about

I should tell you stuff about this album.

This was a decision i made a week before the Del Mar Fair show i had on June 20th, 2014. It was actually the same decision I made last year, but with shorter time. I wanted to Go Big this time. I decided to try record my full band, all myself, mix it all, and burn 300 CD's before the fair.

I know that recording artists have done this in even shorter time, and maybe even done a better job. But that's what i worked with for this album.

So to disclose, not everything is perfect. Not everything is exactly how i wanted it to turn out. My voice started straining, and even my band said "hey, take it easy." I did this for me but i really wanted to get something out, thats new.

If you look, there are individual track art for each song. All pieces fit to the Title Album Art. These songs absolutely compile times in my life that has come to now. "Framework" is a great word to represent what my music is based from. Frames come in many different sizes and condition.

I hope you can enjoy this non-mastered self-produced demo with the huge help of MY BAND (listed in credits. please look them up).

Download it. Listen to. Share it. SHARE IT!

The more people share it the better. We will eventually go into a studio to produce something of greatness.

See us live. It's way fun.
MASONJAMES.ME for all info.

A bunch of thanks to you.

-Mason

Track Name: Pages
Verse 1 |
Read me like an open book, tell me what you see
Flipping through the pages back and forth for hours
and still you have no clue


Chorus |
You don’t know (3x)
who i am


Verse 2 |
no diamonds in the rough, no chapters to sort it through
you think you have found but you still don’t know me
I’m winding down you winding up the dolls that will not move
to make a point to show me how, you do what you choose

Chorus |
You don’t know (3x)
who i am
Track Name: Hold
ntro:
Ooh Ooh Ahhhh Ahhhh

Verse:
My story doesn’t stop, The light that we held for so long
Why is it ceasing
Memories of good, Talking through the late night
Forgot about breathing

PreChorus:
Oooh Ooh oh oh, Ooh ooh oh oh
My desire is still longing

Chorus:
You’re the one i want to hold
Please be the one I want to hold

Verse 2:
Its just a question, Take my words for granted
I hate the all tension
You cover up you’re sadness, I’ve expressed it all towards you
Did I forget to mention

PreChorus:
Oooh Ooh oh oh, Ooh ooh oh oh
I'm recklessly taking my chances

Chorus:
You’re the one i want to hold
Please be the one I want to hold

Outro:
Oooh Ooh oh oh, Ooh ooh oh oh
Oooh Ooh oh oh, Ooh ooh oh oh
Oooh Ooh oh oh, Ooh ooh oh oh
Ooh Ooh Ahhhh Ahhhh
Ooh Ooh Ahhhh Ahhhh
Track Name: Common Sense (Acoustic)
Verse 1:
I pulled off the string
I cut down the rope
I couldn’t tell why
All the truth was unknown

The Lack of a Cause
A time for reason
What I didn’t know
I should have listened to what’s been told


Chorus:
Common Sense is breaking us down
We only know what
We only see
Common Sense is breaking us down
We only know what
We only see


Verse 2:
My fingers were crossed
He said I was fine
But I fell to the ground
No more time for excuses

I tried again
This time was good
I conquered my fear
But shortly realized my lively-hood
that


Chorus
Common Sense is breaking us down
We only know what
We only see
Common Sense is breaking us down
We only know what
We only see


Bridge:
I thought I was
To good for you
But time, made the world stand still
I thought I was
To good for you
But time, made the world stand still

Chorus
Common Sense is breaking us down
We only know what
We only see
Common Sense is breaking us down
We only know what
We only see
Track Name: Alleyway
Verse.
I told myself that I would Leave
That this home is not a home for me This exit sign is where i stay
can you lead me through this alley way

Chorus.
If you’d care to take this hand, my darling you’ll understand. This cold wind won’t tear us yet. We still got this time to spend. So trust me with eyes so blind, and someday you will find,
Just take some time for me, just you and I

Verse 2.
We can make this easy, we can make this good. Let’s go down this road, we should, we should. Cause I believe in us so well.
Our resting place, this time will tell.

Pre-Chorus
Because all this time that we’ve been spending on, Running through this alleyway,
We’ve torn down walls, we’ve thinned out fogs, We’ve ran through the dark.
Just to see what it’s like on the other side.

Chorus.
If you’d care to take this hand, my darling you’ll understand. This cold wind won’t tear us yet. We still got this time to spend. So trust me with eyes so blind, and someday you will find,
Just take some time for me, just you and I

Bridge.
Bet you didn’t know i could scream as loud as i could for you i will
Bet you didn’t know i could scream as loud as i can for you i will

Chorus.
If you’d care to take this hand, my darling you’ll understand. This cold wind won’t tear us yet. We still got this time to spend. So trust me with eyes so blind, and someday you will find,
Just take some time for me, just you and I
Track Name: Back to the Circus
Verse |
There’s so much to say,
but I hear static on the line.
Baby you’re breaking up,
as we are breaking up
what I still can’t define.

There’s so much to say
about the way you rule my mind,
but I just can’t compete,
so I’m stuck out on the street
trying to pass the time.

Chorus |
Now this alleyway is all mine.

Verse 2 |
I’m out of time.
I let my hair grow too long.
She’s the one I blame
for making me insane.
Now I know I was wrong.

I’m out of time.
I pulled the line for too long.
It’s just not the same
singing in the rain
when you’re alone.

Chorus |
But I hear the circus calling me home
Yes I hear the circus calling me home.
