about

I recorded this album on and off between June 2014 and June 2017, it consists mostly of original material and a few updated versions of old songs that I never managed to gig or record with previous bands.
I recorded and mixed this album on headphones so it'd be best enjoyed that way.
If you want to get in touch, you can find me on Twitter @HeavyRiddy
Please enjoy, namaste x

Track Name: Anchors Down
This girl's trouble I feel her on my sweat
She nibbles on her lip and takes her grip
She said it tastes like honey
And I bet she's got teeth that are older than me
She's soldering me to the frame to the frame to the frame
She is a bad girl and she knows it
She's drunk again
That pesky sailor anchors down a flight of stairs
That stare right back at you
She is a sinner and though alarm bells they ring thrice
I'll pay no heed to this advice
A leaf I'll tear, her book will bear one less mapping to her demise
But a postcard sent will have our names on it
Look here I know I've got no tattoos
(I'm blank as a new cassette)
And I know the guys you usually use
(Have got more ink than a gazette)
She's a poison to kill a poison
She is an arsehole
And you know it
You're drunk again
That same wee fella brings you down a flight of stairs And back to start again
This girl's trouble I feel her on my sweat
She nibbles on her lip and shakes her hips
People seem healthy till you know them
It's personal
That pesky sailor set the course
Of course I could contest but he knows what's best
Look here I know I've got no tattoos
(I'm blank as a new cassette)
And I know the guys you usually use
(Have got more ink than a gazette)
She's a poison to kill a poison
Track Name: Don't Let Them Win, Baby
If it all comes to an end I know which artifacts I'd send
Hurtling with great purpose directly into the sun
I've got nothing to hide and it's not for the sake of my pride
You see, something has to have lived for that something to have died
The term legacy's a stretch, write it on an Etch-a-Sketch
And let the seismic events do their work in one last wretch
I've tried positivity but real life got the best of me
I'm far to lazy to arrange or consider option B
It's quite amazing how one thing
Can reduce your hands from tools into something you can wring
Clock out early from your shift
Ignore your colleagues in the lift
It's time to relocate to the border of social order
Wear a ring on a bootlace but keep your standing orders in place
You need to keep your flat if you want a spare room to deface
(Singin')
I was born into this, everything thing turns to shit
The band that you love are playing the pub your ex works at
But you've got nothing to hide
And you have got nobody by your side
Option A was taken in your stride
It's quite amazing how one thing
Can reduce your hands from tools into something you can wring
Track Name: The Tree, The Switchblade & The Engraver
It's been so long since I had a crush
Hey you
My heart has got this pen in a rush
Hey you
I'm dying for a kiss of your lips
Hey you
I'm dying for a grab of your hips
Hey you
You're in my hair, my lungs, my bones
I won't settle for another I'd rather be alone
This sentimant is set to turn around in your favour
That tree, that switchblade and the engraver
Everything you do is success
Hey you
The way your figure deals wae that dress
Hey you
Although I'll never walk through this with you
Want you to know there's just this one girl
And it's you
Track Name: Heavy Riddy
My friend told me a story
But given my condition my mission dictated that I'd forget
Everything everything
Something of a tall tale it was
It inspired me to rip a strip and inspect underneath the gauze
To my surprise it had healed before my eyes
The yarn he spun was one of yours a relayed account he realised
You left air to be cleared and choking are the ones I hold dear
The book that you read to our friends
Was missing a few chapters so after my laughter died down I cringed
At the thought that you got kicks out of this
I should clarify my account
But the morals lowered to do so are staying where they can surmount
Though it's shitty, the only pity deserved
Is credited to how content you are wae pity gained through truth swerved
Your bullshit only charms the flies
Those half truths are just as good as lies
No more self doubt settlements to keep me running
No more preperation for the cadence coming
But living every day as the day I go and get her
Is as crazy as the notion that I can't do better
But it's time to find a balance 'cause I can't stay lonely
Only one night starts the plight I've got to stay stoney
Fuck all the politics and tricks that you've pulled
And enjoy your empty success with the audience you've fooled.
