Dave Wreckoning I'm coming out of a decade long musical hiatus. The last punk band to really move me was from the Bay (American Steel), so it's no surprise that I returned there for inspiration. Can't Swim is absolutely worth a listen for fans of Lawrence Arms or Taking Back Sunday. I'm sure there are much better comparisons - if that's you thing - but as I said, I've been out of the game for a long time. Thank you to Can't Swim for inspiring me to play again.

Brandon Brittle Fantastic opening EP by a band promising to blend pop-punk with post-hardcore in a brilliant way. Definitely worth the charge! Favorite track: Your Clothes.

Your Clothes 02:18
(Verse 1) Hide away things, they say. I know you'll end up blaming every single thing on me anyway Fall apart, no one will know. I see you nervous when you feel me ripping at your clothes (Chorus) Hear me, there's something I'm afraid to hide and my conscience could burn a hole through my brain And maybe, you're the only good left in my veins (Verse 2) Follow me where I walk, I wanna take you to a place where we're alone so I can hear you talk Put your mouth right on mine, I wanna prove that I'm a total waste of all your time (Chorus) (Outro) I can't fix you, I can't fix me, I can't. I don't need it, I don't this, you do. I can't lose you, I don't want this. Take it away from me
Come Home 02:31
Heard everything on the first floor Where they said you were rushed From your front door So please tell me where Ran up the stairs in a heartbeat Where I read off your name from a time sheet So please tell me where What an awful curse to see you at your worst So come home now (I'm not fine, I'm not what I say I am) (I've lost hope, I've lost hope in everything) With your tiny frame I swore I'd block the pain So come home now Lost everything with a mistake Thinking back all the times that you had faith So please tell me where If I could stand up taller than the tallest of the trees Would you treat me like a big brother? I gave you all the time I had But you wanted more, I did my best so why bother?
Right Choice 03:31
I feel it now and it won't stop Take me back to the place where we first start (lie awake thinking, bad thoughts keep creeping) I'm so ashamed of that one night Put your hands on my eyes just to block the light (hiding in the seems) You call me up on the phone And you tell me you're leaving What can I take to stop from feeling A sea in my path that I can't swim All the strength that we had starts to wear thin (falling out of grace, memories are misplaced) Time takes a toll as we both know Trampled on, broken down, nothing left to show (regrets all sink in, underneath my skin) You call me up on the phone (no, I'm not the right choice) And you tell me you're leaving (I gave you nothing that you wanted) What can I take to stop from feeling (I gave you nothing that you wanted) Are my hands too weak to break The ties you made won't go away I can't find the words to make you stay Are there some who made it through Without a scratch, without a bruise? Let's make a toast to ones who ran away You call me up on the phone And you tell me you're leaving What can I do to show I need you
Way It Was 02:31
I heard you kicked holes in your apartment They came to pick you up off the floor You said you've been alright since we last talked I guess I don't know you anymore I'm finding out its not the way it was Just not the way it was Do I believe what you said, was it all true? I'm longing for the comfort of home I've lost touch with the people I know I heard you filled up the bath with poison It ripped of the skin on both your legs You said you were stranded there with no help I guess you were all too proud to beg There's a fine line separating ones you love From the ones you keep just to have someone And I'm alone now Came to terms with thinking I'm the one to blame Cause I fill my voids with mistakes I make And I'm alone now
Witnessing feeling of your discontent While I try to mull it over all inside my head I can't rebuild this mess I made Distance between us has been so confined Just the sound of your voice puts fire to my spine I walked away I might never fall back asleep Losing myself thinking of that place The words you said when you saw my face It's all been done Finding it hard to forget her name If I'm the stray, who's the one to blame? It's all be done Listing the problems that I should of known Thought you said you would be fine If you were on your own I won't be there to catch your fall Can I please undo what I've done A death deserves a name, I've got all my life to bare this pain
