Calling out to the darkness to steal him, This life hasn’t been fair, I’ve made a few mistakes. Glowing, you offer me an adventure. So with this chance now, I take the plunge and accept the escape. Take me to your Labyrinth and I’ll play your wicked game. Take me to your labyrinth and I’ll never be the same. I don’t know if I’m awake or dreaming, In your eyes I waste away. So take me to your labyrinth and I’ll be your willing slave. Watching and waiting for me to find you, I can never go left when you’re always right. Shadows and corridors keep on changing, It’s just so hard to resist your pull when you’ve re-ordered time. Take me to your Labyrinth and I’ll play your wicked game. Take me to your labyrinth and I’ll never be the same. I don’t know if I’m awake or dreaming, In your eyes I waste away. So take me to your labyrinth and I’ll be your willing slave. Oh, you try so hard to break me, Oh, the crystal shines. Oh, do anything to have me, Oh, won’t be defied. Biting into the flesh, my head spinning. Figures now all around me, I meld with the crowd. Our eyes finally lock on each other, And nothing matters, content to dance with you as the world falls down. Take me to your Labyrinth and I’ll play your wicked game. Take me to your labyrinth and I’ll never be the same. I don’t know if I’m awake or dreaming, In your eyes I waste away. So take me to your labyrinth and I’ll be your willing slave.

Down, in the depths of me You twist and turn, manipulate. I’m strong but only human, Succumbing to an altered state. Lie weaver, You’re a mind stealer, You’re a sense taker, You’re my invader, Crawling inside, yet I’m Under your knife. You are truly mine to bend, So flow or fight, it means nothing. Accept - it will be easier, No matter what, I pull the strings. Lie weaver, You’re a mind stealer, You’re a sense taker, You’re my invader, Crawling inside, yet I’m Under your knife. Guess it’s better off this way, Conceding to the dark, Embracing all my innate truth. No more lying to yourself, That false reality, Accepting that you are me, And I am you. Inside forever more, To try and flee I’d be a fool. So while you slither in my skull, I know I can’t get rid of you. Lie weaver, You’re a mind stealer, You’re a sense taker, You’re my invader, Crawling inside, yet I’m Under your knife. (Lie weaver, I’m a mind stealer, I’m a sense taker, I’m your invader, Crawling inside, yet you’re Under my knife.)

I used to Have free will. Always kept a strong level head. From nowhere A cold voice Said “Come here babe, I’ll be the one to whisper things instead.” Your love, Your love, Though it shackles me to the floor, Your love, Your love, Though it forever takes, drags me down, Leaves me wanting more. I want to Blame someone. But somehow I let you take hold. Now so weak To your spell, I am surging, hungry, completely under your control. Your love, Your love, Cuts deep within my very core, Your love, Your love, Though it forever burns, in my brain, Leaves me wanting more. Lust is too sweet, won’t let me sleep. I feel you Coiled so tight. Labyrinthine creature, just like a snake about to strike. Your love, Your love, Hits hard like waves upon the shore. Your love, Your love, Though it forever burns, in my brain Leaves me wanting more. Your love, Your love, Though it shackles me to the floor, Your love, Your love, Though it forever takes, drags me down, Leaves me wanting more.

I don’t want to, But I try to, Silence you inside my head. You’re the voice that Makes me writhe when I’m abed. How you split me With your cunning. Every time while you have fed, You’re the voice that Colors my entire world red. Wish I could have chosen, But you always win. I can feel you in my bones, I’ll never be alone. Fight tooth and nail to stop your surfacing. All the while as I protest I relish your behest. Surrendering, I want to be a wicked thing. I have moments of clarity, but they’re few and far between. You’re the voice that pushes cravings so obscene. How you burn me, nice and slowly, pulling tight as any wire, You’re the voice that Fills me raw with blind desire. Wish I could have chosen, But you always win. I can feel you in my bones, I’ll never be alone. Fight tooth and nail to stop your surfacing. All the while as I protest I relish your behest. Surrendering, I want to be a wicked thing. I don’t want to, do I need to? Easier just to give in, You’re the voice that keeps my defense paper thin. How you grip me with your visions You’re the voice that cuts a grin, All is red now, As you swallow me in sin. Wish I could have chosen, But you always win. I can feel you in my bones, I’ll never be alone. Fight tooth and nail to stop your surfacing. All the while as I protest I relish your behest. Surrendering, I want to be a wicked thing. Wicked thing, a wicked thing, a wicked thing, I want to be a wicked thing.…

