Tactful Procrastination Sound & Vision

About Tactful Procrastination

It's primarily about that feeling you get when you wake up one morning and realize... shit. I'm older. I don't have this dreamed-up future in front of me where the sky's the limit. I have responsibilities. I have a family. I have a job and a mortgage. All of these adult things that suddenly make the dream feel far off. Unattainable, even.

Tactful Procrastination Lyrics

The Art of Tactful Procrastination

Alarm bells ring feel the sting of the morning light
Keep your eyes closed try to hold on to the dying night
Well there's more going on in your heart
And it will try to pry you apart
Like your dreams are over before they even start

Tear down the sun

What say you
When words are too late?
Betray you
The longer you wait
Maybe it's true
You can hang it on a star
Is that what you want?
Is that what you are?
The story...

You only wanted to be loved
Who will love what you become?
After all is said and done
There's nothing new under the sun

Where there's no wishes
There is no crisis
No compromises

Heartbeat stalls when it falls in and out of sight
Simple so far but you are more than maybes and mights
Beneath a born again broken beat
When the dawn is gone you still won't sleep
But the morning is full of promises it can't keep

Tear down the sun

What say you
When words are too late?
Betray you
The longer you wait
Maybe it's true
You can hang it on a star
Is that what you want?
Is that what you are?
The story so far

Nobody knows your name

RIOT

Thoughts break into your heart
Again tonight
What you got’s tearing you apart
It ends tonight
Scriptures ain’t got much to say
When the pictures of you get traded away
But you're caught sounding the alarm
It ends tonight

And in your heart
It ends tonight
Your open heart
Do or die

Heart's burning all you have
To their delight
But it’s hard turning all those shadows
Into light
Blisters slithering up your sleeve
Whispers of all you've yet to conceive
Heart's yearning for those shackles
To ignite

No disregard
No wrong or right
In your heart
It ends tonight

You cannot hide what's inside you riots
Uh huh
You scream like a dream divided
Uh huh

When the night shakes loose
And the sky breaks through
It's alright

Nobody knows your name
But it's alright

There's no forever
What you see is what you get
But you haven't done it yet

There is no never
(There is no never)
The bond that's broken isn't set
If you haven't spoken yet

There's no surrender
As if you're going somewhere
But oh, on your way down
You will see

Thoughts shaping the abyss
It ends tonight
Like a knot aching in your fist
It ends tonight

No morning star
No compromise
In your heart
It ends tonight

In your mind you're inclined to riot
Uh huh
You scream like a dream divided
Uh huh

When the night shakes loose
And the sky breaks through
It's alright

Nobody knows your name
But it's alright

Tactful Procrastination Trivia And Other Stories

"I felt it was a really good introduction to what I'm trying to do now and what I'm trying to say and what I want the focus to be... It could have easily been this or 'Still No Closer To Tomorrow', because I think that song, more than any song on the album, really encapsulates what the album is about."

"I'm kind of a big believer that if you're going to lead off with a new single from an album... And I don't really have any data to back up this kind of thing... I'm kind of more like faster song, up tempo, than to do it with a slow tempo one."

"When I started getting it out for reviews there were a lot of people saying they didn't want to put it on their playlists because they thought it was too pop... Like too top 40 sounding. And I'm like, really? I do not get that. Like I'm looking for indie. And they're like, no, that doesn't sound indie enough for us. I'm like, OK, well, I guess I'll take that as a compliment."
