about

Curtain Jumper was a big part of my high school identity. The band was formed in grade 9 and we played our first show February of 2008. My first performances and songs came out of this period. Although there were a few people who came in and out of the band, it remained a punk outfit inspired by the genre that had gripped me and didn’t let go. I met a lot of cool and interesting people during my time with Curtain Jumper and played some memorable shows. These 5 songs are a collection of material recorded in grade 10 around 2009. The songs were never mixed and the vocals needed a lot of work so the boys in Stranded Cruiser helped me finish them up. Not sure if I wanted these songs done to finally close the door on my first band but I did know that I really wanted to share this music with everyone. Thank you to everyone who was a part of Curtain Jumper and helped me along my musical journey.

Track Name: Promise Of A Lie
What you saying?
I can't hear you now.
Bring me down, bring me down. Drop it.
You want a promise?
I won't promise.
It's in my hands, I think I'll break it.

I think you'll lie this time.
Come on, come on, another try.
What trust I had is gone again.

I shot it.
I'll exhaust it.
I don't want it.
I'm happy now, I'm dumb now.
Track Name: Higher
Keep on talking, don't stop
Cause I know you cannot leave.
Go on, you're stuck
And I can see what you don't believe.

It's good to fake it sometimes, but not all the time.

Don't know what to do.
Don't know what to say.
Take me higher.

I know what to feel and it's in that place.
Where things are perfect and you're not there to change my ways.

And I can feel it stop now.
My heart's not beating, I'm not breathing now.

Don't know what to do.
Don't know what to say.
Take me higher.
Track Name: S.O.F
She's lonely again, desperate today.
Needs someone to swallow her pain.
He's lost.
Control she can't take.
Pushed it too far, it all breaks.

We can't see what's fake and meant to be.
This is all happening just to you.

She's down again, temper explodes.
Just pound away, tension unfolds.
He's threatened again, tries to take it all.
She's gonna beat him to it.
Intentions stay strong.

We won't believe this fucked up reality.
Living in tragedy just for you.

All for you.

Stay away, not too close.
Lost in a haze.
You have the most pressure to take.
If that's what you say.
In reality, you're so fake.

She ignores, but waits by the phone.
Needs a call to forget she's alone.
Talk, talk talk. You're so cheap.
Nothing's better, the bullshit's grown deep.

We can't see what's fake and meant to be.
This is all happening just to you.
We won't believe this fucked up reality.
Living in tragedy just for you.

All for you.
Track Name: Killing Time
Standing in line right now.
Thinking how I made you proud like I was your trophy.
Maybe I got caught up, wasn't good enough.
Wish you thought more of me.

You told me to go but there's nowhere to run.
Left me behind, said I was no one.
I thought you were gone, I thought you were mine.
But we're just standing here killing time.

Why can't I go back? You know it's all I want.
Can't change my ways, it's all been said and done.

Maybe I was scared, tired, under-prepared.
Got me feeling no good.
I deserve to be in.
had my taste of sin.
I loved it and I'd do it all again if I could.

You told me to go but there's nowhere to run.
Left me behind, said I was no one.
I thought you were gone, I thought you were mine.
But we're just standing here killing time.

Why can't I go back? You know it's all I want.
Can't change my ways, it's all been said and done.
Track Name: Another Reason
Another chance please.
Steal their machine.
Collapse into the green. Share this seat.

Don't ask why.
Kill before it dies.
Don't you turn and hide. Blindside.

Come back, I need you right now.
Times have changed.
Let go, never hold your idol so high.
I have changed.

Another reason now.
Lay your hands down.
Don't shout so loud. Too loud.

Time has passed.
Gone too fast.
Gotta make the moments last. Gone fast.
