about

Fly By Night and Niagara are a two part suite illustrating the two poles of bipolar disorder: mania and depression. From feeling on top of the world, to feeling impossibly anxious, to anger and fragility, Fly By Night takes you through the magical and the terrifying parts of mania - only to land underneath the surface of a frozen Niagara Falls, in the middle of a brutal Ontario winter, waiting for the melt.

lyrics

Oh, Mama, I cannot be alone with this
I'm making bad decisions with a kiss

If you get me out alive, I'll sell you what I bought and sold
Dreams of ordinary white and twenty karat gold

I'm not scared of my reflection in the mirror
But I act like hell on wheels
And I try to give myself a chance to spin it
But you don't know how this feels
Oh, the lightning strikes through every single synapse
And I know that I'm alive
But the crash is coming for me in a minute
And I just want another chance to live it
Shining in the light
Flying through the night

Oh, Papa, I cannot be alone with this
I'm making bad decisions with my fists

If you get me out alive, I'll tell you what you need to hear
I've been working on the cure so you don't need to fear

I'm not scared of my reflection in the mirror
But I act like hell on wheels
And if you want a ride then you can have it
Overwhelming what you feel
Oh, the lightning strikes through every single synapse
And I know that I'm alive

Shining in the light
I might be all right
