    There is a fragile balance to Astronauts, etc. — an attempt to reconcile contradiction. Harmonious conflict rolls through mastermind Anthony Ferraro's uniquely soulful compositions with a struggling duality innate in each note. A classically trained pianist with French composer Hector Berlioz tattooed on his arm, Ferraro approaches his songwriting with both a disregard for his 15 years of focused lessons and a respect for the skill those studies have afforded him.

    Sadie is the debut EP from the Oakland-based artist. The 12" vinyl release is limited to 500 copies. Free download included with every order.

Track Name: Sadie
sadie, where are you running
you gave me something that i can't swallow

i wish i could float
but every time i fall, i bruise a few bones

sadie, it's no use running
you're causing trouble, too much trouble

i'm going to find you

i wish i could float
but every time i fall, i bruise a few bones
Track Name: Up for Grabs
i know that i'm a pain in the ass
but i heard that your heart is up for grabs
your voice is like a special effect
i melt every time it tells me "that's what you get"

i see you in a carnival light
when's the last time we went on a teenage ride
a soft current has got hold of my hands
they can go anywhere if they move slow like glass

take me, don't leave me, don't release me
Track Name: Fuss
when you're flying low
and your head's in tow
and you don't know how you'll stand up
my slender love
won't be enough
to lift you out of that muck

you're so trusting
with your head, with your heart
well don't trust me
there's no room in my yard;
someone took a ton of salt
and covered it from wall to wall

i'm just hungry
for a trip or a hunt
and you're hungry
for a room with a hearth
i can't leave my orbit now
weightless @ the speed of sound

i used to bend
to any shape
now i've grown brittle, any weight could do me in
if i could swim
just drift around
then i might soften up again

i'm impatient
caught a glimpse at a shape
it's time wasted
in a haze, in a state
traveling by floating rope
i stopped counting coordinates long ago

what will i fuss about now
Track Name: Gravity
don't think about what you've done
put it away like a guilty gun
i'm good at being reassured
and throwing my body in headfirst

mimicking what i've seen
all of the ways to stay in between
hanging out on the fence
deciding which way my head should lean

i've got a lot to learn, i guess

visit me sometime else
you need time to collect yourself
it's hard without gravity
the pieces don't fit together very well
i think about changing states
what is it keeps you solid anyway
running into that wall
it's better to be always changing shape

i've got a lot to learn, i guess
Track Name: Care to Lose
one of these days i'll have a better way
of getting myself out of an anxious state
laid in two like a crazy man
when's the last time you made any sense
when the question was put to you

i won't think that through
you are all that i care to lose

one of these days i'll find another place
to bury my head and think of nothing when i have had as much as i can take
i've been in talks, i don't say too much
i think a lot, i can't loosen up
you are fastened tightly on me, but i control my body

i won't think that through
you are all that i care to lose
Track Name: Who's in My Way to Your Heart
fog on the mark
who's in my way to you heart
don't play that part
tell me who's in my way to your heart

you like to keep appointments with me
that's not what i want
i want to make your harmony break
see you fall apart

honest to god
tell me who's in my way to your heart
i won't be alarmed
tell me who's in my way to your heart

you need a shift
i promise to give you another shade
forget all the haze
you don't have to breathe up in outer space

who's in my way to your heart
