about

After data failure resulted in the loss of all previous projects, recordings, and lyrics, this album serves as a sort of cathartic release of the previous 16 years of music writing and production.

It is a mix of finished, or, mostly finished songs from myself written between the ages of 10, and up until the loss incident itself at 25.

It catalogues my early experiments with digital writing, mixing and mastering, my early attempts at recording (and playing) analogue instruments, and culminates in an unfinished song that would have served as the title track on my second EP.

Track Name: Family Reunion [2001]
Put another snag on the barbie

Come on I'm hungry

Hey mum do you want some?

You idiot! you burnt them!

Here! Just give me the tongs!

Jerry, Frank, why can't you two just get along?

That's it, I'm out of here.
Yeah!
Me too!
Let's go

Do you reckon they'll notice if we take the hotdogs?
Track Name: Vapourware [2009]
Alright, bring in the magnets!

In a world of chaos (x3)

Alright, bring in the magnets!

Uploading chaos
Track Name: The Low Road [2013]
You don't know a single thing about me
I could even be a psycho killer
Mentally; my mind is like a child
Seriously I am not a killer

There you go you did it again, I'm not your friend
I am a petrol tank that's leaking like a sieve
(don't let me near an open flame)
How can you not see you're in trouble
Like, majorly in danger
I have more faults than Hawaii and Florida combined

Like-Not-Knowing-How-To-eBay

I have got to appeal to everyone in the world
(It's all I have)
You take it away with a word, and don't you look proud of yourself
If only I had some sort of device
To rid us all of these feelings of riding the coattails of society's ills

And it's a shame I'm not the same
And not ashamed to say the same
To take away the pain of differences; subtracted, divided
Multiplied by the power of me quitting math in high school
(It's still hard and all looks the fucking same)

You are not me and
Never will be
Until you perfect human cloning

Is there nobody else
To put above yourself
On your golden pedestal

(Goodnight sweet Prince)
Track Name: 15. Evade [2014]
You through it all away
When you walked right out the door
And left me standing there
feeling so contagious
Infected with a virus
That permeates the air

But nothing ever changes
So I guess we'll keep on faking

It wasn't easy to be
Everything you needed me to be
If only I could remember the way that you'd say
"You're perfect in every way"
The only thing that remains,
When all else is lost to the memories,
Is the shame
And the blame
No matter what we say
It'll never, ever, truly go away.

Evade
You keep on running away from me
Evade
Must think that distance is safety
Evade
Every day ends the same way
Evade
Why don't you just lose yourself again

It wasn't easy to be
Everything you needed me to be
If only I could remember the way that you'd say
"You're perfect in every way"
The only thing that remains,
When all else is lost to the memories,
Is the shame
And the blame
No matter what we say
It'll never, ever, truly go away.
Track Name: Not Nothing [2015]
I don't care what you have done
And I don't want to hear about the guys you are fucking
Your acheivements only extend to self-gratification
You are, less than you were, and nothing at all

Shut your lips or I'll tear them from your face
And laugh out loud as I see the improvement it makes
You are nothing to me but a little child
You are, less than you were, and nothing at all

I'm not as strong as you'd have me believe
I think it's best if you pack your things and get out
I just need some space
Away from your bullshit

Shut your lips you're an absolute disgrace
The poison you spit wears everything, and everyone, away
Thankfully, I went deaf a long time ago
You are, less than you were, and nothing at all (x3)
Track Name: Phase to Phase [2016]
