about

Jigsaw Road is our Debut Release influenced by generations of sound. It blends Alternative Rock, with elements of Reggae, Punk, and Pop centered on the idea of emphasizing lyrics through melody. The lyrical themes of the album are centered around the idea that what we believe about ourselves make us what we're capable of.

The EP was released online on October 30, 2015 while the CDs were released on November 14, 2015 to an audience at the Live Room in Sumner. We are happy to say that the release was a success and we owe it all to the fans who have supported us!

Track Name: Jigsaw Road
Jigsaw Road

You’ve been alive for a very short time, and in twenty years you’ve lost your faith, your age, your way and you’ve even lost your mind
But what have you gained?
And why is it when you look around; you’re really looking down to hide the truth from ever being found
Yeah, nothing’s the same

We question life and we think that we’ll find all the answers
The solution is in living with mystery

‘Cause life’s a jigsaw road
A puzzle no one knows
In time you’ll see where the pieces all go
So keep your head up high,
Don’t be afraid to try,
Just make it worth your time

You’re thinking sideways all the way to a different view where it’s something new to know you choose to win and lose
And it’s always been true
Don’t find no need for the nonsense in-between; no more killing self-esteem; a dream to see beyond what you see
Another new you

So why believe in anything if it’s not your truth?

Life’s a jigsaw road
A puzzle no one knows
In time you’ll see where the pieces all go
So keep your head up high,
Don’t be afraid to try,
Just make it worth your time

Life’s a jigsaw road
A puzzle no one knows
In time you’ll see where the pieces all go
So keep your head up high,
Don’t be afraid to try,
Just make it worth your time
Track Name: Imposter
Imposter

The person you know,
Who carries their own,
Casts a shadow but they don't know it's theirs.
And you might even say;
How can they live this way?
You'd let them wither but you know that you still care.

Fake a little more and walk a little further up the stairs,
Work a little harder just to feel like you've done your share
From your own eyes can you actually see your worth?
Or do you only hear the worst?
Self-proclaimed Imposter

When did you start to think,
That you were just a failure,
You wonder then you sink;
A little closer to the brink.

Fake a little more and walk a little further up the stairs,
Work a little harder just to feel like you've done your share
From your own eyes can you actually see your worth?
Or do you only hear the worst?
Self-proclaimed Imposter

When you look at your face,
Can you see that you've lost your hiding place?
No more burying it deep, all this hate that we keep
For ourselves is a waste, but it's easy to think
We're defined by our faults, and we can't change it all
So you've gotta get away, gotta find a getaway
Gotta get away, gotta find a getaway

Fake a little more and walk a little further up the stairs,
Work a little harder just to feel like you've done your share
From your own eyes can you actually see your worth?
Or do you only hear the worst?
Self-proclaimed Imposter

Gotta get away, gotta find a getaway
Gotta get away, gotta find a getaway
Gotta get away, gotta find a getaway
Gotta get away, gotta find a getaway
Gotta get away, gotta find a getaway
Gotta get away, gotta find a getaway
Gotta get away, gotta get away
Get away
Track Name: Pieces
Pieces

No use in trying
I just want to give up
No use in lying
I just wanna feel loved
Could the energy that flows through you flow right through me too?
‘Cause I want to feel everything exactly as you do

Take all that I know
And pour it down the drain
Because I’m falling to pieces
But when I’m rebuilt I won’t be the same

I’ve got it all backwards
Always looking for
Any possible failure
And how to keep it offshore
All this energy put into pushing every day
Is like looking for invisible colors through the gray

Take all that I know
And pour it down the drain
Because I’m falling to pieces
But when I’m rebuilt I won’t be the same

Pushing too much I’m runnin’ on fumes
So please just pull me? Now I think I’ve thought it all through
I look around all the time
While this fear is in my mind;
A constant commentary shooting me down
But if I think of success,
And I keep it in my head.
Maybe then I will silence this sound!

No use in trying
I just want to give up
No use in lying
I just wanna feel loved
Could the energy that flows through you flow right through me too?
‘Cause I want to feel everything exactly as you do

Take all that I know
And pour it down the drain
Because I’m falling to pieces
But when I’m rebuilt I won’t be the same
Track Name: Dreams
Dreams

When I’m lost in thought I don’t know what I hope to find,
But tonight I spend thinking of myself all grey afraid to die,
And that old man; he rues each choice he ever made,
Because now he’s found himself alone
His passion
His grave

He was staring so far into the horizon,
That he forgot about the ones by his side.

Dreams are falling off the edge of the earth,
Slowly diminishing in worth ‘til they all fade;
My friends; I don’t ever want to see this end;
What’s ambition worth if it could drive you all away?

Some spend most their lives never doubting what they do,
Until the day they see what they have missed; and then it’s all that crowds their view.
To do what we love and to be loved,
Ain’t that what everyone wants to attain?
But rarely does anyone have it all,
So if I’m giving it up then it’s all okay

I’ll be taking my time
No need to hurry
I won’t forget about the ones by my side

Dreams are falling off the edge of the earth,
Slowly diminishing in worth ‘til they all fade;
My friends; I don’t ever want to see this end;
What’s ambition worth if it could drive you all away?

Dreams are falling off the edge of the earth,
Slowly diminishing in worth ‘til they all fade;
My friends; I don’t ever want to see this end;
What’s ambition worth if it could drive you all away?
Track Name: Good Enough
Good Enough

Cover all your tracks, try to please them all
The peace never lasts, play this way and you’re fated to fall
Fated to fall
Fated to fall

Well maybe you’re wrong, don’t gotta be it all
Or take away the worst in you ‘cause then you hide the truth
All that you are is all you need to be
So throw all of your doubt away and never change a thing

We both want to feel good enough for this,
All the things we do to calm down that voice in our heads,
Inside our heads
It’s all in our heads

Maybe we’re wrong, don’t gotta be it all
Or take away the worst in us ‘cause then we hide the truth
All that we are is all we need to be
Let’s throw all of this doubt away and never change a thing

If I show you my worst
And you show me yours
I only hope it’s good enough
If I give you my love
And you give me yours
I only hope it’s good enough

Maybe we’re wrong, don’t gotta be it all
Or take away the worst in us ‘cause then we hide the truth
All that we are is all we need to be
Let’s throw all of this doubt away and never change a thing

If I show you my worst
And you show me yours
I only hope it’s good enough
If I give you my love
And you give me yours
I only hope it’s good enough
Track Name: Finding Home
Finding Home

Swimming in a great big ocean,
Searching for a place to call home,
Day keeps changing into night and still my island’s out of sight;
Hiding from the way things are while running out of time

Living with memories of you,
When waves were crashing all around it’s you I held onto,
Slowly going underwater scared of dragging you down too,
Still I keep on going further terrified to face the truth

Time would pass much faster with you around
Things could be much better
But you’re out of my view now
Drifting further
Into the ocean,
There you go
But I can’t swim alone

Weighed down by things I cannot find,
Searching for the answers in the folds of my mind
I want an explanation; where’d you go?
Trapped inside my head now and I can’t find the way out
Stuck with things I’ll never know

Time is passing slower now that you’ve gone,
Things could be so much better
But you’re out of my view now,
Drifting further,
Into the ocean,
There you go
But I can’t swim alone

Seeing your picture still hurts,
I’ve been sinking so long I’ve forgotten what it’s worth,
I’m afraid to live without you; carry on all by myself
But this is the world I live in now
I have to let you go

I swim alone – And what I know,
You’re far away – But I’m home,
And the times –That we once shared;
All in the past – No longer there,
It could all be a dream, because I’m right here
And I think that I’ll stay; my mind is clear
