about

The message or intention of EP Volume 1 is to paint a collage of ideas, emotions and rhythms that provoke and excite to move your body and mind.

There are truths to bear, secrets to tell and wounds to heal, I invite my listeners to pull back the curtain and look inside to find the drama that awaits within.

about

Strange Anthem Melbourne, Australia

I’m a songwriter and producer based in Melbourne, Australia.
My stuff is a New Order/Soundgarden dance rock fusion type thing with metal/hip hop and trance undertones. Other influences include Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode, Beastie Boys, The Cure, Metallica, Genesis and The Pet Shop Boys.
I want to create music because I have a story to tell, in this form I can best make a connection with people.

Track Name: Forsaken Love
This Porcelain dream
No depth of sleep can contain
It will break

Such a beautiful thing
So far and few between
That we had

What is said and done
Words that cut like teeth
Draw the line

It must be this way
So you can understand
Hear me now

I lament it
Ashes and dust
Forsaken love
I did it for you
Ooh wah hoo

The passion is lost
No spark and there’s no flame
Fading light

I need air to breath
I’m drowning incomplete
I divide

Please except this
I can’t face it anymore
Emotion amplified
You know why

I lament it
Ashes and dust
Forsaken love
I did it for you
Ooh wah hoo

The damage is done
Can’t rekindle this heart
It’s too late

Your forgiveness is sweet
But the shame is too deep
I decline

I’ve been brought to my knees
By this burden I keep
Let me go

Sealed is our fate
With this crooked kiss
Say goodbye

I lament it
Ashes and dust
Forsaken love
I did it for you
Ooh wah hoo
Track Name: Juggler
I’ll introduce myself
I used to be a chef
I’m done with cooken meat
And my tastes have changed

Was an accident
That befallen myself
Cut me way to deep
Done with fine cuisine

It’s not my dream
Worken as a chef
I ditched that hat
For a different cap

my calling yo
You must understand
That life i had
Was way to bland

You respect me now
Even fear me now
The power I have
Can swing the dice

What’s ya poison dude
Maybe pcp with some GHB
The possibilities

Unfortunately
There’s something yo
Should know about me
I’m just like you (x2)

I juggle a little a this
I juggle a little a that
To sustain my habitat
Understand me
I products to sell
I spin the
Lunatic Carousel
I juggle a little a this
I juggle a little a that
To support my drug habit
Hitting the bricks
For the overtime
No second best
I’m in my prime (repeat)

Dude, now your a monkey
And ya wanna connect
Can feel the panic hit
Without my kit

Always permafried
Why I like your kind
Ditch the lemonade
Goin to keep you straight

Always in my factory
Behind the scale
I’m Cappin it up
For tomorrows sale

It’s so much betta
With my stackola
I’m goin to be bigger
Than Coca-Cola

Unfortunately
There’s something yo
Should know about me
I’m just like you (x2)

I juggle a little a this
I juggle a little a that
To sustain my habitat
Understand me
I products to sell
I spin the
Lunatic Carousel
I juggle a little a this
I juggle a little a that
To support my drug habit
Hitting the bricks
For the overtime
No second best
I’m in my prime

(repeat chorus)

My job’s to drag you in
Escapes the game I’m in
And build the bridge in between
I’ve got you under my spell
Resist it’s futile
You’ve no choice but to feed

I’ve got you under my spell (x2)
Resist it’s futile
You’ve no choice but to feed
Track Name: Dreamer
I wan-na girl
With a hot body
That doesn’t question
My ability
What I deserve
She’s there to serve

I wan-na credit card
with no limit
So I can buy a car
With a turbo engine

There is a purpose
To my desire
Mass consumption
My Speciality
Seething with greed
It helps me breath

Decay
Fray
In my naïveté
Depraved
Slave
I’m just such a dreamer

I think I’m smarter
Than the average punter
Always the lucky hand
A true high-roller
Money to burn
So much to learn

I strike a pose
That can intimidate
Can clear a floor
Got all there is to take

It’s all about survival
Of the strong & Richest
I swear it on the bible
It’s how I claim existence
I know it’s shallow
That’s why I’m hallow

I’m hypnotized
In blissful ignorance
Will it last
This frail illusion
Washed brain
It all seems so clear
Sometimes
I see my reflection
Through the cracks
I see what I’ve become
A charlatan
Product of self-deception
I don’t care
I prefer this fantasy
I can’t live
Without my lunacy
Don’t let it fade
This magic stage
It keeps me sane
I’m so afraid – x3

Betrayed
Faith
It’s all make-believe
Astrayed
Wraith
I’m the great deceiver

Decay
Fray
In my naïveté
Depraved
Slave
I’m just such a dreamer
