EP2 Now Underway

Posted by Jason On May - 3 - 2009

We’ve started into the recording phase of EP2.  This is the area where I start to get nervous.  I can write songs all day, but the recording can make a good song lackluster.  So I’m trying to add some spit and shine to these few songs, and trying to capture them correctly.

I will say, you’ve never heard anything like this from JUF before.  The first song is a “jam” as Todd says.  It’s fairly aggressive, with an epic chorus.  The second song, is a straight ahead rocker with a unique little arrangement.  You can hear a sneak peek of the third song on the EP2 page.

Also, thank you to everyone who has downloaded and spread the word about our free EP project.  We’ve already seen a ton of downloads of EP1, and hope to see even more as we continue through this project.

Thanks!

Like Waves, Like Sea – Lyrics

Posted by Jason On April - 1 - 2009

Like Waves, Like Sea (EP1)

Maybe You could tell me why
I keep pushing
Why I even try

All these thoughts
They temper me
They keep moving
Waving like the sea

If there’s a God
Looking down below
I hope He sees
All that He controls
And if He chooses
Not to intervene
Maybe it’s best
I don’t succeed

Maybe I have missed the point
Caught up in the
Details and the sort

I could fight to no avail
Though He slay me
I will not despair

(Chorus)

And I collide
With the fate I try to hide
Shaken to my roots

And all I know
Has been tossed and turned
Like waves, like sea

Maybe You could tell me why
Everything is broken
Turned up dry

If there’s a God
He’s looking down below
I hope He sees
All that He controls
And if He chooses
Not to intervene
Maybe it’s best
I don’t succeed

I hope it’s best
I don’t succeed

I trust it’s best
I don’t succeed

Icarus – Lyrics

Posted by Jason On April - 1 - 2009

Icarus (EP1)

Set the tether to the heavens
All things new
It’s the age of progression
Awake in you

Building towers to the sun
Like Icarus upon the sky in flight
Are we not the chosen ones?
In you, it’s me
In me, it’s always true

Who loves you more?
Loves you more than I can?
Who loves you more?
Loves you when the chemicals react

We’re gods below the surface
Dawns anew
Like ghosts among the atoms
Free from rule

Setting up the temple walls
Tying up the feathers to suspend
We are now the one and all
In you, it’s me
In me, it’s always true

Who loves you more?
Loves you more than I can?
Who loves you more?
Loves you with the wings upon my back
Who gave you all?
Gave you all that you have?
Who loves you more?
Loves you when the chemicals

React to the visions
React to the voices
React to the water
Below us, the end of all
React to the coming
React to the going
React to the fear
That we’re wrong
And not alone at all

Tell me if the armor cracks
Tell me if the clocks are turning back
Over, and over
The sun, the heats attacks

Who loves you more?
Loves you more than I can?
Who loves you more?
Loves you with the wings upon my back
Who gave you all?
Gave you all that you have?
Who loves you more?
Loves you when the chemicals

Say – Lyrics

Posted by Jason On April - 1 - 2009

Say (EP1)

So much to say, in so many ways
So little time, for so many days
Feeling undone
Feeling like you’re just half awake

Have you lost it son?
Have you lost the Holy Ghost?
Are you speaking in tongues?
With no one to tell you so

The words fall like rain
But the words don’t
The words never

Say
The words never say anything
They don’t change
The words never change anything for me

You dig and you try
But you’re only moving ground
Ask yourself why
But answers remain unfound

You don’t talk when you speak
Because the words don’t
The words never

Say
The words never say anything
They don’t change
The words never change anything for me

Me and the voices in my head
Telling me things to do instead
Closing my eyes, yet unable to rest

The weight of the world
The weight of a million souls
Pressing upon
The fear that you’ll lose your own

You draw from the well
But the words don’t
The words never say

Say
The words never say anything
They don’t change
The words never change anything for me
