the attic, something flashed right
Remembered you from years before
Never spoke, but you left an impression
So I reached out, unsure of consequences

Decided to be myself, tired of wearing a mask
Got to know each other, held nothing back
Was worried you thought I was making it up
Everything you said I nodded my head

Whenever I talk, I feel the need
To look at every word, alter and tweak
But with you, from my core I can speak
I feel understood, no words can express what that means to me

Sometimes I'm too much, and you've been through a lot,
But I want you to know how special you are

I don't know if you can relate to this
But I want you to know how you give me hope,
how you inspire me to be me
Thank you so far, for what you've helped me see
Track Name: Fell
There's a great wall
Blocking them to me
From layer to layer
I'll slowly peel them away
The great tower must fall
If it's to help anyone at all
