The last of the great believers in right and wrong.

The way i'm living right now, i might as well just become nocturnal. Is it just me that seems to think slightly differently at 3am? i like it.

New songs on the way. Usually while writing, either Dan or I will take the lead with a song, usually it's whichever one of us came up with the initial idea. They tend to lead the other two through and fit everyone's idea's together. I'm not sure how that started, but it works for us which is important. The new song Dan has taken the lead on and it's sounding good - improved dramatically when we got the vocal hook running over the chorus. It's a melody that we've had kicking around for a while now and altered it slightly to fit, but it works really well.

I enjoy the fact that I have no idea how other bands write songs. I read some interviews with my favourite bands saying that one person will come up with pretty much everything and then teach the others, in other bands they say that one guy does the lyrics, one the melody, one the music etc. The way we write isn't set in stone, but it's not copied from anyone else either.

The last of the great believers in right and wrong? Not me, i gave that up a long time ago.

I'm the master of low expectations.

Ok, it's been a little while since i posted, but there isn't a whole load to fill you in on. I've been going through the motions with some people. It makes me sad when I do it, but I am without doubt my own worst enemy sometimes, so I just carry on and hope that tomorrow i'll wake up and be better for myself.

Shows have been good recently. If i come across as curt, short or arrogant then i apologise, i really do, but we have spent so long compromising for no apparent reason that we are really trying to stop and do things our way for a change. If you don't know what i'm talking about, then just ignore me.

I can't wake up in the mornings. I think i hide in sleep sometimes.

p.s. Why are things easier to type into an anonymous box than tell you to your face? Oh well, just read this and pretend you don't know what i mean.

Playing Catch-up

Met up with an old girlfriend of mine today, who I haven't seen in a long time. We catch up with each other every time we are in the same town and it's cool to chat about what's going on with our lives etc. Our lives are completely different in every way, but i guess that's just what happens.

Polishing new songs tonight. I will finish the lyrics to all the new songs by the time we have to play them live....hopefully. The songs are snapshots of a part of my life (or the lives of those around me). I try my best to make them pictures that you can paint yourself into, if you want to.

I would tell you to leave, but my throat is shot to pieces

This will be our first chance to work on the new songs and get them ready for you guys since we all had some time away from home and did our own things for a little while. It wasn't long but it seemed like forever. I have been putting things off way too much recently. I am the worlds worst (or is that best?) procrastinator. I will try and do better, i promise.

Where have you been?

I have been having an amazing week. Read about it here.

In other news I have a whole load of work to catch up on, but my body is still trying to recover from the things I have put it through in the last week or so. I have cuts and bruises all over and I ache. Feels good to be back at home though, although sometimes it's nowhere near as good as it feels being away with my friends.

I walked past a girl last night wearing a perfume that brought back every memory i have of a girl i know. It was scary that in the middle of everything i had a million good and bad memories slam into my head at the same time. I did what i always do, i ran away.
