IPaintRainbows Birmingham, UK

IPaintRainbows is the musical moniker of student Thomas Yeomans for his projects.

Low-quality, amateur music written, performed, and produced by a seventeen year old in his bedroom. Not constricted to one genre, the music can span from gritty new wave-soft rock to dark ambient electropop to tongue-in-cheek cheesy pop! ... more

Track Name: Forbidden Fruit (Demo)
Read my lips, I can't resist.
For I have travelled the seas and the sky,
For somebody I can't deny.
I've been kissed and then dismissed
But how can I know that you're not the same?
My heart's waiting to call your name.

Anyone can see that you're just no good for me,
But I brush the history from my broken memory.
Knowing I'm a fool makes me turn into your tool,
But I know you'll be as cruel as the ones who've gone before you.

I can feel it bones, you'll tempt me before I shake the tree.
You're my poisoned apple fruit that's sent from the heaven's mystery.
And don't you deny it 'cause I know that it's true,
You're nothing but a snake. (Forbid, forbidden fruit.)
I'll bite the apple in Eden, I do it all for you,
Forbidden fruit.

Won't play nice in paradise,
The angels weep for me morning through night,
Because I've fallen for false delight.
Sacrifice to fill my vice,
It's you, you're sent from the skies up above,
Secretly it's the lust you love.

Everyone can tell you are sending me to Hell,
It's too late to break the spell, all now I can do is yell.
You won't feel the wrath and the envy in my path
'Cause you made it out too fast, and you've got nothing to lose.

I can feel it bones, you'll tempt me before I shake the tree.
You're my poisoned apple fruit that's sent from the heaven's mystery.
And don't you deny it 'cause I know that it's true,
You're nothing but a snake. (Forbid, forbidden fruit.)
I'll bite the apple in Eden, I do it all for you,
Forbidden fruit.

Don't you tell me that I'm better without your evil.
And don't you shoot your excuses they're all too feeble now.
And don't you tell me you're misguided; you are the devil.
But I won't stand here hating on you, 'cause in that you revel.

I can feel it bones, you'll tempt me before I shake the tree.
You're my poisoned apple fruit that's sent from the heaven's mystery.
And don't you deny it 'cause I know that it's true,
You're nothing but a snake. (Forbid, forbidden fruit.)
I'll bite the apple in Eden, I do it all for you,
Forbidden fruit.
Track Name: All It Takes (Demo)
Sleeping away the days 'til you're gone,
Never imagining what could go wrong.
Dreams never ending play on and on,
Plucking my heartstrings as I dance along.

Somebody's watching over me,
Why can't you tell, why don't you see?
Somebody out there's controlling me
I don't think I'll be released, won't be free!

If you want to carry me,
I will allow you so easily.
You must hold the key
The one that unlocks my heart frequently.

All it takes is a matter of time
And I will be yours, but you won't be mine.
All it is is a mountain to climb
So you'll let me go in a horse cart divine.

La la laa la, la la laa,
La la lalala lalala laa.
La la laa la, la la laa,
La la lalala lalala laa.

Never will I amount to the charge,
For I find it hard to not fall apart.
When will you cease to be at large?
'Cause it's taking a toll on my soul and my heart.

Moving like clockwork possessed by you.
Don't want to believe, must it be true?
Moving away from the life I knew,
Why must it happen to me, what you do?

If you want to carry me,
I will allow you so easily.
You must hold the key
The one that unlocks my heart frequently.

All it takes is a matter of time
And I will be yours, but you won't be mine.
All it is is a mountain to climb
So you'll let me go in a horse cart divine.

La la laa la, la la laa,
La la lalala lalala laa.
La la laa la, la la laa,
La la lalala lalala laa.

Please don't take me
Away from my family.
Please don't hate me,
I just to go through life living in peace!

If you want to carry me,
I will allow you so easily.
You must hold the key
The one that unlocks my heart frequently.

All it takes is a matter of time
And I will be yours, but you won't be mine.
All it is is a mountain to climb
So you'll let me go in a horse cart divine.

La la laa la, la la laa,
La la lalala lalala laa.
La la laa la, la la laa,
La la lalala lalala laa.

La la laa la, la la laa,
La la lalala lalala laa.
La la laa la, la la laa,
La la lalala lalala laa.
Track Name: Chemical Imbalance (Demo)
Act confident, feel confident later
Doesn't make my hardships any less greater
You should be my match, who will be the matchmaker?
Don't you know that my façade is growing faker?

He makes my heart beat faster,
The thumping in my head gets louder.
You could be my only master
Because it means I'd be much prouder.

Chemical imbalance
Convey your thoughts to me now.
Chemical imbalance
Before I'm sought out by a tougher crowd.
Chemical imbalance
Disturbing my peace of mind.
Chemical imbalance
Should I just leave you behind?

Act ignorant, ask questions later.
I need a body language translator.
If you didn't guess yeah, it's a deal-breaker
If it's soon revealed you're nothing but a traitor.

I'm getting ready for the rapture,
Something raining down from the sky.
Hoping that I might capture
A passing glimpse from your eye.

Chemical imbalance
Convey your thoughts to me now.
Chemical imbalance
Before I'm sought out by a tougher crowd.
Chemical imbalance
Disturbing my peace of mind.
Chemical imbalance
Should I just leave you behind?

If you haven't heard
Such a downright classic word
You will never be deterred
Cause you wouldn't ever listen.
Logically absurd,
I am spouting wisdom slurred.
When you've finally incurred it
You'll forget what you were missing!

Chemical imbalance
Convey your thoughts to me now.
Chemical imbalance
Before I'm sought out by a tougher crowd.
Chemical imbalance
Disturbing my peace of mind.
Chemical imbalance
Should I just leave it behind?
Track Name: Redemption Needed (Demo)
Win some, lose some,
Tom you've gotta move on.
Gotta prove 'em wrong
Gotta, gotta move along.
Don't let them see you cry,
Hold your head up high.
You're such a nice guy
When you never really try.
Inhale, exhale
Life is getting so stale.
My face is turning pale
'Cause I always seem to fail.
I've got to learn not to fret
But I won't forget
And I always sweat
And I'm full of regret!

You won't believe your eyes
And we'll get a big surprise, oh!

Don't underestimate me,
You'll never celebrate me.
I've got to prove my worth
I've got to fulfil my birth.
It's late communicating
I'm now hallucinating
Because my heart is hurting
And you're always averting!

I'm in suspension
Without your attention.
I need redemption
And there's no exemption!

Such a fool is the man who acts like a star
When he's going to be brought back down to Earth.
And don't think that I'm a comet flying so far
'Cause I'm actually blood and dearth!

I don't believe your lies
'Cause it'll lead to demise, yeah!

Don't underestimate me,
You'll never celebrate me.
I've got to prove my worth
I've got to fulfil my birth.
It's late communicating
I'm now hallucinating
Because my heart is hurting
And you're always averting!

I'm in suspension
Without your attention.
I need redemption
And there's no exemption!

High, low! Where ya gonna go?
How are you gonna get to know
If you've failed again?
If you've failed again?
Left, right, always outta sight,
Not ready, ready for the fight.
You've derailed again!
You've derailed again!

Don't underestimate me,
You'll never celebrate me.
I've got to prove my worth
I've got to fulfil my birth.
It's late communicating
I'm now hallucinating
Because my heart is hurting
And you're always averting!

I'm in suspension
Without your attention.
I need redemption
And there's no exemption!
I'm in suspension
Without your attention.
I need redemption
And there's no exemption!
