We've grown apart a long while ago Now we're both strangers to our goals I watch you burn the bridge between us Disconnected we might grow Better beings on our own For the air we made was empty Which our itching skin confirms And the soil we plowed got poisoned But now you can spoil your own Burn the bridge, disconnect me I will clean this mess alone I don't mind the gap between us I don't mind the gap it all Chop wood, build fire Burn bridge, cut wire Pay debt, then grow Chop wood, build fire Burn bridge, cut wire Pay debt, then grow
Standing in the rain It’s not even close to how you feel It’s the closest that I’ll get Standing in the rain on my cold, bare feet So talk, tell me all about the weather of your mind About the reasons that you find, all the falacies and lies So I can tell you: ‘We are not even close to fine’ CHORUS I know we’ve been through this many times I know we’ll be doing this for a long, long while Until we know how to dry your skin until it’s done Making mistakes is a way to learn Until you find the lie Until we make you see the sun Make your mistakes my friend Making order out of random drops is fine As long you see it’s your abstract not mine In this multiverse of truths and lies I’ll sing my breath away Until our worlds collide some day When we’ll find shelter away from the rain Drying our bones by the flame But they will make us suffer till that day Oh, we’re not even close to safe in this rain CHORUS
Now that the rain filled the air I am holding in my breath My lungs, filled for some day As the cold streams run down my face Our town is swepted away As the rain falls down Hold close the wife and kids Let your roof float on Make sure to look while you pray For when your house hits the dry land on the way Our feet on the ground Rebuilding our town It grows brick by brck Under new roofs We’ll wait for the rain Stuck on our roofs, sick of the flood Rain falls down Counting the stars, still getting lost Rain falls down We’ll make sure to look, while we pray Rain falls down Up on our roofs we’ll wait for the day Now that the rain has cleared I am Breathing out old air Floating around we’re scouting the flood Searching for land To rebuild our once great Town
So, this story ends No more elements No more clues we might gather So let’s shatter the remains they tried to protect As we step back in our lives These nervous buzzing hives We’ll forget the picture we have just seen This dream in which we’ve been In which we’ve seem to have grown Miraculous bone structured, brave, heroic souls But the anaesthetic is fading out So rip the skin off from my nose Let my blood fill all the holes So I can drown again


Afello's music debut has a dark, glitchy and restless atmosphere which blend nicely with the subject matter of destruction and reconstruction. The multilayered dance pop tracks on his debut are all distilled from compositions on piano, where synthesizers add texture while basses drone the lower regions.
