An interpretation of the truly agonising experience of being totally ignored.


Never you once complained
or tried it on for the fame
the knots in my chest the pain
burn bright though your memory fades

And it could be me but I'll never know
you hide in places that I can't go
you count down like the minutes to the grave
And apologies I'm beginning to see
I drive you places we've already been just to
waste time like a child in a game

Your violent contours again..
stop now through the light I see your breath
girl you're on and off like I've never seen
the nights as dark as its ever been



from The Operator EP, released May 22, 2015
Written recorded and mixed by Apera. Mastered by Chris Chetland at KOG Studios.
