about

Richard Egan Malmö, Sweden

here's a little home recorded experiment of stuff, my friends always tell me i never release most of the stuff i do, and that is true to be honest because i see song writing as a gift to help with my mental health..
so when the song is done i feel like in a way it has served it's purpose..
hope you're good and i hope you dig the roughness and weirdness of these tunes..

Track Name: So Weird
you wake up thirsty
you have pink skin
we speak so softly
of the noise within

we were the city's prey
we had nothing left to want
but our needs appear deeper
than our needless fronts

and we both know
yeah we both know it always gets so weird

too many people trying to cling on
too much decisions lets not make them
all they need to know is
you can never own someome
you cannot be close to them
only in that moment

and we both know
yeah we both know it always gets so weird
we lay so low
we almost disappeared

oh the randomness of meeting one and another
another memory to remember with the others
a new experience we placed within each other

and there was no one else around
and when you lay there next to me
i was focused on the sound
and how it's never really quiet


what about the future ?
who can ever say
this is the present and it's presently okay

but we both know
yeah we both know it always gets so weird
Track Name: Real Peace
mornings the weakest
the bed knows that i've been worried
boring anxiety

tantrums within me
magnets attracting the light
from the air that carries the love i need
to breathe

off in the distance
where real peace has whispered my name
away from the networks
where everyone's chase is the same

the need to be right
but try as i might i could not feel real peace

don't need these feathers
a grey bird ascending away from the thunder bolts
as the lightning strikes
cities below

all souls together
backs broke on their particular tethers
trying to figure out how they
belong in a world where they thought they would end up a king

off in the distance with real peace just out of my view
i'm taking steps now to understand what i can do
i've wasted so much
just trying to touch what i thought was real peace

real peace

i spend so much time on it
always trying to figure it
but thinking is the wrong thing to do
right in the face of it
a wing shoe with a rope tie to keep me in place
i untied the lace and stared in the face

of real peace
Track Name: Nature's Teeth
someone told me years ago
that the spirit stays after the body goes
after the petal falls there comes another rose

growing up you feel so strong
but that confidence doesn't last very long
and then you witness someone's final song
you're only left signs and connections

same old wind.. blowing
i feel bite marks on my skin
natures teeth.. showing
what's within ?

a bullethole in a barndoor
a pillar of light across a swedish floor
my baby sees she is so pure

vertigo from the depth inside
it's endless now it cannot die
no matter who is left
or where attention lies

same old wind.. blowing
i feel bite marks on my skin
natures teeth.. showing
what's within ?

wake in the night
with a memory stong
did that really happen ?
a part of our lives
just disappeared
before we realised
it was gone

same old wind.. blowing
i feel bite marks on my skin
natures teeth.. showing
what's within ?
Track Name: Never Seen You
sun sits behind a stain glass frieze
as the colour starts to set the impression bleeds
as the wisdom of the age really bothers me
could i float between the centuries ?

your sister brings an axe just to knock it down
tell your brother to relax we don't need nervous clowns
any make up that you use is coming out of your pay
so you better make money, tell a joke or two that's funny

it's you who can slow it down
you hear the beauty in every sound
just so you don't feel deaf
in a world full of music

what if i never seen you

i was over thinking things
it got to the point where i couldn't sing
it got to the point where i didn't mind
if i was living or i was dying

i was over thinking things

what if i'd never seen you
Track Name: Running in the Rain
who needs to see the future if it don't look bright
we've got another or so to get it right
how can we understand it til the baby comes
stop with the thought of money these ungracious sums

running in the rain
Track Name: Counting Stars in a Tunnel of Pure Light
i'm a stalker not a politician
that's how i got myself into this position
dedicated solitude

i hold a mirror up in front of the hive
just to check that it is still alive
for there are definitely parts of the mind
already fried, zombified
counting stars in a tunnel of pure light

silence in the afternoon
i mean we wouldn't wanna speak too soon
anyway i way prefer this old room
minus the noise

to counteract what i thought that i lacked
i learned to copy how normal people act
it seems to make them feel more relaxed
it sure helps me with me with my fright
counting stars in a tunnel of pure light

pure light - from some constellation
pure light across the sky
in my blood, fighting anger

like a boxer on a barber shop wall
i know that the past is a weight to us all
but you can't walk around with that spite
i should take my own advice
counting stars in a tunnel of pure light
Track Name: Old Bad Me
i had a scare on the stairs
i saw an old ghost who was loitering there
haunting the same place it used to appear

i says right, get a life
the futures no cure for the past but tonight
the present's a doctor the medicine's light
prescribe you a song you can take for the fright

here in the world waiting for life
i chanced on a song it didn't belong to me
in my defense living is spent chasing the crest of a wave
you can't blame a ghost, it relies on a host to breathe

old bad me i say goodbye
i happen to believe in something i'm surprised
by nothing
and those crimes were only doing harm
to old bad me

i could tell by his eyes
the phantom was shocked by the living surprise
his chains wouldn't work for once in their lives

i caught a whiff of the stiff
crawling back up the place where he lives
the past is just mould
he can keep it, it's his

here overground, watching the clouds
chasing the shapes as they fall
fixing my gaze on positive ways and thoughts

despite all my planning
something uncanny is sleeping beneath where i think
and sending me shivers and whispered delivers of loss

old bad me i say goodbye
i happen to believe in something i'm surprised
by nothing
and those crimes were only doing harm
to old bad me

old bad me i stood around some attic
trying to force out laughter it just sounds so tragic
and those crimes were only doing harm
to old bad me
Track Name: Without You
once we had a love worth keeping
there was no time to bored
different notes of course
but always the same chord

and the wind
it can hardly fill the gap
that swallowed our map
it's so weird
not seeing you
or feeling you

i know time
does its job
on all planes
with one hand it heals the wound shut
the other one slyly fingers open up a new cut

it seems long
was it so long ago ?
a beautiful evening had begun
i went to text you i'd forgotten
that you ha gone

well i'm alive
at least i'm alive
but without you mama
without you

grief goes
but i never knew
that it would come back
in waves
to tease the heart
with what's missing
certain days are like ice
and they melt
those before
but traces of love still flow
with traces of private things
that nobody else knows
i'm alive yeah
but i'm hardly even here
each minute is fear

without you

yeah i'm alive
at least i'm alive
but without you mama
without you
