about

This EP is FREE. Don't feel the need to pay anything.

The recording for this EP started in a living room largely as an exercise to learn Pro Tools and the art of recording and mixing.

It was also to experiment with doing it all on my own from the songwriting and performance, to the drum and synth programming and recording, to the album artwork. That's the idea behind EGOIST.

So this is all 100% me - mistakes and successes.

Enjoy and thanks for listening.

Track Name: Selfish
I can see right through you
To where my mistakes lie
I have planted them in you
And now they’re coming to bear
The fruits
Of my carelessness

Ahhh…
Ahhh…

Time, it won’t be held
And time won’t be told
Time
Will flow right through us
And wash us both
Out to sea

Ahhh…
Ahhh…
Ahhh…
Ahhh…
Track Name: Selfcentered
I see the writing on the wall
Like a broken lonely side effect
You came to terms before the fall
Your mirror’s broken but your eyes reflect

The center’s gone
The center’s gone
Gone…
Gone…

Back behind the blackout curtain
Not asleep, but not awake
Your future here is uncertain
You’re not real, but you’re no fake

The center’s gone
The center’s gone
Your sense of self is less than perfect
The force that drove you all along
Embodied lies float to the surface

The center’s gone
The center’s gone
Your sense of self is less than perfect
The force that drove you all along
Embodied lies float to the surface
Track Name: Thoughtless
Selfish self centered and thoughtless
My god I’m such a prick
You came to me like an angel
And I treated you like shit

I wandered lost in the Darkness
Hands tied behind my back
Rage took to my mind like a blindness
The way forward found in attack

Selfish self centered
Lost in thought
My god I’ve fallen apart

I crawled the Earth like creature
Going on full self destruct
Broken pulpit and voiceless preacher
The empty pews don’t give a fuck

I slither out of the shadows
Drawn to the heat of the road
Retreat at the sound of your footsteps
A lost child with a recluse soul

Selfish self centered
Lost in thought
My god I’ve fallen apart
Selfish self centered
Thoughtless
My fallen goddess

Catalyst to the resurrection
Soft hands in the frozen earth
I awake from the carrion comfort
And stand in the after birth

Selfish self centered and thoughtless
Selfish self centered and thoughtless
Selfish self centered and thoughtless
My god I’m such a prick

Selfish self centered and thoughtless
Selfish self centered and thoughtless

Selfish self centered and thoughtless
Selfish self centered and thoughtless
Selfish self centered and thoughtless
My god I’m such a prick
