"Killed Or Cured

In the fall of 2003 I started writing songs. I had this grand idea of doing a record that was a potluck of musicians. I had hoped to put a different band together for each song. In February of 2004 with Ed Rose at the helm we started laying down drums tracks at The Black Lodge. Ryan Pope, John Anderson, Bill Belzer and Jake Cardwell lent their talents to this first batch of songs. James Dewees played piano on a song called "Dear Lover" that was of particular interest to him. I did scratch acoustic guitar and vocals and then left for The Get Up Kids "Guilt Show" world tour.


During that tour I started to get more and more down. I really wasn't happy touring and I felt like I couldn't tell anyone. The songs that I was writing during that period were especially bleak. The song "Drinking In The Afternoon" was written and recorded in my hotel room in Osaka, Japan on that tour. That was the day before I quit the band. It didn't go very well. That was a lonely place for me.

I fulfilled my touring obligations and turned towards the record that I had started. I felt that I needed some sort of catharsis. I spoke to Ed about shelving some of the songs and recording a record that was very stripped down. We reassessed some of the first batch of tunes and recorded some new ones. Chad Copeland (The Hero Factor) came up from Oklahoma and fleshed out the tunes with strings and keys. It was really dark. Ed and I then decided that it still wasn't done.

In September 2004 I started writing and rehearsing with Bill Belzer and Eric McCann. We weren't writing anything from scratch but rather arranging some of the songs I had written over the last year. When we started working together the environment was positive and laid back and the songs reflected it. We recorded a few more tracks with Ed at his house. Ed added drums to some of the songs that Chad and I had recorded and it felt like we had something of a record done.

Around this time, The Get Up Kids decided to do a farewell tour in June of the following year and Vagrant Records felt that a New Amsterdams record shouldn't come out until after The Get Up Kids tour was done. So that meant, fall of 2005. A whole year after the record was completed. A good business decision, but a lot can happen in a year.

We played some shows together as a three piece. We recruited Chad to come up and play keys for a show in December. We were so in love with the quartet sound that we asked Chad to play more shows. However, Chad has a full time band of his own and couldn't get away to play on the weekends. No hard feelings, but once we had four, we couldn't go back to three.

Dustin Kinsey joined the band in January of 2005 under the guise of playing a few shows. Once we had the set locked down we started writing new stuff together. The songs we started writing were so different than the "record" that I had completed. It made me start to question the record that was slated for release in the fall.

Finally, in July 2005 it was decided that we needed to see whatever record were writing through. The album that was called "Killed Or Cured" has been shelved. At least for now. Maybe it will be released one day but if nothing else it stands as a document of a very chaotic year of my life. Even if nobody gets to hear it.

This EP is free for you. It is five songs from what was "Killed Or Cured." Writing it helped me get through a lot, I hope you enjoy them."

Wears So Thin
Recorded at The Rose House by Ed Rose. Mixed by Roger Moutenot.
Performed by Bill Belzer, Eric McCann, Matthew Pryor and Chad Copeland
in the fall of 2004. Intro recorded by Michael Dubin at S.O.B.'s in
New York, NY during CMJ 2004.

White lines come anodyne
Like a calm summer sea
But all these creatures theyíve been watching me
Midnight by candlelight
Just my heart in a spoon
All my insides howl at the moon
The music begins. Violins.
The sad state weíre in wears so thin
Tattoo covers needle bruises
Like I wonít ever know
Long sleeve shirt sleeves like itís twenty below
Glass eyes donít recognize
Like you canít even see
You say these monsters theyíve been watching me
There is no sin my skin
The madness within wears so thin
Itís done me in

Watch The World Cave In
Recorded at The Rose House by Ed Rose in the fall of 2004. Mixed by
Roger Moutenot. Performed by Matthew Pryor.

The world's caving in, I got tickets for two
They're not the best seats and they're not the best view
Take my hand, you can squeeze on my arm
Wake from your slumber, baby, it's gonna start
It was worth the price of admission
The two of us watch the world cave in
The world's caving in like the prophecy calls
Barter redemption for diamonds and pearls
The rich got the camel through the eye of a needle
The deed in itself was inherently evil
When all's been said and written
The two of us watch the world cave in
The world's caving in, they're releasing the souls
Trapped in the earth where we can't hear their calls
Unbelievable torture, you wouldn't believe
This is their passion, their chance to be free
But they're beaten into submission
Free at last, watch the world cave in
When all's been said and written
The two of us watch the world cave in


Heaven Sent
Recorded at The Black Lodge in Eudora, KS by Ed Rose in the fall of
2004. Mixed by Roget Moutenot. Performed by Matthew Pryor and Chad
Copeland.

Taste the forbidden from the tree
All the questions begging me
Plagued with curiosity
These are all worth answering
It takes talent to have an original sin
Is it a tragedy if you are just a fool
All of this is heaven sent
Give me a chance to repent
Forgive me this decadence
Give me a chance to repent
Walk in the garden next to me
But there are all these walls around it
How could you take this place from me
I left all my lessons in it
Baby needs a new paradise
The sweetest of the songs that sheís singing
All of this is heaven sent
Give me a chance to repent
Forgive me this decadence
Give me a chance to repent

Drinking In The Afternoon
Recorded in Osaka, Japan by Matthew Pryor in April 2004. Mixed by
Roger Moutenot. Performed by Matthew Pryor. Percussion performed by
Ed Rose.

Drinking in the afternoon
This is what itís driven to
Is there anything else to do
I couldíve sworn itís three AM
Itís quiet in the room again
This is where the story ends
Time for me to act my age
Iíve got nothing if Iím not the rage
Like that would matter anyway
I just donít think you understand
I just donít think you understand
A story needs a scene to end
But itís hard to say goodbye
At least we got to have this time
Drinking in the afternoon
The loneliest hotel room
I hope the answer comes to you
This is not the way for me
This is not my last defeat
Try to make the ends meet
But itís hard to say goodbye
At least we got to have this time

Strangled By The Thought
Recorded at The Black Lodge in Eudora, KS and The Rose House by Ed
Rose in the fall of 2004. Mixed by Roger Moutenot. Performed by
Matthew Pryor, Eric McCann, Chad Copeland and Ed Rose.

Weak for lack of oxygen
Strangled by the thought
Promise youíll remember when Iím gone
Sleep is mostly optional
Trace lines around my heart
Steal the only breath from my lungs
But if I had your faith
Iíd be fearless
But until that day
Iím envious
Miles and miles that distance us
Like meters on a map
Trace lines that only translate to a day
But if youíre awake
Tell me itís safe
If you ask me to stay
Then Iíll stayDonít leave me here when Iím bleeding
When Iím fading but Iím true
Itís tempting to stop everything
When Iím pouring out to you
So take everything, take it all from me
Because all I want is you
