The Patient Sound & Vision

About The Patient

"The Patient" was my first real foray into hard rock, with a little bit of a nod to some of the feel of one of my earliest songs, "Echo Papa". It was the first song I released after I left the record label with which I'd previously been signed for two years. As such, I attempted to come out firing on all cylinders, filming my first ever music video in the process!

Inspired by C.S. Lewis's "The Screwtape Letters", the song is about temptation and corruptions of the heart, a subject I would revisit much throughout the creation of Middle Aegis, as well as later on in songs like "Wait of The World".

Release Date: November 24, 2009

The Patient Lyrics

The Patient

For all you know
I'm just a whisper in your ear
And a moment that will pass
Don't let it show now
You'd rather leave things
Unsaid
Undone

But I just want a little look inside
So I can get a piece of your heart
Yeah I promise I won't be denied
If you get lost I'll give you the ride
Cos I'm waiting
Your honest days are numbered
I'm aching
Forgotten face
Your honest days are gone

For all you have
There's no moment of truth
Waiting for your name
And there's no black and blue
If your knees don't burn
Then your heart sure will

But I just want a little look inside
So I can get a piece of your heart
Yeah I promise I won't be denied
If you get lost I'll give you the ride
Cos I'm waiting
Your honest days are numbered
I'm aching
Forgotten face
Your honest days are gone

I wanna know
What you're thinking
I could sure use a bit of your help
I wanna know
What you're dreamin
Please don't leave me sitting here by myself

Cos I'm waiting
Your honest days are numbered
I'm aching
Even with God's Grace
In the stardust haze
I'm waiting
Your honest days are numbered
I'm aching
Forgotten face
Your honest days are gone

What
Went
Wrong

Words

I'm biting my tongue like an idiot
You're waving your flag like you've taken me down
You won't go the long way 'round
You're waking me up in the dead of night
I'm calling your bluff like I'm picking a fight
Is that what you wanted?

Well there's nothing I can say
There's no promise I can fake
I just don't believe your words
And I don't want to hear them
I just don't believe your words
And you won't believe anything at all

You're shaking your head like you won't give in
I'm laying my claim to this moment in time
It's nothing that I'd confide
I'm holding back words that would break you up
You're hitting the rails like you're coming undone
You better hold on

Well there's nothing I can say
There's no promise I can fake
I just don't believe your words
And I don't want to hear them
I just don't believe your words
And you won't believe anything at all

There's nothing to pretend
There's no rules left to bend
The secret's out
But you wouldn't hear it over
You couldn't hear it over yourself

You're a ticking timebomb of a hurricane
You're a betting man's last chance call
I'm tying my hands
Discretion be damned
Cos I can see the writing's on the wall

Well there's nothing I can say
There's no promise I can fake
I just don't believe your words
And I don't want to hear them
I just don't believe your words
And you don't have a clue
I just don't believe your words
And I don't want to hear them
I just don't believe your words
And you won't believe anything at all
