about

This album was recorded entirely with a cheap RadioShack microphone that I got as a 16th birthday gift and using the mic input jack on my computer and the Audacity DAW to record it. It was not until 2011 that I started having better-quality equipment and had seriously begun recording songs with Adobe Audition for finer track recording and editing, therefore any of the more gummier-sounding recordings are genuinely a product of its time. I have tried my best to clean up the sound on the original six pieces where possible.

There are no real outtakes from this particular period in my life; this EP was compiled with a specific set of songs in mind. However, there's a few outlier tracks from that time I think that are suitable to showcase and a few live things from this "golden" age too, represented here by mainly the show-exclusive live album.

Track Name: I Wrote This Song (For You) (New 2019 Remaster)
I wrote this song for you
And I hope you'll enjoy it
Sure some may not understand
But only you should care

I wrote this song for you
And every word is true
I hope that I may be yours someday

These words are truthful in what you hear
If you don't believe me, then you don't have to listen
I want to be with you, but I couldn't find the words
So this is what I did

I wrote this song for you
And I hope you'll enjoy it
Sure some may not understand
But only you should care

I wrote this song for you
And every word is true
I'm sure that I will be yours someday

And if you ever leave me
I don't know what I'd do
I'd never be the same without you
So don't ever leave me baby, don't ever make me blue
Cuz I need you

So I wrote this song for you
And I hope you'll enjoy it
Sure some may not understand
But only you should care

I wrote this song for you
And every word is true
I know that I will be yours someday
Track Name: A Burger Story (New 2019 Remaster)
NARRATOR: It's five o'clock at the Local McDonald's. Ronald McDonald himself is currently entertaining the kids by doing the moonwalk. Suddenly, the door opens with a slight creak, and in walks Hot Carl with his empty stomach and his guitar...

So I stepped into the Local McDonald's
And I'm really hungry today
Y'see, I've been exercising for four hours
And I need some food really, really bad

I walked up to the counter
And ordered myself a burger
Then I sat down myself in a chair
And waited to be called

Then they handed me my burger
It smelled real good
I opened up my mouth
And then I heard it say
Several magic words
And I could not believe it!
Guess what he said!

BURGER: DON'T EAT ME, I'M A HAUNTED HAMBURGER!
I WANT TO LIVE A MEATY LIFE
AND I LOVE MY EXISTENCE, SIR
OH PLEASE DON'T SWALLOW ME!

And then I yelped (YAAAAAAAAAH...)
Cuz y'see, these things don't talk (Mmm-hmm!)
I dropped my burger on the table (kerplop!)
And as he screamed (YAAAAAAAH...)
He cursed upon hitting that table (#%@&%*!)

I swiveled around instantly
And I held up this magic mystery burger
I opened my mouth once more
And asked out to everyone at the Local McDonald's, "Who else got this burger?"

One man spoke up and said, "I ordered fat with my haunted hamburger."
Another guy said, "I ordered toast with my haunted hamburger."
Another dude said, "Like totally man, I ordered frisky with my haunted hamburger."
Some chick behind me, she exclaimed, "I ordered lonely with my haunted hamburger."
This old guy right near me exclaimed in equal tones, "I ordered crazy with my haunted hamburger."
This young kid right next to me said, "I ordered hole with my headburger."
And then some fat guy exclaimed, "I ordered haunted hamburger with my haunted hamburger, OM NOM NOM."
And even some skinny guy exclaimed that he had ordered suicide with his haunted hamburger!
And the waiter exclaimed, "Haunted hamburger goes great with crazy, drug-induced psychedelic journeys and ketchup, OH YES!"

NOT ORSON WELLES: THEY'RE EVEN BETTER RAW!

And that was the news
Everyone seems to have their own haunted hamburger
And they even speak; they talk for hours
Speaking in squishy rhyme
Their lips decaying with time
God, they smell weird
And yet everyone's burger is decaying
I guess it might be time for them to go
Yes, that's right - it might be time to release the meat...
RELEASE IT!
RELEASE THE MEAT!
RELEASE... THE... MEAT!!

Run free, free as the air
Run far, farther than the sea
Run, my meat buddy
Thank your haunted body
And head for the hills
Head for the hills!

SOME PREACHER GUY: Praise the lard and pass the sauce!
Track Name: The Fog (New 2019 Remaster)
In the city where the rain never falls
A cold air breeze drifted from the mountains
The blue skies melded into gray
As a fog descended unto this city

Every street and every light faded into the haze
Creating a beautiful mixture of blues, whites, and oranges
And as I stepped out onto the streets
I saw the most magnificent visage surround me

Oh, how I love the fog
Oh, how I love the fog

The sunset faded into the night
As the fog's grays replaced the stars
In every nook and cranny
Spreading its love for all to see

And as for me, well, I
Walked around and breathed deep
Took in that rare cold air
And wished I had my camera with me

Oh, how I love the fog
Oh, how I love the fog
Track Name: Choices (New 2019 Remaster)
Left and right
Up and down
Side by side
Fly the choices of life

What one does
What one says
What one acts
And what one thinks
Create the choices of life

Every day and every night
During every hour minute by minute
People make their choices in life

You gotta believe what your mind tells you
You gotta believe in the ones you trust
You gotta believe in the one you love
Cuz everything will work out
Yes, everything will work out

Two days back
One day forward
Ripples in time
Generated by the choices of life

What one feels
What one enjoys
What one avoids
What one accepts
Constitute the choices of life

Through the endless wait
Lie thoughts unsaid
Would you believe their thoughts?

You gotta believe what your mind tells you
You gotta believe in the ones you trust
You gotta believe in the one you love
Cuz everything will work out
Yes, everything will work out
Yes, everything will work out
'Cause you made a great choice in life!
Track Name: Deliver Me Now (New 2019 Remaster)
Every day feels the same
There's no use in being optimistic about it
Every night ends the same
I feel like I'm going insane

Deliver me now
Deliver me now
Deliver me now
Deliver me now
From this place where time stands still
Where even the longest day feels more like a week

Every place I go always seems empty
There's no use in pretending people are there
When everything you do just feels the same
The monotony of it all can just fry your brain

Deliver me now
Deliver me now
Deliver me now
Deliver me now
From this place where time stands still
Where nobody is nobody and existence itself is moot

Deliver me now
Deliver me now
Deliver me now
Deliver me now
From this place where time stands still
Track Name: Type 7 - Falling Forever (New 2019 Remaster)
I've been falling forever since last week
When I tripped on a rock and fell deep
Into your little old stony well
This whole experience is giving me hell

And I'm getting tired of seeing my young face
Reflected all over this horrid place
Where there's no way to tell
What's up and what's down in my endless cell

Been pondering as I've been falling forever
It's really nice of you to go and put it there
At that party of yours back when we were kids
I should've known something was amiss

Now I'm feeling the pain and the shame
Of falling forever with trouble to blame
As I'm stuck here in my new home, this well
Potentially trapped forever in my endless cell

Now I'm feeling the pain and the shame
Of falling forever with trouble to blame
As I'm stuck here in my new home, this well
Potentially trapped forever in my endless cell

In my endless cell
In my endless cell
In my endless cell...

(I hate my life.)
