about

Figure it Out is the first studio release from Knathan Ryan & the Silent Ks. If you’re at all familiar with Ryan’s previous work, the only similarity you’ll hear in this EP is his voice. The Silent Ks (Fred V, Cooper Smith and Singer) sound as if they’ve been performing with Ryan forever. And while Ryan has performed in and around the Seattle music scene for at least a decade, his work with the Silent Ks brings his master songwriting skills to a higher stage.

Straightforward rock and deeply dark lyrics — this is the intersection where great rock & roll songs are made.

This EP — five great songs — is a leap forward for the Seattle music scene. It’s about time some hard rockin’ twang got back in this city. These songs — these stories — will keep you coming back for more. Thankfully, this is only the beginning for Knathan Ryan & the Silent Ks.

Track Name: Hard Fall
certain precaution should be taken,
in this law you're so bent on breaking
don't you look around, don't you act paranoid
it's eye contact you're gonna wanna try to avoid

that's a long ways down and that's a hard fall
that's a hard fall...after all

certain precaution should be taken, if it's another lover's love that you're making
don't you have a conscience or a heart- they must be blown apart
remember, one drop of water could splinter the wood- it could

certain precaution should be taken, in this life we're all just faking
don't make too much don't don't draw attention to yourself
as long as you don't fail you win- it's not sin

your love is an unlikely, still.
Track Name: Everything Maybe
i was thinking long and hard- late new year's eve
just exactly what it was you'd like me to believe
and just like the wind it always blows
in whatever direction, so your love goes

everything's always maybe with you

now reflecting on your parts- did you know your lines?
and memorize them by heart, or you just pantomime
just like too much rain, it overflows
flooding everything, so your love goes

so should i finish what i start, and just carry on
i'd rather have you cold, i'd rather have you hot- than just staying lukewarm
just like the sun will scorch if you get too close
burning everything up, so your love goes
Track Name: The Ballad of Susana y Octavio
well, oh susana- don't you cry for me
i'm not the one living with pain, abuse and misery
why won't you just let it? when are you ever gonna get it?
o susana you won't regret it- won't you come away with me

well there's a train leaving for Juarez- later tonight
i just need to get a little bit more cash- and we can be there by first light
i'd do anything for you, o susana I adore you, all heaven implores you
won't you come away with me, my love

take that ride, into the setting sun

don't lose your nerve- even if you feel that car starting to swerve, every one of us is going to get what we deserve

oh susana it's time to get going- you're belly is starting to showing
and now my brother's suspicion, is like a tornado blowing
i'd do anything for you, o susana I adore you, all heaven implores you
won't you come away with me, my love

take that ride, into the setting sun
ain't that right, your love is a setting sun
Track Name: Take
let's stop the kidding around- all joking aside, it's starting to grow old
when i think about it seriously- the lies i want to believe are the ones I have told

so take- take what you want
i didn't have a right to it anyway
take- take what you want
take it all and lay it to waste

sometimes, it's good to bleed- it's reassuring to know that the heart still works
your love is a drug that i need- i just wish the last hit was as good as the first

it's hard to love me on a day-to-day, I surprise myself with the stupid things i say
i believe, help me in my unbelief- Lord won't you hear my this one time i pray
Track Name: Wherein The Wolf
sometimes i get this feeling- like i'm the only one around
and when my mind starts to reeling- i push the voices into the background

figure it out, figure it out- a way to keep you from leaving
wrestle with doubt, wrestle with doubt- but i keep on believing
but i don't know why, or what i'm suppose to do

thank you for just listening, sorry for the gag and the tie to the chair
but you're such a good listener
followed you home from work- for the past month, or maybe it was two
to see if this love was true

figure it out, figure it out- a way to keep you from leaving
wrestle with doubt, wrestle with doubt- but i keep on believing
but i don't know why, or what i'm suppose to do

and now it's time for the cleansing- time to purge all our sin, and what we have been
and purify with fire- with matches and gasoline
finally we will be free

i figured it out, i figured it out- a way to keep you from leaving
i wrestled with doubt, i wrestled with doubt- but i kept on believing
and now, now i know what I'm supposed to do, what i'm born to do, what I'm suppose to do
