Jack Price A catchy, hook filled EP that delivers Pop Punk with an Alt Rock tinge. Full of passion with a suitably DIY feel, What Keeps Me Up At Night whilst not being totally original delivers where it counts. Producing some thoroughly enjoyable Pop Punk with heaps of charm. Favorite track: Photographs And Souvenirs.

False Hope 03:10
Keep pointing fingers at everybody else I can't believe the shit that comes out of your mouth Desperately clinging and reading way too deep Into that "divine" book that contradicts itself We all want answers to the questions that keep us up at night But I won't waste my time living out my life getting ready to die What they say can't be true Don't let them smother you For years and years I let you cram it down my throat Never answering the simple how or whys Seeking forgiveness in imaginary ghosts You never question, you throw logic aside We all want answers to the questions that keep us up at night But I won't waste my time living out my life getting ready to die What they say can't be true Don't let them smother you I won't be fed lies For false hope when I die

Get A Life 02:58
I'm dead, in over my head, tired and frustrated I've been sitting here for hours on end Waiting for a spark to ignite my pen And give me the right words to drive into your head Carefully constructed to bring you down You think you've got it all figured out Well I'd hate to be where you are now Take a look around and enjoy the long ride down I'd like to hear you criticize me now So open up your mouth and let the bullshit out You finally gave me something to laugh about You wish that you could start over again Well that's too bad, you had your chance Now you're just pathetic I'd like to say I'm sorry for this misery you're feeling But I'd be lying And I'll smile and I'll wave, tell you you'll be ok As the world around you chews you up and spirals down the drain

Infinite 01:47
I've got tunnel vision and Pittsburgh's shining bright tonight City wind whips through my hair Summer's over and it's time for a brand new year As autumn greets me with a pair of beautiful eyes I spent the last few months just thinking about Michael And it's time to turn things around And then she came along and hit me like a brick wall And I've never felt the way that I do now I am here and I am looking at her So turn up the music and drive faster We can't choose where we come from But we can choose where we go Dear my anonymous listener This is my last letter And I want you to know you were there When I needed you most

Logan 02:41
My heart is aching and I can't sleep at night What I would give to hear your voice one more time So young and innocent, but stolen away Sick to my stomach as these days fade I fall down onto my knees and beat the earth until my knuckles bleed And i can't breath And it feels like I've been hit by a train and this pain is destroying me An angel got a brand new pair of wings I've never felt so god damn helpless and low I've bottled it all up and now I'm gonna explode I can barely walk into your house and resist the urge to cry But for your moms sake, I bite down on my lip and I try I can't believe this, give me a reason why And it makes me sick knowing I never got to say goodbye And i don't know what to do with all this anger that I'm feeling On the inside So i scream "fuck you" to god, and wipe tears from my eyes
5.
Numb 02:47
Can you tell me how you do it? Day in and day out There's a numbness in your face Because your candle's burning out And your reflection in the mirror Looks back with sunken eyes And your heart has grown so heavy From breaking all the time And I just can't recall The old you, the real you A list of broken promises for you Your hands shake As your heart breaks Your eyes burn Is it over?
6.
Please know that I still love you And I know you're not to blame And these things tend to happen Living in this day and age And I know now we're not lucky And it kills me to admit That we're not the picture perfect family we were When I was still a kid I thought we'd always be together I thought not me, not us, not ever But I guess that I was wrong This van is my only escape From accepting that my life has changed And my whole world is falling down around me How long will it be Until I've got nothing left but memories? And I've been staying awake for most of the night I just can't seem to shut my eyes And I've been screaming on the inside As I sit back and watch this thing die This van is my only escape From accepting that my life has changed And my whole world is falling down around me How long will it be Until I've got nothing left but memories?
7.
I'm drifting nowhere I'm just a grain of sand on a beach There's a billion other people like me Whose dreams just feel so far out of reach They're out of reach I'm floating nowhere I'm a fucking grain of salt in the sea Do you know how many people are like me? Realizing our existence is meek Yeah, our existence is meek And it haunts me at night when I stare at the sky It's nights spent gazing at stars when I feel how small we really are We live out meaningless lives before we fade one at a time So tell me What difference is my life gonna make? Is there purpose in each breath that I take? Is there reason for each morning I wake? For each morning I wake
