about

I wrote and recorded this album from the start of March. After making my E.P I wanted to challenge myself to produce a whole album in a month, while I was a little later than that I am still proud of what has come out of it. After being away from music for so long, the support of everyone has brought me back and I've enjoyed every second of sharing this music.

'Out To The Unknown' is a rock album at heart with some influences and flairs thrown in. My main inspiration for this album was Paul McCartney having loved his debut 'McCartney'. The rough cut style made me believe that I could make something similar and I went for it.

Track Name: Between It All
I can't pick a side.
It's something that takes you longer than your first day.
Open your eyes.
Why are you blind to everything that's going on.
Make up your mind.
Is it me you're impressing or are you holding onto something else.
Forget about pride.
This is making the world see I can do better, if I try.

Between it.
Between it all.
Between it.
Between it all.
Between it.
Between it all.
Between it.
Between it all.

I'm not on my own.
Everyone's there to help me on a bad day.
Get down from my throne.
I'm not the greatest person in the damn world.
Don't have to be shown.
How to live my life the way I want to.
I cannot condone.
Waiting for things to go ahead and make themselves.

Between it.
Between it all.
Between it.
Between it all.
Between it.
Between it all.
Between it.
Between it all.

SOLO

Between it.
Between it all.
Between it.
Between it all.
Between it.
Between it all.
Between it.
Between it all.
Track Name: Melancholy Monday
I'm gonna seek it out.
Say words I can't keep in.
Come crashing right on time.
Regretting everything I've done for while.
Done for while.

You've met me haven't you.
I'm overcompensating.
But keep my head on straight.
We just might be friends for a while.
Friends for a while.

I'll try and seize the day.
Is that what Horace said?
The sun is going down.
And I can only work for a while.
Work for a while.

I start a million things.
You think I'm bad now.
But I can love it all.
If you let me stay for a while.
Stay for a while.

It's a melancholy monday.
Been the longest week I've ever had
It's a melancholy monday.
Get through this time, it's not that bad.

Stare at a silver screen.
Get what you paid for.
Is it that difficult.
To keep your eyes transfixed for a while.
Fixed for a while.

I'm watching everyone.
Could there be hope for.
All of the ones who go.
And take a dive for us for while.
Us for a while.

I've got it all locked down.
It's what it feels like.
To get it done just fine.
And take a long term break for a while.
Break for a while.

I'll miss you honestly.
You're what I worked for.
Only to get replaced.
For what I'll get to see in a while.
See in a while.

It's a melancholy monday.
Been the longest week I've ever had
It's a melancholy monday.
Get through this time, it's not that bad.
Track Name: Long Blue (Journey)
Let me show you who I want to be.
Give the reasons why I care.
Down and up is just not good enough.
I'll be happy when I'm there.

Cus' two and two, won't come in hand.
If no-one starts it, it won't be there.

Chase the person that I'll never be.
It's not a goal you can just buy.
Be the people that you wanna be.
Let them tell you, you can't try.

Cus' two and two, won't in hand.
If no-one starts it, it won't be there.

BREAKDOWN

Cus two and two, won't in hand.
If no-one starts it, it won't be there.
Track Name: On The Rooftops [Interlude 2]
On the rooftops, running high.
On the rooftops, running high.
On the rooftops, running high.
On the rooftops, running high.
On the rooftops, running high.
On the rooftops, running high.
On the rooftops, running high.
On the rooftops, running high.
On the rooftops, running high...
Track Name: Mess Of A Mind
I've been feeling this way.
For a long long time.
Can't shake it, no can't clean it from me.

Racking my brain.
Thinking back to the days.
Making a living on a family crowd.

Thoughts about how
You won't see me now
Hiding at home in an empty room.

I've got a mess of a mind
Gotta find me a guide
No-one teaches you to handle this.

Feeling lots of numb confusion.
Feeling lots of numb confusion.
Your numbers up and it's time to make sense now.
Feeling lots of numb confusion.
Feeling lots of numb confusion.
Your numbers up and it's time to make sense now.

