about

The 12 songs on this album all deal with various aspects of mental health. Some are from personal experiences and others are from conversations with sufferers & research. The topics covered include: depression, Anorexia, Self harming, among others but, this doesn't mean that the album is maudlin or hard to listen to.

The album title is taken from the UK statistic that, One In Four people suffer from some sort of mental health issue. Internationally, this number is one in five. Basically, if you do not suffer than you will know someone that does, even though you may not be aware of it.

It is hoped that you will really enjoy the songs and hopefully, they will enable conversations to be started or, subjects to be broached, that might otherwise be difficult to do so.

One in Four has taken over 18 months to write, record, produce, mix and master.

Track Name: I Sometimes Wish I Was Dead
Lyrics
I Sometimes Wish I Was Dead

Suicidal thoughts running through my head
I sometimes feel I'd be better off dead
No more pain, no more worrying,
No more having to play the game.

I wonder if the face in the mirror is the person you see
When you pass me by, what do you think?
On the outside, I smile and say: "Everything's fine".
But the darkness inside eats my soul
and I feel, there's no place to hide, except in my head
I sometimes wish I was dead

Pretending that I'm fine, howling on the inside
Struggling just to get through, an ordinary day
Sick of people saying: "You'll be fine, don't worry."
No control at all of emotions running high

Lock myself away, inside my head, secluded
Keep the outside world at bay
Family and friends, think that I'm not caring
but they can't see what's going on in my brain
Track Name: Dark Place
Lyrics
Dark Place

There's a dark place in here, where I hide away my fears
The sun it rarely shines, though there's a smile upon my face
And you'll never see, the me inside my head
All of the thoughts, that keep me awake at night

There are things I can't describe, torturing my mind
The dark place in here is where I like to hide
And you'll never know the me you cannot see
in a crowd alone I hide myself, my pain, away

Getting up to early, getting little sleep
my head is in a quandary and nothing sets it free
Pretending that I'm OK, just to get me through the day
Looking but not seeing, too much is in the way, too much pain

There's a dark place in here
Where I like to hide
There's a dark place in here
Where I like to hide
There's a dark place in here
Where I like to hide
Track Name: Richard
Lyrics
Richard

Richard sits in the doorway, bottle in his hand
People pass him by, they don't understand
He served his country, in a foreign land
In his head he's still there, hiding in the sand

CHORUS
Richard drinks to forget his pain
to block the memories from his brain
The things he saw, the cries he heard
wonders what he was fighting for
Dismembered babies from the bombs that fell
Richard says that he lived through hell
No-one cares, now he's back home
And Richard sits in the doorway, all alone

Richard goes unnoticed, no-one gives a damn
about the way he's feeling or the horrors in his mind
He was given a gun and bullets, told to make a stand
Richard came back from conflict a very different man


CHORUS
Richard drinks to forget his pain
to block the memories from his brain
The things he saw, the cries he heard
wonders what he was fighting for
Dismembered babies from the bombs that fell
Richard says that he lived through hell
No-one cares, now he's back home
And Richard sits in the doorway, all alone.
Track Name: Medicine Man
Lyrics
Medicine Man

I felt kind of rough and at the end of the line
I thought it was time just to call it a day
My head was somewhere, I know not where
Everything was getting too much to bear.

I told the medicine man "I quit".
"I can't go on existing like this."
He nodded his head and listened to my pain
then he said: "I've something to take it away!"

50 milligrams is all you need
let's get you started, then we'll see
If you still feel bad in 4 weeks time
I'll make it more, but I'm sure you'll be fine
Oh the medicine man
The medicine man
I love the medicine man
The medicine man

A few weeks later and I noticed a change
My hands weren't trembling and it felt kind of strange
Anxious thoughts fled from my mind
I was also leaving the stress behind

Things are better and it's plain to see
The medicine man made a better me
The darkness that was there has now faded away
And looking ahead I see better days
Track Name: OCD
Lyrics
OCD

They say, that she's a crazy girl
They don't understand
She has OCD
She can't control what's in her head
It rules her life you see
Yes she's got OCD

