Unbroken Thread

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

The morning is calling
Your body is stalling
The silence is daunting
But the day demands you play your hand
And make an entrance

This ride is over but you do not know it yet
This nightmare has closure but you can’t let go of it
Look over your shoulder and see the unbroken thread
You are only ever one step away from the clear
Because you see, my dear

There’s less bad than good here

This strife is over but you do not know it yet
This nightmare has closure but you can’t let go of it
Look over your shoulder and see the unbroken thread
All of the things that you see as your failings are made up
All the reasons you give for negating yourself, you have made up
You are only ever one step from giving the shame up, dear
Behind the grey it’s clear

There’s less bad than good here

This fight is over so you can let go of it
A new life draws closer so you should grab hold of it
Look over your shoulder and see the unbroken thread

You are the sailor come home, free
Riding in on the driftwood
You are only just beginning to see
What it is that you’ve misunderstood
That there’s less bad than good here
There’s less bad than good
