‘Open Up The Sky’ “This song was written about loving someone, who hasn’t ever considered loving you back. Someone who doesn’t acknowledge you, the way you want them to. They, in other words, see right past you. It’s about seeing them with someone else who doesn’t treat them as well as you could, and saying how they should open up their minds, think outside the box, look beyond the sky, and consider you instead”.
‘More than good friends’ “This song is about when I was friends with a boy and I had feelings for him that were more than just friendship. The feelings are mutual but there was uncertainty about taking things forward”.
‘Not Ready’ “Inspiration for this song came from the pressure teens have to decide a career path and make formal choices about their futures. Being indecisive about the choices available and being unsure that choices made will be available to them”.
‘Electro Circus’ “This song is about all the “freaks” in the universe. It’s about how the misfits have a special thing which makes them amazing. I am quite obviously and definitely a misfit and have been named “freak” and other bad things which made me feel like I don’t belong. I mention, in the song, how people like me are “toxic” to all the normal people and we shock. This song expresses my way of embracing that. In this song I, metaphorically, put on an original, shocking and dazzling “electro circus” with all of the other “freaks” where my feelings explode in electronic music and I show the world, which is the audience of the circus, what I’m really made of.
