about

“Sleep Cycle is about the cycles that we go through being shut down by fear and doubt and how to return back to being awake to life. The songs were written as a form of self medication, meditations on waking up in the face of fear.”
- Deakin

Track Name: GOLDEN CHORDS
days fog / can’t see past the edge of what’s gone but i’m hoping i’ll try / and the rain shines / and the showers and the fawns in the field arrange in my eyes / so why fight? / with nature’s call around / you talk about frights / in the verse of the every song / you tell me what’s wrong / but what’s right? / you’re seeing creation / that crushing never ending change is so full of love / and so you’re waking to face the change in your role / and with each restless shiver you wretch from your soul / you’re asking / is that something I’m not anymore? / a brother to shake these broken chords till they turn gold / and I tried / to survive without that gold / and wondering why / our exchange can never hold / am I what’s wrong? / well what’s right? / stop trusting in demons / you’re scattered ever lonely buddy but so full love / please stop repeating your terror you choose what you see / it’s always “what if?” and “why not?” / man you gotta just be / simplify define your goals and watch them grow / be your own true self the you that I know / days gone / as I peer past the edge of what’s lost I’m starting to cry / but the rain’s fine / and the tears feel warm and my body is humming alive / in time / you’ll revive what you thought dead / you’ve stopped your own climb / on the verge of every end / you tell me what’s wrong / but what’s right? / stop believing your being’s been shattered and distorted cause brother your so full of love / and so you’re hoping to make a change in your role / repeating mantras to find some ground for your soul / stop asking / Is that something I’m not anymore? / a brother to shake these broken chords till they turn gold
Track Name: JUST AM
standing in the desert faces stare back from the dunes / brought here by courage or delusion i won’t stop but i feel ripping mad / so i am crying words that don’t make sense to me or them / but i am singing i am singing beams the child inside then disappears again / still i go on repeating words of loss and failure / of every choice that i gave up to guardian anger / i hope that you can feel life / cause even watching descent i see light // but i recall i called you hate / repeated words get locked and phased / and these words attach / some words like stone / you find with time you build more than sow / you build a house / you build what you know / I wonder if that’s home // tangled up at home unloved intentions all i see / all those collected stacked and fretted over treasures leave me spinning so / i’ll leave the door wide open my old friend there’s more unfound / it’s time for letting wounds and breaking through these pretty patterned knots i twist around / dad i can’t see i’ve lost my voice i need direction / reweighed each choice so many times i’ve lost reflection // you’ve got to let go so you’ll grow / then even when you feel blind you’ll still know // so i asked again when i get home can i build space? / and clear these ripples of disorder and erosion i feel nipping mad / and when i find my way through all discolor in my mind / swear i’ll never leave imbalance or impatience standing guard or keeping time / cause i hold on to things that dearly need replacing / broken time ruling pain and failed aging / when i let go i just am / conjured back to myself i just am // in holding on i’ve grown too tight / my joints are cracked my eyes gone white / stop holding / don’t wait too long your face is sown / your fears won’t fail and new ones will show / only steps you take will help you to grow / and when I hope i hope i’m home / i’ll step inside and i’ll feel grown / if only / don’t wait for safe just fall inside / and wisely forgetting to take / that treasured stain you’ve always relied / i wonder what you’ll show
Track Name: FOOTY
all my life i have travelled in needs / now i’ve found what i crave / you’ve got to be brave / i know it’s hard when you feel i’m sleeping / friend in rain i’m awake / let’s shake / we’ll shake // and whether you would or you won’t isn’t traced across every word / the place and the smell will instantly place your evident crime / rotten replaced regrown and renamed / a bottomless game / and if you’re unsure just look in his face / you’ll see he’s alright // he’s fine / the same as all man / in time i’ll have to ask him // i just want to see you happy / man i know that you try / your high / always fine / you’ve got to get // and when you’re awake your eyes shine bright / you’re so fine / my pride lifts me up into places so right / and I know on my mark / we’ll trespass again and again it’s all mine / and i’m all fine / i’ll always tear up when i see how you shine / in your unwary nights // you’re fine / i’m rolling over / this time / no run for cover / he’s shaking it
Track Name: GOOD HOUSE
by my hands or with fire / i’ll be cleaning black temples that i’d built in defense / my polishing shines i find / spent my time fearing age / and retreating from answers to questions i’d asked / in each passing stage i poked myself blind / i lost time / i lost minds // you might find that there’s eyes / you might find only your eyes / well retrain them to send / at first just pretend / but later for searching much further / each trail leaves you open / decide you’re light / cause brother it’s time / you’ll always find life // hold on / keep up / I’ll show you inside / in this / good house for it’s light / i spend all my time / here taste good bread / i bake for my mind / inside I fold my well lived advice / it says / when you feel tired / there’s more left inside / slow down / breathe deep / if you cry in mourning revive / lay down / be quiet / is this how we pray? / my hands / can show us the way / but feel how they shake // too bright / but then too dim / you always find reasons you’re frightened / so frightened / that you won’t go in / and reason may fight you / so even then // Don’t wait / feel shy / come sit at your place / cause you can / your body rewired / you may feel strange // breathe in without / breathe out you’re alright / breathe in with all / breathing out all that shame / no cowering fright / keep building up waves / replenish in flight // so i breathe my way down / and i breathe my way deeper / when i’ve grown i ascend / at sea see my hands / they’re stretching much further and stronger they’re holding my life to the fire / no tries / fire builds fire // shiva come home / i’m ready to play / when we dance / great heights are required / I won't feel ashamed //divine and spun right round / the center unwinds you’re unfolding / divine and spinning round / your pleasure is binding / and held in trance // as I spin / i grow / embracing decay / with each turn / delight comes alive / loss slipping away // breathe in without / breathe out / you’re alright / breathe in with all / spit out all that rage / your safe now don’t fight / your body’s engaged / just flow and get right / like following angels / you're following angels
