about

Nothingness in Vogue is a deep digital dive into my depression and struggle with nihilism induced by the chaos of being. Themes of hopeful delusion, heartbreak, loneliness, and suicide are all weaved into a play of drum machine beats and synth swirls. This album serves as a vessel for a period in my life I am trying to transcend but look back upon as a constant lesson.

Track Name: Spiraling
You're flickering
You're flickering out like a flame
You had your shot
But now it's all gone down the drain

Spiraling down
So tightly wound
Into strange shapes
As it gets late
I exaggerate
The lives we've made
On and on dead and gone
So you've got to let me go

It's shimmering
It's shimmering like your young face
But youth is brief
So quick release all that's fake

Spiraling down
So tightly wound
Into strange shapes
As it gets late
I exaggerate
The lives we've made
On and on dead and gone
So you've got to let me go
Track Name: Never Be
You and I
Will never be together
You and I
Will never be

Sat on the fence
Cried for awhile
About all these let downs
And unmet desires
Your fire it burns
Right through my heart
My love's been expended
I'm giving you up
Sick of the times
When you left me abandoned
And killing this lust
Has become a must
The fantasy's ended

You and I
Will never be together
You and I
Will never be

You and I
Will never be together
You and I
Will never be we

Took some time
Out in the wild
Barked up the trees
I could climb as a child
And always the same
I'm losing the game
Just a trip in your stumble
You're giving this up
Tired of finding me
Where you expected
And day turns to dusk
You feel like a husk
The dream's been suspended

You and I will never be
Track Name: Chasing It
I'm crying with the sunset
Placed my love on a cheap bed
I thought it'd never go to waste
I'm looking at you
And you're feeling it too
Now great we've got that tepid taste

Every time you cross my mind
I end up walking circles of cruel and kind
Guess it's fine
And time rewinds
We find ourselves tangled up in a loveless bind
And I just keep chasing it away

I'm higher than a kite now
You're hotter than a mad cow
Deep down you hate my stupid face
You're turning to that lavender hue
And now I'm in a wild craze

All my life it's passed me by
Staring down all the shadows
And great divides
You're the light
Got too bright
I'm blinded wondering
if I'll make it out in time

I'm crying with the sunset
Placed my love on a cheap bed
We thought we'd never go to waste
I'm smashing through
That delicate you
Love hate my mind's lost in a maze
Track Name: Nothingness in Vogue
Happy as a clam
I smile into the void
It was the first thing
I ever wanted to destroy

Nothingness in Vogue
My light my life has gone
Into such great depths
A never ending marathon

When the final blow
Comes down to sticks and stones
Clinging on to our now weary bones

Nothing left to say
When all the memory grays
What a waste
Our lives just melt away

Now, bow

Feeling underwhelmed
My lonely soul has died
All of those heavy tears
Welled up though I never cried
Grinning like a fool
I laugh at my demise
Crushed by some deep despair
The love I've come to despise

When the halo glows
You lose all that you know
Terrified
The father turned to foe

Standing at the gates
The heaven you create
Fades to black
As your hope dead deflates

Now, bow
Track Name: Spotty
Saturday night
Left me on the bench
You wrestled me into
A paralytic state of indifference
I'm not your man
I'm not your lover
Just a hole in the heart
Of a sputtering out false start

When there's no one left
To do you wrong
And you feel like
You can't bare
To face it all
Our spotty thoughts weave on
The night's seem long
But I'll be right there
To catch you when you fall

Yesterdays fight
Sent me on a blitz
We just can't seem to see
Each other in the other
So it ends with fists

You're not my friend
You're not my lover
Just coal in the dark
Holding out for a flame
To spark

When there's no one left
To do you wrong
And you feel like
You can't bare
To face it all
Our spotty thoughts weave on
The night's seem long
But I'll be right there
To catch you when you fall
Track Name: Last Night
In my mind
There's a way we can make it
There is no time
In the length of our goodbyes
You'll decide
The ways in which
I'll crumble daily
This suffering's fine
Til the end of my love line

You wilt
You were
The heart of my heart
Never taken for granted
I'm still unloved
The way you bring
A light to my darkness
You've given up
Taken off
Now I'm left empty handed
Last night
You changed
The distance born
In this cruel separation of us

All my life
I've waited for the answer
Who'd be the one
To stand by my side
Now I know
There's no one
Out there for this fool
Who chose to lose
Uprooted by loves bruise

You wilt
You were
The heart of my heart
Never taken for granted
I'm still unloved
The way you bring
A light to my darkness
You've given up
Taken off
Now I'm left empty handed
Last night
I changed
The distance born
In this cruel separation of us
Track Name: Happiness
Took a page from your book
Made a paper plane
That the wind took
Out of my hands
The death of all plans
Is waking you up

I'm the sheep to your wolf
Bite the bullet
Then I'm shook
You're nodding your head
Wet as the bad
You pissed in your sleep

Happiness Happiness is
What we've made
Happiness Happiness will
Always fade

Happiness Happiness
Will never stay
Happiness Happiness
Is just a phase

Coming over when I cook
Broke my heart then
The wine took
All of my hope
Down the death slope
I'm desperate enough

You're the devil
With those looks
No details
Ever took
The food that you love
Death from above
It all tastes of ash

Happiness Happiness is
What we've made
Happiness Happiness will
Always fade

Happiness Happiness
Will never stay
Happiness Happiness
Is just a phase
Track Name: Woke Spoke
Found yourself in a hole
You had dug on your own
Grab the phone
No one's home
Empty house
Got no spouse
Tangled in your self doubt

The answer is always
Right in front of us
U S U R
Nothing more than dust
Just
Passing with the light of
Daytime
We play fine
But we always
End up the same

Woke up stuck in a lull
You had spoke to my soul
Hard to take
The feeling's fake
Running low
Took the blows
Mangled by the words you chose

The answer is always
Right in front of us
U S U R
Nothing more than dust
Just
Passing with the light of
Daytime
We play fine
But we always
End up the same
Track Name: Lonely Heart
Close my eyes
Every time you walk by
Cus it's easier
If I don't see your face
Again

I lie awake in bed
And think of space
Cus it's better than
Being here when you're so near
To me

Wish I could wake
But my hearts not in this game

Lonely heart
You've played your part
It's destiny to wait and see
Loosing you
Is making me
Fall apart
And go crazy

Who am I to say
It's farewell
Cus I don't know
If I'm supposed to go
Away

Never mind the time
It's not here
Cus when I look at you
I feel no fear

But love turns to hate
And you left a bad taste

Lonely heart
You've played your part
It's destiny to wait and see
Loosing you
Is making me
Fall apart
And go crazy