I understand a little how she feels
There's safety in the same routine
She needs to know that things are in their place
For her it is her saving grace

They say, that she's a crazy girl
They don't understand
She has OCD
She can't control what's in her head
It rules her life you see
Yes she's got OCD

It drives her crazy when they move her stuff
It's not important to them but to her it's a big thing
She likes everything kept in its place
Neat & tidy for her it is her saving grace

They say, that she's a crazy girl
They don't understand
She has OCD
She can't control what's in her head
It rules her life you see
Yes she's got OCD

They say, that she's a crazy girl
They don't understand
She has OCD
She can't control what's in her head
It rules her life you see
'cos she's got OCD
They say, that she's a crazy girl
They don't understand
She has OCD
She can't control what's in her head
It rules her life you see
Yes she's got OCD

Track Name: Hi-Low
Lyrics
Hi-Low

He says he's feeling fine and he's flying high
If he stretches out his arm he can touch the sky
He's gonna make his mark.
Gonna rule the world
Nothing can stop him when he feels this way
And you could only wish that you were him today

But, come next week when his dreams they fade
and he hits the ground, in that familiar way
reality bites, consequences to pay
It's the end of it all, then you'll hear him say

It's a high low world
The highs are high and the lows are low
Yes it's a high low world
A roller-coaster that never ends
It's a high low world
A high low world


In her head, she's got it all worked out
Make a million everyday, men fall at her feet
she has sex appeal
gonna take them all
Nothing's gonna stop her when she feels this way
And everyone will wish they were her today

But come next week and her dreams they fade
And she hits the ground in that familiar way
Reality bites, there's consequences to pay
It's the end of it all then you'll hear her say


It's a high low world
The highs are high and the lows are low
Yes it's a high low world
A roller-coaster that never ends
It's a high low world
A high low world

Instrumental break

It's a high low world
The highs are high and the lows are low
Yes it's a high low world
A roller-coaster that never ends
It's a high low world
The highs are high and the lows are low
Yes it's a high low world
A roller-coaster that never ends
It's a high low world
A high low world
A high low world
It's a high low world
It's a high low world
Track Name: Razor's Edge
Lyrics
Razor's Edge

Watch the blade, as it catches the light
Cuts into your arm, makes you feel so alive
A moments release feeling so empty inside
Trying to understand, your place in the world


CHORUS
The blade, makes it all seem so real
That cold razors edge, burning into your flesh
Crimson stains, the hot searing pain
You want them to understand, that you exist
On the razor's edge


The scars on your arm, you hide them away
Unlike the pain in your soul
They slowly fade
You see no escape
It's the way that it is
You stand on the edge
Of a deep, dark, abyss

CHORUS
The blade, makes it all seem so real
That cold razor's edge, burning into your flesh
Crimson stains, the hot, searing pain
You want them to understand
That you exist
On the razor's edge


CHORUS
The blade, makes it all seem so real
That cold razor's edge, burning into your flesh
Crimson stains, the hot, searing pain
You want them to understand
That you exist
On the razor's edge
Track Name: Asking You To Help Me
Lyrics
Asking You To Help Me

Open eyed see the world, through clearer skies
The weight of my smile isn't holding me down
For everyone that lives, somebody dies
And in the dark no-one hears you cry

So you think, you can unlock the child within
Release the demons from their lair and help me to sing
Rest my head on tiles from which I once bled
Dark thoughts are filling me with dread

I’m on my hands and knees asking you to help me
These tears I cry are filled with fear
Alone here in the dark I'm asking you to help me
I can’t fight this on my own I'm asking you to help me.

I need time with the words that you have said
Take me down to the place others don’t know
Erase the past and let, yes let it all go
Find space to think and help me grow

I’m on my hands and knees asking you to help me
These tears I cry are filled with fear
Alone here in the dark I'm asking you to help me
I can’t fight this on my own I'm asking you to help me.

