Angels of Liberty – Monster In Me

 

Monster In Me
There’s a hole inside of me,
And that’s something that I know,
Within me
A shadow I wont show,
Inside

You can’t take away my home
Repair my shattered soul,
I’ve nowhere else to go,
From you regime of control,
Inside

I’ve mirrored your fears
I’ve drowned in my own tears,
I’ve mirrored your fears
I’ve drowned in my own tears,
Inside

I survived your discipline,
And buried precious years,
But I’ve grown
I’m a mirror of your fears
Inside

I’ve mirrored your fears
I’ve drowned in my own tears,
I’ve mirrored your fears
I’ve drowned in my own tears,

Oh! Mama!
You made the monster in me
Oh! Mama!
You!

Oh my brother dear
Did an angel die?
I’m evil.
I survived.
It makes this devil cry,
Inside

I’ve mirrored your fears
I’ve drowned in my own tears,
I’ve mirrored your fears
I’ve drowned in my own tears,
Inside

Oh! Mama!
You made the monster in me
Oh! Mama!
You!

I’ve mirrored your fears
I’ve drowned in my own tears,
I’ve mirrored your fears
I’ve drowned in my own tears

ROME – TO DIE AMONG STRANGERS

 

To Die Among Strangers

To a find a cooler place in the grass
To brave my fire
A jury heard, a sentence passed
To brave my fire

We lust for the wine you bolt
Like all things impure, like all things undead
We beg from these swine
Who told you to love and endure

And to live in our stead
The whores of rome and the kings of france
Have tried to brave my fire
Now the snakes curl up, the curtains part

Will you try to brave my fire?
We lust for the wine you bolt
Like all things impure, like all things undead
We beg from these swine
Who told you to love and endure
And to live in our stead

To find a little place in the grass
Tune up for the funeral march
Keep your treason brittle as glass
You could have been the first
Could have been the last to brave my fire

Tom French Art

 

“Born in 1982, Tom French grew up in Newcastle Upon Tyne, North East England. Tom began his studies at the Newcastle School of Art and Design and went on to graduate from the Sheffield Institute of Art and Design achieving a first class BA Honors in 2005.

His works are predominantly figurative. He carefully combines detailed photorealism with strong elements of abstraction and surrealism, focusing on the reflection of the conscious and subconscious mind. French’s work often treads the fine line between the beautiful and unsettling, combining technically tight, classical charcoal drawings with carefree, loose and ostensibly unfinished abstract forms. By fusing the technical with lively abstraction French brings life and movement to his compositions. His work seamlessly merges the use of academic tradition with contemporary urban realism.”
