about

This is a re-issue of the first four songs I released some months ago on Soundcloud. I've also included three tracks that were downloadable for a while on SC. Enjoy, share, or criticize!
Thanks for listening!

Track Name: Interstellar
In the summertime
I wake up dancing alone in my mind
In the summertime
I don't want to be enclosed by grey walls
By grey walls so small

In the corridor
No one can sing with the sun
Wish that I could escape
And fly among the fireflies
the fireflies in the sky

In the ocean sky
High

My interstellar dream
Will fly away with me
Track Name: Falling Like Submarines
Well we're changing with the time
But every time you stop to think
The world speeds up
And we get left behind

Now I fear the world
Is spinning faster round and round I know
And every time you feel the friction on your sole
The floor just lets us go

And now we're falling down
Falling down like submarines today
Falling down quite hard
No parachute in sight
And we're falling down like submarines, like submarines I know

Time, time, time will never stop for us
And even though we tried to work
It always failed
And we just fell apart

See I know connection lines
are breaking down and quickly losing ground
And now I feel how you did so many days ago
And it just brings me down

Just wished that we weren't falling down again
Falling down like submarines today
Falling down quite hard
No parachute in sight
And we're falling down like submarines, like submarines I know
Track Name: (You Don't Know) You're A Curse In My Head
In my room
I'm black and blue as I fight
This lack of self-control
That seems to keep you satisfied

Wonder how
I got to be the fool
In that game you play
Even though I have myself to blame
You're a curse in my head

You don't know
You're a curse in my head
You don't know
You're a curse in my head
You don't know
You're a curse in my head

You, you wage a war
An imaginary one
That leaves you high
Above my head

Or in my thoughts
You go on and one
With that game you play
I doubt you even know
You're a curse in my head

You don't know
You're a curse in my head
You don't know
You're a curse in my head
You don't know
You're a curse in my head
Track Name: Wither
Love, I've lost your soul
Sing to God and let me know you're whole
Sing these hollow bones
Need to hear your voice

Deep inside
I can hear you breathing
Deep inside
I can feel you near

Feel it everyday the sun goes down
Falling down from grace to shine on you
I pray for the day
For the day you come back through my door

Deep inside
I can hear you breathing
Deep inside
I can feel you near

I wonder why
Why you had to go
I guess the time
Has a way of showing how
You wither in my dreams
Track Name: Ventura
Driving through the street
In the static rain
I see her with the guys
She holds them by her side

And I just won't believe
My little dove is flying away

In the midst of it
I put on a show or two to justify my troubled mind
In the midst of it
She gives me a slap or two and tells me me what she really means

Lately I've been red
Among the lights and neon noise
There's something in the way she moves
That leaves me thinking more and more

And i just can't believe a single word
She told me once before and did she lie

In the midst of it
I put on a show or two to justify my troubled mind
In the midst of it
She gives me a slap or two and tells me me what she really means

Swirling
Head goes
Falls on
Sofa

Swirling
I heard
What she said
She said
Track Name: In The Spring
On the eve of a dying year
I've drifted away into the atmosphere
And I am seeking pieces
Among the air she held

The more I find the less I know
It's in the photograph
She left behind the pillow case
I know the choice she's made

Oh, oh, oh
My love she's gone, she flies with the western sky
Sun rises still, still from the eastern shore
Melts away the snow

Behind the scenes and heavy drinks
I've fallen on a box of hers
It's holding on to things that she once held so dear
So will she reappear

And on the dawn of the rising times
I've hidden from the emptiness
Waiting for a chance
To see the sun

Oh, oh, oh
My love she's gone, she flies with the western sky
Sun rises still, still from the eastern shore
Melts away the snow at the door

There's a burning inside
It's not for her though
Eyes reflect
With each waking pond that shines

Sun rains upon
Swells on my soul
Patiently I'll wait by the door
For the spring
Track Name: Winter Snow
Feel my shackled hands
They're bound by shadows from the past
And I can't find
The key to free myself

Feel time slow down
Beside the windowpane
Feel it in the drop of rain
It's a living memory that needs to die

Eternity's just a drop in the sea
Eternity's just a drop in the sea

Tear these prison walls
Break the chain that holds me back
But circumstantial woes
will take its toll

My shackled hands
Bound by something I can't see
Why can't I find release
Release, release

Eternity's just a drop in the sea
Eternity's just a drop in the sea

Cant believe it took me this long
To find the key inside of me
Cant believe it took me this long
To find the key inside, inside, inside
