about

Written & recorded during my time at BOP polytech, produced at home.
This was recorded "live in studio" in one take.

Unfair Demotion was written as a somewhat emotional response to finding out my Grandad had suffered a severe brain-stem stroke.

A very active, practical, caring & fun-loving man whom I have always held in very high esteem was cut down on the verge of fresh new beginnings (was due to finally make the move from the U.K. to NZ).
He became "locked in" with a fully functioning brain/mind but absolutely no motor skills.
He remains in an incapacitated state in his home in England but with high spirits with the same positive disposition he always had.
He is consistently improving, slowly getting back the use of more & more motor skills with rigorous determination.

lyrics

A brow contorted to an extent I have not seen.
The reason pleasantly haunts me in my dreams.

Buried emotions, I'm hiding to well.
I miss you so much, not ready to let you go.

Unfair demotion that we're all hurting from as well.
Stuck inside a nightmare & you're struggling to rebel.
Unfair demotion you so deserve your goals!

You've always been one step ahead.
Life's about the journey not the destination at the end.

You're an inspiration & often a mentor as well.
You've so much to give, don't you dare let go.

Unfair demotion that we're all hurting from as well.
Stuck inside a nightmare & you're struggling to rebel.
Unfair demotion you so deserve your goals!
