about

“Up she got upon a wall,
tempting down to slide withal
But the silken twist untied,
so she fell, and, bruis’d, she died.
love, in pity of the deed,
and her loving-luckless speed,
turn’d her to this plant we call 
now the flower of the wall.”

- Robert Herrick

iNCH Singapore

Pigeon holes aren’t really iNCH’s thing. Constantly pushing the definitions of artistry to new levels of discomfort, iNCH is never one to shy from opening up the doors of creation to vulnerability.

Track Name: Mt. Epiphany
I can see between the middle of the lines
And read the riddles of the hearts that beats beneath
The bodies of the sentimental
But it vexes me, cos I can’t see You

I’ve traveled to Epiphany, I’ve seen the sights I wanna see
Scaled the mountain top to bottom, hit the road
Went back to boredom
And no surprise, I’m back at the start

But You’re always…. You’re always
You’re always
Out of reach

What the hell, I’m losing my marbles over
Something I can’t see
I’d build a bridge, but I doubt I’d be any closer
To where You’d be.

I’ve played the pawn, the knight and bishop
Rolled the dice and moved my pieces
Spent more time down on my knees
Waiting for a sign or a signal
But it vexes me, cos I can’t read You

I’ve traveled to Reverie, I’ve seen the hope that’s left for me
Sailed the clouds just for while, came back down
Reviewed the options
And once again, I’m back at the start
Track Name: Rule The World
Hey babe,
someday you and i will rule the world
and it'd be just you and me and no more
animosity to bare;
riches of the world we will share.

Hey babe,
someday you and i will save the world
and it'd be just you and me
the super tag-team
knocking out bad guys keeping our eye on the prize.

But i know these things never last
But i hope, this will last till we're "pruningly" old.

Hey babe,
someday you and i will rule the world
and it'd be just you and me and the
higher being;
loving thy neighbour, keeping things just and right

But i know these things never last
But i hope, this will last till we're "pruningly" old.

One by one, the numbers don't matter
cause nothing's ever really gonna last forever.
The trigger we'll pull and its time for us to rule.

But i know these things never last
But i hope, this will last till we're "pruningly" old.
Track Name: Hurt
Cold, Cold is the sheep with no wool.
Back, Black is the shade of my skin.
I could stay on the third degree, but my heart's on wholesale.
Yes, my hearts on wholesale.

Someday, we'd be having laughs and talk over some cakes and tea.
You'd ask, how has love been for me and i'd reply cordially.
Then you'll, notice the blush on my face.
We'd smile, soaking it all until the bubble burst.

Dark, dark is the lane off the road.
Back, Black is the shade of my skin.
I could stay on the third degree, but my heart's on wholesale.
Yes, my hearts on wholesale.

Someday, we'd be having laughs and talk over some cakes and tea.
You'd ask, how has love been for me and i'd reply cordially.
Then you'll, notice the blush on my face.
We'd smile, soaking it all until the bubble burst.

Cold, cold is the sheep with no wool.
Black, black is the shade of my skin.
Plain, plain is the simple we seek.
Fake, fake is the lie we all use.

Cold, cold is the sheep with no wool.
Black, black is the shade of my skin.
Plain, plain is the simple we use.
Fake, fake is the lie we all seek.
Track Name: Discern
Too many times,
I fell in love.
Too many times,
The lesson’s never learnt.
Too many times,
I’ve given it away
But I wouldn’t have it any other way
I guess my heart’s just feels this way.

Too many times,
I’ve got my fingers burnt.
Too many times,
Yet it’s so hard to discern.
Too many times,
I’ve given it away.
But I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I guess my heart’s just built this way.

And I,
Will forever find myself climbing out of a rut
Hearing nothing but the high frequencies
And the sound of my… heartbeat.

Too many times
Oh too many times
I couldn’t even see signs when I cross the line
Wouldn’t eat, wouldn’t sleep, wouldn’t even give a damn
But I wouldn’t have it any other way
I guess my heart’s just meant to break.

And I,
Will forever find myself climbing out of a rut
Hearing nothing but the high frequencies
And the sound of my… heartbeat.
Track Name: Return Of The Fat Cat
Destiny calls,
Do you feel the fire burning like it was
It’s the weight of the world hidden behind the cause
It’s the weight of the world,
Is your heart heavy ready to bawl?

Cold as ice, you face the early parade;
does the purple light even know your name?
I know the feeling seems hard to change,
but in two years time you’ll break away

Destiny calls,
It’s the wait that won’t wait for the overhaul
It’s the weight of the world egging you to move along.
It’s the weight of the world,
Is your heart heavy ready to bawl?

