I am chained to a rock in the night The eagle is eager to fight me My liver is open and warm He’ll be eating and picking til’ morn’ So the trees nod their heads, they agreed You will hunt for the good and the bad seeds I shall no longer carry the dust Cause I’ll pray for a man I can trust I’m always careful Are you a fragile fallen leaf ? Then I’ll be careful ’Cus I can’t carry you Words endure, I’ve seen it, flesh does not So I’ll look for the man on the cross As he’s hanging and facing our death I inhale his words in my breath While I’m digging the hole for my bed All my fears come to live in my head I am chasing words that’ll set me free Let me melt into eternity I’m always careful Are you a fragile fallen leaf? Then I’ll be careful ’Cus I can’t carry you Floating ’round like a lost astronaut In the spheres in between the chaos No wind no lifeline to God Have you found him? Will he ever save us? I’m always careful Are you a fragile fallen leaf ? Then I’ll be careful ’Cus I can’t carry you

about

LOST ASTRONAUT is based on a childhood nightmare that transformed the shadows of the night into aliens and turned sleep into involuntary space travel. At the turn of millennium people revelled in conspiracy theories and doomsday speculations. In the schoolyard, kids exchanged pulp fiction about distant galaxies and at the local library a young girl consumed science fiction novels, one after the other.

Daydreams flickered through the children’s imaginations, morphing into nightmares about being selected for a space mission — one that goes fatally wrong, flinging the astronauts out into the infinite universe.

The five songs of the EP explore the fundamental, existential anxiety and angst caused by the feeling of being a “lost astronaut” in a world that at times can feel incomprehensible and meaningless.
