BIO:

After the typical post-high school band breakup and a quick stint at an audio engineering school, Amnesia Jones quit his retail gig selling guitars in Auckland, New Zealand. Ditching the rat race to move even further from civilization, settling to record his first album & release in Waihi Beach.

Building a life on wheels, including a shoebox-sized home studio, he went to work creating a self-sufficient, self-sustaining sound. Keeping everything “in-house,” contrary to the twenty man songwriter teams prevalent in these last twenty years. In typical Kiwi DIY fashion; “If you want something done right, do it yourself.”

Also contrarian, dropping an entirely independent debut album in February 2019, unknown and unannounced. Amnesia Jones hopes to break through the “haystack” of Instagram backing track artists in this digital streaming age.

Letting the music speak for itself.

A fusion of new-school meets old-school, singer-songwriter meets pseudo jam band. Bluesy, funky, jazzy, electronic, hopefully soulful, rockish music.

Track Name: What Escaped Me When
LYRICS

This song won't change your life
It won't answer all your questions
Watch these words go by
Leave them here tonight
Oh

Take your own advice
Leave at your discretion
Be prepared to fight
For what is real and right
Watch me as I write
Watch me as I write
Yeah

No...

Honestly I don’t
Don’t even recall
What escaped me when
When I tried to fall
Honestly I don’t
Don’t even recall
What escaped me when
No!

Ooh
What escaped me when
Oh no...
What escaped me
What escaped me when

Set it on a vice
Break it down
Crush it down and feel it through your fingers
Feel it through your fingers

Reap the benefits
Break them down
Crush them down and feel them through your fingers
Oh no
Oh no
Feel them through your fingers
Woohoo...

Honestly I don’t
Don’t even recall
What escaped me when
When I tried to fall
Honestly I don’t
Don’t even recall
What escaped me when
What escaped me when

Honestly I don’t
Don’t even recall
What escaped me when
When I tried to fall
Honestly I don’t
Don’t even recall
What escaped me when
No?
Yeah?

Honestly I don’t know
What escaped me when
Honestly I don’t know
What escaped me when
Honestly I don’t know
What escaped me when
Honestly I don’t know
What escaped me when

Track Name: Hate Machine
LYRICS

It’s a hate machine
Deliberating everything
Another shady scene
Changing laws behind the dream
It’s a mind disease
Holding you from feeling
Another ruse it seems
Making fake enemies

It’s time to take out
Your right to break out
It’s time to let us shout
Aaahh...

Maybe it’s time you see our lives from our end
Maybe it’s time you show your clouded stare
Maybe it’s time you see our lives from our end
Maybe it’s time you show your clouded stare

It’s a conspiracy
Living in their fantasy
Another “Watergate”
Coming to debilitate
It’s revolt they want
Reason to destroy the peace
Another shameless force
Governed by the elite

It’s time to take out
Your right to break out
It’s time to let us shout
Aaahh...

Maybe it’s time you see our lives from our end
Maybe it’s time you show your clouded stare
Maybe it’s time you see our lives from our end
Maybe it’s time you show your clouded stare

Maybe it’s time
Maybe it’s time
Maybe it’s time
Maybe it’s time
Maybe it’s time…
Track Name: Change
LYRICS

Why don’t I help you to give in
Like a dreamer baby
Drop that stealth prove my grin
Isn’t what you gave me
Don’t think you’re well to begin
As I start to get hazy
Shouldn’t you want to stop and grab my arm?

Time isn’t over till you begin
Stop overthinking your life
Change is effortless give in
You’ll feel much more alive
You’re doing well in your head
Thinking all is a lie
Your shit must be hell if you’re thinking
That is where you’ll lie

Where you’ll lie
Oh…

Save it for someone who will hear
What you’re wanting maybe
Saying it’s swell if you’re sick
Of your problems lately
It won’t help if you’re in
This trance you call a fun game
Wouldn’t you like to stop and grab my arm?

Time isn’t over till you begin
Stop overthinking your life
Change is effortless give in
You’ll feel much more alive
You’re doing well in your head
Thinking all is a lie
Your shit must be hell if you’re thinking
That is where you’ll lie
Yeah…

Change is effortless
Change is effortless
Give in
Change is effortless
Change is effortless…

Change is effortless
Oh…
Change is effortless
Change is effortless
Change is effortless
Track Name: Feels So Good
LYRICS

He tried to say it’s best to shake this boredom with the bottle
He tried to say it best while we all went sleuthing around
Same old stories to be told
Around the table
The brave wait and get while we are unable

But it feels so good to waste, to waste away
‘Cause in life it turns your hate, your pain and shame away

She put him to the test as he got flustered into battle
She put him through the rest while we all went tumblin’ down
Place your bets watch it unfold!
Deep in bravado
The players roll while we hate the game

But it feels so good to waste, to waste away
‘Cause in life it turns your hate, your pain and shame away

But it feels so good here
But it feels so good here
But it feels so good here
But it feels so good here

Ooh
Ooh yeah!
Yeah!
Yeah!
Yeah!

