Waltimus Prime Awesome music. Lyrics just vague enough to make you think about what they mean, and great melodies to keep you interested. 'Escapologist' and 'Made It' were particularly good. Favorite track: Escapologist.

about

A collection of songs written between November 2015 and April 2016, bundled together in this little collection.

Trying to use my words to capture my thoughts about where my life is. Circular reasoning, circular conversations, repeating and repeating. I just keep hoping it leads somewhere.

When possible I tried to use the first take of each performance.

Recorded at RMIT Melbourne Campus.

Track Name: Escapologist
Fill me up with water
Fill me up with water
Watch me do the impossible
As my lungs fill with air

Fill me up with water
Fill me up with water
Watch me do the impossible
As my lungs fill with air

Fill me up with water
Fill me up with water
Watch me do the impossible
As my lungs fill with air

Fill me up with water
Fill me up with water
Watch me do the impossible
As my lungs fill with air

Fill me up with water
Fill me up with water
Watch me do the impossible
As my lungs fill with air

Fill me up with water
Fill me up with water
Watch the steam blow out my ears
Watch the sweat drip out my skin
Watch the spit fall off my tongue
Watch the tears stream from my eyes

Watch me drown
Watch me do the impossible
Watch me drown
As my lungs fill with air
Track Name: Camera Shy
Everyone is only one thing

I think you’ve got the the wrong idea

Just look closer

The house is really empty

I forget who knows who

Just remember

It’s easy

They’re just different

From you

That makes it easier

Don’t you think?

Oh
My sight grows dark
And I care far too much

Oh
You taught me how to hate
Told me I was wrong. That's ok

Seven Years and I’m right in the middle of it
Seven Years and I’m right in the middle of it

You never know you’re in that much danger
Like the flicker of a smile on the face of a stranger

Well it’s seven years and I’m right in the middle of it
Seven Years and I’m right in the middle of it

Today is the day
When I turn my life around

Tomorrow is the day
When I turn my life around

I’ll turn my life around

Around

Oh
Throw me a life
I’ll come crashing down at midnight

Oh
But it’s gotta be true
Only has meaning when it happened to you

Is it really you?

Or are you Camera shy?
Camera shy
Camera shy
Camera shy
Track Name: Set in Stone
I’m not joking when I say,
Sometimes it’s nice to laugh
We sit and listen to stories
We’ve already heard a billion times before

It’s like walking home
Every step is comforting and warm
Under covers through the storm

And I’m not kidding when I say,
Sometimes I think back to
The last day I didn’t worry
About the smallest little details of my life

It was a while ago
You know, I’m not sure if there was one at all
Smiling faces on my walls

It’s all set in stone
And it would be so easy
It’s all set in stone
And it would be so easy

Please listen when I say
Sometimes it’s nice to know
Each day is getting better
And things just aren’t the way they used to be

Sure is a nice thought
And nice thoughts sometimes turn out to be true
Like the thoughts I had for you
On a bench at platform two

It’s all set in stone
And it would be so easy
It’s all set in stone
And it would be so easy

I don’t wanna be remembered in a million years
I don’t wanna be remembered in a thousand years time
I don’t wanna be remembered a hundred years from now
I don’t wanna be remembered when all the lives I know are over

On a distant day
Maybe a Friday
In a photograph
I don't wanna be remembered by you
Like that

All I want is to be thought about today
I just wanna be thought about today

I just wanna be thought about today
I just wanna be thought about today
I just wanna be thought about
Track Name: Overtaking an Ambulance
Leave us to our devices
Leave us to our false idols
Leave us to temptation
Then leave us alone

Where did all my patience go?
It’s right where I left it.
I saw a man in a minivan
Overtaking an ambulance.
Everyone says I’m paranoid
I hear them when my back is turned.
History is ignorance
And ignorance is some guy I met at a pub

Leave us to our devices
Leave us to our false idols
Leave us to temptation
Then leave us alone

We all need a little death
Tall tales for short attention spans
But now he’s just a dead guy
He doesn’t have any say in it
Open minded funeral
I’m glad you’re not my only friend
You’re free to live a lonely life
Now don’t you see it was freedom held you back?

Leave us to our devices
Leave us to our false idols
Leave us to temptation
Then leave us alone

Be excellent to each other, now
Those wise dudes from the future say
Now my brain is smarter than I am
I’m topical facting my life away
Is anyone still listening?
I have opinions on everything
But I’m helplessly crushed underneath
Those books I always meant to read

Leave us to our devices
Leave us to our false idols
Leave us to temptation
Then leave us alone

Then leave us alone
Then leave us alone
Alone
Alone
Track Name: Made it
My mind is emptying out
I've got nothing to write about
I want to do something with my life
I want to do something with my life

Thinking in the dark
People leave a mark
A light

I’m screaming "Don’t do it again"
"Don’t do it, don’t go the way you always go"
Cos I can’t stand repeating myself
Repeating myself

I could just give in
Just stop wallowing
I might

But first I’ll see the sight
I’ve wanted all this time
The light

I'm turning it off
And walking away
Forgetting my problems
Forgetting my name

It’s not even real
It’s not even real
I didn’t even say it
It’s not even real

I talk way too much
I argue a lot
I overthink shit
I really should stop
Even this is indulgent

Though I'm still unsure

But this is me
This is me
This is me
This is me
This is me
This is me
This is me
This is me

And I would gladly wake up to this every day
I would gladly wake up to this every day
Every day I would gladly wake up

Every day
Every day
Every, every, every day
