about

Dreaming of an alternate reality where there is equality in all relationships, and we have balance.

lyrics

1st Verse

Clock hits an opponent like a boxer in a ring,
We speak, nothing is spoken, phone begins to ring.
A troubling omen- or a quiet explosion,
you can’t notice but calmly sip your tea,
while I spill it on my feet.

I try to stifle hope but at the same time,
send signs, don’t let go.
I know you’ve got to go, but I heard a disturbance,
now your phone lights up, but with the taxi service.

Walk away without purpose, I search for your words
but they don’t break the surface.
I know you’ve got to go,
but I pick my fights quietly,
I know you’ve got to go,
but now it’s time that you trust me.

Hook x 2

Life is filled with emotion,
and some run forward,
others sit down or coasting.

I love you not joking, a grandiose notion
there was something about that moment
that had me hoping.
Clock hits an opponent like a boxer in a ring,
and we speak, nothing is spoken, phone begins to ring.

You’re a junkee to his love, like you’re dehydrated on a drip
hooked up on the phone to him.
Can’t go on a trip, without you phoning him.
Is the pulse under your wrist, really worth the burst of anger,
you feel in your fist?

We risk feeling down to the tingle in our fingertips.
It’s so hard to see you like this.
I sip from your lips like a hummingbird from a flower,
a delicate balance between tenderness and power.

Hook x 2

Life is filled with emotion,
and some run forward,
others sit down or coasting.

3rd Verse

See moments with you were golden,
moments with you were stolen,
and I search for your words, and I search for your words,
and I search for your words,
like oxygen in an ocean.
Quotient of 25, impotent search
for meaning in life and we should get to working,
that’s the day Ned Kelly died.
I haven’t slept much,
since I failed to make a decision, bus,
physical contradiction of my conviction in us.

I think of the seas between us, all the puddles and trees,
and dirt and concrete.
And I should trust my twisted gut and woman up.
You said “well such is life”, I say,
“the only parameters are the ones that you designed.”

Hold your nose, hold your breath, hold your own,
we are only prisoners of what we know.

Hook x 4

Life is filled with emotion,
and some run forward,
others sit down or coasting.
