about

Well, i'm a strange person from a strange and lonely place making strange music from atop a strangle and lonely hill. i'm a actually a pretty chill dude, i like my personal space, and i'm not exceptionally outgoing, i'm an introvert as some might say. So uhmm here's my music a blend of everything (or mostly everything) that i am and a little of what i am not. There's folk, indie-ish-ness, electronics, glitch, weird stuff, pop, cellos!, etc...

thank you my peeps...

also my live persona is quite different from the actual album itself, the songs would still be recognizable in their live form but only so, i prefer to not play a song the same way everytime. i use a loop pedal in my performance along with a keyboard, guitar, DS, and sometimes a cello and etc... and i may or may not have others performing with me.

Track Name: Introduction
some people call me names, names that i’d rather not hear them say.
so let introduce myself to you, my name is not important, nor is my face.
you don’t need my picture, or a second-hand story mostly made of lies and rumours.
just try to get to know me better, here is my life.

When i go to sleep
i feel as if there are monsters all around me
i fear i might be taken in the night
oh oo oh i’ve been given such a fright

I love the light
the sun, the moon what a sight
time and space
sweet darkness and light

my dreams are filled with light
but then they go dark
I can not help but be confused
No transitions No transitions

when i sleep worlds open up to me
then transform before my shut eyes
no transitions no transitions

falsetto solo:
i hear echoes from the real world disturbing me trying wake me

I love the light
the sun, the moon what a sight
time and space
sweet darkness and light

Children are sleeping quietly dreaming
Of the lives they’ll live up until that point when they are done and have flipped their coins
All their love will fade away yet linger on them
They will throw away all their pencils and papers for a digital god

Oh oo oh we need another saviour a new book not drawn on paper
Oh oo oh these small erasers can’t hide the imperfections no
Oh oo oh the world is changing time for some rearranging a brand new scheme
Oh oo oh nothing is perfect you could send me to heaven and I could call it hell
Oh oo oh damn your lies I can’t which way is right or who’s on my side
Oh oo oh I’m gonna die someday so imperfect yet so very close

Track Name: French Toast
Bonjour, mon amor
Je'taime

Key of F Major
Track Name: Owls In the Trees
It was the stare of god that shook me down
Shredded me of all my clothes
And I was naked before him

Nothing to hide but yet I lied
To god you don’t lie to god I lied to god
Would you confess to all your sins or would you not and just say you did.

That’s what I did I am such a hypocrite but I’m not an atheist
I’m just loosing faith

For When I see terrible things on the screen, boys hanging themselves and mothers crying.
I can only cope by denying and saying

god wouldn’t do this to me, god wouldn’t do this to me
god wouldn’t do this to me, god wouldn’t do this to me
god wouldn’t do this to him, god wouldn’t do this to her
god wouldn’t do this to anyone, god wouldn’t do this to me

what my friends think, what would my parents think
what would teachers think if they knew
what would my pastor think what would my grandma think
what would society think if they knew

The owls in the trees the dogs in the backyard mean nothing to me
For I must gouge my eyes out so I don’t look in an improper way I don’t want to look at you the wrong way. What would everybody think if I began to say the truth that I was…

god wouldn’t do this to me, god wouldn’t do this to me
god wouldn’t do this to me, god wouldn’t do this to me
god wouldn’t do this to him, god wouldn’t do this to her
god wouldn’t do this to anyone, god wouldn’t do this to me

what my friends think, what would my parents think
what would teachers think if they knew
what would my pastor think what would my grandma think
what would society think if they knew

it’s really hard to say, to admit that you’re... gay.
Track Name: I Breathe Air
I Breathe air
I Breathe air
I Breathe air
I Breathe air

Sparrow Flies
Away

Clouds come alive
And fade

(Ooh)

Tomorrow I will fly
Up in the sky
And I will breathe
Clean air

(Ooh)

I Breathe air
I Breathe air

(I Breathe air) Sparrow Flies
(I Breathe air) Away

(I Breathe air) Clouds come alive
(I Breathe air) And fade

I Breathe air
I Breathe air

Tomorrow I will fly
Up in the sky
And I will breathe
Clean air
Track Name: Leaving With the Sparrows
I get these pains
Everytime I see you
I can’t be here
Any longer

I’m leaving with the sparrows
I’m going far away
I’m not sure for how long
I might just stay

There’s Green grass down below
I won’t miss you much
Greener fields with no snow
just one more mile

I’m leaving with the sparrows
I’m going far away
I’m not sure for how long
I might just stay

You are in the
Back of my mind
The pains are still here
I need time to forget

I’m leaving with the sparrows
I’m going far away
I’m not sure for how long
I might just stay

I’m leaving with the sparrows
I’m going far away
I’m not sure for how long
I might just stay


Verses - Cmaj7, C, C6
Chorus - F, Am
Track Name: Death Pts. 1 & 2
C-d-e F Em
I am ready to die
C-d-e F Em

Oh hear me lie I am ready to die

G C
There’s carnage in my head
Bdim Am
oh yes I said that you were the source
G C Bdim Am
the spark that set me on fire

I am ready to die
Oh hear me lie I am ready to die

This world is ugly this world is fake
Is there anything above besides the sky’s vicious wake
Is there anything below us other than dirt and graves

I am ready to die
Oh hear me lie I am ready to die

Capo 1
Track Name: Sunlight
when i’m walking on the sidewalks by the lakes in the afternoon being careful not to step on the cracks and crevasses in the pavement, i have my headphones on and much too loud to hear anyone but myself. everything is covered in sunlight s-s-s-sunlight, it doesn’t bother in fact it keeps me company in my loneliness nothing is left but Sun sunlight but sun sunlight, how i love the sun light
