about

The unreleased EP... finally released! This was being worked on near the end of 2013, and ceased production when As Tall As Cliffs went on "indefinite hiatus".

After hearing some amazing support from random people at some parties during the summer of 2015, Earl asked Cole for the unfinished studio files, determined to finish what we started.

Track Name: Set the Record Straight
They say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger
But I've been down and weaker than ever
You'll soon realize you're not as clever
As you once thought and I'm

Sick and tired of your selfish bullshit
You should make up your mind
But your opinion is worthless
You know I'd never judge a book by its cover
But I'm on your last page

[Chorus]
I can't take any more of this (Can't take anymore)
I swear when I'm gone I won't reminisce
On the plans that we made
The plans that have changed us
And I'm starting to see you've been
(Wrong)
For so long
I hope you remember how we were
Late entry

These cuts and bruises only hurt on the inside
I realize what you have
You always hide
And I'm not a fan anymore
So pack your bags
Get off my floor

[Chorus]
I can't take any more of this (Can't take anymore)
I swear when I'm gone I won't reminisce
On the plans that we made
The plans that have changed us
And I'm starting to see you've been
(Wrong)
For so long
I hope you remember how we were
Late entry

[Bridge]
Falling apart and I know everyone you've ever faked [x4]

[Chorus]
I can't take any more of this (Can't take anymore)
I swear when I'm gone I won't reminisce
On the plans that we made
The plans that have changed us
And I'm starting to see you've been
(Wrong)
For so long
I hope you remember how we were
Late entry
Track Name: I'd Rather Be a Failure at 16 Than a Failure at 26
Lost myself
Along a boulevard
Your street's too thin
And paved with hearts
I walked alone
And pray to god
To never find me

[Chorus]
With the stereo turned on
To that shitty Nirvana song
I wonder where I'm driving to
Heading north on the highway
Last four years in the ashtray
It's the start of ending
Something new

Such greasy hair, such sulking eyes
But darling please
Believe me (Believe me)
Tired sleep, I've overslept
Careful of each waking step
I'm run down

[Chorus]
With the stereo turned on
To that shitty Nirvana song
I wonder where I'm driving to
Heading north on the highway
Last four years in the ashtray
It's the start of ending
Something new

(I'm run down)
[Breakdown]

[Chorus]
With the stereo turned on
To that shitty Nirvana song
I wonder where I'm driving to
Heading north on the highway
Last four years in the ashtray
It's the start of ending
Something new

[Outro]
Took the two door car
On a four day journey
To a town five hundred miles away
And now that I've found
There ain't a soul in this ghost town
I'm searching for a home to stay
Track Name: Losing Sleep (Unfinished)
(That's enough out of you!)

[Chorus Parts]
And now it's finally over
Bury me at sea
Set sail in search of you
Got lost
Finding me



*Note: Earl Wheeler and Aaron Trindorfer had originally intended to write new verses and track them, as the original verses were lost and never recorded, but time constraints and technical difficulties lead to the track having to be mastered with very little further editing.
