about

No One But Me is the third EP released by No Plateau. The lyrics and progressions were written by drummer Christian Staton, and feature John Staton on guitar and Sean Murphy on bass. While this ep differs stylistically from the previous 2, the musicianship and style of No Plateau remains at the heart of the recordings.


"These 5 songs are very personal to me. I wrote them out of necessity, while battling depression, depleted serotonin levels, and hopelessness. I met an older man while substitute teaching years ago who told me: when it's all on the line, your heart beats for no one but you. You have your loved ones and friends for support but, when it's sink or swim, your heart only beats for you. I took that to heart and understood what I needed to do to get through this difficult time. I learned that my heart was beating for No One But Me."
-Christian

Track Name: Leave The Chemicals (Behind Us)
What do you need to live?
What will make you content?
Necessities met
Love to give
Someone to share your happiness with
My body aches
Got plenty of sleep
Yet can’t stay awake
Self Destruction
My normal routine
Bottle in hand
Knives through veins

There’s a battle in my head
It’s me versus the meds
It’s just a drug yea
It’s just a drug yea
So leave the chemicals behind us
Our sickness is marketed to us
Pull the plug yea
Just pull the plug yea

Up the dosage
Up the usage
The highs
The lows
So fucking used to it
A roller coater ride
That’s never ending
I’m at the peak
And then I’m descending
Track Name: Nocturne in Dm
This is for no one but me
It’s not for sale
It’s to set me free
Because I need something so desperately
Take away the pain momentarily

Now I’m too tired
to think or speak
Might as well be dead
Is there any life left?


Come on come on come on
And let’s go
Legs start walking
Eyes pried open
Is my heart pounding

I’ve learned to be alone
It’s fine with me
I prefer it now
Than being with company
This might some sort of disease
It affects my well being
Do you see?
I hope it doesn’t end my life too early
Track Name: Disconnect
I’m not connected to anything
Not the sky, the earth, or the moon
I’m not connected to anything
Someone
Please anyone
Feel me tonight
And help me burry this gloom

So won’t you fall
Down down down
With me tonight
And drink yourself sober
Through your lonely headlights
She’s too proud proud proud
for your broken heart
So scream loud loud loud
through your slurring mouth
Track Name: Miles of Separation
Being away from you
No idea what to do
Inside I don’t feel right
I’m not nauseous
It’s because
You’re no where in sight

I’m sliding through this morgue
Having missed an opportunity
I could’ve been drugged by your sound waves
Happily beside you in purgatory
One game
Two hearts
Are we old enough to know what we want
I would want your body
Not your spirit
Roll the dice
And remain pessimistic

Ohh miles of separation
What happens after emancipation
A love story
Or are we just horny?
Will we wake in each others hearts
Or be like the sun each day and fade out?
Track Name: No One But Me
I need to hear
I need to see
I need to sculpt
My senses are me
If I could not hear
If I could not see
My heart still beats
For no one but me

This band is what we need
To hear our dead souls sing
My heart still beats
For no one but me

Have you heard?
Have you heard your song?
It plays for only
Yet everyone sings along

I bought these words
Free from government
Charged from my heart
It was charged from
My fucking heart
