All My Life 03:13
All my life I’ve been searching for some relative energy the world seems to hide it I watched every TV-show I read every smart book that I know (I didn't learn a thing) Slacking my way through life and your heart All my life I’ve been searching for some relentless attribute to make me more exciting I watched every TV-show I read every smart book that I know Slacking my way through life and your heart Originality, criminality words... I feel uninspired also, I feel tired All my life I’ve been searching for some inspiration All my life I’ve been searching for a reputation

All My Time 03:15
How long does it take for my hesitation to grow bold? My world is on fire and I can’t for the life of me put it out without a reason uphold a certain standard to myself, my love, my ego and everybody else (Guitar and stuff) Activating my sensibilities I didn’t do it for you I did it for me all my life I’ve heard the clock mocking me I’m beyond time yet your time is mine I’ve heard my friends mocking me You're behind time yet your time is mine I wouldn’t mind Sacrificing the time of my life I wouldn’t mind Stretching out all of my time All my life I've been searching for something but I can't find it How long does it take for my hesitation to grow bold? I wouldn’t mind Sacrificing the time of my life I wouldn’t mind Stretching out all of my time

I’ve been looking at the same words Four times ten days And I don’t care about your derivatives I’m sitting here kind of but really not sure about why I started to derive you as an adjective a sweet, sweet adjective Your adjectivity warms my serendipity I was lucky that you found me four times ten days ago But things are not as bright as it used to be I’m drowning sorrow and teeth in coffee I’m not really complaining just procrastinating And this could be my final song My headstone should say: He derived his brain away and he did for forty days straight Yeah, this could be my final song My headstone should say: He derived his brain away and he did for forty days straight Come visit me in my deadness To be or not be doubting the core premise of my entirety, my anxiety, my eternity Is this just words for the sake of words? Well, what did you expect? Comprehensive tenderness? This could be my final song My headstone should say: He derived his brain away And he did for forty days straight Yeah, this will be my fi Life goes on, but depression struck us hard Strike us hard Struck us hard The morning sun is cruel to you cruel to me and cruel to you and then to me my love is hardship ever hard enough? Let us melt together Let us melt down forever

I don’t have any real problems, contingencies or structural corruption Seminal doubt is freaking me out Let us buy regret and put our self to sleep You can buy me a car and I’ll pick you up You will give me money but money aint enough I feed the guilt eating me up It will keep on haunting The hunt will never stop I can change but not today I need the new something Please keep the change I don’t have any real problems, contingencies or structural corruption Temporal anxiety crawls down my back repressive chaos in my veins damping chemicals come on please turn on

Where are you going? I’m attending a meeting of some sorts to sort out my future plan What do you want to do when you grow up? Sort out my future plans? It’s not like that I don’t want to do anything I did everything but it’s always the same: More experience? You need more experience for us I’m revealing my own bad surprises (How?) I’m revealing my own bad surprises Nothings secret anymore Give me a job and I’ll give more than you’re paying for All my life I've been searching but I really can't seem to find it I think my world is going under I think I’m running out of reasons to believe Stop staring at an empty wall Stop feeling like everything is going wrong Oh, my thoughts they tend to wander of to places where they shouldn’t be Singing boy, you’re just doing fine Singing boy, you’re just doing fine I think Vygotsky he was right I’m not learning anything without you by my side Come on, man do something productive with your time Will we all burn out together singing boy, melt down forever? I'm picking up the pieces I'm picking up the pieces of my denial And it’s not like that I don’t want to do anything I did everything but it’s always the same: More experience? You need more experience for us I’m revealing my own bad surprises (How?) I’m revealing my own bad surprises Nothings a secret anymore Give me a job and I’ll give more than you’re paying for I’m reluctant to ignore my calls I don’t want to buy electric-boogaloo shorts and that’s my right and that’s what I choose By the way, are you selling shoes? Because I’m walking into abyss there’s so much information I need to miss because I can't deal with it I think my world is going under I’m running out on reasons to believe

