Since then, the band has become a studio only project and has just finished recording their first album. "The Falling Sound" is the first of many Rotting Apples albums and showcases the band's more psychedelic/ poppy side, while never shying away from their rock roots. ... more

Track Name: "Poppy Seeds"
All alone
In my own decision
Just a stone
Of my own decision
What you want is what you cannot have
And I remember all those things you had said
Still I'm alone
With my own decision

I never felt a thing
Till you had let me in
And if told you I'd never leave
Could you forgive me when
I let go and know you're there

Back and forth
On the meaning beside you
That you know
It's the only thing that scares you
All you wish is what you cannot save
The past remembers what you want and gave
Back and forth
It's the only thing that scares you

I never felt a thing
Till you had let me in
And if told you I'd never leave
Could you forgive me when
I let go and know you're there

What you want is what you cannot have
And I remember all those things you had said
Just a stone
Of my own decision
All alone
With my own decision

In my own decision
Track Name: "Mission"
Outside a screaming car destroys the silence that was only ours
Another bar, with another falling sound
So slams the door and we go to the night but I wish for the day
You wouldn't stay, so we head into downtown

Let's not go back to Mission
Let's not go there at all
Let's not go back to Mission

The party starts, but by the time we show I know we've gone too far
In the car, another girl slams her head
Somebody speaks out in a haze, they say that I do not belong
She sings a song, and I'm wishing I was dead

Let's not go back to Mission
Let's not go there at all
Let's not go back to Mission

Sick with a fit of rage we stumble through the dark outside your door
The liquor store, and you've lost your keys again
Days turn to weeks and I have lost my senses, I am unafraid
Another day, and I know that its the end

Let's not go back to Mission
Let's not go there at all
Let's not go back to Mission
Track Name: "Wasted Time"
I am a reason
Misplaced, out of touch
Carried outside, always
They don't mean much

I am beneath questions
Answers are mine
I crawl through hours
And dissolve in time
You once were mine

I'll be there for you
Saved from what they put you through
I've made up my mind
Days, I've wasted time

Memories I'm hopeless to
Place through my days
For all the people we knew,
Friends we made

I am a secret you've
Kept all along
Carried through nights when
You knew I was wrong
You've suffered too long

I'll be there for you
Saved from what they put you through
I've made up my mind
Days, I've wasted time

Sorrows adrift
In the age of desire
Course through the veins of
A beauty inspired

There is no way back
Across my front lawn
So rings the bells of a
Girl before dawn
She's moving on...

You are the reason I've
Crossed out of time
Waking reminds me
All I've left behind.
Track Name: "University Night"
If I feel lonely, would you take my hand
You slip through my fingers, and fall out like sand
Someone to wish for, someone to care
Another disaster, we're still unprepared.


A little bit higher
Reaching for
Little bit higher
Just once more


Into a city, they turned out the lights
The moon hanging over, bathing you white
Running in circles, and chasing the stars
Seconds of sirens, and blaring of cars


A little bit higher
Reaching for
Little bit higher
Just once more


Dreams of a lover, and memories of you
Trying to change all that I ever knew
Switching the time out, and ready for bed
To wade in the pool of everything that I've said


A little bit higher
Reaching for
Little bit higher
Just once more
Track Name: "The Day I Grew So Old"
Words resolve in company
Defined in mind, they're buried in
A world devoid of self-esteem
The day I would begin

Spin waking, holes in the eyes of a world in bed
Hands shaking, crumble in what I know but never said

A second time to blow off steam
The heads all read the news aloud
A narrow mind, they're burning clean
The day I was so proud

Remind me what it was I walked out of on the way
Store bought dreams, cooked in a summer blind and thrown away

So it begins that I always feel strange
Never remind me what I wouldn't change
In a transition, a ghost on its way
Steps in a corner, all I wanted to say

Erasing, burned in the back of roads we fell down on
It won't seem easy to fix notions now that we're gone

Wait behind the walls, they sing
Arrest the feelings that you hold
I want to know what silence brings
The day I grew so old
Track Name: "Summer '08"
Summer has come here again
Burning in a wave
Hell that I have come to see
Time that I couldn't save

Standing next to me
The look she gave to me

Another shift ends
Going home
Wait around and
Find myself alone

The clock ticking
And she's waiting just for me
Night moving
And it's gone


Walking Panorama
To see my best friend
TV days of long ago
I wish that it would never end

Staring at the sea
The time we went to see

Another show done
One to go
Time has run thin
But I hate to know

When Fall brings me
A place I want to leave
Remembering
And it's gone


Outside where I learned to breathe
The moon hangs overhead
Crashing with an urgency
When I thought that I was dead

Standing at the scene
The looks they gave to me

Just a wish and
All unchanged
Not for wanting
My hands' so strange

A voice yelling
And pulled me out of the way
Head shaking
And its gone

A voice yelling
And pulled me out of the way
Head shaking
And its gone...
Track Name: "A Hive Mind"
Stretching my hand
'Cause I'm hoping to find
Hoping to hide you
In parts of my mind
Painful, I love you
Heart swelling blind

