Naomi Jean Catchy melodies, crisp playing and lush vocal arrangements offset by an electro shimmer that lend a space-age edge to its winning nostalgic tone. Each track sets a clear scene, opening in finely paced layers that cradle wryly poetic urban observations. This is a retro-futuristic joyride that never lets up its warm embrace. Favorite track: Simple Things.

Track Name: Have Some Of Mine
See how my hopeless days are at an end
See how I’ve strayed so far from all my friends

See how they look they stare
they turn this way
In a perfect world I’d give you some of mine, Imagination

Turn out the lights
let the whole thing fade
If I were god in this great parade, I'd say have some, imagination .
Track Name: Done A Number On You
RAGING FOUL MOUTHED LADY FROM ACROSS THE AVENUE

IT’S NOT FAIR THAT LIFE’S DONE THIS TO YOU

SUCKING ON THAT CIGARETTE LIKE YOU WISH IT WAS YOUR LAST

LAST DAY ON THIS COLD, AND CRUEL OLD WORLD


WHO’S THAT MAN THAT SITS WITH YOU, OH SO ALONE

SO SAD THAT ONE THOUSAND YARD STARE

SUCKING ON THAT CIGARETTE LIKE HE WISHED IT WAS HIS LAST

LAST DAY ON THIS COLD, AND CRUEL OLD WORLD


LIFE HAS DONE A NUMBER

DONE A NUMBER ON YOU DEAR

BALANCE CAME UNDONE

MARBLES SMASHED TO PIECES HERE


BROKEN BOTTLES GLASS ON THE GROUND

DIGS INTO YOUR TOES

CHOSEN LIFE YOU'RE TRAINED TO THE SOUND

OF GRINDING IN YOUR BONES
Track Name: Laa
Crawling with no purpose
Claiming you'd deserve us
Your eyes (i choose to close my eyes)
Shut tight

Falling, trying to hurt us
Tipping us the sleeping cow
You try (try while we're wide awake)
You try

Laaa

Failing to convince us now
You cry (crying: your last attempt)
You cry

Laa (wake up wake up wake up)
Laa (wake up wake up wake up)
Track Name: Simple Things
OFF GRID JUST LIKE MR THOREAU
TAKE FROM HER ONLY WHAT YOU’RE ABLE TO GROW
WALK ON OUT WALK ON OUT AND INTO

DROP OUT DO UNTO OTHERS
RIGHTS WRONGS DONE BY ALL OUR FATHERS
WALK ON OUT WALK ON OUT AND INTO
WALK ON OUT WALK ON OUT AND INTO

SELF RELIANCE NON COMPLIANCY
DISPOSESS YOUR FORMER CURRENCY
FREE FROM THE MACHINE SOCIETY
IF IT ALL COULD BE
Track Name: Solitude
WEIGHT SHIFTS ACCROSS THE MOUNTAIN
SOLITUDE’S LONE COMPANION
BETWEEN TWO ETERNITIES
LEAVE ME BE

EFFORT BREATHS CONDENSATION
A MOVING MEDITATION
SO STILL, A RISING SUN
WHAT I NEED
WHAT I NEED
WHAT I

IT’S WHAT I
IT’S WHAT I
IT’S WHAT I

DESCENDING AFTER HOURS
BELLS SOUNDING FROM THE TOWERS
BEAT BEAT FROM THE GROUND
HERE I WILL BE
BURY ME
BURY ME
BURY ME
Track Name: Familiar Order
RIDE IN FEEL SO LIGHT
TO THE UNPREDICTABLE NIGHT
MADNESS WAITS AROUND EVERY CORNER
HEY THERE OLD FAMILIAR ORDER

NOT BY CHOICE WE LOOSE CONTROL
ONE DAY WE WILL PAY A TOLL
THE POTION DRAGS US DOWN DOWN DEEPER
IN OUR DRUNKEN STUPOR

CAUSE I THINK YOU AND I MIGHT BE THROUGH BENDY SUE
IT WAS FUN TO GET TO KNOW YOU
YOU AND I MIGHT BE THROUGH BENDY SUE
BEEN MY PLEASURE HANGIN' OUT WITH YOU
