about

"Have you ever wanted to get up and release an array of awkward sounds and then sit back down quietly? This Musician in england does that for me. Though his music is far from an awkward array of sounds, the lyrics and guitair are clean and simple and frank. Sarcasm that isn't dissaffected, affection that isn't sappy. more apt descriptives that come to mind are: Sincere, Touching & Darkly Humored, though as most things I find intriguing, descriptions only graze what is being described. If you like story telling songs and music that will most likely make you smile- check him out." - NamelessArt.com

Track Name: The Lion
I’m a Lion and my face is like the sun.
My golden hair drapes ‘round my face, hiding my eyes.
Everybody wants my coat, but I’ll bite their head off if they get too close to me.
I make red have a taste.
My mask hides my truth, I’m the cautious feline.
See how I wear my scars to prove myself to the others, so they don’t take my place. Bleed as hope comes and goes. Scents of red hit my nose.
Yeah, yeah.
Track Name: Join us in San Francisco
I found an ocean under my bed as I was tidying up my room.
I stared in shock till a fish came up and said
“Do you know the way to San Francisco?”
After a while I said “No”
And he said “Ok….I am going to go that way.”

So there we were, just me and this fish swimming our way to America,
Talking ‘bout books, music and films
Can you believe he hadn’t seen ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’?!
We were surrounded by sharks impressing their friends,
And I’m not ashamed to say I was scared, till one came up and said:
“I know the way to San Fransisco”

So there we were, just me, and this fish, and this shark heading to America.
When we got hungry we stopped at a café to eat. We’re all vegetarian(s).
I called my mum to tell her I was fine, and that she could join us anytime, she liked.
We’re on our way to San Francisco.

So we arrived, under the Golden Gate Bridge, on the shores of America,
We rode the trams, became hippies, tomorrow we’re going to Alcatraz.
Come and join us in San Francisco
Come and join us in San Francisco
Come and join us in San Francisco
It would really be such fun.
Track Name: Birthday Wishes
Sending you this card shows how much I care,
So happy birthday, happy birthday.
You probably won’t hear from me till next year,
So happy birthday, happy birthday.
Merry Christmas.

You see, I care for you, I really do, I sent £5.
Happy birthday, happy birthday.
And though we’ve never met, I’ve heard that you are quite nice.
So happy birthday, happy birthday.
Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, Merry Christmas, Happy Easter.
Happy everything, that I’m going to miss in the next year,
I might even die, so I better say to you.
Happy birthday, happy birthday.
Happy birthday, happy birthday.
Track Name: Kicking Shins
With your tongue entwined with his and my soul entwined in yours,
I gotta say I don’t see this being a happy ending.
‘Cause when you’re lying on his bed, I’m only lying to myself,
when the truth is, that, without you, sex gets a little harder.

And I’m trying to find the humour in me, but I think I’m failing miserably.

But give me a string and I’ll string myself up, give me a ribbon to tie in your hair.
Oh, I really want to.

And I want to see your lover, and kick him in the shin,
I want to throw dust up in his eyes and hide.

Then I’ll grab you by the arm and take you to a desert island,
and we’ll act like monkeys in the trees; form a nudist colony; play at being birds and bees; ‘cause I’m trying to find the humour in me.

I think I’d like to find myself, might decide on something else.
I think I’d like to find myself, I might decide on something else.
I think I’d like to find myself, I might decide on something else.
Track Name: Once Upon a Frog Song
Once upon a time, long ago, I met a girl who lived in a fairytale.
She grew her hair, and threw away her shoes, just to meet a man.
So when he arrived at her door with her shoes in his hand, she let him in.
She put on the shoe, and the shoe fit, but not for long.
So she tried again, and tried a different approach.
She decided to eat a poisoned apple and fell asleep for a hundred years.
She woke up with a kiss from a dashing prince, just like she dreamed as a child,
And for a while it was perfect,
But she became restless, and wondered whether this was the one,
So they soon parted, and she went back to being on her own.
Sometimes, she said, she wondered whether she would ever find her true love,
And I said maybe, just maybe, you should try a Frog.
‘Cause these princes, they don’t satisfy you.
Track Name: Another Cup of Tea
I once had a girl but then she died inside my head,
only to come back to life again and break up with me instead.

So what do you say to a man with no head?
and what do you say when he says all love is dead?

So now I walk around for no reason,
I’ve got nothing to be said, I can’t read what’s meant to be read.

What do you say to a man with no head?
and what do you say when he says all love is dead?
“Would you like another cup of tea?”???

I can’t keep dreaming the same thing as the other part of me.

So what do you say to a man with no head?
What do you say to a man with no brain?
Can’t you see how he is very empty?
“But would you like another cup of tea?”
What do you say to a man with no head?
And what do you say to a man with no heart?
“WOULD YOU LIKE ANOTHER CUP OF TEA?”
Track Name: I Need Another Guy
I, I need to find myself another guy
I need somebody who won’t make me cry, cry
I, I want somebody to hold my hand and tell me that they understand
Even if it’s a lie
So take me home, and up to bed,
'Cause I feel so alone inside this head.

Eeeeeeeeee! Oh c'mon, c'mon baby teeeeeeize me,
Oh c'mon, c'mon baby teeeeeeize me,
E.E.E!

Keep, oh, keep, oh keep, oh keep me till the dawn,
Oh, keep, oh keep, oh keep me till the dawn,
Oh, keep, oh keep, oh keep me warm.

