Don't Know 02:23
I just don't know what I want to do I'm falling I'm losing track of time Wait a minute what damn time oh shit I slept til 12 again I'm awake not like it fucking matters Cause every day's the same I got 2 choices I can get out of bed or Piss the day away Piss the day away I don't know what's up or down What's evening or what's day I can't tell what day it is And it always feels that way I have a breakdown right before I leave the house I guess that's nothing new I pace around the room and hold my breath Until I'm almost blue When I come home I wash my hands til I've nearly washed right through You say if I got out there I may lose my life Well say hello to my reality Say hello to my reality I can't tell what's up or down What's evening or what's day I can't tell what day it is and it always feels that way

This is the age This is the time Of widespread panic Uncertain if we're gonna survive Temperatures climb The world is coming down and it's burning now in front of our eyes They let them die No hope of an escape And they're murdered like flies Now's the time If we wanna change we're gonna have to give them a fight And if we don't do something Then there will be nothing left And so I'll be screaming Til' there's a hole in my chest Now's the time Do or die To change the course we're on If we're gonna survive I'm inclined Not giving up Got so much time that's left of the line Don't wanna die Without leaving a scratch on their face Now's the time For a fight And you can cut us down but there's no way our ideas will die And if we don't do something Then there will be nothing left And so I'll be screaming Til there's a hole in my chest Left unchecked for too long And it spread like a rash Now I am once again asking Not to vote for the fash

Have you had enough yet Do you like what you see You're only satisfied until you've seen inside of me and What will it fucking take What is the cost You only push and pull until you see what I'm made of As a minority what keeps me going is sheer force of will Minorities we know the fear of being fucking killed You're on your last legs Your bell has tolled Your time has come and all the whining's getting old Don't you fucking talk to me about injustices The only way I'd listen is if you'd been through the same shit As a minority what keeps me going is sheer force of will Minorities we know the fear of being fucking killed

Another Day 02:27
5PM that's where my day used to end Now they come and go Restlessness my brand new friend I sit and wait Waiting for anything How long will it take When will this nightmare end Feeling so close but so far away Waiting won't hurt for another day Exactly how much can I take Staring so blankly out at the sky Thousands of hours have passed me by Couldn't look away if I tried It's that time again Time without any end Too much time to spend Thinkin bout why I am Will the world need me When we're back to reality Do I deserve what I got With so many people lost Feeling so close but so far away Waiting won't hurt for another day Exactly how much can I take Another disaster another day Figures are higher than yesterday I'll sleep the horror away 5PM that's where my day used to end Now they come and go

about

NEO27

There were no plans to write and record new material during the year of 2020. After my previous release, I put together my band "The Seething" comprised of myself and 2 other incredible musicians, Haydn & Ashim, who were excited about the prospect of going into a professional studio and re-recording our favourite songs that I had already written. We had scheduled the recording sessions for April. Obviously this did not pan out.

Locked inside my apartment for days on end and placed into furlough for upwards of 3 months, There was nothing to do except pick my guitar back up and write some new songs. Songs to stave off the boredom. Songs to help process everything that has been happening. Songs to hopefully one day look back on and remember how surreal this whole experience has been.

We will eventually make it to the studio but for now, Here are 4 songs written during government imposed lockdown.

Wash your hands, Wear a mask, Distance yourself from others.

Stay safe out there.
