Wait For Me 04:07
wait i'm still running late i lost track of time but i'm on my way so please stay don't leave before life may tear down what you know and leave it be may is colder than i remember you're so devout, tell it to this persistent mind there's no need to apologize so you stay there it goes and you're waiting all along so you stay there she goes and you're waiting for the fall when i go, won't you wait for me?

i've been looking for a friend and running out of time we're just getting started and i'll be here all night spent my time out on the ledge throwing it in the river white and yellow in the valley can't say i ever met her it's a third past four in the afternoon breathe it in and breathe it out before it starts to stick around an unwelcome neighbor it's best to call before they're gone and i've been feeling kind of down let's just blame it on the sun cause it's been like this for years and i can't be the only one cause it's a third past four in the afternoon love it more cause it ends so soon third past four in the afternoon love it more cause it ends so soon bleeding down to the final days tell me, what else makes you feel this way?

Breakdown 05:06
i swear it's been a long time since you came through that door and told me that it wasn't gonna work out anymore i know we've grown we were younger and less mature but still i'm not sure that i won't break down much less to say now it's all in the back of my mind it's not about who's to blame but i feel lesser for having led her down a road i can't confirm but still, i don't feel the same get me out of here we're just too far from home and my back reminds me of the places that we've gone so i close my eyes think of better times and try to dream whatever i want to cause it's easier when you're in the other's shoes i'm stoic, i'm scared to silence cause i could have given you more oh, i'm breaking down i'm breaking down no, it's easier when you're in the other's shoes i'm stoic, i'm scared to silence cause i could have given you more

western/time 05:47
finding space under broken limbs troubled choir singing broken hymns and i have not met what i call him but i will answer his call and time has me by the neck as it has us all so twenty more, sixty more to wait the quarter pole at a record pace finding space under broken limbs troubled choir, singing broken hymns and i have not met what i call him but i will answer his call so if i go, fuck a monument leave it all for my absent friends put a smile on my father's face and if i go, let me go with grace

about

the title of this record comes from a discussion group i joined my junior year of college. it blends politics, religion and philosophy into two hours of debate once every monday night. there was much pomp and circumstance around the debate topics; we'd get a super professional-looking email each weekend with a prompt and quotes to kick-start our thoughts. they'd always start with

Resolved,

then go into whatever the actual topic was. i grew to appreciate the word "resolved" as it was used in the prompt - it's normally used to describe something ending, but in this case, it marked the *beginning* of a conversation.

resolved is an ending and a beginning.

i originally wanted to write another full-length record after dumb luck, but slowly realized that songs don't flow out of an artist at the same rate all the time. dumb luck had a story to follow - that's why there were tracks on there that we didn't ever really play live, they just served the story - and this record doesn't do that.

these songs were crafted out of my experience over the past year. mental health will always be close to the center of this music, and this record reflects what's happened - instead of being able to face depression like an enemy with a weapon waiting to be killed, it's changed. it's become harder to identify. it doesn't slap me across the face, it just paralyzes me. i can't move. can't respond to texts. can't check my grades. can't get out of bed.

the lyrics on this ep attempt to show the effects of this paralysis through my experiences over the past year. it affected my attendance at important events, how i spent my "free" time, how i pushed myself away from relationships, and it eventually brought me right back to the edge.

the songs were much more of a group effort this time around. i brought some extremely rough demos to the band, and through a summer of practice, touring and recording, possibly our last, we collectively turned them into six separate pieces of our world.

they are yours now.
