I made this album by myself in my basement, 90% of which was done after the hour of 10pm.

jared Denver

About Jared
He owns a guitar, that gives all other guitars a bad name
He can make music, that sounds as if you're not even listening to music
His first album, went double wood
When you listen to his music, you can really feel like you need to brush your teeth
His dance moves, are glorious!
He is the most unsuccesful musician in the world
"I don't always make music, but when I do, I prefer to mute"

Track Name: Perfect Simplicity
Looking at you, I see the face
Purity and grace
And I really don't think that I could ever replace you in my heart
Really think that I won't have a chance to make it from the start
You're the light of me
Perfect simplicity
Burning so brightly, deep down inside of me

Finally now, I have my place
In this world, in any case
And you really think that I am the one who should be there in your heart
Really think that you need me to help you make it from the start
You're the light of me
Perfect simplicity
Burning so brightly
Always inside of me
Track Name: Abandonment
Listening can become so frightening
When I close my eyes I see
Everything that I wish I'd be

I care, though it gets me nowhere
Something I wish I'd share
Feelings of grief and despair

Pull me through this
Abandonment
Keep me tightly in your arms tonight

Head down
Please don't look at my frown
Makes me feel like some clown
Reaching out so I will not drown

Pull me through this
Abandonment
Keep me tightly in your arms tonight
Track Name: The Fall
Take a small step into the dark, it's not easy, don't look back now

Feel your pulse rising as you lose sight
Feel the rhythm accelerating

You don't know where you're going
Blindly reaching out as you stumble and
Fall - don't fall down don't go down don't fall down

Groping helplessly trying to turn back
Shouldn't you have made it back now?

Hoping you might hear something familiar
But it's quiet all around you

Sitting patiently waiting
Hoping someone will find you if you don't

Be careful now, watch your step, don't get too close, or else you might

Fall - don't fall down don't go down don't fall down
Track Name: I Don't Love You
You pay me money but that doesn't mean you own me
I spend all my time with you but that doesn't mean you know me

Death by powerpoint, going to meetings; talking about work, never actually doing any; destroying my soul making one more spreadsheet; mandatory training crushing all of my dreams

You see me more than my family, but I don't love you
I lose sleep at night thinking 'bout you, but I don't love you

Each year you tell me my performance must improve
And in return my benefits get reduced

Donating my time, just to make you look good; feels just like a crime you don't treat me like you should; if I had a chance I would get out of here, no I'm just kidding I'm stuck here another year

You take the best years of my life, but I don't love you
You boss me more than my wife, but I don't love you
Track Name: I Don't Know Why
If you say to me, you want to be my friend
I am telling you, I am loving you 'til the end
No one ever wants to know me, no one ever takes the time
No one ever cares to know, I don't know why

You will say to me I need to try again
I am telling you I have tried until the end
Why is it always me, that has to break the ice
No one is listening, I don't know why

Misery loves company but even he doesn't want to hang out with me

And so I go home leaving this place alone
No one notices as I slip out the door
It's easier when there's nobody to say a goodbye
It's as if I was never there, I don't know why

Misery loves company, but even he doesn't want to hang out with me.
Track Name: The Simple Explanation
I post videos but you do not watch them
No one ever replies to any of my tweets
Nobody ever clicks 'like' on my status updates
There is a very simple explanation, you see

I suck

It's not me, it's an enhanced version of me
Only those things I wanted you to see
It's not me, it's an enhanced version of me
Only those things I wanted you to see

I suck

I don't know you, I don't like you
Track Name: Block Out The Sun
You keep looking through your eyes, feel the burning brightness bearing down, dark approaches you can't make it out, shield your eyes, your face, it's just too bright

You don't see me, you don't see me, you don't see me, you don't see me

I block out the sun

You don't see me clearly you don't see me clearly you don't see me clearly you don't see me clearly you don't

I block out the sun
Track Name: What The?!
What the...is wrong with me?
What the...is wrong with you?
What the...is wrong with us?
What the...what the...?

I can see you, but I don't think that you can see me.

What the...am I doing?
What the...went wrong?
What the...should I do now?
What the...what the...?

I slapped together a couple of chords, and a couple of sounds

What the...is this song?
What the...is that noise?
What the...does that mean?
What the...what the...?
Track Name: Here Right Now
Time goes past so fast as you wait for something to happen you've missed the life that's here right now.

I can't wait for...never comes, never comes
It'll be great when...never comes, never comes

Our lives past away like it was a dream where I kept waking and I forget all that's here right now.
Track Name: Back Where I Started
Tears fill my eyes as I think of all the times
that you and I spent together in our lives
please give me one more moment with you
when I go keep me in your heart with you

I forget why I left to begin with
trying to return to where I started

Back where I started, I am going back where I started
I've been down this road before, it's the road that leads me back where I started
Track Name: The Voice Inside Your Head
Barefoot walking down the street
Listen to the song I sing

Kicking rocks with your toes
You’re the last one who knows

Feeling that is rising
Up inside your brain you need to feel it in-
side your heart

I don’t want to walk away
Leaving you alone today

Hey…hear what I say
And I say hey…listen to what I say

You should know me
You should know me

Situation that you find yourself in
Might require strength from within

You can find a way to pull yourself through
If you listen to the voice inside your
Head

Hey…hear what I say
And I say hey…listen to what I say

You should know me
You should know me
