All of the lyrics, vocals, guitars, bass, mixing, and production on this album were done by me, Cobi. Also, the only microphone used in the recording process of everything was a single Shure SM57. I would also like to extend a special thanks to my good friend Evan for his helpful insights in the making of this EP.

about

Cobi Decatur, Illinois

Nice to meet you, I'm Cobi :)

I'm a guitarist and singer-songwriter from downstate Illinois, and I'm not shy about my eclectic taste in music. Moreover, I'm not shy about showcasing it in my own music (although, if you wanted to, you could probably call nearly everything I do some kind of rock). Check out my material, give me some feedback, like me on Facebook, and so on and so forth :) ... more

Track Name: Fireflies
Look to the windowpane under starlight
Grey eyes gleaming, can't you hear my plight?

And this masquerade will not end
'Til fireflies circle above my head

If I were honest, would you love me anyway?
Secrets to you that I've yet to say

And this masquerade will not end
'Til fireflies circle above my head

Shut out the lights; I wanna get lost in your thoughts
Our hearts are beating
Living we are not

And this masquerade will not end
'Til fireflies circle above my head

I must admit things are not quite what they seem
Another night spent longing, living in a dream

And this masquerade will not end
'Til fireflies circle above my head
'Til fireflies circle above my head
Track Name: Breathe
By and by, Lord
Under blue skies
Storms are comin' today
Trapped in her mind
Like a prison cell
She don't wanna die this way
Well livin' is easy
When livin' is free
But freedom don't know her name
She lives for the day
Only lives in the night
Oh Lord, and it just ain't the same

"Set me free!" she said
"Set me free!"
All she ever wanted was to breathe
"Set me free!"
"Set me free!"

Alone tonight
Hidden with friends
Neon lights guide my way
Words escape
And she dies a drop
With every word she cannot say
Questions rise
Empires will fall
The truth ain't always easy to hear
But I digress
As she grows restless
Echoes of moonlight grow near

And the days all feel the same
When you live without a name
Oh the days all feel the same
When you live without a name

All she ever wanted was to breathe
All she ever wanted was to breathe
All she ever wanted was to breathe
All she ever wanted was...
Track Name: Valerie
Do you feel time slip away?
Like so many promises from yesterday
And are my calls too hard to hear?
As I'm staring in your eyes through the mirror
Don't you know it's meant to be?
Your lies are the daggers slowly killing me

Half-past dead and you think you know sorrow
Accept me today and you'll fake it tomorrow
Tonight I'll just have to bleed
This is your message to me

Valerie
Oh, Valerie
Valerie, Valerie

If I asked you to run away
To drop your hate, and forget the day
What would you say?
I know you lay awake at night
Dreaming in your twilight
It's alright
We're alive tonight...

Your life keeps spinning and you know my way
You'll thank me tomorrow just to throw me away
We're two in the same, when will you see?
This was your message to me

Valerie
Oh, Valerie
Valerie
Oh, Valerie
Track Name: Morningrise
My latest original. Enjoy!
Walking down this secret path
Collect my thoughts, my fears, and I laugh
Sun soon rising with morning mist
Need no reason to exist

Morningrise calls my name
Always searching for the answer
Will I ever find my way?

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep
My mind wanders in absence of sleep
In the early hours, I'll find my way
In the midst of crisis, peace comes today

Morningrise calls my name
Always searching for an answer
Will I ever find a way?

Whispers of the ghosts of your mind
Whispers of the fading moonlight
Now watch the sun at its first light
The morning, morningrise
Morning, Morningrise
Morning...
