about

these are songs I wrote and recorded at home because
1. I still believe in the DIY ethics of punk.
2. My day job takes up too much of my time.
3. I'm too lazy to really care.

Hope you enjoy it.

about

Leigh Hair Byron Bay, Australia

After conceding that Byron bay is full of hippies and a distinct lack of friends to form a punk band....

I'm just going to have to play with myself.

Track Name: The comedown
THE COMEDOWN

HERE WE GO AGAIN,
ANOTHER WEEKEND FILLED FILLED WITH REMORSE GUILT AND SIN.
IT HAPPENS MORE THAN WE LIKE, ADMIT WE'LL PROBABLY DO IT AGAIN. AND MY FRIENDS ARE ALWAYS RIGHT, I'M NOT BULLET PROOF THIS I KNOW. ITS NOT A MATTER OF HOW IT'LL END, ITS A MATTER OF WHICH WAY I WILL GO.

IN THIS CRAZY FUCKED UP WORLD, LIKE CRAWLING ON A KNIFE, AND I DON'T EVER WANT TO COME DOWN. IF I EVER SEE THE LIGHT, I'LL TURN AND WALK THE OTHER WAY, CAUSE I'M JUST NOT READY TO COME DOWN.

GIVE ME WHAT I NEED,
SWEAT THE EXCESS NO DIGNITY. ANOTHER ROLL OF THE DICE, JUSTICE SERVED SO POETICALLY. AND THE MUSIC STILL PLAYS ON, SENSES ARE ALL FADING. THIS TIME I THINK I'M DONE, DAY BREAKING WONT BE BREAKING.

IN THIS CRAZY FUCKED UP WORLD, LIKE CRAWLING ON A KNIFE, AND I DON'T EVER WANT TO COME DOWN. IF I EVER SEE THE LIGHT, I'LL TURN AND WALK THE OTHER WAY, CAUSE I'M JUST NOT READY TO COME DOWN.

CAUSE EVERY NIGHT I TRY TO OUT DO MYSELF. AND APOLOGIES MEAN NOTHING WHEN YOUR DOWN. CAUSE EVERY NIGHT I TRY TO OUT DO MYSELF. PLEASE TELL MY FRIENDS I'M SORRY BUT I'M DOWN
Track Name: Last lager on you
LAST LAGER ON YOU

JUST GIVE ME A REASON GIVE ME EVERYTHING YOU'VE GOT GIVE ME ALL OF THE THINGS YOU ONCE THOUGHT. I CANT STAND AROUND MUCH LONGER IF YOU'RE GONNA MAKE ME PONDER AM I DOING ALL OF THIS FOR NOUGHT. IF I'M NOT THE MAN TO BLAME THEN WHY DO I SIT HERE HEAD IN SHAME IT WAS YOU THE ONE THAT GOT YOURSELF FUCKED. LOOK INTO THE EYES AND SEE A SOUL DESTROYED SO EASILY YOU'RE PRETENDING TO BE EVERYTHING YOU'RE NOT.

BUT AS EVERYDAY DOES GO BY, I STILL REMEMBER. THAT TIME WHEN EVERYTHING WAS FINE, WE RUSHED ON IN DIDN'T TAKE OUR TIME, LOOKING ON IT ALL BACK THEN WE'RE WE EVER MORE THAN FRIENDS? REMEMBER WHEN EVERYTHING WAS FINE, WE RUSHED ON IN, DIDN'T TAKE OUR TIME, LOOKING ON IT ALL BACK THEN, WE'RE WE EVER MORE THAN FRIENDS?

WAS IT CAUSE WE DRANK TO MUCH? OR PERHAPS YOU'RE SCARED OF LOOSING TOUCH OF EVERYONE AROUND? THESE BITTER PIECES THAT YOU LEFT BEHIND FOREVER SIT IN THE BACK OF MY MIND A TRAIL TO WHERE MY PRIDE COULD ONCE BE FOUND. BUT I'LL HIT THE STREET WITH RUNNING FEET, LOOK STRAIGHT AHEAD AND IF WE MEET I'LL REMEMBER YOU'RE JUST A LESSON TO BE LEARNED. AS I FINISH THIS LAST LARGER, TRY NOT TO THINK OF YOU MUCH FURTHER DOWN THE ROAD AS I LEAVE TOWN.

BUT AS EVERYDAY DOES GO BY, I STILL REMEMBER. THAT TIME WHEN EVERYTHING WAS FINE, WE RUSHED ON IN DIDN'T TAKE OUR TIME, LOOKING ON IT ALL BACK THEN WE'RE WE EVER MORE THAN FRIENDS? REMEMBER WHEN EVERYTHING WAS FINE, WE RUSHED ON IN, DIDN'T TAKE OUR TIME, LOOKING ON IT ALL BACK THEN, WE'RE WE EVER MORE THAN FRIENDS?
Track Name: Breath
BREATH

DO WE REALLY CARE OR IS IT JUST EASIER, TO IGNORE ALL THE PLAIN SIGHTED PROBLEMS HEADED STRAIGHT FOR US, IN TO THE EYE OF THE STORM. I CAN'T RECALL THE LAST TIME ANY OF THIS MADE SENSE TO ME.

COME ON UP FOR AIR, COME ON UP AND BREATH AGAIN. WITH EVERYTHING THAT'S THERE.
COME ON UP FOR AIR, COME O UP AND LIVE AGAIN. GIVE IT EVERYTHING THAT YOU CAN.

