lyrics

growing up, a boy amongst men.
thinking aloud, dark dreams among thoughts.
"write it down, it'll help!" she said.
step quiet, don't wake what can't be fought.

and this boy amongst men became a wolf among sheep.
and this wolf amongst sheep became a butterfly amongst the deceased.
and one day we looked back at that boy's old seat.
but a god amongst mortals cannot be seen by the people on the streets.

yeah, we were neighbours,
we were neighbours for so long.

time and money, life's tooth and claw.
and those slow swinging saws,
swing ever closer to your door.
it's not about what happens anymore.

and this boy amongst men became a wolf among sheep.
and this wolf amongst sheep became a butterfly amongst the deceased.
and one day we looked back at that boy's old seat.
but a god amongst mortals cannot be seen by the people on the streets.

yeah, we were neighbours,
we were neighbours for so long.

Aleksander Brisbane, Australia

AGE // 18

I choose to use my middle name Aleksander for my music. I usually play all the instruments on the track + sing + produce (record, mix and master). Creative control is key. I also love anyone who will take the time and listen.
