I'm trapped, I'm trapped inside a brain Since nothing was the same It feels like it's insane It feeds on pain
2.
Feeling my mind getting lost but I’m stuck inside my brain Conscience declines and I’m losing my mind inside the drain Imagine that reality is lost inside the mind What is real can never feel while not perceiving in real time Can’t feel my limbs, looking up but I’m staring down at me Light turns to grim but I’m powered by my lucidity Imagine that reality is lost inside the mind What is real can never feel while not perceiving in real time

Pretty Rings 03:36
There’s lots of space out in space between us, the sun, the moon and Mars I’m looking up and growing angel wings There’s lots of trash in our trash that fills up our earth, look to the stars Let’s make it into treasure, imagine Earth with rings So sing loud, the world will know that Beauty will always live It shines bright above our home Reflecting life we give There’s lots of rings in the outer regions, but we don’t get a few I want to reach out but it’s never near There’s lots of cosmic debris that’s making them shine, so let’s shine too And when the ships lock on us, they’ll see that we're here So sing loud, the world will know that Beauty will always live It shines bright above our home Reflecting life we give So sing loud, the world will know that Beauty will always live It shines bright above our home Reflecting life we give There’s lots of space out in space between us, the sun, the moon and Mars I’m looking up and growing angel wings There’s lots of trash in our trash that fills up our earth, look to the stars Let’s make it into treasure, imagine Earth with rings So sing loud, the world will know that Beauty will always live It shines bright above our home Reflecting extinction

Andromeda 03:40
It’s pullin’ and it’s pullin’, can ya feel gravity? It’s pullin’ and it’s pullin’, can ya feel chemistry? It’s pullin’ and it’s pullin’, it attracts you and me It’s pullin’ us to one another relatively And from your point of view I am attracted to you And from my point of view you are attracted to me The forces of the bonds of chemicals is the key And once our spiral arms have touched, the brighter we’ll be And isn’t it a beautiful collision? As I’m in your Milky Way Do you feel closer? Stars all over till we’re slower Doin’ physics till the mornin’ I get to feel inside of all your solar systems As the cosmos intertwines It’s so attractive and expansive, supermassive Doin’ physics till the mornin’ And we’re not stoppin’, no we’re not! And we’re not stoppin’ till the forces stop! Physics isn’t just one time Physics won’t end till the end of time And isn’t it a beautiful collision? As I’m in your Milky Way Do you feel closer? Stars all over till we’re slower Doin’ physics till the mornin’ I get to feel inside of all your solar systems As the cosmos intertwines It’s so attractive and expansive, supermassive Doin’ physics till the mornin’

Beatle Juice 03:51
Talk to you eight days a week And you don’t let me down a day in the life Something in the way you move Made me say I got to get you into my life I want to hold your hand and I feel fine It’s always getting better all the time Your seashell eyes My love can’t hide Your seashell eyes Let me take you down, I’m going to Let it be as real love comes together in my life It won’t be long, here comes the sun today Shine, the weather’s fine, I see the inner light The word is love is all and love is new Because it’s beautiful and so are you Your seashell eyes My love can’t hide Your seashell eyes Tomorrow never knows But I’ll follow the sun I’ll send, across the universe All my loving from me… to you Your seashell eyes My love can’t hide Your seashell eyes

I have never known the things I knew before The physics went astray, I looked up to the floor I had never flown to what the future brings And nothing was a thing except perhaps the fire Fire… Fire… Two big bugged eyes I fall so high New world swirls envelop around me As I fall and sink I’m melding and grafting To a seat under a sheet In a world where sofas greet I have never felt as one who just observes As if from other worlds but lacking brains or nerves I had never dealt with evil lucid dreams Till someone might have screamed about some kinda fire Fire… Fire… Two big bugged eyes I fall so high New world swirls envelop around me As I fall and sink I’m melding and grafting To a seat under a sheet In a world where sofas greet Soak up all the toxins Settle deep and seal your fate Don’t think of going back For you will discombobulate We were once human like you Until our hopes and dreams came true Join us in upheld despair And God’s throne will meet you there Two big bugged eyes I fall, you die New world swirls envelop around me As I fall and sink I’m melding and grafting To a sofa under wings In a world where sofas’s king

