This track was written way back in 2008 about a few people I knew who were in dishonest relationships. The song is divided into two parts, dealing with both sides of an unfaithful story. We also shot a rather lurid video for this song which I'm really proud of.



Did you accidentally cheat on him repeatedly?
Did you serve betrayal and lust obsequiously?
Does he know his loyalty is the butt of a joke?
Does he know you cover your lover's musky scent with cigarette smoke?

There is hope in everything but I don't know quite where to look.
There is a song in everyone but I cannot find my own hook.
There is a flame in everyone so let's make a fire tonight.
We'll simultaneously spontaneously combust you must me trust me lover.
If I can forgive myself then surely I can forgive anybody else.
But I can't forgive you, you know what you did, you broke a heart once already broken into two and I can't forgive you.

Did you accidentally cheat on her secretly?
Do you continue to lie to her disobediently?
One woman's beauty was never enough for men like you,
Do you ever take responsibility for those wicked things you do?

1 the art or science of combining vocal or instrumental sounds (or both) to produce beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion.

Music is my life. An oft-used cliché yet nonetheless true for me. I've devoted most of my existence to exploring it in every way & in turn it has enabled me to travel the world & meet new friends all over.

Hope you like my sounds!
