The Cycle Continues, The Pattern repeats.

 

In all honesty, I’m done, in every single way,

Firstly I’m done with this… retard, I know its not nice to say.

There is no other way and you expect me to live this way.

Don’t dare try to act a friend, I play pretend too, lies never end.

Fuck your rules, fuck your procedures, I’m too fucked to try.

Care is the least of my worries,

still seeking a feasible suicide, I’m alive and I don’t know why.

 

I’m in love with a ghost, been dead, since April made me a fool.

Ever since Swansea, you have lost me, ever since the loss and the cruelty.

Instead of any kind of future, all I see is my past and all I done wrong.

Guard up, hope gone, thoughts become habitual, feelings become scars.

Why live when you have nothing to give, why give if you have no reason to live.

All this talent I supposedly have, yet I feel so unheard, so invalid, so pointless.

 

Where do I go from here? What do I do with this?

Everything seems to hurt, every day seems to feel worse.

Thought. Trigger. Pain. Distraction. Medication. Sleep.

The cycle continues, The Pattern repeats.

My New EP Is Out Now!!!!

Unstable is Available Everywhere Now

Unstable is my new EP and I’m really proud of it, it does what I love about music, hopefully it lets you in, the whole idea to make this project came from my last release I Love You. I have always wanted to get my words into my music in a way that suits my style and I think I nailed my style going forward in a vocal sense, I loved the feeling of being heard and really laying my emotions bare and I knew that I was in the same place emotionally to make an EP out of all the issues I was feeling. Its certainly not a pleasant listen, I’m inviting you in to a mind of a heart broken depressed person who quite frankly isn’t alive by choice a lot of the time. While I was writing all the music and lyrics, I was dealing with a lot of things really fast and I wasn’t ready for any of it. It really pushed me past broken point hence why its all very dark, its honest.

Track 1 “Intro” Unfortunately Chester Bennington died in july and the sample I use at the very beginning just really screamed to me, like his whole message. is that dark place chester is talking about. The intro track was Purposely produced in a minimal way, I’m usually really really concerned about my music sounding big, beefy and complex but this track is much more of a narrative so I knew that I could be much more subtle musically, have one bass line, one kick, one melody for the samples to sit on top of, the samples I used along with the links to the original videos from which I pulled them are below.

Track 2 “I Love You” I wrote recorded and produced this track in between April and may and its comprised of many different lines from various poems I had wrote coming out of a relationship that I wanted to have desperately. It was the experiment that worked, musically its still as dark as I’ve always been but with the vocals its more than just a piece of atmospheric track it feels real.

 

Track 3 “Broken But Alive” when I started this track, I was at my sisters house and I’d just been let go by my care company, so I was forced to take a break from life in a way but had to very rapidly find a new care provider in order to continue living independently and everything just felt broken but I was alive, like it or not I had to deal with this. I wrote the music planning to do another vocal track but it just wasn’t working, musically its just weird frantic and unwillingly upbeat.

 

Track 4 “So Gone” in my head this track is a sequel to track 2 (I Love You), only a different level of sadness. The track is about not wanting to be alive, its about the feeling of total despair, begging for a way out. Its deliberately chaotic in terms of vocal lines overlapping, I wanted to replicated the obsessive nature of my negative thought patterns and unforgiving relentlessness of depression in general. Musically this reminds me of Korn quite a lot not in terms of heaviness just in terms of weird unsettling melody and detuned creepiness, it just feels so bleak, so lost, so sad.

I hope you give or have given Unstable a listen, please let me know what you think be honest to, a negative reaction is still a reaction. Thanks for Your Time.

What If This Is It (Poem)

 

Worth, Value, Cost.

The cost of existing, Feels so high.

I lack the ability to function happily in this society.

I cant really “pay my way”, trained in creation, skilled in feeling.

I compose I produce, I bleed internally, still no-one is hearing me.

 

My art is everything, I am nothing.

Screaming and crying, don’t you see I’m dying.

Dying to feel worth the space, my brokenness wastes.

What if theres no way out, what if this is it?

I live, I lose, I replay my past self, my past life, while I eternally Fade away

 

We all know, I’m not okay

I can tell, you lack, the words to say.

I sense that you want me to be over this,

I feel like your, sick of this me, you want the old me back.

Friend I hate to inform you, that I agree.

Yet it seems, he’s dead and your stuck with me, I’m so very sorry

It Would Be Nice (Poem)

It sure would be nice, to feel clean, really clean.

It would be magnificent to feel comfortable, truly comfortable.

It would be amazing to feel anything close to safe, anything close!

It would be something, if I could outwardly emote, properly break down.

 

This sadness, these obsessions this darkness,

It is heavy, so fucking heavy, still not over my dad dying.

I still don’t know what is real and what is obsession.

I still detest my body and shape, still avoid the sound of my voice.

Still really really love her, still really really hate every part of me.

I try, I really do, I try not to feel empty, I try and at least tolerate myself.

Its not a case of shaking myself, you say that to ease your discomfort.

 

It would be nice to consider happiness

It would be special to believe in the myth.

It would feel nice and warm to slip away from myself.

It would be something, to feel a part of any one of you.
