Original pieces inspired by science and art

Bleed Into One

This song is about synesthesia, a condition in which two or more senses bleed into each other. This can occur in many ways but the most common types include the experience of seeing color with music or letters.

In these lyrics I wanted to explore the way things are all tied together, hence the reference to string theory in the first verse. Some synesthetes experience sensations on their own bodies when they see someone else getting touched (referenced in second verse).


It's no secret to anyone that knows me that I absolutely adore Norah Jones. Her voice and lyrics have inspired me since I first listened to her. In this song, I describe the effects she has on me through soundwaves. We will never meet but pieces of her touch pieces of me.

And this is really what artists, musicians, and writers do, isn't it? We try to create changes in the physiology of another human being without so much as being in the same room (though this can be even stronger in the same room; think live music). Phrases such as 'I write you on my body/I write you in my mind' pay homage to this delicate yet not subtle effect.

But, this being a Melinda song, I of course have to introduce some sciencey concepts. 'Code yourself/In pressure and time' refer to the two variables of sound. 'Vibrate the air' also refers to soundwaves. The rest is pretty self-explanatory. Hope you enjoy!



Do you dream in color?

Does it echo in your ears?

Crevices in my mind

Can taste you in my tears

A fractal voice

As we all sing

Another theory of everything

Tied up in a beautiful String


Senses blurred in violet haze

Notes and photons locked in phase

It comes alive, it comes undone

Bleeding into one

Bleeding into one

Do you feel my hands

Grazing your skin

When I touch myself

Is it needles and pins?

One dimension more

Can you hear it too?

Drench my heart

In shades of blue

There's no divide

It's all gone

When you bleed right into one

Time and space

Are standing still

All the poets have been killed

They're bleeding into one



This vacuum of space

The sky's growing dark

Silence ain't golden

It tears me apart

Kiss me soft

Lips to microphone

Vibrate the air

And I feel you in my bones



I think I love you

You'll never speak my name

But your waves reach me

And isn't that the same?

The voice in my head

It's always been you

Sweeter than cheesecake

Bluer than the blues

Code yourself

In pressure and time

I write you on my body

I write you in my mind
