about

“Voyager” is a personal recount from lead singer Matthew Rogers. Travelling back in time to speak to his teenage self, Rogers tries to put into words the things he wished to hear, as well as the dark feelings he held during his closeted youth. The album may appear to be about Rogers' sexuality, however, the intention is to give voice to the heavy feeling of harbouring a secret for a long period of time. Throughout the time-travelling journey of “Voyager”, Rogers is trying to extend his message to listeners out there who might feel lost, lonely, or misunderstood. While the story of “Voyager” has many cathartic elements to it, the album is meant to take the listener on a beautiful musical journey from start to finish.

Fleece's psychedelic-rock and jazz influences still remain in the sounds they expand on in “Voyager”. Throughout the album, Fleece experiments by use of synthesis, auxiliary percussion, strings, flutes, and vocal harmonies. Most songs were brought to the table by Rogers, and later arranged with bassist Gabe Miller and drummer Ethan Soil who helped bring each song to life.

The recording process for “Voyager” took place from February to June with recording engineer Patrick McDowall.

Track Name: Under the Light
Under the light
Time goes so slowly
In your world

Over the night
Don't feel so lonely
In your world

Can you hear me please?
Is it hard to be?
Rhythm speaks to thee
But you'll never hear me still

Under the light
Time goes so slowly
In your world

Over the night
Don't feel so lonely
In your world

Can you hear me please?
Even when I hardly breath?
Words are hard for me
And the rhythm speaks to thee
But you'll never hear me still

Don't you wait for me

Under the light
Time goes so slowly
In your world

Over the night
Don't feel so lonely
In your world
Track Name: On My Mind
When you were younger I was always on your mind
The thought of future let the tears roll off your eyes

Feel it in my blood, in my eyes, in my dreams
Still it's on my mind
Wondering about all the lives I won't lead
Take it off my mind

If I could change the world I'd probably run and hide
But then again there's so much I would realize

Feel it in my blood, in my eyes, in my dreams
Still it's on my mind
Wondering about all the lives I won't lead
Take it off my mind

(Lying all the time, still it's on my mind)
When you were younger I was always on your mind
But then again there's so much I would realize
Track Name: What You've Done
Deep in "dark-end forest"
Stairs will lead you to a realm
Deep in "dark-end forest"
Take a ride into the well

And you don't know what you've done
(What you've done)
Oh, what you

You could take or leave it, but don't hesitate
You're so curious
With all of these choices, which do I make?
How can I be sure

And you don't know what you've done
(What you've done)
Oh what you've done

(Guitar solo)

And you don't know what you've done
(What you've done)
You don't know what you've done
(What you've done)
You don't know what you've done
(What you've done)
You don't know what you've done
Track Name: Riverside
Why this sudden wave upon the night
I should be alright
But seven years I wondered
Wondered how I could change my ways

All along the riverside

Did they ever know my hidden self
Running around underneath
Did I ever reach a hand to them
Swimming above the rising sea
To a place so beautiful and bare
So afraid to dip my feet
Streams that run in several dimensions
Shallow enough, how could I see?

Why don't I go inside your mind for a while
Everything haunts you but in time you'll arrive

All along the riverside

Dark and murky waves they splash the ground
Colours bright underneath
But I'll wait till morning 'gain because
Risking my world's not that easy

Why don't I go inside your mind for a while
Everything haunts you but in time you'll arrive

All along the riverside

(Synth and scat shout chorus)

Why don't I go inside your
For a while
Go in (for a while)
For a while
Go in (for a while)
For a while
Go in (for a while)
For a while
Track Name: Fried Eggs
Fried eggs, the simple things
Fried eggs, when everything was great

Nothing's in my way

No one ever followed through
I'm drifting now
Lonely days are nothing new
I can't stop now
Oh, where do you come from?
And where do you go?

When we're alone
Nothing's in my way
Time goes on
Some people make mistakes in this world

(Away from all)

Where do you come from
Where do you go
I can't feel it
Where do you go

Where do you come from
Where do you go
I can't feel it

Us on the road, there's nothing in this world
In the snow, there's nothing in this world
Time goes on, there's nothing in this world
Can deny us away from all
Track Name: Seasons
Play the melody
(La la, la la)
Place where I feel free
(La la, la la)
Will it always be?
(La la, la la)

Who are you, it's what you do and what you say
Things I love, will they still remain?
Seasons change, and so have I
Does it mean I'm changing all the time?

Music's still in me
(La la, la la)
Will it always be?
(La la, la la)

Who are you, it's what you do and what you say
Things I love, will they still remain?
Seasons change, and so have I
(What do it mean?)
Does it mean I'm changing all the time?

(Who are you?)
Who are you, it's what you do and what you say
Things I love, will they still remain?
(Seasons change)
Seasons change, and so have I
(What does it mean?)
Does it mean I'm changing all the time?
Track Name: You Are You
When you can't see above an argument
Don't feel all the defeat

When you can't see above the heart of it
You are you, I am me

(Ahh, Ooo)

If you'll be so above the argument
You are you
Track Name: Fix It Together
Oh, you're dreaming of something new
So what makes your life true?

Oh, what makes it all so true?
Try seeing colours from the same point of view
With or without you I should try to pull through
So what makes your life true?

Oh, you're dreaming of something new
So what makes your life true?

Hey you, fix it together now (Go)
Pick up the pieces, and make it all

Oh, you're dreaming of something new
Oh what makes your life true?
Make your life true
(Fix it up)

Hey you, fix it together now (Go)
Pick up the pieces, and make your life true
(Fix it up)

Hey you, fix it together now (Go)
Pick up the pieces, and make it all know
You can't do nothing without (Go)
Fix it together now
