    Includes high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more. Paying supporters also get unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app.

    The Time Waster EP was made to fulfill a part of my BA Music degree. I performed all parts myself, but was aiming for a (hopefully noticeable) "live feel" to meet the criteria of the course.

    As an entirely independent artist, I appreciate any support you can offer. However I appreciate people listening to my music more, so please feel free to enter zero when asked to name your price.

Track Name: Oranges & Lemons
come dance with me beneath the stars
and bring the roaming crown of time
to wander at your side once more
to dream beneath the altar wine

and say that you can see
that one and one is three

so cold succinct divinity
shall play with our minds on the screens
and while we work and slave in sync
the crooked and corrupted dream

is all that you can see
when one and one is three

so follow the lines
we march in time
and crimethink in rhyme
of oranges and lemons


while winston and his julia
will meet in open countryside
we sit and smile and awkward grin
at beaches by the riverside

content that we can see
that one and one is three

and doublethink exists right now
it's wedged inside your rotting head
for consultation of your brain
will leave the broken soldier dead

and everyone will see
that one and one is three

so follow the lines
we march in time
and crimethink in rhyme
of oranges and lemons
Track Name: Oh My
falling fast to reach the sky
faith believes nor questions why
don't know what i'm here to do
don't know why i'm here with you

i'm wasting my time
i'm wasting my time
i'm wasting my time
oh my oh my oh my

if jesus is the one true lord
can buddha have the final word?
if mohammed has got it right
how can i ever see the light?

i'm wasting my time
am i wasting my time
if i'm wasting my time
oh my oh my oh my

some people want to leave this place
we're happy going our own pace
to reach the stars would be untrue
to grasp the gutter's what i'll do

i'm wasting my time
i'm wasting my time
i'm wasting my time
oh my oh my oh my
Track Name: Fly With The Moon
sit and lift the stars with me
if we are the same
i'm on the other side of your mind
come and share a thought with me
come and take the blame
i'm only in your mind

why spend your time
with all these hateful freaks and swine
now they're mine
we own it all and
oh, how could it be
that none of this world was meant for me
come fly with the moon and
it will be

feel the storm above the clouds
keep your window wide
i'm on the other side of your mind
see that candle flicker out
keep it by your side
i'm always in your mind

why spend your time
with all these awful freaks and swine
now they're mine
we own it all and
oh, how could it be
that none of this world was meant for me
come fly with the moon and
it will be

colour in the bloodshot air
fill it in with blue
i'm on the other side of your mind
call the land loud as you dare
call it here to you
i'm forever in your mind

why spend your time
with all these loathsome freaks and swine
now they're mine
we own it all and
oh, how could it be
that none of this world was meant for me
come fly with the moon and
it will be
Track Name: Into The Night
the feared mortality has come
with a crashing in the sky
in mellow voices it has sung
you too now know that you will die

the shattered words ring in your ears
they roll around inside your mind
there's nothing else that you can hear
there's nothing else for you to find

yet i fight for air
as i sink into the night

in exaltation of defeat
a march of over-counted days
the lonely ghosts of all souls meet
beneath the shallow moonlit haze

the reason that we all are here
i wouldn't dare to start to guess
though you may think that it is clear
there's nothing left but to confess

that i fight for air
as i sink into the night
Track Name: Gutter/Stars
one frail hand grips the gutter
one weak hand grasps at stars
i've got one hand on walking
and the other on cars

i wonder whether
i should win or lose
i never know
which way to choose


i could act well-mannered
i could be uncouth
i could play pretentious
i could seem unschooled

would it even matter?
should you even care?
why's the art of music
all gone so vanity fair?


bet you think you're helping
sat there proving the proof
keep on asking questions
i might just tell you the truth

smile away all temptation
watch mistakes being made
low the mighty are fallen
and the humble are raised
Track Name: Six In The Morning
it's six in the morning and it's no longer night
the clockwork is calling me towards the light

the broken lost archangel
has told me all i need
while vagabonds in ecstasy
have nothing left to plead

a triumph of misery can never be right
a trigger of victory is found far out of sight

and while we play our merry games
you struggle and you strive
so come and join our moment
it's time to be alive


with gold crescendo swagger
we welcome you to see
you are nothing but you
and i am only me
