2 niggas are blowing me up| (holla atcha boy)

[17 May 2004|12:08pm]
i have no idea how to feel about any of this. i loved him, then despised him for his actions, and now, i have no honest clue how to feel. it's amazing how things have these tendencies to change so quickly. anyways, this is the only thing i can think to say to him:


you fucked up. i lost all faith in you, someone i would've trusted with my life. i wasn't as close to you as the other 2 members in your 3-person crew, but i cared about you deeply. though, i may have said some awful things about you (most of which i meant), i still wanted you to get the help you needed. when i really think about it, i still can't believe it. so, i'll leave it at this:

happy birthday, joseph. hopefully, you're off somewhere finding some peace.






to everyone who's been truly hurt by this, i apologize. most of you have my number, and if you need anything, call it.

love, jake





p.s. fuck livejournal, i'm done with it.
(holla atcha boy)

don't call it a comeback [25 Mar 2004|01:45pm]
yeah, an update.

so, there's alot going on right now.

first off, the band did NOT break up. no matter how bad some of you might have wanted that to happen. we did, however, part ways with mr. jon evans, who i'm sure will move on to do more suitable things. also, jake vest has decided to call it quits after the show this saturday. PUSSSSSYYYYYYY. haha, i'm joking, i love jake, and i'm sure he'll find happiness elsewhere.

secondly, eddie is joining the fucking army. holy crap. he leaves in june. what the hell? i mean, to alot of people, this means "wow, it's gonna be weird, that guy goes to alot of shows" or "wow, i talk to him online". however, to people like brad, allie, alex, ashley, and myself, it's totally different. i'm losing one of my most valued friends to the military. this is the second time this has happened to me. i'm proud of eddie, though, for making a decision and sticking with it. if he wants to go be an army of one, or whatever those commercials say, he can go for it, and i'll support him 100 percent. i love that kid to death. he might be the ONLY other person who would wake up in the back of a car singing along to "siberian kiss". good fucking times.

lastly, i have no job. i dig it. sleeping is the best thing. ever. i wrote some new lyrics last night for the new HLTH material. creepy. seriously.



ps. go see eternal sunshine right now, or else i'll break every bone in your body.

not worth it to lose a friend.

you believe one thing, i believe another. leave it there. you've got the masses on your side. you win.

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


for like the last ten days, that's all that's been going on in my fucking head. seriously. sometimes, you just don't win. no matter how bad you want to.

2 niggas are blowing me up| (holla atcha boy)

[17 Feb 2004|05:28pm]
a challenge (proposition) for you all:


help (make) me quit smoking.
8 niggas are blowing me up| (holla atcha boy)

heh [30 Jan 2004|04:28am]
are you ever just like "haha, what the fuck?" when you think about life and stuff? i'm in one of those moods at 4:30 in the morning on a friday. weird, eh?


what a strange little day thursday turned out to be. wow. summary:

woke up at 11
started watching sister act 2
karen came over at 3 or so
she leaves soon after, having just dropped by to give me a stuffed animal because i've been feeling super shitty lately
went to wolfchase with andrew to pass out HLTH promo flyers
met some of the foreal dumbest fucking girls in existance at the wolfchase ("do ya'll sound like 3 doors down?" me: "ummm, fuck yes we do! cometothefuckinshow")
left wolfchase, headed to band practice, not much accomplished, just tightening for the recording
after practice the craziness ensued. jesus fuck.
posijon, andrew, and i head out to east jesus to hang out at wade's house.
long story short, lots of liquor was consumed by 3 of the 4 of us. wade is fucking HAMMERED, and he's the most hillarious drunk EVER.

wow, yeah. what a day/night/early next morning.

i've been thinking about shit too much lately (i.e., wanting the band to work out SO BADLY, girls, BAND, girls, BAND, blah fucking blah)


i'm sacking it. i need my sleep. for TONIGHT IS MY MOTHERFUCKING BOY ALEX'S BIRTHDAY EXTRAVAGANZA!!! YAY FOR MY PARTNER IN CRIME!!! YAY!!! (i'm sleeeeeep deprived)

also, i was invited to another party which i'm gonna try to hit, too.

also (pt 2), read this and comment on it:



"fire at sea level"

you were standing on the edge of the dock
watching and waving as i moved farther away
away
away from everything i've come to know as reality
and, loosening the noose around my neck

we were almost amazing in that moment waiting for sunrise
preparing for the blazing sun
it must've been hard for you to say goodbye
knowing that you'd die without me, and that i'd fight to survive

i will rise
rise above the things that i've come to know
the places i've had to call home

i'd rather sink to the bottom than see these city limits again

3 niggas are blowing me up| (holla atcha boy)

i hate this thing. [24 Jan 2004|02:30am]
i feel insignificant, smaller than dust. this is a space that band shit, friendship, girls, relationships, sex, cigarettes, etc.. can't fill.

