about

this album may never be finished
nothing you're hearing here is actually finished
more like demos posted to inspire direction
it will eventually have something like thirty songs
i will slowly keep adding them until it feels complete
may take forever
but that's okay
:)

love,
brett

Track Name: Get Young
curse my ordinary features (didn't get young)
nurse this solitary drink until i'm fun
flashed my gimmick at the mirror (didn't get young)
cast, my shadow sat, a classy act to follow

baby don't believe i'm shriveling up by the wayside (didn't get young)
plan b: you're attentive or rough
what web to weave, just called to see what's up

of course, the bedside table
tilted earth, a summer way too long
when we get married, i'll get young

curse your superstitious evils (didn't get young)
kissed my window, made a wish, but did not die
left my luggage at the airport (didn't get young)
choked that terror back, a flight, a crash, goodnight

baby don't believe i'm falling apart by the wayside
plan b: unattractive or dumb or the spotlight
didn't get young
so i stop the show, rewrite the song, she calls to ask what's wrong:

will we get married after all?
Track Name: 1987 (nofloorwillhaveaface)
half a life thinking
pull out that book, put it back
i'm borderline sinking—stoned, something like that..
spent half a life drinking
a young man would want it back
a mastermind seeks it
overwhelmed, are we overwhelmed at last?

half a life dreaming
was it wasted or will we crash?
a reconciled setlist—oversold, we were typical at best
rest for the wicked, not one thinks they're next
but can't be sure
terrified guess:
are we going to hell? have we been to hell and back?
brace for the sunny day
then waste it stumbling home
where no floor will have a face
half a life taken
half a life given away

half a life thinking
recalling a reckless past
approaching the spider
underwhelmed, are we overwhelmed at last?
death for the restless, not one knows they're next
but can't be sure
terrified guest,
are you heaven sent? have you been to hell and back?
brace for the sunny day
then waste it stumbling home
where no floor will have a face
half a life taken
half a life given
half a life taken
half a life given
half a life taken away
