The Pixels EP from Patrick Sprague is the precursor, the prologue, the introduction, if you will, to his upcoming full-length release in 2013.

Featuring 3 pre-production quality recordings from that full-length release, you'll get a sneak peak at the album for a great price, before drum recording, retracking, mixing and mastering.

about

Patrick Sprague Salt Lake City, Utah

I make music. Some of it's pretty. Some of it's loud. Hopefully it's both.

I will never write a song about pickles. They're disgusting.

Track Name: Sleep
welcome to earth
welcome to pain
welcome to lust and lies
and hearts that are full of dirt

I'll play the fool
and you'll play the odds
and I'll count the cost of being up this creek alone

'cause I chose love
over loving you
now the ground is crying out
beneath my shoes

sleep won't bring us the rest we're longing for
cause if I close my eyes all I see is that open door
sleep won't bring us the rest we're longing for
cause if I close my eyes all I see is that open door

I play these rooms
for the finest of men
and still nothing compares
to singing my heart to you

I'll pay the cost
I'll take the pain
just to keep your heart
on my mind

we're only as sick
as our darkest of secrets
and I'm OK to take a few pills
each day

sleep won't bring us the rest we're longing for
cause if I close my eyes all I see is that open door
sleep won't bring us the rest we're longing for
cause if I close my eyes all I see is that open door

sleep is never close enough to
sleep is never close enough to
sleep is never close enough to
sleep is never close enough to you

sleep is never close enough to
sleep is never close enough to
sleep is never close enough to
sleep is never close enough to you

your eyes, they tie me to your bedpost
your lips, they sink me into repose
sleep will never be the same again

your eyes, they tie me to your bedpost
your lips, they sink me into repose
sleep will never be the same again

sleep won't bring us the rest we're longing for
cause if I close my eyes all I see is that open door
sleep won't bring us the rest we're longing for
cause if I close my eyes all I see is that open door
Track Name: Hidden Things
meet me outside won't you pick me up
take me for a drive we can press our luck
tell me everything that I wanna know
all the hidden things that you never show

let me in let me see your heart
all your darkest sins and your broken parts
it's the thirst of knowing everything
that'll make me one of your hidden things

you drew them out and you gave them voice
all my darkest thoughts and the hidden things
you let me in to your game of choice
if you make a move, will I make a noise?

blood rush in, under your skin
it would sell us out to the cheapest bid
so let me know what you wanna do
are the hidden things all there is to you?

all the things we love
we sold them for a blood rush
everything we said we were
we sold it for a blood rush

open that door let you have a peek
now the secret's yours, and ours to keep
bated breath, won't you hold it tight?
if you let it out, it'll fuel this fire

I want to know who you really are
and I'll keep on driving till we get that far
so come on let's go baby can't you see
make the hidden things our reality

all the things we love
we sold them for a blood rush
everything we said we were
we sold it for a blood rush

all the things we love
we sold them for a blood rush
everything we said we were
we sold it for a blood rush
Track Name: Pixels
living through your pictures
dreaming through these pixels
cause it's the only glimpse of you
I get these days

I'm taking all these hints girl
from your points and clicks
that your heart beats faster
for me today

am I just a pixel
in your bigger picture?
where do I fit girl,
with you?

all I see
is what the lens lets me
a love I'm jealous for
from afar

I swear, through the bending light and frames
that I hear, you calling out my name
and you know, that my heart is yours to take
so you pose, and steal it frame by frame
it's like your pictures, your pixels, get me through the day
it's like your pictures, your pixels, steal me frame by frame
your pictures, your pixels
your pictures, your pixels

we put it in a three by five
our hearts were froze in time
put it in a frame and hang it high

I couldn't throw your words away
is it still what you'd say?
is it true?
is that you?

do you love me?
could you hold me?
could we frame this, and the whole thing?
I don't want to be a slip in your stride

we could take pictures of
all the things we want to love
and I'd take you
above them all

I swear, through the bending light and frames
that I hear, you calling out my name
and you know, that my heart is yours to take
so you pose, and steal it frame by frame
it's like your pictures, your pixels, get me through the day
it's like your pictures, your pixels, steal me frame by frame
I swear, through the bending light and frames
that I hear, you calling out my name
and you know, that my heart is yours to take
so you pose, and steal it frame by frame
it's like your pictures, your pixels, get me through the day
it's like your pictures, your pixels, steal me frame by frame
your pictures, your pixels
your pictures, your pixels