i've fucked up so much in like the last two years, it's ridiculous. it's been going on longer than that, but i can only really remember the last two years clearly.

i don't like being percieved as a dickhead or an asshole, but it happens anyways. i don't think i am all the time, but still. i dunno. i'm probably just completely fucking wrong about anything and everything. i probably always have been. i'm almost sure.

i'm sorry to my band, my friends, my family, and all that shit. i really am. if i've ever told you that i love you, then i do.


i just want to sleep forever and ever and ever. peace. just peace. that's what i need. it's not about shows, or band stuff. if you don't like our music, that's cool, i blow shit like that out of proportion. sorry. it's just about being sad. alot of the time.

night
5 niggas are blowing me up| (holla atcha boy)

an update, and it's short and sweet. [23 Jan 2004|10:52am]
life sucks.

everything great happens to everyone around me. that's the worst feeling, ya know?


fuck, maybe things will change one day. who knows?
2 niggas are blowing me up| (holla atcha boy)

new hotness... [08 Nov 2003|11:17am]
ATTENTION:

THERE IS A SHOW AT THE NEW DAISY TONIGHT. HOPES LIKE THE HINDENBURG IS PLAYING. IF YOU ARE NOT THERE TONIGHT, THEN YOU ARE OFFICIALLY MY LEAST FAVORITE PERSON OF ALL TIME. THANK YOU.

also, we're debuting a new song tonight: "i'll die or die trying"

"everyone i know
we're all dying here
and our smiles cover all wounds
our mouths speak words that only we can hear
at least we're not alone in this

our hearts are the anchors that weigh our bodies down

tell-tale stories of triggers pulled
and, lives with lost meanings and shells with no feelings
you've got me down and beaten on the side of the river bed

shed your skin, shed you heart
suit up in the kevlar instead

because this isn't a heart for a heart
it's an eye for an eye

you wont need the things you brought to earth
all you'll require is a way to put distance between you and i

no matter how sacred the cow
no matter how golden the calf
we'll send it to slaughter"






PS. i wrote something new last night, and it's not exactly my style, so i'd kinda like feedback, if you read this journal. it's currently untitled, but i'm thinking maybe "stalking the skyline"


do you remember when the sky was an inch away?
an inch away from our fingertips
spending every night relishing in what makes us alive
and when morning came, we'd given up on rest
laying in the grass, closer to death then ever before
but, still with our hands to the sky

you'd told me once that sleep was relative to death
and, the longer we rested our eyes
the more we'd miss of the world
and, with my words, i wrapped the noose around my neck:
"let it fly by, i'd rather dream than live to die"

while the clock blinks in uniform fashion
this outdated calender holds 365 reasons to relive the past

i know now, what i didn't then
i've come to accept what i swore i never would

these pillows are headstones
this bed is now a coffin
and, as my eyes start to close
i remember a final word that you spoke:

"sleep is death in disguise
never close your eyes"
9 niggas are blowing me up| (holla atcha boy)

"but you, you were my favorite..." [25 Sep 2003|02:00am]
[ mood | sleepy ]

hey there, ljers! what the fuck is up?!

anyways, our first show is tommorow night at the van. and then again, hopes like the hindenburg, and haste the day (fuck yes). i'm extremely excited. i think we're tight, and i think we're ready. this band is my godsend. my way of venting all of my fucking frustrations at the world.

anways, be there or be square. also, read this and tell me what you think(new hindenburg stuff):



"feet dangling on the sides of high horses"

let us play the game
you know the one, where we name each other's faults
but, it will only get us so far
while standing in front of a brick wall
you persist while i resist
and i can't explain the turns and twists
that have brought us to this

chances are you never even looked in this direction
and, your eyes, the ones that loom above me while i sleep
have been rolling so often that they're turning red
but, aren't we all high and mighty
when we drop the sword and use the pen?

this is shameless
our words could never contend with your breath
so, we plug away consistently
changing our patterns until we're content with our frequency

mention the name once, and find yourself on the floor
twice and you'll realize those words are true
three times and the joke's on me, but the victim is you

4 niggas are blowing me up| (holla atcha boy)

back from the dead. [21 Sep 2003|06:30pm]
so, nothing much going on. just hanging out with the usual folks.

just wanted to mention:

THURSDAY: hopes like the hindenburg, and then again, haste the day @ the caravan. 8 pm.

FRIDAY: and then again, in case of fire, hopes like the hindenburg, my surrender @ the caravan. 8 pm. (ps, that's the lineup as i heard it from brad.)




GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO
1 nigga are blowing me up| (holla atcha boy)

hello there... [13 Sep 2003|07:14pm]
[ mood | groggy ]

so, an uninteresting night, for the most part.

first off, i go get eddie at around like, i dunno, 4, or something. anyways, i got there and we sat around watching some X-TREME SKATING!!! thing. eddie are definitely alike in a lot of ways, but the biggest reason is that we both like to watch people fuck up and fall on their faces.

so, after that we met up with cliff and we three headed out to cooper young festival, which was mediocre at best. saw carly, and some other girls who's names i've already forgotten. sorry gals. if you're name doesn't start with a "j" and end with a "esca", i have a hard time remembering it. anyways, that pretty much sucked.

so, after that, we went to andrew's to meet up with him and brittnee. from there, we went to get austin, and then we decided to go to west friggin memphis for a party at THREAT and matt's. that was totally uneventful, because i don't drink, so i just sat in matt's room and austin and i wrote songs about brittnee. which was fun. kinda. i really love THREAT, matt, lauren, and jake part duex. they're all great folks.

after that, it was all just a blur. i dropped them all off, and headed for home. nothing spectacular has happened since. i'm actually kinda tired, so i may go to bed now. not sure. i'll probably stay up until 5:30 again.

on another note, i totally miss jesca. like crazy. and, i KNOW she's out having fun and doing stuff. that sucks. boooooo.



<3 jake

4 niggas are blowing me up| (holla atcha boy)

motherfucker... [08 Sep 2003|12:35am]
[ mood | accomplished ]

this band is going to slay. i repeat. this band is going to slay.

and, memphis, i'm DEAD FUCKING SERIOUS. get ready. or not. we may suck. but, that's HIGHLY doubtful.

four songs totally down right now. we'll have six by the end of the week maybe. that's exciting.


the four songs are:


"she'll sharpen knives"
"heart attacks and hardcore dancing"
"russian roullete, racing trains, and other extremely cool ways to die"
"a cornerstone for a building that will never be errected"


hopefully, we'll be able to play with haste the day and a.t.a. on the 25th. that'd amazingly awesome.

20 niggas are blowing me up| (holla atcha boy)

"brilliantly drawn maps of places we'll never visit together"... [05 Sep 2003|10:25am]
[ mood | artistic ]

new hopes like...lyrics:


so many times you've played a game against god
and, nothing has affected our sense of direction
but, for now, you'll know of nothing
and, you'll believe in everything
because at gunpoint you can only feel steel
and, on your knees you can only taste blood

so, bury your fucking head
we'll see how far that gets you in life
i'll be the one with the perfect aim
you'll be the one alone with only a knife

and, i can't wait
to see your smile end on a down-note
to see your teeth on the ground in a pool next to your face
i want to be the one to fucking end you
my face will be the last and most beautiful thing you'll ever see
do you feel like you shouldn't have trusted me, now?
because that'd be the first thing you got right in a long while

take my word for granted, girl
i'm the angel and you're the sinner
i'm the ender and you're the beginner
so, prepare for this apology to be the last one you ever make
because i know for a fact that you give better than you can take

(holla atcha boy)

yo, yo, yo, yo... [02 Sep 2003|06:37am]
[ mood | determined ]

so, yeah. interesting past few days.

the whole my surrender thing, that i'm sure everyone's heard about by now, went down, and that was not good. AT ALL. we were all just trying to dance and have fun, and apparently, that was TOO much for the daisy crowd/security to handle. fuck the shit-talkers that call the ourmemphis (901) kids a "gang". that's bullshit. we're just there to dance and have fun. maybe certain singers in certain bad "the used rip-off" bands should keep their mouths closed until they have something of substance to say. case closed. fuck it.

also, the little rock 3 (amanda, adam, and tiffany) came into town on sunday. awesome. they're all such great people, i really am glad that they're moving to memphis. they stayed here on sunday and monday night, and they actually just left about 30 minutes ago. here's hoping that they come back soon.

other than that, there's nothing going on. i really need a job, and i really need a certain person to realize how much i really do care. wow, that's alot of "really's". damn. i must be serious.

anyways, i'll holler at you kids.

ummm, not much to update with.

we had band practice tonight. NEW MEMBER!!! ben abney from while i breathe wants to play bass with us. which rocks seeing as we've already got a bass rig and amp. this is going to be amazing. the bands new name is.... hopes like the hindenburg. rock.

the new song "she'll sharpen knives" is awesome. austin, alex, andrew, and now ben, i love you. we're going to slay.

also, look out for fuckin' luna sol terra. eddie, andrew, austin, and myself playing some mellow, emo-y, pretty, ballad-y stuff. first song is already recorded, so im me if you want me to send it to you. it's titled "the battle between strength and distance", and it's awesome.

anyways, not much else to say...things are a-changin' for me, so stick by my side, and i'll be your friend forever. seriously. i love everyone that reads this journal. with all my heart.


last call..k-k-kill it.... (every time i die owns my soul)