Bones seared and blackened
Falling behind
Mouth of a cynic
Hands of a scribe
Eyes of an innocent
Leading a tribe
Eyes of an innocent
Leading a tribe

Light in the tunnel drowned out
The tide comes in, we go down
Hope in the future dashed now
Belief in its worth fades out

Stretching my hand out
'Cause I hope to find you
And then hide you
In parts of my mind
It's so painful but I
Know it's like you

Bones seared and blackened
Falling behind
Mouth of a cynic
Hands of a scribe
Eyes of an innocent
Leading a tribe
Eyes of an innocent
Leading a tribe

Light in the tunnel drowned out
The tide comes in, we go down
Hope in the future dashed now
Belief in its worth fades out
Track Name: "The Wendigo"
Lost, snowed out and hungry
Years, here it all looks the same
I have dreams of that warmer place, and
A feast for all in my name

Somebody asked me why
Why, I even care to try
They know all of my fears, and
There is no place to hide

Melt, out in the high noon
Burns, skies dead and black within
They hold lovers I once held so strong
And break, it's snowing again

Somebody asked me why
Why, I even care to try
They know all of my fears, and
There is no place to hide

There is no shade in here...
Track Name: "Orange Dreams"
Time sinks in my eyes
Ready to die for your love
I cannot deny you're mine
You're not enough

All the times I would see you smile
You're on your way back down here a while
Knocking out through the walls, pushing out through them all
Caved inside your head

Rage, open the ceiling up
Washing me out

We've tired all the times when,
No promise we can't change them
I'll survive, but could you save yourself?
And them all from me

I can't sleep
You're the only one who dreams
The end of everything

Crawl inside your room
Setting the moon inside of your eyes
Lips, your fingertips move in
To silence your cries

I'm inside
The walls are mine
Behind the hour
Of all you wished for
Escape from nothing's past, more
I will take all they give to you
In your dreams, I'm forever there
Hiding in the corner of the day

Eyes that sympathize
Ready to die for my love
Dreams silence your screaming mind
Of your last breath

I forget all the times when
Pictures were only pieces
Of a day that's lost and suffered
Outside of a screen.
Track Name: "Your Love Won't Change"
When I was younger I wasted my days
When I got older I never could say

Your love, your love won't change

Seconds erased and nobody knows
Where have the days gone and where will we go?

Your love, your love won't change
Your love, your love won't change

A time old decision of wishes unchanged
Fear of another, I fell in a daze

Your love, your love won't change

Frayed at the edges and blackened my days
Cracked in a corner and drained without say

Your love, your love won't change
Your love, your love won't change


All that I've known is a secret we've passed
Fragments of empty desires and laughs
I gave you my old eyes
So long before I'd known my tearful goodbyes

Separate in memory I'm never the same
Years before you cried out for the old names
My mind made up in spades
So leave your old comforts, they're spit in the rain

We've buried our friends and we've taken their lives
Torn out in silence, I wish I knew mine
More to bear the old age
So wait here in sadness and run in your cage

Makeshift a home that you'll hide all your dreams
Stretch out the past till it no longer seems
Real to those you love most
I'll be back in time to remember your ghost

Demons of waiting and circles that rhyme
Crashing with madness while we flirt with time
Crawl on, call my own mind
The world will lean on you if you let them try

Hopeful for reasons I no longer claim
Begging for times that I've lost down the drain
Your love will never change
So break all the pieces we're far out of range
Track Name: "The Shade of My Day"
Ring the last bell
That I knew so well, long gone
And our fallen sounds
They're marked in the ground, buried

The shade of my day
The words I would say, fading

Well everyone's gone
We've waited too long
I wish I could follow
I saw you again
So this is the end
The words were so hollow

Misled and tried
My words won't apply, they worry
But if I go through
I'll still look for you, out there

But know that someday
That we all could say, we were there

Impatient I know
The future will show
In dreams I've been haunted
The memories I hold
My heart getting old
The life that I've wanted
Track Name: "Coming Home"
We're coming home, coming home, coming home again
Coming home, coming home, coming home again
From Houston, to LA, I'll never see you again
Coming home, coming home, coming home again.

I am a past thought, a shadow on her wall
Memories of times, of a day, when I still stood by her side
See, I dream of her in her summer dress
It seems I've had to leave for good, into the great divide

We're coming home, coming home, coming home again
Coming home, coming home, coming home again

Days slowed down and weeks became our fear, then…
And I am sure she'll move on and forget me when I'm gone
She told me that it's over now
Still, I look back on those days and wish we'd made it through somehow

We're coming home, coming home, coming home again
Coming home, coming home, coming home again
From Houston, to LA, I'll never see you again
Coming home, coming home, coming home again.
