about

Wakeless 2095 is a concept album that features reflective songs and observations of the human experience.

The album follows the story of a character who awakens in a dream-like utopia, later discovering they're actually asleep and trapped inside their own dream. The songs detail not only their experiences while within the dream, but also the conflicting feelings they have towards their waking life. Ultimately, they must decide whether to live in the fantasy or embrace reality. Overall, Wakeless 2095 is a story of dealing with the complexities of relationships, mental illness, and strength in the face of adversity.

Track Name: Morning Mollify
Fastened to 6:00 AM
Pugnacious, veil, pretend
Crowded by callowness
Foggy eyes, deep pretence

Bursting light,
It seems to mollify
Windowed light,
Entering through the center of your eye

Memories concave, colours that fade
I’m fast asleep, my eyes wide awake
7:00 awaits...
7:00 awaits

Bursting light,
It seems to mollify,
Windowed light,
Entering through the center of your eye

Bursting light,
It seems to mollify,
Windowed light,
Entering through the center of your eye
Track Name: danceboy.exe
Coveted what you could only find,
Anxious to waste what little time,
Hope with what only fills your eye

Coveted what you could only find,
Anxious to waste what little time,
I’m running away but it’s not because I’m scared

Coveted what you could only find,
Anxious to waste,
I’m running away ‘cause it never seems to stop
Track Name: Crystal Beach
My only fear is delusion,
And inundated contusion

It’s never reached it’s way outwards it’s birthed inside
Worldview in fragments of what all seems so benign
It’s never as it seems, I wanna hear it from the back of my head,
my head

If there was a way out, I’d take it right now
If there was a way out, I’d take it right now
Now
Track Name: TV Dream
From wall to wall inveigles me,
born habit that would tell lied

I drove past your house and the lights were still on
Won’t answer my call, I know that I’m wrong
The weight of the world only follows me home
My footsteps alone

It’s not a sound I recognize
It’s late at night
The air around you dissipates
the sound around you echoing as always

I drove past your house and the lights were still on
Won’t answer my call, I know that I’m wrong
The weight of the world only follows me home
My footsteps alone

Get lost in the feed
Sing so long
Without trying to feel

Get lost in the feed
And sing so long
What I’ve tried to feel

Feeding current
Through the coloured glare
Fragmented
Signals in the air
Lost in the feed, lost in the feed, lost in the feed...
Track Name: Focus Your Eyes
Bitten by the brunt,
Encrypted or debunked,
Encapsulate my tongue

Hold your toxic tongue, focus your eyes and you’ll see, with all my thoughts unspun, you’ll bleed them on me

Hold your toxic tongue
Focus your eyes and you’ll see
If all my thoughts were sung
You’d lean then on me

Painted lachrymose
A graft becomes a host
I was tending towards
Painted lachrymose
A graft becomes a host
I was tending towards
My words painted in dröst

Focus your eyes, deep inside me,
focus your eyes, deep inside
there was a time, beneath the light
focus your eyes
deep inside

Hold your toxic tongue
Focus your eyes and you’ll see
If all my thoughts were sung
You’d bleed them on me
Track Name: Follow
I’m so sick of happenstance
Cut the rope, let me fall to the floor
I’m buried beneath all this pressure
Carrying a load

I’m sick of your bull shit
The rock, the hard place, whether they exist
I’ve never had your life long blessing
Of being what I want

You wear your convictions, as open source
I’m struggling to keep composure
My dignity is gone

If one of us a victim, the other lost out
In hoping that you won’t find out, what little known is gone, for now

If written was the reason, reason written these they follow,
another wound that’s bleeding, I don’t feel at all
If written was the reason, reason written these they follow,
another wound that’s bleeding, I don’t feel at all
Track Name: Apparition I
I, I’m lost in the ether, stuck in this sleeper
I, I’m stuck in this holding, lost every moment

Where did my mind go, where is my mind?
Where did my mind go, where is my mind?

Now, all across the open, that that once was molten
Now, the land that once was golden, now completely frozen
Now, I won’t wake ‘till the dawn
I broke through the timeline, buried in snow
Now I won’t wake...where did my mind go?

Where did my mind go, where is my mind?
Where did my mind go, where is my mind?
Track Name: Apparition II
How many lights are shining?
The one I loved the most
Makes you believe you saw it

How many lights are shining?
The one I loved the most
Makes you believe you saw it

How many lights are shining?

Underneath my surface I am only just a boy, in time
Tending towards the ocean where the water surely drowns, in time, reprise.
Track Name: Wakeless
And if the world would fall straight,
I would not rebuild it back

Well wait for, make sure, aim for
I know, I’ll know
Well waiting it won’t stop, wakeless it won’t stop, wakeless I won’t find a cure
Wakeless, it won’t stop waiting...
Wakeless you come to my door

The colours all, all fade away,
I end my life, or do I just awake?

Colours fade, I stay the same
Wakeless I won’t stop
Wakeless it won’t stop, wakeless it won’t stop
While the colours fade, I stay the same

The colours all, all fade away,
End my life? Or do I just awake?

Are we dead weight?
life so finite
Are we dead weight?
Our life so finite?

Colour, colour blind
Remission redefined
You dictate on my
Fourth or fifth try
Colour, colour blind
Remission redefined
You dictate on my
Fourth or fifth time
