“…10 Paces, Fire shattered genre definition by releasing an album that was essentially progressive indie-rock fused with 90's emo, math rock, and post-rock, all with a solid vocal foundation… The album's sound was incredible - it struck deeper than emo on an emotional level, carried complexity matching up to any prog-rock band and sounded sincere and honest, much like any indie folk band would try to put forth on a record…” - Muzik Dizcovery

This 4-song EP marks the first professional release of 10 Paces, Fire's history. The release blends both 90s Midwestern-Emo and pop elements into the band's progressive, Indie-Rock sound.

Track Name: You Keep a Horse in the Basement?
it’s such a great night out / I can see all the stars here / let’s sit here for hours just reminiscing / man, we’ve got some memories / I’d love to just keep them all stuck in my head / so when we see each other again / we can tell all our stories / and we will laugh like kids / don’t go now; sit back down / saddle up or settle down / I’d prefer the later / no one goes till the fire’s burnt out / we might be here awhile / The water’s so peaceful / when rhinos are swimming / “hey, it’s my birthday” / I don’t plan on sleeping / it’s days just like these that make me wish / that summer could last all year / so then we wouldn’t have to go back / to the places that we didn’t want to again / ‘cause this is home / I can’t wait to come home / today is the first day I’ve been home since Christmas / they ask, “where ya been at?” / it’s time to get down to some business
Track Name: How's That for Being Born Under a Bad Sign?
it’s been a long time since we’ve surfed south shore / being pushed by the port winds / there’s no city out here, just the starlight and the sea / but the salt stains on our footprints set us free / I’ve read about this mindset / of a liquid nothingness in my veins / between dreams and reality / I’m stuck inside the sand / it’s time to go home now and we both know it / there’s nothing for us back there / manufactured to the molecule, and crooked to a “t” / I think I’ll leave it all there; I think I’ll leave it back there / I’m swallowed in a swell / there’s nothing like losing yourself / the ocean takes over your limbs
Track Name: We're Nothing but the Nerds They Say We Are (Calculator Wrist-Watch)
set sail off of your back porch / we’re upland, highland pioneers / we find land; declare it ours / we’re living our nautical dream / flying kites in space / we’re out of string / taking back our sandcastles / that’s our kingdom / forts and tents keep you safe / from all the bad and dangerous things of the world: invisible monsters / waves lap against your bedroom door / paper planes and toy guns on the floor / feel the calm just before the storm / this is taking your backyard to the shore
Track Name: Enough About Betty Spaghetti Already
it’s midnight and it’s time to go back home / so we’ll say goodbyes to all your friends; shake hands / we are one and the same and we’re all still looking to the clouds
for someone to save us now / church bells are ringing, school boys singing / and still we try to fix ourselves / we burn the candle at both ends / ‘cause we’re always out on the streets / we go on just wasting time / dada dot dada dot dada dot dada / we are one and the same / and we’re all still looking to the clouds / for someone to save us now / church bells are ringing, school boys singing / and still we try to fix ourselves / where were you about this time last year / could’ve used you last year / but now we’re just fine / been just fine without you here / we’re just fine without you / I’m flying high / I’m up so high from the rush / I’m coming down without you
