  • Hand-Made Original CD-R
    Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    A recent excursion to my old house showed that there were actually a few of the original hand-made Tidal Wave CDs available. These include an 8-page booklet, hand-cut and glued by my own two hands, along with a double-sided tray insert, hand-cut, folded and glued, all in a standard CD jewel case.

    The CDs themselves are simple CD-Rs with the tracks burned onto them, hand-labelled with a black Sharpie.

    Each edition was also hand-numbered on the back of the jewel case insert and also on the discs themselves. Only 25 of these were ever made.

    These will never have a hand-made edition like this ever again.

about

Tidal Wave is a collection of songs written and recorded between 2007 and 2009. The earliest Onslaught Six release, it features me trying my damnedest to find my own musical voice and identity. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't, but I'm still proud of it. I spent most of 2009 tweaking it. Enjoy it, or don't!

"Who dares to use my power?"

Flooding in Enveloping
Dripping in Developing
Water level Never dropping
Deeper tunnel Never stopping

Crashing through Bleeding out
What the fuck Is this about
Harder faster Dripping plaster
Haunting laughter Spells disaster

Innate conseQuential nightmare
Nervous system Mental hardware
Wiring entanGled within flesh
The berskerker Has been possessed

Tidal Wave, Tidal Wave
Tidal Wave, Tidal Wave
Tidal Wave, Tidal Wave
Tidal Wave, Tidal Wave

"Who dares to use my power?
Tell me!"

Tell me!

ReawakenIng the beast
Don't give a shit In the least
Quirking clunking Beat machine
The destroyer Green and mean

Reconfigure overtake
Give the command Annihilate
Leaders state And you obey
Do everything That they say

You're a slave At their command
On the desert In the sand
On the ocean In the skies
On the moon In your eyes

Tidal Wave, Tidal Wave
Tidal Wave, Tidal Wave
Tidal Wave, Tidal Wave
Tidal Wave, Tidal Wave

"Tell me!
Tell me!
You'll pay for this..."

"Time to finish you off!"

You're a slave At their command
On the desert In the sand
On the ocean In the skies
On the moon In your eyes

I'm a slave To their command
On the desert In the sand
On the ocean In the skies
On the moon In your eyes

Tidal Wave, Tidal Wave
Tidal Wave, Tidal Wave
Tidal Wave, Tidal Wave
Tidal Wave, Tidal Wave

I'm a slave To their command
I'm a slave To their command

Flooding in Enveloping
Dripping in Developing
Water level Never dropping
Deeper tunnel Never stopping

On the moon In the skies
On the moon In your eyes

On the moon In the skies
On the moon In your eyes

Track Name: Tear [Apathy Intro]
I gotta...Get out...
I'm gonna Tear right out of here
Track Name: Apathy
And now I look up
Into the sky
I say to myself
"I don't even want to try,"
I see the writing
That's on the wall
I know it's coming
But I still don't want to give my all

Apathy (Apathy)
Apathy (Apathy)
Apathy, hey, hey
Apathy (Apathy)

I can't do this
Anymore
My will is broken
My effort's sore
My head is pounding
My knees are weak
The light of the tunnel is
Starting to look really bleak

Apathy (Apathy)
Apathy (Apathy)
Apathy, hey, hey
Apathy (Apathy)

And now I look up
Into the sky
I say to myself
"I don't really want to die,"
I try to reach out
I know it's here
The time is coming
All that's left inside is fear

Apathy (Apathy)
Apathy (Apathy)
Apathy, hey, hey
Apathy (Apathy)

Apathy (Apathy)
Apathy (Apathy)
Apathy, hey, hey
Apathy (Apathy)

Track Name: Forever Is A Long Time Coming
Forever Is A Long Time Coming
And you're not worth the wait
I've been in this four years running
And now it's gonna change
Think I'm going out tonight
To find me something new
I'm not gonna waste my life
Waiting up for you

I won't wait, no
Won't wait forever
I won't wait
Won't wait forever
I won't wait
Won't wait forever, no
I won't wait
Forever Is A Long Time Coming

Now, life and death are only words
They don't mean a thing
But we all know that words can hurt
Words can burn and sting
You don't have to justify
The meaning of your ways
'Cuz I'm not gonna waste my life
Waiting for another day

I won't wait, no
Won't wait forever
I won't wait
Won't wait forever
I won't wait
Won't wait forever, no
I won't wait
Forever Is A Long Time Coming

Ha ha ha ha...
Yeah...
I'm not gonna wait forever, baby...

Forever Is A Long Time Coming
Forever Is A Long Time Coming
Forever Is A Long Time Coming
Forever Is A Long Time Coming

Forever Is A Long Time Coming
Forever Is A Long Time Coming
Forever Is A Long Time Coming
Forever Is A Long Time
Coming
Track Name: Fruit Gusher

Track Name: Godzilla
With a purposeful grimace and a terrible sound
He pulls the city's high tension wires down
Helpless people on a subway train
Scream to God as He looks in on them
He picks up a bus, and throws it back down
As he wades through the buildings to the center of town

Oh, no,
They say he's gotta go
Go, Go, Godzilla
Oh, no
There goes Tokyo
Go, Go, Godzilla

Godzilla...
GODZILLA!

History shows again and again
How nature points out the follies of man
Track Name: When The Sky Cracked Open
Everything changed
On that fateful day
There were none of us left
You don't care, anyway

And we asked to the sky
As our bodies burned
"Where is our saviour?
When will he return?"

Where were you
When The Sky Cracked Open
Were you wallowing
In your own self-pity
Where were you
When we needed you most
When this wretched virus
Used us as its host
Where were you
When The Sky Cracked Open?

You're not a hero
Not deep inside
You're just a symbol
That you hide behind

You believe yourself
To be without fault
Then why couldn't you save us
From the brutal assault?

Where were you
When The Sky Cracked Open
Were you wallowing
In your own self-pity
Where were you
When we needed you most
When this wretched virus
Used us as its host
Where were you
When The Sky Cracked Open

Save us!

Where were you
When The Sky Cracked Open
Were you wallowing
In your own self-pity
Where were you
When we needed you most
When this wretched virus
Used us as its host
Where were you
When The Sky Cracked Open
Track Name: Moon
[Instrumental]
Track Name: Mancubus Down
This is my favourite game
I'm sitting here again
Repeating the refrain
Changing again, the same

Bent into a new shape
One that I never liked
Taking a mental hike
Follow the red tape

Deep inside my mind is a place I don't ever wanna go
Staring at the wall knowing more than I ever wanted to know
Buried in an avalanche of thoughts, not who I want to be
Somewhere inside this chaos hides someone I used to think was me

Yesterday had a plan
Something to do
Maybe with you
But now here alone I stand

Tomorrow comes a new thought
A change is needed
The thought is seeded
That sounds fair

Deep inside my mind is a place I don't ever wanna go
Staring at the wall knowing more than I ever wanted to know
Buried in an avalanche of thoughts, not who I want to be
Somewhere inside this chaos hides someone I used to think was me

[Keeping the dream alive
Shielded from the outside
Sleeping inside your mind
Hiding inside your hive]

Deep inside my mind is a place I don't ever wanna go
Staring at the wall knowing more than I ever wanted to know
Buried in an avalanche of thoughts, not who I want to be
Somewhere inside this chaos hides someone I used to think was me
