about

We have broken up as a band so I am releasing some unfinished stuff that I recorded for this project.
The first song is a song called "Part of It," it was originally intended to be included on our second album, "The Devil Doesn't Come Out In the Daylight," however I decided to cut it because I wanted this record to tell more of a "story." A dumb story, just a story of my mental downfall as caused by "insomnia and unrequited love," but more importantly the story of my journey to try and be less of a pussy and confess my love to a girl, my thoughts during that process and the result up to a certain point in time (this story has gotten much juicier between the times that I wrote these songs and now. Much, much juicier).

The rest of the songs are acoustic renditions of songs that were from our first record, "Peking Plaza." I have recorded a whole album of acoustic songs that I was going to release under "The Jesses" as "Acoustica," (which would also include brand new acoustic material) but I will likely touch up the rest of the songs and release them in the future under another name.

Needless to say, I did not really bother to mix/master these tracks. Naturally I mix a little bit as I go of course, however I never really sat down to mix any of these.

Track Name: Part of It
Do you know what you wanna do?
Well take your time, but your time is running out
Do you know what you're gonna do?
Well hurry up 'cause the clock is ticking down

Do you know where you wanna go?
You can go here or there, but not over there
Do you know what you love to do? (I actually sang this wrong in the demo, the lyrics I wrote rhymed, it was supposed to be "do you know what you wanna be?" hahahaha)
Pick from A, B, C, D, E, F or G

She said, "hey, get in the boat"
I asked "well, where we gonna go?"
She said "hey man, there's no time to explain just do what I say"
I say "WELL, IF I DON'T KNOW, WHERE WE'RE GONNA GO THEN I DON'T WANNA GO"
She said "WELL THAT'S TOO FUCKING BAD, TOO FUCKING BAD JUST GET IN THE BOAT"

"All I want is a great big part of it,
All I want is a great big part of it
All I want is what you want for me
Well all I want is a great big part of it,
All I want is a great big part of it
All I want is what you want for me"

"Do you know what you wanna do?"
"Yes ma'am, I swear I'll follow through"
"So you know what you're gonna do?"
"Yes ma'am, I'm ready to follow through"

She said, "Hey, get in the boat!"
I said "FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK NO"
She asked "Well, then where you gonna go?"
I said, "Quite frankly, I don't know, but I won't sail the sea of mediocrity, no I won't sail the sea of conformity, I said I won't sail the sea, I won't sail the sea for comfort and bliss and stability
No I won't sail the sea, I won't sail the sea for comfort and bliss and stability"

"All I want is a great big part of it,
All I want is a great big part of it
All I want is what you want for me"
They say, "all I want is a great big part of it,
All I want is a great big part of it
All I want is what you want for me"

But as for me, I, I don't want any single part of it
I don't want any single part of it
I don't want what you want for me
Well I don't want any single part of it,
I don't want any single part of it
I don't want what you want for me

I don't want any single part of it
I don't want any single part of it
I don't want what you want for me
Well I don't want any single part of it,
I don't want any single part of it
I don't want the things you want for me
Track Name: r/Jesse (Acoustic Version)
I watch you while you're sitting all alone after school
But when I try to talk to you I stammer like a fool
I like it when we lie and I can stare into your eyes
Even though I know you're thinking of other guys

Whoaaaaa

When I think of you the sun shines right through
But somehow the rain begins to pour too
It's nice to feel penetrated by your rays
But it always seems to end in a rainy day

I always thought of you as the girl of my dreams
But who the fuck would wanna date a guy like me?
I guess I have bad luck with girls, what can I say?
Maybe I'd be better off if I were gay

You're fast asleep while I'm stressing out, trying to get everything figured out
You're fast asleep while I'm stressing out, trying to get my life figured out
You're fast asleep while I'm stressing out, trying to get my life figured out
You're fast asleep while I'm stressing out, trying to get my life figured out
You're fast asleep
You're fast asleep
You're fast asleep
You're fast asleep
Track Name: Master of My Domain (Acoustic Version)
They say to me that I could be anything I want to be when I grow up
They say, "you could be a pirate," but I say
"But I don't want to be a pirate"
And they say, "you could be a cowboy," but I say
"But I don't wanna be a cowboy"
And they say, "you could be Switzerland, why not be Switzerland?"
And I say, "The only problem is, well I don't wanna be Switzerland."

I wanna play music and watch tv all day
I wanna tour from place to place
They say, "man, that's fucking crazy"
and I say, "it may be crazy but it's what I want to do."

I don't want my whole life to depend on some tests
I don't want to sit around at a desk
I wanna do what I love to do best and I swear to god I'll do whatever I can to make it happen
Track Name: Soaring (Acoustic Version)
When I'm with you we are soaring from everything
We are flying inches from the sun
We're secluded from everyone and I know
Everything's gonna be okay

Now we're falling from the clouds
And there's nothing that can stop us now
You're losing all your breath
And I'm holding on to our death, and I know
Nothing will be okay
And I know nothing will be okay
Track Name: Open Door (Acoustic Version)
On and on and on and on and on and on it goes
On and on and on and on and on and on it goes
The never ending cycle of me being too afraid
Resulting in me never ever ever getting a date

I don't, I don't, I don't, I don't
I don't know what to do
I don't, I don't, I don't, I don't
I don't know what to do

Because on and on and on and on and on and on it goes
On and on and on and on and on and on it goes
The never ending cycle of me being too afraid
Resulting in me never ever ever getting a date

I don't, I don't, I don't, I don't
I don't know what to do
I don't, I don't, I don't, I don't
I don't know what to do

Because on and on and on and on and on and on it goes
On and on and on and on and on and on it goes
On and on and on and on and on and on it goes
On and on and on and on and on and on it goes

She probably doesn't even know I exist, and if she does, she probably thinks that I'm a piece of shit
I'm having trouble doping with it so I'll just try to pretend that I don't give a shit

I don't, I don't, I don't, I don't
I don't, I don't, I don't, I don't
I don't, I don't, I don't, I don't know

Because on and on and on and on and on and on it goes
On and on and on and on and on and on it goes
On and on and on and on and on and on it goes
On and on and on and on and on and on it goes
