about

"Fast Attack. Slow Release." is about a time in my life where I was stubborn, naive, and stupid. A year of my life was wasted to a person who continually took advantage of me. I have never felt more ups and downs than I did during that year, but I also never have learned more about myself, relationships, and people. People are capable of terrible things. People will lie, cheat, and steal while at the same time telling you that they "love" you. I was too stubborn to listen to my friends and family, I was too naive to realize that I was losing myself, and I was too stupid to believe my own eyes and ears. The only person who could save me was me.

"Fast Attack. Slow Release." tells a story and is meant to be listened to from beginning to end. Please download this EP for FREE and share it with as many people as you'd like. It is our gift to all of you for being so supportive to Mr Fyner and the Tech Ed Room as a band, and me as an individual.

Thank you.

-Buck

Track Name: Hey, Everything Is Great (Quiet Places)
Everything will change in time I swear, I've seen it
This shit can drive ya fucking mad
When living like I did you learn nothing is sacred
My only hope was finding quiet places

I'm so alone
I've been like this for so long
and I spent my spring worrying
I learned that sex doesn't solve anything

Everything will change in time I swear, I've seen it
Believe me it drove me fucking mad
When living like I did you learn nothing is sacred
My only hope was finding quiet places
Mine's a porch on Avon St. where I
Sit and talk with the neighbors every Thursday

Now I'm not alone
Haven't felt this in so long
and I spent my spring worrying
I learned that sex doesn't solve anything

I've been waiting for summer, listen to Limbeck and read novels in peace every night
Thinking of writing one myself one day, might be too ambitious
Nothing feels more like freedom than seeing the pavement roll beneath my feet
We haven't spoke in so long so I write to say "Hey, everything is great"
Everything is great
Everything is great
Everything is great
Hey, everything is great
Track Name: Cool It Now
I know I can be too upfront
Impossible standards make life difficult
But while some would seek change I think I'll just stay the same
Do you know what ya are?
Cause I know what I am: Insecure but sincere
And still edge after all these years

What I say is what I mean
There's nothing more attractive than honesty
Come on girl, make me believe

Oh, I've been dying to know are you ready to go?
Just please let me know.
Even after months of being out on the road (on the road)
Still when my eyes are closed I'm haunted by your ghost

On my right I got a dog and on my left an elephant
To remind me (to remind me), to forgive.
To forgive but to never forget
Now I hear my old self begging "Please, just let me in"
But I owe it to myself to rethink, everything again

What I say is what I mean
There's nothing more attractive than honesty
That's why my friends keep telling me to

Cool it now
Buck, you better slow it down
Watch out!
I'm fucking losing control

Oh, I've been dying to know are you ready to go?
Just please let me know.
Even after months of being out on the road
Still when my eyes are closed I'm haunted by your ghost
Track Name: Common Courtesy
I lie awake at night. You're fast asleep.
Dreaming of the words to say
We wake up the next day, still the same
Are we proof that people don't change?
It feels like we are

She says "We're toxic in love"
Feels like I've been waiting for this moment to come.
Now Buck don't be naive if she wants let her leave
For better nights for better sleep
For common courtesy

Now we both have these thoughts in our heads
But we don't speak we write them down instead
So I wrote a page
She wrote a postcard
Adressed from a place that I never want to be at again
Again

She says "We're toxic in love"
Feels like I've been waiting for this moment to come.
Now Buck don't be naive if she wants let her leave
For better nights for better sleep
For common courtesy

Still waiting to hear
You say you're fucking sorry
For the late nights
The bad fights
Feels like I can't do anything right
And I'm sorry, just say you're sorry

She says "We're toxic in love"
Feels like I've been waiting for this moment to come.
Now Buck don't be naive if she wants let her leave
For better nights for better sleep
For common courtesy
For common courtesy
Track Name: A Month and a Half & The Format
It took a month and a half & The Format
To "misplace" all our photographs
But I've been doing better since

Tune out the mistakes that you made
Yes, I was betrayed
So I built up a wall around me made of fictional brick
And I'd think so much that I'd make myself so sick
At the thought of you

You could watch my heart
Run in circles around yours
Every time you'd wish me dead and gone
I'd be right back on your porch

I touched your face then put my mouth on your lips
My heart weighed me down just like that anchor on your hips and you said
"Baby, I made so many mistakes. You stood by my side holding off tidal waves and I'll prove that I'll love you (I love you) balloons or no balloons"

You could watch my heart
Run in circles around yours
Every time you'd wish me dead and gone
I'd be right back on your porch

We laid on your bed and I took my finger and turned it into a pen
I wrote on the small of your back: When will I learn my lesson? and why can't I just get over you?

You could watch my heart
Run in circles around yours
Every time you'd wish me dead and gone
I'd be right back on your porch

You could watch my heart
Run in circles around yours
Every time you'd wish me dead and gone
I'd be right back on your porch

This took a month and a half & The Format.
Track Name: Too Proud To Be Decent
So I sit in the backseat
Legs crossed, eyes closed, head back

So I sit in the backseat
Legs crossed, eyes closed, head back
One finger at a time, sneak your hand undermine
These fingers grip our palms touch
Kiss my shoulder, move past my collar
From my neck to my cheek, to where our lips finally meet
We could stay here forever
Should I stay here forever?

What's that game that we play?
"Don't talk to me for several days"?
You set fire to all that you touch
I never wanted to care this much, this much
And I think: "Get through this summer and we'll be alright cause I don't want you to change. I just want you to try"
Should I stay here forever?

Sat down to Defend with Valente
We got talking 'bout life kid gave me great advice
"You can't hold on too tight, you can't mold 'em, ya just can't man. Ya fuckin' can't man, ya can't man."

What's that game that we play?
Don't talk to me for several days?
You set fire to all that you touch
I never wanted to care this much, this much
And I think: "Get through this summer and we'll be alright cause I don't want you to change. I just want you to try"
Should I stay here forever?

Paul says "Don't mention control.", but I have none.
Cory tells me to "wash my hands", but I'm not done.
No I'm not done.

So I sit in the backseat
Legs crossed, eyes closed, head back
