about

This EP is part of a series called ‘The Celestial Project’.
The project is a collection of audio/visual releases inspired by the beauty of our universe, and based on each of the major planets in our solar system.

Venus tells the story of a difficult relationship, taking influence from the classical roman god of love and beauty. To echo the soft, mellow feelings usually attributed to love, the music is arranged primarily using acoustic guitars and orchestral sounds.

Track Name: Decide
I'm no romeo, but I'll do my best
Look up to the stars
I'm begging to make a new start
With seas and blue skies

Regrets of the past, they haunt my head
The lingering pain
Oh, Leo don't fail me now
I need your advice

When did you decide to treat me with caution?
Decide this was all for the best
Decide to tell me the truth
To tell you the truth I need this

My hands are tied, I can do no more
You wear your cliché
I'm begging to throw it away
Like they said I would

When did you decide to treat me with caution?
Decide this was all for the best
Decide to tell me the truth
To tell you the truth I'm waiting


When did you decide to treat me with caution?
Decide this was all for the best
Decide to tell me the truth

When did you decide to treat me with caution?
Decide this is all for the best
Decide that you'd cut me off

[Don't tell me, don't tell me
That I've got to listen
Don't tell me, don't tell me
That I've got to listen
Don't tell me, don't tell me
That you've cut me off]
Track Name: Stardust
And it's Carl Sagan that said, you know, we are star stuff. But... there's a more poetic - and I think more accurate - way to say it. It's quite literally true that we are stardust, in the highest, most exalted way one can use that phrase.
Track Name: Interlude
[Instrumental]
Track Name: Step in the Right Direction
As I finish my last drink, you step to the toilet
to check your hair, I check the time
Why can't you see me?

You talk to everyone but me, what am I doing here?
When you finally get it through
A step in the right direction
A step in the right direction
Track Name: Throwing Stones
Just ignore me, I'm fine on my own
Left with only the seeds that we'd sown
Sunset floods through my room
How did this all come so soon?

As I sit here and think to myself
About what we'd been through
And how I've had the time of my life

All I do is cry out for help
Though my lips are sealed
Now what good will that do?

I miss you, I hope you know
I've missed you, is it starting to show?
Blondie, give me a chance
We could play out our brilliant dance

As I sit here and think to myself
About what we'd been through
And how I've had the time of my life

[I've been throwing stones
In this glass house
I've been throwing stones
Throwing stones
Throwing stones]

All I do is cry out for help
Though my lips are sealed
Now what good will that do?

[I've been throwing stones
In this glass house
I've been throwing stones
Throwing stones
Throwing stones]
