2014 was the centenary of the “war to end all wars” and I had the idea to compose some music around the subject. Rather than just release one song or EP in 2014, I decided it would be an interesting concept to release one song a year, from 2014 to 2018 that, combined, would form one (longer) piece of music.

In 2018 Bad Elephant approached me with the idea of releasing the project as a full album and this opportunity has allowed me to re-record and reinterpret the songs I had written since 2014 and also include some additional ones, the end result being The Great War album.
Torn, broken, bleeding
Friends stuck in my hair
Can’t tell if I’m still screaming
Pieces everywhere

Crawling on my knees
On my way begging to you
Father, hear me please!
And then what did you do?
What did you do?

Why can’t you see?
I’ve got holes where eyes should be
And what did you do?
Yeah, what did you do?

If I were God
Do you think I would?
If I were God
Do you think I would?

I did not come to bring peace upon the earth
I came to bring a fucking sword
I came to put up a son against his father
But I just needed more and more and more and more

If I were God
Do you think I would?
If I were God
Do you think I would?

Create
Then take a seat again

If I were God
Do you think I would?
If I were God
Do you think I would?
