This album was written in a very dark time in my life & it was recorded as testament to show that every struggle in life can be overcome. There is hope, for me it was in God. Whether your hope is God or not, we want you to know that there is hope. That is what this EP stands for. Hope.
- Johnny

A Changing Tide would like to thank:
All the bands we’ve played with, All of our friends who constantly support us. Especially Chris, Taylor, Jon D, Cordy, Kenny & Scott.
Sam Pura & Ryan “Rings” Ellery at The Panda Studios, none of this would have been possible without them taking us on blindly or without Cait helping us get booked.
We want to thank our families as well, for those that supported us & for those that opposed us. All of you fueled us & helped us to make this EP. From the bottom of our hearts, Thank You.
Lastly but not least, we want to thank God for getting us this far & keeping us going.

Produced, Mixed & Mastered by Ryan “Rings” Ellery @ The Panda Studios in Fremont, CA.

Track Name: Redwood
Born a pillar,
Made a tower.
Consistently a lifeless hopeless mess inside,
But somehow, by someway I find myself stronger.

Proven ancient,
My roots have grown deep,
I am what holds the weight of a thousand,
But, my soul, I can't seem to keep.
Why can I help them all & yet I can't seem to help myself,
Oh Lord, I'm stuck in this place, my mind is losing touch & fading away.
Farther and Farther, Day by Day

Reach farther & pull me from where I lay,
Remove the pests from my veins & sever stems
Oh God, Relieve the branches & Mend them before they break

Uproot, Strengthen & Deviate

My carved & gnarled branches,
What I am, They show
Roots hold me down,
Years make rings to prove that I still grow

I still hold ~ I won’t let go
Track Name: Autumn
Sitting here watching leaves fall,
Every one a picture of it all,
A reimagining of the love we couldn't
It the death of fall, or maybe just the beginning of it all.
I found my life sitting & praying for compassion,
I wasn't made to be what I am,
But my roots set in & gave a new plan.

~Every branch snapped under the weight~
Track Name: FreeRight.
Everywhere we go is,
Everything it’s all we know.

Open your eyes,
Every day
You have moved me
In my own way

This is a mindset of ill-timed destruction.
Keep your head up & keep moving forward.

Open your eyes,
It's so clear you're here tonight.
I know you hear me cry,

“Burn up the sky.”

Can you hear me,
Moving forward,
We're still breathing
Going farther.
I still need you more than I will ever know
Track Name: The Road Less Traveled, But Traveled Nonetheless
How does it come to this,
Start off right & get turned around,
Straight & narrow till we hit the ground.
If I could find a way to stop, I would
I promise..

"Is there problem with my heart?"
I fell in love with a mistake,
I don't know what it will take to change.
To redo, mend the break.
"Oh God, I beg you to move me"
I'll cry out in the rain.

"Please take me back to the start,
Back when I held my head high,
Back when my life wasn't torn apart."

Will we follow the light,
or burn out on our own,
Search for the Son or freeze in the night?
Sell yourself for something you'll never know,
or burn out bright & keep your soul?

I’ve never known a pain like this.
It all changed so much, The sadness consumes.
I wish I stayed who they all miss, Nothing left, all adrift.

I can tell you how I came to this.
Track Name: Leaps & Bounds
Whatever it takes to stay on top,
To show I have control of what I've done,
I've come to far to think that I could stop,
So whether I've hit the mark or come undone I’ll show from the start my race is run.

I'm finding now where I need to be,
Leaps & bounds above the rest.
I've been to the bottom & made my way back,
Done being cast out & feeling sorry,
I know my place.
Leaps & bounds from where I've been.
"Oh God, I know you have moved me"
I've been down this road so many times,
I know what's gone on inside my heart.
All My problems, all my pain, every tear along the way,
All to mold me into who I am, I was made to be your pillar all from the start.
I don't know where we'll go or where I'll be when this is done,
But I can show you where it is from where it is we've come,

Too many times we've been thrown away,
Tossed & forgotten until the rainy days,

Leaps & bounds above the rest,
Leaps & bounds from where we've been,
It never mattered where we were, only where we'd go.
