Above my head I see a starry constellation And when I dream Another galaxy's creation A distant realm My mind is found and it is taken. I wander free, in reverie In a world that's mine, lost in time, eternity. Floating amongst the stars Wondering who we are I'm learning how to fly Floating amongst the stars Wondering who we are I've travelled across the sky While I drift from afar I am holding a star And wherever you are I'll guide you home But before you know I'm gone. Was it all just a dream? Fell apart at the seams? Can you tell if this is reality? Well, not for me, and now... In the velvet sea of night There are cosmic trails of starlight That light up your face With a warm embrace It's a wonderful sight Floating amongst the stars Wondering who we are I'm learning how to fly Floating amongst the stars Wondering who we are I've travelled across the sky And we all live together It's us 'til the end If you see what I see Then please tell a friend I'm floating amongst the stars Across the sky...

Breakthrough 03:52
I've been stuck in this room For more than a year Calling on zoom Got pain in my ear I'm getting chubby It's giving me fear This lasts for a lifetime But the end's drawing near My eyes are wide open But I can't see clear The need to escape now For fear of a meltdown We're falling apart Your eyes are my mission A sweet disposition It's breaking my heart I'll dance with you We just need a breakthrough There's wind in my hair And warmth on my skin The front door is closing It won't let me in. As far as the eye can see Rain falls from the sky Fulfilling our destiny But never knowing why

Plug me in Online surfing Racing down the highway Cyber in my mind Connected to computers Humans intertwined I've become a robot In perfect harmony Living in a work of fiction For everyone to see Living virtually In a new reality Driving in hovercars Buy my all-new virtual avatars We don't need our planet We're comfortable and free And everything is burning But it doesn't bother me Mining for gold in the open seas Information is currency Minting pictures of monkeys Mocked by our future's history In a world where we must hold on for our lives (Plug me in) We escape the negativity and the lies (Online surfing) Make the same mistakes again and again and again (Living virtually) Suffering the same old fate until the end (In a new reality)

about

I can't believe I spent 3 years recording this album (very inconsistently!).

It's been the strangest time - this was originally going to be an album about daydreaming and feeling alone while stuck in my house during lockdown, but as time progressed I learnt more about myself and started to actually understand these feelings. While themes of daydreaming are still ever present throughout, I eventually realised quite late into the process that I'm actually just singing about autism, ADHD, and gender dysphoria. That's right, I've got the full wombo combo, and maybe I'll speak about it more one day in the future.

Tracks 8, 9, and 10 are more lighthearted fun, and have much less to do with the overarching theme, but they're songs I'm still really proud of and would love for you to hear. Fun fact, back in 2018 on a livestream I once said I'd eventually make a proper song about cats, and here we finally are!

I had some help and inspiration with the lyrics on tracks 8-11, from someone who goes by Papaya. He didn't want any credit but he's a wonderful person and I couldn't just not!
