about

Candy Eyes is a concept album about an existentially souring relationship consisting of songs which were never intended to be part of a concept. The songs were written 2008 to 2011 and were recorded 2010 to 2011 on less than professional equipment in an apartment living room with a little less than appropriate courtesy for the neighbors.

Track Name: Struggling in the Breeze
So you thought if you could
Shut everyone out you would
Be as happy as you could ever be

You led a miserable life
You’ll face a miserable death
Priorities unaffected by reality

There’s no going back home
You burnt that bridge long ago
And all you’ve got to show for it
is that tear stained pillow - on your bed

I guess I’ll never know
Why I have to fight
To get you closer to me

It shouldn’t be a struggle
It should be a breeze

Insecurities are dragging you to the ground
Where you always knew you’d be

And yet you still can’t see
That all your schemes
Are pulling you apart
At the seams

So I’m asking myself
Another answerless question
What is pointing me in your direction?

I guess I’ll never know
Why I have to fight
To get you closer to me

It shouldn’t be a struggle
It should be a breeze

It shouldn’t be struggle
Why go through the trouble?
And wind up on my knees

I guess I’ll never know
Why I have to fight
To get you closer to me

It shouldn’t be a struggle
It should be a breeze

It shouldn’t be struggle
Why go through the trouble?
I’ve been seeing double
All as I stumble
Pull me from the rubble
But I’ll still crumble
And wind up on my knees
Track Name: At Least It's Over
Bodies line the floor
So I don’t have to feel the cold tiles anymore

It’s like I’m walking on egg shells
Instead I’m stomping in skulls

It’s what I do for myself
That’s what really counts

Rolling on the floor together
Doing what we were put on the earth to do

So much time is wasted on the offensive
And I don’t even know what it is that I’m trying to prove

If I see you again
I won’t have the courage
To look deep into your eyes
And allow my feelings to flourish

Tell you everything I need you to know
Ask you questions about everything I don’t
But I can’t say it’ll help
But I can’t say it won’t hurt

At least it’s over
This night has changed everything for me
If not for you
And it’ll start all over
This night will have a profound effect on my life
And it’ll start all over
This night will be a weight on my shoulders
On my shoulders
Track Name: Tall, Dark And For Ransom
Hello old friend, how have you been?
It’s been a while since we’ve seen each other eye to eye
You’ve haven’t changed one bit
Still spend most of your effort staying kempt
And of this I’m not surprised

And I wouldn’t want it any other way

If I have to spend just one more second
On my appearance
Then I’m going to blow
Do I have to scream to get any attention?
Or should I just sit back and enjoy the show?

It’s not you fault I don’t have anyone to hold
The world has left beaten and bruised and thrown in the cold
But I keep no grudges against those who’ve done me wrong
It’s a sad existence documented in this song

And I wouldn’t want it any other way

If I have to spend just one more second
On my appearance
Then I’m going to blow
Do I have to scream to get any attention?
Or should I just sit back and enjoy the show?

If I have to spend just one more second
On my appearance
Then I’m going to blow
Do I have to scream to get any attention?
Or should I just sit back and enjoy the destruction?

Enjoy the destruction

I’ve got a plan
I’m going to run away from my home
Find a new place to live
A place to call my own
Track Name: This Isn't Love
This song’s for you
It’s written to prove
That I can meet all your demands
I’m not gonna break
When you pull out my heart
And watch it beat in the palm of your hand
Don’t expect you to return
All of my organs to their proper place
They’ll be fine on the floor
Underneath your feet

I’m gonna do
Everything I have to do
To show you
That you belong to me

From a broken home
Put back the pieces
Just to find that I’m still alone
And that’s why I believe
I’m better off with two mouths to feed
It’s not enough to be wanted
I need to be worshiped
Second best is not enough
When it comes to your love

I’m gonna do
Everything I have to do
To show you
That you belong to me

This isn’t love, it’s dependence
As for the difference, I don’t have a clue
But fighting our urges and facing our demons
Is not worth the effort, this will have to do

This will have to do
You will have to do
I'll have to make do
(I'll have to make it through)
Stuck here with you
Track Name: Un Scene
Good things come to those who wait
Take me, break me, shake me, I’m late
“Didn’t you notice the passing of time?”
Once again I have realized my crime

Shit luck, I’m fucked, break out the liquor
Drowning in bourbon while the lights flicker
There’s nothing that I know for sure
She’s my ignorance's cure

Leave me, I’m already lonely without her
Because my pride resides within her
Trying to escape before the world breaks my legs
I’ve got nothing, still attempting to save face

Shaking, sweating, nervous, still waiting
Shame in retreating, no use for complaining
Take my lumps like every other person
Trade my personality for a new version

Leave me, I’m already lonely without her
Because my pride resides within her
Trying to escape before the world breaks my legs
I’ve got nothing, still attempting to save face
Track Name: Such A Character
Insert name, insert face
I am a clean slate
Whatever character you need
I'll be, I'll be

Insert verb, insert adjectives
Place me in a setting
One that leads to all kinds of sticky situations
That'll make you laugh with all your friends 
At my expense

Insert words into my mouth
Let me fumble, let me stumble around
With an assonance that makes no sense
I’ve come to the conclusion that
I’m not real

First a conflict
Then a climax
But by that time I won’t give a damn
You’ve taken all you gave to me
And in return you burned my feet
So I declare
It’s the end
Track Name: Okay
All my thoughts are failures
To convince myself and my foes
Every lyric is a demon
I can’t get under control

All I can do
Is sit back and wait
For an epiphany to break

Actualization is a journey
Traveling a mile a minute
With nothing but uncertainty
From the start to the finish

All I can do
Is sit back and wait
For an epiphany to break
Think of something I can create
And make everything a-okay

All I can do
Is sit back and wait
For an epiphany to break
Think of something new to create
And make everything a-okay
Track Name: Dexter
Another season behind my shoulders
Just so long as things stay in the past
Book’s getting older, but chapters still fresh
There’s no filling this hole in my chest

All the loose ends have been tied tight
Nothing ahead to keep me up at night
Break out champagne, the killer’s been found
Enough of a story to keep me safe for now

Maybe it’s God or maybe it’s satan
Maybe it’s angels or maybe it’s demons
That drive me -- to do what I do
But I’ve got a code to get me through

What is my fate? Only God knows
One thing is certain: there’ll be forks in the road
Maintain facade, polish my mask
That’s how the past will stay in the past
