about

10 years in the making... a journey of one man, a croaky voice, several DAW's, too many soft synths and insomnia nights....

Track Name: Alone in the Summer (2009)
You left me alone in the summer

You left me alone in the summer

You were the only one
You were the only one

You left me, alone in the summer.
in the summer

So lost now
I hate this feeling of being alone
Theres nothing,
Nothing that I can do On my own
The days are long
The nights cold
got memories
But no one there for me to hold

You left me alone in the summer
Track Name: Other People's Mondays (2009)
some days just pass by

some days make me cry

days don't seem that much to me

but the world is there for me to see



can't hide from the world outside

sounds stupid 'cause I already tried

nothings been simple since the day I died

can't be part of this no matter how hard I try


pressures building and theres no escape

trying to cope but its all I can take

trivial pressure on a collapsing stage

breaking out with a head full of rage

my life is like
my life is like
my life is like

other peoples Mondays.

can you hear me?
can you hear me?
can you hear me?

politicians lie

and people die....

my life is like...
Track Name: Don't Look Back (FT Strobegirl) - (2010)
i'm watching you

stop

don't look back

you thought i would sparkle
shimmer in the light
show me off like a little star that twinkles in the night
you thought you were better
tried to keep me down
have no idea what you've unleashed by messing me around

don't look back

I'm watching you

don't look back

I'm not some painted plaything
I'm not your pretty doll
revenge is such a bitter pill
that I will swallow hole
you think that life is dark now
I'll make it darker still
you set one footstep nearer
and I'll make you my kill

stop

don't look back

you better keep on running
don't stop to catch your breath
i'll find you boy and make you pay
for our loves bitter death
my nails are sharp and black
my heart is blacker still
I'll dig them deep and hurt you bad
until I've had my fill

don't look back

I'm watching you

don't look back

i'm watching you.....
Track Name: Sympathy Machine (Deepest Sympathy Remix) - (2011)
sympathy
sympathy
sympathy
sympathy machine

sympathy machine
just sitting waiting
i know what you want
there can be no hesitating
times not on your side
you're just anticipating
where it can all go wrong
and what you want from me

no love no laughter
just things you'll never need
there's no happy ever after
that's the way it has to be
no time for living
no time for being free
its not my love you're after
i'm just a a sympathy machine

sympathy

sympathy machine

sympathy machine

sympathy machine

sympathy machine
just sitting waiting
i know what you want
there can be no hesitating
times not on your side
you're just anticipating
where it can all go wrong
and what you want from me

sympathy

sympathy

sympathy machine
Track Name: Shatter (2011)
keep breathing

everything's been going wrong
you just can't keep moving on
its been grinding for so long
all your patience is just gone

break
break
break
shatter

keep breathing

these must be our darkest days
all gone wrong so many ways
live in fear just be afraid
living in the chem-trail haze

break
break
break
shatter

keep breathing

time will come and time will pass
its time to take the power back
move in silence, watch your back
stand up as one and then attack

break
break
break
shatter

keep breathing
Track Name: Eloquently Violent (2012) - 2015 Remix
she waits in the shadows
no one knows just what she knows
and when she breaks her silence
she's eloquently violent

a verbal assassin
the words slip out in passing
and now there's no escaping
the deadly game shes playing

every word spiked in venom
her voice a deadly weapon
cold hearted verbal snipe
there's no way you can fight her

she waits in the shadows
no one knows just what she knows
and when she breaks her silence
she's eloquently violent
Track Name: Horrorgasm (2012)
Nobody told me

That its the end of the world

Nobody told me

No one told me at all

I see the fires

I can see the bodies burn

Nobody told me

That its the end of the world

Where do I go now?

What do I do?

Is there a heaven?

A place I can go to?

Nobody told me

Nobody told me at all

I hear it coming


Nobody told me

Nobody told me

Nobody...
Track Name: Dreamscape (FT Strobegirl) - (2013)
flying in the dark
the wind against your face
i'm talking to you now
i'm talking to you now
in your dream

over darkened towers
spending all those hours
your lost in a dreamscape
never to escape from yourself

i'm talking to you now
i'm talking to you know

will you ever wake?
will you ever take hold of your life?
caught in this dreamscape

you're not alone in your dream
you're not alone in your dream

will you ever wake?
will you ever take hold of your life?
caught in this dreamscape

flying in the dark
the wind against your face
i'm talking to you now
i'm talking to you now
in your dream

will you ever wake?
will you ever take hold of your life?

caught in this dreamscape
Track Name: It's Only A Moment (FT Strobegirl) - (2013)
Electrogroove....it moves you.....

