about

"Unrust" was written and recorded immediately following my prior album "The Changing Tides". The album was never officially completed as towards the end of the recording process I lost all the data for one of the key songs on the record and in frustration I abandoned the project to work on what would become "Acean". The "04" on the cover refers to it being my 4th full length solo album, and is also a nod to The Postman Syndrome for their album "Terraforming" which is where I got the idea (and is one of my all-time favourite albums).

Vocals have been removed from these versions (with a few exceptions) to focus on the music, since at the time I was an inexperienced singer so my vocals weren't great. One song features full vocals because I do not have an instrumental mix and the masters were lost.

Track Name: With My Words (demo)
With my words I could elevate you
And with my words I could condemn you
So it's really all up to you
Should I speak the truth?

I have the power to save you
Or I could just sit and stare
Do I respect you?
That's why you should choose to care
Maybe it's not that important to you
But words can be funny little things
They can work to cement your reputation
Or bring you everlasting shame

Do you want me
To tell it how it is
Or are you happy
With the history I've created?

With my words I could paint you
And with my words I could taint you
Make you into a work of art
or tarnish your image forever

I could easily destroy you
And I could make it seem fair
Do I want to break you?
That's why you should care
Maybe it's not that important to you
But words can be funny little things
They can work to cement your reputation
Or bring you everlasting shame

Do you want me to tell them all your lies
Or are you afraid they'll despise you?
I have the knowledge to teach you
And the vision to beautify you
But are you willing
To know me otherwise?

Without even trying
I've made you king in their eyes
Without ever lying
I've justified all your crimes
Track Name: Decompression Chamber (demo)
Why does the sky always contract
When my head is in the clouds?
It seems I've finally begun
To lose touch with myself

Beside the point I'm behind the line
And they won't wait for me
Knowing that it's a crime
I'm the one to take the fall
Because they stole my alliby again

All my friends have disarmed
Just when I needed a hand
They've been watching me slip
But I'd never drag them down

I always forgive but they always forget
Gave them too many chances to sell me out
One day I'll learn from my mistakes
And regret not waking up sooner
To this reality
That you have created for me
But I liked the old one better
I'm allowed to right?

So maybe I'll spend a night alone and think
Accept the things I always deny
All the accidents and mistakes
That I'm responsible for
It's time to get over this all
Time to get this working somehow
And restore your faith in me

In a decompression chamber

Why does the sky always contract
When my head is in the clouds?
It seems I've lost contact
With the one who helps the most
All my friends have disarmed
Just when I needed a hand
They've been watching me slip
But I'd never drag them down
Track Name: The Need demo (clip)
(in this portion of the song)

want to be | fill the hole
the remedy | want the need
to her pain | take the pain
keep her sane | to my brain
keep her safe | till I go insane
keep her safe | so inhumane
love in her name | this love's in vain
Track Name: Wavering (demo)
I could never love you
Time always takes those feelings away from me
You'd have to be with me forever
Or your memory would fade away

And I know you can't promise me that
Nor can I promise that to you
So enjoy me now and only now
Cause we'll never be the same again

Don't forget me if you can help it
Hearts will find their way across the divide
You inspire me to do all that I can
To eliminate the reasons that we have to hide

I can not be what you need
I have insecurities
Though you make me forget them
Temporarily they're still in me
But I want you to see
Everything that I could be
What I could do for you
Don't worry about me

I'm okay if you can believe it
Your survival is more important to me
Your eyes have seen so much evil
I want to wipe your retinas clean

I'm wavering
Because you're unsure of me
and I can't seem to make you see
That this goes far beyond me

Wavering
I cling
To a dream
That's fading in me
