about

Recorded in the summer of 2007 in Vancouver BC, with producer Matthew Rogers, 'Princess of the Skies' was my debut release and an introduction into my heart and music. A profound learning experience and the whole process of recording, releasing, touring, really benefitted me in the sculpting of my sound. It was well received by critics and a representation of my musical self, and I admit a way of finding out exactly who I was as an artist and which direction my voice and style should go down. It's an ever evolving process that I believe will continue for the rest of my days, I look forward to my next release 'The Truth' a high energy rock record full of honest, and emotional words and performances from myself and some of my closet and most talented friends!

Track Name: Slipping Away
Slipping Away

I remember I was 12 years old
The world was simple no one got old or died
Nobody Died
An Uncle passing and a Grandfather too
It made me realise there's nothing we can do about life
Just don't waste time

We all know it's slipping away
We all know time's slipping away for good

I'm wasting time when I'm standing in lines
Or I'm waiting for a doctor to tell me I'm fine and why
Cause we're all scared to die
Undecided about what would be worse
Being caught on a freeway or pushing up dirt oh boy
You might ask why

We all know it's slipping away
We all know time's slipping away for good

I'm twenty five I don't want any kids
This world is crowded enough as it is and when
There's so many other lives to save
We get unhappy and everyone hurts
When life gets hectic we're turning into jerks oh boy
What's going on here?

We all know it's slipping away
We all know time's slipping away for good
Track Name: Turn To You
Daydream night falls in between
I'm doing my best to stay clean
I try to open up my mind to all kinds of thought
But when I opened up my eyes and bullshit was all I saw

I don't why you keep asking me about all my flaws
There's way too much selling out to get one shitty job
When the world can get no colder
I can only turn to you
Cause when it all falls down baby I still have you

Some day's I don't feel like I can
A woman's heart helps me to understand
But it's eight or nine times till I eventually think she's right
Cause I'm too much of a man to admit that I am not

I don't know why it takes so much for me to give in
There's only so much holding on till you start to spin
I don't know what you see in me
But I hope that it's the truth
Cause when it all falls down Baby I still have you
Track Name: Remedy Girl
You're my remedy girl
My bottle of pills
My prescription love
For the pain that kills
All the love in my heart
And deep down in my soul
You're my remedy girl
I'm hooked on you for sure

Your all I need, your all I need
To get me by, oh yeah your all I need

You're my remedy girl
When I swallow you down
Your love drug kicks in
Turns the pressure down
Form this cruel world
You heal me and elate
You're my remedy girl
The only drug I take

Corporate medical world
Is all hit and miss until I'm loving my girl
No doctor's pills
Could take away the pain like the feel of her touch

You're my remedy girl
My vitamin kiss
My Paxil china doll
How can I resist
All your Ativan charms
Keeps my level head
You're my remedy girl
Without you I'm dead
Track Name: Down Down Down
Hey mamma there's a war outside
It's time to be on our way
I hear the rockets piercing the clouds
Our homes are coming down, down, down, down, down
Yeah mamma we'd better watch out
There's soldiers everywhere
Everyone has got fear in their eyes
And the sky is falling down, down, down, down, down

Every night I'm watching people die
Guns pointed at their heads
We're pulling triggers till the bullets fly
And we all fall down, down, down, down, down
No enemy on the run
No monsters under our beds
Dollar bill is going to fuel this war
Till we all fall down, down, down, down, down

There's nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
If you want to save your life
You better get out, get out or die

Yeah mamma there's a war outside
It's time to be on our way
Everyone got the fear in their eyes
And the sky is falling down, down, down, down, down
No enemy on the run
No monsters under our bed
Dollar bill gonna fuel this war
Till we all fall down, down, down, down, down
Track Name: Last Breath
A mother's child in her arms
Last breath death of a charm
She went quietly in the afternoon
The father cried tears on her crown
His baby girl fought hard and proud
Now she's the princess of the skies
And a bad dream that came to life

So unexpected
So unexpected
So unexpected

When a young life ends
There's a world outside they don't want to face
It's lost it colour to a dull shade of grey
It's hurt you can't repair
Every inch of their tiny house
Is a memory of her and the trouble she'd cause
There's laughter amongst the tears
Track Name: Revolve
There's all these mornings I don't get out of my bed
I stay in all day with the thoughts inside my head
There like rusty gears that keep on spinning round
There's all these people I keep trying to avoid
Their sorrow faces get me so annoyed
Got me frowning even when I crack a smile

There's people everywhere
But we can still be alone
I get all tense anytime I say hello
In love extraordinary lives can get tough
Days will disappear into another year
Spinning round a star

There's a million faces with a million hopes and dreams
And plenty of wolves that are dressing up like sheep
To devour you prey on you when you're weak
Were all surrounded by loneliness and despair
No one's human anymore but no one seems to care
Life's become surreal like pictures on a screen

(Chorus)

We've all been lost and couldn't be found
A stranger's hand could lead you home or hurt the ones you love the most
