about

Galapaghost Austin, Texas

Hey there, I'm Casey and I recorded this entire album with the help of a friend of mine in Italy. I have no label, manager or band so we worked extremely hard to produce this album ourselves, so I really hope you enjoy it!

All of my albums are also available for free streaming on Soundcloud, Youtube and Spotify. You can also purchase all my albums on Bandcamp, Amazon, iTunes, etc.

Track Name: Mazes In The Sky
Leaping
Falling
Waiting
Disconnecting

And everything we see and everything we feel drops
Into an endless space that time can't erase it stops
It's the only thing we have
The only thing left to grasp
And the only thing we have to lose

In a thousand ways
I heard you say
You cannot be blamed
For your mistakes
And now I'm out of touch
And out of time

And everything we see and everything we feel drops
Into an endless space that time can't erase it stops
It's the only thing we have
The only thing left to grasp
And the only thing left to lose
Track Name: Science Of Lovers
Every whisper under your breath
Magnifies in my head
Every mystery has a history
Of exposing itself

Suppose I lie and say I love you
Suppose you do the same
Is it better not to know
Or is it better to be alone

Every silent moment I've spent
Picking myself apart
Every lifeless photograph is
Tearing me apart

Suppose I lie and say I love you
Suppose you do the same
Is it better not to know
Or is it better to be alone
Track Name: Salt Lake City
Salt Lake City
On the fourth of July
The differences between you and I
Your eyes are cold
As the silence grows
and everything I can't control
And it terrifies me

Who do I gotta be
And how do I gotta speak
And what do I gotta compromise
To make it all alright

Every little lie
And every single sleepless night
And all that you try to hide
And so you just get high
And tell me to forget that time
We made love on the floor
And you said that it was everything you wanted and more

How do I gotta touch
And how do I gotta feel
And what do I gotta sacrifice
I'd give you anything

But who do I gotta be
And how do I gotta speak
And how do I gotta eat
And how do I gotta breathe

To make you love me
Track Name: Mister Mediocrity
I wish I could scream like Kurt Cobain
Or maybe just invent a genre like him
I wish I could sing
Like Paul Simon can sing
Or maybe just name every chord that I play

But am I ever gonna be able to create anything that's great?

I wish I had the strength that John Grant has
To reinvent yourself and still belong
And I wish I had the balls Homme has
To play so wrong yet it feels so right

But am I ever gonna be able to create anything that's great?

Well I'm not sure what I want
And I'm not sure what I need
But I wish that I just could believe in anything
But all I wanna know
Yeah all I wanna know
Is should I let go
Should I just let go

Or am I ever gonna be able to create anything that's great?
Track Name: I Never Arrived
Young
Moving fast
Like a balloon
I'll see you real soon
Just one more time

Surprise
I never arrived
Surprise
I thought I could fly

Time
Standing still
Can I be who I used to?

Surprise
I never arrived
Surprise
I thought I could fly
Track Name: Vitamin D
So I guess we are here
For another year
How does that make you feel?
Well I guess it's not that bad
When they told us that we have to fucking forget our plans

But I don't want you to see
The darkness within me
But the silence keeps me warm
And the sky is never blue
Cause the sun has got the flu
But thank god I got you

My only vitamin D
My only vitamin D
My only source of vitamin D

Reading every book
And watching every film
Alone here in my room
I just wish that I knew
Which skills I should use
To make a friend or two

But I don't want you to see
The darkness within me
But the silence keeps me warm
And the sky is never blue
Cause the sun has got the flu
But thank god I got you

My only vitamin D
My only vitamin D
My only source of vitamin D
Track Name: The Greatest Roommate
Well I can't keep pretending I give a shit
About the moral obligation that I'm living with
To tell you you look very thin
When all I see is really flabby skin

And I can't keep pretending that I don't mind
Throwing up in my mouth every single time
I walk past your room and it smells like a dead dog getting really high

And I can't keep pretending that it's so cool
To blast Celine Dion and dance like a fool
In military boots screaming every word right above my room

And I can't keep overemphasizing
How your story was so inspiring
Cause I know it didn't really happen
And that you were really never there

Cause you were living in this wasteland of your dreams
And terrorizing everything that I just cleaned
And showering maybe once a week

But I've come to congratulate you
Because you made it to the top

Of my shit list.
Track Name: The Secrets Our Body Keeps
The secrets that our body keeps
The masquerade of our lives
Come here closer to the light
Come and claim your prize

When you say it has disappeared
Never to be found
Follow it down

So I follow it down
Give me love and fear
And everything you hold dear
Give me hope and trust
Beauty and lust
Track Name: Somewhere
Alone
Do it on your own
Don't waste time
Just survive
Crawl
Covering your eyes
Don't you look
Just fly

Somewhere
You'll arrive
Somewhere
The sun will rise

End
Pretend it's not the end
Can't give in Deng
Food and water's on its way
Shelter too
Soon

Somewhere
You'll arrive
Somewhere
The sun will rise

Homes shake and scream
Bones shattering
Track Name: Bloom
Giving it all away on this day
Giving it all away on this day
And hoping that I made something great
So I can finally sleep well at night

With all the pressure that I feel
And all the fiction that I wish was real

Cause I don't think I can take much more
Mediocrity won't soar
And all the success surrounding me
I can't seem to ignore
And all the opportunities knocking on everyone else's door
But I'm happy for you

Everything around me
And everyone around me
Is in bloom

Running through the park
Cooking all night long
Getting drunk to your sweet sweet songs
Your with me in the dark with your sweet sweet songs
But I'm happy because

Everything around me
And everyone around me
Is in bloom
Track Name: Goodbye (My Visa Arrived)
All my documents are in order
And the final fees have been sorted
The miracle I've waited for
Is knocking now on my door
The warden says it's your day
For me to remove all your chains

And the prison gates of boredom are finally open

To all the friends I've made during my stay
I'm throwing a party
Meet me in my brain
We'll celebrate the memories and all the good times we had
Like all the times we used to talk
And laugh until we couldn't stop

And you made me cry when we said goodbye
Got my visa stamped
Ain't no turnin' back
Track Name: Our Place
Surely going to be
A nice place in the shade
For us to play our complicated games
Now movement's everything
Don't matter what you say
Retracing all your footprints in the grass

Some will try to provide
Some will tell you only lies
But the only measure of a good life
Is what we leave behind when we die

You and I
You and I
