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

At night, we begin
Counting sheep and tracing comets
Chasing sunrise and sleep
Building a life inside a dream
I reach for your hand
But I'm far too codependent now
To stand on my own

Oh, Niagara
Fall on me
Run to the distant sea
Roll over all of me
You taste ephemeral
I felt untouchable
Save for you
Save for you

We end at the start
Drawing circles with our fingers
Idle time, passing by
Taking with it our relief
I reach for your hand
But I'm far too codependent now
To breathe when alone

Oh, Niagara
Fall on me
Run to the distant sea
Roll over all of me
You taste ephemeral
I felt untouchable
Save for you
Save for you

If the sky is canvas, how is the air so cold?
If our world is ageless, why do we fear getting old?
If there is an after, why make us wait?
If this is the be all, then I want to end all
And find it, under the tide

Oh, Niagara
Fall for me
Wrap me in harmony
Float with the melody
Oh, with the chemical
I am untouchable
Save for you
Save for you
