Kick & Rise

from Kick & Rise by ALEX ST JOAN

/
  • SPECIAL EDITION - EP with book "Kick & Rise"

    ALEX ST JOAN was born next to a flooded valley in drought-prone Australia and raised on Greek myths and disco. Her debut EP "Kick & Rise" (Zellephan Records) features 4 distinctive songs that discard the posturing of youth and lay down what it is to be an adult; vulnerable and fully accountable.

    To celebrate this first release, ALEX ST JOAN has created a special edition book containing her own stories and artwork to accompany each song. Drawing from the likes of the Brothers Grimm but with a modern twist, each story and illustration mirrors the themes central to the songs and provides a window into ALEX ST JOAN's creative world. The book is signed by the author and comes with a CD (as well as an automatic download of the EP).

lyrics

Black, the black has blossomed
A crack an ocean wide
The pilot has abandoned
Her palace in the sky
And I - I wear your crown
Like a drowning man keeps
Reaching out for the one
Dragging him down

I love, I love the darkness
The silence in the dell
The swelling of the morning
And all the tales you tell
But even in sunlight
I cannot see myself
Reflected in them very well

My form shifts and swells

If your love, love, is endless
If your confidence crosses divides
If your joy is my joy is your joy is my joy
Let me kick, kick, kick - and rise

For those of us who are breathing
The air we draw into our lungs
Is also always leaving
The breath it is always completing
Just as it’s begun
And yet it returns

If your love, love, is endless
If your confidence crosses divides
If your joy is my joy is your joy is my joy
Let me kick, kick, kick - and rise
