(lyrics by e. san vocals by e. torrini) ghosts of progress haunt me daily meaning vanishes words they fail me you have left me lost in your mind dive in, who knows what you might find somewhere someone feels this way too sometimes it’s easier just to stay blue someday somehow you’ll land but for now understand you’ll be adrift until then life in loop mode focus reframe need to crack it clarity regained maybe it’s too much for us to see now can't wait until when what we’ve lost is refound somewhere someone feels this way too sometimes it’s easier just to stay blue and I’ll wait right here while your clouds clear but I’ll be… adrift until then

(lyrics and vocals by e. torrini) dusted off, packed and done close to home all I’ve known my father whistling doubt keeps whispering when we lay there side by side watching stars shine bright like keyholes in the sky I think of all you said you rustle up the stardust in my head space rolls out its carpet this is how it started all those years have led to this no more whispering no more whispering

(lyrics by e. san, vocals by e. torrini) a wounded sky a swirl of smoke beneath the cold I reawoke I thought I felt you’d never left but in my heart’s an emptiness the hours crawl we’ll meet again defeat another day til then the slowest clock as vinyl plays and how you spoke those final days I’m missing you my heart retreats I found the cold beneath the heat can’t tell if I will weather this for me, you’ll be forever missed I’m missing you my heart retreats I found the cold beneath the heat can’t tell if I will weather this for me, you will be forever missed

(lyrics by e. san, vocals by e. torrini) one day you’ll know why I had to go flew through the fear until I disappeared sped through the lights into the dark won’t stop til I hit my mark escaped your fool’s paradise evaporate to dust and ice no plan no map at this rate we’ll all collapse

(lyrics by e. san, vocals by e. torrini) countless ellipses your absence eclipses all the light from my sight it’s now 2 years and one thing remains clear it’s the darkest night red shift, old light I’ll be your satellite transmission’s distorted I’m lost in your orbit floating broadcasts reflections so vast the radio’s broken this winter won’t last red shift, old light I’ll be your satellite transmission’s distorted I’m lost in your orbit trying to get back on the ground just not the same without you around pinwheels, spirals eighty-five thousand miles I’ll see you again but who knows when one thing is for certain I’ll keep falling back towards you

(lyrics by e. san, vocals by e. torrini) don’t recognize myself today talk in circles in the greyest grey and all the thoughts live in a maze up here, where I belong I trundle cross the harsh terrain the darkest thoughts you’ll entertain a force that I cannot sustain I’m here, but something’s wrong the darkest day the longest night I should evolve but still I fight on the run in a state of flight I’m calming down my intent is to be free what keeps me warm are memories now they’re closing in on me things should have changed by now I’ll be younger in 50 years trying to find what panic fears Phobos and Deimos interfered and change was everything when you looked up the stars all fell it was hard for me to tell it’s another day on Mars as well this quiet is deafening the darkest day the longest night I should evolve but still I fight on the run in a state of flight I’m calming down my intent was to be free what keeps me warm are memories now they’re closing in on me things should have changed by now I felt myself disintegrate figured it out but much too late took all that I loved that day and trashed the rest of it I happily detached the past but equilibrium won’t last in a capsule of poison gas this solitude is desolate the darkest day the longest night I should evolve but still I fight on the run in a state of flight I’m calming down my intent was to be free what keeps me warm are memories now they’re closing in on me things should have changed by now

Epilogue 06:03

(lyrics and vocals by e. torrini) in a dream I am carried by sun rays through the dark always the fool you hand me your heart life is a flicker of light on a screen humble as a hope I bow to thee pale blue, pale blue it’s over too soon pale blue, pale blue

about

Kid Koala’s Music To Draw To: Satellite is an uncharted musical journey: an expansive work of ambient electronic soundscapes and chilling ballads in collaboration with Icelandic artist Emilíana Torrini. This inaugural volume in the Music To Draw To series is Kid Koala's first non-sample-based record, instead using an array of synthesizers, keys, guitars, strings, turntables, and inventive recording techniques to portray this heartrending musical story about a couple separated by a mission to Mars. The output is over 72 atmospheric minutes of stardust settling like fresh snow over Kid Koala’s trove of turntables and sentiment.
