I'm a big nerd who also happens to love dream pop and shoegaze. I try to combine those things into something pretty.

Track Name: Snares
The air once silent
Is now filled with your voice
I tried to converse
But it all sounds like noise
I hoped that you might understand what I need
But then I saw your traps all springing

But I was never meant to feel so safe
Domestic and reliant on your grace
No longer free to wander
To curiously roam
To sit all day and ponder
How this can be a home
When it's so small

So stop giving reasons
Can't you see I don't care
There's no justifying
Hunting something so rare
Every night I close my eyes and dive into the green
Until the morning when I wake up crying

It's cliched to say that I can't feel
Anything except the pain that I make real
But as these thorns wrap 'round me
It feels like going home
So leave me as you found me
Lost and all alone
Where I'm happy

But I was never meant to feel so safe
Domestic and reliant on your grace
No longer free to wander
To curiously roam
To sit all day and ponder
How this can be a home
When it's so small
Track Name: Pillows
In those icy days
After the new year came
You clutched your pillows to your chest
Alone in a room
Full of onlookers
Who've never felt such loneliness

When fantasies
Are hollow substitutes
With no consistency
Or resistance

In a department store
I am performing tests
On all the pillows I could buy
If I must sleep alone
Then at the very least
I'll have something by my side

But how can I know
About the specifics
Of your consistency
And resistance

It's in this paradox
Where love can fall apart
When we say time and space
Don't come between us
Projects to bring together
Two thrown so far apart
Can never be successful
So they tell us...
