about

'Laundry After Midnight', the highly anticipated debut album by Australian artist Lee Safar. is now available!

"This album is a journey and is designed to be experienced that way by anyone listening to it. I know that more and more artists are tending towards releasing singles, but honestly, there is so much this album has to say...it's intended to be experienced as a body of work. Listening to a single will give you a snapshot of the journey...but listening to the whole album in context...THAT will unlock a sea of mystery and discovery" ~ Lee Safar

What the critics are saying about 'Laundry After Midnight'

"This albumn is nothing short of AMAZING!... What you've accomplished with it is nothing short of miraculous."

"This is an incredibly stunning and inspiring album."

"Friggin' "Burning Feathers" almost brought me to tears. REALLY elegant tune"

"I'm Here speaks for itself great remix of the original. Good luck with finishing up the album, I think you made a cracker"

"The beautiful vocals are very solid throughout. The arrangements are simply divine. This is a very sophisticated and highly listenable album."

" I still can't get over Crave the Night. My mouth dropped open when I first heard it and I'm still astounded by how great it is. It's like the band Garbage and Madonna from her Justify My Love phase had a hot, sexy love child!"

"'This Is Love' just reminds me of a hot summers day around a pool drinking with all your mates having a dance and jumping in the pool. Takes me back to pool parties in Ibiza."

"We Jump, Shackles, Wanting More -- pristine, clear, confident. Sheer power. I see these tracks shooting straight to Top 40"

Track Name: Shackles (Ft. evolutionary theory)
Shackles |
©2012 Lee Safar and Luke Emrose

Hold on honey
The day's not quite done
There's a few more shackles to keep you from
Sailing towards your sun

It's such a sobering moment
Such a precious breathe in time
When you realise why they've arrived
You've searched a thousand oceans
For a million reasons why
They love tearing at you and scratching at your green eyes

So you beat yourself again
For being part of a game
You never wanted to play
You never wanted to run
You never wanted to hold
Just go

So hold on honey
The day's not quite done
There's a few more shackles to keep you from
Sailing towards your sun

Every-time, like a thief dressed in disguise
You think it's different this time
Till you see straight through their lies

So you beat yourself again
For being part of a game
You never wanted to play
You never wanted to run
You never wanted to hold
Just go

Hold on honey
The days not quite done
There's a few more shackles to keep you from
Sailing towards your sun

Hold on honey (you have been here before)
The day's not quite done (and the pain has left you raw)
There's a few more shackles (you have burnt yourself on the shackles)
Sailing towards your sun (and faded away)

Hold on honey (You can hold on to this day)
The day's not quite done (Or you can find another way)
There's a few more shackles (To release yourself from the shackles)
Sailing towards your sun (And sail away)
Track Name: Wanting More (Ft. evolutionary theory)
Wanting More |
©2012 Lee Safar and Luke Emrose

Take That Away
Take That Away

Come follow
I see you standing there prowling with your eyes
I feel the rush
That burning heat pulsing down your spine

But take that away
Never show me what you're hungry for
I will leave your heart on the floor
Addicted to this maze as we explore
This game we play leaves us forever wanting more

Come follow me
To a darkness so beautiful and pure

Once we've tasted the rush
We'll leave this endless need for wanting more

Take that away
Never show me what you're hungry for
I will leave your heart on the floor
Addicted to this maze as we explore
This game we play leaves us forever wanting more

This game we play leaves us forever wanting more....MORE

Never show me what you're hungry for
I will leave your heart on the floor
Addicted to this maze as we explore
This game we play leaves us forever wanting more

Take that away
Track Name: Serenity Now (Ft. evolutionary theory)

Serenity
Serenity Now

Thank you for coming
Even though you don't know you're here
I've brought you to show you my truth
Though the words may not be clear
You are dying and these hands of mine wont bring you back to life
You are dying in the eyes of a child to whom you gave life

Serenity Now | Serenity Now | Serenity Now
Serenity Now | Serenity Now | Serenity Now
Serenity Now | Serenity Now | Serenity Now
Serenity Now | Serenity Now | Serenity Now

Finally in a realm where my soul beats for nothing but love
The damage we've done to my mind must end as I give up this fight
I surrender to that hate and blackened love I feel for you
And I release me from the lies, pity and pain that protect me from you

