The poem ‘Guard up guard down’ is about not having feelings in romantic endeavors. It’s about wanting to feel something, but being unable to even though your partner might seem perfect on paper.
‘Fly on the wall’ is a poem about being afraid of the public eye. About thinking that you’re watched all the time and making your decisions based on this understanding.
The poem ‘What’ is about being confused and unsure of what you seek. How an on-paper perfect relationship doesn’t work, but a toxic one does.
‘Remiss’ is about being anxious of not having a comfort-zone. About constantly being in situations you are not comfortable with, which leads to self-reflection and hopefully closure in the end.
If someone you adore keeps leaving you small breadcrumbs, and you follow blindly it can get toxic. That’s what ‘Breadcrumb’ is about. Not realizing the bad situation and simply following suit.
‘Symmetrical’ is about falling into toxic relationships instead of getting out in time and enjoying what is symmetrical. Not boring, but calm and it fits exactly what you need.
‘Cactus’ is a theme I’ve touched in songs for many years. The idea of being a cactus is based on being all alone in the middle of nowhere with pointy ends pushing anything that comes close away. In ‘Cactus’, flowers get close to the cactus and are not afraid of getting close to it. This creates huge confusion, the cactus not needing much water, which sparks the latter idea that rice does not need water if someone can get close to the cactus. Anything is possible.
‘Outlook’ is pretty self-explanatory. Basically it’s about being in a relationship and thinking about the now and the future. How you’re very happy about things right now, but at the same time vary about what comes next, because you convince yourself it cannot continue this way forever, but can it?
‘Untitled I’ is a piece about sending wrong signals on purpose even though you shouldn’t. How the propper thing to do is what you would like to do, but are unable to. How you get drawn into doing the wrong thing even though it isn’t fair for any party.
