about

The Fall Line is a collaborative musical project lead by Montreal songwriter Ryan Stotland. Ryan was the creative force behind 2011‘s “Recession Sessions” album by his then-band The Bull And The Bear. With his sights set on a new creation and completely different themes, Ryan enlisted Montreal producer and musician Daniel Moscovitch (First You Get The Sugar) to realize his collection of new songs.

The result is a 5-song EP titled “Original Sin”. These tales of overcoming the pitfalls of life and love are beautifully delivered by Emily Skahan (Motel Raphael) and Hallie Gyles (Independent) on lead vocals.

Track Name: Original Sin
Grab your gun, get out with the money
Try to look calm but you're nervous honey

I can find moments of faith to calm me down
Everybody lies while they walk on unsteady ground, unsteady ground

Motel windows, red and blue lights
Can I, will I find sleep tonight?

I can find moments of faith to calm me down
Faith is just a last resort on unsteady ground

I found my faith watching you break down just like me God will never watch your back
I found my faith watching you break down just like me life will never give a damn just like me

Grab your gun, get lost with the money
Try to look bright but you're foolish honey

I can find moments of faith to calm me down
Everybody falls when they try to not make a sound, don't make a sound

I found my faith watching you break down just like me God will never watch your back
I found my faith watching you break down just like me life will never give a damn just like me

Heading west of Boston and I pulled into LA
Everyone just shown like stars and I just fade away
I wound up in New Orleans the sun looked like love
I don't think I'll fit in here my clothes are stained with mud, we were young

I found my faith watching you break down just like me God will never watch your back just like me
Track Name: Lost in Boston
First signs of love, time just flew
Surrounded by Boston we hardly know
I’m waiting for someone I’m glad I’m waiting for you

Waiting for adventure and some love
Searching for symbols from up above
I’m ready for battle boy whatever way that it comes

Young and wild living in the moment
time passes we don’t even notice
Time can break you as it takes you apart


Your friends are all waiting for the fall
I’m starting to learn you can’t win them all
Love that will heal you will also break you apart

But for now we’re just dancing and holding strong
Nothing is ventured that still can’t go wrong
And I’ve seen you with nothing on but a Paul Simon Song

Young, wild living in the moment
Time passes we don’t even notice
Time breaks you as it takes you apart

I find it kind of funny I don’t know my way downtown My friends gotta show me around
I get lost in Boston so often It must be a miracle my feet can find the ground
I get to walking I get to steppin I’m always getting lost so just give me a second
All I wanted was an honourable mention just a little bit of all of your attention

Love is the blood from the fight, it’s the flow of emotion that keeps you up at night


Young and wild living in the moment
Time passes you don’t even notice
Time breaks you as it takes you apart

And we’re young and wild living in the moment
Time passes you don’t even notice
Time breaks you as it takes you apart

Young and wild living in the moment
Time passes you don’t even notice
Time breaks you as it takes you apart

Young and wild living in the moment
Time passes you don’t even notice
Time breaks you and it takes you apart
Track Name: New Sheriff
I left home I'm on my own now i'm aching
I left home without a gun and now they're chasing this love that we call ours
Watch the tanks come rolling in please take cover
I left home without a map just to discover our lives scattered like stars

I read the book of Mark to feel your beating heart
And with the gospel through I’m getting over you

Every time that we made love you felt God there
If you're right on Jesus Christ then where is God’s care for us and the left behind
We're the kids stuck in the past don't you notice
The kids the romans never fought cause we've got poisons that kill a faith thats blind

I read the book of Mark to feel your beating heart
And with the gospel through i'm getting over you

You said i'm stuck in Jacob’s dream fighting God for love i need
loneliness is dragging me down
God went down without a fight it didn't even take all night
Now I'm the new sheriff in town
Now I'm the new sheriff in town
Now I'm the new sheriff in town
Track Name: Centrifugal Force
Don’t blame me for the fool that i am
Don’t blame me for the fool that i am
I’ve been going along for a ride and back again

Don’t blame me for the bad that I have done
Dont blame me for the bad that I have done
Everything pure must come undone they call it love

Love acts like a centrifugal force
Love acts like a centrifugal force
I'm moving south my heart is shifting north with you of course

I’ve been through hell to write this damn song
Go through phases most don't last long
But 7 years and we're still going strong they call it love


I dont want to end up stealing money from the poor
I dont want to see the day you show me to the door
If you want to run with me I think we'll it back
All the time I've spent with you is everything I have

Love acts like a centrifugal force
Love acts like a centrifugal force
I’m moving south my heart is shifting north with you of course

Love acts like a centrifugal force
Love acts like a centrifugal force
I’m moving south my heart is shifting north with you of course
Track Name: Hurley's Vol.2
The first time in the hall we met I hoped that you might be my friend
We drank and we raised the score I hoped that it might turn to more
Thought that you were so naive you thought I had tricks up my sleeve
Loved your laugh I can't explain makes me feel I’m born again

Oh I’m on fire I can feel all this desire I can feel all this desire coming over me

Creation myths are for the birds and love like that is for the herds
We're freezing on a northbound train cause pleasure only comes from pain
Got my shoes on the wrong 2 feet you're spilling all the food you eat
Grace is not our fortitude you brought me from my solitude

Oh I’m on fire I can feel all this desire I can feel all this desire coming over me

The faint of heart have come for blood the strong are drowning in the flood
Cause everything is upside down except I know you're still around
Johnny cash the northern star, we're drinking in my favourite bar
When we're here the musics free and baby won't you dance with me

Oh I’m on fire I can feel all this desire I can feel all this desire coming over me
