about

This is the first Act of "The Everything Nothing" and is an introduction to the song cycle of the full length record, which will release summer 2013.

"One day the skin will be gone. We are afraid of the inevitable, so we seek distractions — we plug in — to avoid the unpleasant internal dialogue. The Plug helps us feel as though time has stopped, but the clock tick-tocks away and all that happened is that we missed a beat." from The Everything Nothing: Act 1 by Eve Ami.

Track Name: Throw Me A Line
There’s a big black hole and me in the center
Yelling help please help please help
It’s a dead end street in the heart of winter
Where only the wicked walk
Where only the wicked walk
Where only the wicked walk

There is magic in the city she’s drowning in it quickly
Get there in time throw me a line someone be kind
There’s a desert oasis where the sun has many faces
Oh, there’s water on the moon throw me a line

There’s a big black hole only I am to blame for
It’s a crime from a lifetime ago
There’s a clock that ticks and a lonely death wish
Tell me when will this end?
Tell me when will this end?
Tell me I’ll see the sky again..

There is magic in the city she’s drowning in it quickly
Get there in time throw me a line someone be kind
There’s a desert oasis where the sun has many faces
Oh, there’s water on the moon throw me a line

Throw me a line. Throw me a line.
Throw me a line. Throw me a line.

I got to get out
Feel the wind on my face
I got to run for miles
Just to find an embrace
I got to get out
get out into the air
I got to run for home
and feel the wind in my hair

When the sun crosses the milky-way
the planets will align
everyone better get in line
Cause the worlds gonna rise
and the light’s gonna shine

Where only the wicked walk
the worlds gonna rise
and the light’s gonna shine
There’s water on the moon
throw me a line
Track Name: Another Day
You’re the devil’s angel
coming up to taste me
To take me far away
I can’t let you bind me
even if you find me
Somewhere deep inside
I promise you
I promise you I will...

Another day, I’m waiting for you
Another Day, I’m waiting for you

Poison is your kiss
a bitterness I miss
A web I can’t unweave
If I gave you my heart,
would you tear it apart?
I can’t take the risk, but
I promise you,
I promise you I will...

Another day, I’m waiting for you
Another Day, I’m waiting for you

I’m gonna push you under
I’m gonna push you under me
I’m gonna let you in
I’m gonna let you into me

Another day, I’m waiting for you
Another Day, I’m waiting for you
Another day, I promise you
I promise you I will...
Track Name: Self Sabotage
Sex and tricks and monkey bits
Expectations that don't fit
Sitting in a red sea
With a melody and a cup of tea

Watching the war wage and
Laughing in a fit of rage
Drinking like a fish
What a Fine Fine Dish I make
When I'm laying on the floor

Decadence
Nothing makes sense
All I feel is emptiness

I'm gonna self-sabotage
The Queen of self-sabotage
Not gonna listen to a single word you say
I'm gonna self-sabotage
The Queen of self-sabotage
I'm gonna take it all and throw it all away!

Snort On the Dial
It's been a long while
Since I've seen the morning sunshine
It's sleeping time, but I'll feel fine
Hit the street without a dime

Spineless and Heartless,
A sad, sad case of despair
Will someone please help pick up
The pieces I left on the floor

I got myself into this mess and
I've come to you to confess...

I'm gonna self-sabotage
The Queen of self-sabotage
Not gonna listen to a single word you say
I'm gonna self-sabotage
The Queen of self-sabotage
I'm gonna take it all and throw it all away!
I'm gonna self-sabotage
The Queen of self-sabotage
I'll push until I feel the earth begin to quake
I'm gonna self-sabotage
The Queen of self-sabotage
I'll stand here on the edge until I fall and break....
Track Name: When I Was Young
When I was young I thought I'd grow old in your arms
When I was young I thought I'd be rich and famous
When I was young I thought everything was magic
and all I'd do was click my red shoes

Now I'm on the sidewalk
Begging for mercy
just a token or two
Now I'm at your doorstep
Begging for your love
for just a moment or two

When I was young I had thousands of secrets
I'd whisper softly to the wind
When I was young I'd play Scrabble for hours
and sing Elvis in the dark

Now I'm on the sidewalk
Begging for mercy
just a token or two
Now I'm at your doorstep
Begging for your love
for just a moment or two

What are we coming to
That I've got to beg you?
That I've got to beg you?
What's this world coming to
That I've got to beg you?
To beg you....
Ooh I've got to beg you....
Where's the love?
Where's the love?
Where's the love?
Where's the love?
Track Name: Temptress
She lives in marble halls
The Temptress
Behind those castle walls she waits in silence
For you to lose yourself in her siren's song,
and then she's gone

And in the night you'll hear her whisper softly
Words you can't repeat
You find yourself in a sea of love
With nothing but the stars above

Awake! It's dangerous
Oh she's a temptress
Maybe if you catch her
She'll sweep you off your feet
And you know if she asks you to
Nothing's gonna stop you
Oh Oh Oh She's a temptress

Your dreams are built upon a rock of ages
A story that's rewritten on blank pages
The hunt is in your blood
There's nothing to be done
Until you've won

You pray to god that if he brings you to her
Til eternity you'll cherish her

Awake! It's dangerous
Oh she's a temptress
Maybe if you catch her
She'll sweep you off your feet
And you know if she asks you to
Nothing's gonna stop you
Oh Oh Oh She's a temptress

You pray to god that if he brings you to her
Til eternity you'll cherish her
The Temptress
You pray to god that she'll never roam
Then you take her in your arms
And it feels like home
The Temptress

Awake! It's dangerous
Oh she's a temptress
Maybe if you catch her
She'll sweep you off your feet
And you know if she asks you to
Nothing's gonna stop you
Oh Oh Oh She's a temptress
Track Name: Throw Me A Line (Radio Edit)
There’s a big black hole and me in the center
Yelling help please help please help
It’s a dead end street in the heart of winter
Where only the wicked walk
Where only the wicked walk
Where only the wicked walk

There is magic in the city she’s drowning in it quickly
Get there in time throw me a line someone be kind
There’s a desert oasis where the sun has many faces
Oh, there’s water on the moon throw me a line

There’s a big black hole only I am to blame for
It’s a crime from a lifetime ago
There’s a clock that ticks and a lonely death wish
Tell me when will this end?
Tell me when will this end?
Tell me I’ll see the sky again..

There is magic in the city she’s drowning in it quickly
Get there in time throw me a line someone be kind
There’s a desert oasis where the sun has many faces
Oh, there’s water on the moon throw me a line

Throw me a line. Throw me a line.
Throw me a line. Throw me a line.

I got to get out
Feel the wind on my face
I got to run for miles
Just to find an embrace
I got to get out

There’s water on the moon throw me a line
