about

Nothing is finished until it is done.

A series of recordings shaped by time, caught somewhere between the forests of Svängsta, Sweden where the songs were first formed and the hills of Teesdale, County Durham where I've resided ever since.

This thing could never have existed without the dedication and commitment of so many friends - limitless thanks to the inspiration and guidance that has made this a reality.

To each of you that read these words and hears these songs, I thank you.
Nice one.

Track Name: Mosquito
Mosquito, you suck on my skin.
Glad that I'm good for something.

Mosquito, you drink up my blood.
Well drink deep until you've drank enough.
And then let me fill your cup,
Shall I break this bread - or just my body instead?

The salt, that you taste on my skin.
And the blisters that I've worn from the beginning.
As I buried my friends, and buried this axe within my head.

You see I'm just splitting logs.
And you say "splitting hairs".
But I say splitting logs - until the problem disappears.
Track Name: Little Car
Little car, I'm breaking down.
Going nowhere, but still dreaming of leaving town.

I'm up on bricks, with the lights down low.
My bag is packed, but I've got no way to get up and go.

Only got myself to blame,
Added up all the mistakes,
It still worked out the same.
I'll be leaving soon my friends.

Wait for sun, wait all year.
Wait for something that won't get close, can't come near.

Sky grows dark, and the land goes cold.
So hold on to memories as if they were precious as gold.

In my mind I've seen the world,
But in truth its just TV
That's filling up my soul.
Is this what happens when you grow old?
Track Name: Conqueror
I came, saw and conquered everything around me.
Loves last endeavour made me fall, the fool.
And I don't want to fall anymore.

Certainties unsurfaced, feet caught within.
A noose that hangs, a devil's snare,
Snaps round my precious skin.
And there you were, caught by snow white light.
You overcame me, like this endless night.

The right to call, cos you never know
The help you'll need to get back home.
A guiding light to hold inside.
A torch to shine out against the darkest nights.

Sticks and stones will break my bones,
But words were not enough.
To keep me still, I'll wait until my eyes start to adjust.

And I hope like hell it all comes back around, because you wont.
And all that love I waste, its true!
I'll just not sit around and get old.