DON'T LISTEN TO WHAT THEY SAY. DON'T EVEN BOTHER TO THINK ABOUT ITS ALL IN YOUR HEAD, LIKE A BOTTLE ROCKET ABOUT TO EXPLODE. LEAVES A TRAIL OF DISASTER, DESTRUCTION. YET IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL IT ALL MAKES SENSE TO YOU, DOES IT MAKE SENSE TO ME.

K
COME ON UP FOR AIR, COME ON UP AND BREATH AGAIN. WITH EVERYTHING THAT'S THERE.
COME ON UP FOR AIR, COME O UP AND LIVE AGAIN. GIVE IT EVERYTHING THAT YOU CAN.

BEFORE YOU MAKE YOUR MIND UP, REMEMBER EVERY THING’S GONNA BE FINE. JUST SIT BACK AND ENJOY THAT RIDE
BEFORE YOU MAKE YOUR MIND UP, REMEMBER EVERY THING’S GONNA BE FINE. JUST SIT BACK AND ENJOY THAT RIDE
Track Name: Defeater
DEFEATER

STEP BACK FROM THE EDGE, A STEP BACK IN TO REALITY, I'VE GOT REGRETS AND PLACES THAT I WOULD RATHER BECOME WHO ARE GETTING BETTER AT IT EVERY DAYLIGHT SHINES SO BRIGHT BUT IN THE END IT'LL ALL TURN GREY, IT'LL ALL TURN GREY. NOW WE STUMBLE ON TOWARDS OUT NEXT QUESTIONABLE DECISIONS MADE FOR US, CALMS OUR MIND AND PUTS US ALL AT EASY DOES IT NOW , LIKE HISTORY WE'LL FUCK UP AND REPEAT THIS LINE AFTER ME, FUCK YOU! WE WILL NOT BE DEFEATED WE WILL NOT BE DEFEATED, WE WILL NOT BE DEFEATED.
Track Name: Glory days
GLORY DAYS

WITH SUMMER ALMOST OVER I GUESS YOU WON'T BE NEAR, MAKE PROMISES YOU CAN'T KEEP, CANCEL PLANS THROUGH OUT THE WEEK, IS THIS JOB JUST FOR THE DEAD? CAUSE IT SURE IS KILLING ME.

OH GLORY DAYS HOW I MISS YOU. YOU STOLE MY YOUTH AWAY, I WOULDN'T TRADE IT, FOR ANYTHING. OH GLORY DAYS HOW I MISS YOU. 'G' I'LL MISS YOU.

AS TIME MOVES ON FORWARDS, AS IT ALWAYS HAS. GIVES US CHANCE TO RECALL, CHANCES WE ONCE HAD. OF EVERY REGRET, AND EVERY SUCCESS. AND EVERY DAMN TIME, THAT I KISSED YOUR LIPS.

OH GLORY DAYS HOW I MISS YOU. YOU STOLE MY YOUTH AWAY, I WOULDN'T TRADE IT, FOR ANYTHING. OH GLORY DAYS HOW I MISS YOU. 'G' I'LL MISS YOU.

BETTY

IF I EVER SEE YOU AGAIN BETTY DEAR. IF I EVER SEE YOU AROUND, YOU CAN BET MY BOTTOM DOLLAR THAT I'D PROBABLY BUY YOU A ROUND. MORE YOU RAN OF WITH MY BROTHER MICKEY. A PAST I HOPE YOU REGRET, CAUSE YOU ARE MY CHILDHOOD SWEETHEART AND I'VE LEARNED TO FORGIVE AND FORGET. COME AUGUST IT WILL BE 3 WHOLE YEARS, SINCE I LAST LAID LOOK IN YOU EYE. FELT THE BEAUTY OF YOUR SWEET BOSOM AND CARESSED THE WARMTH OF YOUR THIGH.

OH DANNY YOU ARE AN ASS-HOLE AND A LOSER TO BOOT. YOU’RE DRUNK ALL THE TIME, YOU SMELL LIKE CHEAP WINE, AND THE THOUGHT OF YOU DOES MAKE ME PUKE. YOU NEVER AMOUNTED TO NOTHING, YOU’RE KNOWN AS THE TOWN FOOL. YOU CAN'T BARELY TALK, YOU CAN'T BARELY WALK, YOU CAN'T BARELY SIT ON YOUR BAR STOOL.

I'VE FILLED YOU WITH WHISKEY, I'VE FILLED YOU WITH BEER AND CHEAP WINE. NOW YOU’VE HAD YOUR FILL AND ITS TIME FOR YOU TO RESIGN. OH YOU ARE A PAIN IN MY ASS. A PAIN NO MAN/WOMAN SHOULD KNOW. I'LL SEE YOU IN HELL WHERE YOU BELONG.

OH BETTY YOU ARE A HANDFUL, AND A SIGHT FOR SORE EYES TO SEE. WITH MICKEY OUT WORKING THE OCEAN YOU’RE AS LONELY AS YOU’LL EVER BE.
OH DANNY YOU ARE A BASTARD MICKEY BE HOME REAL SOON, SO FINISH YOUR DRINK AND GRAB ALL YOUR THING AND LEAVE THIS FORSAKEN TOWN

I'VE FILLED YOU WITH WHISKEY, I'VE FILLED YOU WITH BEER AND CHEAP WINE. NOW YOU’VE HAD YOUR FILL AND ITS TIME FOR YOU TO RESIGN. OH YOU ARE A PAIN IN MY ASS. A PAIN NO MAN/WOMAN SHOULD KNOW. I'LL SEE YOU IN HELL WHERE YOU BELONG.
