From Across The Way
From Across The WayThis songs been a long time coming. I was really wanting to make some heavier music and I'm really proud of how it came out. Massive thanks to James Burton and James Wrigley of Hoffen Productions for making it sound the way it does. They wrote all the lead guitar lines, the drums and the bass, along with all the mixing and production, would not be the same without them. This was inspired by one of my favourite bands Arcane Roots, their melodic prog sound is just amazing. There's definitely some BMTH influence in there too. I hope you guys enjoy. Lyrics: I miss you But it's a dull aching boredom I would not issue To anyone, are you listening? Over there the grass is glistening And the flowers bloom is spades And I am planted in the soil Over years the roots have coiled Up my legs and now they cover my face But I still make out your shape And your lips, how they taste As I long for you from across the way. Are we really, are we really alone? Would you tell me? Please tell me let me know. And I want you And I need you You're a bible, I'm a Shepard of faith But I'm here with no trace And the aching it stays As I scribble my guts onto the page. We can share a mattress on the floor if you like Spend our nights under an attic sky light. And I still make out your shape And your lips how they taste As I long for you From across the way.

Insomnia - 2016 Version
Insomnia - 2016 VersionAfter 'Insomnia' was played by Adam Walton on BBC Wales, James decided to update the mix which fitted well with the rest of the Characters EP. Massive thanks to him because I think this mix sounds fucking awesome.
Wide SmilesFinal track on the EP, influenced by memories and stories from summers in an attempt to write something positive. Lyrics: Drive Drive along Driving with my friend in his Audi a1 Around tight bends on country roads Roll In the summer sun Open windows until the smoke is gone With spirits high, am I on your mind? A bonfire and a fifteen crate Pretty little snowflakes on my pallet Chewing gum and eyes dilate You and me falling off the planet Smoke In their lungs Pretty boys with clouds rolling off their Tongues You And I alone Staring at your lips telling me that you’re glad you’ve come But I was hoping for a little more But I was hoping for a little more A bonfire and a fifteen crate Pretty little snowflakes on my pallet Chewing gum and eyes dilate You and me falling off the planet A bonfire and a fifteen crate Pretty little snowflakes on my pallet Chewing gum and eyes dilate You and me in a fucked up state If the universe were to implode You’d still have my hand to hold And if it collapsed in your mind In my arms you could hide
Lucid LucySecond track on the EP, major influence from Alice in Wonderland while writing this track. Lyrics: Looking pretty, feeling young Searching for something to slip under her tongue Keeping a tab on the scars that she’s got She’s going on a journey; oh she’ll be seeing stars After this, she should think nothing of Falling down the stairs because she’s tripped enough I think it’s kinda like, it’s like her kryptonite And nothing quite compares to what she sees at night Her world could be a wonderland It’s as crazy as it seems but it’s all she has Spinning and swirling Her mind is twisted and twirling But nothing is real So she keeps on moving No matter how gone, Freedom is where she belongs She put the key in the lock And she opened the doors Her world could be a wonderland It’s as crazy as it seems but it’s all she has Her world could be a wonderland It’s as crazy as it seems but it’s all she has It’s all she has It would be nice for things to make sense, for a change Her liquid lover Spread across the sheets Of a pull-apart bed On which she feels safe
Insomnia"Transfixing and very beautiful" - Adam Walton, BBC Radio Wales, 30/05/2016 So I wanted to try something a little different for this one, I was really into The 1975 and Melanie Martinez at the time of writing/recording so I got a lot of influence from that. Also I was having a really bad period of not being able to get to sleep. I actually wrote a lot of the lyrics whilst in the shower one morning. I recorded this with James over Christmas which he helped me so much with, he's been super busy so he hasn't been able to mix it until now but I'm so happy with it. Thanks James. Lyrics: I feel a rumble as we struggle with the hard shoulder My head is on the dash and i think we're rolling over To the other side of my bed, There's a headlight in my eyes, can't get you out of my head Oh, that pillow saved my life in time for one more restless night I hope she'll catch me every time. Spring into action as we fall into airbags Suspended in motion, moving thoughts of all we have Alack of all emotions taken by my slow erosion Colliding with decisions which we have no control in Oh, that pillow saved my life in time for one more restless night I hope she'll catch me every time. Sirens, oh my ears ring, I feel numb 'cause I'm not sleeping Insomnia ain't a bitch, she's just a girl that i've been seeing She says she has big dreams for us, I can't recall the meaning Underneath my eyelids it brighter than the darkness I am seeking Oh, that pillow saved my life in time for one more restless night I think she'll catch me every time. She says the she looks after me and I've started believing 'Cause my not-so-conscious conscience constantly keeps my lungs breathing But as I rest my head I notice we are dripping, bleeding Something tells me I was at the wheel and now I'm on the ceiling Oh, that pillow saved my life in time for one more restless night I know she'll catch me every time. Oh, that pillow saved my life in time for one more restless night I guess that corner caught me by surprise.
Contagious AttractionOriginal song, major thanks to James Burton for recording, playing drums, mixing and just generally making it sound so much more awesome then it did before. It's obviously not perfect but I am rather proud of it considering It only took a few hours to record. Feedback welcome! LYRICS: you don't have to go home, at least I wouldn't be alone. And I would just sit here, and wait for your call. I know I'm not the best but, I'm sure as hell I'll try. Put myself to the task for, the rest of my life. I know I've got regrets and, should probably leave you alone. But please don't make me sit here, you don't have to go! Inhale, exhale, I'm breathing in air that carries your disease, If I go faint, or I grow pale, you know I've breathed you into me. So if I asked you to stay, would you go anyway? And if I asked you to go, would you leave my heart alone? Cause you're the virus in my blood, the voices in my head, The poison in my lungs,It's you that makes me sick. So if you take away this pain, then I'll have nothing left, It's you that keeps me sane, you're the reason I take breaths. So when I ask you to stay, won't you stay? wont you stay? Inhale, exhale, I'm breathing in air that carries your disease, If I go faint, or I grow pale, you know I've breathed you in... Inhale, exhale, I'm breathing in air that carries your disease, If I go faint, or I grow pale, you know I've breathed you into me.