Ooh
Ooh
But it feels so good
But it feels so good
Ooh
But it feels so good
Track Name: Fallout
LYRICS

So do you know what is real yet?
Can you feel yet?
Or are you waiting?
Here?

Sittin’ back so separated there
Since you’re stayin’ where
Where you’re saying
Hey?!

Say goodbye to your own selfless eyes
You’ve compromised and I’m fading…

And time will tell
Will tell us all
It’s feeble sting
Will strain us all
In time we’ll see
What seed you sow
So tell me now
Before the fallout

Wooh…

Chase what you know and you’ll see it bare
Just don’t stop and glare unless you mean it
Oh…
Faceless crimes call for faithless times
Can you read the signs of reason?
Reason!

Ooh…

And time will tell
Will tell us all
It’s feeble sting
Will strain us all
In time we’ll see
What seed you sow
So tell me now!
Track Name: Creature Calling
LYRICS

I’ll shine a little light on your thought to whom maybe?
Creepin’ through their window onto your wall
Your still shots in their pixel dots
Still in space for the human race
They’d better not waste it and taste it all
Yeah…

Your heavy metal face displaced to whom maybe?
Their creature calling hands against the wall
You’d better not groove have the sense to move baby
They’d better not waste it and taste it all
Yeah…

Ooh…

Your creature calling yeah
Your creature calling yeah
Your creature calling yeah
Your creature calling yeah

Ooh…

Your creature calling yeah
Your creature calling yeah
Track Name: Be Like Water, Pt. 1
LYRICS

Be like water
Flow into transpire
Feel connected
Become oneself
Bloom wider

Bloom wider…

Be like water
Flow into transpire
Feel connected
Become oneself
Bloom wider!

Be like water
Flow into transpire
Feel connected
Become oneself
Bloom wider!…
Track Name: Vitality
LYRICS

Would you realise?
Covering my hands with your own shifty eyes
A space in your blocked mind
A spot to breathe and feel your body hold that air in tight

Just wait and you’ll be fine
The crazy rush into the unknown fluttering inside
Just hold onto your mind
Or feel it rip you to the core and wash your being dry

Finally
My minds to be
Cleansed you see from my identity
Finally
My minds to be
Cleansed you see
Vitality

Vitality
Vitality

Time to lose your ways
Spending life lost in your room locked in a maze
It feels like a cage
A warp hole suckin’ you inside a mammoth ride

If you could see my face
The fear in my eyes holdin’ me back into the black
Just bring me in through this haze
We’re gonna fall like autumn for days

Ooh…

Finally
My minds to be
Cleansed you see from my identity
Finally
My minds to be
Cleansed you see
Vitality

Vitality
Vitality
Vitality

Vitality
Vitality

All through my system
As I barely listen
To me
Some false inertia
Slowly burns out
Slowly breathes light
Breathes light
On me

On me…
On me…
On me…
Aaah!…
Track Name: Shimmer
LYRICS

Countin’ fingers
Watch you lay a smile
Rest your spinnin’ head
Whilst you stay awhile
Eyes are still awake
Whisper in your ear
Waste away with me girl
Stay with me here

Barely pounding
Taking it’s toll
Waves wash through me
Aching for more
Torrents drifting
Clouds are drawing near
Wake and wander with me
Dream with me here

Watch the waves break through the suns glare
Glazed eyes shimmer
Breathing your air

Watch the waves break through the suns glare
Glazed eyes shimmer
Breathing your air

Watch the shiver
Feel it unfold
Face the feeling
Break the mould

Tired of wandering
Change the pace and hold
Sleep in silence
Lucid in control

And shimmer
And shimmer…
And shimmer…
Yeah!

Stay lost through me
Waitin’ for the storm
Grasp on tightly
Into the unknown

Break lights flicker
Hands run through the seams
Gaze on your fingers
Push through the dream

Watch the waves break through the suns glare
Glazed eyes shimmer
Breathing your air

Watch the waves break through the suns glare
Glazed eyes shimmer
Breathing your air…

And shimmer
And shimmer…
And shimmer…
Yeah!
