about

I wanted to write an album where the words were the focus, and the music told the story underneath. I found myself writing poems, more than lyrics, and things weren't clicking. I eventually decided that putting poetry to music might be a cool idea, and so I tried it with "Stanton", and then a few others and it all finally clicked. Along with the study of poetry vs lyric, I started to experiment with my vocal ability. It wasn't about nailing it, as much as it was about expressing my emotion through the sound of my voice. -- By the end of Summer 2010, I had completed an entire album full of viva voce.

This is just a taste of what's to come.

Track Name: Stanton [Demo]
OH!

The fire’s started
heart-beats
burning-red

HOLD IT!

Steady your aim
I’m not into playing games
But I’ll play what you’re playing

And I’ll stay —- for a while

Revenge
and sexual tension
What a perfect situation

A couple of lonely fools
And one of us is the pawn

But I turn a blind eye —-

Because I’m under your spell.
Track Name: Purpose [Demo]
Opened up
Opened up
Opened up
Take the damn thing out

They taped you shut
They taped you shut
They taped you shut
But, was it enough?

God gave me something to work with
This thing between my legs
Oh golly gee, a girl with a purpose
“And she’s throwing it away
She’ll never get married this way”

They shut you up
They shut you up
They shut you up
But, enough is enough

What makes you ill
will kill the maternal clock inside you
You’ve had your fill
And you’ll never let another man inside you
There’s nothing there
There’s nothing left
Besides you
Track Name: Diagnonsense [Demo]
Everyone’s watching
Just waiting…
And watching you, and the clock that doesn’t exist

Puppets and zombies
Electro-convoluted
Pills for the bodies that ache
(Bodies that ache)

Legs are a’shaking
Hands clasped, knuckles white
All of you can go fuck off with your feelings

Rush of blood
Fire in the brain

———-

Who’s really the enemy
When we’re all just mice in lab coats
Selling each other out
Trying not to blow your own disguise

Well, I made a wrong turn
at the end of the tunnel
So, I guess I’ll meet you at the borderline.

Legs are a’shaking
Hands clasped, knuckles white
All of you can go fuck off with your feelings

Rush of blood
Fire in the brain.

I’ll meet you at the borderline.
Track Name: Desire Unbound [Demo]
Sleight of hand
Sleight of mouth
Psychosis, hypnotosis

Your agenda hidden behind blue eyes

There’s nothing to see here
There’s nothing to say
There’s nothing to see here
Just kiss me

Plant the bomb
Set the timer
Watch me explode
Watch me explode

This means war!
My dear, I do declare
I’ve read all your letters
I can see between the lines
We’re out for blood
Your teeth cut straight to the bone
With all you’ve said and done
You’re just afraid to be alone

Feline in a human coat
Snake in the fucking grass
She’s leaving on a jet-plane
So, run, Lola, run…

This means war…
My dear, I do declare
This means war…
My dear, I do declare

There’s nothing to see here
There’s nothing to say
There’s nothing to see here
Just kiss me

Plant the bomb
Set the timer
Watch me explode
Watch me explode

This means war…
Track Name: Concrete [Demo]
I am solid as a rock embedded on the shoreline
Beauty comes to life, where something else has died

This is your bed - in which you lie
You fit the mold that has hardened around you (around you)

Like a lion sinks into it’s prey
The Hunter and the hunted
Postscript!
This jungle ain’t big enough
for the both of us

The hustle and bustle of the city we dream
has become unsettling
No longer romanticizing
over idiosyncratic things
And lusting after unattainable flings

Like a lion sinks into it’s prey
The Hunter and the hunted
Postscript!
This jungle ain’t big enough
for the both of us
