about

November 30, 2015

This is my new album! Just a tiny, rather random, collection of tunes out of my many more summer ideas. Music was written between July and September. Lyrics were put down in October. I recorded it in November. I hope you enjoy! Support in any way you can, this is only the beginning...

Track Name: Athens, Greece
Brother, give me some water 'cause I can't take the heat
I saw everything in forty years but I still got cold feet
They say, times are changing and surely that's no crime
Athens, Greece is burning and I'm out of time

I've known stupid women, I've had hopeless bands
Voted for assholes who would crush me with their hands
My pocket's empty, brother, give me two lines that rhyme
Someone please tell me that I'm in my prime
Athens, Greece is burning and I'm out of time

Don't you read books, don't make me say that again
All that they'll ever give you is cerebral pain
Working like horses to save enough for just a dime
Athens, Greece is burning and I'm out of time

The sun is out, it's laughing at my face
Another wasted project of the human race
My skin is changing and that's the biggest crime
Indifferent and corrupt, sipping their lime
Athens, Greece is burning and I'm out of time
Track Name: Down The Line
I knew I would awaken down the line
And now I am awake
I'm taking back tomorrow down the line
There's loads for me to take

I knew I would awaken down the line
Though others had their doubts
My whispering soul's where I put all my faith
It gained strength and it shouts

I knew I would awaken down the line
And now I am awake
I'm taking back tomorrow down the line
There's loads for me to take

And most of all I'd like to take the road
To consciousness and pride
But sadly I'm not certified to drive
So will you be my ride?

I knew I'd finally find you down the line
Where everything's OK
No extra effort's wasted down the line
Guess I'm supposed to stay

I really see that part now of myself
I'd never let come out
The petty darkness of my yesteryear
I sure can do without

I knew I would awaken down the line
And now I am awake
I'm taking back tomorrow down the line
There's loads for me to take

It's easy to give in to blinding lights
And sirens of the past
So obviously I'll need you down the line
You better make it fast
Track Name: The Rumour
There's a rumour in this town
Killer babies, old men drown
I've been sleeping half my life

And all of my time is misspent
I dream that I'm still heaven-sent
It's easy sometimes to pretend
That you're normal and content
For all of my peers set aside
For all of my friends that've died
I will be singing for all of you, I swear, tonight

There's a white noise in my mind
Little blind girl, right behind
Mama's junior, born to die

I thought I belonged to the stars
I hate all my visible scars
And all the dictators and czars
Couldn't help me find my way
'Cause I saw my dreams get destroyed
My soul crawling into a void
And everyone near me annoyed
Sad and wasted day by day
Track Name: If I Had A Friend
If I had a friend
I would not be lonely
If I had someone around me
I would seize my days

So will you be my friend?
Cuz I really like you
Can you keep good company
To my most peculiar ways?

If I had a friend, would you be that friend?

I promise to be sweet and loving with you all the time
If you sign this paper that says that you're mine
If I had a friend...

If I had a friend
I would not be ruthless
I would floss, recycle
Cook and clean up every day

So if you fancy me
You can be that person
It takes one to write the songs
But it takes two to play
Track Name: Gee
Another song in G
Another place to be
A magic harmony
Don't need your sympathy

Another tiny pea
Another sight to see
Who'll write my eulogy?
Who'll pay my doctor's fee?

Random acts of kindness
And bitterness with violence
Pressed on my hole, they depress my soul
Feeling of togetherness
Lighter than a feather, yes
I'm in control, don't ignore my call

Another lullaby
Another friend walks by
Another gutless try
Another lonely sigh

Another song in G
I live in my TV
Noone surprises me
A perfect anarchy
Track Name: My Canvas Meets Dione
Don't fight it
Don't fight it
How could you live without it?
Don't hate it
Don't hate it
You gladly helped me made it
It's growing
It's growing
It's not afraid of showing
So don't fight it
Don't fight it
How could you live without it?

You need it
You need it
Be careful when you feed it
It won't bite
It won't bite
If you just treat it alright
It likes you
It likes you
It's near you and it psyches you
You need it
You need it
Be careful when you feed it

Poor baby
Poor baby
The word I meant was "maybe"
I'm phony
You're phony
My canvas meets Dione
I had no
Intention
Of losing your attention
Poor baby
Poor baby
The word I meant was "maybe"
Track Name: After All
After all said and done
After we stopped being one
And all the light from your sun just died away
After all the confusion
Your illusion stayed with me every day

After all the frustration
In a cold situation
I went down on my knees and closed my eyes
Couldn't handle the truth
And served myself such a pretty pack of lies

That you probably happened for a reason
Changing seasons in one day
But I still can't believe you chose to leave me
With nothing to say

Memories of lust and laughter
Do I know what I'm after?
When the clocks laugh at my big solid plan
Who will do the cheerleading
And the dirty work for this troubled man?

And you probably...
Track Name: Of Flossing And Plumbing
This is a tale of flossing and plumbing
I'd like to sing it to the rest of the world

Can you feel the pain of Phil
It fills me with great sadness
Feel the pain of Phil
Can you feel
Can you feel the pain of Phil
It breaks my heart with madness
Feel the pain of Phil
Will/Can he heal?
Track Name: A Friend With Weed
I won't be afraid
Darkness won't scare me
I will walk alone
I won't be afraid
Track Name: Be
The brightest star you'll be
If you believe in yourself
If you believe in yourself
Your dark side will be free
If you believe in yourself
Do you believe in yourself?
Children play in the yard
You used to be one of them
You used to be one of them
Sun is hitting them hard
You used to be one of them
You used to be just like them

Duty won't track you down
If you stay true to your dreams
If you stay true to your dreams
(You'll be) the talk of the town
If you stay true to your dreams
You can stay true to your dreams
All your secrets will shine
You got to be strong enough
You got to be strong enough
All the moons will align
If you can be strong enough
You got to be strong enough

Let me show you how
To be
Safe from all these clouds
To be

Find a better way
To be
Starting from today
Just be
Track Name: 10 Minutes
You got 10 minutes to heal your itchy heart
You got 10 minutes to make a sickly start
Another lover, another fairytale
You got 10 minutes to get out of this jail

Don't risk your privilege, don't make the same mistake
Your fizzy present, you're too afraid to shake
You need your servants, you love your credit card
Nobody woke you when "very soft" got "hard"

10 minutes
Track Name: Probably There
Be yourself, have your say
Sing a song every day
Don't succumb to the load that you bear

Don't give up or give in
Though your chances are thin
Don't lose sight of that dream of the fair

And your trip won't come cheap
Certain things may get you down
In the end you'll shake hands with the clown

Keep it real, don't let go
Trust all those in the know
What you're looking for's probably there

Don't you stray from your goal
Learn to love every role
It's a lost art, a gift you must share

And if love is delayed
And your hopes start to fade
Take a breath and let down your long hair

Oh I know it is dark now
And your feet are getting cold
Ageing trails of a joy bought and sold

Keep it real, don't let go
Trust all those in the know
