about

The Rush, Rush, Rush EP began as a fun experimental departure from Dan's usual pop-punk style, but soon became a passionate new musical direction. Utilizing various soft-synths, as well as traditional analog recording methods, Dan adopted a sand box mentality and began creating large sonic sounds, and rich, often overloaded mixes. The Rush, Rush, Rush EP represents the first batch of songs in a fresh, modern blend of Inide rock and synthpop. From Prince George, British Columbia, Dan McIntyre is a genre-spanning songwriter, producer and performer. He is a self-published author, and makes a living by designing kitchens. Dan has been playing guitar since he was 4 years old, and writing and recording for over well over a decade. He is always working on several projects at once and keeping his brain nice and busy by constantly challenging it with new creative ventures. He loves his family, friends, and is firmly rooted in his beliefs and general philosophy about life. Dan currently resides in Prince George, British Columbia, Canada where he is helping his folks cope with age, and working on his writing, music and design career.

Track Name: Younger
We've gotta talk.
Back when you were a boy
Life was like a brand new toy
Every day was new, and it was up to you
To decide what to do

But now the days are long,
And some you wonder where they've gone
Did you get that job? And get that house?
Are those the things you want?

There's a fire in your soul
You've got some talent and some goals
Do you remember them?

Back when you were younger
You were making numbers
You would call down thunder
You were like the rhythm of a heartbeat
Pounding,
Earth beneath you shaking
You were such a mystery
You were like the rhythm of a heartbeat

So shake it off
And live the life you're dealt
It's your skin, nobody else
You need to sing for just yourself
And freedom will ring
Just as the Angels do sing
You know, they'll lift your eyes, lift your eyes, lift your eyes


Beat beat beat

Don't kid yourself
Track Name: Rush, Rush, Rush
Girl, you're the one
I've got all the proof I need and more
Hot like the summer sun
I've gotta pick my jaw up off the floor

What did you plan to do?
You're running through my brain, you're running through my veins
What did you plan to do?
I need your kiss right now, come on let's shout it out!

You're such a chemical, you're such a chemical, you're such a chemical
Rush, rush, rush, rush

Girl you're the one
Don't wanna change a thing about who you are
I'm blown away
Let's see the world and live it up like stars

Buried deep in your arms, I'll say,
This is the place I'll stay
Forever
Track Name: Electricity
Your electricity can go away now
It's not a mystery, a ball and chain now
Wash cold the history with heavy rain, yeah

For what it means to me, I need to change now
"Never again" I'll say, but there's a wolf out!
The blood runs from my face, pale like a ghost, yeah

Within sleepless nights, dreams become dynamite
And like truth or dare, I scramble for my life
This is murder. This is murder. This is murder.

Your expectations now, they come from something else
Your explanations how, they come from someone else
Cuz you had to go, you had to go

Your electricity can go away now
I need some medicine and better days now
Life is a tapestry, not black and white, yeah

For what this means to me, I need to change now
"Never again" I'll say, but there's a wolf out!
The blood runs from my face, pale like a ghost, yeah

You had to go
Track Name: Love for the B.C. Coast
The Western Coast is calling my name
And I need to see the ocean, feel the rain
For reasons that I can barely explain
It's become my home away from home again
I love the art, the mood and the scene
It instills new hope in all of my dreams
My car seats five, and I'm leaving at three
I'm just saying come find out just what I mean

It'll push, it'll pull, it'll drive you mad!
Yeah

Ohhhhhh,
We've got to let it roll
Ohhhhhh,
Down to the B.C. Coast

The towns whip by, as we're killing the clock
All my troubles back home, I flat-out forgot
It drives me mad that nothing here compets
As I scan the shopfronts on these empty streets


It can make you,
It can break you
But nothing's ever quite the same


No, nothing's ever quite the same
Track Name: Three Words
Won't you come near, and let your hair grow down?
I get tongue tied when you're not around
I watch the sunrise back in my old home town
I clutch the paper where you wrote it down

Three words are shaking me to my soul
Cuz you said them daily, now [still] I'm on my own
[And] I blame myself in the latter hours of the day
So you can be on your way, you can be on your way

So what's it all mean, if it never lasts?
Get talking mistakes, and watch it go so fast
Yeah

You can be on your way
Track Name: What We Oughta Be
I'm back again, back again,
I'm on your brain but it don't feel the same, feel the same
Since all those feelings came
It's hard enough, hard enough,
This far apart and does it tear you up, tear you up,
And break your heart, girl?

Cuz I for one am losing my mind, girl
I get so lonely in this kind of world
And now I need to see your smiling face, girl
Cuz you're the only one who makes me want to dance, dance, dance

I'll fold this country in half
Come on, we've both done the math:
You plus me equals what we oughta be
This is what we oughta be

I'm stuck again, stuck again
Can't get you off my mind
You're miles away, miles away
Our heart's are side by side

Hold up, let me take off my glasses
Pack up my paper and plastics
It's true, you heard I was crazy
Do what I gotta do to call you "baby"
West coast to east, go the distance
Set my watch, like damn, it's my last chance
I'd wait for you, just let me know
I won't let you down, if you don't let me go
Track Name: Rush, Rush, Rush (Midnight Remix)
Girl, you're the one
I've got all the proof I need and more
Hot like the summer sun
I've gotta pick my jaw up off the floor

What did you plan to do?
You're running through my brain, you're running through my veins
What did you plan to do?
I need your kiss right now, come on let's shout it out!

You're such a chemical, you're such a chemical, you're such a chemical
Rush, rush, rush, rush

Girl you're the one
Don't wanna change a thing about who you are
I'm blown away
Let's see the world and live it up like stars

Buried deep in your arms, I'll say,
This is the place I'll stay
Forever
