Tightrope 03:42
Baby I've been living on a tightrope Walking on the line between the failures I don't got a mind that you can save, no Cos gravity is always stronger than hope I can be the one you try and save, though If you want to waste your time, then let's go Balancing will always take a big toll When you're mind is always stuck up on the tightrope It's been a long time, baby, since we lost the war So why we always tryin to fight It's been a long time, honey, since we've seen the sun Come on and take me out tonight Baby you're been living on a tightrope Thinking all the time about your failures I can see a heart that wants to win, though So fuck gravity, and let's go Maybe if we try it we can save, oh All you never got, all of that you gave, oh I can tell you you're still afraid of the fall, though Cos your heart is stuck on the tightrope It's been a long time, baby, since we lost the war So why you always tryin to fight It's been a long time, honey, since we've seen the sun Come on and take me out tonight

Settle Down 05:37
I used to want to feel the whole world at once Take off the lid and let it all fall right in It’s so much work to keep this going You know this grind don’t slow And I can see how hard you’re pushing I know, oh baby I know But I I believe I believe I believe in you Believe in you Stop You’re moving too fast You’ve got to settle down You’ve got to settle down Stop We’re moving too fast We’ve got to settle down We’ve got to settle down And now we’re stumbling through our moments Too slow. Too old A world just like a timelapse movie And we’re just dying to adjust But I I believe I believe I believe in you Believe in you Stop You’re moving too fast You’ve got to settle down You’ve got to settle down Stop We’re moving too fast We’ve got to settle down We’ve got to settle down

Nothing 02:47
When I think about the times I’ve cried Over dreams that just got born to die Over it so why should I even begin to try Why should I even get the fuck out of bed You know you’ve made it when the stars they shine And you stop thinking about suicide That’s a joke, you’ll never get this all of this to align But you still got to get yourself out of bed Yeah the world keeps turning And keeps reaffirming That we are all well Truly fucked Grab the wheel Push the pedal to the ground Nothing’s gonna keep us down Cos nothing’s all we have ever known Riot on cue Coming from me to you Nothing’s gonna keep us down Cos nothing’s all we have ever known Maybe it’s not as bad as it sounds Maybe there’s a way to fix this now Where there’s a will there’s a way, yeah they say But i’ve found At first I would have to get out of bed Yeah the world keeps turning oh my god I’m learning That We are all well Truly fucked Grab the wheel Push the pedal to the ground Nothing’s gonna keep us down Cos nothing’s all we have ever known

Hindsight 04:26
Weighing on my mind It's weighing on my mind I can never let it go Scars are the sign I did a bad thing Something I know better now I'm in love with a memory I'm in love with the memory of you Easy on my mind It’s easy on my mind I know I can let it go Everybody have They have a bad time No one wants to say it no This is an S.O.S. Someone help me get out of this place Pull me outside Pull me outside I can give you all my strings The world is a spark and my house is ablaze Grab all the important things We will burn the effigy We will burn the effigy of you We will burn the memory We will burn the memory of you We will say enough is enough That’s enough Settle down I've been waiting This is an S.O.S. Someone help me get out of this place

They say hindsight is 2020, but I'm not sure we ever learn.

Most of these tracks started on the OP-1 and were recorded live on my YouTube channel. Then I took them into Ableton and remixed them and added stuff. I've put the original OP-1 mixes at the end of the album.

The live mix tracks were from the Synthstrom Deluge and performed live for the online Lofi-Festival in 2020.

It's been a year, for sure. Some say it continues to be.

Thank you for your support.