Cold as ice, you face the early parade;
does the purple light even know your name?
I know the feeling seems hard to change,
but in two years time you’ll break away

But your shoulders will crack, they will burn under the sun
But I won’t ever let it get it to your head.

Destiny calls,
it’s the weight of the world, are you ready to give it your all?

Cold as ice, you face the early parade;
does the purple light even know your name?
I know the feeling seems hard to change,
but in two years time you’ll break away
Track Name: Red Dot
I couldn't settle down somehow
And find myself a tree to hide.
Its not like its easy but i'll find my way to park my pride.

Could it be the nature of the city?
the foreign inferiority
the dying urge to be accepted as a somebody?
Disconnected to the nation
Four million population
I wouldn’t even know where to start

Whoa oh oh
Whoa oh oh
I wouldn't trade my stay
Whoa oh oh
Whoa oh oh
But it would be nice to see some change

This little red dot of mine
Maybe small to many eyes but i really don't mind

Could it be the nature of the city?
The people all around me?
Superficial things 3 we all place in priority?
Disconnected to the nation
Four million population
I wouldn’t even know where to start

Whoa oh oh
Whoa oh oh
I wouldn't trade my stay
Whoa oh oh
Whoa oh oh
This home is where i lay
Track Name: Wallflower
Hello world,
I’m a mismatched glove on the shelf of a hardware store.
Its not like I know how I got here from before,
time just took me on the tide.

Hello world,
I’m part of the world but I don’t qualify to be
part of societies social hierarchy.
Cause I was always cruising on my own.

I wish that someone would notice me,
its not like I’m so hard to see.

Hello world,
do I really have to look like the girls in the magazines,
picture perfect framed and photoshop-ed to the last degree.
Oh spare me would you please.

I wish that someone would wanna know me,
Its not like I’m so hard to see.

But I’ll just hide in my garden,
plant my own trees and watch me grow.
But no no no, they won’t let me be.
As they, stand still and tease.

Hello world,
is weird that I fit in your colony?
I was always just known as the black sheep of the family
Cause I was never walking on the dotted line line line line line.

I wish that someone would wanna know me,
Its not like I’m contagiously diseased.

But I’ll just hide in my garden,
plant my own trees and watch me grow.
But no no no, they won’t let me be.
As they, stand still and tease.

But I’ll just hide in my garden,
plant my own trees and watch me grow.
Then it won’t be much longer.
till I become a pretty wallflower.
Track Name: Pins & Needles
It seems that simple things don’t make out to be simple at all
its stupid why I’d always find myself like a fly on the wall
pins & needles, ah ah ah ow.

ah ah ah ow.

And now, I’m drowning by the dryness of my patience
and I, decay like rusted thoughts you breath away.

And I trusted in the moment
you’ll take and you’ll choose.
Yet you chose another somehow you choose,
a different way and now I’m left,
jaded by the things that you do.
Hey you are, the way you said you would be.

It seems that stupid things will always be stupid after all
its funny how I’d find myself facing the wall
pins & needles, ah ah ah ow.

ah ah ah ow.

And now, I’m drowning by the dryness of my patience
and I, decay like rusted thoughts you breath away.

And I trusted in the moment
you’ll take and you’ll choose.
Yet you chose another somehow you choose,
a different way and now I’m left,
jaded by the things that you do.
Hey you are, the way you said you would be.
Track Name: Cold, Conned & Conquered
Pieces of you,
Ourselves we lose,
we're falling.

People we knew,
finding excuses to be amused.

Breathe in slowly,
take a step outside.

(breathe)

Laid out like an open book,
you're broken broken.
Wasted is the good on you.
You're cold, conned, conquered.

(fame is vapour and only earthy certainty is oblivion)

Blame the accuse,
Ourselves we choose.
we're falling

Fame we pursue,
Finding excuses to be amused.

Breathe in slowly,
take a step outside.

(breathe)

Laid out like an open book,
you're broken broken.
Wasted is the good on you.
You're cold, conned, conquered.
Track Name: Have It Your Way
Have it your way,
its your will over mine.
Have it your way,
its your will over mine.

So just take it all,
and turn me inside out.
Just don't leave me in the dark.

Have it your way,
its your will over mine.
Have it your way,
its your will over mine.
Its not like it could mean a thing against you and the grand scheme of things.
So i'll wait for the next pending option.
You could say i've fallen from grace,
but was i even there in the first place.

So you could just take it, take it all
and turn me inside out.
Just don't leave me in the dark.
Track Name: Goodnight
Proudly boldy hold my hand,
embrace me like you mean it then.
Like skin & bones with open hearts,
don't ever let me go, till the night.
where the lights start fading out,
till we run out of sheep to count.
