about

Seeing as we're still working on our full-band debut for 2016, we thought it would be a nice idea to do a little something-something for you all. Accostic is a short, acoustic EP with two songs we're planning for the upcoming album and another song by Nigel.

Track Name: Beautiful Bones (Acoustic)
She walks with grace
She walks with meaning
with each step she takes
She's the queen of her own domain

A smile that wins is on her face
And for once I don't mind being in second place
If losing just means I'll be next to her

So what's going on behind those pretty blue eyes?
Is she hiding something?
Is she hiding all her pain and insecurities?
Well, I got this much to say:

I'm a vagabond searching for a home
When I think about waking up next to your beautiful bones

It's no wonder why I'm feeling under the weather
With this black cloud always hanging above me

It's a side effect from the spell she casted
For the price of doctor's notes
Explaining my ongoing absence

I'm a vagabond searching for a home
When I think about waking up next to your beautiful bones
Move me like you do
And I'll be all your's if you'll be all mine too

I'm a vagabond searching for a home
When I think about waking up next to your beautiful bones
Move me like you do
And I'll be all your's if you'll be all mine too
Track Name: Let Me In (Acoustic)
Tell me, tell me, leading lady
Can you see your beauty fading
Underneath that facade you wear so well?
Tell me.

So tell me, tell me, baby, baby
Did you like all of those pet names
Even though you hate that romantic shit?

You're right; I over-react
So oblige me with your truths and facts
And don't you just love making a scene?
You're not an actress; you're a drama queen

Do you act and dress up to pretend
You are someone who you're not?
Does it make you sick to see what you become?

What would it take for you to get over yourself and start to listen
To the words I'm trying to say?
Won't you just...

What would you do if you listened to these songs?
Would you tell them I'm wrong?
Would you tell them I'm wrong?
You can't save face behind a mask

What would it take for you to get over yourself and start to listen
To the words I'm dying to say?
Won't you just...

Let me in
Let me in
Won't you just
Let me in
Let me in

So!
(Tell me, tell me)
All the reasons why it's alright
When you broke my heart and broke my boundaries
And now I'm petty?
At least I'm not a hypocrite

(Tell me, tell me)
How it feels when someone hurts you
(Like how you hurt me, like how you hurt me)
Well now, who's wrong?
Who do you think you are?

What would you do if you listened to these songs?
Would you tell them I'm wrong?
Would you tell them I'm wrong?
You can't save face behind a mask
Let me in, let me in, let me in!

Let me in
Let me in
Won't you just
Let me in
Let me in
Track Name: Softly
Sleep tight
Under street lights
With your head resting
In the space between
His shoulder and neck
You start to lose track
Where he stands

As a friend
As a brother
As a lover

Tell me, does he
Kiss you in ways I never have thought of?
Softly but not gently

Tell me, does he
Kiss you in ways I never have thought of?
Softly but not gently

Does he know
Does he know about me?
Does he know
Does he know about me?

Does he know
Does he know about me?
Does he know
Does he know about me?
