about

Matt Ford Liverpool, UK

Working under his own name, Matt Ford is free from the restrictive constraints of a band name. Working on his own, he is liberated from the constant compromise which comes from playing in a band. He is able to be as schizophrenic and as multi-faceted as his artistic whim allows him to be. Matt Ford has no expectations to live up to, other than his own. The possibilities are endless. ... more

Track Name: Regret
No appetite, never hungry,
Sleep day and night, preserve energy,
Systems failing, shutting down,
Mouth so dry, regrets abound.

She was my light, she was my life,
Saw me through the days, and through the nights,
No oxygen, just restlessness,
Words are few with my feeble breath.

Senses failing, skin is cold,
Disorientation, no dignity to behold.

I want to see her.
I want to see her.
I want to smell her.
If I could only hear her.

Cold, numb,
Too dull for crying,
Feeling my life slip away slowly...
...I'm dying.
Track Name: Candles
So many people with a house but without a home,
So many lives driven off their roads,
We ride together, but alone.

Where will you go when you've nowhere left to run?
Where will you lay when you've no candles left to burn?

Love could be around any corner, waiting like a knife,
But your heart is still bleeding,
From the first cut.

Where will you go when you've nowhere left to run?
Where will you lay when you've no candles left to burn?

Clinging so fast just to recreate the past,
But you know deep down inside that you'll never get it back.

Where will you go when you've nowhere left to run?
Where will you lay when you've no candles left to burn?
Where will you go when you've nowhere left to hide?
Where will you lay when you're already dead inside?
Track Name: Afloat
Can feel myself slowing down,
Can feel my bones breaking down,
Can feel my will withering,
Can feel my shell shattering.

Creeping shapes surround me,
As the ground bubbles around me,
Must stay level,
Must stay level
Must.
Must.
Must.

Stay afloat,
Stay afloat,
Can feel them pulling down the threads.
Stay afloat.
Stay afloat.
Track Name: Unravel
I'm still learning how to be a human,
Jigsaw puzzle life,
Riddle unravel,
Will I take the time to make myself whole?

Sacrifice myself
to appease everyone else,
Seal up my skin,
Never truly let you in,
Race against time,
A quickly ending life,
Identity revealed,
This is how I feel.

Will any one of you
Know what to do
When the pressure is on?
Will you be strong?
I believe I can
Meet my own demands,
Do you understand?
This is who I am.

I'm still learning how to be a human,
Jigsaw puzzle life,
Riddle unravel,
Will I find my way by my dying day?