Let me free up some space.
Take you into the place.
Where you feel most uncomfortable.

Bet you were kind.
Before you saw all the signs.
The ones that were forcing you to run away.

Beg to me, plead.
Tell me what do you need.
Breaking the one that lives outside of you.

Leave in peace.
Get me out of this leash.
Free me from having opportunity.

Feeling lots of numb confusion.
Feeling lots of numb confusion.
Feeling lots of numb confusion.
Feeling lots of numb confusion.
Feeling lots of numb confusion.
Feeling lots of numb confusion.
Track Name: A Tale Of The Sad Individual
Woke up, struggled to the bathroom.
The mirror feels twice as high as did before.
Down steps, I get another headache.
Nothing that a little bit of light medication...

...can fix. Gone in a glassful.
It's the only remedy that doesn't seem to argue back.

Just taking it slow, one day at a time.
Claiming everything that's mine.
You wanted to know, so I spilled my mind.
Told you all I could find.

These days, I feel a little lonely.
Talking back to voices that are waiting on me miles away.
And yet, it doesn't help the feeling, searching for another reason not to go outside...

...breathing in the air waves.
It's never that it's raining I just never get the nerve to go.

Just taking it slow, one day at a time. [Low note, high note riff]
Claiming everything that's mine.
You wanted to know, so I spilled my mind.
Told you all I could find.

It feels like people have it worse now.
I know that I'm screaming it out loud.
Who cares if the fiction falls through.
I would never lie to all of you
Track Name: Open Eyes, Still Sleeping [Interlude 3]
Open eyes, still sleeping.
Don't wake me up, not at this time.
Open eyes, still sleeping.
Don't wake me up, not at this time.
Track Name: Routes
I've been mistaken again.
Taking the high road.
Making this all about me.

Setting the trends.
Taking the spotlight.
Making it over and over now.

Tell all your friends.
Feeding my ego.
Feel like the only one to ever know.

Some would call it the end.
But it's just getting started.
Not like it's easy to throw it all away.

Gotta make it matter to you yeah.
To you.
Gotta make it matter to you, matter matter yeah.

Woah, woah.
Woah, woah.
Woah, woah
Woah, woah.

Your words are all very kind.
I hope that you mean it.
Really it fuels the fire in me.

I've been hoping to find you.
Where have you been for.
The times that I needed you most of all.

She said that you weren't there.
And it hurt my feelings.
How can they know when you are deep inside.

Wanna stand by my mind.
But I just tell you sorry.
Wait for it all to blow over now.

Gotta make it matter to you yeah.
To you.
Gotta make it matter to you, matter matter yeah.

Woah, woah.
Woah, woah.
Woah, woah
Woah, woah.
Track Name: Who's There?
Someone.
Gave this to me.
Something.
Won't go away.
Please don't.
Leave me this way.
I'm broken.
Shattered in to, pieces.

Don't waste.
The chances to fix.
Your problems.
And leave it all up to you.
Here comes.
Another attack.
Who's there?
Is the only thing left to say, out of fear.

I know there's nothing there.
But I still feel it catching me.

Someday.
These feeling will leave.
My brain.
Will have a calm holiday.
You help.
More than you know.
I'm broken.
It'll take a long time to heal, these deep scars in me.
Track Name: All Things Come To An End
Wake up, look where you're going.
Your head is in the clouds and it's showing.
Gotta start thinking, where you'll be.
In 5, 10, 15 years, what do you see.

I know it's just like losing a friend.
But all things come to an end.
They gave me time, but what does it mean.
You can't believe in that which can't be seen.

You're dreaming of fame and fortune.
You can get it all, given the chances.
But slow down, please take it easy.
Such a task to take, you'll love it completely.

I know it's just like losing a friend.
But all things come to an end.
They gave me time, but what does it mean.
You can't believe in that which can't be seen.


(All things)
(It's over, It's over now)
