BoyTapestries and drink that flows like tears from eyes that can't see that they're going nowhere, seeing nothing new broken things like broken dreams all underground all the good stuff in the hallway, under the magazines it's a crazy scary thing to be alive but with you all here I might just survive half remembered nights that say i'm not in love, oh i know i used to be a real good kid but not any more i've been taking pills the gaps i fill get deeper and don't think I can keep this going, it's getting boring for everyone it's a crazy scary thing to be alive but with you all here I might just survive I hold the image in my mind It hurts so much that I could cry Every smart boy knows why I hold the image in my mind You can see it in my eyes I'll get better I promise i will try It's a crazy scary thing to be alive But with a little help I might just be fine
Lonelylonely sickly sweet deja vu moves me to tears softly the years go by one more day fades into night is it wrong to be alone can you make it on your own when the seeds that you have sown are not growing dancing through the night with a stranger dressed in white she's glowing, forgiving me for all the bad that I have done I don't want to be alone I can't make it on my own all the dreams that once seemed real are dying the rain falls it's beautiful it's not so bad after all (a song about getting clean and relapse)

Time Well Spent
Time Well SpentWanted to write a perfect 2 minute pop song like 'the letter' Didn't quite work but came out with this.
Follow Your Daughter Into Formaldehyde
Follow Your Daughter Into FormaldehydeI took a trip to my soul to see what I could see but pairs of wary eyes were watching me so I left the place and felt I could never be free. I know just what I should do but I never follow through cos I'm drifting on my cloud and I'll never come down and if it starts raining I'm too high to ever drown. So come on down to my town where the pleasure is all free and if you're feeling down don't worry cos happy pills grow on trees so leave behind your dreams and follow me.
Hearts (or 'the average amount of time a person spends eating a pack of Haribo')
Hearts (or 'the average amount of time a person spends eating a pack of Haribo')Walking back from town His feet don’t make a sound The winter sun is rising He feels the cold and he hates himself for that He opens up his door Creeps along the floor And slips into bedroom Lies beside her and cries himself to sleep ‘What is it this time?’ she thinks Who is this man? Her broken trophy has been buried in the sand Is this every man? Is this all in God’s plan? The late nights and the drinking Is his way of saying ‘I understand’. He looks into her eyes Says ‘I want to die’ I don’t know if he means it He loves her and he hates himself for that What do we have here? A man possessed? Possessed by love and greed and pride and all the rest In the time it took to write this song He could have gone To the mountains of Tibet But the hangman comes instead And he’s gone. (whistling)

This Will Kill Me (demo)
This Will Kill Me (demo)that riff is pretty i think, lyrics maybe a bit cringe/shit idk but i thought the vocal melody was quite slightly good
I'll Be Fine (for mother)
I'll Be Fine (for mother)written for mother
Linctuslittle pop song about opiate addiction.
Junedeleting all the stuff on here that makes me cringe, including the shitty harmony vocals on this
TwentyA couple direct rip offs in there i think. One is accidentally 'hello' by oasis, I imagine the hamonica riff has been done before. idk why I bother making this music, never gonna get anywhere, 4 fun i guess

Not Meant To Be
Not Meant To BeWrote a little love song to amuse myself. Best part is where I light up a cig.
Mirtazapine Dreams (Aileen)
Mirtazapine Dreams (Aileen)Pretty proud of this one. The main chord progression is cool and a bit jazzy and unusual and was written mostly by my friend Alex Kozlov but the rest is all me. Very low quality recording but as usual there is nothing I can do about that :( Kinda dead actually idk
DepressionDrums are shite I know they are only for the purpose of the demo. Picture is a sketch of me driving.
It's All in your Mind Man!
It's All in your Mind Man!I liked the idea of writing a nice little pop song and then recording it really badly and ruining it with interjections that cut through the mix. Idk, a bit of experimentation. Also slightly comical. Recorded using the laptop mic lool
ValiumRecorded this song very quickly after finding that train rhythm. Much more upbeat this one. Poem at end is Days by Phillip Larkin.
Purple ForestA song me and my mate wrote and recorded a few years ago while pretty pissed, turned out pretty good. Friends account: https://soundcloud.com/menzel
Linctus (demo)Little song I wrote. Singing is out of tune I know and mixing is awful but I haven't posted anything in ages so here you go. The quote at the start is William Burroughs saying he doesn't regret his experiences with drug addiction because it inspired him to create art, and as this song is vaguely about codeine I thought it was appropriate.
Nos Cracker Blues
Nos Cracker BluesIt's fairly nice so I thought I'd upload it. Slide played with a nos cracker lool

Coin on a String
Coin on a StringAnother demo, this time with vocals (mixed intentionally low like Durutti Column or something). Sounds way poppier than I had intended. Edit: I know this is p shit looking back. oh well.
