about

The lights are down and I'm lying on my back with my headphones on. The music is loud. It makes my head throb. Lights are spinning around me, but I can't tell where they're coming from. There are mirrors on the walls, but I avoid looking at my reflection. I'm cold. The walls are gray and speckled with colored static. I close my eyes.

lyrics

Baby, don't you know
I've gone away
But you're all wrapped
Around these gears
Dreamin' that tomorrow is today

And honey, do you think
The world's gone by?
But don't you look at me
You're only growing
Older 'til you die

Close your eyes
You're only growing older
'Til you die
You're only growing older
Close your eyes

Baby, don't you know
The world's okay
But you're all stuck
Inside these tears
Wishin' that your life
Would slip away

And honey, do you think
You've seen the sky?
But you're the same as me
You're only growing
Older 'til you die

Close your eyes
You're only growing older
'Til you die
You're only growing older
Close your eyes

about

Marianas Portland, Maine

Music, to me, is about creating spaces that your mind can travel to. Get lost in. Grow in. Songs are poetry, and poetry is sculpture. Music is art, and my goal as an artist is to create a song that changes someone's life.
