We're All Mad Here

about

I moved away from San Francisco in 2014 to take a job in the South Bay. The job was (is!) fantastic, but moving back to my sprawling suburban hometown San Jose did a number on my health and happiness. I wrote a song while I was feeling homesick for the weird, wacky, walkable(!!!) city I've grown to love.

Inspired by artists like bo en and Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, I wanted to make a song that was, like San Francisco, delightful, magical, and just a teensy bit strange. I enlisted the master of making weird sounds into bangers, Hello Ghxst, to help me craft this vision.

Please enjoy "We're All Mad Here"!

lyrics

Heart shaped apple tarts
Four and twenty pence
We're all mad here
And it all makes perfect sense
Cock shaped macarons
Plated for the guests
We're all mad here
And it all makes perfect sense

Heart shaped apple tarts
Four and twenty pence
We're all mad here
And it all makes perfect sense
Cock shaped macarons
Plated for the guests
We're all mad here
And it all makes perfect sense

It's not my hometown,
But I'm homesick all the same
'Cause every time I leave
It's like I'm making a mistake

The fog rolls in
Like old caterpillar's smoke
I'm not sure if anyone misses me
But I'm sure that this is my home

Through the looking glass
A golden gate
I'm on the wrong side of it now
But my heart remained

All unbirthdays are
A cause to celebrate
And when I come back,
I’m bringing all the cake, singing

Heart shaped apple tarts
Four and twenty pence
We're all mad here
And it all makes perfect sense
Cock shaped macarons
Plated for the guests
We're all mad here
And it all makes perfect sense

Last night I dreamt about Frank Chu
He was holding a sign
9 billion galaxies
12 trillion timelines

Which one is the one where I finally
End up in a life
Where I'm blocks from Dolores Park
In the city I call mine?

Last night I dreamt about Frank Chu
He was holding a sign
9 billion galaxies
12 trillion timelines

Which one is the one where I finally
End up in a life
Where I'm blocks from Dolores Park
In the city I call mine?

And it all makes perfect sense
And it all makes perfect sense
