about

This EP has been a work in progress for quite some time now - I'm pretty content (and relieved) that it's actually time to share it.

Maya Yianni is a SE London-based artist that adopts a DIY approach to her work, citing digital as distraction.

Track Name: It Happened
You've been gone for far too long now
I don't make sense
Bitter, blinded, absent minded
False good intent

Couldn't I ask you how you got through it alone?
Couldn't I ask you how you made it,
On your own

Lucid dreams of laser eyes
That I cannot shut
Burning through in perfect patterns
I couldn't stop

It happened
And I was there
Made the same mistake
Without a care
The same as I always do
I hold you responsible

There's a reason for my meaning
Self-indescript
Bleeding into every season
Like morning mist

It happened
And I was there
Made the same mistake
Without a care
The same as I always do
I hold you responsible
I see through your every move
The glass is unbreakable
Track Name: You + I
I walk slowly
You take quick steps
Why are you running away?

Sensing distance
With your interests
When I'm right next to me
How rude

I think you've made yourself clear now
I know where I stand
I know where I stand
As if you've seen a light through fear now
I know where I am
But where are you?

When did we fall out of line?
The person that I knew was just fine

I throw punches
You fall backwards
Why are we here again?
Oh my love
I've seen enough now

And when did we fall out of line?
A person with concern could read my mind
But when did we fall out of line?
The young man that I knew was just fine
Track Name: Sleepwalker
Oh sleepwalker
They are awake
Wild daydreamer
Planning your escape

They all had the answer
Long before you
Under lock and key
In a file you don't keep

Treading water
Better left to dead
Like an anchor
Sinking to the sand

They all float on salty
Swells of focus
They could never see
All the fun they could've had

You won't be seeing me for long
Drifting, always in between
Whats right
Whats wrong?

Oh sleepwalker
I can see the end but
Comatosis
Cannot be your friend

Beautiful and plastic
They all have it
But you can see through
All misery it brings

You won't be seeing me for long
Drifting, always in between
Whats right
Whats wrong?
Track Name: Torn Apart
And where was I
When you told her of your fall form grace?
Don't you know she's just a pretty face?
I hope you know that
She isn't kind like me
In time you'll see
And where were you
As the sun was setting on my skin
I could see your ship was sailing in
I left alone despite your presence there
you couldn't care

Oh wait a moment
The dark turns into the day
Oh wait a moment
The strong minute starts to play

I'm torn apart
Again and again
Won't you remind me
Why I let you in?

The talking minds
And the silent mouths have said it all
In the pile of books and paneled walls
There is an answer
I try to but I
Never find

Oh wait a moment
The dark turns into the day
Oh wait a moment
The strong minute starts to play

I'm torn apart
Again and again
Won't you remind me
Why I let you in?

I'm torn apart
Again and again
Won't you remind me
Why I let you in?
