Wide Awake

Like a face in the crowd, without a sound, yet like a klaxon it's so loud, A voice in the air, floats down to me, washing away a blanket of sin, And I cannot see, so will you tell me, how you do these things to me? Chorus: I am wide awake but I am dreaming with you, While I am fast asleep I am still here talking to you. How can I explain what I proclaim is a perfect tribute to you? For you, you let me forget the world… As a roll of the dice, is only so high, trapped like a bird within six walls, It can go no higher, nor can it bend, it was made for one eternal end.

Another Day, Another Hour

So I make love to an image while silently dragging my feet, I'll repent in the morning, and tomorrow we'll rinse and repeat. Chorus: Another day, another hour, and I'm a slave to this ivory tower.

My Bio
I live in the UK and I'm interested in various forms of art, specifically poetry, music and photography.

There's not really a lot to say about me really. But if you have questions or anything let me know and I'll answer them...maybe!

Thanks for visiting this page! Hopefully there'll soon be stuff here which isn't really old!

Also check out my writer's network page for more lyricy song stuff as I post that there rather than here these days. www.writers-network.com/index.…

Back again after 3 years!

Back again after 3 years!

Howdy! It has been a very long time indeed since I last was here! You never know I might even stick around a while and post some stuff or perhaps I'm just passing through. Hard to tell with these things I find! It's odd looking back that my last post was announcing that I was 18 and in my final year of college. I'm 21 now and in my final year of University. Lots of stuff has changed though a fair amount has stayed constant too. So who knows, maybe this is the start of a ton of posts, maybe not! For now I'm here though! Best wishes, Ben

Well it's been some time!

Well it's been some time!

It has been AGES since my last update I must confess. April I think was the last update and a lot has changed since then! Well first things first I am 18 (as of the 12th October) -that's the legal age to drink here in the UK so it's pretty damn good! I got a laptop for my Birthday so I can get on the computer much more frequently which is good! I might even manage to get some new content up. But I don't know so don't get your hopes up! (or down if you dread the thought of me putting more stuff up) Erm...what else, I am in my second year at college now, it's alright I guess but I have to work more this year which isn't too much fun. Plenty o

So life...

So life...

Well lifes moved on again, the new years come and past and I'm still wondering where the time went...Well life goes on I guess, the parties are less common than before which is probably for the best. Its a shame the heavy drinking is stil pretty common..ah well something to work on. College is cool and I've started learning to play acoustic guitar. dA wise I havn't drawn in a while and I've got a bit of a writers block song-wise. I still take quite a few photos though, hopefully the rest will follow. Hope everyones still OK, lets just hope summer hurrys up :) We had SNOW a few days ago! Yes SNOW! In April! I guess it proves the weather is f**
