about

eternal perfect motion is a collection of some of my favourite songs i've ever written. thank you for supporting me on this incredible journey. my first lp is something i honestly didn't think would happen very soon, and i'm incredibly excited to run into the future with a full length release under my belt

i can only go up from here
we can only fly higher

special thanks to meghan (ink sparks), jackson (atlas), sparky (totalspark), declan (vylet), and intersekt for contributing their fantastic talents to this project. ily <3

Track Name: Fade (w. Totalspark)
where were you when it all came crashing down
where were they when you left me there to drown
when the winds fall tired, as before
i’ll remain, weighed down and wanting more

i was never questioned
whether this was wrong or right
assuming for the better
i stepped into the light
and with pains and tribulations
wonderment and strife
each one after the other
ripped forever from my life

where were you when it all came crashing down
where were they when you left me here to drown
when the oceans and the winds grow tired and sore
i’ll lay still, the past more than before

i only wanted purpose
i never needed might
i only dreamed of knowledge
not of this black hole of sight
i only wanted gladness
i never needed pain
i only thought myself so full
of empathy, not distain

i never wanted these
i never needed you
i never asked for anything
i never pleaded too
i only want to see them
i never needed loss
i only dream of faces past
and of the lives you cost

where were you when it all came crashing down
where were they when you left me there to drown
when my legs grow weary and my body uncared for
i’ll welcome it completely and sink into the floor

i miss you more
i miss you more
Track Name: Fairylights (ft. Vylet)
tiny bells wrapped
round my feet
roses laying still
in vacant streets

some of what
dreams bring to me
are the things i saw
when this became history

i harmonize with angel sighs through
lullabies of neon lights
and hold my ground
until i fall

i see the hope in words you spoke and
wind my fears up tight with rope
until they’re bound
inside my heart

forget the story
forget the plan
let’s only restart
forget the mandatory
right where we began
will we now depart

i reach my hand
there’s nothing there
fingers tightening
round empty air

dug up graves
chasing memories
one more search
for unwanted clarity

i sang the songs with you that night
when only sound and sight sufficed
you held me down
under your skin

i closed the door your spirit soared
to feel yourself be so adored
but the smiles are gone
never again

forget the story
forget the plan
let’s only restart
forget the mandatory
right where we began
will we now depart

everything falls apart
what comes with a change of heart

surround me
surround me

forget the story
forget the plan
let’s only restart
forget the mandatory
right where we began
will we now depart

everything falls apart
what comes with a change of heart
Track Name: Viridescent (ft. Ink Sparks, w. Intersekt)
i remember gazing up
at the light above the sea
seeing everything we've done
come back to me

yet tinges of the past
colour endless strands in rings
visions of an endless life
where our love can grow and sing

i've seen the brightest light
i've seen the greenest leaves
and every night i wish upon
the stars beyond the eaves

who are we to know?
who are we to care?

i remember spheres of air
coalescing on command
i could see the stars fall at my feet
though i held them in my hands

yet through the empty void
i clung to the unknown
flashes of a memory
from a mind i didn't own

i've seen my people die
i've seen my people weep
and every night i cry alone
wondering how you can sleep

but who are we to know?
who are we to care?
Track Name: The Infinite (w. Atlas Grey)
[ataraxia]
this all began with a spark
from your eyes
when this all began i was on my own
through the wind and snow and ice

watching beyond the sidelines
for a sign of courage

the world turns steadily
and i am caught inside your rays
everything is infinite
when it is all you know
(and you keep it all inside)

keep it all inside
carelessly
let it go

[atlas grey]
this all began with three words
and you left without even one
when this all began you tread carefully
but you stomped me down inside

i'm peering through the curtain
and i see everything change

watching beyond the sidelines
for a sign of life

[ataraxia]
the world turns steadily
and i am caught inside your rays
everything is infinite
when it is all you know
(and you keep it all inside)

keep it all inside
carelessly
let it go