I’m on my hands and knees asking you to help me
These tears I cry are filled with fear
Alone here in the dark I'm asking you to help me
I can’t fight this on my own I'm asking you to help me.
I'm asking you to help me.
I'm asking you to help me
Track Name: Here, There, Everywhere
Lyrics
Here, There, Everywhere

A thousand ideas are buzzing through his head
getting them started, ain't what he dreads
it's keeping them focused, through to the end
that's what he can't control

It's all hocus pocus when they give him a task
trying to focus now that what is hard
His head is buzzing and it won't slow down
Everybody figures him to be a clown

CHORUS
'cos he's here, there, everywhere
His brain is bouncing 'round and
he don't know where
And it's up, down and it's flipping around
A thousand ideas, but can't pin one of them down

He appears relaxed and calm,
while hiding his problems inside
The master of procrastination
and a million lost deadlines
His mind is moving way too fast
For his life just to keep up
The perfectionist multi-tasker
Whilst his thoughts are wildly racing around

His story could have been different,
Don't get caught in this trap
Find someone to help you
'cos you don't have to live your life like that
Others don't understand you, that ain't your fault
Life's a crazy mixed up game
And you don't have to be the same
Track Name: Anna
Lyrics
Anna

At eight years old her daddy called her fat
After that, for her, there was, there was no turning back
Meals became a battle - Didn't want to eat
Thinking every, painful, mouthful
Piled on the weight

And now she stands there, skin & bone
But in the mirror and in her mind looking fine
Wants to be like, the girls in the fashion magazines
Real life just ain't like that
In her head, she dreams, oh her dreams

Didn't like the way she looked, as her body changed
Heard the words that her mother said but
Treated them with disdain
All the other girls at school, looked so much better than she
In her head she was way too fat, heard them laughing at her
But, that wasn't the fact

And now she stands there, skin & bone
But in the mirror and in her mind looking fine
Wants to be like, the girls in the fashion magazines
Real life just ain't like that
Inside her head, she dreams, oh her dreams

Anna said that it was OK
Not to eat and for her too look this way
Anna told her what to do
Anna was her friend...... Inside her head

Mummy cried, Daddy pleaded and they begged
But there was no controlling Anna, inside her head

And now she stands there, skin & bone
But in the mirror and in her mind looking fine
Wants to be like, the girls in the fashion magazines
Real life just ain't like that
Inside her head, she dreams, oh her dreams

Anna said that it would be OK
Anna said that it would be OK
Track Name: Burst This Bubble
Lyrics
Burst This Bubble

Please don't tell me things will be alright
'cos that won't help me sleep tonight
Anxiety running in my head
Adding to the stress and bringing me down

Please don't tell me that I'll be fine
'cos that really doesn't help my state of mind
Put your arms around me and give me a cuddle
That's the perfect way to burst this bubble.

I know that you don't understand
It's in your eyes and the things you say
This bubble that surrounds me you can't see
Inside my head is a mucking fuddle
I've just got to, got to burst this bubble

Please don't tell me it'll be OK
Those platitudes don't pierce my brain
Put your arms around me and surround me with love
That's the perfect way to, burst this bubble

I know that you don't understand
It's in your eyes and the things you say
This bubble that surrounds me you can't see
Inside my head is a mucking fuddle
I've just got to, got to burst this bubble

Put your arms around me and surround me with love
That's the perfect way to, burst this bubble
Put your arms around me and give me a cuddle
That's the perfect way to burst this bubble.
Track Name: I Don't Think So
Lyrics
I Don't Think So

Go to bed - Get up for Work
It always seems to be the same routine
Weekend's come - Goes too soon
Drives me crazy does it do the same to you?

Thoughts go round and around
Some go up some go down
Is my mind really sound? I don't think so
Thoughts go round and around
Some go up some go down
Is my mind really sound?
I don't think, I don't think, I don't think,
I don't think, I don't think so

Head is wrong - It just ain't working
It always seems to be that way these days
Information, brain is melting
Drives me crazy does it do the same for you?

Go to bed - Think I'll stay here
Safely wrapped up in my warm cocoon
Going crazy - Well only maybe
Laughing faces in my nightmares I see you
