about

In a polarized world, which way do we swing? Or can we just Tilt?

Tilt is an easy acoustic track with a chill vibe and a contemplative message. It's all about getting a new perspective - in our heads & hearts. As we live through the toughest times in modern history, we oscillate between fear, outrage, indifference, hate, rebellion and conformity. The ground constantly shifts. Reality and truth seem optional.

Stuck in the middle of this, it's time to take stock. Find our balance. And... Tilt.

lyrics

Tilt
Get a new slant
An angle you really want
Tilt
Calculate the arc
Between super Kent and man Clark
Tilt
For the midnight sun
Enough light to find the one
Tilt
As you bolt off the blocks
What is real if not the clocks?

It’s the axis it’s the spin
Call it, heads or tails?
Which fate is yours to win?
Fight it, teeth and nails

Tilt
Get the right shot
No filter no share just the thought
Tilt
Are you slow, are you smart?
In the middle you’ll find your heart
Tilt
Your head at me
I love the shape of you, I see
Tilt
The spine of this song
Till it can write no wrong

Tilt, oh won’t you try it?
Tilt, oh don’t you see it?
Tilt, make time to say it
Tilt, go on and fly…

It’s the axis it’s the spin
Call it, heads or tails?
Which fate is yours to win?
Fight it, teeth and nails

Tilt
Get the right shot
No filter no share just the thought
Tilt
Your head at me
I love the shape of you, I see
Tilt
The spine of this song
Till it can write no wrong.
