about

An eclectic collection of acoustic melodic indie rock. As opposed to (Shade), the songs on this disc (ahh, remember those days?) are lighter in tone.

We recorded, mixed and mastered these songs entirely on an iPad Mini. Thanks for listening.

Track Name: Schadenfreude Junkie
I’m a schadenfreude junkie
It's all about me
I'm a schadenfreude junkie
It's all about what I want to see

The sweet taste of watching
Those crumbling walls
They're yours they're not mine
So I don't care at all

Well I know it's wrong
But it feels so right
In others struggles
To take such delight

Delicious downturns
A falling from grace
Delicious downturns
Just puts a smile back upon my face

I’m a schadenfreude junkie
Paying at the gate
Salivating for
The cruel twist of fate

Well I know it's wrong
But it feels so right
In others struggles
To take such delight

Stripped back, laid bare
The side we try to hide
The side we try to hide is always there

I'm a Schadenfreude junkie
Just like all the rest
The only difference is
I just confessed
Track Name: Apple
I didn't believe before
But now it's fair to say I do
There's a place in my heart
A little part I put aside for you

You've given me so much more
Than you take and I am thanking you
There's a place in my heart
A special part I put aside for you

To come to realise
We're only ever really passing through
And while we're here we might
Just as well
Just as well
Enjoy the ride that much is true

Sweetest apple of my eye
Sweetest apple of my eye

Forget about settling scores
When no other made me think like you
There's a place in my heart
A little part I put aside for you

I'ts rare that I'm seen to show
How I feel, but when it comes to you
There's a place in my heart
I'm prepared to let it shine for you


To come to realise
We're only ever really passing through
And while we're here we might
Just as well
Just as well
Enjoy the ride that much is true

Sweetest apple of my eye
Sweetest apple of my eye
Sweetest apple of my eye
Sweetest apple of my eye
Track Name: Last One Left
Always there for parties and stags
Glue that binds together
Been that way forever

Sordid yarns of sundry slags
Holding court for hours
Tales of superpowers

Tarred with the same brush
No one thinks that you're in a rush
But no one wants to be
The last one left in the pub

Down in one to all the applause
Revel in bravado
You're Gorka Pintado

So much time on your hands to kill
Idle thumbs in action
Devil's found some traction

Tarred with the same brush
No one thinks that you're in a rush
But no one wants to be
The last one left in the pub
Track Name: Race To The Bottom
Understand what you see
Isn't quite what it's all cracked up to be
Underhand behind the scenes
We are fed what they want us to believe

Where are we going?
Where does it end?
Race to the bottom
That's where my friend

They'll scratch his he'll scratch theirs
In good time they'll have it all carved up in shares
It's a game that you can play
Entry's free except for those who cannot pay

Where are we going?
Where does it end?
Race to the bottom
That's where my friend

And I just can't abide
By all those lies
I hear and see
No I just can't abide
By all those lies
They're killing me

Gravy trains delivering pain
Stop to dump their load and soon set off again
All the sheep must be blind
Red top propaganda rules their hearts and minds

Where are we going?
Where does it end?
Race to the bottom
That's where my friend

And I just can't abide
By all those lies
I hear and see
No I just can't abide
By all those bloody lies
They're killing me
Track Name: Fairweather Friend
You're having a laugh and enjoying the craic
Throwaway lines never meant to offend
Living is easy when you got no ties now
Seems Peter Pan is alive and well

At heavy times you run a mile
You turn your back and you're gone again

Fairweather Friend
All I want to say is that
You burned your bridges
Fairweather Friend
All I want to say is that
You burned your bridges here

Always the one to play the part of the jester
Goofing around they're eating out of your hand
But everything changes when the chips are down now
You make your excuses and you're never around

At heavy times you run a mile
You turn your back and you're gone again

Fairweather Friend
All I want to say is that
You burned your bridges
Fairweather Friend
All I want to say is that
You burned your bridges here
Your bridges here
Your bridges here
Track Name: I Think I Found It
I think I found it
That special place you keep inside
For all the love that you never show
And you never will
You tried to hide it
Buried deep within your heart
But I found a way
To get inside
And to make it mine

Don't be afraid now
I can ease your pain
Breathe me in now
I'll always be with you
To the end

I think I found it
That special place you keep inside
For all the ones you resent the most
Whose smiles are forced
You'll never tell them
Just how much they let you down
And the pain they caused
Because they only care
For the things they do

Don't be afraid now
I can ease your pain
Breathe me in now
I'll always be with you
To the end

I think I found it
That special place you keep inside
For your deepest fears
And all the pain that hurts the most
You'll never tell me
Just how hard it was to pretend
That you were strong
And to carry on as if nothing's wrong
Track Name: Blind Eye
It's a fucked up world we live in
To serve the one percent
Where all the odds are firmly in their favour
And if you want to put your head up
Above the parapet
You are going to have to sign a waiver

Everyone's too busy
To try and get there first
But no one seems to quite know where they're going
All our heads are down
Engrossed within a screen
No one's ever interested in talking

Turning in on ourselves
We're all turning in
In on ourselves

Keyboard warriors shouting
Shouting at a screen
And disappearing into an empty void
Everything is anger
Or everything is smiles
Middle ground dispensed with, where's the joy

Turning in on ourselves
We're all turning in
In on ourselves

The power and the glory
The Doc who sets the scene
Knowing they won't see the bigger picture
Everyone's a cog
Designed to turn the wheel
Of ignorance that feeds the ugly creature

Turning in on ourselves
We're all turning in
In on ourselves
Track Name: You Know I'm Right
The world it owes you nothing
Why is that so hard to see?
Don't waste your time in wondering why
The truth will set you free
I don't care for your latest scheme
Save your breath why not just come clean?

Caught you with your pants down
You knew you were bang to rights
So I put you back in your box
And I shut the lid down tight
'Cos you know I'm right
Yeah you know I'm right

I don't know why you feel the need to justify to me
The reasons why you're not to blame
You're not convincing me
I don't care if you're on the sick
Save it pal it's just the same old shtick

Caught you with your pants down
You knew you were bang to rights
So I put you back in your box
And I shut the lid down tight
'Cos you know I'm right
Yeah you know I'm right
Yeah

So you tell me that the world
Has let you down again
Why not keep your mouth shut
And not treat me with disdain?
I don't care if you're on your knees
Back under your rock if you please

Caught you with your pants down
You knew you were bang to rights
So I put you back in your box
And I shut the lid down tight
'Cos you know I'm right
Yeah you know I'm right
Yeah
Track Name: A Song For Philip Lemonet
Let down by a system
Designed to help
Recidivist King
Exposing the flaws
A born underachiever
The Devil's own deceiver

A master of
The cloak and dagger
His true intentions
Remain unknown
A man of dubious identity
Destined to keep his liberty

Now time is running out
The noose has tightened
A knock on the door
Then confusion reigns
And you realise then
You've swallowed his lies
Once again he's pulled the wool
Over your eyes