Serenity Now | Serenity Now | Serenity Now
Serenity Now | Serenity Now | Serenity Now
Serenity Now
Serenity Now

Please grant me the serenity to accept
The things I cannot change
And the courage to change the things that I can
And the wisdom
Oh the wisdom to see
The difference between he and I

He may have given me life
But I am what keeps me here
He may have given me life
But I am what keeps me here

Serenity Now | Serenity Now | Serenity Now

Track Name: This Is Love (Ft. evolutionary theory)
This Is Love |
©2012 Lee Safar and Luke Emrose

I close my eyes
I wonder where I'll go
Then I smile and see where I've been
I need to be right here right now
In the perfection of this moment

This love love love | Love love love | Love Oh this is love
This love love love | Love love love | Love Oh this is love

I free fall to heaven
A party in the clouds
Yeah there's a rainbow just for me
Everything I am
Oh everything I dreamed
It's here
It's me
It's this moment

This love love love | Love love love | Love Oh this is love
This love love love | Love love love | Love Oh this is love

Oh this is love

I close my eyes
I wonder where I'll go
Then I smile and see where I've been
I need to be right here right now
In the perfection of this moment

I inhale it in
I inhale it in
I inhale it in
And we get drunk on this emotion

This love love love | This love love love

This love love love | Love love love | Love Oh this is love
This love love love | Love love love | Love Oh this is love

This love love love | Love love love | Love Oh this is love
This love love love | Love love love | Love Oh this is love
Track Name: Burning Feathers
Burning Feathers |
©2012 Lee Safar and Luke Emrose

Burn the incense once more
Fill the room with smoke
Try to hide from me
Inhale it as though it were you
Breathe it in and feel the doubt
Consume you

But I will never leave you alone
I will never leave you alone
To catch your burning feathers
To catch your burning feathers...alone

I see you standing with your scars
Your open wounds and tired heart
Release them
I've known the pain of letting go
And the promises of tomorrow
You keep making yourself

But I will never leave you alone
I will never leave you alone
To catch your burning feathers
To catch your burning feathers...alone

And you scream
As the thunder starts to roar
Waiting for the moment when the rainbow's finally yours
Oh I know, yes I know, I know

That I will never leave you alone
I will never leave you alone
To catch your burning feathers
To catch your burning feathers...alone
To catch your burning feathers
To catch your burning feathers...alone

To catch your burning feathers
Track Name: Illusions (Ft. Shane Cross)

See the signs that I sent

We're all connected baby
We're all connected
We're all connected
Separation is the illusion
We're all connected baby
We're all connected
We're all connected
Separation is the illusion

We might not see each other
But you know that I'm there
Just look beyond the illusions
And see the signs that I send

We're all connected
We're all connected baby
We're all connected
Separation is the illusion
We're all connected
We're all connected
We're all connected
Separation is the illusion

But you know that I'm there

We might not see each other
But you know that I'm there
Just look beyond the illusions
You'll see the signs that I send

We might not see each other
But you know that I'm there
Just look beyond the illusions
And you'll see the signs that I send

ابحث علي تلاقيني
Ibhath Aalaye tla-eni (Look for me and you'll find me)
افتح عيونك و انظر بروحك
Iftah Aayunuk wnzor be roohuk (Open your eyes and look with your soul)
حب نفسك و المس الشمس
Hobi nufsuk wilmith il shams (Love yourself and touch the sun)

We might not see each other
But you know that I'm there
We might not see each other
But you know that I'm there
Track Name: Crave The Night
Crave The Night |
©2012 Lee Safar and Steven St Thomas

Here in this dark cave
Illuminated with our light
I feel you for the first time
Since our last life
We crave from our core
Your scent, my taste
Our insatiable need for me
Our hunger, Our desire
Leaves us craving more and more and more

Let me feel you, taste me
As we drink from each others souls

Every time I feel you my soul moans for more
And I crave the night, I crave the night, I crave the night

Here in this dark cave
Illuminated with our light
You become me, I become you
We flood this cave with burning desire
Open to this love
A pain so beautiful and divine
I yearn for you inside my soul

