about

This album is dedicated to the lives and memories of Joshua Schaefer and Gregory Ouellette. Two great people that I had the honor of calling friends. Either of these men would have made you smile on your worst day.

Pine Tree Riot is a direct reaction to the uncontrollable world around us. Change comes in the blink of an eye and leaves no stone un-turned. The best we can do is tighten up our laces and face forward, taking with us all that we've been through and all that we know, readily awaiting what the next turn will bring.

about

Addison Chase Boston, Massachusetts

Addison Chase cut his teeth playing his guitar and singing for friends around campfires in rural New Hampshire. They liked his music so much that he started playing at the local bar and was soon packing it wall to wall with people eager to hear the songs he wrote, dancing on tables, on the bar, and everywhere in between. ... more

Track Name: Olympic Sprinter
Keep on feeding me line
I’m just getting used to the concept of time
Give me back a couple years
I wasn’t even done with those yet and now I’m here

But of course lets not be ridiculous now
They say a grown man doesn’t complain
But god dammit how I’d love to have a drink
Like we used to when we didn’t have half our brains
god dammit how I’d love to have a drink
Like we used to when we didn’t have half our brains

I wanna go deep into the pine trees
With a bottle of something fine and my guitar
And I want all my old friends to find me
So we can dance the night away
Under those bright New England stars

Wouldn’t you love to take a plane
Back through memory lane just for a few
If I could run back in time I’d be an olympic sprinter
Chasing after you

Come on we gotta go back into the woods
Get ourselves up to no damn good and make a lot of noise
Lets build a fire the size of the tallest building in Dubai
Because boys will always be boys

Wouldn’t you love to take a plane
Back through memory lane just for a few
If I could run back in time I’d be an olympic sprinter
Chasing after you

I’ve been falling farther and farther away
From everything I’ve known and loved
I’ve become the astronaut that stepped outside for the view
And found myself drifting off

Wouldn’t you love to take a plane
Back through memory lane just for a few
If I could run back in time I’d be an olympic sprinter
Chasing after you

Keep on feeding me line
I’m just getting used to the concept of time
Give me back a couple years
I wasn’t even done with those yet and now I’m here
Track Name: Like a Boy
When she steps into a room
Even the janitor drops his broom
Oh she’s got features like you wouldn’t believe
I’d build a bridge across the sea
Just to watch her cross the street
Smile and wave to me

And if she turns her back and leaves
And I can see her heart recede
I feel as useless as a winter coat
On a San Diego beach
Oh she’s got character for days
And if she stares at you too long
You just might start to bleed

Darling don’t take away
My only source of joy
I can’t apologize for how many times
I’ve acted like a boy
But I’ve been learning a bit
From every incident
And I swear someday
I’m gonna be damn near perfect for you

So if you see her passing by
And make it past just saying “Hi”
know you’re more fortunate
than 99% of other guys
Oh you’ve got luck on your side
Just don’t go wasting her time

Stand up tall, say what you mean
If you need some pointers
Don’t come to me
There’s no doubt that I’ll come out
With something totally obscene
Oh I’m real good like that you see
I’ll give her every single reason to flee

Darling don’t take away
My only source of joy
I can’t apologize for how many times
I’ve acted like a boy
But I’ve been learning a bit
From every incident
And I swear someday
I’m gonna be damn near perfect for you
Track Name: About to Lose
I’ve been hanging around
This town for so long
My feet are stuck to the ground
I’ve been screaming out
Behind these walls and
I’m not making a sound
I need out

I’m about to lose
Control of my brain
It feels so damn good
I’m about to lose
Control of my brain
It feels so damn good

I’ve been falling down
And this time I can’t find
The strength to pick up myself
I’ve been having my doubts
About wether or not
My train is coming through town

I’m about to lose
Control of my brain
It feels so damn good
I’m about to lose
Control of my brain
It feels so damn good
Now will you leave me
When you find out
My ship is sinking now

I think my clock must be slow
No matter how hard I try
I’m always late to the show
There’s no one here that I know
And every time I try to talk
I end up in a choke

I’m about to tell someone off
I can feel it heating up in my chest
Someone’s about to get the best of me
You ain’t gonna like me like this
I insist you resist the urge
Encouraging my will to submit

