On My mind

'Wrong or Right EP' out 3 Feb: Available on iTunes now.


Forget original sin.

I’m gonna eat that fruit from the Tree of Knowledge.

A desert road from Vegas to nowhere.

Something Right

Dark clouds spell the end of it all
Heartbeat says the sky’s ‘bout to fall
Can’t walk an inch cause it shakes through my chest.
Bringin’ up pains I can’t stand to confess
King of the road
King of my fears
Killing myself just to feel that I’m here

So deal me in and I’ll play the game
Until the day that I stake my claim.

No wall, no limit
On the edge of nothing I don’t know
Can’t fall - I’m in it
One more day’s enough to take control

I wanna do something right.

Heaven opened and the sky turned red
Storm gathers up inside my head
Temptation tryin’ to steal my grip
Got me running got me losin’ it
I’ll walk the line
I’ll have no doubt
I’m fallin’ in before I fade out
Father, father is my soul redeemed
Now I’ve cleared my conscience and I’ve cleared the scene.

No wall, no limit
On the edge of nothing I don’t know
Can’t fall - I’m in it
One more day’s enough to take control

I wanna do something right.

Mind

24 hours ago I was ready to lose my mind. I guess art just gets you that way.

I’ll do what you like if you’ll stay the night. You tell me you don’t think you should. You do that boy.

—Years and Years

Thought: “We”

If I see one more YouTube/twitter/tumblr comment from a young western black person saying ‘when we were slaving/being whipped/sat in the back of a bus’ I’m gonna lose my mind.

WE haven’t SLAVED for anybody.
Have you? Who was your master? At least I know I haven’t.

Gah.

I’ll say it again - send me to Mars. The sane of us here on Earth are few and far between.

LYRIC: Pray For Love

kwabsmusic:

It’s safe to say we made it
Along the path we tread so well
And the shades we use to paint it
Can’t start to show our lives parallel

Eyes to the ground
We watch our feet
We’re a little bruised and battle-worn
But the walls they built to keep us
Cannot shield our storm

We prayed for love
We prayed for love

We prayed for love
Someone in the distance
Who will listen
Listen to our breaking hearts

We prayed for love
Someone in the distance
Who will listen
Listen to our breaking hearts

Pray for Love.
Written about that time when I really, really needed to.
