“Music speaks to people. Every facet of our lives usually has music attached to it somewhere. It’s amazing to contribute to that; a little bit of happiness in someone’s life.” -Zelena Hull

EP 6ftunder

My parent’s and I call this the sin album. I talk about many issues including unfair treatment, the inability to live up to expectations, and the inner nature of people. The best stories have a moral lesson to them and I wanted to incorporate that lesson here.

     6ftunder~ People unfairly judge others. 6Ft under is about trying to claw your way out of a bad situation. This song addresses the fact that people will find a reason to dislike you and no matter what you do there’s some people you will never please. “Run like hell it ain’t a spell Warlock’s thumb, oh don’t be dumb” This line references the Salem witch trails. Often when someone was born with two thumbs they were considered a witch. You have to embrace the fact that there’s no way to be universally liked by everyone. There’s no way to control someone else’s thoughts or words, but you can control your own. 6Ftunder also points out the hypocrisy that unpins the morality of judgmental people. True for me, but not for thee.

Lyrics:

I was born six feet under

Now I’m running for cover

I’ve been digging forever

Before I’m a goner

Tow down into the ground

They say missy you’ve been messing around

But I’m not doing anything

Boy words can sting

Run like hell it ain’t a spell

Warlock’s thumb, oh don’t be dumb

Messing some place, I haven’t been

When you’re the one who’s sinned

I was born six feet under

Now I’m running for cover

I’ve been digging forever

Before I’m a goner

They call me bad news

But all I’ve doing is singing the blues

And boy I ain’t gonna lose

There ain’t no point in going back

There ain’t no return

There’s no redemption here

I’m not going down

I was born six feet under

Now I’m running for cover

I’ve been digging forever

Before I’m a goner

I was born six feet under

Now I’m running for cover

I’ve been digging forever

Before I’m a goner

6ftunder live:

     Born and Raised~ This song is about struggle between the darkest and lightest part of ourselves. The inner demons we wrestle with at night, the dark thoughts that creep into the back of our minds, and the inability to live up to other people’s expectations. No matter how much you try sometimes things don’t work out. This song also addresses the larger societal issue of the lack of care others take. Most people stay in their own little world and don’t care about yours. Something might seem huge to you, but other people wouldn’t even notice it.

Lyrics:

I was born and I was raised to be good always

But where oh where did I go so wrong

Save my brother, love my mother

That’s what it’s always been

But it’s hard to do good

When everyone else surrenders to their sins

I was born and I was raised to be good always

But where oh where did I go so wrong

Oh life my sympathies for I’ve made many enemies

I’ve tried to do better, even though most will never care

It’s worth it’s weight in gold

I was born and I was raised to be good always

But where oh where did I go so wrong

Crumbling at the seams, my darkest sins deep in my dreams

It’s hard to be good even though you know you should

Save my brother, love my mother

That’s what it’s always been

But it’s hard to do good

When everyone else surrenders to their sins

I was born and I was raised to be good always

But where oh where did I go so wrong

Born and Raised lyric video:

     Fire~ If you judge solely on looks, you’ll be solely disappointed. Deceit, loneliness, innocence, and desperation can lead anyone into making a bad choice. In Fire a young man is enamored by a beauty, while his best friend is trying to talk him  out of it. Even if she looks nice, it can be too good to be true. In this case it is. She is known to hurt you in any possible way, however it does not deter him. He falls deeply in love and she starts to take advantage of him, because he is unable to see the true monster underneath. This song represents his friend’s last attempt to reason with him. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover.

Lyrics:

Face like an angel, Tricks like a demon

Gonna leave you dreaming

Gonna start screaming and aching, thinking about her

Boy playing with fire

Fire fire fire

She’ll sweep off your feet, but she ain’t an angel

Everyone has bad and good but she ain’t doing what she should

Boy she’ll sweep you off your feet, but your bound to hit the ground.

Don’t matter how much you love her, boy your playing with fire.

Face like an angel, Tricks like a demon

Gonna leave you dreaming

Gonna start screaming and aching, thinking about her

Boy playing with fire

She’ll make you feel special, then break you in two

You have no idea what she has in store for you

You don’t know her, the best I can tell you now

Is don’t love her she’s playing with fire!

Face like an angel, Tricks like a demon

Gonna leave you dreaming

Gonna start screaming and aching, thinking about her

Face like an angel, Tricks like a demon

Gonna leave you dreaming

Gonna start screaming and aching, thinking about her

Boy playing with fire

Fire fire fire fire

Burn Burn

Fire Lyric video:

     Time~ Timing something can be hard. It never know if your late or it’s too soon. This song is about how often people can have remorse to things they say yes to in the moment. When there’s a big decision to be made you need to contemplate it. Don’t rush and don’t be emotional when making your mind up. There needs to be objectivity when planing the future. It’s a hard thing to do but you need to keep your heart out of decisions and learn to take rejection. This song also tackles the subject of not knowing whether someone likes you, or if you’ve made them uncomfortable.

Lyrics:

Take it easy, one step at a time he says to me

Bad intentions accidental romance

I can see it now, won’t leave me alone

Could I be wrong time’s funny that way

Confused or spinning on the top of my head

Gonna say he’s gonna regret it

Time will take it’s course

And we will all have remorse

There’s a time for love and a time for hate

But you never know when it’s too late

Or when you passed the line

It gets harder every time.

Going oh… not another…oh

No no no… not another one

Don’t blow it, control it

Keep saying that

Bad relations

Same thing over and over

There’s a time for love and a time for hate

But you never know when it’s too late

Or when you passed the line

It gets harder every time.

I can see it now

Won’t let me go

Hard to get

Maybe time will regret it

There’s a time for love and a time for hate

But you never know when it’s too late

Or when you passed the line

It gets harder every time.

There’s a time for love and a time for hate

But you never know when it’s too late

Or when you passed the line

It gets harder every time.

Hummm….

Oh…..

No…

Time lyric video:

     Walk On By~ This song is about feeling left behind by other people. Live moves on whether you want it to or not. You have to understand how to live for you in a compassionate way. Even if everyone else does not care, that does not mean you shouldn’t either. Sometimes you got to cut off your darker emotions and look at yourself objectively. Walk On By means to understand that if someone isn’t with you, don’t dwell on it or take it as a personal attack. You need to live for you, help others, and if someone else doesn’t like you, so be it.

Lyrics:

For a long while I was stranger

Then I stumbled again and now your my friend

But now I’ve fallen flat on my face again

I hope this failure will end

I’m tired of every waking moment destroying my life.

I’m tired of every heart break got to go through, cuts me like a knife

Then forget me again, how could this be

Maybe this is my destiny to walk on by

Good things bad things what’s the difference

Cause I’m always the bad one

Even if I’m not the one who shot the gun

I’m falling flat on my face

I’m tired of every waking moment destroying my life.

I’m tired of every heart break got to go through, cuts me like a knife

Then forget me again, how could this be

Maybe this is my destiny to walk on by

Friends enemies can you give me room please

Hurt bleeding nobody cares

Unless they’ve fallen flat on their face

No matter what I do, there’s always people that’ll hate you

Oh

I’m tired of every waking moment destroying my life.

I’m tired of every heart break got to go through, cuts me like a knife

Then forget me again, how could this be

Maybe this is my destiny to walk on by

walk on by

walk on by

walk on by
