Mental Picture You and I Standing under Surreal sky Every picture You and I Waking under Surreal sky Dreaming of An alibi Listen to The distant cry Ours is not To reason why Standing under Surreal sky Looking up How high Look away Can’t if you try Seraphim How high you fly Contemplating Surreal sky Contemplating Surreal sky -- Words and music by Andrew Lawrence Jackson

Ordinary things feel like you’re seeing them For the first time This is the power 
of subtle influence Watch for the signs Maybe time feels like it’s not on your side Watch for the signs Maybe time feels like it’s not on your side Watch for the signs And keep sleep learning Watch for signs that you have crossed over Into an alternate universe Pay close attention There may be clues everywhere Watch for the signs Maybe time feels like it’s not on your side Watch for the signs Maybe time feels like it’s not on your side Pay close attention And keep sleep learning Watch for the signs Watch for the signs Watch for the signs And keep sleep learning -- Lyrics by Andrew L. Jackson; music by Rick Cuevas and Andrew L. Jackson

The Blue Head All shimmery The night sky All glimmery A wordless man Just listening Waiting for A glimmering A hopeless task Poetry Takes off his mask Knowingly Pulls out his flask Flowingly Puts down his pen Stoically The Blue Head Not grinning A blue moon Just spinning The deep blue Unending The Blue Head Descending -- Words and music by Andrew Lawrence Jackson

about

Zru Vogue's first album of this year, Zru Rendezvous, was recorded and released in 2020 BC (before coronavirus). This second Zru Vogue album of 2020, Under Surreal Sky, is from the OG ZRU duo of Andrew L. Jackson and Rick Cuevas (as Zru drummer Patrick Coyne is still locked down in his mountain hideaway). Under Surreal Sky refers to to the strange Bay Area skies during the California wildfires that started with very early-morning thunder and dry lightning strikes and continued with murky orange glowing skies with barely breathable air and moved on from there, making an already surreal year even more so. That was where it began. From there, the song "Surreal Sky" started a process of musical experimentation that evolved into the art-pop manifesto that is Zru Vogue's second album of 2020.
