about

Out of the Ashes, the debut album from Hellcat Molly, is therapy for anyone who's had a hard time. Writing began when a 5 year relationship came to an end which meant leaving my home, leaving my pets, having to move country and set up a new life. I went through the death of a close family member and moved from London to Glasgow.

We'll all experience hard times in life, but it's what we do with them that defines us. This is my story of my rise Out of the Ashes, it's an honest expression of everything I've been feeling and I hope some of you can relate.

Track Name: Whisky & Heresy
You're my friend, but can't you see,
The hurt they've spread throughout history?
There's nothing wrong with asking why,
though you deny what's in front of your eyes.
Marble towers, all lined with gold?
Sat on a throne with a political hold?
They change the story so you can't be free.
Blind faith pushing me, from "a" to "anti".

They should be long gone,
but their war rages on.

I'll bring the bottle, so pull up a chair,
belief on the rocks but tonight we don't care.
Whisky & heresy
burn all the books, let the people go free.

I know we're all afraid to die,
but from the cradle they fed you lies.
defined by my actions and nothing more,
but they say you're born broken, and they're the cure?
Living in chains, in hopes of the next.
Open your eyes and help us progress.
You don't have the answers and neither do I,
but at least I'm looking, but you "know" so won't try.

They should be long gone,
but their war rages on.

I'll bring the bottle, so pull up a chair,
belief on the rocks but tonight we don't care.
Whisky & heresy
burn all the books, let the people go free.
Thrown down like water, cigars in your hand,
you know that it's wrong, they lay the laws of the land.
Whisky & heresy
telling the world, you'll never get me.
Track Name: Break
I never thought I'd see the day,
that the smile was wiped off your face.
I never knew I'd be ok,
after my fall from grace.
You shook me to the roots,
the shook the darkest of my bones.
You thought you'd put me down,
but I'll beat your sticks with my stones.

Now I see what I've become.
Nothing left to do but run.

Break
Break away from you
Break
and you leave me too.
Break away
Do what you gotta do.

Now I'm back on my feet,
you'#re the one who's gonna hurt.
You tried to put it all on me,
but I'll leave you down in the dirt.
You took me to the edge
you took your chance you lost it all.
You never thought I'd catch you out,
but I set you up for a fall.
Track Name: Leaving London
I walk these empty streets alone,
but somehow this is home,
caught in the lie of being here
and living on the phone.
I feel the city calls my name,
she says I'm not to blame,
the memories of growing here,
but nothing feels the same

I've got to get away
running from my pride
hidden deep inside
I've got to leave you now
I've got to get away
running from her lies
and I can't disguise
I'm leaving London.

I'll miss the bars, I'll miss the fights,
the parties and bright lights,
I'll miss the life that she gave me
I've got to get away.
She takes so much she never gives,
you're working just to live,
she loves you but she'll hold you down
and never let you go.

I've got to get away
running from my pride
hidden deep inside
I've got to leave you now
I've got to get away
running from her lies
and I can't disguise
I'm leaving London.

You've got away, but you're not free,
I don't care what you believe,
you left a part of you,
but you'll be back... just wait and see
You think your castle makes you strong,
but you couldn't be more wrong
Track Name: Good Time Girl
I've traveled so far,
but now I'm under your spell,
first the drink and then the drugs,
and now we're in this hotel.
I'm tied to the bed post,
you're down on your knees,
there's that look in your eyes
you're just waiting to please.

singing woah-oh-oh
just make it though,
and you will see,
you're much more than this to me.

All night,
I shake the walls,
I gotta stop as my girlfriend calls.
Giving you the best,
'coz you know you're my world.
You're my good time girl.

It's nearer the dawn,
and we've done the deed,
but who am I kidding
there's more, that I need.
It's time to get over,
but lets get it on,
you know it feels good,
but it still feels so wrong

singing woah-oh-oh
just make it though,
and you will see,
you're much more than this to me.

All night,
I shake the walls,
I gotta stop as my girlfriend calls.
Giving you the best,
'coz you know you're my world.
You're my good time girl.

