So today has been my first day off since last Saturday and im in again tomorrow and not off until the 9th when i head to Wales for the SYB release show and sweet hangouts with Rich and his Ghost. Then i have a straight run in work till we go on tour. I really cant wait to get out of here, my head is all over the place at the moment.
Today was shaping up to be such a good day but stuff didnt pan out and i just sat here in the worst mood. Im really confused at the moment and im just not sure what to think so tour is the perfect chance to get away from everything. I never want a day off again if its gonna be like this, haha. Id rather have a horrible day while earning some money.

Young Wolves are playing tomorrow if you re interested.

Its nearly 9am. I couldnt sleep last night. It sucked. I had a lot to think about. So many question. Not many answers. I really have no idea what im doing but it seems to have got me through so far. My last day of recording in Kilcoole is fast aproaching. Who knows when i will be back. But i think its for the best. Its time to get back to my real life. Everything is so chaotic at the moment. This is the first bit of time i have had to myself in week and im meant to be in work haha. I think maybe a change needs to be made. Hard decisions to follow.

This song got me through the night:

The clock struck twelve
2 hours ago
Time flies when you're stuck in last year

A person never meant
The power he holds was so clear
But lightning, lightning crashes here
Lightning crashes here

What's getting me through tonight? (tonight, tonight)
Gripping tightly, to the thought of being home.
(The thought of being home)
Think about your headphones
Think about your bike
In the parking lot we were...
We were recorded that night!

Each thump I hear
Will coincide with this
That I hold near
(That I hold dear)
To nothing

Are you feeling happiness?(x2)

Forget my needs
They are slowly closing in on me
It's guaranteed
I'm overreacting

The clock struck twelve
2 hours ago
time flies when you're stuck in last year

A person never meant
The power he holds was so clear
But lightning, lightning

What's putting me in tonight? (tonight, tonight)
Gripping tightly, to the thought of being yours.
(The thought of being yours)
Think about your shackles
Think about your rights
Stomping hard, behind bars
Dislodging ears of solemn nights (solemn nights)

Killing the moods
Is my forte
Extremely immense
I stalk my prey
Are you feeling happiness?
'Cause I'm sure life's about being pissed.

Killing the moods
Is my forte
Extremely immense
I stalk my prey
Are you feeling happiness?
'Cause I'm sure life's about being pissed.

Are you feeling happiness?
Are you feeling happiness?
Are you feeling happiness?
'Cause I'm sure life's about being pissed...

Dublin Bus

Im getting a bit sick of overly packed buses on my way home from work. so yesterday instead of heading home i went to town and hung out with nelly and downtown for a few hours. the laughs were had. So at like 9 i went to get a bus. i waited for a few mins and eventually jumped on a 19. i was chilling upstairs listening to Death is not Glamorous and i noticed the bus had stopped and everyone was going downstairs. so i jumped up and headed downstairs and i was greeted by the sight of a broken window and a kid in a wheelchair covered in glass. i was just so shocked. some scum bag had thrown a rock at the bus and shattered the window.

is this what this city has come to?? was it always this bad??
i always thought that dublin was an ok place to grow up but im not so sure id want to raisea family here now.

Im exhausted. i just want to jump into bed and sleep for a month haha. But i cant. im basically working 34 out of the next 37 days before Find a way go on tour. it will suck. but these are the things that need to be done to enable me to afford to do what i love and i have no problem with that.

this is where i will be:
Mar 17 - Find A Way UK Tour With Break The Habit + Cutting Class, BRIGHTON
Mar 18 - Find A Way UK Tour With Break The Habit + Cutting Class, NEWPORT
Mar 19 - Find A Way UK Tour With Break The Habit + Cutting Class, SOUTHAMPTON
Mar 20 - Find A Way UK Tour With Break The Habit + Cutting Class, LEEDS
Mar 21 - Find A Way UK Tour With Break The Habit + Cutting Class, SUNDERLAND
Mar 22 - Find A Way UK Tour With Break The Habit + Cutting Class, NOTTINGHAM

Im excited to get into that van again and just drive. Fingers crossed that we will have the 7 inch out by then.

Im so broke at the moment its crazy. The reason for my lack of money is because i was extremely sick in mid January and as a result i missed 9 days of work which sucked because i was about to take the guts of 2 weeks off to record the Famine album and the Young Wolves Demo. So here i am back in work and broke, haha. I get paid for 2 days i ended up working somewhere in the middle there on thursday so i should have enough to cover what i owe for recording at least. haha i have also commited to working every single day in April, i wonder how that will turn out.

The Famine album is finished and im in love with how it sounds, we spent so much time on it and put in a lot of hard work and i hope it shows. It was so strange to finally record songs we had been playing for a while! The release show should be on the 8th of May. Line up and all that stuff in the next couple of weeks.

I got to hang out with Tracy a bit this weekend and we had the best time. im hoping for more days like that. Mooneys at half 3.

I have another 2 hours of work left. its really cold. i can def see myself being in bed by 10 tonight.

Its Snowed In Dublin Last Night

What is it about snow that makes everything seem a little bit better?? We recorded the Famine album this week. I love how it sounds. Im going back to do vocals on thursday and friday, then on saturday and sunday we are recording the young wovles demo.

I cant get this song out of my head.

Step out the front door like a ghost
into the fog where no one notices
the contrast of white on white.
And in between the moon and you
the angels get a better view
of the crumbling difference between wrong and right.
I walk in the air between the rain
through myself and back again
Where? I don't know
Maria says she's dying
through the door I hear her crying
Why? I don't know
Round here we always stand up straight
Round here something radiates
Maria came from Nashville with a suitcase in her hand
she said she'd like to meet a boy who looks like Elvis
she walks along the edge of where the ocean meets the land
just like she's walking on a wire in the circus
she parks her car outside of my house
takes her clothes off
says she's close to understanding Jesus
she knows she's more than just a little misunderstood
she has trouble acting normal when she's nervous
Round here we're carving out our names
Round here we all look the same
Round here we talk just like lions
But we sacrifice like lambs
Round here she's slipping through my hands
Sleeping children better run like the wind
out of the lightning dream
Mama's little baby better get herself in
out of the lightning
She says It's only in my head
She says Shhh I know it's only in my head
But the girl in car in the parking lot
says "Man you should try to take a shot
can't you see my walls are crumbling?"
Then she looks up at the building
and says she's thinking of jumping
She says she's tired of life
she must be tired of something
Round here she's always on my mind
Round here hey man got lots of time
Round here we're never sent to bed early
And nobody makes us wait
Round here we stay up very, very, very, very late


A conversation with tracy yesterday made me listen to the counting crows all morning. i love this band.
Does anyone want to do anything before this gig???
