Track Name: Another Day I Died
ANOTHER DAY I DIED

Alone, I stare into the distance
There's not one face that looks friendly
I hear the spiteful words echoing in my ears
As the crowds move closer in again

I don't have a single friend
Just the voices in my head
Avoiding playgrounds
I walk around these streets on my own
Can't even go home
It's all the same there
The same amount of despair

How will I need to protect myself today?
Will it be another insult or a punch in the face?
If you can't be nice then leave me alone
You wouldn't like to see my ugly side

All the rumours spread like decease
A million versions follow me
I'll help them multiply
If it keeps you satisfied
As you'll never know me
I hardly do
but I know I am not like...
I know I am not like you
Track Name: Alone
ALONE (Cover by Ben Harper)

This empty room, it fills my mind
Freedom, it leaves me confined
Every single wall has cracked
but in this life you can't turn back

I don't want to live...
I don't want to live here...alone

As these words are with my tongue
I question while they're even sung
I have promised but I lied
I don't even know myself inside

I don't want to be...
I don't want to be here...alone

Today and tomorrow have become one
Every single thing has become none
Human nature is a beast
What I've done the most to show I have the least

Please don't leave me here...
Don't you leave me alone...
Track Name: A Million Attempts (Vocals)
A MILLION ATTEMPTS (Vocals)

A million attempts
To switch off my mind
but these thoughts never stop coming
The bloody mess I tried
To wipe clean
I now just find
Myself sitting in

Somehow I must get up and pretend again
That my life's ever been worth living
but in reality, it's all a gun pointed at your brain...
it's just wishful thinking

I would throw up all of these lies
but they're stuck in me like a tumour
Occasionally, they bleed another part of me
Just to see they only want me to die sooner

I'll never open another thought to you again
I may as well be dead, being this repressed

A hundred attempts to change my thoughts
but all you do is remind me of them
Track Name: Medellia Of The Gray Skies
MEDELLIA OF THE GRAY SKIES (Cover of The Smashing Pumpkins)

You're an empty promise, you're an easy chair
You're the Gods forces struck down somewhere

You're a secret noticed, you're a mystery sky
You're a wish floated up to the night

Medellia of my eyes, you're the emptiness of I
You're the reason that I write
And if you say you will, I will love you still
And if I could, I'd throw away this world
I'd dress you all in pearls
I'd give you what you wanted

You're all I notice in a crowded room
You're vacant motives unmoved, revealed

Medellia of my eyes, you're the emptiness of I
You're the reason that I drive
And if you say you will, I will love you still
And if I just could be anything for you
Just anyone at all
Anything that mattered, washed out

You're the silly reasons in a goldfish laugh
You're the ageless season at rest at last
Track Name: Jupiter's Lament
JUPITER'S LAMENT (Cover of Smashing Pumpkins)

Gone, long gone
Blink and I'll be gone, gone, gone
Leave this world of wrong, wrong, wrong
Leave it far behind

And although my secret's gone
I'll try to carry on
If I must, I'll get along
Without you

Gone, long gone
Leave this world of wrong, wrong, wrong
Beyond the pale, beyond the dawn
Flee these mortal bonds

No one knows I can't be wrong
Still I sing the same old songs
I tried to be strong
For you

Why have you left me
Amongst the tall trees?
I know I gave her all I had

And I tied her heart in ribbons
Tied her heart in ribbons
Tied her heart in ribbons
And bows

And I'm gone
Oh yes, I'm gone

And I'm lost without you
I'm lost within you
And I'm gone
So gone
Long gone
Track Name: Here, Again (2014)
HERE,AGAIN

Your lips cannot kiss away
The bruises on my heart
That you never fail to leave behind
The images you say you need
but call meaningless
Can't you see?
How they're the end to my mind?
I always kept it open for you
and only you could put this poison inside
You cannot help how you feel so why would you?

