simonthechipmunk Thanks for not holding back these songs. Although they may appear unfinished to you (and I can see why) there will be people like me who like them regardless or even especially because of that fact. Favorite track: Redux.

about

An album of demos, b-sides, and generally discarded stuff. This collection of 50 songs spans 3 years of my project 'Almost Anyone'.

A lot of material on here isn't finished, and in some cases it's easy to see why. But it was my experimentation and all-round dicking about that got me to where I am now.

The whole album tracklist is in chronological order, to showcase the evolution I underwent as an artist. Working on putting together this batch of songs for a release made me find pride in everything I've ever done. Even the wacky, stupid stuff (The Wire is the most stupid thing.).

I still don't consider myself a 'good' producer by any means. But this serves as a reminder to myself that I have come a long way, and still have a longer way to go.

I hope you enjoy these songs.

Track Name: Ashes (Demo Version)
You ever feel like the world is not,
On your side, you get a little bit lost inside?
You ever feel like it's difficult?
And it only gets harder as you wonder,
Can't it be a little simpler tonight?

What if I told you we could get out of this madness?
Burn up the sky, just like a phoenix.

You take my hand,
I'll lead us away,
Out from the ashes,
You shine the way.
I never thought,
I'd be okay.

You've seen the fire and you can live again.
You're young and free with brand new wings.
Now what if I asked you to take me away from sadness,
And heal all the wounds I've gathered.
It's not like anybody will see,
Unless you tell them it's hurting,
And not for the first time.

You take my hand,
I'll lead us away,
Out from the ashes,
You shine the way.
I never thought,
I'd be okay.

You take my hand,
I'll lead us away,
Out from the ashes,
You shine the way.
I never thought,
I'd be okay.

Rise up,
Rise up,

It's not like anybody will see,
Unless you tell them it's hurting,
And not for the first time.

Now I'm entering the final phase,
Trying to find what I'm supposed to be.

You take my hand,
I'll lead us away,
Out from the ashes,
You shine the way.
I never thought,
I'd be okay.

You take my hand,
I'll lead us away,
Out from the ashes,
You shine the way.
I never thought,
I'd be okay.

Rise up,
Rise up,
From the ashes.
Track Name: Losing Sleep
Well time is running short,
And I can't afford to run right now.
So put the pace down,
We'll face our fate now,
We haven't got time to lose sleep on it.

Standing at the foot of hills,
Way to tall for me to climb.
It’s time to find another way.
The darkness gets closer every day.

I can feel it coming round,
Like a boulder crashing down.
This is all I’ve ever feared
That I could be left all on my own.

Well time is running short,
And I can't afford to run right now.
So put the pace down,
We'll face our fate now,
We haven't got time to lose sleep on it.

Will I find a place where I could feel,
Like I can be normal once again.
What if I face my fears tonight?
What if stare right in it’s eyes?

Well time is running short,
And I can't afford to run right now.
So put the pace down,
We'll face our fate now,
We haven't got time to lose sleep on it.
Track Name: Lost In The System (Demo Version)
I grew up thinking there’d be no one for me,
You saved the part I called art so i’d see,
‘my citrus shade, don’t be afraid’ was all that you’d say,
Oh i am, what I am, I’m not going astray.

Slowly i’m coming apart from the inside,
Fragments of memory just lost in the system,
All the resistance,
All my resistance, just lost in the system

Down in the system, my fears are visions,
And in the system, I change decisions,
I’m cold and afraid, i’m lost inside a digital world,
I’d be much better off, if I were with you.
Track Name: Catapult Love (Vocal Edit)
Have you ever heard about a love so strong,
It sends you to the moon and back?
I know a guy who's like an astronaut,
Flying flags with your name on.

Did you ever hear the story about the girl,
Who let another be all there was to her world?
The word is that she's happy now,
And I can't bring up any doubt.
So lets leave it at that.

Just catapult me,
Just catapult me with your love.

Did you ever hear the story about the girl,
Who let another be all there was to her world?
The word is that she's happy now,
And I can't bring up any doubt.
So lets leave it at that.

Catapult me through the night,
With your love just like a catapult.
Oh oh.

The word is that she's happy now,
And I can't bring up any doubt.
So lets leave it at that.

Just catapult me,
Just catapult me with your love.
Track Name: Forgive Me
If I were to die and words were left unsaid,
I couldn't bear to think I'd left you out,
So please forgive me when I lose myself in thought,
I'm made for this my darling and it's all for you.
Track Name: Lost In The System (Nightcore Edit)
I grew up with all this technology,
I think it’s finally turning on me,
Shots and sparks ignite the past and all that I knew,
I’m sinking deeper and I don’t know what’s true.

Slowly i’m coming apart from the inside,
Fragments of memory just lost in the system,
All the resistance,
All my resistance, just lost in the system

Down in the system, my fears are visions,
And in the system, I change decisions,
I’m cold and afraid, i’m lost inside a digital world,
I’d be much better off, if I were with you.
