The overview effect is a cognitive shift in awareness reported by some astronauts and cosmonauts during spaceflight, often while viewing the Earth from orbit or from the lunar surface. -wikipedia

lyrics

nothing pressing to do today
think I'll roll a spliff and drift away
set up camp in my inner space
think on nothing at all

I'm gonna tuck these blues away
save em up for a sunny day
let the shadows on the wall
battle the grey dissolve

tomorrow brings
a little everything

I'm getting gone, I'm on my way
stepping out on a taller plane
all these tumbles from grace
don't mean nothing at all

I never been to outer space
hear the view there is 'A-OK'
you can see it all
the cracks in the wall

the crush of the dream
little everything

Hi there. You can sign up for my mailing list here: eepurl.com/bcruFT

I post a song once a week on Tuesdays. If I've just finished a song I'll record a rough demo and put it up. Sometimes its live recordings or weird electro collages. I also make a video most weeks using public domain footage. Check it out!

Thanks for taking the time to check out my music!

Jon
