about

"Through stories of survival, escape, redemption and regret, tunesmith Troy Petty pens lyrics that sting as well as soothe atop a flawless mix of well-honed Americana and polished alternative pop."- Jim Hanke, Forest Bride PR

Troy's latest EP "Departure" inspired by the recent changes in the artist's life, direction and the inner struggles that once held him back. Confrontation with fear of leaving, ghosts and a past of malcontent.

Track Name: All Ghosts
I disguised you
with the fear in my rearview
I’m not glued to the past
but that voice on my right told me that
all ghosts fear to fly

I’m a restless spark
when the art of light turns dark
but i was bound by the fall
i was bound to fall for anything

when all ghosts feared to fly
all ghosts feared to fly

I found you
through the wounds in my rear view
and all those fears to fly
all those fears to fly


Doesn’t matter how
the mirror just knows
what do you see?
alone inside a stranger
or adored like an angel ?

I’m gonna find my way into you
I’m gonna find my way in through you
take this flight!
take this flight!
take this flight (sky)high!

turning ghosts into angels now
turning ghosts into angels, I’m
turning ghosts into angels I’m
turning ghosts into the sky.
the sky
the sky.
Track Name: Unfinished
Lay it out
Obsess on what needs fixing
wait it out
the lines are always shrinking

don't lay it down
and let it die unfinished
rule out any doubt
in your ambition

don’t settle now
when you could be setting out
don’t go down unfinished

lay me out
Obsess on what I'm thinking
make me doubt
rule out any reason
to lie down
and die unfinished

I’ll rule out certain death
to my resistance

I’m setting out
be sad to settle now
I won’t go out unfinished

let me out
can’t you feel my heart sinking?
(shutting down from almost dreaming)
let me down
you see my heart’s not in it
(shutting out with all my heart now)

Don’t settle now
don’t let me die unfinished
rule out certain death
of my ambition
I’m setting out
it’d be sad to settle now
I won’t go out unfinished
I won’t go out unfinished
I won’t go out unfinished
I won’t go out unfinished
Track Name: Motor Mind
My motor mind
A snapshot in motion
from a million eyes
I regret
never letting you

In my motor mind, I can’t sit tight

My motor eyes
play, pause, pretend, rewind
begin again
blink, hopelessly.. blink
In my motor mind
I can’t sit tight

In my motor mind
I can’t sit tight
for long!
In my motor mind
I can’t sit tight

I’m motorized
I don’t know how I sleep at night
My motor mind rolls all night long
All alone
I’m motorized
I don’t know how I sleep at night
My motor mind rolls all night long
All alone
(i apologize for seeming strange
and leaving you behind these eyes in pain)

My motor mind
motorized
my motor eyes
motorized
my motor mind.
Track Name: Set Me Free
Set me free
untie my tongue
Set me free
untie my tongue

set me free from the virus
that keeps me small, weak and lifeless
outplayed as long as I keep quiet
and refrain from excitement

Set me free
untie my tongue
Set me free!

Open me, my enemy
I’m just dust if play silently
all these years
I’d forgotten to breathe
and how i held it from the best of me

ghost, set me free!
go on, ignite my lungs!
Set me free !

Just a little push..

Free, free untie my tongue
set me free
Free, Go on
Ignite my lungs now
go on, Push
set me free !
free, go on and
Set me free!
Track Name: Departure
A new day’s habit
expires in minutes
look where you are
deep enough in it?
Enough said to uniform your world
all comforts are worn
yet none of them are your’s

If you stay, your reason
will divide into millions
look where you are
can you see past the deep end?
If all you’ve served never cared you’d return
then all you’ve learned is to serve
well enough to keep you
looking up, but never see
look up, but never see

So close to departure
So close to what could be

The World, The World!
The World is calling you

Don’t lose your way by
just getting by
if all things come to an end
this ride will be the finest escape
from all the doubt
eating you up.
You’re nowhere until you’re found.

Make your move that makes them see
Make your move that makes them see
you’re so close to departure
so close to what could be
the World, The world !
The world is calling you!
