about

1st track on the album was released as a lead-off single on 6th April 2015 gaining positive reviews from press, critics, and music bloggers as well as being played on radio stations and podcasts around the world.

Schemes is really about trying to make sense of the world where nothing and no-one is perfect, and you only find out through experience. The tone of the lyrics gets progressively darker as the subject gets older. The verses, the first about being locked in a comfort zone and the second being frustrated at not being able to get out, set the scene for the bridge: if you could give your younger self advice, what would it be?

lyrics

I wish I could set myself free
But I take comfort in routine
I wish I had the fortitude
To make it happen or make it gone
I wish I had the wisdom to know what’s real
And the strength to carry on

I waste so much time
Trying to make sense of everything I see
Those who hate me most
Are just the people living in my head
Are they the ones that I should trust
They’re the ones that seem to make most sense

I cut myself so I can bleed
The guilt, the rage and everything between
In the end I have to admit
When all is said and done
I never had the courage to let things go
Or the strength to be alone

I waste so much time
Trying to make sense of everything I see
Those who think I’m mad
Are just the people living in my head
Are they the ones that I should trust?
Are they the ones I should listen to instead?

I spent my life
Feeding myself into the machine
Please don’t make the same mistakes
You’ll have nothing to show
For your best laid schemes

I waste so much time
Trying to make sense of everything I see
Those who scare me most
Are just the people living in my head
I should have known they should never be trusted
Take my advice don’t ever listen to them
