about

HEAD NOISE
What can I say about this song that's not already in one of the verses. To be honest, I went through some personal issues of my own and had a nervous break down during the making of this record. Probably because I was trying to juggle too many things in my life and putting to much pressure on myself to constantly outdo myself (amongst other things). Writing this song was therapeutic but once it was recorded, I contemplated on whether to release it or not because it was very personal and quite exposing for me. Then after a lot of discussion with my manager and fiancee, decided it was probably a good idea to share with others some of the hurt, pain, confusion & thoughts I was going through in hope that they may relate and maybe speak up themselves to help overcome their own demons. We lost a good friend to suicide a few years ago and no one really knew the extent of his issues because of the lack of communication. I would hate to lose anymore friends like this. So I thought, fuck it. I'm speaking up.

I originally wrote over 12 long verses for this song and cut it down to just 2. Also had it as a more upbeat dance version but thought I'd keep this one mellow so you could a better grasp of what is being said on the record. But the dance version was also sick, so I made it the bonus track of the album.

lyrics

VERSE 1
MY BRAIN TICKS 24-7
DREAMS, IDEAS, REGRETS NON STOP
BOTTLED UP ANXIETY
THAT I WISH I COULD JUST SWITCH OFF
MY FRIENDS PARTY WAY TOO MUCH
BUT I REALLY CAN'T SAY TOO MUCH
COS HERE I AM HAVING SHOTS WITH YOU
JUST TO HIDE THE FACT THAT MY HEADS FUCKED UP
BUT I JUST WANNA GET FUCKED UP
FROM THE STRESS BUILT ALL WEEK LONG
BUT ME THINKING THE ANSWER'S
IN THE BOTTOM OF THE BOTTLES WRONG
AND IT SEEMS EVERYONE'S MOVING ON NOW
BARELY EVEN GET TIME TO HANG OUT
BABY SHOWERS, BUCKS, ENGAGEMENTS
WEDDING TABLE PLAN ARRANGEMENTS
AND I LOVE THIS PHASE OF MY LIFE
ABOUT TO MAKE MY GIRL MY WIFE
TO BE HONEST, YEAH IT SCARES ME
BUT I NEVER FELT SO READY
ONE THING THAT I NEED TO MENTION
I SHOULD PAY HER MORE ATTENTION
RATHER THAN SPILLING MY GUTS ON SONGS
AND WRITE MY WRONGS WITH MORE AFFECTION
IT MIGHT BE THE MOST I'VE SPOKEN
ABOUT US OUT IN THE OPEN
BUT I HOPE IT COMMUNICATES
THE LOVE I HAVE FOR OUR FUTURE SAKE
IF YOU LOVE THEM THEN LET THEM KNOW
BEFORE YOU SEE THEM GO
THAT’S WHY I SPEAK MY MIND AND EXPRESS MYSELF
COS VOICING TROUBLES JUST MIGHT HELP

PRE-CHORUS
I’M DROWNING IN MY HEAD NOISE
I’M DROWNING IN MY HEAD NOISE

CHORUS
I GOT THESE WHISPERS DEEP IN MY MIND
AND THEY'RE TURNING INTO SHOUTS
I GOT THIS NOISE DEEP INSIDE OF MY HEAD
AND I NEED TO GET IT OUT
AND IT FEELS LIKE
I'M DROWNING IN MY OWN HEAD NOISE
WHAT I NEED NOW
IS TO LET IT ALL OUT
HEAD NOISE

VERSE 2
I PUT TOO MUCH PRESSURE ON MYSELF
TOO OBSESSED TO IMPRESS THE WORLD
FEAR OF FAILING, LACK OF TRAINING
TOOK ITS TOLL UPON MY HEALTH
DAY BY DAY, I CLEAN THE MESS
INSIDE MY HEAD TO AVOID THE STRESS
KEEP MY EYE ON THE PRIZE ALL TIMES
AND FOLLOW MUM AND DADS FOOTSTEPS
ALL THE YEARS ON STRUGGLE STREET
SURROUNDED BY BRICKS AND CONCRETE
3 YOUNG KIDS AND 2 JOBS EACH
MADE US HUMBLE IN DEFEAT
BUILT THIS THING FROM THE GROUND UP
ALOT OF FANS NOW DIGGIN MY SOUND
BUT JUST LIKE A CHILEAN MINER
STILL CONSIDERED UNDERGROUND
BUTS THAT’S COOL I'LL WAIT MY TURN
(THAT'S COOL I'LL WAIT MY TURN)
I GUESS I'LL WAIT IN LINE
FUCK THAT IT'S MY TIME TO SHINE
THATS WHY I WORK SO DAM HARD
TO ONE DAY OWN A BIG BACKYARD
AND A HOUSE THAT WE NEVER HAD
SO THE GRAND KIDS CAN RUN AMOK GO MAD
WON'T QUIT TILL WE GET THAT DIRT
IT MIGHT BE TOUGH AND THE PAIN MIGHT HURT
BUT I WANT IT MORE THAN THE FEAR ITSELF
AND WITH A CLEAR MIND, I KNOW IT HELPS
WE GET LOST JUST TO FIND OURSELVES
A LIFE WORTH LIVING IS LIFE WITH HEALTH
SPEAK YOUR MIND, EXPRESS YOURSELF
COS VOICING TROUBLES JUST MIGHT HELP
