about

This EP was derivative of an acoustic EP I was in the process of recording under the [tESs] alias. The album would've been called "Murdered We Lay". I wrote it after a break up, but once I finally had closure with that person I didn't feel the need to write much more material for it. These two songs in particular were finished (acoustically) at the time, but I always felt they could use further instrumentation. After spending another year on it, this is what I came up with.

My original liner note from 2010:

“ This is what was to bloom from the 2008 "Murdered We Lay" EP. "Emotions Provoked, Devotions Aside" tells a tale of the manifestation of pride intertwined with distrust and malice.
Hope you enjoy. ”

Track Name: Vanessa's Idea of Happiness
He doesn't get tired
He doesn't get hungry
He doesn't look handsome
He doesn't look ugly
Emotions provoked
Devotions aside
No one's going to tell him
How to swallow his pride

He only gets better
After he gets worse
He doesn't look sad
Thus it's part of his curse
Layers are shed while
Evolving inside
No one's going to tell him
How to swallow his pride

How to swallow his pride, (yeah)

(Start becoming aware!)
Track Name: Think Again
You think that you would
Know if I were here or there
You think that you would
Know if I were round or square
I think that you think
The world is quite unfair

Think again
Think again

You think that you would
Know if I were here or there
You think that you would
Know if I were there or near
I think that you think that I think
The world is quite unfair

Think again

I'm trying
I'm trying
I'm getting by
Things are fine
I'm trying
(Emotions Provoked)
I'm trying
(Devotions Aside)
I'm getting by
(No one's going to tell him how to)
Swallow my (his) pride.
