about

Cameron Roxburgh Scotland, UK

Carrying around a maturity and brave sense of experimentalism some artists twice his age lack, Cameron and long-term collaborator Callum set their roots acoustic songwriting against off-beat lyrics, unusual song structures and brash angular guitar work.
Cameron is out to make a personal connection with the listener, and to hone a sound that stands apart from the traditional singer-songwriter model

Track Name: Badaka
You take that fork and pierce it. (Oh Badaka)
You slice and dice up your life. (Oh Badaka)
You sort it out or at least you try. (Oh Badaka)
Tell me friend please tell me why. (Oh Badaka)

Now you’re not a self centred arsehole.
That cannot stand people being happy with themselves.
But you think you are, but apparently you are not so pick a side.
Now please tell me please tell me why, now don't start to cry.

Now you’re fighting those wars.
And as you do you are closing those doors. (Oh Badaka)
We didn't learn very much.
But who's fault was that? That was our own.
You don’t like the human touch,
or the breath down your neck.
But you do not want any more,
you're fed up you're on your own. (Oh badaka)
You don't like the human touch
or the breath on the neck when you had sex.

(Oh badaka)
(Oh badaka)
Track Name: The Guttersnipe
Takes himself down to the oak tree, where he likes to sit and think to himself, about himself.
Where did it all go wrong?
They looked for you here, there, everywhere, through the streets you're not there. In the close nope they’re nowhere close.
You said you’ll come back when you're strong.
Where you gonna go and lay your eggs? Your friend said.
Now you’re thinking that you’re better off dead.
Your not a chicken you’re a boy, guttersnipe ain’t a toy.

Sorry sir, the lifestyle you wanted is outta stock, you get a new one from Topshop.
Your sister did and look at her now. Her fake lifestyle has turned her life around. She’s been up she’s been down, she’s not who she wants to be.
You’re not who you wanna be, that’s why you’re gonna make a change.

You spend your money on cigarettes and maps of the world, hoping that one day you will see it all.
But you’ve already seen it all.
You gonna run, you gonna jump, you gotta sing, you gotta dance you gotta do the can can, I know you can.
C’mon man.
Don’t neglect nor disrespect every single opportunity in life that you might get.
Grasp them with both hands.

Now I understand if you’re pissed off.
Don’t let behaviour get you down or make you cross.
Just don’t let the fools make a fool outta you.
Don’t let the fools make a fool outta you.
You’re gonna be who you want to be.
You’re gonna see the world in all it’s glory.
You’re gonna make that change.
Don’t let the fools make a fool outta you.
Now go and make that change.

Good news sir, the lifestyle you wanted is now in stock, you get a new one from our shop.
Just walk up to the till and purchase it, I swear to god you won’t regret it.
You’re a grown man now, stick up for yourself, don’t fuck about, scream and shout or listen to anyone else.
You're gonna make that change.
Now go and make that change.
Now go and make that change.
You’ve gone and made that change.
Track Name: It's Okay If You're A Worrier As I Am One Of Those, Too
The tattoo on your wrist.
The birds symbol this.
If this is stealing, then what is love?
And what is leaving?
Guiltiness strikes, the worry kicks in.
Hand it back over, that's one less sin.

The freckle on your eyelid.
Your cigarettes and your black lipstick.
We'll move away from this silly little town.
But we're gonna have to deal with what we have for now.
And you said "people you dislike won't matter anymore n' everything will be great."
"people you despite won't matter anymore n' everything will be great, so it's okay."

Put that knife in the utensil holder, the only problem here is that we're growing older.
But we're getting bolder,
And lasting stronger for longer.
Punk rock will never die!
You're alive, don't you know it,
But your attitude don't show it.
Please keep finding the things that make you happy,
And just keep trying to be free.

The scar on my eyelid.
My fingernails and my stubbornness.
We'll move away from this silly little town.
But we're gonna have to deal with what we have for now.
And you said "people you dislike won't matter anymore n' everything will be great."
"people you despite won't matter anymore n' everything will be great, so it's okay."

Yeah it’s okay if you’re a worrier as I am one of those, too.
Track Name: It'll Take A While To Digest
Ten minutes felt like sixteen years.
Oh how time flys when you're having fun.
This was not, there was no fun.
My cousin lost the feeling in his hands/arms and in his legs.
3 - 1
And it's gone.

Stop messing my head get out instead.
The fresh air in your lungs is so fun,
when you feel great.
But when you don't it's not your best mate.
I've lost count of the times,
situations like these came on my mind.
It did,
now it doesn't
And that's not so bad.

Everyone's laughing at you,
everyone's talkin' bout you.
What you gonna do?
Are you gonna pull through?
Pull down all these impediments that enclose you.
Follow through,
What if I stole your shoes?
Would you run through shards of glass for me?
I know I wouldn't do.

And It sadness me to think that a "hello" was a "goodbye" as well as a "thank you".

Meliorism is better for your health,
for yourself and for everyone else.
Don't forget yourself.
Meliorism is better for yourself,
For your health and everyone else.
Don't forget yourself.
