Being one without a reason giving my reality nothing, nothing never happens killing individuality won’t you scream it in my ear wasted hope and wasted year If it makes ya feel better just Howl it out clear the air and dispel the doubt to cut through the grey you’ve gotta scream and shout get a hold of your other side and just Howl it out may I be wise enough to know the difference between what I cannot change and what could break the stream Yeah I’ll take it on my face If you’ve got no better place chorus Red drips cold blurring angry past leaving, ripping, tearing I come to you at last chorus

When I first stared into your eyes. My heart hastened its beat. there was something, made my mouth go dry made me feel incomplete. I could already tell that you were something else. I had to win your love. I needed to hold you My own white winged dove. And even now as we entangle in the sweat I feel your breath, you ask me whether Don't guess, don't hope. don't bet, 'Cause I'll make sure we are forever. Love isn't real, if I'm not loving you. I remember the first time I fell I knew you were mine. You could have loved anyone else, But you chose me, and hell, that was fine. What is there left for me to say? No words can describe how I feel about you. When you're around, night turns to day, And the sun turns to meet you And even now as we entangle in the sweat I feel your breath, you ask me whether Don't guess, don't hope. don't bet, 'Cause I'll make sure we are forever. And even now as we entangle in the sweat I feel your breath, you ask me whether Don't guess, don't hope. don't bet, 'Cause I'll make sure we are forever. Love isn't real, If I'm not loving you. Love isn't real, if I'm not loving you. love isn’t real...

Look away please hide your eyes you know my vision’s based on size god has made my bed for me we’ll hide away where none will see Forever and a day as many miles to walk away where happiness begins don’t know where I parked my car again so just pack up and leave I’ve still got other souls to reave Never wonder never why another half a mile to buy Never one to fall from grace never one to fall if I landed on my face would you recognize me at all See us melting into blue I could never get that far from you still ignoring all the hype don’t you know that I’m too sick to type

Frenetic Words flow from my head uninterupted by the things like rhyme and reason rushing forward unpropelled by any preexisting forces I can’t help but open wide the cadence plagal falling forward once begun is only done with all of this frenetic energy call the kettle blacker than the coal it’s sitting on is was a choice to disregard all of the warnings made of paper plastic I can’t help but open wide the cadence plagal falling forward once begun is only half done with all of this frenetic energy Patronize, he won’t recognize when he fries Patronize, he won’t recognize when she fries Northern doors are broken by an unsuspecting asking all the questions only thought by fools and martyrs of the false vendetta I can’t help but open wide the cadence plagal falling forward once begun is only half done with all of this frenetic energy all of this frenetic energy all of this frenetic energy all of this frenetic energy

And now, here comes the sound So familiar, so enigmatic it’s heard so often, just pulls your heart out so round, and so despair second nature, to sadness a sense of longing, so prevailing No, I won’t be there No, I won’t be there the sound, just went underground (bridge) you better hit em right where it hurts or they might just hit you back yeah, they’re wearing the wrong color shirts you anticipate their attacks and, aw baby don’t let me hurt you now get as far away as you can you know they always got me lookin’ down again and again and again. (guitar solo) no ground, no resolution enough to spend, for days you can have it, if you just want it bad enough the hounds, I think they see me now so I guess I’ll, just see you later there is no boundary, once you’ve crossed it but No, I won’t be there No, I won’t be there the sound just went underground.

If you break it, they will come. Black and white is much easier to define Us and them looks better on paper wave a flag to those without one to wave I could do that, yeah I could do that, I could do that 1 2 3 4 this is why we go to war blame misplaced on the back of a humvee how much baggage can they take here come another thousand to help with that weight and boy you got to carry a long time, long time, long time 1 2 3 4 this is why we go to war if ya gotta say it gotta give me your hands and if ya gotta read it gotta give me your hands and if ya gotta think it gotta give me your hands and if ya gotta live it then give, me your open up and look inside ain’t no reason, where to hide feelin’ bad for those that died It aint the only reason that your mama cried no, no, no, no no, no, no, no no, no, no, no It ain’t the only reason that your mama cried ban the black and white lest you get painted yourself Take the time to change your mind and give the pain to someone else They say that you should never buy the first thing to cross your path Weigh your mind and it will be in time, the greatest service to the everlast

