Un Jour 03:40
2.
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

Study 03:22
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

Clerk 04:01
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

Transparent 05:06
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

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

Quickly, Now 02:57

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.

The Hammer 03:10
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?

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

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.
