about

While SNAFU was working on writing music and recording demos for our follow-up album to 2009's "OutSide The Collective Hive" I went to our rehearsal space where we had been recording demos for what would become "SNAFU: The Album".

10/30/10- It had been a pretty epic year so far. The band was really coming into our own. We were building of the release of "Hive", but excited about the new material we were writing. it was also a year of moving past some great personal tragedies for me . So I was feeling very inspired.

On a crisp clear October night I went in and layed down these tracks.
All the songs were recorded inside of an hour and each one was done in the first take.

Two of the songs ,"No Surrender" and "Until It's Found", ended up on "SNAFU: The Album". The other four, including a cover of John Lennon's "Working Class Hero" can only be found here on this little EP.
I call it "One Session"

Track Name: Until It Found
We never had a chance to control events
We’re all stuck in trance
By circumstance I jumped the fence
In search of another path
By I still believe in life’s romance
Our time is borrowed
Can’t live for tomorrow
Grab today with open hands

As we face the dawn
we stand upon
yesterday’s tomorrow.
Grab it with open hands
Do what you can
Our time is borrowed.

All the consequences that caused my defenses
Are starting to melt away
I get the joke it’s all a hoax
I’m trying to rise above the fray
and I still believe in levity
But I’m starting to think maybe I’ve been tricked
I’m just another casualty

As we face the dawn
we stand upon
yesterday’s tomorrow.
Grab it with open hands
Do what you can
Our time is borrowed

Chorus:
We’re just animals that have gone crazy
Spinning on this sphere
Pacified by our society
And paralyzed by fear
That the ends always near.

When you’ve lost it all I’ll stay with you until it’s found.
When you’ve lost it all I’ll stay with you until it’s found.

It’s a crazy affirmation that we’re the ones in control.
It’s a mass masturbation of civilization’s ego.
When you’ve lost it all I’ll stay with you until it’s found.
When you’ve lost it all I’ll stay with you.
Track Name: My Own Way
I took my gun from the wrong side
I took my gun from the wrong side
As was not as fast as the killer
My blood flowed like a river
He's trying to
Take my life away
But I won't go today
I say, the devil may come
I will hang on
I will not run

I will stand
As tall as I can
And come what may
I'll go my own way

He's gonna shoot my mouth from the microphone
He's gonna shoot my mouth from the microphone
Cause he don't like what I say
He's coming to silence me
He's loaded up a round
pointed it toward the sound sound
Of my amplified voice
coming from the stage
But I won't change

I will stand
As tall as I can
And come what may
I'll go my own way
Track Name: Where The Road Meets The Sky
I'll stare the sun down
Until I'm faced with the dawn
I'll engage my enemies
without armor on

drawl your line in the sand
Build your walls to divide
Come across when you can
I need you on my side

The road up ahead
And the sky above
Are like the two of us

No more doubt to cast a shadow
Over my path
I shed the thick skin
That bears the scars of my past
Live every moment
Because the moment won't last
Once a wave reaches the shore
It's gone after the crash

The road up ahead
And the Sky Above
Are like the two of us
Track Name: No Surrender
I take my time, I take my time from no one.
Lost until I find, until I find a way to shed my skin
I tell the world a lonely story
Lost inside my ego’s glory

I’ll suffer my fate, suffer my fate for karma
Tomorrow’s a day to late, a day to late for sorrow
I’ll brake the chains that I’ve been in
A new conciseness is awakening

I can see that crazy look in your eyes
It’s a sharp, shiny, shifty dagger stuck in my side
You can steel my tomorrow

You can swallow my pride
Say what you will, go in for the kill

Chorus:
No surrender, No surrender
Right to the death I’ll shall defend
All I believe in

I’ve taken a fall, I’ve taken a fall before
Know the value of my soul, Know my real credit score
I don’t need to be the one in your debt
With compound interest on my regret

I’ve taken hit, taken a hit been bruised and beaten
No mater what you give, you know I will defeat you
Cause every wound turns into a scar
With a lesson learned on who we are

I can see that crazy look in your eyes
It’s a sharp, shiny, shifty dagger stuck in my side
You can steel my tomorrow

Chorus: (No Surrender...)

When the wind blows I won’t bend
No mater how much I shake
Cause tomorrow just might be a day to late
Are the answers meant to fool me
Into a faults sense of calm
Because the truth is no one knows what’s going on.
Track Name: The Alarmist
Everyone get ready
There's a break in the levy
There's a war flooding in
If we don't open up our eyes
We'll drown in their lies
As we cover up their sins

When all hope is falling desperately
And these strange days are calling out the alarmist in me
The search for truth is in our souls

So people understand
There's a war at hand
But there's no side for me
No dictator or politician
No science or religion
Could ever clam their truth
Is a guarantee

When all hope is falling desperately
And these strange days are calling out the alarmist in me
The search for truth is in our souls