Jealousy 03:48 video
Too obsessed, They light another cigarette, Who cares what’s underneath her dress, I’ve spiraled down a hole. Thrills so cheap, Preventing me from anchored sleep, The kind of fame that makes me weep, Cutting into my soul. (Cuts into my soul) Jealousy, (what do I do with this) jealousy (can I break this) jealousy (how do I handle this) jealousy (I’m slowly bleeding) Low talent to match the kind of cash they spend, My core it shakes before it rends, should not be pay to play. No one thinks of who’s really behind the scenes, it all comes down to marketing, still aching for my day. Jealousy, (what do I do with this) jealousy (can I break this) jealousy (how do I get rid of) jealousy (I’m slowly bleeding) All for show, it’s always about you know, the arc of how the money flows, how funding equals fans. Try to be patient but I do everything, within a constant hustling, but no one gives a damn. Jealousy, (what do I do with this) jealousy (can I break this) jealousy (how do I handle this) jealousy (I’m slowly bleeding)

How it starts with a spark And you love how it feels. You can’t wait Till you’re home crafting something that’s real. Nine to five ain’t the time For creativity, So you work And you wait Planning out all your dreams. It’s so hard to let it go But I need you to know, You’re not alone. Finally So complete You’re excited to share. You release On a high And hope others will care. Countless hours, Did the time, Granted you’ve gone all in, Been a week And it seems There was no one who listened. It’s so hard to let it go But I need you to know, You’re not alone. Left wondering what you did, How could it possibly fail? So defeated. You think, “Why did I even try?” “Why don’t I shine as brightly?” And fall into bed. There are so few who speak On how art takes a toll. Pour it out, And your heart Leaves you vulnerable. Just remember To seek, There are others like you. You’re courageous. Keep doing The things that you do. It’s so hard to let it go But I need you to know, You’re not alone.

Control 04:31
You feel assured it’s the right choice, Only you know the whole story. They talk and judge behind their screens, When typing words is so easy. It’s hard to be just yourself, when everyone has needs. Don’t let them control you from the outside, pulling strings, projecting on you their lies. Don’t let them consume you, eat you alive. Only you can see truth from the inside, the inside. Such confidence in your own skin, You bear your soul, part of yourself. It’s too much for some to handle, And now you’re seen as something else. It’s hard to see when abundant opinions are free. Don’t let them control you from the outside, pulling strings, projecting on you their lies. Don’t let them consume you, eat you alive. Only you can see truth from the inside, the inside. Don’t let them control you from the outside, pulling strings, projecting on you their lies. Don’t let them consume you, eat you alive. Only you can see truth from the inside, the inside.

Moving On 04:39
Work to Go far in this Constant rat race, A breakneck pace. It’s tough To keep sanity, A perspective, To be reflective. I’m my worst critic. There’s one easy fix. Moving on, Staying strong, I gotta use this time, maximize. Moving on, Won’t be long, Until I find my stride, Don’t want to waste this life. Keep on Pushing in this big universe, Lots to traverse. If I hold course I will feel My destiny manifesting. I’m my worst critic. There’s one easy fix. Moving on, Staying strong, I gotta use this time, maximize. Moving on, Won’t be long, Until I find my stride, Don’t want to waste this life. Easy To just give it up. But that always Leads to dismay. I’d like To think that effort Truly pays off, Reaching the top. I’m my worst critic. There’s one easy fix. Moving on, Staying strong, I gotta use this time, maximize. Moving on, Won’t be long, Until I find my stride, Don’t want to waste this life.

about

After hundreds of hours of work, over a year's time, and many cups of tea, I've finally done it. Inner Demons is my debut full-length vocal electropop release as a recording artist. Up until now everything has been for a game/film, client, or a short EP.

This release is huge to me; I've always wanted to release a full vocal album.

It's the culmination of my inner monologues, struggles, desires, and musical soul. This is truly my album, I did absolutely everything in the creation of this release.

Enjoy the dark, dreamy, moody, melodic vibes of Inner Demons.
