FEAR

In Reflection this is one of favourite solo songs, people cant tell me about genres etc cause I don’t know how to pin this one down.

Hint: I was inspired by Sbtrkt album at the time, loved Sampha song writing even Frank Ocean Nostalgia Ultra.





This song is about my nightmares/dreams as a child. The irony of hearing this again recently is this will come back round full circle very soon. Watch this space.


Was so dark how was you to know?

Pitch black, mind in an ego, let it go

I tried to, nothing can stop it

Shadows in my mind

creep out the closet

Heads turn, on the dolls in the window

Eyes wide open like Chuckie has open

So I close my eyes

change my reality

Lost in a world where I’m scared to see clarity

I, change the frequency I try to escape

cause I’m always the victim in the maze

No medusa but I cant move

paralysed as the shadows creep the room

I close my eyes again

Hoping they cant see me

cause I don’t want to know what happens next

These nightmares suffocate my dreams

thats why I was always wake up in a sweat


I wana get out of hear

I don’t want to face my fears no

I wana get out of hear

theres no escape it, accept it

I wana get out of hear

I don’t want to face my fears no

I wana get out of hear

theres no escape it, accept it


Wafer thin is the mattress

that the boy sleeps on

eyelids are shut

but he’s got his lights on

Mum just walked out the door

off to do a night shift

and he doesn’t want to sleep

addicted to the flicks

Of images that simulate eyes with vividness

a ubiquitous influence

Hammer Horrors was the instrument

watching Christopher Lee

Literally killing it

Eyes glued until he falls into his sleep scape

And darkness creeps in and takes over his dream scape

if he’s not a Lost Boy than he wants to escape

cause he would rather be fly

than the predators prey

But he cant seem to chose where he goes

He’s been that way for as long as he knows

The more he fears

The more they control

The more he fears

The more they control


I wana get out of hear

I don’t want to face my fears no

I wana get out of hear

theres no escape it, accept it

I wana get out of hear

I don’t want to face my fears no

I wana get out of hear

theres no escape it, accept it
