about

Alive & Well is an acoustic EP written to a number of people in our lives who are suffering from depression or loss of loved ones etc. This is our attempt to reach out to those people, and any who feel like they are in the same spot, in the way we know best. What you are experiencing now is not in your head, it's real, and you can survive it. We love you, you matter.

Track Name: Contrast (Abridged)
Like to think just in the dark
Sun lets out too much
Open up the lens, curtain
Exposure's not that bad
You need it to see
Colors from the shades
Colors from the shades
--------------------------------------
Can we get back
To where we were
Was it fleeting
or can we make it last

Can we get back
To where we were
Was it fleeting
or can we make it last
---------------------------------------
Shadows cast by tunnels
make them worth the trip
Canyons form the hills
God knows I could use the lift
---------------------------------------
Ears back like a dog you limped back home
You did the right thing did the right thing so you're told
Ears back like a dog you limped back home
You did the right thing did the right thing now you know
---------------------------------------
Can we get back
To where we were
Was it fleeting
or can we make it last

Can we get back
To where we were
Was it fleeting
or can we make it
Track Name: Frank
When the rain soaks through
and you can't talk yourself into
The only thing you've been dreaming about for days
There's only one option now
but you can't tell how to go about
Choosing the right way all of the time
------------------------------------------------
Is it worth your time to keep trying
Or to live with yourself knowing and lying
That you knew, it was always for the best
------------------------------------------------
It can be a sad reality where you find yourself
And you'll never beat that song you heard last night
With the pen stuck to the paper frozen motionless
You find yourself sitting once again
------------------------------------------------
Is it worth your time to keep trying
Or to live with yourself knowing and lying
That you knew, it was always for the best
------------------------------------------------
When the rain soaks through
And you can't talk yourself into
The only thing you've been dreaming about for days

The tingling on your tongue
Tells the tale of growing up
and your coming of age story's coming to it's end.
Track Name: History, The Weather and AMC
The unnatural synthetic stitches
In bronze pull you in
Frayed at the edge but you don't notice
Taste the color but not the ink
Dark green homegrown watch heads become tail lights
Perfectly good day
And you realize you'll never see
Them the same
--------------------------------------------
They keep telling you this is the last time
So say your goodbyes
Say goodbye but you decide that you see it
Just the way that it was
But that cancer it won't listen
And one day it'll catch up to him
Finally dragging his demeanor down
I have to work out too the lining
Cause all I see are clouds
--------------------------------------------
Just remember
Tell me you'll remember
But it's only a storm
The sun can still shine through can still shine through
Just remember
Tell me you'll remember
But it's only a storm
No matter how long
--------------------------------------------
You may not listen to me
While you're fighting demons in your dreams
And I'm sure that you're not the only one
You're just the only one
Who can recall

And after drinks the night before
became a shouting match and I pray
You don't mean what you said
But you said what you meant
Not what you knew

You may not listen to me
While you're fighting demons in your dreams
Before you heard just what she said
Before you heard
Before you heard what she said
Please tell me you're lying
Like they all used to
--------------------------------------------
Just remember
Tell me you'll remember
But it's only a storm
The sun can still shine through can still shine through
--------------------------------------------
Just remember
Tell me you'll remember
But it's only a storm
The sun can still shine through can still shine through
Just remember
Tell me you'll remember
But it's only a storm
The sun can still shine through can still shine through
Just remember
Tell me you'll remember
But it's only a storm
No matter how long
