lyrics

When above your bed the mobile starts to spin
Then you know your midnight friends are calling in

As the ceiling silently slides open wide
And you begin to ascend on the rising tide

And all the bustle and the worries of the day
Like rocket booster stages burn then fall away

As the mobile takes you on board for a play
As the mobile takes you on board for a play

The stars they pull the horses around in carriages
As the horses smoke cigars and plan their marriages

And it's a Cape Canaveral carnival
a Busby Berkeley musical
As Pete the Cat pursues his missing tail

And the planet down below breathes a blue sigh
You're just a floater on the surface of its eye

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'.
