Agent K(ahunasan) A lot of the the hardcore edges were smoothed off from their first release to this EP.
Fine by me....this is a better set.
More in a Punk-Pop vein in my opinion, but still very strong release.
Emo-core clean vocals on top of harsher BG vocals on most tracks.
This is a stellar set of hard-hitting tracks of melodic post hardcore tunes. Favorite track: Wasting Space.

Track Name: Forward Eyes
Something to tell you
something to tell you
nothing on my mind I'm afraid that I've got nothing
I've got nothing whether you want me to
being content makes others jealous from my point of view
I've still got nothing to form into words
that would make any sense to you

Forward eyes
see what you want them to
I realize I've lost my voice for you

Gotta get my head out
from the less thoughtful place it's been
bury my thoughts in a wooden box
some place I can't find them
the place it belongs
the place it belongs
where do I belong?

It's okay
we'll find another way
I've lost my voice for you
Track Name: Dragger
Sit on a train and I don't know where it's going
faster than walking but I still feel on the run
hit repeat too many times and I thought I'd
take a little venture outside my own mind
But I heard

The record around the single
and it doesn't seem as special anymore
one day everything that keeps me
alive and going's gonna kill me
I know

And I've been keeping everything at bay
instead of answers I just hopped another train
I haven't been to sleep since you saw me
been nothing but bad dreams where I just can't seem to breathe

Traincar, take me away
Track Name: Wasting Space
woke up just fine
to bright sunlight
no alarm, no schedule
right on time
I know I'm out
but I'll keep playing
tomorrow makes no difference now is now

I'm not afraid to get caught trying
get your shameful looks out of my face
forget trying, striving is a better word
when I look at you you're just wasting space

woke up just fine
and rubbed my eyes
feels like they haven't been open for a while
I know I'm out
but I'll keep playing
tomorrow makes no difference now is now

let me fade away
let me learn to breathe
I'll never learn to live If you keep smothering me
Track Name: Crook
I'm a fucking crook
I stole from you
and those things I took
you can't undo
and you won't get back
And I wanted to get there
the place where I've got
nothing on my hands
If I could take it back
my hands have been stained red
longer than I'd like to admit
can't get it off my chest
Check for your belongings
you might be missing something
I heard a thief is on the loose
that looks like me
and do you believe?
that I could be the creep
that stole from all the people
close enough to me
As your back is turned
I'm taking as mine all the things
that you've earned
as If I deserve
as If I deserve
Track Name: Sink To The Bottom
I'm a lonely shade
been pulling away at my faults that crumble beneath me
letting go of my comforts
hoping my eyes could meet something better in between
and I emptied out my lungs
putting holes through my chest
sank to the bottom so that I could find my way back up again
I'm not coming back to you

Give me two stones
and skip them for me too
I'm looking at the pond but I
forgot what I'm supposed to do

We were golden
we carried our hearts like burdens
something you gotta hold onto
even though it's been hurting
and I thought I told you
this is who I am
we could never go back
never part of the plan
