about

Revised for 2014, this album was originally released 11 October 2011. Back then I was still a learner when it came to producing records and as a result the previous version of this album was a little on the quiet side! Fear not, this has been remedied to make for a much more pleasurable listen. This download includes many extras. Enjoy! x

Track Name: Face of thunder grin
Heart beat in my ears thumping louder.
And i love you the most with your face of thunder grin.
A match across those palms will spark a fire.
Coz you have worked to hard for a life yet to begin.

So take my time coz i no longer need it.
You've earned your stars so take a rest.
Clocks will stop so they can hear your stories,
and their hands will go around my chest.

The pressures off theres no one left to find you.
So loosen off your laces and crumble where you stand.
Theres nothing like a fire to burn the senses.
I stole you all the forests so lets burn them to the ground.

So take my time coz i no longer need it.
You've earned your stars so take a rest.
Clocks will stop so they can hear your stories,
and their hands will go around my chest.
Track Name: Quickest exit
So watch my eyes as they go slack to the sound of your voice from way back,
when i paid no attention to the things you said and the grass was greener on your side of the bed.
And i'm falling back again.

Tell me something i will never know.
Crave attention i will never show.
Tamper with my breaks and let me go.

And take your claws off my beaten legs as i make my play for the window ledge.
No its not fresh air that im reaching for its the quickest exit from 15th to ground floor.
And i'm falling back again.

Tell me something i will never know.
Crave attention i will never show.
Tamper with my breaks and let me go.

Your tiny head blocks out my last light as i look to the sky with my back held tight,
by the streets that save me from another year.
There's no signs of life but it's all good here.
And i'm falling back again.

Tell me something i will never know.
Crave attention i will never show.
Tamper with my breaks and let me go.
Track Name: Jump the blue
You pour me something to keep me there.
Cracks on your knuckles and glints in your hair.
There are no scores to settle, no daggers to give.
There's no reason to stop when their all to live.

And i'm forming the opinion that im staying here.

These skies are different and ground is new.
If i could i would try to jump the blue.
Leaving everything to the citys chance.
The stringed consequences born from your glance.

And i'm forming the opinion that im staying here.
Track Name: Trail song
And you built this for me.
You built this for everybody.
Once carved by your hands
now they sit where mountains still stand.

No danger in the limbs.
Protected where i will walk with my head held and heart felt.
Please douse me coz im on fire inside.

I walk under these leaves.
I think the archetype is pleased they come from far to sail within.
One of the privileged few who knew that hands that carved the two, the third, the one and the inner man.
I see more than those sailors can.

You built this for me.
You built this for everybody.
Some mouths have broken
but never spoken so loudly.

No danger in the limbs.
Protected where i will walk with my head held and heart felt.
Please douse me coz im on fire inside.

I walk under these leaves.
I think the archetype is pleased they come from far to sail within.
One of the privileged few who knew that hands that carved the two, the third, the one and the inner man.
I see more than those sailors can.

Head held
and heart felt.
Track Name: The spectator & the act
So hold me down by the wrists and by the crown.
I thumb the earth 'til i find familiar sound.
To my very small request for your hand
don't give up on me.

Coz i hang from hooks and string.
You left my bones dangling.
Coz i hang from hooks and string.

And you can break me any way you want to.
Squeeze my heart coz it doesn't feel at all.
And you can break me anyway you want to
Just tell me its love before my head hits the floor.

You say your words under breathes of blatent lies.
You bite your lip 'til the skin splits in my eyes.
So lets find a hill and we'll spill over the edge.
Don't give up on me.

Coz i hang from hooks and string.
You left my bones dangling.
Coz i hang from hooks and string.

And you can break me any way you want to.
Squeeze my heart coz it doesn't feel at all.
And you can break me anyway you want to
Just tell me its love before my head hits the floor.

It was you in the car with the fire and the flame.
It was you at the door with the rules and the game.
It was you in the dark with the kick to my shins.
It was you at the end and where it begins.
Track Name: Burn
Your piano is so tired and its keys are all black.
You run your hands down its grain and love pulls it back.
If your chat doesnt kill me then your scratches will.
Coz your eyes are graced with cross hairs and i am your kill.

And your standing still on the wrong side of this hill.
And il just let you burn like i never could.

Your smile could bring the sky down and end worlds tonight.
So play me a song to sleep to with your lips shut tight.
Hair like a foggy coast line that crashes all the ships.
Your siren calls out my name as i fall to bits.

And your standing still on the wrong side of this hill.
And il just let you burn like i never could.

Your piano is so tired
so play your final song.

And il just let you burn like i never could.
Track Name: history making
Hasty like the wind.
The streets are lit as your running past the eyes that burn you through.
And you can smile if you want to.

Theres nothing wrong with that your calling out to
as long as all the wispers spreading aren't true.
Fall in deeper i will follow. Take me.
You are nothing but a history making girl.

Bend this fabric true.
Meet yourself now what to do as the walls are falling down.
One side step now you can't be found.

Was it worth it are you happy, slumped there.
There is nothing you can't fathom nowhere.
Fall in deeper i will follow. Take me.
You are nothing but a history making girl.

Take my side where the conversation is a little more to your liking.
They'l take their turn to show no concern so there's no point letting the light.
Track Name: Maps & destinations
So lets follow maps and find destinations that we never saw before our eyes.
Holding on to each hand as if nothing is planned for us. Are we really running blind.

The heat on my back scolds your name where i lie.
The cracks you avoid in my ways part tonight.

Just don't say anything if you don't mean it.
Don't say anything at all.
Just don't say anything if you don't mean it coz i'm hanging on - for you.

I promise you endless prayers on our roads nowhere, anything i can do to keep you close.
We don't need possesions or feel guilty pleasures on these only roads never flown.

The hands wipe the hours, chase the tails of this day.
The chase for found time is all mine come what may.

Just don't say anything if you don't mean it.
Don't say anything at all.
Just don't say anything if you don't mean it coz i'm hanging on - for you.

So take me down to the clearest water where theres time to make your feathered mind.
Are you scared of leaving or just not believing what ison your mind and what you'l never find.

Just don't say anything if you don't mean it.
Don't say anything at all.
Just don't say anything if you don't mean it.
Track Name: the wrong way
Strapped locked knees.
Misdirection so they won't find me.
There's no doubt.
There's no doubt.

Your born all wrong.
Put together and left for too long.
There's lights out.
There's lights out.

Your null, your void, we're the same.
There's no point trying to raise a spark not again,
coz we are going the wrong way.
We are going the wrong way.
And we will break our hearts in two.
Coz we are going the wrong way.

Every bolt.
Ever screw that turns is our fault.
See through skin.
See through skin.

Fingers curled.
A fraction of our blood in this world.
From a stone.
From a stone.

Your null, your void, we're the same.
There's no point trying to raise a spark not again,
coz we are going the wrong way.
We are going the wrong way.
And we will break our hearts in two.
Coz we are going the wrong way.
