distant planet This is truly innovatory, inventive and individualistic.
There is something laid-back, haunting and dreamlike about the music but wth an underlying hint of gritty, hard rock. Favorite track: Underwater.

Track Name: Underwater
I try to walk away but you pull me under
I try to say no, but you're my favorite lover
Some days I stay afloat but it doesn't last
You reel me in before the line was cast

You invite me, so I guess I'll go
You don't bother to take it slow
The tide comes when the sky was blue
I love the way you pull me underwater with you

I left you behind, I thought it ended there
But without replacement, I felt bare
My heart barely beat when you were around
But it beats just as slowly with my feet on the ground

Maybe you were never meant to leave
Maybe we belong together
I'd rather be miserable with you
Because at least that made sense

You invite me, so I guess I'll go
You don't bother to take it slow
The tide comes when the sky was blue
I love the way you pull me underwater with you
Track Name: Surfacing
I've got something to say
I've got something to prove
I've figured you out
I can see right through

Don't pretend it'll be different
Next time
'Cause I convince myself
I drown in lies
But not this time

And I am surfacing
And I am not afraid of drowning

I let you hold me back
I let you make me small
Most days I still hear your voice
Like I don't have one at all

And all it took was a look in the mirror
To see the truth
I let the world revolve around my ribs
And all I got was you

And I am surfacing
And I am not afraid of drowning
Track Name: Ocean
Another phone call that she's gone
I've lost count of her adventures on the run
Chasing the highs and the lows of the streets
Falling in the love with the strangers she meets
But this time she crossed the line
She walked out the door as her baby cried

She's a girl caught in a storm
A stranger's arms will keep her warm
She's in too deep, can't help but blame her
Even the ocean couldn't save her

Yet another knock at the door
With promises of something to live for
From addict to mother, feeling alive
From needles to bottles late at night

But this time she crossed the line
She walked out the door as her baby cried
And this time she won't come back
God damn you, the Queen of Relapse

She's a girl caught in a storm
A stranger's arms will keep her warm
She's in too deep, can't help but blame her
Even the ocean couldn't save her

There won't be a next time
Say goodbye to your new life
Say hello to every high
Say goodbye to looking in his eyes

She's a girl caught in a storm
(Swim away, it's what you do best)
A stranger's arms will keep her warm
(Swim away, it's what you know best)
She's in too deep, can't help but blame her
(Swim away, it's what you do best)
Even the ocean couldn't save her
(Swim away, it's what you know best)

Even the ocean couldn't save her
She let the tide come and take her
Track Name: Mermaid
Do you know what it means to be a lover
Do you feel what we say to one another
Please don't say it's too late to take me under
With you

Do you know what it means to be drowning?
From the outside in, we're all frowning
Please don't say it's too late to breathe
With you

Take me to the other side
I just wanna feel okay
Let the water overflow
And I'll forget my mistakes
No need to breathe
We're all free
I am a mermaid

I guess it's time to embrace that I'm a strange girl
I went away but now I'm locked inside a strange world
I hope I'll get to go back to what I once created
With you

Do you get sick inside when you are thinking
About forgetting things we were once dreaming
But you said it's too late to dream
With you

Take me to the other side
I just wanna feel okay
Let the water overflow
And I'll forget my mistakes
No need to breathe
We're all free
I am a mermaid
Track Name: California Man (feat. Bryce Tolbert)
You go around telling everyone that you're fine
After this drink, you say, "I swear this is the last time"
So I hope the streets are painted with gold for you

You're like the bottles you drink
Cold and empty inside
It's the California man in you that breaks my heart every time

Without a goodbye, you went and hopped on the next plane
I guess it doesn't matter
You never took the time to know me anyway

You say you're there, but you'll never understand
You are a ghost that is slipping through my hands
So I hope the streets are painted with gold for you

You're like the bottles you drink
Cold and empty inside
It's the California man in you that breaks my heart every time
Track Name: Baby
My baby likes to have a good time
My baby takes a shot like he's fine
My baby's got a long way down

My baby's a masquerade
He's never-ending pity parade
He just wants to drown

He said you don't want to live in my life
I wake every day just to die every night
And I'm never coming back, no, I'm never coming back
Never coming back, no, I'm never coming back

My baby told me once
There was no hope for us
He never let me try
I tried to reach out to him
He built up walls like a kid
He just let us die

It was so hard, times were so dark
I know, I know
It was so sad, things got real bad
I heard, I heard

He said you don't want to live in my life
I wake every day just to die every night
And I'm never coming back, no, I'm never coming back
Never coming back, no, I'm never coming back

It was so hard, times were so dark
I know, I know
It was so sad, things got real bad
I heard, I heard

He said you don't want to live in my life
I wake every day just to die every night
And I'm never coming back, no, I'm never coming back
Never coming back, no, I'm never coming back

He said you don't want to live in my life
I wake every day just to die every night
And I'm never coming back, no, I'm never coming back
Never coming back, no, I'm never coming back

Never coming back, no, I'm never coming back
Never coming back, no, I'm never coming back
Never coming back, no, I'm never coming back
