about

Vox Artis is a quiet triumph.

This is music...

...pressed, pushed, screwed up, thrown away, picked up, flattened out, and reimagined.

Music that survived.

Music that wouldn't let me let go.

Track Name: 12:26
12:26 to Blackpool North
22 minutes of solitary thought
Trying my best not to get caught
Up in these things, ideas and dreams

Kirkham and Wesham slip out of sight
The couple beside me
Watching me write
Tourists and teenagers headed for Saturday night
While I sit here with nothing
But fears to fight

Scared of staying still
Feeling trapped in my own skin
Though I'm longing to begin, I'm stalling
Scared of moving on
It's like I don't know what I want
I afraid of what's to come...

Train now arriving, Poulton-le-Fylde
Pushing past people like some impatient child, 'cause I'm
Feeling too stormy for weather so mild
My spirit is willing, but my flesh is wild, I'm...

Scared of staying still
Feeling trapped in my own skin
Though I'm longing to begin, I'm stalling
Scared of moving on
It's like I don't know what I want
Hiding here, behind a song...

Yeah
I'm sick of staying still
And I scared of moving on
It's like I don't know what I want
I'm afraid of what's to come

No, I don't know what I want
I'm afraid of what's to come...
Track Name: Sleeping Beast
Don't make any sudden moves
Can't you see my beast is sleeping?
It's been with me all my life
I can't hide
But I can't beat this

Without you, without you
I'm drop in the desert
I'm a breath in the sea

I don't understand myself
Or this internal war I'm waging
I'm enslaved by what I hate
But my desire is for your freedom

Within you, within you
There is hope for the sinner
There is strength for the weak

Here on my knees
Here patiently
I'll wait for you
To deliver me

Without you, without you
I'm drop in the desert
I'm a breath in the sea
But I'll keep my head above water
'Cause you're coming for me
Within you, within you
There is hope for the sinner
There is strength for the weak
So I'll wait here in the silence
Waiting for you to speak