Track Name: Young, Obnoxious & Stupid
I turned 18 the day after 9/11
So I turned my back on this sign the gods were giving
One night I faced them their scorn burnt but left no tan
Just this poorly rendered painting of a handsome man
I got to thinking of other signs I may have missed
Like hurricanes named after girls I shouldn't have kissed
And if I payed heed would he be dimensions apart
From the me with an escape route and a broken heart
Arms coming out the walls
Don't get response calls at all
Twelve years late to the get your shite together show
I had all access, VIP, seats in the front row
On the first day I saw a birds wing get crushed by a bus
It layed on it's back, calm and still, till the next one burst it's guts
Arms coming out the wall
Don't get response calls at all
Nine months later
The traitor shows me nothing
I'm back in business once more
Trading lore from the shop floor
I once believed preconceived things were simpler
No inner whimper based on logic
I'll throw sticks
Now I'll boast I believe in ghosts
Arms coming out the wall
Don't get response calls at all
Track Name: Watchoo Do
Sitting here amongst this mess
In a house by nothing more than address
I try to pull the focus
Every empty everywhere
While my phone rings out right now I need it to fire out flares
I tidy up before I settle down
I feel the choke
A gallery of things I broke
One blur just leads another to another
One thing that I do recall
Ditching more fruitful plans in favour of this withdrawal
And an essential overhaul
As the debris clears networks in my brain
Spark to life and build a bridge to incidents and timeframes
Although it wasn't all bad I'm glad I cleared it all away
And this monster's enjoyed his stay
I will not watch this one decay
So I plan my night before I settle down
It's just me, this meal and all this clearer ground
To avoid the grip of the slipstream
I don't humour notions of what could have been
I wave it off wae the bream
That's all she wrote about last night
That wee monster's in the stars and sleeping tight
Now things they start to feel right
I've left a messy night behind
My gears should run and rarely grind
I won't break down for any length of time
So I plan my night before I settle down
It's just me, a clear plate and the phone I found
And it rings and it rings and it rings
Track Name: Run Like Fuck
Join in at the start of a song
Four verses deep when everyone's stopped along
I'm sorry but I was thinking too far ahead
The light went red from green three times then green back to red
I started a chat on bad weed then moved along
My dad's mates are indifferent to lore of King Kong
I gaurded my laughter on the long walk home
And agreed wae myself I'm better off alone
"I'd like to tank you all for coming tonight"
Echoes through an empty room till you hit the light
Missing days wae pals 'cause you were scared of the park
Are memories that you can just shove in the dark
I was too busy thinking of things to say
To say the things I thought during the course of today
Carefully composing tweets then deleting them
Then later watch the numbers grow for the same thoughts from a friend
Tried to stay aloof for some time
But the truth came out wae the news of a new Dredd design
Apologising as you choke on a piece of phlegm
Is nutso considering you don't like them
You hear the bomb that dropps when they have pulled out all the stops
But not the friendly fire in the room
The others there had more interesting things to share
And points to reach before their fingers start to prune
And their evening can presume
You need to draw a line and find some friends who find the time
To let you crawl through all the shite upstairs
Don't be a prick about it
But don't let them let you doubt it
You bring down some great things from up there
It's time you ended this nightmare
Track Name: Pareidolia
At eight years old I chose what I was chose to do
And called it destiny
See over the years other sweets went in my mixture
That tasted much better to me
To understand why other options seemed reckless
I had to join the occult
The sigils spilled to show that I was just feckless
In the year I became an adult
No one depraved had walked on your grave
It's just cold at this bus stop
It wasn't a ghost or demonic host
That caused this temprature drop
But the bumps in the night
Still take new shapes in my head
And the light switch
Ends its journey after I'm in bed
As far as I know no telly's tried to kill me
In my house on top of this Native American burial ground
I brought the oars in, relied on a higher power
And I started to drift away
It took 30 trips around the sun to see its light
I just built Rome today
But Germanic pressure won't dispirit me
No stepping on cracks of pre destined tracks
Just walking on up the road
And knocking on wood won't do any good
With words that cannot forebode
But the bumps in the night
Still take new shapes in my head
And the light switch
Ends its journey after I'm in bed
As far as I know no telly's tried to kill me
In my house on top of this Native American burial ground.
Track Name: Common Denominator (album version)
The changes started to rattle his cage
Though well accustomed with his rage
The bodies piled three or four higher
When after one he could retire,
Until moonlight whistled his tune.
Was this crisis the product of poor pay
Or his eyebrow turning grey?
The one thing keeping him a man
Was the brush of her hand
Until moonlight whistled his tune.
The branches start to tussle
He stirs his bed of leaves rustle
Another lover, another clue;
A slowly closing bullet wound.
He found just as rings formed around Saturn
The universe left him a pattern,
His curse is his own, best be alone.
Then moonlight whistled his tune.
Before he hangs his wool coat one last time
Without tempting silver bullet fate
It dawns on him to go paw in paw is the only way
Then moonlight whistles his tune.
