about

A diary of acoustic songs that I wrote from 2005-08-02 through to 2009-11-30. I suggest listening to it by a fireplace, with a cup of tea in hand.
Don't feel pulled at the side of my shoulder, leaves fly burning and crumbling in fire. Feeling apart from a life that I felt so a part of, reading forgotten stories with no one to read to. This is not our time, Fairlight shines on you.

Track Name: Ice Queen
Let's make the time, to wash each other of the dirt that is in us
Destitute and wet, the surface of our skin is starting to glow red

When the sun is ready to burn out and all the heat has gone in me
The jetted moment will end with something beautiful for all to see

You; know; I; that I can't go away

I can't seem to sleep, I'm messed up with anxiety and it kills me
As crazy as it sounds, I'm waiting for the ice queen to melt down
Track Name: Tear Down
Tear down the blinds of your mind
Once you're out of anomie and clout

I'm sorry, but it's been too long, I'd rather disappear

Elevate yourself but don't lose discipline
I cannot force myself to smile when twisted up

I'm sorry, I don't want distrust, I'd rather disappear into wanderlust

Losing count of all the times I sat and spent an hour
I don't want to dwell upon it but you just make me mad

I'm sorry, I don't want distrust, I'd rather disappear into wanderlust
Track Name: Edwin
You want to drift away (x4)
Drift away (x4)

(Instrumental)

Wake my insides, ignite your green eyes
I was taken away to the last place on earth

You can stop me shivering with your one eyed blink
and keep me breathing when we're fading out

(OOoooohh's)

Bloody tide let down and cannot move into reverie of red and black
Edwin could be me or even you, well it's me, yes I'm him, now you know that it's me

Standing out in the fall you made me faint
Suddenly I had realised how to feel

Now that I have come out of my shell
There are no more jitters to twist my words

(Guitar build-up)

Now that I've made you immortal, you are no longer a blood doll
The lust as you're pushed by the hunger, come and we'll prey on the wight
Track Name: Butterflies
Burying eyes with the wave of your hand
Is to make one at peace with earth
To push or ignore with a dishonest smile
Shows an opposite side to you

This life is a dream, surpress yourself
Just rip off your clothes, to see and believe

You're looking pale
You're reaching out (x2)
Tasteless and crazy
This life all around (x2)

The edge of contempt is the edge of a blade
To manage yourself inside
Forget all that's said and believe all you read
You're sinking beneath the bed

The sight of some hope, really exist
You're trying to move, your legs and your arms

You're looking pale
You're reaching out (x2)
Tasteless and crazy
This life all around (x2)
Track Name: Patriarch of Us
An imaginary depressive demure and itching to forget
That I'm just up and down with the varying notes of my voice
Fall back from the dizzying heights
Fall back from the dizzying heights

Picked up by the treads of my crack boots as
I come home and crash into the gates
but it's spewed out on the rubble and stepped on
every day as I walk out of my front door

This is the price to have your roots poisoned by your guilty hands
Whilst the lines on your lips stay moist with your drool and vicious stare
Fall back from the dizzying heights
Fall back from the dizzying heights

Break sweat and break off all ties and put your arms around
me as enslaving chaos held together by
both sides of you and this spit can wash dirt down
the plug hole to the patriarch of us
Track Name: Equanimity
I met you in the garden
Slumped laying down right beside you
You stared me down with the craziest smile
and told me that I was your king

I felt you dig inside me like twelve volts are drilling through my chest
You pulled me to the back of your mind where we'd be in equanimity

I remarked that I wasn't conscious
and my acumen was not in check
Frightened that this might be a hornet's nest
and I suspected that you were the queen
Track Name: A Harrow Spell
Pins and stencils
All go in a pot to keep
Tiny worms
Picked out from your ears

Living on a patch of hail
Whilst scratching at the choking grass

Pushing, crushing
Crumbling from a muddy trip
Painful baggage
Dripping from a horror shower (and)

(Dream poetry)
We didn't want to open our mouths to see if we could
still breathe, but we did, and it was inevitable.
We started gently lifting off away from the surface
as the vacuum took us, becoming further pressured,
ice cold, with our arms around each other, eyes closed,
we froze together in space.
I woke up.

