My thanks to the many people who supported this journey. James, thank you for making this real with me and, Carolina, your food kept me going! My mother, my father, thank you for bringing me into this world. My brother, my sister, you two are my pillars, my foundation, my shining mirrors, for always. My extended family all over the world, thank you for sharing life’s moments, for growing up with me. Gabriele, thank you for a song and the feelings which inspired it. My friends, you allow me my solitude and welcome me with open arms when I seek you out, thank you. Paul, I thank you and Nasser for your part in my growth into adulthood. As above, so below.

I dedicate this to the eighty one people who chose to fund this album, your support made my dream real, thank you. May your dreams be loved as you have loved mine.

Finally, I honour the Divine feminine and masculine, the God alive in all things. May we all find balance. Blessed is The Name.

Track Name: Little Brother
Keep on brother it’s all I can say
You know the way
You know the way
Wait up brother wait for us
I will walk beside you
With our sister it’s enough

Oh brother brother look and see
So many similarities
Oh brother brother you and me
We keep it simple
Little Brother

Shine on brother where you are
Kow that you still light me up
Even when you shine from far
I hug each sunrise cos I know
You made it warm for me
A little while ago

Oh brother, brother, look and see
So many similarities
Oh brother, brother, you and me
We keep it simple
Little Brother

And you know I’m always there
Cos I ain’t goin’ anywhere
You and I are not afraid
We keep it simple
Keep it simple
Little Brother
Track Name: 9 Lives (Cat's Got Time)
We’re full of fascination
For material medication
Should we blame our education
For this fucked up situation
Fucked up situation

What is it that we fear
Come close but not too near
Let’s smile and shed a tear
For the songs we love to hear
Songs we love to hear

All I need’s a patch of sunlight
From where to watch the world run by
You tell me life’s a rat-race
I’m no rat I’ve got time

This cat’s got time
This cat’s got time
This cat’s got time
This cat’s got time

What brought us to this place
What is it that we chase
Our future has a face
Full of wonder and grace
Full of wonder and grace

All I need’s a patch of sunlight
From where to watch the world run by
You tell me life’s a rat-race
I’m no rat , I’ve got time

This cat’s got time
This cat’s got time
This cat’s got time
This cat’s got time
Track Name: Slow It Down
I know this to be true
That the world
Spins too fast
Leaves some folk behind
On this ship
Without a mast

Oh no no no

Somebody please
Slow it down
Slow it down
Slow it down

I see you beside the road
With your life
Packed in a case
I try to understand
But then you’re gone
Without a trace

Oh no no no

Somebody please
Slow it down
Slow it down
Slow it down

Somebody please
Slow it down
For a while
Slow it down

Words become a blur
And are lost
Misunderstood
But I’ll stand here on the edge
Try to catch
All I should

Oh no no no

Somebody please
Slow it down
Slow it down
Slow it down

Somebody please
Slow it down
For a while
Slow it down
Slow it down
Track Name: In The Shadows
It's hard to open up my eyes
When I feel like I've been blind
All of my days, now I'm
Wandering through the haze
And the world is looks so crazy
Maybe that's just me
Maybe it's just me

We all find our secrets
Patient in the shadows
Right there where we left them waiting
No matter how far we run
They run right beside us
Our demons know our names
Better than anyone

See me trapped within this construct
Beating at the locked up door and
Gripped tight deep within my fist
Is the key to all I've missed
That the pain is just the teacher
And the cage is just a myth

We all find our secrets
Patient in the shadows
Right there where we left them waiting
No matter how far we run
They run right beside us
Our demons know our names
Better than anyone

I spend oh so many hours
Building up and giving power
To the worst I can imagine lives in me
And now oh to my surprise
When the ghost as me disguised
Is the best at breaking everything
Everything, everything I dream.

You who presume you can stay dry by
Dodging all the raindrops falling
Thick, try lifting up your tongue
To the rain not just the sun
Nothing quite so simple
Was ever so much fun

We all find our secrets
Patient in the shadows
Right there where we left them waiting
No matter how far we run
They run right beside us
Our demons know our names
Better than anyone