Feed me, taste me, as we drink from each others souls

Every time I feel you my soul moans for more
And I crave the night, I crave the night, I crave the night
crave the night, I crave the night, I crave the night, I crave the night

Swim inside my soul | Cum inside my mind | We'll get lost beneath a deep deep sea | I will watch your eyes as you get lost in me

Now that we've found each other in a new life
We fuse our souls and ignite this night
We don't need to hide
We lit this fire
This craving we have feeds our burning desires
We crave the night | We crave the night | We crave the night | We crave the night | We crave the night

Every time I feel you my soul crave moans for more
Let me feel you taste my soul and you'll feel me tasting yours

I crave the night | You crave the night | We crave the night | We crave the night
We Crave the night | We crave the night | We crave the night | We crave the night | We Crave The Night| I crave the night | You crave the night | We crave the night | We crave the night | We crave the night | We crave the night | We crave the night | We crave the night | We crave the night.....
Track Name: Run Run Run (Ft. evolutionary theory)
Run Run Run |
©2012 Lee Safar and Luke Emrose

I see you!

There's a shadow following me
I can see behind it's lies
An entity haunting me
Flying in the wild
A knowing I can't show you
A secret deep inside
That moment when you'll see me
Behind your disguise

There's another meaning in the words coming from your world
A truth buried deeper still
Like a sword that flirts with hurt
An angel in the distance see's the 'you and I'
There's a hand that brought you to me but why I can't decide

I gotta run run run run run run run run run run run run run
I gotta run run run run run run run run run run run run run
I gotta run run run run run run run run run run run run run
I gotta run run run run run run run run run run run run run

There's a reason that you found me hiding in these woods
Buried in this forest away from the world
No-one here can see me dancing with the sun
You got a glimpse inside of me
Now there's nothing left to do but...

Run run run run run run run run run run run run run
I gotta run run run run run run run run run run run run run
I gotta run run run run run run run run run run run run run
I gotta run run run run run run run run run run run run run run run run run

I see you've made it inside my mind
I feel you creeping in with your lies
I'm not that fool you've been longing to find
You'll only come as close as I decide

I gotta run run run run run run run run run run run run run (You're in my mind)
I gotta run run run run run run run run run run run run run (You're in my thoughts)
I gotta run run run run run run run run run run run run run (You're in this forest now)
I gotta run run run run run run run run run run run run run (And I have to run)

I gotta run run run run run run run run run run run run run (Away from you)
I gotta run run run run run run run run run run run run run (No longer my fairy-tale)
I gotta run run run run run run run run run run run run run (It's time, to run)
I gotta run run run run run run run run run run run run run (Away from you)
Track Name: We Jump (Ft. evolutionary theory)
We Jump |
©2012 Lee Safar and Luke Emrose

Have you ever had a moment
When you didn't know why you were here
You were headed somewhere
And you thought the road would be clear

You were left wondering wonder wonder where this goes
Looking for the opening opening opening to the next door

Standing on the edge preparing to fly
Never looking down my friend
Our new home is the sky

We Jump | We Jump | We Jump | We Jump | We Jump
(Feet on the ground) We Jump

(Jump into the night)
We Jump
Though we don't know the way
We Jump
We close our eyes and breath in the light
And jump into the night

Have you ever danced with the moonlight and felt the sun caress your soul
Free as birds in the sunshine
We turn into angels as we let go

No longer wondering wondering wondering
Where this goes
Not looking for the opening opening opening
To the next door

Standing on the edge
Preparing to fly
Never looking down my friend
Our new home is the sky

We Jump beyond everything
We Jump to our sweetest dreams
We Jump beyond the fears that keep our feet on the ground
We Jump to a brighter day
We Jump though we don't know the way
We Jump we close our eyes and breath in the light and jump into the night

Your old life only haunts you when you keep it alive in your mind
Come closer | Breathe deeper | And take yourself to the edge
...and JUMP!

