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

On My Mind 02:19
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

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

Riverside 06:05
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

Fried Eggs 03:49
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

Seasons 03:19
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?

You Are You 01:53
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
10.
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

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.
