about

Ross's first big production release is a melodic mix of different styles but seems to remain artistically cohesive throughout. The album begins strange and electric and even funky before it fades into mellower more acoustic pastures.

Track Name: Wake
Better believe they're wrong,
warnings for everyone.
Better than that I know,
Chase all your fears
while they all fall behind
and we're pushing through.

Better believe in love,
I'm fortunate it pulled me out and around.
Setting that in stone,
lose all your fears
while they all fall behind
and we're pushing through.

Wait while you wake,
I'm dreaming of the sun.
You and me wake.

Better believe in time,
I'm worn out but carry on.
Follow the lights you find,
chase all your dreams
so you can call me round.
We're pushing through.

Wait while you wake,
I'm dreaming of the sun.
You and me wake.
Track Name: Let It Out
Let it out it's in the light of the day.
It's in a fading phase,
your mind can wander free.

Get it out where you can see no time,
feel no crash of tides
and soon you'll reach your shore.

I thought I'd seen it all before.
The world is growing louder.
The world is growing louder.
I saw just what was in your mind.
The world is growing louder
but our voice has fallen silent now.

Let it out, let it out of your mind.
It's in a world of mine,
I love you yes I know.

I can't believe that we're wasting our time
so get it out of your mind,
we'll see no bridges burn.

I thought I'd seen it all before.
The world is growing louder.
The world is growing louder.
I saw just what was in your mind.
The world is growing louder
but our voice has fallen silent now.
Track Name: Saved By Luck
Saved by luck or saved by chance
or saved by you?
I won't crave for winters past,
if you only knew.
I won't ever weed out your mind,
if you care for the money or the time
well I don't care for it all.

Goodbye my sweetness said you and I.
Goodbye stop me from crying,
said you can try to save my world.

Down on luck or down on chance
or down on you.
I won't laze in this crazy world
till this phase is through.
I won't ever fall or be mislead.
Stop this world from raining through my head
and I might care for it more.

Goodbye my sweetness said you and I.
Goodbye stop me from crying,
said you can try to save my world.

Well you've got to play your hand
if it's the only thing you have got.

Goodbye my sweetness said you and I.
Goodbye stop me from crying,
said you can try to save my world.
Track Name: Turn On Your Talkbox
Turn on your talkbox,
speak to me alone
while you're lying awake.

Here's something I remember,
my eyes had turned away.
My mind wasn't anywhere,
lights out and unaware.

Turn on your talkbox,
it's a warm effect
and it's working slow.

Here's something I remember,
my eyes had turned away.
My mind wasn't anywhere,
lights out and unaware.

Turn on your talkbox,
speak to me alone
while you're lying awake.

Here's something I remember,
my eyes had turned away.
My mind wasn't anywhere,
lights out and unaware.
Track Name: I Have Seen Beneath The Sea
I have seen beneath the sea,
it's a dark and beautiful life
and it's been crossing my mind
that the way we see isn't always
the way we feel.

I have lost and I have found
the belief that something is there
and it's just waiting for you
and the deeper we dive the more
we come alive.

There are secrets we all hide.
By dawn we're ready to confide
and let out something dark inside
to reveal to ourselves.

I have been beneath the sea
and it glows a magnificent light
and I've been thinking for sometime
that the way we see isn't always
what we believe.

There are secrets we all hide.
By dawn we're ready to confide
and let out something dark inside
to reveal to ourselves.
Track Name: Walking Far Too Long
I've been wondering, I've been waiting
and now a dream has come my way.
Watching you fray undone again.

I've been meaning to remember
the time dark thoughts ran through my head
till you came along, my should you fed.

I've been walking now, walking far too long.
I should pick up speed and run.
I might run away to the sun.

I've been wait, I've been wondering
and now our souls have changed to one
for this lovers song has only begun.

I've been meaning to remind you,
you are the path I chose.
Watching us grow and merge our souls.

I've been walking now, walking far too long.
I should pick up speed and run.
I might run away to the sun.
Track Name: Chasing Thoughts
In our time I've seen they dwell in hollow walls.
A hazy trance awaits, the darkness turns to light.
In the morning I awake, chasing thoughts of all we know and love.

In your mind I've seen you're trying to get out.
A hazy trance awaits, I'm waiting for someone.
In the morning I wake, chasing thoughts of all we know and love.

It's not easy when your vision disappears.
It's not easy being an open book, when your backs against the wall,
but your love will lead all things to follow
and your love has shown that there's a way, when the sky begins to fall.

In your dreams I've seen, you're dying to believe.
A hazy trance awaits, I'm waiting for someone.
In the morning I wake, chasing thoughts of all we know and love.

It's not easy when your vision disappears.
It's not easy being an open book, when your backs against the wall,
but your love will lead all things to follow
and your love has shown that there's a way, when the sky begins to fall.
Track Name: Show Me The Way
Stand at a crossroad and every way looks far from perfect,
show me the way.
It comes out of nowhere to catch me undefended,
show me the way.

And if I fall would you show me the way
and if you're lonely I will treat you the same.
I have lost something so show me.

Falling at my feet are too many options too many answers,
show me the way,
Love's not the greatest excuse for being sad and lonely,
show me the way.

And if I fall would you show me the way
and if you're lonely I will treat you the same.
I have lost something so show me.
Track Name: For A Reason
We're In this place but we could sail around the world in time.
I'm in your mind and I'd be mad to walk away far from my side.

I love you for a reason I can't forget
and let me know your ways I'm wanting more and more.

We'll break this phase and I've been thinking that we can in time.
We'll move away and see lighter days, I'm by your side.

I love you for a reason I can't forget
and let me know your ways I'm wanting more and more.
Track Name: Hollow Walls
Seems my luck is in today,
mournful ways soon to change
and the worries in my head drift away.
Life won't flicker around, this ain't like me.

Wake eyes, come into my hollow walls.
Shame and lies, I won't feel nothing at all.
Wake the dark and lightest skies,
no hint of sighs or crash of tides and down.

Seems I've woken from my sleep,
I'm no fool I'm no creep.
Banish dreams that bring you down way too deep.
Life won't flicker around, this ain't like me.

Wake eyes, come into my hollow walls.
Shame and lies, I won't feel nothing at all
Wake the dark and lightest skies,
no hint of sighs or crash of tides and down.

Move away and move around,
You're running of ways to drown.
I want to share the fortunes in my mind,
I want to see you mine.
