about

My second solo album showcases a deeper side of my musical mind. I dwell on very personal issues such as the hardships of love and heartbreak, the despair and impending sense of death related to it. There are lighter topics too such as the longing for happier times as a young boy and the innocence that is associated with it. I also dwell on topics such as the fear of dealing with the future and also the fear of dying. There are some heavy and spacey instrumental pieces too to add variety to the album. I decided to name it "Melancholia" due to the overall melancholic vibe of it.

Track Name: Grey With Hints Of Blue
When I was a young boy
My heart broke in pieces

Twenty years later
The rest had all turned grey

I tried to change
but all my feelings were
different shades of blue

The rainbow teased
But that just wasn't me
I know who I am

I suffered in all possible ways
It couldn't get worse

Grey is my mind
Grey is my light
Grey is my life
With hints of blue

All I ever had
were red plastic lips with painted smiles
I didn't matter
How pretty their fucking faces were
One night stands
Never made me feel good at all
I never got it
And still I haven't got anything

Grey is my mind
Grey is my light
Grey is my life
With hints of blue

When I go to my bed
I think of you and then smile

I wish I was someone you could love
But I am who I am

Don't hate me please
It's not my fault the way things turned out

Keep the good times
We spent together when things were good

I'll see you again
in my grey dreams with hints of blue

Grey is my mind
Grey is my light
Grey is my life
With hints of blue
Track Name: Pure
​Many years ago
When I was a boy
I had a precious soul
Untainted by the world

You could feel
The happiness
Reaching out
Filling space

An angel pure

Buried in the soil
Was a metal box
All the things I loved
Are sealed forevermore

Now I see
A shadow
My former self
Is gone

An angel pure

uhhh
uhhh
uhhh
uhhh

Sometimes I wish for
My innocence to come back
Back when I was young
And everything was so new

You could feel
The happiness
Reaching out
Filling space
Reaching out everywhere

An angel pure
Track Name: The One I Love
​I feel the sun again
warming up my skin
Awake in dreams
So real
I wish it never ends

Ahhh (x4)

I see your face so pale
Smiling innocence
It makes me feel so good
Your laughter in my head

Ahhh (x8)

You call my name so softly
A whisper in my ear
Your deep brown eyes
Make me feel
So loved inside my heart
Track Name: Chest Pain
​I think you are not
Cut out to be here
So sly
So sly

I think you are not
worthy of my time
you liar
you liar

I feel the burn inside
this chest pain
won’t go away

I think you are just
waiting for the time
to fly
to fly

I think you are just
planning for a way
to escape
to fade

You toyed with my soul
You toyed with my mind
You toyed with my heart
You toyed with my life

Stay away from me
Track Name: The Face Of The Void
​Down here
Away from the sun

Inside
A blackened soul

Infected
Corrupted
Addicted
To a nameless vice

The face of the void
it swallows all hope
The face of the void
it feeds on your soul

Down here
Away from the sun

Outside
A shadowy ghoul

Infected
Corrupted
Addicted
To a faceless crime

The face of the void
It swallows all hope
The face of the void
It feeds on your soul

Track Name: Nebula II
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Alternative #6
​Exit mind
Soon to be
Blind and lost

Dead end near
Going down
Through the sink

Adrift
Trying to understand

Are we good enough
to live without worrying much?
Without pain?
Are we good enough
To face our most dreaded fears
Within?

I’m looking for the answer
In alternative #6

Exit life
Soon to be
Pale and cold

Silent fear
Filling up
The thick air

Adrift
Trying to understand

Are we good enough
to live without worrying much?
Without pain?
Are we good enough
To face our most dreaded fears
Within?

I’m looking for the answer
In alternative #6
Track Name: To Be With You
​When I look at you
I don’t know how to feel
If I smile at you
I don’t know how you’ll take it

If I was
Someone you could love

And be
Be with you
And be
Be with you

There is something about you
I haven’t felt in years
And it’s good to know
I’m not dead inside

But you’re not
Feeling the same way

To be
To be with you
To be
To be with you
Track Name: This Word Called Love
​What is this word called love
a word that can bring so much joy and happiness

What is this word called love
It can turn your life from bliss to misery

What is this word called love
My life was ruined almost twice by it

What is this word called love
My worst sorrows in life are all caused because of it

I can’t stop loving
I can’t stop loving
Curse this agony
Curse this broken heart
It might end up killing me

What is this word called love
A word that’s filled with hope and dreams

What is this word called love
A word that’s filled with sadness and pain

What is this word called love
A word that’s filled with rage and despair

What is this word called love
I’ve seen my life withering away

I can’t stop crying
I can’t stop crying
Curse this warm feeling
Curse this sense of longing
It might end up killing me
Track Name: I Don't Hate You
I wish I could’ve done something
I wish I could just understand
How things went to Hell
Just overnight

I can see you felt just left aside
I can see you felt just waiting by
For me to change, For things to change
To no avail

I just saw your face of worry
I just didn’t try hard enough
For you not to be, For you not to feel
Unworthy

And I did some terrible things
And my stupid pride got in the way
And I carried on being myself
And I saw you just slipping away

But I know
But I know
You don’t hate me
And I know
And I know
I don’t hate you

You treated me like a real man
You were in love and so was I
But things just started, to fade
Into dust

I gave you my whole heart and even more
I made you laugh and I made you cry
But somehow I stopped making you feel
Like a woman

You had to endure my stubbornness
You had to deal with my bipolar mess
But you had your own troubles in your mind
It made you unhappy

And you said some terrible things
And you made me feel so low
And you just couldn’t understand
And you saw me just fading to black

But I know
But I know
You don’t hate me
And I don’t
And I don’t
I don’t hate you

I think about you everyday
I keep myself from calling you
To let you be, to let you see
You're free

I still have your pictures with me
I keep them under my bed
So I can keep your memories
Close to me

I'm at peace with the way things are now
I won't force you to be with me
Because time will tell If we can be a couple
Or just friends

And I know
And I know
You don’t hate me
And you know
And you know
I don’t hate you
