Agnostic 03:12
After all, who knows, and who can say Agnostic is a way we use to convey I don’t know, I don’t know Attempting to conceive what we believe After all, who stays, and who will leave I don’t know, I don’t know I don’t know, I don’t know

Time is making crystals of your tears Embrace the future that follows your fear We were sunshine, a dream that we missed Are you still out there I like knowing you exist I’ve been right beside you all along Walls become bridges that never burn down Feel my love inside of you Love me and I’ll feel it too Rays of moonlight wash over the years You’re part of me now, my treasure, my dear Hope, it lingers with dreams the sun missed I feel you out there I like knowing you exist I’ve been right beside you all along Walls become bridges that never burn down Feel my love inside of you Love me and I’ll feel it too Firefly still gives me hope and light I feel the past shrinking With the future’s shining I’ve been right beside you all along Walls become bridges that never burn down Feel my love inside of you Love me and I’ll feel it too I’ve been right beside you, dear I’ve been right beside you here

Star Pockets 04:27
I keep the best memories in my mind lace Star pockets nestle my headspace For restless days when I hit rewind More passion, creation Less hesitation Sometimes I try to unite at my young place Fate intersects with an old face Waiting with wisdom and sage advice Full fire desire No dwelling in mire More passion, creation Less hesitation Full fire desire No dwelling in mire

The world owes none of us a living An open heart is better off giving Pies fly high in troppo filled skies It’s not the right time for rabbit hole deep dives I don't mind the melancholy in you I don't mind the clouds blocking the blue You never flinch when I give an inch You always smile when I take a mile Life is a gift, so grab it Waiting around is tragic Time isn’t long, so latch it We make our own magic It's silly to crave a conversation with my younger self Always on the edge of memory hidden on some high shelf All of us are protagonists in our own stories None of us should be bit players in our own glories Life is a gift, so grab it Waiting around is tragic Time isn’t long, so latch it We make our own magic Life is a gift, so grab it Waiting around is tragic Time isn’t long, so latch it We make our own magic What would you do if you had no fear You can only say as much as somebody can hear Are you a first draft at the eleventh hour Or a fresh gasp of a newborn flower

Joy Bugaloo 05:38
I had my last crush at five It was my first taste of being alive Short pants romance Fire heart fast dance Guitar riffing grasshopper Key tickling bumblebee Skin slapping ladybug Ethereal singing butterfly Fly away with us to castles in the air It’s new to you if you become a Bugaloo No soul needs wings to dive Not a lot changed at fifty-five Last chance advance Colder heart first glance Guitar riffing grasshopper Key tickling bumblebee Skin slapping ladybug Ethereal singing butterfly Fly away with us to castles in the air It’s new to you if you become a Bugaloo Tranquility Forest is for us Tranquility Forest is for us Fly away with us to castles in the air It’s new to you if you become a Bugaloo I had my first crush at five Not much has changed past fifty-five The senses of our world believe Just the memory stays around to sing I fly with Joy, I fly with Joy I fly with Joy, I fly with Joy

I can see it, a clear picture in my mind Visualizing it, a lucid dream where I can fly Imagination, perception, views left behind Ideas and concepts from my mind’s eye (Mind’s eye) Mirror of the mind (Mind’s eye) Tablets of the memory Eye of the mind Inward eye My mind’s eye Thought intellection Abstractionist impression Theories of fantasies Notions of fancy from my mind’s eye (Mind’s eye) Mirror of the mind (Mind’s eye) Tablets of the memory Eye of the mind Inward eye My mind’s eye (Mind’s eye) Mirror of the mind (Mind’s eye) Tablets of the memory Eye of the mind Inward eye My mind’s eye

Resonance 03:01
You amplify vibrating sound You are the higher natural tendency Phenomenon of frequency resounds Daylight finds favor as sunrise Echoes sound Moonlight finds favor as twilight Waves echo around You always were and still you are You are a love that resonates with me Sunrise finds favor with twilight You always were and still you are You’ll always be my favorite frequency You always were and still you are Resonance that rings

Follow your eyes to me It is time for you to see why Summer sunsets of fire light the sky Autumn is so high Winter brings lace of lovely white Spring is smiling bright Your lips are just like sticky candy Your eyes fill with desire just like Summer sunsets of fire light the sky Autumn is so high Winter brings lace of lovely white Spring is smiling bright Summer sunsets of fire light the sky Autumn is so high Winter brings lace of lovely white Spring is smiling bright Our love fills skies With cotton candy clouds Our love fills skies

Boogie Orbit 02:51
Hurry and blast off Make haste until we float No need for a send off Don't leave with a fridge note Boogie through orbit with a bounce and a sunny smile Light years are weird years that long a little while Can't stop, won't stop We boogie and we bop Can't stop, won't stop We move until we drop Dreaming of flying, it's our turn to play No falling to Earth when it's so far away Shaking moneymakers through our star riddled skies Outer space is our place to shine wide open eyes Can't stop, won't stop We boogie and we bop Can't stop, won't stop We move until we drop Dreaming of flying, it's our turn to play No falling to Earth when the sun slips away into the fray Into the fray, into the fray Into the fray, into the fray You know we can't stop, won't stop We boogie and we bop Can't stop, won't stop We move until we drop Dreaming of flying, it's our turn to play No falling to Earth when it's so far away Space buns on a princess head With permanence and pop Fiction meets science in a phase A fan frenzied fop

Harmony got lost in the breeze Chasing the sun Melody stargazes with the free Finding some fun Harmony came back with the sea Fading so young Melody trespasses with a dream Words left undone Siren sisters sing in stereo Dreams don’t chase themselves The hope will linger far beyond tomorrow Dreams don’t chase themselves, no Harmony gave in with such ease Loving someone Melody starts aching with a need Passion won’t come Siren sisters sing in stereo Dreams don’t chase themselves Hope will linger far beyond tomorrow Dreams don’t chase themselves Siren sisters sing in stereo Dreams don’t chase themselves With love that lingers well beyond all sorrow Dreams don’t chase themselves away

about

This is my first post-pandemic album and my fifth solo release. I attempted to create an escapist journey to the stars with a grateful spirit and a heavy dose of introspection.

Fun Fact: "Joy Bugaloo" is track five on my fifth solo album. It also references the numbers five and fifty-five in the lyrics.
