about

Check out our new band: WILD RIVERS!
www.wildriversmusic.com


To download, click Buy Now (don't worry, it's still free) and enter 0. On the next page, under the download button click the drop down menu, and select "MP3 320". By doing this you get the best quality and can download all three at once, rather than individually. We only paid for limited downloads so we would prefer this method over downloading individual songs.


This is our debut EP consisting of three original songs. We're both so excited to finally put out some original material, so give it a download and please share it if you like it! We invested a lot into this and would love to get our music heard by as many people as possible. Feel free to donate if you please, but don't feel obligated to do so. Thanks to everyone who helped make this all possible and everyone who's supported us so far, we have a lot of big plans and ideas for the future!

Stay tuned for upcoming shows in the summer, and like us on Facebook at

Track Name: Paul Simon
Paul Simon

I'll apologize but I'll try to make it unclear
And I love this city but I'm really not from here
Now I gotta leave this town as a washed up stuntman
In a beat up coupe I imagine is a mustang

There's a voice in my head singing out turn it around
But I'm on a highway honey tearing up the eastbound
There's a man out there smiling like a dying king
Laughing at my soul, searching for anything

And I've got mine
I am a rock, I am an isle
And I've got mine
I'm shaking ground, I'm faking found
In my little town

These days I'm searching for the great unknown
Wondering if Paul Simon ever had it good alone
Find me a place that can make a couple tables turn
That's warm all winter with a couple more bridges to burn

I am a child yet I've got to let my spirit roam
A few more years before I'll hitch a ride home
I've got bones to break and miles to go alone
One day I'll start writing like I'm Leonard Cohen

And I've got mine
I am a rock, I am an isle
And I've got mine
I'm shaking ground, I'm faking found
In my little town

I'm still tall and made of stone
But I still can't rest on my own
I'm on my own
Track Name: No Ribbons
No Ribbons

She got no ribbons
Just a smile that'll paint you pure
Leave you looking for a cure
She's no sinner
But I bet she ain't afraid to bite
Keeping you awake all night, all night.

And I've no time for chasing what ain't mine
Cause she pays the price
These days, these nights, and this vice
My heart's giving my soul advice

She's not graceful
Got shackles that are iron strong
Darling won't you come along
She's no angel
But she got cherub running through her veins
Darling won't you stop these chains, please

And I've no time for chasing what ain't mine
Cause she pays the price
These days, these nights, and this vice
My heart's giving my soul advice

And you got me good but I'm not quite fine
And I got some things I ain't afraid to find
And I'm seeing all the signs
Cause I'm in this deep but I'm out my mind
Out my mind

And I've no time for chasing what ain't mine
Cause she pays the price
These days, these nights, and this vice
My heart's giving my soul advice
Track Name: Sea To Sky
Sea to Sky

You know I'm not
I'm not a man of god
I don't pray so much
And I don't ever fall

Woke up today
And you'd grown your wings
And most promised things
Ain't promised after all

Rain clouds dripping
Forever young, forever beautiful
Angels slipping
Forever young, forever beautiful

You know the words
You know the things they say
All the old clichés
It don't make it clear

And when you called
You burned my naked ears
God damn it's been a crazy year
You know it snowed down here

Rain clouds dripping
Forever young, forever beautiful
Angels slipping
Forever young, forever beautiful

Can't help thinking that you need your keys to drive
I bend my knees and cry
Sea to Sky
