about

'Shatterheart' marks the transition from punk metal to alternative pop rock while telling a story of failing romance. A simple pop rock tune underpinned with funk beats, the song paints a metaphor-saturated picture of domestic bliss in tatters, illustrating the games people play to cover their unhappiness. First penned in 2008 and offered to Flowers For Lily and Love Hate Rebellion respectively, this cut-from-live-performance composition lived on a hard drive for several years before finding its way online. Despite telling a sad tale, the overarching theme is one of hope encapsulated in an environment of hopelessness.

'C Side Volume 2: Sinking Ships'

lyrics

I am swimming in your eyes
Feathers in your head
Grey is fitting in this whole demise
I won't be the one who never tried

Free my heart
Free my soul
But don't ever let me go
Hold me close
When we make love
And don't wake me if it's over
If love is pain
Then you are God
And God is love and we are hopeless
This shatterheart
Just like dust
You won't fix me when I'm broken

I can see it in your mind
Acid on your breath
Growing talons to watch me die
You were always better at this game

Free my heart
Free my soul
But don't ever let me go
Hold me close
When we make love
And don't wake me if it's over
If love is pain
Then you are God
And God is love and we are hopeless
This shatterheart
Just like dust
You won't fix me when I'm broken
