about

"Actual Size" is about the painting "Actual Size" by Edward Rusche, who is referenced in the first verse. The purpose of the song is to question if art can exist purely for it's own apparent beauty or if art needs to have a deeper meaning.

lyrics

Lost in thought
LACMA
Dazed by a 60s Ruscha
Old dreams, we’re starring into space

Counting down
The ticking clock
Holding our breath till lift off
In a blink, we’re floating in the stars

Far away from home
Where the path is dark
You’re losing sight of who you are
But its alright with me
In a burst of light
A flash in the sky
Yeah, I lost my sense of time
As we drift into the storm
Drift into the storm

Float on down
Now back to earth
Searching for lessons to learn
Or maybe theres nothing beyond the frame

Like a rose
It is what it is
A potent, blunt spirit
Its a beauty thats stands on its own

Far away from home
Where the path is dark
You’re losing sight of who you are
But its alright with me
In a burst of light
A flash in the sky
Yeah, I lost my sense of time
As we drift into the storm
Drift into the storm

Far away from home
Where the path is dark
You’re losing sight of who you are
But its alright with me
In a burst of light
A flash in the sky
Yeah, I lost my sense of time
As we drift into the storm
Drift into the storm
