about

My first solo album! A collection of very diverse tracks I wrote during my first year of university.

Plenty of rock with a healthy serving of randomness. Random bars of 7/16 in a jazzy section. Dissonant, reverberant guitars in an eclectic electronic track. A song that can't settle on a time signature until two bars before it's over. And then, of course, the standard 4/4 rock song. But who likes those much, anyways?

I hope you enjoy listening to these tracks as much as I enjoyed making them.

Some neat facts:

The album was written, played and recorded over an 8 month period. The drums were re-recorded in a professional studio (in one long take) when I had the opportunity.

Track Name: Anywhere But Here
Already past 3 am
As usual, I'm late again
Attention span is drawing thin
Remember what state I'm in

Today,
One can only hope for life to be
At the end of this rope
No time to waste, no better place to be
Than anywhere but here

Activity outside your door
Left her house, and wanting more
Wasting time, but no place to go
So instead, instead... no, things never change

Do they?
One can only hope for life to be
At the end of this rope
No time to waste, no better place to be
Than anywhere but here

I snap from behind your door
I can't take this anymore
Track Name: Study
I can't focus
and I can't see
How I could be so wrong
Why I am even here
Who I might want to be
How anyone can be so sure

They know who they are
And they go so far
But it doesn't matter
How I might change
It's always me and them

And one plus one might equal three
I wonder if I'll ever be
One of the lucky few
Who cares

I'm not like you
I can't survive like this
It's nothing new
But I wouldn't even wish
This fate upon my enemy
This torture on my friend
I'll have to wait it out until the end

I question who I want to be
But one plus one is less than three
I think soon that I might be
One of the lucky few
To care
Track Name: Clerk
Nobody cares about who you are
And no one wants your company
When I see you're coming, It's hard to tell
If I should be running, or I should put you through hell

Quickly and quietly
And then you'll be gone
Swiftly and silently
The world would go on

Why couldn't you lie?
Why can't you drop off the face of the earth
So I don't have to know you
So no one needs to know you

Wouldn't it be nice
To leave you lost and starving
A passenger on a doomed voyage to nowhere
You're no-one
I don't care
You're not worth the air you're breathing in

Quickly and quietly
And then you'll be gone
Swiftly and silently
The world would go on

Why couldn't you lie?
Why can't you drop off the face of the earth
So I don't have to know you
So no one needs to know you

Why couldn't you lie?
Why can't you drop off the face of the earth
So I don't have to know you
So no one needs to know you
Track Name: Transparent
I see myself in your eyes tonight
I see the truth through your lies tonight
If you would look around and notice someone's playing you
Don't get into this mess, it's not something you want to do

Know that I can see through your skin
To the scared little child within
You are not the mastermind you think you are

You've been played for every day this far
Nothing's changed, you're running to the car
Need to try or need to understand
Nobody is here to hold your hand
You're alone
So alone

Know that I can see through your skin
To the scared little child within
You are not the mastermind you think you are

You're too much of a burden to bear
But I know that you'll always be there
You need to move on and be gone
But you will never realize you're wrong

Know that I can see through your skin
To the scared little child within
You are not the mastermind you think you are
Track Name: You Don't Even Know
Someone find me some kind of excuse
There is no way that I will refuse

The truth is hard to find
It's so much more boring than a lie
And then your life becomes a game
You're asking questions all the same

Cause I'm the one that should be you
And you're the one that's always true
This is nothing you'd forget
But you don't even know

That I'm the one that makes up stories
Deep in lies and allegory
This is nothing you'd forgive
But you don't even know

Slipping through these locked doors yet again
This tunnel might just take me to the end

Everybody's looking for some truth
They know they won't find it with you
My web might fall down on my head
With every question like a bullet

Cause I'm the one that should be you
And you're the one that's always true
This is nothing you'd forget
But you don't even know

That I'm the one that makes up stories
Deep in lies and allegory
This is nothing you'd forgive
But you don't even know

I'm the one that should be you
And you're the one that's always true
This is nothing you'd forget
But you don't even know

That I'm the one that makes up stories
Deep in lies and allegory
This is nothing you'd forgive
But you don't even know
Track Name: Late Night Standoff
What do you expect?
What do you expect from me?
There's nothing I can do,
Now everything's on you, on you...

A simple standoff
A lot of work lies ahead of you
Two broken lovers
And not much distance between the two

How could we have seen this coming?
It's not something they would do.
This is the beginning of the end of us.

What do you want?
And who do you want?
And what can I do to help?

I'd love to stay out
I'd love to stay back
I'd love to leave it all to

One little sentence
And the end of your love is here
Two broken lovers
One moves on and one sheds a tear

How could we have seen this coming?
It's not something they would do.
This is the beginning of the end of us.

How could we have seen this coming?
It's not something they would do.
This is the beginning of the end of us.
Track Name: The Hammer
I've been gone for so long
I forgot what my limits are
I forgot who I thought you are
But you knew just the same

You've been gone for so long
Not so much as your own guitar
No ability to go far
But you stayed just the same

Help me find out where the hammer falls

I've been gone for so long
Not so much as a quick goodbye
Too much for you to even try
But you cared just the same

You've been gone for so long
Too long for me to even care
And why would I even look there
But I cared just the same

Help me find out where the hammer falls

I've been gone for so long
Not so much as a quick goodbye
Too much for you to even try
Why?
Why don't you come clean?
Track Name: Headon Forest
The world was black outside my window
when I took to the streets
My tires hit the ground, sped away without a sound
I had someone to meet

It was a night on the town
But for us, the town was wherever we wanted it to be
Freedom that we didn't expect
And people that we didn't need

Here's to the memories
And here's to the times that we shared
Here's to all the songs
The rights and all the wrongs
The faces and the places that made us who we are
Staring at the stars
Hoping we'll go far
But things were perfect here

And that was our fun
And that was our happiness
And then we moved on
And fell into that abyss

And now we're all trying to learn from the past
So we'll become people who know how to ask
And answer all the questions, it's not just a suggestion
There's nowhere else to run, so

Here's to the memories
And here's to the times that we shared
Here's to all the songs
The rights and all the wrongs
The faces and the places that made us who we are
Staring at the stars
Hoping we'll go far
But things were perfect here

Here's to the memories
And here's to the times that we shared
Here's to all the songs
The rights and all the wrongs
The faces and the places that made us who we are
Staring at the stars
Hoping we'll go far
But things were perfect!

Here's to all the songs
The rights and all the wrongs
The faces and the places that made us who we are
Staring at the stars
Hoping we'll go far
But things were perfect here