Track Name: Bowling Green Massacre
The sting doesn't sink in till you stand back
And see you've gone from one to twelve without skipping tracks
One hundred billion people have come and gone
So what's one more if nothing but another love song
I don't want to tether weights
But I have to dive on in
I've been holding my breath since I learned to weigh in
I can't wait to see the limbs torn from you
And your priceless expression after they've uncaged the zoo
While your quest for righteousness is met with laughter
Your children don't deserve the consequence of disaster
I don't want to tether weights
But I have to dive on in
I've been holding my breath since I learned to weigh in
If you hold on to times that you once knew
For that reason alone
Please die
It's time you shook that mortal coil
You're better served as soil
We can't wait for you to die
You'll be remembered as a hurdle
And when your eyeballs start to curdle
We'll all be moving on
Photo there on the mantle piece
Despite the crease just underneath the vacant eyes of Denise
The auld boy says it was the happiest day
But the bride of honour just in shot's got something else to say
I don't want to tether weights
But I have to dive on in
I've been holding my breath since I learned to weigh in
If you hold on to times that you once knew
For that reason alone
Please die
Track Name: Little Honours
It's all just fucking daydreams in the end
With lots of little honours to defend
A toe tag full of average grades is fathering this jack of all trades
But the mother of all problems won't count me out
See there's a bag of cats in me
I wish I could drown at sea
'Cause they'll claw and scratch till I lift the hatch
But I've grown to like it
Maybe one fine day help will come my way
But I'll be fucked if I'm going this alone
And I'll promise her I'll promise her I'll win
It's all just fucking daydreams in the end
With lots of little honours to defend
A toe tag full of average grades is fathering this jack of all trades
But the mother of all problems won't count me out
My attention span's easy to please
Illustrate my point wae keys
I get lost at fares, never seen cross haires
Not for want of trying
Effort's in my heart needing a kick start
But it't budge so until then
It's all just fucking daydreams in the end
With lots of little honours to defend
A toe tag full of average grades is fathering this jack of all trades
But the mother of all problems won't count me out
Track Name: Sad Songs
My gut's between my shoulder blades I pray no conviction's wrong
A curse from each decision made means the death of another song
I can't put on a movie or play something groovy
With you on my dressing gown
My chest will combust if once sat on this
I learn what drove old Dixie down
These stabs of though that's got my gut taught
Aren't cutting me any slack
Endurance assures me your concept of boundaries
Would break this camel's back
I would kill to embrace you
I know just to taste you
Would take me to our home town
But if I swallow my pride one more time I'd surely drown
And these old flames bring new burns
So my heart breaks and shakes her
On the next day a sun will set
We'll fuck all night she'll feel alright but I'll never forget
I'm alive with the feeling that I wish i was otherwise
I'm alive with the feeling that I wish i was otherwise
Nothing says I take for granted everything we've got
Quite like spending time alone wae those explicit with their thoughts
There'll be no ultimatum, you know how I hate them
I've dealt wae this far too long
So in favour of my sanity I'll sacrifice one song
And these old flames bring new burns
So my heart breaks and shakes her
Now the last sun on us has set
And I'm going home 'cause I know I'd rather be alone with
A bunch of sad songs.
Track Name: The Weight
A home in the hills cluttered with the things a family own
My dad, his friends and poker
Red Venom and a Super Soaker
Home videos of road trips in an LTD wagon
Drinkin' in LA's for kids, now I'm over 26
I swear my child won't dewll upon all the things they've never done
Or miss the things they've never had
'Cause I'll build walls to keep the bad things out
And all our whereabouts accounted for
Parent's Night that's plural and affection as if it's normal
Scolding rows designed to fix
An audience of two for your card tricks
Ratings increase as you master the shows and mingling
Awards will build a sturdy path
And everything will be designed to last
I swear my child won't dewll upon all the things they've never done
Or miss the things they've never had
'Cause I'll build walls to keep the bad things out
And all our whereabouts accounted for
Don't get me wrong
Every day I'm still stunned by what you done
You took one egg and a small but somehow still mixed a sponge
I'm still around 'cause you planted these feet firmly into the ground
Nothing you done stings
It's what absence brings
That brought me to this
It brought me to this
Smart TV's for ten years after they've become obsolete
Blu rays from a librarary 'cause Blockbuster will only die wae me
No rooms to spare in a house that's had no time to grow old
A cluttered shelf hangs on the wall
It'll never fall
Under the weight, the weight of it all
Track Name: The Button
I'm back in your neighbourhood, baby
My head went to one place and my feet soon take chase down this road
There's never a right time to swing by
But like you said - "a light will always be left on for you"
How fucking cruel, the pull of the animal in us
If I turned to see the road behind me was blocked I'd plant roots
The days, months and weeks in the way of me baby
Would burn a lot quicker with your torch to guide me but still
The guilt forever wet on my head, oh it hinders
The cinders I'd leave, my last reprieve, would soon turn to mud
I feel you near, so near
The cheer of an audience from a TV nowhere to be seen
Is you kerosene
But I'm fucking done doing this to me
Now I'm back on track but still in the black
Your light's on down a road long gone milles behind me
There's never a right time to swing by
But like you said - "a light will always be left on for you"
How fucking cruel, the pull of the animal in us
If I turned to see the road behind me
Track Name: All My Monsters
Get back to a better place
With no trace of where you'd gone
Rip the foundations up, it was like that all along
Everybody's waiting to go home, just do what they expect you to
Gone, they'll be gone
By the time I've built myself a time and a place to belong
So when all my monsters come out
I'll be prepared for what they might do
I know I've trained them well enough to know just who
When the smoke clears and the sky lifts
I know I won't be impervious
But the space left in my guts is worth the warst stations
It's good to see your face, don't you dare phone, just come round
I love that you embrace the piles of bodies on the ground
Now I've formed a duo we can duel wae them
I can conform to what content means
Gone, they'll be gone
By the time I've built myself a time and a place
It won't be long until they find us here
But they won't rob us of our better years
And they won't whisper their way through our trust
We'll spot them miles away kicking up dust
Chanting "they love us"
They love us
No knots on my shoulder they can grip
And although arriving here has been no trip
I'll make sure
Gone, they'll be gone
By the time I've built myself a time and a place to belong
When all my monsters come out.