I’m about to lose
Control of my brain
It feels so damn good
I’m about to lose
Control of my brain
It feels so damn good
Now will you leave me
When you find out
My ship is sinking now
Track Name: My Lady Dressed Dark
Oh my woman’s got a dark dress on
She’s afraid of the night
Even more scared of the dawn
She prays it won’t take long
to find the other side
Thunder’s been coming from
her own front lawn
She’s seen too many rights
Get turned into wrongs
She prays it won’t take long
to find the other side

And I don’t mean to be a bother miss
but can I have a little more time?
I’ve barely had but a taste of your face
and I know you’re only waiting in line
to fly

Oh, you’re making me stray from the program
Ain’t no one holding my hand now
If only I could create myself a world
Where this could all work out

Nails on a chalkboard
A chainsaw on rocks
Sandpaper to a razor-blade
Is the soundtrack to her thoughts
A million little accidents
Car crashes and ambulances
Pulverize the inside of her mind

And I don’t mean to be a bother miss
but can I have a little more time?
I’ve barely had but a taste of your face
and I know you’re only waiting in line
to fly

Oh, you’re making me stray from the program
Ain’t no one holding my hand now
If only I could create myself a world
Where this would all work out

Oh my woman’s got a dark dress on

And I don’t mean to be a bother miss,
and I know you’re only waiting in line
to fly
Track Name: Into the Fire
Someone’s going into the fire tonight
Someone’s going into the fire tonight
Help me out of this one my love
Help me out of this one my love

If I could be on my way
I swear I wouldn’t beg,
Fight, borrow or steal
I’ll go back from where I came
We could arrange some sort
of bargain or deal

I can see me slipping
off of this cliff tonight
I can see me slipping
off of this cliff tonight
Help me out of this one my love
Help me out of this one my love

Captain going down
with the ship tonight
Captain going down
with the ship tonight
Help me out of this one my love
Help me out of this one my love

If I could be on my way
I swear I wouldn’t beg,
Fight, borrow or steal
I’ll go back from where I came
We could arrange some sort
of bargain or deal

My will ain’t strong as it used to be
The nighttime’s taken ahold of me
And everybody ‘round me’s
watching just to see exactly
how bad I can hurt myself

This buildings going down
to the ground tonight
This buildings going down
to the ground tonight
Help me out of this one my love
Help me out of this one my love

Plane’s going straight
to the bottom of the lake
Plane’s going straight
to the bottom of the lake
Help me out of this one my love
Help me out of this one my love

If I could be on my way
I swear I wouldn’t beg,
Fight, borrow or steal
I’ll go back from where I came
We could arrange some sort
of bargain or deal

Bloods falling from my fist
and there’s a shattered salt shaker
on the table again
A quick flick of the wrist
A shit decision could’ve
cost me my closest friend

And in the morning when I wake
surprised and grateful that I’m not dead
I go and do it again

My will ain’t strong as it used to be
The nighttime’s taken ahold of me
And everybody ‘round me’s
watching just to see
Just to see exactly
how bad I can hurt myself

I’m going into the fire tonight
I’m going into the fire tonight
Can’t help me out of this one
No can’t me out of this

I wish I could’ve listened
but its too late now
I’m going head first
Into a night on the town
Track Name: Shake Me Awake
It’s been looking not so good
for a while now
Been taking all my nights
with a glass of the good stuff
Oh my god
When did this ride come to an end?

I’ve been on a balance beam
On a day to day basis
Skin’s got no color
All my fruits gone tasteless
Oh my love
When did we stop being good friends?

Can’t we go back to that
moment in time
You looked at me last
With your loving eyes
and I said you looked beautiful
You said you were glad you’re mine
Glad you’re mine

Now its been a chore
Not to be downright bored
with my work, Hell
staying up has been difficult enough
People talk, I don’t listen
Not on purpose at least
Im pretty sure that inside
I might still be asleep

And Ive been dodging
every bullet I can
I’m still coming up
looking like a half eaten man
Where did I go wrong?
Let me string you along
Somebody shake me awake
When the bad weathers gone
Track Name: On the Loose
Whoa oh oh
Honey don’t stop now
I said Whoa oh oh
Sugar darlin’ don’t slow down

We got a lot to learn about each other
And we ain’t got much time
We got a lot to learn about each other
I won’t wast yours don’t waste mine