Fire up the cauldron bake another batch mix in all the courage may another hero hatch laying life down worthless the time grows ever long to fuel the great awaken pull the switch appease the throng Chorus They may come for us with blade they may come for us with torch swift of will and motive strong we’ll put them back in the ground where they belong Happy Ever Other or are you AFK wrinkled time like water leaking out of the display turn your turnip turnstile it’s just the second course Jacob’s lamentations moving forward no remorse Chorus and still they stormed the fortress singing “O vos omnes” o vos omnes qui transitis per viam attendite et videte si est dolor sicut dolor meus vide domine quoniam tribulor Dona nobis pacem but do we have the time breaking bleeding noses soon the crunches start to rhyme Flatter than a pancake but only half as moist let them try to stifle the vibrato in this voice Chorus several times

Hang it up by the fireside I can’t stand to be alone T’was the last thought before he died loosing spirit flesh and bone Earlier they’re risin’ ever self-surprising falling out within the game fascination climbing find no reason rhyming squaring up within the frame Bleed away from me 3x Breed away from me 3x see it clear even through the blinds the ascending diatonic work in progress means nothing more falling short of the neurotic Earlier they’re risin’ ever self-surprising falling out within the game fascination climbing find no reason rhyming squaring up within the frame Bleed away from me 3x Breed away from me 3x terror in the moonlight stripped away cushioned by desire, held at bay AND THAT’S THE WAY!!! Earlier they’re risin’ ever self-surprising falling out within the game fascination climbing find no reason rhyming squaring up within the frame Bleed away from me 3x Breed away from me 3x

There's a flicker of hope tonight As I gaze upon the stars and sky the heaven’s shines so bright And all is here for you and me. Chorus Onward and upward, to the forward of home Where no man may enter, and no man has come I shall make a living here in eternal sleep Thinking forever of you and me. At night I sit and think About all the times we did the same this life is just a wake As important as the single drop of rain Chorus Bridge I see the lights of Venus closing silent And I see the swirls of Jupiter ever violent Mars is flying in a red twirl While I see the moon as a distant world vocal cadenza now I must sojourn But I will come from stars again To roam the earth and lights Emanating from your stargazing eyes chorus
12.
Feel the earth beneath my feet heavy paste so sickly sweet but where were you along the burning meat flakes of ash to smear the wheat CHORUS I’m still standing here away from the flames though you feel me near I couldn’t be more far away peel the chalky powder pull waiting ranks sweat through the wool remind me why my cup’s not full smash the horns and take the pill CHORUS lay back and ignite there is no wrong from right styrofoam and gasoline don’t get it in your eye (repeat) nothing left to burn nothing left to melt nothing left to dry nothing left is felt Turn of phrase then off to jail walk for days skin cloven shale indeed the right to tip the scale father blaze extinguished in the hail CHORUS I’m still standing here (repeat several times)

Coyote came to earth as a clean-up man fix the mess and get the world redressed that was the only plan But not alone, no, he was given a brother The fox was made, give coyote the aid These instructions spoken to the other Step four times if you find me dead, Step four times I come back again step over me Step four times if you find me dead, Step four times I come back again step over me Then, one day coyote, was struck with an arrow there was blood on his chest and fox, he knew from the mess this would surely be a fatal blow Kneeling, weeping, by his brother, stone dead Not even a fight, this fallen Desert Knight, but fox remembered the words he said Step four times if you find me dead, Step four times I come back again step over me Step four times if you find me dead, Step four times I come back again step over me Never will pay for my fiery theft come back even if one hair is left Never will pay for my fiery theft come back even if one hair is left Eventually fox grew old and tired couldn’t keep up with coyote having never been rewired He fell to the earth, never to take that step again glancing behind, coyote turned to find his brother was forever dead. He started to step, step, step... ect over and over just step, step How many steps to bring you back to me Oh don’t you leave me now! oh, no, I don’t want it to end no, not yet.

about

The College Years is the first album by Look Left. Originally released in July of 2010, after a few months locked in a public college dorm room, Jared Clark, Derek Wilber, and Andrew Cotts crawled from the hot, stinking, sweaty cube clutching a hard drive. This is what that hard drive contained. It's pretty cool.

ALSO! Buying this album digitally gives you free bonus extras. An exclusive WIP sketch of the cover art and a free AMATEUR music video. That's right, it was shot on a flip cam and it's for a song you'll never expect.
