Giles Guest This album is just so powerful the singing and screaming/growling is very well controlled and executed. The Instruments are also a great addition to the vocals which the keyboards I believe are played by Charlotte herself and the guitar and drums played by Dilian Manihera. My favourite stand out tracks has to be the title track Defiled and Dead To Me but an amazing EP in it's entirety. Great work Charlotte keep it up. Favorite track: Defiled.

Caldara13 There is so much power in this album. Charlotte. Your first solo album to me is an amazing beginning into what to me feels like has been around for years. You are amazing Charlotte Newell, so talented and skilled. I will follow you and your music from here and in your future. I love every track but the two that I would say are my favorites are Dead to Me and Endure. Favorite track: Dead To Me.

about

Defiled is my first EP created in collaboration with Dillan Manihera. Lyrically, it is intended to take the listener through stories of my own personal battles with mental illness and trauma, delivered through a range of both clean and harsh female vocals to a beautiful backing track of sound.

Track Name: Defiled
Darkness calls
From these four walls
Breathing as I
Crumble inside
Their eyes
Extinguish my fight
Their eyes
Extinguish the light

Defiled me
Defiled dreams
Defiled means
Defiled screams
Calling me
Drowning me
Breaking me

Their minds extinguish my fight
And never tell me why

In the end they lie
In the end I'll die
But before the chapter ends
Will I have friends
Will I find the way
Will I be okay
Will it take me from this place

Defiled me
Defiled dreams
Defiled means
Defiled screams
Calling me
Drowning me
Breaking me

Their minds extinguish my fight
And never tell me why
Track Name: Dead To Me
You lost yourself today, falling to pieces (falling to pieces)
Fading so far away, endless spaces (endless spaces)

You're dead to me, you're dead
You're dead to me, you're dead
You're dead to me, you're dead
You're dead to me

You lost yourself today, falling to pieces
Fading so far away, endless spaces
Filled with things that you can't ever say
Cause you have lost your way
Chasing pieces of your broken soul
Couldn't stop yourself from needing more

You're dead to me, you're dead
You're dead to me, you're dead
You're dead to me, you're dead
You're dead to me

Blinded by compulsive lies, a broken mind
Simply stumble, grasping at nothing
You can't begin, to escape your sins
And in remiss, it is what it is

All that this lost (all it never was)
All it never was was (lost all of us)
Slave to sufferance
Slave to substance
Slave to indifference
Track Name: Undefined
No
I can live
I can breathe
Without you
Without you

So cold inside
A wasted life

No
I can live
I can breathe
Without you
Without you

So cold inside
A wasted life

Just let it happen
Just let it sink in
Fade away now
Into the silence
I'd rather die
Than listen to your lies
Cold inside
Undefined

No
I can live
I can breathe
Without you
Track Name: Endure
Endure

Every light can disappear
Find yourself
In quiet tears
Falling into darkness
Again

Don't let yourself down
Don't let yourself drown
Go on because you want believe
To dream, be all you want to be
And prove them all wrong
To prove yourself wrong
Stay the course
And endure

If you can't even cast a shadow
From your heart becoming hollow
Did the tears fall at all
Does the pain matter at all
If your soul is so far gone
That bleeding feels like home

Everything fading
Into self hatred
Keeping out the light (again)
To keep itself alive (again)
You lie to yourself just to get by
Never knowing why
It hurts to look inside
For what you're trying to find

Don't let yourself down
Don't let yourself drown
Go on because you want believe
To dream, be all you want to be
And prove them all wrong
To prove yourself wrong
Stay the course
And endure

Inside we all drown
And do nothing but look on
With apathy and shame
And search for someone else to blame
While we drag ourselves down
Until we're hollow
And never think to change
Til we've become a slave

Deep down
Inside we all drown
Deep down
Inside we all drown

Don't let yourself down
Don't let yourself drown
Go on because you want believe
To dream, be all you want to be
And prove them all wrong
To prove yourself wrong
Stay the course
And endure