I can't ever come back here again (repeat)
I can't ever escape

This was no way to bring me back
I told you I'd be dead
I still do not know where parts of me have gone
Where ever you are, I'm just a missing corpse
I've seen death with my own eyes before
Now I feel that's all we are
Can't you see what you're doing?
Takes away all of my last hope?
Can't you see what you've done leaves me so alone?
Track Name: When The Mind Collapses (2014)
WHEN THE MIND COLLAPSES (2014)

Swallowed by the eclipses of darkness
I taste the sewers of pain
No matter how many fingers I cross
The battlefield still takes place
Exhausted, my broken hands pull myself to shore
Cannot make it over the cliff tops
Into the sand my head falls, if not pulled

I can't take any more
Any more...
I can't take any more
Any more...
Just let me end it all
and all of before

My former selves collide
With the twisted view
Of who I am seen to be
By very few
and I want to correct them
Make them seen what I mean
but then I dissect their right
To see me how they please
Track Name: Horror Tales (2014 Acoustic Version)
HORROR TALES (2014 Acoustic Version)

I'm trying not to throw up
All these things that make me sick
The horror stories you keep on leaving around for me to read

I've tried to ignore them
I've tried to smash them to pieces
But the character I always end up losing is me

I'm trying to let go
Of all those things I once valued
Now I know they only meant something to me

I've tried to delete them
I'm trying to change them
Without them, the good parts are all missing

I'm trying to pretend
This is not where everything ends
But all I have is words that leave a trail of lies

I've tried to not care
I've tried to find my own secrets
But I've already shared all of mine
Track Name: Horror Tales (2014 Electric Version)
HORROR TALES (2014 Electric Version)

I'm trying not to throw up
All these things that make me sick
The horror stories you keep on leaving around for me to read

I've tried to ignore them
I've tried to smash them to pieces
But the character I always end up losing is me

I'm trying to let go
Of all those things I once valued
Now I know they only meant something to me

I've tried to delete them
I'm trying to change them
Without them, the good parts are all missing

I'm trying to pretend
This is not where everything ends
But all I have is words that leave a trail of lies

I've tried to not care
I've tried to find my own secrets
But I've already shared all of mine
Track Name: Carving Swans (2013 Reproduction)
CARVING SWANS (2013 Reproduction)

I declare my heart is true
Carved a swan, are you aware it's attached to you?
I'm a delicate leaf and you're my shining star
Cannot feel you until the lonely nights have risen

Watch out for the messages your words don't expose
Wish you knew I don't mind as long as your love
Doesn't linger into the arms of someone else
When I want to be the only thoughts filling up your head
As your filling up my life

I feel you as you stand next to me
Let me take away your fears with my touch
Know I am so disappointing, let me make it up to you
and if I can't then you are free to disconnect

I'm limping, unknowing of what's your intentions
but you keep my mind twisting and I'll find a way to untangle
You think of me as an asteroid
but you're wrong

I think you want to be a star in someone elses sky
and if so all I want is for you to take with you
the knowledge that you're still the only one in mine (repeat)
Track Name: When The Mind Collapses (Seaside Sickness Mix) (2014 Reproduction)
WHEN THE MIND COLLAPSES (Seaside Sickness Mix) (2014 Reproduction)

Swallowed by the eclipses of darkness
I taste the sewers of pain
No matter how many fingers I cross
The battlefield still takes place

Exhausted, my broken hands pull myself to shore
Cannot make it over the cliff tops
Into the sand my head falls, if not pulled

I can't take any more
Any more...
I can't take any more
Any more...
Just let me end it all
and all of before

My former selves collide
With the twisted view
Of who I am seen to be
By very few
and I want to correct them
Make them seen what I mean
but then I dissect their right
To see me how they please
Track Name: Abandon (2014)
ABANDON (2014)

All that's left is silence
Filled up with too much noise
Nothing can get through any more
So keep on building up these walls
What used to look like hope has faded
Into the same absence everywhere else goes
All of the dark holes have swallowed me whole
Now I'm just waiting to go

They all turned away when I needed them most
They all died when I couldn't take any more
They all ignored what was obviously killing me
Now it's just myself I must abandon

All that's left are these hours
They go on and on as though they'll never stop
I feel the end around every corner
That the hand turns on the clock
What used to look like sadness has faded
Into the same absence everywhere else goes
All of the raindrops drain me of all colour
Even my tears split in half as they fall
