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.

Break 04:16
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.

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

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".

Snake 03:47
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.

Dark Times 05:02
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

Fly Away 04:32
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

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.

Hunter 04:10
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

Eulogy 05:20
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”

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.
