about

At the cusp of 2015 with my partner and I putting our long running project Alligator Indian on hiatus and my 30th birthday approaching, I started spending a lot of time reflecting on my three decades of life and my past ten years of music making. Out of this contemplation grew the project Absolute Fantasy, which saw me mining both experiences and past songs and compositions for both lyrical and musical concepts. One of the earliest tracks to grow out of this was "20th Century Analysis," which I began working on while on an annual river house trip with some of my cohorts from the short-lived Asheville, NC performance space Apothecary. As I constructed the song, using samples of pieces I wrote for school nearly a decade earlier, I began recalling memories and feelings from my days in college. Much of the track focuses on my sense of isolation in my many music classes as I was a relative newcomer to the world of classical music and voice, which I was studying. The one class that really clicked for me was the eponymous 20th Century Analysis, which focused on modern classical and 12 tone music.

The title, Well Come Home, encapsulated my infatuation with viewing my past through the eyes of my present that was fueling my project. As chance would have it, my partner and I ended our six years of living in Asheville by moving back to the Space Coast to the town of Cape Canaveral, just north of where we grew up. The title took on an especially fitting meaning and so, after Ricardo Stacy of Memory No. 36 agreed to release the EP, I felt it was the perfect time to share these songs.

Track Name: Cold Open
I don't wanna shout
Sorry that I talk so loud
Track Name: 20th Century Analysis
Thinking bout taking a year off
Maybe I'll head back home
Maybe it's time to go somewhere else
Man I don't know 

Everyone here's got years on me
Can't get it through my head
Honestly I'm more concerned with all the things I could be doing in my bed

Maybe this is best for both of us
So you can save me all them looks
Cus I know that when I die ain't no one gonna write about me in books

So ask me you've got questions
I know the answers to them all
And if I don't know them well then no one knows and no one will

Tell me you've got answers 
I wanna know them all
And if you don't hold me down 
I swear that I won't take you with me when I fall

Thinking bout taking the world on
Maybe I'll try next fall
Thinking bout maybe just taking off 
Who would even miss me at all

Thinking bout taking my time on this 
Been running at the wall
And if you hold me down I swear I'm gonna take you with me when I fall 

Thinking bout taking more chances
Or a chance I never took
Cus I know the life I live is harder than the one I read about in books

So ask me you've got questions
I know the answers to them all
And if I don't know at all then no one knows know no one does

Ask me no more questions
Don't wanna answer you at all
And if you hold me down I swear to god I'll take you with me when I fall

Thinking bout taking a year off
Maybe I'll head back home
Maybe it's time to go somewhere else
Man I don't know 
Track Name: Be Haunted
Ooh, scary
Track Name: Déplacement
Things have gotten easier
That's what makes it hard to walk away
But if I never venture out
I know there's nothing gained, things stay the same
My heart is beating fast now
Panic's setting in
Where should I go?

I thought it would be easier
But things ain't ever simple when you're on your own