Sugar darlin’ theres a killer
on the loose tonight
and he’s been taking lovers lives
underneath the moonlight
Let me be your bodyguard
I’ll keep you safe until the sun comes up

Oh honey darlin’ theres a killer
on the loose tonight and he’s been
taking off with any pretty thing that he likes
Stay by my side I’ll keep you
safe until you see the light

There ain’t nothing for us out there
to hell with the rest of the world
Let em’ tangle up their own hair
We got our love to get uncurled

Whatever situation is blazing outside’s
got nothing to do with us
and as far as I’m concerned
all that matters tonight
is that we take advantage of our lust

Sugar darlin’ theres a killer
on the loose tonight
and he’s been taking lovers lives
underneath the moonlight
Let me be your bodyguard
I’ll keep you safe until the sun comes up

Oh honey darlin’ theres a killer
on the loose tonight and he’s been
taking off with any pretty thing that he likes
Stay by my side I’ll keep you
safe until you see the light

Whoa oh oh
Pull down the shades
and lock the door
Whoa oh oh
Tell me everything
then tell me more

We got a lot to learn about each other
And we ain’t got much time
We got a lot to learn about each other
I won’t wast yours don’t waste mine

Sugar darlin’ theres a killer
on the loose tonight
and he’s been taking lovers lives
underneath the moonlight
Let me be your bodyguard
I’ll keep you safe until the sun comes up

Oh honey darlin’ theres a killer
on the loose tonight and they’ve been saying
that he’s got the same face as mine
Stay by my side I’ll keep you
safe until you see the light
Track Name: Monster in Me
Well if its all the same
I think I’d like to pass the blame
I wanna bottle it down
Why you wanna figure me out?

Come on lets turn it back around
This road only goes one way
and its straight out of town
Don’t go giving up now
How am I supposed to figure it out?

You know, I’ve always had a problem
with seeing things directly in front of me
I’m pretty sure that I’m going blind
but that don’t give me no reason
no that don’t give me no reason
to tear you apart like that

Well if it’s all the same
I think I’d like to
pick up the check and leave
we’ve done enough damage here
to leave these people busy for weeks

What do you say we sneak out tonight?
We’ll meet up at the park
at a quarter to midnight
Play king and queen of the world
for a very short moment in time

You know, I’ve always had a problem
with seeing things directly in front of me
I’m pretty sure that I’m going blind
but that don’t give me no reason
no that don’t give me no reason
to tear you apart like that

So if it’s all the same
I think I’ve had
enough of this game
Is there a button somewhere
I can push
to start it all over again?
Track Name: Always
I don’t care wether you’re a
corner store creep
or you’re a petty thief
Is your luck hanging out on the line?
Let it be known
you can find always find hope
in the words that I write.

And if you find yourself
down in the dirt
you can’t find any worth
In the space right behind your eyes
Let the record show
you can take yourself home
in the words that I write

Because I know
you’ve got a heavy load already
you’ve been doing all you can
to keep your hand steady
and the last thing that I want to do
is break you down even more

It’s such a waste of time
waiting in the long lines
just to hear
the wrong lines over again
Its just a waste of time
taking anything besides
exactly what you want
to take away from life

So if you find yourself
sinking, you can’t stay afloat
and the boat you rode in on
blown way off coast
let these few and simple chords
guide you back to the shore

Because I know
you’ve got a heavy load already
you’ve been doing all you can
to keep your hand steady
and the last thing that I want to do
is break you down even more

All of us should meet up
and have one hell of a party
All of us should meet up
and have one hell of a damn good time

Because I know
you’ve got a heavy load already
you’ve been doing all you can
to keep your hand steady
and the last thing that I want to do
is break you down even more
Track Name: Tenfold to You
We danced on broken glass
Skipped hand in hand on the overpass
We shot into the distance
Kissing every single star along the way

Now what am I to say?
You're about to toss me anyway
But let me state my case
I know to you I'm only pocket change
Trust me I've got grace
And I think that you might see it if you stay

Oh girl I know I'm being rude
I'm naturally a fool
Everything I said back there,
I never meant to aim at you
Just keep me for one more night
I swear I'll make it up ten-fold to you

Ten-fold to you.
