about

Reformer by V-Sor,X is alternative but not abstract. It is also synth pop but definitely not throw away. You won’t find 12 identical songs. The album has big sing-a-long tracks including Crash And Burn, Dragged, Getting Back, That’s Quite Enough and Industry. It has more thoughtful tracks like The Return, Grey And White and The Eyes Of A Friend. There are also some quirky and/or quasi-dance tracks – Elektronisch and Jumping And Jigging And Energised. All stand on their own, while managing to coalesce into one coherent body of work.

Track Name: Dragged
Dragged and torn, rolled and worn
Several years have passed me by
Spending days, in a hollow place
Hiding from the songs that built my life

I have been unsatisfied, suppressing all the art inside
Was heading to my grave without a sense of pride
Won’t imitate the way you live, this beating heart has much to give
I will never be denied

I’m alive
I’m alive
I’m alive
Once again
Track Name: We Can Do This Two Ways
No, no, no, no it’s such a shame
No, no, no, no this time I’m not to blame

You said too much, you set the blame again
It’s been coming for a long, long time but now we see the end

I’ll take this chance and I’ll go free
You cleared the fog and helped me see

No, no, no, no it’s such a shame
No, no, no, no this time I’m not to blame

We have a chance to learn, to break the status quo
And one day we will recognise we took this break to grow

Face down, deep frown, your were sure that I would drown
Your cries, saying I won’t rise, well can you see the fire in these eyes
Let’s end this fighting trend and work towards being kinder friends
Don’t demonise this compromise, you have seen the fire in my eyes
Track Name: Grey & White
Who is the man with the grey white hair? There’s a recognition as we both stare
In silence in silence

His voice it has a familiar chime and he looks like me with a few carved lines
Inquiring, inquiring

There’s disappointment written on his face, by the speed of progress by the human race
So weary so weary

With the ghosts and gods and other fiction, all used to fuel a hate addiction
So predictable. Oh so predictable

Despite this anguish he seems at ease, I sense he feels no need to please
Just moving on just moving on

How will I feel when I reach his age?
Will I still be aware, will I still be engaged?
Will I still have goals? Will I still have soul?
Track Name: Elektronisch
Pop, click, whirr and tick
Pulse, thrust, electro lust
Pumping, throbbing, avant-art
Synth line soaring, moves my heart
Resonating, stimulating
Oscillating, motivating
Soothing, moving, synthesising
Sweeping, driving, energising
Track Name: The Return
Driving through hollow town late at night, the world distorted by the dimmed street lights
Shadows throw forms from a sinister world, I’m gestured by a working girl
I’m in an area I don’t know too well, it’s locally known as just past hell
Screeches in the dark from fighting cats and a momentary glimpse of scurrying rats

There’s a smell of drains, stale and rotten, as I look for a house that’s long forgotten
The hedge overgrown and a window broken, I push the door and it slides open
This house once full of words and wishes, is stale and musty, a sink full of dishes
The TV whines from the once living room, there’s an acetate smell in the fog and gloom

You thought that you were in control but the tricks soon took a greater hold
Now they’re the meaning that drives your day and the rest of your life’s turned a pallid grey
The fear of resistance soon abates, your company oblivious in their altered state
I pull you to your feet and head for the door, you’re compliant, confused and a little unsure

Steel yourself for a punishing fight, working towards a healing light
Don’t let yourself be defined, by the damaged person you’ve left behind

I fold you into the back of the car, take a picture of this mess, the way you are
It’s still unclear how we’ll break this chain but you’ll never visit this place again
Don’t let yourself be defined, by the damaged person you’ve left behind
Track Name: Getting Back
You sold your soul for fame and fun but in the end it didn't come
To all the love that you said no, you’ll find you that you've no place to go

I cannot see a space outside. your hell is here inside your mind
Don't pile the blame on top of me. be grateful for what you’ve achieved

If you think your best years have gone by, there's not much hope for you inside
So place your hand upon your heart, being honest is the place to start

I cannot see a space outside. your hell is here inside your mind
Don't pile the blame on top of me. be grateful for what you’ve achieved
Track Name: That's Quite Enough
The hit and run has had its toll on me, I hate this person filled with jealousy
Can’t drink, can’t eat, can’t sleep, can’t even cry. The minutes creep like hours and they pass by
Washing over all these feelings, I realise what I’ve become
The man who thought he could control emotion, with this deceit, he’s come undone

The dim blue light as night surrounds my pain, while thoughts refuse to settle down
The morning breaks and shakes my weary frame. In the mirror stares this concrete frown
The anger that is coursing through me, is the weakness that I possess
It’s time to shake and break this dark self pity and end this feeble mess

The past no longer holds charm for me. The veil is torn, its stained and falling down
A compromise, a sad and lonely tale of blame and guilt, of never giving ground
But through the darkness a light is shinning, all the things I put aside
As I can feel the ties unbinding, I see the person I had to hide

The spark has taken hold and lit the fire
I thank you for the future I desired
Track Name: Feet Of Lead
Wake me up I need some rest, wake me up I’m so tired

I can wake up and I’m laughing, I can wake up in fear
Some of the time it’s cloudy and some of the time it’s clear
I try my hardest to recall, piecing bit by bit
But the story seems to drift around, the sequence doesn’t fit

The car I’m in has broken down, there’s delays on the trains
And in the airport the tannoy says they’ve cancelled all the planes
Half way through my journey, my ticket isn’t there
I’m trying to remember why I’m here, cause I know I was going somewhere

Searching around for a couple of clues, to find an explanation
Running around with feet of lead, in search of a destination
No one seems to notice and even I’m composed
But I’m in a meeting, I’m at the front, I’m not wearing any clothes
Track Name: Crash And Burn
I’m not listening to the words that took you in
You dream of a distant past, while life is happening
You pitch, the bitch, well most of us have had our fill of it
Break down, your frown, see the colours that are all around

Living in different towns but the world is just the same
Despite the words that poisoned you, you must take the blame
You stoke, we choke, all the bitterness that you spoke
This time, you’ll find, you’ve been dropped from the end of the line

I don’t believe in what you represent, with bitter words and cruel intent
You’ll crash and burn for all to see
I delight when others take the time, to understand what better minds
Have opened up for you and me
Track Name: In The Eyes Of A Friend
A colour palette filled with greys
The track that leads back with the marks of the boots that have all but worn away
And every meal it tastes the same
The door is locked inside and the song it plays again and again

A shadow falls across your face
As a thought collides to twist your mind into another darker place
I cannot see behind this gaze
The mood is snatched, the charm detached as you retreat inside your maze

Return to me

A curtain drawn, connections torn
A scene plays out in the eyes of the friend who’s heart is tired and worn
It’s hard to watch your body change
As the once bright face succumbs to the weight of the lead that drives this inner strain

Return to me
Track Name: Industry
Life in a rubber box, far from electric shocks
Head in a barrel of sand, I’m speaking to the hand
Cream for any itch, heart in a tiny fridge
So tell me, why’s this thin frame still warm

I’ve been in a bus with fame, the saddest and the lame
Head full of booze and coke but they still don’t see the joke
I’ve eaten with the richest, the nice ones and the bitches
Their style is very funny, bludgeoned to death by money

We past each other standing still, no waiting
In the push and shove, no time for love, while raging
It’s best we leave the past behind, done faking
As we’ve both seen better days since then

We cut the line from those blank ways
Lost days, goodbye
