about

Wooden Bones EP is the vibrant debut of singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Ayden Graham. Set against the falling leaves of autumn, these songs contemplate the yearning for wholeness and belonging in a world full of false pretenses. From the opening jaunt of Jack Rabbit to the iconic title track Wooden Bones, the EP album is an inspired milestone from a passionate artist on the rise.

Track Name: Jack Rabbit
Hey, no, I don’t know where I come from
Go, this is not where I belong
So, perhaps I’ll get a better skin
No, you gotta love the one you got
you gotta love the one you’re in

This is the reason why I always lock, walk
the reason why I never talk, it’s off
it throws my balance to the wind
it makes my luminescence dim

and if I don’t follow the sway of life
I’ll be tossed, bossed, crossed, closed, confused and used
I’ll be shot, bought, wrought, forgot and end up bruised
I’ll be lost

Jack Rabbit
Jack Rabbit

Now I watch the trees
swaying in their open place
taste the sweeter air inside my day
lay out in the meadows empty space
I learn to take in all those rays
I learn to take in all those rays

but if I don’t follow the sway of life
I’ll be tossed, bossed, crossed, closed, confused and used
I’ll be shot, bought, wrought, forgot and end up bruised
I’ll be lost, I’ll be lost, I’ll be lost

Track Name: Craving
Gold is the color of your eyes
And you let them do all of the talkin’
I am swept, you undo my every move
As I try, try my hardest to prove

That you are the one that I dream of
and you are the sin that I crave, love
I pull my innocence out of my chest
And hope to god I don’t die trying

Those lips they betray their owner
Can’t decide nor abide by the rules
Curving up in a sly seductive way
With crimson beaded veins that lie beneath the prey

You are putting light on affections
Overwhelmed, I stumble in the flash
I’ll take you, I’ll take you, if you want
Do you really want me to?
I’ll take you if you want

Cos you are the one that I dream of
and you are the sin that I crave, love
I pull my innocence out of my chest
And hope to god I don’t die trying

And if fear of the past holds you down
Believe me, I’ve been there too
Just put your cool hands on my face
And I promise it won’t be a waste

Cos you are the one that I dream of
and you are the sin that I crave, love
I pull my innocence out of my chest
And hope to god I don’t die trying
Track Name: Gravity
Do you remember the first rain
when things were still the same?
Haven’t had much time
to regain and climb again

And I don’t know what’s next
I don’t know what’s next

Gravity dreams are coalescing
darlin’ it seems so long, unending
gravity weaves the tangled strings
and I don’t know what’s next

So slip beneath the covers
slip beneath to dream
so slip beneath, so slip beneath
let the rain sing you to sleep

I don’t know what’s next
I don’t know what’s next
I don’t know what’s next
I don’t know what’s next
Track Name: Wooden Bones
Well the wood on the branches is rotten
and our love can’t hold it anymore
so we fake all the pauses
as we sit on the moss on the floor

Don’t let the wooden bones crack
Don’t let them tear apart
Don’t let the leaves fall
Cos we’ll be bare
we’ll be bare,
we’ll be bare,
we’ll be bare
bare


If we set our aim for the head
we’ll embed every bullet in the wall
and if you decide to run
ahh hell you better pay the toll

Don’t let the wooden bones crack
Don’t let them tear apart
Don’t let the leaves fall
Cos we’ll be bare
we’ll be bare,
we’ll be bare,
we’ll be bare
bare

bare, bare, bare...
Track Name: Social Butterfly
What can I say?
when you’re out without me
riding alone
riding with friends
whose bed are you in
well I guess it depends

the hours I wait up at night
don’t really matter to you
why should I bother to put up a fight
cos it’s making me the fool

I don’t know how to say goodbye
I don’t know what is truth or lies

If you come back to me
I promise you’ll see my bright side
I’ll laugh for you, I’ll smile for you
Oh I’ll make it right

You’re on the other side
down and under
you went right out of my sight
you are the day and I am the night
now all I do is sit and I stew
and keep digging, I keep digging this hole

I don’t know how to say goodbye
I don’t know what is truth or lies
you came and went and left me bent
it’s all a game with a different name
but hey, it’s all the same to me
it must have been your eyes
my social butterfly