You showed the urge to defeat your father I brought the dark side out inside of you I spared the beam from your large intestine And you still got your hand You stand up high and the force is controlled You’ve got my DNA I nside of you I get a feeling when you man the controls I love to hate to love 1-2-3-4-5 let’s watch some planets explode this morning Those years you thought I died were worth it just to see our bonding forming Nothing’s better than the fright and terror as we walk the skies, doesn’t it feel good? Father and son with the dark side’s eyes and a fried face beneath my hood Like dad, like son, the force rises strong I see the emperor has smiled at you The falcon brings rebels in the distance The star of death is yours You stand up high with the force in control With all the strength I passed along to you The secret of the girl will never be told Now let’s build one for you 1-2-3-4-5 let’s watch some planets explode this morning Those years you thought I died were worth it just to see our bonding forming Nothing’s better than the fright and terror as we walk the skies, doesn’t it feel good? Father and son with the dark side’s eyes and a fried face beneath my hood

Brain Matter 03:58
As a cell I served the basis for a conscious life anew From inside I’m reaching out to set controls just right for you Am I you? Or are you me? Who’s whose? Do you think? Your body’s just the host? Do I think? What’s a name when it’s named by the one who bears? I think therefore I am the brain Something else besides your head commands itself to be your head From commands from my first cell with all instructions in a thread Am I you? Or are you me? Who’s whose? Do you think? Your body’s just the host? Do I think? What’s a name when it’s named by the one who bears? I think therefore I am the brain Mind over you You’re me Do you think? Your body’s just the host? Do I think? What’s a name when it’s named by the one who bears? I think therefore I am the brain

Draw the life into my soul You tell me where to go You tell me where is home You know my thoughts are owned You pave a single road Dictate the moral code O one above, as your creation Your animation is my reformation I’m created by your hand Everything I do, you planned This world belongs to you There can’t be more points of view I thrive in just 2D You’re out where I can’t see O one above, as your creation Your animation is my reformation O lord, my puppeteer Ain’t no free thinking here Your staff can draw cuts deep To sacrifice your sheep The papers that you write My only guiding light O one above, as your creation Your animation is my reformation You tell me what to say You make me pred or prey You tell me what to fear You make me disappear You tell me where to go You tell me what I know You tell me love to feel You tell me who to kill Draw the life into my soul You tell me where to go You pave a single road Dictate the moral code O lord, my puppeteer Ain’t no free thinking here O one above, as your creation Your animation is my reformation

Multiverses 03:43
I travel time and space but only can see one wibbly wobbly in the universe line I’m always smiling and it’s so hard to see, but deep inside I’m really not doing fine I’d give two hearts that beat for you out in the multiverse But can’t break out Though you’re my rose I had to save you from this universe I can’t break out What if you drew a circle round every atom that’s existed here through all space and time Then could you say there is an outside of that? I know there is and you’re there, out of the line I’d give two hearts that beat for you out in the multiverse But can’t break out Though you’re my rose I had to save you from this universe I can’t break out I travel time and space, it was you and me, and we’d explore an exoplanet or nine I had to save you and it just had to be, my loved companion in another time line I’d give two hearts that beat for you out in the multiverse But can’t break out Though you’re my rose I had to save you from this universe I can’t break out I’d give two hearts that beat for you out in the multiverse But can’t break out Though you’re my rose I had to save you from this universe I can’t break out

You make me feel like a natural woman You make me feel like a hurricane You make me feel like a natural woman I’m a damsel in distress and I’m calling your name You make me feel like a queen A perfect Disney princess dream When I’m with you I don’t know what is even real And want more cavewomen to know it, so I scream You make me feel like a natural woman You make me feel like a hurricane You make me feel like a natural woman I’m a damsel in distress and I’m calling your name You make me feel like a queen A perfect Disney princess dream When I’m with you I don’t know what is even real And want more cavewomen to know it, so I scream I’ve never felt like such a woman before I’m all yours, so open me up and explore You make me feel like a natural woman You make me feel like a hurricane You make me feel like a natural woman I’m a damsel in distress and I’m calling your name

