This is a new version of a song that I first recorded in 2005 (I think) on one of my weekends home from uni at my parents house. At that time I would occasionally bring my guitar home with me when I would come back from uni at the weekends (I was lazy and liked home-cooked food). Sometimes I'd try recording songs with a very minimal setup, and this was the result of one such recording session.


It's not improving, this sinking ship,
I'll give it a chance before I run and hide.

Something is taking me away,
Mixed intentions collide.

The plans didn't go this far,
I just went along for the ride.

Things had started to make sense,
Then I switched on my consciousness,
Put myself in control,
Now I'm left out in the cold.

Is there a face behind the mask,
Is it all somebody's plan.

What do they want of me?
Escape as soon as I can.

Extar is the output for my home recordings. I record and play all the instruments myself with varying degrees of competence and to varying degrees of success. Most of my stuff is faintly industrial since I like using a drum machine. I have a massive appreciation for Nine Inch Nails and various other industrial bands. I also like metal, so you'll hear a lot of that too. ... more
