Mostly uses feelings from fictional characters due to lacking emotional turmoil, mysterious past and interesting love affairs.

today in my life: an art essay has made me have an existential crisis, and I never changed out of my pyjamas

You’re looking at me from across the kitchen table,
and I’m wondering if it’s too soon.
And you’re hiding, it’s okay, I’ll see you when I’m able to,
so as it stands, I cross the room.

I hear you breathe, it does nothing. I hear you keep on breathing in.
I hold your hand, I feel nothing, and yet we keep holding on and on and on.

And then the Earth breaks, and how the hell can I complain?
It’s a gift that I will take if I’ll never feel again.
Another time, another day, this emptiness is on it’s way,
but here and now you’re here to stay with me.

When you wipe this mask off your face, I’ll watch you
listening to your defence like poetry on paper.
You’re reaching, it’s okay, I’ll reach right back out too.
So, as it stands I’m holding on and on and on.

Yet another fan song for ‘In the flesh’! No more on the way, I don’t think.

little reminder that most of my parents and their friends only had a vague direction of where they wanted to be in life when they were in their early twenties and didn’t find what they wanted as their ‘career’ until they were early thirties so there is no pressure to find ‘the job for you’ whilst you’re this young and its ok to just go with whats fun right now because you have years to sort this out and nothings to stop you changing later in life anyway

I got lost once; in my dream
I had these antlers holding me.
I knew his name, I knew his name,
but I had to wake up again.

Follow me, Hounds, I’ll lead the way.
I want to find another place.
We can walk out. We can walk out
and watch the boat rising on the waves.

I took a step back, I took a deep breath,
I locked myself out, I couldn’t say it.
I see the gold swing of another death;
I take a step forwards and a deep breath.

I reach out, “This is my design.”
"I don’t know how he does it this time"
He’s making angels out of mankind.
I need an anchor, not another fire.

He isn’t ‘justice’, he’s just dying,
"This is my design", am I crying?
"I can’t do this, I can’t do this."
I need the sea now, don’t put me through this.

I took a step back, I took a deep breath,
I locked myself out, I couldn’t say it.
I see the gold swing of another death;
I take a step forwards and a deep breath.

And I’m sorry you thought you could help.
And I’m sorry you thought this was my hell.
And I’m sorry that I can’t sleep well.
I’m sorry. I’m just sorry okay?

Brother, I’m gonna be with you until the end of the line.
And you once said it too, and look at me, I’m fine.
So hit me in my heart, hit me where it’s gonna hurt.
If you know me, then maybe you know it’s something I deserve.

Look me in the eyes and tell me you don’t know my name,
I’ll buy you a drink and we can laugh on this one day,
'cause you know me? Yes, you know me?
So meet me in the future, and we can be the same.

Can you hear my voice? Do you want all this to stop?
I would stop your shoulders shaking, but it seems that you forgot
that you know me? Yes, you know me?
So meet me in the future, and I’ll tell you what you’re not.

Drop your gun down at your feet, I’ll let you strike my face.
There’s another dream to dream, so go and dream another place
where you know me? Yes, you know me?
So meet me in the future, where we can afford our grace.

I’m gonna be with you until the end of the line.
Though I’m in pain, I’ll see it through, keep this promise of mine.
So hit me in my heart, hit me where it’s gonna hurt?
If you know me, then maybe you know it’s something I deserve.

A project that has been very dear to me has finally finished; an album of Supernatural fan music on sale. I only hope that this endeavour might be met with some of the brilliant enthusiasm I’ve been shown this past year. 

crowreycrowrey asked: On a scale of 1 to HOLY SHIT YOU'LL LOVE IT IT'S MY FREAKIN FAVE, how much priority should be given to watching In The Flesh?

Well, I watched it all in two days and then wrote two pretty darn good songs off the bat. I’ve never managed a good song from Sherlock, so that says something.

And obviously there are:

> Canon gay/queer/not straight characters. It’s not made a big deal of (they’re not flaming stereotypes, but actual people, which is great), but it is acknowledged and suitably present for representation. They hold hands, they kiss, it’s canon, it’s happening and helps actively shape the plot.

> Complex female characters. That are well fleshed out (ehehe) and you know, people. They get just as much development as the males and it is just as significant.

> Clever parallels between the Risen and Jews in Nazi Germany. Some people have theorised parallels between the AIDS crisis as well (though I’m not knowledgeable enough to write at length on those). But yeah, there’s a meaty bite of this show addressing discrimination and oppression, and how it’s impossible to vilify and condemn such a huge portion of society without, you know, masses and masses of problems.

> It’s an interesting take on the zombie apocalypse, and specifically trying to get on with life afterwards. Specifically emotionally repressed Brits. 

> Shows mental illness as something that can happen to anybody, and portrays it realistically. The living, the dead, the heroes, the cowards. Nobody is ‘normal’ in so much as nobody can be. It’s developed, it’s talked about, it’s not belittled and it’s relevant to the narrative as a factor known to effect a character’s behaviour. 

ALSO it’s not even that long a series, there are only two; as I said, you can get this done in two days. Here is where I watched it, I assume the links are all still working.

Priority level: HOLY SHIT YOU’LL LOVE IT IT’S MY FREAKIN FAVE

I wish we could be calm again under the moonlight,
the church bells calling, and the wind
calling me closer still. I’ll tell you “It’s alright.”
So breathe for me if you will, oh and we will rise.

I’ll take your hand in mine, lead you to my graveside.
I’ll look in to your eyes and I’ll, I’ll tell you everything.

I’ve always got to leave this place, I’ve always got to stay,
but I looked for you everywhere when you went away.
I would hide my ashen skin and curse my empty veins.
Gentle, you are beckoning to show my bloody stains.

And though we rage, rage for this, put your hand into a fist.
‘Cause I was born again when you kissed me.

Quick fansong for ‘In The Flesh’. I watched the lot of it in under two days and wow.


What am I doing with my life?

As you know, I’ve recently been pushing for all my followers to purchase Gazers, and there has also been an absence of any new songs.

That’s because I’m working on a new selection of songs, a new album, that will be exclusively for sale once complete.

Unfortunately, that’s slow going now term has started back up! I’m starting off an art foundation course in London, and it’s been very exciting so far. So, if you’d like to support me in another little way, it would be wonderful if you could leave constructive criticism or, in fact, any interesting feedback you might offer on my course-mandatory blog!

Of course, it’s a way for me to improve my art, which is where my career is (hopefully) headed. And with week-daily updates, you’ll get to know just why no songs have come your way recently!

Though I fully intend to bash off a few quickie acoustic recordings so you’re not left completely without :D

Have a good day!
