about

This collection of songs has a great meaning to me and I'm very proud of all of them. I hope you can enjoy the songs just as much as I enjoyed creating them all. The collection includes a song at the end which sounds very different to the rest of the songs, this is because I wanted to have a song on there that sounded very raw and almost put a bit of myself into the EP.

Track Name: Moth Season
Awake in the night seems to be the only time that they're alive,
She'll be fine she's sublime,
The final resting place of a man who has no age,
She held it tight she took a knife.

And blood was dripping down her fingers,
And blood was dripping down her face.

Now I can't remember when I was young,
Burning and embers took away all the fun,
Now I can't remember when I was young,
But you seemed to get me through,
I can't remember you at all.

She noticed cracks in the sky as the light flooded through,
He doesn't know he isn't true,
Rotting flesh and putrid breath is clearly evident,
She's alone now she's gone home now.

Now I can't remember when I was young,
Burning and embers took away all the fun,
And I can't remember when I was young,
But you seemed to get me through,
I can't remember you at all.

You're just a page that got ripped away,
You're just a page torn and frayed.
Track Name: Perfect Hue-Man
I've been alone now for days,
In my head you're driving me insane,
Inside this black hole that you call home,
You claim to be colourless yet all I see,
Are red, blues and greens.

Red, blues and greens,
Blues and greens,
Blues and greens,
Thats all she needs that all she needs.

I've tested time against a stop watch and it still hasn't stopped yet,
Well I suppose that was to be expected,
I still believe oh I still believe that with you by me side,
We can colour the clouds in black and white and red.

Blues and greens blues and greens,
Thats all it needs right now,
A bit of red blues and greens,
Blues and greens,
Thats all it needs thats all it needs.
Track Name: Idle Hands
How am I perceived through your vision,
The abundance of joy was triggered through addiction,
Smile so joyfully at me,
Make me believe that you're for me,
Take a seat beside your shadow,
Do you see, what I see?
Track Name: A Hold On Me
I don’t like you anymore,
I may as well be a metaphor,
I don’t want the thought of you drastically changing my view,
I don’t need the things you do embedded in my brain again.

I’ve got a hold on me,
I’ve got a hold on me.

Smell my fear spilling off me,
Spreading into the ground,
Touch my tears rolling onto you,
I’ve misled myself.

I don’t need an excuse to be who I want to be again,
I want a tightened noose to be my only and closest friend,
Creek and swing for me and sing along to the songs we used to sing,
A hopeless night to sleep yet we will continue dreaming,

Smell my fear spilling off me,
Spreading into the ground,
Touch my tears rolling onto you,
I’ve misled myself again.

Let me sleep,
Let me dream,
Let me be me again,
Let me sleep,
Let me dream,
Let me be me again.
Track Name: Your Line Of View
Eloquently, elegantly step into my shoes
Write a wrong in a notebook stop take a look,
Do you notice the writing isn’t as neat as it used to be.
The Irony of washing your hands before
Committing a sin oh,
Take steps in the shoes I walk in notice the souls are quite dirty.

I can’t stand to be away from you,
And I will stand to be in your line of view.

Ohhh Ohhh Ohhh Ohhh
You don’t know Ohhh Ohhh Ohhh
Whats eating away
Inside of me

Ohhh Ohhh Ohhh Ohhh
You don’t wanna know Ohhh Ohhh Ohhh
Whats feeding itself
Inside of me yeah

Step away, step away I think theres something wrong,
I can’t seem to think straight the lines they have gone,
I should have known all along that it was me washing my hands.

I can’t stand to be away from you,
And I will stand to be in your line of view.

Ohhh Ohhh Ohhh Ohhh
You don’t know Ohhh Ohhh Ohhh
Whats eating away
Inside of me

Ohhh Ohhh Ohhh Ohhh
You don’t wanna know Ohhh Ohhh Ohhh
Whats feeding itself
Inside of me yeah
