A LOT was released June 12, 2018
A LOT was recorded/mixed/mastered by Dan Seiders @ Chillhouse, Charlestown, MA. Special thanks to Tyler Seiders on the production as well.
The album art was made in MS Paint, mostly by John, but somewhat collaboratively with Joey and Trent. I seem to recall an epic session at John’s Chestnut St. apartment finalizing the colors and text on the cover.
If you didn’t know, John has mad MS Paint skills:
A LOT Lyrics
don’t let it get you down. i’ll always be the one to stick around and try to lift you up when things don’t work out right. because i’m by your side and we never fight. (don’t just leave me all alone) i know you feel alone. be alone with me. it’s not as bad as looking back. don’t let it get you down. i’ll always be around. don’t let it get you down. gracie, if you say maybe, i’ll say maybe (not) to you. don’t just leave me all alone.
i don’t even recall what time it was that happened. no, i was heading out soon anyways. you called me i was still sitting in my car. i know i can’t answer that right now. don’t leave it when she calls. (don’t) leave it when she calls. don’t leave it. if i never lied about it we’d be fine. if i told you once i’ve told you twice. i’m not around for the summer.don’t leave it when she calls. (don’t) leave it when she calls. don’t leave it. don’t leave it. don’t leave it. i’m not a closer. i shouldn’t have fallen away. you gave me the shot. i’m not a closer. i shouldn’t have fallen away. you turned me around because i’d been telling you i’m not around for the summer.
molly’s at the bar, drinking for free. i got my hands in my pockets fishing for my keys trying to leave. i think i’ve seen this before. i’ll be up until 4am not listening to my head convince me how to live without molly. molly set the bar talking to me. (how can i be temporary?) counting love by three. (she must be too) i think i know what to do. i’ll be up until 4am not listening to my head convince me not to live without molly. (how can i not be temporary?) molly, how can i not be temporary?
if i could tell you all the things about you that i wish i could change…well…you probably don’t want to hear it anyway. so let’s just look the other way and we can talk about the past and all the things that won’t last. like the way we used to be when it was only you and me. and if i could take you away from all my memories, and put you in a place where no one sees, i’d do back the things you did to me. when we would talk about the past, and all things that never last, like the things you said new years eve, when it was only you and me – all those words i could not believe…was it you or was it me?
