about

Recorded in 2011, mixed and mastered in my humble space capsule studio. Album pictures were taken from the Urban Lounge show earlier that year. This EP is played a lot live, drove to San Francisco played a show at Brainwash Cafe. A few months later I played a majority of the songs from this EP during the Battle of the Bands victory in 2011.

Now that the wait is over -
give me something better than a slap in the face
critic looking over my shoulder - x
making up the past - his own assumption - * - *

no matter what it takes -
I'll go with the breaks - * - *
no matter what it takes -
I'm with you tonight * - *

no matter what it takes -x
I'l go with the breaks - * - *
I'm yours
I'm yours all the way * - *

I'm ready for launch - x0x0

ready for launch in a new direction - * - * -
meet me there on the sunny side-
ready for launch with your attention - * - *
I'm flesh and blood with nowhere to hide

I've had time to think it over
Deserved so much better yet it makes no difference
My days of getting rattled are done for now - * - *
it didn't take much to be compromised - * - *
*
no matter what it takes - * - *
I'll go with the breaks - * - *
no matter what it takes - * - *
I'm ready for launch - * - *

Track Name: The Big Picture
"Spread the Love" ©®™Jesse Crawford 2011 Sodacon Music

when you've had enough - have you given up ?
try to straighten up -
and take a bow -

when you've had enough - have you given up ?
try to straighten up -
and take a bow -

spread the love
and the joy
of this life
although it's hard
to figure out
although it's work
try to remember
the big picture

when you've had enough - have you given up ?
try to straighten up -
and take a bow -
when you've had enough - have you given up ?
try try some more to -

spread the love

and the joy
of this life
millions of years
just to be here
and send a message
that I forgot -
I'm so sorry -

No matter who you are - you can go far -
Don't let anybody tell you different -
Track Name: Back to Alkaline
Back to Alkaline by Jesse Crawford ©® Sodacon Music 2011

Crash down - into the solemn sea -
I start swimming - - * - *

Freaks try to gip me they get out of control
Now I'm in their heads make them tumble and roll
Can't control everything - only yourself
Try to bring it all back to Alkaline - * - *

I see the big wave - coming up as I start to swim -
I start getting closer - and it starts to get steep in size -
The red horizon is a sign as I battle my way to the top -
as I arrive to the edge of the wave -

faster start to
fly - back to Alkaline - * - *

{verse 2}

A shining star -shoots in the night -
and crests along - the waterline

Can't function when consumption is out of control -
Spilled from the vat burned a hole in the floor - * - *
Have to watch what you're throwing down the hatch
Fire always starts from inside the house - * - *

{bridge - chorus}

I see the big wave - coming up as I start to swim -
I start getting closer - and it starts to get steep in size -
The red horizon is a sign as I battle my way to the top -
as I arrive to the edge of the bank -

faster start to
fly - back to Alkaline - * - *

Listen to my thoughts as they find their way into your mind -
I know your at it again at a rapid pace -
Even though I'm cranking up the volume on another set -
If we're playing it right - I start here with the crowd

Or we could wait for later -
Where's your sense of urgency? - * - *
I can feel when I'm needed - * - *
I can tell when I'm on your mind - *- *

Calling me through the void - sharing a link to my mind
Better than being stuck sleepwalking in line
Sirens ring in the void - xoxo

Then when your awake - and in a mood to spend some time
gonna have a walk - get food/espresso along the waterline -
head over the bridge trail up together - tell me those stories again
I want to hear them all from you - tell me all those stories again

Or we could wait for later -
it's not so big a deal in fact - * - *
I can feel when I'm needed - * - *
I can tell when you want some space rock- *- *

Call to me through the void - share a link to my mind
Better than being stuck sleepwalking in line
Sirens ring in the void - message loud and clear
If you want my help let me know - - - * - *
I can hear the sirens - * - *

Or we could wait for later -
Where's your sense of urgency? - * - *

Call to me through the void - share a link to my mind
Better than being stuck sleepwalking in line
Sirens ring in the void - message loud and clear
If you want my help let me know - - - * - *

Track Name: Space Rock Love Child
"Space Rock Love Child" by Jesse Crawford ©®™ 2011 Sodacon Music (Ascap Publishing) {title and lyrics "love child of rock, time, and space" inspired from a funny tweet by Timothy Ezekiel much props for that}

I've scanned the galaxy - scanned everywhere around
the quiet coming back so loud it's deafening-

it's a space rock love child -

It's been a long time waking up -
a lot of mileage to make up -
been on these flights so long - won't forget to stop -
look back how far we've gone -

(note on second verse - I'm leaving the lyrics here even though they are not in the song anymore, the section didn't fit unfortunately, however I really love the words and what they mean, so I'll leave them as part of the story)

neon binoculars on the moon - creatures
swim in glowing lagoon - constellations roaring overhead
like furnace burning up -

easy to worry - easy to fret -
lose your mind - over something
it won't effect - easy to worry - easy to fret -
lose your mind - lose your mind

Space Rock Love Child - it's the Sodacon
Space Rock Love Child
Space Rock Love Child - its the Sodacon
Space Rock Love Child

easy to worry - easy to fret -
lose your mind - over something
it won't effect -

Space Rock Love Child - it's the Sodacon
Space Rock Love Child
Space Rock Love Child - its the Sodacon
Space Rock Love Child

I've scanned the galaxy - * - * scanned everywhere around
the quiet coming back scanning over the top - * - *
