David reflects on what has become of his existence. Binge drinking, binge sexuality, memory loss, constant thoughts of suicide. He must write it all out or drown in it but although he needs the songs he hates them. He tries to pull them out of his body but he can't find a way to shape the melodies into accurate representations of the damage inflicted. He feels a deep sense of isolation and dreams that there is a person out there who will love him fiercely enough to rise above their fear of him and lead him to the oceans edge and hold him so that he could leak out all of the poison within his body and rise again as a human being instead of the rusted out robot he has become from holding his own ocean within him.


I’ve been wincing from the pain

Of dancing upon these broken legs

My whiskey and my lovers drained away

And I can’t remember their names


I’ve been sleeping with my gun

At night I like to hold it in my hand

Its cold caress upon my neck

But I’ve got singing to do yet


I’ve been writing my own songs

Detailing the things that I’ve done wrong

The melody hides in my throat

There are no notes for the words we wrote


I’ve been dreaming of a friend

Someone who doesn’t run from whats within

She would guide me to the shore

Lead me to the edge where I could let things go

David T8tz has always used music as a way to cope with sadness. From his first heartbreak at 12 years old, he was writing and performing his own songs. He never thought this skill set learned at at such a young age would become so necessary for survival later in life.

(Previously David was the frontman for Winston and the Telescreen.)
