I couldn't ask for anything more, I’m so very happy, more than ever before Swim into the air, oh what a full life I have I take my friend’s hand and fly into the air I soar all the way up Nothing could ever get in my way No, nothing could harm me, no not today Above trees and houses, I’ll fly I’ll stay up here, until it’s time to go home I soar all the way up Bittersweet I hope I dream and feel some endorphins, endorphins for me On my bed I try to sleep, I couldn’t sleep, I look outside and try to dream, I… Oh…

I sat there, meek and afraid All I could do was think of my brother I tried to help but I’m too weak and feeble There was nothing I could do They’re coming… they’re coming for you Barbara They’re coming… they’re coming for you I found a strong man to help me After I crashed my car and ran away I hear them knocking at the door All I can do is sit here shaking They’re coming… they’re coming for you Barbara They’re coming… they’re coming for you My brother… I found a strong man… Too weak and feeble… I hear them… Knocking at the door… They’re coming… Ohh…

Gone away, to another place. Is it better? A better place? Home’s too far Home’s too far away but if I was there, I couldn’t be happy Gone away, to another time Is it better? A better time? Home’s too far Home’s too far away but if I was there, I couldn’t be happy I couldn’t be happy, Ooh… I couldn't be

Frank 04:23
Oh I’m afraid, your time is up today Oh it’s too late, you can not run away Creeping, seeping, bleeding, weeping, I awake the dead Suffer for your sins, something is missing from your head A lobotomy, mmm… A lobotomy, mmm… Oh I’m afraid, the creature’s on its way Oh it’s too late, this thing it’s here to stay Waking, falling, running, taking anything that lives Nothing can be safe from me, no nothing can forgive I’m a monster, mmm… I’m a monster and I’m coming for your head I’m a monster, I’m a monster and I’m coming for your head Coulda been me, coulda been me, coulda been me, coulda been me I’m already a monster Coulda been dead, coulda been dead, coulda been dead, coulda been dead I’m already a monster Cautious of me I understand But I feel, something’s underhand Suspicious that something’s kept from sight But I don’t want the things you have

Ice Cream 04:04
Huh Huh Huh Huh Ice cold ice cream for me and my friends Just one more scoop, I really like ice cream I’ll have vanilla… I like it best in summer, the summer Sometimes it melts, but it’s worth the mess I’ll have vanilla… La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la.. Ice cold ice cream… I’ll have vanillaaa!

Cat & Mouse 04:58
Screaming, at the top of our lungs Demanding, we be heard as one Obedient I’ve been, I can no longer be Nothing’s just and nothing’s right not to me We’ve exhausted all our options Picketing our favorite captions Nothing’s left to do but to destroy your worlds Cat and Mouse… Starving, I’m wasting away Death creeps close, but we’ll go as long as it takes You are met with a war of women Filled with rage and anger, we stand as one You can beat us, you can try to take us You can lock us up and walk away But this can only go on for so long Before something more than our bodies break Cat and mouse… And if you can’t hear me, I can scream louder Break every window in your house Cat and mouse…

Energetic mind over body, leads to anxiety Grab your bike and ride and ride, until the water Sometimes you can’t get out, you are trapped in here, with no place to go Walls are closing in, the world is shrinking, you are feeling pretty low Dee oh dee oh da… Energetic mind over body leads to anxiety Grab your bike and ride and ride and ride and ride until the water Sometimes I feel calmer, when I can feel the waves and taste the salt in the air Way too far away, a voice tells you, it’s not the way to go

I couldn’t be luckier than to work with such a dream team of pals. Thank you Trumpy for your amazing skills, good vibes and for creating such a wondrous balance of listening, space and creativity in the studio. Thank you Alyx for such huge generosity of your time, creativity, love, encouragement, and tarot readings. Literally couldn’t have done this without you both!

Thank you to so many of my wonderful friends for encouraging me to do this. Big emotive hugs to Rhys, Matilda, Alyx, Jess, Dave, Emma, Luke, Ida and of course my love of all loves, Tom. Without you, I would still be playing in my room. Special thanks to Freya for your awesome musicianship and for being such a joy to play with and know.

Also thanks to Mary and John for lending us their basement while we started the recording process, as well as included me in their family dinners!

Of course I’ve got to thank the fam for their ongoing support and love! Thanks Mum for sharing your crazy imagination and creativity with me. Thanks Dad for sharing your love and passion for music. Thanks to my sister for teaching me to be brave and trust my instincts. Big love to my housemate family also. Peter, Louis, Rhys, Jimmy and the rest, thanks for the inspiration and putting up with my loops and stomps.

So happy to be releasing this through my friends at Art As Catharsis and Small Pond.