A harrow spell
The tender love of peaceful owls
The starting ticks
While I sit idly by

And fall out of this world
And fall out of this world
Track Name: Honeycomb
So you may think this turns
An awkward angle, bent in shape
The busy mind of a deep soul
Is the lazy mind of beauty

But of all the time in the world
We can't escape the distance

Onto the ground where you'd stare
If your fingers could spark the air
It would create a honeycomb
And pour out the purest springs

With sight I'm sold by your eyes
And stuck around your arms and thighs
The buzz from breathing in
Self-suffering euphoria
Track Name: Blackouts / Dressed Up
Cold ripped acid tense and tired
Damaged written and with absolute power
Burning trails of governed people
You know you have been trying too hard

Weathered abused surface like red eyes
but not something that can be removed

Pour hard shells and contradict again
and again these words are a kind of sickness
Crazy burnt adolescence with words, blackouts in heaven
My head was brought to a stand still

One day maybe today self seeding
Reinsert without self loathing

I've gone way past what I have dressed up and (x3)
I've gone way past what I have been dressed up in
what I have been dressed up in (x3)
Track Name: Early Bird
Faster than your life
Free will
Leave us ill and hollow
One day it will be

Different for the rest
More lost than their lost

You're a missing person
Clean up the woods
Scout the hills and wilds
Never to be found

Maybe I am one of them
Mortified and bashful

Silly unmistake
Different way to rest
Your profound judgment
Made me shake and move

I only think of you
When I'm scared to hell
It hits me like a gun
When I see your face

Alt. Verse

Out to the sky
Out to the heavens
Scout the hills and wilds
Never to be found
Track Name: Ribbon Tail (Poor Old Witch)
Lay listening to the touch of voice by your face, and
You can't stay without your golden crown
That's not even yours,
Placed without a care

Sing lightly to the sound of love by your heart, and
You can't stay without your diamond ring
That's not even yours,
Placed without a care

I wont give in to this magic hurt
Cut off your ribbon tail and fly

Free one only for the kingdom to re-live, she'll
thrive, gladly guard and save; the honest type
No one ever feared,
No one ever saw

Sweet lies are told by the sweetest eyes I've ever seen, then
All your luck went down when the poor old witch
Took the crown from you,
Snatched it from your head

I wont give in to this magic hurt
Cut off your ribbon tail and fly
Track Name: Edges of My Lips
I jumped into a hole in the ground
the biggest hole I've ever seen
straight after cutting into stone

It felt prodigious to be
sucked into wishing to be free
waiting for a new excuse to open up and scream

How can you miss out on the chance to fall into your lovers arms,
and break through the frozen ice above your head, I don't know

Dark gathering clouds above you
emaciated will and empty tears
after reading empty words

You attenuate my placid eyes
you burn away the edges of my lips
to draw my portrait into rust
Track Name: Abscond
I'm woken with a pinch to the skin
With dry eyes and morning hair
The first thought is always the same
How will I pass the day away

The constant anxiety
And irrationality can seem
To push mixed episodes in me
A certain slightly stupid girl

I don't want to make you worry now
Stuck with inadaquate use of tongue
Neurotic superego pushing inside
Until I've bowled down the highway

(Feeling you, feeling me, feeling new)
Track Name: Winter Rain
Silence reads off emptyness
Stay awake and work on readyness
It's not ok to leave it far behind
Coz it will be swept by winter rain

Where's the covent warmth before
Lost to nature's withered heart

Cloudy for a thousand days
Feel the breeze as if it's freezing you
It's not ok to leave it far behind
Coz it will be swept by winter rain

(Chorus then Outro)
Track Name: Tangleheart
I'm not sending letters to you, takes up too much of my time to explain what had gone wrong
You'll see that all you need to do is come down on your motorcycle bike, strapped in leather clothes
Strangely you stare blankly at me, your breath is freezing my eyes

Do you want to know where I went? can you bear to hear? it's somewhere you can't see
Soft, warm and innocently crawling without stress, a world where I feel free
Strangely you stare blankly at me, your breath is freezing my eyes
Cinnamon and bread, Tangleheart and doubt, loose screws in my head are quietly falling out

You saw my wilted rose and frown and couldn't keep it in, I've never felt ok
I dont think it's possible to see past this inbalance of my mind, please don't carry on
Strangely you stare blankly at me, your breath is freezing my eyelids shut
Cinnamon and bread, Tangleheart and doubt, loose screws in my head are quietly falling out
