Notes:

In celebration of 75 weeks of new music I made you a gift: Three Totally Free E.P.s for you and your loved ones to enjoy, available here on Bandcamp. These E.P.s include some of my favorite Mount Everest songs, and each reflects a particular mood, sentiment, or aspect of the music that I write week after week. They will be free for a limited time only, so jump on this opportunity.

This week’s song is about suffering through the worst party ever. It’s the kind of party filled with the worst people you can think of. They are the kind of people who make you question the goodness of humanity. They are pretentious, self absorbed, obnoxious, fake, or whatever makes your blood boil in a social scenario. You are stuck there, and you’ve probably had a few too many drinks to try and make the situation bearable. It didn’t work. It’s a rock and roll song and it’s awesome. It’s the first track on “Cut and Run” (the red E.P. down below). Please download it and share it, and scroll way down to the bottom and hit “like” so all of your friends will know all about crazy old Mount Everest giving all his stuff away for free!

Here’s hoping your Monday doesn’t totally suck.
~M.E.

P.S. Track 5 on “Physical Things” was co-written with Nick Mastors

lyrics

Lyrics:

My God, this watch stopped hours ago
The clockwork stealing time
A feeling you should know
And these, the faces of a crowd
The honor is all mine
Their glances getting loud

And how much have I had tonight?
How cynical my words
Aware of every slight

I’m caught in visions of despots learning
Save the children
House is burning

My God, my ride left hours ago
I spilled my drink tonight
A feeling you should know

I’m here, but were we ever friends?
What history do we share?
Too tired to pretend

I’m up all night
And it’s disconcerting
I’m stuck in place
And the Earth is turning
Earth is turning

Well I got feet
And you got heart
And you should know

You reach your hand up from the crowd
And then you go

This isn’t how the world ends
Would you like to know?

I’ve got a friend
Looks just like you
From years ago
