about

An endurance challenge album. December 2013, I challenge myself to produce a brand new track each day for at least 12 straight days. Whatever I manage to make each day is the final track. Trying to raise money for the foodbank by getting others to pledge based on my final track count.

Track Name: Hanging From Both Arms
I am hanging from both arms
Got an itch on my nose
I would let myself fall but
I got no where to go

I am lying through my teeth
To myself I know
I could the tell truth but I
I got no where to go

I am hanging from both arms
Could you scratch my nose
I would let myself down but
I got no where to go

I am walking down my street
It's a place I know
I would run away but I
I got no where to go
Track Name: There Was No Choice
Coming from the sky
Light into our minds
And now we see how
There was no choice

Summoned to destroy
Thoughts they fall apart
But we can see now
There was no choice
Track Name: pretentious and Loving It
I smashed my sense into a million pieces
I'll never find them again
I won't even look for them because
I like it better this way

I could try
But I won't try
I will die
But don't you cry
I could try
But I don't try
I will die
But that's just fine
Track Name: Part By Part
A person comes home
They don't know where they've been
They look in the mirror
They don't know who they are
They check their phone
There's one message waiting there
They push the button
The message starts to play

There was never anyone from the start
It comes together, slowly part by part

This same person
They're getting a handle
There was no mystery
Only the perceivable truth
They leave their home again
They walk out into the street
There's people everywhere
The person begins to shout

I was never anyone from the start
I put myself together, part by part

Today it
Will open
Tomorrow
Track Name: Disassembly
I take my face off when I go to sleep
Just to remember what it's like to be me
I put my eyes in a case by my side
I see the darkness opening wide
I put my heart in a case on the shelf
I watch it pump, outside of myself
I leave my brain in a box on the floor
Where I'm going I won't need it anymore

You take your face off when you are alone
Just to remember where you came from
You drop your eyes in a glass by the sink
You see the noise that you make when you think
You place your heart in the cupboard below
And you watch as it starts to slow
You lay your brain in a bowl set aside
You won't need it where you're going tonight
Track Name: No Body
If I was just an arm without a torso well I could still wave to you
And you'd come over take me by the hand just like you know I want you to
If I was just a mouth without a face well I could still call out to you
And when you're close you'd hold me to your ear and then I'd tell you what to do

But I don't want to have a body now
I want to go but it will hold me down
And when I think of all I'll never do
Oh I can blame that on my body too
Yeah I don't want to have a body now
And I can't fly cause it will hold me down
And when I think of all I'll never do
Well I can blame that on my body too

If I was just an eye without a skull well I could still gaze unto you
And I would never have to miss a single thing that I know you do
If I was just a soul without a home well I could still live here with you
I see no better way to be together than by making one from two
Track Name: Monster
You were the monster in my dream last night, you had
the coldest eyes they were devoid of life, and I
I could not run from the shadows you cast, and you
were all the skeletons from my past, and I
I collapsed running into the sand, and you
You took me up in your demonic hand, and I
I started crying like a hopeless child, and you
You just held me in your arms a while

I was the monster in your dream last night, I was
A horrid shell only in for a fight, and you
You could not run and I was everywhere, and I
twisted your arm and I did not care, and you
You cried out to try to reach my heart, but I
I was a monster I had no such part, and I
I smothered you under my feathered limbs, and you
You went silent, you accepted it
Track Name: From Your Eyes
We had a fight
It wasn't right
But what can I say
It's out there now

Tiny words are falling your eyes
I can read them as they hit the ground
Where they assemble into your truth
And everything that you couldn't say
Becomes so much clearer
And now I know just what you mean

I didn't mean
The things that I said
But what can I say
It's out there now
Track Name: I'll Be Here
Waste my time
I don't mind
It's just fine
In my mind
I will live
Many years
Waiting here
I'll be here

And
You'll
Know
Just where find to me
When
You
Figure it out

Check the time
It's alright
Only five
You look surprised
I can wait
For time to break
I'll be here
I'm always here
Track Name: i just don't give a %@#*
I'm not giving up
I just don't give a %@#*
I'm just having some fun
Cause I don't give a %@#*
Track Name: Living for Promises
He is waiting for his body to break
When time comes knocking at his door
Cause they promised he could leave this place if
He was a good boy

She is waiting for her heart to break
Under the weight of the world
Cause they promised she could leave this place if
She was a good girl

I'm just waiting for my mind to break
When I can't take it anymore
There are no promises I'm looking to have
Lived my life for
Track Name: Casualty of Culture
Everybody's lookin out for themselves
Gotta make a home to hide away
But maybe they just don't see
They're gonna be a casualty
Of this culture

Oh, well it's gonna happen
It's gonna happen
They don't know it's gonna happen
Cause I guess they just don't see
They're gonna be a casualty
Of this culture

Inside the belly of the beast
How can we not be
A casualty of this culture

Lock your doors, close your blinds
Keep that world away, oh
But baby you just don't see
You're gonna be a casualty
Of this culture

Oh, I've seen it happen
It's gonna happen
It's gonna happen
Cause baby you just don't see
You're gonna be a casualty
Of this culture

Watch as your neighbours they fall prey
And your city goes astray
And you're all content to stay
In this culture
