This album is loosely based on the 'many-worlds interpretation', an interpretation of quantum mechanics, first proposed by American physicist Hugh Everett -

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Many-worlds_interpretation

I wanted to write songs about what "Ryan Murphy B" or "Ryan Murphy C" would be doing in their parallel worlds. What do you think you are getting up to in your parallel worlds?

Do you think that when one has a 'near death' experience, one may have also actually died in a parallel world? Perhaps when one experiences déjà vu one is unconsciously experiencing the synchronisation of two or more of the parallel worlds one inhabits. I believe I once prevented my own death because I had déjà vu whilst I was dying, thus managing to accidentally 'jump' from an 'outer'-parallel world into this world and swap places with my dead self...

The experience was so shocking (believe me, it was pretty intense) that I just had to write eleven songs about it and make them available for FREE download online! I hope you like the album!

NOTE: download comes with bonus album artwork and paintings by Aisling McDonagh. Is this true!? Yes, it's very exciting stuff!

Track Name: A Clue?
Yoo-hoo,
guess I'm just going mad again.
True,
guess I'm just going mad again.
Yoo-hoo
guess I'm just going mad again.
Track Name: Sleepy
Plant a little seed and she's right on time,
with a weather change and wow! so strange!
I would stare while
the moon pulled her round,
its tidal wave sound
and I can't bear but, Sleepy won't shout
and then she would dance in the rain!

Plant a little seed and she's right on time,
plant a little seed and she's right on time,
with her arms all curved and stretched out so wide!
I can see through the trees
snow on the ground
car parked behind me
Sleepy knows where to go,
when she's so moody in so many good ways,
but I know she's brooding on so many good days.
Good days!

(Good day to you!)

Plant a little seed and she's right on time,
with a weather change and wow! so strange!
Plant a little seed and she's right on time,
with a weather change and wow! so strange!
She could feel so
left out of games,
but never complains,
like when she feels low, Sleepy won't shout
and then she would dance in the rain!

Plant a little seed and she's right on time,
plant a little seed and she's right on time,
with her arms all curved and stretched out so wide!
Sleepy lay next to me,
the smallest of sounds
and my arms wrapped around her
stomach got so big
"Oh look at that tummy!" in so many good ways.
I can hear baby on so many good days.
Good days!

(Good day to you!)
Track Name: (You Do It All) So Well
I wish that we were younger and we would live together. I'm fed up with having my nose inside some boring text books! So let's just go be young again, there's freedom in a bigger space, somewhere to whiz our arms around and force out all the laughs just so that we could be so red! Just so that we could be all red!

I'd be happy to give you a hand and help you eat all of your sweets, you've collected up so much this year, it seems you knew the richest! Tongue has turned a colour! and a bubbling inside my ears! I'd watch you speak so quickly while the room would whiz around just so that we could dance again! And we could dance again!

(ahh)
You can do it all so well!
(ahh)
You can do it all so well!

Can't come to your studio for fear of paint splats on my jeans! These colours suit your paintings,but it really isn't central to the way you have been painting. The canvas is a window, this space, you visit like a church. We look inside each other so you can have a rest! Just so you can have a rest!

You know I sit through your lectures; try to soak up all your wisdom, but I just take for granted all the things you'd often tell me. Like when you'd call your Mother just to sort through things you're thinking. She'd say: "You should eat regular meals and come down from the clouds just for a little while again! Please stay a little while again!"

(ahh)
You can do it all so well!
(ahh)
You can do it all so well!
Track Name: Children, Behave!
I can't tell
I can't tell
you mcdonagh
you my darling

Found 10p in my pocket went to spend in on some sweets. I can't tell you my darling because you wouldn't have some sweets!

I can't tell
I can't tell
you my mcdonagh
you my darling

Found 10p in my pocket went to spend it on some sweets. Can't tell you my darling because you don't want any of those sweets!

I can't tell
I can't tell
you my mcdonagh
you my darling

I'm going your way!
I'm going your way!
Track Name: New Watch
(instrumental)
Track Name: Maddadam
Do what's right I won't
do what's right I don't seem to care
I don't seem to care I won't
do what's right I won't
do what's right I don't seem to care
I will do what I want!

(I'm) Speak my mind I will
(on) speak my mind I will
(my own!) do what I want
I will do what I want!

(Give) I'll take some time and
(me) you'll take some time off
(some space!) so that we can breathe!
So that we can breathe!

(You) I'm doing fine please
(will) don't waste my time you don't
(be alone!) seem to care you just
seem to be inside
(You) your own mind I won't
(will) give my time you don't
(be alone!) seem to care you just
do what you want!

Well it's different now,
we're now not the same
and when Maddadam changed it all
we became...
Track Name: Nine Stories High
Your truth is out there
you've just got to find it for yourself.
You know it's out there
somewhere, but you know everything,
you know, that it's inside.

I'm nine stories high!
Nine stories high!
Nine stories high!

Your truth is out there somewhere,
you've got to find it for yourself.
You know it's out there,
you've got to, to find it for yourself,
'cause it's in sight!

I'm nine stories high!
Nine stories high!
Nine stories high!
Track Name: Schizo-highway (feat. HamHock & Kelly Krystal)
You're the last thing on my mind.
I've been busy at the doctors.
Where'd it go? I spend my time
making art just for myself.

Where did it go, where'd it go?
Where did it go, where'd it go?
Where did it go, where'd it go?
Where did it go, where'd it go?
Schizophrenic highway!

A busy journal breaks you!
Hiding tables doesn't help!
Now 2am is silly!
I just called to spill my feelings!

(Oh, here we go!)

Where did it go, where'd it go?
Where did it go, where'd it go?
Where did it go, where'd it go?
Where did it go, where'd it go?
Schizophrenic highway!
Track Name: Clown/s
I get worried there's a little naughty nettle plant a'waving and he says: "come on and take a little grab at all your notebooks". I need to keep my notebooks, to write upon a page: 'There's plenty of that where you came from!'. Push on my cuticles, I'm thinking of you.

I'm thinking of you,
I'm thinking of you.

Blue bus yawns in the reflections as my mouth is hanging open. I feel sickly, bumpy feelings. Keep in thinking that it's raining, but it's just grey spots on the window, dirty big blue buses cruising in reflections as I'm open, breathing open, open window, thinking of you.

I'm thinking of you,
I'm thinking of you,
I'm thinking of you.
Track Name: Congratulations Painting!
Fill your brain imaging your space, congratulations painting! Like a diamond in the sky!

People can be mean, but if you know just what to say: ignore unfriendly people if you know just what to say you'll get the best out of your day!

The best out of your day!
The best out of your day!
Track Name: Where's Becky?
Where did Becky go?

Drown in the water in Anglesey.
I had to witness my own death, it was exciting!
An uninviting parallel world!

They dragged me out into the house.
I asked the question: "Where's the host?".
She's not around here...
You didn't drown here, no no.

'Cause I'm bizarre and probably drowning!
Yes I'm bizarre and probably drowning!

Where did Becky go?