It's easy, just like A.B.C.
Just like 1.2.3.
3.3.3

It's a 3. It's a 3. It's a my disease.
Track Name: Both the Characters are Dead
A girl lies on her bed inside her room inside my head
She falls asleep and disappears and builds a body from my tears
Here she stands in front of me, her lines are blurred and watery
She cannot read or act her part, an empty soul, an empty heart
The words distort, mutate and change
This play I wrote is not the same as it was inside my head
Both the characters are dead
And bored of playing games
Reverse our roles we're still the same

So with a sigh I wave goodbye and wait until you're out of sight
'cause till then I know I'll be just stuck inside this misery
So tear my heart, let blood flow, and where I die Angel's will grow
From the seeds that you have sown
Into my seems
Into my bones
A girl of stone
Track Name: Couchsurfer Jamie
I met a girl
We held hands through the night
She told me how she nearly stabbed and killed someone and nearly went to jail
Simply because the light seemed right

We fed the birds corn which hadn't popped
And talked about post-modernism and the wars and how they'd never stop
'cause the universe is violent

Oh Jamie, Jamie it all seems the same to you
There are no separations at all
But for me all I see are the segrations and the isolations that this world seems to have put on me

So we have agreed not to talk for a year
Whilst living in the same apartment and speaking in ways which nobody can hear 'cause words have been prohibited

She juggles glass in ways I hadn't seen
But I can't remember if it was her left arm or her right arm which she said needed practice

Oh Jamie, Jamie it all seems the same to you
There are no separations at all
But for me all I see are the segrations and the isolations that this world seems to have put on me
Track Name: Helium Girl
I held you down as you filled up with Helium.
I tied string 'round your swollen feet and let you go.

Helium girl, don't go too far.
Wherever you go I'll pull you back.
Helium girl, don't go too far.
Wherever you go I'll pull you back.

You can't answer my calls anymore. There's no signal in space.
So I talk to you through this can in my hand, but your feet are all I hear.
So I pull you back down, taking care on the re-entry.

Helium girl coming back tomorrow.
Track Name: Firefly Suicide
I was once a firefly, but I felt so suicidal.
I dressed up in a suit and tie, still, no-one noticed.
So I decided I would kill myself or die trying.
So I took a book from off the shelf and read all the ways of dying.

I decided I would burn my house, until the fumes sent me to sleep.
So I lit a fire with my ass and waited to fall asleep.
Flames were dancing all around (they must've come here from Brazil)
But I was too pre-occupied with suffocating in my sleep.

I'm not dead, yet.
My wings are burning.
My head is burning.
I think I'm burning.

I'm burning.
I'm burnt.
Track Name: Lay your Arms Down
Now the war is over we can lay our guns down slow,
Upon the bloodied bodies lying stiff, decayed and cold.

Under my feet I feel the years,
Under my feet I feel the tears of a thousand souls.

So light another candle for the dead that we lay down, and stand out in the rain.

Wash my hands and body,
wash my hands and body,
wash my hands and body
Again.

..Cause my soul is heavy but my boots keep walking.

The blue skies will rise over the dead that we lay down,
And their hearts will shatter,
and their parts will scatter into a million other things.

By my hands I killed a man,
By my hands I
Track Name: My Apology
I wish I hadn't been born x3
In Transalvania

I wish I hadn't been caught x3
Stealing blood-bags from the Hospital

But you won't accept my apology
They won't accept my apol-o-gy

I can't see my face x3
'Cause my eyeball can't be displaced

I can't see the Sun x3
'Cause when I do, my skin, it run.

To see the Sun be shining over the blue sea, it make me happy x2

I wish I had been born in
Cal-i-f-orn-i-a
Track Name: Mother Julia
mamma Julie, wouldn't wanna dissapoint ya
Track Name: 3:33
Keep my feelings down, hide them away whenever you’re around
As I feel my breaking heart you just smile and laugh

So my love I cannot stay, ‘cause this pain won’t go away
So I leave and I pray for you to follow and not turn away
Track Name: I Fed a Fish
I fed a fish so much that it died. I guess you could call it love.
And I hit a girl and made her cry, so it must be love.
I tugged on her hair like I was the moon and she was the tide, but it wasn’t enough.
'Cause she ran around and kissed all the other boys and called it a game.
She once kissed me in line at lunch time on the cheek, and made it real clear that all I would have to do is ask.
But I cared so much that I couldn’t try, so I just walked away,
Over the ocean, over the sky, and over her heart.

As we got older things started to change, like our smell.
So we became distant, drifted apart, and lost ourselves.
But somehow I got washed up on the same shore as her,
And we spoke like two children into the night.

I fed a fish so much that it died. I guess you could call it love.
And I hit a girl, and made her cry, so it must be love.
I tugged on her hair, like I was the moon, and she was the tide, but it wasn’t enough, ‘Cause she ran around and kissed all the other boys, and called it a game.
Oh, what a cruel game.
So I keep on, keep on, keep on, spinning this wheel, all the time for you.
I keep on, keep on, keep on, spinning this wheel, all the time for you.

She looked so good on that fateful day in her dress.
She leant into me, and I felt the flame burning in my breast,
And I swear that I could feel it too burning in her.
But her words cut like daggers into my soul, her eyes were swords, when she said:
“It’s now too late, we can’t kindle the flame of our love.
You see, I sleep on another lover’s bed.”

I still cared so much that my mouth turned dry, I didn’t know what to say.
So we agreed to stay friends, and went on our separate ways,
Over the ocean, over the ocean, over the ocean.

I fed a fish. I guess you could call it love.
Yeah, I fed a fish, and it died