under the mirror ball
lie dancing and strobing lights
try to forget it all
how you're lost to me tonight
if only I could dance away
what I left behind

what did I leave behind?

my hearts with you and I know that you love me
but you're already with her
and I'm just not sure if I can be much stronger
I can't go on like this any longer

its only a moment,
now its lost in time
when I was yours
and
you were mine

its only a moment
its only a moment
its only a moment

if only I could dance away
what I left behind

if only I could dance away
what I left behind

Its only a moment

its only a moment
now its lost in time
when I was yours
and
you were mine

what did I leave behind?

what did I leave behind?

what did I leave behind?

its only a moment lost in time
its only a moment lost in time

its only a moment (lost in time)

its only a moment

you were mine.
Track Name: So Near But Far Away (2013)
i don't know what you're thinking
I don't know what to do
I know that in this moment
All that I want is you
i don't know what to do here
don't wanna feel like this
i feel you standing close and
i wanna feel your kiss

But your so near and far away
You are so near but far away

i'm standing contemplating
all that I want to do
and theres no big suprise that
its all to do with you
i wanna touch your face and
I wanna see you smile
I wanna show you heaven
Just for a little while

But your so near and far away
You are so near but far away

But your so near and far away
You are so near but far away

I want to take you
On a slow ride through my soul
Show you everything
that you should know
i want to hold you
oh so close
i want to know you
never let you go
but you don't know..

But your so near and far away
You are so near but far away

But your so near and far away
You are so near but far away

don't wanna make excuses
I know its time to leave
yet still i feel the tension
it flatters to deceive
its easy being distant
its easy being friends
i'd change it in an instant
no more need to pretend

But your so near and far away
You are so near but far away

But your so near and far away
You are so near but far away

I've got to tell you...
Track Name: Hallucinated Deity (2014)
Hallucinated Deity

Somethings coming over me
I'm not the man you used to see
And Every night before I sleep
I sit and pray to a hallucinated Deity

My god is cold and sick inside
Full of hate and full of pride
The only goal's to make me cry
To test my faith and then deny

Hallucinated

Hallucinated

Hallucinated

Hallucinated

This life is dark and full of pain
Its just a lonely twisted game
And while I'm down and on my knees
I live in fear of a hallucinated deity

My god is cold and sick inside
Full of hate and full of pride
The only goal's to make me cry
To test my faith and then deny

Hallucinated

Hallucinated

Hallucinated

Hallucinated Deity
Track Name: Monster (2014)
Monster

Here there be Monsters...
I am a monster...

We met, We kissed we fell in love
Did all the things that we dreamed of
But then one day you changed inside
You chose to run away and hide
Then all the things you said to me
Your so called truth
You paint a picture of me now
That isn't true....

Now I am a monster
You say I'm a monster lately
Well Here there be monsters
I am a monster
Yes here there be monsters
Say that I am a monster lately

And though you said that you loved me
It can't be true
That or you've lost the memories
Of me and you
We had a love but now its gone
Destroyed by you
But love takes two and not just one
Now tell me who....

Who is a monster?
You say that I am a monster lately
Maybe you are the monster
And here there be monsters
Are you a monster?
Yes here there be monsters
Maybe your the monster lately
Track Name: The Angel (2015)
My angel came on a Sunday morning
Filled my heart with her joy and healing
Bathed my soul in a holy light
Filled my days and she soothed my night times

Gave me hope when I had none
Taught the meaning of right and wrong
Showed me love that I'd never known
Slayed my demons and bought me home

Angel left on a Friday evening
Stole my heart and my soul was bleeding
Left me standing at heavens gates
She couldn't save me now its too late

She flew away

She flew away
Track Name: Time to Make you Mine (2015)
I've waited
So long and
Its here in
This song now
I've got to
Let you know
Theres something
I Can't let go
I've known for
Some time now
We need to
Be one now

And now its time to make you mine
I'll take the time to make you mine

Slow moving
Sweet talking
So soothing
When I'm lonely
Good looks and
Great style and
I loose myself
In your smile
I've known for
Some time now
We need to
Be one now

And now its time to make you mine
I'll take the time to make you mine
Track Name: Dissonance (2016)
Why can't you see?
I'm not the man you think you need
I'm not your dream
You walk a fine line loving me

It's clear to me
You want to live a fantasy
To the extreme
You can't project your needs on me

And I know...
And I know all the things you dream
And I know
And I know all the things you dream

Do you believe
All of the things you say to me
I'm not your dream
You walk a fine line loving me
