about

Almost four years after their debut-album ‘Temporarily Colourblind’, Eyemèr returns with a new EP called ‘Good Mourning To You’. The record focuses on themes of mental health and non-binary gender identity.

The title ‘Good Mourning To You’ is a play on words. It refers to the grieving process that Eyemèr went through when they lost someone to suicide. When someone dies in such a way, feelings of guilt often haunt those who are left behind. In addition, Eyemèr experienced a process similar to ‘mourning’ when someone in their family could no longer be truly present due to a mental illness. With the saying ‘Good Mourning To You’, Eyemèr wants to uplift those who are currently processing a loss.

For many years already, Eyemèr has been working to break the stigma surrounding mental health using melancholic indie sounds and activist lyrics. Since 2018, which marks the year the artist came out of the closet as non-binary (not man or woman), they have also started writing about their genderqueerness. Eyemèr hopes to spotlight both the mental health theme and non-binary theme and normalize these.

In order to be able to finance this new record, Eyemèr launched a crowdfunding campaign through which fans and patrons could invest in the new record for a period of thirty days. The campaign was a success and even surpassed the goal amount of 3.500€.

Track Name: On My Own
call me lonely
call me fragile and a bore
if that’s what describes me
I don’t mind your tone
people are trying
to destroy our world
don’t arrest me
it’s not my fault

my best days I’ve spent on my own

death is all around me
but I refuse to let it touch my bones
we all hope that
we’ll live and never get old

my best days I’ve spent on my own
my best days I’ve spent on my own

on my own

you are not alone
if your best days are spent on your own
if your friends say you should go out more
Track Name: Soil
hide
we used to intertwine when our sky was broken
can we cry
wrap our arms around our problems
just realise
your arms are branches some birds have built a home in
and I
I will feed them and let you use my soil

I’ve watched you grow in dirty stained soil
overclouded places deprived of sun
you’ve watched me drown in floods of water
drying out, my body couldn’t take the load

You’ll hold me tight but I won’t mind
I’m still blossoming, you have the sun in your eyes
and you’ve been staring at your feet
just so our eyes wouldn’t meet
you’ve been staring at your feet
just so our eyes wouldn’t meet
now we just-

hide
don't intertwine when our sky is broken
can we cry
wrap our arms around our problems
just realise
your arms are branches some birds have built a home in
and I
I will feed them and let you use my soil

just realise
your arms are branches
some birds have built a home in
just realise
your arms are branches
some birds have built a home in
and I
I will feed them
and let you use my soil
Track Name: Inner Voices
mentally sick, you overshare
you're never really quick but you always care
when no one can see, they don't believe
gotta have some proof physically

it's a shame
we all waste so much time
comparing differences,
let’s build a bridge
instead of walls
it’s a shame
we all waste so much time
and space ruminating
can we outrun our shadows

life is simply passing before your eyes
when you get a grip, here comes a sacrifice
like a bad movie you keep staring
but waiting for the ending to arrive

use your voices, we all are our voices
these inner voices, they were not our choices
but use your voices, we all are our voices
voices, voices

we play hide and seek
these voices and me
will they not find
me where I hide
I hope so
Track Name: Survival Of The Fittest
this place is not your place
you’ve been trying to fit
in a box that is too thin
hate builds up
when you keep to yourself
so please
just yell for once

you sighed
‘last night
I dreamt of leaving the world behind
but now
I’m not ready to’

if others knew what you are
they would declare you mad
but that’s what we all are here

you sighed
‘last night
I dreamt of leaving the world behind
but now
I’m not ready to’
you sighed
‘last night
my planet asked my to return
but now
I’m not ready to’
if survival of the fittest is really true
then how did we evolve to this

you sighed
‘last night
‘I dreamt of leaving the world behind’
Track Name: Bird, You Can Fly
so the time has come
for your soul to finally belong
stop the facade
though the world is not ready for you and I

you're starting your life
from this moment now
bird you can fly, bird you fly
you're breaking out
out of your shell today

kid, you'll be fine
you're not a girl, you're not a boy
nor am I
