about

I am so very proud of this. So much work and time has been put into this album. It will remain one of my greatest achievements.
So, I called it "All Change" because it kind of represents a lot of change in my life, I wrote many of the songs when so much stuff was changing, also, I spent plenty of time on trains.
But like any change, now that it's done, it's happened, time to find the next platform.
All Change.

Track Name: Nine-Nine-Nine
You're running around, all around me
You're kicking up dust you aim to blind me
Now I've had enough but now I can't see
You're gone with a poof it seem you've succeeded

Call the police
They're in for a treat
Everybody come and see

Dirt in my eye and yet a search still
You're in a disguise, oh god I feel ill
You hand me a pie and a porcupine's quill
Goes right in my eye, ow my eye...

Excuse me bro but would you happen to know
How I can stop these continuous prose
I just goes to show that if you make some dough
You can go with the flow

Call the police
They're in for a treat
Everybody come and see

Do you think that I can use this quill to kill a man
If not I'll collect opinion from your dear old Gran
She knows all about murder weapons

Call the police
They're in for a treat
Everybody come and see
Track Name: Rush Hours
This air is killing the hour turns to hours
More and more, I want to see it all devoured
It it creeping up, quickens it's pace
Trace it's intent to a familiar face

Am I in your way? Or are you in mine?
Priority is not the first thing in mind
I just want to get home and I'm about to just
E-X-P-L-O-D-E
Explode

Seed is planted by those we know
Yet it is watered by those in control

You've tracked in mud
All on the rug
That's quite enough
Don't get it trampled in

You can always clean it up if your quick
But if not we all have to live with it

Am I in your way? Or are you in mine?
Priority is not the first thing in mind
I just want to get home and I'm about to just
E-X-P-L-O-D-E
Am I in your way? Or are you in mine?
Priority is not the first thing in mind
I just want to get home and I'm about to
Explode

I'm all on the windows and in the cracks in the seats
All in your car and on your friends and on your dog and on your wife

Calm right down
Take a breath
Don't you see
They want you dead

Loads to do it's not like we can change it
Well I guess we could but the loss is way too dangerous
Someone one day will take the job
Let's hope the generation can take it on

Not like me when I explode all in your car
And on your friends and on your dog and on your wife
Life.
Track Name: Gems
Protecting him is
All we seem to find ourselves
Doing these days

Teaching him is
Frivolous he'll never understand
The lessons

Should we just
Trust a little more

I guess we could
Tell little bits and pieces
But hide a few

Suppose you like
Divulged everything to him
Would he want to fight
Beside us

Should we just
Trust a little more
Can we just
Trust a little more

The value I place on my sword
Inspire him to become more
We don't know what we're doing wrong
Is this how she would raise her son?

We try

You know we can't keep him safe forever
We cant keep him safe
You know we can't keep him safe forever
(But that doesn't matter to us, we'll keep on trying)
We cant keep him safe
(But that doesn't matter to us, we'll keep on trying)
Track Name: Sit Down
In the thick of it now, you're in a thicket
The diesel dripping down in your food
Quick to get off the mark, that's the ticket
Better redeem it now to cut the cue

The fun that he's been feeding you
Will you regret it?
Now I won't take you for a fool
But you don't know

They're patronising, oh it's tantalising
You got to get yourself more of this so you go
Into the kitchen, this is what you're missing
And woah, how you've frisked it not just coyly kissed it

Hey now, slow it down, you feel that feeling?
It's got you on the ground, you've got everyone reeling now

The fun that he's been feeding you
Will you regret it?
Now I won't take you for a fool
But you don't know

It's coming back to you
It's coming back to me
It's coming back to all of us eventually

The fun that he's been feeding you
Will you regret it?
Now I won't take you for a fool
But you don't know
Track Name: Kings And Winners
Trying to force out words
Anything will do in this situation
Small talk isn't my best trait
As of late, it's felt like no one's wanted to be here

Going over gonna end up doing
Something I will regret in the morn

I don't care about your work
No disrespect intended
It's just that if wanted to know
About civil engineering I would've looked it up

But you just keep talking
You're not backing down
Why don't you just stop?

