about

Ive decided to record a very rough album!! Its pretty much just me playing guitar and singing. The whole thing recorded on my little 8-track machine in my hallway at home. You will hear coughs, chair scrapings, my wifes blender, heavy breathing, mistakes and many other fantastic sounds. My aim is to get the song recorded as simply as i possibly can! Hope you enjoy!

Track Name: Little fire
There's a little fire in the east
Quietly spreading in
All the oceans in the world
The horizons drooping on the fence
Morning birds
Morning light
The cool of autumn fills my lungs
Now its begun

Tracing my own steps through town
Able bodied people everywhere
They stare me down. down. down.
For a while.

Theres an echo I can only hear
In my head
Shifting gears
Its a dangerous escape.
Track Name: Spades and arrows
Roll the dice
Spades and arrows
Colourful
Like a storm at sea
Flash of light
Learnt the language
Sunlights gone
Now its time to go

Say what you think
It's all that you know
Once the rumours dry
Like a summer sky
Then you'll feel alright
As it passes by

Trace your words
Without warning
Dim your heart
To let light things through
Straighten up
To hear whats coming
Park your car
In your quiet street

Mending a roof full of rain
To pray that the rain stays away
Bottle up all use
Shake away your nerves to find tomorrow

Taking your aim
To shoot your arrows through
At the end of the day
Whos gonna be the one to make you?
Track Name: Is it worth keeping a straight face?
And afterall
The way back home gets darker
A shallow light
Gets lost in rainbows rain
Without a word
The misery gets stronger

Is it worth keeping a straight face?

Collecting rain
On a cardboard highway
The highs and lows
Of losing all control
Don't mark my words
You cannot last without them..

Is it worth keeping a straight face?
Track Name: Dying art
Lost your lisence in a quiet street
Nobody knew how to get through
Except for ghosts marching through the air
They have the key
For everywhere

And its better to run away from the start
I wouldnt have it any old way
Cos life is a dying art..dododo
So why have you kept me waiting?

Thieving coins in the pouring rain
Flashing lights
Blinding your eyes
Amber lights and your racing heart
No better way to spend our days

Suffering in the cold
Its just the same..
Track Name: Familiar love
I've heard a couple of the tales
Where the guy
Dies from familiar love
And sure it takes all we own
And a little bit more
To survive with familiar love

Climb high
To hide away from spies
Straighten crooked frames
And you don't wanna even wake up..

Show a moment of pain
Cos it shows
That your'e gonna let it slip
And breathe a little slower for me
Instead of fleeing the scene
It's all in familiar love

Climb high
To hide away from spies
Straighten crokked frames
And you dont want to even wake up

Fill in the gaps
With smoke and mirrors
Your words alone can kill my trust
Fence off tomorrow like a murder scence
Cos it so long..
Track Name: Wishing well
Your favouring
The wishing well
Your fast asleep
A ringing bell
Your underneath
The darkest skies we've seen

A troubled wind
A troubled mind
Can break your heart
In troubled times
You throw away
Your aching soul for now

And when you find love
Is all in all
Shoulder to shoulder
Breaking fall

Your favouring
The wishing well
Your fast asleep
A ringing bell
You're underneath the darkest days we've seen
A troubled wind
A troubled mind
Can break your heart
In troubled times
You throw away your aching soul for now

And when you believe love
Is all in all
Shoulder to shoulder
Breaking fall
Track Name: Rescue
I'm made up of corners
And I'm true to my word
But I can't rescue you if i tried

Bad weather signals change
So gather your things
Cos we're heading south
Somewhere underground

There's a little daylight
When i open my eyes
But daylight turns to rust
And now im restless and tired
Shame i had to go and spoil the party

I'll keep to the front seat
You're stuck in reverse
This wood is waterlogged
The air is dry

You never get your way
It's now adding up, up..
Shalalalalala. Oh. Shalalalalala
Track Name: Fumbling the city keys
At a glance
The weeks has lost its days
Dumped in the city
Without a word to say
No reply
With one foot in the grave
And no change to spare
So why do we care?

Fumbling the city keys
Now you've spared a thought

Ride the bus to nowhere so you'll see
What came over me.
