about

Swimming Through The Milky Way is a journey through my inner world. The spiritual self, the nihilistic self, the scared out of my mind self but also the totally in love with everything self. This is truly what goes on in my head from the moment I wake up to the moment I fall asleep. I think it might be the same for you. We are not alone in these feelings.

This is one side of myself. The other can be found on TWO TONE DEATH WAVE <3

Chill.

Track Name: Off The Plane
I wonder if we're all insane
Because the way that I feel tends to lean that way
And I'm never afraid to admit the to truth that I have no idea about what to do
Every single second is a wash in time with every one screaming “THIS IS MY LIFE!”
We're bonded and tied to comprehend this time as a passenger on the greatest of rides

Woah Oh Woah Oh
And I'm never getting off the plane

Woah Oh Woah Oh
Cause there's more and more to do these days

Woah Oh Woah Oh
And I'm never getting off the plane

Woah Oh Woah Oh
Cause there's more and more to do these days

And that's when it came to me
I'm a little ball of pain inside your handkerchief
She asked me not to worry and I said that I would try
But she knows I don't want to live without her by my side
It sounds so bleak without any end
But you don’t have to worry I've got love from my friends
And I'm happy with that, it's all we need
And I'll never forget the joy that you gave to me
Track Name: Hazy
I’ve been kissing my friends
I’ve been going out smoking and drinking
I haven’t come down in weeks
I close my eyes but I can’t fall to sleep

I’ve been kissing my friends
I’ve been staying out late on weekends
I cannot get off the ship
I threw the anchor but I lost my grip

OH!

I’m coming by in an ambulance
I’ve got a stretcher if you wanna get in
I’m coming by in an ambulance
All of my friends are getting old

I’m feeling hazy
In the underground we kick it all day
I’m feeling hazy
In the underground we got it made

My friends have been kissing me
I’ve been seeing at least 2 girls a week
I think I’ve lost control
I like ‘em both and I think they should know

I’m flying off over oceans
I got the ticket and I’m gonna check in
I’m flying off over oceans
Because New Zealand’s getting old

I’m feeling hazy
In the underground we kick it all day
I’m feeling hazy
In the underground we got it made
I’m feeling hazy
In the underground we kick it all day
I’m feeling hazy
In the underground we might even get laid

No no no we don’t care
We can do what we want
No no no we don’t care
We can do what we want
No no no we don’t care
We can do what we want
No no no we don’t care
We can do what we...
Track Name: Colour Blind Eyes
It's 102 degrees in here and I just can't take the pressure
This music that I write does it have the depth it should?
Ahhh come man, take it easy, stay up late watching TV
Show after show after show after show
With Michael Scott and the Venture Bros
These tranquil episodes they sooth my cramps and clear the cobwebs
That hang like a necklace from around my chest
What is existence?
I cannot go on
I cannot think about it anymore anymore anymore anymore
I just wanna hit the floor go to sleep and never wake up…

And everybody told us that we were gonna go the whole way
Whole way
Whole way

And everybody told us that one day we'd have it made
We’d have it made
We’d have it made

But what they never mentioned was that nobody knows
Nobody knows

Through my colour blind eyes I feel it just goes to show
Goes to show

We're all lost in the nothingness living out eternity

It's 102 degrees in here and I just can't take the pressure
Everything I do does it really take me further?
Come on Paul take it easy
Your brain is going zee zee
Every thing you think about it it causes more uneasyness
Inside your body space and time you cannot stop it
We are the aliens
Inside my head
What is existence?
I cannot go on
I cannot think about it anymore anymore anymore anymore
I just wanna hit the floor go to sleep and never wake up…

And everybody told us that we were gonna go the whole way
Whole way
Whole way

And everybody told us that one day we'd have it made
We’d have it made
We’d have it made

But what they never mentioned was that nobody knows
Nobody knows

Through my colour blind eyes I feel it just goes to show
Goes to show

We're all lost in the nothingness living out eternity

Through my haze eyes I can't seem to grip on this so called reality
Suicide is on the up and up you know I cannot blame them
We've completely lost our grip on our place on the Earth
And this Universe we live in

Ours egos are so big we cannot find a way around it
I’m scared of the little things, this life it too real to go
It’s like everything makes me sick
There’s jealousy, depression and mind is thinking too much I’m wasting time
I’m getting older

And 30 years on I still haven’t found my place
I can’t find a career so I’ll wander away
And 2AM rolls around I got no thoughts of going to bed
Going to bed
I’m wide awake with birthday cake
Writing down lyrics to share
But no one heard a peep for weeks
And I’m the one still counting down years
Through my colour blind eyes I feel it just goes to show
Goes to show
We're all lost in the nothingness living out eternity…
Track Name: Sinking Dreaming
I'm lucky to have anyone come out to my shows
I'm lucky to have you around me when I’m feeling low
Sinking swimming like kids before they take their first breath
Underwater dreaming of a world a mind manifests
Dreams they are so stagnant man I get nothing done
It's much like waking life
I'm always off having fun less than half of the time
The rest is spent thinking why do i even try
I often wonder
I get to live this life embodied as a Paul on a human world

I
I will live on
I will live on
I will live on
I swear to you

My suffering is led on through my relative thought
A disconnection from the universe it's just something taught
The answers they are there and while they're not clear
Why is everyone ignoring what's so glaringly real
Monkeys playing music on stage before fans
Monkeys painting pictures to emote a feeling
And monkeys making love and creating a new window to a world
Of which a child can view their own existence out in an infinite loop
Because with you there wouldn't me
