about

Born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma in 2012, Jumpship Astronaut began as an experiment in melding the danceable sounds of electronic music with guitar-driven indie rock, resulting in a stellar combination bolstered by polished pop sensibilities and a penchant for strong melodies. In their first year performing together, Ryan Bryant (vocals/guitar), Chris Bourland (synth), Scott Dunn (bass/synth), and Kris Davis (drums) established a singular musical voice, drawing from a wealth of divergent influences and looking to the future with their unique brand of synth-driven rock.

Track Name: Alive
I can take you somewhere new
Somewhere you've never thought of
I can take you somewhere new
Somewhere you've only dreamed of

Dying is saved for the living
Dying is safer than being alive

I know that you're hiding something
Something that you don't want to find
I know that you're hiding something
Something that you don't want to find
Because it's easier that way
Because it's easier that way lately
Because it's easier that way
It's easier that way

Dying is saved for the living
Dying is safer than being alive
Track Name: Change
I'll sing to you until you're sick of me
From the dark, clandestinely
Mend the bones, cover up the lies
Who can know when we'll start our lives?

"Wait long enough," it's what I tell myself
But if I wait too long, you won't feel the same
It's been too long, collapsed on itself
I don't want things to change, I need them to change

Fight the love, needs to be real
You've got to bleed before you heal
I'm a masochist and I'm full of doubt
In every face I'll seek you out

"Wait long enough," it's what I tell myself
But if I wait too long, you won't feel the same
It's been too long, collapsed on itself
I don't want things to change, I need them to change
Track Name: Too Much Thought
Nothing I say
Can ever be worth it if it's the same
In every way
And you're out the door
I'm trying to stay
Awake but I'm drifting off again
Maybe today
I'll face myself

Exploding into a million pieces in front of me
I've come to expect enough of this insanity

Step into the light so I'll see you
Look me in the eyes this time
How will it work?
Don't say too much or I'll know you
Never gave it too much thought
It's enough to hurt

Every day
I wake up with less of myself intact
Breaking away
From the only one
That kept me safe
From the world I built myself
To push you away
When I know I'm wrong

Exploding into a million pieces in front of me
I've come to expect enough of this insanity

Step into the light so I'll see you
Look me in the eyes this time
How will it work?
Don't say too much or I'll know you
Never gave it too much thought
It's enough to hurt
Track Name: Fascination
Killing myself to find
A way back into your mind

Build up walls to satisfy yourself
Break them down to remember what you felt
The way you're looking at me doesn't mean a thing
The way you're looking at me doesn't mean a thing
Nothing, nothing at all

You won't say this feels right
Deny yourself every time
Killing myself to find
A way back into your mind

Backing down, step away from the truth
No matter what you say I know it's still in you
The way I'm looking at you doesn't mean a thing
The way I'm looking at you doesn't mean a thing
Nothing, nothing at all

Yeah, you're a major fascination
I'm going to find a way I swear
And it's a dream of degradation
I'm going to find a way

You won't say this feels right
Deny yourself every time
Killing myself to find
A way back into your mind

Yeah, you're a major fascination
I'm going to find a way I swear
And it's a dream of degradation
I'm going to find a way
Track Name: Jeane
Tell the truth now
It only makes it easier
To find a way out
From the misery we made
In the morning
When the sun is shining bright
It's a warning
Against fighting with the night

I know too well to go slow
Behind your eyes is all I want to find

Tell the truth now
It only makes it easier
To find a way out
From the misery we made
In the morning
When the sun is burning bright
It's a warning
Against fighting with the night

I know too well to go slow
Behind your eyes is all I want to find

All I want to

I know too well to go slow
Behind your eyes is all I want to find
Track Name: Our Best Days
The ways we stay away from life
Open windows and sunlight
The times you try to take a stand
We'll see if we expand

I'm tired of trying to stay away
From photographs of our best days
I tell myself to see the best
In the sadness I express
