about

First single from the upcoming album CHOP OFF THE HEAD (out 2019-11-11). Hello, Mate is an homage to my artistic heroes, and a story about a struggle to keep creating in the face of depression.

lyrics

Hello mate
Meet me at the ending
Hello love
Am I trending?
Hello mate
Meet me at the ending
Hello love
Am I trending?
Hello mate
Meet me at the ending
Hello love
Am I trending?
Hello mate
Meet me at the ending
Hello love

I don't wanna do this
Art anymore
I just take it and ruin it
Trying to keep score
In desperation
Filling the hole
It's empty sensations
For an empty soul

I don't want to feel it
Rap about my pain
No mystery to this shit
And nothing more to gain
Old people know
What I hope to behold
Whether I get to go on
And reach my goals

Hello mate
Meet me at the ending
Hello love
Am I trending?
Hello mate
Meet me at the ending
Hello love
Am I trending?

I didn't want to make it
Have this career
It's all my effort not to quit
Loathing rolled in fear
I put on a sweater
I put on a mask
Life doesn't get better
Just a string of tasks

I don't want to be me
Stuck in this skin
It leaves a mark, you see
Like a secret sin
Stuck in a body
I didn't choose pain
No apologies
Every body the same

Hello mate
Meet me at the ending
Hello love
Am I trending?
Hello mate
Meet me at the ending
Hello love
Am I trending?

Shiver me timbre
A bit overused
A loose cannon
On a short fuse
A throbbing pulse
In my ears
The tinnitus of silence
For the rabbit fears

Hello mate
Meet me at the ending
Hello love
Am I trending?
Hello mate
Meet me at the ending
Hello love
Am I trending?
