TheLoyalBro Steven has been making music for quite some time now and his debut EP is a treat for anyone looking for fun lyrics and catchy synths. Steven's lyric writing in particular is one of his strongest points in his music for me and they do a wonderful job at making each track memorable. Favorite track: Everything is Terrible!.

Track Name: Everything is Terrible!
Fall asleep, fall asleep for the love of god I'm begging you
For eight hours... or maybe five or four or two
In my head, an orchestra plays its seventh symphony
Am I dead, or is hell too good for me?

Day by day, getting swept away,
It's a downward spiral into sorrow
So if it's quite alright, think I'll skip tonight
We can take this up tomorrow

Everything is terrible!
And everything's in vain.
Empires rise, ineffable
Now they’re history all the same
Well, I never saw them crumble
And I never saw them reign
But everything is terrible!
It's always been that way.

I bought a sphere and inside of the shell lives a tiny pyramid.
It's so wise, and it shared with me a gift:
“Ask away, ask away and I'll tell you everything I can.
If I don't, you just couldn't understand.”

“Will I be stuck here?” “Outlook is unclear.
I don't know- maybe so? Ask me later.”
It's a breach of trust that will leave me crushed,
So I hope this way I'm safer...

Everything is terrible!
And everything's in vain.
Kingdoms rise, ineffable
Now they’re history all the same
Well, I never saw them crumble
And I never saw them reign
But everything is terrible!
And it's always been that way.

It's always been that way, been that way.

If life is just a game, then I don't wanna play.
If life is just a game, then I don't wanna play.
If life is just a game, then I don't wanna play.
If life is just a game, then I don't wanna play.


Everything is terrible!
Everything's in vain.
Kingdoms rise, ineffable
Now they’re history all the same
Well, I never saw them crumble
And I never saw them reign
But everything is terrible!
And it'll always be that way!

Everything is terrible!
Everything's in vain.
Kingdoms rise, ineffable
Now they’re history all the same
Well, I never saw them crumble
And I never saw them reign
But everything is terrible!
And it'll always be that way!

It'll always be, it'll always be,
It'll always, will always, will always be that way.
Everything no, everything no,
Everything now, every every
Everything now. Now.
Track Name: Strangers
Barely spoke: "What a hopeless place to be."
All alone everybody, you, and me.
Adjust your mind- just as fake. no clarity.
You might find it's too late for sincerity.

We're strangers, you and me.
How I strain, all the same,
You drift so far away from me.
We speak so easily in our dreams.

Should I hope that you just need time to fix?
If you don't then I know how hard it hits.
In this vein I believe this fantasy:
That one day all your pain will be relieved,
And you'll come back to me...

We're strangers, you and me.
How I strain, all the same,
You drift so far away from me.
We speak so easily in our dreams.

Why you say all these bitter things, I don't know.
How this world's a conspiracy, I don't know.
How to deal with family, I don't know.
How to heal when you're killing me, I don't know.

Now I know that you don't know,
Just how you come across
I'll go insane, and who's to blame
The mind is all but lost...

Or maybe I could break on through
And finally see who's truly you.

I believed but I can't believe no more.
So you leave, you leave me on the floor.

We're strangers, you and me.
How I strain, all the same,
You drift so far away from me.
We speak so easily in our dreams.
We're strangers, you and me.
How I strain, all the same,
You drift so far away from me.
We speak so easily in our dreams.
Track Name: Love You More
They always say
You don't know what you have till it fades away
A cliche turn of phrase.
But how you feel
Determines what is real
And right now all I feel is pain.

"We're here for you
And we know what to do and this process
Is not a crutch as much as a tool.
It'll pass, real soon
So take your time, and remember we're all here for you
And we know what to do..."


Till the end of time,
When I've grown old, and when my life is through,
I know I'll still think of you, so.

I know I wasn't always there.
Left the bridges in disrepair.
Made it look like I didn't care.
But your heart shook me to the core.
Now it's you that I'm thankful for,
And I loved, and I love you more.

Just let it go:
There's no use stressing over what you know,
You'll never get to change...
But how, how can I do it?
When every little thing reminds me,
And when I sing...
No, I can't get away.

I miss you...
I miss you...

But does it really matter?
Oh, does it really matter?
'Cause now it's just too late.
And my head feels empty.
And these words feel empty.
It's just a song you'll never hear me sing...

Be that as it may,
I'll find a way to
Make it up to you.
Until then? Thank you.

I know I wasn't always there...
I know I wasn't always there.
Left the bridges in disrepair.
Made it look like I didn't care.
But your heart shook me to the core.
Now it's you that I'm thankful for,
And I loved, and I love you more.
And I loved, and I love you more.
And I loved, and I love you more.
And I loved, and I love you more.
And I loved, and I love you more...
Track Name: What You're After (ft. Jeff Burgess)
I'm sure you'll know when you feel it.
I'm certain you'll soon see.
Two takes, to make sure it's real and
You want no part of me.

I know I'll never believe them:
No fates can intertwine.
There's never been a good reason,
To say I feel more than fine.

Why do you do the things you do?
You're wasting away your pride, your youth
I've seen how it weighs, no, it's no use.
No, I know. No, I know- Don't you?

Your lips are sealed up with laughter.
Your fists can never convey.
No nails will cover this plaster.
Your words can never betray.

Don't need to play up your chances;
You never took them to start.
Contolled in all circumstances,
Enclosed: your bulletproof heart.

Why do you do the things you do?
You're wasting away your pride, your youth
I've seen how it weighs, no, it's no use.
No, I know. No, I know- Don't you?

Why do you do the things you do?
But still you pretend you've seen the truth.
A passion, a flash, and then it's through.
No, I know. No, I know- Don't you?

Why do you do the things you do? (I never know, I never know.)
Forgetting it all- that same old tune (I never know, I never know.)
Playing it off, you always knew (I never know, I never-)
I don't know, I don't know. Do you?
Track Name: So Far
I'm on a roll, but now where can we go
To get some time just on our own

I love who you are, but we'll never get far
If we never get some time alone

I'm not a pest, but I'll never get rest
If I let this moment pass here yet.

Lonely at worst, so I make a move first
The future's worth a chance I bet.

(I bet. I bet. I bet. I bet.)

So far.
So far.
So far away.
You are.
You are.
A million miles away.
So far away.

The hands on the clock, how I wish they would stop
Whenever I see you come near.

I'm frozen in place by such a beautiful face
So what is it that I do here?

Forget all my dreams, I don't need anything
Just place your hand right next to mine.

You'd laugh at my words, just as soon you'd heard...
But still I know, I've got to try.

So far.
So far.
So far away.
You are.
You are.
A million years away.
So far away.
