I can't describe how amazing it feels to be finally having this record out there
I've been living inside of this sonic world for the past 18 months
on one hand it became my personal love letter to solitude and finding myself through the creative process, but on the other it's been made of these long nights spent with friends, getting high, having these great, whole night long conversations, questioning the current cultural values and realizing how temporary everything really is
I truly hope the record can resonate with you

Track Name: Somewhere Quiet
‘where to begin?’
asked the weeping heart
happily the world tastes better
with my April lungs
new life to try out
when no one’s around
and the time slows down
as green covered the ground

i don’t get any of these talks
but i’ll hear you better
whileturning the city off
springtime equals solitude
a desolation friend
and the world feels better through my April heart

far from intellectualising,
i couldn’t stop
comparing myself to you
seeking and hiding
into frames dividing
i thought i could give you more
by letting myself go
and stay somewhere quiet

it’s been so quiet in here
so quiet
light a fire
fight a liar
liar! quiet!
(I couldn't stop comparing myself to you)
so quiet, quiet, quiet!

lyrics by Jakub Zytecki
Track Name: Light a Fire (fight a liar)
i find myself again
looking for words
trying to reinvent the beautiful
you've said the language built this world
our world

so i'm on a quest for love that's sleeping
in your streets and on your roads
and we're picking up the letters
one after the other

and here you come again
you look for words
you try to recognize the true and the beautiful
it's the same old song we're both on

and we're tired of the courtesy this city's built on
and I'm tired of showing you someone I'm not
tired of the irony used to weaponize my bad day

and we're tired of the courtesy this city's built on
and I'm tired of showing you someone I'm not
this entire social catastrophe makes me
wanna find you in the streets and dance it all out

lyrics by Jakub Zytecki
Track Name: Bonsai (with Paulina Przybysz)
I dance
I eat joy
Everyday I cry
I'm closer to you know what
I swim
In a lake of emotions
I give birth
To the melodies and words with sweet devotion

I've got so much
but just to say
So little
To physically bring it to your place

how you doin'
are you ready
for us to come
we are wiser now
we can do it
whit no fear
with total trust

I dream
same time I live
I sing
just to mix my dreams with
what reality brings
Track Name: Grow Up
i couldn’t plan my life
there’s too much to do tonight
let’s talk it through tomorrow

the city’s making us alive
it makes us scared of
growing up
scared of the same purpose

greed made legal
with monopolies of violent act
all in the name of common comfort

mastering the game named
‘sorry you’re not ‘cos i’m
the one who’s right’
take me away
from that
away from that

uncertainty keeps holding on
i might never understand
but it’s better than
giving you nothing

sincerity keeps growing stronger
i might never fully get it
but it feels better
giving you something

we’ll scream it out
we’ll paint it over your cars and walls
even if it takes the lifetime

your story is yours to own
it is an open door
feels good to be alive
to be alive
to be alive
no I can't grow up
