    Thomas Truax is a unique performer, and already justly appreciated as a treasure live. Sonic Dreamer may just have the wit, invention and accessibility to be the album that garners him that same recognition as a recording artist." -Drowned In Sound

lyrics

Balancing on a bouncing wire
While juggling bowling pins on fire
Touch the tears of the town crier
He swears his mother was a liar
He swears his mother was a liar
As trusty as a fortune teller

Marry me or fall away
Umbrella break the sunlight spray
Lets sleep beneath the canopy
Of a shady summer tree

Awakened by a broken dream
Things aren't always what they seem

chorus:
Aren't we part of the same world?
I would hold you if you were cold

The strongbox has gone orange with rust
I know no longer what to trust
Descending like a wingless bird
I feel invisible, unheard

I'd hoped you'd lend a helping hand
Or maybe just a kindly word

Aren't we part of the same world?
I would hold you if you were cold

about

Thomas Truax London, UK

"Thomas Truax crafts rich, poetically evocative songs about insects, trees, technology, and a lifelong obsession with all things lunar. He travels the world performing with his "band" of bizarre self-made instruments including a motorized drum machine made with bike wheels and a souped-up Gramophone called 'The Hornicator', as well as his venerable guitar 'Hank'.
