about

"This EP is about a process; a search for love, a search for self-acceptance. It's about overcoming your fears and all the lessons you learn as a young artist living in the city... I want people to identify, feel the story. I wish they'd listen to it while they drive, while they dance, while they're trippin, while they're sad, while they're happy..." - Jenny Penkin

״We made this music for the ears of groovy psychedelic funky dreamy music lovers, with vinyl drum samples from my living room and vibes from space and time"
- Aviv Cohen (Sol Monk)

Track Name: Daydream
Fading
Into the light
Into myself
Into the night
Stay here,
No more despite
I wanna stay here
Till I'm turning bright

Daydreaming
Keeps me alive
Sharps all my senses
Helps me survive
Melting
Into the light
Into the water
Into the white

Something about this makes me
Follow my insanity
I know what I got to
bring to the table
Gravity can't pull me in
No matter what I do I win
I know what I got to
Bring to the table

I'm shaking off my -
I thought that I should let you know -
That I'm shaking off my -
Shaking off my ego

Diving,
Into a dream,
Into a river,
Into the gleam
I'll stay here,
I'll let it shine
I'll catch the horizon
Then I'll be fine

Something about this makes me
Follow my insanity
I know what I got to
Bring to the table
Gravity can't pull me in
No matter what I do I win
Now I know what I got to
Bring to the table

Hey ey ey ey ey ey
Daydreaming all day-ay
I might touch the moon when I am high enough
Imma run till they notice me,
I'll make em see how things really got to be
Yeah, what do they think they see?
If I join them I lose a part of me,
I guess I got what they need
What they need, what they need
Who cares what they need?
Do I live for them or do I live for me?
I rather be daydreaming
Track Name: Game No Mo
I can never know
Who I’ll meet around the block
Occasionally
So I might as well
Watch my step when I walk
Carefully
Heat, it hits my face
I can’t breath. but I never could,
Apparently
Blank, now I can’t see anything
Apart from him
I hate this thing

I never thought it would be easy, but
I don’t wanna play this game no more
No one said it would be easy, but
I dont wanna play this game no more

Love, I could give you anything
But you don’t want none,
That’s too bad.
Think, but don’t think too much
You might lose
And I’ll take him instead
I’ll take him instead

I never thought it would be easy, but
I don’t wanna play this game no more
No one said it would be easy, but
I dont wanna play this game no more
Track Name: Trouble Instead
I always look for love
But I get in trouble instead
And when you put it like that,
I see trouble ahead
I should’ve listened to my body
Just like you said
Don’t know what you did
But I hear a voice in my head

Blurry colors won’t let me get out of my bed,
Get out of my bed, get out of my bed

If I close my eyes,
Would it help me reset my mind?
Maybe I can meet someone
Who’ll help me rewind?
There must be a way to contain me,
I am not blind.
Is it so hard to find?
Is it so hard to find?

I’m not ready to leave my emotions behind
My emotions behind, emotions behind

Help me reset my mind,
Emotions behind, emotions behind
Blurry colors won’t let me get out of my bed
Get out of my bed,
I’ll get out of my bed.
Track Name: Born Last Night
What a relief,
I can’t believe that it took so long
I like new things,
Even them things I used to think were wrong
Now I can see,
I was just scared of being alone

I understand,
It’s all in my hands,
I could easily make a safe land,
Fall on a sand,
Be where I chose to be
Make a new plan,
Zero demands, be who I chose to be

(Maybe I was trippin’)

I was born last night, felt the speed of light,
I was free alright, I was feeling’ tight,
What a delight.
I was born last night, I was on a flight
To another star, I was seeing bright,
Feeling like a kite.
(Floating in space)
Never felt so deep inside
Feeling’ tight, doin’ alright, what a delight,
What a delight.
Never felt so deep inside,
Felt the speed of light,
I’m on a flight to another star,
I was born last night

I’m going deep, cause I wanna keep
myself from fallin’ in,
Locking my knees, Im bigger than this,
I’ll pull up my chin.
Straighten my back,
No one could tell, but I was losing it
losing it

Went down the stairs,
Felt so aware,
Maybe I had too much
I didnt care, was gonna stare
'Till I came in touch
with everything, everything,
Everything…

(Maybe I was trippin’)
I was born last night, felt the speed of light,
I was free alright, I was feeling’ tight,
What a delight.
I was born last night, I was on a flight
To another star, I was seeing bright,
Feeling like a kite.
(Floating in space)
Never felt so deep inside
Feeling’ tight, doin’ alright, what a delight,
What a delight.
Never felt so deep inside,
Felt the speed of light,
I’m on a flight to another star,
I was born last night
Track Name: What If
Is this a dream,
Am I awake?
What am I feeling?
Is this a dream?

Is this for real,
Is this a mistake?
What am I feeling,
Is this all fake?

What If I run away?
Will you forget me?
What If I rather stay In this dream forever?
