about

Out through Yodelay Records and co-produced by Red Black and Roni Shewan, Flawed is a blend of acoustic and electronic elements, with subtle instrumentation, East-Asian percussion and sophisticated vocal layering. A moody exploration of trip-hop, the song references ambient, lounge and jazz genres, exploring lyrical themes of self-loathing, depression and personal growth.

lyrics

So now you know I'm flawed
seems everybody out there's somehow keeping score
Take me back again, let me be reborn
free of cuts and bruises, scars and scorn

My charming suit of armour has completely worn away
and you can finally view the damage in the clearer light of day
I nearly had you cornered love, nearly had you fooled
but you cunningly outwitted me with time.

Abstain from me
suit yourself
Stay away from me
Abstain!

So now you know I'm flawed
seems everybody out there longs to be adored
Turn the other cheek, cast another stone
pray that past misgivings can be left alone

A cold island of anger is a horrid place to play
hands against a bell jar, glass gets in the way
I nearly had you figured out, nearly had you pinned
but there's always someone better down the line

Abstain from me
commit yourself
Stay away from me
Abstain!
