about

The first single off the upcoming debut LP "This Machine Kills Scenes", "Short-Term Memories" was written in the late winter of 2018 and was one of the first songs to be performed by Martin back when LTE was a solo/acoustic project.

The song was inspired by Martin's battle with insomnia and depression while being away from his family while traveling. The song's original title was "Short-Term Memory Lost".

lyrics

I Look into the mirror, I can't see the sin
Where do my compromises end when they begin
Who am I to apologize for what I feel within
I just can't face the lies I tell myself again

The phone hangs up and the thoughts go dark
And I can feel my head spin
Who the hell writes this shit?
Can they answer a few questions?
Time is wasted that’s my curse,
I need an alarm clock
One more thing before I stop...

I forgot my thought …
I forgot my thought …
I forgot my thought …
I forgot my thought …

I close my eyes, can’t fall asleep,
What happens when this ends,
Will we all float away into the nothing,
Panic grips my every thought,
The cycle Spins and spins
I wanna fall asleep,
but I’m thinking of you again

The phone hangs up and the thoughts go dark
And I can feel my head spin
Who the hell writes this shit?
Can they answer a few questions?
Time is wasted that’s my curse,
I need an alarm clock
One more thing before I stop...

I forgot my thought …
I forgot my thought …
I forgot my thought …
I forgot my thought …

One last time I’m thinking will I ever sleep again?
When did my reality become a figment I am in?
Insomnia and bad thoughts, cancer from within
I’m not lost but I have no clue Where have I been?

The phone hangs up and the thoughts go dark
And I can feel my head spin
Who the hell writes this shit?
Can they answer a few questions?
Time is wasted that’s my curse,
I need an alarm clock
One more thing before I stop...

I forgot my thought …
I forgot my thought …
I forgot my thought …
I forgot my thought …
I forgot my thought …
I forgot my thought …
I forgot my thought …
I forgot my thought …
I forgot my thought …
I forgot my thought …
I forgot my thought …
I forgot my thought, Yeah?