We Jump

Jump beyond everything
Jump to your sweetest dreams
Jump beyond the fears that keep your feet on the ground (We Jump)
Jump to your brightest days
Jump though you don't know the way
Jump you'll close your eyes and breath in the light and jump into the night

Jump into the night
Jump into the night

I'm Here (evolutionary theory Remix) |
©2012 Lee Safar and Luke Emrose

I put my faith in you
I let you lead me blindly to the darkness
Searching for the light to find you
Only to find that you left me there to die

Now I breath again
Now I dream again
I'm here I'm Here
Now I breath again
Now I dream again
I'm Here I'm Here

I stood from here and I watched you
As you welcomed in the fear I denied you
Making all the choices for a life
That wasn't yours and you would never let me mine

Now I breath again
Now I dream again
I'm here I'm Here
Now I breath again
Now I dream again
I'm Here I'm Here

I'm Here | I'm Here | I'm Here | I'm Here
I'M HERE!

I put my faith in you
I let you lead me blindly to the darkness
Searching for the light to find you
Only to find that you left me there to die

Now I breath again
Now I dream again
I'm here I'm Here
Now I breath again
Now I dream again
I'm Here I'm Here

I'm Here | I'm Here | I'm Here | I'm Here
Track Name: Fallen (Ft. Shane Cross) (Radio Edit)
©2013 Lee Safar

I'm done
Worn down
This road is weathered
No more destruction can be done
You're that place in my heart
That I can't visit anymore
Just the thought of that journey
Exhausts me to the core
I've fallen down

I could pretend
To be in love
With who you are
Not what you've done
But it's now clear in my mind
That you're that pill that I would take
To right these wrongs
To feel some happiness again

I've fallen down
So far down
That the darkness of this place
Wont let me leave if I'm found
And it's like heroine in my veins
Being back here again
Knowing if I surrender
This pain will own my end

I've fallen down
So far down
That the darkness of this place
Wont let me leave if I'm found
And it's like heroine in my veins
Being back here again
Knowing if I surrender
This pain will own my end

Fallen down

I've fallen down
So far down
That the darkness of this place
Wont let me leave if I'm found
And it's like heroine in my veins
Being back here again
Knowing if I surrender
This pain will own my end

"But there's one piece that's missing and that's what we call the Higgs.
And that's what we're going to talk about today and see if this works." (CERN)

"I would like to say congratulations to all of you. This is magnificent
It is a real achievement and it's wonderful" (CERN)

"Clearly theorists and experimentalists are as one in joining together
to applaud this wonderful event which has been presented to us.
The machine is wonderful. I'm just overwhelmed by the quality of the
machine and the quality of the analysis and the labour, intense
labour, which has gone into getting this result. I'm just overwhelmed." (CERN)

"I think we should stress it is a global effort, it was a global effort, and it's a
global success. That's number one. The results today are only possible because of the extraordinary performance of the accelerators including the infrastructure. The experiments and the great computing that was very well presented by both speakers. I think this is was key or is key to the success. We have a discovery. We should state it. We have a discovery. We have observed a new particle consistent with a Higgs-Boson.
Ha. Which one? That remains open. It's a historic milestone today. But we are only at the beginning. Now a lot of work is ahead of us. It is a milestone. I think we can all be proud, all be happy, but it's at the beginning. And I think also, it has global implications for the future and it comes at the right time. And I think we can be very very optimistic. Thank you" (CERN)

"We are beginning to feel the atmosphere as we go in here. The vehicle has just reported via tones that it has started guided entry." (NASA)

"But there's one piece that missing and that's what we call the Higgs." (CERN)

"And its starting towards bank reversal. First Bank reversal complete. We are seeing peak acceleration. We have passed through peak heating and key acceleration. It is reporting that we are seeing GE's on the order of 11 to 12 Earth G's." (NASA)

"Flight GSA. GDSA flight go. We are processing data from Odyssey. We have a connection but we actually do not have any data yet." (NASA Team sigh's)

'And range control are used -1.2 Km's'. (NASA)

'The EL Team is reporting that we are, ah, that things look pretty good at the end of range control. We have control to be converged. We are going about 2.4 and an altitude of 17km's south' (NASA)

"TOUCHDOWN CONFIRMED! (NASA Team ROARS!!!!!) We're safe on Mars. Time to see where Curiosity will take us!" (NASA)

"FANTASTIC!" (NASA)

"Keep watching guys, keep watching the screen. There's more stuff. Any minute now." (NASA)

"And, ah, many many people went many days without sleep. Including me but I sleep last night so that was a first." (CERN)

"Don't worry it's going to start! Sound Is Coming!" (CERN)
