Andy's Toys Schenectady, New York

I'm Jared and my music project is called Andy's Toys. I write, record, mix, and (poorly) master everything in my studio-apartment in Schenectady New York with the help of my profoundly enthusiastic dog Lola.

Track Name: Don't Be Stoopie
Maybe “maybe” is not the same to me
Maybe “maybe” means “maybe yes”
Like maybe I’m here maybe I care maybe I’m interested
Maybe this causes me stress
Maybe I should take some deep breaths

Maybe this will work out
Maybe this is for the best
Maybe you’re sure but maybe it’s easier for you to maybe me to death
Maybe this causes me stress
Maybe I should take some deep breaths

I’m looking for motion and you tell me maybe and that things are fine
Maybe I’m crazy but I think that maybe you’re out of time

You said maybe this was something, maybe we’ll meet again
But if maybe meant maybe no, why were your hands where they were when you said it?

I’m looking for motion and you tell me maybe and that things are fine
Maybe I’m crazy but I think that maybe you’re out of time
Track Name: K2
Below me are thousands of men
They growl from their stomachs I’ll be an easy conquer
Arrogantly they enter the trail without an inkling they will fail
That’s not my problem

At your first respite from the ascent
Your eyes will only believe what they want to
Now as the clouds move, you realize there’s more up to go
Well that’s not in my control

Now you think you’ve had enough?
Now you think that this is tough?
Now you’re feeling more unsure?
Now the men no longer roar?
Where was this feeling before?
We’ve only just begun

It seems the group has thinned in size
Now the growl in their stomachs is for food and water
You remember hours ago, when they joked that I’m a piece of cake?
Well that wasn’t my mistake

Now you think you’ve had enough?
Now you think that this is tough?
Now you’re feeling some regrets?
How'll they ration what is left?
Now you pray that you are blessed?
We’ve only just begun

First you said it’s not much
Now it’s more like the sight of your dreams getting crushed
By the sight of a soldier that called you a friend who is screaming and crying "oh when will this end"
Now the plan’s been thrown and you are on your own

Now you think you’ve had enough?
Now you think that this is tough?
Now you’re bleeding and you're sore
Now you’re trembling to your core
Where was this feeling before?
We’ve only just begun

First you said it’s not much
Now it’s more like the sound of your bones getting crushed
By a boulder that rolled and took you and your path
And the branch you thought sturdy that snapped you in half
Now the plan’s been thrown and you are on your own
Track Name: The Connecticut River
Your stare, what it does to me
It’s nothing like anyone else’s especially recently
I hadn't seen it for years, but then it appeared
I did nothing.

I’m caught, I said I would never be caught again
I even managed to turn away and laugh before I turned back in
One stare took control of five years of nothing at all
I did nothing.

I harvest no ill will but hope you understand
That I never can consider you a friend
And now that I've been let down again
I can’t take the silence
Though while the emptiness is real I more than ever want to feel your stare again

I don’t want you in my shoes
It’s not your fault that I wouldn't let anyone near me
Nor is it your fault that I have regrets, that I have my debts
I did nothing

I just want one answer please
When it all went wrong, why did you think best to call me?
Why did you think it was best to ask me to come, to ask me to care?
I did nothing

I harvest no ill will but hope you understand
That I never can consider you a friend
And now that I've been let down again
I can’t take the silence
Though even as my feelings change the only certainly from that day is I did

Nothing to deserve this. No. Not at all.

Your stare, what it does to me
It’s nothing like anyone else’s that I’ll probably ever see
And with all of that said, I know I’d look again
Track Name: Et Alia
That time you said
I work too much
I’m too committed, and this makes me more like your brother

I’m curious
I needed space
Can’t help myself
Et al...

That time you said
It means nothing
It wasn't planned, and I deserve better, cause that’s your call?

I’m curious
I’m just the one
who did get caught
Et al...

I’m curious
I just feel trapped
I thought you’d change
Et al...

Don’t get better don’t regret it
Just take Et al away, get it?
Just ignore it just forget it
Just take Et al away, get it?

Done.
