about

A "b-side" is usually a song that was recorded at the same time as all the songs on an album but didn't make the cut. In this case, all the songs on this EP are songs that either didn't quite fit stylistically, or were too tongue-in-cheek, or really weren't quite as good as the rest of the songs.

Anyway, here they are, in all their b-side-ness: these are the songs that didn't make it onto "Emotional Calculations". I'm releasing them BEFORE the actual album to get you all hyped up about it (but also because the actual album isn't quite ready yet :P)

about

KingTiger Phoenix, Arizona

A producer of electronic music. Often sounds like video game music, and sometimes like rock music, if it were completely synthetic. Sometimes stupidly pop-py.

Track Name: Flatland
sometimes I feel that I'm burning up
and when I'm close, I set people on fire
but am I divinely impassioned?
or did I set myself on fire out of spite?

I often feel like I don't fit in
that what I hear and what I believe are different
so am I just a grand idealist?
or are the things I believe just ridiculous?

stop trying to put me out, trying to fit me in your boxes
just let me be how I was made to be
I know that I don't seem to have right angles
but maybe I'm made to be a circle

...and a circular peg won't fit in a square hole...

did you ever consider
the things that make me different
you consider them my weaknesses
but perhaps they really are my strengths?

people pleaser! approval seeker!
don't you ever think that when I am
too abstract! too impassioned!
that I'm just being myself?

you're trying to shut me down, so you can check off all your boxes
you just don't seem to see
that you can't make me have right angles
cause maybe I prefer to be a circle

...a circle is just a line with 500 angles...

there is One Who loves me
just the way I am
and this One gets me
and completely understands

He won't try to put me out, and He doesn't even like boxes
He likes me for me
and He doesn't seem to like right angles
He's more into the curves
the sweeps and the swerves
of a circle

Track Name: (I Really Don't Know)
I really don't know how I could live without you
I really just can't see
sometimes I just plumb forget
to stop and breathe

I love you
and that is all I know
that’s what I’m trying my best to show

I just want
to hold you in my arms
I don't care
if it's been said a thousand times before

to sit next to you
to grow old with you
I really don't know how I could live without you
