about

As we leave behind the ruins of this planet, drifting through space towards our new home, we suffer from dreaming. With each generation, the nightmares get worse. They dance in the corners of our eyes, and flicker behind our eyelids - long blue shadows in the sunlight on the snow. We half remember them, the dead animals and insects of our home world. Singing, moaning, growling. In the quiet cold of space, they scream us to sleep.

Track Name: when all the animals are dead
We will be lonely
When they are gone.
We will be lonely
When they are dead.

I reach out to love you
But my hands are guns,
I reach out to touch you
But my fingers are knives,
I look at you with love
But my eyes are deadly lasers,

We will be lonely when they are gone.

Stretched out behind our eyelids
Blue shadows on grey snow
Sleeping in the stars we will be cold and lonely…

We will (in the quiet cold) be lonely (in the quiet cold)
When they (in the quiet cold) are gone (in the quiet cold, in the quiet cold)..

We will be lonely
When they are dead.
We will be lonely when they are gone.
Track Name: black fox
You’re a liar and a cheat,
You’re a black fox saving your hide.

You’re a liar and a cheat,
You’re a black fox saving your hide.

Running from a pack of wolves,
You’re running now across the ice,
You’re running from a pack of lies,
You’re running to an empty vice.

You’re running from a pack of wolves,
Your’e running now across thin ice,
You’re running from a pack of lies,
Your’e running to an empty vice.

Run run run run run run
Run run run run run run

I’m a liar and a cheat,
I’m a red bird burning alive.

Running from you, running from you,
Running from you, running from you,
Running from you, running from you,
Running from you, running from you.

We’re running from a pack of wolves,
We’re running now across thin ice,
We’re running from a pack of lies,
We’re running to an empty vice.

You’re a black fox,
I’m a red bird,
You’re a black fox. (You’re a black fox).
Track Name: persecutor
I used to
I used to
I used to
I used to FIGHT
I used to FIGHT
I used to FIGHT

I used to fight
But I lost my might.
The dead turned into demons overnight.
My guilt unveiled, praised and hailed,
For being my greatest work to date.

Now I talk to lost souls,
And I tell them where they can go.
But I can’t seem to get the heels off my shoes
To walk out the back gate.

I won’t knock
And I won’t need
And I can see
That it’s just you and she
And not me at all.

I wish I could blame it on the snowbirds and spells,
Or hanged puppets and pills.
Let’s just forget, let’s just forget,
We ever mentioned fate.

I won’t knock
And I won’t need
And I can see
That it’s just you and she
And not me at all.
Track Name: shady side
I like to walk on the shady side of the street,
I think it’s funny all the funny people you meet.
I like to walk on the shady side of the street,
Out of the sunshine
That’s where you feel the heat.

Late night lust
Curled between your fingers,
Cigarette butts glitter,
Litter the streets.
Sharp quick aches,
Your tongue like a knife,
Like a thief in my mouth,
In and out.
Sharp quick blade, reflecting the moonlight,
Raindrops dry as they hit the concrete.
I like to walk on the shady side of the street,
I think it’s funny all the funny people you meet.
I like to walk on the shady side of the street,
Out of the sunshine
That’s where you feel the heat.
Eyes adjust but the feeling lingers,
And in the dust
Two bodies meet.
Neon lights
Your eyes like a forest,
Like the wind at my throat,
Cool and sweet.
Neon lights,
Or is it the moonlight?
Sputter, mutter, words you’ll never speak.

I like to walk on the shady side of the street,
I think it’s funny all the funny people you meet.
I like to walk on the shady side of the street,
Out of the sunshine
That’s where you feel the beat.

I want to love you
Amongst the broken glass.
I’d like to look for you
In empty bits of plastic.