Lone Ranger 04:29
The night’s light is here to shine on the ones who came so far The bright sight of home is lit but no one there sees where we are The others land but an orbit path is calling forth from the mission now Inside this can, they get smaller till communication’s disallowed Time spent alone is never good without a gateway to the mind You start to feel what you know That nobody knows about the emptiness inside And while your time stands still, for everyone else it’s just accelerating fine And very few people last an orbit so vast and how that must affect the mind The night’s light is not in line with the ship, and they’re so far Tonight’s flight heads straight to dark, not even sight of distant stars The only path is a circle back but relative to what’s in sight The ship looks trapped and the ones in back are so ungrateful for their light Time spent alone is never good without a gateway to the mind You start to feel what you know That nobody knows about the emptiness inside And while your time stands still, for everyone else it’s just accelerating fine And very few people last an orbit so vast and how that must affect the mind Time spent alone is never good without a gateway to the mind You start to feel what you know That nobody knows about the emptiness inside And while your time stands still, for everyone else it’s just accelerating fine And very few people last an orbit so vast and how that must affect the mind

Myself is calling to me You’re in the back of my mind Nothing but bad memories How must I leave you behind? You will never turn out better And I will never be whatever Personality… you conformed to be Once adopted, fall into decay I’m glad I’m not from your DNA Don’t I just keep you awake? Obsessed with who I am not Do not emote, for christ’s sake Unless it’s anger you’ve got You’re so handy, you’re so manly Feeling mocking, baby talking “Coward,” you will say While you walk away Once adopted, fall into decay I’m glad I’m not from your DNA Do I remind you they can't cure that? Does it make you feel insecure that I'm not younger you? If my DNA had strands of you, do You feel I might have been like you too? I'm not younger you If I could say one thing you taught me At least I learned of who to not be I'm not younger you Follow the footsteps of your father's Homewrecking ways but I won't bother I'm not younger you Once adopted, fall into decay I’m glad I’m not from your DNA

Healing Hand 04:17
Remember when a guiding light had made you come to me? Remember when I taught you all about my love? Remember when I told you could you always run to me? Remember when you said that I came from above? And then I knew you had me And then a revelation shot itself inside of me And then I knew you had me Tell me, are you happy with rewards that aren’t me? I touched you with my healing hand Then you betrayed me, I forgive you I’ll give you love on the holy land Before they slay me, it’s what I’d do Rememberin’ your holy bath and how you looked at me Remember when I turned the water into wine? Remember when I said to always love your enemy? Remember when you ate my body when we dined? And then I knew you had me And then I knew you had to be the one who’d double cross And baby, you still have me Tell me, do I look good with my legs spread on a cross? I touched you with my healing hand Then you betrayed me, I forgive you I’ll give you love on the holy land Before they slay me, it’s what I’d do Holy spirit’s been in you Holy spirit’s been in you Holy spirit’s been in you And he forgives you Holy spirit’s been in you Holy spirit’s been in you Holy spirit’s been in you And he forgives you
15.
Time stands still this time of night You’re not here, but down the road, there’s love in sight From you, it floats downstream in my mind To guide me as I’m floating freely Peacefully and time is an illusion Hey, reach out to me Through space-time, if you can And then bring me to a galaxy Where you share the sea of consciousness with me

about

"...a total fucking BLAST!" - Mark Kramer, founder of Shimmy-Disc Records

"On Multiverses, Nuclear Bubble Wrap takes us on a journey to spaces both inner and outer, stopping at places both real and imaginary along the way. It’s a worthy follow up to Psycho Delicacy, continuing their musical influences (like the Flaming Lips and the Beatles) while expanding their lyrical content into new territories." -Fandomania

Nuclear Bubble Wrap have returned with Multiverses, the followup to their 2014 cult sensation Psycho Delicacy. A heady trip through the outer space of the inner mind, Multiverses boasts 15 tracks of introspective, atmospheric rock sure to send you on an astronomic trip. NBW pay homage to a mix of influences such as the distorted, layered space rock of The Flaming Lips, the noisy symphonies of early Mercury Rev, the anxious freakouts of Paralytic Stalks-era of Montreal, the lush psychedelic pop of The Beatles, the sublime shoegazing of My Bloody Valentine... and the familial soap opera of Star Wars. Multiverses explores the self-reflection required to forge a better life. Loneliness and self-doubt make up the void of the unknown in songs such as the prog journeys of "Andromeda" and "Lone Ranger." Resentment and forgiveness color tracks like the scathing one-two punch of "Fermata Over a Whole Rest as a Pun" and "Healing Hand." The lush, celestial psych-pop of highlight "Pretty Rings" makes beauty from pollution, and the transcendent closer "Time Is an Illusion" celebrates the love that connects souls across time and space. Multiverses presents an older, wiser Nuclear Bubble Wrap as a band who have conquered themselves and are ready to take on the world.
