about

This demo was recorded for my Studio Recording IV class at ACM@UCO. Since this was for a class project, there was limited time in the studio and limited resources to work with, so this album is a little rough around the edges. Regardless, it was a lot of fun to record and put together. It includes songs from years ago and more recently written ones. The people involved are Santiago Ramones, Stuart Adams, Logan Haley, Landon Ward, Trevor Lindley, and Noah Copeland.

Track Name: Koi
Moving around
I don't make a sound
My world floats along
In a beautiful song
There's nothing better
Than pleasant weather
It's easier to eat
Without any feet

Koi

There's nothing wrong
Here in my pond
We're never cold
We never grow old
I laugh and grow fat
Right here where I'm at
It's easy to swim
When lights don't grow dim

Koi

We're orange and white
Pretty and light
We're red and gold
And our blood is cold
The invincible humans
Are our mighty servants
We don't have a worry
Because we're not furry
Life's simply perfect
Nobody objects
I've plenty of food
And I never lose
I know I will die
But I will not cry
'Cause my life is ultimate bliss
And I will be missed

Koi
Track Name: The Worm and the Meatball
Suddenly, a new change has come
This affects everything
I disagree, I can't believe
That this would even be
Something that splits us
Let war be declared among
Those who suffer together
Bread no longer broken
When the table's been stolen
Among this dispute over an image
We're no longer productive
This amounts to nothing more than
A worm and a meatball

Chorus:
We could be doing something big here
We should be reaching for the stars
Yet we're more focused on the big picture
The one that's hanging on the wall
We could be out among the universe
We should plot courses to the moon
Instead of working through our problems
We split with worm and meatball

Everything depends on the outcome
We simply cannot suffer through
The sight of that horrific worm
Stop the presses, pause development
Look! Turn and see the sight
Beyond the stars and moonlight
And all of our dreams come true
Concerned with the image to be
Pressed on our stupid shirts
We're doing something huge here
Where infants someday hope to be
While we wish to be elsewhere
Outside of worms and meatballs

Chorus

I swear, I swear that we can fix this
We're so very close, you just have to choose

What really matters?
A worm or a meatball?
What really matters?
The worm and the meatball?

Chorus
Track Name: Into Etherium
As you close your eyes,
The numbing of sleep closes in
The troubles of the day will fall off
Lie in comfort on a cloud
The world no longer constrains you
Inhibitions now gone
Make your way into the dreamworld
Among the Gods in etherium

...The heavy chains of gravity
Your body can't normally break free from
But while you're not in reality
You are now released into freedom
You can fly among the stars
Now no distance is far
In our dreamworld
Our hearts will meet

Let yourself melt in the ether
Break free from restless hours
Finally we'll be together
The real world cannot separate us

Worldly worries no longer ours
We create realms in our thoughts
All I wait for is a smile
Eradicate the sadness in your mind
All the hopes you hoped to reach
And all the dreams you dared to dream
We will reach them together
Now in our paradise

Let yourself melt in the ether
Break free from restless hours
Finally we'll be together
The real world cannot separate us

As the dreams come to an end
The world fades back into your sight
You may feel as though it was meaningless
Hours of freedom all gone
Over time you'll see that's not true
However unreal it felt
Ether still exists in your mind
Never leave your memories behind

Ether still exists in your heart
Never leave your memories behind
Never leave this memory behind
Track Name: Late
I tried my best to make it to you
Up to you
But the drive is hard to stay awake
Up, away
The flight was cancelled today
There's nothing I could do

Every light I got to turned red
Every door I pulled at was locked
Everyone I spoke to didn't know
I tried, I tried, I tried, I tried
I'm sorry I was late

Real letters travel so slow
Too far, far away
We'd fallen out of touch and
One ring on the phone
Was all it took to say...
My heart broke at the news

Every light I got to turned red
Every door I pulled at was locked
Everyone I spoke to didn't know
I tried, I tried, I tried, I tried
I'm sorry I was late

As if it wasn't enough to hardly talk
And if I'd gotten a chance to know you at all
Arriving late
A universe delay
Track Name: Red
Our city is yearning
All the lights burn bright
Beautiful singing
Fills the room each night
Always from you

In her eyes I see my future fall in right with hers
In her voice I hear my lover call me from the dead
Oh, Red

You fend off the process
You’re the one who can
Keep me beside you
So we’re not alone
Always with you

In her eyes I see my future fall in right with hers
In her voice I hear my lover call me from the dead

Please vocalize
Endless surprises
Blue skies I see
Come to the country with me

Oh, Red
Oh, Red
Track Name: Right Now
I'm not mad at you
How could I ever be?
I want to fix it, too
Why won't you let me?
I've done nothing wrong
At least as far as I can tell
We could move right along
Tell me and let's get well

It's okay to not want to
Right now
It's alright to be raging
Right now
Stop and breathe in with me
Right now
You don't have to be seething
Right now

Right now, right now, right now
I want to be alone

All I need from you
Is for you to let me be
All that I can do
Is try to help you see
I'll always be here
Here to support you
I want you to hear
That I will get you through

I want to be mad right now!
I want to be mad right now!
I want to be mad right now!
I don't wanna let you!
