about

Sometimes desperate and sometimes defiant, ‘Some Thing’ interrogates some big political ideas from an acutely personal perspective. Mental health and relationship issues open up into wider questions about alienation, borders, complicity and control.
It draws together different musical influences in a way that reflects this collision of ideas in the context of a culture that feels increasingly less human.

Track Name: Slug
Back into the sludge
There's less of me now
Less human somehow
Void of empathy
Void of energy
There's less of me now
Less human somehow
The air is stale and thick with sleep
Black mould rises all across the sweating walls
The borders close, defences rise
Hear no warmth in how some humans are described
These are the walls these are the words
I can see them forming blocks around my days
Go through the motion with no emotion
(Where are you now, lost in this fear
run to nowhere, nothing is clear)
These are the walls these are the words
I can see them forming blocks around my days
I won't fear life while I'm alive
Even as the colours melt into the grey
I've gotta go, I've got to get up and go
Track Name: Protagonist
He wants me to be strong
Enough to hold him up
But not down by his wrists on the mattress.
I'm not your manic
I'm not your manic
I'm not your manic pixie dream girl
He wants me to remain
Hey girl don't change don't change
Don't grow don't grow
Stay here stay here
Be something for me to return to
Something
Some thing
Some
Thing thing thing thing
I'm not your manic
I'm not your manic
I'm not your manic pixie dream girl
I'm a protagonist
Suck it
I'm a protagonist
Deal with it
Protagonist
Antagonist
I'm not your manic
I'm not your manic
I'm not your manic pixie dream girl
Track Name: Separated
Have we lost our patience yet
Have we lost our memory
Have we lost visibility
Have we lost our memory
Are we tied to convenience
Have we lost our energy
Have we lost our patience yet
Have we forgot history
I lie awake and grow older
I close my eyes to be here
I lie awake I am old now
I close my eyes and I fear
We are all complicit
Say take it back
They defend terror
Constant attack
Drain and distract
Noone reacts
My breath contracts
Don't let ideology erase reality
Say take it back
They defend terror
Constant attack
Drain and distract
Won't let ideology erase me
Have we lost our patience yet
Have we lost our memory
Have we lost visibility
Have we lost our memory
Are we tied to convenience
Have we lost our energy
Have we lost our patience yet
Have we forgot history
I lie awake and grow older
I close my eyes to be here
I lie awake I am old now
I close my eyes and I fear
Say take it back
They defend terror
Constant attack
Drain and distract
No one reacts
My breath contracts
No one reacts
No one reacts