You say "it's the last time",
I'll see you again,
not a matter of "if",
just a matter on "when".
Track Name: Snake
Woahhh ohhh
ohhhh ohhhh

Shut your mouth,
hold your tongue,
your eyes tell the story,
so old and yet so young.
You burned that bridge,
you let me down.
Lost sleep and now I'm too damn low,
to pick you up of the ground.

Can't you see you've been
taken for a fool
Snake
Can't you see she's got
eyes for him not you.

Slipping out,
late at night.
Slithers like a viper,
just about to strike.
Just one bite,
venom's in.
Coursing through your veins and now,
she's moving in on him.

Can't you see you've been
taken for a fool
Snake
Can't you see she's got
nothing left to lose.
Track Name: Dark Times
Make a wish, Say a prayer,
From the gutter
I ain't gonna settle for another
You’re the only one I want
You’re the only one

Pick me up, do a line,
feel the shudder
You shouldn’t settle for another
Am I the only one you want?
Am I the only one

These are dark times
These are dark times....

Take the pill, feel the burn
Drink the water
Trade the feeling of guilt for another
Is this the only way you want?
Is this the only way?

Shoot the shit, handle it
score another
golden brown, it ain't like no other
I'm the only one you want
I'm the only one

These are dark times
These are dark times

Dark Times
running from the light
Dark Times
so afraid to fight
Dark Times
stealing for the night
Dark Times
Living out of sight

Rush is through, so are you
Do you love her?
So alone and running for cover
still the only one you want
still the only one

Mary Jane hides the pain
but you're a sucker
feel alive and seeing in colour
still the only one you want
still the only one
Track Name: Fly Away
I'm saying goodbye
put the words on the page
the only way to let all out
you were my safe place
all the lessons I learned
the life the love the memories

I'm not gonna say
that I'll see you again
the world keeps on turning around
I miss you most days
but you're memory
your memory
lives in our hearts

fly away
like a bird of prey
too beautiful to live in a cage
fly away
yeah the time has come
I'll never forget what you've done

I'm living each day
do the best that I can
to build a life, a family
be the best we can be
'cause your memory
your memory
lives in our hearts

I'm standing in the rain now
soaked right to the bone
I still see you face
whenever I'm alone
Although I still need you
as I look up to the sky
wash over me
and help me say goodbye
Track Name: Too Little Too Late
We started out as players
we both thought we ruled the world
but disregarding others
you seemed to find joy in another's words.
I know it's still a mystery
turning your back as you went along
shattered feelings, self believing
threatened by many but scared by none.

Time for this but I can't wait,
Far too little far too late

How, How do you treat me now
That we can't be together
not then not now get out!
How, How do you treat me now
I said I'd wait forever
Not then not now we're through
I'm not for you

You know that there's another
we both know that this can't work
I've found another lover
gotta go where this won't hurt
I know it's still in infancy,
drawing out the map as we go along.
shattered feelings, time for healing
admired by many but missed by none.
Track Name: Hunter
We all fell in to it in London
Took no time to find our feet
We spent our time chasing our nightmares
But by chance achieved our dreams

We stay with it, and stick with it
we stay with it, why? Because they need it
we stay with it, stick with it
stay with it, why? Because we live it.

Time has passed we feel no different
Much more than miles stand in our way

We stay with it, and stick with it
we stay with it, why? Because they need it
we stay with it, stick with it
stay with it, why? Because we live it.

Through the dark we burn together
Through the dark we’re strong and free
Track Name: Eulogy
I've walked for miles with this empty smile
sing an early eulogy
I wash my hands of all I am
and all that I'll ever be

“hold on tight, walk into the light,”
she sings to me quietly
just born and raised, to never say
that things have got the best of me

I feel that it's all coming down
I feel like my face is kicked to the ground
I need to stand up, I need to fight
I need feel like this is a life,
that's worth living, that's worth living for me

Hold on, drag me up
Hold on before it get too tough
pull me back, lift me up
fight my fears, make me feel enough

I drag my heels as it takes its toll
Got lost on this journey
I’ve faced my fears, Lost all I have
Struggled with it privately

Hold on tight, you've got to fight,”
She pleads with me violently
“You’re born too strong, to ever say,
That you were far too good for me”
