Ugly 04:09
Hey Have you seen A very ugly girl Well, I’m with her Hey Do you know me Well, I’m kind of white I’m kind of bitter I’m really just kind of misunderstood I love your sister but I know she’d never treat me good [Repeat Chorus] Well we danced in the moonlight When she told me goodbye Such an evil mind Oh yeah And the world just spits on you like a dog And if you want something from it You better hold on to that hog [Repeat Chorus] And the world just spits on you like a dog If you want something from it You better hold on to that hog [Repeat Chorus]

Daylight No one Sittin’ with a gun And I’m broke down Breaking Breaking in the sun Hold tight, Virginia A mile from our home And it’s Comstock to Norfolk A mile from our home   Prison held me Held me through the years And I’m sorry to ya For the lies and for the tears   How’s our little one How’s our precious son Does he call your man daddy Does he see him as the one   [Chorus] I am too small For you now I am too small For you now   Will I find you Home and not alone  As a new train rides in On the broken backs of bone Take my memories Throw ‘em in the road Yesterday’s memories Are tomorrow’s heavy load   [Repeat Chorus] I am too small For you in your world I am too small For you now

Cold Rain 04:19
Cold rain falling All is dark but storming The trees split, they scream and crack And the thunder’s wail breaks their backs And the cats all hide in mothers’ barn The sleeping ghosts can still do harm And you run out to the night Soaked in the rain yet dressed all white You fall to your knees and moan Your always screaming when you’re alone But baby, I was your lover Baby, I was your soul Please don’t find another It’s just I’ve love you so long All that glass you held in your hand Tight as you did, I don’t understand You let it fall to the cliffs down below And I watched it shatter and I watched it go But baby, I was your lover I held you closer than me And I can’t remember How to lose what I can’t even see Baby, I was your lover Baby, I was your song Please don’t find another It’s just I’ve loved you so long

Moonlight 03:48
I decided to live forever Or die trying As long as I held you In my arms close you’d stay At peace with the world And the love inside you dying One more dance you’d say The devil comes today Only in your life Do you find peace and quiet When I’m not around Around to make you pay And all you ever wanted Was life beyond the lie My thoughts drift away To you and me someday When you were alone The world seemed so quiet Now your in my arms And the drums begin to play The old man in the rain Stands wrecked beside his bottle His crutch is whiskey pain To him it’s all the same You fell for a long time The peace inside you dying You fell for a long time The roaring in your veins And I fell for a long time I don’t want to take you down And I made you play the game You are not to blame

about

“Dante Mazzetti has stories to tell and a compelling voice through which to offer them.”
- Rhythm and Boots NYC

Keeping with the themes and story-telling from Hotel Vol. 1, this second EP in the Hotel series continues the tale of a troubled man finding a new life and new challenges. Through 4 new original tracks, Dante Mazzetti tackles a darker tone, infusing his sound with somber vocals and bluesy undertones.

Mazzetti says, “The music on this EP is a mixture of accessibility and wild imagery. I’ve always enjoyed making music that goes off on a tangent but doesn’t fall off the cliff. The songs are doors that open easily into bizarre worlds rather than places of comfort.”

A portion of the proceeds from Hotel Vol. 2 will go to First Responders Children’s Foundation which supports the children of fallen and injured first responders such as firefighters and police officers. Being an FDNY firefighter himself, this charity is very near to Mazzetti’s heart.