All of my mysteries have gone away Go away I’m just phoning it in All my life I’ve been searching for something that the world seems to hide from me What can I be? Life starts right now but I’ve come unprepared Reluctant somehow reality makes it clear It’s the end of an era A new one can begin Maybe, well? I don’t know A new one can begin Time is just a construct A new one can begin I guess A new one can begin Your life can begin (shut up choir) I am reality televised Personalizing parents bad advising I am the monster I resent Personalizing my own bad advises All of my novelties have gone away Make the way depression is in the house Boy, did I become a man growing up to accept who I am and to long for all the things that I’m not at all my life I’ve been searching for something that the world seems to hide from me Who can I be? I am reality televised Personalizing parents bad advising I am the monster I resent Personalizing my own bad advises All my life I’ve been searching for something that the world seems to hide from me

Are we strong enough to withstand the pressure that’s building up? Is hardship ever hard enough? We can’t break down We can break down We can’t break down We can’t break down Take my hand, I’m falling down Take my hand and we’ll touch the ground Bruise a knee and a nail or two But we can’t break apart We can’t break apart We can break apart We can’t break apart All my life I’ve been searching for you Let’s fall in love and then break down too I suppose that’s what real lovers do Not just you and I We’re just not tall enough to touch the sky I find it hard to be your lover when I’m sad all the time I find it hard to be your lover when I'm sad all the time Hardship broke down the two of us We found ourselves in the back the bus Heading out to the final stop Where we got out Where we got out Where we got out Where we got out

The times my old belongings have missed me I’ve been searching for an ordinary day All my life, I’ve been searching for them I’m ego-centric, double ended I’ve been searching for an ordinary day All my life, I’ve been searching for them All my mysteries they flow away Flow away All my novelties have gone away Go away I’ve never dreamed of so much trouble troubling me and who would care? No one’s around here troubling me I’m all alone with my mysteries flowing away Please hold on to me This man isn’t ready to let go of anything or anyone not even this part It’s all too hard Remember all the time? (I can’t) You missed me (I never did) All my mysteries they flow away Flow away All my novelties have gone away Go away Please don’t go I’m not ready yet Sorrow takes a toll on me and I cannot pay Thanks for stopping over Would you like to stay? Just a little longer But it’s time to go But just a little longer No, no, no Just a little longer No, no, no Just a little longer No, no, no Just a little longer No, no, no Just a little longer

Sometimes we don’t end up where we want to be and sometimes life just ends unexpectedly Still I like to think that you’re here with me I know it’s not true, but I want it to be Gotta get home Gotta get home Gotta get Gotta get home Gotta get home Gotta get Get out of my way Get out of my way Get out of my way I want to be with you and life just stops I’ve got a great deal of trouble dealing with you being dead in a hospital bed all by yourself, laying there all by yourself Life is just being life and the coffee it's still bitter sweet life is not playing nice Big blue sky you’ve got nothing hide from me Why isn’t it raining outside my window, tonight? The days just goes on and on and on etc. It’s been a whole year And I’m not ready to talk about it You missed the happiest moment in my life It tears me apart I regret everything that I didn’t do and there’s so much that I didn’t do Sometimes we don’t end up where we want to be And sometimes life just ends unexpectedly Still I like to think that you’re here with me But I know it’s not true, but I want it to be I want it to be

Good morning, everybody How are you doing today? I’m fine, thanks for asking I’m doing okay I never dreamed of trouble I never dreamed of pain I never thought of hardship As a source material thing I’m resisting my urge to repent what I said My stress-levels are rising in unprecedented ways I’m sorry for way that I caused the pain that consumes us Sorrow isn’t easy, sorrow isn’t great Sorrow is just momentary pain eating its way through the man that I remain lost in a spiral going down the drain I’m forgetting appointments made in my name Guilt washes over me shower me with shame all my life all your life I never dreamed of trouble I never dreamed of pain Deal with your sadness Deal with your pain Get a hold on yourself We're moving yet again

about

This is the debut album by Ego & I.

Ego & I is a project that originates from a small coastal city known for its vast nothingness. This place, colloquially known as the ultimate outskirts of the world, has had a tremendous effect on the lyrical themes which deals with loneliness, depression, boredom and ultimately feeling uninspired. Good times.

Anyway, please enjoy the album! Download it and play it really loud anywhere of your choosing. That sounds great, right?
