Cosmic Starfish

Cosmic Starfish

BandEDMSinger/Songwriter

a relaxed amalgam of heartfelt folk tunes and gentle electronic music

Biography

Cosmic Starfish is made up of two elements: The acoustic songs of Jeffrey Randall Snyder and the electronic production of Adrien75. Together, they have created a fresh musical aesthetic that blends the psychedelic elements of IDM with the warm approachability of folk.

Live, CS is just Jeffrey and an iPod fabrication of Adrien75. Since all the music (except for the vocals and acoustic guitar) sounds synthetic, no one seems to mind the backing band being a little, white box.

Lyrics

Fish in a Bowl

Written By: Jeffrey Randall Snyder

Swim, swim
Fish in a bowl
Round, round
Who knows the places we'll go?

Hope comes packaged
Shiny lights way up high
Reach out, hold on
Everyone has dreams

What else is there but to try?

This world so big
Infinite paths to choose
Nothing's holding onto
The time we lose

What else is there but to try?

Blue Tuesday

Written By: Jeffrey Randall Snyder

Blue Tuesday, ricochet
I'm gonna' tell the world today
I'm leaving
Breathing

All that was between me and her was a hookah
And all that she could say was, "Superfly Snuka!"
I'm leaving
Breathing

You're such a super sight
And I will follow
And dance like Jell-o
And we won't mind if we slow down

Flat on my back in a black cul-de-sac
I don't know where I've been, but I ain't going back
I'm living
Forgiving

The blue light is on and so is my mind
Where once I was bored, where once I was blind
I'm living
Forgiving

You're such a super sight
And I will follow
And dance like Jell-O
And we won't mind if we slow down

What's Real

Written By: Jeffrey Randall Snyder

I lie awake in my bed tonight
So far there is no sleep in site

The world is turning
And I am too
The world is turning
And I'm thinking of you

Can we go out in the field tonight
I want to feel what's real tonight

Our lives are changing
Without an ending
Without forgetting
That this world will go on

Can I feel what's real?
Can I feel what's real?
