My tribute to one cool ass show. ;-)
Someone recently asked me why I decided to write this tribute to a TV show. Well, recently I found myself struck with the reality that I'm no longer living in the world with my parents. My father passed away four years ago and my Mother last month. I started writing this track to deal with what seems like a surreal and alternate universe I’d now stepped into. It was just a way to conceptualize the grief and move through the process.

The name sonjohn is also a tribute to my parents. They called me S.J. all the time for short.


“Stranger Things”

Ever since nineteen eighty-three
this world turned upside down
disappeared, you left without a sound
and now you’re not around

Stranger things lost in time
I know you’re near
or have I lost my mind

Flickering lights echoes floating by
they pass from realm to realm
Moving through dimensions without fear
connections overload

Stranger things in my mind
I know you’re here
or am I lost in time

A portal to another world
I will find you
In the upside down

Stranger things
I know you’re here
Inside my heart though it’s not quite clear

Ever since nineteen eight three
the worlds turned upside down
you disappeared, you left reality
and now you’re not around
