about

This release is a PAY WHAT YOU WANT download and ALL of the money from this month is going directly into getting toiletries for Flint Water Crisis victims. At the end of the month we’ll be taking the money and shopping for the most cost effective way to fill our van with goods and dropping it off to the Bethel United Methodist Church in Flint where they have a donation station for residents. The money won’t be going to some organization that has millions of dollars saved up, this is going directly to a cause where we know it will be taken care of.

Thank you for supporting our band. We hope you enjoy the songs. As always, we hope what we do inspires you to do the same. Together we can make a difference.

Treat people like people again.
-Jonathan / Baggage

Track Name: The Good That Never Comes
This old tree is losing all its leaves
You can count the lines under my eyes
To see just how old I feel
You want the truth? Maybe it’s not so bad.
Someone knocked me down for good
Cut me up for firewood

You’re living your dream
Just never with me

Shame on me waiting for the good that never comes

It’s hard to believe, but isn’t it obvious
When I feel the pain go from my neck
to pins and needles in my hands
It was OK then I had to start from scratch
‘cause you took want everything you want
and that took everything from me

Shame on me waiting for the good that never comes

Is it a dream?
Well, it’s real to me
‘Cause everyone, they’re making excuses ‘cause they’re supposed to breathe

Shame on me waiting for the good that never comes
Track Name: Staring At The Wing
Staring at the wing
Wish I could grow a pair or jump of this thing
but that was years ago
You know the funny thing?
I’m not afraid of heights, but change still haunts me
to the bone, but you’ll never know
how far I’d go

I used to say to never forget the way we were then
But now things have changed, it’s high noon again
and you’re stuck in bed

Time to reevaluate, priorities in check
check please I’m running late
to the homes of the ones I love
I’ve been freaking out

I used to say to never forget the way we were then
But now things have changed, it’s high noon again
and you’re stuck in bed

Now it’s high noon. Leaving the dark room.
I hope you stay soon so I can thank you.
Track Name: Half Full
Another headline, another man who shot into a crowd
And I won’t hear a thing
Now I look outside and I don't even recognize my street
The path waiting for me
It’s cold and I know time won’t wait for me
Time won’t wait for me

Hey, we’re not OK
But I’m better than you think I am

I’m thinking that
You gave up on humanity
But the difference is I believe in human beings
The darkest part is waking up 
But time won’t wake me up

Hey, we’re not OK 
But I’m better than you think I am
You must be confused
If you’re thinking that we had no chance
We’ve got a chance

He believes there’s nothing left
Except the bottle that was always sitting on the shelf
He takes a few drinks, starts laughing to himself
And he says, “The bottle looks half full to me.” 
It’s half full to me…

Hey, we’re not OK
But I’m better than you think I am
You must be confused
If you’re thinking that we have no chance
We’ve got a chance
