about

First off, Thank you for taking the time to check us out!
This is it our first release, we hope you dig it as much as we do.

All songs written and performed by As We Age.
All tracking and mixing was done at The Recording Company in
Esperance, NY by Tim Lynch and assistant sound engineers
Chris Maloy and Rick Sullivan.
Mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music.

Thank you to Ian, Mike, and Nick P's families for letting us use their houses for practice, thanks to Nick Lessons dad and the guys at C&B Customs for letting us use the basement, a HUGE thanks to Tim for all the time he spent working with us, being patient while we figured out how we wanted to do things, feeding us, giving us somewhere to crash while we wrote and recorded, and just being an all around great guy to work with, and finally thanks again to any of you that take time to listen to this album or read the lyrics or download/pay for what we worked so hard on.
It means the world to us.

Track Name: Failures
When everyone you know has changed
You're trying to make it through each day
Rolling around not getting enough sleep
I'm stuck in my same way
Track Name: Thin Ice
You assumed you were a crowd favorite
You thought that all of the talk was about you
Its pins and needles hearing your voice
But what choice do I have?
When you talk it's just a wave of words
A wave of useless words

I want you to feel what I feel
But you're too wrapped up to see the signs
If I don't get my hopes up you can't let me down

Stand down and do whatever you say
This is your name I don't get a say
You want it when you want it
It's never on my terms
I wait around for you to make a sound
But all of the talks about your own selfish concerns.

You're so full of your goddamn self
That you don't see how arrogant you sound

I want you to feel what I feel
But you're too wrapped up to see the signs
If I don't get my hopes up you can't let me down
Track Name: Slow
Time my biggest enemy
No matter what it always seems to get ahead of me

Looking into the future I am scared
The most scared I've been in a long time
What am I going to do with my life? I haven't begun to figure it out
And all my friends are leaving me in the dust

I'm seeing everyone I know grow and move on with their lives
And I feel like I'm stuck in the same place
And most of the time I feel like I'm doing something wrong with my life
I don't know
Maybe I'm just slow

Quit my job because I couldn't get paid
Just dicked around every single goddamn day
And what do i have to show for all the time i spent fucking miserable?
Sleeping through the day working all night long and

I'm seeing everyone I know grow and move on with their lives
And I feel like I'm stuck in the same place
And most of the time I feel like I'm doing something wrong with my life
I don't know
Maybe I'm just slow

And everything that i used to know
Seems so far gone now and it's left a hole
I'll try my best to forget and move on
Because everything can't be so miserable
(What am I going to do with my life? I haven't begun to figure it out
And what do i have to show for all the time i spent fucking miserable?)
Track Name: A Lesson In Distance
Tear the skin from my bones I don't need it anymore
It just makes me uncomfortable and well maybe
If it wasn't there then I'd be fine
Tear the skin from my face and neck well I don't need it anymore
It just makes me uncomfortable and well baby
If you weren't there maybe id be fine

You sleep so far away
Tonight
When you're right in my bed
In my
Mind

I should have known I've seen this a million times before
Now you'll never talk to me again
Tried too hard was too nice let all the stupid mistakes slide
Now we've grown so far apart

Rip this rotting piece of matter from my skull
It don't work for me no more
If it did then I wouldn't be in all this trouble that I'm in
I could be getting something done
Instead of falling in love with every pretty girl that smiles back at me

And end up having to ask
Who was in your bed
Last night

I should have known I've seen this a million times before
Now you'll never talk to me again
Tried too hard was too nice let all the stupid mistakes slide
Now we've grown so far apart
Track Name: Strung Out
I'm spreading myself too thin
Between the all day shits and
Late night trips
I just can't take it anymore

I've got to get out of here
Before I lose myself

To who the world wants me to be
Somewhere at the bottom of the glass
Lies the remnants of who I used to be

Sick and tired of all this time thats feeling wasted
In this dead end job where each days the same
Trying not to lose myself

To who the world wants me to be
Somewhere at the bottom of the glass
Lies the remnants of who I used to be

Of who I used to be

I'm just looking for some substance
Some hope some change to help me make it through each day
And I'm just looking for some substance
Some ray of light to help me hold on to my sanity

I've got to get out of here
Before I lose myself

To who the world wants me to be
Somewhere at the bottom of the glass
Lies the remnants of who I used to be

Of who I used to be

And I'm just looking for some substance
Some hope some change to help me make it through each day
Track Name: Behind Closed Doors
A Demon sleeps here in this house
And I've been waking him up
Asking for trouble
Picking fights I don't need to win
Stirring up past memories
That don't matter much anymore

I've been living behind closed doors for too long
Using any distraction to fill my time
I've been lost for so long
Now I'm coming back around
It's time to do something with myself before I end up
An old man full of regret

I've been telling lies to myself for so long
So I can sit inside all day and night
And not feel bad
When I ask myself
"Is this all I really need
to make it through life happy?"

I've been living behind closed doors for too long
Using any distraction to fill my time
I've been lost for so long
Now I'm coming back around
It's time to do something with myself before I end up
An old man full of regret


Is there a way
To keep this Demon at bay
For the rest of my life?

I'll Find a way
To keep this Demon at bay
For the rest of my life.
