Lonely Ness

(Hayden Coil)

A hefty helping of alienation and disillusionment from a lonesome protagonist whose name you just want to sneer at. But by the end of the song you realize the lyrics are not just about Ness, but about a much larger cultural divide, a dissonance, a malaise plaguing society as a whole. Where to be a disaffected youth is both cool and shunned, where it's alright to alienate others but God help you when you get older. It's about a culture of loneliness growing comfortable in that funk, then living tired lives of regret, growing old in their underwater caverns, shunning the light that was once so uncooth to bask freely and publicly in.

Loneliness is a comfort When you're playing for time The salmon swims downstream When grown tired of life You'll see me once a year Protruding from the deep You're close for a picture But say "he looks like a creep" (Chorus) Thoughts like water torture A tight fitting vest At his best when he's lonely And he's lonely at best God help you, Lonesome Ness Now I'm not a cynic I'm a realistic guy If you speak your mind You'd better be prepared to die Conversational confessions Testament to my pride XXX XXXXX XXXX XXXX XXXXXXX XXXXXX XXX XXXXX X XXXX XXX XXXXXXX XXXXXXXXX XX XXXXXX XXXX XXXXX XXX XXXX XXXX XXXXX XXX XXXXX XXXX XXX XXXXX XXXXXX XXXX XXX XXXX XXX XX XXXX XXXXX XXX XXXXXXXXX XXXX XX XXX XXXXX XXXXXX

What Happens Today

By Hayden Coil


A short, simple ode to the songs of old that inspire so many tired musicians of today who can't seem to reach those same creative heights, or perhaps care to. A celebration of living in the now, of the punk rock attitude, and of artistic integrity. It's concerned with maintaining the mindset of "what is happening now?" rather than "what happened yesterday and why?"

The Memory Booth

By Hayden Coil


Memories from the past cause the protagonist to start yearning for a woman he once loved, while he was still in a relationship with his loving current wife. It finally eats at him from the inside and his wife is immediately there to comfort him and accept his sins. He realizes his mistake and vows to forget Marie, and embrace his fragile, tender wife, Annabeth.

Holly's Reprise

By Hayden Coil


A man long ago lost the one he loved, and is now confronted with a reanimated version of her, demanding payment for a deal he made long ago on that fateful night. Holly, or this pale, walking imitation of her, is not the young, naive girl he fell in love with. Now he's the naive one, and soon...he won't be anyone. Perhaps she should have been more precise in his wording, perhaps he should have let her go.

Stasis Squalor

By Hayden Coil


A man gets surprisingly good news from a trip to his doctor, and realizes he has reason for hope. He doesn't rightly know what to do with this information and begins to contemplate a brighter future for himself, while simultaneously drawing back from it due to an established comfort with his much developed, brooding nature. By the end of the song is he deciding to finally think positively and change his life for the better? Is he finding himself too far gone, disillusioned and contemplating suicide? It's ambiguous, and it's whatever you feel is apt for you in the moment.

By Cesar Veliz


This song is about the reality of high school or college and how not everyone can be, as the name states, popular. Some people just aren’t destined to be like that and deep down they know it, this is the incarnation of that feeling.