What's going on? Are we checking in?
I forgot my baggage I'll be back in a minute
Can't you just quit it?
What's happening? Are we checking out?
This was way too expansive and I doubt
The good it did us, we're still not kings or winners

Anyone for free soap?
Wrapped and never opened?
How about a sachet of coffee or tea?

You know you shouldn't be acting like this in a public place

What's going on? Are we checking in?
I forgot my baggage I'll be back in a minute
Can't you just quit it?
What's happening? Are we checking out?
This was way too expansive and I doubt
The good it did us, we're still not kings or winners
Track Name: FFS
I know that you know
I'm splitting at the seams right now
No matter how much we patch me up
The stitching will just come back out

And it's not your fault or your decision
There's nothing to add, there's nothing missing
Yeah you're trying so hard to make a change
But there's nothing doing, for fuck sake

Does the pope shit in the woods?
Do I know what will happen next?
So much is going on
I'll keep acting hard and I'll hide that stress

And it's not your fault or your decision
There's nothing to add, there's nothing missing
Yeah you're trying so hard to make a change
But there's nothing doing, no, there's nothing doing

And it's not my fault or my decision
There's nothing to add, there's nothing missing
Yeah I'm trying so hard to make a change

Kiss me again before you leave
Miss you just like the last time
Drift further and further into these dreams of
You who never leaves my mind
Have a look and you'll surely find
Me kissing you before you leave
Track Name: Lukewarm
Lukewarm beer is turning my vision here
Into a complicated array of colour
People into objects, objects into people
Your dresser is dressed as your significant other
And your brother seems like he's got a lot on his lampshade mind
Forever beside himself when he's being unkind
To him the lights are limes
Track Name: Interstellar Dollar
All this tech you'd think we've
Become part of film or TV
People talking to robots on their phones
So they don't feel as alone

Without ground to stand on
Where will we admire ourselves from?

Interstellar travel and digging up fuel
Solids to gases to power our tools

Oh my dear Siri
Could you tell me, just tell me please
What do you think of this society?
'Cos I think it's a bit shit, come on now, don't be a tease

Without ground to stand on
Where will we admire ourselves from?

Interstellar travel and digging up fuel
Solids to gases to power our tools
Soon our Earth may be just air
And we will float upon it
Is this easy enough for you?
Have you found your solace?

She likes my songs
That's all that matters to me
My music and her
And of course, yeah, there's money
She likes my songs
That's all that matters to me
My music and her

She likes my songs
That's all that matters to me
My music and her
And of course, yeah, there's money
And without these things
Where will I go?
I don't know
Track Name: 25
I'm just a child you see me looking for someone to be
I probably should know my place by eighteen
Yet I'm already pretty sure of what I see
When I look in the mirror

I see me staring back
The fuck you looking at

People telling me how they think I should live my life
Where do you see yourself when you are twenty five?

I see me staring back
At those suggestions
I've always knew
They were out of the question, the answer is so clear it's arresting

I will be where ever I am at the time
My situation it can only improve and you knew
All along you don't need a path or a plan
To know you're in the hood of the man

I will be where ever I am at the time
My situation it can only get worse and you curse
The guy who said that you must fight or fight
Who knew he'd end up being right

Sure I won't have a young persons rail-card
When I'm twenty five
But that's fine

I will be where ever I am at the time
My situation it can only improve and you knew
All along you don't need a path or a plan
To know you're in the hood of the man

I will be where ever I am at the time
My situation it can only get worse and you curse
The guy who said that you must fight or fight
Who knew he'd end up being right
Track Name: All Those Who Are Able
Float on up just let them rise and
All the things that you're despising
Will be gone before you know it
Out of planet into orbit

