Occasionally the real world pulls you away from the things that you love; but sometimes, you're reminded that you can come back. I use to be in a band called The Jupiter Project, and then I was in License, then I went toe-to-toe with Giant Battle Wombat and most recently I tried to keep up with the Paper Snakes. ... more

Track Name: When The Lights Went Out
Thirteen months, treading water
Don't do that again, Don't do that again
Get involved, with a brand new captain
Steer you from your friend… steal you from your friend

No one is sure what to believe -- how do you stand so still?

Bailing buckets of water straight from his boat
Here you are again, here you go again

There's only one way to get where she's gone
Drive around back -- is her light on?
She may drift and she may flee
But the view from that room is everything

Tell your story again because you want it
We know, We know -- they all think they wrote it

Tell me how it felt when the lights went out
When it was just you in the dark
Did you take a deep breath with your hand on your chest
Or did your stomach swallow your heart
They are just change in your pocket, trouble you thought you'd buy
But you are built for disappointment,
Oh honey, did you want me to lie?
