about

An apologist ponders on the guilt that comes with the wealth and ease of material abundance.

lyrics

I have trained myself with the best of excuses
To explain away the shit I have to take.
No there’s nothing as convenient as indifference
To help me justify the ways that I connive with denial.

It’s hard to sometimes justify
The cards I choose to play in life.
And I forget it’s the greatest disrespect of all
To be ungrateful for what I’ve got.

I tend to depend on all the things I find easy
To defend and I send the hard choices away.
I tell myself if I take them on it will bring only pain.
I convince myself the only way is for things to stay the same.

I can’t explain is it just a first world kind of complaint
To feel ungrateful for what I’ve got.

Can you blame me there are so many battles to choose from.
We must draw the blinds on other’s pain sometimes.
But there’s nothing as convenient as indifference
To help me justify the ways that I connive with denial.

about

t.k. bollinger Melbourne, Australia

A connoisseur of dark moods and plaintive melodies, t.k. bollinger is an explorer on the road less travelled. His musical children are songs of contrite and emotionally challenged characters confessing their darkest fears and tortured realisations.
They speak of the usual things – love, abuse, neglect and the small triumphs and tiny truths that gleen in our day to day growth and survival.