Like your addiction

Forget, relax, go do yourself
Release, attack, vital brain cells

And your indecision

You and she and him and they will
Dance and smoke and drink mind the spill
Every minute, every second
You spend thinking is time wasted
Have a feeling then it passes
Are we drinking? Raise your glasses

To your addiction
To your indecision

Do you think this disposition makes you bold?
Give up on all the dears that you hold
All those who're willing lose control

Up and up and down and down and left and right and left and right and B and A and Start
You can't cheat your way past this
Track Name: Could Be Worse
Out after dark, all alone and your phone is dead
All these terrible thoughts running though your head
Night is time for monsters, evil and dread
But it could be worse, you could be

Skipping along when you fall and you graze your knee
Surrounded by people but no-body hears your plea
All look through you, not at you, it must be dream
But it could be worse
Oh it could be so much worse

Everybody's dancing, everybody's laughing
But you're stuck outside with no money
You thought you had friends but for their own ends
They toss you aside with a smile full of glee

The house is your's and you give them your guarantee
There home will not be used for a house party
But you do and it's wild and it's crazy
But it, well that sounds pretty swell but

They get back and you've just finished cleaning up
The knick of time they give a kiss and hug
“We're so glad we can trust you our estate”
And the guilt rots your soul and you're never the same

Everybody's dancing, everybody's laughing
But you're stuck outside with no money
You thought you had friends but for their own ends
They toss you aside with a smile full of glee

There all full of it
They won't toss me aside again
I will have my revenge
They'll never see it coming

The club was great but they need to feed their bellies
And there you are holding burgers all topped with cheese
They pounce on them and don't even say sorry
They choke and die and you whisper revenge is sweet
Track Name: Times New Roman
Leaving me notes yeah
the words that you wrote read
Like more than words to me
Emotional is how I would be seen
Noticing the new file, how long has this been here
Has it been a while
Woah there friend, take note of what's within

Oh I did indeed enjoy the times new roman
Linking back to inside jokes we have and are holding

Copy across no
I don't need that go
Into the recycling
I don't need what I can just get again
Scrolling down to the bottom, oh would you look at that
I'd nearly forgotten
Don't you go anywhere near the bin

Oh I did indeed enjoy the times new roman
Linking back to inside jokes we have and are holding
Track Name: The Fire Across The Road
Your home is now just bones
The glow of the floodlights as darkness takes it's hold
Flickering blue, who'd knew
Your neighbors we all watch you fall

What would you have saved if you'd have known
Do you value a guitar or are photos more your song
Such a waste all happening with haste
Consumed your life and all

Now where do you go
Do you have family shelter or are you all alone
I hope you can claim back all the earthly pain
But the sentiment is up in smoke
And it's ash inside your walls
Track Name: In The End
Did I push myself too hard?
Can't deal with the shame
Tried to do it myself
To be a household name

Am I who I say I am?
Should I be someone else?
Bury those memories
I choose my own self

Chest is tight as anything
Just take their help

I'm sorry I'm not doing more

Go home for now
Be with your flesh and blood
Had enough of trying
If I could do more I would

The stress is baring down
Breathing getting fast
Skin is flaking up
But I'm used to this it's just how I get

Chest is tight as anything
Why can't you just take their help
Stop being so proud of yourself
Why must you be so proud?

I'm sorry i'm not doing more

Pitiful words
Pitiful feelings
I should be better

Longing to stay, to intoxicate
I can't feel your weight, you're too far away
Just tell me to stay

I will do well at some point
And I'll feel it hopefully

Have I lied so much, so well, that I now believe myself

I'm sorry I'm not doing more
I should be able to feed you at least
Don't say that you don't need much to eat
Please don't make yourself ill for me

I'm sorry I'm not doing more

Longing to stay, to intoxicate
I can't feel your weight, you're too far away
Just tell me to stay
