martin corey Not since the 1980s post-punk era have I enjoyed such exquisite music. These are 'bedroom' recordings, home grown. organic, created by a mistress of the craft. Beautiful, wistful tunes un-ecumbered by the dead weight of the music industry. Wonderfully varied and experimental, they remain folk songs in the most complimentary sense of the term.

No Control 03:25
What’s the point in missing out Not sure what they all fuss about I am only twenty-three and live my life through other beings The futures only mystery The running theme is misery I am only twenty-three and live my life through other beings HAAAAAA x4 What’s for you is not for me And I prefer reality I am only twenty-three and live my life through other beings HAAAAAA x4 Grey cloud Grey background Grey cloud What’s the point in missing out Not sure what they all fuss about I am only twenty-three and live my life through other beings The futures only mystery The running theme is misery I am only twenty-three and live my life through other beings

Emotional being It’s clear to see That I’m on my own, in here A messed up cloud It’s caused everything To feed back I don’t see it now I don’t see how I look out and all I see Is misery and mystery If it feels right Then I’m on my own, in here A messed up cloud It’s caused everything To feed back I don’t see it now I don’t see how I look out and all I see Is misery and mystery If it feels right Then I’m on my own, in here

Eyes Closed 02:08
Week to go, you feel the pain But it’s not yours and it’s not tame Heaven knows where we all go But someone knows there’s something more Closed eyes Closed mind The sky tonight Is too wide Heaven knows where we all go But someone knows there’s something more Closed eyes Closed mind The sky tonight Is too wide

Aloof 03:36
Some things seem aloof And you’re not sure what to do And a little part of you Finds it hard to get through The man on his way to work He doesn’t think about the earth And a little part of you Finds it hard to get through Take one step, then go forwards Take one step, then go sideways Take one step, then go upwards Take one step, then go backwards We always tell the truth With feelings you cannot reduce And a little part of you Finds it hard to get through If you look at tomorrows moon It will make you feel less blue And a little part of you Finds it hard to get through The girl on her way to work She doesn’t think about the earth And a little part of you Finds it hard to get through Take one step, then go forwards Take one step, then go sideways Take one step, then go upwards Take one step, then go backwards

Empathy 03:36
Superficial empathy Invisible anxiety All my plants are dying on me I watered them with my tears Well, run it down, let it out, talk about it Forgetting insecurities Reliving past impurities All my friends are flaking on me They must have someone else to see Well, straighten up, keep it in, forget about it Don’t give me a man and ask me to relate Got no introductory Claim no authenticity All I’ve got’s my feelings And I’ve got sweet memories Well, I listened to it, I think it’s a hit, forget about it, I don’t really know The symptoms of maturity Self-imposed security All my thoughts have gone to be A fixture of their thoughts on me Well, if it makes, you feel okay, understand it Don’t give me a man and ask me to relate Don’t put me to work but ask me to create

Write it on a piece of paper Put it in a glass of water Stir every fifteen minutes Sip every half hour Put it in a bottle Shake it really hard Bang it against your hand a few times each time you have a sip

Door Mat 02:52
Every dog will have its day I am glad I moved away I know where you’re coming from You can’t use me like a door mat Your mat, you’re mad All of you will eat today Cause mummy’s here and she’s here to stay Daddy told you to get revenge I know where you’re coming from A place you rely upon Respect should not be off and on You treat me like a door mat

Don't Doubt 01:43
When I was sad, I would write a song But writing a song now just feels wrong If I remove my negative thoughts Before the creative process is gone Something good might come out of it Or maybe I will end up feeling less shit

Necessities 01:57
Fast broadband and a smart TV iPhone 5 and an iced coffee This is the way that I need to be And these are the things I need Fast broadband and a smart TV (the necessities) iPhone 5 and an iced coffee (the necessities) I will form a memory A memory you cannot seize Avocado on toasted sourdough Turmeric tonic and pistachio gelato These are the things I need to grow (the necessities) And this is the way that I need to go (the necessities) I will form a memory A memory you cannot seize x3

Two Thoughts 02:30
You told me if we talk about our dreams I would see you there that evening I perceived it as a true thing Mine are better than reality Disconnected from all I see Floating through society In the dream you tell me it’s not real An amalgamation of insanity I perceived it as a true thing Mine are better than reality Disconnected from all I see Floating through society

The End 03:27
If you want a better planet Pop the shield of make believe Don't depend, on someone else Time reverses in the ministry Think it's fine Let it decline We all pretend It's not the end Nobody's there Nobody cares If you see the other side It's a shock to the fantasy Things are made, then cast away Tomorrow's just another day Think it's fine Let it decline We all pretend It's not the end We think it's fine Let it decline We all pretend It's not the end We think it's fine Let it decline We all pretend But in the end Nobody's there Nobody cares
