about

Debut EP from experimental/electronic duo, Raised by Aliens, explores topics as diverse as nature, insomnia, orgasms, astral projection, & recurring dreams.

Psytrance & World Music subtly intertwine with retro-tinged New Wave & Synthpop to bring these topics & experiences into a new, foreign reality. Perched somewhere between palpable darkness & ethereal light, this is definitely "An Odd World".

Track Name: Take Control (ft Danii Noir)
Your horizon is on fire.
Stars killed by a dawn that only draws more blood.
In a time divide to satisfy the promises you spin,
allowed to crucify to find yourself again.

(chorus)
The bluest hue surrounds you
and colours what we are,
not fading when we fall.
A breathe of air provides you
another place to go,
a way to take control.


Fearless forgiven to cry,
a faceless form beholds a calendar of eyes.
The three words are spoken, a forward motion rushing towards us.
Inside the air is thin, our hearts are caving.
Track Name: Body Rapture (ft. Danii Noir)
fall in the sea of the spaces
open walls & feel the full gravity
& the pressure rushing in & causing sores

infatuated by the fevered skin
afraid the voices that you hear are there
press down the kill-switch hoping it will end
this supernova is not over yet

exhausted voices whispering the saint
wave-lengths decay
a chest escapes a sigh
mouth is a vacuum, air evacuate
a body collapse with me on stand-by

fall on your knees
covered faces
hold your breath inside the walls
underneath isolation
a distraction from the cold

infatuated by the fevered skin
afraid the voices that you hear are there
push down the kill-switch hoping it will end
this supernova is not over yet

exhausted voices whispering the saint
wave-lengths decay
a chest escapes a sigh
mouth is a vacuum, air evacuate
a body collapse with me on stand-by
Track Name: Sleep Dep
My mind is wired & i can't think
Live in a fog stuck on repeat
A world at war, no sign of peace
I feel the guilt, yet do nothing
A growing stain hangs over me
I cry & plead, but no relief
Tell myself that it will leave
My eyes are closed
but I still can't sleep

chorus:
Thoughts are burning in my head,
making fire, & breaking my bed
The darkest night cannot save me
This is the life I lead

Ripping through me & digging deep
An emptiness too big to keep my
mind alive, just watch it bleed
I swim against an endless sea,
devoured by rivers of grief
There's sorrow killing my belief
humanity deserves to live
I'm dead tired,
but I still can't sleep

(chorus)

(repeat verse 2)

Will the sun rise to melt the snow that froze this hell?
Does your Savior know what's on my mind?
I'd destroy the world if it were mine
Track Name: Dark
Consuming like the ocean,
vacuum of emotion.
A mouth that's always open,
lips that never speak.

A deadweight that is weightless,
a place forever nameless,
shadows of the shapeless,
swallowing the sun.
